Western RV’s SUTC

January 31, 2008

When the SURV (aka “toy hauler”) craze hit the RV industry, the first designs were simple travel trailers and fifth-wheels with cargo space in the rear and living quarters up front. Then, having exhausted virtually every idea, convenience and amenity in trailers, imaginative minds moved on... Read more »

November 30, 2007

Unless you haven’t been out of the house much lately, you’ve probably noticed that the SURV market is the hottest thing since slideouts.

Double Cab Tundra & Pacific Coachworks’ Tango

November 1, 2007

A Toyota and a full-sized fifth-wheel. There’s a combination we hadn’t done before, and until the all-new 2007 Tundra was introduced, we didn’t think it could happen. The test Tundra was rated to tow 10,600 pounds, only slightly lower than the truck’s 10,800-pound maximum. That... Read more »

Eco 718QB

October 12, 2007

We don’t have to talk to you about fuel prices. And we’re not going to utter any four letter words (like OPEC). But it probably hasn’t escaped you that the cost of RV travel has increased, and may continue to do so. To some of you, this may not matter — but to the budget-conscious... Read more »

Dodge Nitro SLT & Chalet RV Takena

September 1, 2007

Bright sun and dusty ground are hardly the conditions we expected while hiking the Hoh Rain Forest Trail in the Olympic National Forest in Washington state.

Some fifth-wheel trailers are large and residential, intended for people who tend to stay put for extended periods, while others are more compact and roadworthy — designed for owners who prefer to be on the move more regularly. And then there is the Alumascape 32SKT, which seems to fit into both... Read more »

The Host With the Most

November 1, 2006

Floor space, or the lack of same, is often the most significant compromise when choosing a truck-camper style of RV. Host  Industries Inc. has solved this dilemma with an opposing pair of slideouts. With both slides deployed, we measured about 54 inches from the kitchen-counter face to the dinette and... Read more »
