RE: Crazy Parts Prices from Manufacturers

Don't dump on the parts people, they have to follow the rules and go by whatever the computer tells them. Yes, patrs and accessory pricing can be ridiculous. I ran a fleet of light and medium duty trucks, a ten ply pickup tire listed at $245. I paid $156 and the dealer made money, it was obscene. I have met very knowledgable counter persons, others would have trouble tying their shoes.

RE: Traveling to the NW

The only road that warrants special consideration is Going to the Sun in Glacier National Park. Leave the trailer behind and loop back via US2. If you don't like heights it's not a good idea. Otherwise you are good to go, enjoy the trip.

RE: Warning! Publci Toilet Hygene

Nothing new, this has been an issue since the invention of toilets. I have a quick look, if the seat looks suspect I wet a tissue and wipe it before I sit down. I have more important things to be concerned about like where can I buy beer.

RE: No! I’m not top heavy.

That would earn him a ticket here.

RE: A new way to tow a 5’er!

How would he hook up the utility trailer brakes unless he converted to electric? From the look of that setup there probably aren't any. As Jim n Steph mentioned that would be a real challenge to back up not to mention illegal in most states.

RE: 5th wheel tires

The well known brand name tires with the ST designation should serve you well. Stay away from the cheap brands offered on line, these 'China bombs' will cost you a lot of money and grief. Also make sure the manufacturing date is current, some 'new' tires peddled at a discount will be old stock.

RE: Phoenix to Toronto, May 2020

Would you do better entering Canada at Niagara Falls? 401 is a gong show, I would spend as little time as possible on it.

RE: A redneck Automated Safety Hitch?

Can you imagine backing that into a campsite?

RE: Two Weeks in Canada

Where do you plan to enter Canada? If you are crossing at Oroville there are lots of hiking trails, the old Fairview townsite above Oliver is neat, but be mindful of rattlesnakes. Further north are Penticton and Kelowna with beautiful beaches and great swimming to keep the kids entertained. The Kettle Valley trail is a wonderful walking/cycling route, you will easily fill two weeks.

RE: Class A crash

All he had to do was slow down and wait for the car to go by before trying to change lanes. Driving too aggresively and not paying attention.

RE: It could have went bad!

Back in my youth we were stock car racing on a budget. We towed the car on a heavy trailer designed for farm equipent behind a Chevelle, the trailer brakes if it had any weren't hooked up (no controller in car) and no safety chains. We figured if the trailer left we weren't going with it. One night we returned from a track 75 miles away at around 80 mph. The next morning looking at the car I noticed a weld broken on the hitch, The end of the ball stud and a portion of the nut were ground off from hitting the pavement, we could only imagine the light show that caused.I am amazed we didn't kill ourselves that summer.

RE: I shopped for a new TT today

That is always fun. It's a guy thing.:B Your truck should handle it well

RE: Sacramento to South Carolina

Mountain Directory West would be a good resource. Stick to the interstates for the least mountainous routes. Have you considered United, American or Southwest? :B Pretty hard to leave CA without encountering hills.

RE: Oregon or what to do after Glacier

I love Idaho, Washington and Oregon, there is so much to see. U.S. 2 is a spectacular drive or take I-90. At Wenatchee go south on 97 then west on 12 to avoid the madness known as Seattle. I-5 is somewhat monotonous so at Portland take 18 to the coast and enjoy the Pacific Coast Highway, the scenery is breathtaking.

RE: Towing a 2640lb 16ft TT with a Ford Ranger 4.0L?

I would claustrophobia trying to full time in a 26' trailer especially in winter but that's just me. YMMV. The Ranger should have adequate capacity to tow something like that as long as you don't expect 40 mpg at 70 mph through the mountains. Maybe an Explorer would better suit your needs

RE: 2004.5 Dodge 3500 towing capacity questions?

The legal towing capacity is set by the manufacturer and mods will not change that. They can make the vehicle more stable.

RE: Double Towing Length Laws

I am not aware of any jurisdiction that will allow such a setup, many require the lead trailer to be a fifth wheel. If you choose to flout the law it's only a matter of time until you are called to account, ignorance won't fly as an excuse.

RE: DRW back to SRW

I would not consider drw unless the load required it. Harder to park with the wide hips, extra cost for tires and worse than useless when empty on snow covered roads. I don't need to look like a wannabe trucker.

Venison, Sweets, Whiskey and Ale was all I understood in your post. I need to get out more. :S I'll stick to those:B

RE: Really Disappointing (T/C Weight)

You are unlikely to be pulled over and checked as you are not a commercial vehicle unless there is an obvious problem. However if you are involved in an accident it could be a whole new ball game. Weigh the truck so you have hard numbers to work with. Back in the distant past I got pulled over by the RCMP, dad's pickup was obviously overloaded with gravel. He made me turn around and drive eight miles back to the scale where I was waved through. I parked and went inside where the weighmaster asked what the problem was. I said "Ask him" as the cop came through the door. He told the cop I was obviously overloaded but he didn't care as it was a non commercial vehicle.
