RE: traveling to Maine

As to "parkways", I always assume trailers are not allowed, unless I know specifically otherwise. You are correct if a road is called a parkway do not travel it, not because of the hefty ticket you will receive but some parkways have low clearance for the overpasses.

RE: Tow Vehicle for Large Family

I tow with a 04 Excursion V-10. I have 373 gears, but I believe there was an option for a different gear ratio that would push the tow limit to 11,000lbs. I suggest looking real hard at the gas excursions, they will be cheaper to buy and you will not need to bullet proof them.

RE: Do we need to remove the TV for winter storage?

I have not removed my flat screen TV since from my TT I bought it in 2010 and it has been working just fine.

RE: WD bar storage ideas or mods?

In my front pass through storage I placed some hooks that I simply slide my wd bars onto and leave them there until I need to hitch up again, this way they can be secured as well as kept out of the weather and off the ground.

RE: Excursion as tow vehicle?

My 2004 V10 Ex has taken us from Florida to Maine without issue. I did add a rear sway bar that was beefier than the factory one. My TT weighs around 9200lbs when loaded to camp. I do have E rated tires and installed new shocks when I bought it in 2009. I opted for the Roadmaster Active Suspansion to shore up the Ex's soft rear instead of airbags. I mainly use the Ex to tow and average 7.5 - 8 MPG. I would go with 1200lb - 1400lb bars.

RE: scuba gear?

RE: TT with Bathroom outside access, quadbunk, no outdoor Kit.

I have a 2010 Jayco 32BHDS. The outside kitchen was not available in 2009 when I ordered the TT. The bunk house has 2 upper bunks and 2 Jay Cubes to sleep 4.It also has an exterior door to the bathroom.

RE: Not a big enough trailer

Please don't hesitate to throw in other possibilities. Except for pitch a tent. They aren't tent kinda kids, and I'm not a tent kinda mom. LolOh well. I tend to camp at private CG's and most will not allow a tent to be set up on the same site as our TT so we we bought a BH when we were able to upgrade our TT. I do think you will be able to customize your TT to best fit your needs, keep in mind the possibility of resale value.

RE: Condensation around Jayco TT bath vent

I believe the Op is talking about the AC ceiling mounted vent. I too have noticed the same thing. I keep the interior bathroom door open and partially close the AC vent to keep the condensation to a minimun.

RE: Some advice on selling...

I like the title to include the year amd model number. In the description include as much information about the layout and any extras. Good quality photos are important.

RE: Time for a new one opinions on our choice

My first TT was used it was a Coachman, my second TT was used it was a Jayco. Both were great, we just outgrew them. When it came time to bu our current TT we shopped all manufacturers until we found the floorplan we loved and a price we could afford. Turns out it was a Jayco. Jayco has a 2 year warranty and seemed more fairly priced than others we looked at. When we buy our next TT we will look at Jaycos first.

RE: Has anyone purchased from RV One?

I shopped and bought from RVDirect in 2010 and will do it again. I saved thousands and the only warranty claim in the first 2 years was handled by a mobile RV repair shop.

RE: Register of travel trailers

I have had 3 TT's and have registered each one. Now if you are looking to put one on a permanent site then I would not bother registering it.

RE: Will the camper make the trip?

My only issue with towing at night is when you are ready to stop, will the CG be open, check in time is usally around noon, will you be pulling in and setting up in the early morning hours?
