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....

RE: DRW or SRW

This is going towards sounding like a tire thread...... Folks listen to what they want to hear. Truth hurts sometimes, and most don't want to hear the truth.....

RE: DRW or SRW

You'll get used to driving the dually. In my town we have a Facebook group called "Nice Parking, Moron!" where people post pictures of horrible parking jobs around town. I'm determined to keep my picture off of that page, so I stick it between the lines every time. Not me. You might as well put me in the "Moron" group..... But then, I also park way out in left field where no one is at.

RE: DRW or SRW

Real world experience: My buddy and I had very similar trailers, big 41' Weekend Warriors. Our loads were almost identical. Full water, 3000lb sand rails in the trailers etc. I have always had a dually, he always had a SRW Chevy. Was he always right there with me towing? Yes. He left his rig at home one trip and went down with me. He said the entire way, "I can't believe how much more solid your setup feels". He couldn't tell when a semi went by us, he couldn't tell when the wind was blowing... etc. Not sure how much more real life you need than that.

RE: DRW or SRW

Buy dually, get a cheap commuter car for daily driving duty. Easier to park, drive, and cheaper on fuel than either a SRW or DRW truck. This is exactly what I have for a set up.

RE: Trailer Lift Blocks

I had Weekend Warrior do essentially that at the factory, but I didn't add blocks, I had an entire section of 2" channel added the entire length of where the axle hangers are welded onto. Same here I hope it was tube and not channel. Using blocks is probably the easiest to do after the fact if done right! Yes, sorry, tube was used.

RE: Trailer Lift Blocks

Lift blocks are never a good idea for a trailers leaf spring suspension on a multi axle trailer, vs a truck, for several reasons. Notice axle makers nor the trailer makers offer them as OEM or a option on a leaf spring suspension. The safest way is as Lincster says using a sub frame from steel structural tubing welded to the trailers main frame rails with heavy side plates with adjustable holes. Tubing size to be determined by how much the trailer needs to be raised. I see one member went with 2" blocks on 5.2k axles with 5/8" diameter U bolts/heavier top plates and heavy custom made spring keepers. Exactly why I did it the way I did. Funny thing is, starting with the next model year trailers, Warrior started added that same component on all 5th wheels to clear 16" tires..... I wonder if I started a trend. LOL

RE: 3905 CR WW

It should have a 20000 GVWR sticker on it.Maybe it should have a 20000lb GVWR but maybe it has a 16000lb sticker because the GVWR is really 16000lb? You lost me on that one..... Warrior just didn't give any higher weight stickers. Right or wrong, they just didn't. I'm sure it had something to do with the laws in CA.

RE: Weekend Warrior M3305LE Weight

Wayyyyy too much with that motor. I have a LE3905 and have put mine on a CAT scale. The difference between our 2 lengths will cancel your slide. Does that make sense? Unloaded: Pin weight = 2700 lbs. Axle weight = 8900 lbs. Total trailer = 11600 lbs.

RE: 3905 CR WW

The 16000 GVWR sticker was what Warrior was putting on all big 5ers at that time. No way in heck that thing weighs 16000lbs, not with a few toys and water in it. It should have a 20000 GVWR sticker on it.
