RE: weight-compatible trailer

One more thing to concern yourself about. Many small vehicles such as yours, also have front face square footage limits.

RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

Always see what the dealer can offer in financing. My DIL is loan officer at a bank and they could not come close to the dealers rate. Loan companies often offer tremendous incentives to dealers.

RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

Other than the box,RV,s are component construction. Each supplier warranties it,s own component.

RE: RV surveyors

No there are not.Like wandering wrote,hiring a mobile RV tech to do an inspection is your best bet. No one has a stamp of authority though.

RE: Need help - Weight distribution hitch installation pics

Looks to me like you are nose down on the trailer. Try flip your stinger and adjust to level your trailer. Also looks like you are in the outer hole on the stinger, possibly because your spare is in the way? Longer the fulcrum the more bob. Also how many miles on the truck? Original shocks could be worn?

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

I wish someone could demonstrate the used price differential between colors. Is a dealer going to offer less on green trade in as opposed to a white one? If so how much? To me logically if the second owner was that particular, he would buy new and order what he wants. If he does not have the credit or financial wherewithal to buy new,I doubt color actually figures into the equation for the majority of second owners and none of the third.

RE: Suggestions for a Weight Distribution Hitch

Take a look at the Blue Ox Sway Pro, no noise, and you can backup with it. I've had one for 6 years, and would buy it again. Real easy to spend someone elses money. How much did your fancy hitch cost you? I use an Anderson, have been using it for probably twenty years. Never gave me a seconds hesitation. I back up with my Anderson all the time. just loosen the sway bar and don't jackknife. I am positive that the Blu Ox is a superior hitch, but how much benefit for cost? Ten times as much as a mainline system? That will be hard to demonstrate!

RE: Pre-planning for first long duration trip upon retirement

If you are going to Alaska, forget sightseeing CONUS. No way to do justice to the American west in 3 months. Alaska should be a month or so on its own. Make it two separate voyages or extend the one to a year. Just too darn much to experience!

RE: Small gas tank beef

NO beef at all for me. I bought the correct truck with the correct tank for me. I get about 350 miles towing before I have to fuel. Pretty much a days driving for me. This! I guess one should shop for correct fuel tanks and then take whatever truck is attached. Others have the ability to improve their trucks to meet their needs. Those that use a tow vehicle for something other than an interstate queen can appreciate a larger than stock size tank. What not to like? ;) I shopped for the correct everything! ;) I got a 35 gallon tank in my truck which I like. I got an LBZ diesel engine in my truck which I like. I got an Allie tranny in my truck. Just think; some misfortunate people bought a 6.oh with a 26 gallon tank. I feel sorry for some peoples choices. :B What is an Allie transmission? Did you mean an Allison? Allison is the word, and name of the manufacturer. Allison, not Allis, not son,nor any other combination of letters. ALLISON. unless you have an intimate personal relationship with your transmission which allows the use of diminutive pet names. The correct term for a tranny would be transexual.

RE: Auxiliary driving lights

If you have even half a second advance warning of a critter, you are that far ahead. Go with the floods and have them aimed slightly towards the shoulders.

RE: HOW do I do this?

I wouldn't register it in NY. I'd find a way to register it in Arizona and save a **** load of money ever year. Yes, everybody needs to do all they can to trump out on their taxes. So you research all the taxes nation wide and pay based on the highest while not taking any deductions? Nothing wrong or immoral about leaving an area with high taxes. As long as you are doing it legally and completely,hewing to the laws of both new and former domicile.

RE: 2022 Toyota Tundra Reveal

I'm scared! However, not nearly as scary as the current Chevy HD trucks, which I have deemed the ugliest truck ever produced (I'm working on award for the styling team as we speak :W) X2

RE: HOW do I do this?

I wouldn't register it in NY. I'd find a way to register it in Arizona and save a **** load of money ever year. Save all that money on what? NY has no personal property or wheel tax, and the maximum annual passenger vehicle registration fee (includes motorhomes) payable every two years, is $70. There is an annual safety inspection requirement, but that's just $20 or $21 depending the weight. NY has some wicked property taxes,but very low registration fees. Your tax is going to be the rate in the county you register in, usually around 8%. You pay this once,when you initially title the vehicle in NY,not to be taxed again until sold.

RE: HOW do I do this?

Are you selling your NY home? You can't just transfer the plates from your old rig to the new? Also what are you trying to accomplish tax wise? Ny taxes vehicle once per owner,when you purchase. and our registration fees are actually quite reasonable compared to other states. To sell your old oneyou need a trusted friend /relative or a consignment lot.

RE: Route 66 in a Motorhome

I will answer again, hopefully I will not be moderated out again. Most of 66 is quick photo opportunities. You need to be on your toes,and often parking is non existent. Some towns have really done a great job of capitalizing on the Mother Road mystique while others apparently do not see the value. Much of 66 is now the service road for I-40.It is a pain to drive but do not succumb to the interstate, there is much to be seen. Most of the attractions have the same old 50's and 60's kitsh so don't expect anything new and wonderful. The story of 66 is the story of the nation, modernization, urban renewal. It is replete with the successes and the (many) failures and the results on unintended consequences. A sobering ride and a chance for reflection.

RE: Oops

Check that the brakes themselves aren't the issue. Did they seize up? Even at max and locking up when braking...they should still release once the driver takes his foot off the brakes. Yep he sure skidded those tires for a distance. There should have been smoke rolling, he ain't got no mirrors? Valhalla is correct though, your controller can be set to the max and this will not occur,you have a frozen brake.

RE: Pre-planning for first long duration trip upon retirement

There is not enough time. We spent96 days traveling from NY to the West coast and back. We spent the entire trip paring things off our list. There can be no time limit .

RE: Recommendation - patching interior wall

Without seeing what you are working with it is hard to asses a path. I think I would trim out the hole and start from scratch. Since you mention water damage, I imagine that this trailer is not of concourse quality. You should be able to find a piece of wall board the you can cannablize perhaps inside a cabinet. Also I would find some self stick wallpaper or vinylcover that would co ordinate with what you have. But that is just me, Frugal and always function before form.

RE: Route 11 Pennsylvania

I ran route 11 as an alternative to 81. No worse than any two lane black top. Lots of towns and reduced speeds. and you know Pennsylvania, been no road alignment since 1786,so you have no shoulders sharp turns and no building setback. However if you hate interstates as I do and you are patient driver,it is a good drive.

RE: What do you think about this set up?

In 1958 my grandparents towed a travel trailer from NY to Texas to Denver and back. If their 210 hp Buick accomplished this you should have no problem.
