RE: Collapsible ladder?

We use a collapse-able one like the above poster, have had it now for 8 years with no problems. We had a "bag" for it but it finally gave out now we just keep it covered with a heavy duty leaf bag. It fits between the mounted ladder and the rear of the 5'er. Good Luck, and Happy Camping !!

RE: Shocks F 250 Ranchos or Bilstiens?

I prefer the Bilsteans and the Ranchos as a second choice... and of course the cost is a factor as well. I've had both brands with no issues, other than normal wear. Good Luck and Happy Camping

cleaning the outside of the 5'er

After a couple of years being dormant, our 5'er has developed oxidation problems. I have been removing the peeling decals and everywhere where the decals were, the "finish" is still shiny and pristine looking. But everywhere else developed the oxidation issue. I saw an "oxidation" remover from Meguires for fiberglass boats and campers. Which I was told would work from the salesclerk. Although I did not feel comfortable with his answer. The other option is I have a pressure washer and would that work as well. (It would be a lot Quicker for sure.) But I am not sure it would be the correct way of doing it. I would NOT use it on the roof. Just the sides and front Cap. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

RE: No Bumper -- Where do you store the sewage hose?

We simply bought 2 sewer hose storage units and mounted one on each side underneath the 5'er. Hubby drilled a couple of holes so water can drain if needed. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!

RE: sat dish

We tried them ALL had a Tripod mounted dish, Had bought Wingard, and ended up with DISH Tailgater !! Always had problem getting the Tripod level then having to "aim" dish, not to mention storing the dish, and tripod when done. Never had any luck at all with wingard (Tried 2 different units). NEVER had a problem with the tailgaters, (we have 2 of them) We just put them on 2 small folding tables point the carry handles to the south and let them do their thing. Never had a problem with either one of them !! Good Luck and Happy Camping !!

RE: Tires

I second the vote Sailun's. We have had ours now for 2 years, when we wear these out will get them again. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!

RE: Mattress

There are several places on line that sell RV matreses, and will ship to your door. Just do a search for them. like the previous member stated, sounds like yours is a regular lenghth house one. We ordered one 2 years ago, put inside opened it up and was ready to go. To make sure you can measure the lenght and width you need before placing your order. Our unit came with a "King" but was too long for my wife to manuver around. I just trimmed off the extra base lenght with a jig saw and replaced with a Queen RV Short mattress. Good Luck and Happy Camping !!!
