RE: Cured My Double Towing State Law Issues, Pics Inside

What's the tow ratting of your MH? What does your trailer weigh? Was waiting for this question.. The whole package weights around 5600 lbs, Trailer, Jeep, Boat, as to the towing limit on motorhome it says 5000 lbs, HOWEVER I have added frame extensions from Ford chassis frame to hitch, hitch welded to frame extension, 10,000 lb ball/receiver with 1500 lb tonged weight limit, and air bags to level motorhome. Trailer has 4 electric brakes with brake away switch and two 6000 lb axels, This was thought out all the way thru for extra safety.. Also I don't have the inside of motorhome weighted down with lots of stuff, I don't really carry that much stuff sense I am not a full-timer. :C

Cured My Double Towing State Law Issues, Pics Inside

To many states said no to my double towing behind motorhome so I had a custom stacker trailer built at a tune of $4500.00. Trailer has two 6000 lb Henderson axels, 4 electric brakes, trailer valet, boat goes up and down by remote control on a winch cable pulley system, custom fit just for a Jeep Wrangler and small boat. Now I can travel all 50 states and Canada.. http://i.imgur.com/kdFQmBIl.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/kdFQmBIl.jpg

RE: Motorhome with towing capabilities - how do I approach this?

Honda Fit (2500lbs) flat towed behind a class A motorhome will be just fine and I see no weight issues, its only pulling the car not carrying the car, almost zero tongue weight.. But a 1985 motorhome "motor and transmission" might have a problem with the extra pulling weight. That's exactly what I was afraid about! Can I get a rig like that to stop in an emergency situation? I guess not ... hence a need for supplemental brakes. Still leaves the problem of (surely) being over the Mfg recommended GCWR. The insurance will have a field day if the worst happens, supplemental brakes or not. Maybe my dream ends here and back to a TT or Fiver it goes. I always liked the Airstreams but they also demand a well sized tow vehicle. Weight is not the issue as to the class A, I was referring to the old carburetor motor and transmission can it handle more towing weight, you can by installing headers, performance carb and a stronger torque convertor in transmission, it can be done.

RE: Tow limits

A class 2 hitch is rated at 3500 lbs. I understand the comments about toad vs trailer forces, but I do not see any wiggle room on this one. A class 2 hitch I believe has a 1.25" receiver with lighter duty components. Better to upgrade to a class 3 hitch and have someone qualified check out the whole setup. I suspect the rig is available with a 5000lb tow rating with just an upgraded hitch, which could be confirmed by calling the manufacturer. Not so true, I have a 3500lb hitch with a 350lb max tongue weight on my Jeep but it has a 2 inch receiver, it depends on who makes it.

RE: Towing wreck - overloaded hitch

To also add here I just finished my custom built trailer I am about 500lbs over the trailer weight limit on motorhome, but not my total GVWR.. However I have added reinforcement to hitch and back of RV and 10,000lb ball setup, 4 brakes on trailer, break away switch, two 6000lb axels and 4 tires that have a max weight carrying of 11,500 lbs and safety chains. Its a stacker trailer, carry's my Jeep on bottom and a small boat on top that raises up and down when Jeep is off trailer, I feel its very safe and strong.

RE: Towing wreck - overloaded hitch

If you look at the hitch and ball on back of van it appears to be fine, I don't think 450 lbs over the weight was the issue here, I think a poorly made trailer and no brake away switch and in proper chains was the issue here.

RE: We Have MOULD!!!

Store your RV here in Vegas during the summer months and I will guarantee all the mold will be gone by end of summer, better yet store it in Bullhead City AZ during August that will kill anything.

RE: Has this ever happened to you?

We had this happen in Las Vegas because of a sticker we had on our toad. Screaming profanity from his open window! Scary! We slowed down and he got in traffic. I like the idea of writing down license number and using phone to video the encounter. Welcome to Vegas, these Aholes around here in the south west do this a lot, I have encountered a few of these people, when ever you going less than 65 mph they seem to get very angry, I am thinking of a driving camera to catch these Aholes in action just in case they cause a accident, had a Ahole outside of Yuma slam on his brakes on the highway, wow that was close.

RE: Another season ends

I can't imagine having to winterize and put my rig away for 1/2 the year. I live in the southwest. We're just ending the 1st 1/2 half of the 2014/2015 season. From May thru Oct. most our trips are to the cooler mountains of Northern AZ. November begins the 2nd half of the 2014/2015 season. We'll make trips to the desert southwest or to the California beaches and coastal regions. Our rig is used year round. Love it! Amen X2 My winter camping season is starting, more camp fires and cooler days..

RE: Work Camper Couple Needed

2 people to work part time 4 days per week, if that was 20 hrs per person that equals a 40 hr work week for just free rent, hmm..

RE: For those who never had the unlimited verizon plan?

What did you do? Paid verizon for extra data to watch movies while camping? Gave up and stored movies on a hard drive or dvd's? Bought a satellite internet dish and plan? I'm considering some much needed hardware up grades and would like some tips and feed back on what data plans? (not sure why I asked that because verizon coverage is needed) or gear your using to keep entertained when is raining or night while camping. Thanks Been there done that with Verizon, I think I had the max 20 gig plan, was doing OK but one month I used it to much and the extra cost over top of normal bill was $210.00, I lowered the plan down to 8 gig just for cell phone use "4 cell phones in family" and don't plan on Version for my wifi or streaming movies ever again.

RE: Ford Transit vs Nissan NV--comparison

*Sticker price on the 2015 regular wheel base high-roof Ford, with a few options, was about $40K. *comes with Hankook tires; should be Michelins at this price point! . Just to let you know I think Hankooks are very good quality tires, less cost the Michelins but might be better. :B
