RE: Daytona

yes I agree,terryallan X3, it's become a sham Yep a VERY poor excuse for what NASCAR once was There was a day when each team was free to innovate and experiment to find that little extra that made them better. Now it's about baby boys ego and making every team the same. I guess they were not paying attention to what happened to IROC They should have. the same thing is happening to NASCAR.

RE: so is 29 ft the cutoff for not towing a toad ?

But then you WILL have to unhook, when you leave, and setup again. Also ANY MH is too large to drive around in "many" old historical towns. Charleston SC comes to mind, and no, You are not going to ride your bike to town from any Charleston CG, or from any Myrtle Beach CG, or from any NC mountain campgrounds. Were I you. Unless you don't plan to leave the CG. I would tow a vehicle.

RE: Daytona

Anyone camping at Daytona next week for the 400? We will be right outside turn 1, watching all the coaches and haulers go into the infield. Prolly a better show than the restrictor plate parade.

RE: Good reasons NOT to go with 5er over TT....

Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't understand a lot of folks issues with steps in a 5er. Unless of course you have mobility issues. While we don't have one yet, we have looked at several, and honestly I didn't even think about the steps being a problem and I'm no kid at 63 years old. I have to admit, they seemed to bother my wife though. She kept saying, "when we get older". Well, if I'm that bad off I can't walk up 2 or 3 steps, I will probably stay home. A lot of people have issues with anything associated with physical exertion! OR it could be that many of us led full active lives when we were young. We played baseball, We played basketball, football, water skied and we swam / dove, doing MANY crazy tricks. Often we landed the wrong way. Many snow skied. And in truth ALL of those fun activities take a toll on your body. My back pain partly comes from playing basketball, going for the ball, falling, and sliding backwards into the wall in the gym. My knee pain comes partly from sliding into bases, and trying to look cool, standing up as the end on the slide. Also from sliding too late. Have to remember. EVERYTHING you do when you are young. You pay for when you are old. SO. The 4 steps up into a 5er, and the 3 or 4 steps into the bedroom / bathroom bother me, and IF I had to do it over, and over, it would not be worth the pain. So a TT fits me better. Hopefully you will never have joint problems. However if you do. I guess you will just stay home in the recliner as you said. Me. I'm goin. Now to the real question. Do I regret playing hard and being put up wet? Nope. I loved every minute of it. Except maybe that time I fell waterskiing, and the ski belt came up my chest, and nearly smothered me, Or the time I broke my collar bone playing softball. Or maybe the time I broke my arm, or the gym thing. Other than those minor details. I'm good

RE: What kind of Tires is Needed For Towing My TT?

Id like to know if 10 ply or if normal rated tires should be bought for towing my Cherokee 26bh Grey Wolf TT? As Im ready to buy a new set of tires for my 1999 Dodge 1500 quadcab 4x4 truck that I tow my TT with.... honestly. Buy some Cooper Discoverer Plus. they are rated to 2601lb. Way more than you will ever need for hauling or towing with a 1500 truck. Also. they last as long as any tire on the road. Also they will help to keep the TT inline, and stable. I have had Goodyears, Michelins, BF Goodrich what ever. None were any better than the Cooper. Most were not as good, All cost much more.

RE: Good reasons NOT to go with 5er over TT....

So here are my reasons, and cases for both. 5er. More storage. As for towing. Have towed both. Trailertrucks are 5ers aren't they? They do have a 5th wheel. any way. A properly setup TT will tow as well as a 5er, after all they both are affected by wind. Backing. No problem backing either. Same basic rules apply. So as far as I can see. The big plus to a 5er is the storage, But then that means it takes more truck. Flaws? Steps / stairs. It is up or down every where you want to go with a 5er. More steps to get in, and then steps to the bedroom, and bath. TT. Less storage. Lots less. But then not as much truck is needed. Also, a little harder to hookup, but no chance of dropping it on the truck rails. Towing again. Pretty much a wash except for the easier hookup for the 5er. You do get to use your bed while towing, and not towing. And the big one for me. NO stairs. It's flat inside, and less steps to get in. What it comes down to. Is what YOU want, and what your TV will easily tow. Want a 5er, need more storage, and don't mind paying more. Get a 5er. Want a TT, don't like steps, want to use your truck bed, or tow with a SUV. Get a TT. It is ALL your choice. And it is all your money. YOU are the only one you have to please.

