RE: Torklift tie down maintenance

Hey nice to see someone else from the Chicago area has a Truck Camper. They are not common around here

RE: Moles

Best mole trap I ever used. Killing grubs may help a little but Moles will eat worms too. https://www.ruralking.com/catalog/product/view/id/23118

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.
