RE: What everone think of Peterson 5ths?

They are certainly one of the best. I note one person here didn't like that they were using wood wall framing. The reality is, it's not wood is better or worse then any of the other methods of building the body, what is important is the workmenship.. The Excel has some of the best workmenship there is, period. There are a handful (like New Horizon) that are better made, but again why is the quality of the work.

RE: Lance or Wildcat TT

I would certainly go with Lance over WildCat, much better made.

RE: Utility trailer question- how to make it work?

I had a 4x4 and a 4x8 utility trailer. The shorter one was almost impossible to back. But the longer one was designed to fold in the middle for storage I would consider doing something like putting 8 ft 2x4s on the deck to extend your length to 8 ft Assuming you don't want to buy an 8 ft folding trailer

RE: SE WA/NE OR steep roads?

cabbage hills are 7% That's on I-84, From WikiPedia "...The Cabbage Hill grade east of Pendleton is a 6% grade, with several hairpin curves in both directions..." Finding any length of road over 6% is tough due to highway regulations It's easier in Canada, one of the provincial highways there hits 18% for a short stretch, another goes between 4 and 10% for 30km

RE: SE WA/NE OR steep roads?

Near Goldendale is the Mary Hill Loop Road, this is a private road that you may be able to arrange a use of via the Mary Hill Museum

RE: Door sticker says never exceed 1263 lbs of cargo/passengers.

The 1889 weight may not include "options" such as A/C, P/S, etc. In fact the weight of the engine can even reduce the actual cargo rating.

RE: Are You Using HD-BLADE OTA antenna?

With antennas height and size matter. An antenna in your RV window is not going to work as well as the same antenna on your roof

RE: Another missing VIN. 2000 AF 1150.

As I recall the VIN on our 99 Northwoods was almost faded to invisible. Have to remember the "re-engrave" idea.

RE: Where do your pets ride?

Ours always ride in the truck...... NEVER in the RV. The cats hated riding in the rig, so they ride in a carrier, in the truck, between the dogs, the carrier is strapped in. The dogs have their own beds (strapped down) and they are clipped into the seat-belts via a harness. None of our critters can become flying objects. Saw a big DP this past trip that the little yappy white dog was allowed to run loose, he was on the dash, running back and forth as he barked at us as we passed them.:R

RE: Trying to find a used TT - a rant!

The new thing with those "live chats" are they are not live, but a computer.. That's why they don't give any info or answer direct questions., you can tell quickly after playing with them a while.. Some are real people however. Really, wow! I'm impressed I had no idea A.I was that advanced, after all I only have a BS on Computer Engineer, most of my credits for an MS in CompSci and 30+ years of experience.

RE: short or long bed to tow 29' Arctic Fox 27 5L?

You probably can use the short bed. I've never towed a Northwoods with one (that was with a MeToo 20+ years ago). But the angled nose would help I doubt you could hit the cab on any turn going forward. The trick will be backing, you may have to back-and-fill more often with short bed then a long bed. Of course there is a solution, A Pullrite SuperGlide. I actually have one on my 8ft bed (a previous owner) and I can jack-knife to some amazing angles

RE: Another missing VIN. 2000 AF 1150.

I've owned two Northwoods and don't recall -any- place other then the plate where the VIN was located.

RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

.... Second - I spent 42+ yrs in LE including 27 yrs at the state level. Illegal combination is a commonly written cite. The usual violation is over length and illegal 2nd trailer such as pulling a 2nd car/Jeep behind a 5er. A few years back a retired LEO from the mid-west posted he had once stopped someone using a pickup to pull three trailers!

RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

I have pulled a boat behind my fifth wheel here in Texas with no problems . Fairly certain it's legal in Texas

RE: Who has been pulled over for double towing illegally???

It's illegal here but my FIL pulled them from Wa. to Fl. and around the country without being stopped. A guy I know is a WSP and he has stopped people for double tows. I've also seen doubles in state, once around Battleground, north-bound, so he had come out of Oregon!! Just 'cause someone else has gotten away with it, doesn't mean you will.

RE: Moab,

We have stayed at Horsethief Campground. The sites were large and spread out. Would stay there again. Took our truck and drove to the bottom of Canyon Lands National Park. We went in April 2013. Plenty of spaces for smaller rigs. At the time we had a 35" 5'vr but there were still some spots available. We ended up going during the car show in April (didn't realize that it was there) so all the campgrounds were really full. Might want to avoid that week. Love Moab. Going back in October 2014. That's weird, because they DIDN'T kick the people out of HorseThief, and I would guess it's the same local BLM office.

RE: Moab,

Horsethief, good place if you don't need services. Quiet (at least when we were there) and dark skys

RE: Anyone have an old dog die while on the road?

Last year we did a long trip with our 13 Y.O. dog (with gall-stones), our 18 Y.O. cat (with kidney and heart issues) and our 16 Y.O. cat (with kidney issues and two types of cancer). None died. But we carried their recent checkup/medical records. We were really concerned the cancer cat would die, so the plan was find a Vet, cremation and pickup/shipment home. All three are now a year older, the cats still hate going on trips and the dogs love it. But that is still the plan.

RE: Don't rely on Garmin RV760 LTM GPS routes.

I rechecked and found no construction or restrictions at this time between Newport and Florence on Hyw 101. The GPS is wrong by 5 fold. I am just glad I know this area, if I was on the East Coast I could be traveling hundreds of miles on unnecessary roads. But for their volumes of pages of disclaimers I feel robbed. I would not recommend this GPS. Unfortunately all GPS's suffer from similar routing issues. I will bet that there is a section of 101 that it's data-base calls to narrow/short/something In fact it would not surprise me that the tunnel on 101 near Florence is the issue.
