RE: Howdy all!

Great pick. We came very close to getting a 420 but went with the Vengeance 40D12 instead. I'm a big Forest River fan so both those units were high on our list. The side patio was one of those things that I wanted but the wife was worried losing half the slideouts would be something we'd regret. But she will honestly tell you the side patio is her favorite part of the camper.

RE: Why do I clean before we camp?

The inside of the Vengeance gets a thorough cleaning inside after each trip. We park it in the driveway, hook up 15A power, unload everything, and start cleaning up (vacuuming, wipe downs, bathroom cleaning, pull the bed sheets, etc). Then if needed, it gets a good washing outside before I put it under the barn shelter. Before each trip, the truck gets all the attention. When we roll out, everything is all nice and shiny and then we typically hit a thunderstorm 10 minutes after leaving the house. :(

RE: Weights

2010 F250 GVWR is 10,000# Scaled weight.....11,060 (1,060# over GVWR) GCWR.....23,000# (scaled 21,400)...so under by 1,600# FAWR......6000 (scaled 5200).......so under by 800# RAWR......6100 (scaled 5860).......so under by 240# What is Load rating on rear tires? Otherwise...... Under on axle ratings so I stamp it good to go (provided tires are NOT over!) Exactly. Check those tires and roll on.

RE: Cherrystone, Campground, VA

I hate to post this but I was talking about Cherrystone at our trip last weekend to Ocean Lakes. We were talking with a family from Md. and they mentioned they "used" to go to Cherrystone a lot. I asked about Cherrystone because we had heard mixed reviews lately. They said the last three years, activities had gone way down and it just wasn't the same. We were bummed because we always wanted to go. Please let us know how the trip went.

RE: leaf blower

This question is similar to the others we see here: which camper, which truck, which hitch, etc., etc., etc. 3 dog nights. How much money are you willing to spend? That is the most important question for now.

RE: Best Non-Pet Loop at Fort Wilderness

Our first trip, we stayed in the 209. 100 and 200 loops are cool but that was when we had our TT. Larger units would probably be really difficult to get in there. Second trip, we were in 533. The 500 loop is beside the 1400 loop and can handle larger rigs better. What does everyone think about those loops on the other side of the road? 700-1100 loops? We're heading back down there this December. Its been a long time since we were there last.

RE: First Toy Hauler looking for informed input

On the east coast, the Work & Play is probably the only brand that can handle such a load unless you buy a full blown race trailer. We had a 30WRS Work & Play for a year and a half for our ATV races and it was a great camper built much tougher than most others. But I suspect the west coast has more choices. One thing about Work & Play is their height off the ground. I think they're lower than others so watch out with a 40' hauler. If you stay on-road, no big deal. But our races were in some rough areas and we had to be very careful not to drag our tail. I had rollers welded underneath the rear just in case.

RE: Silly Truck Trends

Ever see off-road stadium trucks? I think that is the look they are going for. Pretending your basically stock truck has a $50,000 suspension is pretty lame but to each his own I guess. This is what I assumed as well.

Silly Truck Trends

If this is you, I apologize. But I still think its downright silly. People go through phases with their vehicles. I can remember when stuff like curb feelers and those crown air fresheners on the back dash were the thing. I was never one to get into it too much but this one trend lately is just ridiculous. What's with the new look of taking your full size truck and having the rear lowered so much, it looks like you have a load of bricks in the bed? For the life of me, I have no idea why anyone would think this is appealing or even "cool". I mean really guys. Your headlights are shining up to the sky and I'm sure it takes away some of your view on the road. But I see this more and more every day. Can someone please elaborate?

RE: Not nitrogen , again !

On that note, we just recently bought my son a new car. It was amazing how many dealers were charging $199 for nitrogen filled tires. It was an "add-on". Needless to say, I told them to not even consider that junk as we were bargaining. What a crock.

RE: Buying my first Toy Hauler

Your requirements are fairly common so it should be fairly easy. Now its time to just do some internet shopping and make some visits to local dealers. Start with Camping World online. Lots of choices but most of the time, terrible prices.

RE: Towing with Ford Expedition

What's your typical camping destination? Headed straight to the beach? Or driving north into the mountains?

RE: Rank the toy haulers

21'-22' is a small toy hauler. We're not even considering big high end haulers now. I would start looking at the Puma Unleashed models. Not too long, in the budget, and light enough. Readily available here on the east coast.

RE: Rank the toy haulers

It would be likely easier to give you some suggestions if you give up some info about what you want to carry, price range, people to sleep, overall length, maximum gvw you can tow. What he said.

RE: lug nut torque

My 8 lug aluminum wheel lugs call for 100 ft./lbs. of pressure.
