  1. The DW and I are going to be starting our fulltime lifestyle here in a couple weeks. We are having and estate sate and putting the house up for sale on Sept 21. That is the day we are moving into our TT. We have been dreaming about the fulltime lifestyle but due to some things outside of our control we have the chance to do it now. We currently live in Western New York and plan on staying around here for as long as we can for doctors appointments and such. My question is we have a Jayco 245RLSW that we are starting out in and I am worried about freezing our water lines. If we keep the heat goi

    Hello! I am new to owning a "camper". I have always tent camped. I bought a new 2021 Jayco travel trailer. Single axle. I've been given lots of advice of do this or that. I feel like it sways alot. An experienced large camper owner agrees. However, I've also been told that my frame should not be drilled to connect anything to and that I do not need any kind of stabilizer bars for such a small trailer. Any advice here? I'd like to decrease the bunny hopping and sway and not compromise the integrity of the frame. Thanks!
  3. http:// located in North Carolina. FYI we will be traveling to Hutchinson, KS in October. $300 https://genyhitch.com/product/boss-torsion-flex-10k-drop-hitch/ I bought this hitch for our old travel trailer which we no longer have. We don’t have room and are selling many items. Much of the stuff for sale is on Facebook marketplace.
  4. We just bought a Ram 2500 diesel mega cab and are wanting to add a camper cap on the back for storage and the dog crate. We have a larger sized dog and she does not like to sit, just stand or lay. I don't think there is going to be enough room with the kids and her in the back seat for long drives. We will be towing a travel trailer. Our plan was to get a camper cap, have the truck window open into the cap so the cold air could get to her, maybe have a fan there to help draw the cold air in. I know people who have let them just free stand in the back (within the bed/cap), but I worry about acc
  5. Hi everyone! We just joined this group and are excited to be here. We are planning on going full time for a year starting in June 2020. We are stopping at Mt. Rushmore first, then Colorado, and over to Yellowstone area towards the end of July. I'm having a hard time picking a good site for a pull through (this is our first truck and first RV), with full hook ups (need electricity for remote work and kids), pet friendly for our dog (68 lb greyhound). Does anyone have RV parks/campgrounds near Yellowstone? Thank you! Sarah

