RE: Aliner copycats

Yes, Chalet is back in business and doing well with new owners. So far, it's only available in the west. Most owners are happy with them. We have an Aliner, which is the lightest of all the A-frame brands. It can be ordered with/without a cassette potty, soft-sided, or hard-sided dormers, depending on the model. It can also be equipped with a 5k a/c or a Cool Cat heat pump/a/c. We've not had a problem with our Cool Cat, but its locaton under the bed is a pita when trying to access the filter for cleaning.

RE: Towing capacity for older SUV?

You can tow closer to your limit pulling a pop up vs a travel trailer, due to the wind drag of a TT. I towed with a similar vehicle a few years ago (V6 Escape with towing package. It towed a gross weight 3500 pound popup easily (we didn't ever load it to the max), but I felt it when towing a similar weight R-Pod 171 (TT). I wouldn't tow the TT you're describing.

RE: How much off retail to start haggling? New TT

Springdales tend to be heavy. What is your SUV and its specs (towing capacity, real axle, tongue weight limit, etc.)? Your offer depends on the dealer - some already discount heavily, while others list the MSRP on their campers.

RE: Two Travel Trailers one large one very small?

We have two campers - an Aliner Ranger 15 and a Starcraft 14RB. We keep the Starcraft four hours away in a town where our son lives, and we use it when we visit him every month. We use our Aliner to actually camp in. We're seriously considering selling the Starcraft and getting a larger TT, because our grown children and granddaughter would love to join us when we go to the beach, which we do several times a year. We'll keep the Aliner. It's perfect for long trips - saves gas and fits anywhere.

RE: Lance 1475 on a Subrau Outback?

The tongue weight will be way too much for your Outback, if the weight of the trailer already isn't. Many people on the A-frame FB group seek advice about what type of A-frame they can tow with an Outback. Even A-frames are often too heavy (especially the tongue weight) for this vehicle, except for the smaller ones. You also need to take into consideration the frontal area of the trailer.

RE: Wife happy with the things you buy for the trailer?

I am "the wife", and I'm the one who buys stuff for our camper. My husband is okay with it; after all, his road bike habit is rather pricey too, so he can't say much...

RE: Storage (or lack thereof) in a teardrop?

Check out the R-Pod 179. It has more storage than the other models. You can also use slide out drawers under the bed.

RE: Keystone passport 2520

We looked at the Passport 2520, but then looked at the same floorplan in the Coachmen Apex, Coachmen Apex 250RL, and we liked it better. Also, the Apex can be ordered with a tri-fold couch, which isn't available in the Passport. Since we have occasional guests, this is important to us. We're considering this model in the future.

RE: Seeking th perfect Couples Trailer - just me and my wife ...

This one may fit the bill if it's not too heavy: Passport Elite 23RB It can also be ordered with a tri-fold sofa, rather than a jackknife, allowing for occasional company.

RE: Add me to the list of diabetic-dog owners....

Another suggestion: feed your dog a low glycemic diet. There are now several dog foods on the market that fit this need - without going the Rx kibble route. Low Glycemic Diet

RE: Our new trailer is junk.....

I'm so sorry to hear this. We had a similar experience (different issues, but junk trailer that had been at the dealer for months) with a new Passport many years ago. It ended up going back to the factory, and they forgot about it on their back lot for months... Contact the factory yourself and be polite but firm. If you are accusatory, they will be less likely to help you. The good news is that we finally got our trailer fixed and back to us. Good luck!

RE: decided on floorplan, now which manufacturer, need advice

Of the four you mentioned, I would go with the Jayco. A friend has a brother who works on RVs, and he's seen the least amount of problems with them, compared to other brands.

RE: nail file for my dog?

I have an 3-speed dremmel from Harbor Freight Tools. If your dogs have long hair, be sure not to get the hair caught up in the dremmel. You can pull a woman's knee high stocking over the nails up to the foot to get the hair out of the way, exposing just the nails. On my small dogs, I use the dremmel on low. When I had bigger dogs, I used it on medium. You can buy replacement sanding rounds at Home Depot or Lowes.

RE: weight distribution recommendation

I have used the Reese Dual Cam when we had larger TTs and never had any issues. My hitch guy likes this one and also the Blue Ox. He does not like the Equalizer hitch. He said that in his experience, they do very well when new, but they wear out faster than the other two.
