I just posted an old Trillium on EBay, if anyone's interested in taking a look. Didn't attach a link, as I don't know if that would be against this site's rules or not (and if I'm breaking the rules by posting this, my apologies.). Thank you.
Thanks for all your input on this, everybody. As I'm a bit "mechanically challenged," to be kind, I'm having the dealer install all the hitch parts two days before we pick the camper up. They're family-owned, one of the largest in PA, and get very good reviews. They'll provide a full demo, drive-around and walkthrough the day we pick it up.
As my tow vehicle is on the smaller side, the weight of the TT we selected was of primary concern. We actually bought a Jayco Jay Feather Ultra Lite X17Z, which at about 3500 gwvr, is far enough below the 5000 qwvr on my truck to make me feel more comfortable.
Again, thanks a lot for your guidance here. Didn't mean to almost start a riot!
Agesilaus, The TT is a Jayco 197. I've done some pretty exhaustive research and have found it a good match for the truck's capabilities. We're not looking to drive thousands of miles or go over the Rockies with it - mainly flat, reasonably local trips.
Hi, Folks. I have a 2002 Nissan Frontier V6 4x4, which I'm going to have rigged for towing by the dealer who's selling me a TT (the TT is the proper weight, gvwr, etc. for the TV, so no concerns there). Currently, the truck has no towing gear installed whatsoever.
What is a fair, average cost to set it up properly, with the hitch, receiver, electric, anti-sway, etc? I've been driving a motorhome for years and know virtually nothing about towing, and don't want to get taken to the cleaners.
We just sold the C (need to change my profile). I'll be towing with my 2002 Nissan 4x4 V6, thus the need for a TT on the smaller side. DW is insisting upon a side slideout, which I agree with, so that narrows our options to just a few which will make the 5200 gwvr on the truck.
I think we're leaning towards the Jayco, but if anyone knows of anything else out there I may have not explored, I'd really appreciate it. We love the Lance 1685, but it's a bit pricey for how often we're going to use it.
Hi, Folks. We're looking at purchasing a smaller TT with one slide. So far, the Lance and the Kodiak seem to have the features we're looking for.
Any pros/cons of the two you can share? Or perhaps there's another small/one-slide TT you think is comparable or even better?
It has to have one slide, though, or my wife will not even give it a second look.
