RE: 2015 Weekend Warrior At Giant RV

No problems with my WW (Knock on wood) but then again I own a 6.0h Ford diesel.. :D Wasn't it just the TAG style WW that had issues? Not just the tag, I had along with many other a 5th wheel with the smooth sides that the side wall supports weren't strong enuff and the was would sag. For the first 1 1/2 years I owened my trailer it spent more time at WW than at my house .

RE: 2015 Weekend Warrior At Giant RV

I'm still way satisfied with my 04 WW fs3000, I bough mine 4 1/2 years ago as a repo for $10,500, I have had no major issues, just replaced some rotted flooring in the storage compartment and a worn out tongue jack. I couldn't even imagine paying for a new one, I'm in it right now at the "river" 10 years old and still in very clean condition inside and out............https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/640x480q90/827/v92t.jpg I think most of the WW problems were with the traliers with the smooth outer walls.

RE: My first trip out, very overweight.

Here we go again !! You have allready been told by MANY that with that trailer you need a dually but you got mad at everyone because you knew what you were doing !! Now why ask people what you have allready been told the answer and now know ??? My thinking behind that was the differences in the trucks were the additional wheels. The drivetrain and everything else was almost identical. Now im just asking, is THAT what everyone was talking about?? Thats all i want to know. If that is what they were all concerned about then they were dead right. Those two extra tires will really stabalize it that much??? As for my original post, i was mad at one particular person who was being an ass unnecessarily. I thanked people numerous times for the advice. I knew i was going to have to make some changes. I now know exactly what i need to do... Besides the dually, the 4.10s are on their way also. My trailer is every bit as heavy as your and I have 373 gear's . In MY opinion you don't need 410 gear just make's your fuel milage go down.

RE: F-350 or F-450 for Raptor 4014?

I have a 2012 F350 DRW CC and it tows my Raptor 4014 just fine !! When I first got the trailer I had a 2007 F350 SRW which pulled it fine but got pushed around by the trailer so I upgraded to the dually .

RE: Tire question again for Voltage 3600

Les Schwab has stores in many towns I pass through and a reputation for excellent customer care. I will certainly keep an eye on these tires, just like all my tires. I consider the Tow Max an experiment. I've had Maxxis, Goodyear, and several other brands with only one minor tred delamination in 30 some years of towing. If the trailer had come with 16" rims, I would be trying LT's. It could be an expensive experiment. I have Towmax on my toyhauler and Les Schwab has replaced 7 tires under warranty in the last 2 years. Luckly so far I have cought them before they came apart an damaged my trailer. With that being said I have them on approx 6 pther trailers that are not as heavy as a tow hauler and have hod no problem.

RE: Picked up the new home. Road warrior

I felt the same as you. Swore I'd get my money's worth out of them. Checked pressures multiple times a trip. I have the Blow max on 3 car trailers , 2 boat trailers & asst other trailers with no problem. So when I purchased my toyhauler and it had the Blowmax on it I felt the same way that I was going to get some use out of them . I had read all about the stories how they blow up but never had any problems with them on my other trailers. First time out when I pulled into where i was going someone walked up to me and said did you see your tire ?? One of the tires was seperating , so i put the spare on and when i got home went to the tire shop and they gave me a new tire for free so i thought eveything was fine. WRONG . I had 5 more seperate with in one year and was lucky to catch them before they blew up but have since replace them not wanting to take any more chances. From what i have been told by the local tire dealer is that the Blowmax is fine on lighter trailers but he has seen nothing but problems with them on larger trailers. The way I see it is that "Lyrikz" doesn't agree with anything else anyone has tried to tell him so he will just hve to find things out for himself !!! To Bad !!

RE: Picked up the new home. Road warrior

I don't care what your real life weight police have to say !!! All I know from experience is that I won't tow that trailer with a single rear wheel truck.

