RE: Layton toy haulers good/bad?

Skyline has been around in name for awhile, but they are no longer owned by the original owners. Skyline was sold off to Evergreen RV (article here). Good or bad? I can't say but just know that the past reputation may, or may not follow under the new ownership. This same group is now making at least one other iconic named units; Alpha Gold. Skyline's Website does not yet show any Toy Haulers. Here are a bunch of comments about Skyline from the Archives (link here).

RE: 2014 Evergreen Amped 28FS

Thank you so much! He has a sway bar similar to the first one you posted and noted as a problem. His is made by Curt though. He is going to look into the other one. Glad to help out. Encourage him, and/or you to do some research before he jumps to another hitch. The Equalizer is a good hitch, many others make a good WDH/anti-sway hitch too. The bigger, more expensive ones like Hensley and others boast some pretty big claims, but they have a very loyal following. Plenty to read up on.

RE: 2014 Evergreen Amped 28FS

Sway Bar? Do you mean something like a Friction Anti-Sway Bar? Pictured below http://www.title-3.com/images/SwayBar.jpg If that is the case that is a big part of the problem. Not enough hitch weight is part of it but those sway bars are for pop up trailers not anything much larger IMHO. I'd get something more like the Equalizer that has weight distribution and anti-sway features. http://www.hitchsource.com/images/equalizer_hitch_l.jpg

RE: I'm Now Toy Hauler-less

will rent a few different motor homes over the course of the next year or so before we get into the buyers market. Congrats on the sale. What prompted the change? No reason to run off, you're still welcome here :) Good call on renting motorhomes, we made the switch a few years ago and very happy we did. The setup worked well for where we camped and gave me greater flexibility to tow our toys as well as our boat and Jeep now.

RE: Anything bigger than a Smart car?

lincster, this was one of the great things about Weekend Warrior, they really built Toy Haulers for the various segments of the market. They listened to their buyers and built what they wanted. As I recall they often did extras to beef up the units for specific purposes. I think the downfall of the market place now is that they are all mass produced units.

RE: Anything bigger than a Smart car?

There were some customized ones that could haul more. But the majority of production built toy haulers are limited due to the ramp door, length and the capacity of the garage. Anything is possible with enough $$$ but I don't think there is a production unit that can haul much more then a smart car right now.

RE: Transfer switch

Is it normal for the transfer switch to make a noticeable clunk evey time I plug in my shore power or switch from shore to generator? Mine made the same noise. It didn't fail but did get dirty, few times had to bang on it to release the mechanism. After that I took the cover off and blew it out, then ran it a few times blowing out again. Never had issue with it after that.

RE: 295/80R22.5 Latest Tire Prices

I'd check with a dealer about available Hankook tires. Price is great, the ride is better then my Goodyear and beat the FMCA Micheline prices.

RE: e track pulled up

You're best best is to mount through the floor like you've mentioned. It's a pain but it's the best way to secure them. If you don't want to do that then you'll want to get another type of mounting system and secure through the floor and ideally into the frame if you can. E-Track is good if you use the multiple mounting points, but you have a lot more bolts to put in. You probably don't need to put them in every hole but you need to make sure that any place you put a strap is secured.

RE: Glendale Titanium

Heartland made the Titanium 5th Wheel for a while with the "iconic" front cap, guess it did not go over to good on the sales side as that product line was discontinued fairly quickly. Thanks I wondered why I couldn't find any showing up I wondered if it was just on a couple of models, but seems like its gone now. bummer

RE: Glendale Titanium

I think Heartland RV bought the molds, for a while they were going to make the iconic front cap but I'm not sure that ever happened.

RE: Complete List of Toy Haulers

Looks like the Weekend Warrior name is back in full production. I don't know who's behind them but the name is back at least. I see the CEO came from Gulf Stream Coach. Does anyone know anything about them? I don't think Mark is involved as he's with Warrior Extreme, is this the Giant RV group?

RE: Desert Fox 27FS

Generally speaking the DF line is a good solid 4 season Toy Hauler. They tend to run a bit heavy, but from all the one's I've been in and around they are a good solid product. They may not have the flash that some brands have, but when it comes to winter camping they rock.

RE: Which Toy hauler; Cyclone, Raptor or Voltage

Glad you looked at least. Enjoy every minute you can with the kids; we loved camping with ours. Sadly it's college time now.

RE: Which Toy hauler; Cyclone, Raptor or Voltage

RockinTCamp before you just jump back into the Voltage check out the Grand Design Momentum line up, bit more $ but they are designed for full timers. Just a thought.

RE: Oregon Dunes-beach camping?

Congrats, we camped at Honeyman for about 10 years in a row. Few thoughts for you. Bring extra hose and spray nozzel, if you want to rinse your toys off. Make sure you lock EVERYTHING up at night and if you leave, ATVs & gas cans, even your beer cooler. There is a wood shed near the exit to the dunes; wood isn't always the best so as you drive through Glenada there are several places that sell wood a better prices and usually drier too. If you need ATV parts the Florence Yamaha/Polaris store has a great stock. Liquor is sold in State liquor stores, there is one up near Safeway. If you don't want anything fancy after day of riding Mo's Clam Chowder in old town is pretty good. Whatever you do don't park your ATVs on the dirt at the campsite; it's about the only time I've seen the Rangers go off on anyone (I got yelled at once while unloading). Have fun!

RE: Fuzion 371, Raptor 375 or Momentum 350

I am curious if anyone understands what M Class means regarding the Grand Design Momentum. I see their two new floor plans including the 350 are M Class. From what I've read the M Class is a lower-priced Toy Hauler. You are right about the price though need to compare apples to apples. You pay for quality. One of the pluses of the Momentum line is they are designed for full time use, which many manufactures clearly exclude in their warranty information.

RE: Fuzion 371, Raptor 375 or Momentum 350

Weight does not mean quality. Steel is cheaper than aluminum. Raptor has a King bed slide out, there is some weight, larger shower w/tub and dual electric beds. Those items are where your additional weight is. Lately the Grand Design line up has been getting a lot of great comments as far as quality and finish. I'd probably say Momentum, Fuzion/Raptor - hard to say between the F/R which is better, probably like Chevy/Buick back in the day, just a way to have another dealer in the area for a similar product.
