I'll start off.

Hi, I'm Dave. Big family. Sadly we are getting smaller. As our kids grow up, our group gets smaller and we all assume more chores. Somehow that meant for us we needed a bigger more comfortable rig with a separate garage so we wouldn't have to unload when we get to camp.

We have a Homestead fifth wheel. It's massive. We love it.

We ride dirt bikes. We are down to three riders and three bikes.

We mostly camp at Spangler Hills but now we are checking out the improved sites and sampling the improvements.

Hi Dave, I'm Larry.

I have been riding bikes and quads for over 30 years now. Currently I have achieved getting my current wife and step daughter into the scene so with having more toys and girls in tow I had to get a camper for home type necessities. Watching my son grow up with bikes, we used to just tent it. Things change.

We have the Z-218TD front deck TH
3 sport ATV"s. My Raptor 700 highly modded & my dirt bike
Gould, Colorado has become favorite because of views and abundance of moose.
Walden & Red Feather lakes are our other go to spots for adventure.

Hello Dave
I'm Dayne Ive had two other toy haulers. They were TT one sandpiper and the last a Sandstorm. I just bought the Altitude 3712 fifth wheel with a garage . I currently own a 2011 Kawasaki Teryx. I ride and camp all over Utah Primarily by my house here in eastern Utah. I'm very fortunate to live where I can be in the desert in 5 minutes or near 8000ft elevation in about 15 minutes. Can't imagine not having a toy hauler anymore.

So if I'm reading this right, there are only 3 of us? I would have guessed a slightly higher number, but the number is the number. Anybody else?

I wish back in the day we had toyhaulers. When the kids were young we moved from a tent to a truck camper so we could haul the bikes, trikes and quads. They have come a long way from the original tt toy haulers.

They sure have. They've even evolved in the 12 years since we bought our first one. Our new one is a palace in comparison.

Dave-
We are Ron and Janie, and do not use our toy hauler for toys. Janie makes gourmet candy and uses the garage as her workshop. We are full time ministers, traveling the US. We do not have a home base, and live in our fifth wheel. We currently own a 2015 Crossroads Elevation Talledega. Unfortunately, we have had nothing but trouble with it since we purchased it a little under 2 months ago. We have had it in for warranty work, and even the dealership was surprised at the sheer amount of items that were not completed, done incorrectly, etc.
We had a 2009 Heartland Sundance fifth wheel prior to this, and lived in it for over 5 years, so we were very excited to upgrade to a toy hauler, with more space and functionality.
We hope to get all of it resolved, but keep coming up against new problems.

I'm so sorry to hear about your troubles, Ron.

What kind of issues are you finding?

I've got a pretty short list so far:

* Level-up jacks. The Autolevel doesn't work.
* Fresh water drain doesn't work.
* LED light broken in the bedroom
* LED light on the nose is full of water and only works intermittantly
* Cargo door holds are both broken
* There's a high pitched whine coming from the fuse panel. My wife can't hear it, but my son and I can. It's so bad that after three trips camping in the new coach I now have constant tinnitus ringing in my ears.
* It didn't come with a crank handle for the spare tire holder.

I have an appointment to take it in to the dealer next week for them to take a look.

Dave-
Our list is much like yours.
- The Auto Level did not work - took it in for warranty work, and they discovered the hydraulic hoses were wired in the wrong places, so when I pushed for the Right to go up/down, the Left would, One of the Rear hoses was attached to the middle, etc. It was a miracle I ever got it level for the three weeks it took to get it in. Also one of the sylenoids was leaking.
- LED light above the stove doesn't work - they have to order those special from the manufacturer, so be prepared to wait for that to come in before it can be repaired.
- Fresh water drain would drain the water out before it was half full - there was a loop missing in the overflow
- Black tank valve had leaks past the valve - there was construction debris in it keeping it from closing all the way
- Furnace made loud grinding noise when we turned it on and we lost all power for a few moments - the fan had completely blown apart into pieces
- Rear axle seal was leaking
- Light in my Utility Compartment wasn't working - it was missing the wire to the switch
- Shelves in the living area had bottoms popping out - they repaired those
- Batteries were not receiving a charge - The charge line going from the disconnect to the breaker was loose
- Two decorative lights in the kitchen keep blowing the bulbs. - not fixed yet
- Both Sani flushes leaked when used - they were both missing the rubber gaskets to seal properly

I hope the information above helps you when you go to the dealership.
