RE: 10' garage real world loading?

Forest service, WA, ID, UT, Paiute and OR ATV trails are set at 50'' NOT 48'' Thanks I was going from memory and 48" stuck in my head. Never had issues in WA or OR just UT. This is what makes two large utility quads side by side in a toy hauler garage very difficult. I really had no problem with our Raptor. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3767874/ramps05.jpg

RE: Ramp door replace with a larger door

I'm having a tough time picturing what you want to be honest. But keep in mind resale value. Personally I'd look for another unit that fits the bill better rather then a massive and probably expensive add on.

RE: Towing With Refrigerator On Propane

I had the same question/concern when we started RVing. Same advice I was given then, do it. But when you pull in to fuel up, turn it off. In our case my kids know when we pull in gas station one of them turns off the Fridge, I verify it and go about our way. Key is to turn it back on once you pull away.

RE: 2012 Attitude 27CBG - frame cracking

Mike thanks for sharing with the forum. Any photos of the crack available? Might be helpful to other members. Glad they are stepping up to resolve things for you.

RE: Where to put for sale ads

Washington works that way but not sure which (if any) other states offer that type of trade-in sales tax break. Most other states do allow a sales tax credit. I think this is an accurate the list of those that don't allow; California, Hawaii, Maryland, Montana, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. Both Kentucky & Michigan have changed their laws in the past few years to allow the credit.

RE: Momentum 355 - anything to watch out for?

No tips but I'll be very interested in reading your take on your new toy over the next couple of years. I have been impressed with the designs and layouts of the various GD models and the things I've read about them. Hopefully you'll continue your luck that you had with the Adrenaline quality with the new Momentum.

RE: New WW at the Tampa show

One of the big pluses is that they are using triple 8K lb axles with G rated American made tires. That right there perked my eyes up and earns some respect! Hopefully others will follow. Hopefully they were on 16" rims.

RE: 21'Desert Fox ATV capacity

I don't think the DF 21SW has really changed all that much over the years. The rear bed should lift up out of the way, the sofa should fold against the wall as well. Should have plenty of room either up the middle or probably a tight fit side by side under the rear bed. I seem to recall the KQs were narrower then my Sportsman so I'd think you can probably get them in side by side if you had to. http://northwoodmfg.com/images/rsync/floorplans/desert-21SW.gif width=640 Here is an older thread with photos from a 2004. link

RE: Raptor

I had a 2005 Raptor 3612, no major issues with it while I owned it. Came with cheap Mission China Bomb tires, and there was no heat in the garage, no AC as I recall but I could be wrong there. That said it's 39' trailer, while a SRW might be within limits I never really felt comfortable towing it with my F350 SRW - I would have felt safer with a DRW. I don't know the weight limits of your truck, you need to do your research, but airbags do not increase towing limits they are great to firm up the rear end but that's it.

RE: recommendation for mattress pad/cover for the stock mattress

We have the Costco topper too, and honestly the mattress still sucks. My suggestion is buy a new mattress. I am pretty sure the RV mattresses were designed by the same guy that built medieval torture chambers. Pads "help" but they can not mask the shortcomings of a bad mattress from the start. Get the measurements of your mattress, as RV sizes are not normal. And visit stores like the Denver Mattress store and others to see if you can find what fits you best.

RE: Password Manager Question

I use 1Password So far very happy with it. Ditto! Used it for years. Founder of the company is very upfront about keeping your passwords YOUR passwords. Syncs across all of my devices if I want it to either via WiFi or Cloud, my choice. It's not the cheapest one out there, but I know I'm supporting a good business that is based in the US.

RE: Houston - We have a Problem! Home RV Pad

What about backing it in?

RE: New to me 2009 KZ Sportster 2910

Congrats on the upgrade. You're going to love towing the 5er and backing up is easier too. Do measure your rear/front bumpers just before you attach the 5er and then after. If you see much change you might consider airbags to keep things level, it will tow better and keep your lights on the road not on Mars while driving.

RE: New WW at the Tampa show

What does that even mean? Are you saying the original Weekend Warrior twas such an amazing quality product to call it a Porsche? The name Weekend Warrior was THE name in the Toy Hauler industry for a number of yeas. They were in many ways the pioneer for the whole market. They may not have been the very first but they were a key early player and one that set the stage that we have today. Weekend Warrior meant Toy Hauler just like Kleenex means facial tissue. I believe his analogy is saying they took a well known and popular name and put it on a cheaper product. I don't know the product enough to say that's true or not though. Hopefully the long term quality is better. That said what many WW owners know is that WW took short cuts and thus ended up with some pretty significant problems for some of their units. It's sort of like the 1950 Sunbeam toaster I still have from my parents, talk about quality. Today the Sunbeam name has been sold and it's cheap junk from China trying to ride on the coattails from a generation. IMHO only time will tell how the new Weekend Warrior RVs hold up.

RE: Bunkhouses - 2008+ Winnie 32K, Georgetown 350TS... ??

Tiffin makes a good product too. You might also look into used units, the depreciation is a killer and it's a bit surprising how many will sell after a year or two. Have fun shopping!

RE: Time to sell my toy hauler. How do I determine its worth?

Several things you can do. Check prices on NADA. Look on other for sale sites to see what they are asking, and if you watch you can have a rough idea of how long they were listed and if they kept dropping prices. Your RV has been removed since it could be seen as a masked advertising attempt, you should still be able to get some assistance in how to best sell your RV.

RE: Bunkhouses - 2008+ Winnie 32K, Georgetown 350TS... ??

TriumphGuy, I really haven't had any issues I wouldn't expect to see on any unit. Our fridge died 3 or 4 years into it (can't recall) we had negotiated on the extended warranty when we bought it and the dealer was amazing about getting a new one installed fast so we could still make our trip. A couple years ago the converter died too, thankfully it was just before the warranty expired and the dealer helped to get a better one installed, had it all covered too. I would have been ticked off if I had to pay for the fridge replacement but I blame that on Norcold more then Winnebago. Ours is on the F53 chassis, I won't any land speed races but it's done great hauling us all over the Northwest, down to Utah and into the mountains there. It does just fine for me. Just replaced tires due to age, even the tire guys said the wear pattern looked real good. The mattress is the only weak spot in ours, should have replaced it a long time ago. One thing I love about the 35J is that amount of storage, there is a ton both inside and out. The rain fall on the fiberglass roof can sound loud the first time out, particularly if you're used to rubber roof. But we've come to love being able to actually hear the rain. We've had some wonderful family memories with our Winnebago. If I were to buy another they will be right at the top of the list. But do your homework and find the best unit for your family.

RE: Inverters on Toyhaulers

It just depends, some Toy Haulers, usually the nicer ones sometimes have an inverter for the TV system, but you need to verify this. These are sometimes part of a factory installed package. A dealer, or you, can install one as long as you know how to and use heavy gauge wiring and ideally keep it close to the batteries. That's the next thing you need to address is a good bank of batteries. Depending on the National Park you may have some troubles with the near 40' Toy Haulers. It's not always the length of the site itself, but the turn around and space to actually back into a site. Pick some of your favorite site and see if they will accommodate the larger Toy Hauler. Older ones are the ones least likely. You are going to be limited to where you camp and ride if you are trying to stay in any National Park or most State/USFS/COE sites unless they specifically state they allow off road ATV/MX bikes. That said places like the Paiute trail have great places to camp, you're probably likely to find some places in NM to camp and ride.
