Hello EVERYONE, Wildbill and Mean jean here. out of all the forum sites out there I find myself coming back to this one. I think its because this is the most friendly one. We,ve been looking to get into a smaller ( under 30' ) pull behind toy hauler, how ever seems most of the discussions are about the bigger ones. As a pipe welder I travel around the upper Midwest and would like to be able to stay in it till the freezing point. I don't need a whole lot just a place to crash, a man sized shower and to able to bring a motor cycle with. at this point my head is just spinning with all the choices out there. just about the time I think I,ve narrowed it down I find some horror story about that brand. I will say thank you in advance for any and all help with some advice.

Welcome aboard. You will never find the PERFECT RV, as they all have problems of some sort sooner or later. Some minor and some not so much. Good luck with whatever you get. Toy Haulers sound like fun.

Hello as well, I find this forum interesting as well. The Work & Play is a good suggestion, we looked at the Forest River Freedom Express 27 footer last month. They redesigned it for this model year, but I can't remember the shower size. Enjoy your quest!

You will always find horror stories, but usually they are from people who may not know what they're doing in the first place.

Cruiser RV makes a FunFinder that I think is pretty great.

Please don't yell at me for not being able to find information I need and saw on IRV2 just last week. The 2000 F53 I have has a transmission position indicator in the dash that is not working right. I found the problem. It is a small plastic part that mounts on the steering column and it is broken. I read where someone else had the same problem and was able to repair it by gluing it back together. I tried to get a new one from my local Ford guys and was told it has been discontinued, is no longer available, and that I should check salvage yards. So here I go with the repair attempt. My only concern is what type of glue to use. As I see it this is going to be a one shot deal. I have spent several hours searching for the fellow that has the right answer. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
