RE: Toy Hauler Trip Reports

My bike, a KX500 in a Honda CRF frame performed flawlessly. The wife's YZ250 had reed issues unfortunately. She did get to go on a few rides in friends buggies or side by sides so not all was lost. Gotta give a shout out the the man and his wife that still ride two-strokes these days. Keep it up.

RE: Toy Hauler Trip Reports

Here is my last trip. For President's Day Weekend we took our toy hauler and one of the toys to the Littlefield, AZ and Mesquite, NV area for a four day weekend. It was cold and windy, but a lot better than home would have been that time of year. We enjoyed four days in the RV, and doing some exploring in the AZ, NV, and UT desert.https://i.imgur.com/DNmHEe7l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/03ZCOWpl.jpg

RE: 4 seasons toy haulers under 5000lbs dry weight?

I wouldn't avoid cold weather in "any" toyhauler. Our very first trip out in our Momentum 350G was a weekend stay at an RV park in Beaver, UT, in early January. Night time temps were in the low teens, and daytime temps in the low 30s. We had no problems from the cold weather, or anything else for that matter. We did burn about 5 gallons of propane running the furnace that weekend though. And our 350G is somewhat over the 5000 lb dry weight the OP asked about. https://i.imgur.com/vYeLnDBl.jpg

RE: Rear Deck System Worth It?

Looking at a GD 353g or 395m toy hauler and questioning if the rear deck system is worth the cost along with the sliding 3 season doors. Don't plan much boondocking so concerned about overall length in campsites and having enough space to keep the ramp door/patio open when parked. Considering it shouldn't be kept open during rain I'd probably keep the ramp door closed most of the time also so questioning if the 3 season doors are worth it also. Curious how others use this space and what their thoughts are. In theory I'm sure its a great place to hang but do people really use it, or is it more of a novelty that wears off after time? Space isn't that large either and we're family of 4 (not couples). After reading this post it is apparent that the different RV manufacturers build their deck systems differently. Many of the comments in this thread do not apply to the Grand Design toy haulers you are looking at. Some people have reported that the deck system mounts to the ramp door and it makes opening and closing the door difficult because of the added weight, or because of the deck system sticking against the edges of the door opening, and they had to go inside and push the door open that way, instead of opening it from the outside. I don't know if you have looked at the Grand Design deck system, or opened one at a dealership yet, but it mounts to the door opening, and not the ramp door itself. It is a simple system to use, and only add another 30 seconds or so to the time needed to load a toy in the back of the toy hauler. With its design I can't see how it could get stuck. Anyway, we are happy with the deck system on our Grand design, and are glad the trailer came with it. We don't need to use it every trip to be happy we have it on the trips we do use it. The only negative is that it subtracts about 6" of garage space. That isn't a problem with our 350G, which has plenty of garage space for our UTV. I tried to find a picture of the Grand Design deck system. This is the best I could do. I hope you can see what I am talking about. https://i.imgur.com/NNQF6NZl.jpg

RE: Rear Deck System Worth It?

I just bought a Grand Design Momentum 350G that has a separate 14.5' garage. I thought about ordering the RV from the factory, and would have ordered it without the deck system, because I didn't think I would use it. Our dealer got a Momentum 350G in stock with the exact options I would have ordered one with, but it also had the deck system. I have been looking a long time for this RV, so when he got one in stock I bought it within a week of it arriving at his dealership. After having the chance to use the deck system I must say I really like it. The ramp functions as a deck, with enclosed gates around it, and a rear awning extends the length of the deck to provide shade if you want. I'm glad I have it now. There are obvious limitations to its use. It will work better in spring and fall when temperatures are more moderate. It will work better if there are fewer bugs. And it will work better on days when there isn't a lot of wind and dust.

RE: 5th Wheel hitch suggestions

I'm also looking for a hitch for a short bed Ram 3500, so it needs to be a slider. I want to try to keep it simple if possible, so not interested in air ride hitches. My Momentum Toy Hauler has a GVWR of 16,888 lbs. I've been looking at: Pullrite 18K SuperGlide $2225 Pullrite 24K SuperGlide ? Demco 21K AutoSlide $2200 Curt Q20 Slider $1194 Curt Q24 Slider $1331 Any recommendation on those hitches, or others?

RE: Forest River RV XLR Boost 37TSX13? Any owners on here?

Yes it does require annual inspections, which cost $160 to do each year. But there is no deductible or co-pay that would be need to be met for each claim. The dealership is 50 miles from where I live, so I would plan on a once yearly trip to winterize and inspect the RV late each fall. No big deal really. I actually went to three dealerships today and looked at both bumper pull and fifth wheel Toy Haulers from multiple manufacturers. It seams like each manufacturer builds multiple brands, that range from entry level to high end in features and in quality. The XLR Boost I had asked about is an entry level RV. It is a decent RV, but a number of other RVs I looked at sure do appear to be better quality. Although it will be about $20K more than the XLR Boost, right now it looks like I am going to be getting a Grand Design 350G. It has a 14'6" garage, unloaded weight is 12,950 lbs, GVWR is 16,800, and length is 39'10". We are still working on price because he will have to order one in. And if I order one there are some options I don't need, like the play pen railing that goes around the ramp door. I don't even need the drop down bed or the fold down sofas in the garage, but they might have to be included. There is also one other RV (bumper pull) he is going to be giving me a price on.

Forest River RV XLR Boost 37TSX13? Any owners on here?

I am looking for a toy hauler with an enclosed garage, and a nearby dealer has a Forest River XLR Boost 37TSX13 for a decent price. Does anyone own one, or have an opinion on this RV? I like the floor plan and it is a triple axle with 5000 lb cargo capacity. I am thinking about purchasing it. I know, its a Forest River. But the dealership includes a "forever" warranty for no extra cost. If you were in the market for this size toy hauler, would you buy one?

RE: loosing old members

I've been around for 18 years now, but don't post as much now. The photo posting procedure is terrible. I don't know why this forum cant do it like every other forum on the internet?
