RE: Short bed or long bed?

Del Camper Excellent choice,you will like the long bed.I started with my existing short box 2006 2500 Dodge 4x4 quad cab CTG,it pulled and stopped the 5ver good. The payload was close to being maxed out...added super springs and also had a Pullrite Superglide,no chance of hitting the cab...good sturdy durable hitch. The 36 foot 5ver in my opinion was too much trailer for the truck. In 2008 I upgraded to a 2006 Dodge 3500 4x4 DRW long box CTG (payload to spare) and the difference was night and day.I have no problems in parking lots or drive throughs / maneuvering around town.The truck controls the camper with authority. The 2500 is my daily driver - 175k miles... the 3500 45k miles is my tow vehicle and also hauls the Lance truck camper. My neighbor down the street has lost 2 back windows and sustained cab damage while pulling his 5ver with a short box truck & non slider hitch. Enjoy your new long truck and peace of mind !!

RE: Poll: do you use the comfort station?

In over 16 years of rv camping we have never used a campground shower and don't intend to, although many are super clean. On occasion when walking the Collies early in the morning we may use the campground restroom if the urge arises and we're too far from our camper. I do use the cg restrooms while out mountain / offroad biking and take my bike in the restroom with me (large amounts of liquid consumed while biking) Our 5ver has a nice large shower which we prefer over a public bathhouse ... we also like our privacy.

RE: Stay away from BFG Commercial T/A Tires

My BFG Comm TA's were flawless for over a year... a major improvement over ST's.The trailer felt stable and didn't bounce around like it did on the several different brands of failed ST's in the past. MY BFG's were in the recall and were replaced with Michelin XPS Ribs LT 235/85R 16/E. My trailer was too long to maneuver in the tire companies parking lot so I pulled all 4 BFG's off and took them back loose for the swap out at no cost to me. I registered the new XPS Ribs (4) for warranty purposes on the Michelin site.

RE: Blue Ox Bed Saver Doesn't Work on Pullrite Superglide?

I have the Pullrite Superglide and have a bed saver I bought from Butch Services.This device is excellent in my opinion and is reasonably priced.It took me about an hour to install. Been using the same Pullrite Superglide since 2006. 2006 Dodge CTG 4x4 LWB QC 3500 DRW 2007 Montana Mountaineer 2000 Lance 1130

RE: Replacing sofa bed and recliners

We have a 36 foot Montana Mountaineer and removed the heavy sofa bed and 2 heavy recliners and table.We bought a good quality residential sofa to match the decor.Took awhile to find a sofa to fit/fill the entire rear area due to rear slide clearances.The wife got a new Lazy Boy recliner. Had to remove the sofa legs and stand it on end as we worked it through the door (tight fit) to keep from hitting the frig.The sofa is plenty long enough for me to stretch out or sleep on.With a cover on the sofa 2 full size Collies can sleep & dream quite well with room to spare. Other improvements were replacing the bedroom queen mattress with a residential pillow top queen firm mattress,also turned the dining table longways and removed 2 of the 4 dining chairs for more room.I replaced the desk chair with one of my old wooden office chairs which rocks and swivels. 2007 Mountaineer XPS Ribs 2006 Dodge CTD 4x4 LWB DRW QC 42K miles 2000 Lance 1130 Truck Camper 2 Rescued Collies 8 Yrs ago

RE: Superglide Install

I installed the hitch myself in 2006 and then again in 2008 in a different Dodge.Its a fairly easy install in my opinion.The first time it took about 5+ hours,I was in no hurry and made sure everything was right.The second installation took about 3.5 hours after removal from the 2500 Dodge. Just lay everything out and read the instructions and be sure you have a high quality 1 3/4 inch metal hole saw and a good electric drill (ac) The Dodge installation was easy due to the existing frame holes for the rear mounts (underbody) I've used the hitch for over seven years and have made only minor tension adjustments to the nylon block, along with routine maint.These are very durable hitches that lock fully around the pin.My hitch came from Tweetys also and was delivered free to my business address. Enjoy your new hitch.
