RE: Size matters...right?

We have been full timing since 2008. We started out with a 38 ft. fifth wheel pulled by a Dodge 3500 diesel. We loved it, but when traveling with other full timers with motorhomes we noticed that they would be setup at least 15 minutes faster than us and I we went to a Walmart for an over-nighter they never had to leave the motorhome. So we decided to trade for a motorhome. we started out with a 38 ft. gasser. After about a year and a half, I was not happy with the way the coach handled and the noise from the engine and tranny being right next to you. We traded for a 2006 Gulf Stream Tour Master 42 ft. DP. We've been happy travelers ever since. Its been a perfect fit for us. There are two things that we think are important for us for full timing, a king size bed and a residential refrigerator. Now most 40 footers will not have a king size bed and if they do there is very little space on sides of the bed. Ours did not have a residential refrigerator and we had a Nocold 1200 that was a piece of ****, so we put one in. Much cheaper than replacing the Nocold. We don't have a tag axle but the ride and handling was so much better than the gasser that we don't see a need for one. And none of that noise up front when driving. We have been in many county parks, state parks and COE parks and never had a problem with our length. Even in pull thru's we've never had to unhook our toad. Bonuses with motorhome over the fifth wheel was much more storage, inside (because of our 7-1/2 ft. ceilings) and out, and the generator and inverter. We really don't see a need for going longer than 42 ft. or a drawback for being that long.

Gulf Stream Tourmaster Entry Door

I have a problem with my entry door on my 2006 Gulf Stream Tourmaster entry door. It squeaks and makes a loud popping noise when opening and closing. It seems to be mostly in the screen door, because it doesn't make near as much noise when the screen is closed and the outside door is moved by it self and it doesn't pop then either. I have tried WD40 and silicone to no avail. There doesn't seem to be enough space between the hinge sections for the lubricant to get in there and I haven't been able to figure out how to get the hinge pin out to grease it. This problem is just driving me crazy.
