RE: What would you buy...

I would buy a $15k toyhauler and spend the rest on a Sand Rail with a LS7, Albins sequential, full body, heated seats etc etc. The toys are much more fun than a toy hauler. Toy haulers are just for transportation and sleeping. I don't get to my destination to sit inside and watch TV. I use it for the 3 S's. :)

RE: Fixed rear bunk in weekend worrior

I've never seen/heard of a Warrior with a rear solid mounted bed. My 2004 Warrior had a rear bunk on struts. My buddies 2002 Warrior had a rear bunk on struts. My buddies 2003 Warrior had a rear bunk on struts. Sounds to me like it was modified by someone, not how it came from the factory. A rear bunk that won't let toys in, kind of defeats the purpose of a toy hauler.

RE: Weekend Warrior FS2500 water tank repair

This stuff is so easy to use and still amazes me how well it works. Sandable, paintable, etc. I've used it several times. Best feature is you can apply it in wet areas so you won't have to pull your tank. Heck it claims you can apply it 'under' water! http://i5.walmartimages.com/dfw/dce07b8c-cdf2/k2-_4ae13609-c1ba-4118-bebc-e6f95a15f768.v1.jpg http://www.jbweld.com/products/waterweld-epoxy-putty This will work on Weekend Warrior tanks. It worked on my buddies FS2600.

RE: Severe sway

I drive 65 mph- if thats what the law provides for. If the law permits 80 mph then I drive 80- PS- Driving below the speed limit is a real hazard so if you (this is directed to the folks that think life ends at 66 mph) aren't going to at least drive the speed limit you should stay off the highway! And for heavens sake- stay out of the fast lane unless you are passing someone. When you do pass, do it and don't spend 10 minutes. Be courteous and get out of the way. Love it and totally agree.

RE: Water Gauge

I've never had a problem with my factory gauge. When it hits empty, I still have some left.... good enough for me!!!!

RE: New Tire Recommendations

Ribs or the Bridgestones as stated. 235/85/16 will fit fine. Both great tires. Stay away from Carlisle. Really bad track record. Carlisle came out with a new line of tires a few years back and they have had a great track record. Maybe on wheelbarrow tires....... If you have been around the toyhauler scene for any amount of time like I have, you would understand.... I spent many hours on the side of the road helping buddies replace blown Carlisle tires.....

RE: Tires question

No tire is going to last for a very long time. Too many factors. Time Sun Use Temps Inflation Load Speed Best thing you can do is run your trailer every day. This will eliminate most issues. This probably isn't realistic, so you have to live with the fact you will have to replace them every 5 years or so.

RE: EFI onan

Your other option is to go to a LPG powered generator. I never had problems with my carbureted Marquis 5500 in my toy hauler because we used it often, but now I have a little 2500 LPG model in my truck camper and am enjoying the cleaner burning fuel with less residue. LP gensets burn through lots of fuel. I can understand having one on a standard 5ver but on a toyhauler with dedicated fuel tanks, it just doesn't make sense. Agreed. Truck camper compared to a toy hauler is apples to oranges. Can't compare.

RE: Severe sway

Holy cow!!!!! This was quite a confusing thread to read. All I can figure out is you need a WD hitch!!! Why in the world would you tow without one?

RE: Please Help Did I buy too Big of a toy hauler?

doesnt that 6 cyl eco boost only tow 5,000 pounds? No, more than that. The least amount I have found is 7600lbs. Depending on truck configuration of course. Would it be better if I tell ya you should get a F250 with the diesel? That is my normal response. Trying to be more realistic.

RE: Please Help Did I buy too Big of a toy hauler?

In my 12 years here I've never seen Linc use the word "peppy" before. Every day is a snowflake. Hahahaha. That's awesome.

RE: Please Help Did I buy too Big of a toy hauler?

Any of the newer 1/2 tons will work. Tow ratings went up in the last couple of years. The new F150 has a turbo V6. Very peppy. I think Dodge is putting a small diesel in a 1/2 ton now.

RE: Please Help Did I buy too Big of a toy hauler?

Yes, anything that goes in front of the axles will add hitch weight. IMO, not enough truck. At least need a true 1/2 ton. Like a Chevy or Ford. Let the bashing begin!!!!!! LOL

RE: T bucket hot rod in a toy hauler

Weight is no problem My sandrail is 2800lbs and I drive that right up in my Warrior. Width at my rear paddles is 94" and I fit in with a little bit on each side.

RE: DRW or SRW

Hey moman1. Just for kicks, now start a new thread and title it, "Should I get a Ford or a Ram dually?" :B And in that thread ask some advice on oil. Then finish it off with a good old ST vs. LT tire question. It will break the internet... AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Freggin hilarious both of you!!!!!!!

RE: DRW or SRW

I always get a kick out of folks that will wait to see the answer they want to hear and then acknowledge that one.... If you already have your mind made up against a dually, then why post? I don't have my mind made up yet. I have to use the equity in my current truck to get out of my MH. So I'm trying to decide between a used special purpose dually with another livable daily driver truck or a really nice SRW brand new Denali 3500 that can be dual purpose. I'm just responding to the ones that share what I asked for. I asked for real experiences, not advice. So to all of those that shared their advice, thank you and no offense intended. I welcome the advice since I'm new to a fifth wheel. But, I'm mostly interested in the experiences. So why do you feel the need to troll? What's it to you? Troll???? That is the funniest thing I have heard in a while. Check my history with this sight. I am the furthest thing from a troll. I have been preaching and giving real examples of weights and loads etc for years. That comment just shows how little you know about the toy hauler forum. Good observation there Captain Obvious. I already stated I'm new. And yes, if you make a comment the way you did that only criticizes, adds nothing constructive to the thread itself, and only offends someone based on assumptions, you are a troll. Why make a statement on this thread like you did above when there is absolutely zero to gain? If you have nothing to add, simply move on to another thread. AHAHAHAHAHAHA. You can't even follow your own thread and comments. Back a couple of pages, you actually THANKED ME for giving real world advice. Now because you focus on one post, you call me names...... Try to keep up. Yes I did. And I meant it. But then you had to troll and make an accusatory comment that contributed nothing to the thread. That's trolling. Did it benefit you to do make that comment? Then why do it? You still haven't answered that question. And now, you're still taking focus off the purpose of the thread to troll. I'm done with this distraction and you're obviously not going to let it go. So, make your comments as you wish and I'll just choose to ignore the ones that are not constructive. Deal? Trolling is stating facts??? I guess I am a troll....
