RE: I like it!

I have slide outs so the stairs don't extend that much farther. Although I was able to clock truck and trailer so I could use rear entry stairs, side entry is more convenient. We do not camp streetside, so extending the stairs and putting the stairs back up when at curb is not an issue.

RE: Long Bed vs Bigger Overhang - off - roading

I would look for a 9' camper on a long bed and remove the jacks so they do not snag.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Currently, I have the 225's with 4.44 gearing. My Toyo's are 245's which will make cruising RPM a little less. 65 mph is 2000 rpm in stock trim. What width rims are you running? I have 6" width rims, but 245's will fit them. About 1900 RPM in 6th gear at 65 mph and 2300 RPM in 5th gear. At 17.5k lbs GVW, I did not feel a loss in power. I won't have my trailer in tow until December to know how it feels with an additional 7k lb load.

RE: Jack Misbehaving

Your fuse may also have a hairline crack that was pushed back together when reseating it. I had a batch of glass fuses that let go inside the end cap and would show good until you put a load on them - The same can happen in the plastic modular style.

RE: Never saw this before!

Sadly, I pay for weight even on a scooter. My state passed a registration fee cap by voters, so now they just add other fees they claim are not registration but still required to renew tags.

RE: Nor Cold 2 way??

My DC evaporate fridge would maintain cool but took too long to actually drop temperatures. I only used it where propane had to be shut off, like ferries and tunnels. This round of RV, I skipped that option but may look into a DC compressor the next time.

RE: Looking for options

Northstar, Bigfoot and Northern Lite are some additional brands you should compare.

RE: Prepping for below freezing temps and snow.

I am hoping to build a shop like that next year. One more winter with things uncovered...

RE: Extended warranty experiences

So the question I have is why someone would buy something with questionable reliability and then have to bandaid the purchase with an extended warranty. At least in my view, I would look at purchasing something that worried me less about failure.

RE: Extended warranty experiences

My belief is that to purchase an extended warranty, you do do not have confidence in the durability of the product you purchased. As others pointed out, companies are out there to make profit and will set the cost higher than payout. You will always be betting against "the house" odds and be better to bank that money yourself.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

No, mine is a 2018 delivered in 2017 and I have not seen any Host's with center markers up front. They do have the ones in the rear.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

If your camper does not have them, you truck should so you are legal based on width. Camper manufacturers targeting the SRW market need something in place to keep lighting in compliance but not those selling to the DRW owners.

RE: Regrets with 19.5" tires? Places you havent been able to go?

I just received a seven new 245/70r19.5 Toyo's to replace my 7 year old OEM tires. After 65k miles, the Continental's still have healthy tread but are being replaced due to age. I never had to use the spare, but it is also getting replaced.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

I have a tower of Toyo M655's sitting in the garage waiting to be mounted. We are spending some time on the Oregon Coastal Dunes and will try to get this done between trips. 7 by 82 lbs is much easier to move around on a furniture dolly than rolling one at a time.

RE: Regrets with 19.5" tires? Places you havent been able to go?

19.5's have plenty of traction tread but do not have flotation. If you are in deep snow or soft sand, LT tires are better. I am on my second truck now with 19.5's and know the limitations but will not give up the durability and load carrying ability.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

Make sure the camper is sitting level in the bed. If it is uneven on one corner, it may be twisting the frame. You can check this out by disconnecting the turnbuckles and raising the camper slightly off the bed. If the door now clears the opening, start looking what may be between the camper and truck that is causing it to twist.

RE: RV Dealers think new campers are junk

As a dealer, you have a choice of which products you sell and then have to service/repair. If you feel that the product is so sub par that it hurts margins or the reputation of your dealership, why would you carry it?

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Most truck campers have those lights, but Host assumes your truck will have them and does not have the center lights on their units (yes, I asked). If Raptors and Rebels and other over width SRW vehicles can run them in the grill as OEM, I don't know why a DRW could not. You see the center light option on narrower SRW's because if you tow a wider flatbed or dump trailer, you should also have them. Since there is no trailer location for these lights, the truck should be carrying the lights.
