RE: My TT was wrecked by a hail storm.

Sorry to here about you TT. It sucks you spend all that time and money to take care of something and in one quick storm can wipe it out. And even if you had insurance on it they would not have offered you what you probably have in it because of its age. You could most likely get the same amount as the insurance would have paid selling it as a parts camper. Or someone looking for a fixer upper. Just remember the good memories with it.

RE: Roof spots

Shavings from the drill bit going thru the steel frame when installing the the fan maybe? Good call never thought about that.

RE: Roof spots

If you are thinking it is rust from nails/staples underneath, fear not. It isn't. Just wear darker sunglasses next time you go up there and they won't be as noticeable. LOL thanks. That was my fear something to do with the nails/staples. Thanks for the feedback. The problem is I already saw the marks so even with sunglasses the next time I know they are there. LOL

RE: Roof spots

Looks like fertilizer stains. Are you using aircraft for fertilizing your lawn, or pushing the fertilizer cart at high speed? It looks like they did a nice caulk job around that roof vent! I would not worry too much about roof stains, or even keeping it super clean. Jerry No aircraft fertilizing that I know of. Yes I had them install a fantastic fan and they did a great job with caulking. Thanks

Roof spots

https://i.imgur.com/YBGMOpxl.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/YBGMOpxl.jpg I just bought a new coachman Apex 300. We have had it about a month now and I noticed some spots on the roof that look like little rust spots and they do not clean off. Its does not look like typical stain marks from leaves and sticks etc. Is this something I should be concerned about? Thanks

RE: Best Weight Distribution Hitch

I just upgraded my TT and went with a new equalizer. First trip from the dealer and it was not setup correctly. Drove home two hours and was ready to throw the hitch in the garbage. Printed out the installation manual and reinstalled it and it works much better. Still not sure I like it better than my old Reese that was a bar and chain type. And besides having to remove it before backing up I still prefer the separate anti-sway. The chains are just quicker and easier to adjust.

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

As soon as I read "Keystone", I knew it wasn't going be anything but bad. The wife and I just recently spent a week in a really nice state park " Stonewall resort " with full hookups. We were walking the dog around the campground and noted that every RV looked brand new and the place was completely dominated by Keystone and Forrest river units. Sales volume opens the door for more publicity.....good or bad.Keystone and Forest River are the two major players that control most of the market. They either buy the competition or put them out of business. People purchase on price not quality. To bad the OP didn't join the forum before he had a problem. With all the RV sales this summer I bet you'll see a lot of similar post in the future. Record sales will have a even greater push to get them out the door to dealers. I'm sure that will improve the quality You forgot one. Thor is the third big player that buys up RV companies. I used to love the Jayco brand until Thor bought them. And in my opinion Thor is the worst of the three if that is even possible.

RE: Travel trailer recommendation

Sounds reasonable. You say 6000 dry, because wet we would be approaching 7000+... getting near max. Right? Yes that is correct in what he was saying. For example our new Apex dry weight is around 5975lbs. The GVWR is around 7600lbs. That means we can add up to 1625lbs of cargo. And our tow vehicle like yours is rated at 7800lbs. Now that does not mean you want to max your cargo if possible. We pack lite so we do not get close to maxing out are cargo weight. Never max your tow weight rating. You also want to consider how much weight you pack into your tow vehicle. And get a good weight distribution hitch. Your Yukon like my Avalanche is built on a truck frame even though the Yukon is considered and SUV. So you are ok in that department. When you see folks post comments warning about using SUV's to tow it is because of the mid size SUV's with big motors that say they can tow a lot of weight but have sub/uni frame designs. Hope this helps.

RE: Travel trailer recommendation

We just did the same thing. Sold our hybrid and just bought a new 2021 Coachmen Apex 300BHS. The Apex line is very nice and are lite weight for 1/2tons to tow. https://coachmenrv.com/travel-trailers/apex-ultra-lite

RE: Said good by our hybrid

May I ask what you got for it? Thinking about selling ours which is similar vintage and have no idea where to start. Unless we aren't allowed to talk about such things here I sold it for $4900.

Said good by our hybrid

So after many years of enjoyment from our Jayco 25E hybrid we bought a new Coachman Apex 300 TT. We bought our hybrid in 2007 used, its a 2005. We had many trips in it all over the east coast. Lots of memories. It was hard to see it go but it went to another family who will continue to use it and make memories for them. As I get older I was wanting a little less setup. As much as I love the tent feel sleeping I will not miss the extra noise from other campers at 5am. LOL We look forward to new memories in our new TT.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

No dog in the hunt (I don't RV anymore) but a couple of things jumped out at me: - It seems like KOA is somehow the benchmark? Didn't used to be that way 10+ years ago when I was active; - A nice shiny new park where one is 2' away from the next guy is not appealing but FWIW, I'd pay a fair amount of coin for a spot that was: a) newish; b) clean; c) not decaying; d) not jammed; and e) had good clean showers and washrooms. I fly the ol PA-12 out every summer for some real boondocking, but when I used to RV, a nice spacious layout served with a clean shower setup was always worth a fair amount of money. I am surprised no one ask what a PA-12 is. LOL I know as my dad taught me to fly in a PA-22. Happy flying!

RE: Just sold the hybrid after 10 years.

This year makes 13 years he have had our Jayco 25E. We are looking at an APEX 300BH for the same reason. Getting older and want something that makes it harder to hear the neighbors while I am trying to sleep. Although we plan to sell our hybrid part of me is not sure I can part with it. Just so many good memories. I have two nieces that would go camping with us from the time they were about five years old. One is in college and one is graduating high school this year. And my son just turned 13 but he still likes to go and take friends. And like others we took our hybrid a lot of places. Good luck with your new TT.
