RE: Moles

Best mole trap I ever used. Killing grubs may help a little but Moles will eat worms too.

RE: Truck Camper - Newbie Needs Advice

Just a FYI MOST Truck Campers weigh A LOT more then what the brochures or even the tag on the camper say they do.

RE: Truck Camper and TT Combo

Went to the scales today. My steer axle is 5,240 lbs and my drive axle is 3,320 lbs. Full tank of diesel. Gross 8,560 lbs. Definitely a good thing I went and now I understand the numbers a bit better. Now I just need to find someone to trade their DRW for my SRW... That seems heavy to me. My 03 dually weighs less and I am heavy myself.

RE: Truck Camper and TT Combo

First I would be extremely cautious about manufacturer's weights. That 4700# wet weight may not include accessories. For my RV the missing accessories included the A/C unit, solar panels, additional battery, awnings and more. Even if you want to keep any storage in the TC to a minimum, you can easily add another 500# for cooking gear, refrigerator items, minimum amounts of food, clothing, etc. Anyway the details hardly matter you will be way overweight: 4300# load capacity, minus 350# for two passengers, minus 4700# wet weight, minus 700 tongue weight, minus 500 gear, minus 200 bed mat, tiedown brackets and fastguns. You will be 2200# overweight and almost all of that will be on the rear axle greatly exceeding the tire and wheel load ratings. 200 lbs for a bed mat?

RE: Buying a New TC Hauler

Sweet rig! But whyyyy do mfgs continue putting wood grain in the luxury model pickups? Nothing against your truck, it's bad @ss, but cmon, there's about a dozen different high end finishes now that don't scream 1977 Cadillac! At least it looks better than the wood grain in the new Ram Laramies. Let me guess you one of those that likes to paint all the nice wood in a house white.

RE: Dodge 1999 3500 Lamarie dually

You don't want to buy it's truck. I have known a few people with the v10 and they were money pits always had some problem. Also v10 parts can be hard to find or not available at all. Research that v10 on some Dodge truck forums before you buy.

RE: I Went Camping With Five Girls!

I live in northern Illinois and I have never been to any of these places. We say we want to go but never seem to get there.

RE: Just bought Truck Camper- how do I move

Did you ask the seller if they could deliver it to you?

RE: Cooper tire failure at 65mph - now what?

I bought my truck used with newer Toyo tires on it. Last year driving down the highway something broke and I had a bubble across the tread of the tire. There was nothing in the road and I did not hit any pot holes it just happened all of the sudden. I emailed Toyo and they were no help. I will never buy a TOYO tire.

RE: Do most parks check/copy your ID? (Victims of ID theft)

I don't have a problem showing my ID but I will not let people make copies of it.

RE: Hauler to get my trailer from Florida to Canada?

The question is do you ever plan on going back there? If not it makes sense to ship it back or sell as is. If you plan on going back you should be able to find cheaper storage. If you ship it back and decide to go back you will have to double tow (if able)have it shipped back or make two trips.

RE: Tie-down systems performance/safety vs cost

Not sure if you are on facebook but I see a lot of used Torklift products for sale there. example

RE: Torklift Ram Dually adapter kit #A7004 help!

All depends on your setup. I have a 2003 and I don't use the kit. Maybe if you post your truck and camper info someone might have the same set up and tell you if they use it.

RE: Project B.I.G. Built-in Inverter Generator

Nice project. Hope it works out well for you.

RE: Project B.I.G. Built-in Inverter Generator

I have often thought why camper manufacturers do not at least offer this type of gen set as an option. It is all about liability. The other mfg's like Honda don't make a built in generator. As far as I know Onan is the only one selling a built in generator. People don't realize how much the cost of product liability insurance is.

RE: My Sprinter stealth ClasB

If you want to heat your water while driving you can also look into a heat exchanger using the engine to heat your water.

RE: Best Inverter Generator under $500 for a TC

I think if I had a one Honda 2000 generator and wanted a second generator I would spend the extra money to get a second Honda to be able to parallel them if needed.

RE: Tie downs

Well if this is 8 hours away make sure you get that tape measure out before you go. You need to measure the height of your bed side rails and also the height of your cap from the bed floor. Have the seller measure the camper for those areas so you know if it will fit. Many people have to build risers for their campers so they fit in the bed of the truck. You will also want to bring a board to put across the front of your bed for the camper bumpers push against the board and not damage your nice new bed. A rubber mat in the bed is also recommended by most to help keep the camper from sliding around. A plastic bed liner is NOT recommended by most.

RE: Tie downs

One of the first things you need to know is that the posted weight on most truck campers is way off. They are usually a lot heavier.
