RE: Spokane, WA RV Show, January 19-22

Wish there'd be more TC at every show.....they might sell more that way......Salem, OR has about 4 shows around here a year.....be hundreds of RV's and like 2 TC sometimes. Or it will be only like 10 Lance TC and nothing else. At least Apache goes to the Portland shows and takes several differnt lines.

RE: Super truss plus weight distribution hitch close to ground

I have a 48'' extension....my round bars have scraped some pavement over the years. Just make sure the lowest thing is the bars and chains, not your wires. LOL.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

Slide outs on long truck campers are what allow us to keep using the truck camper. 10 year old, 2 year old and a 5 month old plus an 80# Rott take up room. Yes we have a large toyhauler too but when we want to just stay small and go camping like for a weekend the TC with a large slideout works great. The beautiful thing about camping it there are a million ways of doing it. And its a great time no matter if its sleeping in a tent or sleeping in a million dollar diesel pusher.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

I thought that might be one but doesnt look like enough room between the door and the slide to have another one. Even if there was one in between it would be pretty bad angle because the slide would be in the way. You have to hope that this is a preproduction model and items will be tweaked before making a manufacturing run for the customers. I would not be surprised if Northwood is following this thread and taking notes on our reactions. Ha ha....I hope so...I'll offer my truck for a test run and my family would love to test it out for the summer and give a report. I'll post it all over social media too. Dear AF, love our 2011 1150...I can be there tomorrow.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

And why would shore power ever be moved to the ''wrong'' side?

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

I thought I saw a speaker grill above the shore power connector near the outside light on the right side next to the cab over. I also did not see a fresh water fill with these picture angles... I think your right....got to have tunes outside to annoy the neighbors.....

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

$3800 for a generator? If that's right, that's pretty high. I noticed that too. Would pay for a lot of solar and batteries......already have a Honda 2000. But really would depend on what the dealers are offering as a package deal when it came time to actually buy.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

Very cool.....at least it says side door and ''Sofa Slide Topper'' as an option. Can't wait to see what it weighs though.....I'd be really interested in trading in our 2011 1150 for this triple slide if the weight is not much heavier. Just cause it is a triple slide....the slides could be smaller and the weight does not have to be like 500 pounds more....maybe I'll skip the genny and opt for all the solar panels and my Honda 2000. Hopefully it is revealed in details soon!!

RE: What Length Are They Really Referring To?

This article is almost misleading too.... It could also mean that if your toyhauler is 34 feet long your going to scrap trees on the inside corners of the access road with your trailer.....ask me how I know. Basically everyone does it differently..... Oregon state parks are pretty good about it....they measure each spots blacktop length and have pictures on the reservation system of each spot so its easy to know what your getting into. BLM and Forest Service ones are usually the great unknown....the sites might be 75 feet long pull throughs but the access road might be very tight with tight turns from the 40s..... For our truck camper only camping I always just look for 30 foot spots gives some nice room for the stairs to land on pavement as some sites the parking area end in a tree or shrubs. Bottom line is there is no consistent standard around the country.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Added some gas and Seafoam to the fuel station and ran the genset...drained the water heater and blew out the water lines...set up two Dry Z Airs inside. Winter coming up in WA...sigh. You bother with the pink stuff? I did the same on Sunday. Drained fresh water, grey, water heater, blew out with air added some pink stuff to the traps.....added some pink stuff to the fresh water for the pump.... Did the same for our truck camper too. We usually freeze its usually just 30 for the morning..... a really cold snap would be 25 degrees.

RE: 1st View EC 1165 and Host Mammoth

My Honda 2000 ran my 11,000 btu a/c once. But I tried again later and it wouldn't. I don't know what I did right or wrong. Maybe I kicked up the thermostat too fast. This reminds me to try it again. I have 2 of the Hondas. Really haven't used them much yet. I did discover they fit very well in the rear floorboard of the truck. I also have an IPI extended run tank that feeds both gens and the wiring to parallel them. What I want is a storage box for the gas tank to put on a cargo rack. The tank will fit in the basement but I'm not too sure I want to do that. I may be over thinking it though. The 2000 should run the air without a hitch assuming that you shut off the campers on board charger. But if your camping in Texas and it's 100 degrees for 3 months straight. He'll have to basically shut the A/C off to do anything like make coffee or watch TV or plug a laptop in?

