RE: Xlr thunderbolt and srw

Not sure what model your looking at or even if you would want my input as you can see I am over my gvwr, but power wise the truck has zero issues and I have yet to have a so called white knuckle experience! Actually this trailer tows better than my previous 32' travel trailer!

RE: Ford superduty inventory ?

Hedgehog..did you check with tasca ford in RI? my last 2 trucks came from there and I had good luck with them. As for the diesel, pushing 90k miles zero issues, I would not hesitate to buy another ford 6.7!

RE: Reactor TH?

not sure about that brand, but if I wasn't certain about my toy fitting I would bring it down to the dealer and try putting it in there before buying.

RE: Replacing Outdoor Speakers

I have a Bose Bluetooth speaker and still use that, great sound and I can put it anywhere in the campsite without having to crank it up and bother others.

RE: EZPASS NH overcharges

now I have to check mine also, was just up north last weekend. Certainly does seem that NH has a lot of toll plaza's on route 16!

RE: New Toy Hauler

I don't want to give you the wrong impression but I would think it should do ok. Just do keep in mind I know the ford 6.7 has quite a bit more power than the earlier versions of the dmax in stock forms. The carbon 327 was one of the lightest that we could find considering its features and as I said we are happy, but I know when it is time to replace the truck I will go drw....for now it is working just fine. My father has a 07 dmax drw and tows a 40' cross terrain, his truck is stock and has never had an issue, I know his trailer is heavier than mine. Also one thing if you do look at the carbon 327 I would consider having them install a second awning over the garage entry door. This weekend we got a lot of rain and found the main awning does a poor job of covering the main entry door.

RE: New Toy Hauler

similar situation I had dealers out on the east claims nobody wants toyhauler so they have very limitied stock. When we were shopping I wanted at least a 12' garage and nothing over 40'. Carbon 327 was the first that we saw that we could both agree on and so far have been happy, although we do miss having a dining table and chairs like our previous trailer had.

RE: New Toy Hauler

I cant vouch for it being a derated 350, im not Ford, but I do know t is very similar. As for how it pulls the 327, I was in the white mountains last weekend and it never missed a beat, the 6.7 diesel has zero issues when it comes to power. I am running air bags to help level it, yes I have band aids on my truck as some would say. Also I think having the length of a crew cab long bed helps with the 38' trailer.

RE: New Nissan Titan half ton

I had a Titan and well it sucked. Towing was horrible and it started Falling Apart at just over 36k I traded it in 4 years old and 38k to a much better and capable Toyota Tundra 5.7. Currently though I have stepped away from camping and pickups That's funny...I bought a Toyota tundra with the 5.7 and it was the worse vehicle I owned, 2 years of misery before I got rid of it. They all have lemons!

RE: 2015 F250

I do and typically use what the manufactures post, this is what bothers me most if you are correct then ford has been posting false info for years.

RE: 2015 F250

SO are you saying that the 250/350 fx4 have 4" blocks under the rear spring pack? Sorry im still not believing the rear axles on the 250/350 are the same, every where i look it shows a shaft difference no mater what year. Lets say you are correct how could ford rate the 350srw to carry an extra 1000lbs that the 250 cant? don't tell me the rear diff cover. I am talking axle rating not spring rating. BTW my 250 has the FX4 pkg and there are no 4" blocks in that spring pack.

RE: 2015 F250

really so my 2008 f350 srw wasn't hydro....wow now i am very confused about things i owned, maybe it wasn't diesel either. BTW the pdf i posted was for 2012 and shows 350 srw being hydro....maybe im not following what your trying to tell me.

RE: 2015 F250

Not sure i need a 450, im pretty sure a 350 will do what i need. As for axles i only see them listed as sterling for 250/350, then dana for 350 drw. Also since we are on this the 20" tires come with a higher load rating @ 3750lb on the srw trucks.

RE: 2015 F250

here is 2012, clearly states 250 having vacuum brakes. https://www.fleet.ford.com/truckBBAS/topics/2012/12_SD_Pickups_SB.pdf

RE: 2015 F250

Here you go, get the facts from Ford. http://www.ford.com/trucks/superduty/specifications/view-all/

RE: 2015 F250

You better get your info from ford from here on out, there is no difference in tires between 250 and 350srw. The f350 has an overload spring which can be ordered on the 250, the 350 has hydro boost brakes and 250 has vacuum. Also the 350 does have a slightly larger dia rear axle shaft with higher spline count. All this info is right one fords website. YEs as for me I am running airbags, my truck is level but i do know i am over my GVWR when towing the new trailer. Am i sweating about it no, i just know my future will have a 350drw in it.

RE: 2015 F250

I see plenty of duallies sagging also, but yes if over loaded a 250 will sag. Im not sure how you guys are getting 20mpg, best I have seen is 17.1 empty on the highway. yes, I own a 250, been a great truck, 90k miles zero issues. However I have said before if I were doing it over again I would hold out for a 350srw. At the time of my truck purchase I had no intention of ever owning a 5th wheel...guess my wife didn't get that memo since some how she talked me into one.
