RE: Weight Sticker Math Exercise

Can't the weight of the wheels, tires, and axles be subtracted from the total scale weight? After all they rest on the road not on the truck. Got to be about 700 lbs. credit right there, right? Wrong? No.

RE: 2015-16 Rams

Will this onslaught of critical recals for Ram trucks ever end?? The next problem people with this will have to endure is waiting for the parts to come in...Sure glad I got out of the one I used to own.. B.O. Now this is funny!!!!!!! At least I thought it was ment as a joke. If not, you don't have much in the way of critical thinking skills. I'll go with, it was a joke.

RE: Winter Storage of RV

My 5th wheel is inside, but no heat in bldg. I def winterize it. I wish I lived where I didn't have to. It can go to zero inside the bldg. I have seen the pink stuff get slushy in the toilet bowl. Maybe some day I can go south for the winter.

RE: Host double couch TC

I think the truck will come in around 8100 with full fuel and 2 people.

RE: 2015-16 Rams

Mike, the bad part of the frame recall is that every dealer has the ability to run serial #'s and that tells the whole story. Then the trade in value is automaticly adjusted. I really feel for the values that everyone will see. I'm surprised that the attorney's aren't starting class action law suits. I hope it all works out. So your saying every vehicle subject to a recall goes down in value????

RE: 2015-16 Rams

I don't know if anybody knows this, but when you trade this truck in or sell privately, frame damage has to be disclosed. That is a federal law. It's not damage, it's a recall…………………...

RE: Host double couch TC

I think the 3500 will be overloaded if you fill all the nooks and crannies. You really need to be looking at the chassis cab models from Ram or Ford for these models. You will most likely only have about 5000 lbs payload available unless you are looking at a base trim standard cab 2wd gasser. I have the truck in my sig now. On the last trip with 4 adults and all their stuff, full fuel, full water, full food, empty grey and black. We were 13,340 with everybody in truck. We are losing 2 adults and their stuff. Now, I realize the Host is heavier than the AF I have now. So I figure I'm losing 500Lbs from the 2 adults. That gives me 1140lbs more untill I hit 14K. The Host prob weighs about 1200 more than the AF. So I'm not bad, prob a little over. I can go with bags etc, all the usual stuff. Wife and I don't load a ton. We take what we need and thats it. Even 4 of us didn't come close to filling the AF. I'll let the weight police hash this out. I would love a RAM 550 and a cutom bed but cost is crazy. I also tow a 5th wheel at times.

RE: Host double couch TC

Thanks for putting the clicky in. I know it's heavy, it will be going on a 2016 RAM DRW, GVW 14K. I would love to see this in person .

Host double couch TC

Has anybody seen one in person. I'm thinking of ordering one. There is no dealer close to me. Just wanted to hear other thoughts on this one. My wife and I like the pics and video on the Host web site, but it is an 8 hour drive to the dealer and I don't think he has one yet.....Would love to check out the factory but I work full time................If only I didn't have to work.........Bother

RE: Trip information

I would think that if you are listing the dry weight at 8K+ then you traveling weight will be somewhere close to 10K. At 20% for pin weight on a 5th wheel you are looking at 2000 pounds on your Tundra. Well over it's rating. I previously had a Tundra, so I know how good of a 1/2 ton it is, but I would never have tried to tow a 5th wheel with it. Just my 2 cents. Dave You should listen to this person. it is pretty straight forward.

RE: Upgrade for Alaska?

Sounds like a great rig. Would love to see it. Enjoy!!!

If it's handgun ammo I wouldn't even try. They will think you have a hidden handgun. For Alaska take a shotgun, declare it, do the paperwork, pay the small fee, make sure you have the ammo stored separate from the gun, and you're good. You are wasting your time if you're taking a handgun for bears anyway...not enough firepower, bring a 12 gauge. Besides you are just as likely to run into a grizzly in northern BC or Alberta as you are in Alaska. This, I have done it twice, no issues. At the check point we spent about 30 seconds on the gun and 15 minutes discussing what poultry products we had.............

RE: Attention Weight Police

It's good to know that the people on here know more than the Ford engineers that designed the truck. Maybe they have the 350 badge so they can sell that truck for more profit than the 250. I mean since there is no difference in them.
