RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Truck should be here in a couple weeks. I am going to buy a CM RD steel bed for it. There is a dealer about an hour from me.

RE: Side entry - pros and cons?

October 2016, we did the NorCal coast going south and I-5 going north without stopping at any weigh stations or truck checkpoints. October 2017, we cut through the northern part of CA but I was the back routes from Reno to Shasta before getting on I-5 to head farther north without stopping at any weigh stations or truck checkpoints. Both times we had the camper loaded on my flatbed and were towing my enclosed trailer behind it, so we either looked like a RV or were given a pass due to out of state plates. This is my experience. I will not be stopping unless there are signs up saying pickups have to stop. My 5500 with flatbed is a pickup here in PA. They would have a tough time ticketing me for not stopping unless there are signs posted for this.

RE: Side entry - pros and cons?

I feel for the guys that live in CA. I'm not concerned if I travel thru(except for all the dope smokers) I will not be stopping at any scales in CA. I didn't stop 2 years ago when I was there. Because I don't live there and my trucks are not registered there I don't need to know all the individual laws concerning them. Just basic traffic laws are fine. If they want to pull me over and tell me to run over the scale, no problem, I will. I only need to know what my state wants. Here in PA you don't run over the scales unless your commercial. I know guys with flatbeds and guys with semis that are private only. No DOT numbers. They don't hit the scales. I don't know why CA wants to be so complicated, maybe it has to do with money. I here the state is broke.

RE: Jeep Wrangler Prices

If you can only get $500 off of MSRP your a lousy buyer. PM me I can get thousands off a new now with just a phone call. Good grief it's not that hard.

RE: Trade-ins... when did things change?

I am not seeking 30k for a trade-in. Like any reasonable owner I am seeking a fair valuation so that I know what its worth. That way one can see how much room there is between what it could potentially be sold for and what the dealer is offering. Profit is what keeps dealers in business. Fair pricing is what keep customers coming back. I am sorry but a 12k to 15k profit is gouging. That 12 to 15 is gross profit not net profit, huge difference. If you think that a business can stay in business with less than 50% gross profits, you would be wrong. You should see what the gross profit is on women clothing. 500 % is the norm. Yes I have been in business for the last 27 years, I'm the owner not an employee. If they offered you 18 that was a serious offer.

RE: Lancer Camper. Inc Sold Out

I've been always strong admirer of "family tradition" business. Big corporations have the same production rules what communism did. Always amazes me how people manage to insert the big bad communism(socialism, etc) into every conversation. Big business has nothing to do with communism, and everything to do with good old American capitalism and greed. I also enjoy how people seem to think little business = good and big business = bad. Since any successful little business usually becomes big over time, at what point does the business get big enough to become "bad". X2....

Just watched 2 The Profit episodes. Is Marcus going to invest in dope. I hope not. If he does I'm done with CW. Just my .02 cents.....

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I did order the dual fuel tank option. 72 gal total. It is available on the 60 cab to axle also. With 5 6 gal diesel cans I am over 100 gallons. 1000 mile range roughly.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

At some point I would want a cabinet between the camper and the headache rack. I will put the spare there initially. I am thinking of bolting a piece of steel or aluminum to the bed for the camper to bump up against. Actually there are rubber stops built into the camper that will contact the steel or aluminum. I will not be going custom although I have a local guy who could make some changes to the stock bed. The beds I'm looking at have steel frames underneath the bed. Is your 1 hitch factory or did it come with the bed. I assume the other is a TL super hitch.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I have all 2ga wiring and 150A breakers at each power source in my setup. From the truck on a constant duty 200A solenoid and circuit breaker runs charging power to left lower box where I have a power terminal strip/buss bar. From this strip are all my other connections: 1. Five batteries in the lower left compartment through a circuit breaker 2. Five batteries in the lower right compartment through a circuit breaker 3. Anderson connector to the end of my SuperTruss for my future trailer power bank 4. Anderson connector to the end of the SuperHitch for my camper power connection The camper has 150A breaker off the batteries before going to a distribution point in the generator compartment. An Anderson connector is hung off this distribution point and ties into the connector on the SuperHitch. The 7-pin plug still has the power pin active and I see no reason to disable it. You are carrying a ton of power there. You can supply your neighbors with power. Is this just for boon docking or are you powering a giant killer laser or a huge electric smoker To remove or load the camper is the same as before except for that additional Anderson connector. The camper can charge the batteries in the truck house batteries via solar, generator or shore power. The truck vehicle batteries are constantly connected via 7-pin power but switched on the 2ga. If I ever see a need to completely isolate the vehicle batteries, I can add a switch to my external 7-pin wire harness or just keep it simple and unplug from the vehicle. Since solar charging keeps at least a trickle, I have not found a reason for isolation and welcome the maintenance charge on the truck.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Made a change today. I called the dealership and changed it to a 84 inch cab to axle length. This way I can go with a standard 11.3 ft bed. Does anyone think there is a problem with attaching the camper to an aluminum bed. They have a steel sub frame under them. I would be using fast guns to attach. I have a lot of experience with aluminum roll back trucks and attaching chains to the sides. There is no flex etc. They are very strong.

RE: Truck Camper and Razorback Football

I saw one of these while I was out west this past summer. They were with me in Cody and Yellowstone. It was small but looked good and was road worthy. GO FOR IT!!!
