  1. After having issues with our 5th wheel contacting our trailer we starting looking into all options. The Andersen Ultimate Connection kept catching our eye, this hitch is lighter and stronger than ever! Weighing in at 35 lbs it makes the removal process simple and helps with our payload. With this installation I filmed as much detail as I could while also getting the job done. This hitch helps solve the problem short bed truck owners face, the base pushes the hitching point back 4 inches. Then when you install the coupler depending on your setup and configuration you can gain another 4 inches. We gained 8 inches of clearance, and that has been enough for us. Towing has been great! Let us know your thoughts!
  2. In this video we show you how we converted our standard toy hauler ramp door into a patio/porch. Many of these ramp's come like this from the factory but our 2017 Keystone Carbon did not have that option. So we decided to add it ourselves. We are by no means professionals, this is just a simple way we converted our toy hauler ramp into a patio. Now we have a dual purpose ramp, we can load up our toys and then set it into patio mode. Make sure you use hardware strong enough for you exact trailer and configuration. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sChWxAt2mLY
  3. ✶✶✶IN THIS VIDEO✶✶✶ Well we got a new trailer and it's very large. Our first shake down trip didn't go quite as planned, we had many problems. We don't let that get us down, in Big Bear California for the weekend with friends. We do some boondocking near Big Bear. While we are in the area we head over to the Alpine Zoo! They help rehab injured animals and give homes to orphaned one's. 90% of the animals brought in are released back into their natural habitats. We also take some time to visit with a good friend that moved into the area many years ago. He bought a house and has been living his dream, fishing, hunting and snowboarding. Hope you enjoy the video, let us know your thoughts on the new rig and the problems that we encounter.
  4. We do a walk through of the Keystone Carbon 364 Toy Hauler (38' 3 slides). This is pretty significant for us because we have been looking into a new rig for awhile. There have been a few issues that have been adding up with our 2015 Keystone Cougar 313 ril and we thought our stay in our home town of Simi Valley would be a great time to take a look at new rigs. Here's a list of the issues we are having with our current rig. 1. Separate office space. 2. on board generator. 3. Fresh water capacity. 4. Good storage area for our bikes. 5. A place for quests to stay when visiting. 6.Being able to easily walk around the bed. There are a few others things that we have considered also, this is just a walk through. When RVing full-time smaller problems often seem as larger ones, so we figured we should address them as soon as possible. Also buying your first rig is extremely stressful and you can never find everything you want. Hope you enjoy the video!
  5. Is anyone in this group living full-time in a Toy Hauler? My wife and I have just started the planning to move to full-time in about a year. we are looking at trailers, and trucks to pull. Looking for some like minded people with experience to have conversations with on what they wished they knew before they sold the house and pulled out. Our goal is to full time for a year, looking for a new place to set down roots, then buy a new piece of property as a home base. We are looking at "Fuzion", but interested in peoples experiences with other brands as well. What do you wish you knew before you started.?
  6. Greetings all, Looking for any gently used Grand Design Momentum or Heartland Road Warrior toy haulers. Would also consider other models depending on the layout. Some of our requirements: Bigger the garage, the better Must have arctic/cold weather package Must be 100% leak/water damage free Must be a 2014 model year or newer We haven't made up our mind on a tow vehicle yet, but we need one of those, too! We're leaning heavily toward a HDT (Volvo 630 or 730), but would be interested in any smaller trucks from F350s on up to MDTs. Shoot me a private message if you or someone you know has any of these items and is interested in making a deal. Thanks!
  7. This 40ft fifth wheel toy hauler has a large open floor plan, large windows, and lots of space. It is in great shape, and has new vinyl wood plank flooring throughout.

