I was Just curious. What did you end up towing your 6502 with?

We purchased a beautiful blue 2010 Ford F150. It's amazing the difference and we were thrilled we made this purchase before our recent trip to Lake Ouachita state park. There was a good sized hill going into the park that our Kia wouldn't have liked much but it was a breeze with the truck. And, during the whole 10 hour drive it felt as though we were pulling the trailer rather than the trailer being in control. Much better and much less stressful of a trip!!

I am glad to hear you are comfortable with your combo. It makes towing fun when it feels right!

Dwayne - I couldn't agree more! In our case, I'm going to chalk it up to a learning experience and have better knowledge of what to look for when we trade up. There certainly is a learning curve involved with life as a camper. When we purchased our Vibe we were looking for something big enough for the two of us and our dog. We were pretty naive and were only concerend with having a good-sized bathroom, workable kitchen area and a bed. Well, we didn't think about also looking for plenty of storage space for clothes and air circulation. Once we get the air circulation problems resolved I think this camper will be just right for several years. The good news is that there are plenty of experienced, helpful folks out there willing to coach us newbies along.

Hi, I really noticed this issue when I spent Sept. in Florida. I'm putting a window in to let the air flow in. I saw a picture of a newer 6502 and it seems they've corrected the issue by significantly reducing the wall entirely. But, when my tech tried to do this he said the indicators and thermostat had to many wiring requirement to move easily. Hopefully my modification will work.

John - I'd be very interested to hear about your modification once it's done. Our plan is to install a fan into the wall up near the top, plugging it in to the outlet in the corner of the sleeping area. We plan on looking into a computer-type fan or maybe an exhaust fan of some sort that could be installed in the wall. On another note - what creative ways have you added storage for clothing? We've found the corner cabinet behind the toilet to be basically unusable for anything other than small items. We also sort of roll the towels and keep them there as well.

Hi Jackie, Paul & Zyriah,
I'll keep you posted. I use the TV stand to hold a decent fan. Like you we use the corner cabinet for anything. I get a kick out of telling my wife that I'm going to our library because that's where we keep all our movies and books. I'd like to add some more shelving in the bedroom but I'm not sure of the best method to screw into the walls. I wish Forest River would post their structural diagrams. We're off to Arizona in a few weeks so we'll have another live and learn experience.

Hope you have great travels,

John
