    Thumbs up Official MOA RV thread...

    Well with all the talk of camping, traveling, whether to tow a trailer and the rest....I thought for those of us that enjoy a rainy night inside with a shower, with a refrigerator and think trailering a bike or two to a location and having a great "launch point" to tour from is the way to go- here is the thread.
    It doesn't matter what size or configuration you run, if you like to use it and enjoy it, it would be nice to see it.
    Here is mine.
    If you think that this is a terrible thing, that's OK and you can save that for another place.
    By the way, if you have some issues with your RV, I'm pretty well versed in the area of repair so don't hesitate to speak up.
    Is that rain? Hang on till I close the vent and turn on the A/C.
    Enjoy, Gary

    Looks Great!

    I don't have one, but this looks like a nice alternative to motels, especially for a visit to an area worthy of lots exploration. Enjoy!

    Sometimes we ride and camp. And sometimes we take the dirt bikes and RV with our little guy!

    I'll be there with my toy hauler & RT. Wife wanted to go, but not ride 1000 miles, so we compromised!

    My buddy & I will be the 40 year olds with the trailers...

    Here is ours. 2007 Coachmen Leprechaun, 31 foot, with two slide outs. The picture was taken at Stone Mountain Ga, 2011. We love ours and kids enjoy it. I had a car dolly to tow a car, but that was lot of work to hook up for short trips. They are fun.

    Toy Hauler

    Hey John,

    I'm in the EXACT same boat as you as far as the wife on long rides. We are currently looking for a toy hauler to tote the 2011 RT around with. If you don't mind, what kind of hualer do you have and what are you pulling it with? It will just be the two of us and possibly two cats (if we must). And if you would have done anything different feel free to share.

    I don't have a picture handy, but it has a queen sized bed with RED quilt and cabinets above our feet for storing lots of stuff.

    Ya know, I'm not a camper really, but that little guy just might be a way to beat crappy motels, and not have a fortune just sitting when not in use. And my current truck would tow it easily. Base at a campground....and???

    I gotta think about this....

    I'll top that one, our "T@B Trailer" is bigger than yours Little Guy" Ha! Has "blue" "Kentucky" in script across the back & a queen bed with kitchen too.
    They weigh them @ the factory & the scale person signs off on the weight at the front door-I thinks ours is like 1,524#'s . It has been feeling neglected lately, fall trip coming up!

    We use it with the OEM awning that attaches to the front in an arc the a tarp over to a screen room . Quite an impressive "complex".
    For pics see: T@B trailers-they're cute!

    This may be a dumb question but can anyone point me towards a class 'c' size motorhome that is capable of hauling an RT class bike? That might make it possible for me to get my wife to attend some of the larger rallies with me. I'd rather not tow a trailer. Thanks!

    Not a bad choice to take a peek at. A good thing to remember is when an RV's chassis is lengthened, they call the pieces "frame extensions". It's good to keep an eye on that aspect if you are going to try to "hang" a full size bike on the back (no trailer).

    OK, I'll watch for that too, thanks.
