I know that, didn't know about workmanship and materials. If I could reasonably choose a class a motorhome it'd be either a Monaco Dynasty or Charleston.

Corey,


I read that you have camped at Winton Woods. I have not camped there, but I live about 10 minutes from there and I am considering making reservations. Do you have any favorite sites? Sites to avoid?

Thanks

Question regarding a HW 296; is a brake controller needed if the tow vehicle is a 14' Chevrolet Silverado 1500, V8, 4x4? Is the pup going to possibly create an unsafe towing experience?

these PUP are not that light. While you could tow it without a brake controller, why would you? A brake controller is not very expensive and assuming your truck is pre-wired, it takes 5 minutes to install.

Thanks, I understand, this will be my first camper and I wasn't sure about it, I don't want to get pressured for things at the dealership for things I don't know about, so thanks for the info.

if it has electric brakes, then a brake controller is required by law. that's the bottom line.
if your truck has an integrated BC, then just use that.
