The vaccine lowers the chance of dying and getting extremely sick from covid. Even with the vaccine you can still get covid, carry it and spread it. With a 98% recovery rate I see no need to get vaccinated. Wow.

RE: Center of gravity

By the numbers, no. Your 6.5ft bed is a short bed. The camper you are looking at, Eagle Cap 950 is in the long bed range. Anything over 900 will be designated LB. It is not something I would do, my 890 barely fits on my GMC short bed.

RE: How fast do you drive with camper on? .

I am comfortable at 60 to 65 no matter what everyone else is doing. Wet weather a little less.

RE: Love my truck and camper.

Your truck will look good with those tires and wheels on it. They will be my choice in a while after I see how my Michelins do.

What a sweet rig! I bet you guys have a blast out there...

RE: Delays in camper buiddate

I had a three week delay getting my WC due to an AC shortage. Coleman was backed up because of the afore mentioned issues. Then getting the truck ready...I obviously should have done that first as truck parts are all backordered too. Because of my lack of planning, it was almost three months before I was ready.

RE: Another noobie question.

After reading all this I'll run with the LP on to the fridge. It doesn't seem to be the hazard it was before with the newer tanks and valving. Appreciate the opinions.

Another noobie question.

I read some threads in the " beginning RV" dept. about traveling with the propane on to the fridge. Most of the entries are 15 years old. I respect the knowledge and opinions expressed here. I know there are differing opinions on this subject. So do you leave the LP on while traveling? I know to shut it off before fueling, but on these hot days if I open the fridge once it takes hours to get real cold again. Turning off the gas I might as well pack an ice chest and use the fridge for storage. Apologies if this is like the TP thread...rehashed to death...

Interesting. Thanks guys.

Toilet Tissue...

Back when I got my first camper (3months ago) everybody told me I had to use RV tp. You guys that have been around the block a few times adhere to this? I did the test where you soak the tp in water and RV tp definitely dissolves lots faster than, say, Scott brand does. So am I over thinking this?

RE: Airbags.

You're going to need something, be it bags or the newer Sumo or Timbren bump stop systems. Some get bigger springs. With my short bed I ended up with Timbren SES because I didn't want to wait on bags. So far I like it but have not gone far yet.

RE: Love my truck and camper.

specta that is impressive indeed. I wish I could say I got near the mileage but I can't.

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

Yesterday I removed the B&W turnover ball hitch that was dead weight, comes in around 90lbs. No brainer. Next I pulled the stall mat out and survived. These things are 100lbs and will put a whoppin on you if you're not careful. I do have a mat coming from Realtruck, a Gator that is only 5/16 thick and supposed to fit real nice. And I was able to get the toolbox weight down a whole bunch too so the situation improves...

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

Using my camper in my driveway and getting to know the different systems, I have filled and dumped the grey tank twice. Nice down hill run to the flower/succulent garden. I found out I could squeeze out four showers out the 30 gallon tank. I was hoping to get five...

Well well... 33x12.5R 18. Seems to be the ticket. Will probably ride like a straight axle 80s Blazer.

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

ticki2 yes Toyo has a press release out talking about it, but so far the local Toyo dealers I have talked to have not seen it. None of them were even aware of the press release. I'll be calling the factory on Monday to get more info.

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

Appreciate all the input guys! Tires are Michelin Defender one year old. E rated. But 3525lbs is as good as it gets in my size 18" wheel. I drove truck for years that at times were overloaded, always watched the equipment of course, but the weak point was always the tires. As Buzzcut did, so may I.
