RE: New 5th Wheel Manufacturer

We looked at the Riverstone 39FKTH. Nice until I looked at the outside dumps. Who wants to crawl under an extended slideout to pull a dump valve. Really Riverstone?? Who are your buyers? High end and you can't put a valve handle in reach without crawling under the trailer?

RE: double towing

Been carrying this for awhile, as we planned to travel there with our trailer/swivel wheel. California code Driver Licensing For Double Trailers - Nonresidents 12502. (a) The following persons may operate a motor vehicle in this state without obtaining a driver's license under this code: (1) A nonresident over the age of 18 years having in his or her immediate possession a valid driver's license issued by a foreign jurisdiction of which he or she is a resident, .... (b) Any person entitled to the exemption contained in subdivision (a), while operating, within this state, a commercial vehicle, as defined in subdivision (b) of Section 15210, shall have in his or her possession a current medical certificate of a type described in subdivision (c) of Section 12804.9, which has been issued within two years of the date of operation of that vehicle. 15210. (b) (1) "Commercial motor vehicle" means any vehicle or combination of vehicles which requires a class A or class B license, or a class C license with an endorsement issued pursuant to paragraph (4) of subdivision (a) of Section 15278. In summary, nonresidents may tow two trailers with a non-commercial license IF their base state allows it. IF the vehicle is commercial, the driver would also need a valid medical certificate per 12502 CVC.

20k USA made hitch for rails?

My options seem to be much less than I originally thought. I need a minimum 20k hitch, made in the USA, no slider, that is not sloppy and will work with my already installed rails. Suggestions?

RE: For those with a slide topper under an awning

We have the slide topper under the awning. It was no big deal to have installed since there was plenty of room to attach the slide topper under the awning mount. Thanks! So far the biggest hurdle is dealers/installers that think it cannot be done. Will get some measurements and pick out the topper that provides the least amount of intrusion over the slide, so when the awning is extended, it moves easily past the topper. And you are reading my mind on why. I have used toppers on my past two trailers and won't be without.

For those with a slide topper under an awning

Want to add a slide topper under an awning. Seen it on some rigs on Youtube, but no details. If you have this (like a slide topper over a dinette slideout) that also has an awning above that covers the slide when opened: 1) what brand and model of topper did you get? 2) what challenges were involved? TIA

Status of Grand Design 374th?

Grand Designs website newly lists the Solitude 374th as "Dealer Stock only". The Momentum version, 376th, does not show this. I sent an email to GD inquiring on status and future plans for the "toy box". Will see what I get back. Thought I would post here and see if anyone has heard anything on what is going on. Seemed to be popular. We were seriously looking at one. Many other manufacturers put out their own versions. I can no longer post at GD forum as I haven't paid yet, but there are no conversations about it from the search I can do. So, if anyone has any information on the status of the 374th, please post. Thank you.

RE: question on on hitches on the back of fifth wheels

So I'd love to have a TH but the wife does not so I'm in the same boat but here's a video of a guy fixing a bumper from only carrying bicycles on a curt receiver on a stock 5th wheel bumper. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIwtglKiBwk This is why I would re-enforce any kind of carrier Have her consider what I call a toybox. Take a look at a Grand Design Solitude 374TH. Inside of a normal 5th, while taking your motorcycle with you. If we could afford one, we would get it.
