trailer lift kit

I'm interested in the 30 ft 1/2 ton tow-able 5th wheel from Grand Design's Reflection brand. Problem is the trailer sits too low for my standard 2019 Ram 2500 4x4 short bed truck. MORryde has a suspension kit (SRE 4000) that I believe raises the axles two inches. Larger rims would raise it up an additional inch, giving me a total of three inches which might be enough without compromising the overhang with the bed rails. Anyone have the same problem and how did you resolve it? Thanks.

RE: Hitch requirements

It's a 29' Imagine, by Grand design.

Hitch requirements

I have a 2019 Ram 2500 diesel. The trailer I want to buy is 6,000 unloaded. I decided on an equalizer hitch with sway control. Do I need two sway bars, one for each side, or is one sufficient.

RE: Looking For a Second 5th Wheel

Grand design, better quality control, better materials, better warranty and good follow up.

RE: What is wrong sir?

its a good deal if you only want to fix it up for a cabin in the woods.

RE: 5th wheel hitches

Companion. Easy to hook up and no chucking.

RE: Electric Fire Places

Works great. It saves propane. Because the bedroom is usually up front and higher than the rest of the trailer (heat rises) the bedroom stays warm.

riding nose high

I'm looking into getting a Grand design Reflection: 150 Series 260RD. My truck is a 2018 Ram 2500 4x4 with the diesel. Presently I own a Keystone Sprinter. It rides nose high, which puts a lot of strain on the back axle which will probably wear out the bearings prematurely. I'd like to reach out to someone with a similar setup and whether or not the truck-trailer rides level?

RE: Ram too high?

(I started out pulling my GD 303RLS with a 2017 Ram 2500 4X4 with a B&W Companion hitch) That trailer is a full sized unit and not the same as a 1/2 ton towable. I would be too close to my GVWR with that hitch weight. The rims on a 1/2 ton towable is 14 inches and overall height different as well.

RE: downsizing for the winter

They have the option in this floor plan to have the dinette instead of the recliners. I have trouble sitting upright with my arthritic back, so a recliner is as must, especially when watching a long movie.

downsizing for the winter

We bought a 2018 2500 quadcab Ram diesel this past summer. Found out later it can only carry 2200 lbs, far less than our total GVWR allows. I also discovered that our present 34 ft 5th wheel is too large for National Forest and general touring, and would like to downsize to a 25 ft Imagine XLS 22RBE. I've had larger 5th wheels (37 with four slides) and find them to be too cumbersome except for long term stays. For the winter, I prefer moving around and exploring rather than to sit in one spot for six months. Are there any snow birds out there with small trailers and how is it working for you. By the way, my favorite all around trailer was a 23 ft'er we once had, but a little too small for our present needs.

RE: Yet another what can I tow question

Stick with a travel trailer around 25 ft, especially in the west with its high elevations.

RE: Larger 5th wheels in/on state and federal parks

We got into a lot of trouble hitting national parks in the Northwest with our 34ft 5th wheel. Save yourself a lot of trouble and headaches by settling with something under 30 ft with a good floor plan you like.

RE: Good Campgrounds in west Texas off I-20

If you could stretch it to El Paso, Mission RV Park is a nice stopover for 35$ and all pull throughs. Flying J at exit.

RE: Anyone have a 2018 Keystone Cougar 29 series 5er?

I towed a cougar half ton with a 2014 2500 ram 2x4 and was nose high by a large margin. My back wheel broke away in Biloxi Ms taking the sheared hub with it. We were lucky it happened in town. We ended up stuck there for a week while awaiting parts. The back axle, apparently, was carrying too much weight causing the bearings to fail and they had been re-greased only six months prior to this incident.

diesel rebate

Back when I bought my first diesel truck in 1994, I received a government rebate of around $1500. I recently purchased a 2018 new. Is there still a rebate for diesel that I'm not aware of?

how do you keep sewer tank clear

What is the best way to keep the sewer tank from sludging up and valves working. I don't like using chemical additives, especially the ones with formaldehyde. Heard it was good to add a little olive oil or liquid detergent into the tank when empty.

ram 2500 and 3500

What is the actual difference between the Ram 2500 and 3500 single wheel pickups besides leaf springs and coil. Are the bearings and brakes the same if both have 18 inch rims?
