RE: Thoughts on a used Ford tow vehicle...??

My pervious insurance company wouldn't insure anything bigger than a 250/2500. Do to the fact that they though people with the 350/3500 trucks would use them for business use. Whaaaat? Glad you said "previous"! Never heard of that before. Must be city folk! :D Well I'm not city folk. The company was the e insurance company

RE: Thoughts on a used Ford tow vehicle...??

Just a small tip about auto insurance. If you do decide to go with the F350 call your insurance company to make sure that they will insure it. My pervious insurance company wouldn't insure anything bigger than a 250/2500. Do to the fact that they though people with the 350/3500 trucks would use them for business use.

RE: Frustration with CW

I don't get it. They can build these trailers in hours and build dozens ever day. So why does it take weeks to get one? Of corse I have never special order anything either. "fireman41" - wear your SCBA! You've been exposed to smoke from something "unusual" burning. RV mfgrs are *NOT* like auto assembly lines..:R Most assemblers at RV assembly facilities are piece workers. The info about "runs" of a certain model is correct. Delivery to the dealer is "per unit" - by an independent hot-shot driver who contracts with the mfgr. Can be very seasonal employment, feast and/or famine. More units than drivers? No magic solution. The delivery date the mgr gives the dealer is not cast in concrete. If the OP orders a different brand - or same one from a different dealer - good possibility same situation will be repeated. Cancel the purchase contract, with a deposit refund?..:@ *TWO* chances of that happening........ Slim and None..:( It is what it is...:W ~ Yes I do wear my air pack:) I just figured that the way most of these things are mass produce it wouldn't take long go get . Like I have said I have never ordered one off a dealers lot. I by mine campers used off the onwers.

RE: Hershey 2014 travel trailer follow up

I have a 2011 jayco 26 BH. So far I like it. We are currently finishing up a 2000 mile long 2 week trip with it and haven't had any problems with it. After 2 weeks it does get a bit cramped but for us the camper isn't the destination it's just a place to shower and hang our hats. The pros of the camper are it has a lot of storage. I love the fact that it carries 90 gals of fresh water but you will need to tote be case the gray and black are only 36 gal each. The bunks one our has the double bed on the bottom and single on top,but that gave us a small closet to put the kids clothing. The things I don't are the cheap plastic sinks and tolit.

RE: Question About Pontoon Axles ?

In stead of adding a second axle have you looked at maybe just replacing the current axle with a heavier one?

RE: 4,000 - 4,200 RPM?

My 6.2 in my f250 just loves to be at 4500 rpm when pulling. I have even run it up to 6000 once or twice on these little steep hills in VA and WV

RE: Andersen-3604 Camper Leveler

Something I have noticed is when I have it up on the anderson levelers I don't get as much movement in the camper. I was going to get a set of x chocks but I might not now.

RE: 2015 Chevy 2500HD 6.0L gas Ike Gauntlet

The reason they don't shift the truck manually is because there want to see how well the factory has the shift points mapped out.

RE: Restrictions on RVs in Smithtown, NY

As far as keeping an rv on your property I'm fine with that I got my parked beside my garage. But I don't like the idea of long term parking on the street. Like some else stated it could make ever harder for fire equipment to get down some streets.

RE: Found while searching for another TT

Wow you would need a dully to pull that thing. I like the how the built in garbage can is pulled out from the out side heck it has a built in garbage can.

RE: Coolers

Add salt to the water in the cooler in it will lower the freezing freezing point of the water and will help keep the ice a bit longer

RE: Best car for towing pop-up

The new Mazda cx5 or the cx7 with the turbo would work well.

RE: Backing up tip

The scoop our what we call in the trucking industry the 45 degree back works well. My biggest problem is were the axles are placed on the camper. I'm used to having the wheels and the very back of the trailer were campers have the wheels more towards the center so the camper cut in faster. Also with the axles in the center position you get a lot more tail swing Wich could be a problem when pulling out of a tight spot and making a hard trun. Also with a lot of rear over hang you have to be more square with a tight spot when backing in.

RE: cars to one side, trucks/trailers to the other
