RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

I'd say two options for you, go east and come down HWY 97 east of the mountains and go as far south as you want, maybe Crater Lake? Lot's of places to explore. The Gorge, The Dalles, Bend, Sunriver, and futher points until Crater Lake. Other option is come down I5 until Longview and then had west and south. Exploring HWY 30 along the Columbia River, then heading south into Yamhill Wine Country, hit McMinnville, Newberg, Dundee, Mist, Veronia, Corvallis on HWY 47 and 219 etc...campgrounds to hit Champoeg, LL Stub Stewart, and Silver Falls. when you want to go home just cross over to I5 and head North.

RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

I love hitting the Oregon coast even this time of year. Like Beverly Beach, South Beach, or the Astoria area.

RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

bedlam - could you post a bunch of pics and a review of your new truck when you get a chance. Specially interest in the flatbed, storage, trailering stats. What you did is excactly what I've been thinking of doing since I have a heavy camper and tow 8k+. Thanks.

Towing wreck - overloaded hitch

Please people follow the rules and don't run over loaded. First article I've seen like this. Surprised it does not happen as often as this. http://www.pressdemocrat.com/news/2960844-181/chp-hitch-in-fatal-crash

RE: DRW regrets?

For those of you which have gone from a SRW truck to DRW, do you wish you had just gone with a lighter TC and stayed with a SRW? No. I wonder though if I should have gone with a Ram 4500 Flatbed instead of ''just'' a Ram 3500 dually.

RE: 2015 Ram Trucks

I'm seeing these on dealer lots. Any one already have one at home? Why the 2015 over 2014? Not yet, but I have the itch for the fresh smell of new leather....looking at gearing and GVW numbers way to much lately.

RE: 2006 Ford 6.0 Turbo diesel ???

If only it was just keeping the coolant clean...... I had issues with the FICM, alternators that liked to kill batteries and the entire front end and brakes...plus the EGR stuff. And what made it worse was Ford's attitude and the crappy dealership service. Now I'm on my second Ram/Cummins truck.

RE: Supersprings with Airbags

I've got the SS and airbags on my truck. I love the SS on there for just carrying the weight of the camper. I really don't use the airbags unless I'm towing now too.

RE: Truck for Eagle Cap 1165?

I am smiling. You're smiling now because you didn't get the gas bill yet. If you can afford the truck, the fuel bill shouldn't matter....

RE: 2006 Ford 6.0 Turbo diesel ???

We HAD!! a 2005 Ford Excursion with the Diesel 6.0..... that led us to switching to a 2005 Ram 3500 with Cummins and now a 2011 Ram 3500 with Cummins. I'd go back to a 6.0 only if the price was good enough to right away get the motor ''Bulletproofed'' or being able to comfirm that it was already done.

RE: windy towing

Hey guys, I'm scheduled to leave Mason City, Iowa today to drive to Knoxville, Illinois and it is windy. We have an F-350 dually pulling 40 feet of fifth wheel weighing 16000 pounds. The winds are from the NW at 19mph gusting to 28. Tomorrow, the winds are predicted to be 13mph and gusting to 22. The winds would be at our back most of the way. For about 20 miles in Iowa, the winds would be at the back ans drivers side when we are heading straight east. Would you pull my rig today or wait until tomorrow? We'd like to leave because this storm is bringing some cold weather. that's the typical wind on any day driving down the columbia river gorge on I-84. Wouldn't worry a bit. When wind hits 40 then I start to notice it. about 45 is time to find a place to pull off. Beat me to it. I was just going to say the Gorge, that is normal :)

RE: Need to figure out how to haul my toys and my wife.

We had the same issue, two quads and a RZR. Can't afford a diesel pusher so we went Truck Camper and 20' enclosed trailer we already had anyways. The other option is put a custom rack on the back of your pickup for hauling the RZR or quad and then go with a bumper pull Toyhauler for the other toy. Seen several setups that basically put the front tire of the RZR on top of the cab of the truck using long ramp type rack setup.

Diamondback Truck Cover - ATV Hauling

So does anyone have a Diamondback truck Cover? Want to here the good and bad. How is it holding up? Worth it? My concern has been they seem to be rated at 1600# on top. Well two full size Polaris Sportsman quads would be right at this. Also any leaks in heavy rain? For all the ads in the magazine I've yet to see one in person on the West Coast.

RE: Truck Camper Magazine

Even though we have a truck camper. We do Subscribe to Motorhome and Trailer Life. Motorhome never has a TC in it but they do have trip ideas and general camping articles we find useful. Trailer Life does usually have a Truck Camper Review maybe 4 or 5 times a year. Plus trip ideas, vacation spots, and general camping/RVing articles we find it useful. I read the mags and rip out vacation idea articles for future use. Then there is the website Truck Camper magazine and all the online forums.

RE: New Tire help...

I run Goodyear DuraTrac on my dually. I'm at about 40,000 miles on the set and should still be good for this winter. I needed traction tires with the snowflak so I choose these. We camp a lot off of forest service roads so need to be able to deal with a little mud and muck. And a lot of rock, ice and snow.

RE: Electric Heater vs Winterizing

Keizer, OR speaking here. I never ''winterize'' as we use the camper year round. I do keep the water tanks all drained during the winter. I keep the camper hooked up to electric all the time at home. If we are dipping close to freezing I set the furnace at the minimum to keep the fan blowing into the basement. I then have a space heater i set at about 55 only when its freezing at night. We freeze about 45 nights a years. A Cold streak for us is the 20s. This way i just need to add water and we can leave.

RE: Getting camper on lifted truck.

Blocks and he could also air down his tires if you have a compressor handy.
