RE: Really Disappointing (T/C Weight)

I think you'll be fine, but in the long run it'sup to you. This rig was 1,800lbs over sticker and it didn't care either. https://i.imgur.com/Ad182VMl.jpg

RE: TC off truck

We've been doing it for decades. Our TC wasn't designed to be used off-truck, so we had to build additional floor structure for it, and always have supports under it when we use it. We carry it with us all the time...takes about 15 minutes to unload and setup. https://i.imgur.com/gYQyut6l.jpg

RE: Host Mammoth Triple Dog Dare Challenge Report

We use removable reflectix sheets on all the windows in the cold and it works great. I need to do something under the bed for cold weather. It got REALLY COLD in the C/O when it was 6* out.

RE: Really Disappointing (T/C Weight)

I've been over my "sticker" since I've owned it....LOL. 4,500lbs loaded and ready to camp, puts me 400-500 over GVW and the truck could care less. The ONLY thing DOT cares about is if your axles and tires can handle the load, and my rig is well within those figures. Upper stableloads and Bilstein shock is the only "upgrades" that have been done, and the truck still has a "rake" to it that requires blocks under the front tires to be level. GO FOR IT! https://i.imgur.com/0fndzJEl.jpg

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

RE: Single Rear Wheel vs Dually - Whats the Best for You

^^^hehe that is not saying much for your HD, but I know it's true.... cruisers feel wonderful in the curves but as far as speed is concerned they can have a hard time keeping up to a logging truck. I don't ride like Grandpa that's for sure! https://i.imgur.com/zLR2LzQl.jpg Nice bike, and yes HD's can corner decently when setup properly. I have replaced my ground off floorboards more than once. Is it a crotch rocket? Not by any means, but then I can walk upright after 500 miles too...LOL. Red is a 30 year old DRW and it will corner harder than I care to drive it...with that much rear tire it just sticks. and I LOVE driving 74, if you like that try Hwy 2!

RE: Anyone going to Quartzite

We went last year for a few weeks in Jan. Can't this year, left the S&S in Oregon...wishful thinking! https://i.imgur.com/Z3l4g4Dl.jpg

RE: Please help me decide on a truck camper

Northern Lite, hands down. So what if there is wood? Where is the water going to get past the fiberglass shell? Wood is great as long as you keep it dry. Your only potential leaks are at the vents and windows really, and it is unlikely the water is able to run inside the fiberglass construction, it will have to leak into the camper which will be obvious. and EVERY hole that's ever been put in it....lol. If you do proper maint, it isn't a problem, if you don't they will ALL leak and rot.

RE: Rotella for GAS Engines

I use the diesel oil in Red, but it has a flat tappet cam and the new oils aren't designed for that while the diesel oils are.

RE: Please help me decide on a truck camper

Spend a few hours in each without anyone bothering you as if you were camping. That alone will tell you which is better for your situation. That being said ANY RV leaks at the seems if it's not tended to...no matter what ANYONE says...and...if you are diligent with PM you can enjoy years if not decades with a leak-free RV. We rebuilt our S&S 12 years ago and replaced a bunch of wood that had rotted from previous owners failures to maintain it. We check our "seals" twice a year and maintain them....what a surprise...no leaks in 12 years.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Different strokes. Sometimes all you need to get away is an overnight in your own driveway. We called it "redneck" camping....and the kids were NOT allowed to bug us....lol.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

We boondock 90% of the time and have a TC for that reason. NE Oregon in the Whitman National forest...no hookups, just solar. https://i.imgur.com/FK1BXCel.jpg

RE: Tire chains needed?

I carry these: Auto Socks They seem to be allowed chair replacements everywhere and they are very easy to carry. I have never had to use them so I can't comment on how well they work. Those are interesting.....

RE: Bringing extra fresh water.

The 'ol S&S carries 30 gallons, and we've figured out how to go 7-8 days on that if we bring drinking water also. I will outfit the enclosed trailer that I get for the Harley with an under floor fresh and grey tank, along with the giant solar array that will be on the roof and able to plug into the TC that we end up with in retirement.
