    I'm not sure where to post this

    Our Newmar weighs 18.6k empty. When we bought it it was 1-1/2 years old. The guy who bought it new left the dealer with a 3/4 ton, returned 15 months later with a 1 ton and traded it in on a Motor Home. He said to much trailer for the truck.

    Value of Truck

    I'm thinking about going from MDT with 5th wheel to Motor home. Does anyone know where I can find the fair market value of my truck. I've looked around the internet some to no avail. I've looked on a few truck for sale sites, but thats not a good reference. Any help is appreciated.

    They are tall! The Ruby has a much better transfer case. I've read the 3.6 likes high rpm. It's jumps on takeoff very well, can't imagine how it will do with 4.88s & 35" tires. I stuck my 60hp Kubota 4x4 tractor so deep the bushhog was on the ground and it pulled it out.

    It's a 2012. 3.6 auto. If I remember correctly it"s the only ratio in the sport. Might be incorrect.It works wit 32" tires but I know it will be to tall for 35s. They would work with a LS3 and a 6L80E. But then I would need Dana 60s Front and rear.

    Ford calls there 250 Super duty, maybe this is VWs version of a MDSUV. How does the Ruby do on fuel with 4.10s and 35s? I have the Sport with 32/3.21 gears. Going to 35s/4.10s maybe 4.56s in a few months. Concerned at hwy speeds 4.88s will have the motor screaming.

    I wish I had taken a pic of the hitch to see if it was a 2" receiver or a 1" with a adapter. Such a liability issue.

    Whats bad is he was at least 4 times the tow cap of the SUV. I doubt he could get the tranny out of 3rd gear unless coasting. My JK won't stay in OD with 3k lb behind it.

    I've pulled my share of stupid stunts, one if I told you I don't think anyone would believe and survived! So now I try to play it safe.

    I thought it was a prank until I pulled up beside it and saw it was hooked up to a weight distrubting hitch with sway controllers. I looked up the tow capacity of it and it's 1500 lb! My Wrangler JK has a higher towing capacity. I thought ya'll might get a laugh or scare.

    We were in Collingwood Ontario in September and saw this setup in the Walmart parking lot. Guess they have lightened up Airstream Trailers sense 1977. Our first Tavel Trailer was a 1977 31' Excela. It weight 8300 lb loaded. The TV is a Volkswagen Tiguan.
