RE: First TT Purchase, buying used?

Make sure you can tow the trailer, if you haven't ran the numbers yet. Beside the brake controller, you will need a WDH.

RE: MA title travel trailer

In Wisconsin: trailers under 3k lbs do not need to be registered. If the trailer is under 3K: I don't need a title, because I never need to contact the DMV. Maybe MA is similar?

RE: Parking on steep driveway

X-Chocks are not designed to hold a trailer in place. I don't know what else is available, beside the wedges. It's going to be difficult to get the trailer on and off the hitch ball with weight still on the ball. You'll need to watch your clearance too... you could take out the rear jacks or dump valve.

RE: First TT Purchase, buying used?

Sounds like a great deal.

RE: 1st generation Sequoia purchase

Make sure the frame has been inspected!!! My co-workers 2003 Sequoia needed the frame REPLACED. He was the original owner and Toyota paid for it... $14k to replace the frame on a truck worth $8k. I believe the recall expires within a few weeks (if not yet). He said there was a huge backup of everyone waiting until the last minute of the recall to have the frames inspected. I wouldn't want a truck that had the frame replaced.

RE: First TT Long Haul - Raleigh NC to Madison Wi

IMO, I would try to check out northern Wisconsin. There are some amazing campgrounds a little further north.

RE: Using TT as guest house

Here is some additional information. My Dad is 61 years old and would not have any physical problems getting around a travel trailer. The trailer is an 2005, but in excellent condition. I firmly requested he sleeps in the TT for a few reasons: We don't get a long well... things might get ugly if we are together this long without our dedicated areas. We have different bed times. We like different HVAC temps and watch different TV shows. His 2 night stay turned into 8 nights and I would like to be a deterrent from this turning into an annual thing. We have spare rooms, but none setup a bed. I would honestly be more comfortable in the TT compared to an air matrass. He is allergic to cats and our kitty rules the house.

Using TT as guest house

My father is flying in and spending a few nights at my home. I have firmly requested he sleeps in my TT. I figure he will use the bathroom in my house though. I have plenty of unused bedrooms and bathrooms in the house, but don’t have another bed setup (only sofas). The RV will be plugged in to electricity, the water tank will have some water. The TT has ducted A/C. I figure this is reasonable… can anyone else that has done this comment? (obviously) being an camper myself, I would prefer this- he is not an camper though.

RE: Looking to purchase my first travel trailer

In general, IMO, Jayco's have a good reputation. I own a keystone and have had zero problems though. The 2 year warranty would be nice.

RE: Question for the Hensley/ProPride people

They are expensive and difficult to align (hitching). Otherwise they are great. The ProPride is easier to hitch up, but IMO the owner (Sean) is not very helpful.

RE: Want USA made tires

Carlisle ST are made in the USA. They were made overseas for a short period of time, but are back in the states now.

RE: Tank gauges - how do they work?

I believe the "sensor" uses the liquid to close "the switch"... the same as those water alarms people place near water heaters. The problem is the "sensor". I assume this is just open conductors spaced apart. Any splash or high humidly would cause problems. There is an aftermarket tank sensor system that I've heard is very accurate.

RE: Thinking of buying new or used?

As others have said: It was likely towed over salty roads. Road salt is really hard on trailer frames. I wouldn't think it would be more then surface rust though.

RE: Extra Light Travel Trailer

If your tow rating is 3500 lbs, nearly every travel trailer is too heavy for you. Payload is the number you need to focus on, not tow rating.

RE: Salvage title

A lot of trailers are in floods. Most lake side camping spots ARE camping spots because they are in flood planes and an house could not be built.

RE: Ok, backing up a step.. Looking for advice part 2

$10k is not going to get you much. You need to keep this in mind or look at campers that are not travel trailers. Maybe an Hi-Lo would work? Pop-up would really be ideal for you. Maybe a seasonal campsite, where you don't need to tow? Look at autotrader for 1/2 ton trucks (F150, Sliverado 1500, Ram 1500) and see if you are willing to accept what you'll get for $4k-5k. And then, its going to be difficult to find a TT for $5k.

RE: Dodge ram payload

There's a whole ton of confusion in here. You truck has a payload of 1100 lbs, regardless what the tire sticker says. It's not 1100 lbs x 4. This is just plain bad information.
