Great Mods ! !! You will LOVE the discs... I know I do ! !


It's sad it needs to be a "MOD" on these larger RV's especially.


Couldn't agree more ! ! Glad to see that at least SOME are offering as an option.. Let YOU choose to skimp or not..

I personally would choose to skimp on glitz, and get the IS and discs..

I went to the disc side with my other fiver, and the difference between drums, and discs on a large fiver is huge !


I agree with you guys. A triple axle should be disc brakes stock, not an option!


It's all about the journey...not the destination!

As promised, first pic of the rig on site. Maiden voyage with my Rockwood 2659WS. Pulling with my Silverado 1500, w/ bags, but pretty close to maxed out on the larger inclines here in the Ozarks. Kept speed up, but next investment will be a larger truck! 25mph+ cross winds did not help much, but it was a pretty short haul.

Took out my 5th Wheel for the first time since I bought my 2017 2500 CTD and even though I didn't go far it was enough to know how she preform, I'm planning about a 300 miles trip next month.

What was the price you guys paid to change over to disc. I was thinking about doing this but don't think I have enough green backs in the bank.

Yep, you have to sell your soul or take the bank with you. For the Titan products it was about $3,400 for triple axle.

Nor CAL, nice truck. I went out wanting a Chevy dually but could not find one on the lot so I got a Ram 3500. I know the ride is great.

Really hard to put put little Casita on wheels away for the season! Yesterday it was nearly 70 and seems today will be too, but winter is upon us here is MO, so it must be. Had a nice long season though!

Our Rockwood, all tucked in. Next reservation is April... will dream all winter of the day we can just fly South with the geese!
