RE: If a pickup truck has been "Lifted" and tricked out...

OP, Here's my lifted tricked out truck and I am far from some young kid. I would put it up against any 2500/3500 SRW truck on this forum towing, ride quality, or ready to tow condition. You need to do your homework though on the upgrades that have been done to it and why. http://i968.photobucket.com/albums/ae169/transamz9/truck%20pix/DSCF0257_zpsb0c7a815.jpg What lift kit did you use and how high.Height and wheels and tires are standard looking.What tricks did you do,black lights?

RE: If a pickup truck has been "Lifted" and tricked out...

Too many trucks are so called lifted with little knowledge of drive angles,clearances etc.it likely was some boys idea of a modern day hot rod.I will bet it also has or had a tuner or chip installed at one time.Not my idea of what I would buy for any reason far less a tow vehicle.

RE: Why!!!

I can sympathize with you. I have a very similar situation with some of the RV's I would like to look at. It sounds like you have a full life as I do. A 4 hour road trip would be better spent going to visit my mother rather than going to an RV dealer. My weekends are already full and along with my full time job 4 hours of free time is precious; there are a whole lot of other things that would come before a "road trip" to the dealer. Family being just one of the items at the top of the list. How do you find time to use your investment??

RE: r vision what happened?

LynnandCarol,that is the sad part of it all.R Vision I am pretty sure never bought faulty material or products,in my case, as it seems to be in the Rv industry,the problem is the terrible workmanship.I am glad you got a good unit.I had one H___ of a time trying to sell mine.I finally traded it in at a dealer and gave him the history of it.It took them almost 2 years to sell it off the lot.What I purchased is not relevant,but I am very happy.

RE: r vision what happened?

I am now considering buying a 2009 r vision trail lite 29ft B+. I know they went out of business but can't find much info on this rig. Nada doesn't even list it??? Anyone out there know who made this year and model? Was it still r vision? What was the last year r vision was in business? Where they any good? Do you have one? Any info on this rig would be appreciated. thanks rich We had an R vision travel trailer,2008 and it was by far the least desirable and worst constructed of the many many different makes over the years.We finally with the dealers and manufactures blessing and apologies gave up after 2 years and moved on.Had a nice floor plan,decent material but the workmanship:R

RE: IRS Scam Alert

My goofy brother in law just tells them they can be contacted at the following number and gives them the City Police number and to ask for room 6.I don't know what happens but he has fun.

RE: Storing a Diesel Motorhome for 5 moths in Las Vegas

I do plan on removing the batteries and taking them home to keep them charged up You are going to haul the batteries all the way back to Saskatoon to charge them? Why can't you fully charge them,disconnect them totally and leave them in the unit.You know that up here batteries are left 5 months in the bitter cold winter year after year.I have a set right now that is on it's sixth winter.To each his own,but that is way more work then I would do.Small solar panel?

RE: What would you buy for a $175,000?

I know this isn't really the answer you want.One month trip to Hawaii every year for 35 years.

RE: Selling Canadain RV in USA after trip?

RV's are way cheaper down south,factor in currency exchange and probably see a substantial lower number then you are planning on.

RE: Going from 5th wheel to class A

We did it twice but our experience was mostly because of our preferred use.Best way to travel is a class A,best way to camp,fish boat etc. for us was 5th.wheel.Best way to retire was extended stay trailer.Did not like the idea of a tow behind but tried it two different times to make sure and did not like it but knew I needed a tow car,for the freedom to move around a lot.We explored a lot,didn't like pot luck supper style parks very much. Where is Up here in the cold,cold north? Saskatchewan,your neighbor to the north.It is -15 Centigrade on the deck today.Much the same weather as North Dakota and Montana to the south. That's colder than a witches........icebox :B Ya it just gets stupid sometimes, tonight forcast -39 with the windchill mind you.Health prevents us from travelling south now,but summers are very nice here.Sorry for hijacking post.

RE: PROPANE

The misplacement of the "#" sign is one of the many things that are all too common. Generally, if the "#" sign is IN FRONT or the number, it means "number", as in "You #10!" If the "#" sign is after a number, it means "pounds". I agree, the 23.9# probably means that the TARE (empty) weight of the cylinder is 23.9 pounds. All the kids call the # a "hashtag"now.

RE: how much cash?

An aside to the cash story.I have a brother in law that doesn't travel much and on a trip to Hawaii along with a visa takes $4000.00 Us. cash in a big roll in his pocket.You wouldn't believe how many places would not take his cash when he hauled out the big roll.They didn't trust him or his money.Finally changed to carrying smaller amounts.We all offered to carry some but nope.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

Almost every car has many aluminum components, several cars including the really great Audi A8 has an all aluminum body. Some Ferraris are all aluminum. Some trucks have aluminum hoods and tailgates. Most Class 8 trucks are aluminum body. All Aircraft are almost all aluminum. And some have Carbon fiber too. No one ever spent $22000.00 to repair a "Minor" dent on anything even a Rolls Royce or a Ferrari. Some sailboats are aluminum. Other boats are aluminum. They are in salt water all the time. Has everyone lost their minds? Aluminum has many advantages, and a very few compromises. Now I can imagine how Copernicus felt when he claimed the earth revolved around the sun. And please tell us how did he feel?Don't remember seeing that on the news or Facebook.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

I wonder if it is not going to cost more to repair and the parts are about the same why is there an increase in price for the aluminum version as has been stated many times.I also wonder which metal is more expensive to produce and which has higher environmental impact?Nothing against aluminum just the advertising about the use.So Ford is using the aluminum weight reduction to be more economical fuel wise,Ram and GM do as well if not better using less al.What will Ford do when and if Ram and GM also drop 700 lbs.adding to the already better fuel economy they have without it.Interesting subject to watch repairs etc.A better truck is good for all of us for sure.Insurance pays of course and the more expensive the claim the more the premiums go up.

RE: Left over 2014 purchase?

The only thing holding back would be my money.Give them an out the door price period end.Don't be coming with all these idiot reasons and more to get more money.Who cares how the dealer got the truck and where.

RE: Actual cost of repairing aluminum F150

So now if you buy a new aluminum Ford you have married the whole Ford system family and relatives.No thanks,I prefer where and when to have my vehicles repaired.Nothing against Ford but you can also kiss many family body repair operaters good bye,as I doubt they will have time and money to become one of Fords family.We ran Fords as lease vehicles but used the independents for all non warranty repairs to support those who supported us.I see Ram and GM family do a competitive job of economy as is.
