Wondering if anyone has any advice on options, upgrades, accessories, modifications. We are pretty new to travel trailers, so I would love to hear what is deemed to be essential for new owners. We will be primarily camping in state or national parks. Lots of road trips especially in the summer time, but some fall/spring camping as well.
Other questions on our mind:
- Color. Any issue with getting one of the brighter colors? Do they tend to fade or hold up pretty well?
- bikes. can you add a rack?
- 13.5K or 15K A/C?
Again, any other advice or considerations for soon to be new owners is welcomed.
Howdy and welcome. I'd like to recommend that you spend some time learning about towing and tow vehicle capacity before shopping for a trailer. Many people don't realize how critical it is to stay within the towing capacity of your tow vehicle for safety's sake. (And many times a salesperson is clueless or will tell you anything to make the sale, so be informed.)
I agree with other posters who say get the a/c upgrade now and not later. While a 13.5 is probably sufficient, when it comes to a/c more is better.
I think you can add a bike rack to just about any RV. (Assuming you mean "bicycle" and not motorcycle.)
Have fun shopping and let us know what you find.
