RE: What would you buy...

DRV Fullhouse, or make a huge down payment on a New Horizon MotoMover. But I wouldn't pull either to the desert or too far off road... They are HEAVY at 24k+ You will need a class 4+ truck for those.

RE: MORryde

$1800 was just for the lift, not for the whole assembly.

RE: We've been living on the wrong side of the tracks

But the sign doesn't say per axle, per tire, single vehicle etc. Drv is nice, and we have considered their FullHouse for our next rolling home. It's either that or build a custom unit.

RE: Comfort ride Hitch

Trailer Saver is another option. I believe the BD-3 is the right model. Comfort Ride is designed by the same gy as the original Trailersaver before Hensley bought them. Dave moved on and started the Comfort Ride. Either hitch is worth the price.

RE: Can CCC be increased by making alterations to a Cameo 5er?

Carriage made their frames in house. They have a 2x6 box frame stacked- 12' tall. The limiting factor is the 7k axles. Upgrade the axles and tires to 8k and your fine. Our Carrilite is the same, heavy as hell with little-carrying capacity. We upgraded axles and tires and have had zero issue.

RE: Flying J Indianapolis Fire

Gotta think about all those fuel additives and corn chips in there... plenty of fuel sources!

RE: Have any of you traded in Class A Motorhomes for Toyhaulers?

You need to look at the DRV FullHouse. It has the most luxury feel but still has a garage. Most toyhaulers seem to be setup for the younger weekend crowd.

RE: Trailer Saver hitch

We have a TSLB2H as well. Combined with a MorRyde pinbox the trailer rides smooth.

RE: Removal of SuperGlide Capture Plate from Morryde Pin Box

I put a pair of visegrips on the rod to keep it from turning. Remove the 2 front bolts, 2 rear bolts and the plate drops off. Then remove the 4 white plastic bushings that are on the side of the hitch. 2 on each side. They allow the MorRyde hitch head to move more side to side. With the Pullrite, they limit the movement so it doesn't affect the hitch.

RE: disk brake conversion

Send your info here for a quote info@stopyourtrailer.com Or go to Stopyourtrailer.com and see what they have. They came in cheaper than me ordering the parts and doing the conversion myself.

RE: New 3500 DRW

Useless for towing anything over 4-5000lbs. The lifted suspension is softer and will make the rear sag and the headlights aim for the stars..

RE: Tailgate - Advice needed

When I had my Dodge, I used this one- http://www.autoanything.com/hitch-bed-accessories/61A2419A0A0.aspx I prepped and painted it to match the truck, 2006 Patriot blue. It worked well, was well built, I walked on it, sat on it, used it as a tool bench, etc.

RE: fence post sewer holder

Or buy a small can of Acetone and quickly wipe the plastic. Then spray paint it. It will Degloss the pipe. I sprayed about 2' of each end of ours. It's all you ever see anyway.

RE: 5th wheel toy hauler width

We're 14' wide at the living room with opposing slides.

RE: DRV Mobile suites Naples

All DRV's have 8k axles or 8k MorRyde suspension standard. The larger triple axle DRV units have 3 8k axles with a 24,000lb rating. 17.5" H rated tires and rims are standard. Then figure 20-25% pin. So having a DRV 43' unit weighing 23-26000lb's isn't unheard of. The frame is over engineered to begin with so the limiting factor is your truck. 43 Naples Length 43' 4" | Est. Dry Weight 19,400 Lbs. | GVWR 23,000 Lbs. Specifications 15" Custom Triple Box Tube Frame 101" Wide Body Frame Goodyear® 17 1/2" H-Rated Tires Automotive Disc Brakes 8,000 lb. Rated Axles Taken from the DRV website

RE: DRV Mobile suites Naples

DRV's are pin heavy. You'll be closer to the 5k pin loaded. By the time you add propane and the normal camping stuff, you'll be 21-23k easy.

RE: 2016 Grand design Reflection 337RLS

Also depends on the shower head. If it's something like the Oxygenics that is 2.5 gallon a minute, you can have long or bac to back showers.

RE: Wind Break 5th Wheel

Been there done that. Fuel saving 0 none nada. Time saved from scrubbing bugs off the cap.... Priceless!

RE: Jayco Seismic

Seismic's slides and leveling are electric. That's the only downfall I see in their construction. Would rather have the hydraulic version.

RE: Think we have found it....Grand design Solitude 365 DEN

Check out the Grand Design Momentum line of toy haulers. Loft and rear beds for the kids, some have second bathrooms, good size kitchens, etc. We are considering a change to the 397TH ourselves.
