RE: 40ft toy hauler

So let me ask yet another opinion question. Clean up the trade in TH real good or not so much? As always thank you for your replies. Carl Do you have the trade deal/value done or are you looking to get the value of it when you pull it in? Clean it if you are yet to do the deal. Leave it if the deal is done.

RE: Thermal Package

I am looking at a 2011 Toy Hauler, but it doesn't have the thermal package (insulation/warmers, etc) I really like the unit, but it doesn't have the thermal package. Does anyone know how much it should cost to add this package/ You are looking at used...keep looking. The one you want is out there. You are trying to band-aid the issue/problem with the unit you are looking at.

RE: Are there any quality RV manufacturers?

I have never seen a better floor plan/layout than the Grand Design momentum 380...at least for me.

RE: Are there any quality RV manufacturers?

...A house weighs thousands of tons... Now that is cute...but I think you may be off by a factor of say 1000 on your tons. This is 9,750 tonnes and a bit bigger than your house.

RE: Something to think about..LT or ST tires

I just replaced tires on my truck. First shop I visited would only replace with the factory stock tire size, stating liability issues. The next shop I visited and bought tires from put on the size I wanted, no questions asked. I was only going up one tire size, one load range up as well. Far as I can tell I put on a better tire, so what "Liability" issue would there be. First time I encountered this, I'm always changing to a slightly larger tire on my rides. JMHO. I am not a lawyer, but I have meet some very sharp ones in my time - and those can convince Eskimos to buy refrigerators. This would be all about following procedure. As an expert on the subject, I can make a very convincing argument - and I can argue the opposite. The lawyer's job is to convince a jury (or a judge) that doing something non-standard causes issues. Not hard to do. Does going up a load range increase the tire pressure? Are your rims rated for that? ...

RE: Sewer/black tank smell inside trailer

I did not know that water in the p traps acted as a vapor barrier. I will make sure to fill the p traps before it gets parked. That IS their only purpose in being...fill it with RV antifreeze so it doesn't evaporate (as fast) or freeze.

RE: Cylcone 4200 - Does it exist?

...and whose opinion translates into profit? Good point. I'm not qualified to answer that, but I do have to think the people on RV.net are a well rounded pool for such a poll versus those on the Heartland forum who are probably slightly biased to Heartland products. Myself included... But you are leaving out the "if they just built this floor plan" people they are trying to attract...not saying they will or do but you gotta try.

RE: Rear Axle True?

Take it to a semi trailer tire shop that does alignments. Most will also align RV's. They know what to do. The only sound advice you have so far...

RE: Temperature in the garage

We run a 1500 watt heater in the garage. The factory (fusion) carpet kit helps a lot - meaning the floor has near zero insulation. Leaving the door to the main room with a fan on the floor helps even out the temps in the trailer. The garage is still noticeably cooler then the living room 3 feet away. The other issue is all the heat is near the ceiling, and we use the lower bunk for the kids by night and the garage as a playroom by day. Rig up a ceiling fan and point it up not down...take a box fan and lay it flat 1' from the ceiling blowing up. This forces the warm air down the walls and to the floor. Much better in the winter. If you have a ceiling fan in there already you are ahead of the game. Always reverse your ceiling fans for winter use...that is what the switch is for...

RE: Center Awning Support poll

On my 12-foot awning I got away with stretching across several of the stretch ropes with hook ends linked together... I think 50-inch was as long as you can buy... that helped mine alot from sagging in the middle... http://www.rei.com/skuimage/674919 height=300 Roy Ken Make your own length...Many places sell it in bulk length. Like this...

RE: Non-heated holding and water tank options

I would say in your location the actual freezing of the tank isnt the issue...IF you keep it full...the hoses, pipes and pumps are a different story. Get some heat tape made for pipes and wrap them...and plug it in.

RE: Toy Hauler Forum People are the best

Tell your doctor to order a PET Scan next time. (Maybe they already did?)

RE: Fifth wheel in near future, and need some suggestions!

His Tundra is also going to limit his choices. no, the Tundra will be in the garage! lol. Please, looking for a toy hauler will put me in the 16k 18k #'s, it will be a drw truck! We used to own a Boat, one bath was a problem for us waiting for 5 to 7 persons to get ready to go out, same problem now with camping, just looking to ease our camping adventures. When you say "go out" are you talking "clubbing" or ridding? If you are clubbing maybe you need a shower house tag along trailer...?

RE: Wireless Backup Camera

So if I'm understanding you correctly, you are suggesting that I strap my smartphone to the back of my toy hauler? No, he said he straps his WIFE to the back of the fifth wheel...with her cell phone in hand.

RE: Bumper Pull vs 5th Wheel

My Bumper Pull is 36'6" including tongue. I kid you not it's long but I like having a canopy on the back of my truck to haul extra cargo. Can't say which one tows better because I have no Fiver experience, but I can say I watched a guy backing a Fiver in the same spot I had backed my Rig in a few days earlier before I moved and he had a heck of a time and I just backed right in. Says more about the driver than the fiver...
