RE: Help! 2011 Ford Escape

There's a very long discussion of the transmission problems folks have had with flat-towed Escapes at this link. Looks like in some cases at least Ford did replace transmissions. Good luck

Rabies confirmed in Olympic Peninsula, Wa. bat

Heads up for Peninsula dwellers and travelers: Fella visiting Olympic National Park got scratched Aug. 12th by a bat. He had the presence of mind to capture/turn the animal in, and tests confirmed it was rabid. Park staff is reminding folks not to approach/handle wildlife of any kind, especially if they appear sick and/or fearless of people; and to report any such observed critters. News report here

RE: kid chopping down live trees?

I can't imagine an adult doing this Why not? "Adults" do all kinds of terrible things, often only because they can get away with it. Because they're "adults". I find it disturbing that anyone would automatically presume that some child was guilty of such vandalism.

RE: What to do to correct dog agression to other dogs?

I'll say what everyone else is dancing around: The dog should be put down. It is a danger to other animals- and likely humans, too. The only other viable option is continuous restraint/confinement/muzzling, all of which will only serve to make the dog more miserable than it is now.

RE: Swivel Wheels

Pretty sure its considered a trailer. Things like that tend to bounce a lot and you would want to keep a good eye on the wheel bearings I've seen lots of debate over this issue. I've even seen a manufacturer (can't remember which) state that it doesn't qualify as a trailer but they never showed official documentation. There's a single bit of (supposed) State-of-Idaho documentation floating around specific only to the Idaho Tote. Link to letter But it uses the language "bolted/permanently attached to RV" in its assertion that the unit is simply an add-on. Dunno how a receiver-type arrangement would be perceived, even there.

RE: Another Yellowstone Death

Sad...but: "Another"? Has there been some sort of surge of deaths there lately?

RE: Apache Camping, Everett, Washington

They where angry when they learned what we were getting and could not come within 30% of the price. I completely understand there reluctance to match what was clearly a “loss leader” for the dealer we purchased. At no time did they threaten to not service the out-of-state rig at the time of transaction. It was not until we attempted to schedule our first appointment. And this was a surprise to you? This is the second time you've told us that negotiations were so tense that they were actually "angry" with you. Hardly sounds like you went out of your way to evolve a friendly relationship with them to begin with. Why on earth would you expect them to greet you with open arms when you needed warranty work? Especially given that history, might it not be reasonable for them to expect that you might be more trouble during any other process they're involved in with you? I'm skeptical that any generalities about Apache's willingness (or not) to service rigs not purchased there can be made in this case. I think it's more likely that they just don't want you yourself for a customer.

RE: MA title travel trailer

unless the trailer came from NH. I don't think trailers in NH need a title. Also depends on the age of the camper. No State with Title requirements cares if a trailer didn't need a Title in some other State- it'll still have to have one in its new State. That's why it's important to get whatever paperwork came from the original manufacturer. (Manufacturer Certificate of Origin). Absent that, it's my opinion that a buyer should insist on seller participation in the rehoming process, in whatever fashion satisfies the requirements of the new State. In this case Massachusetts. It may be that simple sworn affidavits would do...but I certainly wouldn't hand over any money until I was satisfied that my STATE was satisfied.

RE: Off Road Aliner?

But to say the Trillium is better in the outback than an Aliner I never said that. I only asked for evidence that the Aliner in the threadstarter is "better". No evidence has been proffered so far that supports that contention. Next!

RE: HANDY TOOL to carry

I like even better at a flea market a couple of years ago. It is a handle that a sawzall blade will snap into and the handle pivots so it can be used straight like the saw shown or at 90 degrees for a pistol grip like saw. Added advantage is all the types of blades available for sawzall. Oh...., yeah. Pretty sure that's the Bad boy RJCarazza mentioned, post before yours. Got one of those in my kit, too! (See below pic). http://www.plumbersurplus.com/images/prod/1/0603999007_lg.jpg width=200 Between the two of these saws I could build a house, beginning with harvesting the trees myself! If I had to. Assuming I'd lost my credit card or the world was otherwise coming to an end or something. ;)

RE: Off Road Aliner?

Trillum Off Road Noticed this on the web, basically you can do this with any small, well tiny fibreglass Caravan.Doing it at speed, another matter (smallest Caravan you can get here is roughly 14ft) . A Campertrailer is roughly the same size , Off Road versions as RoyB has noticed are built like tanks Thanks for making my point. And I'd love to see a vid of one of your Big Tough Aussie rigs- or any others- doing similar terrain "at speed", assuming that you mean at highway speed!

RE: Off Road Aliner?

Flexibility is good when off-roading and the molded fiberglass trailers are not particularly flexible The Aliner in the O.P. is made of essentially the same material, given as "Fibreglass/synthetic composite" at this specs page.

RE: HANDY TOOL to carry

Took awhile for me to see it. Kept tapping the computer screen to start a video. Geezo. Me too- what's the point of linking us to the Oliver trailer website with a pic of the trailer on a computer screen???? Here's a no-frills pic of the one I carry- it is a very handy tool: https://2ecffd01e1ab3e9383f0-07db7b9624bbdf022e3b5395236d5cf8.ssl.cf4.rackcdn.com/Product-800x800/6b89fab9-0efe-4b88-8187-0deb37ddfc71.jpg width=200
