RE: Need Audio advice for my build

Need Audio advice for my build

Im looking for suggestions for my audio system inside my 26' enclosed trailer/toy hauler conversion. I will be travelling to both boon-docking and full hookup campsites. I will require a dvd/br player, bluetooth and android capable smart receiver either compact size maybe even a car touchscreen deck and amp Powered or passive small bookshelf or mini satellite speakers. Any suggestions on systems or components? I will be without internet or cell service maybe 20% of the time.

RE: My toy hauler build ..novice..be gentle please

Im trying to get some pictures organized. I have a tendency to plan then buy things when I see a good value. Problem is now I'm having to squeeze around all the things I have bought. LOL

I am installing this in my car hauler / toy hauler conversion. If I can run it on 220/240 I believe it will be more efficient.

RE: Best tankless water heaters (LP) 2.5gph or higher

If you use a tankless water heater is it best to have it placed very near the shower?

Best tankless water heaters (LP) 2.5gph or higher

Getting to the point I need to decide how Im going to heat my water in the toy hauler. I was pretty set on tankless but if they are just a huge hassle I can use conventional. What is your opinion?

RE: Why not forget holding tanks and just use portable tanks?

How about a real idea? If you have enough height inside your trailer perhaps consider building a subfloor on top of the existing floor. Sort of like 5th wheel trailers have a "basement" which is where their tanks are put. Typically most RV tanks are 7 inches or a bit less tall so you could easily make a new floor around 7" higher for the bathroom only or the entire living space. This would also give you a chase for other plumbing and electrical items. Setup your layout correctly and you could make the tanks go under kitchen or even beds so your raised floor may not need to be the entire living space. This is a possibility as I have 7'6" ceiling height. Great idea.

What tracking anti theft device to buy and monthly fees

Wanting to purchase an anti theft tracking device to hide in my toy hauler. What models do you recommend and which ones have the lowest monthly service? Thanks, Rick

Why not forget holding tanks and just use portable tanks?

I have an all aluminum trailer that I am turning into a toy hauler. The floor framing is 12" on center and I beam construction. This only leaves 8-9" width to fit the tanks in between the rails. For any kind of volume the tank would have to be quite tall. I do not want my storage tanks 7" from the road for obvious reasons. So...... Is it just craziness to think about running the drains to the waste valves and straight into those portable tanks you can roll to the dump station? I realize I would need one for grey and one for the black tank. What am I missing in this process? Or is it feasible and been done before? Thanks, Rick

Advice for my car trailer/toy hauler conversion plan

Hello again everyone. My intent is to turn a well built trailer into a well built toy hauler. I am just about ready to pull the trigger on my car trailer purchase and I figured why not post my current plans and maybe glean some wisdom from those that already have experience. This is a short list of my thoughts. 1. 8.5' x 24' x 7'6" V nose all aluminum car trailer either R&R or Neon brand 2. garage area must be 11' long for UTV 3. Garage area to have drop down full or queen bed. 4. 32"x32" inside shower 5. Flush toilet and vanity in bathroom 6. 4-6 cu ft fridge 7. 13.5 roof a/c 8. on demand water heater 9. most mechanical and electrical items will be in 5' V-nose with entry door in V. 10. 30-40 gallon fresh water tank 11. 30 gallon gray 25 gallon black. 12. Microwave and countertop toaster oven and burners. 13. two exhaust fans
