RE: Rainforest settings for TC photos?

https://i.imgur.com/Oj6KOU2l.jpg Your TC is an interesting concept in truck campers. I also have a popup type TC manufactured by Northstar MFG The upper portion of my camper is vinyl with zippered windows and a crank is used to deploy the top. Good to hear from you.

RE: Longmont Co.

Don't know anything about the location you ask about. I would suggest this location. Colorado State Parks

RE: Process of elimination

I am a Consumer Cellular customer. Consumer Cellular uses AT&T network. I suggest you take a look their rates. I have two cell phones and you can also use your cell phone system with your home phone. Your home phone will have it's own number and is $10.00 per month. Your cell phones will vary dependent on how many minutes you subscribe to. consumer cellular

RE: 2 week trip to Yellowstone from Wisconsin all tips needed

Double posting is frowned upon. The poster stated he was new. Give him a break I'm sure he didn't double post on purpose. He probably has not been a member long enough to set around on this forum and criticize other posters. You might try being helpful but then what can one expect from an oldman!

RE: 2010 Palomino Thoroughbred T291

Palomino products are considered to be a bit on the low end of quality.

RE: 2003 Medallion by McKenzie Fifth Wheel

I would advise you to do more research on that era McKenzie. The past reports I have heard about left a lot to be desired.

RE: Interesting article on Nomadic lifestyle

Yes A very interesting article. A great lesson showing that even the best laid plans can be upset by unplanned events.

RE: Carbon monoxide detector going off

As you pointed out these sensors are super sensitive and will alarm with very little provation. I would suggest that it probably was your campfire smoke that caused the alarm. However I just replaced one in my TC that was only 2 years old. I've not only replaced the original but also installed a second battery operated unit as well. Better safe than sorry!

RE: Need Chevy/GMC Advice

I have the very same truck with 97000 miles, same rearend ratio. I have towed 2 dikfferent TT with this truck however the longest was 24ft. You are really pushing thelimit with the length of your current TT. I would say your only hope is a Hensley type hitch. I've always used Equalizer type hitches with shorter TT. The other main problem you have is that you have too much TT for the truck. I would not consider any weight load over a loaded 6000 lbs for my truck and then it really struggles in the hills of Colorado. That's one reason I have the TC I now have.

RE: Our Next Trip: Wyoming Roaming

Plan to have lunch at the Irma Hotel in Cody. Just the bar is worth the trip. IRMA Hotel Also if you have time Hwy14 and then 14A out of Ranchchester,Wy is a wonderful scenic trip if you don't have a big rig. Stop and visit the Bighorn Medicine Wheel on your way to Cody. MEDICINEWHEEL PM me if you need further info or suggestions.

RE: Cheapest State for Class A License Plate

It has always been a mystery to me why a person would decide to purchase a pricey RV, live in their state of residence and expect not to pay the going rate to put that state license on their vehicle. Kinda like cheating in my way of thinking! If you have the funds to buy an expensive rig you should have planned for whatever the fee is to license your choice of rv.

RE: West Yellow Stone to Casper Wy

Unless you are a first timer in the rig shown don't sweat it. I'm sure your rig will negotiate the conditions.

RE: Locating dump station - Mountain Park CO

There are no waste dumps anywhere along the Poudre River between Ted's Place (intersection of Hwy 287 and Hwy 14). There is a KOA at that intersection that use to allow dumping for a price. I don't know if that is currently the case. Guess you could call them. Going west up the Poudre River and Hwy14 there is a state Park campground near Gould,Co. They do have a dump but you need to have a park pass which you could purchase at The Colorado State Park Hqs just prior to Gould on the lest hand side of Hwy14. There is a city of Walden, Co dump on the NE side of town that is public for a donation the last time I was through there.

RE: Newbie to TC's questions

I have had several truck camper always on a 3/4 ton truck beefed up. They have been both hardside and popup. Last year I sold my Wolf Creek 816 with all the extra's on it. The camper was great but my travels take me into very rugged country and that is not only hard on campers but also trucks. I now have a Northstar 850 SC which I like real well. It will go anywhere the truck will take it and it is light weight and considerable more wind resistance that the Wolf Creek. It has everything but A/C including shower and cassette torilet. As stated in a previous post you can get a cold weather package for the popup portion of the camper.

RE: Golf Cart or A G M 12 volt Batteries

I have a Northstar 850 truck camper and the batteries are stored inside the camper under the seat of the dinette. This installation requires the 12 volt wet cell batteries be stored in cases that are vented to the outside of the camper. I will be going to 12 volt AGM batteries for safety sake as venting from two enclosed cases is a real pain to open the cases for maintenance purposes.

RE: Derringers

I use Modified Happijac's to connect to my frame mounted Torklift system. I've purchased longer threaded rods to reach the frame mounted torklift mount. Works fine on my Northstar 850.

RE: What Is On The Bottom of Your Truck Camper?

I bought an older Hallmark truck camper that I rebuilt. The plywood on the bottom was totally rotted out along with some of the super structure. I used 3/4" plywood to replace the bottom. I rolled 3 coats of Flexseal on prior to attaching the plywood to the camper. Flexseal is not cheap but it is a great product. I got mine at Lowes about $75.00 per gallon but have 1/2 can left.

RE: Wolf Creek 850 front box issues

I recently repaired a Hallmark that had a very thin sheet of plywood as that of your Wolf Creek. It had rotted over the years and was a poor design coming from the factory. I use 1/2 marine ply and 3 coats of Flex Seal. I applied the Flex Seal prior to installing the plywood and then just had to touch up where the screws into the frame were installed. If you haven't use Flex Seal it is a outstanding product. I then use aluminum angle to cover the outside edges.
