RE: Best loop at Fort Wilderness for 40' 5th wheel

We stayed in 1421 back in December. We're 44' long and it was great. Seems most sites except up near the lake (100, 200) are fairly accommodating.

RE: Aux. Fuel Tank

48 gallons stock is awesome. I've done some longer trips through many desolate areas out west and that capacity would be fantastic. Now 138 gallons and I might balk at filling up from empty. :E But thinking about a week in the woods hunting with no fuel stations anywhere...would be sweet. Yes. Might even be enough to drive from NC to Idaho. :B

RE: Aux. Fuel Tank

My last two Super Duties. I had RDS 90 gallon tanks installed. Got the tank from Northern Tool and my Ford dealer installed them. I just picked up a new F450. It has a 48 gallon OEM tank. My 90 gallon RDS is scheduled to arrive in about a week. That'll give me about 138 gallons. :) By the way. Mine is gravity fed with a ball valve. I can leave it wide open or shut it off and use only the stock tank. Never had a problem and would definitely recommend them.

RE: New Ram 3500 Pricing

I can't quote pricing, but I got my 2014 2500 in Kernersville, NC about 8K less than anywhere else I checked. They had over 400 Ram diesel on their lot when I got mine. Did all negotiation on line. Good idea. I've seen their commercials down here in the Raleigh area. But not lately. I told him last night about Dennis Dillon. He's quite excited about that website.:)

RE: New Ram 3500 Pricing

Lariat? That's a 150. That would be even worse. I'd put an MDT on the job. That's one big Rv. I wonder what convinced him to even try that lashup.. a salesman? :S

New Ram 3500 Pricing

I have a friend who has had enough of his Ram 2500. Its not the truck. He loves it. But the Momentum 388 behind it is making too many terrifying moments on the interstates. I know what I paid for my Ford. So I have a general idea in helping him there. But what's a realistic Ram 3500 DRW going for these days after haggling and whatnot? I don't know the lines for Ram but I'd guess a comparable truck he's wanting would be something like a Lariat if it was a Ford.

RE: 2017 F450 with Fifth Wheel

By the way. If anyone is looking, Ricart is hard to beat. They are a corporate sponsor of the All American Quarter Horse Congress. They sell a bunch of duallies there because most folks there have some really big wallets with really big horse trailers. This year, a huge number of the trucks they ordered for the show did not arrive until well after the show. That's why they have so many now. As of right now, they have 30 F450s and 47 F350s that are at least Lariat, Platinum, or King Ranch.

RE: 2017 F450 with Fifth Wheel

Finding 2017 F350 and 450 DRWs is becoming quite difficult in the south. All three Ford dealerships in Raleigh say they just can't get them. Demand is far greater than supply and Ford and the parts suppliers are struggling. I had my favorite servicing dealer look on his Ford dealership website for me an F450 with about a dozen things I really wanted. Lariat, magnetic grey, black interior, etc. I had made a list just like if I ordered one. This one was the only one within 1000 miles that had everything I wanted on my list. A member here on the forums hooked me up with a Friends and Family X-Plan PIN. I sold my silver 2015 F350 on Saturday. On Monday, I called Ricart Ford in Ohio. We did the preliminary deal right there on the phone. On Wednesday morning, I was on Delta flight DL3777. :)

RE: 2017 F450 with Fifth Wheel

Just snapped a few pics before putting it away. I want to hook up the Vengeance and pull it out to make sure everything goes well. Plus I have the wet bolt kit waiting to be put on my Equa-Flex suspension. But once again, storms predicted this afternoon so both truck and camper will stay in the barn for the afternoon. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/DSC07104_zpsrluipuht.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/DSC07105_zpsde6ynnik.jpghttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/DSC07106_zpsltijshvn.jpg

RE: The weight police

How many times have you heard of someone getting killed because they are over the weight limits? I'm not now or have ever said anyone should tow overweight but your post is a little "Sky is Falling". Well said.

RE: 2017 F450 with Fifth Wheel

I would also like to see pictures of the new F-450 with the toyhauler hooked up. What color 450, and toyhauler? I'm working today (firefighter). So all it gets today is a good bath. Should be able to get some pics tomorrow.

