RE: Load Range "G" Tire List?

Here is another All Steel ply LRG. Weighs 61 pounds. http://simpletire.com/gladiator-qr35-tr-astrailer-service-tires Make sure you get the (AS) = all steel. Chris I don't know if those are a good tire, but the price is right.

RE: B&W Champanion Hitch

Is your truck a Long Bed? You would have a hard time beating B&W for the Ford OEM application. Very good hitch, very good company to deal with.

I don't know the load specs on those Goodyears, but a Michelin 275/65/20 LTX MS2 has 3750lb per tire @80PSI. Those tires combined yield 7500lb of capacity in the rear, they would have no problem handling your stated weights. Enjoy that new Toyhauler, I am sure it will be a good unit.

fj12 - Maybe I'm missing something here. GMC's certified drive axle rating is 6200#. My truck scaled @ 3560#. The rear axle is well within it's limits! I think the loaded scale weight is what the poster is referring to, with the pin weight of the Spartan. How do you like that Toyhauler? They look very nice from what I have saw of them. Your rear tires will be the determining factor in your setup, what tires do you have on your truck?

RE: 2011 Chev silverado 2500 2962# capacity updated

A 2500HD crew cab 4x4 with a high level trim will have around 7,500lb curb weight.

RE: Sidewinder Hitch. Anyone have one? Any issues?

I had a Sidewinder on my Jayco, they work as advertised. You cannot tell any difference towing on the highway between the Sidewinder and a regular pin box. You can feel a little jolt sometimes on a curvy road due to slack in the wedge and side of the hitch. This jolt happens just before the pin box starts to pivot at the torrent, and I could only feel it during a slow speed sharp turn. The hooking up takes a little to get comfortable with, but after a few times becomes natural. I used mine for 4 years with a Reese Signature Series hitch, I liked it. At the time I had the Sidewinder, B&W didn't offer a sliding hitch or I would have never tried it. I pull Gooseneck trailers as well as Fifth Wheel, so the Superglide was not for me at that time. I will say my B&W is a much smoother, easier hitching system, but the Sidewinder does work, and is an option for many.

RE: Picking up Reflection 303 next week

Congratulations on the new fifth wheel, I am sure you will enjoy it.

RE: Sidewinder Hitch. Anyone have one? Any issues?

I like the idea of a sidewinder so I could use the ram B&W drop in companion (vs adaptor and superglide) There were some posts a while back stating a Sidewinder should NOT be used with a B&W hitch. Has anyone got an update on that? I believe B&W allows the use of them on a 4 point puck mounted system, just not the turnover ball mount with the Companion.

RE: Vehicle taxes where you live... how bad?

Kentucky is a complete robbery state. I will not consider retiring here, you never stop paying on your property. Essentially you could never outright own anything, you will always owe the state something.

RE: Why only one bed in a fifth wheel and why sooo tall?

Used to puzzle me, too, but several years of membership on Forums like this one have led me to the following conclusion/explanation...for what it's worth: In my opinion, fifth wheels are taller now because they're designed for old folks. Old folks don't like crawling into bed or breaking down a table to sleep, instead preferring sleeping accommodations that they can walk around and leave set up all the time. And which accommodations don't interfere with the La-z-boy/TV setup in the "living room". That's the plain conclusion I've arrived at after two years of research into the ideal rig for us to go tour the Country in. The divide seems so apparent to me that it's become a bit of a "thing" with us- somehow, becoming a fifth wheel owner is synonymous with giving in to old age. In much the same way that we cling to our low chairs as proof that our knees still work as well as they ever did, my Husband and I have decided that whatever rig we choose it will not be a fifth wheel. P.S. At 67(H) and 62(W) respectively, we are by every other definition OLD! I'm going to have to disagree here. Everyone I know that has purchased a fifth wheel, myself included, did so because of the way they pull. Handling, comfort and ease of maneuverability are very much different than a pull behind trailer. I'm mid 40's and most of my friends with fivers range from mid 30's to 50's. I fit in your group, we will own nothing but a fifth wheel.

RE: Hitch vs. Trailer weight

No problem with that

RE: Need to give a heads up to stay away from this place..

One thing about it, over 1,000 people have read about this bad experience in just a couple of days. The power of the web is the most influential bargaining tool you have on people like this. Negative reviews don't settle well with potential customers.

RE: New 5er owner!

I would pull that like it is, i see no problem. If you bring the rear of your truck up, your trailer will get higher in the nose. With these deep beds today, it's tough to keep the nose down, and maintain bed clearance. I would guess you are squatting 2-1/2" under pin weight, your truck looks very close to level.

RE: anyone running a demo hitchhiker auto slide hitch

I understand nobody will have the answer to this question, but I am going to ask anyway. Why does Pullrite not have a Superglide that will work with the Ram prep?

RE: Kentucky Rt.23, Jenkins to Kenova ?

23 North is an easy drive, you will have zero issues.

RE: Kentucky Rt.23, Jenkins to Kenova ?

That drive is very easy. Are you going US23 to 119? The Pikeville route on 23 does not have any curvy area. The new route 119 is a very good road, they got rid of the curvy mountain a couple of years ago.

RE: Grand Design 303 Question?

We really like our 337, I am glad we bought a Grand Design. I have zero issues towing this trailer, very smooth and stable.

RE: Anyone with a Grand Design Reflection? (Hitch questions)

1. If you have any of the Reflection models and a short bed, have you found that you needed (or wish you had) a slider hitch? I know newer units from many of the manufacturers have extended pin boxes and rounded caps, so I'm not sure how the clearances work out in this case. It seems to me that the old width of overhang/2 + 4" for pin-to-cab clearance is mainly for square-front trailers and/or those without extended pin boxes. I believe the Reflection will turn about 80 Degrees with a short bed truck. I have a Slider, I do not have to slide it back just driving to and from the campgrounds. I could see maybe needing it though, I am not sad I have it. 2. With the new trucks (especially the Chevy/GMC HDs) being so much taller than their predecessors, have you had any problems with either getting the trailer to sit level when hitched or with overhang-to-bed rail clearance? In other words, if you set the hitch plate low enough for the trailer to sit level, is the bed rail clearance too little? I have a little over 6" clearance, my trailer is about 1" high in the nose. My truck squats 2" with the pin weight of my 337, I set 1/2" up in the rear when towing. My truck handles this 337 great.

RE: Grand Design Refleion

I bet it is wired for a second AC, I would check on the price of the second unit. We really like our Reflection, you will have a hard time beating them in customer support.

RE: Help with NEW bunkhouse.....

How old are your kids? We ended up getting a Montana front lounge unit after my 16 year old said, "please, no more bunks." For the last three years she slept on the pull out couch instead of her bunk whenever we went camping. My husband prefers using the portable grill over an outside kitchen and we all prefer more inside space. Same here. We bought a Rear Living for those same reasons, our kids like the living room better than a small bed. My kids 13 and 7 don't care where they sleep, couch, pullout bed, or in the floor with a sleeping bag. Most of the time they sleep in the truck on the trip to the campground, I have saw them sleep in some crazy positions.
