    Changing Gray/Black Valves

    I had the same problem, and finally took it to a shop to have them do it.  I just couldn't get the pipes pulled far enough apart to get the gaskets in correctly.  the guy at the shop said sometimes the have to use a ratchet strap on one side of the valve to get them to spread out enough to fit...

    Best Older 5th Wheels??

    The older Holiday Ramblers were solid, well built 5th wheels but you would have to go back to the mid 90's before the company was sold and the construction went downhill.  They were aluminum sides and roof, and used aluminum framing instead of wood so less chance of major rot problems.  they...

    Trailer door doesn't open "flat"--by design

    32' 6300lb Trailer Towing issues

    I remember reading about people having some kind of handling problems with the Titan diesel.  I would look into that before making a decision.  but as others have said, if your first trailer is that big, i would consider getting a truck big enough to tow the NEXT trailer.  It's amazing how fast...

    Buying a Quality Used Travel Trailer or RV - Brand Recommendations

    If you don't mind going a few years older than 2000, I'd look at the Holiday Rambler 5th wheel trailers also.  I've met a few people with them and they seem to be a good solid trailer with an aluminum roof.  If you can find one in good shape now it should still be solid in 5 years.
