Ok I got the message Owen LOL !!

How long do you recommend for the sewer hose, is 20 feet long enough ?

Do I really need that slinky you put under the hose

Drinking hose , how long 25 feet enough or should I go with 50 ?

Tell me also why April is so far away ??

Salut Homer:

During our shopping we considered construction and decided to go with fiberglass and aluminum framing for the same reasons some of the others mentioned. A coat of wax per year will go a long way in reducing fading over the life of your trailer.

My preference for the sewer hose is a 20 ft and a 10 ft that connect together because they fit easily into my bumper and a short run 10 ft is easier to deal with if that is all that is needed or when dumping at a dump station.

Flyrotor.....X2 THe delam problem is a bugger to deal with on fiberglass. It looks nicer initially but the sun raises hell with it.

2-25' that way you only put out how much you need.. less to trip over.

May I suggest a trip around the Gaspé and P.E.I. on your way to Halifax? In a couple of years, my wife and I plan to repeat our trip in that area. Things have probably changed a lot since the mid '70's when we were there... now there is a bridge to P.E.I!

+1

I carry 2-25' white drinking water hoses, 1-50' standard garden hose (for black tank rinse, etc), 2-10' sections of sewer hose with all the fittings (that's how the kit came; Camco Revolution) and 1 plastic sewer hose support.

So far, that's been more than I've ever needed.

Thanks for starting this thread. I guess the grass is always greener on the other side. I like the looks of the WhiteHawk line. I think I'll be happy with what I've got, and what is paid for (partly due to the hail damage insurance pay off of my note).
