RE: Buying New Class A - Purchase Local or Thru RV Wholesaler??

I've purchased three RVs from my local dealership. Each time I price check with the best I can find. There are three big ones. Each time I took that price with me, and factored in a fair price for shipping. Each time they came within reasonable amount so I kept my business local. Part of the reason why is that local buyers are first in line for service, plus they've taken good care of me and continue to earn my business and loyalty. If I were saving a lot I'd be fine with waiting for service but if I can get a good deal and great service I'm even happier.

RE: Onan Fuel Pump

Did you just replace the pump in the same location under the generator? I was thinking about relocating it back at the tank, one so it's pushing instead of sucking, two so it isn't affected by the generator heat. Just put it back where the other one was, figured I've gone 8 years with it there doing a lot of dry camping in our desert and while driving.

RE: Winnebago Scorpion 4014 Pin Weight.

Most of us have found there is very little change in pin weight. At nearly 45' I don't think you'll see any reduction in weight, if anything it might transfer more. Haven't heard much about that RV so not sure you'll find a direct answer. I'd call the factory direct and see about talking to the regional sales person.

RE: Am I cutting myself out of the TH market

All Toy Haulers provide venting, shouldn't be a major issue. Another possible route would be more of a concessions open style, instead of concessions have it setup with housing. http://sleequipment.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/smushed_9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/p/1/p1030202.jpg width=640

RE: Painting the Garage?

When I had our Raptor...That was like 10 years ago brother. I actually thought about doing the same thing. Running the Diamond plate up high after I painted. Yeah it's been 10 years since we bought it. I did put some up on the front of the garage, but of an oops with the wall and my son's ATV. I wouldn't paint under the diamond plate, instead scuff it up and use some liquid nails to adhere it to the wall and a few screws into the aluminum studs. Once the LN sets its pretty solid. I saw my Raptor about 5 years ago, still had the diamond plate in the same spot.

RE: Painting the Garage?

When I had our Raptor my thought/plan was to put up diamond plate around the bottom 2-3" to protect the walls and the seems. Then you could sand and prime the walls above that and paint how you like.

RE: Tough Bugs, what do you use??

Dryer sheets, I keep them in my Jeep and motorhome. They are dirt cheap and work better then anything else out there.

RE: Grand Design to Forest River XLR......need advice....

1. We need every inch of the stated garage length of 12'6". Is this number accurate? Find one and measure, if you must have that amount write it into the contract if you order one, don't trust and don't assume.

RE: lets beat a dead horse again..Tundra tongue weight max

Txsurfer you need to pull out your owners manual and check it out. It should cover towing and maximum payloads and weights. Then once you understand that then you need to take just your truck with a full tank of fuel to a some scales. Usually you can find some CAT weight scales near a truck stop. Get your axle weights, and combined weight. Then you can compare your real numbers to what's in the owners manual and determine your maximum payload. You'll also want to look at your tires to be sure they align with the maximum payload too. Hit up google for, how to determine my trucks payload capacity. Plenty to read and learn from.

RE: How accurate are the Manf.'s exterior height measurments?

I would not trust anything without measuring it yourself. Measurements vary widely in the industry, not all manufacturers measure length or even weights the same. So take your tape measure to make sure fits. Loaded vs. unloaded can impact height too, so measure unloaded with tire pressure at the correct level. Give yourself a fudge factor in case having the trailer at an angle impacts height too.

RE: Class A vs 5th wheel. Full time with kids and LOTS of bikes

A lot will depend on your setup. If you have a garage unit that is just for the toys then you can leave them in theire while your gone. If the garage or back area has bunks then you need to unload, but you have choices. Our previous Raptor had a loft which was ok but hot in the areas we camped without power and the kids would have grown out of sleeping next to each other eventually. We got out of that setup and our F350 and picked up a Class A motorhome and a trailer that I converted to better haul our ATVs and gear. This gave us the advantage that I could haul our boat and now our Jeep. If you get a larger Diesel pusher with more payload you can probably tow a pickup with the bikes in the bed. All about choices, trade-offs and of course, MONEY.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Thanks for the reply, I've got a manual awning but it does give me some ideas!

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

N-Trouble, looks great. Do you need your ladder each time to plug it in?

RE: Question to all WW FS3000 owners

It's really not that tough if you want to wire in an adapter. Most of your lights are all 12v. You could install a cigarette adapter if you can find 12v power, or even something like pictured below which would step down the power. Lots of options. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41s3h-fRT9L.jpg width=400

RE: Question to all WW FS3000 owners

As already pointed you will not have any 110v outlets working in your trailer without the generator, unless, you have a power inverter installed some where. On some RVs these are used to power a TV off the battery bank. I doubt the FS3000 would have come with an inverter. Here is a good resource to learn about the 12v power systems, and batteries in your RV. The 12vote Side of Life

RE: Baby Back Ribs in the RV park today...

I'm more of a St. Louis cut kinda guy, those do look like spares though. It's all good on the smoker though! Friend and fellow camper and I are both big smokers too. Camped a couple years back near the coast, oddly enough no winds. Had the whole campground filled with the smell of Hickory. Lots of jealous campers and visitors :) Good guide to keep around if you don't already have one. http://www.traegergrills.com/teamtraeger/image.axd?picture=2013%2F2%2FPeeletGuideCompressed.jpg

RE: Complete List of Toy Haulers

Just FYI, K-Z RV has stopped making Escalades, Infernos, and the StoneRidge. Their new luxury TH is the Venom. Thanks for the heads up! Updated the list with the new info.

RE: Another Puma Unleashed Thread

It's been a while, maybe 8 or so years, but I recall seeing some RVs that were sold either way and the price difference for 30' units ran around $5,000 for fiberglass. I can't think of any off the top of my head that are sold that way today but you might see if Jayco does.
