RE: What is the max length travel trailer you think is practical

The smallest you can get away with but no bigger than 35 and ideally 25-30.

RE: Time saved/lost versus using motels

Motel room, there are way more motels than campgrounds. If you RV its not really about that though. It's about having all your stuff to cook, eat, shower,sleep and all the other comforts of home. Plus the ability to get out in nature to some places that dont have hotels.

RE: Badlands National Park

hit it on he way out. Stay at the NP campground or the KOA just south of the park for a night. Make sure to do the hike from the bottom straight up to the top.

RE: 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton for towing a TT

I breezed though the comments and as many have mentioned not all 1/2 tons are the same. Understand payload as that will be the first shortfall and some 1/2 tons can be on the light side. Look at all the fine print in the trucks towing guide and understand what you need to get what on the big chart in the back eith all the diffrent variables.

RE: Am I on the right track???

if I'm not mistaken tongue weight can be increased with the addition of a WD hitch. I thought I read that somewhere in the Chevy tow guide.

RE: TST 507 Repeater Installation Location

I mounted mine in the front pass though and connected it to the marker lights. The whole system works much better now.

RE: First TT purchase ?? about Dealer discounts & any advice

All good advice. Get a grasp on what your truck can tow and not just what the max towing capacity is, that number is useless. Really think about how you you are going to use it. Shower vs tub, outdoor kitchen, access to bathroom when slides closed, storage, outside storage access. Ask around, RV folks are not short on opinions or what they like and dislike. Walk the campground and if you see something you like stop and ask. 15 minutes later you will have first hand experience on that model and any other topics that come up. Look on the internet for the cheapest price and go in lower. CW will up-sell a bunch of stuff, you dont need any of it. If you get a good deal on the front end selling a 5 years down the road is not gonna kill you.

RE: My 2018 F150 Towing Experience

That's a bummer I was in a similar situation being at the max of my 1500 and toughed it out for 5 years. If it wasn't for the ProPride hitch I bought as a last ditch effort I would of sold the trailer and got something smaller. After getting a 2500HD it was a dramatic improvement

RE: Estes Park.

We did the Lyons route in and out a few weeks back and there was some mountain driving nothing to crazy bad. Talking to some folks in the area they all recommended that route. They did mention the Loveland route was totally redone.

RE: flat tire

I have found rolling up on lego blocks or some other ramp lifting the bad tire off the ground the easiest and most safe feeling.

RE: Lady Smith, WI

Stony creek is like a hour or so a way and i have heard nice things about that place. All WI state parks are nice but will not have water hookups but almost all have dump stations and 30 AMP electric. The National Forest campgrounds are all nice but will offer no electric\water and dump stations will be hit or miss. Wish i could offer some more insight but i don't get to that part of the state a bunch and when we do its mainly all national forest camping.

RE: TERRIFIED of heights, narrow roads with drop-offs, etc.

I'm not a fan of them much myself and i take great care not to end up on roads that i will regret especially while towing (when not towing i have been on some pretty sketchy roads but never really enjoyed it.) If sticking to the major roads for the most part i have found it not to be so bad and the parts that are bad are only short. Look at google maps, if you zoom in and see tons of switch backs find a another way. I go super slow and all the locals in CO probably cant stand me but it is what it is. You could always hop in the back seat put some blinders on along with ear plugs or get some Valium, i had it once and i really didn't care about much after taking it. Its a love hate relationship for me but i do love the mountains. Over time maybe it will get easier. If I'm in an area for a while at first the road might freak me out a bit but after driving it a bunch i find it does not bother me much. Good luck

RE: 2013 GMC 2500 HD 6.0/gas - Breaking questions

My 15 Silverado in tow haul mode will do some transmission braking and also has a feature called grade braking. After applying the brakes on the downhill the truck will try to keep the speed. I have found cruise on the downhill will also try to maintain the speed set using transmission braking. I tried the cruise feature on my trip to CO this summer after using to much brake on the big passes and it worked well on the "smaller" hills. Being from WI i dont get to test this often so keep that in mind.

RE: New Tire vs Re[air

I cant answer your question about Good Sam but of my four or so tire issues i have had on my TT none would of been repairable by a patch kit. I have read that sometimes it takes a while for them to show up and on top of that they have to head back and get a tire plus i imagine you might pay a premium but i'm just guessing on the later.
