Just received notification that our unit will be arriving on or about the 16th of March. Guess i am gonna have to get serious about a hitch. The truck has rails installed, need a 20K head. Trying to get the dealer to assist with one at their cost. Don't have a place to park it yet. Will not fit in the lot where we have been keeping the class A. Should have bought a house with some room, but at the time we were into boating so we could just tie up and go home. For a while we had a 19' runabout that would fit in the garage.

Any recommendations for a side by side UTV? Thinking seriously about a clone... About a 4 grand savings.

There are actually!! Ha! Now I'll have to check on them for big rigs since this will be our first time out with such a long unit, and a 5er to boot!

I got them at Wal Mart. I actually have them not only in that large cupboard over the sink, but I have one under the bathroom sink, and I have them in the cargo/man cave, in the overhead storage shelves.

Oh, and I line them with the same thing I use to line the shelves, so that nothing falls through and keeps things from sliding!

Well, ladies I wasn't sure I should comment on the dishes/kitchen stuff since I don't really have a feminine side, but here goes! We've towed our 35x12 from PA to Va Beach (230 miles one way) and Pa to Myrtle Beach (650 miles one way). Some of those roads are quite bouncy, especially with 2 bikes in the back. Never had anything shift in or out of the cabinets. Wife likes everything lined with non slip liner she bought at Walmart or Kohls or some other place she's always shopping at I'm sure you guys don't need advice on shopping She keeps a coffee maker and toaster oven above the sink, along with all of the dishes. Pots and pans go in the oven, with liner or hot pads between them so they don't scratch. Karen- we got a Tv in our bedroom and it came with a mount in the front compartment by the outside stereo so you can take it outside to watch. I didn't think it was an option, except for the outside mount so maybe you can ask a dealer to get you one. The Tv is really small though, and it is mounted in the upper right corner where you walk in the bedroom from bathroom. And that mount doesn't pivot or swivel, so you gotta watch at the angle it's at. I never can get pics to post on here, but maybe can try again. Want snow next couple of days so not sure when I'll get out to the rig.

I don't even have their non slipping stuff I mine. Decided not to. the last camper it drove me nuts!!! I keep all my pans and my griddle in the bottom drawer of the cabinet in the steps. Ya'll don't have this in he 385x12 though. Not that I recall at least.

I wish ours would have had the TV mount in the storage too! I have my mod list started! I do love the rubber type liners. I don't usually have trouble with them, but just like the extra cushion/padding they provide. I even have them in the overhead storage area in the cargo/man cave. I added those shelves I posted earlier, and it provides twice the storage! I keep a lot of Harley gear up there!

MightyMike I see you are going to Goshen this August! Are you bringing your bike? NotLookinBack is going too, and we are both bringing our Harley's. if you do....we would love for you to ride with us! Heck, see if you can get your camping site with us too! We have asked to be set up together!
