    Carrying a kayak

    We also use the TV to haul the kayaks (16 and 16.5 ft). We have used J-hooks, regular saddles and have Hullavators. Using the J-hooks you add height to the roof line i.e. it can be a giant sail and have a negative effect on both mileage and handling. Plus it can be a workout to lift the boat...

    Why Do you Go To RV Shows?

    It's 'date night' for us. We enjoy looking at new units and people watching. We did not go last year and only once so far this year, and on the first day early, so very low attendance and no crowds. Going to try the Novi show again this year, weather and the DW work schedule permitting us to...

    Drill to crank up Poppy - best for torque?

    Yes torque is important, 400+ inch/lbs and getting a drill with metal gears is also very important, because torque. I used a Milwaukee M18 drill on the Bayside for the roof (w/AC) and the stabs. Always worked well. Do not use an impact driver as that can destroy the lift system (bang bang...

    2000 Utah: buying add a room

    "the awning is about 11’ that it’s actually a 12’ awning and I need a 12’ add a room kit." That is true. But the awning is called 12' so a 12' screen room (or Add A Room*) would work "If yours is a diffrent camper, that skirt peice probably will not fit." My skirt was such a PITA we would use a...

    2000 Utah: buying add a room
