RE: 2016 F450 Setup

Hey Guys, I just ordered an F450 and I need to start thinking about the Superhitch and Torklift frame mounts. Where is the best place to buy these? I also plan on installing a set of the Upper Stable Loads and my wireless air compressor and air bags. I'll use the air compressor that is currently on my Ram. From Ram to the darkside....enjoy your new truck when it arrives!

RE: new to the forum

We took a trip this summer of 24 days to CO and UT for riding quads and with other trips like just this past weekend we camp almost 50 nights a year. If you like be outside almost all the time and traveling with no trailer a TC is great. The limit is camping in the winter when it gets dark and cold early, the TC does not have a recliner nor a TV so it can get boring sometimes just sitting at the dining table to read. If you don't have a truck yet, get the biggest one you can afford and park for work and at home. Then get the best match to your truck. really watch the weights so you don't have to go hog wild on new tires, rims, etc.... http://i.imgur.com/uQrZMOZl.jpg

RE: You had close call, scary moment, or accident, towing?

In my 2011 truck loaded heavy with truck camper and pulling our toy box trailer.....Coming in on I84 into Portland and taking the exiting Tunnel to get onto I205 to head south towards Salem and traffic was STOPPED in front of me. Slammed on brakes and barely was able to stop in time.... Since then they now have warning lights in the tunnel warning if and when there is stopped traffic (very limited sight). I also take that tunnel exit much much slower now. And our 2016 truck has much better GVW and brakes then our old truck. Camper and trailer w/brakes are the same but braking has improved a lot.

RE: What would You Order?

I won't buy a camper or a toy hauler without a built in genny. Just been too nice to have too many times to not have it. When dry camping I run it for making coffee in the morning without needed to pull out the Honda 2000. When traveling when HOT, we stop anywhere and can run the A/C while eating lunch. This summer we did a 24 day trip, I think it was over 95 degrees over half the time. When traveling when HOT, we can also stop, run the genny and leave the dog in the A/C. Our 2011 camper only has about 50 hours on the genny was we try to use it very little, but its been really handy. And we do have a Honda 2000 we use in the evenings when needed/wanted.

RE: What would You Order?

For resale and buying used I would be looking for a built in genny, oven and microwave. Not everyone but I think enough that it would matter.....

RE: What would You Order?

We currently have an 2011 Arctic Fox 1150...have toyed with upgrading now that I have a new 2016 Ram 3500. What would I do differently? Not much, likely end up with a new AF 1150 Drybath again... New would give us all LED lights. Electric rear awning would be nice. I would put a Fantastic Fan in the bathroom besides over the bed. I would add a side awning too. I would still do a built in genny. Great for making coffee first thing in the morning. I would still do the microwave and oven. We use the microwave enough to be handy and it works well as a bread box and holder for bags of chips. We use the oven for casseroles and side dishes. I would add solar panels.

RE: Winter Mods: Carpet Kit in My Wolf Creek and misc others

With Dogs, rain, snow and dirt a carpet like that would get dirty way too fast in my TC. We use 5-6 bathroom carpet mats to cover the floor, we just toss in them in the washing machine at the end of each trip. Easy to keep things clean that way. That's what we do too..... just wish there was NO factory installed carpet under the dinette. It is way to light colored.

RE: So would you go with a built in propane generator today?

So our NL has a generator compartment that will accomodate a Honda 2000. Thats the good news. Bad news is I am told the Honda will not run the A.C. Wondering what those of you that have had propane generators flet about yours and if you were to get a different TC, would you want the propane gene or not? Our 2011 Arctic Fox 1150 has the built in Onan 2500 and we use it, specially nice in the morning to make coffee without going outside. That said we typically use the built in jenny for the morning coffee and if we need to nuke something. Also great for on the roadside eating during the summer when you want A/C. We also carry a Honda 2000 for night time charge up the batteries and lights etc.... its great as it will idle for hours on very little fuel. The Honda stays in the Enclosed Trailer with the toys (RZR and Quads) and we always have the fuel for the toys anyways. I personally will only buy another camper, toyhauler or RV with a built in. Resale and convenience.

RE: Monday and got the blues

I've got 122 work days left. And yes, I'm counting. I'm only 40, so i've got like 20-25 years left. I am self employed so I can get out quite a bit, almost 50 nights a year. Most are long weekends but we did a 24 day trip in late July.

RE: Four Season Truck Campers with a Slide- really four season?

Our Arctic Fox 1150 has done just fine in cold temps to the single digits. The furnace does work a lot but we were comfortable. Most of the time for Western Oregon cold is getting to about 30 degrees.....we also travel every summer to Utah and CO and end up in 100 degree stuff for days, the A/C does well. If we were in the midwest or where it got to the negatives I would add some insulation to our camper.....

RE: How are you running down batteries so quickly?

When I camp alone I can live for days on batteries....add the family and the lights basically stay on most of the day, the heat is set higher and we usually run the Fantastic fan more, the stove fan more, etc... Generally I run the built in propane genny first thing in the morning to make two pots of coffee. When the family is with me I will hook up the Honda 2000 and let it charge up everything after dinner including cell phones and it allows me to not worry about any of the lights being on for 5 hours after the sun goes down...this weekend camping we were into the upper 30s at night so the furnace cycled often. I keep saying I will go with LED as bulbs burn out but still no bulbs have burned out on our 2011 AF. Next camper I'm sure will have LED standard and we will go with some solar....

RE: Buy a 2016 or 2017 Duramax??

I would go with the proven, tried and true 2015/16 truck. They have proven to be reliable, trouble free rigs, and get good fuel mileage. All this talk about more power/torque, when will enough be enough? Our grandparents pulled trailers over the Rockies with 6 cylinder, three speed sedans!! Good luck. True but that 1977 Dodge Aspen was dead at 100,000 miles.... and slow even with just a utility trailer. Also the travel trailers just keep getting heavier and heavier every year..... :)

RE: Buy a 2016 or 2017 Duramax??

Rumors keep swirling that Ford will have the Powerstroke to 1,000 for 2017.....I'm just watching with popcorn seeing who first announces their figures so the other can make sure they beat the other:) Love the power and towing wars. Will I ever need to tow 30,000#, nope but I like knowing that 18,000 toy hauler would be easy than.

RE: Buy a 2016 or 2017 Duramax??

Loaded up I'm about 23,000 pounds rolling down the road. I can totally use all the power going up hills here in Oregon let alone when we travel to Utah, Idaho and Colorado.

RE: 2016 Canadian LD Truck of the year

I find it amazing that we have a dozen or so of these contests by various groups and they all come up with different winners. In return we hear ads that say Ram can tow the most, Ford is now " North American Truck of the year" and now that ad from Chevy with the three crates. Congrats to everyone for being the best :W Truth!! I'm going to name the 2016 Ram 3500 the ''Groeneveld Truck of the year winner'' Hopefully Ram will start using it in ads. Groeneveld is my last name :)

RE: Buy a 2016 or 2017 Duramax??

990 Ft lb of torque?? My God these are pick ups not MD trucks My Ram has 900# of torque and I love it. I'm sure we will see 1,000# of torque soon, likely Ford first. Hopefully GM does a big increase. For me a huge huge power difference when loaded and towing between my 2011 with ''only'' 650# and my new 2016 with 900#.
