RE: Ford Van baseplate

After searching more i finally found the BlueOx baseplate. I am going to talk to the 4wd conversion place first as it might not work after the conversion is done and a custom bumper would do it. We use 4wd often in the winter so 2wd is out and after the van is done i will be selling my new Ram as i wont need both. Thank You for the help.

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

This probably happened near Winnemucca in Humboldt county. It was an ongoing problem with them stopping people and confiscating their cash. I am sure if you google it you can find more stories like this one. Some were as little as $2500. Not saying its right or wrong, but i am pretty sure they have a different Sherriff now.

RE: Ford Van baseplate

I havent called BlueOx and for some reason their website is difficult for me to navigate. Dummy i guess.

RE: 2015 Silverado Navigation up, are you kidding???

OEM nav makes for a good spot to stick your Garmin or TomTom to.

RE: Any Length Restriction Resources?

We a have a Model 38 mh that is just short of 40ft. I scour the reviews and if still not sure i call ahead. I tow a 20ft enclosed trailer (24ft overall) so i need to be careful. So far with tight rv parks while traveling i have had to back into a pull through space and currently had to unhook to park. This mh is very nimble and manuverable for its size. I cant imagime somewhere that i couldnt get in as long as i am not towing. If you want a big bathroom which is what we liked look at rear bath models. Ours is a Tiffin 38QRA and there are several brands with the same layout. I am going to start towing a van soon so life will be much easier by being able to unhook anywhere.

Ford Van baseplate

I tried google for a baseplate but only 02-03 my comes up. I am buying a 2014 E250 and having it converted to 4wd so i can flat tow it. Do i have to have a baseplate built for it ? Or does one already exist. Thanks, Nick

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

And in case nobody is reading my posts, i have both in my driveway, both are 2015 and both will do the job. It comes down to which one you sit in that feels the best to you. I drive the Chevy for work because thats what they bought me. I bought the Ram because they made me the best deal. The Ram does everything the Chevy does but it does it 1000 rpm lower. I like both trucks.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

How many times you gonna go up Ike ? Does it matter ? I cant leave my house and go anywhere without having to go uphill and both trucks do just fine.

RE: Tire speed ratings

On Maxxis website it just says high speed radial. I found the R rating in an add for them. I have never looked at mine.

Tire speed ratings

Only thing i can find about Maxxis M8008 is that its Speed rating is R which is 106mph. Good to go :)

RE: Sign of the Times

You can say what you want about what it takes to be in business. I walked away from CW and went to General RV of which has a similar business model with a person to get past when you go in the door. Differance is when i said i wanted to look without a salesperson tagging along they said ok let us know when you want help. I bought from General that day. They are doing well enough that my business didnt matter to them and i am happy for them, i am happy with where i bought. 2012Coleman, yes its personal, i am the one buying. They need me more than i need them. Lucky for them there are plenty that dont take it personal.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

As stated before i have both in my driveway. Both are 2015 crewcab 4wd shortbed with similar equip. The 6.0 mpg best empty is 15, the 6.4 best is 19. I still say it comes down to which one fits your butt the best as they will both do the same work.

RE: Washing during drought

Take it to a car wash where they recycle the water. Probably some truck washes along I5 also.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

The payload differance between my 2 trucks is about 300 lbs, not enough to matter. It still comes down to which one you feel comfortable in.

RE: Avoid Certain Areas

City-data website has everything you would want to know. Google the city you are wondering about and find the city-data site for that city and start scrolling through, it will give you all the info including weather, job info etc.

RE: GMs new 6.2 gasser in HD trucks ??

6.2 is a great engine and if it was in 2500 series truck there would be one in my driveway. We had a 2015 Yukon for about 6mo and i loved that engine.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

As i said earlier i have both. Both trucks mileage drops when towing. The 6.4 gets better mpg empty than the chevy and they both get in the 7-8mpg range towing. I still say it comes down to which one you feel the most comfortable sitting in and driving.

RE: 3/4 ton diesel vs diesel suv

I believe he is talking about when he gets somewhere and unhooks, not a daily driver. We had a Mercedes GL350 dsl and it was rated to tow 7500lbs but as was said didnt have much tongue weight capacity. The other thing is the mpg drops considerably when towing. Went fro 25mpg all day long and as high as 31 to 15 towing an enclosed trlr with a few motorcycles in it. I would look at a 1/2 ton GMC with 6.2 gas, when we had our Yukon it easily got 20mpg unloaded and was easy to drive. That engine is available in a pickup.

RE: Lets discuss Luxury Coaches in CA. Incident with a salesguy

There are plenty of dealers that are worth a plane ticket to go see.

RE: Dodge 6.4 hemisphere vs Chevy 6.0

I have a 6.4 with 3.73 and a 6.0 with 410, both are 2015. The 6.4 does everything 1000 rpm lower than the 6.0. Both are capable truck and it comes down to which one is more comfortable for you.
