RE: Modifying a new Winnebago

I'd talk to Winnebago about this directly. I'd be concerned about structural integrity if you put in your own window. I'm not sure Winnebago would do it, but it's worth talking with them to see about customizing the unit. We've had a Winnebago bunk unit for 10 years, been a great unit as out kids grew up and we still take it with them even though they are in college. My only suggestion would be to look around at at used Sightseer 35J - one think I like about our is the space and not feeling like we're all on top of each other. I haven't seen your unit in person, but as I did the virtual tour it seemed tight. Just a thought.

RE: Alternate locations for flagpoles

Dave, Do you have a ladder on the The Taj Mahauler? If you do you might check out Flag Pole Buddy I use it and like it since I don't have to climb the ladder.

RE: How many don't pull a TOAD behind their coach?

In our 10 years with our Class A I've not yet setup a Toad. I've pulled our ATV trailer, boat and a few other trailers for events, but never our Jeep. For a couple of major trips we rented a car while we were in one place. Not having a car has forced us to plan better or do without. If we really need something I can be unteathered and pulling out in a few minutes. However, we're not full timers and our use of the RV was for family vacations, now that the kids are in college and beyond the plan is to set the Jeep up for flat towing.

RE: Boondocking~ Simply way to add water ideas?

If you don't have the external hose to suck water, you might have one inside for winterizing, same setup. Just need to adjust the valve so it pulls from the hose not the tank.

RE: First Toy Hauler looking for informed input

Next up is a 2005 Layton Rampage. M385. Serious solar system on roof as well as Onan 5500 gen set. Dual slide. Would love to hear thoughts on the Skyline/Layton Rampage line. The skyline was a pretty decent unit in it's time. I can't say I heard a lot of negative reviews. I did camp next to one and got a tour, seemed pretty solid. A good detailed and thorough inspection and a good price might make it a great value.

RE: Winterizing Catalina Trail Blazer - Toy Hauler

I'm assuming this is a Coachman brand Catalina. I'm not even finding them on their website, but did find a few listed as 2017s so it must be a brand new unit. It "should" have come with an owners manual and usually covers how to winterize. Coachman does have some online manuals that might help.

RE: Which Vent Lid for My Camper

Here are the types of vent lids,by the hinge type. That's the most helpful post of the day! http://www.algonquincollege.com/wellness/files/2014/08/Great-Job-post_it-resized-600.png height=200

RE: Which Vent Lid for My Camper

You should be able to take down the screen from the inside if you don't want to go up top, then get some measurements of the flange. With that you should be able to match up a vent cover at an RV dealership or Wal-mart. At the price difference I'd sure some good inspecting, $20 mark up is nothing to sneeze at but make sure the quality compares.

RE: shower door frame too low.

If it's anything like our 2005 Raptor I would start by pulling the skylight and seeing what structure is above the shower. I think you're right if you pull the cross-brace you need something to keep everything in place. Another thought would be to cut the cross-brace, and replace with something during travel that would lock in place and hold the corners. This might be something that you do along with extended the vertical corners up to the ceiling and hopefully to the aluminum frame. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/bedroom03.jpg height=480

RE: Class A Toyhaulers or alternatives

The Canyon Star by Newmar and the Outlaw by Thor (A & C) are the two that come to mind that are still being built. Gulfstream & New Horizons both had them, but have been discontinued. If you are looking at an enclosed trailer, then you have a ton of options. After our Raptor Toy Hauler we went to a Class A with trailer, fit our family need better.

GT Roach I'm going to move this over to the Technology Corner from Toy Haulers. As others have shared its a popular topic, but you should get better input in that forum. Y-Guy

RE: New rig, Winter camping, everything has gone wrong

I always carry a couple (2-3) small ceramic space heaters, since they are much quieter then the propane furnace, and I can heat the motorhome with them set on low. If it gets super cold the LP furnace supplements them, I rarely run them on high.

RE: Next spring: OR coast

I would make reservations as soon as the window opens, if nothing else so you can get good sites. Fort Stevens and Beverly Beach are two busy campgrounds. Do be aware that time of year that Honeyman H Loop us used by the off road community. Staying closer to the front will be quieter, but since there are other private campgrounds along the dunes it can be a busy time of year, particularly on weekends. Harris Beach: Starting October 1, 2016 A and B loops will be first come, first served until the whole camp becomes reservable May 25, 2017 for the summer season. All D loop sites will be closed until March 16, 2017 Most C loop sites, All Yurts, Meeting Hall will be reservable through the Fall/Winter season. If you are looking for a private campground right on the beach we really enjoy Sea Perch RV resort. Not as inexpensive as Oregon State campgrounds but the view is amazing.

RE: Exterior Painting of Motorhome

If you want some help, pop a want at up on CraigsList, I know a number of painters since one of my staff grew up in a painters family. Most all of the guys do side jobs for cash. You might find somebody that can help you out with the equipment and labor. Just another option.

RE: new toy hauler and new truck

Kudos James on the new RV & Truck. Glad you addressed the weight issue for your safety. You aren't the first to get one home and realize they needed a bigger rig. I'd venture to say we've have a large number of men get in that situation, and even a few who were 'shocked' when they had to tell their wives they needed a new truck :)