RE: Towing a Toy Hauler with a F150 Ecoboost

People just can't help taking jabs at me because I opened a discussion on F150 towing. Do you really think I'll let someone take a jab at me and not respond?? What really pisses me off is when certain people say ******* about killing someone because I am unsafe. It's real easy for you guys with big bucks and big rigs to pick on the guys with the little trucks isn't it? Am I now taking a jab at you guys? yes I am, because I don't hear anything negative from the guys in my category. For the 3rd time, if I had a fat wallet of course I would buy a diesel! They are the biggest baddest trucks on the road. I already know that! You don't don't need to go negative just because I can't tow what you do. I maxed my limited budget on a loaded F150. I'm so very sorry that I'm not better off! As an inspector your right maybe I shouldn't ask here, I know safety better than most. Just thought I would try a forum and talk trucks with a few guys, now I know that was a mistake. When you tell me that I'm putting someone in danger it's you stepping over the line. I would not even consider what I'm doing if I thought for 1 second that it was a dangerous move And yes I probably know better than anyone. I've already towed the trailer home and it presented 0 problems. On my usual trips I will only be loading about 1K in the camper. I never carry water and suggest you don't either. It makes for an unstable load. Fill it if you must when you get close to your destination. If my TH ever presents a problem I'll sell the trailer. This is the 3rd one from the same dealer. I'm sure they wold love to sell me another. But from what the professionals have said it is very doubtful I will have a problem. I thought maybe I could have a constructive conversation on this forum, but unfortunately a few select had to make it personal. If you knew me better you would know I'm not the kind of guy you get away with making smart ass below the belt comments, or tell me I'm unsafe. Again I'm finding out some people talk big when they are behind a keyboard. Your absolutely right I don't need you guys to help me make a decision, just thought it would be nice to talk it over with a few new friends. Just wanted a friendly discussion. From the beginning I asked to keep this civil, but some just can't help themselves. Don't ask me not to respond when someone goes negative. YOU ASKED , WE TOLD , YOU DON'T LIKE IT

Have a beer guys, take a toke, just chill out. Take you own advise !!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Towing a Toy Hauler with a F150 Ecoboost

Yes you guys with your big diesels own the road and no one else should be out there. Big money, big trucks, and big mouths. I would venture to say I'm probably way safer than you with my little F150 because I have nothing to prove. You are what is known as an ASKHOLE which is a person that asks everyone questions than does the opposite of what most people tell you. Then complain about what you have been told to answer your question because it's not what you want to hear. Why don't you just stick with your youtube videos and saleman BS and the dealer that sold you on the truck because of all the claim they have made about what it can tow and don't waste everyone time asking questions !!!!!!!!!!!!!

RE: Towing a Toy Hauler with a F150 Ecoboost

They are reputable and stated they will not allow you to take off lot is tow vehicle is not adequate. Get this in writing and you're golden! They are salesmen they will all tell you that you want to hear to make a sale !!! You asked the people on the forum for advise and are listen to them because you really what that trailer and don't want to have to get a truck that will safely tow it.. In the end your going to do what you want , just hope now one has to see you upside down on the side of the road !!

RE: califnornia non commercial class A

Just change the decal listing the rigs weight(s) to 9,999 pounds. Any small print shop can do it for you... CHP goes by the weight rating on the tires !!! Actually, tire weight rating doesn't necessarily correlate to actual trailer weight. I don't believe CHP Commercial Cops are that ignorant. Do you think they are so ignorant there going to fall for a phony sticker ???

RE: califnornia non commercial class A

I showed up with my big trailer and was by myself. No questions asked, but it's a good point you bring up. I was asked no questions when I showed up with my big trailer.

RE: Rhino Frame

As incredible as our Rhino has been I learned it is not entirely indestructible. Found a few issues with my 2008 Rhino's frame this week. Just a suggestion that owners take a few minutes to really inspect their Rhino frame- It appears we damaged it initially during the Summer and it is now past repair. With the above in mind- our Rhino has been nothing less than a workhorse and a joy to own... Do you have a long travel kit on it ??? If you do the frame isn't the problem in my opinion . I have 2 Rhinos (2006-2008) that have been beat pretty hard and have never had any frame problems ..

RE: Rhino Frame

Wonder if that Rhino requires a helmet? Yes the Rhino requires a helmet
