RE: Pop-Up Truck Camper

If you like to camp,a pop up is a step up from a tent or in my case a pop up trailer.I have a Palomino 800 on a half ton F150 and it suits me fine. the reasons I have it are 1 my wife no longer camps 2 I wanted something that would fit on a F150 3. I wanted something that I could store in my garage 4 I still wanted to be able to do lite 4 wheeling, I have been all over Death Valley,the mojove road,the Bradshaw trail and the Anza Borrego area. 5 the stove,heater and refridge are as good as the larger trailers I have a porto potty The down side is you have to like primitive type camping,to keep the weight down http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/camping/86E15424-3D21-4EE3-87AB-B3FAFAB4793D-1563-00000696AC7BC9D0.jpg height=600 width=480 http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-05/DE890F4C-6742-4905-94E7-1C79EE95D207_zpskw49elmb.jpg height=600 width=480

RE: Camper package

I have also looked for the camper package Finding a LX or LXT camper package with gas is like trying to find a F150 HD I would buy the F150 if it came in the scab shortbed The F250 camper pac includes heavier springs,overload spring,worlds whimpiest sway bar and a certificate. does not include HD alt and has the same GVW as stock plain GVW For the first time in 15 years actually looked at a Ram Couldn't find one that had 6.4 or air suspension or one that wasn't made in Mexico

RE: Bent's Fort and Royal Gorge RR

I was hopeing you would respond We return to Ariz via I25 and I have never seen anything near the Glorieta pass that talks about the Battle. I am a history buff and have been to the Picacho site in Ariz.Do you have any idea where the site is? RW, I've not been to it. But here's what I found: http://www.civilwar.org/battlefields/glorieta-pass.html?tab=visit http://www.nps.gov/peco/historyculture/copy-of-battleofglorietta.htm http://www.civilwaralbum.com/misc/glorieta1.htm Summer ScheduleMemorial Day to Labor Day: Saturdays and Mondays-1:30 p.m. Civil War in the West-Join a ranger or volunteer for a two-hour van tour of Battle of Glorieta Pass sites, including Camp Lewis, Apache Canyon, Canoncito, and Pigeon's Ranch; hear about the characters and events that defined this often overlooked battle. Winter Schedule Labor Day through Memorial Day: Saturdays-1:30 p.m. Civil War in the West-This 90-minute van tour begins at Kozlowski's Santa Fe Trail stage stop. Next you'll be driven to see the bluff overlooking the confluence of the Glorieta Creek and Pecos River where Tex Austin, "Daddy of the Rodeo," hired architect John Gaw Meem to build a house. Completed in 1926, this structure later became the summer home of Pecos National Historical Park benefactors E.E.

RE: Bent's Fort and Royal Gorge RR

We went to Bent's Fort many years ago, when our grow kids who now have kids were kids. We were staying around Raton at Sugarite State Park & woke up to snow on the ground (yep, it was in June, I believe). We decided to drive down in elevation to warm up. We all enjoyed it. A neat place. Lot of history & I learned things I'd not known. Very rewarding. We did the Royal Gorge RR train trip with our daughter, her hubby & their 3 yr old son in 2012. We really enjoyed it, more than I thought I would. Earlier, We'd ridden one of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, coal fired, narrow gaged Steam Trains from the 1880s or so. The Royal Gorge RR train (I believe it's a 1950s diesel) was such an easy riding & comfortable trip. A world of difference than the Cumbres & Toltec RR. Enjoyed them both! I was hopeing you would respond We return to Ariz via I25 and I have never seen anything near the Glorieta pass that talks about the Battle. I am a history buff and have been to the Picacho site in Ariz.Do you have any idea where the site is?

RE: My 1st truck camper, well my 1st camper to be honest

Welcome to the forum If you could,would you post a pic of the door sticker in your F250 that gives the payload and front and rear axle ratings with the snowplow package, and what your honest mpg ratings at 65.Thanks. I am looking for a gas 2014 with camper pac. they seem to be rare in LX or LXT. I can get a smoking deal on a work truck that has the snow plow pac Not sure the MPG, the truck varies greatly depending on what brand fuel I buy. I don't drive 65, it's either in town driving or 80 on the interstate. The lie-o-meter says 12.5-13 empty, I hand calculated 15 before truck had 5k on it, it just now has 10k. I know that with the tail gate off it gets much better fuel footage. I have no driven it far with the camper on so I can not tell you the fuel drinking it does loaded, I do know that pulling a trailer with a car on it, it gets the same as empty. http://i1368.photobucket.com/albums/ag194/Scott_Ford/DSCF99601_zpsb789c13d.jpg Thanx I can live with the ratings

RE: You can order a 2015 F150, but you can't order a 2015 F150

Have you tried the the Ford website. You can build your own on-line. Your dealer is lying just to blow you off. He wants you to buy one off the lot. Nope.You can build and buy 2015 Super Duty According to what little the dealers know,if you want a F150 HD or the 2.7HD,they willnot be built until the late run,after Jan 1st

RE: Do any TC dealers have scales?

My little pop up was within 50 lbs,when I took it to the truck stop the first time.We all underestimate how much stuff we carry around in the campers. The more options we get,the bigger the discrepancy.I got the bare bones model,only hade refridge.heater and fantastic fan as options.

RE: Ram Eco-Diesel vs F150 2.7 TT - Davis Dam

I see this has become Ford vs Dodge and gas vs diesel. I was impressed that a 2.7 Ford,170 cubes for us old guys,beat a 5.3 Chevy.323 cubes.
