RE: Got new fur baby and now have to make change in vacation

Not real close, but a couple of places come to mind. One is Fort DeSoto, a Pinellas County park with a campground on the Gulf at the base of Tampa Bay. Be sure to book the dog section. Another waterfront option on the Gulf is at Turtle Beach, a Sarasota County park and small campground. A bit pricey and hard to get a res. Another is Oscar Scherer State Park just south of Sarasota, though not waterfront. Lots to do in the area...the beaches are close, there's kayaking at the park, the Ringling Museum, Mote Marine Lab, much more. Sun n Fun in Sarasota is very pet friendly, but not on the beach. It has two dog parks! BTW, the Turtle Beach campground does not accept pets at all. That's the only reason we've never tried to make a reservation there. Oscar Scherer SP is nice, but is not on the beach. You'd have to drive about 15 minutes to get to a beach from there. We're staying there in October.

RE: Over weight Rottie

Feed less and cut out treats/extras. Supplement only with a couple of tablespoons of no-salt green beans at each meal to add filling fiber. A couple of baby carrots at night for dessert - not too many, as they are high in sugar for a veggie. Nothing else. Go for 3 shorter walks per day, rather than one long one to ease the stress on the dog's joints. Consider switching to a grain free/low fat kibble. I've seen good results with Annamaet Lean, and also with Fromm Gold Coast Grain-Free Weight Management Dry Dog Food. You can get them on Chewy.com if you can't find them locally (only available at pet food stores - not Petsmart or Petco). Don't feed what it says on the package - the companies are trying to sell dog food!

Look at R-Pod. A few of the models have bunks. R-Pod

RE: Towing Trailer with a 4Runner

Look at R-Pod. A friend of mine tows one with a 4-Runner with no problem. There are some models with bunks. R-Pod

RE: Towing speed for small pop up ?

Don't travel above your tires' safe speed rating.

RE: Traveling with animals to Fla. Keys -Screw Worm

Thank you for the heads up. We will be traveling to Bahia Honda at the end of March, so we definitely need to be vigilant.

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.
