RE: Chevy 1500HD vs. 2500

A pop up small trailer vs a nice TT with lots of room and amenities. That’s the difference between the two trucks.

Video of why 1/2 tons shouldn’t tow 5th wheels

Video clicky

RE: new TT what do you change first if anything?

If I have the spare money the first thing I do is swap out the tires to a better quality set. You can still sell the take off tires as long as they are new to recoup some of the money spent. This! Manufacturers go with the lowest bid on tires and then get your money again when you have a blow out and there’s fender damage. Higher rated load range tires will give you peace of mind.

RE: Purchasing a truck camper dilemma

It wouldn’t cost much to add another leaf spring to your rear axles.

RE: 1/2 Ton Towable 5th Wheel

3) We have a 2018 Ford F-150 3.5L Ecoboost truck SPECIAL ORDERED (i.e. NOT off a dealer's lot) with max towing and heavy-duty payload packages. Payload capacity of just over 2500 lbs.. There you have it; it can be done if you change your half ton truck into a 3/4 ton truck.

RE: Have I Made A Mistake.....

I doubt you can return the TT; the bank owns it if you financed it. And, if you financed it, look at the fine print; you may get your money back for the service plan at the BACK end of the loan and not an immediate refund. (Ask how I know...) Keep the pressure on and document all your'e doing because every day you don't cancel is more money in their pocket. Good luck

RE: 1/2 Ton Towable 5th Wheel

Can a 1/2 ton truck pull a 5th wheel-sure. Will the towing be safe and comfortable-no. You will find times that the trailer will wag the truck. I found out the hard way that it is not a fun trip worrying about every car and truck passing you where you have to pull your rig back into your lane. Every wind over 15mph will push you as well. So, yes you can do it but you won't like it. Get the right tool for the job and it makes your life easier.

RE: Unloading and camper support

I use 2x4’s and sawhorse brackets. And a 3/4” plywood from my truck bed then set the camper on them.

RE: Rear view cameras - wired or wireless?

The wireless system is well respected on this forum and has good reviews. Typically wired systems are cheaper and better quality but the one you linked is expensive and has only one review and isn’t even a good review. And it’s not even a name brand. Take a look at Amazon wired systems and their reviews if you want to save money for a better wired system. I don’t have a wireless camera but from my research Furion is the only wireless system to get. Otherwise go wired and save some money.

RE: New Tires For A Brand New Trailer

I’ve only gotten maybe two years off new tires on new trailers. Manufacturers get their tires from the lowest bid; you think they are quality!? I’ve had a blowout on a one year tire and the other two of four were separated. That’s when I upgraded to higher rated tires. You really can’t go wrong with higher quality tires replacing the cheaper ones. Even if you check them at each stop and have a TPMS you’re still at the mercy of those manufacturer tires.

RE: Pierre, SD campgrounds?

Farm Island State Rec park is nice but only has electric. You have to use your own water supply. River View RV Park is nice but way up on a hill; it has full hookups and the wind can really blow up on that hill. The other park I'd recommend is Ohae Downstream State Rec Park; I think it is only water and electric but not sure. Good luck

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

I agree with the OP. They want to give law abiding citizens a hard time but allow hundreds of thousands of illegals on the southern border go without knowing anything about them. Typically law enforcement (I was for 26yrs) get credible information through informants or other law enforcement agencies so they adjust their tactics accordingly. They don't normally want to waste someone's time just for no reason. Piss them off, and yea, they can find a legitimate reason to search your stuff; but normally they don't want to work any harder than is necessary. Peace officers actually appreciate law abiding citizens; when they're nice. Be police, do what they say, and you shouldn't have any problems.

RE: Sway Control

Sway bars will help but your'e pulling a 17' TT with a Chevy Colorado. Any light truck pulling a TT will be like the tail wagging the dog. Do what you can but short of getting a bigger truck (the right tool) you will be trying to play catch up. It won't be as comfortable as pulling it with a heavier truck. It's just the nature of the beast. Good luck

RE: Thoughts: 6.5' bed v. 8' bed

I’ve had both and love the 8’ bed now. Just as easy to drive but better towing as it’s a bit smoother on the highway

RE: Proper Protocol for “Complimentary Roof Inspection”

If the shop is close I would take it back and insist they fix the damage they caused. Why suggest the OP go back to the same place that tried to rip him off? YouTube how to fix it yourself and it’s done cheaper and correctly!

RE: Proper Protocol for “Complimentary Roof Inspection”

There’s no complementary, it’s just like a car dealership doing a “free 38 point inspection”; it’s a chance to find something to repair and charge you. They WILL find something and like you suspect, they’ll even make sure you have damage so they can get your money. Buy some Dicor lap sealant and do the easy job yourself-$12.00 Learn to do all your maintenance yourself and you’ll be a much happier camper!

RE: Question on Truck Campers

Where the heck do y’all camp where you’re afraid!? Rain might be the only reason for a pass through but an umbrella or raincoat would solve that. There’s a whole lot of other reasons to look at TC or class C thank being scared.
