RE: VanLeigh by Tiffin Fifth wheel

Does anyone have experience with this type of fifth wheel? I’m wanting to know if it’s a quality product since Tiffin is the manufacture. While e do not own one we have been in several and they seam to be well built. We have also chatted with a few owners and all seam to be happy....

Any help is appreciated. Thanks, David Michigan It will look something like this - 0918... Ninth Week ( 09 ) of 2018 ( 18) -

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

*** AND FOR THE RECORD **** There is NOTHING wrong with installing windows! Just do not think you need a diploma from a HUGE/Expensive college ( Drexel ) or such to do said work.... way back 40 years ago my best friend in school went to college to become a Metallurgical engineer.. for the first 10-15 years after graduating he was making tags for clothes at some shop in Ohio.??? Me,, I had co-op in my senior year, left school at 10 am to go to work... skipped college, worked 2-3 jobs to keep thing straight and the beer supply flowing

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Well there is this. "According to a new survey from Bankrate, 53% of Americans have had to delay milestones such as home improvements and renovations as well as buying or leasing a car." And this is why I'm encouraging my kids to pick careers that are as "economy proof" as possible. Something I didn't realize when I was their age, but fortunately chose wisely, unintentionally. I'm just sitting here waiting to capitalize on the upcoming recession... I know MANY kids who HAD TO GO to big name college's for their degree, only to get a job out of their study field and triple digit debt. Our good friends daughter just got married, between the 2 of them, they have close to $200,000 in school loans... He is now installing windows.. I told my kids the same a Grit... They BOTH went to Community College first and transferred credits after.. They both graduated with zero debt and 1 (29 ) is now a lead nurse and the other (24 ) an accountant..

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

It's a GOOD feeling, having wealthy forum friends, that could help me out in a time of need!!!:B Jerry Well Jerry, I don’t usually go around giving people money for no reason, BUT there are a select few on here that I had gotten to know that I would help if really needed…. And in my eyes, wealth is measured by friendships weather be online or in person…

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

I can't imagine the price for converting a trailer to that system... :EThink of a lot, then add another decimal point. :) My last install was in 2019 and it was $6400.00 all in for both, that included install, and Timken bearing upgrade. I understand that the prices have now jumped, and Morryde was booking out as far as Q3 2023 or later for installs… The other benefit is that the measure your tow vehicle and trailer in several places before the install, they make the proper subframe and add it so the unit will be 100% level once install is complete.

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

Morryde also offers cheaper versions, like the Sre 4000… our second redwood fifth wheel came stock with that and we seriously contemplated keeping that and just adding the disc brakes. Ultimately we ended up with everything. The SRE 4000 gives you I believe four or 4 1/2 inches of travel. Your coach still has all of the original other suspension parts including springs bolts shackles spring perch

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

As you can see, not only do you gain braking power, you eliminate possibe future issues by getting rid of the axle tube, springs, shackles, equlizer, u-bolts, shackle bolts, ect…. https://i.imgur.com/aqMqBsQl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/pJJZAQUl.jpg

RE: MorRyde IS & Disc Brakes

This is the 3rd larger Fifth wheel that we have had the IS and discs on… My wife is real good at not wanting to spend a buck , especially on things that she does not care to know how they work…. After the 1st one, she said to me that “ she would never want to own a fifth wheel without the IS and discs”…. thats huge coming from her….. our 2016 Redwood was totaled ( had the IS ) and when we got the 2020 from the factory, we had the IS installed before we did anything…. We do leave out coffee maker and salt and pepper on the counter during travel… Just our opinion..

Timken Bearings

Just an FYI... I know this has been discussed at great length already, but .... I needed an extra set of bearings # 02475 and #25580.. went on Amazon and got 1 of each.. BOTH are stamped made in the USA.. The outside of the 25580 box NOW says: Made in the USA W/US and imported content The 02475 box says USA.. OK, that's my public Service Announcement for the day ! :B

RE: Stops Catalytic Converter thefts! (inexpensive method)

We keep a newer Ford Escape here at our offices for anyone to use on Company business.. Just last Sunday it had the converter stolen. We watched the cameras, they drove up our street on their motorcycle with no lights, came in the driveway and parked right next to the car. 3-4 minutes later they drove off with no lights on... it was 5:30 AM and we could NOT get a clear view of the plate on the bike, or the person.... We welded a straight pipe in place of it for now. $3k to replace and 6 weeks for parts

RE: rv towing companies

I used a service back in 2019 sending my fiver back to Indiana... I found that it was about 1/2 the cost sending it BACK to Indiana as they usually are dead heading that way anyway... From Eastern PA to Indiana was $1000.... From Indiana back to PA was just a skoosh over $2000 I used Synergy Transport and they were AWESOME to deal with

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

Pbutler97 - I've learned over the past 2 years that IF a dealer has that generic photo of a vehicle in front of a rail car, that its ON ORDER, and or in transit... Extended inventory is a fancy way of saying, we will find it and pay top dollar for dealer trade for you ! !
