RE: Lance 1191

I too will be interested in any information from the OP. I am not so much interested in the weight/truck issues but more on the safety and handling issues. I would like the OP's impression of how it handles in panic type stops or long downhill grades or sway in quick sideways movements.

RE: Lance 1191

I do not know if this is of value but here is the information for my 2005 1191. You can see from the figures that the ready to go weight will be over 5000 lbs. This is the sticker on the outside. It shows a "dry" weight of 4144 lbs. http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r210/RenoAl/campertag2.jpg This sticker is from an inside cabinet and shows a weight of 4449 lbs. It includes most of the options. http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r210/RenoAl/campertag1.jpg This image shows the weight of the truck with a full tank of diesel. http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r210/RenoAl/camper/camper1.jpg This image shows the weight of the camper on the truck mostly ready to camp. You would need to add my wife, dog,food and beer and misc. items say 500-700 more pounds. http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r210/RenoAl/camper/camper2.jpg I have only seen one 1191 on a SRW truck. Below is a picture. The owner said he purposely did not want a DRW truck. The modifications he made, if memory serves, were new rims and 19.5 tires, upgraded springs, air bags and shocks and sway bar. He said it cost more than a dually when he was done but he was happy. Here is a picture. http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r210/RenoAl/Canada%202010/SANY015311.jpg

RE: Question about GVW Rating on Door

GVWR is simply a device created by the manufacturers to keep their customers arguing among themselves. Looks like it is working ;)

RE: Full On Panic Stop at 18,000 Pounds & 6% Grade

Yep. Not a bear but some nitwit driver. Pulled out in front of me coming down the east side of Carson Pass highway CA 88. Went from 55 to 5 mph. 3500 Dodge dually + Lance 1191 + 3000 lb fishing boat full of fish and beer maybe 3500lbs. Brown stuff in shorts and on seats. Nitwit driver never knew I was there.

RE: Lance 1191 on Dodge Ram 3500 DRW

We have an 1191 on a 2005 Dodge DRW (see sig.). I have added: - sway bar - air bags with in cab control - Rancho 9000 shocks (manual control - Stable loads. 90,000 miles over all types of terrain. About 10-15% pulling a 3000 lb. fishing boat. No problems, handles well. Go for it you will thoroughly enjoy it.

RE: Truck suspension with heavy TC - not quite there yet

Jeff, I have an 1191 on a Dodge 3500. Here is what I have. 1) Sway bar - helps with side to side sway 2) Rancho 900xl. I keep the fronts at 5 and adjust the backs from 0 to max.as all the weight of the camper goes on the rear. 3) Firestone airbags with in cab control. Adjust air pressure as needed to correct for road and wind conditions. Lower for bumpy rough roads or reduce windward side to " lean" rig into the wind. Also helps leveling in campsites. 4) Stable loads. Originally did not have them but find them useful to get the truck suspension engaged especially and rough or bumpy roads I have 90,000 miles on this rig about 10-15% towing a 3000lb fishing boat. I do not have any bottoming out issues.
