No but you know what they emailed me and wanted me to write a review, so I did. admitadly it wasn't favorable, but it was honest and surprise surprise they didn't post it. apparently that is what they do, go look nothing negative all positive hmmmmm very odd lol.

buy a tv the wife will be happy with. CHECK
purchase a hitch and wire harness  online from etrailer CHECK
receive hitch dinged and scratched up because they opted not to box it CHECK
call etrailer regarding the wireing harness to find out they "shrink wrapped" it to the bumper that was not packaged CHECK
wait for another week while a new harness is shipped out CHECK
Now to put the wiring on that will be easy and keep looking for a tt or pup. I am spending under 2000.00 and so far I haven't been able to find anything that hasn't leaked or is isn't ripped apart. but I'm getting closer lol

Introduction and Show Off / Im curious about something here
« on: September 24, 2017, 03:25:57 AM »
I have found a tent trailer about three hours from me, I emailed the owner and was told the bearings need to be done which is about 150.00.....this is where the curiosity is peaked am I missing something, everything I have seen it looks like 50.00 should cover both sides. Its a single axel rockwood TT. If  the bearings are badly neglected what is the worst thing I am looking at? I used to have a boat and I replaced the bearing on that and don't remember it bein a big deal.
Thanks

As silly as it sounds, the wife and I are planning on getting a full size cassette toilet and a privacy tent. The plan is to get a screen porch or whatever you call the room that you can put in front of the tt and set the privacy tent at the front unused part of the trailer. This way if we end up pooping its not close to the kitchen and it doesn't smell up the trailer.

Hello folks, ok, I like to do my homework prior to making a "big" purchase (this is big for me lol) I have been reading thru the forums looking at ideas and whatnot, but I think I am getting ahead of myself. so I thought I would come here and ask you your thoughts.
I will be using the tent trailer or pop up by myself for the most part, for one week during the summer and then some occasion weekend jaunts with the wife. I would like to have a stove, fridge and ac. having said that I could just go out and purchase a stand alone ac unit that vents outside, but if the pup has one that's money saved. I would like a place where a couple of friends could come in and hang out play cards that sort of thing if possible. A screenend in porch would be desirable. I'm not real crazy about having the toilet inside especially near bed or food, my thought is (and this is where the screen porch comes into play) is putting a privacy tent outside the pup with a portapottie (looking for suggestions and recommendations here as well). I will be housing this in my garage which has a 8x17 space. this will be my winter project should I need or want to do anything (been looking at mods, such as painting cupboards updating cushions and what not and laying down laminate flooring) as needed, but I don't want to go overboard into debt. Honestly I'm starting with 1300 currently and over the course of the next month or so will have around 2000 to put towards my new pup.
So with all that in mind I am asking your opinions, what are the good pups vs the bad pups. please feel free to throw as much info at me as you wish knowledge is key in making decisions
Thank You

oh yes absolutely...What I will be hoping for....
I would like to keep it under 2k. I will be running it off a generater that I still need to get, during the day. That will keep power my ac and laptop during the day and hopefully charge my battery or batteries that will run the lights and fridge the rest of the time.
Size 7 1/2x16. This will allow for me to keep the tent trailer closed but secured in my garage.
I would love to have AC, but hey that's not a deal breaker. If it doesn't have one then I will just get one of those stand alone acs that vent out a window, I can make that work.
Fridge would be really nice, then I can eat without having to go find a restaurant. I have heard mixed reviews on the 3 way fridges.
A stove would be way cool, but if I had to get a coleman stove that wouldn't be the end of the world.
Potty and shower not nessesary I will be getting a chemical toilet that I will put into a privacy tent outside the tt. we can use the park.
Honestly, I would love to be able to have more seating where a few friends or family can get together and socialize, so I really like the open feel and look.
My hope is to get it sooner than later after looking at a bunch of mods and remodels I have seen, I am anxious to get started...my winter project lol.

Thank You Adam, I will keep that in mind, I don't mind cruising in the slow lane....if I'm too slow for ya, use the fast lane to pass that's what its for lol. I tend to pull over on the single lanes because I don't want to be that guy haha
I'm hoping to keep my budget close to 1000.00 but I will go up as needed (its California so not a whole lot is inexpensive lol) Truly want to keep it under 2k tho, I am going to need to get a generator and that's not going to be cheap (Honda or Yamaha to keep it somewhat quiet)
thanks for the welcome buddy

New guy from California. I'm David and well I'm putting the horse before the cart so to speak, we just picked up a 2017 Ford Escape SE. The hitch and wiring will be here on wed, and I will install it next weekend. Now its just time to keep my eyes open for the cart, a pop up tent trailer.
