RE: New to 5th wheels bought my first toy hauler

Congrat's on the new TH.....great looking unit. :) I think most triple axle TH's these days require a 3500 DRW. Since you haul other trailers and if you are at 30K on the trailer that is way over even the max trailer rating for new GM 3500's. Maximum conventional trailering capacity of 19,600 lbs Maximum fifth-wheel trailering capacity of 23,200 lbs I have driven DRW trucks for daily drivers for many years and it is something you get used to.

Great looking truck. I'm sure that would be the minimum sized truck for the MS in your signature.... a quick look says the trailer has a 17,500 GVWR.

RE: Solar system advise needed

Great advice as usual above. The best thing to do is figure out your needs and your budget. A few years ago with help from many here on the forum I was never sure how much power I needed so, went with more batteries and more panels than I needed. I have not regretted it a bit. Except for Las Vegas last summer have not used the generator at all. Also, switched to LED lights which reduced the power consumption considerably from the 22 40 watt halogens.

RE: Solar system advise needed

Check out this shipping from Canada. With the dollar 22% weaker than the USA dollar its going to get more expensive.

RE: New Tow Vehicle

Randy, Congrat's on the new truck. The 2015's are quite a step up from previous years with fit and finish and how quiet they are. Happy trails.

RE: built in generators

I agree on the Genturi ..... I use it on our Onan 7500 watt Quiet Diesel genset. I would never go back to portables. I have a couple of Honda 2000's that were great but the built in is so much more convenient.

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n255/donrumsey/Haulmark%20Coach/CleanAndConnectedRoadSide.jpg Love the toterhome! The Bose Ride seats take a little getting used to but, the 500 miles I have put on so far have been very enjoyable. My DW has back and neck issues and can't go that far if we are using the one ton dually. These seats will let her ride in comfort instead of pain and having to wear her neck brace. When she first got used to the air seats in our last truck (Freightliner Sport Chassis) she was able to go about 6-8 hrs. These should be even better. Also, this truck lets her just go to the back a lie down if she is getting tired. I like driving and can put in the long hours if need be. I will give some more input on the seats in a month or so as we should be doing about 8000 miles.

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Went out to where I store my trailer and did a test for hitch height and the ITBC that is now good for elec/hydra disk brakes on the trailer. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-pcZ-aUMCjyI/U6zbg2BttKI/AAAAAAAAHZQ/OQp5oPLe8RI/s640/20140626_190324.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-rodQEsrcFGw/U6zbduQ8U7I/AAAAAAAAHY4/lSgISPTpggE/s640/20140626_190355.jpg

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Couple nice trucks there RickSo, hows the new trucks Hi Jordan, I have only used the Volvo for one weekend without the new deck installed. The deck has been set back for build time and I may not get much time to use it this summer. It does work very well hauling the Toy Hauler and just idles down the highway @ about 1100 RPM at 110 KPH. It will be the main tow vehicle once completed. The GMC is just a couple of days old and am having a 25K fifth wheel hitch installed tomorrow. It will be used to move the trailer and short trips if were heading to more remote locations that the 4x4 is needed. I really like how quiet the new GMC is while driving.

RE: Post your tow vehicle pics here

Here is a picture of the Volvo hooked up to the Excel Wild Cargo and the 2015 GMC 3500 Denali HD. The Volvo still has to get the new Smart Car deck installed but worked great last weekend. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-jOKKOQaqLc0/U55R5wHwIMI/AAAAAAAAHSg/BB9dUyC-eGk/s640/20140615_141041.jpg https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-YTabQkNTN1E/U55R2aSA3FI/AAAAAAAAHQk/9AZrmL-4tzI/s640/20140615_141157.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-obBbVT8esJ4/U6iE3ThlJzI/AAAAAAAAHXo/tYwWE53XMOs/s640/20140623_134505.jpg

RE: Finally made the switch - class A to toyhauler

Welcome! Congrat's on the move over to this side. :)

RE: Luxury Living Quarters Hauler?

Excel's Wild Cargo? Definitely a nicer coach, but still too RV and limited.....already have a 10' garage and the Wild Cargo's 10'6 garage is too small. Found Becker Trailers on a search and they might fit the bill....Becker Custom Trailers ....and I'm thinking inverted 5th wheel instead of gooseneck. If you need a longer garage they will build it bigger if needed. That's what they told me when I asked.

RE: Signaling truckers it's ok to change lanes

I always flash high beams during the day when getting passed to let truckers in safely and flash the hazards three times at night. Also, flash the hazards three times to say thanks when getting the flash to move in while passing. Our rig is 71ft long and appreciate the courtesy of other people on the road. I actually get a lot of truckers on the road calling me on the CB to ask questions about the RV and where were heading.

RE: Texas registration for TH

Are the tags/plates price including insurance or is your insurance separate? Here in Alberta, Canada (personal) trailer plates are one time charge $109.00 plus you have to buy insurance about $500.00 a year. If you sell the trailer and buy another one you have to buy a new plate for $109.00.
