RE: Upgrade from Pop Up????

Get the travel trailer and you won't regret it. We loved our pup when we had it but now having the extra room inside when it's pouring out along with air conditioning made it worth the extra $$ and lower MPG. Also not having to break down camp in the pouring rain anymore and knowing when you get home you have to open it up again to let it dry out is another BIG plus! ;)

RE: Just got some bad news, could use some perspective.

I would honestly wait and get what you want. Don't settle.. You still have a vehicle to use until the new one comes in. Daughter still growing, firewood and supplies add up fast in the bed!

RE: Average fuel mileage on a 35' with the V10??

But seriously....if fuel mileage is your main concern, you might want to reconsider getting a Class A motorhome... just sayin......fill it up when it hits a quarter-tank and have fun!!!! Not concerned, mostly just curious. I know the V10 is a great motor but I also know they like to drink. :B I want to take longer trips with the family and a class A seems like it will make the long drives a bit more enjoyable compared to my current setup...

RE: Average fuel mileage on a 35' with the V10??

My sold '11 Bounder 36', avg'ed 7.9 over 12k miles but it was a struggle to get that. Pulling a small trailer and 800 Lbs motorcycle. Knew it would get worse pulling a car. It had to downshift every hill. Bought a DP, 11k lbs heavier and pull a car, now get 9. And I travel faster, and hills? no problem.A DP will be the move we make later on down the road.. The kids are still young and we only average about 6 trips a year during the summer. I cant see spending the extra $$ on a diesel right now when it will sit most of the time.

Average fuel mileage on a 35' with the V10??

We have been looking around for a slightly used Class A with the V10. I have narrowed it down between the Tiffin Allegro 35QBA and the Georgetown 351DS. We also plan on towing a Jeep Wrangler behind it. Just wondering what kind of fuel mileage I can expect with this motor?? Any feedback will be very much appreciated! Kevin

RE: First time pulling a fifth wheel.....ever.

Congrats on the new addition! So honestly, how does it compare to towing a travel trailer? I'm about to make the switch to a fifth wheel too,but not anywhere near the size of yours. LOL! I've been towing a travel trailers for years but never a fifth wheel. I'm curious to see if there is much of a difference. Best of luck with it! Kevin

Awning cleaning

Looking for the best product to use and the best way to clean my awning?? I tried using a over the counter cleaner and wash brush but it didn't do much. With the amount of flexibility in the fabric I just can't seem to add enough pressure to get it clean... Any feedback will be very much appreciated! Kevin

RE: Question about GVWR.

I don't understand my trucks ratings as well.. My F350 has a GVWR- 9900lbs GAWR- REAR- 6830lbs Front-5200lbs. I just had my truck weighed at a Cat Scale Front axle- 4640lbs Rear axle 3000lbs That is 7640lbs total which leaves me 2260lbs for payload. but according to the scale slip I still have 3830lbs available on my rear axle...

RE: Uh...O Look what I did

RE: V10 or 7.3 power vs tundra 5.7

If you want the V10 look at a 2005 and newer. They made 362hp/457tq

RE: V10 or 7.3 power vs tundra 5.7

In 2000 the HP and torque of the V10 were higher then the 7.3....but you need to let it rev.It made more Hp not torque. From 2000-2004 the V10 made 310hp/ 425tq. The 7.3L made 235hp/500tq. The key factor is the turbo diesel really wouldn't be affected with the high elevation like the naturally aspirated V10 would...

RE: V10 or 7.3 power vs tundra 5.7

Out of the three I think your best bet is the 7.3L. And I'm not saying that just because I'm driving one. A few bucks for a tuner and you will be making good power. Naturally aspirated engines have to work alot harder in the mountains because they are starved for air.. Also if you get the 7.3L or V10 you jump to a 3/4 or 1 ton truck...
