Hello all. I am new here to the forums. I have been a Jayco owner since 2004 and can surely say I have been happy with the product. I recently sold my 2004 Jayco Greyhawk Class C and purchased a used 2010 Octane 29 toyhauler.

I am looking to upgrade some of the equiptment in the TH and have looked to the forum for guidance and feedback. I live in Southern California and mostly dry camp in the desert.

Welcome, luckydad! What kind of "toys" do you haul in that Octane 29?

The main toy is an 08 Kawi Teryx. I was a little concerned with the width because I have long travel, but fit no problem. I was also concerned with my overhead HID's, which I have fixed to an electric actuator to lower them, however, was pleasantly surprised that I did not even have to lower them to get it into the TH (Pictured).

I also have a Polaris 90 (daughter) and a Can Am DSX90 (son). I am able to put one quad in front of the Teryx and place the other in the back of my truck.

I just recently went on my first off-road trip in the TH and was concerned with how it would tow and if my truck would handle it. I have a 2006 F250 4X4 with a 6.0 diesel. I have the Stabilizer tow system. I was filled with water, my teryx, two quads, wood and boy was I happy at how it towed. Frankly, I think it was easier towing then my motorhome with a utility trailer. Seemed like my motorhome caught a lot more wind making driving a little bit tougher.
