RE: Hit a bump and lost my transmission

9k for an HD truck 7 years newer and 70k less miles doesn't sound too bad. Send them receipts for the tires and tranny, also anything you added like a bedliner, radio, hitch, steps bars or anything else. When my truck was totaled, insurance added a portion of the price I had paid for tires a few months before + all add ons. If you do the buyback, find out what's required in your state to re-title. You may have to do some repairs to pass inspection and get it re-titled.

RE: Pulling Travel Trailer in Colorado with Tahoe

The main grade is a 6% grade and is approx 5-6 miles from one side to the other. So its shorter and slightly less steep than vail pass. its a 2 lane mountain highway, with a few switchbacks and the view of a mountain dropoff on the side. speeds limits are low, 35-45 on the pass as I recall, and you'll have to slow down to 20 or less on a couple of the switchbacks on the minturn side. Just take your time and keep to the speed limits.

RE: Pulling Travel Trailer in Colorado with Tahoe

Why not take hwy 24 from minturn over tennessee pass to leadville, then 24 to buena vista and then to the springs. I've done this route many times with my 37' toyhauler in tow. Avoid I70 between denver and vail west on fridays and east on sundays. Agree with Schomer, I25 gap construction is a mess who knows how it will be next year.

RE: 12’ Dune Sport Toy Hauler floor replacement

you might consider advantech for the floor. wouldn't help with what you have now, but will be more water resistant if something happens in the future.

RE: 12’ Dune Sport Toy Hauler floor replacement

is it possible you could replace just the left half of the floor? which would allow you to remove one section of the floor at a time and slide the new (half) floor piece one under the wall. you might need some reinforcement underneath where the seams on the two halves meet.

RE: Tow Vehicle Advice For Newbie

Rvdreaming -check this link used f250's they have these in stock regularly. I imagine there should be some similar priced ones around you.

RE: Tow Vehicle Advice For Newbie

You should check used f250's. Near me I see several 2017 CC 4x4 gassers xl's and xlt's with 30-40k miles for listed for around $30k.

RE: Camper got hailed on last night

here's my suggestions: Cars: pretty straight forward, they will give you an estimate and usually a check on the spot. Most repairs will be paintless dent repair, unless the paint is damaged, or its severe damage. You should look over the car for any cracks in the paint, especially for dents on edges, near body lines, or deep dents, cracked paint will require conventional repair and its easily overlooked. Take your car to a reputable shop, they will go back to the insurer for supplemental repair costs if its more than what the insurer gives you. House: If you know a reputable roofer, have them present when the adjuster is there, they will help get the initial claim to cover everything needed. You should also be covered for things like dented gutters, chipped paint/siding, torn screens, broken patio furniture, broken window frames, etc. If you have a mortgage, the check will be made out to you and the bank. Every bank has their own process for how they pay the money out. Trailer: You will most likely need to take this to a dealer for an estimate, your insurance company will give you instructions on this. You can have this done before or after the adjuster looks at it. Siding repairs are expensive, so be prepared for an expensive repair estimate. As far as the roof, check for broken/cracked skylights, tape these up so they don't leak until you can get them replaced. Also check the top of the awning, the fabric is often damaged, other than that look for broken or damaged a/c cover, refrig vent cover, lights, trim etc. You may want to call the dealer first, some charge for estimates, some don't. My suggestion is to look everything over in advance so the adjuster gets as much as possible in the initial claim. Also keep receipts for any temporary repairs you make, these are reimbursable.

RE: Private Seller - Financing

Some options from any bank/ credit union - Rv /trailer loan (rv value must be >= loan amount) - If you own a home a HELOC or home equity loan - If you own a late model car/truck you can give the bank the title and get an auto loan
