RE: New Titan tank

^Just kidding! Totally. Someone is bound to say that, though. Happens every time. Figured I'd just gt it out there before someone who actually thinks it's not a good upgrade speaks up. Congrats, ALL big pickups should come with big fuel tanks. You're right someone would've sooner or later. I've had my 50 gal in bed tank since 03. In the current truck that's 84 gals total which gives me quite a range. I've never understood the argument that it costs so much to fill. You're going to buy so many gals of fuel it's a matter of how many times you need to fill

RE: Extended tow bar

40 yrs ago when I was showing horses I had a 10 1/2' truck camper and pulled a 4 horse trailer. I had a 40" removable extension for the trailer tongue, it worked great. Sorry I don't have any pictures after all this time that show it

RE: Are 16" tires still common? South america.. And disk brakes

The tires.. I have a old chevy farm truck with numerous problems with almost new 16" Michelin tires I want to swap to my dodge diesel.. And also the fact I want to run eight identical tires all around and trailer rims don't come in 17". Thanks! Fist thing to check is the bolt pattern. I know you said they are both 8 lug but is the Dodge 6 1/2" pattern like the Chevy or is your Dodge newer with the metric pattern?

RE: Distant Drums in Camp Verde

We're staying a month and Dead Horse is 14 day limit. This will be our first time RVing in the area before we had a timeshare in Sedona that we have since gotten rid of. We've been going there since 99. For anyone who thinks a month might be too long it won't be our first time spending a month in the area. We especially enjoy all the hiking trails in the area and look forward to finding new ones around Camp Verde plus hiking our favorites around Sedona. Using Sedona as a base we've seen Grand Canyon, Canyon DeChelly, Quartzsite, Lake Havasu, Verde River train ride, Prescott and eating at The Palace, and Jerome. We're not newbees to the general area but certainly welcome suggestions

Distant Drums in Camp Verde

Thinking of making reservations here. Has anyone here stayed there and if so what was your experience?

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

I tell people I take after my maternal grandfather. He was a bus driver and when he went on vacation it was to see his son in L.A. In the 50's grandpa would drive his 49 Studebaker from Kalamazoo Mi. to L.A. on old Rt. 66 in 3 days. Grandma always complained that he never stopped just drove. LOL Grandpa was not a slow Sunday kind of driver

RE: How long do you drive/tow in a day?

IMHO a lot depends on the vehicles comfort and capability, the drivers experience/confidence. Is the drive a white knuckle thing or a relaxed and enjoyable drive. A very capable vehicle vs a underpowered over loaded vehicle is night and day difference for pleasurable travel. Longest single day travel pulling about 750 mi longest no pulling just over 1200 and 19 hrs. That 1200 mi run I was 65 and traveling alone. I'm now 77

RE: Will it be difficult to find a reliable 5er on a 20K budget

I price expecting to negotiate, it's part of buying and selling. Maybe it's just me but if a buyer doesn't attempt to negotiate sometimes I figure I made a mistake and should have priced it higher

RE: And so it begins. (In North America).

MattEd and I were talking about this yesterday. In our rural neighborhood in Michigan, if my neighbor turns on his table saw, my lights dim. We are praying that none of our neighbors goes electric, because their one vehicle will probably make the rest of us haul out the kerosene lamps.... The infrastructure is NOT in place for a bunch of kilowatt gobblers. You need to talk to someone at you electric provider. They need to put a transformer at his place. Back when I was on the farm that was done at my place so when I was welding it didn't draw the neighbors down

RE: Will it be difficult to find a reliable 5er on a 20K budget

As an adjunct, if a potential buyer wanted to hook up my fifth wheel and tow it to an RV dealer for an inspection I would tell them no. The effect for that type of action would be to talk me down on my price, and impart a huge inconvenience on me, plus take the trailer off the market for a while, let alone liability issues. I would sell it to the next person with the ability to inspect it himself on site and recognize the value that it is. Not worth it for a $20k sale. I couldn't agree more. If I have something for sale it's not leaving here until paid in full. You can inspect it all you want HERE. Also when looking if you're serious carry a substantial amount of cash for at least a deposit. A stack of $100 bills in sight can help in negotiations. Be ready to buy while there if it's what you want. The last 2 I bought, from individuals, took a couple hours or better. Checking it over and negotiating can take a while. A few years ago I was about a 100 mi from home looking at one. Made the deal, paid them and waited for them to unload all their personal items then pulled it home. If you see it and want it don't hesitate buy it. Used trailers are like used cars, no two are the same

RE: Oregon Coast Camping

We were in Oregon in June 19. Bullards Beach State Park across the river from Bandon was nice. We also stayed at Sea & Sand RV Park a private park which was nice also, it's north of Depoe Bay. The next place on the ocean was Cape Disappointment in Washinton just over the Columbia River

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

My comment on the environment was about the leaves and grass. You use a large piece of cardboard and that works also. Yes I have a garage, in fact I have two, the house garage and my shop which is 32'X 36'. That's where I keep my hot rods. But I don't have covered storage for the 5er

RE: Excellent video on brake repacking

I sure wouldn't be doing that job in that environment, I'd be working on concrete Well some of us don't have a concrete pad, you know Rural America? I do use a much larger piece of cardboard under the wheel tho. Yes I know rural America. I live in it on 15 acres of woods. Before this I lived on a farm on a gravel road I do work like that on the concrete apron of the garage

RE: South Lake Michigan

I would guess you haven't visited our beaches in late May or June. You will find lots of swimmers. Maybe your thinking of Lake Superior Used to keep our boat on Lake Muskegon. Unless you are doing the polar bear plunge, not many swimming on the big lake that early. Heck of lot of people don't even launch their boats until the end of May. I guess you must be from a warmer more southern area of the country. We used to skip school in the spring to go to the lake and swim. Heck there were fishing boats on Muskegon Lake in January this year
