thanks for your thoughts....and yes customizing is for everyone to make it your home away from home....you know I did the same thing with my old Trailmanor 3124 and I even documented it with a web site (www.trickmytrailmanor.com
) which by the way I have given to a good friend/Trailmanor owner that wanted to preserve all the work I did for future Trailmanor owners....Making that web site was a hell of a lot of work, but I wanted to show (mainly the Trailmanor company) what was possible by upgrading things so as to make them better, but sadly they didn't take any of my advise however a lot of owners did and that made me happy!!! I liked the Trailmanor accept for a few things....mainly the toilet...wheeeeeeeew! what a stinker that abomination is...it is a recirculating toilet that really doesn't work and stinks if you crap in it at all....so what good is it...Trailmanor owners would actually defend it by saying they only used it to pee in and would go to the campground toilets for major dumping...so if you can't use it why have the stupid thing... Man I got in a lot of trouble over that toilet and to this day can't understand how people can be so F#$%#@$ stupid!!!I replaced mine with a REAL RV toilet that had it's own little holding tank under the toilet bowel (the very same one that the Scamp Trailer company puts in their units....WOW, what a difference that made!!! However I got kicked off their forum for raising a stink as big as that toilet itself....oh well, NO BIG LOSS!!!
You know I have found that the HiLo crowd are SOOO much nicer folks than a lot of the Trailmanor people....don't know why that is, but I like you folks much more!!
Like I say the Trailmanor and the HiLo both have pro's and con's....another thing I didn't like about the Trailmanor is that it only has one axle (unless your lucky enough to find their biggest model the 3326 which does have two axles). But what really takes the cake for the HiLo was the couch tip out which creates much more room to live in and also I really do like the floor plan of my 31C with the galley up in the front of the trailer instead of in the middle like the Trailmanor where you are always trying to walk thru someone....plus in the HiLo there is WAY less stuff to set up although it is a lot more heavy than a Trailmanor.....all in all I think the HiLo is the better unit and seems to be better finished out especially on the inside trim....I Love MY HILO!!!! You know I thought about doing a web site on all the modifications that I have done to it but since the new HiLo company only makes matchbox trailers I thought what's the use.....however, anyone interested in what I have done please contact me at LNT123@att.net
and I'll send you my phone number and would be happy to discuss with them my mods.
Happy Travels Folks
