RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

IMO, there are NO mass-produced RV's worthy of a 'gold standard' designation. Everything is pretty much built from relatively low quality components -- enough to get the job done, but nothing ever over-the-top. And of course, we as Americans, are not going to pay the price for an RV that might truly be the gold standard, because there's too much other stuff on the market that, on the surface, looks just fine and will serve our needs until something goes wrong or falls apart due to the materials and workmanship we've settled for --- then we can get on this forum and bellyache about it! :C Happy travels! You won't here me bellyache about my APEX. It has done everything I bought it for, with minimal maint, as did my 2004 Pioneer. I bought them to camp in, to keep me dry, and to follow me around. and they both did it with no protest. OK, There's one vote for the "I'm 100% happy with the quality of what I bought" column . . . . . any others? Here’s another. We are extremely satisfied with our 2015 Dart. I’ve done bunches of mods to fit our style of glamping. We put between 5k and 10k miles per year on it. Very obedient and loyal as it follows us everywhere.

RE: VERY BAD ROOF/ Please help

If you just want to stop the water from coming in, I would look into the companies selling old billboard tarps.

RE: Virginia GCWR rules / commercial / travel trailer

Just great. Advice to lie and commit fraud to save a hundred bucks. What else would you do to save a few bucks?

RE: Mattress Recommendations

We now have an 8” Serenia Sleep under the 3” Serra topper. Both of us love it.

RE: Still very tempting to buy my totaled TT back

Since everything is working and you can live with the crack, there’s no reason not to buy it back. As far as potential leaks, just do normal roof and seam maintenance. Personally, I would think that there is nothing wrong with the frame since the doors work and the glass wasn’t broken.

RE: Still very tempting to buy my totaled TT back

Wow. So much wild guessing going on. Or maybe all these naysayers have secretly gone and looked at it. First, I would take it on a short trip to see how it rides. You can paint stripes on the tires to see if is way out of alignment or have it checked by a trailer shop. If most everything works, then go for it and go camping. As said, there are a lot of campers out there that look worse that manage to get on the road.

RE: The Bowlus is Back

Regardless of price, the Bowlus is still pretty cool.

RE: Getting started with sway control

If your trailer is 6000 pounds or so gross weight, you ought to look at an Andersen hitch. Weight distribution, anti sway, and easy hook up all in one.

RE: Axle upgrade questions

Without tire, axle, trailer weight specs, every reply will be a useless guess.

RE: nautilus retractable shower door question

Friends of ours have one in their Class C and love it. Sounds like a defective one or bad installation.

RE: Triple bunk Travel trailer under 36'

That trailer will have a tongue weight approaching 1000 pounds when loaded. Take that from your payload sticker and see what you’ve got left.

RE: Break Away Cable

(P.S. when I say cable by that I mean I am looking to replace both the cable and the plastic key thing that it is permanently attached to.) The Keys are usually not interchangeable ....just buy a new Break Away Switch with Coiled cable Simple...... When I go to replace the old switch will the brakes be applied when I un-wire the old one ? Should I unhook the battery first ? I replaced mine without unhooking the battery. Just make sure not to touch bare wires together.

RE: Lubricant for stabilizers

I used a dry graphite spray... it lessens the dirt and debris being attracted to it Yep.

RE: Want your opinion

I’d spend my money on repairs and upgrades. Since you really like the floor plan, why go through the trouble of recreating it? Biggest concern I can see is getting quality work if you are not going to do it yourself.
