RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Got back from FL on Sunday. 2100 miles total. The truck handles very well. My 16 truck was good but this is way better. Just feels a lot more stable. I filled up in SC and we had full water and empty gray and black. 3 adults and food etc. 16,660 total. 5160 front.and 11500 rear. Way under all the specs but I figured I would be. Camper sits higher on this truck but not a big deal for me. I have to reach a little higher to un lock it. My computer showed 8.6mpg for the trip. I did not check by hand. With 74 gallons on board I can go a long ways. I really like that I can pick where to buy fuel from. We stopped in WV at Tamarack for the first night, cold with a little snow but the furnace kept us warm. Second night was FL/GA line. Warmer but still ran the furnace some. Stayed at Fort Wilderness and used there electric for heat and hot water. Heat not needed that much. Got to visit with our son who is in the DCP this semester. He is doing well and having fun. I am going with the same tool boxes that Bedlam has. They are ordered and should be here next week. I never had so many people stop by and ask questions about the TC or the truck. I have stayed here many times in 3 different MH. A few questions here and there. This trip, everybody had questions about the truck etc...

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

At the rear my roof is right at 12 feet. Then there is the AC to think about. Also, when I swing the ladder down to climb on the roof. I need a step ladder just to get on the attached ladder. It sits pretty tall. I can see my truck tail lights even when the TC is on. Leaving this afternoon for FL. I will let you know how it goes when I get back.

RE: Yellowstone campground lengths?

I have found the opposite to be true. I had a 40 ft DP. They would tell me they don't have anything to fit me. I call back and change my length to 35ft and presto i have a site. I get there and the site is 60ft long. For years I have done this and never an issue. I used to say my 45 footer was 38, never had a problem. I talked with some hosts one time and they told me the rule they used was make the site twice as long as someone asked for. This way no one came back and complained. If they didn't have one twice as long, the answer was sorry we don't have anything. This was in Yellowstone Grant campground. I have been there 9 times.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Engine pulls fuel from the 22 gal mid mount tank and as it goes down it is auto filled from the rear 52 gal tank. That is my understanding of it. I filled it and the DEF today and weighed it on the way to the outfitter. Front 5560 and rear 3820 total 9380 with me in the seat and all 3 tanks full. Bed is supposed to weigh about 1200 lbs. Bed should be installed by tomorrow. GVW is 19500 and FAWR is 7250, RAWR is 13500. The stock tires are rated even higher for there respective axles.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

OK, I brought the truck home last nite. They took care of me $$ wise for the mistake. 9.4 ft CM steel bed gets installed Monday. I already have short fast guns, should be good for fridays trip. I love the truck for the 15 miles I drove it in the pouring rain.
