RE: Has anyone heard of "Cabin A' TH by Columbia Northwest?

I can't say I've heard or seen those, appears they have been discontinued. Found one page that did talk about some quality issues, here and this post on RV.net

RE: insulation on a 28 ft all aluminum

I'd suggest trying to contact member hvac he has an ATC and did a lot of research, also lives in Michigan so might have a good take on that brand and insulation.

RE: is there a blue book" for toy hauler brands

First off I'm assuming you are taking used. The problem with NADA is it estimates based on sales, so it can vary wildly. But gives you some idea. Though many times private sellers don't care about what you've found, they are selling it based on what they owe. Going to www.pplmotorhomes.com is a good source for any RV they are a large volume dealer, a lot of consignments and trade-in's that tend to move fast. Spending sometime shopping on the various RV sites will give you an idea of what things are going or and what's not moving fast.

Mick, have you looked at the new Wranglers as a possible option?

RE: Anyone using a 2006 sequoia as a toad?

Four Down Towing Notes For those casually looking at what they could tow four down the Motorhome Magazine Dinghy Towing Guides is a great place to start. It provide a great overview, but doesn’t get into many details. For those that know more details; make, model, transmission, engine, etc. Then the REMOCO Towing Store is a great resource. It will tell you more details about towing; if you can, limitations, if you can’t or if a Lube Pump might solve the limitation. But the ultimate authority is the actual Owners Manual that came with the vehicle. In most cases you can do a Google Search with the year make and model to find one online. There are users that find out that they can tow four down just fine, going against what the manufacture states. If you go this route you’re on your own if there are any damages, this is why many won’t risk violating the warranty by towing against the owners manual recommendation. Even vehicles that could be towed one year might not be recommended the next year, either changes to electronics, transmission, engine or the bean counters can all influence the change.

RE: Towing 4Runner

Anyone flat towing a Toyota 4Runner 4WD? I'm looking at picking up an old 4Runner (06 or so) or a Lexus GX470. I know I can flat tow the 470 and I suspect the 4Runner is no different. Anyone towing a 4Runner 4 down? Thanks. (Note: I know the owners manual says no) jor If you want to do this, check out Remco Towing you input the information and it will give you options, such as a Lube Pump, from Remco. Without a Lube Pump you will probably trash your transmission. But it will set you back around $2,000 too. Good luck.

RE: What do I need to know - smart car- toy hauler

One of the challenges you will face is most of the "Smart" cars have low ground clearance. So the ramp angle is a problem for some, many street motorcycles have the same challenge. What happens is as your front end goes up the ramp the rear end drags on the ground. You can add extra ramps to lessen the approach angle. As already shared weight limits of some ramps and the garage are other factors.

RE: Weekend Warrior Red LED Side Marker replacement?

Thank you! that works really nicely. Happy it worked! careful, my security program blocked that site immediately, there's something there it doesn't like. It's pretty simple and uses IMGUR, but it is not a 'secure' page since it really doesn't need to be, so my guess is that's why. It was put together by one of the Mods here, 1492.

RE: Class A and Taco Bell Drive Thru

Going in the wrong way also. Was alcohol involved? Yes, the driver was taken in and booked on DUI charges. Intoxicated RV driver takes wrong turn for a late night snack in Kennewick

RE: Washington State

So much to see and do. For Mountain camping I would suggest Lake Wenatchee area. San Juan Island is great, but ferry costs can scorch your budget fast. Grand Coulee Dam great, specifically Steamboat Rock State Park is very nice, but this area can get very hot in the summer and it's a lot more fun with a boat. I would also second Fort Stevens in Oregon, large campground near the mouth of the Columbia. Any campground in Oregon & Washington you want to start reserving asap.

RE: 2nd to Wrangler what are the best toad options?

You might be looking for a Unicorn. Oddly enough a search of the archives for 'Subaru 2014" returns no results. :(

RE: 2nd to Wrangler what are the best toad options?

According to the Motorhome Magazine towables chart the 2014 (just the age I thought I might want to purchase) is towable with no restrictions (manual transmission only). So you've done step one, now hop online and google the owners manual for that same car, often manufacturers have them online. Verify that, but final step is the actual manual that shipped with the vehicle.

RE: 2nd to Wrangler what are the best toad options?

Anybody towing a manual Subaru (Outback, Legacy, Impreza, Voloster, etc? If so, do you have to do anything other than put it in neutral? I don't think many Subaru's are flat towable, you can take a look at the Dinghy Guides you can also check the Remco Towing Store as a quick reference, but you need to always verify with the owners manual.
