RE: Considering a new truck

I used to haul an AF1150 also. Traded it for the Host Mammoth.

RE: Considering a new truck

Truck is stock. I added TL frame mt tie downs and fast guns. It hauls the TC very well. Rock solid even at 70MPH. Get the factory 5th wheel prep also and a B&W hitch for it. 3600 is the number I think.

RE: Considering a new truck

I love the factory air system. I haul a heavy TC and a 5th wheel, just not at the same time.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

does 20 pages qualify for a sticky? I have no clue on that, But I would have appreciated a thread like this when I was looking at the Mammoth on line. The nearest dealer is 3 states away.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Wish they would come up with a solution for a mammoth with theater chairs in place of the dinette/couch. Seems like they got everything working except reclining seats. Sure you can try a wall hugger to replace the rear couch but there's not much room width wise and it's also in a odd position around the door. Seems like nobody is solving for what EC is offering in the 1165/1200. That's a shame because I think there are lots of folks that don't like the dinette and are looking for something more relaxing. Empty nesters don't really care about additional sleeping areas. Liked the EC chairs, hated the quality of the overall product. Liked the Mammoth quality, storage but still hoping for an eventual dinette and couch replacement to theater recliners :) I'm still a few years out but one can hope. In looking at my 6 foot couch(it replaced the dinette) I think it would be easy to put 2 theatre chairs there. Maybe check out flex steel or Brad and Hall(I think that is the correct name) There is 6 feet of space there to work with and you could bring them out a few inches so they recline. Only issue is the heater is under the left side, would probably need moved. Maybe move furnace between the chairs under a small cabinet built to hold remote and drinks.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Bedlam, have you heard anything new on your order. You must be going crazy............ We're scheduled to pick up our new Mammoth the third week of April. Apache RV and Host have been good at keeping the schedule on time and keeping me aware of changes since I placed my order. I have high expectations of both and have no reason to believe they will not deliver on them. I'm hoping for an updated Torklift product to go with this TC. We'll see if this makes my required deadline of the first week of May... The 3rd week of April can't come fast enough. It's getting close. Congrats and I want to see pics. I know you have trips planed, it will be fun.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I'm curious if any of the Mammoth buyers considered the Everest? Pretty much the same price point and the Everest gives a wider rear couch. That half couch/ loveseat on the Mammoth doesn't look very comfortable and too short to lie down. Are the other differences? My wife and I did consider the Host Everest. We went for the Mammoth because we could get 2 couches. Or 1 6 foot couch that makes into a bed and 1 4 foot love seat that makes into a bed for really short people. We like having options on where to actually sit in the camper. This was the one thing we did not like about our AF. No place to sit except the dinette. Look at the double couch option on the Host web site. It explains it well. We also really like the high low table because it is very adjustable and user friendly. The mammoth was just a really good fit for us. Leaving tuesday night for 6 days, can't wait.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I don't have the slide out tray. I just crawl in. I'm 6 foot 200lbs. I can almost turn around in there. I just spent a few hours in there doing my inverter. Although if it's close to the back I sit in a chair and lean in.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I also took out the auto transfer switch. I'm not sure why I even had one. I didn't order a gen set. This is my 8th RV in 24 years. Except for the 2 diesel pushers, none of them came with decent converters.

RE: My view

Thank you for posting great pics. I love them. Please post more.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I went with an AIMS 4k inverter. It has a 3 stage smart charger and an auto transfer switch. Also has a control panel I could mount inside and has some good info displayed on it. Pics will be coming. THANK Bedlam for all the pics.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I think the cab over in my Host is huge. I am 6 foot and I have a lot of room above my head when sitting there. I really like the up graded escape hatch Host uses. I installed the 4k inverter this weekend. Love it. I can run my fridge or hot water on electric going down the road. I'll try and send Bedlam some pics to post(LOL). It will run the AC or fireplace also.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

They must have gone with the double latches shortly after your build. After you mentioned that, I did remember seeing the first Hosts with just one latch. The black tank flush has been an unlisted option for the last couple of years and is now standard. zb39 has the flush with 2017 graphics on his Mammoth. I also have double latches on the basement storage. I do not have the slide out tray.

RE: National Parks June/ July... A/C needed?

I'm from PA and have done a number of trips like that. GO FOR IT! I did Alaska in 5 weeks from PA, had a ball. Don't let the retired crowd get you down. Those of us that still work need to just go and do it.
