RE: Dog Attack

My dog has tried to bite me when he got excited. He's a small dog. I can control him. It is very hard to control a dog that is more powerful than you are.

RE: Dog Attack

Everyone should control their dogs. But the damage done by a large dog can be bad or deadly. Last month a old lady was in her back yard with her Pit Bull. It bite her in the neck and killed.

RE: Dog Attack

Then reread the post. Are you blinded by your love of dogs? Read it quite clearly and understood it quite well. Nope, bashing pit bulls is no different than bashing KOA campgrounds. Some are bad, some are good, some are in-between. Does nothing but fuel flames of an unneeded fire. On a different tangent, why are dogs at an Apple Festival to begin with? This is the better question to address. One bad dog can ruin it for the rest. I'm often at events that allow dogs. Mine are generally not with me at such gatherings as I'd rather not have the responsibility. I've seen dogs that shouldn't be there a few times but the overwhelming majority of the time there have been no issues. I agree that almost always it's the stupidity of the owner that's at fault. I am not just a dog lover but a dog person. However, I sometimes question the fairness of having dogs at these events to those who dislike, are allergic to or are afraid of dogs. I don't subscribe to the mantra "if my dog can't go then I won't go". Expecting everyone to adore and be comfortable with your dog is selfish and disrespectful. I wasn't bashing Pit bulls.That was my description of the dog. My sister has a sweet dog it is a Pit Bull. My point was the dog was to strong for it's owner.

Dog Attack

We were camping in a area in our Casita & found an Apple Festival was going on. We grabbed out little dog and we were on our way. It was at an apple farm. It was crowded and folks had there dogs with them on a lease. As we were leaving I noticed a man sitting on a loading dock,with 2 Pitbull looking dogs. My wife told me to stop & we need to go another way. A couple walked by us with a black & white collie past the 2 large dogs. The one large dog alerted and the owner put his arm around both dogs necks. The larger dog backed away & the owner tried to stop him but the dog was to powerful. It pulled out of it's harness and attacked the collie in a matter of seconds. It was horrible. The leg & shoulder was injured on the Collie by the time the big dog was pulled away. Some one got a towel & wrapped the dog up & the owner got on her phone to find a emergency vet in the area. What if this had been a child? If your dog is to big to control, leave it at home.

RE: Trailer dolly: trailervalet, parkit360, etc

Update - got my trailer valet and its not going to be a viable option. My trailer is to heavy; but within specs. I like to think I am in reasonable shape but it was hard, hard work. Turning wasn't easy at all, it really bogged down. Also - the fit and finish wasn't great. The handle stops all came out, the xl mounting bracket did not fit; I couldn't get the holes to line up because they were misaligned when drilled out. The brake did work and could hold the trailer on flat ground. I only used it on flat ground. Just my experience, it might be great on a lighter trailer. Watch on YouTube "Front Trailer Hitch". I had one installed for $340 total price. Works great.

RE: Trailer dolly: trailervalet, parkit360, etc

I went with Parkit360. Have received it and assembled but not tried it yet (my new driveway was just poured today) The Parkit and other do poorly on grass. Cement is ok.

RE: Wood or Aluminum Frame?

Research Fiberglass Trailers. They last forever & hold there value. Look at the ones built in the USA and Canada. This was stated on one of my post: Charlie Young Jack Gilliam Correct - I sold my fiberglass Casita after 5 years to upsize to a fiberglass Escape. The Casita sold for what I paid for it - and it sold in less than 48 hours after l posted the listing. Look at direct from the factory. They build for you so you have a better quality. Lazy Daze out of CA. build Class C. Taylor Coaches out of Canada build Trailers. https://taylorcoach.com/

Doing you research on Trailers?

If you haven't bought a trailer yet? Don't forget to look at Fiberglass Trailers. There are Casita, Big Foot, Escape, Oliver & others in the USA and Canada. The comment below is from a discussing the quality & resale value of the Fiberglass Trailers.

RE: Havent camped in 2 years

I really hurt my back 2 years ago.I have been going to physical therapy and seeing a Chiropractor. I was forced into early retirement also. I have some real anxiety going on about the setup and towing my TT to the campsite. I hope when I get on the road next week these feelings will subside. My future plan is to sell the TT and buy a class C I think that would be a easier setup for me. I camp mostly by myself with my dog. Thanks maybe I will see you out there, Doug. Research ordering a RV directly from a Factory. The quality is very good & they can help you build something that may help you. Look in the US & Canada. Research the smaller Fiberglass Trailers. Oliver, Casita, Bigfoot, Etc. They hold there value, light weight, resale very fast, and built very well. Also there is http://www.lazydaze.com/ they will build you one & they have been in business 50 years and are well built. In Canada there is https://taylorcoach.com/ I think all Canada Rv's are 4 season. Wish you the best.

