A couple of us have used the Alaska Marine Highway ferries in the last few years.

We made several stops on our RV trip from Prince Rupert to Haines via Ketchikan, Wrangell, Juneau, and Skagway with a 41' motorhome and a tow car. IIRC our total fare including cabins three years ago was about $2800. We spent 3-4 days at each stop and had a great time enjoying the local activities.

Using Prince Rupert as the Southern Terminus makes the ferry trip much shorter and less expensive and the drive from Washington to Prince Rupert is on good roads with great scenery, especially from Prince Rupert to Prince George.

When I bought my 2014 Jeep Patriot I had no idea that I'd be getting a DP two years later - but after manhandling an F350 5-speed for years I'm so happy with the Jeep that I have no desire to part with it, so I happened upon an aluma trailer and that's what we pull the Jeep on.  With a 36' DP we don't really fit into most state/federal campgrounds here in the SW so I do careful research to ensure the CG has a 60' space or alternate trailer parking.  The combined wgt of the trailer + Jeep is just over 5K lbs and I haven't noticed any difference towing or not (I do keep an eye on it in the backup camera to ensure it's still following me).  Note:  I did put a ball hitch on the Jeep and move the trailer around with it (actually the trailer is light enough for my son to move it by hand, but at 73 that's not my game).  Do whatever you are comfortable with.

Happy Thanksgiving All,
We're considering a trip though British Columbia next year that would end in Skagway AK. We would then take the Alaska Ferry system back to Bellingham, WA. Has anyone ever done this with a fifth wheel and what costs (approximate) did you have putting the tow vehicle & fifth wheel on on board the Alaska Ferry?

I'll have an entry for George on our Memorial page shortly.

It's up.

A desktop publishing program I used to use is Pagestream. I've not needed it in years, but it was extremely flexible and powerful. The base version is $99, but they have a demo you can download for free, if you want to give it a shot. I actually started with it on the Amiga many years back, then when Amiga went to almost nothing, they ported it to Windows.

It was great for club newsletters, and most other things such as flyers and booklets -- I even created a parts catalog with it for a local company. I was even able to give camera-ready copy to the printing company.

Just another choice for you to think about.

That certainly doesn't sound right. I'd make an appointment with a Ram Promaster dealer and ask them to check it out. Transmission issues aren't the sort of thing a Winnie dealer can help with, and the chassis warranty is from Ram.

One of the reasons I went to a MH is to put trailers with those junk ST tires way out of my life.  With 4 down I can drive the speed limits and not worry so much about any "maypop's" in the back holding up my car.
Use LT truck tires and the problems go away. They can be bought in 15 and 16 in sizes.
