Tyler Texas RV Park - Bushmans RV Park

Just south of Tyler a few miles. Absolutely one of the cleanest, most upscale RV parks Ive ever stayed in. VERY well run. And the ownership also owns Kiepersol restaurant and vinyard nearby which I would put up against ANY five star restaurant ANYWHERE. Five stars for Bushman's RV Park

RE: Additional fuel carrying capacity on pickup

My 2012 F350 crewcab DRW has a 37-gallon fuel tank. Apparently, the OP has a short bed SRW truck. Adding more fuel capacity to the truck will also increase the weight of the truck and decrease the capacity he can carry on in the bed. Before adding any additional fuel capacity, weigh the truck and trailer to see how much room you have for the fuel weight. Ken Amen to that. In my youth, I ran out and got the largest aux tank I could find and dropped it in the bed of a Chevy 2500 Duramax crew cab long bed. No thoughts as to what a 200 gallon tank of diesel would mean to me other than the fact that I could drive to the moon and back. I was eager to fill it up so I did on the way home and saw what that did to the suspension and handing. Then I penciled it out and saw that 200 gallons of diesel was 1,420 pounds, not counting the weight of the tank, and that this was probably "a bit much".. Youth... Good times...

RE: CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

OK. I ran the new Carlisle CSL 16s 550 miles at about 70-75 mph I aired them up to the max 110 and they heated up and stayed under 120 psi for the whole trip. No issues. No wobble. I had two VERY tight turns where the trailer tires were just almost pivoting and there was no issue. I am going to put about 1,000 miles on them in a week or so. Hopefully nothing to report again!!! So far very pleased...

RE: CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

Where are the Carliles made? They are made in China

Articulating TV Wall Mount For A Corner

Anyone have any recommendation or warnings about TV mounts? I have a SIDEWALL in the bedroom that has a plywood backer and I am going to mount a TV to it but it has to articulate 90 degrees FROM the wall after it is extended so I can see it from bed. Any pointers towards or away from any brand or type?

RE: CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

Got them mounted up today. Sidewalls are as stiff as a drill sergeants neck. They look great. Putting them on the road tomorrow.

CARLISLE CSL 16 TIRES

Due to a dozen different reasons related to politically contrived supply chain problems, good manufacturers suddenly moving from china to vietnam so they can turn a good brand into a bad one, unavailability in my size, etc, etc, I chose a set of four new Carlisle CSL 16 tires in ST235/80R16. G Rated, 14 ply rated, 81 mph rated M, all steel body, and from what I read it is the highest load rated tire in the Carlisle RV trailer line. Sailuns, even before the vietnam issues, were 75 mph speed rated L, so LETS SAY the CSL 16's are TECHNICALLY BETTER just for giggles. Tomato tomatto. I'll be mounting them on a new set of Raceline RCL 935 B Defender TR wheels that are rated for lots of weight too because I apparently hate having money. My 5er has a GVWR of 15,500 and a GAWR each axle 7,000. Since I don't see much on the interwebinators about this tire, I'll post a review since I'll be putting 1,500 miles on them immediately. Hopefully the review will be "They're tires man. Why are we talking about tires so much?"

RE: Sailun Tires

The OE tires that came on my trailer are Goodyear G614's. They've been good tires but double the cost?More like triple the cost, I've been seeing well over $400 for them. And if they made them in my size, I would have gladly paid that for them. Ive never had a trailer tire blow out, but YouToob is filled with videos of RV people that had simple tread separation, and the side of their trailer looked like an 18 wheeler full of Chinese whoopee cushions plunged off The Golden Gate Bridge and landed on their fender flare.

RE: Sailun Tires

Bayley; I scrubbed the internet to find out from multiple forums the following information: Of reported Sailun failures on various forums, the following dates codes were reported: 2320,3520,4020,4020,4120. I found reports of three other failures where no date code was provided. All of these were Vietnam tires. I went to my local tire shop last week and the Sailuns were date coded 2621 from Vietnam fwiw. Therefore, I would hope that you are right. Perhaps 2021 tires are GTG, despite the natural fact that 2020 Sailuns have more cumulative miles and therefore more opportunities to fail. Time will tell. I went with Carlisle CSL 16 instead. G rated. 81 mph rated. 14 ply rating. Its all a gamble. All tires today are trash, especially trailer tires. Leave it up to the Chicoms to ruin the ONLY reliable G rated trailer tire on the market.

RE: Sailun S637 Suddenly Impossible To Find

What is your actual load on your tires? What size and load range came on your RV? So the trailer is a 2022 Cruiser South Fork 3850BH and it says in the sticker that the GVWR is 15,500 The tires that came with it are F load rated and says 12 ply rating but then it also says the actual number of plys and they add up to 8 From what I understand, the Sailuns are G load and 14 ply rated. I just dont want any problems and am willing to pay for the insurance they would cost

Sailun S637 Suddenly Impossible To Find

So many people rave about them. Then the Chinese factory moves to Vietnam and they start getting a maypop review here and there. Despite that, I tried to source some. The sailun website lists a map of places you can get some. NONE of them actually carry them. All the normal sources online dont carry them anymore either Not supply chain problems, just not carrying them anymore. Anyone else see this?

Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

The Trailer King RST+ tires my 5er came with are ST235/80R16 which is a F load rating. The fact that they are factory tires makes me nervous. And the fact that they are F rated makes me nervous. Sailuns are apparently bad now from Vietnam, at least this batch. Only thing my Discount Tire can get in my size is a Carlisle 14 ply G rated. Am I moving up with this swap or does Carlisle have a bad rap?

Best RV King Size Bed

Looking to replace the stack of plywood that Heartland calls a "bed" that came with my new 5'er. What would you recommend? At home we sleep on a Tempur-Pedic because at some point in my life someone started charging 1 million dollars for a bed and everyone thinks thats normal now.

BUYING NEW RV OUT-OF-STATE -- ANY TAX PLUS OR MINUS???

The only place I can see that has the RV I want is just over the state line. I dont think they charge sales tax if you buy it out of state, but when I go to have it titled in my state, the DMV charges sales tax at that point. Is that a correct understanding? I dont think there is an advantage, but I do want to make double sure that I am not DOUBLE taxed.

Heartland Milestone 386 BH - Thoughts?

Looking at one thats about $53k new Wondering if anyone has one. I heard that if the refrigerator goes out they have to remove a slide. Looks like the window would come out. Also, is that kitchen too small to be worth anything? Any feedback is appreciated.
