RE: NorCal Mini Truck Camper Rally - April 2023

See you there! We really enjoyed our time last year-

RE: Where to get three nights of peaceful RV time?

We run away to Ocean Cove just north of Timber Cove Lodge. No hook-ups but some beautiful ocean bluffs to walk on and a nice restaurant across the highway ( 2 lane) with views of the ocean. Closes up for the winter, first come- first serve.

RE: Towing 4-wheels down.....braking required for vehicle?

Have the Blue Ox base plate with the NSA Ready Brute and surge brake system on a 17 2 door Rubicon. To answer the electrical question, we use the magnetic stop-tail lights from e-trailer that eliminated all wiring to the Jeep. It can eat batteries (6-AAA batteries each) but no wiring! I have a small cargo rack over the spare tire that I also velcro strap these lights to ensure they stay put. Love them-

RE: Tie Down Angle Best Practice

I know straight down is the least preferred as it can allow a pendulum type movement. I'm sure others will respond but looking at any side of your truck, a 2:00 to 6:00 position in the front with a 10:00 to 6:00 in the back would snug things down fine.

RE: got a new camper

Nice looking camper! Where is your first outing going to be? Just read the news and you might have Temps in the 110 range next week!

RE: Happijack Swing Out Bolt Removal?

If it's a carriage type bolt and you can turn a few threads, can you tap the bolt outward until it is stopped by the nut or washer and nut? That will give you some more surface area in which to apply another wrench ( clamping jaw type) to keep it from turning. Even 1/8" can make a difference since your biting into the edges and not the domed top.

RE: Looking for recommendations on a two bike rack

You can find assorted drops for hitch heights. I inverted a 6" drop I had to a 6" rise that fit our Jeep better

RE: Looking for recommendations on a two bike rack

He's asking to transport 2 bicycles outside the camper, not storage. There are many types of carriers that utilize different anchor points. Let's help him out-

RE: Looking for recommendations on a two bike rack

We have a Thule T2 Pro XTR that fits a 2" receiver. We have a Torklift 48" hitch extension and it clears the rear slide even when extended ( barely). You need to consider the width of your tires for some models and also weight. I believe my rack will also carry most E- bikes, something we never considered.

RE: I met Ramblin Ralph today

Had a similar experience when we had the 5th wheel. Just inside the Marin County side of the Sonoma County coast, Dillon Beach was a sort of Woodstock affair. Just pay and park it! Recognized a trailer and Expedition from a signature here while out for a walk. They be ame great friends! Ralph has to be a super interesting guy!

RE: Insurance and RAM 5500

This might not apply to your truck now. But most likely it was shipped and sold as an incomplete vehicle. My insurance company knows the value of my custom service body plus the trucks value. It's obviously insured for the sum of both.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

Went into town last night to get a pizza and noted the price of diesel at our only station. Today it was at $7.19. A 15 cent jump in 18 hrs. Might need to pack soon and leave while we can still afford it!

RE: A Little Help With Weights

I think your camper is going to push +/- 5500 lbs ready to travel. Payload is indeed published and most people with the bigger campers identify the components (axle, wheels, tires etc) as well as test drive the unit to better gauge if suspension upgrades might be needed.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

We're still doing the western states swing. Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Home. Home prices set the bar high. Looking forward to sub $6.00 diesel

RE: Where to Stay in Mammoth, CA?

Silver lake resort checks all the boxes. We typically camp across the road which lacks hook ups but is close to the lake. It's pretty rare not to have at least one of your days with lots of wind. Beautiful sun rises on the mountain slopes!

RE: Ram 5500 with Flatbed and Torklift Super Hitch question

This might be of no help to you because I have a utility body. This is a 60" CA 2015 Ram 5500 with a 9' body.https://i.imgur.com/kdZmSTAl.jpg You might be restricted to an " off the shelf" flat bed that is already set up with mounting brackets. PM me if you think I can provide other pictures and I'll send them to your email. I sent the hitch to the builder and also discussed the step bumper so it could all be considered during pre-fab.

RE: In 2 years time I can no longer afford to buy a camper

Or the newly coined phrase " dynamic pricing" which is meant to overcharge with a smile-

RE: Water leak, we cannot find.

Check out HappilyeverHanks on YouTube. There is too much to just be a coincidence. Same 5th as you, not sure the year. They posted their problem not to long ago-
