RE: Are Your Decals Ugly?

Never really liked what they put on the later Lance's (orange, blue, going across a window!) So when I ordered my 2015 1050S Lance I had them all deleted except the front & rear Chevron (vee) & the Lance name on the sides & back. They dry out & fade over time & look like &(*&^ IMO

RE: Northstar 850SC on 2015 Ford F-150 truck

My, Brother In Law tried this route several yrs ago, bought a F150 long box 4 x 4 with the heaviest GVW he could get. The truck had about 38k on it (mostly towed behind his motorhome). He loaded my Mom's 8ft S & S camper on it & made one trip with it & noticed that his tranny or transfer case was making some noise & slipping. It had been doing this for a little while, so he took it into the local Ford dealership (with the camper still on it) and they said that Ford would not warranty the transfer case, (it was shot, metal in the oil) because he had a camper on it!! Even though it was still under the max GVW! They suggested he unload the camper & go to another dealer! What a bunch of BS! As it turned out the front end was completely worn out also, apparently being towed behind a motor home on the Alcan so often beat the hell out of the front end! He decided to trade it on a new F350 truck! My point here is buy the heavier truck!! don't buy a car-truck! F250 min you get heavy axles, brakes, just a heavier drive train. Just my 2-cents.

RE: Eagle cap 960 falling apart?

Very sorry to hear of your issues with your EC. I almost a 015 EC 995 but because of the cost we decided to go with a Lance 1050S and have had 0 problems, I know they have there problems but were really happy with ours! Hope you get yours fixed!

RE: Alaskan brand truck campers--Pros and cons??

Had a 10ft overcab for several years on a F-250 always worked ok on this truck, then bought a Dodge & the Alaskan wouldn't fit it! So gave it up & bought a Lance, (the older Alaskan's won't fit some trucks). Just bought a new Lance this yr & tried to talk the "Boss" into getting a new Alaskan bought she was spoiled with the bath & shower etc. Anyway I miss the Alaskan a lot, anywhere I could get the truck into, no problem with the camper!. I agree that next time it would be on a flat bed with boxes for more storage etc. Only problem that I could see is with the overcab models, (all Alaskans are wood framed) & I know they rot up front, hard to keep the water from penetrating the wood over the yrs of going down the hwy with a driving rain. The water will will work its way in there because of there design. If I was ordering one I would spend the extra bucks & have ALL the wood treated & coated with a wood epoxy such as West System. Because they also rot on the sides from wheel well spray over the years. Other than these issues I would love to have a New one! I just don't understand what they sell for (I understand they only sell a few of them a year compared to say Lance) but with no dealer network, (factory direct) they are over priced IMHO. With a 25% disc off my new 1050 Lance (about 31K) it was cheaper than a new Alaskan! Maybe the factory would discount them a little, but I doubt it. I'm still looking for a good cheap used one for just myself to get away to the boonies! Go buy one!!!

RE: So would you go with a built in propane generator today?

I am with the "don't buy it" crowd. Had one on my old Lance, worked for about 50 hrs or so then it crapped out. Spent a Ton of money on it never did work right. When I ordered my new 015 Lance I didn't get it! I enjoy the extra storage! I have a Yamaha 3000 which starts so nice & is quite & has a fuel shutoff to save the carb. I actually carry the gen behind the seat of my old Dodge ext cab, & haven't yet had a gas fumes. Works for us.
