Storage towable Trailers off road types? "suggestions"

Looking for recommendations on a tow-behind "BOX TRAILER," with two or four wheels and break Lights, that has more than one lock. Made of metal aluminum. About 6 to 7-foot long. Maybe 6-foot wide and five-foot-high max good ground clearance? Any suggestions for websites, brand names, where sold high off ground RUGGED Box and not over 6-foot high off the ground overall max height? Thanks in advance for any help or ideas. Sizes are all just approximates. This will be towed behind my CLass B, and not for sleeping in, just extra outdoor gear and off ROAD. OH YES, MADE IN THE USA?

Class B folks, how far North and South?

Over the years of RVing how far North and how far South have you driven during your like time of RVing? Then how far East to West and West to East. Atlantic & Pacific? This question is for Class b Van owners. What did you learn was the most go-to item(s) you would take again. Anyone went from Punta Arenas, Argentina in South America to Prudhoe Bay, AK. What would you advise anyone who was going to do the Paths you paved? Thanks, In-Advance for your Feedback.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

Good feedback thanks from everyone who give me feedback as I did read all of them. If anything talking with your spouse about the probability of a life-altering event. Having some kind of family fallback system is a good option if you have other loved ones who can help. Each camper should look closer at the other's duties and ask questions about how and why they do what they do. Being open with each other is not easy when one partner is in complete and total denial. My wife asked me sometime back as we live in Florida and our daughter is in Utah. what would I do if something happened to her? WOW, I thought I would go first. After some thought I know it would be hard for my daughter with us being so far apart. I'm not much for the cold, but I think it best to be closer to her so she won't worry so much and will handle it as we go, until then, But we're talking and that is the START for a Happy ending to one's life story. Family or NO Family you need to talk about these possible issues. Thanks for SHARING

RE: A Very Touching Movie

Truly have enjoyed reading this thread of MOVIE favorites. I have seen about all but two. I did not see anything about Christine Bale -Actor in the western "Hostiles" made in 2017. I still do not know why I kept returning to watch it over and over some 6-times or more. Came across it on Netflix, no longer showing. About a small group of Military 1866-union Soldiers-Calvery escorting an Indian Chief and his family to the Decota hills to die. For myself, a very moving movie well done, acting as they fight off PTSD for prior conflicts, and save a woman who lost her family.

Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

My wife and I were married back in 1974. We have one daughter who is now 48. I have been a long-time camper and had our share of outdoor toys, why before the toy haulers were popular and many other trailers I've seen roll off the assembly line. We were camping before our first family Ford VAN came along in 1975-Econoline VAN, by myself with shag carpet which was converted into a make-shift camper before that was even a thing, with crazy wild color carpet. At some point, we jumped into trailers for room and comforts. Then came the day we got a Class A, motorhome and began to tour parts of the USA before I neared retirement. Which we switched into a longer and newer model as we were going on a full-time tour. But our lives were always pulled back by our jobs and the need others had for what was in our heads. ""haha"" Our daughter and her husband followed our tracks getting a Trailer toy-Haller. Some small boats and them ATV things. Without knowing came the words I had always heard from my wife. But this time from my daughter while on a camping trip. "Dad, she said" I don't know what I would do, if I lost Jon, and had to pack everything and hook up the trailer to head back home? This was the first time I had even entertained the thought as I always felt it would just work itself all out, Okay. Or would it all be alright? Once, on an away trip in Class A, I had gotten very dizzy, sick, and broke into a cold sweat, as I had done almost 30-days apart for the prior year. A few trips to the Doctor and we learned my Gull Bladder had to go. So I was getting what my wide and daughter had been asking me about for years?. As we departed Utah and headed back home to Florida in our Class A, the very thought was what would the weakest minded person do to get it all back home in one peace? I had just turned 70-years old and the coming year came COVID-19 came 2020. We sold our Class A, and we jumped into a Class B, Coachmen Galleria. As it has turned out has been great for restaurants visits and eating out with COVID in the air, while inside the VAN watching TV. Also driving our Van to some doctor visits and took in an RV Park to do our shake-down trip. The wife and I have been together for over 50-years and were still in love and get along very well. I asked if the VAN would work? She said she could handle the VAN, but what if I dropped dead on the ground? Simple now my dear wife. Call the POLICE while I'm still on the ground and don't touch me just tell them it's not my "Gull Bladder" they will know what to do. Then call our lawyer to handle the details and drive back home. Or call our SON-in-Law and fly back home or wait and go back with JON or our daughter whatever. Also, we know she can handle the Van. But what about the VAN, give it to the KIDS, and tell Jon if he has a problem with the Beer give it to our fellow RV'ers wherever were parked. So my fellow RV'ers, I posse this question to anyone who has an idea or has been asked by their spouse. You're out on your last campground outing and then your Facedown in the dirt, What would you suggest to others be done with you? And if alone who would know? This very thing did happen to a fellow RV'er while at and RV Park. The Fire and Ambulance arrived at the RV Park, which got everyone's attention in the park. We learned the man had a heart attic and they took him away. She left with them and on her return. My wife took her a dish of potato salad. She, my wife was unable to talk with her and the RV Park gave them a Free Park visit. Some of us park fellow RV'ers guys, went over and rolled up and unhooked everything, and she towed the Vehicle all back home about 500-miles away. This all took a few days maybe just two days. It all happened kind of fast. I Would like to know your thoughts? if something were to happen in front of you? I can see at 50-or even 80-years of age can be a big deal for the partner or family members to deal with the passing of another and having to deal with the details. What would you do or think should be done, I would like to know. Let's please not know if it did but keep the post objective as to details would be helpful in just knowing. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Why keep soliciting...

