RE: opions on this TH please

Seems like a high price to me. My friend just sold his loaded 2008 23' Weekend Warrior for $6500.00 .

RE: SxS question

I understand the the new law makes it to where you cannot add additional seats to a 2 seater but I thought I heard they grandfathered in older models? What is the year cutoff and how does the law read for wearing helmets? And lastly if you install a child car seat do they have to have a helmet too? Our friends have a 2011 or 2012 Rhino with a full roll cage and seatbelts for everyone. Looking to bring it this coming week to Pismo and just want to make sure we are following the rules. Thanks! As long as the Rhino is pre 2014 your ok with the 4 seats . From what I know and can find everyone in the vehicle has to wear seatbelts and helmets. As for the carseat i'm not sure if that is even leagal to have in the SXS . I just read the laws and didn't see anything about the carseats.

RE: Locks for the Ramp

I just use normal Master locks on mine. As much as I hate to say it the only thing any lock does is keep the honest people honest. Is someone realy wants your stuff they WILL get it.

RE: New Catalyst from Work & Play

I really like the 40WCH as it has pretty much the same floor plan as my 300C, but I have a feeling the storage space is minimal in the kitchen area with the SXS refer. Wonder how big battery bank they come with to run the refer? What inverter do they install? Let us know what you think! With all the lights , refer etc I think your going to need to be someplace with hook up's.

RE: Comparing ATV tires

You get what you pay for usually...BH OG's are tough to beat for an all around trail tire. The best price i have found on the Big Horns is at "Rocky mountain ATV" .

RE: weekend warrior issues

Hmmm. So he worked for THE company that built severely under-engineered structured haulers and now repairs them at a profit. Great business model... JFYI... I admit, am a bit biased as I do own a WW... but the WW TH's for most part where not under-engineered. It was the frames that caused most of the well documented problems of the most popular TH ever built,,, in its time. Not saying that WW shouldn't have handled (lifetime)warranty problems better, just many other TH have the same exact problems. Lippert Frames issues causing numerous structural problems. WW TH's frames were not produced by WW but by Lippert. I've heard anywhere from 65-90% of all TH manufactures use(used) Lippert frames. Leland frame was bought up by Dexter(axles)which was bought up by...Lippert. So seems the Lippert frame use figure could be even higher now. Here is a not complete list gathered before I bought mine and was looking at used TH's... Toy Hauler's that use/used the Lippert frames. Keystone Jaycos Thor Forest River Crossroads Northwood use too, but iirr they now do in house frames... From what I understand Lippert frames made the frames but they were built to the standards that WW asked for because WW was under stating the Gross vehicle weight so they didn't scare customers away . In California if you have a tag trailer over 10,000# or a 5th wheel over 15,000# you are required to have a Class A Non Commercial licence so WW was lying about the gross vehicle weight so prople didn't need that licence. I have had 2 WW's and know the truth about the weights.

RE: weekend warrior issues

I had a WW 3905 and for the first 1 1/2 years I owned it it spennt more time at WW factory trying to get the wall sag problem fixed than I had it at my house. be careful because they cause a lot of damage fixing it each of the 4 times it went back . Eachtime they worked on it when i got it back something else was wrong. One of the main things that happened to it is that when they jacked the walls up the sidewall at the corner where the slide is cracked.They way the solveed the sag problem was they doubled the out riggers.

RE: Comparing ATV tires

A friend put the Duro Power Grip tires on his RZR and everyone liked the looks etc. The problem is that as the old saying goes you get what you pay for because they didn't last near as long as the Bighorns.

RE: Waxing the TH

After checking the prices for someone to wax my trailer here in Arizona, I just had my wife wash and wax the Toyhauler with Mcquires cleaner wax 50 and it only took her two days to do the job. She is getting older and slowing down some but it is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of trailer maintenance as when they were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are overly sensitive, and there’s nothing worse than an oversensitive woman. She had to take a break when she was only half-finished washing and waxing the Toyhauler. I tried not to make a scene. I’m a fair man. I tell her to fix herself a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while. And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too. I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support her. I’m not saying that showing this much consideration is easy. Many men will find it difficult. Some will find it impossible! Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, even if you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging girlfriend or wife because of this post, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile. You're my frickin' hero!!! Although, I hope it's not a new wife you're "Prospecting" for!!! LMAO ! I'm thinking he's lucky to still be alive after that write up. LOL. Hope he doesn't doesn't any fire arms and isn't a sound sleeper. LOL. His wife doesn't go on this forum !!! LOL

RE: 2015 Weekend Warrior At Giant RV

No problems with my WW (Knock on wood) but then again I own a 6.0h Ford diesel.. :D Wasn't it just the TAG style WW that had issues? Not just the tag, I had along with many other a 5th wheel with the smooth sides that the side wall supports weren't strong enuff and the was would sag. For the first 1 1/2 years I owened my trailer it spent more time at WW than at my house .

RE: 2015 Weekend Warrior At Giant RV

I'm still way satisfied with my 04 WW fs3000, I bough mine 4 1/2 years ago as a repo for $10,500, I have had no major issues, just replaced some rotted flooring in the storage compartment and a worn out tongue jack. I couldn't even imagine paying for a new one, I'm in it right now at the "river" 10 years old and still in very clean condition inside and out............https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/827/v92t.jpg I think most of the WW problems were with the traliers with the smooth outer walls.

