RE: Newbie Pre Purchase Questions

^ ps ive owned it 1 year. was able to pay cash for it. before that was a 1991 prowler 19E which served us for 5 years. also cash. I don't think financing a toy is smart especially when they depreciate like a bat out of hell

RE: Newbie Pre Purchase Questions

sounds like my rig would be about perfect for you. its a 2008 flagstaff Microlite LB. triple stack of bunks with a queen up front. only thing I wish I had was a bit more tank capacity. My f150 handles it well. I have a 3 and a 6 year old, no dogs but we bring bikes and or fire wood. I wouldn't want more trailer with my truck. 1900 lbs payload - 450 lbs family (this will be 600 ish lbs before we trade in) - 100 lbs hitch - 300 lbs wood - 200 lbs bikes =850 850 / .13 = 6538 lbs gvwr. my campers is 4677. leaving me some room to grow. we are happy with the rig https://www.rvusa.com/rv-guide/2008-forest-river-flagstaff-micro-lite-travel-trailer-floorplan-23lb-tr3599

RE: Please help me check my capacity math

RE: Please help me check my capacity math

you aren't allowing yourself enough tongue weight. also be careful of overloading the trailer to save payload.

RE: Please help me check my capacity math

4900 x .13 =637 tongue weight.

first trip of the season

Booked a long weekend for the first week of June. Pinery provincial park. A LOT of ym extended family is going, starting to become a bit of a tradition. I didn't get the best site but I did ok and managed to be grouped in with mostly all family. Very excited. Another month and ill be able to bring the camper home, hopefully get a few weekends in before but the winter slump is showing light at the end of the tunnel. Who all is watching their frozen trailer and champing at the bit.....

RE: Towing 20' camper with Jeep Liberty

I wouldn't touch that setup without a good weight distributing hitch and sway control. the best sway control you can afford given the short wheelbase of the liberty

RE: Need Side Dish Recipes

chili is easy to do in quantities, can be prepped at home too. spinach and artichoke dip is another great one. I make from scratch in the crock pot

RE: Need Side Dish Recipes

what types of main dishes are we trying to pair with. corn on the cob is always a go do for us camping also rice (onion soup miz and minute rice works well fast) garlic bread grilled veggies (asparagus is a favorite) baked potatoes (easy to do in the fire) let us know and ill have a bunch more.

RE: Towing 20' camper with Jeep Liberty

950- weight of everyone and everything in the vehicle - weight of hitch. 950 -100 (hitch) -500 (cargo in jeep, guessing very sorry if im wrong) =350 lbs of tongue weight. 350/0.13 = 2692 lbs fully loaded. if I guessed at numbers right id say you don't have enough payload. do the math with your numbers and remember even empty your trailer will be well above its magical dry weight.

RE: Showing off new vintage retro TT! + Advice on tow vehicle?

That sucks. sorry you got a lemon.

RE: Towing 20' camper with Jeep Liberty

Payload will be your limiting factors by the numbers. I'm guessing depending on how you pack you will be ok. Wheelbase is not what I would want. I pulled my old setup with a grand Cherokee and it was borderline. liberty would have been worst (I owned one) expect the tail to wag the dog.

RE: Towing a 2640lb 16ft TT with a Ford Ranger 4.0L?

beer is liquid bread, therefore eating some beef jerky with a beer before and after is like a sandwich.... perfectly acceptable lunch right?

RE: Towing a 2640lb 16ft TT with a Ford Ranger 4.0L?

^ side note, i dont prefer a stick because its better (this stopped being true a long time ago) I prefer a stick because i like the driving experience better. Nobody would build me a V8 4x4 with a stick (shy of a G wagon or something excessive) so i went auto.

RE: Towing a 2640lb 16ft TT with a Ford Ranger 4.0L?

why do you think the 4.6 and 5.4 v8's are bad motors? they were both proven work horses that could be run forever if taken care of?

RE: Showing off new vintage retro TT! + Advice on tow vehicle?

reliability ratings on a 15 year old vehicle don't mean much for what its worth. after a vehicle is a few years old what becomes way more important is how it was maintained. also whats wrong with a 7.3 for a DD. That's one of the best engines they have ever made and holds its value. also both the 4.6 and 5.4 ford V8s can be great. The biggest deal is the 2 piece spark plugs on the triton older than 2009 and they should already be gone. (if their not change them and the problem goes away) and distributor towers going bad. also cheap and easy fix.
