RE: Would air bags help any?

Sounds like you need a truck capable of towing the trailer you have not just airbags. What about the suspension system, brakes, rear end ratio, engine, transmission?

RE: F-150 to tow a light 5th - do I need HD cargo option?

Ask the RV salesman, they usually know what your truck can tow. Your truck will tow almost any trailer. The question is, Can you stop any trailer you are towing? LOL! RV salesman dont have a clue what a truck can tow. They will tell you what you want to know to sell you a trailer. Get the tow specs from the truck manufacturer, that is the only thing that will hold up in court if you have an accident and is the facts about your truck towing capability.

RE: Why you chose the TV you did

Forget about all of the personal opinions and go with the facts. Figure out how heavy the trailer is that you will be towing. Look at the towing specs for the trucks you are looking at and pick one that will handle the trailer. Its your money and your need, you are the one that will have to live with it.

RE: Is 37' to much for a shortbed SRW??

Focus on weight not length. Your decision you have the numbers.

RE: Towing help - again

You are legally responsible for having an adequate tow vehicle. Read the manufacturers tow ratings for your truck. The numbers you have do not address the fifth wheel tow ratings.

RE: Another WD Hitch Question

Never had that problem with or without a wdh. 50 wdh's will not help if you do not have enough tow vehicle to control the trailer.

RE: Towing with Chevy Avalanche will it be safe?

So what is the vehicle rated to tow????? The numbers you have dont tell you the tow ratings. Ask the dealer if you have to.

RE: Auto Leveling

That option is offered on the high end rigs. You can always get an after market auto leveler.

RE: Screw In Tire

I had a tire patched,a patch is the best way to repair a tire with a screw hole.Watch out, you will have all of the tire expert wannabes blaming the tire for picking up a screw because it was made in china.

RE: Which tripod stabilizer?

When someone is walking around inside the 5er it will bounce/wiggle. Rubber tires will bounce, suspension systems are made to bounce. To eliminate the bouncing/wiggling you need to keep the weight from pushing down on the tires and suspension by making sure your stabilizers are tight between the 5er and the ground. Don’t just let them out far enough to touch the ground, turn the crank more to make sure they are tight so they will not allow the 5er to push down on the tires. Use a bipod/tripod under the king pin. Make sure it is tight between the ground and the king pin, don’t just adjust it till it touches, tighten it so the front overhang will not move. Make sure to check the stabilizers and bipod/tripod every couple of days because they will loosen up over time. Doesn’t make sense spending a lot of money on landing jack stabilizers when the landing jacks are stable and don’t bounce up and down. If you have properly adjusted the stabilizers and bipod/tripod then you shouldn’t have any bouncing/wiggling. This has worked for me over the past 15 years. Chocks are to keep the 5er from rolling forward or backwards. They do not eliminate the weight of the 5er from pushing down and causing the bouncing/wiggling. If you park on a site that has a incline/decline then you probably want to use chocks to keep your 5er from rolling when you unhitch. There are a lot of other options out there to “eliminate” the bouncing/wiggling if you have the extra money and want to spend it.

RE: Finding Towing Capacity

The manufacturer has the only correct, factual, legal towing spec for your truck, the rest are funny figures. Contact the manufacturer.
wandering1 12/25/14 06:17am Towing
RE: Confused about towing weight

The figures you have for the truck have nothing to do with the 5th wheel tow ratings. Now that you know the trailer weights its time to look at the truck 5th wheel tow ratings. Contact the dealer or manufacturer to get the truck 5th wheel tow ratings. Don't follow personal opinions, get the facts. You are legally responsible for having an adequate tow vehicle.

RE: Finding Towing Capacity

Contact the manufacturer and ask. All the other sources mean nothing.
