RE: B&W Customer Service

I bought a B&W Companion hitch on Craigslist had it two years when the draw down bolt striped called them to buy new one them sent it to me free of charge. Reese did that for me with Dual Cam sway control. I picked up a set of used Gen 1 dual cam arms and they came with the U bolts for a 4 inch frame and I needed 6 inch...called Reese and they sent me the 6 inch U-Bolts for free. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Advice on Ford F150 Ecoboost

I'm sorry, I have a hard time believing that the new F150's are not stable. Sounds more like a bad trailer design or a badly set up truck. My OLD 1997 F150 SuperCab handled my 31.5 ft 7,700 GVWR TT perfectly. No sway, no stability issues whatsoever. No airbags, no LT tires...just a good handling rig. Maybe you all had other factors like off road tires etc that can cause bad handling in any rig or just a bad trailer design? Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Hitch Upgrade

I think you may want to figure out what's causing the sway before you go throwing cash at a new hitch. May want to consider that the hitch is not set up properly or you have undersized spring bars, or even the truck and trailer are mis-matched. I have a similar Pro Series WD hitch and have absolutely no sway with or without the sway bar. Again, I recommend reviewing your hitches set up. Also, please provide more details such as the the Weights you are running (hitch, trailer weight, Truck weight). One thing that pops into my mind is that the Titan Receiver is rated for around 900-950 lbs and if you are over that you may be getting some receiver flex that is contributing to the sway. So please, some more details please. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Opinions: FW to gooseneck adapters?

Look into an Andersen ultimate hitch. It gives you the advantages of a gooseneck with none of the drawbacks that go along with the adapters. My rail mount version blows away any traditional fiver hitch I've ever used when it comes to ease of installation, use and smoothness going down the road. It works really well in rough terrain, too. X2... I would look into this Andersen Ultimate Hitch. It's the way to go... IMHO.. Especially over a gooseneck adaptor. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Toyota tumdra owners

RE: 1/2 ton SUV. What's diff in 4000 vs 6000 lb trailer? 1st TT

5,000 lbs will be 6,500 lbs loaded up...I would not be as concerned with the overall length. I mean, it's a concern for sure but keep it around 30ft and you should be good to go. The front profile of the trailer is something I concern myself with. A slightly heavier, low CG TT at about 9.5-10.5 ft tall with an aerodynamic front profile will pull easier than a 11.5-12.5 ft TT with a nearly flat front profile...the reason is aerodynamics. A shorter profile with a more aerodynamic front end takes less effort to pull through the air. Just something else to think about. Either of those trailers are well in a well equipped (tow package) Half Ton SUV's capability. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Reese hitch creaks

Yea, probably just some lubrication needed...but... I would inspect everything and make sure it's right. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: an interesting tow vehicle for a fiver.

There is a similar set up here in my town...except it's a V10 Motorhome chassis. There was a fire in the back bedroom. A mom and pop auto repair shop bought it...removed about 1/4 or 1/3 of the walls and roof..added a new back wall and mounted a fiver hitch on the frame rails where the bedroom use to be. They haul fivers to and from the local campgrounds for a fee. Pretty interesting rig to see all loaded up pulling a monster fiver. But it keeps folks from having to buy a pick up truck. Lol Thanks!

RE: 16 foot vs 18 foot fifth wheel trailer?

Yea, the campground overall length is for the trailer not the entire rig. If you want to go small then go small! But don't do it just to stay under 40 ft overall length. Buy the biggest trailer you can afford (or build)... Depending on your health issues you may want to look at a travel trailer style with a flat floor and no stairs. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: New hitch head or... Questions

The dealer is correct. The picture you have shown gives the hitch head rating...not the base. A square tube Reese slider base is compatable with a 20k hitch head. In other words...unbolt the old 15k...bolt in the new 20k and you are good to go. Just verify your part numbers with Reese and make sure that your base is what I am thinking of. Here are some links for you 15k hitch head Here is the slider base that shows its compatable with the 20k hitch head. Square Tube Slider base Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Needing to transport golf cart

It can also depend on what kind of trailer you get. The swivel wheel comes in single wheel or dual wheel...the dual wheel looks like it's a much more solid rig and the wheels carry most of the weight. Just have a proper hitch installed on the back of the rig. Don't just use the trailers bumper...that will result in a major failure. Seen it happen...with a swivel wheel...no fun at all. Nearly caused an accident. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2017 F-450 Super Ike Gaunlet

F450 has 10 lug nuts per wheel.... That means it's a real truck... Isn't that how trucks are judged on this forum? Count the lug nuts...

RE: Needing to transport golf cart

Check out the Crickett! Crickett SX-3 This should be pretty easy to transport with some mods to your current rig. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: OT: My Other Hobby Is.........

Beautiful car! When I lived in Germany as a kid my parents had a pair of w123 Mercedes gas cars. I loved them. No air, Manual Transmissions... but fine fine cars. I have wanted one of those classic Mercedes my entire adult life. May be time to really start looking into it. Thanks for sharing! Jeremiah

RE: Can we talk need for a golf cart?

I always thought it was a leveling kit up front and then with the least little load the truck squats. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Need a truck

The Ram 6.4 is a fine truck. Please get the 4:10 gears...I'm not sure that you will find a crew cab capable of pulling your trailer, newer than 2010, for around 20k. At least one that isn't worn out. You may need to up your budget. Diesel vs gas is a personal decision. I prefer gas trucks...I can afford a used diesel...I just don't want one...not enough pros on my ledger... Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Chuck-box and outdoor kitchen ideas

I don't have any pics of my set up, but I use a commercially available Colemen Delux High Stand. It has proven to be a highly useful, how did I ever do without it, type peice of equipment. We had a power outage not long ago and we needed to cook dinner. Out came the stand and the propane stove and we cooked dinner. It was fantastic as well. I do not have a lot of counter space and would like to make a box for the kitchen utensils and that sort of thing... Right now we just use the old Rubbermaid and its not well suited for this purpose. Thanks for the share and the idea! Jeremiah
