RE: Firestone Ride-Rite Airspring Defective Design Bent Brackets

Glad you found something that will work. It sounds like you overloaded your truck and found the limitations of it. If you are 1300 dry, my guess is you are way more than that wet. Air bags don’t add capability they simply can make the rig level. What did Ride-Rite say about the brackets since you aren’t using them any more?

RE: Replacing gas regulator and hoses

That’s too bad that it didn’t fit the other way, but glad you got it fixed.

RE: next after Upper Stableloads? Jittery ride on rough pavement

Also my Ford is a bit floppier in the frame department than my Dodge there seems to be a lot more “vibration and harshness” through to the cab on certain roads. A little more info (sig line) would be helpful. Is this an F150? I’m not sure that would help. No Ford is supposed to be floppy. :D

RE: Who can be the last poster?

I agree. See it in person. :D We had the storm, btw. I plowed for a while with my Ranger including the community gravel road. We got about 8 inches with some drifting. Just enough to need the plowing, but I’m done at last.

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Yes, a snow storm. It already started and will be going until sometime Saturday. This view is from a couple of days ago. It wasn’t quite all gone before this storm started. In my area, our average is just over 20 inches per year, but we got that in a day a couple of years ago. https://i.imgur.com/12Xxjrpl.jpg

Last day before the bigger storm gets here.

RE: next after Upper Stableloads? Jittery ride on rough pavement

Air pressure is even easier and cheaper. I read the article, but basically, he said it felt better which is about the same as every other person. But, maybe you feel like you two have the same symptoms.

RE: next after Upper Stableloads? Jittery ride on rough pavement

Two suggestions one is free one is not. Assuming you are running 65 front and 80 rear, try 70 then 75 in the front. The nonfree fix I suggest is a shock change.

Significant snow at last.

RE: Aluminum Frame vs Wood Frame for washboard roads.

There’s plenty of both aluminum and wood frames that break or have broken. I don’t think that’s a good part of the decision either. I think it’s likely a clamshell design would hold up better which is fine as long you don’t want a slide. On the plus side, they are usually really well insulated. Other than that, slow down and have good shocks and good suspension. My 14 year old camper is still going strong even with slides. There are many on here that have older models of other brands that have done well also.

RE: I Went Camping With Five Girls!

Looks like a great trip. Thanks for posting.

Oh no, hopefully you won't be last on the repair list.

RE: Arctic Fox Says no off road????

Then why is one of the top 5 "advantages" of a TC, is that it can "off-road?" Not for me. I made a thread, btw. ;)

What are the top 5 advantages of a TC?

Feel free to add your list of the top 5 advantages of a TC. Here are mine. 1. Able to pull a significant trailer. 2. Can park in many parking lots, so it travels well. 3. Have my kitchen/bed/bathroom/bed with me. 4. Easy to get campground spaces due to short length. 5. Good for winter since it is on my 4 wheel drive truck

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Back in the day, I checked email. Calls were rare. Retired now. No, I don’t miss it.

RE: Who can be the last poster?

It’s nice of you to be a good sport about being last.

RE: Halloween Or Not

We’ll be ready, but we’ve never had a trick or treater where we live now.

RE: Considering building camper from scratch...

I guess if you need a hobby it’s fine. Otherwise, I don’t think it makes sense to rebuild using old components. I don’t think it’s likely to be strong enough for doing true offroad. You’ll bend the truck frame as well when you carry significant weight. Any way, look at all of the available floor plans for ideas on what you can cut out to make it simple. Finally, many products are expensive right now with wood products up to double what they were this time last year.

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Blame it on 2020, Kentucky beat Tennessee. Congrats Kentucky fans. On the plus side, it was bad enough that Tennessee coach finally put in Harrison Bailey who played pretty well even if he only had one series.
