RE: 22” rims vs 18” rims

Newbie here. Bought a Keystone Outback 40’ and own a 2016 F150 limited with 3.55 rear axle, tow package and 22” rims. Should I buy 18” rims to increase stability and payload? I am pushing my max I think. The more research I do the more I get confused. PLEASE HELP! No reason to be confused. 40 ft. is too much trailer for the F-150. The Limited will have the lowest payload, my guess is about 1,200 lbs. I suggest it is time to step up to a HD series.

RE: Do useless gifts bug you like they bug me?

We managed to convince ours that gift cards, preferably restaurants, are the only gifts we want. We appreciate the thought, but a simple card is nice. I'd rather have a phone call on days like Father's Day. But being full-time, if they buy us something, it means we need to throw something similar away. Eh, I hate gift cards. For the life of me, I do not understand how the population was conned into believing that getting plastic 'loaded' with 100 bucks was somehow a more thoughtful gift than 100 bucks in cash. The nice thing is the cash will spend anywhere, but converting it into a gift card that is only eligible to be spent at one store is just so limiting.

RE: Need tow vehicle - preferably under 10k

So after thinking it over, we are gonna go with a 3/4 truck. Looking at a 2013-2016 either ram 2500 or Ford f250. I'm assuming all of those would be capable of towing our TT with a ProPride hitch. I've run the numbers and we are well within payload, hitch and total towing capacity. Will this type of truck make the drive better? I expect it will be more a more stable tow, it will still move a bit, but shouldn't make you uneasy. My gas F250 has a payload of 3K and is solid going down the road, even without the weight distributing bars installed. But on windy days, I'm glad I install the Sway control and know it is working.

RE: Extended warranty. What are your thoughts

It is all about your tolerance for risk. Extended warranties are simply a form of an insurance policy. Extended warranty companies are businesses, and they intend to make money, which means they must charge you more for the warranty coverage they offer than it will cost them to sell, administer, and pay claims on average. If they don't cover these costs, they will go out of business, and your extended warranty will cease. My thoughts are if an unexpected 2k repair bill will decimate your personal finances buying a new car is probably not the best move. For some, the piece of mind of not being potentially exposed to an unexpected repair bill for a set period of time is worth the up front cost of the warranty. To each their own. Best of luck with your decision.
