RE: Bunkhouse class A questions

Our 2007 still works for our kids. My youngest 20 still fits and he's 5'9 or 10, oldest is like me and gets claustrophobic so he uses the couch. But his girlfriend who camps with us a lot is fine on the bunk, both are 23.

RE: In Winter Storage, Should I Run Engine?

I run my generator once a month under load, and take the RV out twice while winterized if there isn't snow/ice on the ground. Been doing that since we bought it.

RE: Warrior Lifestyles

Don't know why the moderators decided to move my post from the original forum as my Weekend Road Warrior is a class C and not a 5th wheel or toy hauler! But at least it got more exposure I guess. All types of toy haulers are welcome here from Travel Trailers, 5ers, Class C & Class A's, heck even cargo trailers and flat beds, bring the toys or not.

RE: Spartan 1245

Congrats, make sure you do a good PDI before you sign any loan/purchase paperwork!

RE: Excessive Tire Wear

Rinehart I see it's a 2015, how many miles on it? How did the tires look before the trip? And the biggest question, what brand of tires do you have on it?

RE: Jeep Wrangler Prices

Hold Off Buying anymore Cheaply Made Underpowered Ridiculously Priced Jeeps. Good News! Ford is bringing back the Bronco. Don't forget you'll be waiting until at least 2019 if not 2020, plus buying the first year of any new model is risky.

RE: First toy hauler 08 fuzion 362

I'd also want to check all the pipes/hoses as those could deteriorate over time as well. Good point and I'd check the black tank, if they left it open all the time you could have a pile of crud below the main line. No idea how to check if you can't see right down the hole, but worth thinking about.

RE: PDI During Winter Question

I have downloaded the PDI checklists If the check list isn't toy hauler specific make sure to bring along some gas so you can dump 5 gallons in the tank and then pump out 5 gallons back out, that's how you test the fuel station. I highly recommend videoing each segment so you can review later. My first RV that I did the downloaded PDI the dealer nearly walked, I told him I just needed access to the RV to check all those things, he didn't want to give me a ladder. But when he figured out I wasn't going to budget he backed down and gave me the time. Congrats, good luck & have fun!

RE: First toy hauler 08 fuzion 362

So it's been sitting unmoved for 9-10 years. I'd say the tires are toast. Suspension and axles need to be checked over as they haven't used or maintained. Get up and take a good look at the roof. If it's been sitting with stuff falling over the roof that could be an issue, but more over you need to look at the roof condition itself. Leaks are the worst enemy of any RV. Has it run on propane or was it on power?

RE: Ramp Door Reinforcement

I'd love to see some photos of that CJ-2A! No need to clean this place up, the maid hasn't been by in years ;)

RE: Slippery Ramp Door!

I'd swing by Sherwin-Willams and talk to the guys there. They sell pain with grit (sand) that would work but you'll need to prep the surface by sanding I would assume.

RE: Toy Hauler extensions

Genius idea. I've lost count of how many people need just a few more inches to upgrade their toy.

RE: Ramp Door Reinforcement

Never seen a toyhauler with more than 2500 to 3500lbs capacity in the cargo area. There are Toy Haulers that have more and some are off the factory floor and some are customized. As for your PM to me critiquing my reply to the OP, I will point out to you that you don't know all the information (nor do I), but you assumed he's over weight when that is not what he was even asking about. Many Jeeps do not weigh in at 5,000. You seem to assume he is hauling a current stock fully loaded Jeep Wrangler JK, but the TJs & CJ's are very common for off roaders and weigh much less. For those that use them off road some reduce the weight even more. For that matter maybe he's hauling a classic Jeep that weights in around 2,000# - we don't know and really it doesn't mater the question he asks comes up on here often as people load Harley's and other heavy toys, many doors bulge a bit when loading these. Thus why he asked for help.

RE: PDI During Winter Question

Having tanks completely filled is a bit of overkill, but it's your RV so do what you want. Key is do not sign any documents until the PDI is 100% complete, they will first send you to the loan/paperwork guy, tell them you will sign off once the PDI is complete and any items that need to be fixed are complete, not until. Stand firm and ready to walk about that. Once you sign it you own it and its now a warranty issue, things move much slower at that point.

RE: How much longer will we get to enjoy camping with our son?

When our oldest hit High School we camped and ATV'd a lot but I knew the days were numbered. By the time they were both in high school we sold the ATVs and bought a boat. Camping changed to us following both boys Marching Band in the fall and then Drum Corps in the summer. One is now out of College and other in college, we still camp a couple times a year and they both enjoy the break from everything. But now my wife and I take trips just the two of us, and we still follow the Drum Corps. It may not always be camping by a stream but we get out and enjoy our RV still. This past Thanksgiving we asked the boys if they wanted to camp, both of them were eager to go. :) My recommendation is don't force it as they get older, go with the flow. Invite their friends along and make sure they get something out of it too. They will come back.

RE: Ramp Door Reinforcement

I'm thinking if you were to place steel angle bar along the outside about where the wheels would go, it might take a few bars to help distribute the weight. Then use something like the Fulton Camper Jack or another heavy duty leg that could be attached before dropping the ramp down to take some of the load.

RE: 2017 27' Weekend Warrior genarator problems

Here is a thread from a few months ago that might help you out, a lot of info as well as photos too. Onan Generator Heat It's helpful to let us know exactly what unit you have as well as which generator you to have too. Since WW has been through at least 4 companies that use the name it's hard to know exactly what you have; Original WW, The RV Factory WW or the Omega RV WW, or even the Extreme Warrior line.

RE: Advice: 2001 Thor Four Winds 31c - Good? Bad?

2001 Thor Four Winds 31c While this is a toy hauler it's also a Class C so many of the posts can be found in that sub-forum. I'm not finding anything over the past year, but I ran a search from the archives, you can find those posts and probably some off topic items, *here* Check out this thread, *Here*

RE: Jeep Wrangler Prices

I bought a used Wrangler, but took me a long time to find the right one at the right price. As already mentioned they hold their value very well. There are a lot of cream puffs out there, often called Mall Crawlers with low mileage and never been off road, then you will find the ones that have been beat up some. It's also very common to find rentals on the market too. The rentals can save money but at a risk; often they are ridden hard. If they are out of Hawaii you need to consider the rust aspect. I've had hose of vehicles from F150s, F350, Cadi, Avalanche and my Wrangler even after 4 years is the most enjoyable vehicle I've ever had. I still look forward to driving it every day, even wit the rougher ride and lack of refinements.
