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?

What about using a footlocker lined with padding.

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.
