RE: 1500 and hitch or holdout for 2500

Depends what year of truck and what you want to tow. My 2014 1500 ram v8 tows a lot better than my 2006 e350 v10 did. More power, more stabile, better ride, and better mpg.

RE: How old is your fifth-wheel?

Was thinking about getting a new 5er next year when I turn my truck in. We have a 2006 that I paid cash for about 4 years ago. Looked at new 5ers and what I want will cost me close to 40K out the door. My 2006 TT has never looked so good through my eyes. Now I plan on keeping the current one at least until my son gets out of school where the wife and I would have an extended camping season.

RE: 2WD vs 4WD tow vehicle

I got stuck pulling out of our campsite with a 2wd after a rain (wet grass). Had to ask someone for help to get pulled out. Almost got stuck a couple other times. 4x4 for me since.

RE: Boom goes my fresh water tank....

My tank was sagging very bad on my Jayco. I worried the same thing was going to happen so a few years back I added some reinforcement to the brackets. This is the reason I had enclosed underbellies. We don't camp in the winter so I could care less about keeping the tanks warm. I would rather see what is going on down there.

RE: Trying to find a used TT - a rant!

I bought used and don't think I would go through that process again. Wasted so much time looking at overpriced garbage. Nice well kept rvs that are reasonable are few and far between. I did find exactly what I was looking for but it took me almost a year.

RE: Looking for higher end travel trailer

I suggest you sell the motor home and get this BUY NOTHING for a year. See if you really do miss it or not. Not sure of your age, but hotels are a lot easier then RVing. Go 12 months and see how many times you say, whish we had a camper to go to the lake, I bet you will use hotels more and enjoy it more. I agree. We did that some years back. We missed it and bought another with intentions of using it more. We still dont use it enough. We love camping just not enough time with work and other travel (planes).

Went from 1 ton to 1/2 ton and couldn't be happier

This spring I traded in my 1 ton e350 van for a new dodge 1500 hemi Ram. I read guys say these new 1/2 ton trucks have came a long way. OMG.. their was a huge when going from my old f150 to my e350 and I would say I am about equally impressed going from my e350 to my ram 1500. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure the new 3/4 ton would even do better but these 1/2 tons tow trailers within spec great. I even like the p rated tires because they handle great and I don't have to keep messing with the air pressure loaded vs unloaded. I leased it and plan on getting another 1/2 ton for sure. What's not to like? Better mpg towing A lot better mpg solo More power than my v10 when towing It's like driving a hotrod solo Much better power band in each gear with new 8 speed transmission Better handling with and without the trailer Way cheaper lease deals Rides night and day better Oem break controller blows my old prodigy out of the water
