Autosocks (chain replacements) Experience

I have been carrying a set of Autosocks for 7+ years now in case I needed to ”chain up” and to satisfy the requirements of carrying chains on some passes. Since they weigh so little and take up so little space I just keep them in the truck all the time. Up to now I have never had to use them. We are in a 7,000 mile trip heading home and stopped at a Harvest Host farm in the California Mountains. The day before we arrived they had a lot of snow dumped on them (California 58 was closed) but when we arrived it was sunny and 40 degrees. The long driveway was covered in snow with a cow path from a few vehicles. We had no problem with our F350 DRW carrying an AF1150 making it through the snow to our parking place. That night it rained a little and then the temperature dipped to 20 degrees. By morning it had risen to 33 degrees. Not surprisingly the driveway out was very icy and when I went to check it out I had trouble walking on it, especially the long uphill segment. I was very concerned if I could make it up even in 4 wheel low gear. I decided to put on the Autosocks on the outer rears, Having used chains before I was pleasantly shocked at how easy they went on. I put it in 4 wheel low and we just drove up the driveway without any slippage. It was trivial to take them off and I shook them off and put them in the floor of the camper to dry off while we drove. Later I put them back in their bag. I don’t know, I suppose I could have made it up the hill without them, but I don’t think so, certainly not without some slippage. Given their small size and how impressed I was with them and their ease of use I am going to buy another pair for the front tires.

RE: Truck camper trade-in at dealer question.

Probably a bit dealer dependent. We ordered out new camper in February 20. We also negotiated a pretty fair price for our trade in (subject to inspection). It wasn’t the full retail value but probably 80% of what I could have got selling it myself without the hassle of doing it myself and saving me the 10% sales tax on the new one. COVID hit and the new camper didn’t come out until the end of September. We used the old camper for extensive travel over the summer. When it was time to pick up the new one the dealer inspected the old camper and gave us what they promised. They said they probably wouldn’t make much on it but they were going to honor the deal.

RE: What is the best safe for a TC?

As an alternative consider a “console vault” for your truck. These provide pretty good security and the one we installed was very easy to put in. Just google “console vault” for options

RE: Wet bath in Dry bath sized camper ideas

Northwood does this. Compare a dry bath 1150 or 1140 to the wet bath version.

RE: How many have had Thanksgiving in a truck camper?

Every year for the past 6 we have camped over Thanksgiving. On Tuesday we make some fixings, buy some, and get a section of cooked Turkey from the local grocery store. This year we had: Delicata squash, garlic mash potatoes, rutabagas, sweet potato and carrot purée (with butter and creme fraiche), stuffing, roasted Brussels sprouts, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, chocolate cake, and of course turkey. Headed out Wednesday and had a great Thanksgiving again (Ft. Casey state park in WA) https://i.imgur.com/ChvLMyfl.jpg
