Thanks again fellas!!
Actually it was. 2012 Ultra Classic with just about every option you can put it.
That looks like a really nice and well kept RV, seems like the Quality is really good. Back in 02-03 I worked at Coachmen and was hired as a lineman, I moved pretty quickly through many stations and I loved learning about building the Catalina/Somerset TT's and some small RV's. Before I quit, it was in the works for me to be trained as a Assistant plant manager but I was young and stupid. At the time I thought knee surgery and a degree was more important. I ate up my vacation pay and went on FMLA and never returned. The money was good there almost too good.
I tell you all this to say, the units we built each day were nice but not as nice as your new RV!
Was there any evidence of water damage in the roof or walls? Sometimes it is very common with TT's to have these issues. Normally not as much on RV's!
Also I was noticing the toy hauler. Is that a 26'? I need to put AC on mine!
It's in great shape. Interior is really impressive for the age. I ran a carpet cleaner over the carpet and it looks almost new. No signs of water damage that we have found. It only has 47,000 miles on it.
The trailer dad has had for 5-6 years. It's 28ft. AC unit is only 2ish years old. Buddy of his is an ac guy and they traded some work out for it.
I'm guessing your Dad has a Class A! The combination has got to be longer than a semi!
He does. Yeah, I'm not sure the tongue length on the trailer, but with a 36ft motor home and a 28 ft trailer he's at 64+ ft.
Looked into the Class A license thing some. While dad has one I don't and I want to be able to take it myself sometimes. Apparently, class A license are not needed with RVs even while towing. Just an FYI.
Yeah, you can drive a 85' RV weighting 95,000 lbs with your normal license.
But not a 7,000 lb van with 16 seats.
Unless you put a toilet or sink in it. Then you're good.
I think it's a little crazy and scary.
Your state may be different but a class A is required when the trailer you are hauling is rated for 10,001 pounds or more. I know my 26' would be rated for 15klbd but the stamp on it is de-rated to 9900. You're good if its stamped at 10k!
When I tow the deck over trailer that is rated for 14k, if I am pulled they always ask if I have my class A!
I wouldn't want to be pulled without a class A in that rig!