RE: Had an oh **** moment!

Any "between the tires" chocks like x-chocks, Rotochocks, etc will loosen as the tires cool down and contract. After setting them when you first park, it's a good idea go go back after the tires have cooled and then adjust them tighter.X2 I think Rotochocs are the best. The trailer tires would skid along rather than turn if you tried to pull the trailer without removing them. Best chocks ever made, in my opinion. Unfortunately, the company went out of business a few years ago after the original owners passed on. Have actually forgot to remove the X chocks before trying to pull away. NO they will NOT stop the tires from rolling. And yes they WILL damager the tire side wall if you run over them in the wrong way. After a new tire. I have learned the hard way, To take them out before pulling hooking up. Then remove the chocks

RE: Had an oh **** moment!

does anybody have problems with the xchaulks loosening? We were stacked up pretty high with levelers and I went on the roof to get a foam piece I used on the top of the slide and the trailer proceeded to roll forward about a foot with my wife hanging out the door and me on top with a wet roof. I got them because they were supposed to keep the trailer put. Do they just need to be re tightened? Thanks for any help. X chock will not by themselves keep your Tt from rolling, and in fact they are NOT designed to. they are designed to be used with regular chocks. X chock are to help take movement out of the trailer as you walk around in it. they will NOT anchor it, and stop it from rolling.

RE: 2015 Ford and Chevy sales recap

Here we go again. :S Who want to be first, "But if you combine the numbers ......." True in 2015 combined GM beat out F150. For the first time in years. Not true this year to date. Have to remember 2015 was a retooling year, and Ford didn't have many 150s to sell. That being said. A truck is a truck. they all do what you want them to if you get the right options. I drive Fords cause I like the way they feel, and drive, My friend drives Chevies cause he likes the way they feel.

RE: 13 year old trailer tires..

Not sure you are any better off with the good years I had good years I have kenda karrier loadstars now... What do you mean? GoodYears have a habit of exploding, and leaving you sitting on the highway. All you get is a name. Will never buy another Goodyear

RE: Help - I don't want to kill my truck with my trailer...

You really need to know the rear gear ratio to have an idea as to what it will tow. IF it has the 3.08. You are looking at a 5000lb max tow capacity. IF it has the 3.42. you are closer to 8000lb. The engine is only a part of the tools needed for towing. If you have a 3.42 or lower gear. You should be fine with the TT.

RE: Down sizing LP tanks and adding scissor jacks

Thanks for all the advice. Yes, the idea of replacing the tanks is a little more cost and trouble than keeping what i have already; i will keep it in the bottom of the list. Adding the set of Scissor Jacks will be an easy mod; i forgot to mention - i already use an x-chock type device between the tires, adding the jacks will work on the bouncing. Sorry Terry no swap...Old B thanks for the calculation...N-A-V we have the same floor plan different brand, thanks for the idea. OH, nothing wrong with living in the country - no more city living for me. IF we swap. Tanks, and tie downs. won't cost you a thing, Me neither.

RE: Down sizing LP tanks and adding scissor jacks

I'd like to swap you my 20s for your 30s. As for the movement. You can also get X-Chocks for between the wheels. As to more stabilizers. Yes that will help. anytime you can stop the bounce at the springs, It will help stabilize the TT.

RE: 2015 26RBPR premier ultral lite F-150 towing questions

Gonna be borderline. A lot depends on what you expect while towing. And I would really like to know how they come off calling that TT a ULTRA LITE. That thing is durn heavy. Don't be fooled just because they say it is lite. It is NOT.