  8. We are considering using a HappiJac system in a toy hauler as a flexible option for extra beds (2 bunk queen beds) and 2 couch seating area (converted from a bed) in the garage. Have not found any feedback on the forum but have had a couple of people tell me they loved them or they were a waste of space. Looking for personal use experiences in a toy hauler "garage". How useful? How often used? Reliable? Any headroom issues getting SxS into the garage with a HappiJac. etc.
  9. $71,300 OBO or TRADE (Trade details below) We bought this 2012 Thor Outlaw Class A motorhome (Model #3611) this past March (2017) and drove it 997 miles back from Texas to KY. It runs perfectly, and we did not have a single problem driving it back from TX. Wife is 5'4" and she drove half the way, no problems -- so if your wife can't drive one of these, well....., I'm just sayin'. Sure enough, we have not used it since March, except to get it inspected, get the grey/black water tanks dumped, and gas it up. I have cranked it up ever other week to run the generator and the engine, lower and raise it off the jacks, and go through the gears. I don’t think we will ever make the grand deluxe trip around the States like I previously imagined. So now, we’re looking to sell it and pass it to someone who will actually drive it around. It has a clear KY title in my possession. It was built on the Ford F53 chassis, which has the Ford Triton V-10 engine, 5 speed automatic transmission with overdrive, 4 wheel disc brakes, etc. It is just over 37ft long and has its own garage INSIDE THE COACH that is 121" long (10ft). Our SMART car fits right in, as do Harley's and trikes, and CanAms, etc No more towing a car and getting stuck where you can't turn around with the trailer. OR, you can tow an additional trailer (with another car or enclosed trailer with merchandise) -- say, if you travelled around to flea markets, etc. It even has its own gas station with pump, hose and nozzle. You can refuel your car, bikes, ATVs without having to siphon or carry gas cans. It has about 21,460 total miles (as of 8JUL17) -- and it is obvious that it was very well maintained prior to us. There is a 4 year complete powertrain and coach warranty (by Cornerstone RV) that is transferable (good until March 2021) -- covers just about EVERYTHING inside and outside, except items requiring usual maintenance, like filters, tires, THERE ARE NO LEAKS! It has sat in the driveway and no problems have been detected. All routine maintenance has been performed, including wipers, lubricating stuck storage door locks, antifreeze change out, etc. We changed the oil and filter in the engine and generator (using Castrol Edge Synthetic oil) just before we drove the RV home to KY -- so about 1000 miles ago. NOTE: The roof over the front cab has been prepped for a re-spray, which will be performed within a few days (old clearcoat had peeled away). Do your homework on these toy-hauler Class A’s; Email us for further or full details and pix. BUT, please don’t make me into a Thor Outlaw salesman – i.e., don’t make me spend 4 hours telling you all the features of the motorhome that you can find on-line. I have done this now 3 times for people, and I do not want to flush away my time anymore doing the salesman job. TRADES? We might be open to trades or trades plus cash, such as: land (not "beachfront in FL"), Bentley GT, other exotic car (but, please, no K-cars or even run-of-the-mill cars)(we already have 2 Porsches and a Jag that get no road time). We live in Shepherdsville, KY, adjacent to Louisville. Thanks for looking. Steve & Sonia (and Zorro, Sheba, and Cassius) CP 410-349-7576 (Please, no calls after 8PM Eastern time)
  10. Not mine, Seen on Craigslist. $15650 Toy Hauler Fifth Wheel http://greensboro.craigslist.org/rvs/6076153282.html?lang=en&cc=us
  11. Hi, I'm searching for a winter-proof toy hauler. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. We are new full-timers and we love winter. During the summer our 25' Class B is fine. But now we are winter camping and we need more LP storage, insulation, and indoor room for our bikes. My wish list includes: 1. Enclosed, insulated, and heated holding tanks 2. Lots of LP (currently we have only 17# capacity (!)) 3. Separate garage for all of our gear. Bicycles, skis, SUP, kayak, paddles, etc. 4. I'd love a fiberglass roof 5. The shorter the better. I don't want to go from 25' to 45'. I still want to be as nimble as possible. 6. Durability is important So far KZ looks the best. Arctic Fox doesn't have a toy 5er--just bumper pulls. Winnebago is not very insulated. Excel wild cargo is out of business. Can anyone point me towards other good brands or models? Thanks so much!!!
  12. Any ideas of where to advertise my trailer? At 53' long and 27,500#s dry it should be towed by a HDT.

  13. BTW...Talking about projects that we REALLy don't need, but make life SOOO much better! How about a winch to assist the raising of the loading ramp on my toy hauler. Did this project last night and finished it this AM. Wrote an article about it on my web site: http://rvbprecision.com/rv-projects/toy-hauler-ramp-lift-assist.html And here is a video of it in operation: Ah...My back feels better all ready!

