RE: Thanks..and a Slide Question

We had probably the largest camper I could find and it had a slide but the wife is Claustrophobic so she did the camper for about 4-5 years and said she needs more room so now we have 3 slides (in signature...)

RE: Single Slide Truck Lean

We had an AC 1150 and it was slide heavy as the fridge was part of the slide. Every one I saw go down the road leaned a little to the passenger side. I split up my air bags and ran 25#'s on the drivers side and 35"s on the passenger side and that helped my truck balance the load along with stable loads

RE: AF 1140 Dry Weight

We had a 2000 AC 1150, loaded it was 4200#'s so YRMV

RE: getting trapped inside a park

And if you choose not to decide you still have made a choice... You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave. Someone should make a song with that phrase. :)

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

For our AC 1150 I put in lower stableloads and air bags and it rode much better. I split up the air bags as that unit had a slide and they always lean towards the passenger side so that side got 35#'s and the driver's side got 25#'s of pressure and she rode very well. But that was 4200#'s not 2800 so YRMV

RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

The dual support is ideal but I have the same Curt receiver on the front of my 2006 duramax and I've been ok with a clamp like this https://www.etrailer.com/s.aspx?qry=anti+sway+bike+rack+clamp That I found through the link Buzzcut1 posted. I use a similar clamp on the bike rack on the back of our fiver and it does help the sway (depending on the weight of your load) I carry a 3500 propane generator on the front and use some of the ratchet straps to hold and to stabilize the unit to the truck frame/body.

RE: My Folding Porch

This, I like the side step idea if you're towing a trailer or boat. Also I used a super truss under the 1150 to add a basket for the generator and the side step would give easier accessibility. I have a similar setup, only narrow to fit between the lights. The purpose of mine is to bridge out over my trailer tongue and turn the steps 90 degrees for a side exit. If anything a porch is SAFER because it allows you a wide stable place to step out and get your bearings before negotiating the scissor steps to the ground. For anyone of any age. Plus you may not want to stand on the ground, such as in the case of wet muddy conditions. Sit on the porch under the awning and enjoy the rain, high and dry.

RE: What is wrong sir?

If it were me I would make a nice flat bed trailer with it

RE: truck campers require registration like a trailer camper?

The insulation alone would be a nightmare to replace and if you looks at the construction depending on the year, it might have wood walls then those would harbor the mold also. Then there's the duct work and wiring, I'd pass... OK so the flooded title mite be a bad idea. can't the interior be completely stripped then pressure wash all the mold w/ vinegar? but the idea of a none clear title TC is still a possible way to save a few $s. I really like scratch and dent sales. remember this truck & TC will only be used a couple times a year so initially won't be a a big financial burden.

RE: truck campers require registration like a trailer camper?

In Oregon we have a title and registration for pick up campers and we bought ours with a damaged title, it was knocked off the stands and the guy we bought from used to work at a large trailer company (that went down on 2008). Anyway he bought it at an auction and repaired it thus the damaged title. At least with this method you know if your rig had previous issues, if it was not in place it would be easy to pass off rigs that had damage in the past to an unsuspecting buyer.

New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

THOR Industries, Inc. has announced the formation of Hymer USA, a new subsidiary focused on producing and marketing RVs using European manufacturing practices, automation and control standards, a first for the North American RV industry. Here's a link, short article but wondering if this will help much, they don't elaborate much; https://www.rvtravel.com/thor933b/

RE: Carriage 5 th who roof reseal

I reached out to the RV Armor company and for a 32-33' they quotes the job for $4200 FWIW. They have a fast motion video of the entire two day process and it's pretty extensive but I'll probably do it myself, some day... I can recommend the Liquid Roof product as I did mine and it is still holding up well today, two years later. I posted about it with picures of the process here. If you take a look make sure you read all the way to the end of the thread (9 pages) to see what happened and how it was fixed. Good luck. If I were to do it all over again I think I would use RV Armor. They come to you and guarantee a leak free roof forever. I have not used them nor do I know anybody who has, so cannot unconditionally recommend them, but just tell you what I probably would do. Barney

RE: Camper title and registration.

If we buy a rig outside of Oregon they also need to be inspected, the DMV people walk out to the parking lot and double check the numbers and that's pretty much it. Never took more than a couple of weeks so 147 days is quite the wait.

RE: Too big for a T/C ?

We had a AC 1150 because my wife is claustrophobic and we used it for 4 years but she won out so now we have a 32' 5er

RE: Prepping RV for private sale

X2 on the water damage, I would disclose but I would also fix and show the where and why and show what was done for the fix. If you're straight up it should not be an issue as long as it's fixed, if you really needed a tarp to keep dry it will probably come back to bite you if you don't. Fix the ladder but leave the inspection to the buyer, we have a list that we go through to check everything out before hand as most should.

RE: DRW back to SRW

I bought a dually because my wife is claustrophobic so I was looking at the largest Arctic Fox I could find and ended up with a 2000 1150, it weighed about 4200#'s loaded and I have stable loads and air bags which I split up because the slide side was heavier and it would ride level with 25#'s on the right and 35#'s on the left. Now we have a 9000# fiver and while I could step down to a SRW I really like the stability and the heavy duty brakes along with the transmission brakes, can I get that in SWR? Pretty sure but really like the truck and don't see any reason to upgrade the diesel for another couple hundred thousand miles. Also like having 6 wheels for more traction but that's my 2 cents. Bill

RE: Advice on selling my 5th wheel

X2 on the good pictures, it's not that hard but when I go shopping (for anything) I want to have a pretty good idea of whet I'm looking at, not a picture of a table with junk on it or a close up of the sink. I want to see a wide angle shot from front to back, back to front and all of the slides so I can figure out the floor plan. Pictures with the slides in are practically useless almost as bad as 20 outside shots with maybe 2 or 3 inside. I sold my slide out camper on CL and made $1400 without trying, I posted it for the same amount that it was listed for when I bought it 5 years earlier and got full price but I did deliver it to central Oregon, close to my folks so it was easy for us to deliver.

RE: Hard tonneau covers and 5er hitch

My long bad has a 4 piece unit that folds up and snaps at the front of the bed and we have no problems with it being present

Pickup driver caught after cops find him hauling 53? trailer

Saw this on the web today, anybody else try this? https://cdllife.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/12/79446085_972191509817310_3213476260076322816_o-600x182.png

RE: F150 vs. stupidity

Not sure if this is fake or not, being in the printing industry and having a couple of Adobe suites I'm not sure it was touched, here's another image I found, looks to bend in the same manner; https://www.coloradofans.com/attachments/frame1-jpg.346625/
