RE: Wind scares the **** out of me

41' 5er hooked to a 1 ton dually. I can't tell if it is windy or not. I just rock and roll down the road.

RE: Generators

5500 will run 2 AC's and everything else at the same time. Fridge runs on propane when genny is not running.

RE: Importance of extra 1/2 bath?

1/2 bath??? Never heard of such a thing. My hauler is built to HAUL. I got the most cargo space available when I bought mine. 21' of totally open cargo. I can fit a 16' sand rail and 2 full size quads in my hauler. If not having a kitchen was an option at the time, I would have done that. So then I could haul my Sandrail AND a Razor.....

RE: Genesis Supreme issues

Yeah, I would not use Camping World. Have heard nothing but problems from them.

RE: Really lonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnng TH

There are a few of those out there. I know at least 1 of them was the owner of Warrior that built that for himself at 1 point.

RE: Dual axle vs triple axle

Ah, another reason to prefer duals over triples: higher tolls for that extra axle. Honestly I don't see the reason for a triple axle if the weight can be handled by two axles. You hardly see any heavy regular 5th wheels with triple axles anymore, most are two 8,000 lb. axles if they need the carrying capacity. "Don't try and justify not doing it, extra axle helps in many ways." Please explain how an extra axle helps if two axles can carry the weight? I'm not referring to an over-40 foot trailer, just say, a 38 foot trailer. After you comment about trying to compare semis to toy haulers..... I'm not going to try and explain anything to you.

RE: Dual axle vs triple axle

Triple all the way. I have towed my trailer for 12 years. Never had tire scrub or anything like that. Wheel bearings every other year, so I have 2 extra, big deal. Don't try and justify not doing it, extra axle helps in many ways.

RE: another what tires do I need thread

8000lbs total. If that is an accurate weight, I would run the Maxxis tires.

RE: Fuzion 369 with 2015 Chevy 2500HD Duramax

Doesn't matter what you add to the truck. It is still registered as a 3/4 ton truck. If you don't care about tow ratings then have a good time with that new trailer!!!!!

RE: Bumper Pull Toy Hauler and Tongue Weight

I bought what I needed for my tongue weight. I bought the Equalizer hitch. Stout enough for my weight and also had built in sway control. I also had to upgrade the receiver on my truck.

RE: Tahoe Transport Tire Rub

You don't have any "issues". Your tires are bigger than what the manufacture built the trailer for. Flipping the axles is exactly what should have been done when the bigger tires were put on. Flipping the axles is done constantly to 5th wheel toy haulers. Due to multiple reasons. Weekend Warrior even offered that as an option from the factory if you wanted it. I had Warrior add a 2" spacer to my trailer when it was built. Instead of flipping the axles.

RE: Tahoe Transport Tire Rub

Yep, tires are too big. Previous owner did the right thing by moving to a better tire, but he chose the wrong size. I tried the 235/85/16 tire on my 04 Warrior and got some rubbing. I went to 225/75/16 and plenty of room. I have 3 axles, so the drop in load capacity of the tire was still plenty for my rig.

RE: Grand Design Tire Options

A buddy at the dunes picked up a new Momentum a couple of weeks ago. Came with the Samson G rated tires. I'm impressed manufactures are doing the good tires. Maybe the really are listening to the public.

RE: I want Goodyear Marathons but......

Carlisle..... LOL Folks that have been around for a while will never trust those. I saw my buddy replace 4 tires on 1 trip. Yeah, I'm sure the tires were to blame. That's a good one! And I guess 3 generations isn't long enough? My family and I have run Carlisle tires as I've been alive. Not one issue on dozens of trailers. In fact, my ATV trailer just had a valve stem crack open at some point during a 3 hour Interstate drive and the tire looked shockingly normal until the tread and pressure was inspected. Thus, I continue to use buy Carlisle for all replacements on every trailer I own...which continues to grow in numbers and variety. Am I a fan-boy for Carlisle? Having experienced well over 4 decades of personal use and abuse, you bet am! Look at what you said.... ATV trailer.... Not a 13,000lbs+ toyhauler!!!!!! So, post up some weights that are comparable to toy haulers and we can talk. Whoa...what! That's funny. My ATV trailer tire was just a recent example. And what do weights have to do with anything? There are tire failures of "light" trailers and "heavy" trailers alike with blow outs. Failures could be a result of high %% of used tire weight capacity, but there is ZERO data on that. ZERO. What do weights have to do with anything???? I'm done. Good luck to you in la la land.

RE: Hauling a smart car in toy hauler fifth wheel

If you put all that in your TH, then the Smart should be no problem. I think the Smart is about 8'9" long and about 5' wide. I have a 12' garage and I have a lot of space to move around with it inside. I'm 6'3" tall and I drive it in the middle of the garage and have enough room to get in & out without the door rubbing the wall. Not knowing the size of your sand rail, I would guess the Smart is a lot smaller. Sandrail is 16' long and around 6 1/2' tall at its highest point. Rear width with dune tires is 97" wide. Although I don't have a garage. On purpose. When I had my toyhauler custom built, it was all about maximizing space and weight capacity. No slide outs and 21 1/2' of totally open cargo space. Then I have the kitchen if I need to.

RE: Hauling a smart car in toy hauler fifth wheel

How much does a smartcar weigh? 2500lbs maybe? I put my 2800lb Sandrail in and out of my hauler all the time. I think approach angle is more of a concern, but it can be rectified also. Here's what I found for weight specs. Weights and Capacities Curb weight: 1,808 lbs. Gross vehicle weight: 2,247 lbs. Max cargo capacity: 12 cu.ft. Payload: 507 lbs I backed it in the first time I loaded it and when I drove it out the front air dam scraped on the ground a bit. I now drive it in forward and don't scrap going in or out. LOL. If it physically fits, I wouldn't think twice of putting that thing in a toyhauler. That weight is nothing compared to what I have loaded. I have put my sand rail and 2 full size quads inside. That was pushing 3600lbs.

RE: New Attitude Trailer Leaning

I don't know why you guys are talking about doing alignments, truck shops etc. It is brand new. I wouldn't spend a dime of my own money doing repairs. Take it back to the dealer and tell them to call you when it is fixed. Simple as that.

RE: Towing

You should consider whether or not having the box of your truck available for storage while you are on the road is a significant factor. Don't forget that with a fifth wheel younwill still have the wart in your box when the trailer is not attached. When my hitch is out, I have a totally flat bed, just like the truck comes from the factory. Except it has a 3" diameter hole, but that is all.

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Cleaned it up from the last dune trip. Going to do some minor roof resealing this weekend and get ready for the next dune trip over Easter.
