RE: Trailer Tires...trusting the Goodyear Endurance?

People have been whining for years that no trailer tires are made in the USA. Now that one finally is people wonder whether it will be good. Goodyear listened and should be commended. They will get my trailer tire business.

RE: Just bought a '17 Chevy Silverado 1500

The equipment listed above could make for a decent towing experience, at nearly 30' long, a high quality weight distribution hitch with integrated sway control, such as an Equalizer, would be particularly helpful for windy travel days. Being a half-ton tow vehicle you will still encounter difficulties traversing steep inclines in mountainous areas, it will be slower at times but you'll get where you are going. On mostly flatlands towing should be a comfortable experience, that's an impressive CCC for such a light TT, but over-packing with non-essentials will negatively affect your towing experience. Here's hoping your new TV & TT meets all your RVing expectations. Thanks! You think I should try to go lighter and maybe a shorter TT? Say a 22' Coachman Clipper 17 BH there are a few for sell here that are like 2015 and a 2016 Says Gross weight is 3800 Pretty soon these folks will have you in a pop up. With a family of 5 I would go with the Greywolf. You will be within the payload rating and way under the truck's tow rating. In the mountains just press on the gas. You would have to do that anyway even with an 18 foot trailer. Remember these engines make peak power at well over 4,000 RPM's. You will see 4K plus going up steep grades and going down using your engine braking. Enjoy your travels.

RE: Learning to tow

Focus on keeping your truck between the lines and the trailer will follow. No need to constantly be looking back at the trailer.

RE: Question from Ron Gratz post in a sticky

Your right drsteve a WDH doesn't change the TW, but it does move some of that TW off of the truck and onto the trailer axles. The bottom line is what the tow vehicle axles weigh after hitching up the WDH.

RE: Help in knowing the climb on rt 40

You can't miss the heat, unless you hit monsoon. You are going through the Mojave desert and then the uphill from Needles to Kingman will likely be just as hot as Phoenix.

RE: KOA Petaluma....A mild rant

I always ask for a printed receipt, even if only one night and there is no balance due.

RE: ordered a new truck ** Updated, with pics

150 to 250 to 350. Next stop, 450? Seriously, awesome looking truck. The stuff dreams are made of. My dreams anyway.

RE: Question from Ron Gratz post in a sticky

Any weight moved to the trailer axles is weight no longer on the truck.

RE: Registration......Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr !!!

States have get their money one way or another. They all do it different ways. That amount of excise tax for a Roo does sound awfully steep though.

RE: F150 and towing advice to pass on

Heavy long trailer pushing around a fairly light pickup truck is not at all hard to understand. Heck, my truck weighs 8500 lbs when taking long trips and I get moved by the wind now and then.

RE: Changing running gears

If it is switching between 3rd and 4th just drop it into 3rd. I agree with the poster who said he wouldn't be putting too much money into that old of a truck. By the way, towing into a stiff headwind is no fun no matter what gears you have. At least give it some time amd see what it is like without the headwind.

RE: Big Horn Mountains

Steep and curvy going down the mountain towards Shell. Keep it slow and you will be fine. The speed limit is very low anyway through that stretch. Check out the Devil's Kitchen down towards Greybull of you get a chance. Really unusual and colorful rock formations.

RE: Hwy 14 from Cedar City to Bryce Canyon?

Without RV 14 is good. Cedar Breaks is pretty and the lava is neat.

RE: Our best trip yet... southern Utah!

There is no 4 miles of 18 per cent grade on rt 12. Where are you talking about?

RE: Our best trip yet... southern Utah!

Kodachrome Basin SP is nice, but is not on par with Capitol Reef.

RE: Potential Snowbirds - LOTS of questions!

I wouldn't worry about the size of your rig. You won't seem out of place anywhere you go. Make reservations for Florida now. I'm sure many parks are already full. I would plan a couple of hotels until you get out of freezing temps.

CA raising taxes again is news?

RE: New TT for 2015 F150 Eco-boost

Put some of that camping gear in the trailer and you should be fine with any of those trailers.

RE: Problems with a New Camper

Your slide out construction is faulty. Sorry to say but it has to go back to the factory. We have two slides and have been in around 200 campgrounds for about 900 nights. Never a leak or water coming in when closing and we have no slide toppers.
