RE: Palomino 2012 Maverick

Why there is pole supporting the nose? He told me because his wife likes to sleep there in the summer because they have no A/C in their house.. Maybe BS... Thanks for your replies.

Palomino 2012 Maverick

Hello Guys, I was looking into buying a Palomino Maverick 2012 in good condition. The guys is asking $ 12k for it but he said it was totaled by the previous owner because it wasn't stable an a leg broke off. A other guy got it cheap and repaired it. The current owner said everything is OK. My questions to you are: What should I look to check if the repair was done properly ? How can I see if the structure is weak ? Are Palomino of that year good ? Palomino 2012 Thanks, Intravino

RAM 2500 V10 model year 2000

Hi Guys, Do you think that a RAM 2500 V10 5 speed manual is a good fit for a light truck camper (1500 to 2500 lbs) ? Thanks for your time, Intravino

RE: Travel Lite 625 2016

I noticed something, there has been water coming in on the other side of the dent. I will not purchase it. https://ibb.co/tm05BNK https://ibb.co/tm05BNK

RE: Travel Lite 625 2016

Yes, I noticed also they were all falling a part. There was cheap transparent caulking around were you could push in the panels. Inside, the sink had these tiny dents like some tools were dropped in it during the construction of the inside of the TC. They were chips on the counters and on the wood cabinets. Too bad !!!!

RE: Travel Lite 625 2016

Yes but if the structure if affected, they will have to lower more the price. Cosmetically, it looks worst on the picture then in real life.

RE: Travel Lite 625 2016

The structure is wood. I will ask for ladder to check that corner and inside also. I will check for those lights also. I feel that this TL TC is much better made then the new ones I went to see lately. Boy, the 2019 and 2020 were POS. You could have pushed the flat aluminum siding inside two inches on all the seams near the nose and roof.

RE: Travel Lite 625 2016

Thanks Kayteg1. What is a branch kiss, they TC hit a branch ? To check for structural integrity, I need to press on that corner ? Thanks, Intravino

Travel Lite 625 2016

Hello Again, I just found a deal on a TL 625SL in my area. It is a Motor home dealer that took one for exchange. It is a 2016 and I inspected inside and out for water infiltration, I found nothing. The seals and caulking all look great. The only thing is there is a dent on the side near the roof on the passenger's side. https://imgur.com/CSnAzLZ https://imgur.com/CSnAzLZ Can you please tell if this is a dent or something more? Thanks, Intravino

RE: Pick up for TC

Update on the Cummins pickup. I called the guy for an appointment and asked him more details questions (thanks to the replies form members here); the injection pump is due, the auto transmission is slipping and plus there is a werid noise from the differential. Too good to be true. I passed on going to see it. I will look more into a gas engine. Thanks again for all of your replies. Intravino

RE: Pick up for TC

Thanks for all of your replies. I had some personnel business to attend lately, so I had no time. I called the owner and I have to go see it during the weekend. Thanks, Intravino

RE: Pick up for TC

An F150 with a payload package can haul some of the smaller campers around. But it will still reach its limits fairly soon. You can't have too much truck is a sentiment frequently heard around TCers. If you consider a regular cab, be forewarned that the typical TC offers limited storage - especially the lighter builds. So most of us are happy to have some extra space in the cab. I had a Silverado 2500HD Regular Cab for a number of years, and the lack of storage space was one of the reasons why I went with the extended cab we have now. I picked the Ford 6.2 gas engine as it has a pretty solid reputation, and 2011-16 the transmission was the same as in the 6.7 Diesels. You don't hear a lot of bad things about these trucks mechanically. They do like to rust (as all of them do) without additional rustproofing. Thanks for insight. I guess payload is similar to what boaters calls the foot disease, you always need a bigger boat. I read really bad things about Travel Lite on this forum about leaking even when almost new. Is this still the case with the build quality of Travel Lite ? Thanks,

