RE: Cooper AT3 XLT

I run Coopers on both my F350 landscape trucks. I think the AT3 XLTs are the best tire I've ever run. I have ATPs on my other F350 but the AT3 XLTs are even better. Got them from Discount Tire. They're E rated 285-65-18s. Excellent traction in everything from snow, mud, rain, to dry. I've had BFGs, Good Years, Falkens, Nexens, and probably a few others. But I hope Cooper never stops making these.

RE: Ins and outs of DNA testing

My sister did Ancestry awhile back. Then about four months ago, she got a match and we found out our mother has a half-sister we never knew. The half-sister and my mom did the more extensive DNA test locally and it was over a 99% probability they had the same father. It was a fun Christmas at Mom's this year with a new aunt and new cousins we never knew existed.

RE: How to see grand canyon

What a great thread. We plan to do something very similar after I retire November 2026. The Grand Canyon is my number 1 priority destination. From NC, we hope to also do one big circle of the USA. Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Mt Rushmore, Niagara, Florida Keys, etc.

RE: anyone seen one of these in person?

That pic from Jackathan makes sense for this contraption. But other than that, anyone using this for the so called stability most likely doesn't have his WD hitch set-up properly. My non-professional guess is that probably 80%-90% of all WD hitches I see (on the road or at a campground) does not have their WD hitch set-up correctly. We all have opinions. I have had three TTs and two 44' fifth wheels and all my TTs pulled just as stable as my fifth wheels. But my Equalizers were set-up like they should and towing with them was a breeze.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

I have two 6.2Ls right now for my lawn maintenance business. I regularly tow 6000 lbs but the most I've pulled with them is around 10,000 lbs back when we had a Work & Play. I think you'll be good since you say you're only towing one or two trips a year. Any more than that and I would get the 7.3 at a minimum. If you do end up getting the 6.2 and it has the six speed, just lock out 6th gear on those trips. You'll be fine but don't pull out in front of traffic in a rush.

RE: Toy Haulers Under 12' Tall?

I think our old Work & Play was under 12'. I'm talking the older version that looks like a big enclosed trailer.

RE: Rotella T6 5w-40 hard to find

I use T6 in my tractors. I always order from WalMart and it's delivered to my front door.

RE: Tampa RV Show

Thanks to all for your help. I just booked a room at the LaQuinta right across the street from the fairgrounds. Looking forward to it.

Tampa RV Show

It's been a long time since that family from Va. Beach bought my F450, toy hauler, and even the golf cart. That was early 2019. Seems like decades ago. But now my youngest will be moving out soon and we're in the early early stages of looking for our next truck and camper. With demand still pretty high, it sure seems like prices ain't what they used to be. Not to mention finding a new F450 is like finding a rare gem. We'll have to just wait and see how 2022 starts out but it doesn't hurt to just look and get ideas. I saw the Tampa RV Show is January 19-23. I have a few questions for those who know. 1. Is this show what it's hyped up to be? We're only looking for toy hauler fifth wheels. No Class As or Cs. I can't do the Hershey Pa show because being a landscaper, I'm just too busy in September. My wife and I will drive down from NC on Thursday and head back home that Sunday. That's a long way for a disappointment of a show. 2. We'll only have two days to look at campers. At the Raleigh RV Show, two hours is more than enough. But I remember someone saying one time you need three days to check out all the stuff at Hershey. Just curious if two days is adequate for Tampa. I'm even hoping Luxe does their thing where they set up somewhere off site.
