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

I cover for the UV protection only,that's about all a breathable cover does and allows for a beautiful lawn of mildew to form on the roof,mine does. Perhaps I need to look at other covers but my current thick canvas cover doesn't impress.

RE: Air OPUS - inflatable off-road trailer

It's just a Starcraft Evolution with a bigger price tag....can't see it becoming a big seller.

RE: For all the "can i tow it with my xxxxx?" questions

Looks safe to me.....well within his payload and likely E rated tires.

RE: tires

I've ran nothing but Duro and Trailer King and yet to experience a single issue in many years of Rving. Understand the load ratings and keep them properly inflated....I've always ran max psi.

RE: Newbies

First question to ask: Do you have any used units for sale? Second question: do you have anything cheaper? If you haven’t done much or any camping, you may not like it and you sure don’t want to be upside down with long term payments on something you don’t like. Yes, It seems to take about 4 different campers before you decide what it is that you really want and like. By a used camper used first!! Then if you decide that you like camping you can then purchase a new one. Not to discourage the OP but your actually correct, it took us 4 trailers to be 100% content. Lol Unfortunately 4 different tow vehicles, ouch.

RE: Thinking of upgrading

I say go for it. The wife and I are getting ready to retire and are still loving the Hybrid after 10 years.

I'm retiring early because of how well the stock market has done....unless it's because of my adviser. Lol

RE: Newbies

You should be fine picking out a nice trailer for the two of you with the full size truck but pay more attention to the trailers GVWR and pay no mind to it's dry weight. I always recommend a weight distribution hitch with antisway. Good luck in your search.

RE: 5th wheel or bumper pull

To the OP, No doubt that a 5er will tow better than an equally equipped bumper pull but 2 valid reasons I remain on the bumper. 1. My building won't support the SIGNIFICANT height difference. 2. I require all of the truck bed each and everytime out.

RE: You're right!

I'm not gonna let someone miles away on a forum rattle my cage. Lol Many years and still enjoy it here.

RE: question about battery

The simplest thing to do is leave the the trailer plugged in year around. I'm 10 years in on latest trailer and not once have used the disconnect. Drained batteries have little life expectancy.

RE: This chapter done, what next?

Hmmm we're also right there. Getting ready to retire, kids gone and we are struggling with which way to go. At present, a 28ft trailer has the nod simply because I'm an avid fisherman and my rotomolded bass boat slides into the bed off truck....yeah kinda limits our choices if I want to continue fishing at all the lakes we camp at.

RE: Kiplinger: 13 Reasons You'll Regret An RV In Retirement

That article doesn't apply to us or perhaps our mindset. Rving is simply instilled in us, we raised our children rving and at near 60,wife 50 something, still thoroughly enjoyed camping mainly in state parks all over the country. Never considered the cost but surely not gonna lay on the couch clutching my money. Lol

RE: Slideout Sticking

I have always used silicone twice a year on all seals to prevent sticking. I'm sure there's other products specifically designed for this purpose but silicone spray is relatively inexpensive.

RE: Personal experience with having slides and no slides?

The wife and I have been avid campers for over 35 years and would not even consider a trailer without a slide. We've been fortunate to not experience an issue.. What sold us was a rainy weekend back in the 80's with young children and the constant echo of " excuse me " " coming through ". Lol Funny but true.

RE: Tow vehicles

We're on our third hybrid and don't find them that easy to tow as advertised by the manufacturer. Our latest, a Starcraft 21SSO is being towed by a Dodge Ram 5.7 Hemi and we feel it back there.

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

The wife and I have been camping for 35 years and find some of these posts somewhat off base.....all this offroad and vibration. These are travel trailers not Jeep Rubicons. Give trailer manufacturers some credit even though you don't own one of they're units. Lol We've looked at Lance and can find nothing negative to say other than " wish we could afford one " very nice trailers.

RE: "Downgrading" trucks

Hmmm I was in the market for a new HD truck but now looking at used Fiats. Lol
