RE: Pro-Pride Hitch

I use the gen y torsion hitch. No wd and no sway as the ATC will not sway. It's very heavy on the hitch with a 5.5 onan mounted up-front. Spread axle torsion is very stable. The gen y absorbes the shock perfectly and maintenance free But I have 2500 and hitch weight exceeds 1300lbs. So no half ton could do this set up.Just drop it on the ball and go. Super quiet and silent.

RE: Voltage Dump Valve Replacement

I have manual on our ATC. I find using the valve lubricant by Thetford makes a big difference on both valves. Also, no coffee grounds in the grey tank keep it working better as well.

RE: Spotted a new design for a TH - Wow, Beauty!!!

Speaks volumes. It actually might have superior construction quality over most Indiana mfg rvs. Good for him.

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

I bought a brand new 78 Chevy half ton right after graduation from college. 2 years later my heel went through the floor board. Rust. Michigan winters killed it in 4 years. Doors tailgate a mess. Big 3 deserved global competition. Asia European vehicles now have very high brand loyalty that's been passed down to younger generations. The RV industry is today's US dominated monopoly with a big middle finger to the customer. I hope ATC never sells out to Thor or Winnebago. It's built to stand the test of time. Respect is earned.

RE: Best resale value toy hauler or tt

Bought our ATC 28 front bedroom with 5.5 gen in 2017 for well under 45k. Not sure on value today but new it's close to 90k. Tempting to see what it would bring in this crazy market.

RE: Favorite Brand of 5th Wheel Toyhauler.

We love Michigan and summer the rig is tucked away. But when the winds of October start blowing we go west until April. Migration is a good thing!

Main thing is you are now free travel about the country. Enjoy!

RE: Favorite Brand of 5th Wheel Toyhauler.

FWIW we bought one of the first ATC toyhaulers in 2017. 28 front bedroom with the 5.5 gen. Bumper pull. It now has over 40k miles and all I can say is it's been a wonderful decision.We had class A, B, and even an airstream. Nothing compares in durability. Nothing. It gets bounced around all winter up and down the west coast and to Michigan and back and all I've done is axle maint and new tires. I hope they never sell out to Thor or Winnebago. Good luck but peel the onion back and compare before you pull the trigger.

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

Just read the highest brand loyalty on thid planet for vehicles is Subaru and Toyota. Speaks volumes. Respect is earned.

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

Same engine going into land cruiser. It must be reliable but going turbo so that will be tough.

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

Well what can we expect? It's a truck! They are all ugly! Now is it going to get better mileage? Updated and interior? Will it be as reliable? You want beauty get a Corvette.

RE: Stale DEF

I would submit we are very experienced rider's. But, in this situation a fall in the desert is always a possibility. Walking at best is a turned ankle. No hospital needs us at this point. We pick our battles.

RE: RV without a WD hitch

I do I80 michigan to west coast and back twice annually. I'm right in on the immediate shipments out of Indiana. My takeaway on transporters is they don't speed and split on using any bars or just on the ball. Sway is never an obvious issue.

RE: Stale DEF

Palm Springs you wait in line to get in stores. No hospital beds left and a ambulance can be a 2 hr wait. So, we decided e bikes are too risky. Hiking is now our entertainment. That's how you flex and travel in a raging pandemic. Life is short. Weather is stunning!!

RE: RV without a WD hitch

This year ditched the Andersen.I wore out the cone braking material. So I just drop it on the ball of a new gen Y torsion 16k hitch. Smoooth! Should have bought one a long time ago. Rig is a ATC 28 front bedroom.2018 CTD. Hitch weight about 1k. Trailer max 8500.

RE: Stale DEF

I'm amazed how this Cummins drains that Def tank when towing and especially in mountainous conditions. I know the covid thing is real but we are staying the course. About 13k miles annually towing a 28 ATC. DEF is never in too long! Currently heading to locked down palm springs. Lucky our reservation was held!!

RE: ATC Toy hauler

We have 2017 28 front bedroom. It now has well over 36k miles. No surprises. We added a Gerrard tankless water heater. It's a reliable gem.
