    Tired of hybrid owner friends cutting down our PUP

    A tt or hybrid an upgrade ? I think not ! Less room,more weight and wind resistance, been there done that. A hybrid is a lateral move at best and a tt is backward in my opinion. I've had 8' pup,12',Toyota and Chevrolet based class c's, 27' and 31' 5ers and the 12' pup is the one I prefer. If...

    Need Tandem Towing advise........

    Essentially you're going to need to build or buy a "toad" and put a hitch on the back of the boat trailer. In many states double RV's are legal ONLY when the front is a 5th wheel. The "toad" creates that type of situation. Think Outside ! ...No Box Required

    Add on slide out.

    I never did it but actually planned it out. I was not going to do the dinette, just the galley. For that project I was going to use 2 pair of 150lb full extension drawer slides and turn my galley into a big drawer that goes out. Think Outside ! ...No Box Required

    Why not replace a $90 goshen winch with a $65 Dutton-Lainson winch

    If you have a power lift from the factory it will already have limit switches installed on the main cable. No reason I can think of not to use a different winch. Think Outside ! ...No Box Required

    my pup wont crank up???

    Never ever ever use a regular eye bolt (even if you weld it closed) or bolt type cable clamps in ANY situation where lifting is involved...they WILL fail and you or someone you love may pay a horrible price so you could save $50.

    installing new slide rails on a 96 coleman santa fe pop up camper

    Pretty much all Coleman's have the same slide system(with the exception of the 80's extend-a-bed) the procedure should be the same for all of them. The biggest problem will be finding replacements. Think Outside ! ...No Box Required
