Proud new owner of a 2017 Thor Challenger 37YT. Looking forward to learning more about the coach and RV experience. Here are a couple photos of our first trip out to Ocotillo Wells for Thanksgiving weekend. Looking forward to many more trips all over this great land.

Welcome from another SoCal member. We hit the dez for TDay weekend also, been doing the same for 20 years or more. Sometimes Ocotillo for Xmas time and up around Spangler for TDay and a bunch of places in between.

Nice rig. Do you tow a trailer with dirt bikes?

Double Joe Hauler

Instead of towing a trailer, I bought a Double Joe Hauler. It slides right into the tow hitch and there is a bolt to tighten so that it prevents swaying back and forth. You just set the ramp on the loading area and walk the bike right up. You need 4 tie downs per bike but it sure beats have a trailer behind you. Here are a couple pictures.

I made a rack just like this for my last coach but it sure put a lot of weight on the hitch. I reinforced the entire under side with additional metal welded up to the frame rails.
