RE: Toy Hauler Ramp Door Caved In

I found a couple threads in the Toy Hauler forum. I was looking for one, but can't find it right now, one of the members completely rebuilt his door and included photos of the project. Here is one thread: Anyone do a total rebuild of a TH ramp? Another: Ramp door repairs

RE: Toy haulers unite !

Welcome aboard! Don't forget to check out some of the other forums here including the Full-time RVing and the Snowbirds. I'm not sure if you're full timers or not. Where do you usually ride/camp?

RE: 2005 Thor Wanderer. Dealer's Extras?

You really don't need any of that, but the dealer is just selling you what they normally sell everyone. No need to be rude just tell him you don't need those items. You don't need the expensive hitch, but you need one that can handle the tongue weight so check your hitch first. You don't need dual 6v if you are not dry camping, but you will need 1 for the 12v systems; lights is the big one. But you need to watch it since you're leaving it plugged in all the time most cheap converter/chargers can cook the battery so watch the water levels. The LP water heater needs the 12v too, not sure if that one has an electric water heater or not. I've never paid for the dealer inspection/prep. Seems dealers are trying to tack it on after the agreed price now. Agree on an out the door price, no gimmicks. No extra PDI, no documentation fees, etc.

RE: Garage conversion

as tmm2good said plenty of people use a Toy Hauler for other reasons then hauling toys. I've seen them setup as wood shops and sewing rooms. Before you jump a few things to check is the insulation in the garage area and availability of A/C and heat, don't assume there is enough to keep it cool or hot, verify it. Check how many circuits are available in the garage portion and that the power needs match your needs. Finally be aware that Toy Haulers tend to have much heavier king pin/tongue weights compared to their fifth wheel non-toy hauler cousins. Double check your truck capabilities and don't assume a sales person knows what they are talking about. Have fun shopping!

RE: Gun safe for RV

Could you build something that fits under the bed? Lift the bed, then a locking steel top with steel sides? Google "rv under bed safe" I found some ideas there. Check out Monster Vault check out their Mid-Size/SUV Vault Images, maybe something like that under the bed would work if it's bolted to the floor and from of the bed frame/box is cut to fit it.

RE: Replacement fold up couches ?

There are several used RV furniture stores out there, shipping costs might be the killer though. Here is a search here that might turn up some for you, RV Furniture you can also search on Google to see if there is something near by. Some type of RV junk yard is what you want.

RE: Track and Trail 17RTHSE

My opinion is that Gulfstream isn't on the high quality side of things. But times do change and perhaps they have improved. I'd look at the floor plan you like then look at other manufactures, and do some comparisons based on price and your own inspection of the units. For example check out the Forest River Wolfpup 17RP and the Desert Fox 21SW for comparisons. You can find a list of Toy Haulers here; Complete List of Toy Haulers

RE: How much does your dealer location matter in a purchase?

All I can say is that I've purchased three RVs from my local dealer, the first two I got national pricing and negotiated with them pretty hard. Became friends with and still am today with the sales guy. By the time I bought our Class A he didn't play any games shot me a price that was where I wanted to be. A dealer will not sell a unit and lose money on it, so negotiate local if you can but if they won't come down then walk away. I wouldn't give them even $10,000 difference, maybe $1,000 but that's all. But be fair about it, there are hard shipping costs involved so if dealer A is next to the factory and the local isn't don't expect to match without that included. That's my .02ยข

RE: What would you do??

How much would adding a 3rd axle run you and what's your estimated loss if you trade it in? Taking the emotion out of it and just let the numbers talk and see. I doubt you'll be happy even if you add the 3rd axle and doubt you'll recover that expense when you go to sell it.

RE: Buying my first class A

You can click here to visit the Motorhome Magazine Downloadable Dinghy Guides. Grab the 2016 if you want and read it over, it will cover the basics from tow bars, base plates, brakes, etc. That will give you some foundational understanding. Do verify that your TrailBlzer is flat towable by reading the owners manual. Verify the hitch rating on your motorhome as well has a having enough capacity in the motorhome weights as well.

RE: Carson Fun Runner Extreme

Their website is one of the worst out there IMHO. Over the years there have been a number of owners of the Carson line, some seemed relatively happy with them. If you google it you can find some interior photos, but for the wood/aluminum questions I'd call them directly.

RE: Floorplans with dual queen beds or queen bunks?

I think you are right about the toyhaulers. That is a really good way to get a long secondary bed. Now I need to do a little research to find one with reasonable interior and reasonable weight. The new Complete List of Toy Haulers That might help you get started with Toy Haulers. You can probably what you are looking for with a Toy Hauler, but do be aware that many/most have a pretty heave pin/tongue weight.

RE: weird noise on Seismic 4212

After ten cycles does it stop? or does it come back later? Might have a leak in your water fresh water system and the pump is losing its prime.

RE: Auto Transfer Switch just failed

Don't assume it's fried just yet, but you need to be safe about what I'll suggest. I had issues with the transfer switch in my Raptor. I figured I needed a new one, but I didn't. I took the panels off so I could get to it, then while disconnected from all power and the generator off, I removed the panel covering the switch itself. I used an air compressor to blow it out. Then I powered it up, switch it and blew it again. I did this a couple times and never had issue with it again. Another friend had the same problem, he cleans his out about once a year as we both tend to camp around a lot of dust. Might not help you but then again it might. Just be smart around the power.

RE: More haul / less "toy"

The Work & Play line from Forest River comes to mind, but also take a look at the Desert Fox line too, they are very solid trailers, not as much flash but I've known people that have them for years and they love them.

RE: Heartland Quality

how does the quality of Heartland stack up against FR, Keystone, Thor etc. Just an FYI, Heartland is owned by Thor now.

RE: Play-Mor

Didn't realize they're still in business. Agreed! They seem to hang on, but they are not popular among the ownership here at least. Everytime I go to check the site to see if it's till active (for the Complete List of Toy Haulers) it looks abandoned. When I see a copyright date of 2010-2020 it tells me they don't know much about websites, and their heavy used of flash, which many like me don't use means I can't see anything on their website. I just hope they are better at manufacturing and marketing to retailers then their website shows.

RE: Keystone tailgator

Just FYI the Tailgator eventually became the Keystone NRG and then became Energy. But the fold out front "hybrid" never seemed to take off well. Inspect the canvas carefully and try to find out if you can buy replacements at all or if you'll need to have it custom made. Popup or Hybrid forums might be of help on that aspect.
