RE: Some ATV rules Help

Seems like out west in the desert states if it's fun it's not allowed. :)

RE: Anyone own a Carson Toy Hauler

Something I never looked at and ran across in my internet travels today is the Grand Design RV Momentum G-Class 21G Travel Trailer Toy Hauler. Pretty nice layout for a 21 FT TH. Looks like this model came out in 2019. I don't need all the bling and not sure on the axels, 16" wheels and 7000 lb would be better. GD Momentum G-Class 21G

RE: Anyone own a Carson Toy Hauler

Thanks JDC Yes the Carson is sparse and entry levelish for sure but they seem to hold up well out west anyway. Don't see any here in the south and very few used out in the internet. I'm looking to not dump $50K into a TH and instead use some of that money for toys for this initial jump back into RV'ing. I have internet looked at everything from ATC, Sundowner and Dune sport down to the Carson line. I keep the package at the lower lenght end I think my needs can be filled with a 20-22 Ft bumper pull TH. I want to keep my foot print on the lower side to be able to get into camp sites that have smller sites like federal and state parks. Will also do some desert campimg. I can see myself doing 2-3 30 day trips a year and some local lake weekend camping and 1-2 weeks stuff. My toys will consist of 1) KTM 350 EXC-F Enduro bike and 2) Honda Fourtrax Rincon or Can-Am Maverick 2-Seat. I'm leaning towards to KTM/Honda combo. My all in budget is $50K so it should allow me some bandwith to put this all together. Whatever direction I head in the TH will be used and the toys new unless I run across a smoking hot deal on the toys used.. Dennis

Anyone own a Carson Toy Hauler

Anyone own a Carson Toy Hauler? I have been researching the 202 and 222 everything from used to new. Had a few dune buggy guys from out west recommend this brand. Ran across an old For Sale listing from 2012 on a very clean 2005 Carson FC202 (Fun Runner) that had a 4 seat SXS in the back. Total length ball to tail is 25' which is the perfect size toy hauler I'm looking for. Thanks Dennis

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

I would not touch that trailer with anything less than a 3/4 ton diesel truck, personnly I would buy a 1 ton DRW diesel truck and be one and done but thats just me.

RE: tow vehicle advice

Personally I would not put a 15k bumper pull trailer behind single wheel 3/4 ton truck. I would look for at least a 3500 DRW truck and buy a Hensley Hitch. https://hensleymfg.com/

RE: It's time for a replacement truck

Disclaimer: I'm not a RAM fan and never have been. If I was dragging 14K arounf the country it would only be behind a 3500 DRW truck at a miniumn. I would even look at the 4500, 5500, 6500 HD Chevy trucks. I have a 2019 Chevy 3500HD DRW 4X4 D/Max High Country that is one nice ride with more power than I will ever need. Havn't done much towing yet but I know it will get the job done when I start doing that. Unloaded I get 14 around town and 18 highway.

RE: NEW T.V. RECCOMENDATION?

1) tow capacity around 6K. 2) Seating for six or more. 3) daily driver 4) Good fuel economy Yea they don't make one of those. Your best bet is a Suburban.

RE: Interesting times to be shopping for my new truck camper

When there is blood in the streets it's time to take a walk. Going to be a buyers market in the coming months and cash will be king. I'm looking.

RE: GM/Chevy 2020 fitment odyssey

I'm pretty much in the same boat so to speak. I have a 2019 Chevy High Country 3500HD 4X4 DRW D/Max. I want a older Lance 992 with a price point under $20K Will it fit my 2019 truck bed? I asked Lance and they never replyed back. Any work around on the Sat Radio not working with a TC? I have been all over the map on a TC & enclosed trailer for toys vice GN Toy Hauler. The TC + Trailer comes in at $25-30K while the GN Toy Hauler pushes $50-60K for custom order. I really don't want to drag 35 ft. of **** behind me. TC and 16 ft enclosed trailer would serve me well.

RE: When does a TH become too big??

The axels are further back than a traditional camper where the axels are more centered. So the 34-35 your looking at is probably gonna back like a 38-40ft traditiona 5th wheel. My 42' was rediculous...which is why it went bye bye. Interesting, never gave much thought to backing and position of wheels on the trailer. Back several years ago I had a 18 ft car hauler that I could back up with not problem and put it wherever I wanted to. Borrowed a friends enclosed 10 ft trailer one day and was all over the place trying to back that thing up, I was going WTF.

RE: When does a TH become too big??

Garage size requirements; Can Am X3 (2 seat) - 11 Ft or Honda Rincon - 7 Ft Plus a KTM 690 Enduro bike For those of you who own and use your TH can that fit with misc. equip in a 14' garage???? I'm guessing I also need cabinets of some sort in the garage area.

RE: When does a TH become too big??

This Sundowner is along the lines of what I had in mind, although a little plain jane entry levelish. It could use a few added options but overall about the right size. Sundowner 1786GM 34'

RE: When does a TH become too big??

So I had to re-read your post to see your looking to see if size is a problem in sites. We have a 34' bumper pull and a Ram 3500 crew cab long bed so we are about 58' overall. So a 34' bumper puts you about 38' ball to tail. I'm looking at a gooseneck TH in the 22-24' floor length plus 8' for forward bed or total nose to tail of about 32'. That puts me about 30' pin to tail on a 2019 Chevy 3500 HD D/Max Dulley which I think would be just the right size to get in and out of most if not all camp sites I would be going to.

RE: When does a TH become too big??

Look at Ocala Trailers. Call Mike and talk to him. The one in my signature is gone. Sold and bought a Class A diesel. They are built tuff. However at 42ft with 30ft from pin to center of axels it was down right awnry to manipulate in a campground. 30-35ft would have been ok. Ok so you did buy a Sundowner, I guess I missed that over the last few months on iRV2. So did you feel the build quality was worth the price? To get what I want I'm guessing a special order if I stay set on a Sundowner. I will reach out to Mike at Ocala as I have looked at their website a few times.

RE: When does a TH become too big??

Double stacked frame rails under torsion axles to get height is common. They may offer that as an option just like trailer manufacturers offer additional internal height and longer ramps during the build. Maybe, the Sundowner website is very lacking in details and options, they also are not very pro active at answering emails. Basic stuff like holding tank size, fuel station, Gen Pak, Solar Etc. is nowhere to be found on there website.
