RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Having a great time with ToolGuy5 and his bride at Scenic Hills in Berlin. (This is where the last Ohio Old Fella Rally was held) We have had good weather and it has been very enjoyable. But.....All must come to an end. Will head home in the morning. Hope to get a little more camping in prior to Rally in September. Hope you all have a safe weekend.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I think Ava and Allison will rent a cabin for the rally and be among the folks attending. Okay I need to get moving and get ready to face the day. Hope everyone has a blessed day and I will talk with you later. Richard, It will be nice to see Ava and Allison again. It is nice they can come. Gary, Maybe is time to trade. :B Hope they can get that thing done before winter sets in.

RE: Wanting to change from STs to LTs..........

When you replace your tires, unless you want a partially aggressive tread on the camper, consider the XPS Michelin which are a rib tire and shouldn't scuff going around corners as the others. Just FYI Michelin owns BFG an Bridgestone. Good Luck in your search and Happy Camping.

RE: New fifth wheel, over weight for my 2006 Dodge 2500?

Bamacummins, If you check, I think you will find that the only difference in the rear axle between your and a 1 ton, is an extra spring leaf. Mechanically they are the same. Good Luck and Happy Camping

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Gary how are you doing with the camper? Still waiting Gary, Sure hope you can get better luck from Forest River than I had. I had a piece of $h.. dealer with no nerve to call Forest River about my leaking roof. Ended up trading it off and getting the Open Range.

RE: Class A, dull hood paint, what to do??

Some years Ford had problems with the paint. It seemed they tried to put paint and a clear coat mix. You could wax it to where it really shined but it didn't take long before it started to dull. About all you can do is to sand and repaint then clear coat. Good Luck with the problems. Hope you can get the results you want.

RE: Open ranger roam 337 vs keystone cougar

Pholman, We are going into our 6th year with our Open Range. We have had no trouble at all with the cable system on the slides. The cable system actually reduces the overall weight of the vehicle pushing over 800# per slide. I would not think twice about buying another one. Ours has been pulled over 25000 miles. Good Luck in your choice. Our contact with the factory has been excellent.

RE: F250 with 3.55:1 rear?

After the last trip over the Continental Divide, I've admitted my F150 is not enough truck. Towing 5100 lb dry bumper tow trailer. I found a very attractive 2011 F250 but it has the 3.55 rear end instead of the 3.73:1. Anyone have experience with this rear end ratio? Probably have to decide quickly. https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/10506895_10204271649500409_7104003982868996754_o.jpg width=640 Unless it is a 4WD, have you considered just having the gears changed in the rear end? Having to change 2 rear ends could possibly not be cost effective. When I had a 150 it had 3.42 gears. Had it changed to 3.90 Sure woke it up and didn't really effect the mileage much.

RE: Size truck to pull 16' - 20' travel trailer

I have always known more is better, but in the effort of economy will a 1/2 ton 350 engine be enough to pull a 20' travel trailer? Full time use of pulling the trailer will only be for about 6 months, then we'll use it for occasional weekend trips. We don't want to purchase an extra big pickup for that reason. Any thoughts would be appreciated. We are definitely not interested in a 4x4. Thanks, RB You should be just fine. I assume that you have a weight distribution hitch. Gee I guess someone should have told me back in the 70's that you couldn't pull a 20' TT with a 350 V-8. Ours was in an Olds Delta 88. This should give the weight police something to babble about. FYI in 2005 I pulled a 28' TT all over with my Ford F 150.

RE: 2014 Mesa Ridge Bunkhouse

For someone with over 25,000 miles towing an Open Range, I have had pretty good luck. Ours was one of tie first ones built and did have a little trouble with it. Dealer set up an appointment so I could take it to the factory to get repairs done. When we were there they were very good in the customer service area and fixed the problems. They asked if there was anything else and we ask them about a couple other things one of which was absolutely no fault of theirs and they gladly fixed them also. I would not be afraid to purchase another Open Range. Hope a little info from someone who has owned one will help. Good Luck in your choices and Happy Camping. To add to Sluggo's comment, one of my problems was delam on the back panel. They had problems with glue in the beginning. If you look at the newer ones they all have a fiberglass front and rear panels. They removed the back panel and installed a new one. Haven't had trouble since. All of our repairs were taken care of in one day.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Gary, This sounds like "Stand By, this could possibly be a Maybe" A documented case of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. Are you dealing with a government agency?? :B:B Maybe they lost their e-mails and threw away their computer. :B

RE: flatscreens

Go to one of the good electronics big box stores and look at the display tv's. Step off to the side and make sure you can still have a good picture and not turning negative (black). Find the one hyou like best and you should be good. The only thing I have heard is you don't want a plasma in the RV. Good Luck on your shopping and Happy Camping

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I was thinking along the same lines as Gary. Richard, if you know of a good cabinet maker, I'd have him come out and visualize the situation. I'm betting he could construct a slightly longer "mouth" to the existing garage, and then add some good-looking doors out of plywood with trim. Primed and painted with the good stuff, I'll bet it could end up looking like you planned it that way. :W Richard has a brick home with a single door 2 car garage. If you built out it would have to be possibly bricked and trimmed out to look nice and not an add on.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

"The girls are fine this morning as they look forward to another day of peaceful bliss. Some times I think it might be okay to be a dog. They are very well cared for with food, water, beds and a nice place to lay around during the day inside a home that is provided for them at no cost. At night they sleep in air conditioned comfort in the summer and heated during the winter. That is not a bad deal on anyone's scale." Richard, I am not sure that having to go outside to the backyard outhouse would be to pleasant day or night :B:B:B

RE: Height

X2. I think you will find the lower profile the 5er is the less headroom you will have in the bedroom area. We have a friend that has a very low profile 5eer and he can't stand in the bedroom. Good Luck and Happy Camping

RE: UltraLight 5th Wheel recommendation

Frank, take a look at the Open Range line. They do make 5eers that are 1/2 ton towable.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

HEY FOOF'SIt is only about 10 weeks away from the Old Fella Rally in Tennessee. Let's get hoppin and get those reservations in so this can be the biggest Rally ever. We need to get some more folks to sign up. Should be a great time and the weather should be good also. Last time I was in the area was in the 1990's and we were pulling our camper with our motorcycle.
