RE: Leaving Camper on the Jacks

If you have the blocks already I'd use them. When mine isn't on the truck its on cinder blocks. Just less stress on the camper.

RE: Extended Dealer Warranty

About 85% of the cost of extended warrantees are pure profit for the seller.

RE: Sticky when asked which truck is best to haul camper.

IMO the sticky that is needed should cover estimating actual weight beginning from the information provided by manufacturers. New buyers often miss highly important details. For example many times manufacturer's specs do not include the weight for common accessories such as awnings. New buyers are also likely to greatly underestimate the wet weight and weight of food, cooking gear, clothing, tools, etc. These considerations can be important for any RV but more so for truck campers where rear axle weights often exceed tire load ratings. That would be a good one too. My post was more tongue in cheek than anything.

RE: Sticky when asked which truck is best to haul camper.

Just fyi, Montana calls my F450 ... 1 1/2 tons. :D Yeah, I still have the same TC that I carried on my F350 SRW both with and without 19.5s. I figured that's what they are. 1 1/2 tons.

RE: How often do your remove the camper from the truck?

You will get answers that cover the entire range, from people who never take their camper off and can't fathom anyone that would ever take their camper off, to others who take their camper off every time they stop and can't fathom anyone who would ever leave their camper on. Well said. :B I took mine off my truck twice last year. It went back on a few weeks ago.

RE: Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

The SxS argument is a bit worn out. Expensive? Yup, very expensive. Compared to 2 new top of the line snowmachines or 2 new top of the line quads, it's in line with the market and the 4 seaters can haul your whole family. If you want to go poking along a trail, doing some off roading, a Jeep is a better value. But if you want essentially the best combination of Baja 1000/King of Hammers and peel your face off power, you have to pay for it. I don't have the time or place for one a hot rod SxS yet, but it's on the short list of fun toys to buy when the time comes. They are ridiculously fun and capable. And the suspensions alone are worth the price of admission. You couldn't build one for the same price, likely. I have zero interest in any SxS, Jeep or Bronco. :B

RE: Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

and Jeep to be a bit more humble with their prices. https://i.postimg.cc/V6GFZ0MP/canam.jpg 2021 Can-Am MAVERICK X3 MAX X RS TURBO RR $30,399.00 https://i.postimg.cc/JhK3tHpH/jeep2.jpg 2021 Jeep Wrangler from $28,475 The Can Am is the top of the line and the Jeep is the bottom, but I think its the OHVs that are ridiculously priced and not soo much Jeeps.

RE: Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

The articulation shot was a great example of solid axles vs independent suspension. Rear flexed great, front flexed almost none. 99% of buyers won't care, of course. Not much flexing needed to run to Costco. I read somewhere that about 3% of Jeep owners actually take them off road other than just down a dirt road. I'm sure the numbers for the new Bronco will be about the same. There is a two year back order for a new Bronco already.

RE: Off Roading with the 2021 Bronco

https://i.postimg.cc/rwCKTkHm/Bronco-new.jpg These pictures were taken at my friend's, the guy on the far left - home this past Aug. Brad Lovell has been testing these Broncos for three years. They called Geof and asked him if he and his wife could fix the team dinner on there way to Moab from the Rubicon Trail. They did not want to stop in town and draw a crowd. https://i.postimg.cc/QM8vM2XS/Bronco-new1.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/c1g26MSq/Bronco-new2.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/ZqNvCMVB/Bronco-new3.jpg They let Geof sit in them and they spent some time showing them off to him. They wouldn't let him take pictures of the interior full of testing equipment and they never let him see un the hood of any of them. My friend has been on the pit crew of Amzoil Racing during the Baja 1000.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

https://i.postimg.cc/SsBWRZ1Z/IMG-4690.jpg I gave the mattress a few days to finish expanding and them my Beddy's bed set back on. https://i.postimg.cc/0yjbgYcr/IMG-4703.jpg I turned on the propane to check things out. After a bit I came back out to the shop and could smell the propane inside the camper. I replaced a check valve and in the process fixed the leak.

RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck

So someone posts that they still run and love their old 7.3 and it turns into a bashing and comparison to the new 6.7. Seems like just about every thread goes south for some reason. :S
