RE: A tale of two trailers, or prices are thru the roof.

Just for S&G's we looked at a new trailer. And laughed. There's nothing wrong with our 2017, and I'm so glad I bought my F250 in 2019.

RE: First RV Grand Design vs Keystone cougar

Four years ago we traded our Heartland on a Grand Design and never looked back. Earlier this summer we did a 42 night, 6,000 mile road trip in it.

RE: trailer saved the day

We used the kitchen in the trailer while the one in our house was being remodeled.

RE: 08 [email protected] with AL-KO axle needs brake shoes

Eons ago my dad found a local clutch & brake relining shop to reline the brake shoes on our old pop-up.

RE: Sending a TT back to the factory

Grand Design has a factory service center but the backup is several months.

RE: Wastewater Tote & Fresh Water Containers - Do you use them?

My "tote" is a 30 gallon plastic drum strapped in the truck bed. It's filled with a macerator pump and emptied by an 1-1/2" sump pump discharge hose and ball valve. I have a 20 gallon fresh water tank on a stand also strapped in the bed. It's high enough that it gravity feeds into the trailer tank. I also have a 6 gallon jug.

RE: Grand Design Travel Trailer RV Transcend Xplor 240ML

There are several GD Facebook pages too. Ask there.

RE: Are you heading for Utah's National Parks?

We did Arches, Zion, Canyonlands, and Bryce in May, and people were being turned away at Arches then. We would get up at 5:00AM to beat the crowds and get our hiking in before it got hot and crowded.

RE: 12 volt only refrigerator

Some new Grand Designs (Transcend?) come with 12V compressor fridges but also have a 165W solar panel on the roof.

RE: Opinion on Weights

20# is the scale resolution. Don't sweat the small stuff.

RE: CAT Scale Weights

Ford says to split the difference on the front axle between the unloaded weight (3720#) and weight with the trailer w/o the bars hooked up (3380#). At 3500# with the bars hooked up you're close enough.

RE: Tow Vehicle Spare - Have you checked it?

I used to work in a tire shop. If we weren't busy I'd check a customer's spare air pressure when they got tires. And +1 on lubing the cables, more than once I had to point out to the customer that the cable had broken (rusted) and they had lost their spare tire.

RE: Ideas to carry spare and bikes

I used a BAL Hide a Spare, it's just behind the rear axle. No issues to date.

RE: Rear Kitchen - good idea or bad idea?

The only issue we had was a 1/8" thick drawer bottom broke from having a 12" cast iron skillet in it. I replaced it with 1/4" plywood.

RE: 1/2 Ton Limit

Sheesh, I'd have no issues running an Imagine 2600 and maybe a 2670 trailer with that truck, and I'm usually not a proponent of half-ton towing.

RE: Converter replacement

I have an IOTA-55 and routinely use my Honda 2000 for charging chores.

RE: Road way and Elevation issues while traveling

Good Sam trip planner or RV Trip Wizard. On my Garmin GPS you can select "RV" and input your length, height, width, and weight. Good Sam will route you around propane restrictions, Google won't.

RE: Grand design and towing with a Ford Expidition

GD's tongue weights are for a totally empty trailer, no batteries, no propane tanks. Yeah, I'd guess all-up tongue weight would be 800#+. You may want to consider a Pro Pride hitch also, it seems to be the up and coming favorite.

RE: Looking for an electrician to answer a question for me

I use my Honda 2000 to power the house if needed. It'll run 2 fridges, furnace, lights, tv, and my Internet modem.

RE: Is Martha’s vineyard worth the cost & effort? Nantucket?

To me, the private whaling museum on Nantucket is better than the National Parks one in New Bedford. And you can rent bicycles right in town. We never stayed overnight, just day tripped from Cape Cod.
