RE: Florida Keys Camping, any recommendation?

Yes. It is on a public street.

RE: Florida Keys Camping, any recommendation?

I know the ramp at Geiger Key was free. I imagine there are a LOT of ramps.

RE: Florida Keys Camping, any recommendation?

It is so expensive to get to the Keys towing a travel trailer, and costs so much to camp when you get there, I've been staying at an extended stay hotel in Homestead and driving down in my convertible. Easier and LOTS cheaper.

Not in key west you can't. There is a boat ramp fright next Door to Geiger Key.

RE: V-10 Excursion missing; no code or pending code

No, darn it, it still misses. Off to the shop.

RE: V-10 Excursion missing; no code or pending code

Could it be a discharged battery? I didn't drive it for about a month because it was iced in. Tried to start it, and it missed so bad it wouldn't run. Finally the battery wouldn't turn it over. I recharged the battery with a smart charger. Didn't want to start, but I kept my foot in the throttle to keep it running. Finally is smoothed out and idled normally. After I warmed it up I tried to get it to miss with a low RPM pull. Didn't miss a lick. I haven't had it on the highway yet, but could the problem have been a low battery? The truck sits a lot because its gas mileage is so bad. The battery turned it over slowly when the problem first presented.

RE: Diesel Ram 1500 terrible Payload

About 10,000 pounds for a 1500 sounds pretty good to me. Maybe in 10 years I will look at one. I don't see how a recreational tower can justify that kind of money for something that is used so few times every year. The depreciation alone would dwarf any fuel savings.

RE: I miss my toy hauler!

http://www.discount-trailers.com/swivelwheel.htm These are a lot cheaper. The SW58 has a 1,000 weight limit.

RE: I miss my toy hauler!

I have 2. An ST1100 and the XT I bought for traveling. I find the XT is sufficient for the day trips I take while RVing.

RE: I miss my toy hauler!

I don't know how small a bike you can live with, but I have a front hitch to mount a carrier for my RV motorcycle. 300 pounds or so plus a lightweight carrier is about all you can put up there. I have an XT225 that is good for anything except an interstate. A WR250 is a little heaver, but its has DOHC, fuel injection and liquid cooling, can just about do it all. Another option is one of the fixed hitch swivel wheel trailers that would let you carry quite bit more. These are legal on a fifth wheel; very questionable on a travel trailer.

RE: Less Young People Camping?

You live in Canada. Apparently things are going well in the land of single payer health care. Here, not so much.

RE: Less Young People Camping?

The economy is undergoing a transformation. There are fewer high paying jobs in manufacturing and other traditional middle class vocations. In a nutshell, that is why the middle class is shrinking.

RE: honda generators

I've done it. It does work. It can be handy in a pinch. Then I discovered my EU2000 will start my AC with everything else turned off at the panel. It is much easier to deal with 1 unit. You may get away with pairing them to start the compressor, turning the thermostat to 50, turning off the 1,000, letting the single generator run the compressor from there.

RE: Lexinton, Ky Boat & Sport Show

I didn't make it to the Louisville show this year, so I was planning to go to the Lexington show. I've had a bad cold the last week so I didn't make it. Every time I go to the Lexington show I'm disappointed.

RE: Jayco "Aliner type" folding trailer

A modern Apache (plastic instead of canvas, pull out beds) would be about perfect. More room and secure enough to overnight in Walmart parking lots. Growing up, we had a Scamper with the blue plastic canvas; next best thing.

RE: 6V Battery Boxes

I didn't use a battery box. The batteries are outside. Leaking Battery acid could only affect the metal crossmember where the battery sits. That is easily replaced if there is a problem.

RE: Tow vehicle

Have you considered one of the largest Trailmanors? You may not need to upgrade your tow vehicle at all. It is a high quality trailer that will be easy to tow and last a long time. The kids won't want to go after they are 17 or so. I have a 33 footer that is so big it is difficult to tow long distances. Now that the kids are older, I don't need that much space. If I had bought a Traimanor I would be able to use it a lot more, especially for longer distances.

RE: Make the switch or not!

Instead of the golf cart, get a front hitch motorcycle/scooter carrier and get a dual sport motorcycle or scooter. I have a Yamaha XT 225 that is easy to load.

RE: Front hitch for truck that connects to tow hooks?

I tried a Bodiak on my Suburban. It sagged. I returned it. I got a Curt for my X and am very happy with it. $60 for someone to install it. Ordered off the internet.
