RE: Bunkhouse layout with dinette in bunkhouse

Keystone Hideout has some unique floor plans that might work. They have some with cube couches in the back that I'm sure you could swap with a dinette.

RE: Half ton towable fifth wheel

Yet another of the long line of just enough truck posts. If you want a fifth wheel, why not just get a 3/4 ton or 1 ton truck and be done with it?Usually because they tow 5-10 times a year and don't feel like driving a HD truck the rest of the time. Not everyone wants to commute with a 3/4 ton, and if it fits the specs, then why not?

RE: Question around Cold Temps

If temps are only dipping below freezing for 6 to 8 hours and above freezing the rest of the day I would not concern myself with it. I have never winterized any of my trailers until temps are consistently around freezing or below for 24 hour periods and I have never had an issue.+1 Unless you are in prolonged temps at or below freezing, you will be fine.

RE: Which WDH?

90% of the third party trailer towers delivering trailers are using DRW and no WDH. If you do go for something for peace of mind and to help sway, I put in a vote for the Blue Ox. Used it on my older setup (10k TT and F250) as well as my current setup and I have been nothing but pleased.

RE: Upgraded my tow vehicle, do I still need a WDH?

I mean, if you have the hitch, why not utilize it?

RE: Murphy Bed vs. Separate Bedroom

No hard doors required. We just go at it after the kids go to bed, or at the fire. We opted for the regular bed because I wanted to preserve the pass-through storage and figured we would just use the bed as a couch anyways. We live in NY was well and camp in the Adirondacks and in the Finger Lakes, so we definitely battle the weather. I enjoy not having to fold up the bed, the storage underneath and the upgraded mattress. We came from a MUCH larger camper and haven't minded the downsize.

RE: Trying to find this floorplan

I love my Apex Nano. That's all I have to say.

RE: Biggest unit you know of under 3,500 pounds ???

My weekly plug for someone to check out the Coachman Apex Nano line. All under 4,000 pounds and would match up with the Ridgeline.

RE: The best mid-size truck for 2019? Honda!

I love my Canyon and I was coming out of a 3/4 ton gasser. Does everything I need a truck to do and it tows our new 5,250lb loaded trailer like a dream. It's every bit of truck that a standard pre-2010 1/2 ton is.

RE: First TT advice

As a starting point, I'd eliminate model numbers with 26 or higher in their name from your vocabulary and stick to the 24 and lower ones. For two people just starting out, you should be able to find plenty of trailer in those lengths.

RE: How do you really judge TV adequacy anymore?

The ole 1/2, 3/4 1 ton designations no longer apply.......haven't for YEARS What does apply is 'CLASS' Ratings GVWR Ranges define CLASS Class I-------up to 6000# Class II--------up to 10,000# Class III----------up to 14,000# GVWR minus UVW equals Payload For ME........I go by Axle/Tire Load Ratings to determine WHAT Can I Tow?This right here. Consider my Canyon. It's almost a 3/4 ton with 1,470lbs of payload on the door.

RE: Winter Storage of a Travel Trailer?????

I've never covered and I am pretty positive I get worse winters than you outside of Rochester, NY. We have major RV dealers all around here and none of them cover their stock in the winter either. I am not saying no to covering, I just don't think it is a must by any means.

RE: Has anyone looked at the Jeep Gladiator?

Made a trip to the deer camp this weekend to fill feeders and seen countless 4 door Jeeps and a few 2 door Jeeps but not a single Gladiator. I've yet to see one in the wild!Four Door Wranglers are becoming the favorite for soccer moms around here.

RE: Water Pump while Boondocking

Learn something new everyday. Camper was new from the dealer and we never talked about an accumulator tank, nor have I ever heard of one. It's great for when the Littles get up in the middle of the night or we come in late since the pump is under the bunks.

Water Pump while Boondocking

Ok, so here is the deal. While boondocking, we only turn the water pump on when it's needed. The last two trips, the pump has built up enough pressure for multiple people to brush teeth, to wash dishes and the flush the toilet numerous times. After a while, we notice the pressure going down and run the pump. It will run for about two minutes and give lengthy pressure again. How and why?

RE: Love the Lance 2375 layout: but the price! Any alternatives?

I assume the front window would basically be windshield glass. That is what our Nano is.

RE: Roof weight limit?

If you have to get up there and are really fearful, cut a few 16" squares out of 3/4" ply and walk/crawl on them to distribute the weight.

RE: Love the Lance 2375 layout: but the price! Any alternatives?

Coachman Apex Nano 213RDS This is our first year in our Apex Nano, but the build quality is very good and you can't beat their weights for what you get in their floorplans.Thanks for sharing that! It is not bad on the weight department at all and is the closest I've seen weight-wise in a 25' to our Rockwood 2502. It looks like it only has one propane tank - is that correct? And also only a two burner stove with no oven, right?Our 208BHS has a two burner stove and no oven, so I'd assume this is the same. The stove works well and I've never used an oven except to store our bread, so that was a plus for us. It also came with one propane tank that I easily upgraded to dual 30lb tanks and dual batteries. Maybe $150 worth of parts from Amazon.

RE: what defines a 3/4 ton?

Hell, my Canyon is almost a 3/4 ton with 1,470lbs of payload on the door.
