RE: Setting Up Eaz-Lift WD Hitch

Did you read the directions? LOL. Once I did, i realized how badly the RV dealer guy set it up and wanted me to just get down the road. I ended up with the trailer just ever so slightly down in front, bars level to the ground and front axle 1/2'' higher than with no trailer. Ran over the scales and have good weight on the front axle too. Compared to the dealership, I lowered my hitch one notch, added a couple washers to the angle and moved the bars to one notch higher setting. Pulls much much better than my first round coming home from the dealer....dealer basically gave me no front axle weight...

RE: Real weights of an arctic Fox 1140?

Know that gvws are only a rough guideline for vehicle classes and do not delve into specific component strengths or their suitability in a certain combination. Look no further than 9900lb gvw 2500s that are no different than a 12000lb gvw 3500 save for the badge on the fender. So what 9,900 gvw 2500 is exactly the same as a 12k gvw 3500 other than the badge? EXACTLY the same! ????? If that's true why do you have ''Firestone Bags, Big Wig swaybar, homemade stable loads'' on your 2500?? Honestly I think you are being misleading and helping people justify their 250/2500 carrying a 5k truck camper... ''cause you just need to add some better wheels''.......

RE: Real weights of an arctic Fox 1140?

My 2011 Arctic Fox 1150 (pretty much the same with slight interior changes) is about 5,600# loaded up to camp with some water 1/2 full. This includes me, 90# dog, wife, and kid all in the truck. Front axle 5,250 Rear axle 9,350 Total 14,600. Empty weights are with just me. Front 5,250 Rear 3,500 Total 8,750 I subtracted some for the wife, kid, and dog. And this is why I went from my 2011 dually to my 2016 dually. For the 14k gvw rating. I would need to run with little to no water on board to stay at 14k perfectly. The truck does great with it. I did give serious consideration to going the Ram-5500 and flatbed route but I daily drive my dually as a CPA and business owner. if I hook up my enclosed trailer and toys I basically put the rear axle at 10,200k. Thanks to living in Oregon I can run over the scales anytime they are closed and check weights per axle :)

RE: Who all has more than one RV?

I have an AF811 and have been thinking about adding another RV, a small TT Curious if anyone else has here in the TC group more than one RV. 2011 Arctic Fox 1150 Truck Camper. 2017 Stealth WA2916 34' Toyhauler. Love both, both are great for two different types of camping. The toyhauler is new 2 months ago. Is great for riding and camping in one spot for several days. We still have our 20' enclosed trailer for riding and camping with the TC as we did for years.....TC is great for small parks and exploring and camping on the move, like 3 spots in 4 or 5 days.

RE: First Toy Hauler looking for informed input

http://i.imgur.com/tac5GgKl.jpg Another option, a little redneck, but you just need a gooseneck and you can select the length or do a short 5th wheel on top with axles removed if you want more room than the TC.

RE: How long is to long?

I'm assuming your 35' bumper pull is the entire trailer. I have a 35' bumper pull toyhauler (Stealth WA2916) and on Forest Service roads I'm more watching for the overhead trees than anything else. But yes we've had to adjust some of our camping sites to make sure we grab the longest ones. This setup is only 5 feet longer than our Truck camper plus enclosed trailer but the toyhauler cuts the corners much more when cornering. Note that we are (so far) keeping our TC for when we want to fit in the small spaces and not take our toys. Like Glacier NP in a couple weeks.

RE: Time for new daully rubbers!

Depends on what you need and want... If you need a little more traction for forest service roads and the triple snowflake rating for passes in the winter I have had good luck with Goodyear Duratracs and now the new version BFG KOA All Terrains. Otherwise I'd go with the Michelins mentioned above.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Just filled up yesterday, newly branded Mobile Station (was the old Shell station a week ago) Diesel in Keizer Oregon, 2.39. Now that I can fill up to 85 gallons in my two tanks I'm really going to watch the prices around my area. Amazing how much difference across town or the next towns price can be.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

For the toy hauler! Got home this morning at 3AM from running to Idaho Falls, Idaho. Home of Titan Tanks and getting the 55 gallon replacement tank and 30 gallon spare tire tank installed on my 2016 Ram 3500 for future adventures. 85 gallons of diesel now and still have the truck bed. :) What are you doing with your spare tire now? It is loose in the truck bed now. For truck camper duty I do have a hitch rack I can put on the front or rear hitches. Likely fab something up soon for the front hitch for TC duty. When hauling the toyhauler the bed will have plenty of room for the spare even with a quad in it. Main goal was max fuel for max range and keep the bed of the truck free for the truck camper or quads. (otherwise a 100 gallon tank would have been easy to do)

