RE: Meet our new camping dog!

What a sweetheart! Properly trained she will give a lot of wonderful companionship.

RE: Small trailer on F350 flatbed

Redneck engineering at its finest.

RE: Will my truck tow safely in the Smokys?

That trailer will be over 6,000 lb wet if you are married :B Seriously that poor 5.3 is going to protest not to mention the transmission and brakes and mileage will be atrocious. You need more truck or less trailer.

RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

It is really none of our business what the dealer paid, if he/she chooses to share that information and is honest so be it. As others have said there are a lot of costs with running a business and margins are thin, they have to move a lot of product to stay afloat.

RE: Mount “ditch spots” on tow hooks? / legality / clamps?

I have almost driven off the road a few times when oncoming drivers don't turn them off. Here they must be wired into the high beam circuit but there a few idiots who have to show off by leaving them on.

RE: WEN inverter generators on woot.com today only

They are made in China. As with with most things we get what we pay for.

RE: Oregon coast in Sept

Just for info -In end Sept>>>thru October we've traveled the Oregon Coast several times, stayed in State Parks the entire time, and never had a reservation, nor a full campground. We began in Washington traveled all the way to California. We have a 4x4 w/Truck Camper ... but saw plenty of spaces for larger rigs. In fact, we stayed in many campgrounds that were only half full. Just watch out for the weekends. Get a site mid-week, stay until at least Sunday. Oregon Coast drive is incredible --- make a detour up to Crater Lake if you have time. If you stop at the Tillamook Cheese factory, buy a chunk, but buy a chunk of the Fudge tooooooo ... worth it !! Not cheap. The ice cream is worth the trip, it is so good. We also traveled the coast in September and never got turned away.

RE: Dual Fuel Generators

I was a mechanic and had a lot of problems with a dual fuel setup in our forklift. The gas was used as backup to get back to the shop if they ran out of fuel but tended to go stale because of infrequent use. The propane also dried out the carburetor gaskets so gas leaked everywhere when switched over. I finally switched to straight propane, cost was about the same as fixing theold system.

RE: Crazy Parts Prices from Manufacturers

Don't dump on the parts people, they have to follow the rules and go by whatever the computer tells them. Yes, patrs and accessory pricing can be ridiculous. I ran a fleet of light and medium duty trucks, a ten ply pickup tire listed at $245. I paid $156 and the dealer made money, it was obscene. I have met very knowledgable counter persons, others would have trouble tying their shoes.

RE: Traveling to the NW

The only road that warrants special consideration is Going to the Sun in Glacier National Park. Leave the trailer behind and loop back via US2. If you don't like heights it's not a good idea. Otherwise you are good to go, enjoy the trip.

RE: No! I’m not top heavy.

That would earn him a ticket here.

RE: A new way to tow a 5’er!

How would he hook up the utility trailer brakes unless he converted to electric? From the look of that setup there probably aren't any. As Jim n Steph mentioned that would be a real challenge to back up not to mention illegal in most states.

RE: 5th wheel tires

The well known brand name tires with the ST designation should serve you well. Stay away from the cheap brands offered on line, these 'China bombs' will cost you a lot of money and grief. Also make sure the manufacturing date is current, some 'new' tires peddled at a discount will be old stock.

RE: Phoenix to Toronto, May 2020

Would you do better entering Canada at Niagara Falls? 401 is a gong show, I would spend as little time as possible on it.

RE: A redneck Automated Safety Hitch?

Can you imagine backing that into a campsite?

RE: Two Weeks in Canada

Where do you plan to enter Canada? If you are crossing at Oroville there are lots of hiking trails, the old Fairview townsite above Oliver is neat, but be mindful of rattlesnakes. Further north are Penticton and Kelowna with beautiful beaches and great swimming to keep the kids entertained. The Kettle Valley trail is a wonderful walking/cycling route, you will easily fill two weeks.

RE: Class A crash

All he had to do was slow down and wait for the car to go by before trying to change lanes. Driving too aggresively and not paying attention.

RE: It could have went bad!

Back in my youth we were stock car racing on a budget. We towed the car on a heavy trailer designed for farm equipent behind a Chevelle, the trailer brakes if it had any weren't hooked up (no controller in car) and no safety chains. We figured if the trailer left we weren't going with it. One night we returned from a track 75 miles away at around 80 mph. The next morning looking at the car I noticed a weld broken on the hitch, The end of the ball stud and a portion of the nut were ground off from hitting the pavement, we could only imagine the light show that caused.I am amazed we didn't kill ourselves that summer.
