RE: Mercedes Developing a new Pickup Truck

It's ugly....BUT, seeing as how it's only a Mercedes, it'll really be affordable:R Everyone on the block will own one...Nah, it's just another grocery getter, truck wannabe....Guess it'll work towing the 5er pictured if no mountains to tow....mostly flat to hilly, I mean we have 1/2 ton pick-ups here that can pull the Space Shuttle:B No, they tow in the mountains of New Zealand, highest peak 12,000 ft. It is a mighty hilly place. This company sells Australian, US and British towables, notice the 30ft Ultima lightweight 5ver, 5th slideUltima 5ver in Mountainous New Zealand The MB Pickup will be a more carlike "I Tonne" Pickup, than the Ranger. I think it will slightly more luxurious than the Ranger/Amarok Sorry...not buying it....I'm talking about the little ugly Mercedes that is on your first post...Not believing it'll tow the 5er ALSO pictured up 12,000' peaks...not buying it.. ...and I was talking about the Mercedes you first posting about...nothing else...your post was about the "want to be a truck" Mercedes...I doubt very seriously it'll tow the 5er that was pictured up mountains at a safe speed, to 12,000'.....So we need to be talking about the same thing here...you're switching vehicles on me now... A 1 ton pick-up like the Ranger:E...don't even consider the Ford Ranger a 1/2 ton truck..Guess that's what we get being continents apart. I would like to think that a MERCEDES BENZ would be " a little more "luxurious than a Ranger....but again, maybe my perception of what you're calling a Ranger isn't what I know as a Ranger.... I think you are talking about something totally different. Global Ranger like the new Mercedes is a 1 Tonne Ute, 2,200lb min payload. BOF. slightly smaller than the F150 The Ranger has nothing to do with the small US Ranger, it was nowhere as big as a base F150 No, basically, I saw your first post of the little Mercedes, "want to be a truck"...THEN, I saw a picture of a 5er....I posted about THAT MERCEDES towing THAT 5er... I apologize...shouldn't have posted....Here in the United States, if I had the money to purchase a Mercedes like the one you first posted about....I might get it to put groceries in or potted plants at Lowes or Home Depot....I now have no clue what we're talking about. I know zip, nil, nada of "Global Ranger...I can't even concieve a "1 ton Ute" (SUV)...so, again, sorry for having hijacked your thread.....I originally posted to state the Mercedes was ugly and I really would have no need for it....

RE: Hello newbie here.

Mine is just a little over 7000 lbs unloaded, which was what I pulled home on Friday 100 mile one way and got 16.2 mpg 3.5 L Twin turbo ecoboost.55 - 60 mph I was surprised also. Got the 10 mpg when I was practice parking. You've got the perfect combo there if you're getting 16.2 mpg towing..That is awesome mpg.

RE: Favorite floorplans for FW

Trying to understand the fixation by so many that the RV has to be fully functional with slides in? We are occasional Wally campers & don't really recall seeing anyone overnighting with slides in. Using up a line of parking bays is using up a line of parking bays. During an in transit day stop for lunch getting to the fridge without extending slides is nice & having the toilet accessible with slides in is a necessity. But really & truly, how often do we want TV, the sofa, even a table when we are only stopped for a short time? Fixation???? Wow....That's the reason we're all different...You may not like something some like and some may not like what you like...human nature. You may not do some things the way's others do, but that doesn't make it wrong...In our case, being able to stop and get to the stove, refrigerator, go to the bathroom, take a nap is nice...Didn't know anything was wrong with that:h..Never stayed at a Wally World, never plan to either.... Not trying to argue the point...Opinions were asked and given...We have stayed over night at a stop between where we wanted to end up...basically, spending the night and leaving "at the crack of dawn"...camper can be left hooked up and we can go into the 5er and go anywhere we want, even watch TV and relax....Just another suggestion that may work for some. Necessity??? ....nor really.....nice to have? We thing so... Don't recollect anyone being "fixated" on the suggestion or even stating it was a "necessity", but, as you can see by all those that have recommended it on this thread and others, most like that capability of their 5er.

