QuickSilver Tent Campers / added some carpet..:)
« on: April 11, 2017, 03:37:37 PM »
after reading a few different forums i saw that some people complained about the alumn floor getting cold..   

  so i made a template and cut some rubber backed carpet to fit.    turned out pretty good.   hopefully it helps some..

Upgrades and Modifications / ceramic heater??
« on: January 30, 2017, 11:53:09 AM »
 i have a QS 8.1.  a friend recommended a ceramic heater to take the edge off if it happens to get cool out..    anyone have a recommendation on what size would do the trick?

 i won't be out in 30 degree weather (by choice anyway) but say in the mid 40's..

thanks in advance...

General Q & A / awning ideas...
« on: January 23, 2017, 03:52:20 PM »

  so i have a 2011 QS 8.1 and would like an awning..  the new QS uses an YKKK zipper and the 2011 uses an IDEA zipper so i'm afraid if i buy a new awning that the zippers won't mesh...     does anyone have any clever ideas on how to make and attach an awning for this thing?

  thanks in advance..

QuickSilver Tent Campers / where to buy parts??
« on: January 06, 2017, 07:24:22 PM »

  i'd like to buy an awning kit for my 2011 QS 8.1. where can i buy one?  can i buy them right from Livin lite?  or does it have to be a dealer?  closest dealer is 2 hours away which kinda sucks if i have to go that route..

QuickSilver Tent Campers / care for a 8.1

so i bought a QS 8.1 today..   the canvas has a few spots that need cleaning..   what is the preferred product to use to clean the inside and outside of the canvas? should i treat the canvas with anything?  something like 303 areospace products or anything?

Keep up with the Latest from Livin' Lite / couple of quick question.

i joined the other forum just in time to see its being shut down..   then i joined Aluminium Camper Forum and between the two i think i gathered enough decision to make a decent purchase....

  today i drove to lancaster pa area to look at a 2010 QS 8.0.   i was on the fence about buying it. it needed a few things but was in decent shape i thought.  asking price was $3750 i know he would have come down some too... i  was gong to call the guy back about the 2015 unit i looked at the other day  to see if he would come down from the $6400 out the door price (also needing work) but before doing so i happened to walk past what i thought were 3 10.0 units.  then i looked and was like thats too short to be a 10.0.   it was in a lot better shape then any of the others there and turned out to be a 8.1.   i called the wife and talked to her about it and she thought the bed sizes would work out better for us.   so i got the sales man to open it up and i went over it.  looks good..  its a former rental like the others but is in pretty good shape i think..   ended up making a deal on it.  would only drop to $3700 ($4167 out the door) on it because he said it was rented a lot less then the 8.0 units.  said most preferred to have the same size beds on each end..    hopefully i did ok on it..

  so i will pick it up on the 20th.    kinda excited..    going to have to figure out what supplies i'll have to bring camping now...

  i guess my first question will be:    what do ya clean the canvass with?  this isn't horrible but has a few spots that need to be cleaned...    also is there anything you need to treat the canvass and cover with?  something like 303 Products Aerospace Protectant or anything?

here are a few crappy phone pics..
