Good idea on the vent.
Im not so sure mine with be that minimal as far as the holes go because mine has a z bar. It's not just the carpet. Do you guys still think it will just be staples? I fear there will be nails or screws under there.
I am 99% sure that my trailer has lino throughout with carpet applied over the center portion between the door and the rear bed. The cabinets, storage nooks, and under couch where the fresh water sits all have the same lino so it makes sense that they would have applied it as a single large sheet.
Can anyone confirm that the lino is under the carpet?
How much damage will I be dealing with by removing the carpet?
FYI, thank you all for your help and suggestions.
I ended up with an 05 F150 Super Crew rated for 9200 pounds. My trailer weighed in at 5850 with all the gear in it, but no water/beer/food. It did have the cover in it, and some other random items. I have added some Monroe coil over shocks, but have not yet towed.
Been awhile, my new truck purchase was delayed while we dealt with my significant others car that we finally got the dealership to buy back after a 1 1/2 years.
We are back on track and in the hunt to replace my current TV.
I just got back from the scales, because I want to make the right decision on which to buy. The weights are way less than what some of the guess' were, and it's dripping wet since its poring rain today. It does not appear to be quite the "conestoga wagon" weights unless I am missing something.
Trailer was weighed with all our camping gear in it. Some other stuff I have shoved in there during the off-season but no water/food/clothes. All my weights other than the actual trailer are on what I believe is the high side.
Trailer - 5480
Water - 420 (based on 50 gallons, my tank is 40+7 for the water heater I think)
Ice Chest - 300
Clothes - 100 (5 pounds per day, 5 days, 3 people + 25 pounds)
Food - 100
Bike/toys - 100
Tools - 50 (rakes/shovels/splitting maul/etc)
Even with all of that in consideration on the high side I am still looking at 6700 pounds.
I am looking for opinions again, think I should start a new thread anyone?
