Our Lexington

Here's our rig: 2009 Lexington GTS 300SS, bought it with 38M on odometer. No real problems yet, with the exception of an interstate blow out on the right rear inside tire last year. That's another story. We're prepping her now for departure tomorrow headed for a week at Dauphin Island, AL. As new RV owners, we're really enjoying learning and using our Lexington. Appreciate this forum.

Nice looking rig! The lexingtons still looks new. I would love to hear how well it pulls a Toad (our 26' is manageable most of the time as a "car", but when I can do more than two weeks at a time I will want a toad). Per your blowout issue, I am looking at which TPMS to buy for our rig.

Safe travels!

Beautiful RV.

I have factory TPMS on my Beemer. I have it displayed in my cluster
at all times and has saved me more than once from disaster
on my motorcycle rides. I am considering it for the camper as
I have the factory system on my TV. Why not have TPMS on all involved!

NoviBill, that Ford Triton V10 is a hoss. Towing digs into gas mileage, as you would think, making it about 8 MPG, versus 11 MPG with no toad. My next investment will probably be for a TPMS.

We tow a Subaru Crosstrek behind our 2012 Lexi 283ts, and have done so for a bit over 20,000 miles. No problems, no worries. Does just fine. Don't care or am not bothered by milage as it is what it is.
Have a 3 month/12,000 mile trip comming up in May-July across Us, up to Canada, and into Alaska, then back across Canada, all while towing the Subi.
Your Honda should be no problem at all...on our trips we always see lots of CRV's being towed.
Have good trips and a-lot-a-fun.
