RE: Prepping for below freezing temps and snow.

This thread is nothing more than an excuse to show off your shop and yes, I am jealous. specta probably has higher electric bills, heating bills, maintenance expenses and pays more in taxes. Feel better now :@ If he can swing all that and still afford to go camping and whatnot, even more jealous! Life goals. . .

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

You camp somewhere you don’t trust your kids safety being in a tent (not really a tent, more of a popup camper) or just a helicopter dad? I can think of pros and cons to the tip outs but ….not life safety. There are a lot of places that only allow hardsides due to critters. Maybe he camps in one of those places. When one says critter, something small like a rabbit or prairie dog is what comes to my mind. . .

RE: Truck Camper Models with 3 Beds?

Find one with a REAR TENT. It will be hard to find one but lance 1191's had it and some Host campers had it as an option. My 2 kids split sleeping on the floor and dine out, I wish could have found one with a good rear tent when I was looking but the tent material on the ones I found needed to be redone and I didn't have the patience at the time to source new material. Yes! I love mine. Even without the tent it still has 3 beds: cab, dinette, and a small one that folds down over the dinette. The tent isn't ideal in all conditions, but when you can use it you basically add a bedroom to the thing.

RE: Camper Battery Charging Issue

I thought rotten egg smell was basically a death sentence for the battery?

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

For every slow poke, there are 10 others pushing well beyond the speed limit, cutting in and out of lanes and putting everyone near them at risk. We just visited the museum in Kearney, it was pretty cool. Towards the end they had a radar gun. I was surprised to see how very few were even doing 5 over in a 75. I did not get that perception from behind the wheel.

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

Edit: Please gtfo of the left lane if you're doing 56mph or even 66mph up Snoq Pass! :D Truth! I sure don’t miss the WA Left Lane drivers. Well, sometimes they are in MT, but they don’t seem to stay in the left lane long on I-90. Must the be the traffic whizzing by them. Even the dumb ones figure out they are in the wrong lane. The state of CO is left lane ******** and merge lane incoherent.

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

70ish. I had a blow out at 65 and totaled out the truck, camper and tow jeep in less time than it takes to type it. The faster you go the more catastrophic the outcome if something goes wrong. I like 65 but it seems hard to maintain on the interstate. Was it a SRW?

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

I never set the cruise on the return trip to CO over 70. I'm going to tally up the fuel bill to see if it was worth it. I was too chicken to push the fuel stops to the limit, so could have realistically pulled the same stops at 75 vs 70. Truck seemed happier though, only downshifted for a scant few hills coming back vs going down at 75 zinging back and forth 4-3-4.

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

Not to drift off topic but gas mileage has never been a concern as to how fast I drive. I drive at speeds that I am comfortable at and the gas mileage is what it is. It's not the economy so much as the range that bothers me. Increasing the range = work.

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

I was doing 75 from CO to MI and it's hard on gas. The truck is happier down at 65, 75 was the limit for not downshifting over the hills.

RE: Do you believe this? 2022 Chevy 3500 HD dually

"My 2019 CC SRW 8' bed LT trim with snow plow prep was 8250lbs with 3200 on the rear when delivered with full fuel and driver, they must have went on a diet." "No plow, straight from the dealer to DOT scale, 5050lbs rear and 3200 on front axle. Mine is a diesel as I believe that is what we are talking about." So which one is it?? :h Looks like he snuck an edit in there.

So the curb weight of a brand new crew cab long bed diesel dually 4x4 is 7200#? I'll believe that when me shjt turns purple and smells like rainbow sherbet. https://youtu.be/1xbLO5bB0Tk

RE: 96 F-250 diesel, campers under 2300?

Rear GAWR on sticker is 6084 lbs. My tire ratings add up to that exactly. Rear axle weight empty is 2640 lbs. So... Payload 3,444? That's the way I'd do it. If you upgrade your tires you could probably gain some capacity up to the limits of your wheels and then the actual axle's capacity. The axle's actual capacity may be hard to find. For GM trucks the rear is made by AAM. I found that they list the one under my truck at 10,000 pounds or so even thought the door sticker declares it to be around 8,500. I'd only seen it rated around 8700# myself, can't find the site I found with that number but it seemed more legit than Wikipedia. If I could ever find a 12k GVWR cab and chassis I'd have a better idea of how high the general was willing to rate it. OP this is the approach I'd take to finding how high Ford rated your axle. In my application, I'm limited by spring pack at a minimum. The C&C trucks also had taller, beefier frames with reinforcements for a measley 2000# increase in GVWR.

RE: VIDEO: Installing new 4400 pound 6+1 rear leaf springs

Why not just add the F350 upper overload? I'll admit I didn't watch the video.

RE: Hit the scales again this morning, PERFECT!

I just identify as not being overweight. Fat shaming a truck should be taboo these days too.

RE: Still Having Problems With TC and Truck

What year and kind of truck do you have? I didn't know forklift had any mount that would bolt to the bed as it isn't structural. Only ones I have seen bolted directly to the frame members. My Torklift mounts on my 97 bolt both to the frame and the bed, but they bolt to the bed via the frame mount so there is substantial steel involved there.

RE: Glad I caught this

I just weld a nut to the broken bolt and spin it out if I can't grab it with pliers.

Hooray for sloppy craftsmanship! Guess I'll give mine a good once over too now.

RE: Question: too much camper - too little truck

Airbags will level the truck, but won't add as much stiffness as more spring. Pay attention to what's actually rolling. I personally get a little camper roll before the truck begins to lean, and when it does lean it's not that much. You can feel the camper doing its thing though. I did Bilstein shocks, airbags, Hellwig rear sway, front Lance camper shocks, and most recently added another upper overload. It was a double whammy because on one hand it added spring, but being an upper it pushed both upper into the frame horns sooner just like a stable load would do. If your E tires aren't aired up to the max that will also make an appreciable difference.