RE: 1st View EC 1165 and Host Mammoth

That's why I'm considering eu3000. I'm afraid it would not work well to run the larger A/C. The Yamaha 2400 is a option as it is rated at 2000 continuous watts versus 1600 watts for the eu2000. The 3000 is so heavy to be lugging around. Check out the Yamaha 2800eu. It's only @ 60lbs. I think they are phasing them out but I believe still available. I saw one on eBay recently, new. Mount it on the front hitch and you'll be able to just leave it there.....

RE: 1st View EC 1165 and Host Mammoth

Nothing special about the build other than no on board generator. I am going with a eu2000 or maybe a yamaha 2400 I believe and carry on a front hitch. Mainly to reduce noise and propane consumption(I live in Texas so A/C will be used quite a bit). Will the eu2000 carry a 11000 btu A/C? I would think weight distribution would be a little better also with the generator up front. I have not figured out how to clip the potential order sheet to this thread yet, when I do, I will post it. Had some great comments so far. Any help on how to post the order sheet would be appreciated. Interesting, Texas heat and A/C.....I'd be having the built in genny installed. My PERSONAL choice. :) :) I have the built in genny on mine and we use it quite a bit for pull off the road to eat lunch. Run the a/c for the dog while we eat at Cracker Barrell etc.... yes we also have a Honda 2000 that is handy for use during dry camping. I'm not familiar with the Yamaha's but if I didn't have the built in, I'd get the Honda 3000 and mount it semi-permantenly on a platform on the front hitch.

RE: 1st View EC 1165 and Host Mammoth

So no built in generator? You must be adding solar and more batteries? Or carry a Honda 2000? I love having a built in push button genny....can get the coffee pot going in the morning before going outside :) My coffee's better than yours then because I perk mine. And whenever I pull the gen start cord outside I get to set up the B/Q for a nice steak dinner. :p About the triple slide... I think small is beautiful as long as it simpler, less weight, easier to take care of. I think a lot of folks get too involved in trying to own everything. Just my opinion as is my coffee. Well enough solar power, batteries and inverter and he could make coffee from an electric coffee pot with no genny...hence the other questions too. I'm just curious on his total build plans. :)

RE: Truck Camper on Gooseneck Trailer

Just bare in mind that trailers >10k lb require CDL and I don't think you can get flatbed trailer reclassified as an RV. So in CA you will need 26k weight stickers and those cost about $400 every single year. Note the the OP is in Nevada and CDL is for commercial not personal trailers. So try not to confuse people. In many states we can haul 14k trailers with no issues for personal use. I've had several. Dump trailer and flatbeds for personal use. (I'm an accountant so definitely not for business ) You, Sir should check what you are typing about, or don't type at all. As you can see, Nevada, just like California does require CDL for trailers above 10,000 lb. see page 1 So does Oregon if GCVWR exceed 26k O good grief. Angry much? How about check your local state for your own rules. No? For Oregon A 10k or 12k non-RV trailer would not cause me to need a CDL in Oregon for personal use. It would only require a T plate on my truck. Which i have and I'm registered for 26k combined. And if I had a 12K GVW or less pickup I could have a 14k rated trailer and still not need a CDL. T Plated truck requirement starts with 8K rated trailers. Is not connected to CDL at all. You just start paying yearly for your weight class. So i pay for 26K combined rating for my 10,400gvw enclosed trailer and 14k pickup. My truck camper is included in the 26k

RE: Suspension upgrade??

You first mentioned sway. So I'd suggest a Sway bar.

RE: Loft Space

Don't be scared of ordering one you want....just make sure that you've agreed to the pricing before paying the deposit. So like 30 percent off the MSRP should still be good. Most dealers will be happy to help you as they know it is already sold. And many times the loft is part of the overall design of the entire trailer as many times it is the ceiling of the bathroom, closet, fridge, and some of the kitchen too. If you are just talking about the beds that go up and down I know mine can be removed with 4 pins for each.
