QuickSilver Tent Campers / Best tires for Quicksilver 8.0??
« on: September 27, 2017, 06:44:45 PM »
We put 15K miles on our 8.0 this summer.  Loved every minute of it!!  Now we are looking to replace the original tires but are at a loss as to which brand or type of tire to buy.  Is there an obvious best tire for this trailer?   Or maybe a reliable tire dealer to work with? 

Thanks for any information you can provide.

QuickSilver Tent Campers / Snap came off the aluminum box

A snap came off our 8.0 camper box. The screw ripped right out of the sheet metal and left a hole too big for a replacement screw (I tried). I know the part in the tonneau cover can be easily replaced, but what about this other part?  Thanks for any ideas you might have.

QuickSilver Tent Campers / QS Tent camper in Alaska??
« on: July 05, 2017, 10:41:35 PM »
Has anyone ever taken their QS tent trailer to Alaska?  We hoping to take our 8.0 from Minneapolis to Seattle, then catch the Alaskan ferry up the Inner Passage, making stops in various locations, then taking the Alaskan Hwy home through Canada.  This would be a dream trip for us...one of those "once in a lifetime" things.  We do not have the off road model and plan on sticking to larger cities and paved roads.

I'm worried about a couple of things:
1.  The wimpy tires on the trailer. Will they survive the Alaskan and Yukon roads that can be rough at times?  We currently have the original tires...what's the best upgrade?
2.  It rains a lot in southeast Alaska, and the QS tent trailers are not easy to put up in the rain without everything getting soaked. Is there a solution to that issue? 

Thanks!

QuickSilver Tent Campers / Tent is so tight...can hardly snap it!
« on: May 29, 2017, 09:54:21 AM »
We bought our 8.0 last fall. The tent is extremely tight on the short sides, you know, on the bunk ends--so tight that we can hardly snap it on those ends. I have to stand on a step stool and pull down HARD on the bimini while my husband struggles with each snap.  The tent has plenty of slack on the long ends. We have watched the Livin Lite Quicksilver set-up youtubes and we are following the recommended set-up procedure.  This can't be right!  Do you think our tent was made incorrectly??

QuickSilver Tent Campers / Tonneau Cover Ripples When Driving
« on: May 16, 2017, 08:21:48 PM »
We have a 2017 Quicksilver 8.0 that we bought last fall.  We love it but the tonneau cover seems to have been installed too loosely.  When we drive down the highway, it billows and ripples. I'm afraid this will eventually wear out or tear the cover.   

Our dealer said to bring it in, but that's 350 miles away, so I'd like to deal with it myself. Should I try to reinstall the snaps?  Or can I just use a few wide tie-down down straps?   Thanks for any advice or ideas!
