BTW-FYI: Here's a list of states that allows riders in TT's

I'm also trying to figure out if i need a breakaway switch...but I suppose the law applies for the state that you are traveling through.


Have you never questioned those who travel? Have you paid no regard to their accounts- Job 21:29

I see zero

Based on that web site, I see zero that allow riding in a travel trailer these days. Be careful!

We go to the international rallys where they give directions and updates over channel 14 on the cb. I have an inexpensive cb under the cabinet over the booth. When we are pulling all caravans use the cb to comunicate and its nice to be able to listen to truckers or get local info when traveling, so I have a cb in the truck. Parking in blind spots is difficult at best, we use t he truck radio and a hand held cb when doing this. The only extra equipment is the hand held cb which has a much better range (4 watts)than the walkie talkies (0.5 watts). We used to use the walkie talkies in the malls and flea markets, but we have found the cell phone to be much better and person to person for us is free.
Keep the shiny side up.

Baby Monitor!

most only work in "simplex" mode (one-way from base to receiver). although, most base units need a/c...if you can't find one that runs on a battery, you can use one of those small inverters inside the truck.
