CampLite Travel Trailers / Re: Livin Lite fifth wheels
« on: July 03, 2019, 07:06:20 AM »
The 5th wheels did not have aluminum roofs because of they could not bend them around the roof line.  They also have steel frames because of the increased stress on a fifth wheel.  They were two points of contention among some when they first came out.  I still find them really fascinating and tempting.

General Q & A / Re: 2013 13QBB interior height
« on: March 18, 2019, 01:40:40 PM »
I'm 6'2".  We have a 2013 21BHS and the ceiling height is fine.  Gets a little tight just under the air conditioner but nothing that causes an issue.

I sealed mine with Geocell sealant.  That took care of it.

General Q & A / Re: Exterior door

I started to get some bubbling on the door of my 2013 21BHS.  There was water draining from inside the door, so I knew moisture was getting in.  I removed the window, and resealed the glass.  No additional bubbling since.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Re: Ripped floor

Thanks for the responses. I plan on contacting the dealer and see if it is still covered under warranty. I know why it happened. I had some beverages stored under the dinette (maybe about 40 or 50 pounds). the left corner of the facade dug into the floor as the slide came in. There is not much of a gap under the facade and there is some rock to the slide. I would make sure your slide has little to no weight in it when you move it.

That makes sense.  My 2013 21BHS does not have any storage under the dinette and sits about 4" above the floor so I'm not used to that.  Hope it is covered, but if not looks like you're good to go.

not on warranty?

If out of warranty or too much hastle to get defunct LL to fix, then this might work:

Smooth down the ripped section with a warm iron, or heat gun. Then get an automotive vinyl upholstery repair kit. Use the kit to make the patch. I was surprised at how nice a patch it made to a ripped section of our car's seat.

This could be a good fix.  However, before trying this make sure you understand why the rip occurred in the first place and ensure it won't be happening again.  No sense making the repair if the problem that caused it in the first place is still there.

General Q & A / Re: Cracked Frame
« on: November 01, 2018, 09:14:04 PM »
Those frame pieces look significantly smaller than the ones used on my 2013 21BHS.  I realize the 16DB was lighter, but there does seem to be a big difference.

Just take a small screwdriver and carefully pry the cover off of the lights.  It will just slide off after passing across a detent that holds it in place.

Extremely sorry to hear this, I know it's a tad after the announcement but we currently own a 2014 Livin Lite 8.5x28' FBR Quicksilver toy hauler. We absolutely love it. We looked for two years before we purchased this unit. I know Thor bought them after this, 2016?. Every time we think of selling our unit and buying something else, bigger, or better or a 5th wheel, we have NOT found anything in the market that we feel comes close. Sorry KZ, it is what it is. Thor, we've owned a Thor product, Hurricane 33' Class A. I'd rather go back to tent camping. De-lamination, electrical, roof membrane, hate to say never but.....Looks like our next toy hauler will have to be an ATC. My understanding is the original engineer who developed or at least help develop the Livin Lite brand, broke from them and started ATC. To date our 2014 has been great and we will have to, willingly, keep our current toy hauler for many years to come, best part of this is, it most likely will be around for many years to come unlike many of the current products available.

I agree with your sentiments exactly.  The Thor acquisition was announced in September 2013, just as we were in the process of buying our 2013 21BHS.  However, it took a couple of years before Thor started changing the design.  Our 21BHS has been terrific and I can't imagine replacing it with anything else on the market.  Thor had a real gem in LivinLite and while maybe it was a bit of a diamond in the rough, they totally missed the characteristics that made the campers so appealing.  What a shame.

New Members / Re: happy owner of a new used 2015 32RLS
« on: August 23, 2018, 09:33:58 AM »
hello to all. Wanted to introduce myself to the group.  After owning several smaller units, the wife and I came across this 5th wheel and couldn't say no.  Very glad to join the livin lite family.  The unit is a 2015 and has never been owned.  Any advice and pointers are welcome. 

Does anyone have the owners manuals for these 5th wheels?  I've contacted livin lite, but they didn't keep copies.  Any help is appreciated.

What a find!  Congratulations and enjoy.

Best thing I can recommend is to download the manuals for the individual components.  LivinLite posted them here:

There is a Styrofoam like filling in the middle.  I used contact cement to re-glue the surface.  Be aware that if the sides are coming off, the contact cement will disolve the foam if it directly hits the Styrofoam.

You may want to look up the model number for your door and then go to the challenger door website to see what the cutout opening dimensions are for door installation.  You may find you need to remove the door frame to get the required clearance.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Re: Illuminated light switch
« on: August 01, 2018, 07:53:46 AM »
Thanks,
So the red illuminated switch is to turn on the water heater using electric when the camper is plugged into 110 volt.  I need to look for the other switch on the hot water heater and try that out.
Thanks!

I believe it will turn it on for either electric or gas.  The water heater on my Camplite is gas only and the switch controls the gas.

On my 2013 21BHS it is for the gas water heater.

Get a good non-silicone caulk like Geocel Proflex RV and seal the joints in the wheel wells.  I would get water in my 2013 21BHS.  Once I sealed it, the inside stays dry; even when towing through heavy thunderstorms.
