RE: RV Trade community dis of Truck Campers

I'd love to find out what RIVA did to annoy the OP. Seems like a lot of grump about nothing. Is the OP affiliated with a truck camper producer? That I could see as an issue but as just an everyday camper, who cares? While we haven't owned one, we have looked at them for a possible pan-american highway trip at some point. For the right use, they are a good option. I'm guessing most of the issue is sales are a tiny fraction both in terms of dollars and in terms of units compared to the other major RV types, so they tend to slip off the radar. PS: Never heard of them being referred to as dirtbaggers. I similar thing happens in Australia. Slideon Manufacturers are treated as nobodies. Some sites that listed some Slideon manufacturers have delisted the lot

RE: Ram truck forum

You are totally paranoid., I am not paranoid, Robert. Other people have also commented on how your posted are generally passive aggressive jabs toward the US and North America. They are either pointing out how someone else is better than the US at something, how someone has what the US doesn't have, how someone doesn't want something of from the US, and so on. Just stop. You should be enjoying talking about trucks and not trying to throw dirt on other people's country every chance you get with false info. How about doing the same. I posted a simple post about someone using a Japanese Truck to tow a Caravan. You just posted reams on what a silly idea it is. Crazy stuff

RE: Ram truck forum

I will keep responding and correcting every false anti-US post you make until the day you stop or I am banned from the forum. Just enjoy conversing with people and stop with the anti-American BS trying to say the the US is worse than the world or that someone else does something better than the US at every chance you get. And for crying out loud, if you are going to post then at least try to have it with truthful information that you can back up. You are totally paranoid., You are an aggressive individual that seems to take on ANYONE from outside the US when losing a discussion you resort too a "shoot the messenger approach"

RE: Ram truck forum

Nice try but totally false as you know. always seem to not tell the truth. Euro 6 goes to a huge market..not the limited Canadian/ US Market.,Cummins has made Euro 6 available to the Chinese market, which is rushing to electrification for cars. Europe has alone 500 million 16 million vehicles I am really trying to understand your Paranoia for anything outside NA. Explains to a great extent your far from thruthful posts Says the guys who still has not posted a dang thing to back up his false statements. I have posted numerous references backing up what I am saying while proving you wrongs and you have yet to post one link to back up your claims. You say my posts are not truthful, then prove it. Post some kind of information backing up your statements. You are not going to because you can't. You can't because what you are saying is false. You really need to stop posting all this passive aggressive anti-US false information and get over your hatred for anything North America. I will keep responding and correcting every false anti-US post you make. Aggressive Jingoistic posts are not going to make your false statements any less but it does show your hatred for the outside world What " facts" you post are irrelevant or have nothing to do with the post.

RE: Nascar Follies

Didn't get to watch today. Was crossing Stevens Pass on US-2 east of Seattle during most of the race. The little I could hear on SirusXM sounded interesting. The mountains and trees block the signal. I love the road courses mainly because they allow different pit strategies to work. Well that is what we miss here in Australia. Watkins Glen, Canadian track in Quebec produced some pretty good racing. NASCAR did not grasp, that racing was internationally relevant and they have allowed it too wither.,Not many Australians or anyone else are fascinated by the somewhat boring ovals

RE: Ram truck forum

Nice try, but false again. Not many countries outside of the European Union have adopted Euro 6. China have their own, Japan has their own, South Africa has their own, South Korea has their own, and Mexico is a mixture of old Euro and Teir 1 regulations. There are many other countries that are on lesser forms of the EU Euro or US Tier regulations, but most countries around the world do not have any vehicle emissions regulations. So you really cannot say the world's population or countries are not on Euro 6. Although the major reason the EU wants (or actually needs) to recruit other countries on board with their Euro regulations is because they do not have a big enough market alone to dictate to the car makes on what to do like the US and Cananda can. The US and Cananda don' need to recruit other countries because their market is large enough without them. I really don't know were this hatred that you have for the US and all of North America comes from, but you should really go talk to someone about it before it consumes you. It rather unhealthy to have such a hatred for people you do not even know. Nice try but totally false as you know. always seem to not tell the truth.

Earth Roamer. They are built in Colorado. Parts are built in Australia, assembled in the US. Australian home company has bit more variety than the US site

RE: Ram truck forum

There aren't any countries that abandoned US regulations. Only Canada has adopted current US emission regulations since our markets are so close to each other and they still have them. This is the same reason why most(but not all) countries around the EU adopted Euro standards. So I am not sure why you would make such a comment. If you want to see who has what as of 2016, then you can check here. Global Comparison: Light-duty Emissions Yes only Canada and they help build US vehicles which makes sense.Other countries did not have to accept Euro( China , they import Chevrolet and some Buick vehicles from the US, and Australia but they like the world outside NA, have accepted Euro emission standards Many have abandoned imperial measurement for metric, as regards regulations

RE: Ram truck forum

Go and find it, do not be lazy:(. As well the Tier 2 regulations lead too excessive C02 Levels you say so what ? Well Mitsubishi thought it meant nothing and they ended up being sold to Nissan Well you are the one who started saying they were less so show us your proof backing you up. Oh, and BTW, the US in currently in Tier 3(implemented in 2017), not Tier 2. So back up your claims and this debate you started with your false anti US statements. Maybe you could ask all those countries that have abandoned TIer2 to go to Euro regulations why they did? seeing there is a vast number now doing that. Last time I looked they were the majority of countries

