RE: Guidance on tow vehicle

A TT and a 3/4T gasser is a win/win for you.

RE: Newb looking to buy first TT.

So my wife and I decided to get a TT to take a 4 year old and one year old(possible more) on local camping trips and 2-3 weeks of trips each year. I own a landscape company so I already own a 2500HD so it made sense to go look at TTs. So I have some questions and concerns and will try to address them numerically to keep from being confusing. So here goes: 1. when researching national parks I've noticed most have 30'-35' spots at best. So does that include my truck or just the trailer, and if it is just trailer would it be a big deal to have a trailer that is 35'8"? 2. Do I need a sway bar? I'm looking only at trailers in the 6500-7500lb window and I have a 2015 2500HD LT 6.0 gasoline with many trailer features because I pull a heavy landscape trailer. I seem to have no issues there, but is wind gonna be a big deal? 3. Kind of an opinion but what brands do you like? We have looked at many new ones so far. Our budget is gonna be around 30k, looking for a bunk house type, with outdoor kitchen, a bed for me(6'2"), durability to go across country, and possibly some "kid space". We seem to like Dutchmen aerolites, keystone premier, and Jayco Jayflights. If you think one has a certain feature the other two don't please let me know or if you like a brand not listed let me know also please. 4. Should I get a KOA membership and be done with it? any answers are welcome. Thanks for your time. 1. Depends, in the east this is generally the max length for the camping unit. In Florida separate driveway length is given along with the campsite length. 2. You need more than just a sway bar, an integrated WD/sway control hitch is strongly recommended. 3. This is strictly subjective but don't overlook the actual functionality of the layout. Can you sit on the toilet comfortably to do your business, can you shower without being a contortionist, is waste tank size adequate, can you make the bed without difficulty, is there somewhere for everyone to sit comfortably during bad weather, etc? 4. Waste of money in my opinion.

RE: where to pick up Florida Turnpike from 95 south

I usually jump at Jupiter because it is so close and easy to switch.

RE: 1st Camper- Differences between brands question

Considering the brands listed there is not a lot of difference in materials and fluff (decorative fabrics). Look at overall comfort of using the TT and focus on the chassis. Whichever one has the heaviest rated axles is the way to go. Enjoy

RE: Looking for help on TT decision

It is probably marginal but safe to do with an experienced and careful operator. How well it performs hooked up is completely subjective. A good integrated WD/SC hitch is a must in this situation.

RE: ST tires vs LT tires.

Currently there are two brands of ST tires that get endorsement here in any numbers that would lend credence to their validity. The Maxxis M8008 has been a consistent performer for a number of years, has a 5 year warranty and is made in Thailand. More recently the Carlisle Trail RH/HD has gotten good reviews, I have no idea where they are made.

RE: New Trailer on Order

TT rv'ing can be just as much fun as MH rv'ing and cheaper too.

RE: It's not just FCA

I agree with Don on this one. I've seen it over and over. $100k Escalades flying off the lots, along with $70K pickups. BAM gas hits $3 or more and all hell breaks loose. All the manufacturers will be scurrying around trying to correct, but it will take time. And the oil companies are laughing AGAIN A note about Ford, I'm surprised about this but saw it on the news. With all their flag waving and chest beating I would hope that they thought long and hard about this. Interesting article in Automotive News this week about Kia and some small Mexican town at odds about a plant being built there. Turns out massive concessions were given by a former Mayor of the state that are now being reversed. The new Mayor said no way and good for him. Payoffs still exist in old Mexico in seems. All about the dollar and screw the working man, get's worse all the time. Payoffs in Mexico as a means of "pay to play" pale in comparison to what's going on in the U.S. as we have been learning more each day now. Our economy flounders along at a 1% rate only because of the ineptitude and corruption of our politicians. If our gov't wasn't so corrupt, this likely wouldn't be feasible.

RE: New Tow Vehicle Purchase

I have found that fleet sales typically knows more about trucks than the regular new vehicle salesmen. x2 but since it's my money I make sure I know more than them also

RE: I pad on Dash

I should mention that I currently have 7 displays viewable from my drivers seat. A 20" monitor above the windshield with Delorme Street Atlas, 2 GPS units, a 24" virtual rear view mirror (three 7" screens with side and back looking cameras) and original Toad monitor. I find them useful and not distracting. Unbelievable that you think this is ok

RE: Age of trailer tires?

Maxxis has been the best available ST tire for several years and warrants their tire longer (5 years) than most ST tire makers. 2 years is too old, 6 months would be no issue at all for me.

RE: Picking up new 5th wheel RV trailer 09/17/16

Actually everything you need to know cannot be learned in 5 days. Do as much research on RV systems and PDI's now to make certain you do not get suckered. Also, do not exchange money until completely satisfied that all is as advertised and never rely on a RV dealer to look out for you and you will never be disappointed in them.

RE: Hemi Engines

The makers of chassis' use what is readily available for the right price. BTW, my V-10 makes 362 HP and 457 ft lbs of torque at 3250 rpms.

RE: Charleston visiting Savannah

brirene, can I ask what you did for a week in Charleston? Drabolasky started a good list. Also...city history and architecture, Civil War sites (including Fort Sumter), Sullivan's island, isle of Palms, Folly Beach, Battery Park, great food, beautiful scenery, walkable downtown, gardens; you get the picture! Also agree with James Island suggestion. Entry fee also good at other county parks. The possibilities for things to do in Charleston are many.. One of my favorite places and a great American city.

RE: Which truck would be better for my TT

Neither, F-250 gasoline version would be a better compromise and may not cost any more than the HD optioned F-150. No brainer
