RE: Timbrens ride quality?

I’ve had them on two different trucks and thought they were great Smooth ride unloaded Went to air shocks on current truck but wish I’d stayed with Timbrens

RE: Gas vs Diesel for Towing a Fifth Wheel!!!

Define "Better" and tell us details about the 5th wheel. With modern engines, the gas engines are good for 200-250k miles with minimal work and diesels are drastically more complicated with computer systems and electronic controls that are prone to failures. So modern technology makes the gas engines better But diesels less reliable?

RE: 36 ft FW vs 30 ft TT backing

Like others we have had both, TT reacts a lot faster Use the “Z” maneuver to put wheels near the inside corner We have a slider and it does make the fifth wheel react faster in the rear position but very seldom needed it.

RE: Montana

We had a 3455 which was almost the same floor plan. Snowbirded in it for a few years. Very few problems and enjoyed the floor plan.

RE: How not to drive a motorhome

Guess CDL drivers must be more compliant where Flip is. Every time I’m on the interstate there are plenty of big rigs pushing slower vehicles to try and get them out of the lane.

RE: Questions about "Closed" topics

Every time someone new comes here and post something that's been discussed before you'll always have that one person that tells him to run off and "Google" it Or “Use the search function “ If folks don’t care to read a previously discussed thread they don’t have to open it.

RE: Mercedes Sprinter chasis

OP here The Duramax in my GMC makes good power about 200 more ft/lbs of torque than the Mercedes, So I was really just looking for people’s opinions after extended use of this platform, and it seems like owners are more than satisfied. Thanks for the input.

Mercedes Sprinter chasis

Test drove a Tiffin on this chasis and it handled well, but it seemed like it needed all 180+ horsepower to get up to speed on the interstate. Is this enough power out West in the mountains? Headwinds? Any shared experiences would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Jack

RE: Keystone owners heads up

Had the same problem with our 2011 Montana Found it when the carpet was soaked. Plastic trim leaked and plastic bottom cover did not drain of course. Checked a friends Montana and he had the same problem but no damage yet.

RE: Turned away,told me they dont accept truck campers

We were also told not to show up with a truck camper somewhere in central Fla (laBelle ? Maybe) No problem we just skipped the whole area.

RE: Heartland 5th Wheels

We have a 2017 Big Horn 3750FL. After 5 months of snow birding we are happy with the choice and would get another. The floor plan was the biggest factor in our choice. Friends had good things to say about their recent models so we changed from a Montana

RE: Fantastic Fan Rain Sensor NG

I am installing a new one in a class C. I've read the reviews on-line. From what I've seen, our old fan from 1998 was truly fantastic. The newer designs have slightly different (poorer) performance. My new installation will be the 3 speed thermostat version WITHOUT the rain sensor. Alas, this is yet another product the the manufacturer is slowly taking downhill... The downhill spiral begins every time these small family owned businesses get sold.

RE: Front living rooms

The bedroom on our FL3750 is raised two steps giving you an incredibly large amount of storage in the two pass throughs underneath The front AC is ducted and works fine A sofa on either side and two recliners facing the 55" tv

RE: Dry bath v/s wet bath

A dry bath means the bath will take up more space because it will have a separate shower and toilet area. That in no way means either are spacious. In fact a wet bath is usually more spacious because both functions are combined in the same space. That's my read on the subject. No dry bath in our future, the wet bath just seems so much larger.

RE: Front living rooms

We have a '17 Big Horn FL and after 5 months of snow birding enjoy it. The living room is large, dining area is a bit smaller Being elevated makes for a bit more privacy in LR Plenty of storage. 2 more pass throughs under BR

RE: Ducted AC return air in fivers

We have a 2017 Big Horn and it is a lot quieter than any other camper we have had both in AC mode and in heat mode.

RE: The ride compared to truck camper

We have both also, the truck camper is my first choice for ride and convenience

RE: question on changing how dinette table lowers

The table in our AF truck camper is the push down style. While I can't answer your questions on cost/conversion ease, it is more stable than the post style and incredibly easy to use.

RE: Owning 2 RV's

Two here also The fifth wheel just seemed like overkill for short trips. Now we snowbird in the fifth wheel and travel in the truck camper. So much easier to be spontaneous with the truck camper we are Always stopping to check out something interesting.
