RE: Dinghy Towing

You better check your owners manual to see if that car can be towed four wheels down. It was my thought that anything newer than a 2014 Honda could not be towed because of the CVT transmission. You may have a standard but you didn't say. I pulled a 2000 Honda Accord behind a Bounder all over the Rocky Mountains back in 2002 without towed brakes or a Break-a-way system. I probably was fortunate to not have any problems. If I were doing it now, I would have some kind of braking system at least on the car. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: Class A Tire Recommendation

Over the past 20 years I have run Toyo and Sumitoma and have been happy with both of them. I shopped around for best price but have never used Hankook although I have heard good things about them. Just put on 6 new Sunitomas for $1860.00 out the door so I believe, if you shop around, you can find a better deal on tires. As far as the tie rods and other front end work, I would recommend another shop for evaluation. Back in the day I drove a 1999 Bounder 68,000 miles without any front end work. Just sayin. Best to you in your quest. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: TIRES 22,5

I have run Toyo and Sumitoma. Have been happy with the ride from both and they are reasonably priced. Just put on 6 Sumitomas for $1860.00 out the door. Have run them about 3000 miles and am very happy with how they ride. As was already mentioned, tires usually age out before they wear out unless you travel an awfully lot. Good luck on your quest. Happy travels. Arnold

RE: flat towing a toad

Because of the change in transmission, the last model year a Honda can be towed is a 2014. 2015 and any newer Honda cannot be safely towed. Over the past 20 years we have towed a 2000 Honda Accord, a 2001 Honda Odyssey and (2) 2014 Honda CRVs. I hope you find something that works as well for you. Happy travels

RE: Ford V10

Back in the day I had a 1999 35 ft Bounder that I pulled a 2000 Honda Accord with. Tripped all over the Rockies and never doubted the ability of the coach to get to the top. Yes the V10 likes the RPM going up and she screams like a scalded dog, but she always hauled it to the top. I was never in a hurry and flashers on if down to 40 and enjoy the scenery. That engine is rock solid and can stand the RPM if you can stand the noise. Just a thought. Safe journey. Arnold

RE: Newer Coach

Ivylog, Thanks for the reply. It's in the price range I could afford.

Newer Coach

Looking to upgrade to a newer Safari Zanzibar which has a washer/dryer and fiberglass roof. Anyone out there have info on that particular brand of coach? Thanks
