RE: What kind of deals are out there?

Beginning of year my 5th wheel was broken into and vandalized. To me the RV was worth less than sending to salvage. Wife and I had been discussing options in the year prior. Storage cost exceeded what we thought was its value. There was 17 RV's broken into and vandalized in that one episode. Insurance totaled 5th wheel. I was offered 19K more than what I thought it was worth. RV had been through several blizzards, multiple winters on the Northern Plains, plus a couple of Cat 2 and 3 Hurricanes. Besides being drug from Florida to AZ or Texas to ND and IL as I followed work. I did accept the offer from insurance and they picked it up. Used those funds to buy a 1 year old TC from a gentlemen. He was asking what I received from insurance. He was asking 10K less than what Dealers were showing online. His asking price was in line with KBB yellow book. I feel like I won the lottery. I am not sure when or if purchasing new will be like it was in 2007.

RE: Ford F250 frame hold downs?

I initially tried the Brophy bed mounts. TC is only 2k with fluids. Had quite a bit of movement/walking around bed. Might be the 2500 HD Off road suspencion. Anyway, had emergency stop scenario. New brakes worked great. Truck hopped some. TC was a bit catty wompus in back. Bit the bullet. Ordered Torklift. It does ride differently. Seems to be less bounce. Before I was slowing down to 5, maybe 10 mph at all RR crossing or poor bridge transitions. Still slowing down out of caution, but vehicle bounce and roll feels much less and I no longer cringe. May be because movement is transferred to frame. IDK I am happy with the Torklift. The Brophy tie down will be repurposed to holding storage cylinders for tackle, etc.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Acquired a new to me 2021 Palomino HS-750. Previous owner purchased in Dec 2020. Was selling this one because they acquired a larger Palomino. Started with the Brophy bed tie downs. Installed the Torklift Frame mounted tie downs today. Trying to make time to install the front receiver I have purchased.
