RE: Looking for SUV recommendation

“Jay Flight SLX7 184BS model (dry weight of about 3400lbs).“ Dry weight 3400 plus 1600 pounds of water, batteries, propane, bikes, stuff...5000 pounds Exactly! Dry weight is a myth. To the OP, trailers weigh more than the dry weight when the leave the factory. Look at the GVWR of the trailer. Loaded to camp you will be closer to that number.

RE: Some Towing Math and Questions

Don't guess at the capacity, and don't go by opinions on towing capacity, and only look at Trailer Life as a general guide. Most of what you are looking for is right here: 2017 Ram Towing Charts. I'm sort of puzzled that Ram has a separate towing guide. Not easy to find. GM has it right in the truck's manual. But at least it's available.

RE: Looking for reliable travel trailer

Maybe not good advice in these pandemic days but how about renting a 26 foot class C for a weekend or two to get an idea if the RVing lifestyle is really for you? If your city allows you could even camp in your driveway for a weekend! This is the best idea. Too many people buy a unit and find out it's really not their cup of tea, then lose their shirts on it when they sell it. There are places that you can rent a travel trailer from and they will deliver it to the site you want for the days you want. It works best with private CGs because you can call ahead and make all the arrangements. And some of the private CGs will be able to recommend an RV dealer that rents trailers.

RE: Advice for the best printer cartridge.

For my Canon IX6870 I buy my cartridges from Arthur Imaging. Every bit as good as Canon, excellent color for prints, and a fraction of the price. They sell compatible cartridges for several brands, but not for cheap ink jet printers.

RE: TT to HTT

We're in our 2nd hybrid. First was an '03, and now the 2013. Both purchased new. We've loved them. For us there really have been no downsides. But I also realize that they aren't for everyone. We don't plan on replacing the 2013 for at least another few years, but when we do it will be a hard side trailer. For the sole reason that as we're getting older climbing in and out of the bed is getting a lot harder. Something to consider.

RE: Gatlinberg, TN and Ashville, NC

For Gatlinburg, we stayed Smoky Bear Campground and RV Park. It's about 20 minutes east of Gatlinburg, 10 minutes from a full grocery stores, but it's away from the crowds and hustle and bustle. Very clean and well maintained, and the hosts are really wonderful. https://www.smokybearcampground.com/

RE: RV awning cleaning

I spray the dirty/molded areas with Awesome Orange from the dollar store. Then use a wash pad on a wand and car wash soap to wash it all off. Then rinse with a hose. It comes right off. If we go more than a month between trips I cover the ends with soda bottles (see link). This really works well. It's not fool proof but over the course of a winter the dirt/mold on the awning is minimal and easy to clean. https://www.doityourselfrv.com/make-diy-awning-protectors-rv/

RE: Towing with 4cyl Sorento?

Baby it. This whole setup is marginal at best and I think you are going to be very unhappy with it. Potential braking issues have been mentioned, but I was thinking cooling system. Watch your engine temps and if possible monitor the transmission temps.

RE: Vehicle for Towing

Check the payload. Your tongue weight is going to be in the neighborhood of 900#, add that the weight of the hitch and you're close to or over 1000#. Some SUVs have low payloads. If one you look at is say, 1300# then you might be cutting things close. I always avoided PUs. I loved my Suburbans. But now that I have a crew cab truck, I can't imagine going back to a big SUV.

RE: Ford delays Electric F150 to mid 2022

This doesn't surprise me. It was ambitious for any of the big 3 to promise rapid rollout of electric trucks. Right on the heels of Mary Barra predicting mass electrification of cars will take decades.

RE: Interesting state-by-state reopening guide

Interesting list but missing data for campers. WI State Parks are open, but campgrounds are closed. Private CGs are allowed to be open but some counties have closed them at least until the Stay at Home order ends May 26th.
