RE: Need tires on my Ram Tow Vehicle.

Any tire except Goodyear. Can't believe the buck passing the CEO did with their support of BLM, but not LE or Trump. One of the largest freight companies in the US just announced that Goodyear is off their list.

RE: Anyone have experience with Palomino Truck campers?

Thanks to all. Lots of research and actually seeing one in person to do. Thanks for the info on Northstar. They look great.

RE: Anyone have experience with Palomino Truck campers?

There is someone in the “who full times in a truck camper” that says they bought one, might ask her “LadyRVer” directly. Thank you sir!

Anyone have experience with Palomino Truck campers?

I'm in N. California and while familiar with various Class C, trailers, etc., this Palamino brand is new to me. I could make a case for either hard side or canvas and would appreciate some input. They seem to be priced well, but I don't want cheap quality. Comments welcome and thank you. https://palominorv.com/truck-campers/backpack-truck-camper

Best Way To Add A/C to a older trailer?

I'm helping out my sister by trying to find a used trailer under 20'. I did find a Forest River model in great shape, but it does not have A/C and since we are in California, it's pretty much needed at times. What's the easiest/best solution? Generator running a portable unit, having a roof A/C installed, or? Anyone know ballpark cost of the first two solutions? Thanks much.

RE: 1997 Class C Winnebago, 47,000 miles too old to buy?

So did you buy the rig. I passed. Engine service light was on. Tires were 6 years old. They guy bought it two years ago and never used it and couldn’t show me how things worked. I decided it wasn’t worth a $500 inspection Wow, $500. inspection fee is laughable. Up here they run $100. and these are done by old school, experienced, and often a retired tech. Hope you find another. Here's a 1998 Itasca 32' that looks to have lots of newer parts and appears to be in very good condition. https://slo.craigslist.org/rvs/d/cayucos-1998-itasca-sunrise-32-class/7130438793.html I would love to see it and offer them $10,000, but that's a 6 hour drive away.

RE: 1997 Class C Winnebago, 47,000 miles too old to buy?

So did you buy the rig? I see them up here in Sacramento area around that year for $8500-$10,000 and in good to excellent condition. IF it's been taken care of, there is no downside. Take it to a good wrench for new hoses, belts, fluids flushed (including brake fluid), install new brake pads and hoses, get the roof sealed, flush out the holding tanks, service the generator, new rubber, and enjoy the heck out of it. Betting all of this can be done for under $2500. or so. You can buy a newer 2006 on up for $17,000 and still spend $3,000+ on getting it road worthy. Don't worry about the Triton engine with the 2 valve..we had a 1999 (98 production year) and that beast never let us down.Plenty of power and don't worry about any spark plug issue. Any mechanic can change out old plugs and torque to specs. Get out and enjoy life.

RE: What about a Keystone Bullet Colt 17Ft Travel Trailers?

I would also take a close look at the Venture travel trailer models in the length you are wanting. They have a lot of good features including a large shower in the rear bath and the use of the murphy bed up front which gives you the advantage of a full bed and the sofa at the front of the trailer. They also have a continuous one piece roof that runs from the bottom front to the bottom rear of the trailer. It should be less prone to leaking at the seams than normal TT roofs. If I were in the market for a small TT, they would definitely be on my short list. Barney Thank you Barney. This is a fine looking trailer and I like the way they utilize the space with that murphy bed and the seamless roof. I'm checking to see if they have a dealer in California or Nevada.

RE: What about a Keystone Bullet Colt 17Ft Travel Trailers?

After some closer inspection of the Keystone (and crawling under it), I'm passing as the quality of the materials used are a bit suspect. Same with the rPod and I now realize that with the tires to the outside of the trailer, they lose about a foot of width inside. Looking today at Lance and Winnebago Micro Mini. The Mico Mini takes me to double axel and I'm moving more towards this setup.Looking at the 1706FB: https://winnebago.com/models/product/micro-minnie If anyone see's any red flags on this rig, do tell. Thanks again.

What about a Keystone Bullet Colt 17Ft Travel Trailers?

I have looked at a few smaller 15-17', single axle trailers and ran across a 2018 Keystone Colt trailer. I realize Keystone is not top of the line, but it's build quality looked ok. The others I saw in person were the rPod (nice design/suspect quality) and the Winnebago Cube.I favor the Winnebago for its build quality. Comments on the Keystone trailer most welcome. Thanks

RE: Bushfires and Caravans

CBD is not going to help alleviate your symptoms; that's pretty obvious and apparently time out ain't working either. You're under the false impression your wordsmithing is not obvious. Thank you for your psychoanalysis. Where should I send the check?:R But as I tell my doctor, "please heal yourself first." And like you, I recommend easier diagnosis by looking yourself at the mirror. So where are we again at the topic? Climate change where the pretender-boss have Fox and the unschooled Hannity as the expert. Wow, such a ignorant and mindless ramble. Sorry your Dem contenders have nothing to offer voters except the phoney green nonsense and more taxes. You like big government to run your life..got it.

RE: Escape window falls out

Had the escape window from a fiver blow out while I was passing him on I5 near Dunsuir Ca. Did $16000.00 worth of damage to the side of my motorhome. Wow.. serious damage and very fortunate no one was hurt.
