RE: first time RV towing

I towed a similar-sized TT with a Tacoma a few years ago with basically the same specs as your frontier. It wasn't ideal, but doable. Plan on the truck being sluggish on hills, and drive below 65 mph. Make sure you have a good WDH/sway control, as well as a tow package on your truck.

RE: Pill Bottles

I use them to store Q-tips and meds for a short trip (I put masking tape around the containers used for meds and label one for me and one for my husband) in the camper. They could also be used for a few cotton balls - anything small, really. My pharmacy encourages returning empty containers to them.

RE: Which dental chews are okay for small dog?

I'd always loved split antlers, until we adopted Kramer, our newest chi/terrier mix. He fractured a big tooth chewing on one, and we had to have it removed, because the fracture went up into the gum line. We now let him have Nylabones for power chewers instead.

RE: Seresto vs. Scalibor flea/tick collars

I'm currently using a Sorresto collar on one of my little dogs, and giving NexGuard to my other one, to see if there's a difference. Both dogs are flea and tick free. I give HeartGard Plus for Heartworm prevention. NexGard is more expensive for sure, and very convenient. It also eliminates the need for the dog to wear two collars, plus having to remove the Sorresto collar at bath time or when swimming. I would definitely not double dose with other methods of control with the same purpose.

RE: A very tragic weekend

I'm so sorry for this sudden loss. It's never easy to lose a beloved pet, but when it's unexpected and sudden, it's even harder. My prayers are with you and your wife.

RE: goodbye my friend

I'm so sorry for your loss. Panama sounds like he was a very special dog.

RE: Aframe

My husband and I have had two A Frames. We first had an Aliner Classic (12 foot box), but we found it to be too small. We sold it and bought our current Aliner Ranger 15 (15 foot box). We like it a lot. It tows great and sets up in a minute. If our budget would allow, we would have gotten an Aliner Expedition with two dormers. You need to decide whether or not you can exist in a small space. We're outside a lot, so it's not a problem for us. We have a 60x80 queen bed, a large dinette (makes into a very roomy single bed, when needed), a Cool Cat heat pump/ac unit (central a/c and heat with digital thermostat), sink, hot water, fridge, stove, microwave, cassette potty, outside shower, and several cabinets for storage. We also bring along slide out Sterlite drawers for clothes and dry goods, an easy up, a camp kitchen for cooking outside (complete with electric frying pan and small electric oven, and an electric ice maker. We bring a t.v. if we'll be in a place with a cable connection (Aliners don't have t.v. antennas, but they have cable connection). Yeah, we like our creature comforts!

RE: Towing Aliner with Forester?

No, don't do it, especially a 15 footer (Aliner Ranger 15 or Expedition). The hitch weight will exceed your capability, even on the older models. You don't want the tail wagging the dog. You need a minimum of 3500 lb. tow capacity to tow a 12 footer, and 4500 to comfortably tow an Aliner Ranger 15 or Expedition. Remember, it's not just the weight of the camper, but the weight of the battery, propane, water (if carried in fresh water tank), the hitch, all your stuff, and the weight of the passengers, too, that you have to take into consideration. Please look at something like the Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, any 6 cylinder truck (Tacoma, Frontier), Chevy Traverse, Honda Pilot 4WD, GMC Acadia, etc. Make sure any of these vehicles has a tow package, or else they aren't up to the task either.

RE: Decision : to get an older dog or not ?

Older dogs rock! I'm NOT a puppy person whatsoever. We have two adopted rescues, Maddie and Kramer. Maddie was 2-3 when we adopted her four years ago, and Kramer was about a year old when we adopted him earlier this year (we were told he was older and were shocked when we found out he was still a baby!). In the past, I've adopted a 4 year old lab (he lived to be 11 yrs. old) and also a 9 year old Golden (who lived to be 17!), as well as several middle-aged to senior boxers (4-9 years old). We've also fostered senior dogs, and I LOVE them! The worst dogs we've had at the beginning are a young beagle/bassett and a 4-5 month old black lab (although the black lab turned out to be one of the BEST dogs we've ever had, once he matured, around age 4 and who lived to be 14.5 years old!). I'd aim for a 12-30 pound dog, anywhere between 3-5 years old - perfect in my mind.

RE: Kodak

I'm so sorry for your loss. Kodak was obviously well-loved.

RE: best insurance for RV,,,RV specific ins co ?

We have Progressive Insurance on our cars and our campers. The campers have their own policy. We've been very satisfied with it for many years.

RE: Dometic refigerator not cold in hot weather

Yup, we added a fan on the outside, venting out of the fridge vent cover, and it's made a world of difference in both of our little campers.

RE: Man seen falling into Yellowstone geyser presumed dead

The search for the man's body has been suspended. Officials said that, due to the acidity of the area, there most likely aren't any remains to be found at this point.

RE: Travel Trailers.....what brands to stay away from??

If it's a Keystone product, make sure it's been very well maintained. I've seen a LOT of units of various makes from this manufacturer with delamination issues.

RE: Nexgard or Bravecto chewable flea and tick protection

I use Nextguard on my dogs, and it works well, even down here in the deep south. However, it is expensive and must be used with caution with dogs prone to seizures. I started using it when Frontline Plus quit working here.

RE: Aliner - where to keep clothes?

http://i.imgur.com/sjJ2GbFl.jpg Look behind the storage drawers and you can see the plastic shoe containers at the foot of the bed. You can also see that we've hung holders for micro fiber wash cloths (we use to dry hands and dishes), as well as a hanging paper towel holder. There's also some room above the drawers to store other small items.
