RE: February Camping From Long Island?

The already mentioned Otter Lake just into PA off I-80. Indoor pool, sauna, hot tubs. Not sure what else is open during the winter. http://www.otterlake.com

RE: New diesel F250 in NJ?

Registering a F350 at 11400# in NJ runs me about $180/year. No inspection either as its over 10,000# GVWR. Self-inspected. No regrets for getting the 350 here and I drive it daily.

RE: pulling fifth wheel with f250 supercab 6.2L engine

Get your new camper and go camping like others said.

RE: 2010 5th Wheel with a broken frame at Pin Box

Had something similar with our 2011 Cougar. Ours was at the connection of the sidewalls over the front section. Welds gave out and the walls dropped down when hitched, pulling the interior apart. Look up some qualified welders. If your willing to take down the underside of that area it won't take long. A RV dealer won't touch it. We happened to have a family member who could do the job. Look around, you'll find someone. Not worth replacing the rig over this IMHO.

RE: Tow Vehicle

Sounds like you'll be at or over your limits. 6 humans, plus gear, hitch. You'll likely be around 8500# ready to camp on the trailer. Do your math and remember kids have a funny way of growing, As far as "no other TV options" we camped with a family of 6. They pulled with a CC picked with front bench. They even crossed the country that way so it can be done. A properly optioned 3/4 ton gas pickup would offer both more towing capacity, more payload and a longer wheelbase. All those thing will make for a better towing (safer) experience. Not what your original question was but sharing another family's experience that is the same size as yours.

RE: Hose question........

Hmm. I carry 100' of drinking water hose. Maybe more. Once two other campers and I combined hoses to refill fresh water tanks in a state park. I think we had around 300' of hose out that day. But so much better than moving the rig! Carry a 25' electric cord, 30amp 2 10' sewer hoses, so max 20'.

RE: Maybe a new Ford?

Despite you being clear on a 250 vs 350 I echo the 350 bandwagon. Check some door stickers for payload just to be sure you're good. My old '02 350 had a comparable payload to the new 250s when I bought my '13. I was nearly over the truck's GVWR with the '02 with just a 30' fiver. Of course the choice is yours.

RE: Yellowstone park entrance/exit

Never exited by the west side, but entered that way 2x. Once with a Ford Ranger pulling a TrailManor 3023 and again with a 2013 Ford F350 6.7 pulling a 9.5k 30' fiver. Both times we exited I-90 and took 14(?) through Shell Canyon. Theres a great (no hooked) forest service campground by a lake shortly before descending into Sheridan. Now mountain grades and driving steep, long grades don't bother me. Slow and easy and no problems. We now have a 36' 12k fiver and I'd not hesitate to travel that route again. Keep your equipment in great shape and enjoy. FWIW, that Ranger was a 4L V6 and had no problems with power up, or down with the 3500+ lb. trailer. And coming down Wolf Creek Pass in CO I lost 1 trailer brake (wire broke at the magnet). Realized it part way down. Took my time and fixed the brake on the side of the road in the next down after purchasing supplies. Sure, I was way more alert, but it was totally uneventful. Happy Trails!

RE: How bad is this?

If your up for a considerable project... Lots of obvious water damage and delimitation apparent in those pics. Be ready to take a lot apart to get to the damage. And for it to look like it was repaired, unless your really good with body work. It would depend on my time availability and in person inspection if I were to take on that project. Been there, done that.

RE: RV graphics

Hey moderator. Would be great to be able to share info about where to get needed parts like replacement graphics. Please explain why a link to such a resource was removed. Unless caseyhoward was self-promoting what's the problem? I for one could use the info to source cracked and peeling decals.

RE: This ever happen to you?

Not so many problems with trucks. Its the buses. Not school busses but rather transit buses, tour busses. Excessive speed, unsafe lane changes, cutting off, failure to yield, failure to signal. Have come to just hate being around them and always expect them to do something stupid. Anyone else?
