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 Thanks Y-Guy.. Yeah, I'm reading the frames on the Aliner's were weak and many bent, and that's a understatement.. I'm wondering if the Cabin A toy haulers had any of those frame issues.. Its to bad, because the Cabin A is only 7' wide and Ive been looking for that..

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

Morning folks. I hope you're all doing well and staying warm.. I found a toyhauler for sale Ive never heard of. It's a Aliner 24SUT, but it says "Cabin A' on the outside.. Has anyone heard of or seen a Aliner Cabin A 24SUT? It looks like a company called Columbia Northwest builds them and the Aliner.. Anyway.. I'm trying to figure out what construction methods they used on the Cabin A 24SUT, and if it was a good unit.. Anyone? Thanks! https://i.servimg.com/u/f59/14/97/22/52/3514c10.jpg

RE: Used Aluminum and Azdel toyhaulers.

I just learned "Rockwood uses all aluminum skeleton work, but will stuff the skeleton with wood where heavy bolts are used (such as floor to sidewall lag bolts) to avoid crushing the studs with their high powered air tools.." That's almost as stupid as luan over aluminum studs imo. KZ These companies cut important corners, but can still claim the trailer is built from aluminum.. Shame on these manufactures touting aluminum construction when a block of wood holds the two half's together. Or they still use luan over aluminum like KZ..

RE: Used Aluminum and Azdel toyhaulers.

I'll second the fiberglass exterior as long as it was adhered to Azdel. I haven't seen a wood backed fiberglass RV that doesn't have delamination! Azdel sounds like great material for the exterior, but I'd give the nod to a aluminum or even steel cargo trailer if I could choose. Here's a list of the manufacturers who use Azdel in their travel trailers. Forest River(Flagstaff,Rockwood,R-Pod) Coachmen ( Chaparral, Brookstone) Lance Campers Nexus RV Prime Time Adrenaline Koala Winnebago Apex RV Gulfstream Heartland RV No Bo (No Boundaries) Renegade RV Work and Play RV nuCamp Surveyor

Used Aluminum and Azdel toyhaulers.

Hello everyone. Come the time of year I spend time looking for a aluminum TH to replace my featherlite. I sold the 24' featherlite TH because it was to big to escape the camp grounds and been there done that, but I have yet to find the 7x16-18' narrow track cargo I want to convert and haven't ordered custom (Jensen Trailers) yet because I'm cheap, and there's plenty of used units and motivated sellers out there. My TV is a 97 cummins 2500 and I'm OK with a big toyhauler for now. Preferably a goose neck. I had so many water leaks in my featherlite, thank god it was built mostly out of aluminum! So my motto is, "it's not if they leak, but when" so aluminum construction is a must, but there are other manufactures who make aluminum toy haulers I should consider. Can I ask the group to help me with my search words? Featherlite Sundowner ATC Livin'lite I'm not very familiar with aluminum TH's with fiberglass exteriors. I would be OK with a fiberglass exterior as long as it was adhered to Azdel and all studs joists and truss's were aluminum and no wooden bottom plates like Ive seen.. I think the NO-BO 19.1 is aluminum TH with azdel, but I'm not sure.. Anyone? Thanks!

RE: Short list of narrow track TT and TH's.

You’re hard to satisfy methinks. What would you replace the luan with? 1/2” plywood? There’s a balance between quality, weight and functionality. There are trailers out there that fit your wants unless you refuse to recognize them. Had I read that KZ used azdel under their fiberglass, I would have kept reading because the rest of the TH is built with water resistant materials. What a way to spoil the party KZ.. And I'm not very motivated as I've already camped my little heart out years ago and I could take it or leave it. I go through this once in a while Grit dog so cut me some slack. Or rather, hope someone is making a small toyhauler to my standards that I may have missed.

RE: Short list of narrow track TT and TH's.

I found a narrow KZ mini toyhauler. I was liking what I was reading even though it looks cheap until I read the word luan..

RE: Short list of narrow track TT and TH's.

You’re still searching for unobtanium? Thought you were buying a narrow cargo trailer and converting it? Yep, pretty much. But a narrow track cargo TH might be more elusive than a narrow TT. When I learned the new no-bo TH is only 7.5' wide, I thought maybe manufactures might have realized some folks want a narrower package, but maybe that's just wishful thinking.

Short list of narrow track TT and TH's.

Hello everyone. I used to own a 24'x 8.5' TH and sold it because it was to long and mainly wide to escape the camp grounds. I shouldn't have sold it so quickly, because I have not found a replacement yet. But I didn't realize finding a narrower TT or TH would be practically impossible. Shorter isn't the problem, it's the width. A jayco 16XRB is 7' wide, but I'm not looking for a hybrid because Ive read the doors can have de-lamination blistering issues. Ive also read "Eddie" made 7' wide TT's.. What other TT and TH's are narrow enough not to need towing mirrors or are less than 7.5' wide? Thanks!

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

LISTEN to our 3-min camping story. Haven't all of these things happened to us at some point? Love it!

RE: Balboa gooseneck

Never seen one before. looks more like a horse trailer converted to a toy hauler, if that's the case might be wary as who knows capacity, etc. and very few windows. But if that works for you then so be it. Did you look at NADA guide? Pretty spartan. Thanks nayther. My featherlite TH was basically a enclosed trailer, so that's why I'm interested because I'm not buying a wood luan/paper thin fiberglass run of the mill TH. Something about stapled mdf that turns my stomach. So there is the Mirage Balboa and there is an older Baloba RV. I'm not sure which one this hails from. A quick price check of the Balboa RV, the base NADA comes in around $11k. With NADA you add options but you need to know what was really an option and what was included. Usually generators and A/C are included in the base price. So my first look is they are asking way to much but you'll need to dig deeper to determine more info. The Mirage Balboa has some mixed reviews in the Snowmobile groups, so do hit up google if you determine that it's a Mirage. It's very possible that it is a Mirage or that Mirage bought the Balboa company, I just don't know the history of those two RV companies enough to help out more. Thanks for looking up the value Y-Guy and it doesn't surprise me its over priced as a dealer has it. And I found quite a few negative reviews, so combined with the price, I guess I'm out.. The search goes on and I regret selling the featherlite

Balboa gooseneck

Hey everyone. I'm thinking about giving up the search for a narrow track enclosed trailer to convert and found a Balboa toyhauler. It looks like a enclosed trailer already converted into toyhauler.. Whats it worth? https://martinsburg.craigslist.org/rvs/d/ranson-2011-balboa-32ft-toyhauler/6883936858.html
