RE: DIY Teardrop Camper

A man can do anything with the help of a beautiful lady and a Golden with name Bailey! I have a Golden Bailey also. Good luck and I'm certain you effort will be rewarding. http://i1275.photobucket.com/albums/y451/1mtnman1/Traveling%20with%201mtnman/IMG_0532_zps9f742e8a.jpgwidth=640

RE: DirectTV / Wineguard

My experience is that a Direct TV non HD Dish will not support a HD receiver so you might want to check that out prior to buying a Direct TV dish from any source. I would like to hear from anyone who has attempted this same process. I made the mistake of going from a non HD receiver to a HD receiver. I now have a HD dish which is way too large to carry in my truck camper.

RE: Read this before buying from Camping World

jbhouk sounds like you need to take a minute and address a letter or E-Mail to Marcus. He seems to have not received any previous E-Mail from you. At this point you appear to be the one who is unreasonable. Sometimes we need to take a deep breath and take advantage of an opportunity when one appears. Good Luck

RE: Newbie here...

You will get a lot of advise regarding your Tundra and what it is capable of hauling as far as a camper is concerned. Let me just say that you will possibly not be able to find a camper with a bath in a weight that your pickup will handle. Check your drivers door post to see what the GVWR and other weight capability that you truck allows. Most trucks have a sticker in the glove box that states what your maximum hauling capacity is. This will give you an idea as to how large a camper your truck will handle. Most truck campers that include a wet bath will weigh close to 2800-3000 lbs when loaded ready to go.

My "rich" neighbor just brought one of these home to match his new Ford F350 dulley. Redwood His is the 35 foot model and is it beautiful. Auto leveling and the works!

RE: Looking at a TC for an 09 GMC

I have a similar TV although my truck is a 2005 with the 6.0. I would install the Torklift tiedowns regardless of what camper you choose. You will probably have to replace your OEM shocks with Blistiens or some other brand. I went with a special camper shock. I also installed Timbrens which I would recommend. You will probably need to install Torklift Stableloads as I did. Now after all this prep you will ask yourself the question "Do I really want a truck camper"?? This is just my take with my 3000 lb ready to go Wolf creek. Your weight will probably be close to that regardless of what camper you get. Good luck with your vision.

RE: How level is your truck camper loaded?

I don't spend a lot of time worrying about whether I am totally level or not. I've slept a lot on the ground in my years as a backcountry ranger and as long as I didn't fall out of my sleeping bag or slip to the bottom I was fine. Level to me is if the door does not close when you want it open.

RE: wind river canyon, wyoming

I think I know the campground that you are questioning. We have stopped there a couple of times to let the dog walk and have lunch. If it is the one on the west side of HWY 20 in the canyon it is quite nice but probably noisy with the traffic coming down the canyon. It wouldn't be my favorite place with nicer camping spots to the west of Cody and north.

RE: What do I need?

You could purchase a Direct TV HD dish for about $60.00 and a tripod for another $60.00 and use your current receiver. Then you could learn to setup you dish aimed at the satellite you desire. And I might add you can also be frustrated like those of us who use this method. .

RE: Converting 12 volt coach batteries to 6 volt

I have a 2000 Tiffin Zephyr. It has 4 deep cycle 12 volt batteries that power the coach. The batteries need to be replaced. I have heard that using 6 volt batteries is a more efficient and economic system. Can my system be converted? If so, how would I proceed? Thanks, Phil This will help you understand what it takes to switch from 12 volt to 6 volt. 12 volt side of life

RE: Colorado and beyond- July 2014 trip

Do you have reservations completed for your stay in Colorado? If not may i suggest Boyd Lake, a Colorado State park in Loveland. BOYD LAKE In Colorado Springs I would suggest a couple of campgrounds. Muller or CheyenneMtn You will need to get reservations right away if these might be your choice.

RE: First Major Trip - Questions For You!

If you are not in a rush like you said you were not i would stay around 60 mph. You will get better mpg plus being new to towing you will be traveling at a safe speed. As for Walmarts, I never use them but rather stay in small communities RV furnished parks, fairgrounds and such. You can find these spots by using the web site; FREECAMPS Too bad you don't have more time to really see the real Colorado.

RE: Anyone use TorkLift A7200 Stable loads on their GMC 3500?

You will be better served by doing a search on STABLELOADS.

RE: More suspension help!

My truck is the same as yours except I have the 6.0 gas engine. My camper as you can see is a Wolf Creek 816 which is a bit lighter than yours. Everything depends on how it is loaded as to final weight. I installed Timbrens first which help a lot as the timbrens ride on the axle when you are loaded and give much more suppofrt that your OEM stops. I then installed Torklift Stableloads which really brought the rearend up 2.5 inches. My Stableloads are quick release so you can disengage them when not loaded. I also installed Bilstein rear shocks. They are BE5-A831-HO which are specially made for hauling acamper. They were $168.00 at ESHOCKS Hope this helps.

RE: load and towing capacity

Your problem is going to be finding a camper within the weight restrictions you have stated. Historically most all truck campers weight more than advertised especially loaded. Will you TV handle the weights you have stated? The answer is it surely will. You may have to beef up the suspension some due to the tongue weight of your trailer.
