RE: Insurance and RAM 5500

This might not apply to your truck now. But most likely it was shipped and sold as an incomplete vehicle. My insurance company knows the value of my custom service body plus the trucks value. It's obviously insured for the sum of both.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

Went into town last night to get a pizza and noted the price of diesel at our only station. Today it was at $7.19. A 15 cent jump in 18 hrs. Might need to pack soon and leave while we can still afford it!

RE: A Little Help With Weights

I think your camper is going to push +/- 5500 lbs ready to travel. Payload is indeed published and most people with the bigger campers identify the components (axle, wheels, tires etc) as well as test drive the unit to better gauge if suspension upgrades might be needed.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

We're still doing the western states swing. Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Home. Home prices set the bar high. Looking forward to sub $6.00 diesel

RE: Where to Stay in Mammoth, CA?

Silver lake resort checks all the boxes. We typically camp across the road which lacks hook ups but is close to the lake. It's pretty rare not to have at least one of your days with lots of wind. Beautiful sun rises on the mountain slopes!

RE: Ram 5500 with Flatbed and Torklift Super Hitch question

This might be of no help to you because I have a utility body. This is a 60" CA 2015 Ram 5500 with a 9' body. You might be restricted to an " off the shelf" flat bed that is already set up with mounting brackets. PM me if you think I can provide other pictures and I'll send them to your email. I sent the hitch to the builder and also discussed the step bumper so it could all be considered during pre-fab.

RE: In 2 years time I can no longer afford to buy a camper

Or the newly coined phrase " dynamic pricing" which is meant to overcharge with a smile-

RE: Water leak, we cannot find.

Check out HappilyeverHanks on YouTube. There is too much to just be a coincidence. Same 5th as you, not sure the year. They posted their problem not to long ago-

RE: Douglass Truck Bodies

We like ours made of steel. Not sure why you would consider Aluminum when you will have 3,000 lbs +/- extra payload.

RE: Chassis Cab Ride Quality

I have over 2,000 lbs additional payload after my camper is mounted. Nice margin and we can still consider towing a trailer with a weight distribution set-up. Empty or wash-board forest service roads requires a sports bra. Our suspension is factory stock with a 60" cab to axle wheelbase.

RE: They get bigger and bigger.

Mike, I see it's a prototype and am wondering did the person who had it at the rally throw a price out? I bet if it isn't over 100 it's darn close. I didn't see where the site has a weight to it either. Not assuming you know, just curious. Thanks He didn't even have a name for it yet. I'm guessing he has just getting the final features dialed in before he goes into production. He primarily builds tiny homes and possibly there could be chances to utilize components from homes to campers. The ceiling was over 7' tall and He had a legit Furion cooktop/oven and I thought a 12v ac unit. I asked him about supply chain problems and he got bit with his hot water heater. He designed the space and plumbing needs only to be told he was out of luck and the bigger manufacturers were the priority at the time.

RE: They get bigger and bigger.

We toured it while at the TCA rally. Super nice guy, with a lot of experience. We liked how he neatly designed " wedding cake" type steps to the sleeping area.

RE: Truck Camper Rally

We're just south of activity central having arrived after hours Wednesday. Come by and say hi if you're here. I'll take some pics. Met some Host owners and toured a new Cascade, and Youkon. A nice couple in a Cascadefrom Alaska just left for Lake Havasu this morning-

RE: Does anyone need some used Happijacs?

I might be able to do the hand-off. We're seeing friends in Sandpoint Idaho, then heading to Bigfork Montana to see family. All happening in August. Dates TBA

RE: Delays in camper buiddate

Yes, your lithium battery package can operate it no problem. With variable heat settings, the duration is also unknown. We had our camper out last weekend and knowing our typical overnight usage, we splurged with a fire for awhile before going to bed.

RE: Random Questions

We bought the Thule 2T pro bike rack which can carry 2 e-bikes up to 60 lbs each. With a 48" Torklift superhitch, we can extend our rear slide and just touch the handlebar of 1 conventional bike. We're just now looking at e-bikes-

RE: Hey F550 5500 flatbed camper or custom bed owners:

You can use a horizontal pin connection or fastguns. The pins would require very accurate alignment. I stuck with fastguns but made custom tie-down brackets, powder coated them and utilized the existing bolt patterns. Look through their gallery and identify how many use Fastguns. Let me know and I can send you pics

RE: HOST Yukon Dump Valve Location

Sounds like the method you are doing would need to be done at your own FHU site as you would not want to take that much time at a more public dump station that might have a line.. Totally agree! I would use the wand at home after dumping as an internal wash and leave that diluted fluid in the tank until the next trip.
