RE: Tin Pusher's Update - (LOL, Like You Care)

Very nice roof job. Glad you got a couple of trips in anyway.

RE: total newb looking for advice

You need to look at the pin weight loaded of any fiver you are interested in to make sure it does not overload your truck. Hire a certified RV tech to inspect a used RV before you buy. It is worth every penny of the cost.

RE: Buying local vs the national dealers

I bought from a dealer about 80 miles from home. I am satisfied with their service and 80 miles is not far.

RE: Hehr window alternatives

Frameless windows look really good. But they are more expensive initially and more expensive to repair/replace.

RE: Your Rig

Nice rig and the nicest part is that it is paid for! :)

RE: half ton towable 5th wheel toy hauler

Now my travel distances would be under 700 miles round trip. Camper would be at a campground 85% of the time. You have received a lot of posts to your question. 100% of those posts are telling you that you should not attempt to tow an FW toyhauler with a 1/2 ton truck. Could you do it? Probably, for a while before something breaks. Tires, axles, brakes, and suspension would be overloaded not to mention the stress on the drive train. There are also potential legal ramifications should you have an accident. Whether or not the accident was your fault, an attorney would jump all over your liability caused by towing overloaded. In short, I would never attempt it; it is not worth the risk. Buy a truck compatible with the toyhauler you want or buy an enclosed cargo trailer that you can tow with your 1500 until you can get the truck you need.

RE: Tri-axle tire drag photos

I just don't worry about it. I make the turns I need to and accept the additional tire wear. I have yet to wear out a trailer tire.I've worn out lots of trailer tires but as you can see, mine are now truck tires so I'm not worried about it anymore. Age gets to my trailer tires before the tread wear does.

RE: half ton towable 5th wheel toy hauler

Right now an 11 GMC SIERRA dont want to upgrade til 17 models come out I strongly urge you to upgrade to a 3500/350 for the toyhauler you want. A 1500 will not work and a 2500/250 will be marginal. It is far better to have too much truck than to be right at or over the limits. Right now you should be able to get a deal on a 2015 model.

RE: Tri-axle tire drag photos

I run good tires so not worried about them, they will age out before I wear um out. It's the running gear and frame I try to take it easy on. Spot on.

RE: half ton towable 5th wheel toy hauler

I agree with Don. You can get an enclosed trailer that you can tow with a 150/1500.

RE: Hehr window alternatives

They are definitely pricey!

I look forward to that.

+2. I agree.

RE: Garage screen doors

Thanks, Rodney; I understand. I deliberately did not choose the three season patio doors option. Thus I don't have experience with them. I do use my garage screen when the weather permits.

RE: Garage screen doors

The screen in my Impact rolls up like an old fashioned window shade.

RE: Safe or scary to roll a big bike up and down an 7' TH ramp?

Bill, could you post those pics?

RE: Toy hauler choices. Opinions needed.

Congratulations on your new toyhauler. Enjoy.

RE: extending slides when the unit is not level front to rear

My manual says the trailer should be level before the slides are extended or retracted. However, I make sure mine is reasonable level. I use the landing gear while I remain hooked up for overnight parking.
