RE: Mirage Balboa Toy haulers

Steve_Cornell, Here is a search from the archives that might help you out. Lwiddis do you have any actual info on the Mirage Balboa or just spouting off in general terms?

RE: CJ5 Flat Tow?

This is nothing offcial, you may have seen it already but it does address the speed limit for some, usually no more then 50mph. Willys / Jeep Flat Towing (CJ2A, CJ3A, CJ3B, CJ5, CJ7 and newer)

RE: Our Zion National park trip

Looks great, thanks for your trip report and photos, I always look forward to them. We did a Zion, Coral Pink Dunes, Bryce, Paiute Trail trip with our family back in 2007, loved it. Except it was 105 degrees in Zion and about the same in Coral Pink.

RE: Dinghy Tow Tacoma w/Manual Transmission

sprocketsandwheels it's ultimately up to you, but the owners manual and Toyota dealer/factory have said no, so why would you take the word of a shop? For me if the owners manual says no that is good enough for me. Unless the shop is going to warranty and fix your truck I wouldn't trust them. Good luck, let us know what you decide.

RE: Dinghy Tow Tacoma w/Manual Transmission

For the fun of it check to see what Remco has to say too.

RE: Water warning at state park

What I find concerning having just looked at the reservation site is there is no warning of this situation posted, while they do have other warnings. Seems like a reasonable expectation that the State should notify visitors in advance. * Due to abnormally high strength waste negatively impacting the septic system, we ask that campers not use any type of chemical additive in their holding tanks. Chemical additive use could result in a failure and closure of the park sewage systems. * Only one vehicle is included in your campsite fee. An extra vehicle, unless towed, costs $10 per night. Please check site data for on-site and off-site parking as not all campsites can accommodate an extra vehicle. * Due to COVID-19 cross-border travel restrictions, Washington State Parks encourages all Out of Country travelers to hold off on reserving at this time. Once cross-border travel restrictions are lifted, we would be more than happy to welcome you back to Washington State Parks.

RE: Toad damage from road debris.

Jeep Wrangler windshields are notorious for getting sand blasted even without being towed. I spoke with one guy that used a winter snow shield on his Jeep to protect it, had to cut it modify it but said it worked well.

RE: JEEP as TOAD

I'm only aware of two bumpers that say they are rated for towing; Rock Hard 4x4 and LoD bumpers. Most the bumpers that have welded D rings will say they are not rated for towing, I'm sure it's the lawyers talking but none the less that is their stance. Rock Hard does make brackets that work with Blue-Ox, RoadMaster, or Reese tow bars. In the case of those, the stress point isn't the bumper itself but the bracket, and the bolts. Both of those bumpers are in the $800+ range for a full width.

RE: Toy Hauler Bed Conversion

I haven't seen anything like the commercially. Doesn't mean you can't though. But trying to get it to be comfortable might be a challenge. You might look under the existing couches to see if there is a manufacturer name on them, somebody you could call. Finding a center mattress piece that is the same size and density would be the issue that comes to mind.

RE: Momentum vs others floor decking

What are you planning to haul is a big factor, I'm not sure of the weight allowances of those two units. You'd have to read the warranty details of the decking on the Momentum, to really understand it. I was disappointed when they went to the 1 year warranty, that is a big plus to the KZ.

RE: JEEP as TOAD

Don't think I have ever seen anything but a Wrangler with hooks Pretty sure they are standard on the Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk and at least some of the Jeep Renegade models too. But most common on the newer Wranglers for sure.

RE: Mother of Invention Toy Hauler

I wasn't the only one stopping to take a photo of it, lot of amazement and bewildered looks.

RE: Power issue

Needs to fire up the generator and charge things up. If his batteries are to low to fire up the generator he needs to hook up the power cable for lights/brakes to the truck and fire it up. That should give him enough power to get the generator running. If he's using an inverter to take power from the 12v batteries he could be draining his batteries. Without knowing his battery setup it's hard to say, and not knowing how well he maintains the batteries or their age it's hard to give much advice.

RE: Toyhauler hitch/truck setup

RoyBell talk to the dealer, many have portable scales you can get weighed right on the spot.

RE: Ready 2 hit the road again

Enjoy the trip. I completely agree with making memories. My oldest just finished Grad school and is getting married. I was thankful that I had the time to take our kids on a lot of trips. Looking forward to your trip report and your photos when you return!

RE: Gas Buddy 25 cents off ??

From what I gather Costco is cheaper but every time we see one there are 45 minute lineups everyday all day. Thankfully my Costco is never like that, I know where all the Costco Gas Stations are along my routes, mostly in the Northwest, even the busy one in Portland Oregon never takes 45 minutes, backed up like that photo takes about 20. But they also pump the gas so they are more efficient then having drivers do it. They encourage motorhomes to get in the far right late so they will close off late behind you, they know a 75 gallon tank takes a while.