RE: My first trip out, very overweight.

Here we go again !! You have allready been told by MANY that with that trailer you need a dually but you got mad at everyone because you knew what you were doing !! Now why ask people what you have allready been told the answer and now know ??? My thinking behind that was the differences in the trucks were the additional wheels. The drivetrain and everything else was almost identical. Now im just asking, is THAT what everyone was talking about?? Thats all i want to know. If that is what they were all concerned about then they were dead right. Those two extra tires will really stabalize it that much??? As for my original post, i was mad at one particular person who was being an ass unnecessarily. I thanked people numerous times for the advice. I knew i was going to have to make some changes. I now know exactly what i need to do... Besides the dually, the 4.10s are on their way also. My trailer is every bit as heavy as your and I have 373 gear's . In MY opinion you don't need 410 gear just make's your fuel milage go down.

RE: F-350 or F-450 for Raptor 4014?

I have a 2012 F350 DRW CC and it tows my Raptor 4014 just fine !! When I first got the trailer I had a 2007 F350 SRW which pulled it fine but got pushed around by the trailer so I upgraded to the dually .

RE: Tire question again for Voltage 3600

Les Schwab has stores in many towns I pass through and a reputation for excellent customer care. I will certainly keep an eye on these tires, just like all my tires. I consider the Tow Max an experiment. I've had Maxxis, Goodyear, and several other brands with only one minor tred delamination in 30 some years of towing. If the trailer had come with 16" rims, I would be trying LT's. It could be an expensive experiment. I have Towmax on my toyhauler and Les Schwab has replaced 7 tires under warranty in the last 2 years. Luckly so far I have cought them before they came apart an damaged my trailer. With that being said I have them on approx 6 pther trailers that are not as heavy as a tow hauler and have hod no problem.

RE: Picked up the new home. Road warrior

I felt the same as you. Swore I'd get my money's worth out of them. Checked pressures multiple times a trip. I have the Blow max on 3 car trailers , 2 boat trailers & asst other trailers with no problem. So when I purchased my toyhauler and it had the Blowmax on it I felt the same way that I was going to get some use out of them . I had read all about the stories how they blow up but never had any problems with them on my other trailers. First time out when I pulled into where i was going someone walked up to me and said did you see your tire ?? One of the tires was seperating , so i put the spare on and when i got home went to the tire shop and they gave me a new tire for free so i thought eveything was fine. WRONG . I had 5 more seperate with in one year and was lucky to catch them before they blew up but have since replace them not wanting to take any more chances. From what i have been told by the local tire dealer is that the Blowmax is fine on lighter trailers but he has seen nothing but problems with them on larger trailers. The way I see it is that "Lyrikz" doesn't agree with anything else anyone has tried to tell him so he will just hve to find things out for himself !!! To Bad !!

RE: Picked up the new home. Road warrior

I don't care what your real life weight police have to say !!! All I know from experience is that I won't tow that trailer with a single rear wheel truck.

RE: Towing a Toy Hauler with a F150 Ecoboost

People just can't help taking jabs at me because I opened a discussion on F150 towing. Do you really think I'll let someone take a jab at me and not respond?? What really pisses me off is when certain people say ******* about killing someone because I am unsafe. It's real easy for you guys with big bucks and big rigs to pick on the guys with the little trucks isn't it? Am I now taking a jab at you guys? yes I am, because I don't hear anything negative from the guys in my category. For the 3rd time, if I had a fat wallet of course I would buy a diesel! They are the biggest baddest trucks on the road. I already know that! You don't don't need to go negative just because I can't tow what you do. I maxed my limited budget on a loaded F150. I'm so very sorry that I'm not better off! As an inspector your right maybe I shouldn't ask here, I know safety better than most. Just thought I would try a forum and talk trucks with a few guys, now I know that was a mistake. When you tell me that I'm putting someone in danger it's you stepping over the line. I would not even consider what I'm doing if I thought for 1 second that it was a dangerous move And yes I probably know better than anyone. I've already towed the trailer home and it presented 0 problems. On my usual trips I will only be loading about 1K in the camper. I never carry water and suggest you don't either. It makes for an unstable load. Fill it if you must when you get close to your destination. If my TH ever presents a problem I'll sell the trailer. This is the 3rd one from the same dealer. I'm sure they wold love to sell me another. But from what the professionals have said it is very doubtful I will have a problem. I thought maybe I could have a constructive conversation on this forum, but unfortunately a few select had to make it personal. If you knew me better you would know I'm not the kind of guy you get away with making smart ass below the belt comments, or tell me I'm unsafe. Again I'm finding out some people talk big when they are behind a keyboard. Your absolutely right I don't need you guys to help me make a decision, just thought it would be nice to talk it over with a few new friends. Just wanted a friendly discussion. From the beginning I asked to keep this civil, but some just can't help themselves. Don't ask me not to respond when someone goes negative. YOU ASKED , WE TOLD , YOU DON'T LIKE IT
