RE: F-250/F-350?

ive read that many times about the spline count on the axles, but there are a few people on here that claim that is incorrect and they use the same shafts, just a different diff cover.

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

kill me no, but in ma is it only that? do they up my excise(road) tax also, my insurance company can only tell me what it will cost if I provide a vin, but claim I wont need added insurance as it isn't for business. It isn't all about the money, but also my time.

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

I have a truck with a gvwr of 10k, I want something with at least 11500 to cover what I am towing just in case the laws change and they do start pulling rv's over.

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

yes my fathers gmc dually he purchased new in 07 has non commercial plates and every year when he pays his $29 for the inspection they comment on it but just put on the sticker and let him go. I am very torn between buying a 350 srw and dually, I know I should be looking at a dually because of the size of my 5th wheel, but I don't want the hassle that a dually is going to cause.

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

thanks everyone, as much as I hate to do it might just skip a dually and buy a 350srw, when I call the registry they direct me to the website. yes it has 5 or more tire and they claim it will be commercial, yet how would they know unless I told them. Im trying to dot eh right thing and buy a truck that will handle my trailer and its future replacement but MA certainly isn't making it easy,

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

wow...please no brand war, they all have issues! Im just trying to determine what I should expect at the registry and state inspection if I buy a dually. The more I read I am thinking I might end up with a 1 ton srw which will just barely be enough gvwr. I guess that is better than being over the tag like I am but I was hoping to buy a truck that would cover any future trailer upgrades. Ma RMV isn't making it easy to decipher their website, I get the feeling they want all dually trucks registered commercial regardless of how they are used.

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

thanks Paul...that's the same page RMV sent me too, but the second statement of "ANY MOTOR VEHICLE WHICH IS NOT A PRIVATE PASSENGER MOTOR VEHICLE" since I am not using it for business, wouldn't it be a private motor vehicle? this is where I questions things. The 5 wheel part I have read yet my father has a dually and it has a regular plate, don't ask because nobody seems to be able to explain how including him. I do know it has been on their since he bought the truck in 2007 and never had an issue.

RE: Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

I have a neighbor who is trooper and he couldn't accurately answer this, the DMV seems to have random answers. Sorry I don't need answers from people on the other side of the country nor do I need o know about what brand of truck I should buy. MA rmv referred me to the website, which is why my questions come up, according to their info even if I buy a 350 srw I will need a commercial plate since its gvwr is over 10k. This is why I ask if anyone from MA whom has a dually can give their experience.

Ma dually pickup owners - reg question?

Ok, so I am looking at buying a dually pickup for personal use and from what I am reading in Ma. I will be required to get a commercial plate. possibly pay about $300 a year for the reg and then a DOT inspection? will I need to provide a medical card also? this will not be registered to a business, but to me personally.

RE: House hookup

I ran a 20amp out to mine, standard plug will run lights but not any of the AC.

RE: 2016 F350 ordering timeframe

I think I would be having a serious talk with that dealer, this is just a lot longer than it should take. Are you sure they ordered it? I know the dealership and sorry I have no confidence in them. I went there a few years ago for DEF and nobody there knew what it was....I haven't been back there since.

RE: Converting a enclosed utility trailer into a TH. Ideas...

Definitely insulate the walls and ceiling! before i bought the toyhauler we started down this road with a 8.5x24 trailer, we slept in it the first time without insulation and it was that much better after spending the time to insulate. In the end we sold the trailer and bought a 5r toyhauler, for us it made more sense, but i will say i miss toying that enclosed trailer!

RE: Truck/trailer weight help

OP...I drive a ford super duty but if i had to make a choice between a f250 with the 5.4 and a ram 2500 with the hemi, well i guess i would be a dodge guy. I honestly think the 5.4 is a good engine, but way underpowered for that truck.

RE: Bumper pull vs. 5th wheel

I went from many years of travel trailers and different sizes to this year a 5er. My previous TT was 32'/8800lbs and towed ok most of the time, the new 5er though is so much better. IM not going to tell you how It tows so well you forget about it because that is BS! I know it is there now it is just a couple feet behind the cab of the truck, but I am getting used to that. It is easier to hook up and being a toy haler I have plenty of room to bring whatever I want, My truck is a long bed so I have plenty of room for firewood. Fuel mileage, improved about .5mpg, maybe my driving attitude has changed now that I see 38' of trailer behind me. In the end I am very happy with the move to the 5th wheel, but also loved out previous trailer....but I am in no rush to go back to a tt.

RE: New diesel shopping

Actually I had owned 2 dodge with Cummins 12v engines, great engine, I cant say anything negative about that. For the right price I would buy one again, I personally feel all 3 have their pluses and minuses. As for being compliant wasn't VW/Audi compliant .....or so some thought.

RE: New 2017 Superduties

Honestly cant say I like the front end better than my 2011. I hope a lot of people run out and trade in their low mileage duallies for 2017 models so I can get a good price on a nice low mileage used one.

RE: New diesel shopping

Here come all the Cummins fans! I would really love to hear about the technological break troughs that dodge/ram/fiat has made that ford and Gm haven't. As someone said drive all and then decide, its your wallet. AS for Ford, my 2011 6.7 just turned 94k miles and has only made one return trip to the dealer for a oil line leak that was a warranty item.

RE: New diesel shopping

honestly I am a ford person but like the new GMC a lot, my father and a few friends have gmc and they've been good trucks. If I had known 4 years ago what I know now I would have bought a 1 ton rather than taking the deal on a 3/4, recently we bought a 5th wheel and now need more gvwr.

At this rate you might have it in time to start plowing that white stuff.
