RE: can my chevy express g1500 pull my camper ?

Double check your hitch ratings. I would ensure you have 3.73 rear axle gear ratio. Also make sure you are not overloading your interior of the van. The scaled weight of the rig (van and trailer) is what's important. The Express had the 5.7 350 ci V8. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Out of the mouths of babes

Ya'll are bringing back some memories of my Grandfather. While he was not a camper he was an outdoorsman. He had a huge back yard and he had lots of interesting stuff that kept us grandkids interested and our of trouble. He set up an old cabin cruiser in the back yard... pulled all of the motor and fuel system out of it and set it on a permanent base and we sailed the ocean blue for years in that back yard. He did tons of stuff to keep us outside when we were at his house. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Towing the cmper with E350?

My wife and I went out to check a 2009 E350. We liked everything about it except that it has no curtain air bags If you aren't apposed to an Express or Savana, side curtain air bags were standard on their vans since at least 2010. The 6.0L and 6 speed combination is a very competent powertrain. The standard safety features (Air bags, traction/stability control, Onstar) were one of the main reason we went with an Express nearly four years ago. No, I am not opposed to Chevy. The last time I checked, it did not have good towing capacity. I will double check now. Properly equipped the 6.0 Express/Savanna can tow up to 10,000 lbs...they are very competent tow vehicles and IMHO they drive very very nice. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Pro Series hitches and there warranty :)

Cequent has always treated me right...I also have their Pro Series WD hitch and it is a fine piece of equipment... Especially at their price point. I'm glad they took care of you! Jeremiah

RE: Towing the cmper with E350?

Should be a great choice! IMHO...I would choose a 12 passenger version. The rear overhang is less and should be a bit more stable towing. I have a lot of experience with the newer E350 and the newer 5.4 is very stout compared to my old 5.4 in my 97 F150...should do very well with your camper. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Jerking Feeling when Towing

Heavier truck. Maybe...we need more information. OP...let's check some of the obvious things... Is the suspension in good shape on the fiver? And no, even if new..doesn't mean it's in good shape. Could be assembled incorrectly. Are the brakes actually working on the fiver? My dad had a brake issue (no brakes) and he described a similar situation..said he could feel the hitch taking a lot of weight. Turns out he had zero brakes. Are all the bolts on the pin box tight? Tires on the TV and Fiver aired up to the correct psi? Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2016 Nissan Titan XD Cummins Payload

We will just have to wait and see how the common man version of the Nissan XD plays out in its specs. What will the payload be on a XD with 2wd, cloth seats, basic comforts...kind of the tradesmen trim of the XD? I'm not sure that has been discussed as most of the trucks being delivered or tested now are top shelf models. I'm still in wait and see mode. Around here the Ram Ecodiesel is doing very well...which surprised me...there is a demand for Diesel powered trucks...how much? We will see...but it's there. As a side bar question...can these trucks have a reverse impact on the trailer markets? What I mean, is can these trucks coming to market cause manufacturers of trailers to build trailers that will match capability? Specifically, will we see a reduction in tongue/ pin weight in trailer design in order to align more with the capabilities of these half tons...i.e. A more European design in our trailers? And I'm not just talking about RV's Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2016 Nissan Titan XD Cummins Payload

Just make sure your under all your ratings when you cause an accident. Your good then...right... Of course not..if you cause a wreck...your negligent...overloaded or not. Common internet myth..."If your found overloaded when you cause a wreck you are going to get sued." As opposed to causing a wreck with in ratings...totally protects you from being sued. Thanks!

RE: Curt fifth Wheel Hitches

I personally would like to know what the grade of the 4 bolts are that hold the head to the base and the two bolts that hold the base together are if I owned one and towed heavy like I do. Our previous conversation about this led my research to find that these are grade 5 metric equivalents. Nearly PSI for PSI. I don't have the confidence to say they are grade 8 equivelant. Here is a chart that should help some. Chart Seems that the eyeball size of the bolts are around 16 mm... The proof load of a 16 mm 8.8 bolt is 600 MPa or 87,022.62 psi So it has more in common with a grade 5 bolt than a grade 8 it's a little stronger than a grade 5 at 85,000 psi but no where near a grade 8 bolt at 120,000 psi... But a grade 5 is more than strong enough for this application... Those four bolts combine for 348,088 psi strength just in the bolts. Thanks! Jeremish

RE: New to me F-150

Congrats on the truck! My 4.6 has nearly 172k miles on it an is going strong. I would not hesitate to own one in a F150. As to the axle ratio check the drivers door for the Axle code and report back to us. We can help ya find it. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2016 Nissan Titan XD Cummins Payload

Thanks for sharing the pics... I have a feeling that 1400 lbs in the bed will barely even be noticed... Think looks like it's built heavy. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Towing Problems-Disappointment with Duramax

What I saw in the video I would not consider toys. They are some sophisticated scale models of the real thing that are rather expensive but a lot of fun to drive with a remote control. Like I said, "TOYS". Expensive and very detailed, YES, but still toys. Kind of like the Big ones these scale models represent??? Big toys?

RE: Pondering about moving to a one-story home.

I will never own a home with a second or third floor. I despise stairs...despise them... Grew up in a home with four 20 step flights of stairs... Burned me on them. My moms feet are destroyed because she fell down stairs in middle age...more fuel for my hate. Don't care about the cost of a foundation for a single level home...if I build a 2500 sq ft home it will be single level. Folks should understand that...tons of people on here spend 8-10k more on a truck just to get a diesel....nothing wrong with it..it's just what you want and are comfortable with. I will spend more on foundations and roofs to get what I want...no stairs! No stairs for me...or postage size lots for the house to stand on...it's not nearly enough land if you don't need a tractor with a finishing deck to mow with :D Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Considering another Pop Up BUT

The cassette toilet was a breeze to operate...manually filling the flush tank was less than a five minute ordeal. Makes it nice that your potable water supply isn't diminished by the flush water. Clean up was much nicer too. That is the dump was much easier and cleaner. I didn't see what your plan was for the pizza after you figure out how to freeze it. Most if not all low wall pups are not equipped with a stove. We have sold the pup...it was not working for my family...first heavy thunderstorm and my wife was done. I do wish to caution you, really be sure you can make the pup work. CCC is a huge issue with these things, especially if you go for a wet bath, and a slide out. I've been considering a 26BH like yours after your positive reviews of it. I don't like slides and the 26bh seems to be the best no slide trailer out there right now. Thanks and good luck no matter what you decide. Thanks Jeremiah

RE: Dually as a daily driver

I had a gasser dually, CC LB as a matter of fact. The issues that a CC, LB Dually present are for the most part the same as a CC LB SRW. The width was never a real issue for me. The length was a problem in my works parking garage and in some precarious parking situations. Just have to do the dually shuffle some times if people park all close around you. (You can park in the back 40.. no guarantee you will be by yourself when you come back to your truck) As to why a Gasser Dually? I was pulling a travel trailer with a Golf Cart in the back and my family in the cab... I wanted stability and that's what I got. Plus I scored the F350 V10 CC Dually for $5,500.00 which I thought was a deal. Thanks! Jeremiah
