  1. I don't know all the particulars of the campgrounds. I know there was a fire in Jasper and one of the bigger campgrounds still might be closed? I just know you have to be ready to reserve on the those dates I am looking for particulars
  2. Hello, My puppy and I be going to the Canadian Rockies this Summer. I already have my passport. I have all the proof of vaccinations for my pup but I think they all need to be within 6 months of when you visit Canada? I want to visit Waterton, Banff and Jasper National Parks and/or any other areas that offer great hiking This year, it will be around Jan. 9th for Jasper National Park, and Jan. 10th for Banff National Park so I need to make reservations soon! Looking for suggestions for camping and any other advise for visiting Canada Thanks! Joan & Miss Emme Lu Who Facebo
  3. Yes. The company is relatively new started by former executives from Keystone. They have a good reputation. I know a gal who has their TT called "Imagine" 2650MK (the company's lightweight TT) very nice interior and she has no problems except for an imbalance in one of the slides that the dealer took care of with no problems. I would look at one although I would look at insulation and weight since its a "Lightweight" And as I recall the CCC was low for the size
  4. Error You are not authorised to view this resource. skp#? Is that my Member#? If not I do not have a SKP# as I thought those were groups or the Escapees parks? Please explain..Thanks
  5. I just saw my first Japanese Chin in the campground I am in now in Texas. Darling dogs!
  6. I have been full timing for three years in a 2005 20ft Sunline. I am sure it was never meant to be a full time rig but it has been remarkably trouble free except for the usual minor things. Personally I like the older rigs, I think they were better made. I would look at older Artic Fox, Nash and I love the Bigfoot. Older Holiday Ramblers also. Older Komforts made by Komfort before being acquired by Dutchman. The Escape and Olivers are wonderful too but quite small
  7. Hello, I am currently in Lajitas, Texas but plan on going up to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington this coming late Spring/Summer. Since I have never been there I would appreciate suggestions for campgrounds, full hooks or not. I have a small TT with small holding tanks so the longest I could do without full hook ups is 6-7 days. Thanks! Joan
  8. Yes I agree. I really do not consider the light weights a good choice for full timing I did not know that KZ was bought out by Thor although apparently they went to a Lippert frame in 2010 and I have concerns with them, weld failures. I do prefer wood framed as they are better insulators, do not sweat and are easier to repair. Of course they are heavier soooooo I am coming to the realization that I probably will not be able to find a wood framed fifth that I can safely pull and need to look at trailers I called Northwood and was told that all Nash products are still wood framed A
  9. Oh that's great, thanks! I have started looking to find small 5ers that I could pull safely made with quality and I found this one made by KZ. http://www.rvt.com/KZ-Sportsmen-235-FRONT-TWINS-2008-Houghton-Lake-MI-ID6179522-UX68852 I have heard of them but do not know much about them. However, my initial research is that owners like them and they report a well built product. I did find that they went to Lippert frames in 2010 so I would look for one made prior to 2010
  10. Yup, with a 4:10 it would be a higher weight However, even though I am disappointed I have no intention of trying to exceed the correct weight I want to be safe, not sorry Thanks!
  11. I certainly appreciate the information! According to the Chevy Forum VIN # Check my truck IS a HD and the axle is 3.73 The front axle capacity is 3800 The rear axle capacity is 6000 The CAT scale weight of my fully loaded truck is; Steer axle 3480 Drive axle 2900 Gross Weight 6380 Thanks!
  12. I wish I was wrong but got numbers off manufacturers labels on the truck Combined gross weight was from running my VIN # at a Chevy Forum (which provided a bunch of other info on my truck too). I weighed the truck twice at the CAT scales just to make sure it was weighed with me in it as I had to get out to press the call button
  13. That looks interesting but slightly over $1,000 Apparently most people do pull over weight. The gentleman whom I bought the truck from had a big fifth wheel. The gentleman last night who said he would not hesitate to pull a 30ft fifth wheel with because he did! He reasoned that because the weight of a fifth wheel is over a axle that you could pull more than with a bumper pull!
  14. It's just hard to accept that a 2500 diesel can only pull less than 6,620 lbs That really crimps my shopping! I was focusing on 5ers since everyone has told me how much better they pull and how much easier they are to maneuver and back up than a trailer. Specifically Arctic Fox or a (Triple E Topaz if I could find one)but apparently those are out of the question, even a 23-5N if I could even find one since Northwood isn't making them anymore. The only Arctic Fox trailer I could pull is 22 model but not much bigger than my current rig. I had a gentleman tell me just tonight
  15. The run away truck ramps. Saw them when I went through the Teton Pass. It was a white knuckle drive and I wasn't pulling!
