RE: Rear window exploded!

Wow, a couple good reasons how it could have happened. Yes, the shade was down and yes, this was the first trip towing the trailer with new tires. After 2 flats with the original China Pops I replaced them with LT truck tires and they do have an aggressive tread. Next stop, the glass shop. Now if I could just quit getting stuck with the darn thing. It is NOT a 4X4 Truck Camper like I had all my life!! $30K for a 4X4 conversion or $200 for traction panels. Guess which one DW says I can have!!! Thanks guys, this forum rocks!!

Rear window exploded!

I don't know why it happened. Going down the freeway at 65 mph and the rear window shattered. I was towing a 12' enclosed trailer with V nose as I have many times before. I had the dash vents open for cool air. I can't see anyway a rock could have hit it. Anyway I need to think how to repair it. 2017 22' Gulfstream Conquest. This is also the emergency exit so I want that part to keep functioning. I don't want to replace it with glass and go through this again. I was thinking along the lines of sheet metal or fiberglass panel cut to fit in the window frame. This would retain the emergency exit as well as the window screen. Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, DJ

RE: Switching to Class C

We just placed our order for a Phoenix Cruiser 2351DPhoenix Cruiser 2351D. It is 26 ft. Right in the middle of you preferences. Queen bed on the rear slide & we ordered the dinette. On a Ford E450 so towing shouldn't be an issue. We really like the company, their products, service and the ability to customize the coach to your wants. Not the cheapest on the market, but the best (in our opinion). Sweet. You're going to get a lot better MPG than me with it so streamlined. The E 450/V10 is a great way to go. I looked up the specs and it looks like you will have the typical 7500# tow rating. Congrats!!

RE: Switching to Class C

Long time truck camper. Still my favorite but getting too old for all the loading requirements i.e. removing/storing tailgate, installing 4' dual truss stinger for boat, etc. Then we tried travel trailers for a few years. I refuse to camp in trailer parks (too noisy/busy) and I had to cross some of my favorite boon docking sites off the list (too long). This year we bought a very gently used Class C from my friend. 2017 22' Conquest on a Ford E 450 with 6.8 V 10 with 10K miles. Could not be happier. Goes anywhere my truck camper could unless clearance problems. 7500# tow rating but no need for a toad. This could actually be a daily driver. And I could always throw my MC on the back. Yes it's small compared to a 30' TT. But everything is relative. It's a castle with tons of storage compared to a TC. Nothing can beat the "jump in, stop at grocery store and hit the road" factor with no hooking up or loading!! Plus, no more lifting/lugging propane tanks around!!
