RE: Fuel mileage

...and to the OP gas prices don't have much to do with who's in DC. It's more about what state you're in. So long as you don't come to California you'll be fine

RE: Newer 5ers, Slider Hitch Required For Short Beds?

Ram short bed and an Andersen ultimate hitch over a B&W turn over ball and your worries are over. I have jacked pretty hard at times and never come close to the cab. Just ordered the Andersen. Went with the standard rail kit though.

RE: Opinions on Grand Design Fifth Wheels

We own a 2020 Reflection 337. Bought Sept. 2019 and no real problems. YMMV. Thanks for the info. We're looking at the Solitude 310GK.

RE: Newer 5ers, Slider Hitch Required For Short Beds?

Gonna go with the Superglide auto slider I hope you did your homework on the Superglide, and the limitations on hitching ,unhitching . Had a friend grow tired of it after couple years ,and got rid of it ,that and the weight to deal with. Hopefully you are aware of all this, they are not cheap . I've used the hitch before with no problems. Two friends have the hitch with no problems. I'm familiar with the Superglide

RE: Montana Fifth Wheel

A little write up in the RV magazine rating the Montana Fifth Wheels in the top eight for cold weather camping . I never felt my previous 2008 Montana was very good in sub freezing weather. Apparently they have improved with their Arctic package. Having owned a Montana previously, and taking into account my brother has a 2019 Montana High Country, they have improved nothing. Its all a load of BS just the same as the spew Keystone puts in their brochures and on their website. RV magazine is owned by Camping World, Camping World is a Keystone dealer. Not hard to figure out. A Montana is simply an upgraded Keystone Cougar imo.

RE: Anyone Installed a Bigger TV?

WHat size is OEM TV? What size are you wanting to replace it with? Many TVs use same mounting And many of the new TVs are very light weight. We had a 25" analog HEAVY TV in a cabinet. Took it out...made a cabinet door (huge storage area) I installed a 32" Vizio on the face of cabinet door That was in 2008 and still works mounting issues etc Check out the weight on the TV you want to use....not real heavy so doubt if you would have to do anything but swap TVs Sound bars are not heavy items either....if mounting holes don't line uup with any wall 'studs' just use 'toggle bolts' X2 You might be able to go to the same mount

RE: Battery origin

The Walmart Everstart battery I put in the wife's Chevy Traverse about 5 years ago is one of the best batteries I ever bought. Go for it

RE: Opinions on Grand Design Fifth Wheels

As a 6 year owner of one and a frequent RV show attendee, my opinion is that GD charges a premium price for a rig not built or outfitted with any better appliances/components then Keystone, Jayco, or any of the rest in the $40-$60 thousand price range. Two things happened to GD that to me that diminished the quality; they got too big too fast and they got bought out by Winnebago. The GD faithful will vehemently dispute that but around 2017 when sales really took off and the original 3 owners of GD sold out(one stayed on) the complaints about quality really started to increase. If I were looking again, I'd base my criteria first on floor plan/livability and then on price comparison. If a Jayco or Cougar has a similar floor plan and was cheaper, that's where I'd go. Exactly, and thats coming from a two time owner. The first made early in the first year of production which was not bad at all, the second made early in 2019 which was a total piece of garbage. Grand Design started using more Lippert garbage than anyone else which is a hard thing to accomplish. They were very successful at pulling the wool over a lot of folks eyes, mine included. You have to give them credit for the marketing though. PT Barnum said it best. Thanks for the input. I wonder what the Lippert garbage was you had a problem with. I've owned 2 trailers since 2004 that had Lippert components and never had a problem. Everything by Lippert has been flawless. I know Lippert cranked out a bunch of bad frames about 10 years ago or so, got crucified on the internet, and got a bad rep for that. I have no affinity for Lippert, but Lippert is a huge company that makes many, many thigs; all are junk?

Newer 5ers, Slider Hitch Required For Short Beds?

I keep reading that the newer 5ers have a redesigned nose with curved sides so that you don't need a slider hitch on a short bed truck. My Ram has the 6.5 bed so I was wondering if I need a slider with certain models or if the newer ones eliminate the need for the slider hitch.

RE: Waste Tote Recommendations

I have a 12 year old Barker 2 wheel model 32 gallon. Still works fine. If you go bigger get a 4 wheeler. Thetford makes a good tote too. They're primarily used for gray water.

Opinions on Grand Design Fifth Wheels

We've been shopping recently for a used 5er maybe 2-3 years old. We like certain Montana models, Forest River Cardinal, and others. We've seen some Grand Design models pop up and wonder how they compare to the others and if owners are generally happy. We're looking for a full time model in the class of Montana, Big Horn, Big Country, Cardinal, Cedar Creek, etc.
