RE: Budget fiver for snow birding

Look around we found our 2012 Heartland Land Mark Key Largo for $56,000. It had been used 2 trips. And was loaded, as in full body paint, Washer/Dryer, Auto Sat dish, GEnerator, 4 door fridge, outdoor TV, you name it this unit had it on there. We had plans of buying a new unit the next week or should I say ordering one. And it was 12,000. more than this used one. But without the Full Body paint job, Gen, Washer dryer and Auto Sat dish. Theres great deals out there and your in the right spot and time of year to find them. Also ours was 5 months old when we bought it. Pete

RE: Metal carport for 5th wheel questions

Most lumber will be rough cut, as theres 7 Amish mills here now. We have had hundreds move in our section of Tn within the last 3 years. I agree its a nice price and they put one this size up in 2.5 days. Pete Forgot the 6x6x20ft will be treated lumber. Poured in Concrete and sitting on a gravel bed for drainage. Pete

RE: Which balance beads where to get installed near Houston, TX

I use the Premium airsoft beads. Been using them for around 5 years. Before that used the powder from Rickson tires.

RE: Question for Hensley hitch owners

Mine also has no issue. But if you just sit the hitch down on the rails without going by the Manual it could happen. As in put the hitch in the rails without the legs on the hitch being tightened down. Then after hitch is on the rails Torque the bolts down? Pete

RE: Metal carport for 5th wheel questions

I was looking at those, but for the same $$ will be putting up a 24 wide x 50ft long 16ft high Pole barn. That way I can park the 41ft 5th wheel in with all sides out. And still park my truck and boat along side it. Also putting in full hookup's inside and outside along with Extra lights inside as it will be fully inclosed. Man wish when I put the metal building up for the Truck camper. That I had built it 50ft long . But its 35ft wide and 30ft deep. So just turning it into a shop. WOW...building costs must be WAY cheaper up there. Cheapest pole barn quote and it was a 16'X40'X12 was over $4000 20X36'X12' metal carport is less than $3000 installed Price my Neighbor Quoted me (Amish building maker) was $3. Sq ft so $3600. for the pole barn 16ft tall x 24 wide x 50ft long. Now this is open no sides. As Our plans are to inclose it next fall. And add full hook ups inside and outside also. Never know when someone may need to stay for a week or so. Pete

RE: Heading south the middle of the winter from upstate NY

Used to make that trip every week for a few years. Now back in the mid 80's, good weather forecast was not going to happen. Now days like was posted, find your window and go forth heading south. If you do find bad weather is catching up with you. Find a save spot to camp or sit for a day or so. Then leave out again when weather permits. Its nice on the Gulf Coast right now. Widows are open and fantastic fan is on. High may only be 65 but feels great. Pete

RE: Outdoor Televisions

Ours has a 32" LCD built into the slide. Flip up a door and the TV along with speaker and stereo is there. Love it and would hate to do without it again. http://www.noblerv.com/console/watermark_large.php?src=63357 Pete

RE: Used b&w companion hitch, things to look for?

There nice hitches, but will be taking mine out and putting my TS3 trail saver on this truck. Used the Companion this season, and like the no slack or movement like the other hitches. But its not my TS3 for sure. Pete

RE: How big of a truck for safe and comfortable towing?

I have about the same RV. 2012 Heartland Landmark Key Largo its weight shows 16,200 lbs. 41ft long. Ours has 2 acs, 3 flat screen tv's, Washer/Dryer, Auto sat dish, full body paint, 4 door fridge, Generator. As you can see its loaded and weights about as close to the 16,000 lbs as you can get. Pulled it first 2 seasons with a 2004.5 Chevy Crew Cab 4x4 short bed 2500HD. It pulled it but you know its back there. MPG was sad running I-40 East and back west in Tn. Averaged 7 MPG pulling the camper. But we did have high winds both ways. From New Orleans La to west Tn when we picked it up averaged 9,7 coming home with it. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2012%20Key%20Largo/pickwickleylargo1.jpg Now using a 2005 Chevy Kodiak C5500 crew cab with a transplanted 2000 model 5.9 cumminsn out of a Diesel pusher. I get around 10 MPG pulling it with ease. 5 hour trip now is relaxings. Before I was dead when we got home from the same trip. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2005%20Kodiak%20c5500%20Cummins%20powered/pickwick-1.jpg Pete P.S. Forgot to add being your not going to be moving it that much. You can get by with a 3500 short bed single wheel truck. But if you do get where your pulling all the time. Dual wheels are nice.

RE: 2014 Florida Statute on Double Towing

This discussion has been going on forever... There are post after post by people who have double towed in the State of FL with no ramifications. What is interesting is FL law has seperate definitions for trailer and fw a trailer cannot exceed 40 ft and a fw cannot have more than 400 sq ft of living space no mention of length. According to a large trailer dealer in Daytona, double towing with a FW is legal and if you ever travel I-75 you see it all the time. Also it is done by people visiting Walt Disney World pulling golf carts behind their FW and they are FL residents.:? So the "discussion", "disagreement" or what ever continues.:) SEE BELOW and ABOVE So right back the end of June. I lost count of the Double trailers in Fl we seen. Pete

RE: Lost hub cap

It's the front wheel, 5 slot, dome shape, stainless. No truck stops within at least 200 miles so guess I might be looking online. Thx for the suggestions. If your city in your side bar is right. Theres 19 fuel stops near you. Fuel/ Truck stops Pilots should have the normal ones. Wish they had the 19.5 ones for mine. Need only one and looks like I will have to buy a full set to get that one.

RE: TN Truck Camper Gathering - 2014 NOV 7-10 - amended OCT 30

Looking forward to it. Seeing your signature reminds me that I wanted to ask attendees to bring their USA flag and fly 'em in honor of our Veterans. Looking forward to meeting you Jeepers. Guys if your thinking about a Truck camper. And would like to learn first hand this is the way to do it. Enjoyed ours and wish I still had it. If time would allow I think I would make this one myself. But we will be in Chattanooga Tn that weekend. Had it on the books for a year. Enjoy and be safe. Pete Sorry to hear you won't be able to make it Pete. Was working on a project down at Pickwick today and tried to tell 'em I needed to make a site visit but they weren't buying it :R Man that is bad, they could let you visit for a while. Might even work in a striper fishing trip. Takes a lot of dollar bills some days. LOL

RE: F450 Fiver Bed - Will This Fit A TC?

Can you post a pic of the inside of the bed? I for one think with the tailgate mod your set for a truck camper. Should be someone near you with a T/C that would work with you to see if it would fit. I'm trying to figure out how to get one my Kodiak., Fuel tank would have go go on mine for sure. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2005%20Kodiak%20c5500%20Cummins%20powered/DSCN0384.jpg
