RE: Motorcycle Lift side ways on trailer

Lift will hang over by 6 inches on either side, which will be where the wheel well ends

RE: Resealing Fiberglass Roof

I guess everything needs a touch up after almost 20 years

Resealing Fiberglass Roof

Hello RV'ers. My rig is 18 years old and I need to reseal the seams on the roof once again. I have seen companies that will seal the seams and recoat the entire roof, and it looks great. I have seen a few spider web cracks in the roof so i am wondering if I should do this ? Is it the correct thing to do and have you done it with what results ? Thanks

RE: Motorcycle Lift side ways on trailer

Thanks Ltrip, does your lift hang over the sides of the bed ? If yes how much ? Also did you have to do modifications to attach it to your truck bed ?

Motorcycle Lift side ways on trailer

I am looking to buy a motorcyle lift like a Rampage or other. What do you have, what do you like ? I am thinking of mounting it sideways on a car hauler trailer, so I can put the bike in the front and car behind. Any experience with that and will it work, was a little concerned as I have a Harley touring bike and did not want to get in trouble if it hangs over a bit. Also anyone know a site where people might sell used lifts ? Thanks

Cost for the rebuild was $367. Also they had a hard time getting the thing apart, they finally figured it out, but did not give me the details. I think it took 2 extra days to get it apart. Also they tested it with air and not fluid as their fluid testers were too high pressure for this type of cylinder.

RE: Class A Towing trailer with car and Motorcycle

Bikeboy - The vision in my head is to have the Harley in the front of the trailer, front wheel forward pointing at the rv. Lift the bike up 2 to 3 feet, lock it in, then pull the nose of the corvette under the lift. At least that's how I think it would all work, but from a vision to a reality things always change.

RE: Class A Towing trailer with car and Motorcycle

Thanks for the feedback, been off fixing my RV for the last week with normal, as in something always breaks, repair items. On the overall length issue, I have seen highway patrol in CA pulling people over and measuring the overall length. This typically happens to people coming from the offroad areas in Glamis and Ocotillio Wells. Not seen it anywhere else, but you never know. I had a stacker 10 years back, and now I'm kicking myself for selling it as that is the best solution as someone pointed out. My vision is a small lift just for a Harley, that would be over the vette just a foot or 2. But as someone said, I need to cost it all out. Might just cost the same to buy a used stacker, instead of a 20 ft trailer, beefing up the framing, adding a lift, etc. I gotta run the numbers.

The final solution. I took the cylinder to a local hydraulic shop where I am now in CA and they were able to rebuild it. I installed it yesterday and the slide out works great. Problem solved. Still have not heard back from HWH on a replacement part, so I guess they are many months behind.

Class A Towing trailer with car and Motorcycle

Has anyone put a motorcycle lift in an enclosed trailer to tow behind your RV ? Here's the deal. I want to bring my corvette and my Harley with me when I travel. I looked at a 24 foot enclosed trailer and the bike would have to go at an angle and would be too close to the vette. A 26 foot would be perfect. But I can't find a reasonable priced one. I looked at putting a lift on the RV by the trailer hitch and was quoted $10k, due to the way the frame on my Mandalay was built by the factory. So no go. Now I am thinking I should get a 20 foot trailer, enclosed and put a lift in it so the bike could be up in the air about 3 feet, above the vette. I'm not talking about a service lift. I have seen these garage lifts that with the right framing under them would support the weight. Anyone done something like this ? Thanks

RE: Best Class A fire extinguisher

OK, here is my takeaway: Don't bother with the extinguisher, get the hell out of the RV ! Did I miss anything ? :)

Best Class A fire extinguisher

Was looking at a Video on youtube posted by Andrew Steele, where his new to him used Newell burned up really fast. Very unfortunate for him and his girlfriend, since she had all her belongings in the RV. It got me to thinking that I should replace my 15 year old extinguisher (really dummy), yes really. So what do you guys have and how many ? Thanks
JCat 03/07/22 11:16am Class A Motorhomes

I found a shop in Florida that have done it and would do it, but I'm in CA now. A couple of the shops here want to see it first, so I guess I will have to pull it and then take it to them. I asked Stuarts if they had the replacement part and they did not, but I will ask if they can repair as well.
JCat 02/24/22 04:20pm Class A Motorhomes

I have talked to 1 local shop on the rebuild and they said that some of the HWH are crimped on the end and they cannot rebuild. Does anyone know of a shop that will do the rebuild ?
JCat 02/24/22 10:59am Class A Motorhomes

I checked back with Visone, and talked to Bucky this morning. Although there were 5 2004 Mandalay's shown on their website, the pics were taken when they arrived at their yard, which has been many years back. The part I needed was either not available or had already been taken off the wrecked RV's. But it was worth a call back.

Excellent idea CA Traveler, had not thought of that. Thanks
