RE: Is this a problem?

After just doing a roof they use a cloth tape on the joints of OSB to keep it from wearing a spot through the roof, same with the sides of a trailer where the roof joins. After looking at it doesn't look wide enough for the cloth tape.

RE: Floor heights

It depends on the trailer. Some are built with the floor level above the tires and some that are lower to the ground have wheel wells on the inside of the trailer.

RE: She still has it!

I beleive Lantley can speak for himself. He made a condescending comment and I called him on it. Have anymore snide remarks? I believe he did, and I am supporting his comments. To underscore what was already stated, if you think his comments were "condescending" then you need you need fewer prunes or whatever it is in your diet that's making you pucker so much.The comments were real welcoming to a new member with some good news especially for him. Then people start piling on hateful comments. It use to be RV forum was helpful to new members, not so much anymore. Then people wonder why new members don't stick around You can make all the derogatory comments you want about me if it makes you feel better.

RE: She still has it!

Do you derive some perverted pleasure running down other people? Just to set the record straight, I've met Lantley personally and he is not that guy, so back it up a little. I'm not sure if the OP's post was a typo, or he meant to use the plural "happy 6.0 owners" like there are more than one....I beleive Lantley can speak for himself. He made a condescending comment and I called him on it. Have anymore snide remarks?

RE: Most American made truck

For 2020 I seen a article that stated the new Ford Ranger was the highest American content according to Forbes.

RE: Been away for a while

It all depends on your abilities. Like another poster said some people are very capable at a older age and some are very frail at a much younger age. It's up to you to judge your abilities.

RE: She still has it!

Glad to hear you guys are enjoying your 6.0's. This thread is only made possible by the poor performance and notorious reputation of the 6.0. The fact that it is a news worthy item that a 6.0 is working properly speaks volumes. It is not news that a Cummins or Duramax of the same era are still getting the job done.I'm not under any illusion of what the 6.0 is hence the poor resell value. I can't afford to piss money off on a new truck when mine is still running. With weak resell I'll run it till it grenades. Do you derive some perverted pleasure running down other people? If you feel my post somehow ran you down, you are taking this forum way too seriously! If you're happy with your 6.0 PSD I am happy for you.Owning a 6.0 is like owning a Lippert framed RV. Clint Eastwood said it best (Do you feel lucky punk). Now when you own a 6.0 and a Lippert framed RV the odds are against you. I'm greatful that neither has given me problems, so far.

I beleive the Duramax had its growing pains as well. Early ones had injector problems and another generation had overheating issues. Cummins had issues with a killer dowl pin and 5th gear in the manual transmission so they weren't exactly problem-free either.

RE: She still has it!

OP here I originally posted this in 2016 with 240,xxx miles on the truck. It's 2020 and today on a trip to Ocean Shores I I hit 350,000 miles and still going strong. In the last hundred thousand plus miles I have replaced one rear axel seal, IPR valve and one fuel injector. Everything else is still factory on the truck. Right now I'm towing about 10,000 pounds with 2400 miles this summer alone. Every time I think about a new truck I stop because this old girl is paid for and still doing the job well.Not only that they have very little resell value. I own two 6.0's and will run them till they drop. I did put coolant filters on both trucks.

RE: Walkable TT roof

Almost all junk single axle newbie trailers have ac on side walls as dead giveaway to non load bearing non walkable roof. 4 letter word: J U N K.While I don't dispute the term junk the construction is the same as larger trailers with 1.5x1.5 rafters. They went to window A/C because the cost is about a third of what a rooftop A/C would cost the company.

RE: Losing the camper for the fall

BIL just retired from the University there. I like Rivers park the best. Oak park seemed ok but sites weren't very level. Was told they will be trying to level the sites in the future.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

I would be willing to bet the majority of them will never go off road or a gravel road at most. There is a bunch of Rubicon Jeeps in town that have never seen a trail.

RE: Losing the camper for the fall

where is campus? i know up here i wouldnt be putting my kids in a camper for the fall/winter. they would have a bad time. Same thought ... It might work for a short fall semester where they plan August through October in-person and Nov-Dec online. But wintering in the North, in a camper, it is possible but not easy, and not cheap. South GA, about 10 miles from the Florida line. Staying warm will not be a problem, getting hot could be :)Valdosta? Several rv parks in the area. Had to run the A/C there last December.

RE: Floor bounce

Don't know how the Rockwood ultralight floor is constructed but mine was 2 sheets of luan with foam inbetween. I didn't like the spongy floor and traded a new camper after one trip.

RE: Losing the camper for the fall

My daughter will be a sophomore in college this fall, and here school is reducing the number of kids in the dorms, so my daughter has lost her room for fall. So looks like we are going to take the camper to a campground close to her school for the fall semester. She’s excited as she loves the camper, but I’m a little bummed we won’t be camping. It’s probably the best option, she will not be as exposed as if she was in a dorm, and it’s better than getting stuck in a 12 month apartment lease is schools have to shut down again.Think that is a excellent idea, your lucky to have that option.

RE: Quadruples ?

Most states he would be over length as well. I know KS has made people over length drop whats towed to bring it into compliance. It looks like this guy would have to make a few trips. I wonder about brakes as well. I beleive that would be classified as a triple tow. I see a lot of semi's towing two trailers now days as well.
