RE: Host Mammoth camper

Wait, you're planning on running your A/C on a 3000-watt inverter? Where will the inverter get all that power? LiFePo4 battery bank with 600 usable Ah. May increase from there if needed. Plenty of room in the basement. Are those 12v batts. How many will you use?

RE: 2019 Arctic Fox 1150 deposit made

I've always like the AF 1150 dry bath. The 1150 is an old model that's been around for a long time. In 2005 we almost bought one but instead opted for the Eagle Cap 1150 (now discontinued) which was lighter in weight. Do you know what the newest 1150 will weigh? I'm sure close to the 5k or 5,500 fully loaded up for camping. Our current setup is hard to keep under the 14k GVW of the truck. But always under the axle ratings.... But note my truck has 85 gallons of diesel under the bed if fully topped off thanks to Titan Tanks. Titan has a 85 gal replacement tank?? awesome...I want one.

RE: Living in Cap over trailer full time advice

I could go either way here. I work with students every day. If your getting a degree where you can make great money I would probably stay in the apt and take on more debt. You will be more comfortable and will prob get better grades. If your not getting a degree like that then I would try to save some money. Your young so you can prob put up with anything. Good luck.

RE: Most comfortable riding

What air ride do you have and what is a 16 Ram 2016 Ram Laramie limited 3500 DRW. Factory air ride in the rear. Rides wonderfull loaded heavy or empty. Zero issues with my 5th wheel or my Host camper. No crazy sway or anything. I have driven as fast as 78mph with the Host on but normally stay at 65 to 67. Faster with the 5th wheel, normally 67. I have 22k on it now almost all with my old AF1150 or the new Host or the 5th wheel. I live in PA, this truck has gone to KY 3 times, Yellowstone and FL, NH in the last 14 months. All were with the TC, Yellowstone was 5th wheel. I love this set up. This truck is a keeper for sure.

RE: Most comfortable riding

My 16 Ram with factory air rides very smooth, empty or loaded quite heavy. The smoothest truck I have ever had.

RE: Most comfortable riding

Thats like asking which truck is the nicest looking with a truck camper.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

How is the camper attached to the Douglas bed, front and rear. 2 options. Perfectly aligned brackets that match the camper. A pin is inserted and it's locked in. They are pretty much out of sight. I will have frame mount brackets and my originalfastguns. Not concerned if one would temp block a door. I guess with the pins there is no give etc. Still an interesting idea for locking down the camper. I wish they were somewhere besides 3k miles from me.

RE: Mammoth ordered! And now in production!

Mine came with the auto transfer switch already installed. I did not order a gen set. I took the switch out because I did not need it. If someone does , let me know.

RE: Anyone gone from a Truck Camper to a Super C?

I have owned 1 gas class c, 1 gas class a, 2 class A diesel pushers. 40 and 45 feet. 1 5th wheel, and 3 TC's. They all have there pros and cons. Each MH was owned for at least 6 years and driven close to 10k miles a year. At the same time I also owned a TC. They get used for diff things, diff trips. There are class A DP under 34 feet these days, but they can only tow 5k. step up to 37 feet and it's 10k. Lots of choices in the small class a DP and the super c. Not all super c are 40 foot plus. It pays to look around a lot if your going to only own 1. We are thinking of selling the 5th wheel and going back to a 37 DP. We will be keeping the mammoth. Again they are used differently.

RE: Mammoth ordered! And now in production!

Awesome, always good to hear about another one. I have the 9k AC. I don't like to be hot and it hasn't let me down yet. I have run it more than once on inverter alone.

RE: Mammoth ordered! And now in production!

That is light for batteries. Nice!! My 6 volts are 72lbs each and the inverter is 74lbs. So 506lbs plus a few for cables etc. Batteries were $80 each and inverter was about $1150 with the remote panel.

RE: towing thru the mountains

Both of my gassers were awhile ago. But I remember the engine heating up while climbing mountains. I hated that.

RE: Mammoth ordered! And now in production!

I went Host, but I liked their FP the best. Access to the bed from both sides is huge. I admit the dump valves were a little strange at first. Now I don't even think about it. Good luck with your purchase.

RE: Host Mammoth camper

I would say your truck is a lot like mine. I have the factory air suspension. I love it. True story. Earlier this year I loaded the camper on the truck and was going to a shoot at Knob Creek. I loaded a few guns and a lot of ammo. Camper had no water in it. I drove about 20 miles to my local cat scale. Drove great. I was 15,800 total. OK, to much weight for me. KC is 1000 miles round trip. I am lighter coming back though. I took 2 guns out and about a third of the ammo. Went back and weighed. 15,100. I went with it. Filled with water when I got there. No issues at all. Ram rates your rear axle at 9750. AA who builds it rates it higher, 10-11k. Check your tire ratings, you should be good with the factory ones. Host says my TC weighs 4275 and they were spot on, I checked 10 minutes after loading it the first time. Enjoy it I just picked up an enclosed trailer for future creek trips. All weight will go in the trailer and I will be using a WD hitch. I will also be loading the trailer with a scale under the ball so I can keep track of tongue weight.
