RE: King bed measurements in Montana 3725RL

Go over to the Montana Owners Club fofum, join the forum, and ask your question there. I know the are some there who own that model.

RE: what is reasonable profit for the dealer

..................l, I made an offer, and was pretty much shown the door. No counter offer, no haggle, very much unlike any negotiating I had done for a car or truck. .......... The dealer probably has enough people coming in with lowball offers that he instinctively knows when an offer is so low as to be not worth pursuing for whatever he has to sell.

RE: what is reasonable profit for the dealer

Best you can do is compare prices for similar units between more than one dealer. Even with cars and trucks and knowing the invoice price you will never know exactly what profit they make. With an RV you will never have any idea no matter how they present the numbers.

RE: Hitch recomendation

I have the Ford/Reese Elite hitch. I don't like it. It is very hard to unhitch. Jaws don't seem to open far enough to release properly. Mine is at the dealer now waiting to be repaired or replaced. In hindsight I wish I went with the B&W. One thing about the Reese Elite wrap around latch is that when you get ready to unhook, you need to put the truck in reverse and let it bump back easy against the pin to relieve any pressure against the latch so it can unwrap. Then it is very easy. Had the same issue with my previous Pullrite that also had the wrap around latch. Once you figure that out, there is no problem.

RE: 2015 V6 truck comparison

The lower payload is for the 4x4. Apparently all the others are 4x2.

RE: Hitch recomendation

I have a Reese Elite (using the puck system) and love it. The Reese Elite has a wrap around jaw that latches the king pin. I think the ones you have heard about dropping were the older clam shell type hitches. I don't know that the Reese Elite is any better or worse than the B&W (or Pullrite, or Curt, or etc.). Don't know that you can go wrong with any of the newer name brand hitches.

RE: Ford 6.4 or 6.7?

Check local dealer's special advertised prices on their web sites. I noticed one local dealer here offering $13,000 off sticker on 2015 Superdutys. That puts a new 2015 (not loaded with all the bells and whistles) at just over $50,000. If you can find a left over 2014 they will probably do even better than that.

RE: 2014 F-150 with 300 miles - is this a good deal?

300 miles is really nothing. But you should be able to buy a NEW truck for invoice price plus/minus a $100 or so and further minus any rebates that may (or may not) be available. Ask the dealer what the invoice price for that truck is and gauge it from there. And ask about current factory rebates. If he will not tell you, then find out for yourself on nada.com, kbb,com, edmunds,com, etc.

RE: Indoor pools

We don't use the pools so I don't pay much attention to them, but I have noticed a few do have them. The ones I can specifically remember at Ft Amarillo RV Resort in Amarillo, TX and Guadalupe River RV Park in Kerrville, TX. Seems there were others, but can't remember exactly where. Note that these are typical private RV parks, not "campgrounds" as such.

RE: Ford 6.4 or 6.7?

I have no experience with the 6.4. I do have a 2012 6.7. I would go with the 6.7. Great power. Reasonable fuel mileage. Only real complaint I have read about the 6.4 is poor fuel mileage.

RE: The mysteries of Horsepower and other things explained

Good try. But this has been tried many times before and it always ends up with the same arguments. I see it as always ending up with others providing reasoned logic clarification. OK, so now we have 5 pages of reasoned logic clarification. And it is all so much clearer.

RE: Ford Powerstroke

Be aware that ricatic had a bad experience with Ford. Therefore everyone should avoid Ford. There have been SOME reports of people having some problems. But at the same time it seems the vast majority are very happy with their 6.7s. My 2012 F350 6.7 has been great. Plenty of power to tow that 5er.

RE: The mysteries of Horsepower and other things explained

There seems to be a lot of confusion about the mysteries of engines by some on this site so I will post some links and add some text to try and clear some of this up. ......................... Good try. But this has been tried many times before and it always ends up with the same arguments.

RE: goose ball hitch

Some 5th wheel manufacturers will void their warranty if you use a gooseneck adapter. So that tells you their position on it. But many people do use the adapters with no apparent problem. So it becomes a personal decision. Reese does make the Goosebox adapter that supposedly is acceptable to some manufacturers as it has an air bag and shock absorbers. But it is more expensive.

RE: Verizon vs AT&T

We had AT&T but switched to Verizon several years ago due to AT&T customer service issues. No regrets. Have found Verizon to have better coverage than AT&T, at least in our travels.

RE: well I filled out an adpotion application today

Hurray for you. Lots of dogs that need their forever homes. Adopted an 8 yr old Golden and she lived to age 14. Adopted another at age 6, now age 9. Both great dogs.

RE: All these questions on routing???

More than once I have taken the obvious route from point A to point B and subsequently found the road conditions very very bad. Maps and routing software can't tell you that. Personal experience from someone who has recently been there can.

RE: Asking for suggestions on Grand Teton/Yellowstone Trip

Are you looking for FHU sites, minimal hookups, dry camping, or don't care?

RE: 69S from Sherman to I-20?

US 69 is a good road. Mostly 2 lane from Denison to east of Sherman to Mineola, then 4 lane to I-20. 69 does not actually go thru Sherman, but you can get over to 69 via US 82 in Sherman. But very little traffic. And wide shoulders on the 2 lane. A few small towns with lower speed limits. Watch your speed. But a nice drive and definitely a good way to bypass Dallas.
