RE: Tj and 2 motorcycles on a car hauler behind camper.

I've had pretty good luck with the 3,500# brakes. My main problem has been the sorry tires that come on 3,500# axles. I now have replaced all my C-rated (50 psi)tires with Maxxis D-rated (65 psi) tires and I hope they will be a big improvement.

RE: Tj and 2 motorcycles on a car hauler behind camper.

Seriously though, it would be nice if people wouldn't assume that there is only one solution for each problem, right? :) On the internet, the best solution to any problem is always how I did it. :)

RE: Tj and 2 motorcycles on a car hauler behind camper.

Forget the 3500 lb axles. Go with a 10k capacity trailer. Definitely with a TJ and two big bikes and whatever else ends up on the trailer.

RE: Tj and 2 motorcycles on a car hauler behind camper.

I would also get 5,000 lb. axles. Beefier trailer & better brakes. We tow our TJ on an 18' trailer with 3,500 lb axles. I wish I had upgraded to 5k axles/tires. Doesn't cost much if you order it that way.

2017 Lance fit 2006 F-350 DRW?

I assume it will, but does anyone know if a 2017 Lance will fit a 2006 F-350 DRW without any modifications? We are thinking about getting a new camper and hanging on to our current truck for another year. Thanks, Brad

RE: 20lb Horizontal Propane Tank out of date....

I can't imagine that shipping them off somewhere is cheaper than just buying new tanks. I had to buy new horizontal tanks when our 1996 Lance got to be 10 years old and they started requiring that new valve type. They were $90 each back then. The last time I looked, they are about $180 each now.

RE: 20lb Horizontal Propane Tank out of date....

I got a tank re-certified 6 months ago for about $10. Cheap, quick and easy. Maybe you can drive a little out of your area and find someone to do it? Me too. I had to call every dang propane dealer around, but I finally found one that will put the new certified sticker on it. It was $10/tank as I recall. Basically, the tanks are in great shape and he mainly did a visual inspection for rust, then he filled the tanks and put stickers on them.

RE: Ball Hitch vs Reciever Hitch Blue Ox Tow Bars

We had a boat trailer that all of a sudden dropped off the hitch. Or so I thought. I had a buddy who bought a classic T-bird in Atlanta and was pulling it back with a tow bar. Somewhere near Rome, Ga he was passed going down a grade by T-bird exactly like the one he thought he was still towing. :)

RE: Ball Hitch vs Reciever Hitch Blue Ox Tow Bars

But PLEASE!!! If you go Ball Mount with a Drop/Lift, be sure it's a reinforced one. One with a diagonal brace from ball mount to the 2" square tubing. I graduated first in my class from the University of Hard Knocks and Paranoia; I understand exactly where you are coming from. Can't have too much bracing and weld penetration. :) :) BradW

RE: Ball Hitch vs Reciever Hitch Blue Ox Tow Bars

Ball mount may be easier to level. Good info; I had not thought about that. Thanks, Brad

Ball Hitch vs Reciever Hitch Blue Ox Tow Bars

Probably been discussed many times, but I can't find a thread. I will be flat towing a mostly stock 2015 Rubicon behind a truck camper with a 24" hitch extension. There seems to be two basic ways the tow bar attaches to the tow vehicle, either with a 2" ball mount or directly into the receiver hitch. I'm leaning towards the ball mount type because we will also be towing a boat once we get to where we are going. I just wondered if there was a good reason to get the receiver type. Thanks for any help, Brad

RE: Trip Report: Rocky Mountain High in CO and WY

We have driven that stretch of road thru the Snowy Range many times. It never gets old.

RE: Trip Report: Rocky Mountain High in CO and WY

Thanks for the great photos. Looks like y'all had a lot of fun. I love that part of Colorado. We have a trip planned to the Silverton area next summer. Brad

RE: Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

Anyone who loads their truck like they dumped those blocks into that ford should have a damaged truck bed. It ain't a dump truck.

RE: Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

... And I got my Jack Daniels Ole Number 7 whiskey..... I'm only about an hour away from Lynchburg. It was still a dry county last time I was up there.

RE: Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

I'm thinking we will order it in Dec and it should get here in Feb.

RE: DRW vs SRW Trucks

Get the DUALLY if you want to haul a BIG camper! :B What he said. Night and day difference between an SRW and a DRW hauling a heavy high CG load like a truck camper. We hauled our 9' 10" Lance 10 years on an srw and then another 10 years on a drw. No comparison between the two. Brad

Torklift Stuff for 2017 Ford SDs

I contacted Torklift about when they would have tiedowns and receiver hitches for the new 2017 Ford SuperDuties with the aluminum beds and the redesigned boxed chassis. They said it should be about 2 months after the trucks started showing up at the dealers. So I'm guessing sometime around October. Brad
