RE: Towing with 2017 Nissan Titan Platinum Reserve

Considering the abysmal starting payload I’d be very careful. Check the yellow sticker on the door jamb for the vehicle specific payload. Subtract about 740# for the tongue weight, a little under 100# for the WDH and see if you have enough payload left for you, your family, and anything you want to put in the truck.

RE: Towing with 2017 Nissan Titan Platinum Reserve

At a max payload (before options) of just over 1300#, you’ll probably run out of payload.

RE: TT brakes ? for mechanical types.....

Are you sure you need brakes? The shoes on trailers don’t have nearly the meat a vehicle does.

RE: Trading down for a smaller unit...???

I agree with BillyBob Jim. You’ll be throwing a lot of Money at this just to be able to trade down.

RE: This new Wrangler can actually tow a trailer

It can tow a trailer, but not much of one. That max towing of >7000# is with a max payload of just over 1500#. Throw in a few options, it’ll drop pretty quickly.

RE: Should I have control arms replaced?

Can the frame itself rust enough to be a hazard? Absolutely! Google Toyota frame rot. It’s eye opening! I had a control arm break due to rust on a Nissan PU. Not real expensive to replace.

RE: help me decide! Jayco or Starcraft

Starcraft is a subsidiary of Jayco. I believe it also has a 2 year warranty.

RE: New Tires For A Brand New Trailer

New....run for a couple of seasons Used.....check the mfg date on sidewall if tires ---4 digit number week/year Usually on sidewall that is on inside of trailer so you will have to crawl underneath to see it If older then 4 yrs ....NEW tires I know it is wrong to assume things but when buying a brand new travel trailer I would expect the tires to be fairly new as well in terms of the manufacturer date and proper rating. Am I foolish to expect this much or ? Actually, the tires could be a bit older than the trailer. The frame probably doesn’t change for years, and somewhere they may be pulling from an old stock of tires. I’d check them, but if not too old, use them until they’re about 3 years old.

RE: Pennsylvania Inspection Sticker Location

We bought two trailers in PA and they came with state inspections from the dealer. One sticker was on the back window and one on the drivers front. No consistency except they were on windows.

RE: FINALLY 1st trip in 192RBS

Must have been some slope if the front wheels were 12” above the back! When you buy a vent cover, get a dark colored one. I have the white on mine and, while I usually get up early, it gets bright in that trailer! Glad you like the 192RBS. We love ours!

RE: Washington DC

The Metro is incredibly easy to use to get to any of the DC area attractions.

RE: Near New York City and/or train lines

The Newburgh KOA is about an hour from midtown Manhattan. An hour radius will provide a lot of campgrounds!

RE: Can I Get Away With a Quick Brake Job in a Campground?

Did y’all miss his third post where he said the brake fluid is all gone??? He needs more than a 30minute pad replacement.

RE: Can I Get Away With a Quick Brake Job in a Campground?

Doesn’t want to bring it to a shop, feels mechanics that don’t want to use a floor jack are “lazy”, doesn’t want to do the job in a Walmart parking lot, doesn’t stay at campgrounds. What do you want the mechanic to do, come to the someplace to fix your brakes? Are you joking? Brake fluid gone, parking brake (btw, is NO substitute for brakes) doesn’t work. Dude, you need more than just replacement pads! You’re a mess who needs to be removed from the road until the truck works correctly. And the best part of all? I’ll be in New Jersey tomorrow. Maybe I’ll crash into you. LOL Now THERES the voice of someone we’d like to see on the road!

RE: Love them KOA's

I guess if you don't have an RV and show up to use a private campground's property and lake frontage, it would be considered trespass? But simply explaining that to most folks should have them leaving with perhaps an apology - so I suspect there was more "conversation" involved ;-) There is always more to the story. It would be interesting to know what led up to this.
