RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Getting ready to go, I will give a full report on the Host and the dealership on how everything goes, as requested. Also lots of pics and actual weights.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

That is a great looking RAM. Do you attach the tie downs to the rail on the side of the flat bed. Do you have anything else to prevent side to side movement, or is this not a problem. I also like your tool boxes.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

You were taking 2 trips a month, can you adopt me and my wife. I would love to hear about your mods to the Host. Of course I'll probably hear about something I would want. Do you have any pics of your truck with the bed on it?

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Well, to be honest, we have been thinking about one for a few years. Does that count? It was just one of those things. Everything came together and we ordered. We still have and use our 5th wheel. Last year we got the TC out on 5 different occasions. Meaning it got used for 3-7 days all 5 times. That was the most we had ever used it in 1 year. Prior to that we would have used the MH or fiver. The discussion went along the lines of, if were going to use it more lets get the one we really want. At first there was a used one for sale in NY at a decent price. I missed it, I was second in line. First guy bought it. I could not locate any used ones we really liked for the money and they were all out west. So we ordered and got exactly what we wanted. First time we have ever bought a new RV and this is the 8th one. Still waiting for Monday, hope weather is decent thru PA and WV.

Tomoka state park in FL

I believe it is just north of Daytona. Anyone stay here. I'm thinking a couple days in March. Is it close to beach? Or way out of the way. What activities are there etc? We only have a couple days there.

RE: Yellowstone area summer rates?

It's a bargain compared to Fort Wilderness in FL. That prob doesn't help much.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Email and a phone call confirmed my Host is at the dealership. Getting prepped as we speak. I will be getting it tuesday 9am. Getting there Monday night hopefully, depending on weather. Will be staying at dealership with hook ups that night and will switch the next day. May stay a second night also depending on how fast we move. Then will head south for a day or so and start north on Friday. I'll prob load the AF this saturday. I keep it inside so weather isn't a factor.

RE: Torklift tie downs with Ram 3500 air assist

I put these on my 2016 last march, no issues. You just slide it down the frame a couple inches to clear the compressor. By the way, I love the air assist when towing the fiver or hauling the TC. Or running empty. Going to pick up my new Host next week.

RE: National Park Vacations might not Happen in 2017

I wouldn't get to excited. Yellowstone has been there a long time. I will be going in July for the 8th time. Can't wait. Go ahead and plan your vacation, I am. Have fun!

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I grabbed a pair last year for the same reason. The built in generator in the AF is nice but it is loud. Easy to start, just push a button inside the coach. I'm not that old that I can't go out and start a gen set. Not yet! Just called D&H, the truck is in Nebraska in a ice storm. Will get there tuesday and unload. We will head down Sunday and hope to grab it on Monday. Getting close. I will take pics and weights.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I agree with the above. I think Bill in NH actually owns the dealership in NY. He told me he had basically moved everything to NH because of taxes. I would have tried to work a deal with him but he did not want my AF in trade. I will let you know how things go in NC.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I'm heading south to NC. I got an email today saying it would be delivered this week. Now I have to try and clear my schedule so I can go get it. Again I would like to take a week to pick it up so I can use it a bit before bringing it north.

RE: Sold the Truck Campers, bought a Class B

This is one of the reasons I am getting a new Host. One 6 foot couch and a 4 foot love seat to sit on. Neither of us like the dinette to sit at for long periods of time.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Great news ... you still owe us pictures though, and don't forget to leave your tailgate at home and bring your tiedowns! ;) and turnbuckles and bed mat and wallet and ... I should remember most of this stuff. I am taking the AF1150 down to trade it in. We already worked the deal for it, I was very happy. I am hoping for a few days to run around with it down there before coming back north.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I just hung up with the factory. It is shipping monday to my dealer. Then I have to make a trip down there to pick it up. They are 8 hours south of me. I can't wait.

RE: Help us plan our trip! (Again). Montana and Wyoming

Sounds like a great trip. I have done that exact trip twice from PA in the same time frame with 2 kids. AWESOME time. Don't let the retired crowd get you down. I have done over 800 miles in one day more than once. We did Alaska in 5 weeks total. Awesome trip. When your still working you do what you have to do. We have done 49 states with both kids, Yellowstone 7 times. My wife and I love to drive. Kids still want to go with us and both are in college. Thinking about YS again this summer.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Right now the only plan is to flat tow a 2 door wrangler. Of course I have to buy one first. I would love to buy a RAM 5500 and put a utility bed on it for the camper but I still tow a 5th wheel. Also not sure if my wife would like the looks of a rig like that. I would love it though.
