RE: Tailgate while towing question?

I can have my cake and eat it to! Our V-Box holds two golf bags, shoes and pull cart wheels. Note to Cummins12V98, I know where there is another one of these that might be for sale. Both of our boxes were made buy Creative Industries which has gone out of busines. The truck trunk box lid slides side to side to open and the V-Box lid is one piece that hinges foward at middle level. Both are very well made and stay dry inside. The V-Box is mounted with four 1/4-20 machine screws into blind nuts in the bed floor. Truck trunk hangs on bed rails and has a few inches clearance below it so one can carry a few sheets of plywood or sheet rock under it.

RE: $10 certificate for membership renewal

You all should feel good about getting coupons, as Life Members, we never receive a coupon. We just have to look for the best deals.

RE: Tailgate while towing question?

My tailgate says on as well. I don't want people seeing what I have in the back when I drive around without the 5th wheel on. As I have a compressor and generator in the back as well both just below level of the body. They are both locked in, but why advertise the fact - tail gate on.

RE: Generator gone!

Same type used in automotive. The one when you push on a car and it sets it off. You can get them at any auto security store, and I believe I got mine at Walmart. My gen is a Champion 4500 but also sits on the moveable bumper space. Has a small plug so I can remove the Gen when I'm home.

RE: Generator gone!

Hence, why we have insurance. Odds of it happening are low, but yes, it does happen. They have to work to get mine off, and it also has a motion alarm on it. I'm sure someone can figure that out too, but I'm not going to lose my life over it, or you.

RE: favorite feature

I love sitting with the wife, looking out wondering what we should do next while just relaxing in our home.

RE: Where do your pets ride?

Ours weight in at 80 and 74 lbs. They really love to travel. They also let us know when it is time to make a stop. They ride in the truck, back seat only.

RE: Popped off 2 cabinet doors already!!

You can also put a lock on the inside, that is unless you can't get to the inside from a neighboring cabinet. Child locks in that case. Really there are a lot of ways you can go.

RE: Must Have, Don't Need

The only item I need to comment on is the Fireplace. YES, we do winter camping in the North, it was so nice to have it, used it everyday. More so than the Forced Air Unit.

RE: Do you use your external gas grill?

As so many others, we don't use it so I got rid of it. Use the space for storage now. It was a mess to clean, it even got dirty with cooking orders, grease, etc, inside the cab it's stored in. I would never get it again, at least to us it was a waste. On the other hand we use the barbecue all the time.

RE: Fiver following truck

To the left, you see better, to the right, you see a bit less. Same radius.

RE: Dinette vs. table and chairs

We bought our 5'ver with table and chairs, with intention of changing it to a booth. So much for that, the boss loves it the way it is. At Christmas time, we lose two chars (we are only two) and one easy chair and we have room for the Tree and other things. Al depends on where we go. But to tell you the truth, I like the chairs and table myself as well.

RE: champion 3500 Watt Remote Start Generator

I have the model in discussion the 3500/4000 champion, it will not run my air compressor unless I use an adaptor for the 30a twistlock. The 20a just isn't enough juice. As far as noise, I remove my hearing aids - no problem.

RE: battery charging

Don't forget to have you cut-off switched to on for the TV to charge your trailer batteries.

RE: Sold Class A for a 5'ver

I should also say we stayed in 10 degree weather for almost two weeks over Christmas with no problems and have been in the desert a lot with sufficient cooling, but if you like it really cold then one AC might not be enough, we find it OK.

RE: Sold Class A for a 5'ver

Lee, you can't get to the fridg when all closed up, but all we do is open one side or the other about a foot when we need to get to it. But I have a nice box in the back of the truck for the easy things. I have not had any major issues that I couldn't handle myself. I did replace the converter but that was not really Keystone, I dealt right with the manufacture and was very happy.

RE: Cougar Cap Fading..

Mine was repainted, it was fading before I even bought it. They agreed to paint it as part of the deal. It is a 2013

RE: Sold Class A for a 5'ver

I started this thread last September 2013. I've put 8000 miles on my fiver now and so much enjoying it along with the reduced cost of the MH I had. I don't worry about what may go wrong anymore as I can probably fix it if it does. It's all about peace of mind, and we have that now. Just wanted to come back and give my feelings as to date. We are happy.
