RE: Slideout Topper

Buy new material and replace them. Not difficult to do, but it is helpful to have a helper.

RE: how to decide on buying a trailer - the dream vs reality

Instead of buying new,start shopping for a used trailer. Let someone else take the depreciation hit. Start looking for a 5,000 dollar trailer and pay cash for it. Same for a tow vehicle. Forget a big truck. Full sized vans offer a lot for the dollar. They also make great towing vehicles. You could them with prudent shopping keep your investment to under 20K.

RE: Switching to "on demand" hot water heater?

Actually I was looking at one yesterday at a local RV dealership thats made for small RV's and draws less than 2.4 kw with a 20 amp breaker. 2.4KW = 2400 watts= 20 AMPS @120VAC. That will usually trip a 20 Amp breaker pretty fast.

RE: DRW vs SRW ??

You will run out of capacity before loading much! Tires are rated for what? Times two will probably be around 7000 pounds. Loading 3500 to 4000 pounds onto an already 3500 pounds on the rear axle will exceed tire ratings for sure Read my lips........ YOU NEED A DUALLY, or less trailer!

RE: Prices for Goodyear 614 "G" tires

You might also check into swapping to 17.5 inch tire/wheel package, ending your depending on borderline tires.

RE: Buying a new trailer on ebay - a good idea?

What was it, WC Fields I think said, "there is a sucker born every minute". The other one I like," let the buyer be ware". Do your due dilligenge, take every legal precaution to protect yourself and move foreword. Also be aware, many local dealers will not handle trailers they did not sell.

RE: Fifth Wheel Wiring Issue?

There is your problem, sounds like the converter is leaking AC. Meaning it is DEAD!

RE: Fifth Wheel Wiring Issue?

Pay attention..... BUY A VOLT METER AND LEARN HOW TO USE IT! Check voltage before wasting any more money.

RE: Shopping for used 5er, comparing used Artic Fox and Komfort

I think you would be hard pressed to find better than a Northwood product. They made both Nash and Arctic Fox. Excellent trailers, but like I said heavy!

RE: Shopping for used 5er, comparing used Artic Fox and Komfort

ST means Special Trailer. Most all are made in China to substandard standards. Basically garbage. There are a couple of decent brands, Maxxis is probably the best of the lot. On the 2002 you will get Frilon siding, a durable product. We had a 2002 19B pull trailer for three years. Good product, but like downtheroad mentioned condition is of utmost importance. Search carefully for signs of leaks inside cabinets, below all windows etc. AF uses an in house made frame, Komfort uses a Lippert frame. IMHO Northwood makes a better frame. Komfort in 04 still made a pretty decent trailer. As there is no longer any warranties either could be a decent trailer, IF it is well taken care of, in good shape, has less than 4 year old tires, and your truck can handle the load.

RE: Shopping for used 5er, comparing used Artic Fox and Komfort

ST tires on heavier trailers can be a problem. Besides speed ratings at 65MPH they generally have very poor reputations. Delamination is where there a failure of the glue that holds the siding, either fiberglas or frilon to the substraight. It can also cause the siding to seperate from the frame. AF had problems around that time. Is the Fox your looking at wood or aluminum frame? If you really like the AF go over and join the afnash club. Great folks with lots of good information to share.

RE: Shopping for used 5er, comparing used Artic Fox and Komfort

Buggest minus of Foxes is probably the ST tires. I cant remember what year they started using aluminum frames, but it was close around 2002. First couple of years there was some delamination issues. In house frames, built stout for off road. Komfort was OK, nothing spectatular. Lippert frame.