  15. DH and I are looking 5th Toy Haulers to go full timing in. We currently have two full dresser Harley Davidson motorcycle and I have a couple of questions that I am hoping you can answer. 1) What is your Toy Hauler, your tow vehicle and how long is your garage? 2) Do you garage your MC every night or leave them parked outside the trailer? 3) How difficult is it to back your motorcycle down the ramp? 4) How does the weight behind the axles affect the towing significantly? 5) What do you like best about your Toy Hauler, desperately wish you could change? 6) What is the rating on the tires? Thank you.

  18. Another winning day!!! Loaded the new-to-us Smart into the garage of our Toy Hauler this afternoon. Did it by myself, didn't have to fiddle with the deck angle (up in front, down in back) for the trailer, and had no issues with power to get up the incline. One step at a time...
  19. Like many of you, I'm not a "Full Timer". I still own a house and a yard and a bunch of stuff! But I plan to work out of my Toy Hauler this spring and summer as my business has me traveling all over the country. Why not work in a different area each week? This entails being able to connect to the internet and access to WiFi when it is available and of good quality. The search led me to TechnoRV.com. After reading a million articles on WiFi extenders, I realized that getting good, fast WiFi in most areas will be a bonus and a HotSpot will usually be a better way to access the internet. With this in mind I didn't want to spend a ton of dough on a WiFi repeater system. I opted for the "External WiFi Booster Tube" antenna and the "ALFA R36 Repeater" http://www.technorv.com/RV_WiFi_Boosters_s/85.htm I ordered the equipment on Tuesday and it was here at my house on Friday. Eric Johnson, the owner of TechnoRv was a great help in selecting the equipment and offered a free shipping incentive. I went with TechnoRV because I'm all thumbs when it comes to IT stuff. I barely can do email.....I need to call one of my 12 year old grandkids to get me out of Ethernet predicaments I get myself into. If you buy the product from TechnoRV, they email you something they call "TechnoRV Learning Series" once to pay for the product. These are fantastic tutorials that even I could understand! So anyways...How does it work? Well, it's 32 degrees right now and the Forest River 19RR is under wraps so I can't install the system on the trailer. But I had to check it out. I simply plugged the antenna into the repeater with the supplied USB cable (USB means no loss that a coax connection would have and much less chance of RF interference) , plugged the repeater into a wall socket with the included power supply (The repeater runs on 12v DC so in the camper it can run off my batteries as I do 85% boondocking). I simply left the repeater on the floor next to my desk in my office and stretched out the USB cable and mounted the antenna in the window of my wifes bathroom I followed the instructions from the "Learning Series" and I was actually up and running in ten minutes! I couldn't believe it was this easy! I've NEVER hooked anything up to my computer that worked the first time and didn't need at least two stiff drinks! This time I was up and running with out a lick of liquor.......Bummer! I live out in the country with very few houses and zero businesses within a couple miles of me. With the WiFi on my MacBook Air and my Iphone5s I can only pick up my own router and the Xfinity WiFi from my cable TV router......That's it! But as you can see from this screen shot, I've got WiFi coming in from all over the place. I can identify at least one and it is about a 1/4 mile away! As I was warned, you don't find many "Open" WiFi points. Si I'm hoping this will work well when parked near a Lowes, HomeDepot, McDonalds etc which offer open WiFi. We'll see! But so far, for the money spent, I'm really impressed! I also bought a WeBOOST Drive4G-M that I'll report on at another time. I hope this helps some other RVers if they are thinking about adding a WiFi repeater to their bag of technology tricks!
  20. My wife and I are about to begin a new career as catastrophic insurance adjusters and will possibly be on the road for 6-8 mos at a time. She wants a new 44ft toy hauler and I am leaning toward a smaller used 5th wheel until we see if staying in a rv is at all what we want. I have pulled bumper trailers all my life, but know nothing about 5th wheel adventures. Any input would be appreciated. Scott

  23. Happy Sunday Everyone, DH and I are still looking for our full-time toy hauler and came across the DRV FullHouse on the web. We walked through a used DRV Mobile Suites at PPL yesterday and liked what we saw. Questions: 1) If you have a DRV product - do you like the quality? How is the company to work with on warranty issues? 2) How are they to pull and what size truck are you pulling it with? 3) How is the ramp for loading and unloading heavy touring bikes? Will it need to be reinforced? 4) Have not been able to find a spec sheet on these? Any suggestions on where to look? Thanks for all your help.
