RE: Paid Caravans to Alaska Worth it?

Even after living in the big city for a long time, I'd far rather be in Grande Prairie trying to plan a route to Dawson Creek than in Katy, TX trying to figure out the best way to pull a 39' fifth wheel through Ewe-stun to Louisiana. What a hoot! One road, divided, 2 lanes each way, Grande Prairie to Dawson Creek. Narrows and gets a bit slow at Pouce Coupe.

RE: Help with Long Term planning for Alaska

If you are looking at a truck, go to the 1 ton. Pretty much the same cost, but heavier frame and suspension. The trucks since about 2012 in 3/4 and 1-ton have a nice ride when empty, not like the old days. A light weight TT will get a real SHAKE down towing it that far. Get the heaviest built one you can. For a place to start, try Arctic Fox. There are others, maybe some better, but a place to start. Get the electric brake wires out of the axle tube and outside the tube, lashed to it firmly . Inside, they jiggle and abrade and short out. Tires need to be LT, 10 ply. Some of the construction areas have larger rock on the surface at times. Also, stiffer sidewalls add to the life if you make hard turns backing up. Avoid a rear kitchen. The back of the trailer will do some wild gyrations in the frost heave areas. Things hung in the closet may need rearranging. It can be a nice trip, as it is all paved now,unlike the mud and gravel of the 1960's. But the pavement breaks and frost heaves do mean you need to slow down.
