    Generator Noise

    And by no means am I saying that only seasoned campers can be grouchy! Maybe the complainer was a newbie and didn't like the fact he had to go camping instead of dangling his feet off a yacht in the Med off the coast of Greece! LOL!!

    Generator Noise

    We are new campers this year (long story short, international travel plans got squashed), so we redirected the funds into first time camping. While we have tried to be "good neighbors" during our trips (and we haven't seen it ourselves), it seems like some more seasoned campers have an...

    Lets Talk Tires...

    FYI - I just got three Goodyear Endurance ST225/75R15 to replace the OEM Castle Rock "China bombs" on a used TT we just bought. Bumped up from load range D (2540 lbs) to E (2830 lbs) and L speed rating (75MPH) to N (87MPH). Got them from a truck shop that I've dealt with for years for $143...

    Starting anew after a couple misfires

    Wish me luck again! The wife found a 2017 Coachmen Apex Nano 193BHS on Facebook marketplace and we go look at it tomorrow morning. Anything In particular to watch out for? We’re not buying tomorrow, just looking as the seller needs to finish up some banking to get title in hand yet...

    And I’m also seeing now that our Explorer is less than an ideal TV.

    Now I’m tracking! Thanks for the clarification. And yes, we definitely want to take it easy on the TV.

    Starting anew after a couple misfires

    Sorry, should have been more clear. Looking at what we can tow with our TV. With WDH, it's rated 500/5000 (tongue/GVWR). With recommendations here (and in similar TV posts) being in the 37-3800 range, is that based on GVWR? If so, we need to limit our shopping further. We've been looking at...

    Starting anew after a couple misfires

    Quick question on the weight recommendation. From what I gather in replies here, as well as some other TV posts, I should stay below about 37-3800#. Is this total GVWR or UVW/Dry? Wife and I have been looking at some new ones (Forest River Wolf Pups, FSX, others) and most UVW/Dry are...

    Starting anew after a couple misfires

    @firepit, I showed the wife and she absolutely loved the retro look! @Sotovoce, now I'm adding hammocks to the list- awesome! (And I'm sure there's tons of other tips/tricks I'm not thinking about. But I have a that list started now - including a piece of outdoor carpet for the patio area!)...

    Thank you all for the incredible insights and advice! Hadn’t even thought about carrying a tent for the boys - great idea!

    Starting anew after a couple misfires

    Good afternoon, As I said in my thread from yesterday, the wife and I bought a used 1999 Coleman/Fleetwood Mesa PUP several years ago, and had to sell before using it. The one we looked at last night (a 2006 Starcraft Antigua 195CK Hybrid) turned out to be a fixer upper for $5,500... So...

    Newbie, wish me luck!

    Well shoot... Plastics were cracked/broken/missing (speaker covers, cover plates inside, bath vent popup gone, shower skylight looked rough), ceiling had soft spots/bubbles, newer vinyl flooring laid down on top of old, soft floor from kitchen all the way to front... Hard pass, but we're still...

    Newbie, wish me luck!

    Hi all! I joined here several years ago when the wife and I bought a used 1999 Coleman/Fleetwood Mesa PUP. Lurked for a few weeks, but then circumstances changed and we had to sell almost immediately so I never got to post anything. Fast forward to yesterday and we spotted a 2006 Starcraft...
