  2. Anyone tow with a HDT? Going to buy our truck today and have been looking at the newer F450's. Will the F450 require bags to tow a mobile suite? I know trucks but I know nothing about diesels or HDT's. Would rather have the HDT to sit higher and all the benefits of pulling/stopping our rig but don't know anything about manufactures, milage, etc... We will be traveling rvers living full time. Thanks for any input.

Email me at mhylbom at mac dot com. Located in the Hill Country of TX for the next month but will ship with PayPal payment.

    Bad tank of DEF

    Headed to Austin, Texas this morning to pick up a Smart and the check engine light came on and the computer derated the engine 25% so I headed to the Western Star dealer. The service tech hooked the diagnostic computer up and it showed no DEF flow. We had stopped at a loves truck stop off I20 in LA, Friday and topped off the fuel and added 14 gallons of DEF, it turns out the DEF was contaminated and clogged up the filters. The service tech told me that this is very common when using the bulk DEF pumps and not the smaller jugs, so lesson learned. I will start using the jugs of DEF which as in this case would have been cheaper then the service to have the system flushed at the dealer.
  5. HI everyone! I am new to posting here. I have been doing some research at length and trying to put everything together, but I was wondering if I can get some recommendations on my specific situation! We currently tow our 41 foot fifth and a gooseneck with antique tractors with a 2004 Dodge with the cummins and six speed. While adequate power, I am growing more concerned regarding braking and suspension with each trip. Which is, of course, what prompted me to look into MDT. Our family consists of myself, my wife, a 4 year old and a one year old. Because they are still in car seats, I felt that a 4 door was necessary. ... I started my research and I really liked the SportChassis type freightliner and really liked the SportTruckRV version! I am one who wants to have power to spare, so I was specifically looking at the M2 112 version with the bigger displacement motor. However, we were not very excited about the price tags.... I am currently looking at a 2008 SportChassis with the 12 liter MBE and 35,000 miles on it and 2000 miles away from me....it looks great but ....unfortunately with a hefty price tag. Then I came across a used 2007 Volvo VNL 730 with 465 hp D12 and 580,000 miles. This was used most recently to haul grain trailers for a farm. it is 800 miles away from me. This has the sleeper, but the refrig is removed and it has been set up with 2 captains chairs sitting sideways and a dinette style table in the back. it is 1/3 the price of the SportChassis. I guess my concerns are: 1. Driving a large HDT- I have a non-commercial class A license, but without driving either MDT or HDT before, the MDT is less intimidating 2. Will it be a problem getting the car seats in and kids in the car seats, or would 4 doors be a lot better? 3. The Volvo is still a tandem....is it ok to leave it that way or will this need to be changed? 4. License/registration in PA....can it be an RV or does it have to be registered as a truck? 5. Is 580,000 miles too much and should I stay away based on that? 6. Parking when out on a trip without the fifth 7. Getting into some campgrounds...the truck is 12' tall, but the camper I guess would still be the limiting factor at 13'6" 8. Any other suggestions I am missing? I know these have probably been answered in one way or another multiple times on this great forum, but I was looking for recommendations for my situation in PA with 2 small children. Thanks in advance for all your help!

    I stumbled across a Crew Chief MDT on the internet. I understand this is a conversion shop out of Canada. Does anyone have experience with their product quality?
