RE: What PU to Buy

I tow my Wind River 250RDSW that is just a hair over 30 ft, 6900 pounds, with my 2014 Ram 2500 diesel. I go all over the Pacific Northwest and the grades, up and down, are like they aren't there. 12-13 MPG. You want to use a 1/2 ton go right ahead, some do and love it. There are countless threads on this and this is just one more. I say get the biggest, most powerful truck you can afford and be done with it. Thats' JMHO.

RE: New RV problems

Sometimes I long for the days I slept on the ground under the stars. I could shoot in every direction and never worry about another person being out there. I am getting way too soft in my old age.

RE: Are you kidding?

Thank you!!!!!!!! now I know why I put up with all the "stuff" I do, to live in So Cal. Just getting ready for that earthquake that is overdue, could happen in the next 1000 years, or not. Then I'll be full timing it in my TT.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

I travel with my 115 pound Bernese Mtn Dog that I also show at times. We do not go to dog parks. He does not need to meet your dog. He stays on the end of his 6 foot leash and we have a great time. A dog park is a great place to have your dog pick up bugs, get sick, or in a fight. Any one of those will spoil a vacation. To those of you that love dog parks, enjoy. I don't hate them.

RE: New RV problems

The more I read on these forums, the more I realize that the RV industry is filled with people that are not the "sharpest sticks in the bundle". If you buy an RV, I don't care how much it costs, be prepared to fix some stuff on it and modify it to some degree. The best RV to buy is one that has been owned by a perfectionist for a few years. How many RV's are designed so that the toilet seat will not stay up?

RE: Any gain from WD on a dodge 3500

I had an 03 Ram Diesel and would not think of towing without a WD hitch and a sway control. Even just a friction sway device. If you think the 03 tows great, my 14 Ram diesel just hits it out of the park for towing and I will still use a WD hitch. I plan for that second that I need all the control I can get. Then pray that second never happens.

RE: FOUND!!!!!!!!!!! [Our travel trailer was stolen.]

I really hope they find your TT. If I was going to guess, I would think it's not going to be used as a travel trailer and is probably already set up where it will be used. It's very hard to stop a thief, all you can do is slow them down. Chain the tires, remove the control cable, disable the tongue jack, remove the tongue. The GPS idea is a good one. With everybody looking it will probably be found.

RE: Upgrading to LT 16' tires from 15" is this alright?

What is the rating of the TT axles?

RE: RPM's when towing uphill?

With my 03 2500 and the Hemi pulling my 6500 pound TT through Col and Utah I was hitting 4500-5000 RPM's. Hated it so I sold it to my son and got the diesel. he just sold it with 130K miles on it, no issues. he hemi is made to spin, if you don't like it, get a diesel. But, 4000rpm's will not ever hurt that truck.

RE: Firewood.. what do you do?

I enjoy a campfire as much as anyone. I used to carry some cut, scrap lumber for it. But now with all the rules and regs about fires, many place do not allow ground fires. So today I ordered a "Campfire in a can". Kind of pricy but I will be able to use it anywhere. It really puts out the heat and flame but yet can be put on a plastic matt. It does use propane but it's not much more than the cost of firewood, possibly less, with no smoke so you can sit anywhere around it . And when you want to go inside, you just turn it off. It won't replace the real thing but we must adapt to the new rules. They have quite a web-suite for those that want to see one in action.

RE: Whats your favorite camprground in Glacier?

I am starting to do my search for a Aug of 15 trip there. I would really like elect. My TT is 30 ft. I am coming from the west side and a Private CG would be OK but I want to stay in a very nice place as I have driven a long way to get there.

OutdoorsRV owners rally.

The 2015 OutdoorsRV owners rally will be at Wallowa lake Oregon on July 31- Aug 2, . The place is filling up so don't wait. A great time to meet the ORV family. The rally is not far from the factory so you can see where and how they are built on the same trip. Really looking forward to it.

RE: 2015 Arctic Fox 25Y or 2015 Timber Ridge 240RKS?

If you are looking at the Arctic Fox in the Northwood line then look at the Wind River in the OutdoorsRV line. My 2014 250rdsw is a great floorplan. Both factories are about 5 miles from each other. There is a nice RV park close to the factories that Northwoods has their rally at and is close if you need warranty work done. I think it might be easier to get a good price on a Wind River over a Silver Fox.

RE: Breaking camp, when to retract slide?

Having a good solid routine of when to do what can keep you from a mistake that can cost $$$$. Where I work we have set procedures that catch mistakes before they happen and it has saved me many times.

RE: "Grand Design" brand of Travel Trailer?

I looked at their suite and they look nice. They claim they can be pulled with a 1/2 ton. The smaller TT is 36+ feet and 8,300+ pounds. Here we go with the claims. That statement would make me wonder about them. But, I guess you can.

RE: Lippert Frames

Look for a Northwood or Outdoors RV unit. They build their own frames, spec'd for each individual trailer. You'd be hard pressed to find any frame issues. The list of Mfg's that don't use Lippert but here are a great two.

RE: ADCO Trailer Cover

I have the exact same one. It will last for years, just don't damage it taking it on and off. The roof is watertight so look out for a lake if you have a roof rack on the TT. Don't let it buff the TT in the breeze.
