RE: Tree Pruning

If you only need it for this 1 job, I would rent a chainsaw.

RE: F550 Upfitting cost estimates?

There is a couple that have a YouTube blog that have had different RVs. They now have a Ram 5500 converted to SRW with a Bigfoot camper. He found the truck already converted from the oil fields in Alaska. They give a thorough review and he’s pretty talented with the systems. Google “Morton’s on the Move”

RE: Small ‘C’. Chev or Godzilla

I’m pretty sure you get the 6 speed trans with the 7.3 in the commercial or RV chassis. With the extra load I don’t think you would ever be in the upper gears anyway.

RE: Small ‘C’. Chev or Godzilla

Thanks for the replies. I’m looking to stay away from the newer diesels for simplicity and the complexity of the newer emissions. I like the fact the Chevy 6.0 has been around a long time and seems to be very reliable. I’ve always heard about the better leg room but since I always drove never really thought about it. However, riding passenger in my Brothers class C I quickly realized the issue. Could not get comfortable on the passenger side. I also just read a post on the Towing forum about some valve train issues and engine replacements with the new 7.3.

Small ‘C’. Chev or Godzilla

I’m in the market for a small class c, preferably a Forest River 23-24’ models. I plan to put in a lot of miles and flat tow a vehicle so power and mpg are important as well as solid reliability. I’ve had the V10 and was happy. I would like the new Ford 7.3 but can get better deals on the Chevy 6.0 which I believe is a solid motor and probably better mpg. I believe both come with. 6 speed trans. What are your thoughts good and bad? Thanks

RE: Honda generator to truck camper

A little off topic but does anyone know of a generator like the Honda 2000 that is diesel powered?

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

A lot of good info by other members so I won’t repeat it. If you don’t want to remove the lift I would focus on the tires. If you have a large soft sidewall tire like a C or D rated you can improve your setup. I would go back to stock size (275 or 285 /70/17) on the factory wheel or equivalent. You can also get some better tires with a stiff sidewall and way more capacity than many big tires used on lifted trucks. The right tire will make a HUGE difference in stability. Good luck.

RE: Hardside TC for 3900 pound payload shortbed

I had a Lance 865 on a 17 Ram 3500 and it was a good fit. For a little more room and amenities look for a Lance 855. It’s a little harder to find than the 855s (slide) but should be a good fit.
