RE: Update! SRW to DRW with huge trailer.

So you were over weight before (4000# GCW) with the SRW. Now you have 'converted' to DRW and tows better (wider wheel base on rear end) BUT your are still overweight because you still have a SRW (just wider butt) Band-aid fix. Exactly.

RE: 16" conversion with LT tires again

the rims I wanted were out of stock they told me a couple weeks at least, weekend warrior style so I decided in the interim to buy some new st tires, I actually had good luck with maxxis and westlake, turns out the new westlake st tires have a very similar design to the maxxis with a nylon cap, got 6 on ebay 225 75 15 10 ply E tires for 491.00 shipped to my door, then the next day my rims showed up........go figure. I'll use these for a year or so and then do the LT conversion, one thing I noticed on the westlake tires is the DOT code showed they were made 2 months ago and the max speed rating is now 75 mph vs 65 mph. The westlakes seem to be a very nice beefy tire much like the maxxis but around 80 a tire vs 130. no tax and free shipping too. When it comes to tires, u get what u pay for.

RE: 5th Wheel vs Bumper Tow - Weight

OP, You are correct that a 3/4 ton doesn't give much for pin weight. A 5er tows a whole lot better than a tow behind. If u r worried about tow ratings, look at a smaller 5er or just go with a tow behind.

RE: 16" conversion with LT tires again

I had that exact same trailer and did that exact upgrade. Everything fits and works great. No more worrying about tires after that.

RE: Here we go again, advice requested

Agree with Y-Guy on all aspects. If the toyhauler has the water tanks, or part of the water tank, in front of the axles and you tow with water, it won't matter how much weight you put in the back, your tongue weight will go up. I had a triple axle Weekend Warrior, 30' box, tongue weight was 1400lbs at the ball coupler. 120 gallons of water with no toys, tongue weight went up to 1700lbs. 4 quads loaded into the hauler, tongue weight went back down to 1400lbs. I have a Sherline tongue weight scale, so I was measuring right at the ball coupler. I have the same scenario with my current 5th wheel. 2640lbs of pin weight with no toys and no water. Full water and a 2800lb sand rail and 2 quads in the back, pin weight goes up to 3450lbs.

RE: Pulling with a full load of Water

I know we always want to top off the water as close as we can to where we will land, but how far is too far to pull with 110 gal of water and a loaded TH? When I had a toy hauler, I hated driving with full tanks - the truck was sluggish (gasser) That means u didn't have the right truck.

RE: Here we go again, advice requested

Titans are not built heavy duty enough to tow a decent sized hoy hauler. If u have to move batteries to reduce tongue weight, u don't have enough tow vehicle.

New or used?

RE: Smell Gasoline In My Toy Hauler

Actually, trailers do have new car smell, but it shouldn't smell like gas. I get the smell of gas in my hauler depending on how the wind is blowing. My fuel supply line to my tank runs through my hauler for about a 8" section. Of course that is covered by a metal box, but it isn't sealed.

RE: 2015 keystone 311 impact with 2012 4x4 crew cab Durmax

Totally agree with what NC Hauler is saying. Air bags or not, tow ratings are tow ratings.

RE: 5th Wheel owners with lifted trucks

My buddy had a 6" lift on his Duramax and picked up a new Weekend Warrior 5th wheel. Dealer told him he didn't need to flip the axles on the trailer..... I about died laughing to see how goofy that looked hooked up to his truck. As soon as we got home from that first trip, he had the axles flipped on the trailer and then it sat perfectly level. He also had the 3rd step added to the entry door.

RE: 2015 keystone 311 impact with 2012 4x4 crew cab Durmax

I was at my dealer today and he had me hook up to my 36 ft impact and measure the truck tire to the top of the wheel well it was 10 1/4 inches, when he lowered the 2800 lb impact my truck doped 3 an 1/2 inches it looked level. he assured me when my Harley and gear was loader in the garage the hitch weight will be less. the cool part he told me I didn't need air bags. I'm now a proud owner of a 2015 keystone impact. Salesman will say whatever they need to in order to make a sale.

RE: 2015 keystone 311 impact with 2012 4x4 crew cab Durmax

Yup 2800 lb pay load. With the 900 lb Harley and other gear would that change the hitch weight much? No. I put 3800lbs worth of toys in my trailer. With full water and toys, my pin weight goes UP 900lbs.

RE: 2015 keystone 311 impact with 2012 4x4 crew cab Durmax

11,656 is heavier than the empty weight on my 41' warrior. I use a 2012 F350 dually with a 30,000 GCWR and a 13,000 lb GVWR. you make your own conclusions from that.

RE: Separate garage?

Johnny H Lots of 4 wheelers being stolen around here. We bought chains and locks to lock ours up at night. I know someone can cut them. But, hopefully people aren't traveling around with cutters. Also, we've heard of generators being stolen. We also lock that up. Stolen generator??? Mine is built into a cabinet in my toyhauler. Would be alot of work to take that out of there...... :)

RE: leaving things in your ty

Don't leave any type of food. Not even bug spray. Left a can in a drawer and it was a mess after the summer. Ruined the paper in the bottom of the cabinet.

RE: Separate garage?

Don't have a garage and don't regret it. I bought my hauler to haul lots of toys. Not to sit inside and have a separate area from my garage. Been doing this since 2001 and have spilled gas, oil and antifreeze on the floor. Clean it up and the smell goes away.

RE: (My) very first blow out .

Here is one. Complete tread separation and minor damage to Camper. Two more with busted belt. All at the same time. BFG Commercial T/A's. All at the same tire. IO posted pictures and BFGoodrich would not honor any warranty because they were on a trailer. That being said, I replaced them with Firestone LT's. I stand corrected, although 848,000 of those tires got recalled because of the very problem you experienced. They were defective recalled tires. While I'm sure you suffered comp ta blowouts, not sure if that really counts as a valid LT trailer tire blowout since they were proven to be defective tires..? And from what you posted, sure seems your Comp Ta were defective... Actually those are the same tires I got installed on my TH, till Discount tire changed them out under the recall warranty... As some of you may remember,after getting some good recommendations here, I originally went with 7, 235/85 16E BFG Comp TA commercial. Only got about 500miles on them, they seemed to tow great. Then got the recall notice for the 848,000 BFG Comp TA tire recall. Discount tire installed 7 brand new Michelin XPS Ribs on my TOYHAULER in place of my BFG Comp TA commercial tires, NO CHARGE, all under the tire recall warranty. It makes me even a more loyal Michelin customer to see how they treated me when there is a problem. Not sure what happened for you with the tire recall/warranty..? Michelin the company that owns BFG,and took care of the COMP TA recall, could care less that my tires were on a TH/trailer. Did you get the recall letter...? or call the 800 recall #...? 1 call to Michelin/BFG about the recall, and my set of Ribs were waiting for me at my choice of any Discount Tire store. If you have documentation/bills with dot # for the defective Comp Ta tires you replaced, check to see if they were part of the recall. With what happened to your tires, sounds like they were part of the recall. If so then see if they will reimburse you for the replacement Firestone tires you had to buy... I posted the recall notice some time ago, here on the forum. http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/voluntarysafetyrecall Michelin also pro rated my 7 XPS Ribs on my TOYHAULER for ozone cracking. They were great to deal with and all they asked was what the tread depth was.
