RE: Freightliner M2 106 Sport Chassis (tow weight)

We live in Florida and have a 2nd home in Tennessee. We will have to check which state it will be better to tag.

Freightliner M2 106 Sport Chassis (tow weight)

We are looking at a Luxe 5th wheel toy hauler that has a weight of 26,000 lbs and our SXS is 2,000 lbs. Plus the toy hauler holds 60 gallons of fuel for the generator. We are getting conflicting info from dealers regarding how much weight it can pull. Some say 23,000 lbs and others say 30,000 lbs for the same M2 106 350 hp. Anyone know the truth?

RE: RV trip 14 nights itinerary help

Since we will be in a truck and travel trailer we will leave the TT at the campground and take the truck out daily to activities. Since we are in a truck can we get to Independence Mine from Willow on our most updated itinerary that I posted? (The latest one is heading South first then North.

RE: RV trip 14 nights itinerary help

I revised the trip a bit so hoping this isn't too much driving like my first post. Actually Day 1 will be us flying in from Fl and staying in a hotel for the night to catch up on time change. Then we can pick up the RV or truck/travel trailer the following morning. Day 1 fly into Anchorage, pick up RV, get groceries then drive to Matanuska Glacier. – Glacier hike and zipline –micaguides.com Day 2 Drive to Talkeetna – shopping/lunch Day 3 Drive to Denali National Park – Denali Grizzy Bear Campgound- need reservations- ATV tour in the afternoon Day 4 Shuttle, bus or hike Day 5 Drive from Denali to Wasilla or Willow- snowhookadvenures.com (dog sledding) Day 6 Drive to Portage/Girwood – 26 glaciers boat tour Day 7 Drive to Seward - possible afternoon fishing trip? Day 8 Day cruise Kenai National Park Day 9 Seward to Homer Day 10 Alaskabearviewing.com in Katmai Day 11 Fishing trip/walk around town Day 12 Homer to Cooper Landing (Kanai Princess RV Park-need reservation and hike to Russian River falls to see salmon spawning upsteam and fishing with a license) Day 13 Cooper Landing back to Anchorage

RV trip 14 nights itinerary help

We have owned both motorhomes and travel trailers in the past.  All the RV rentals places in Anchorage will not allow you to tow a car so we are thinking we will rent a truck and trailer trailer (though private owner) so we have a vehicle to get around.  Thought on this please.  Also this is the 2nd attempt at an itinerary.  Should we add/delete anything? Are we staying too long or not long enough in each place? Any driving distances from place to place too long? The only reason we are considering swinging over to Matanuska is because I read on a TA forum that the scenery is beautiful but haven't seen anyone else mention it.  Also considering staying 2 nights instead of 3 in Denali. Day 1 fly into Anchorage, pick up RV, get groceries then drive to Matanuska Glacier. Day 2 Glacier Hike and Zipline Day 3 Drive to Denali National Park - ATV tour in the afternoon Day 4 Shuttle, bus or hike Day 5 Dog sled and more time in the park Day 6 Drive from Denali to Talkeetna - activity in the afternoon Day 7 Drive to Portage - activity in the afternoon Day 8 Drive to Seward - possible afternoon fishing trip? Day 9 Day cruise Day 10 Kenai National Park Day 11 Seward to Homer Day 12 - Bear viewing in Katmai Day 13 Homer to Cooper Landing Day 14 Cooper Landing back to Anchorage