RE: 2017 Stealth WA2916

Looks very nice, and one of the ones we are seriously considering. May I ask, which dealer did you use, and would you recommend them? Forest River lists 2 Stealth dealers in WA, Baydos Trailer Sales 4819 20th Street East Fife, WA 98424 and I-5 Uhlmann RV 1001 SW Interstate Ave Chehalis, WA 98532 I shopped pretty hard at both Power RV near Salem, OR. And ended up buying from Curtis Trailers in Portland. Both places treated us well was just a matter of the best price and Power RV just had one of what we wanted with options we did not want. If your in the NW don't forget to call the Portland dealers or even Spokane and Boise, ID area.....you can save thousands and get exactly what you want.

RE: 7.3L to 6.7L comparison

The newer trucks are amazing on power, towing capacity, and price! My 2016 with the camper on is very likely faster than my 2005 running empty. LOL. And no, I won't go back!

RE: 2017 Stealth WA2916

A couple DESIGN things we've found: 1. All the roof vents are nice, but I can only reach two of them on my tippy toes. My wife can't reach any of them. 2. Bathroom fan is a button in the roof vent, I can barely reach it, my wife can't. 3. Fresh city water hookup is right above the hot water heater. angle the hose correctly so it doesn't get to hot. 4. The living area lights are all on one switch by the rear door. Should have a switch by the bedroom too. Almost stepped on the dog once already. 5. Fresh water fill tank and black tank flush attachments are on the passenger side/curb side which seems wrong to me. Everything should be on the same side. 6. Hot water in the shower ran out very quickly even for this bald guy. 7. Water pressure using the onboard pump and battery power is very weak. 8. I'd give up some bathroom/kitchen/living area to get a real queen bed not the short one provided. We might just do it anyways. Just for those interested. Still love the trailer.

RE: 2017 Stealth WA2916

This is what it looks like with the slide in. You can use the bathroom and get to the fridge with the slide in. http://i.imgur.com/SAga3jUl.jpg Here is the fridge open with the slide in. http://i.imgur.com/styHvhll.jpg You could even use the sink and stove with the slide in. But good look getting anything out of the pantry cabinet.

http://i.imgur.com/9K4WMmrl.jpg On our way to Montana, camped at BumbleBee Campground in ID. http://i.imgur.com/sKvlZAml.jpg Starting to get use to the size of the trailer. We are now about 5 feet longer than our TC and Enclosed trailer combo.

RE: 2017 Stealth WA2916

Nice trailer! Floor plan looks great. Is the fridge accessible without opening the slide? How does your dually pull it? The truck pulls it like a dream. This is only 1/3 its towing capacity. We just went to Plain, MT for family reunion and I could run as fast as we wanted up hill. 1150 miles 136.67 gallons equals 8.4 mpg. Ha ha. About the only thing I need to do is get more weight on the front axle from the weight distribution hitch. Will adjust more for next weeks trip to Medford, OR to camp.

RE: 2017 Stealth WA2916

Nice trailer but I have to ask given the dually why not go 5er? A couple main reasons: A lot of the nice toy haulers 5ers were much more expensive. Like 70K compared to the 40k we spent. Or more. I know we liked one until we saw the 100K msrp, lol. Space, A lot of the big 5er toyhaulers have small garages. We are hauling a RZR and a quad. We step into a 4 seat RZR soon I can still put the quad in the back of the truck. Or two quads on the truck with a rack or DiamondBack Truck Cover. This toyhauler is open, with just over 16' of space before you hit anything. parking space at home. I have just over 65' on my side yard behind my gate. My enclosed trailer already takes about 26' of it. (Truck camper is if front of the garage) This toyhauler pretty much fills in the rest with some room to walk around, behind, and between the two trailers. Also i just didn't think I needed another 3-5K of trailer weight to do what we wanted to do. No offense to the 5th wheel guys, we're just trying not to spend to much and get what we wanted.

2017 Stealth WA2916

Nothing like bringing home a new baby over the weekend. http://i.imgur.com/CpTNHBKl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/XKQveN3l.jpg We had the axle flip done and don't think I'll ever have to worry about scraping anything off the trailer. 2 feet of rear stabilizer clearance http://i.imgur.com/LWpzA5Xl.jpg and 16 inches of clearance for the lowest thing, the drains. http://i.imgur.com/BqUlXvFl.jpg Heading out this week with it, can't wait. We did try everything out at the house and I think the only thing not working right is the DVDs cut shortly after 1 minute. We still have the truck camper for the smaller campgrounds and quick trips.
