RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I weighed my truck the other day. Went to the Fly J and filled up fuel and DEF. I had the TL frame mounts on and my fast guns in the back seat. With wife and I in the truck we were 9300. About 500 more than I thought. I don't think me going on a diet is going to help much. I will be over my GVW by about 1k. I will be under my axle and tire ratings. I will of course be weighing it when we pick it up. I'm interested to see how close the wight is to the 4276lbs sticker they are putting on it. Of course that is a dry, no batteries weight. Time will tell.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

any idea when you should expect to be able to pick it up? I was told it would be off the production line on 1/19/17. Then about 5 or 6 days for shipping. So end of Jan I hope.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Nice! Did you work with a local dealer of direct? I went thru a dealer. He is 10 hours away so he's not local. They were the closest to me though.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

swing out brackets, they should be standard. Of course not, didn't you see the brochures? It can be carried on an F150! Slight exaggeration, but they did show it on a SRW last time I looked. I have seen those pics. I have also seen people who do carry it on a SRW 3500. They have upgraded to 19.5 tires. Still I'm not sure I could do that. To each his own.

Ordered Host Mammoth

A couple weeks ago I phoned in an order. (After a few weeks go negotiating) My wife and I have been in a few of them. This will be out 3rd TC and our 8th RV. 4 MH 24, 34, 40 and 45 ft. 2 other TC and a 5th wheel. We always have a MH and a TC at the same time. Now it is a 5th wheel and TC. They get used for diff things. Didn't get a lot of options. I feel I can do a better job with the batts, inverter, and the TV's. Ordered, double couch, leather or what passes for leather on both. 3 slides are now standard, no choice, thats what I was told. micro/convection sealed burner top upgraded escape hatch 9k btu AC gas electric hot water swing out brackets, they should be standard. power awning. It is prob diff from what most people would order but we have ben camping traveling for a long time. I will add 4 or 6 6v batts and a 3k inverter. I also have a pair of honda 2 k gen. I will only carry 1. I don;t think they have started the build. I was told it would be in around the end of Jan. Looking forward to it.

RE: 1st View EC 1165 and Host Mammoth

You could go with the 9000btu ac. It will run off the 2k honda. Thats what I did.

RE: Wireless air bag controls - reliable?

I had wireless air on my 2011. Loved it. I took it off when I sold the truck. It is in my garage some where. You will love it.

RE: 2014 Host Mammoth

When is your delivery date? I have mine ordered, but holding out until the 2018's are released. Jan 19, 2017 I do not know when the model years change. They start building it in a week.

RE: 2014 Host Mammoth

This is a great thread with some useful info on weights. I just ordered the same camper yesterday. Yes I know its 3 years old.

RE: Honda 2000 mod to run in it's storage compartment?

I've been running mine inside a compartment since 2007... Here are a couple posts with photos and info about my installation; Installation Additional noise reduction mods. It goes without saying, but if you choose to mount any generator inside any part of your truck camper, you must be absolutely certain that a) NO exhaust gasses can enter the camper, and b) there is sufficient airflow to ensure proper cooling of the generator. Cheers, -Mark That is one sweet set up. Two thumbs way up!

RE: 2017 host Mammoth triple slide

Contact Randall at Host for an option sheet with MSRP prices. We are getting 3x160w solar, Fantastic Fan instead of Heki, Full wall cab over wardrobe, Prewire only for TV's and some additional modifications to the umbilical connections. No one other than Lance is using cab over struts - I'm not sure any of the structures from other manufacturers were designed for an underside load. The Host camper height is 9.5' if you include the AC - Do you want store or carry items up that high on the roof? Rearview camera is a $900 MSRP option. Your F350 will be over GVWR and close to rear axle capacity with the Mammoth. If you also plan to tow behind your setup, you need a bigger truck. I suggest skipping the F450/4500 and going to a F550/5500. Randal can say what he wants, Bedlam has researched this camper thoroughly and when he tells you that a 550/5500 is what you need to carry this camper safety and comfortably you should listen to him and not your pocketbook. No offense but Bedlam can say what he wants. I will listen to the guy that works at the factory. Maybe Bedlams does weigh 6k. But everybody packs differently and gets diff options. Either way I didn't expect this kind of anger and hostility, I have better things to do and I wouldn't want to be responsible for someone getting upset and having a stroke.

RE: 2017 host Mammoth triple slide

According to Randell at the factory the weight sticker is VERY close to what the unit weighs. Notice I said there is a base weight and then a weight for the unit as it is equipped. IE all options. I also said it is a dry weight. Not wet and loaded. Everyone is different in that aspect of RVing. If I buy one I will weigh it several times to see how it comes out. Every unit has the weight sticker. It's by the door. It shows base wight and what the unit weighs with the options on that unit. Again Randell told me most are leaving the factory at 4300 to 4750. The 3 I looked at were all in that range. All had 3 slide outs and 2 had the gen set.

RE: Truck Camper Warehouse

I was there a couple weeks ago. Sites were full but Bill told me to park by the building and plug in. There was another TC doing the same thing. Most of the sites were taken by people getting new TC.

RE: 2017 host Mammoth triple slide

I looked at 3 in person. They have a weight sticker on them . Base weight and as equipped weight. most are between 4350 and 4700 as equipped dry. Add about 600 lbs for water and propane if you run with full tanks. Then its food and stuff you bring with you. For my wife and I thats about 350LBS max. Good luck

RE: 2017 host Mammoth triple slide

Wife and I drove 1200 miles round trip in 55 hours a few weeks ago to go there and see them. Had a great time and the Hosts are very nice. We are very close to ordering one.

RE: Going to the Sun Road - Size Limit?

I have done it a few times in different cars. Not a big deal. Just take your time. I saw class c on it and plenty of DRW trucks. I would drive my truck over it without the camper. I think I'm to tall with the camper.
