RE: Fifth wheel backing

Over the years I have watched my husband back nearly everything perfectly... then we got a 5th wheel. Yikes! I have no idea but it seems like when he uses his mirrors he puts it right in. When he turns and looks another way, well neighbors get out their lawn chairs to watch the show. My job is only to make sure he is not going to hit anything and watch for children. Otherwise I keep my mouth shut until he asks if it is OK. Then I tell him (GOAL) - get out and look... but I always say it nicely, well not always nicely. Once in a while while watching him I will say, "What are you doing?". That is not a good idea.

RE: Comparing Quality from a Manufacturer?

Lots of good advice here. Know what your price range is as you begin your search. Do the research listed here so when you begin your search at dealerships you can avoid the bling and dealer pressure. One area I never thought about is how important learning what the axle rating is. There are some that have axle ratings very close to the weight of an empty camper and that can and has created serious issues. Happy shopping!

RE: Best hitch

Thanks for all answers. There are no sway problems but they were wondering about changes in hitches. We talked to the factory rep and know the weight on the camper is accurate. This unit has an aluminum frame. I will pass on the information. Thanks for all your help. This is not their first travel trailer. For the past 4 years they have traveled across the country pulling a Zinger. Unfortunately the end of October they were involved in a rollover accident after hitting a deer which totaled their truck and camper.

RE: Best hitch

Sorry I did not give enough information. They have a 2017 F150 EcoBoost and their travel trailer is 32 ft. Length 5500 lb. Crossroads Sunset. Thanks for the info already. I appreciate it.

Best hitch

First, I am sorry if this has been asked a lot before but I would like up to date information. My daughter and son-in-law just purchased a new travel trailer. Is there a hitch that controls sway on bridges and when semi's go by better than other hitches?

RE: Things to see on the way to Yellowstone

My daughter and her family are on their way home from an amazing trip to Yellowstone and out to the Oregon coast. She sent great pictures from Voyagers Nat'l Park, Fort Abercrombie, N.D., Custer State Park, Wind Cave, Mt. Rushmore, and Wind Cave before getting to Yellowstone. Enjoy your trip! You are creating amazing memories for you and your family.

RE: Welding Precautions

I don't know ANYTHING about the area you are welding but a couple years ago DH had to weld the bumper on the 5th wheel. He put a sheet of metal (I think) against the camper, and I hosed the camper while he welded. I told him not to set himself on fire because I did not want to make the decision whether to protect the camper of him... joking.

Sorry your weekend was ruined. When we read your accounting we cannot tell what his demeanor was, whether you felt threatened by him, or if you thought your family would not be safe in that situation. If you did not have cell coverage I am certain that weighed into your decision. You made a choice that you thought was best for you and your family based on the information you had that we do not. You might consider calling and expressing your concerns about the host not being there or concerns about no way to contact law enforcement should you need it. We always camp during holidays at state parks in Ohio and have never had a problem.

I80 from NE Ohio through Chicago to Mt. Rushmore

Has anyone taken this route? If so what has your experience been going through the Chicago area? Also are there interesting stops along the route that we should stop and see? Thanks in advance for your help.