YUP, the calls, and last year they started doing TEXT messages which I have now learned to BLOCK them all, and still, they keep calls following. I guess it takes one SUCKER to generate another 1000 or more telemarketing calls from out of the country. Thousands of dollars following out of the USA to folks making easy calls. Now I understand why OLD-man become grumpy, it's all the FREE Money folks keep asking for. OH man don't get me started or I'll jump into Flag and country. I TAKE all ADVERTIZING CALLS as an attack on the American LIFE and DON'T Answer or reply, then have fun BLOCKING CALLS and TEXT messaging advertisements.

RE: Allegro Bus Fan Gear Box Replacement on Powerglide Chassis

ROGER, sorry buddy as I'm trying to understand your question? ANYONE DONE WHAT TO WHAT? What and where is whatever leaking? As for FAN and driveshaft coming off, what VEHICLES GEARBOX? Need more information. Could this be for one of your two vehicles? If so which one and what? 2010 Allegro Bus 43 QBP . . . 2016 Lincoln MKX Thinking of the connection between Transmission and Driveshaft, there should be a peace missing that connects the two together. It looks like a CROSS with even ends. And once in place is filled with impact grease to keep the ends pushed out connecting the transmission and driveshaft. As when this happens on the roadway that part is found laying on the roadway about 200-yards behind the vehicle. Try and recall when this happened and walk back looking for the CROSS as it's about 4" inch CROSS CENTER. Good Luck. If I understand you correctly?

RE: Allegro Bus Fan Gear Box Replacement on Powerglide Chassis

Anyone done this on their own.. Was looking at it as mine is starting to leak. Seems easy to do was wondering how the fan and drive shaft come off the gearbox.

RE: Chipmunks

Squirrels will get rid of chipmunks, get a squirrel. Then get a woodchucks to take care of the squirrels? One year I took out 20+ squirrel's with a pellet gun. They had backups ready to go. As soon as I took one out a backup showed up. I have a Red Shoulder Hawk couple that lives on the property and I am sure they help, but my numbers stay rather steady. One of out our cats decapitated one one and used the head as a ball. Just depends on his mood at the time though, not reliable. You GUYS have made my day, as things were a bit touch and go at the homestead here in Florida. I read both messages and I started rolling on the floor laughing so hard I was crying. You added a whole other meaning to the word "BACKUP" so funny thanks. What do you think of using the SOUND alarm things? As they give off a high-pitched sound? That runs them off? I am going to setup a water bucket and then I'll just feed them to the snakes, and birds to eat. Thanks guys big help.

RE: Campfire story about "you and space?"

