RE: keystone Sprinter quality??

Just be sure you look for water damage in the walls and the roof area. Look at the suspension, springs, axles, and the floor to make sure it is all straight. If you can get an inspection from an independent repair shop that would be good, too. That model year should be built pretty well since it is before the Covid builds which I am finding are pretty much thrown together. Good luck, Curly

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System for FW

TST works very well. It has saved me more than a few times from leaky valve stems to nails in the tires. Cheap insurance to keep you going. Curly

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

Today's trucks from the factory are too tall as it is, to really do a good job of towing a fiver without a nose high trailer. A lifted truck would be worse and there is really no way that I know of to compensate for bed rail clearance with a tall truck. I have the nose high issue with my stock truck and my fiver. I would put the truck down to stock height if at all possible, even if it is an equalizer hitch and not a fiver. Curly

RE: Observation--newer trucks tow fivers a bit nose high

The added truck height is killing me, on a good day I am 5'8" and it is a chore to get into the truck. I thought I had measured the old truck correctly but I must have missed something. The odd thing is that the top of the bed rails were very close to the same height as the new truck but somewhere, the bed height grew. Thanks for the responses. Curly

Observation--newer trucks tow fivers a bit nose high

Just came back from a 6,000 mile trip and noticed many of the newer pickups are towing fivers a bit nose high. I do the same due to the later model trucks being built that way. Just curious if anyone else has seen the same thing. Curly 2019 Chev. Double cab 2500HD, 6.0, 4:10 diffs, six speed auto 2013 Heartland Sundance XLT 265RK

RE: Fifth wheel length question

Overall I think that 30' is about right for us. We have one super slide and that gives us enough room to move about and if one of us wants to go "up stairs" to the bedroom, it gives us some separation. Curly

RE: Getting gas with long trailer?

Just watch the distance between the front of the store and with the space to the first set of pumps. Often times you can go to the right of the first set of pumps, past the front of the store and then pull to the last set of pumps for fuel on your left. Did it alot on the way to Oregon from Arizona. Also at Love's truck stops, often there is quite a bit of space from the front of the store to the pumps which really helps position for fuel, especially gas pumps.
