RE: Gas for Generator

The metal eagle cans are the way to go. They work well.

RE: Firestone Airbags for Dodge Ram

I put them in my 2011 ram 1500. I'm not sure how much of a difference they make...

RE: new to TH's and looking for advice on SxS

I wouldn't want a diesel... It's hard enough to find GAS on the trails by me. You wouldn't be able to re-fuel if you decided to trail ride.

RE: Considering Purchasing a Used Travel Trailer

Good choice. A lot of campers start with a pop-up.... we did. Resale value seams to hold better with popups if you decide to upgrade. Plus they are so much easier to tow.

RE: Considering Purchasing a Used Travel Trailer

Staying in a cabin is going to be cheaper period. Renting an boat is going to be cheaper. Renting paintball gear is going to be cheaper. Depends how you want to spend your money. Most kids really enjoy camping.

RE: Considering Purchasing a Used Travel Trailer

Wait a minute... were you thinking about taking 5 year old kids paintballing? LOL

RE: Considering Purchasing a Used Travel Trailer

I live on a lake and also own an travel trailer. Here is my $0.02. Boats are better for busy people who can’t take a weekend off or who’s kids are in sports. Camping is better for young families. Besides the initial purchase price, tires, specialty hitch and brake controller and caulk there isn’t much annual cost. All though, do not under estimate fuel usage. You will get 10 mpg while towing, without an doubt. I don’t travel far and typically spend $1500 in fuel each year for camping trips alone. Buying an money pit mostly depends if the unit had a leak at one point. Otherwise the fridge and air condition are expensive. I find sitting around the campsite boring and we mostly use the camper as a base camp for our atv trips. You really don’t spend much time inside the camper when camping. Renting an cabin at an campground could prove to be more cost effective, less stressful (not towing, not hitching/backing, not storing, not maintaining). If I was in your place: I would buy a boat and rent a cabin on a lake for a week or two a year.

RE: Furnace BTUs 18 vs 30

Heating pads on the tanks is a big plus. I typically don't run my gas heat and use an electric heater... electric is free at most campgrounds.

RE: Want new TT trailer but don't want a "Throw Away"

Pay for indoor storage?

RE: Jayco Feather Floor - Spend $ or not

You could half ass repair it. Just put down some wood laminate flooring over the rotten floor.

RE: Covering camper inside barn

I'm not sure how much dust would get on the inside... These trailers should be water tight. If you must cover it: I would get an RV cover for sure.

RE: Trying to Value: 2006 Coachmen SOA SE 30 DBD

I would try to find a similar model using ebay or searchtempest.

RE: Renting & Insuring a Tow Vehicle

In the US, some people have an option for rental car insurance added onto their existing car insurance policy. Therefore they would be insured for anything they drive, regardless what coverage is on the car itself. I think it would be easier to just rent the truck from somewhere else though. Or as everyone else said: Class C and rent a car too.

RE: Should I rebuild my trans before we take trailer out west ??

I wouldn't risk making the trans worse by opening up the case. I wouldn't touch it.

RE: advice needed on superficial damage

I have done the same thing and managed to rub the green marks the tree braches left out. I think you will be fine.

RE: Enclosed trailer to be camping trailer?

IMO: I would just look for an older/cheaper used travel trailer. In the end, the "real" camper will be a lot nicer and more practical for camping. I've even saw U-Haul trailers at campsites... I would also recommend looking at "work n play" trailers.

RE: Looking for some advice for our steep driveway

That doesn't look too bad. I've seen some roads in campgrounds close to that.

RE: Looking for some advice for our steep driveway

I would be more worried about ground clearance than stopping. If you ride the brakes the entire time, you'll be fine. Use the manual trailer brakes lever. Flipping the axles could help with the clearance.

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.
