RE: Why the hard feelings about the 6.0 Chevy?

I love my 6.0. yea with the 410's it eats gas like no tomorrow but it does the job down nicely. It accually tows our new longer trailer better then out older smaller trailer.

AC in bathroom wayyyy too cold.

On the last 2 or 3 trips with our new trailer we find that the bathroom "per meat thermo" is 10* colder in the bathroom then the rest of the trailer. Its like a meat locker. We would like to shut it off in there. I see they sell vents that close up. If we go that route and close that up, should we open the "main" vent a little on the inside AC shroud itself to compensate for the 1 closed vent.

RE: Towing speeds with leveling / sway bar set up?

I'm old school and still use the Eaz-lift bars and have no problem with the current trailer at 70MPH. Its all about how properly everything is setup. Also my tires that came stock on the Puma said 75 MPH max on the side along with every other trailer brand I was considering.

RE: Ceiling Bubbling up

Our brand new trailer has 2 or 3 spots about 3inches long that have this same problem. Just around the edge. I wondered the same thing but when I went to the dealership to look at some other stuff I went inside other new trailers and found the same thing.

RE: What type of TV for a travel trailer?

We have 2 LED Vizios. 48 for the living room , 19 for the bedroom. I have 2 TV mounts but I take both TVs down each time. JIC I went with new LED's because they are soooo much lighter then the older flatscreens.

RE: Are you kidding?

I work for a bank and love how people just throw them under the bus. How about half of you research what goes into a 100-200 loan fee. The bank doesn't work for free and for the people saying "oh but your getting my interest" a lot of people close after the first few months just to get an extra kick back from the dealer on the total price. I'm sorry but if the fee is 150 bucks and I can camp in the trailer I want. Its worth it. And for the guy who uses his 401K for a loan. That's the worst thing I have ever heard... All the toys you have bank business must be good Naw, its called not having kids. Ive acquired all the toys over a 15 year span. Easier on the wallet.

RE: Are you kidding?

Um you pay extra for everything you buy. I don't see you buying anything at cost. Why do we pay a prep fee for new trailers? Why do we pay doc fees for 250-500 bucks. Title transfers and titles only run 20-30 bucks. Wheres the rest of it go? Dealers in Ohio are still charging a grand for shipping a trailer from Indiana. Why? its only a 4 hour drive from Indiana Its the cost of doing business is all I'm saying. I'm sure most of us have spent 150 bucks on stuff we didn't need. 3 dinners at Applebees with the family making memories. You could have had 3 trips with the new trailer making good memories as well.

RE: Adding a slide toppe/awning

Super easy. Ive done a few and just did the one on my new Puma. About 90 minutes. Helps with 2 people. As with the poster above. Lots of screws!. I went with a Dometic Slide Topper. My other trailers had this one and worked great so I stuck with them this time around. American RV Company for me had the best price. After having them I would never go without one. Esp with our second trip with the new trailer. I did not have it installed yet and we got a freak snow storm the 1st weekend in May and when I slide the slide out in , a lot of snow was still up there, got under the seal ,melted and completely soaked our new interior floor and carpet.... I basically mount the extension arm brackets up snug into the corners of the slide out flanges. From there I use the directions to measure up from there in order to screw in the long bracket. Once that's done it takes 10 more minutes to slide the topper in place and setup !

RE: Do I even need a WD setup?

I had a 03 Springdale 269rlls with a dry weight of 5750 and tongue of 540. I assume my weight when traveling was 6500-6700 and a TW of 650 lbs. I never used a WDH with my truck in sig. I never experienced any sway once properly loaded or anything. Now with the new trailer. It lists 7000 dry and a TW of 1035 I towed this home from the dealer on the ball for 3 hours with no issues. Truck did sag 3 inches but zero sway. I have a class 5 hitch with a drawbar and ball rated for 17K +lbs and 1700tw. I started to use a eazlift to take care of the bouncing but have yet to hook up the sway bar. I did get the truck back up 2 inches as well. But to the original poster. Only you will know if WDH is needed. Everybodys setup is different.

RE: New Palomino Puma

We ended up getting it! Love it. Weird thoug, it tows totally fine. I only use wdh and sway control if we are going on a long long trip but I drove this home last night just on the ball and it was fine for the 3hr ride home. It lists 1025 tongue weight but I disagree. My truck barely moved.

New Palomino Puma

Any thoughts? We really like the 16' 30rkss and will be looking at a few tomorrow. We sold our Springdale too quickly and need to find something since we have a packed camping schedule. We really like the rear kitchen models.

Darker colored trailers.

Does anybody regret getting a darker colored trailer inside and out? Seems many of them out there are dark grays light and dark brown with chocolate interiors and so forth. We're currently in the market for a new one but don't want to get sick of the colors right away.

Purchasing new trailer. Question on axles...

Were looking at purchasing a new or slightly used trailer but from what I see now, may of them still come with smaller tires. I'm a little confused as the one I am looking at is an Innbruck 295SBW. 7300 dry with 2700 cargo capacity. It still has the small 5 lug 205/75/15 tires. I would have thought a trailer that size would have the 6 lug now. Any thoughts. Are they 5000lbs axles?