RE: Favorite floorplans for FW

As stated, it's really very nice, when all slides are in, that one can easily access the refrigerator, stove, watch Television in the living room, take a shower, use the bathroom or go to bed. Our's is a 4 slide and with all slides in, you can still access all the above..We had an island in a 5er before and loved it, BUT, with all slides in, it was hard to get to the fridge, couldn't get to living room, so next time we purchased a 5er we looked for one that, with all slides in, was still "user friendly":)

RE: 2015 RAm 3500 that is equipped with 6.7 Cummins diesel

As stated, you can get a 3500 SRW or 3500 DRW with the Cummins diesel engine, or with a gas engine....As also stated, go to a Ram dealership and look at the trucks, I would imagine that most of the 2500's and 3500's will have the diesel engine in them...The 3500 SRW truck will come with only one gearing with the Cummins, a 3.42...The 3500 Dually with the Cummins can be had with the 3.42, 3.73 or the 4.10... Just look at the window sticker...heck, look at the badging on the front fenders, they'll be a BIG C with Cummins written out on it...

RE: Turning 34' TT in Cludesac?

I have the 1 ton crew cab, long bed dually in my sig....I also tow a 5er that is 39' 6" long and live in a cul-de-sac....I have just enough room to make the circle and pull up far enough to straighten the combo up, then back my 5er up into my drive way...it'll "skew" the drivers side tires when making the U-turn, I can look in the mirror and see the "twist", but tires are aired to recommended psi and I've been doing this since 2007, so no issues...I just use my mirrors....You should be fine....

RE: Sailun S-637

I have run 17.5 H rated Sailun tires for a year now. No blowouts like I had with the GoodYear bombs that were previously on the trailer. Sailun is a much better tire than the Goodyear and at a third the price. What were the date codes of the GY tires? Were they "G" rated? If so why not go with "G" Sailun's? Good question, good point...Were you running GY G614's ?? If so, what was the date code and why didn't you just go to a G rated Sailun instead of going to a 17.5" Sailun? Inquiring minds want to know! I think you just need to get over the fact that someone could possibly want something different then you, or quite possibly a better product then yours.You come across its my way or the highway. give it a rest. Sorry that Sailun is becoming a popular tire with actual better reviews then GY has ever had. Don't believe anyone google GY ,and read the failures, and not just from the years you seem to be stuck on. Hey, up2nogood, were you talking to me or Ron? I like and have GYG614's, BUT, I've also been a pretty strong promoter for the Sailun tire and have stated numerous times that I will be looking at them when it comes time to replace my GY's...So again, was just curious:h

RE: THE LONG AWAITED TRUCK IS FINALLY HERE!!!!!

Nice setup! Thanks! The wife even drives it. Seems like I keep finding new things about it. I can set the lady in the box to yell at me when I get a set amount over the speed limit. It's easy to speed in the new truck. Another nice feature is easy exit when shutting off the truck the seat slides back for ease of exiting and entering. Yeah, you can set that from 1 mile over the speed limit up to 10 over....I turned it off, got tired of the nagging:)...I never did care for the easy exit...I disabled mine....The wife really likes driving the dually....she get's a lot of looks when a little 5' 2" lady is driving that big ole truck....

RE: How much $$$ would you ask

I got $200 for my 4 used 16" China bombs last summer on CL. Goodyear G614's aren't 16" China bombs...made in Kansas. As stated the GY G614's are good tires and fairly expensive, but with 15,000 miles on them...sorta makes them not quite as desirable, would also depend on the kind of wheels also, Aluminum?, Steel? I'd agree with other poster about maybe $500 or so for wheels and tires...worse case, put them on sell for what you'd like to get and work from there...nothing ventured, nothing gained.

RE: Friends from the "OOP'S" thread.

Been pretty nice around here...low's have been in upper 40's to low 50's..highs in upper 50's to low 70's, (depending on the day)...It's partly cloudy right now and temp is 57...supposed to have a little cool down Friday/Saturday (upper 20's:E, to high in upper 40's)...so I guess spring is getting pushed around some by the end of winter....We have trees budding, elms, poplars, Bradford's, Forsythia's and on....guess we'll see what happens. hope all are well and having a great day.

RE: New Ram 3500

You can probably get a picture frame adapter for your current hitch or possibly new legs to fit the pucks. Much less expensive than a new hitch. Yeah I know of someone trying to sell theirs, maybe he'll PM you since selling isn't allowed on this forum. Shipping must be expensive though, it must weigh the going freight weight of over 75 pounds. Congrats on the new truck. It will be the longest 6 weeks of your life. Like Christmas when you were 8 or so. Just hope it does not take as long as mine! 12.5 weeks. But hey mine is special. That's why it took so long. I keep telling my self that instead of thinking about it possibly being damaged pulled aside then fixed! Hey Ron, if it took 12.5 weeks to get your's because it's special, what's that make mine??:)...Ordered Dec 5th, 2012...received May 9th, 2013 :B yeah, Rick, the picture frame adapter weighs 75#, but quite a few hitches fit on it...My Reese 20K Signature worked with it....
