RE: how much is too little to spend on a Used Pop Up?

I recently bought a 2007 Jayco Select 12HW at toy auction for $375 bid rated 0.0 for broken lift. Had to pay auction $375 service fee as well. Left rear latch ripped off. Knew it was easiest post to get to for repairs . Forced it up. Broken pulley on track. Broken cable and torqued out lift screw. Shoddy exterior hatchet repair by previous owner that broke lift and latch tore off side allowed water in and rotted the luan outer shell. Will peel the side and replace the **** wood this fall/winter. I’m $1000 into a $5000 retail luxury pup.

RE: how much is too little to spend on a Used Pop Up?

Pups should only be 1000 to 2000 90s. Models. 2500 to 3500 2000s. 4000-8000 2010s on up. Lift systems shot. Tents $1400.

RE: Anyone else camp in an A-frame?

I think a liner or the rockwood Or Jayco variants are good for solo campers only. Like slim potatoes. Very minimalist one bed. One dinette. Or get the dormer for wet bathroom.

RE: Which forum would my trailer fall under

Yeah pop ups are dead on and camping in general. Most are buying the single axle trailer debaucheries before figuring it out. I have pups for boondocking use only.

RE: Top Class Bs for towing?

We just purchased at auction a 2015 triple E MB Sprinted FS22SS. 3500 series sprinter with slide-out hidden in sprinter factory body and rear dry bathroom. The holy grail class b. What’s the tow rating on 3.0 liter sprinter 3500 series and slide out?

RE: What were they thinking?

RE: TT for full time living or negatives of trailer brands

Are you buying this TT new or used? You stated "First I have a tow vehicle that can tow 8,000 pounds with a tongue weight of 8000 pounds." What vehicle has a tongue weight of 8000 lbs? I fat fingered, 800.. 800 pounds. That’d sounds like a suv p rated tires and debatable frame or unibody construction. Trailer jumps to 6500 pound max weight. That’s a small trailer dual axles max 23ft 25t. Typical 23 foot hybrid camper with would be your maximum trailer for sleeping or a couples small trailer.

RE: using a 2012 ridgeline for towing

What’s a ridgeline in the realm of 1/2 ton 150/ 1500 series. That whatever pickup is a 1/4 ton or less 75/750 series boat hauler.

RE: 2003 Coleman Caravan C25-SLB - Help?

Drains to fresh water tank and low point drains should be there . If none hook up airline and blow out our all lines. Follow up with winterize. If no draw by water pump you can add one. Very simple add with parts at any plumbing store. Next go to water heater to see if it has a hot water bypass. If none you need 6 gallons of antifreeze in the hot water tank. Hot water bypass can be sourced at chinazom.

RE: What do you want in a campground?

After 10 years of family camping I evolved to strictly boondocking. Have state and national forests to disperse camp at my leisure now.

RE: Trying to find this floorplan

Most camping trailer I’d pull behind a unibody fake suv with zero off-road attributes is a 10 foot popup camper. Somebody’s in a bad mood.... 3 pages worth of people saying too much for your CUV.

So what lol so called SUV do you own that may or might be 5000 rated. Mostly modern day cough CUV including joke exploder and traverse can’t tow a utility trailer empty unless they have factory equipped tow package.

RE: Has anyone looked at the Jeep Gladiator?

Many Gladiators are showing up on the roads in PA. Some seen towing 22 foot lake boats, and other toys. Looks to be a colorado, ranger, taco, and frontier killers. Soccer mom mobile 4 door jeeps will soon be gladiator versions.

RE: Newer RVs....ugh

Most campers made are delamninating before they reach the dealer. The junk single axle garbage trailer dominating the newbies are ready to self destruct this winter.

RE: Is this forum dead, wow

Yeah forums dead, popups are dead. I finally got my estimate and total information on my 07 Jayco 1206 that got t-boned back on 7/13/19. Paid $2k for the rat and got $6300 lol. Goodbye camping as a norm with kids in sports now 80 percent of the year.

Camper T boned while enRoute on camping trip

Back in July I was on my way to a weekend trip with my daughters. I was in my k2500 suburban and towing my popup camper. A 17 year old with learners permit ran a stop sign and drove right into the pup at front corner and a frame. Immediate total for that disaster, truck however different story. Given the rareness and frames on k2500 subs and k2500 avalanches they have an bend in frame and non reparable driver side rear shock mount. The outrigger broke off the frame from truck totaling the k2500 sub. If you have a pickup that minor side force can break that shock mount and get replaced. Out of luck k2500 subs and Avalanches.
