RE: Tow Opinion

I tow with a 2011 ram 1500 and am very close if not slightly over my max payload. I've done a lot of research. One of the reasons for the low payload on the ram 1500 is due to the factory p rated tires. The rear axle is made by AAM and is rated quite a bit higher by AAM then ram. I've also heard that the ford payload package is simply different tires... Another reason for lower payload is the rear coil overs. I have replaced the factory springs with super springs. While neither of these improvements technically raise your payload rating, they can't hurt. Of course a bigger truck is a better solution, but my Ram has been fine with 1500lbs of payload for the last two years. No mechanical issues and no towing issues. It actually tows better with more in the bed.

RE: Diesel to Gas? Yes/No???

If you're not finding a price difference in your particular area, then either the gassers in your area are extremely overpriced . . . or, you've got some awesome deals on diesels in your area. One or the other. Haven't done a nationwide analysis but I keep hearing people say how much more diesels cost on the used market but when I look, I just don't see it in the asking prices. Maybe it's with the 2-3yr old trucks there's a big difference and I'm looking in the 7-10yr old range. That's because the 2008 EPA era of diesels are time bombs and thus valued accordingly.

Its going to take away tounge weight and add to the overall length. This could cause say concerns. I'm sure you could have something fab'd, but I don't think you would be happy with how it tows.

RE: FIRE FIRE, how many would let BURN?

By the time you get everyone out and move your truck, it'll be too late to save.

RE: 1994 Cobra Sunrise

If its a seasonal campsite- I'd try to bury one of those 500g tanks or just use portables. Why attach them to the camper, if you don't plan on moving the camper to empty it?

RE: Looking at used travel trailer.

Is that a Zeppelin I or II? The Zeppelin I required a modification for the floor support.

RE: Where to purchase graphics. Keystone Bullet

There is a website that specializes in them. I can't remember the address though.

RE: Do you take a boat with you?

Nope. The boat stays tied to the pier at home.

RE: Power Tongue Jack - Barker or Bulldog?

No issues with the barker VIP 3500. Works great.

RE: Buying a Used Travel Trailer

I got a great deal on a used trailer... and it was only used for a few trips and basically still new. Absolutely make sure there are no leaks or soft spots. Everything else (even the expensive fridge) can be easily fixed... a rotten floor, not so much.

RE: Tow Truck discussion

In Wisconsin, trucks rust out faster then I put on 200k miles. I'd go for the newest year you can. Plus HP/Torque wise the modern gas engines are not far behind what the old diesels did. IDK about buying a 15+ year old truck. The body and interiors don't hold up much longer then that for me.

RE: Question on Towing and Weight Distribution for a Newbie

Way too much trailer for that truck.

RE: The part I like the least.

Long lines at the dump station on Sunday at noon. I just want to get home and unpack.

RE: Funky driveway = towing concern. Looking for some advice.

As a last resort- you could drive on wooden 2x6" ramps, if its really close.

RE: First Travel Trailer - 2001 Four Winds 27'

Congrats. Keep in mind it is 16 years old. A faulty appliance replacement could be a large percent of the purchase price, so really make sure everything works. And it sounds like you are already aware- but water leaks are super bad and I would walk away if you find any.
