    HDT/hitch for tow behind travel trailer

    I have placed an order for the Gen Y hitch model 1225. I will let you know what I think, when I get a chance to use it. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01APPV7YM/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Airbag done

    My drivers side is slightly lower than the passenger side, I offset it by loading the M I L on the passenger side.;)

    Cutting bed and mounting 5th wheel

    I did a stint in Senatobia MS. 2 and a half hours west of Pickwick Dam, I remember the summers as brutal hot with no breeze, and the winters as cold and damp with constant wind. I am back in sunny Central Florida, still brutal summers which last 11 and 1/2 months, almost always breezy, never as hot as Miss. Wicked cold winters that can get below 50 degrees for a couple of terrible hours at a time that may last as long as 2 weeks. Nearly unbearable. We do plan our trips out of the heat around the July 4th holidays. Try to find a cooler climate, usually somewhere with a mountain view.

    Their portable band saw works well.

    When you pitch a softball like that, I want to swing for the fence. I will restrain myself and pray this country puts the blindfold back on Justice. Should not matter who you are, you do wrong you pay the consequence.

    Well I am glad you survived, and had a little fun as well. Low and slow that is my tempo.

I plan on something like this if the suspension hitch is a good idea.

    3 axle bumper pull RV recommendations

    My wife and I needed to stay within a budget, as we all do. We chose to build the deck ourselves, and keep it functional and simple. I spent around $600 on a set of 10 foot long aluminum ramps, that the car haulers use, installed some channels in the center of the deck to hold them. The ramps slide out on strips of starboard, and lock in place on the rear of the deck. The Jeep can handle the angle so no need for a a tilt bed. I used PT lumber for the deck, and tie the Jeep down with wheel straps. We have hauled around 7500 miles thus far, and planning a trip to Colorado/Utah next summer. While I would love to have a custom built bed and I shift and a triple axle trailer, we prefer to spend that money on exploring this country. The simpler you make everything the less challenges you may face. I purchased the truck in January, Titled and tagged it in February, built the bed and hitch in the driveway and bought a TT for $9000, sold the goose-neck trailer and truck camper in May, loaded the Jeep on the deck, hitched the trailer up and headed out for a three week trip in early June. Spent less for the truck, deck, and the TT, then what we were planning to spend on a well used, new to us DRW pick-up.

    Works perfectly, I am heading back to Windrock ORV for more wheeling the week before Thanksgiving. Way better than the truck camper and Jeep loaded on a goose-neck trailer, pulled by a Dodge Ram 2500 SRW with a mildly built Cummins. I am around 64' feet total length.
