General Campfire Discussion / What's best to buy in the off season?
« on: October 17, 2017, 06:38:28 PM »
I can't believe I'm going to say this, but the holidays are coming! I need lots of new things for my new to me camper, another hose, a step stool, a ladder, more clips, and lots more things I haven't realized yet. Most things are a few bucks here and a few bucks there but they add up.

What have you seen go on sale during the holidays that's best to wait for?
Example I waited for Black Friday and got a nice platform bench for cheaper than normal.

What shouldn't you wait to buy?
I found out it's not good to wait to buy a hose, Walmart's all out of the cheap garden hoses now.

Towing / Re: Towing with extra mirrors
« on: October 17, 2017, 06:20:50 PM »
Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I couldn't find anything specific for my vehicle so I ended up just taking a chance and trusting Amazon reviews. I must say I'm very happy with the mirrors I got. They clip on easily and the strap sort of ratchets on so I don't have to worry about pulling. I can get them on in about 2 minutes and the vibration isn't too bad. I don't have to wear garden gloves to pull them tight, and they don't feel like they're going to fall off. I'm pleased!

Thanks for your help! It looks like I'm going to need one. Any tips or suggestions when buying one?
Does that work for sway or do I need something in addition for sway?

Towing / Towing with extra mirrors
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:17:28 PM »
I'm looking for mirrors to extend from the car since I can't see as much with the hybrid as I could with the pup. e-trailer only ha mirrors for the drivers side. Do people only do the drivers side, or do they usually put a mirror on the passenger side also?

Thanks!

How do you know when a load distribution hitch is needed?
In this case I'm pulling a trailer with a gross weight of about 3200 lbs loaded.

Pop-Up Campers / Re: Tv

Does the TV have a stand? I'd be worried about it sliding or getting crushed. Maybe put it in a laptop bag?

Towing / How do I stop?
« on: August 15, 2017, 07:07:30 PM »
I'm upgrading my camper and have never had trailer brakes before. What information can you pass on?  Is there something that would be smaller and not obvious? I've been in my friends car and their brake controller bracket is ugly and obvious. I'd definitely prefer when it's not being used to not know it's there... is that crazy?

Is there a specific controller that you love? Or hate?