RE: Pick up for TC

You guys are alright. I was looking at the Cummins for a diesel alternative. I am more a Ford man but the Ford Diesels are a bit complicated to work (for a Diesel newbie like me) vs the Cummins. I am also look at a Ford F-250 XL 2003 regular cab with a 5.4L gas engine, 2x4, 100K mile for $9000. No rust also. I saw also a 2009 Dodge Ram 2500 6.7L with 100K miles on it, 2x4 but it is a dealer that is selling it for $ 16000. I read that purists do like more the 5.9L because of no emission stuff. I do 80 % of my repairs myself; balljoints, CV joints, Motor mounts, brakes and all of the electronics, obd2 etc... What about the F-150 with Payload package, can they really move 2600 lbs in the bed ? For a TC, I am looking at Travel Lite (but I saw negative reviews here in the forum), Palomino or anything lite. I am going to see soon a guy that used to make is own TC, he used to sell about 20 to 50 units per year, he took his retirement this year and he has his own TC for sale, 1800lbs, toilet, stove/oven, shower. The frame is wood and the outside is aluminum, with fiberglass insulation, the good old fashion way. He is asking $9000 for it but I did not see it. I went to see Lance and Northern lite at a new dealer. Nice construction but heavy and $ 40k to $ 50K. I saw a used Cirrus this past weekend, nice but I thought It was nicer inside, I was disappointed, $ 40k for a 2018 model, 3000 lbs or more. Thanks again,

RE: Pick up for TC

Thanks for the replies. The pickup is 2x4, club cab. There is a picture of it at the end of the message. In Canada, how do they enforce weight? Do they look at the truck door sticker and then look for a camper sticker? Campers are always listed dry weight, and may not even include features like AC in the weight. If they go by stickers then you should be fine, if they weigh it then everyone is over, haha. Do you have to go through highway scales? It depends of the province, in Quebec, if you have a commercial plate called F and your are over 10 000lbs, then you need to stop at the weighing station. If you have a normal car plate on the pickup, you don't need to stop at the scales. https://ibb.co/K7btY2L

RE: Pick up for TC

Yes, it is an ATX, the truck is $ 7000 CAD and no rust, perfect frame also, one owner truck. The owner said it never saw winter and an oil treatment was done on the undercarriage every year. I don't have much more info until I go and see it. How much do you have to add to the dry weight to be safe, 1000 lbs ? I was looking into a TC with only shower and no toilet. I saw some new and used ones from 1000 lbs to 1400 lbs dry weight. The most heavy I was interested in was 1800 lbs with stove/oven, shower and toilet. I saw some Pop-up ones but you are talking about 1600 lbs with toilet. BTW, we will be traveling as two adults and one 30 lbs hunting dog. I think Quebec doesn't enforce the GVWR door tag yet but I heard from other owners that that the US customs, they do check the GVWR, even more so if you have a slide out TC. I hate the jive that some TC salesman gave about GVWR saying that don't worry about it. Thanks again,

RE: Pick up for TC

The pickup is a single wheel drive, 160K miles and I don't know if the block is a 53. The payload of Cummins is around 2900lbs for what I saw in old Dodge brochures. I like much more a Ford gasser but I have this "deal" on this 99 Cummins. I know the attachment system is different on a TC. I am looking for a long bed 8 ' and I want a "lite" TC, 1800 lbs max, no tips out like Lance or an other super heavy brand. I just asked that question because pulling a 5 Wheel would not damage the transmission long term or lower the lifespan? Thanks to the OTHER members for their answers. Christ, If I knew that asking a question would have given so condescending answers, I would have went on a Facebook group. What a warm welcome.....

Pick up for TC

Hello, First post. I was looking to get a pick up with 8 feet bed for TC and I found a nice 99 Cummins. The problem is that owner is saying that he used to pull a fifth wheel. Would you consider a pick up that was used for a fifth wheel ? Thanks,
