  1. Goose box?

    Hmm.....that's a very good idea.
  2. Goose box?

    Well then maybe I should just stick to my Comfort Hitch plan, my 5er already has a MORryde pin box........it's a tractor, I'll get over or around the hitch. I load & unload it from the equipment trailer with just two ramps now (makes DW a bit nervous) so this should just be a minor problem.
  3. Class of 2018

    It looks like DW & I are set to join the class of 2018 around July, ranch is sold except for the final details. We will still be working but living in our new home on wheels (2018 Keystone Montana & 2008 Volvo VNL 670).....at least until we can figure out an affordable healthcare plan of some kind. I've been living in snow country for all my life and I'm ready for sunny & 72........the downsizing has began.
  4. Goose box?

    That is one downside to the gooseneck ......but with a hitch camera & DW it won't be bad, I'm retired from farming so I'm used to hitching. One good side is that I won't have to hit the trailer to latch it, just drop the airbags, back under, air up.
  5. Goose box?

    The Goose Box is an air ride pin box approved by Lippert, so the warranty is okay. The tractor is 84" wide so I don't have a lot of extra room, I do have a wide front that I could install, just trying to keep the old school look......the same reason that I haven't put an electric starter on it yet.
  6. Goose box?

    Has anyone tried the Goose Box pin box from Reese on their 5er & HDT? I really would like to use a gooseneck hitch since it looks like the best way to load & unload the Purple Tractor is off the rear of the truck and it being a tricycle style tractor.
  7. Permanent cooking facilities? Oregon....

    Gubermint regulations.......arrg!
  8. Permanent cooking facilities? Oregon....

    Maybe I'll go in close to closing time, they may not want to spend much time inspecting it then.
  9. Permanent cooking facilities? Oregon....

    I may have to drive to Bend. I have looked at those.....a very good possibility.
  10. Permanent cooking facilities? Oregon....

    LOL, as a retired farmer I've cooked many meals on an exhaust manifold.
  11. Permanent cooking facilities? Oregon....

    Problem is that the rule seems to be subjective depending on who & if they inspect it.
  12. Permanent cooking facilities? Oregon....

    I just stopped by the DMV to get the forms to license the truck as a motorhome. They told me I had to bring the truck, which I already knew, it had to have sleeping & permanent cooking facilities then told me a microwave does not count. What do I need to install?
  13. Off the deep end pic

    Right now the plan is to dovetail & load from the back, use a winch to pull it on backward. Currently I haul it on a 28" high equipment trailer with 2 ramps......loading & unloading at an angle....... it makes DW nervous to watch.
  14. What kind of wrench?

    What kind of wrench do I need to get the 5th wheel plate off this Volvo? The head end of the bolt looks round and the other looks like an axle nut cone.

    That's cool. I've got a 41 M that my grandfather bought new 3 months before he died. It was the first tractor on the farm, I'm going to deliver it to my nephew soon.
