RE: 2014 Ram 3500 Laramie Longhorn

It could have been a buy back for Ram. And then sold at auction.

RE: What to look for when shopping for a truck to tow 5th Wheel?

Keep in mind one thing you get with a diesel over a gasser is the exhaust brake. If you tow in the mountains once you have one you'll probably never be without it. The first time your in the rockies you will be glad you have it.

RE: 2017 Detroit North American International Auto Show

I wish they would focus on reliability instead of gadgets. I Don't need 7 cameras but would like a Diesel motor that would go 350k miles without needing replaced. I guess I'm in the minority. https://www.cumminshighmileageclub.com/ X2 these babies will go for a loooooong time.

RE: Heading out West again for 2016

We plan on making the trip to Yellowstone in June-July and was wondering if it would easier to take 90 up though Montana instead of going straight across via though Cody I have gone this route many times in 40' DP pulling a toad. NO PROBLEM AT ALL. Enjoy the drive it is very scenic.

RE: Fast gun security

I use the locks made for the fast guns. Mostly because I don't want them to come loose. Theft protection is second.

RE: Host Everest vs the Eagle Cap 1165

The Host Everest and Mammoth have completely contained water, grey, and black tanks. They use block foam as the insulation, there is no fiberglass bats anywhere in it. We also ordered with the double pane glass windows. We've used our Mammoth down to zero degrees f, and it was perfectly comfortable with the slides out. The bigger problem I have found is the number of penetrations in the wall determines how well it keeps heat in; the slides seal super tight in 3 of the 4 points using bulb seals inside and slider seals on the outside (double seal), with a 2 little holes in the bottom where the gear track is using a slider seal. We get more cold air off the vents than from the slides, and once I put the pillows in the vents it stays much warmer. I prefer the camper to NOT be 100% air tight; you need some air exchange to keep moisture under control. The previous Lance we had was really bad for this; we kept getting a wet walls in it due to the lack of insulation. The Host Mammoth has not had this problem. Good to know, thanks for the post.

RE: 2015 Dodge 3/4 Ton Really Not Camper Compatible?

also, megacab DRW RAM trucks still only have a 6.5 foot bed. I only wish they would make a long bed megacab.

RE: Ram 3500 and air suspension option

I like that finned diff cover...................Thanks for the info on the air ride, I ordered it. Also your posts on the B%W tun over hitch with companion convinced me to buy it last summer. So glad I did. This is our first 5th wheel and the hitch was super easy to use and very secure. Love it. I will be getting the B&W for the 5th wheel prep in the new truck. Looking forward to this summer.

RE: 2015/2016 Ram owners

I don't understand, buy back/sold back a couple of you are taking about on these older trucks? Are you taking trade in? No way a 2011 gets $45k trade in value unless all the extra got wrapped into the new price. New 2500 would need bags to support a heavy camper just like older trucks. Ram didn't magically make trucks that hold the world up. Fwiw with 80psi in the tires or the 19.5 you got, it's going to ride like a lumber wagon anyway so may as well keep up the search for a leaf sprung truck. its simple really. Ram was forced to give me NADA, 40920 plus 10%, that brought it to 45k. I didn't trade, they just bought the truck back. I met the people doing it and they took the truck and gave me a check. A couple weeks later I went and ordered a new one. My 2011 was a great truck but for that money it is going back.

RE: Question for Ram 6.4 Hemi owners

I'd hang tight until Ford brings out the V10 ECO boost... twin turbo/intercooled 600hp @ 4500rpm / 847lbs-ft at 1900rpm on 87 octane. 25 mpg highway Pipe dream :B Nice dream though for the year 2016 Releasing April 1st I heard :) Won't have all them diesel issues and high maintenance costs... you know, like $50 more for an oil change on a truck that depreciates $1000 a month ... (oh oh the D word...) $1000 a month. After 52 months of ownership my 2011 NADA is 41k. I paid 49k for it. I don't think I lost 1k a month. In fact RAM just bought it back for 45k. I'm pretty happy. I never had this truck back to the dealer even once. Never had an issue. But for that money I sold it and ordered a new one.

RE: 2015/2016 Ram owners

Yes, I just did the same thing. Sold back my 2011 3500 DRW Long Horn for 45k. This was 4k less than I paid for it 4.5 years and 42k miles ago. Ordered a new Limited with all the bells and whistles.

RE: Host Everest vs the Eagle Cap 1165

Don't forget the Host Mamoth with the duel couch option. A 6ft couch and a high low table, plus a 4ft love seat with pop up foot rests. I am dreaming of one.

RE: Weight Concern

Listen to the others. Do yourself a favor. Buy a bigger truck, you will be much happier in the long run.

RE: Truck camper with utility bed???

I don't stop at scales here in PA with my DRW 1 ton GMC dump truck. Is it legal in your state? Frankly I doubt so. So what is to the bragging about breaking the law? Bragging,,,,,Really! Yes it is legal, if it wasn't I would stop. Not all states have the same laws. If I had a UB I would not have to stop either.

RE: Truck camper with utility bed???

Sorry d3500ram Don’t have any close up pictures of that connection, Had to take off the factory tie downs as they were under the side overhang and would have dented the top of the bins, drilled a hole in the front jack bracket and put in a “quick link” chain link , have a short piece of chain and a turnbuckle onto another quick link to the truck tie down. The factory brackets were just lag bolted with two small lags(1/8”) in each bracket(Not very solid). As I stated “It doesn’t move a bit” I will try get some pictures later for you. I don’t understand why there are issues with the DOT down there. Unless you are running commercial plates here you don’t have to stop at any scales, What about the guys with those “Diesel Pusher” motor homes, they are in a way heavier class than we are. Don’t see any of them at the Scales? I don't stop at scales here in PA with my DRW 1 ton GMC dump truck.
