RE: Rest Areas Closing in Many States

I guess for those w/o an RV, you just pull off the side of the road & take a piss next to your vehicle.

RE: Heart broken!

The underside of these things don't take kindly to road salt. Most are just painted carbon steel though a few have aluminum frames.

RE: Camping with the Sound Police

When camping on a holiday weekend, around us if you don't get your Memorial Day weekend reservations by the first of the year at state parks, you end up without electricity. When there is nothing between you and a camper even 50 yards away a generator is still loud. We had a guy there with all his toys, TT, boat, 4 wheeler and a running 14 hr per day generator. Only time it stopped was for refueling it. Not cold enough for AC or hot enough for the furnace. Why don't these people have some type of enclosure around it to direct the sound upwards other than they could give a rats a$$ that that constant noise bothers others. Yes Hondas are quieter but they don't sound like birds and wind rustling through the trees ie....nature sounds. Not everyone has the luxury of camping during the week when campgrounds are mostly empty and in the NE there are no boondocking locations.

RE: Building my own RV

Good luck with your rebuild! Looks like a great project. Best seat in the house! http://i.imgur.com/78bxleol.jpg Just put a four foot tall cardboard box around it with the bottom and top flaps folded in. Your neighbors will never know what's going on! "Hello Joe, nice day isn't it?" "Oh, nothing much. Just sittin' here." :):) That's what I love. Room with a view!

RE: Towing speed?

NY & PA have a maximum towing speed of 55 mph. Few will actually do that speed, but that is what it is. I'm usually at 60.

RE: Cordless drill for scissor jacks

I use an 18 volt DeWalt. Came with 2 batteries. Works great.

RE: Duramax

Completely agree....except for the towing at 75mph part. X2

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

If anyone just looks at me taking a shower, that will cure them from looking again. 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!
