even recently saw a Honda Odyssey pulling a 30Ft Airstream TT. I saw a commercial with the same thing the other night. DW and I laughed about that one.

RE: White knuckles for 600 miles!

I highly recommend hitting a cat scale. My rig is 38ft tip to tail and weighs 9100lbs. That is scaled weight. I have a dual cam and I have the 1200 lb bars. Mine has started to wander a bit because I need new ball joints in the front end but other than that the TT tows like a dream.

RE: honest advice on a truck for towing 10000lbs

Not a 5er but our 38ft TT is 9100 loaded. That is scale checked. I bought a 06 Dodge Cummins. My choice was made by the following. How much I was willing to spend. Then find all vehicles that fit in that category. Researched all the diesels and it seemed that the 06 Dodge had the fewest owner complaints for major issues from what I could find. It was also the better for mileage as it did not have the emissions stuff on it. I get 20-25 on the highway, 16 in town, and 10-14 towing the TT. I never drive over 70 with it loaded or unloaded because mileage drops exponentially.

RE: Looked at new F450 at our State Fair

Yeah they are nice looking with nice options but to have to go to 450 for the DRW and that sticker price is a shocker. They did go back to 19.5 on them.

RE: Busted lock

well it turns out that she put the key in upside down then broke it off trying to turn it. I was able to get the broken piece out without drilling it but destroyed the lock in the process. Got the lock out but even the local rv dealer doesn't have one long enough to replace it. Grrr. Local locksmith is ordering me one that should fit.

Busted lock

Man..... DW broke the key off in the lock for our outdoor kitchen. Naturally it broke off before it unlocked the lock so now I have to drill it out.

RE: RVing with a newborn

Our youngest daughter was 2 weeks old when we took her on her first trip. We had a hybrid at that time. It was fine. just like at home. Don't let them get too much sun and try to keep the biting insects away.

RE: Seems like alotta trailer for the tow vehicle

getting stopped could be an issue sure, but as mentioned I am sure that there are trailer brakes on it. How long is the trans gonna last in that little thing?

RE: Black tank and toilet paper and chemicals

Angel soft and a built in tank flusher is all I have ever used. Biggest thing as everyone has said is to make sure there is plenty of water in the tank before you dump. If you have to stand on the flush pedal for a few minutes to fill the tank before you break camp to go to the dump station.

RE: adding a leaf spring

I have to say it depends on how it is done. My 1ton Dodge rode like a boat. The suspension was squishy. I took it into a local shop to have them check it out. They recommended re-arching the leaves and adding one. They said it would lift the back about an inch. I was apprehensive but went with it. When I got it back he walked me through what they did. They split the leaf packs out and re-arched the existing ones and added another one to the center of the pack so it is like a factory leaf pack. Not one of those thick overkill add-a-leaf kits. They then put new shocks all the way around. $900 out the door. I am very happy with the work and you can't tell that it is taller.
