RE: Equalizer hitch with sway control

Having towed the exact same trailer with my 03F150, 07 Dmax classic and now our 12 F150, buy the Equa-lizer with the 4 point sway, set it and forget it. We have over 30k km of towing and have never had a problem with wind or semi's.

RE: 2011 Ford F150 and Travel Trailer

Your brothers right, not enough truck. If the delivered weight of your trailer is 7660 plus say around 1k of gear inside it puts you over 8500lbs ready to travel. The average tongue weight for trailers is around 13% which gives you at least 1100lbs in tongue weight (probably more)which counts against your trucks payload of 1440lbs. If you have 800lbs of passengers and stuff in the truck, you only have 640lbs left for the tongue weight. You also have to account for the weight of the hitch (~75lbs) 800+1100+75=1975 lbs 1440-1975= 535lbs over weight You're at least 500lbs over you trucks payload and that's probably a best case scenario. Since you already bought the trailer it would be a good idea to load it up and take it all to the scales. I have to agree

RE: Truck Tires

I prefer the Hankook ATM. It is a well designed AT tire that provides more siping then the other AT I have looked at. Given the fact your in MT, you get snow and the extra siping will be a bonus once the snow falls. 2nd choice would be the Toyo AT II http://www.hankooktireusa.com/Product/product.aspx?pageNum=1&subNum=1&ChildNum=4&FnCode=04 http://toyotires.com/tire/pattern/open-country-at-ii-on-off-road-all-terrain-tires

RE: What maker of WD hitch with sway control?

I've been using my Equal-I-zer since we bought our TT exactly 5 yrs ago. I have ~30k kms on our TT and haven't had one issue with the product. It has surpassed all forms of sway issue by what ever forces have been thrown at it, without incident.

RE: Help me choose a DSLR

If you are really serious about photography then spend money on the body but if you just want to take nice pictures then spend the money on the fastest lens (smaller F number in the name) - any DSLR body will be more than adequate. The glass is what makes the photo - the body simply gives you more options and control. Also a zoom lens is convenient but a major compromise on quality. A good one is really expensive and a cheap one is terrible. I have the Nikon D800 and a selection of prime lenses - the glass is good quality but to get closer to a subject I have to walk towards it. Because of the super high definition of the D800 sensor I can afford to crop the photos and retain the detail, but the cost of the lenses are significantly less than buying a zoom of the same quality. For example I have a 24mm F1.4 that cost me $180, a 50mm F1.8 for $120 and an 80m F2 for $140, all Nikon and bought used from eBay. So if you are looking for an expandable system that you can grow with then the Nikon D5200 would be a great starting point and a couple of prime lenses. If you want to stay with the convenience of the P&S but have more control over your pictures then I highly recommend the Sony NEX as others have mentioned. However, the camera does not make the photographer - as you move away from P&S then you will need to start to learn about the science of photography (there are some great DVDs out there). I agree, I run a Nikon D90 with a 18-200 3.5-5.6 Good starter lens but now I want to expand to more lenses, now that I have really learned what the camera can do.

RE: Garmin RV760's are now shipping

I can't get mine to import a map from MapQuest as I routed it. The GPS changes the route (in both Auto and RV mode). What up wit' dat? Teach I'm not familair with the new 760 but what I do is make my routes in Map Source, and save the file as a GPX. Now when your 760 is plugged into your computer, the computer should see it as an external HHD if you go into My Computer. Copy the GPX file and paste into what should be a GPX folder on the GPS. If you have a spot for a memory card and have added one, create a GPX folder there and put the file on the memory card.

RE: Am I crazy to be considering Goodyear Duratracs?

My first choice would be Hankook ATM, then TOYO Open Country AT II Unfortunately neither of them offer your size IIRC

RE: 1st Long Distance Tow Ecoboost with New TT

Curious to know what gear the truck seemed to like? Were you in M with t/h or D and t/h mode? Whats your trailer weight? We have a 4500km trip ahead of us in 12 days and curious to know. Thx

RE: Max being towed with an F150 Ecoboost

First pull this past weekend. Our truck pulled just under 2hrs to CG and was mostly in 5th gear at 2200rpm d/t wind. Coming home with a heavy cross wind the truck pulled in 4th 3200rpm until we changed direction then back to 5th and occasionally up into 6th. Our TT is close to 6000# loaded. In less then 2 weeks we head to CO for a ~4500km round trip vacation. I'll try and post some reports as we travel.

RE: Gotta hand it to them

The Colorado offers an optional V8 engine. Did not know that. I thought they where I-5, as my father inlaw just sold his recently.

RE: Gotta hand it to them

I'm more impressed they're doing it with a little Chevy Colorado with only a I-5
