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?

RE: towing capacity HELP!

Keep in mind your TV is rated to pull 8100lbs. Everything you put into the TV will subtract from that 8100lbs. So if your family weighs 300lbs than you can tow 7800lbs. My TT has an actual delivered weight of 8300lbs but the dry weight, as advertised in the brouchure, is less. My actual weight when ready to camp is closer to 9300lbs. Don't buy the TT , you do not have enough truck for it.

RE: Newbie looking for easy to pull trailer 28-30'.

I had a Jayco 27BH, it weighed 4800 empty. With a family of 6 we camped with it for 3 seasons before we upgraded. It did not have a slide out.

RE: Does your level change as slide goes out??

I always leave the non slide side a little higher so when I open both slides the TT is closer to level, then after I have set up all the hook ups I deploy the stabilizer jacks, this way the tires have had a chance to cool down.

RE: NY and inspection and registration question

I use Len-Rich RV service in Gardiner to inspect my TT. Campers are their business. I just call them up and make an appointment for the inspection.They also offer mobile service, but I have not used their mobile service for an inspection though. I have a few friends that have used Len-Rich. One friend had a Jayco 5th wheel that was rear-ended. When Len-Rich was done with the repair, it was better than new. They are a first class operation. Rich has always been a gentleman to deal with. Since we bought our 1st TT we have been using his shop. I have even had him work on my TV.

RE: What does BHDS stand for?

My Jayco 32BHDS is a bunk house model with 2 slides. Bothe slides are deep. One slide is in the bunk house and one is in the living/kitchen area with the U-shaped dinette in the slide.

RE: NY and inspection and registration question

As others have stated the NY registration is a calendar year on TT's. At $100.00 per year that comes to less than $9.00 per month. If you register it in the month you move it, say April, you will save on the previous months, save $27.00..

RE: Customizing a TT

I use Len-Rich RV service in Gardiner, NY. Rich Michel is the owner and a fellow camper. My TT is in his shop now getting some body work due to a sign that decided to run into my TT while I was making a left turn. You can look them up on the web or call them at (845) 725-7624

RE: can the city water run into the trailer at all times?

I read this post for the first time today and noticed that you have not responded. She hasn't responded to any of her threads. Once I saw her latest post I figured she was just looking for attention and not any real information.

RE: Personal/Standing Lift

My niece used to camp with us, since she was wheelchair bound I had to carry her into the TT whenever she needed to be tended to, while she never complained it was an issue. The fit through the entrance door was tight and I had to ensure she did not bump an arm or leg as we squeezed in. When we started looking for our next TT I inquired about the possibility of a lift being installed and unfortunately the TT wall construction was the issue, it would not be strong enough. I was advised a class A or Toy Hauler would be a better option.

RE: Newbie- picking out first TT

Before you purchase your 1st TT, if you have not done so already, I would take the family to the dealers lot and have the children lay in the beds to ensure they have enough room, I would stand in the shower to ensure you can turn around, I would sit on the toilet to ensure you are not cramped and I would pretnd it was a day where going outside was not an option and see if there really is enough room for you all in the TT.

RE: Leveling Travel Trailer >>>

I level before I pull out the slide. But I do keep in mind that if I am going to have our rig a bit off level left to right, I will make sure the slide side is a bit higher, not lower. Thats exactly what I do . I also complete my setting up before I lower my stabilizer jacks, this way the TT tires have had a chance to cool down.

RE: first post help

I had a 2003 27BH and it weighed 6000lbs ready to camp. So depending on your actual TV set up you may not be within the tow rating of your TV.

RE: How big a trailer can I easily tow

If you are going to tour the USA I suggest the lighter the better. You will use less fuel as well as have less weight to tow up the mountains. If you tow close to youe max you may have trouble climbing the hills as well as over stressyour tow vehicle.

RE: pulling trailers over 35 feet.

I have towed my 36' 6" TT all the way from Disney to Maine and have camped in private CG's. Never had a problem with length nor towing with my V-10 Excursion.

RE: Thinking of buying a TT

Hello I was wondering how expensive it is to own a TT. I'm wondering how much is spent on gas and is it worth it? Do y'all use the TT because yall dont want to use a hotel. Is it more expensive than just getting a hotel. Obviously everyone is different but I'm looking for ballpark number Thanks I have never added up the cost of having a TT. While my mpg's decrease when towing I still feel the added fuel cost is well worth the memories of camping as a family. It is more convient than booking a hotel room, having a kitchen to use, sleeping in your own beds and bringing the dogs along.
