See, now THAT is clever right there!
I agree, a great idea, and a much better material than my collection of 2x4s. You could even use a mix of larger and smaller diameter pvc pipes so they can nest and take up less room.
. . . and you can use the pipes to store items during transport - rope, tent pegs, etc.
Images not showing, guess it's the new software.
Any chance you could repost them?
Truer words were never spoken. I have had multiple pups. Coleman/Fleetwood said to wait to put the stabilizers down until you have the roof up. My Palomino said to put them down and then put the roof up. Everyone had a different opinion. I don't know that there is a right or wrong answer.
I personally follow the Coleman method...
Like you say, different rules for different trailers and not sure either way will or will not cause a problem.
My Flagstaff owners manual and the dealer say to stabilize before raising the roof .
As for the roof collapse, this happened to me on the second or third camping trip with my 228BH. Happened when lowering the roof at the end of the trip. As soon as I hit the switch to lower, it slammed down and was due to a shattered gear in the winch motor.
I'd love to see a combination of the Coleman and Goshen lift systems.
I want the Goshen style pushed springs, but pushed by a threaded rod like the Coleman wiffle-tree. Better still use a recirculating ball system like old automotive steering gears to drive the plates insead of just a metal nut.
No cables to fail.