RE: Ram truck forum

Well you are trying to twist it again. Tier 2 pumps out twice the limits of The Euro 6 regulations.This is a number in Europe that is of great concern. Then show me that Australia's current emissions are less! Go and find it, do not be lazy:(. As well the Tier 2 regulations lead too excessive C02 Levels you say so what ? Well Mitsubishi thought it meant nothing and they ended up being sold to Nissan. Very high PM that require additives to control

RE: Ram truck forum

No they are far from identical. otherwise we would have no problems adopting it. Twice the CO limits for Tier 2 :S Show me. Because when I convert the Euro 6 CO g/km to current US CO g/mi requirement, they round out to be the same number. Well you are trying to twist it again. Tier 2 pumps out twice the limits of The Euro 6 regulations.This is a number in Europe that is of great concern. That was a problem Ford had with the 7.3 Diesels here they could not even meet Euro 4 without a lot of money being spent and they were dropped.

RE: Ram truck forum

Problem reading? :h all countries outside NA by 2019-2020 Euro 6 So that means Australia currently has less stringent emission standards than the US. Correct? And even after implantation of Euro 6. Wrong. Tier 2 US regs come in a Euro 4, a decade behind. So no brainer that other countries have rejected the US Standards for something that is vastly better for the environment and more importantly individual health

RE: Ram truck forum

We are going to going too Euro 6. US Tier 2 regulations have been rejected as unsuitable.,Co2, CO and particulate matter major concerns to All those planning to implement Euro 6 . Reasons Countries as disparate as China, EU, South Africa are going for the more effective regulations. But if you are going to go Euro 6, then what are you now? Although the CO2 and PM of Euro 6 and US tier 2 are just about identical so essentially they just copied what we did and called it something else. The only major difference is that NOx is higher with Euro 6. No they are far from identical. otherwise we would have no problems adopting it. Twice the CO limits for Tier 2 :S

RE: Ram truck forum

Pretty easy. We have Euro 5, to disappear at the end of the year.Cummins has been trying to develop an effective Euro 6 engine.It has lagged behind Japanese and Europeans in bringing one to market. Europe does not have " US Design"Trucks,but Australia, New Zealand , and South Africa do. On the other hand their are many Cabover HDT European and Japanese Trucks, they all have no problems meeting Euro 6 So if you have Euro 5, then how are your emission standards higher than the US standards like you were trying to tell me in our last debate? Wouldn't that mean that your emissions standards are lower then the US(like I have trying to tell you) if you currently have Euro 5? Note: Even though Euro 6 has lower NOx regulations. Heck, even this Ausie is smart enough to know it...... Australia’s weaker emissions standards allow car makers to ‘dump’ polluting cars "In the United States the standards (referred to as the Tier 2 program) are more stringent than Euro 6, with the fleet average NOx close to 40 mg/km for both diesel and petrol engines. The Tier 2 program sets out the standards for tailpipe emissions for all passenger vehicles including sports utility vehicles (SUVs, minivans, and pick up trucks). Tier 2 will be replaced by stricter Tier 3 standards at the beginning of 2017." Euro 6 NOx requirement: 180 mg/km US EA NOx Requirement: 40 mg/km Which seems lower to you? We are going to going too Euro 6. US Tier 2 regulations have been rejected as unsuitable.,Co2, CO and particulate matter major concerns to All those planning to implement Euro 6 . Reasons Countries as disparate as China, EU, South Africa are going for the more effective regulations.

RE: Ram truck forum

You sure like to twist the subject? We are Taliking of a Euro 6. Equivalent Cummins. Which now are being made available in Australia as the article states. Not that it has a Cummins in it:R Euro 6 was implemented in January 2014. How are those 2015 and 2016 vehicles being sold if you are stating that Cummins just started to be compliant in 2017? Pretty easy. We have Euro 5, to disappear at the end of the year.Cummins has been trying to develop an effective Euro 6 engine.It has lagged behind Japanese and Europeans in bringing one to market. Europe does not have " US Design"Trucks,but Australia, New Zealand , and South Africa do. On the other hand their are many Cabover HDT European and Japanese Trucks, they all have no problems meeting Euro 6 Seeing this is the RAM Truck thread, the small number of RAM Diesels would be affected by a lack of compliance

RE: Ram truck forum

Could it have something to do with the fact that Australia is lagging behind on implementing Euro 6? No, most trucking companies have Euro 6 Compliant engines.Grace has been given to the ones using Cummins engines. End of this year no excuses

RE: Ram truck forum

Thrust of what I posted is the Euro 6 default standard, will be come the Global Standard. Hopefully it will standardise emission standards across major the Globe. Trying to meet Euro 6 has not been fun for Cummns, although it is a peripheral player in the none NA market. Navistar is throwing in the towel as regarding ii's Medium Duty 9-10litre engines, using Cummins instead. Scania/ MAN are dramatically increasing their share in Navistar , their engines who knows?