RE: 2017 F450 with Fifth Wheel

Yesterday morning, arrived at RDU airport at 4:30am. Flight left at 6:10. Landed in Columbus around 7:40. After breakfast, dealer's driver picked me up around 8:45. As we pulled into the Ford sales office, there was the truck sitting there ready to go. Of course, it took a couple of hours to do all the paperwork and deny all the paint protections and fabric seal, etc. Probably close to 11:30, I pulled out heading back to Raleigh. 490 miles and pulled into the driveway around 7:30. I was exhausted. A fun but really long day. But I'd do it again if it meant the truck I wanted. Driving like that straight home for almost 500 miles gives you a lot of time to learn new things these trucks feature. Haven't touched the truck since putting it in the barn last night. It needs a bath terribly. LOTS of bugs on I-77 in W. Va. :) Pics will be coming soon.

RE: 2017 F450 with Fifth Wheel

I'm NOT buying anything, I promise. The 2015 is doing just fine. But I wouldn't be surprised if I don't make the leap in a year or two on a 2018 or so. But does anyone have a picture of a new F350 or F450 hooked up to a fifth wheel camper? All the pics I can find are hooked up to a gooseneck. I just want to see how well a fiver sits in the back. Not sure but the new Super Duty beds look awful deep. My 43' long Vengeance still sits just slightly higher on the nose with my 2015 and I have the hitch as low as I can without getting too close to the truck. If I were to get a new Ford and its even higher in the back or I have to raise the hitch, that would look silly. Well. I'm getting to be worse than my wife at the clothing stores. Read my first sentence just a short while ago. If all goes well, my flight leaves RDU airport at 6:05am tomorrow for Columbus Ohio. Picking up the F450, signing the papers, and heading back to Garner. I should be ashamed. But once the bug bites, its tough to cure.

RE: How many people use the patio on toyhaulers

Just FYI. For those who say they camp at places with no room for a side patio. Our awning sticks out further than the side patio. I like that because if its slightly raining, we can still hang out and watch TV while keeping dry. On hot days, it keeps the sun off and a breeze usually blows through between the awning and the patio floor. Its really nice. The side patio isn't like the ramp. Its much wider but only sticks out maybe 8'.

RE: New Toy Hauler

Awesome! We were at Disneyworld back in mid-December. About halfway through our week, a family came in with a WolfPack just a few sites down. Really sharp looking camper. Have a great summer!

RE: Best hauler for our needs?

I didn't mean a few times a year. We go every other weekend during the summer and probably once per month during the fall into winter. Models we are looking at are: Fuzion 369 Raptor 352 Voltage 3600 Edge 386 Voltage Triton 3551 The loft is pretty important to us, too. For my little old opinion, I'd probably go with the order you listed them except I'd put the Edge at the bottom. In my opinion, Heartland still struggles with quality issues and poor customer service. That comes from personal experience and other dealers who actually carried their models. We have dealt with RV Outlet in Danville several times. They now have one in Myrtle Beach. But the service manager in Danville once told me his favorite was the Fuzion because the Fuzion people were the best to work with on service and warranty issues. Most Fuzions nowadays also come with Sailun G rated tires. That's a HUGE plus these days. Have fun shopping.:)

RE: Best hauler for our needs?

I'm opposite azdryheat. No big fan of half bath but LOVE the side patio. But that proves the point that everybody is different and only you know what will be the right camper for you. I don't really mind the big size. One of my favorite destinations is a weekend to a local state park and lake about 30 miles from home. Its a great way to do a get-away quick. Our toy hauler is 43' long but the hassle of getting things ready for just a quick weekend trip is well worth it. Do you have any particular models in mind? That could help us point out things that you may or may not have overlooked, both positive and negative.

RE: Importance of extra 1/2 bath?

My .02 here. Half baths? Not a fan. But for us, its almost a necessity and it sounds like it will be for smithlaw, too. Having the separate black tank is a pain. But our old Cyclone actually had the hook-up for the drain pipe behind the axle while all the other tanks drained in front of the axle. That really sucked because you had to hook up the drain pipe twice. Watch your step! But our Vengeance has all the tanks drain out of the same pipe. That helps a ton. My son's fiance' goes with us from time to time. She sleeps in the garage. Its sort of her bedroom when we're camping. So having the half bath back there makes perfect sense. But if it wasn't for that, I think FR could have used that space for a pantry or something and it would be far more useful. smithlaw. With your daughters sleeping back there, it may be best getting a half bath. Just be 100% sure the golf cart will fit; especially if you have three-season doors on the back. Our half bath takes up a small portion of a corner of the garage but we still have over 10' of room for the golf cart.

RE: Side porch?

Our side patio is the best part of the camper. I don't think we'll ever go without one from now on if we can help it. The rear patio? We rarely use it. But the side patio makes for some sweet chillin'. Ocean Lakes last year. We're going back three more times this year. July ,August, and October. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/Ocean%20Lakes%20Oct16%20025_zpsgwkmcqwn.jpg
