RE: I have 15K to spend on a tow vehicle. I need help!

Thanks! Exactly the type of opinions I'm looking for. I have 2 young kids so I would like a crew cab. I don't mind the 5.4L. It does feel a little rung out with 7000lbs behind it but a 250 might be different. I can find the odd 250 with the 6.2 but the bodies are usually in terrible shape. I'll check out a 250 5.4L. Thanks! I had a 2010 F-250 with the 5.4 (it was only 8 months old when I got it - had been a rental). It was a very nice truck - but the 26 gallon tank caused lots of stops. And wasn't much fun climbing in the mountains. I just sold an 03 2500 Burb with the 8.1 that would have been below your price range. If you already have a work truck, why not get an SUV? I would like a 3/4 ton for the stability. Pulling a 29ft TT with a 30 mph crosswind in a half ton takes about 2 years off my life everything I do it! I have the same (GMC instead of Chevy, see sig), and it is very stable - and can accelerate up the mountains if needed. Your two kids might want to bring friends sometime.

RE: Bad experience Lancaster KOA

If this is the CG they sure have more positive comments than negative...and by a wide margin. Just saying.... I went to your recommend review site and 18 out of 32 reviews said that the new owners were RUDE. In your words, just saying, whatever. There are 63 reviews - 32 are excellent, 13 are good, 7 are average, 6 are poor, 5 are terrible.

RE: It finally fits!!!!

As you can see from Google street view, it is nice to live in an old neighborhood that has no HOA or covenants. OK....just HOW did you snap shot and get an url to post it from a google earth picture?? :B Big difference between earth and street view :R Print Screen key, paste into Gimp Editor, cropped, then uploaded to one of my sites. Google has taken 4 pics of my house - the dog is in every one of them (as well as the one pic that Bing maps took)

RE: Amazing what people tow with!

I went to an RV dealer yesterday to pick up my sons new travel trailer for him. I was in the PDI section where several new owners were getting the walk thru and their WD hitches installed. This guy was one TT away from me. What you see is the finished setup. I told the sales guy that I was working with that, that guy needs a truck. He told me that according to the WD installers it's just the soft rear springs on the Jeep causing the sag and some bags would cure the problem. The guy with the Jeep was taking off for California. The dealer I was at is in Portland. It was actually quite funny in a way. I was picking up a 21', 3000lb dry TT using a 12 Ram 4x4, CC LB diesel. The guy with the Jeep just kept looking over at my truck. Wonder what he was thinking. On the serious side it just amazes me what these dealers like this allow this guy to leave. http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y422/goducks13/Overweight_zpsglfi7tdc.jpg I hope that wasn't the finished setup - I'd hate to see him towing with the slide out :R

RE: Casey Nocket sentenced for making her mark!

People like her and the Boy Scout leaders need to account for there stupid destruction.One Boy Scout leader. Should not be condemnation of them all. I beleave there were 2 in that group tipping stones. Maybe I was wrong. Money fines do not have much impact. Jail time and some hard labor in the parks might help. One tipping, one watching, another recording.

RE: Getting shocked.

I would suggest something like this Voltage Regulator - it lets you know the status of the ground without having to go inside and look at a meter plugged in.

RE: Students Blamed for Trashed Camp

Leaving behind coolers, tents, etc. I can tell you I was way too poor in college to leave something like that behind! I'm even poorer now - I would pickup any tents or coolers that others left.

RE: Blue Ox Sway Pro - Does it smooth out ride in TV?

Our trailer is at the upper end of the TW allowed for the Hensley. I have to measure TW each time (and usually move stuff around) to be sure we are under the 1400 LB limit. If I just pack normally and carry a bit of water, we would be in the 1600 to 1700 TW range. Exceeding the capacity of the Hensley. If 1700 is 12 percent of total trailer weight, then 1400 would put it under 10 percent - could this be part of your rough ride problem?

RE: James Island County Park fatality

They were local, so assuming they weren't camping. I can't imagine what they are going through.

RE: Camper satisfaction

Bought the one in the sig new on Halloween in 2009. Only problem - the manufacturer didn't put the hood vent directly over the stovetop, but halfway back. Cannot use the stovetop at all because of this (first time I tried it became obvious very quickly that the air was becoming unbreathable). I was only trying to make coffee, as I do all my cooking outside (learned my lesson in the old trailer when I fried some fish). I can still use the oven if needed. One thing I miss about the old hybrid we had - you had windows on all four sides and could always get a breeze. Now we only have windows on two sides. Um,, I don't understand this ? Why was the air becoming unbreatable ? I rarely ever use my stove vent when cooking. All it does is remove the cooking odors. It is not there for any other reason. I love my old TT and I am very satisfied with it. Your burning propane in a small enclosed area. More power to you if you can stand it without any ventilation.

RE: Draining fresh water tank

I would think the small drain as the majority here have stated having (and which I also have) is probably a safety feature - think about the traffic behind you if a larger valve all of a sudden worked loose while you are on the highway.

RE: FYI Regarding SC SP

All SC SP's I have reserved online have said this for years (including Wateree).

RE: Question for Blue Ox Sway Pro owners

If you re-read my original post, the front of my truck was on the blacktop drive making the back artificially low making it impossible for my power jack to lift it enough to make it easy. In reality, I see this condition often and needed a solution better than the supplied wrench. If you see this often and find it a problem - why not remove the bars at the front check-in? You have a power jack so it would take no more than 2 minutes. REMEMBER to pull the jack up before you move - I made one unusable one time by not remembering.

RE: Opinions on great Michigan Campgrounds For Young Children

The great thing about state and federal parks is they are cheaper and usually have some body of water and hiking trails. Kids love water - whether it be a river, lake, or ocean. Swimming, tubing, and fishing along with some hikes will keep them entertained all day (and sleep through the night).
