RE: Truck Rental

What are you intending to do? Are you going on a trip, moving it from one storage or seasonal site to another? Relocating? I am in southeastern PA, and Truckasaurus is more than capable of handling your fiver. I may be inclined to offer assistance if your needs and my schedule match up. X2 . . also IF you have somebody that owns a business , you can always open up an account with Penske and or Ryder.. as long as you know someone with a CDL your golden . . .just ask for a Single Axle Day Cab....

RE: Are tents next to RV at campgrounds okay?

Last year we pulled into a campground and backed in the site.. I could not deploy my awning all the way as it would have hit the tent that was set up next to the TT is the site next to me.. I just asked to have another site... You will find that each CG owner will have their own rules , but most of the places I have been in allow it. And usually its not bad as long as the person setting up the tent has some common sense.....

RE: Y R exhausts/hookups on awning side

IF I find set up/layout an issue then I don't buy that one......way to many other ones available Folks don't buy.....mfg. will stop offering them. I also do this,,, when looking for a camper , once we see a floor plan that we like , I then go to the street side of the camper and look at all the hook ups... I have seen some really bad configurations.?????

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

I wish I could remember the manufacturer... When walking the RV show this year we came upon an RV display of BRIGHT colored NEON colored trailers... The first thing I said was OMG!! but there was a lot of SOLD signs on them... I guess the old saying - - there is an arse for every seat -- is really true :h

RE: one night stops

The only time I un hook my truck is if the site is not long enough , or if I have to run for supplies or food . . 98% of the time I am hooked up with the landing gear down just enough to take some weight.. Good To Go... Joe

RE: Goodyear G614 Tires

just remember to add in the shipping... mounting...balancing when looking at the online numbers.. They look real good until it's time to get them put on.. I have not looked at them lately , but a few years back I needed to replace 2 on the road and had to pay close to $400 each.. OUCH Per the link you provided - - Tires - $319.99 ea. residential shipping - $19.05 ea. total - $339.04 tax - 79.82 or $19.95 ea. grand total-$357.99 ea. Then add mounting and balancing locally... Just make sure you are apples to apples

RE: I did it! Advice for others

Glad it all worked out. Why I started using those BAL scissor chocks that go between the tires, one on each side. I found out that a regular wedge chock doesn't work if the tires are up on boards or blocks to level the unit. That pivot happened once to me before I had the Hensley, almost exactly as you described. One side on blocks and the other side chocked, and as I raised the TT off the ball it started to go sideways. Fortunately it was coming toward me as I stood beside the tongue, so I was able to stop it and lower it back onto the ball quick before it got away. http://bucarsrv.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/chocks.png width=240 I also use these , but use wheel chocks with them... As far as the slides go , DW will not put them out until I give her the all clear... That does not happen until ALL my stabilizers are down and tight , which only happens after I am level side to side and front to back.. She has already yelled to me saying I'm taking too much time and she wants to put the slide out... :)

RE: Upper-Middle East Coast Campgrounds?

Well.... try the following - Spring Gulch Campground in New Holland - LINK...Lake In Woods in Narvon ( close to New Holland- - LINK... and Delaware State Seashore Park in Rehoboth DE - LINK... All are pet friendly ( we have a dog) and all are decent places to stay that are somewhat close to you

RE: Looking for Advice

Thanks! I am trying to talk myself into the larger one. Oddly enough, my husband has left the decision to me. (If something goes wrong I picked the wrong one.) no... that's not why he is doing that... I would ASSUME he is going by the old husbands motto - - A happy wife is a happy life... Sometimes it is just easier that way ! :B

RE: Looking for Advice

Yes , you are just being paranoid... IF it were ME... I would go with the Jayco... That is only my opinion , no good reasons...

RE: A NEW SRW vs DRW pulling a short heavy FW

If you have ever blown a rear tire while pulling a 5ver you know the dully is the way to go. The only thing I would change on my truck it would have 4 wheel drive. I see this point brought up a lot and just wonder if it has ever happened to you-or others. I have been towing for 40 years and have blown only 1 tire and that was on the trailer. Not trying to start something, just curious. I have never had this happen either... BUT have heard stories on here about people blowing tires on their TV while towing.. A few weeks back a member posted his pictures.. the tire tossed it's tread and stayed aired up...

RE: A NEW SRW vs DRW pulling a short heavy FW

my trailer is 15k loaded... I am under on ALL my weights.. not a lot under BUT under.. and that's all that counts... The NEW ERA trucks by all 3 are much better at towing heavier weights.. my 2015 SRW is stable , even in cross winds.. Tow sensibly and check the weights...

RE: Williamsburg VA for Easter 2015

A few years back we stayed at American Heritage and it was a real nice place to stay ... And I also believe that they have upgraded even more since my stay... Colonial Williamsburg and Bush Gardens were all within 20 minutes...

RE: Short Box + 5'VR = Disaster????

Another short box- fiver combo here for over 6 years... And yes , I too am one of those who say that's my short box will do almost anything the long beds can do... But more importantly , it does EVERYTHING I need it to... I also spent the money and got a Super Glide... Worth EVERY PENNY ... Again.... These are MY opinions only...
