RE: Want a new truck?

I feel for the guys that need a truck now as they will have to pay a premium to not wait. But if you are patient and do research there are dealers that when the order banks were open were willing to make deals. I've got an F350 on order that I'm getting for 2% below invoice, which is about 6k under MSRP. Only catch is it will end up being a 6-7 month wait, and flying to pick it up. No dealers around me would come off of sticker. For me it will be a $250 flight, $500 in gas, and a night in a hotel, but will still save me $5000, and the truck will be broken in, and ready to tow when I get home. I'll have a fun road trip. Thats exactly the way to do it. I believe Grainger Ford in IA is selling at 2% under invoice. They were doing the same with the new broncos. If you can afford to wait you will do much better on price. You will be just a bit over $60k for a brand new F350 Lariat with the 7.3 engine. The X plan is only going to get you .4% below invoice and then there is the fee on top of that. If you live near IA and are patient, ordering a new truck in October could be the ticket.

RE: Recommend a TT (rough roads, no campgrounds)

That's a Black Series trailer. They're an Aussie designed, US built trailer. . Hardly, they are a chinese designed copy of what an aussie trailer looks like. Plenty of other forums have posts about the poor quality, junk materials, and poor assembly. There are people who get duped into paying big dollars because it looks "Aussie" LOL. I wouldn't fall into the trap of assuming that because something was made in China that its low quality. (Half of our stuff including IPhones are made in China). I would be wary as well of concluding from a couple of posts that something is low quality. There is a Black Series Facebook site. I saw one guy with complaints - the rest seemed pretty happy. My question regarding these big, beautiful trailers is how well they do off road. That's actually pretty hard to tell. A guy at work just sold his Black Series after less than 2 years. Bought himself a ORV. The reason you do not hear of too many people complaining about the Black Series is the ownership has threatened litigation against people who complain about their product. Some dealers have stopped carrying them do to quality issues.

RE: toy hauler 5th wheel

The problem nowdays is that everyone has a 4 seat SxS instead of a couple quads and dirtbikes. Most of the new toy haulers have large garages at the sacrifice of the living quarters, so they can fit these larger toys. When I had my Fuzion it had about a 11' garage which was fine for what toys we had, along with giving us a decent sized kitchen with Island. The 11" garage was plenty of room for the kids. If you are not stuck on looking at new, maybe something a few years older with a smaller garage might fit the bill.

RE: Roll up tonneau cover for GMC 2500HD Short Bed

10 Years ago I had a Truck Covers USA retractable cover. Worked great and would do it again. Not sure if they are still around, but if so could be one to consider.