  7. Recently I saw the question posted on facebook, "Can I install a household shower head in an RV" The answer of course is yes. they both use standard pipe fittings as well as the faucets in the kitchen and bathroom. I decided to get a shower head that is not labeled for RV use and see what happens. I was completely underwhelmed, it was just like I had put the factory shower head back on. So now I'm back in the comfort of my oxygenics. Check it out if you have some time!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXr6jFOMVVk
  8. So I'll be honest with y'all... I'm a newbie to RVing, a newbie to full-timing, AND even a newbie to towing a travel trailer (or towing anything at all really! yeah, I know, gasp!)... but I'll be doing ALL THREE in about 4 weeks. I went through RV Online University already, and I'm graduating from Escapees Bootcamp tomorrow at the Escapade in Sedalia, among other classes I've completed, so I think I've done as much video and word-of-mouth and classroom educating myself as I can at this point (and I do have an in-person driving class tentatively scheduled for my trailer pick-up date too).
  9. My husband and I are in the market for a travel trailer....this will be our first RV purchase EVER! We live in the chicagoland area and interested in hearing about some dealerships nearby (we are willing to drive a couple of hours). Most important is a reputable dealer with a decent service department. We are looking to purchase a travel trailer that is 30'-33' long with a decent bedroom (preferably a walk around bed) we do not like the bunk rooms nor do we need it...we would like to sleep 4-6, have a nice common area and an outdoor kitchen. Our price range is $20,000-$30,000. We
  10. Hi and thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions! My husband and I have a 22' travel trailer, 3200 lbs dry. I don't know the GVWR since it's a trailer from the 80s and I can't find this information about it (but I'm assuming 5000 might be a safe estimate?)! We're looking to buy a tow vehicle for it; this will be for full-timing in the trailer. We've already done a lot of research and read lots of opinions, but it seems like much of the advice is geared towards folks hauling larger trailers. We started out thinking about trying to tow with an SUV, but read some scary stories of
  11. Anyone else using Verizon Unlimited and liking it? Yeah it's not truly unlimited in every way, but it still is a home internet replacement for me without issue. I made this video in my apartment, but I am weekender currently when it comes to RVing, and am out every weekend primarily at the same campground, but out to different parts of the country around me regularly.
  12. Last week I saw the question asked on a Facebook group, “ How long does it take to pack up camp and leave?” I decided to film and time my tear down as I had to move anyway and these are my results. Some video got corrupted so I could not make the video I was hoping for so no need to watch the entire thing but if you do Thankyou!
  13. Here is a quick tip for winterizing that RV fridge if you have the same handles I do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kJ-1YfREYj4
  14. I recently installed two Battle Born lithium batteries and an Ames 2000 watt inverter charger into my travel trailer. Here is how it looks all finished up minus the parallel cables for the two batteries, Here is my real world usage for those batteries anybody else using these batteries, I am a big fan. I will no longer carry a generator 2-4 day boondocking trips.
  15. Temperatures are getting chilly overnight, I have a tip for those of us without heat pumps. This allows me to use electric heat and or catalytic heaters that sip propane to warm the entire coach.
  16. Hi everyone, After months of deliberating, we have finally settled on our next long-term rig. (We're in a "starter" rig right now that is not suited to full-time use). For a long time we have had our eyes on a toy hauler and a HDT truck to tow it. However, for various reasons, logistical and financial, we've elected to forego the toy hauler and get a large travel trailer. The rig we have our eye on is 37' 4" long and has a GVWR of 10,995 lbs. While I generally understand all the concepts behind the different weight ratings like GVWR, CVWR, curb weight, etc., I just don't fe
  17. My Hubby & I are both retired; we don't even have our rig yet. We own a 3/4 ton Diesel pick up. My husband has been an over-the-road driver in years past. We hope to be able to start with 90 days per year on the road and increase if we like it. So---we plan to purchase a travel trailer. we are looking at 1) 2003 --21 feet Komfort 2) 2006 Arctic Fox 3) 2004 Grand Surveyor-- What do you all think??

  19. Hi guys, we are new to RVing but are very enthusiastic. We are looking to buy our first RV and live in it full time. We heard people refer to it as “Full timing.” We’re hoping to get some tips from all the experienced folks out here and recommendations on selecting our first RV. At the moment, we don’t have a vehicle for the towing. To not be limited by the vehicle, we’re looking to decide on an RV and then buy the truck that best suit for towing it. After doing a research about the different options available, we came up with a list of features we need in an RV. RV requirements list:

  21. Howdy. I would like to start a topic for the smaller RVs - 25 foot and under. I know this is done in Aframes, Class B's and other mini RVs. These rigs do not give the space for storage, the larger holding tanks, etc. of the average RV "house" of many full time folks so I thought a place to share experiences and ideas might be nice. Hubby and I are hoping to be part of the mid-year 2017 grad class. We want small. The largest RV we've owned was a 24' Winnebago and never enjoyed driving that as much as towing our Aframe or driving our Class B. True, we were not full timing so small wasn

  23. Looking for advice from some folks with experience. My wife and I are preparing to go FT and I am struggling to decide between using our Excursion (7.3) and a TT or selling it to get a Crew Cab Truck and a 5th Wheel. Our situation: 4 young children (9, 5, 4, 2). Obviously the extra room in the Excursion would be a plus, but if we get a Crew Cab truck we could all fit...and my 9 year old would love riding in the front middle seat. The advantage of the Crew Cab would be the ability to pull a 5th wheel and feel more stable while driving and would give me the ability to tow a la

  25. My wife and I are looking to sell our house in Avondale, AZ and move into our 34ft Starcraft autumn ridge travel trailer. We want to simplify, getting away from hoa's, house and yard maintainer and to basically get rid of all the crap we have gathered over the years. I work in the north valley near 101 and i17. We could use some help finding a park that doesn't cost an arm and a leg maybe 20-30m north of work. Also, we have an 18mo old so any advise there. Thoughts recommendations appreciated. I am documenting our journey which is a huge step for my wife. Check us out to find out a
