RE: Flat Towing 2018 Ford Expedition Max

helenozee, ugh! Sorry it sounds like a weak dealership and your had a sales person that didn't know his stuff. Seems like the more corporate dealerships buy out the single owners the service and quality goes down. I've not heard good things about our local dealership after it was sold to a corporate group, used to be you knew the owner and he was your neighbor and motivated to do the right thing. Best of luck!

RE: Toy hauler fails

You know what they say, if Momma isn't happy... So here is a possible option. Tandem Tow Dolly http://www.ehamiltonenterprises.com/images/s86.jpg

RE: Flat Towing 2018 Ford Expedition Max

I'd run by the dealership ask the sales guy that told you this and have him get a knowledgeable shop guy to show you exactly what needs to be done.

RE: Mouse Smell In Ducts Over 1 year now - will it sell?

If you really want to get rid of it you need to hire a duct cleaning professional. Just running air through it won't cut it. You need something that pulls the air out and using a duct cleaning brush (google that) you can buy some off of Amazon if you want to try it cheap. You need to find away to get the dried urine out, and that's beyond what I'd know how to do.

RE: Flat tow mini truck Honda Acty Daihatsu Hijet Carry Sambar

Finding any base plates for something like those is probably going to be next to impossible. I'd start searching the sites of BlueOx, RoadMaster and Demco. Probably need to be something custom made. If you really want a truck look to the Ranger or Colorado and see if they are flat tow-able.

RE: Expedition w/Toy Hauler and 2 SeaDoo's

I'm not sure what your wife has against a Motorhome. For us it was perfect for us. I could haul our 4 place ATV trailer, or our boat and our Jeep, or I can take off without anything in tow. Launching the boat isn't for the faint of heart but with my family we have it down to a science. https://i.postimg.cc/xdK2HCPs/IMG-3812.jpg width=800 https://i.postimg.cc/YCLkr8LB/IMG-6673.jpg width=800

RE: 383 Fuzion Touring Edition 11

gbsb did you put down some carpet? The only downside for some To Haulers is it seems like the garage area wasn't very well insulated.

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

Thanks Ken just curious if the bed was usable as it looked high in some of the factory photos but never saw a good comparison.

RE: What 5r (ToyHauler) do you own?

ORbiker, what's it look like inside when the bike in in the basement? Can you still get on the bed or is it up to high?

RE: Camping with Dobermans

Private parks are more likely to have breed restrictions, but you probably know that already. The most common breed restrictions include Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, Mastiffs and Chows.

RE: Goose Neck Adapter

gbsb, no worries on bringing this back up for discussion. It comes up fairly often. You will get some saying they've towed a lot without any problems, but then some will report back about finding damage years later. I'd say most manufacturers void the warranty if a gooseneck is used I think a couple have supported it but I can't recall which ones now. Good explanation by a member, richheck about the physics of the leverage and the fulcrum.

RE: Braking System Recommendation

...He was told the company is out of business ... BlueOx is anything but out of business. They probably discontinued that product for reasons unknown to us. Could be sales numbers or other reasons, when it comes to that type of braking they have a competitor in the market. We’ll never know why the exited it. But BlueOx is a big player in the Recreational towing world plus they have strong presence in the Agriculture and developed a towing line for the US Military.

RE: Oreion Reeper

I ran a search of the archives and found one post, just one. Not much help, but here you go: Post from 2009 Just the fact it was only post and it was from 2009 doesn't give me a very warm fuzzy feeling. Fact that several items on your discovery list would make me look elsewhere.

RE: Glo-Brite Lens 122R

You might be able to find some lenses off of eBay, but they are outrageous pricing. I lost one too, and instead opted to replace my clearance light with some LEDs off of Amazon.

RE: toy haulers stop at weigh stations?

Back when I had my Raptor I would trigger the electronic warning signs for our weigh station in WA State. First I pulled off since the sign had told me to. I was told it measured my height and weight is what triggered the signs and I was on my way after being told I didn't need to stop.

I think you made a good call! Keep up the search.

RE: Disclosure when selling

Disclose it. I've always shared as much info with a private seller as I can, most were new RV owners and didn't know what to ask. I've never had a lemon so no issues. I traded in a Toy Hauler and kept waiting them to ask questions, all they asked was the condition and my honest reply was it's in good condition. I did have a brush with a tree branch, no leaks and I did the repair with EternaBond tape. They called later, after all the papers were signed and said I had failed to disclose the damage. I told them you never asked about any damage, I think they realized they handn't I told them all about it, and that I'd even bought the EternaBond tape from their parts department!
