RE: Looking into getting first TT

Previous posters are correct. If you want a 3 row SUV, get a popup trailer (sleeps 6 easily enough) or a hybrid (pop-out bunks). Keep in mind that the goal is to get out there and enjoy the outdoors together as a family; anything that enables you to do that will let you build the memories. Even a whopping big tent will do that. Think of whatever you pick out as, primarily, a bedroom on wheels. If you're looking for a complete house away from home, you are likely to be disappointed no matter what you buy, because (1) the quality isn't there and (2) it's going to be crowded as heck inside that trailer.

RE: Oregon to charge 25% more for out of state RV campers

I would love for Wisconsin to start charging more for out of state campers. I don't think it would deter any of them from coming here. Raise out of state 25% and leave resident fees the same. Half of the time we go into the parks near us on the weekend, we can't get a parking spot because the park is full of Illinois people. Raise their fees for entrance and camping. Use the extra money to build more campgrounds. :E Raise WI state park rates for out of staters? I already avoid WI state parks; between the entrance fee and the camping fee, it's too high for me as it is. When I camp in WI it's at an inexpensive spot, like a municipal CG. Last time I visited a WI state park (Peninsula), I parked outside the entrance and bicycled through the gate for free. ;)

RE: 12 volt DC Kuerig Mini

It's a nice feeling when you can take a malfunctioning appliance and convert it to usefulness again. Good for you! But, yep, 50 ways coming up next... ;) Folks love talking about their coffee brewing methods almost as much as they love drinking it. You'd think it was beer or something... :D

RE: Lithium cost keep dropping!

That would be one of the few things that is dropping in price these days.

RE: Little Guy Xtreme mini max tour

For a single traveler it might be possible to leave a bed made up in the very back and still retain a dinette sitting area just forward of it. I can hardly imagine a couple using this, though. Unless they are honeymooning, perhaps? ;)

RE: Frustrating !!!

Yep, once it is out of your hands, it's best to forget about it and let the new owners do what they will. Because they will do whatever they have a mind to do and nothing you say or do will change them. I frequently contemplate buying a steel cargo trailer with no roof vent and no rear door, and building it out as a TT. I could have a vent on the rear wall and a mini split A/C. Order the trailer with some steel attachment points welded to the roof, and mount solar panels up there without having to puncture the roof.

RE: Help buying a small travel trailer

Have you looked at Taylor Coach? They'll build custom (but you'd have to wait for it) and their units are relatively light weight.

RE: Spotted a new design for a TH - Wow, Beauty!!!

What a beauty! It sure puts that neighboring Avion (or Airstream?) to shame, eh? :D

RE: Wanted - Fresh Water Hose for "Olds"

You could get the hose with the large-grip female end, and on the male end you can add a shutoff valve. Once you've screwed it tight to the hose one time with a wrench, the valve handle will give you plenty of purchase for turning by hand from then on. https://i.imgur.com/daEXP8Hl.jpg

RE: Does Consumer Cellular include a hot spot?

I think hotspots are specific to the brand/model of phone. My Samsung A01, purchased from CC a couple months ago as a replacement for an older Sony phone, does have the hotspot feature. My previous phone was a Sony, provided by me (CC didn't offer Sonys). Buying a phone elsewhere is an option so long as it's ATT compatible, but it does take a little extra to set up the phone properly (CC sets up ahead of time the phones they sell and ship). I couldn't figure out how to make my Sony work until I wrote to CC and they sent me instructions on what I had to change or enter at certain key places.

RE: Fiberglass polishing

After washing thoroughly, applying a couple coats of Zep floor wax will make it shine like new.

RE: Scary moment towing my 5er around Denver last week

My dash cam comes on when the truck starts, and when the memory gets full, it overwrites the oldest image. That's how most work. Easy to install as long as you can find a keyed 12v source close enough to the dash cam. or, some come with cigarette lighter adapter. MikeThanks!

RE: Porsche as a tow vehicle? Depends on the trailer . . .

I personally wouldn't tow anything longer than about 22'-23' with a Cayenne. And I'd want a WD hitch with built-in sway control for a TT that long.

RE: Scary moment towing my 5er around Denver last week

How do these dash cams function? Do they turn on/off automatically with the ignition switch, or does one have to remember to start them? What happens when the memory gets full? Are they affordable or expensive? Easy to install or difficult?

Good alertness and maneuvering on your part.

RE: Tent Trailer Set Up Question

If you really feel the need for soft, canvas-like sides but don't want the pullouts, you might look for a used Palomino Basecamp 14ULC. No wet bath though, just a toilet. If you just want something smaller, maybe you'd like an Escape (factory direct from Chilliwack BC) or Scamp or Casita.

RE: Towing with 2004 Lincoln Aviator

You should be okay, but you'll have to get used to the slower acceleration. Lock out overdrive to prevent transmission damage from heat buildup in the unlocked torque converter. You can downshift further on steep hills and let the engine rev higher to apply more torque; it's noisy but the engine is made to take it. Do pay attention to the hitch weight so you don't exceed the hitch's rating.

RE: Temptation to Buy a Chromebook

I prefer to have my files reside on my own drives, so I'm not keen on Chromebooks with their cloud storage 'solution.' If you just want a new challenge, why not study up and create a dual-boot system on your laptop with Linux Mint? That's what I did. It wasn't easy to figure out, but once I accomplished the goal, it was a satisfying feeling.
