    Just statistics.........

    If I read your question correctly, a yes answer would mean that we have never owned or drove a semi truck before we got our HDT. If so, then YES for us.

    Length Limits in Campgrounds

    We have, but each park is different so some can handle them and others not, same as regular campgrounds. They may also only have a limited number of larger sites.
  3. We just ordered a set of 7 with Aluminum wheels from Trailer and Wheel .com on Tuesday. They shipped out on Wednesday from Ohio. Mounted on the wheels with caps and lugnuts, the price including freight was less when we called and talked to them than they were for their online price with free shipping. They are suppose to arrive at the freight place on Monday, latest tracking shows they are in Charlotte so might even be here in South Carolina tomorrow. Dave

    Vanleigh Fifth wheels

    We saw a few at a dealer in North Carolina a few weeks ago, we were doing more just general looking so did not look at them real close and liked what we saw. We did like a few of the floor plans especially the front bath models. They appear to have only been making the 5th wheels for a few years and we would like to hear from some one that has owned one also. Dave

    Car Hauler W/Living Quarters Question

    Thanks. We traded the old trailer in. It was a 2005 and we had over 100,000 miles on it doing car shows all over the country. It only had triple 5200# axles and we were limited in what size tire we could run so we went thru alot of tires. It might show up on Trailers of the East Coast website in the near future. The only time we noticed any fumes was when we had a gas leak on our generator which was in a compartment in the garage right by the door. Dave

    Car Hauler W/Living Quarters Question

    Thanks. We only wished this one had a Slideout, about 3' longer in the living area and a pass thru door from the living quarters to the garage. Our old trailer had the pass thru door and we used it a lot.

    Garmin RV770LMTS vs. Garmin dezl770LMTHD

    I think the RV model needs you to connect you phone to it to get live traffic updates. We just bought a dezl at a TA which had a rebate.

    Car Hauler W/Living Quarters Question

    Dean, As others have mentioned, we haul a full size van in our living quarters trailer. We just got rid of our 44' and bought a 48' as a temporary trailer till we can get one built. In our case it is hard to find a trailer that has nice living quarters with a slide out that will handle a 5700# vehicle the size of our van. You should have an easier search for one that fits your vehicle. ATC and Sundowner make some nice nice aluminum trailers. Vintage and Millennium basically build similar trailers with steel frames, but their interiors are not very nice. Cargomate/Continental Cargo are not building anymore slideout trailers. Spacecraft builds a nice trailer but very costly and in our case they could only handle our weight in a Semi Chassis. Transport Custom Design is a custom trailer builder that looks like they build a nice trailer. I did not have much luck getting any pricing from Featherlite and a few others. There are a couple of RV toy hauler that can handle your size vehicle, I will see if I can find my list of those. I could not find any that would work for us. Alot will depend on what your budget is and what your tow vehicle can handle. Dave

    Davco 380 Fuel Filter Change

    Have about a gallon of fresh diesel to add to the new filter through the top of the glass bowl. Dave

    And so it begins...HDT home, ECR 2019, destination full time.

    We will be at the ECR and you are both welcome to stop and see our setup and take it for drive. The Ultrashift makes it very easy to drive. Dave

    Hmm (2)

    Henry, After we arrive at the rally on Saturday, it looks like I may have to head out Monday and won't be back till Wednesday to go see you buddy Steve. If you want to move our truck over to the presentation tent area to show off the Lightweight ET JR (or is that Baby Chucky), get with me Sunday to get my keys. Dave

    Hmm (2)

    The impact must have been caused by the gravel road going to the ECR rally (Carl, can you put in a request to have it paved?), Maybe caused by too much Chucky! Can't you just weld it up, there is no need to pivot is there? Thanks for the new shiney black hitch, looks much better then the old one! Dave