So Dutch 12078, "Airstream Astro". would be your Recreational Vehicle of choice! Funny and I do so understand your selection. Cool picture, by the way, is that a USA-made rocket?

RE: Campfire story about "you and space?"

an Essex tri-directional! WOW, well okay then, I did not see any RV, just a tractor, was that what you had in mind? My point was trying to find out what would make you happy, for say a month or longer.

RE: Also

Do you know who first said , " do not believe every thing that you read on the internet " ? Thomas Jefferson . First, Thomas Jefferson, we all know was the President and passed away in the 1820s, So about 200-years ago. The next part of the internet came along during the Clinton years as President, and VP AL Gore taking credit for inventing the internet somewhere in the 1990s. Now to address the quote: It has been stated otherways as "Do not believe everything you HEAR" In the Holy Bible "DO NOT BELIEVE" is stated 45-times and the closes framer is found in "1 John 4:1-6" Also is the Believers Freedom, in "1 Corinthians 10:23" As the founding Fathers of the USA Constitution, are the FRAMERS. They were very much into the word of God, and followers of Christ. As for THE "Former President Thomas Jefferson" who is noted for over 1811-quotes during his time it is more likely that he said "Do NOT Believe Everything you Hear""Do NOT Believe Everything you Hear" than for him to have said as you stated above, the ANSWER to your question NO, taking that we know of no other commonly known Thomas Jefferson than the one we read about in American History. This may be more helpful, in thinking about the phraseology of words and what we refer to as errors or hiccups in thinking. Enjoy this video. Don't Believe Everything your Brain is telling you.

Towing Planner, Fuel Cost, DOT TIRE Date Code

Sometime Back I was Planning an RV trip with Family and friends. After I had invited everyone, I began to think about all the weight load? Fuel Cost and my tires? Feeling a bit worried about inviting so many people. I went to the Internet forum and posted the question to them. I must have gotten 20-returns from all the Math geniuses on the internet, and I R not one of them, trust me, I'm not. But one man stepped to the plate with a wonderful online calculator. Once I opened the TowingPlanner.Com website I soon noticed inside was 14-other RV-related Calculators and all for free. So So, Enjoy and I hope you have as much fun as I did, using all the calculators.

Campfire story about "you and space?"

Some of you may have read the news story about sending a CAR into space. Now if space is as it is with one exception, you can breathe fresh cleaner air, than on Earth. What, of all Recreational Vehicles (RV) of your dream, which would you select to drive to MARS and stay awhile and then drive back to Earth. Now the important part of this question. Why that RV, you selected, for the trip to MARS and BACK?

RE: IMAGE PHOTO POSTING onto Forum?

YES, as I stated I tried the drag and drop and NOTHING, Thanks but did not work as shown in my post. Drag-and-drop your photo where? I'm not referencing the IMGUR.com website? Also, do 'not' use this forum https://i.imgur.com/rgdcyKc.png image icon to post the URL photo link if copying BBCode. Just paste the code directly into your post. 1492, I did try and post the link from Imgur directly and all it showed me was a navy BLUE Link and no image. So for myself to get it to work for me. I had to visit Igumr and copy Direct LINK and then return to Forum and PULL down IMAGE TAB to make it work for me.

RE: IMAGE PHOTO POSTING onto Forum?

MitchF150, Funny as you seemed to have gotten it to work? I'm not sure what I did wrong, I OPENED Imgur and found my BBCODE and saw it was for the forum post. Clicked copy. I then returned to this RV.NET as nothing was showing in Motorhomemagazine.com and then selected RV FORUM, found admin, and noted he was in RV.NET, Okay so I was in the right wrong forum, you tell me? As all of you are showing in RV.net but not in the other forum, I updated all of my stuff when I first returned as so that it all carried over. Okay, back to the photos Inside inside Imgur I clicked on BBCODE and saw that was in fact for forum usage. Copied link and opened and ICON inside text and nothing. SO above I clicked on the Image ICON as shown above. https://i.imgur.com/dYjFC5G.jpg Okay now I click post. Here is what the link appears and I noted this a JPG file. And entered no Height or weight haha. https://i.imgur.com/dYjFC5G.jpg Now just the link on the page as copied https://i.imgur.com/dYjFC5G.jpg
