RE: 1/2 ton trucks?

So whats the point in 1/2 ton trucks? They can't haul much, are they the grocery getters of the truck world? I know you feel the Toy Haulers have beat you up, that's not the point. You keep wanting to haul more trailer then you probably should. Many, many owners have done what you're looking at doing, and a few months or year later they are forced into upgrading their truck. Some probably did it by choice, others did it because they were oversold on the trailer they bought. There are plenty of trailers within your limits, but there are very few Toy Haulers that are going meet your needs and limitations. If you will consider changing your requirements and go with a shorter toy hauler you can probably find one that stays within your weights. Remember its also the overall length. You can ignore everyone on the forum, that's your choice. You asked for feedback, you've been given it. Now it's your call.

RE: What to look for in a used Desert Fox

Soft wet wood is a problem. Hard to say out extensive it is. Generally DF haulers are a good trailer, but sounds like some have had issues. Can you get under the trailer to see what is wet? Personally, unless it was an amazing deal I'd keep looking. Water damages can cost a lot to repair. Since the factory is in Oregon you might give them a call to talk about it too.

RE: Advice ?

Ok so now you take your max weight and start the math. They ususlly account for a 150# driver, then you need to subtract other weights in the truck such as passengers. That weight for the trailer you looked at is estimated shipping weight, you need the actual weight. Once you add batteries, LP, supplies, camping gear and toys you'll be right up, if not over your max weight. For a short trailer that's one thing, but with a long tail heavy toy hauler that's complete other story. nayther brings up a great issue, finding a good drop hitch and equalizer hitch. That will work with your lifted truck. I don't know if Hensely makes drops that big, but that's the type of hitch you're going to want/need. Do what you wish, but my gut tells me that you'll be buying a bigger truck sooner then you think.

RE: Fuzion Black End-Cap

OK, I see it coming.....the fix will be buffing out the oxidation. Yep all they need to do is get you past the warranty period and it's no longer an issue... for them. ;)

RE: Advice ?

I'd first like to start off with an apology to anyone I've annoyed by asking so many questions so fast. I don't think anyone is annoyed by the frequency of your questions, but several of us, including myself, have posted replies and suggested you do some homework. That being you need to open up your owners manual and find out the limits for your truck. I've never seen you reply with those (if you have my apologies), so the rest of the comments are just based on thoughts and ideas. You need to know what you can and can not tow, based on the manufacturer weight ratings. Once you know that, then and only then can you take into account for your lift and tires as they will reduce what you can tow most likely. Please, for your sake, look at those numbers. Post them, then we can give you advice based on the weights. Honestly, I think anything over 30' long is going to be a bad towing experience with your truck, but that's just from personal experience towing at 29'4" trailer with my previous Avalanche.

RE: Where are all the 19.5 inch tires?

I just installed 6 new Hankook AH11 tires on our Winnie/F53, had my choice of those or they could have installed Michelin or Goodyear tires as well. Dealer had no issue getting any of them inside of a couple of days.

RE: Water pressure/flow?

Before you do anything, take the cap and strainer off and see if it's plugged. That can cause a lot of issues and often campground water isn't a clean as you'd like to think.

RE: Trim/weatherstrip

It's probably there to keep the water from seeping behind the diamond plate and rotting the backing and the screws. Replace it and run a bead of caulk in the seem as well.

RE: Work & Play Strength

Honestly, I just don't think attaching it to an RV is a good idea. Those tents have a lot of tension in them. If you did run into bad weather you've got to get it down, fast. I think freestanding just a safer way to go IMHO.

RE: Windows falling out of Fuzion 404

How in the world do they justify it not being a warranty item? That is totally insane. I'll say good luck, sounds like you're going to need it. :(

RE: On demand water heater

Ok lets start with what toy hauler you have. Is this happening using the water pump or while connected with a hose? The pumps that many RVs come with are cheap cheap cheap. Upgrading to a quality one will get you a better, smoother flow. You may have stuff plugging up your line. Take the shower head off and see how the flow is, try banging the shower head (thread side down) on the counter to see what comes out. May need to clean the faucets too. Again, the valve that controls the hot/cold water maybe cheap, broken or something else. If this is brand new I'd call the dealer and get it in and let them deal with it. It may need replacing.

RE: Dune Sport Toy Hauler

Sorry you ran into problems. This is the downside of having it delivered, basically once it leaves the dealer/factory you own it. Is the warranty taking care of the non-water damaged items?

RE: Fuzion Black End-Cap

OK, now for the stupid question, , , , what is 303?? Not a stupid question at all. 303 is a Protectant, similar to ArmorAll yet totally different as it doesn't cause long term problems like AA would, and it's pretty well respected. They claim it to be like sunscreen for your rig. Check it out. They make several products the one most refer to is the 303® Aerospace Protectant. 303 Products

RE: Recommended RV Class A Insurance Company

Been with Blue Sky Insurance for about 4 years now. Been very happy with their service and their rates. MH got damaged and they took care of me and worked to get the money from the other guy. Agent communicated with me often and kept me in the loop. Unlike Progressive I've never seen my rates jacked up for no reason.

RE: pismo beach sand with wd bars and airbags. few questions.

1) Yes you need the bars even with the bags. Your hitch probably states that as well, certain weight up to # without WD and above that you need WD. Deflate the air bags unhooked, use a measuring tape to measure the top of front bumper and rear bumper to ground. Now hook up, use WD bars and measure again, adjust air bags so you're level and should be the same measurments as without the trailer or equal for front/rear bumper.

RE: Hitch weight ?

Toy Haulers always have a very high hitch weight. While many standard travel trailers & 5th wheels say 10-15% a toy hauler can easily be 15-20+%. There is some (small) amount of counterbalance when you load things behind the wheels, but on a triple axle that will be limited. Key is to make sure your truck can handle it and that your hitch can handle it. Numbers are often wrong so you're only real way to know is to have it weighed.

RE: Keystone recall

Any Keystone dealer should be able to do the recall work, check with Keystone to see about the closest dealer, save your drive.

RE: Weekend Warrior woes

I'd be inclined to spend a few bucks for a banner, park the trailer with said banner near the entrance (on public roads) and let the buying public know that they knowingly sold you a defective RV and the GM doesn't even have the courtesy to talk with you... Just a thought.

RE: Toy Hauler / Tow vehicle help picking out

Buy a used Diesel pusher, you can tow the boat and then buy a trailer for the toys. That's just another thought.
