RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

They make a locking hitch pin that is threaded, a spring loaded nut fits inside the tube of whatever you are going to insert into the receiver. I use them and no sway at atl to the tray or bike rack https://www.etrailer.com/Hitch-Locks/Lets-Go-Aero/63232.html?feed=npn&gclid=CjwKCAiAp5nyBRABEiwApTwjXk50x20iJUmhxRHSvrVpsxjitnWqO-Lj30w7pXHlW6MxikTPSVmkLhoCKhwQAvD_BwE

RE: Your favorite features.

Sealy Posturpedic queen size mattress with a down topper we sleep really well, 200 watts of solar so we rarely use the generator. No slides = nothing to break

RE: What happened to Side entry?

My friends just bought a Lance 1162. it has a landing and side steps (OEM) that allow them easy rear door access without disconnecting the horse trailer.

RE: Used truck camper

Those campers are really heavy. You are going to need a dually period to not overload the rear tires. Most folks would recommend a 450/4500 or 550/5500 to carry them. the newer campers with a rear landing pretty much eliminate the rear door access towing issues.

RE: 1 ton SRW debate

Have you searched out west for the truck you want? Long beds are more common out west. I have not, how would one buy a vehicle 1/2 way across the country? I would think freight charge would be significant. I bought my F350 CC LB DRW 4x4 in Texas and had it shipped to California for $1000

RE: tire question

I didn't know you were talking about logging trucks. 80 mph is as fast as I've ever driven with the camper on my truck and its just for a short distance passing another vehicle. I would have said that same thing before November when I drove from California to Kentucky and back. 4 days each way averaging between 75 and 80 mph the entire way. Of Course I had 6 brand new tires on the dually...

RE: tire question

Me on I5 in the central Valley passing a semi at 65. I was running Toyo Open Country tires 285/75R16 rated at 3750 I was right at the tire rating and I had a belt separation. The left rear tire shredded almost instantly. I fought for control to keep from rolling and to get to the shoulder safely. I upgraded to 19.5s after that just for the peace of mind. rig was a 2003 F350 CC SRW Longbed 4x4 carrying a Lance 1055 https://ridemonkey.bikemag.com/attachments/img_20131225_103630_087_zps6d4f9f29-jpg.139757/ height=480 Do you think it was a weight problem or just a bad tire? I was running right at the weight limit. And Toyo was having belt separation issues. I swore off Toyo after they refused to cover my tire and body damage under the recall that had been issued. That said I will never run tires near their weight limit again. Not worth the risk.

RE: DRW back to SRW

I would never go back to SRW. After feeling the difference in stability in 60mph winds on I80 in Wyoming and Nebraska this past November and having driven an SRW modded with stableloads, airbags and 19.5 tires is similar conditions the Dually wins hands down with a top heavy load regardless of what the rated payload numbers might be. Just my opinion after 10 years carrying a 4600 pound camper in the bed.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

Plus you're a lot more likely to get some help with this imaginary tree if you have cold beer on hand. I don't even drink, but now I'm thinking I should add beer to my tool kit for that reason. I carry a bevy of Non Alcoholic beers with me. Been sober since 1981.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

Well I do carry pruning saws and loppers, not so much for camping purposes but for the work I do. And a bucket and a shovel. And a jigsaw and an inverter. I suppose if I had to I could cut a tree out of the way of the road. The thing about being stuck somewhere is it brings out your creative side. I'm sure Buzzcut1 could claw his way through an 8-inch tree with his churchkey if he had to. I carry an axe and two different sized folding hand saws at all times. But I make dang sure that I can always easily crack open a cold beer. A man has to have his priorites straight.

RE: Rear end ratios

All me knows is me loves the 4.10 gears in our 2018 PSD Superdutuy when hauling our camper and towing our jeep. IMHO: not the best gears for fuel economy. - Mark0. I didn't buy the thing to cruise the mall or ride up and down the road doing 85 while towing nothing; I bought it to tow a load. I'm over 18k lbs 90% of the time and drive 65ish. I would be sick if I had gone with the 3.55 gears. I could have lived with 3.73 gears, but DA Ford no longer offers that ratio. With what I haul/tow and how I drive, 3.55 gears would not have helped my mileage any. brad That's because you don't have the SUPER super duty that Kayteg has . that and Brad is not a blowhard

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

this is my most essential camper tool, I would be lost without it https://cdnimg.webstaurantstore.com/images/products/large/29339/624513.jpg

RE: Propane smell

BBQ grill in a compartment?
Buzzcut1 12/19/19 08:02pm Truck Campers
RE: Leave it on or take it off

if you are worried about the leaf springs , air up the air bags. Besides I didn't worry about it on my last F350 and I am not worrying about it on my current one either. Camper stays on the truck 99% of the time. I live in earthquake country and the camper will do way better on the truck in a quake than anywhere else. Its also my bug out vehicle

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

We use this one: Coleman Propane Grill It fits nicely in a compartment of the AF camper x2
