RE: Airstream>>

So, IIRC, the original post had to do with trading again. First thing I would say is that y'all are taking a beating on the dollars doing this so often. Why do you want to change and why does she love it? Maybe you need to sit down and list separately the things you each like/dislike about this one and maybe a second list of what your "ideal" trailer would have. Seems like there is a lack of communication here. Consider the kind of camping/traveling you do, how many people, other things that could effect a choice. Are you also having to change tow vehicles? What is your current tow vehicle and would you have to change to find what you like or do you really prefer a MH? Strongly suggest neither of you budge on this until you can come to an agreement ahead of time on your wants and needs. My cousin and his DW started maybe 10 years ago with something like a 27' Outback. Pretty soon he felt the urge to move up to a Class A. Almost before it needed to be washed, he felt the need to move to a different Class A. I believe they're on #4 now and seeing it, you'd expect a country singer to step out. It's gorgeous! But his DW is miserable with it, they truly cannot get into virtually any "campgrounds" and end up at a KOA or similar. The campgrounds that have sites plenty long enough are either on a little narrow road with overhanging trees that they can't clear or the campground itself doesn't have room to navigate the road to get to the site. They take it out maybe 3 or 4 times a year. They don't "camp", which was their original objective....they use it to get from Point A to Point B and it's their living space while they're there. But with their group, they have the biggest and the best. Certainly not saying this applies in your case, but my dear cousin has issues and having something new and different makes him happy for a very short time and then it's time to move on. Just think you need some communication on what you really want and your objective and go from there. Good luck and happy camping. I think it boils down to expense. I have to admit that I am always looking for something different and AS is something that it calls my attention. We did owned a Motor home before and she did not like it. Why? Well she seen it as a money pit tires, this and that and so on everything was money. I still like the motorhomes. Well like they say happy wife happy life , maybe for her as for me maybe some day I will buy an AS before I pass on.

RE: Airstream>>

She claims that she loves our current T.T. End of debate. ;) You are right, end of debate. Wife is always right. No matter what I point out to her about the AS she feels that is not worth the expense. And some one else asked how often we go camping? We go to other states like 2 or 3 times max per season. Because we have another T.T. which is a P/T up in Michigan we go up there 98.9% of the entire season. And is only her and I 3 Yorkshires, and a Labradoodle. End of story maybe some day I be able to own one maybe not. Thank you all for your input in this topic. Kennedy >>>

RE: Airstream>>

Thank goodness for fiberglass and rubber roofs. Are you kidding? I would much rather not have fiberglass sides and rubber roofs. That is one beauty of an Airstream.... no rubber roof to wear out or sidewall delam. Torsion axles are another. Proven longevity another. Aluminum Airstreams will outlast (outside of damage and anything can get damaged even rubber and fiberglass) any other trailer; on a life cycle cost basis is perhaps the least expensive trailer available for it's size and quality proven by real world experience with two thirds of all Airstreams ever made since the 1930's still in use; and with the timeless design wont go out of style in a couple years nor do they have gaudy graphics that seem to be the norm for so many modern trailers today. Give me that Airstream any day. At least it will last longer than the payments.JMtandem, How well the AS stands to hail damage. I had a guy that told he owns an AS and the downsize to it is when it hail what is your opinion on this ?

RE: Airstream>>

Make sure you can stand up in the Airstream. I cannot especially with the rounded roof line.I am 5'5" so I should be ok..

Airstream>>

I been thinking about trading our Minnie Winnie for an airstream. But the DW is not happy about it. She claims that she loves our current T.T. This is creating a conflict between both of us. Its not pretty, we have been thru a T.T. Motor home,and this new one in the last year. She says there is something wrong with me. That no matter what I buy I am never content. Is she right? Please advise.. Thank you, Kennedy>>:(

Winterizing T.T.

Good Morning- I have seen many videos on You tube about how to winterize your T.T. Some do not tell you to leave the faucets open after using the antifreeze ( pink ), Some do. Does it really matter?:h

What is wrong with my slides?

Good noon... You ladies and gents probably heard of this before. In the spring we open the slides, and leave them open all season long till is time to winterized and call it quit for the season. Well this year we did our yearly routine on winterizing, well it was time to close the slides and to my surprise the slides will not close. So I read in the manual and it said that if the battery was dead to try to give it a jump with my Towing vehicle. I did and nothing, so the second thing they suggest it was to jump the motor of the slides. WOW it worked I was able to close the 3 slides. Now is there anyone out there that may know what may be causing the problem, or do I need I new motor?:? Thank you in advance>>> Kennedy>>>

RE: Flat tire!!

You should not reuse the tire that went flat. I wouldn't even trust it as a spare. FastEagle Fast Eagle, so what are you suggesting is to buy a new tire? Please advise. Thank you, Kennedy

RE: Flat tire!!

wmoses it was the road assistant company...On my way back from New Orleans I had a flat tire on the T.T. I was not able to take the lugs off ,so I call for service. They sent someone, he took the flat tire off and replaced it with the spare. He used a battery drill with an 1/2 inch socket on it. ... To my surprise the lug nuts where loose, here I was thinking that this drill torqued the lugs to specs and that everything was ok. This tire could of came off at any time. What kind of service people are this?:M Who is this "they" who sent someone? A drill with a socket will troque the nut to some unknown torque which, in your case, was clearly insufficient. In other words this is a lesson learned - battery operated drill should not be used anywhere hnear a wheel. Even an electric drill. Maybe one of those compressed air drivers with torque sticks in a pinch, but I don't like them. I prefer a torque wrench or tighten by hand.

RE: Winterizing pump hose attachment

I watched the video in the link below on how to winterize a tt. Can anyone tell me where to find the hose that you put in the antifreeze and attach to the water pump? I tried searching a few online stores and I cannot find them. Video Link dee74---- I watch the video, but this gentlemen did not mention anything about the low pint drain hoses..:h

Switching over from class C to class A

Hello this question is for one of my friends. He is planing on selling his class C for a class A. What state would he be able to get the best deal for his buck? By the way he is looking at a diesel pusher.. He heard that Florida has better deals and Texas when it comes to diesel pushers, is that true?:h Thank you All:@

KEY ???

This come as a choker to me. I was not aware that the key that open your outside storage compartment of my T.T. is a universal key. CH-751, why even bother locking this compartment if anyone else can walk around and open it with their own key. Ok maybe I am over paranoid ...This is sad:M

RE: Need opinions about recaulking roof

I'd prep the areas really well and wait for a sunny day (you're in WA) and re-caulk using Dicor Self Leveling Lap Sealant. The prep job is really important. I'd use mineral spirits and a good roughish bath rag (smaller than a hand towel) - prep the area, let it dry out really well, then caulk. FrankShore- I notice that you mention that your 2014 Minnie winne burned, total lost? Please let me know what happen we have the same make and model...:?
