RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

Give it a try for a few thousand miles before you decry all the bad issues your mind invents. 150 miles was all I needed, I don't care for it. In fact for me it's a I will not buy a vehicle with it.

RE: F250 or F350 to Haul a 5th Wheel???

Your going to want a diesel to pull the load in the mountains. And your going to NEED a Dual Rear Wheel truck to carry the LOADED pin weight. That trailer could be around 4K for a fully loaded pin, plus the 4 people & stuff in the truck.

RE: Prentice Cooper State Park: Chattanooga, TN

Prentice Cooper is a State Forest, not a park. I haven't been up there in years. Prentice Cooper State Forest

RE: How critical is axle ratio?

And all that goes right out the window as soon as you back up. Only the lower rear gear helps in reverse.

RE: Route suggestions Fredricksburg, Va area to Memphis area

1860 miles your way, 1730 miles mine. The OP likes non interstate highway and if they are flexible it's an option. US-72/72A from Chattanooga to Memphis. And US-80 across from just east of Meridian MS to Macon Ga. Most of that is divided 4 lane, and mostly flat. The big plus is you stay far away from Nashville, Birmingham, and Atlanta.

RE: Route suggestions Fredricksburg, Va area to Memphis area

I'd do Chattanooga on the way to Memphis. Then go east from Vicksburg thru Montgomery to Savannah.

RE: 5th Wheel entry steps

Our problem with solid steps would be that they have to make ground contact. Where we park at home that's not possible.

RE: Route around Atlanta

Tifton to Calhoun is about an extra 50 miles to go up thru Albany to Columbus and Rome and rejoin I-75 at Calhoun. So that's an hour. I don't lose as much time with the RV as I would solo, I'm towing 65-68 anyway. Lots less traffic, and you can sit for a hour in Atlanta.

RE: Cades Cove

Well there is US-74 to US-129. It will keep you out of Gatlinburg, but US-129 is not even close to straight or level.

RE: Nascar Follies

You mean like Atlanta International Raceway? Pre the Bruton Smith change to Atlanta Motor Speedway and a Charlotte clone in 1996. 1/4 mile straights, and 1/2 mile turns.

RE: Anyone pulling a Montana 3120 with a SRW short bed?

I wouldn't do it. Our Mountaineer is 10K dry, loaded just under 12K. The 05 DRW we had went 11K loaded. Now that was 2800# pin. The rest was stuff in truck, firewood, tools, us & the dog. I'm just not going to watch every pound of stuff I haul around. So that's why when bought the 18 truck it was DRW also.

RE: SE TN trip Last week of March

We went via Nashville last time, is it that much longer going via Lexington? About 50 miles. It's worth it to me to avoid Louisville & Nashville. Watch your speed going up US-411. Several of those towns like to "Welcome You" with their special tourist tax!

RE: US 72 from Memphis to Sevierville, TN

Man hate to hear that, it was a nice park. Stayed there some years back returning from Arkansas.

RE: US 72 from Memphis to Sevierville, TN

2 Things. US-72A from Muscle Shoals AL. thru Decatur AL. is better than US-72 thru Athens. But if you can't get a site at Point Mallard, look at Joe Wheeler SP, it's right off US-72 just outside Rogersville AL. I-24 thru Chattanooga is a mess! Look at taking TN-28/US-127 north from exit 155 Jasper TN. north to Crossville TN. and I-40

RE: Slide out drifts open

Thanks for your reply. I'll try purging air out this weekend. I know it's not an external leak on cylinder because no sign of fluid anywhere. Could be an internal leak. I'll see what happens after I cycle the slides in and out a few times. That's what our was internal on the bedroom. But they both would creep out

RE: Best for service work

Never had any dealings with Integrity Chevrolet. Mountain View Ford (across the street) made me so mad I now take my F-150 company truck to Dalton. Mountain View Chevrolet wouldn't give me a price on a 18 Dmax DRW truck, they just wanted to sell me a leftover 17 2500. Ordered and bought the DRW truck from Walter Jackson Chevrolet here in Ringgold, only place it's been to for service.

RE: Which pick up to buy for towing big fifth wheel?

Since you have the trailer, load it up and weigh it. Then compare the pin weight to the cargo capacity of the truck. Be sure to add all cargo and people that will be in the truck with the weight of the pin. We could run a 350/3500 SRW truck with what we load out, but it would be close. No way we could load to the full 14.4 trailer GVW. The DRW truck makes that or a larger trailer no problem. Ram, Ford, or GM take your pick.

RE: TN in early June and early Sept

What is going to be open will be open in June, and won't close till after September. COVID restrictions in Tennessee have been done at the county level, and I don't see that changing unless it'a forced from the Federal level. As to the Weather, I'll take early June over early September. Early June isn't full hot. And early September has cooled off yet.
