  1. Jack I responded to this inquiry yesterday without taking the 10 steps necessary to actually visualize my switch . it is a part of the system monitor switchbank located behind a hinged mirror in the bathroom and adjacent to the main breaker panel.
  2. Sorry I didn't get more pictures sent out. Somewhat computer challenged and pressing health issues. More pix in a RVTrader listing for 2003 TETON FRONTIER ROYAL . Call if I can be of any more help. Roger Wilkins (907)250-4849 wilksaway@aol.com
  3. My two cents worth. We ordered a Teton new and I already knew from experience my Ford 350 dually was not enough truck. We found a 99 Stalick 4700 on this site and flew to Tuscon from Calif. to inspect it. Love at first sight. Drove it home before our Teton had been built. I don't think many were using Class 8 and 9 trucks at that time. Perhaps I was just uneducated about the possibilities. At any rate I was blissfully happy with the International. 530 cu in in line six, wet sleeve cyl. liners, turbo., 300hp, 860 fp torque, 3060 Allison trans, and 1500 rpm at 58 mph in top gear. My combined weight is 33,000 +/- . The brakes are hydraulic 15" dual caliper disc on all corners and kept my track and trailer under control down 15 miles of 8-12 % grade dropping into the peach bowl from Kamloops in BC, even though I was driving unaware that the Teton had broken a brake line somewhere along the way and the truck was doing all the braking. I found out real fast when fadeout had me in a panic at the first stop sign on the flat. That said, we do slow to 45 on long 5 to 6% uphills, and the occasional 38 or so on steeper grades. By my calcs we may add 10 minutes to a days driving in the mountains. Never bothered me, but those extra 4500 pounds of trailer will undoubtedly make a bigger dent in your uphill velocity. How much I cant say. Milage of my total experience, all miles driven for over 12 years, just under 9 mpg, little diff towing or solo. Hope this helps in your decision making process. Safe travels, Roger

    Fuel mileage

    I have a 1999 international 4700 Stalick at 13000#, 300hp, Allison 3060, towing a Teton Frontier at 20000# and 68000 mi over 12 years I average 8.95 mpg with a high of 11.6and a low of 4.4 (that tank I had fuel siphoned while parked at a church overnight).every sort of towing situation while I was part time full time. We usually managed to keep above 38mph and seldom exceeded 70. My rig is offered for sale in the rigs tows and toads for sale. Roger
  5. SAT 4/7/18 PM This truck and trailer are presently stored in Orland, California, and I reside in Brookings, Oregon, about a 5+hour drive away. I will be traveling to Orland next weekend for a family function and may be able to show or sell as necessary. I also have the original order form and sales brochures for this unit but the forum will not permit any larger files to be added to this site so pictures and literature will have to be disseminated piecemeal as demand requires them. The best and quickest way to get answers probably is via the cell number in the original listing.
  6. *****MAJOR PRICE ADJUSTMENT ***** Effective June 18,2018, the new price of these units is as follows TETON $33,000 TRUCK $35,000 obo *** The combined PRICE [ $68,000.00 ] WILL BE DROPPED $200.00 EACH DAY FORWARD UNTIL SOLD or offer to sell withdrawn by seller. Seller reserves the right to withdraw this offer at any time for any reason. If you wish to make an offer please contact me immediately. Time to settle down. We have purchased a home in Oregon and our rig is up for purchase. You wont find a better Full Time combination anywhere. All the best of Teton when the company was still family owned plus many upgrades added over the years including Onan 5000w gas gen with 18 gallon on board fuel tank, Full body paint (SIKKENS) with clear coat (Still glossy after 10 years), King RV Sleep Number bed, Xantrex 3000 watt inverter, Bose Lifestyles 5.1 surround sound with sub woofer, 46 inch Samsung led in LR, wired for two satellite recievers, side by side New Dimentions 14 Ft refrigerator/ freezer with ice maker and water filtration system (under sink), Ceiling of light, most 12 volt interior lighting converted to led, Corian countertops, HWH hydraulic leveling, Mor Ryde RE suspension, HiSpek17.5 inch wheels carrying Goodyear G114H rated commercial tires, 4- 150 watt solar panels with Tristar MPPT controller and Trimetric battery monitors, 4- Trojan 6v golf cart batteries, Electric over hydraulic TITAN disc brakes on all axels, recently converted from original electric over hydraulic drum brakes (these brakes are very effective and will stop this rig even without the help of the truck mounted 15 in dual caliper disks. Newly replaced fantastic fans in kitchen and bath areas. All systems and appliances working as they should. All original paperwork and full documentation and receipts for maintenance and upgrades including Mfg. owners manuals ( A very useful resource ). The truck is an International 4700LP 530 Navistar engine rated 300 hp with a 4060 Allison automatic transmission, Sears Elite air ride seats, Trailer Saver 32000 # hitch, just over 117,000 truck miles. These trucks up-fitted by Stalick International in Springfield, Oregon were arguably the best RV Toters ever offered and this one is still my first choice, though I admit an unsatisfied longing for a Volvo is a close 2nd. Never could justify changing what has worked so well for me these past 15 years. You should expect another 15 years or more of usefulness out of this rig with proper maintenance protocol. If It isn't listed I probably forgot it.I will try to follow up on all inquiries, though a phone call will probably get a quicker response. Would prefer to sell as unit, Teton must sell first if separated. Will deliver and set up west coast as required for expenses. I will spend a morning going over the various features and their operation and function with a new owner. Teton $33,000 Stalick $35,000 both as unit $68,000 all serious offers considered call (907) 250-484nine Will email pictures on request.
