RE: Designing and Building Your Own Travel Trailer

Wow, you aren't letting grass grow under your feet. Very impressed with the progress.

RE: New steps by Torklift

RE: Up the Creek Campground

To my knowledge no campgrounds in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area have been damaged, even Elkmont in the park is fine and still there. The only one I am not certain about is Bear Creek Village near Dollywood. Fire was very close to them. I can't attest to Up The Creek as I have not been there myself. Reviews are good on it depending on what you expect out of a campground. Their location tells me they should be free from any fire damage. I've heard nothing about Bear Creek Village being damaged either, so I assume it is good.

RE: Up the Creek Campground

Good to hear that they were spared. We stayed there this past summer for a week or so and really liked it. If you're looking for a resort-type environment with pool, game room, etc, then this is not the place for you. No restrooms or tents allowed as well. If you're looking for a wooded setting with generous sized lots within a reasonable distance to Pigeon Forge, you can't go wrong with this place. We've never been fans of 'cheek to jowl' camping in open campgrounds, and found this place to be right up our alley. Spot on review.

RE: GSMNP and Gatlinburg fires

Are you sure it was PF Middle School? We just camped on the other side of the river from them (riverbend campground), can see their football when they have games on Friday night. Wow!

RE: GSMNP and Gatlinburg fires

Reports are still coming in, but the extreme drought we have experience in east tn, as well as the terrible winds last night brought things to a head and rather quickly. Reports are still coming in, and the videos are terrifying to watch. We spent all of Thanksgiving week in Pigeon Forge (we live 75 miles south of there) and came back Sunday. There are also some fires in our county (Monroe) but nothing near like what they experienced in the mountains.

RE: The Accountant

Actually, looking at the specs on line, it looks like that trailer (base empty weight 6250) is well within the tow ratings of an F-150. In fact it could be towed by my 2013 Armada. The trailer actually weighs less than my Open Range 216. Now, filling it with guns and motorcycles would certainly cause the weight to increase but it would still probably be towable by a 150. Don't start injecting real numbers in the thread. Everyone knows it isn't big enough. If it's within specs, it's too heavy, too long, too much tail wagging the dog. Not enough safety margin. Not enough brakes. Will need pixie dust to stop that monstrosity. After all, you need enough truck brakes to stop truck and trailer repeatedly, going downhill both ways, without the trailer brakes working. I wouldn't want to be on the road within 1000 miles of the combo. :-P

RE: Tow Advice F150 1/2 ton

Here we go again. Why oh why does everyone with a 1/2 to truck (or so it seems) wants to tow a big long trailer right close to all capacities????... So, if you buy this trailer, I hope I don't end up on the same hiway with you. Probably for the same reason that everyone thinks that if a truck is close to it's capacities they need a bigger truck. Better keep stay off the highways now, as there are plenty of examples of overloaded vehicles out there. Lot of them far worse than what the OP is suggesting.

RE: Keystone - never again

My current trailer has a 10000gvwr and two 4400# axles. Manufacturers allow for tongue weight when specing axles. I don't neccessarily agree with it, but it's the way it is on most of them. My previous trailer had a 10000#gvwr and two 5300# axles. Different brand and 8 years older.

RE: Framlesss windows VS Framed windows

While I prefer the look of frameless, insulated windows aren't available in frameless that I'm aware of. I do like the sealing with the frameless much better than the frame type. If I were choosing a TT for windows, I would set my mind on the insulated windows. They make a HUGE difference. Hehr 6400's are used in Escape trailers. These are 1/2" thick double-pane frameless. These are an option along with the tank heater pads, spray-on undercarriage insulation, and extra interior insulation. Having said that, the rating of a single-pane window is about R-0.7 and a double-pane with a 1/4" air gap is R-1.7. That's a lot better but still not great. From my experience it mostly helps with condensation issues. I wouldn't go without double-panes, but you will still need a lot of furnace in truly cold temps. One other advantage of the frameless is that there is no frame to conduct cold inside. The metal frame in most RV windows conducts the cold inside and water vapor condenses on it, often dripping on the inside. That is probably the biggest advantage of frameless over framed in cold conditions. Agreed - the conduction of the frames is terrible. I've thought about trying to rework them with a thermal break of some type, but it probably wouldn't make much difference. Perhaps spraying the inner frame with some plastidip would do it LOL.

RE: Better outdoor speakers

Unless your current ones are totally blown out, you likely won't get a ton better sound. Marginally better at best. Reason being - the amps in the radios are terribly underpowered and simply just don't have enough juice to drive a decent set of speakers. The bluetooth route will give you much better sound, but obviously not as convenient as ones mounted on the wall. In your search, look for speakers with the full frequency response of 20-20000 hz. The higher the signal to noise, the better. And ohms as mentioned earlier is a big deal.

RE: Campground Suggestions for Pigeon Forge area??

Temp wise, it isn't much different in PF vs Myrtle Beach other than the breeze off the ocean. In fact, temps and weather are surprisingly similar except for a day's difference or so as the weather travels from West to East (roughly). So, if it's hot in MB, it will be hot in PF. :-)

RE: More ongoing poor workmanship to fix...

My bed was sagging in the middle due to thin plywood and a single 1x2 running longways as a "backbone". 1/x2 was mounted flat, so it was failing as a backbone. The 1x2 came unglued/unattached on one end. I ended up making a support under the bed out of 2x4's and now all is good. But seriously, 1/2" plywood for a queen mattress with a single 1x2?

RE: leave roof vents open during winter?

Mine stay open year round and have maxair vents on them.

RE: Wanting to upgrade stereo and speaker bar

I've been considering a sound bar/sub/surround sound for our TV as well. Some have wireless subs. Once I find one with wireless rear channels that is reasonably priced I will probably get one. Sound bar will fit perfectly under the TV, front channels can mount and hid wiring very easily. those rear channel would be a bear to run wiring. But If I simply have to plug them in to a outlet, I would be golden. OEM speakers are terrible for the radio, that is a fact.
