Good Sam Financing

Now that we're really ready to buy our next toy hauler and the Work & Play is sold, its time to study my financing options. We have great credit but at the same time, RV financing doesn't quite compare with a 0% car loan you can find any day of the week. I'm used to paying somewhere in the 5%-5.99% range. But I see some really nice rates with Good Sam through Essex Credit. Anywhere from 3.79% to the low 4s for the amount we're looking for. I like that a lot. Has anyone dealt with them while buying a camper somewhere besides CW? Right now, we may be buying from one of two different dealers or we quite possibly may be buying from a private individual on a used 2016 model. Any thoughts or tips would be appreciated. :)

RE: Samson G-rated Tires

Samson Tires Cool find. Thanks. I'm not going to do it. At this point, I just don't trust the dealership. We really like the camper and may end up getting it but the sales manager has blown too much smoke my way for me to do this right now. They want me to fax them a deposit form so bad, its annoying. But after this last bull about these $306 Samson tires, I'm going to wait until after the Raleigh RV show next weekend. If we don't see anything there that we don't know about (I doubt we will), then we'll go look at some others and this Vengeance again. If I buy the Vengeance, it'll be with its original tires. I'll probably go ahead and get G614s and have peace of mind.

Samson G-rated Tires

I'm finding a little bit of information about these. But the majority seems to be regarding the tires for motorhomes. I know these are no G614s. But does anyone have any real world experience for them? How's the pricing as well?

RE: Excessive white exhaust while driving F450 diesel

What about that issue they had with moisture in the exhaust or something similar? Its been over 5 years since I had mine but it would do that after excessive idling and especially if I floored it after some light cruising.

ESP Possibility

Maybe I'm over-thinking this but I want to cover my bases and have all my options before making a decision. We plan to purchase a new toy hauler within the next month. Only about a 33% chance it will be from CW. But if we don't buy from CW, there is a new CW just 3 miles from home with a nice new huge service department. I would think they'd be willing to do warranty work for us if we don't buy from them. But how quickly they'd be willing to help us is another thought. If I buy a GS ESP, I would think that would help me out quite a bit in getting my service work done a little quicker than just some guy off the street. But: 1. I see some terrible posts about the ESP here on the forums. I know people tell complaints far more often than compliments but "wow" are there some ugly threads. 2. I wonder just how expensive an ESP would cost? I haven't bought the toy hauler I want yet but I figure somewhere around $75,000 on a 2015 or 2016 model. Any comments on either of these points?

RE: Help me tow a stacker with an Avalanche

As I said. Just get a beefier hitch for the Avalanche. Putting a support wheel for the tongue seems expensive and a headache in backing situations. So you think an Avalanche can handle a 1500-1800 pound tongue weight without issue????? To move the thing around the yard? Absolutely.

RE: F350: 4.30 or 3.73 Gears

Agreed. My F350 SRW with the 6.2 and 3.73 used to pull the Work & Play in my signature. Around town isn't too bad. You're not going fast. Once you hit highway speeds, it was not a happy camper. Nothing like doing around 60 mph and when you hit a decent incline, it would drop down to third gear screaming. That's why I bought the diesel.

RE: Wheel Capacities

I called Brad today and left him a voicemail. He's the rep for FR Vengeance toy haulers. That's the one I'm particularly interested in. Hopefully I'll hear back the first of next week. Thanks all.

RE: Jan sales figures

In order for some people to taste success they need to take a bite out of someone else's. I may use that one some time. ;)

Wheel Capacities

Some new toy haulers in our area already come with G rated Sailuns (Fuzions, Raptors). Some still come with E rated "whatevers". How likely is it that the wheels on some of these toy haulers with E rated tires are capable of G rated 110 psi pressures? The toy hauler I'm leaning toward has the 7,000 axle setup but I can't even remember the brand of tire it had. It certainly wasn't Westlakes and I don't see any TowMax tires anymore. Not a name brand tire I know. Buying 6 new G rated tires is tough enough. Buying 6 new G rated tires plus 6 new wheels to handle them is too much. Is the capacity stamped on the outside of the wheel or does the tire have to be removed from the wheel?

RE: Jan sales figures

I like my truck a lot, no matter how "antiquated" some think it is. Or if they sold 2 or a 2,000,000 last month. Fortunately for me, I don't equate my manhood to my truck. Maybe that's why I have such a simple signature for my posts.

RE: Help me tow a stacker with an Avalanche

Some of you need to read the OP's post more thoroughly. He's not talking about driving around with a 10K trailer on the back of an Avalanche. He also does not need a weight distributing hitch. He's talking about arriving HOME at his lot and storing the empty stacker in a spot where he can't use the motor home to back it in. He just needs something to support the tongue weight while moving the stacker around in his yard. He could probably move it with an ATV if he had a large wheel supporting the tongue. As I said. Just get a beefier hitch for the Avalanche. Putting a support wheel for the tongue seems expensive and a headache in backing situations.

RE: Help me tow a stacker with an Avalanche

Last year I replaced the stock Ford hitch on my '13 F350 gas truck. I use that truck a LOT for heavy equipment towing. I got from etrailer.com a Curt class V that handles 20,000 lbs. and 2700 lb. tongue weight without WD. Whenever I need to move the Work & Play around the yard for anything, I just hook up and go. The hitch is only around $350 and I installed it myself in about hour.

RE: Eating Out

Weekend warrior and typical RV family (week trip to beach, Disney once in awhile, etc.). We eat out often on trips. Its a leisure thing for us. We do most breakfasts and almost all lunches at the camper but at least half our suppers are out.

RE: Please check my TV/TT and WDh setup

All that weight stuff was more than my head could handle on a rainy night like this. :B But considering the overall weight of the camper and the front fender height of the Jeep, I wouldn't change a thing. Any idea of how much the rear fender changed?

RE: Insurance for Ram 45/5500

Call a local insurance broker. I suspect lesser known but quality insurance companies would do it; especially if the vehicle is titled in your name. You just may have to switch over everything to them. But then again, if my insurance wouldn't do it for me, I'd take my other vehicles and house policies somewhere else anyway.

RE: NASCAR in Daytona 2016

When I was growing up, we were avid race fans. I pretty much idolized David Pearson when I was a kid. We went to Charlotte (World 600 and National 500) and Darlington (Rebel 500 and Southern 500) twice every year. But its lost it for me for the most part. Yes, I'm getting older but that has only a little to do with it. It just isn't the same. I know things change but somehow, I've grown tired of it and really have no desire to go see one. If we were going to Daytona, we'd probably just veer off to the right instead at I-4 and just keep on going to Disneyworld. :B

RE: Full pics & some info... 2017 Super Duty

Who cares where the pucks are? Hitch companies that have to make a different hitch base for each truck manufacturer. Chris I disagree with you here Chris.. The hitch companies know this configuration will be around for many years. They will race to have hitch developed and be first to market. May already have them built? Will sell at a premium price at first. The consumer will be the loser price wise at first. Is it not the same locations as the 2011-2016 model years?

RE: Full pics & some info... 2017 Super Duty

I like it. Just not enough to sell my '15 and go get one. Who cares where the pucks are?

RE: Hey Lucy- 'splain sumthin to me!

I admit. Its me. I've been using your tanks to grill chicken. Sometimes when I bring them back, I have to leave in a hurry because somebody's coming. Sorry. By the way. That left one is getting low. I have a Super Bowl party this weekend. Please get it filled.
