RE: Which company(s) still build quality TT?

Quality and TT don't belong in the same sentence.

RE: Gm 5.3 vs 6.2

See the truck & TT in my signature. TT weighs about 6K lbs in camping form. Truck tows it just fine w/o any issues. I'm sure the 6.2 would tow even better. but the difference in cost to get it required a pkg option that equalled about $10k more. It just wasn't & still isn't worth it to me. For that price difference I would have gone for a 3/4 ton with the 6.0L gas motor, but still happy with my decision tho.

RE: Outside shower privacy

RE: Where to store the hitch & accessories?

I keep the bars in the pass thru & when parked at home, I keep the head on a 1/2" thk wooden board inside the TT on the floor. The board keeps the head from leaving any impression on the linoleum floor, especially in hot weather.

RE: towing capacity

The 3.21 rear end is going to be a hinderance. With that gear I seriously doubt it has a tow pkg which means no extra cooling for the transmission or anything else. Based on this I don't think your truck has what takes to tow a camper of that weight. I had a Hemi Ram with the 3.92 rear end and my current truck has similar power but with 3.42 rear end and definitely notice the difference. I wouldn't even consider towing with a 3.21 gear and my camper is only about 6k lbs.

RE: I pad on Dash

How much of your window will be blocked by putting an ipad on your dash. Unless it's a motorhome with a windshield the size of Utah!

RE: Speed is not your friend

I tow at 75mph here in AZ on the freeway. I am alot more rock solid than alot of other folks around me. I think I've heard this excuse for speeding before: "I know what I'm doing, not like the other guys on the road". X2

RE: Max speed towing.

My tires are rated for 65mph, so I'm happy at 60. In a 4 hr drive, that's only 20 additional minutes drive time. BIG DEAL.

RE: Hit a tree in the rv park

No traveling companion to help guide you back? My wife always guides me so I don't hit trees, tables, posts or back off a cliff.

RE: time for new shoes...

The truck in my signature just got new shoes a few months ago. Cooper Discoverer AT3, same size as yours. My TT weighs 5500 - 6000 lbs depending on the trip. I replaced with original size (P265/65x18). The Coopers have a higher weight rating than the Michelins do. 2604 vs 2469 lbs.

RE: Dog DNA Testing

From Ancestory.com? Just found out my German Shepard isn't german after all but instead an Irish Setter. Had to trade in his Lederhosen for an Irish Kilt!

RE: Awning strap replacement

One person on each arm to open or close it w/o a strap. Any camping supply/RV dealer will probably have replacements.

RE: Earthquake. When does the motorhome rock?

If it's a rockin, don't come a knockin! Sorry, I just couldn't resist! It was too obvious.

RE: So knowing I need tires

The only benefit to bias ply is the cording is not steel so when it comes apart it does not beat on the RV as bad. 1700? is that a 205-14? I would probably go 215-14 for the 1870 rating. Exactly what I did. Went from 205-14 to 215-14 for that very reason.

RE: slow down, or speed up

Tap the camper brake controller or speed up a bit but only momentarily.
