RE: Class B camper Van

Had a Pleasure Way Excel...loved it. 20/20 hindsight is great. Wish I had it now. The only thing I had to deal with was a 10 gal black tank and pull-valve was very close to the ground. Other than that one issue, it was fantastic. Traded that and a Class A on one Class C to cut costs and maintenance. Wrong! My wife and I also had a Pleasure-Way Excel. Very well-built, and very nicely finished. We used it as a day traveler and it never gave us a moment's problem. Consistent 15-16 mpg as well, which was nice. Prior to purchasing it, we looked extensively at other B's, and found the PW to be our best choice. Surprisingly enough, the one that seemed the poorest quality build was the Airstream Interstate. What engine did your Pleasure-Way have?

RE: Over weight? Does it bother you?

It is my understanding that no matter what you do to your truck, including tires, suspension etc. you can not change the stated GVWD of the truck, and if you were involved in an accident you could be held liable. I do not have a camper now but have had 5 in the past, and have always been careful to stay under my GVWR. Personally I would never take the chance.

RE: Help. Will This Work?

I had a 8'11" and a 8'9" on my f350 shortbox. In both cases the centre of gravity was clearly marked and was on or in front of the truck axle. They both had north/south beds which would bring the weight further forward than an East/west bed. If the centre of gravity is not marked you will face to be careful. Good luck.

Different kind of Jack-knife

https://i.imgur.com/tw8Aiakl.jpg I did this a few days ago. I was making a sharp left turn out of a narrow driveway onto the highway and the wheels of my fiver went down the ditch resulting in the bed area twisting and digging into the side of the truck bed. Very little damage to the 5th wheel.

RE: Short Beds w/out Sliding Hitch

You very rarely need to use it, but when you do.....
