RE: Disney fort wilderness

How much do u want to pay? I have stayed in all of them many many many times. I would think you would be fine in any of them. We go to the parks every day we are there from very early in the am to very late at night. Thats just my family, they love Disney. The site for me is just a place to sleep and take a shower. Your family may be different.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Unfortunately that was with the tail gate off. Thats why the fast guns were in the cab with me. Also my heavy duty rubber bed mat was in also. I already know I will probably be over 14k when loaded. It's just a matter of how much. Will it be 1400 lbs or 500 lbs. I will be weighing it a few times when I get it and I will post all the weights. Also remember my empty weight was with full fuel and def and all the tie downs etc. Wife and I etc. I use 6 volt batts because I have used them before. My first 2 coaches used 12 volt batts. After that I always had 6 volt and they lasted longer. I think it has something to do with heaver plates in the 6 volt vs 12 volt batts. Either way I like the 6 volt ones. I probably could get away with using 4 but i like 6 better. It will be wired up so I can run the entire camper off the inverter. It does have an auto transfer switch. So if I'm plugged in to shore or gen set it just passes thru. I would not attempt to run the AC or the fireplace off the batteries for very long at all. Even with the truck ideling I think it would be a bad idea. I have dual 440 amp alternaters on the truck but still wouldn't let it go for long. Easier to just fire up the Honda 2k.

RE: Use of utility bed

Yes people have. Look around on the site. a lot of guys will mount them on a 5500 chassis. Knapheid (spelling) makes a stock one that will work I believe.

RE: Payload for my Ram 3500 Truck

11500 - 7200 = 4300. But as said above you need to see what the truck weighs ready to travel. Fuel and people have weight also. My truck with full fuel and 2 of us is 9300. More than I thought.

RE: Arctic Fox to Introduce a Triple-Slide Camper

Awesome, I can't wait to get in one. Looks a lot like a Host mammoth but what the heck. Thats a popular camper. Also how many places can you put slides on a TC.

RE: truck camper mpg vs. fifth wheel

I have pulled a 5th wheel and hauled the same TC with both my 2011 and my 2016. I get about the same MPG with either. About 11.7 according to the computer with both.

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 of 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: 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.
