RE: Selling, what needs repair or replacement?

I would only clean it. The buyer might not even care about tires or batteries if its parked at a seasonal campsite.

RE: Trailer roofs

Parking a trailer indoors helps a ton!

RE: Towing Capacity for New Travel Trailer

Here is some food for thought. My Ram 1500 has an AAM 235 (9.25") rear axle. Mopar rates the rear axle at 3900 Lbs. The axle manufacturer (AAM) rates it at 5500 Lbs. I can't tell you were the difference comes from, but would suspect the P rated factory tires contribute. Axle rating are different than payload... Your springs may need assistance too. They do offer super springs, air bags, etc for the ram 1500. Beefing up the suspension does not straighten the frame though. What I am getting at is: don't be afraid to be at your maximum payload. I was in the same situation and therefore did this research and weighed several times.

RE: Motorcyle rack behind trailer?

This might sound crazy... but can you fit the bike inside the trailer via the regular entry door? You might be able to turn the handle bars in such a way that it will pass though. Maybe go as far as taking off the front wheel and using a stand like a wheel choke?

RE: roof mounted ac vs side mounted ac unit

AC is one of the best features in a camper (compared to a tent). Get the roof AC.

RE: Running roof ac while driving

Can you just leave the roof vents open and a window cracked? I'm picturing a dog head sticking out of a trailer window. hahah

RE: Towing with Tailgate down / Hitch Extender

How difficult is hitching and unhitching with the tailgate down?

RE: Towing with Tailgate down / Hitch Extender

I used to carry a touring Polaris in my Ram's 6.5' bed when I had a TT and had no issues with the gate down and clearance with the tongue jack/etc. My neighbor does the same now with no issues. I'd check first to see if you even need an extender. Hmmm... This is almost exactly what I plan to do, except with a CanAm Touring in my Ram 6.5' bed. Do you have any pictures of what the front of your trailer looks like? My trailer is slightly different then most with an aerodynamic propane cover thing.

Towing with Tailgate down / Hitch Extender

I'm looking at getting a new ATV that is longer than my current ATV. I would need to keep my trucks tailgate down as the rear atv tires would be on the tailgate. Currently I just remove my tailgate as the current atv is shorter and this allows me to hitch up my 19' TT. My TT tongue weight is right about 500 lbs and the truck is a 2011 ram 1500 quad. I know I am on the edge of being over payload, but I did use a CAT scale on several different trips and was ok. Will the WD bars compensate for a hitch extender? I think I would need one about 10" long. I have heard that hitch extenders will reduce the hitches rating by half... but I've also heard that is not true with WD bars. E-Trailer says the extension will reduce the hitch rating by half, but say that for all extensions regardless of length. Does the extension affect payload or just the hitch rating? Thank you.

RE: Is there Age Limits on TT to stay at Current Parks or CG???

I've heard of it mostly for seasonal sites. Although its not like they are going to verify the year... you could fudge it a few, assuming it looks ok.

RE: Is there a good "cheap" WDH hitch on market

Find a used hitch for sure. If you buy new: get a name brand so you could resell it when the time comes.

RE: Portable ice maker, anyone have one of these?

I've been using a large Mr. Freeze (Made by Maxi-Matic) for about 10 years. It works great. Lots of ice, fast. Downside is they are loud and the ice does melt. Cleaning the ice maker is a chore too. I believe Maxi-Matic makes most of the various branded models. I was able to order a replacement for a cracked drain plug without too much hassle also.

RE: Battery Charger Recommendation

Why not use the regular inverter/charger built in?

RE: Where can you rent a Travel Trailer?

As others said... some campgrounds have rentals. Otherwise try craigslist.

RE: Indoor storage question

Are you going to do this every year? There are low profile ac units available.

RE: I'm buying my first big trailer and need some advice.

I towed a 19' tandem axle TT (about 4k lbs loaded) for a few years with a ranger that had a 4.0L. Not completely apples to apples, but now I use a ram 5.7L and towing is much more enjoyable. By more enjoyable I mean travel further per day, not stress as much when its windy or merging in heavy traffic. It will tow it, but it will be slow and high reving. There is way way more wind resistance when towing a travel trailer compared to a popup. However, even with this said- I'd still buy it and hitch it up. Being a single axle: properly loading the trailer is important too!

RE: New guy

I'd also recommend eternabond over dicor.
