Discover the Road to RV Adventures | Go RVing.

To all of you like me who are stuck in their home as it is way too cold outside (at the time of writing this it is 25 degrees outside with a stiff wind) so i know i will not be rving in this craziness, but some do not mind this cold, but will take that nice warm breeze and a campfire at night weather. So if you are thinking about that watch a few (or all) of the videos form “Go Rving” and enjoy.

Goose Coupler

Goose Coupler.

 A fifth-wheel system is the preferred way ( in my option and others) but this is a great article as it shows a safe way to add/change your 5th wheel coupler to a goose style without running into warranty issues! For all of you out there who tow a 5th wheel most use the standard 5th wheel couple but there is a couple is issues with them; 1 is they are big and heavy and some people who cannot move big heavy items like these have issues with them (me being one) and 2 once in the bed of the truck the hitch uses up a large amount of space and with both of these reasons is why most who do not have a 5th wheel is the reasons. So then many years ago famers found this problem out and they need to use their beds in their trucks so the goose style was brought about, it tows just as much if not more weight as a 5th wheel style but uses almost no room when used and leaves the truck bed empty when trailer is removed, so many folks ( me included) sue adapters to change their 5ht wheel hitch to a goose style, and one added benefit most people do not talk about is it is safer using a goose type for the reasons of a safer coupler style ( can’t fall off like 5 wheels) and lower hitching point so a lower center of gravity towing. But with all the adapters coming to market a lot of the manufactures have been complaining about them and try and pull fast ones on owners and tell them it will void the warranties if used (which is illegal but still a hassle) so Lipper now says if you change the whole coupler over to a goose style there will be no voided warranties, so this is why these types of complete goose style hitches have come to market. And just as an added benefit if you drop over to REESE hitches they have a full AIR ride unit, so no one is missed out on this new wave. 

So save your truck bed and change over to a goose and you will be happier in the long run!!

 

 

TireMinder TPMS allows drivers to keep tabs on inflation

TireMinder TPMS allows drivers to keep tabs on inflation.

Here is something that has turned into a must have for RVers who travel about the roads. This has become something that most if not all RVers should have, OK why do you need to spend $500.00 on something like this when times are tough? Well i think it comes down to this, if you are one of the many people who travel more than one hour from home base

(Meaning one hour to campground, one hour home) not to the next location, you need this.

 

 With all the situations with Chinese tires yes that does factor into this but my thing is this, if you spend any amount of time on the road with tires costing up to and in some cases more than $500.00 dollars you might be able to save the tire, but more important you might be saving your coach and or vacation or full-timers pocket! Why just spend a couple of minutes on utube or most any blog and you will see horrid stories about all the damage these tires due to your coach and with some cases your coach will be totaled!

 

 

So this is why i feel it is a very good and safe investment to your travels and this model gets some of the best reviews going. So take a look at it and see for yourself. Happy travels and happy camping
