Rollin’ On TV Show 2019-11 – Comparing Toy Haulers, a Beautiful State Park and Installing RV Shades!

Three Toy Haulers Compared

As Jeff explains in this first segment of our show, "Toy-hauler trailers have been a part of the RV industry for 20-plus years. Toy-haulers were initially designed for people to be able to take their mobile toys with them: motorcycles, quads, side-by-sides, that sort of vehicle.

The toy-hauler provides a garage space with the door that flops down and you can park your toys in there.

But a lot of people who don't have those things are buying these because, frankly, a toy-hauler is just a really great idea.

We're here at George Sutton RV in Eugene, Oregon, and we're gonna take a look at three different models of toy-haulers."

So if you're considering a toy hauler for that extra space, be sure to watch the comparisons of these three examples!

Destination: Calaveras Big Tree State Park

The scenic splendor here is incredible. Giant redwood and sequoia trees, wonderful hiking trails throughout the park, a great campground. It's a nice place to spend some time.

Calaveras Big Tree State Park is located just 3 miles north of Arnold, California, on Highway 4. The park is a magnificent display of the largest tree species alive today.

The giant sequoia, closely related to the coastal redwood, is well-named because it's big and it's the largest living organism on the planet.

A quiet walk among these sun-dappled glades can soothe the soul and awaken the senses to this superb part of the natural world.

Time spent casually wandering here is time well spent. A full-feature visitors center is on site to answer any questions about the facility.

Tourist visits started here about 1850 and the park is as popular as ever today. Well maintained trails and boardwalks make for easy walking access.

The park's two campgrounds feature 120 sites. Many are tent only but there's also room for RVs up to 30 feet long. Plan on making reservations well ahead of a visit. More information about Calaveras Big Tree State Park.

Replacing Old RV Blinds

Welcome back to another RV how-to video on our fifth-wheel project trailer. Most of the required repairs are completed on the trailer. Now I want to concentrate on aesthetics. To improve the look and function of the interior, we're gonna get rid of these old window blinds and valances and upgrade them with the Impulse Roller Shade system by United Shade.

This industry first revolutionary design includes the roller shade and fabric-wrapped valance all in one and it's easy to install. Let's get started.

The Impulse Roller Shade is a new roller shade system designed for quick and easy installation and adjustment. It provides a fully assembled one-piece, fabric wrapped valance and shade combination that can be installed right out of the box with only four screws.

The first step was to order the Impulse Roller Shade system for our project trailer. I went to to get information on taking measurements and to view all my options for shades, fabrics, and endcaps. When the shades arrived, the Impulse system was fully assembled and fabric-wrapped right out of the box.

Mark walks us through the entire installation and it looks pretty easy!
