RE: When to sign and what to sign? New 2019 trailer purchase.

I special ordered my travel trailer at a dealership and also had a lot of upgrades added. I got a larger ac unit and fridge, a hot rod installed for electric hot water and special upholstery. I put 1,000 down and didn't sign any loan papers. When the travel trailer arrived at the dealership, I did the walkthrough. Then, I went to the bank and signed the loan papers authorizing them to pay the dealership and took delivery on the trailer.

RE: Nightmare experience with RV service center

I hope you charged the $600 to a credit card or debit card with a MasterCard or Visa logo. You can dispute the charge and most likely get all your money back.

RE: Anyone use a TPMS for their trailer?

I have TireMinder on my travel trailer. I have had the system for over 2 years with no problems. Their customer service is excellent and they send you new batteries for the tire monitors for free every year.

RE: Security camera in motorhome

Why mess with all that hard wiring and wi-fi connections. Go buy an Arlo Go camera.It works like a cell phone. You can just pick it up and take it anywhere without having to set up a wi-fi connection. You just download the Arlo app to turn the camera on & off. It has a motion detector that can be turned on or off. You can talk to your pet through the camera. The best thing is it can be used at home, your car or anywhere. They are about $400 but well worth it. They also have a built in alarm system with a siren. All the features can be turned on or off through the app and their customer service is fantastic.

RE: Tire size and budget limit me to: Sumitomo or Hankook

I have purchased both Toyo and Hankook over the years. The Hankook tires are the best. My first set of Hankook tires had a 45,000 mile guarantee. At 100,000 mile, they still had enough tread to pass the yearly inspection. I love these tires and will always purchase Hankooks.

RE: The Campground Driveby

We have the same problem in the subdivision where I live. It is in a very small rural area. Our houses are set on 1 - 5 acres. The whole subdivision is only 5 streets. This strange drive by behavior started almost 2 years ago by people who had just moved in recently. It first started in the spring 2 years ago. My street has only 4 houses on it & I own 2 of them. One morning, I was eating breakfast & this silver pickup drove by going very slowly. I wouldn't have noticed but their engine was loud. This pickup drove by every 30 minutes all day long. I thought at first they were looking for a loose dog, horse or goat. After the third day, I called the county sheriff. The police parked at the end of my street and observed this person drive by several times. The only thing the sheriff could think of was maybe this lady was learning to drive since she never left the subdivision. The only thing is sometimes it was a man alone in the pickup. After about a week of this behavior, I got in my car and followed her. I wanted her to know that I was following her because I wanted her behavior to stop. This must have upset her because she pulled into her driveway on the street next to mine and got out. She had a baby in a carrier in the pickup with her. I drove off and went home. I would never confront anyone. I am a chicken but I wanted to find out what she was doing. She drives around the whole subdivision then goes in her house. Twenty minutes later, she loads the baby back in the pickup & the whole process starts over again. I wouldn't have been very concerned but my rental house next door to me was vacant. I was worried that they were scouting the area for something to steal. Anyway, this has gone on now for almost 2 years. They start around 7 am & it goes on until I go to bed. Most of the time it is the woman. I believe her husband must work. Mostly, on the weekends, it is her husband doing the drive by. One day this last winter, it was sleeting and 17 degrees outside with the wind blowing. This woman still put her baby in the pickup and continued her every 30 minute drive by all around the subdivision. This is very odd behavior and I have yet to figure out why they do this. I thought at first the woman had some obsessive compulsive behavior but her husband drives by also. If any police officer or psychiatrist has an answer to this I would love to know. After watching this for almost 2 years, I just ignore it but it is still a mystery. Strange but True.

RE: Starcraft, Jayco, Coleman, Viking....Other

Check out the KZ Sportsmen Classic 180bh. I upgraded to the 6 cubit ft. refrigerator and also the larger a.c. unit. Even with the upgrades, the dry weight was only 2700lbs. I tow with my Kia Sedona minivan. My maximum tow weight is 3500.

RE: What do you love about your TT?

I purchased a KZ Sportsmen Classic 180bh a year and a half ago. I love everything about it. I love that I have had no leaks, no problems with anything in the travel trailer. Everything has worked perfectly. I love the closet where I can hang up my clothes and more storage than I need. I love the small tub in the shower. I love the regular queen size mattress on the bed instead of a little foam thing. The only thing I don't like is that the microwave ovens in travel trailers are up high. I am only 5'4" and I have to stand on a step stool to see what I am cooking.

RE: Orlando for Adults

Yes, Universal Studios is what I was talking about.

RE: Orlando for Adults

I am 66 years old but you should not miss Universal Studios. It is my first choice every time I go to Orlando. While some of the rides are for thrill seekers,a lot of them are in simulators that make you feel like you are moving even when you are not. They have back stage tours of movies they are filming. It is an astounding park. Please google the attractions. Even being an adult, the Harry Potter attraction is fascinating and you can ride a broomstick up into the air. Also a tip if you are going to Orlando. Take morning tours of the time shares. They usually provide a free breakfast and a free ticket to any of the parks. You will still be at the park by the time the gates open. Just be insistent with the time share people that you are not going to make a purchase after the tour. I went to Orlando several times with a friend and a relative. We would tour a different time share each morning and get our free tickets to the parks. We went to all of the parks this way. This frees up a lot of money to buy souvenirs and go to restaurants. Please do not miss Universal Studios.

RE: Question about R-pod Vs. other small trailers! New to this!

I tow a 2017 KZ Sportsmen Classic 180bh with my 2006 Kia Sedona EX minivan. Even after upgrading to a larger fridge and a.c. unit, the weight of the travel trailer was only 2700 lbs. The 180bh has bunkbeds and a queen size bed with a regular mattress. It also has a large closet to hang your clothes. Some of the models you have looked at have no closet space at all. Also, 3,000lbs unloaded is too much for your minivan. Add the weight of the passengers and you will be over your weight limit. Also, I highly recommend that you make a few changes to your minivan. Have the largest external transmission cooler added. I put Timbren suspension springs on the rear, E2 weight distribution hitch with built in sway control, and a brake controller. The most important thing I did was to get the dealer to let me do a test tow before purchasing the travel trailer. The dealer let me test tow a used trailer that weighed several hundred pounds more than the one I was purchasing. This extra weight will account for a fully loaded travel trailer. If the dealer will not do this, either rent a trailer for a day or find someone who has one for sale that will allow you to do so. I have no problem towing with my Kia but you have a different minivan. I suggest you have the hitch installed first and then do a test tow before you invest money in the upgrades to your minivan. This way you will know if your vehicle can handle towing the travel trailer. Another thing I do is travel with my water tanks empty and purchase most of my groceries after arriving at my destination.

RE: Need help selecting TT for small family

Look at the KZ Sportsman Classic 180bh. I bought one of these and I love it. The shower has a small tub that is great for kids. I would recommend upgrading to the larger fridge and a.c. unit. Even with the upgrades, you would still be under budget. Another thing I like about it is the large closet to hang up your clothes and it has tons of storage space.