RE: First TT advice

Look at the Fiberglass Trailers in the USA and Canada. Look at having a Trailer made for you directly from the factory. The quality is a lot better. Look at Lazy Dazy out of CA. They build Class C's for 50 years. Out of Canada Taylor Coach will build you one. They are 4 season I think. The fiberglass one have very good build quality and fast resale value. Big Foot Fiberglass makes a small 5th wheel for example. It is just my wife & I & one dog. Also Look at Casita, Oliver, & One's in Canada. You will not have to worry about leaks in a fiberglass Trailer. They last forever & they hold their value. They tow very easy & people will come up to you & want to see inside. Happens every trip we go on. There is a wait of several months on these. That's how popular they are. Mine was 2 month wait for the Casita. This article just came out. https://www.curbed.com/2019/9/18/20870828/rv-camper-repairs-poor-quality?fbclid=IwAR0b5jdOe8Tgu7Bpyb3trnIBPOqSsGOcXPZg4Vuv3YaDd0JZqxnZC8zIO9Q

RE: FIBERGLASS campers ??

When we looked at RV's we looked a class A, B & C & Trailers. We were worried about spending money & having poor quality & problems. So we accidentally found Fiberglass Trailers. They are ordered directly from the factory. The build quality is very good & they hold there value. Canada has several Fiberglass & regular Trailers that you can order from the factory. Taylor Coach for example. We ended up for us it is just 2 retired people and a dog the Casita Fiberglass Trailer. It tows very easy. Weight is 2800 pounds. Look at Oliver, Scamp, Big Foot ( They have a fiberglass 5th wheel. ) and others. Good luck when I was looking, I went to the Casita factory in TX and rather liked their bathroom layout compared to the scamp. to get a full height coat closet you needed to get the roof AC unit, not the lower one that was located at the bottom of the closet area. had a small table on the side with two swivel chairs and you could leave the dinette made up as a bed full time if desired. bumpy We love ours. We park our in our back yard because of our HOA. I put on a front trailer hitch. Works great. What did you end up getting? We did not look at the Scamp because of the driving distance for us. I think they all are nice now days.

RE: Looking for quality

Try the Outdoors RV "Back Country series". Sister company to Northwood. https://www.facebook.com/groups/RVHorrorStories/

RE: Looking for quality

Try the Outdoors RV "Back Country series". Sister company to Northwood. The list has shortened. After some shopping today we've tentatively decided it will likely be an Outdoors Back Country or an Arctic Fox (in that order of preference). A good friend who's been in the RV industry as a Service Manager for almost 20 years shared his thoughts with us as well. Seems as though he believes they're almost all ****, just some less crappier than others ;). An earthquake on wheels. He suggested to add a Flagstaff to our list to at least check out in person before eliminating it from contention. He felt like next to Tiffin in the Class A world, no manufacturer stands behind their products any better when it comes to warranty work. He likes the Nash built products, just not how they treat their dealership network. https://www.curbed.com/2019/9/18/20870828/rv-camper-repairs-poor-quality?fbclid=IwAR2OXQ6S6OQGiMYgAsJUWJLzpOPM2yI-x2C751tQUulUvqG7HY1pFGkTHvA

RE: Trailer dolly: trailervalet, parkit360, etc

I installed a front Hitch on my truck. Works great! No problems now. The Parkit360 did not do well on grass or the other mover I had bought. Cost to install was $340. Sure beats spending $2000. You can do it yourself, but I don't do that anymore.

RE: Looking for quality

Look at Fiberglass Trailers, Casita, Oliver, Bigfoot. Also Taylor Coach out of Canada. They custom build your trailer for you. Great price because of the Dollar vs Canadian Dollar. I think all units built in Canada are 4 season. https://taylorcoach.com/

RE: Front Trailer Hitch to move camper

Used the front hitch this week for the first time. Worked like a charm. The wife guided me through the gate into the backyard. She was amazed how well it went. It was easy to make adjustments. Thanks for everyone's advise.

RE: Front Trailer Hitch to move camper

Thanks everyone. I am having one installed next week. A lot of good information. Reversing the drop hitch is a good idea.
