RE: A Dinghy Towing Newbie

Be aware that it will cost you $1000 to $2000 to set the car up for towing. Consider buying a used car with the baseplate/braking system/wiring installed. By buying used equipment and installing it yourself you might get the cost down a few hundred dollars.

RE: Towing Equipment installation St Petersburg or Tampa area

I am setting up a 2014 for towing as I write this: The quote from Camping World was MUCH less than local RV shops. CW did an excellent job. I am not a Camping World fan but you should give them a call anyway. Good luck and happy trails, Eric, currently in Las Vegas

RE: CRV 2WD or AWD does it matter?

I just bought a 2014 2WD CRV. I had a 99 CRV with 4WD for over 9 years. I never really needed the AWD capability. It only slipped into 4WD accidentally when passing through gravel a few times. A couple of things to add to the discussion that hasn't been mentioned: The AWD is about $1300 more and it gets 1 MPG less. If you keep the car for 200k miles you will use use ABOUT 200-250 gallons more fuel. On the plus side you will get better resale on an AWD. After 200k miles the difference in resale will likely be negligible. Good luck and happy trails,

RE: Toad Brake System (your opinion)

I have 9.5 years using the M&G system with a break away device. I've never had any problems what-so-ever. As mentioned above; the M&G is virtually invisible and requires only a hookup of an air line.

RE: Roadmaster bracket question

As stated above the EZ-5 does not have a cross bar. I contacted Roadmaster regarding my 2014 Honda baseplate about what I "lost" by going to the EZ-5. The answer is you cannot attach accessories with the EZ-5. Accessories like a rock sheild, quick connect safety cables (I'm now sure what else.) I've always HATED the cross bar and the extra hardware associated with the crossbar/adapter plate including the short breakaway cable. It required me to roll around on the ground to hook all that stuff up. With my new -5 base plate I can hook up without getting on my belly. In addition to that there use to be what I guessed was 40# of hardware on the front of the CRV when I unhooked. Finding a secure place to store all that crappe was always a small problem. With the new -5 there are only two arms to be removed which can easily be stored within the CRV. I've towed my 99 CRV for 9 years without a rock sheild. There is no damage that I can see from not having a rock guard. One cavaet: I have not yet towed with the -5 base plate (I recently got the car.) So use or throw out this information as you are inclined. Eric, currently in Las Vegas

RE: Awning leaking...

I don't know the brand of awning on your Brave but on my Zip Dee awnings with an aluminum wrap the aluminium wrap is fastened to the another aluminum extrusion, mounted on the coach, with a special fabric hinge. I understand the fabric hinge is about an inch wide and has a large bead on both sides of the hinge. Another way to describe it is that it looks the number 8 with a one inch piece of fabric between the two loops. If that fabric is torn....thats where the water is coming from. The fabric hinge is pricey. about $4 a foot. You might go to an awning shop. They may have the material and the know how on how to replace it. Happy trails,
