    Just inking the deal on soon-to-be ours: 2011 North Trail 21fbs

    We have a 2009 21fbs and love it. We have made modifications to serve our lifestyle, as I am sure you will as well. The trailer is small enough to fit into small camping spots, but large enough to make it very comfortable to be in for an extended period of time. Enjoy!

    Rand McNally RVND 7720 Deal

    Tried the 7715 (which is supposed to be like the 7720 with a few less features) returned it. It said we lived at #17 in the RV mode, #11 in the Car mode. Neither of these numbers are on our street. Sometimes it showed street names, other times only the parks around us - no street names...

    Things I do

    LOL ... I will do whatever is necessary to do to set up ... I do not believe that there are jobs specific to a man or woman .... EXCEPT ... I gladly give up the reigns on emptying the grey & black tanks. THAT IS A MAN'S JOB. : ) LOL

    Where should we hold the 2014 North American Heartland Owners Rally?

    Niagara Falls .. either the Canadian or the US side would be fun. Great idea. It has been a long time since I have been to the falls. : )

    Any other Heartland travel trailer owners have their dog lock them out of their trailers?

    In our trailer the small sewer hose container is too small, so, we never used it for anything other then a spare trailer key. Who in their right mind is going to look into your sewer hose container for anything let alone a key?

    ATF: North Trail - Do I require slide locks?

    So did everyone make it through the winter??????????

    This has been a weird Winter in southern Ontario. Warm .. freeze .. warm .. freeze. : ) I have gone through more salt, trying to keep our driveway from being a sheet of ice. This Saturday it is supposed to be above freezing, so hopefully, we can get rid of the ice, just in time to freeze...

    Microwave/convection oven

    No special Cookbooks are needed, just use your favorite recipes at the standard recipe temperature. I must admit, I use the convection setting most of the time. I haven't use the 1/2 time feature, but as I understand it, the only thing different is you decrease your time it takes to cook...

    Hope everyone got booked for Goshen.

    Yay ... another 21fbs. In the 2010 Ontario Chapter Kingston Rally we were the only travel trailer and obviously the smallest unit. Love our 21fbs ... perfect size to pull, to find camping spots, etc. :) Safe travel everyone. Can't wait.:rolleyes:

    Hope everyone got booked for Goshen.

    We are got into the extra sites that were added. No sewage, but that is okay. We will be zipping down from Ontario the evening of the 14th and staying about 5 or so hours at a campsite. Then we are hoping to make it to Goshen by noon on the 15th. It will be a whirl wind trip, as I have to go...

    September 2010 - Yellowstone Park & West Yellowstone - Northtrail sightings

    Yes, I know that I am a little late at posting this, but, still don't know whose units these belong to. :) We saw 2 North Trails at Fishing Bridge RV park in Yellowstone park, but didn't get a chance to talk to anyone. One with the new logo - but no decals down the sie. The other was an...

    Dinette Table for 2011 21 FBS NT

    You will still have the problem of storing the table while traveling. That was our concern. So, DH came up with: For more pictures you can go to: We had a metal fabricator make them out of stainless steel. DH put solid oak into the holes...

    Feedback to Heartland on 21FBS bed

    We (actually DH) took off the chipboard and used it as a diagram for the plywood. We added 6" in length extra and then added legs. This now made it a true queen size bed. We did not want to spend the money on another mattress, so we filled the top 6" (near the top of the bed) with rolled up...

    James and Lisa's 2011 21FBS

    You will love the 21fbs. DH and I just got back from a 4 week - over 6200 mile trip. We drove from Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and went through the border into Michigan, then onto Yellowstone Park and back. Everything on the 21fbs was perfect. We had freezing temperatures at night, so left the...

    How far do you pull in a day?

    I like to do NO more than 5 to 7 hours of travelling, starting early in the morning, taking some breaks along the way and then getting to a campsite in time to have a relaxing supper. I work as well, so, keep most traveling to areas closer to home. I will only do a longer trip if I can get...

    Shut Out (from camping) in Dryden Ontario

    How disappointing and frustrating. I can understand you moving on and spending your money in another community. Just took a look at Dryden's website and laughed when I read : "Ample parking for cars, RV’s and buses," Thanks for the warning.

    Added a Hensley Arrow to our trailer

    Haven't been out driving the trailer yet, as the Arrow adds 1 foot to your tongue length, which makes the safety chain and electrical too short. :) However, the hensley is installed - see video: The chain has been extended, just have to get the...

    Flying Bedliner Crash

    Nothing blowing off ... but 3 lanes of vehicles coming to an abrupt stop in front of our trailer and a truck veering into our lane right in front of us. Just got the truck and trailer stopped in time. It took awhile for my stomach to stop feeling upset. It was quite a fright. Thought this...

    What does everyone pull?

    We will be the small kids on the block. We have a 21fbs that we pull with our Ford Lariat F150. The 21fbs fits in our driveway, so, that is as big as we will be getting. :angel: We will see you at the Kingston Rally! Jeannine & Roy Barkhouse

    Anybody from Ottawa area

    Awning (not electric)

    I assume the awnings are the same as on my North Trail. I took video during my PDI. If you would like .. a small size movie - of the awning - that you can watch in quicktime, just send me an email with AWNING INSTRUCTIONS in the subject line, I would be happy to send it to you.
