  5. Greetings all, Looking for any gently used Grand Design Momentum or Heartland Road Warrior toy haulers. Would also consider other models depending on the layout. Some of our requirements: Bigger the garage, the better Must have arctic/cold weather package Must be 100% leak/water damage free Must be a 2014 model year or newer We haven't made up our mind on a tow vehicle yet, but we need one of those, too! We're leaning heavily toward a HDT (Volvo 630 or 730), but would be interested in any smaller trucks from F350s on up to MDTs. Shoot me a private message if you or someone you know has any of these items and is interested in making a deal. Thanks!
  6. 2010 Saturn Vue V6, 53400 miles, leather interior with custom front seat covers automatic transmission front wheel drive lots of extras. Set up for Towing with Roadmaster Falcon 11 base plates, lights Etc. Asking $9,900 Located in Cape Coral, Florida, call Don 239 994 5626. If interested we can email pictures
  7. 2012 Ford Focus Titanium with Blue Ox Tow package. Brake light harness is isolated from main electrical system per Ford requirements to avoid transmission issues while towing. Battery shutoff is also installed so you don’t have to disconnect an inconveniently located ground terminal. Car is loaded with keyless entry and push button start, heated leather front seats, power driver seat, Sony AM/FM/CD/Sirius radio, cruise, nav, sunroof, voice activated SYNC, aux port, 2 USB ports, new windshield, less than a year old Goodyear TripleTread tires. 91,000 miles with interior being 9/10 and exterior 7/10 as there are the usual Colorado hood chips in paint and small hail dents on hood and roof. The only tow restriction is 70MPH with no distance or daily starting requirements. Mechanical condition is a 9/10 as it’s approaching the need for brakes. It’s been a great TOAD, I just need something bigger to accomplish soccer dad duties. Please email nmonicrock@aol.com (please put TOAD in the subject) with any questions. Pictures available upon request (couldn’t get them to upload here). Asking price for the car is $8900, and it’s located in Evergreen CO. Thanks! Walt
  8. Hi everyone, After months of deliberating, we have finally settled on our next long-term rig. (We're in a "starter" rig right now that is not suited to full-time use). For a long time we have had our eyes on a toy hauler and a HDT truck to tow it. However, for various reasons, logistical and financial, we've elected to forego the toy hauler and get a large travel trailer. The rig we have our eye on is 37' 4" long and has a GVWR of 10,995 lbs. While I generally understand all the concepts behind the different weight ratings like GVWR, CVWR, curb weight, etc., I just don't feel completely competent in choosing the right tow vehicle. Keep in mind that I was previously considering a HDT, which means I do not want to "skimp" and get a tow vehicle that is barely adequate. I'd like to have some nice wiggle room, if we can afford it. We'll definitely need to buy used, but we're interested in a diesel with a crew cab. We'll be carrying quite a bit of gear in the bed of the truck (don't really have a weight estimate on how much right now). My rudimentary research (and observations from real-life) seem to indicate that a F-250 or similar truck with a 6.7 L will handle our needs - but is that cutting it too close for comfort? Open to suggestions... And I have a few specific questions: 1) Any reason to avoid getting a DRW truck to pair with a travel trailer, other than added cost and tire maintenance? I'm leaning toward DRW if we can find a good deal - just for the additional peace of mind in stability and cargo capacity. 2) What about a crew cab + long (8 ft) bed configuration? Will having a longer truck like that be something i regret when it comes to maneuverability with the trailer? We could use the extra storage offered by the longer bed, but we can forego it if it makes a significant impact on maneuverability. 3) Gear ratios - what should I be looking for? Thanks for any advice!
  9. 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.
  10. We are new to RVing and just bought a New Horizons Summit as well as a Dodge Ram 5500 with a hauler bed. The truck with hauler bed does not have a spare tire, and I'm wondering how important it is to purchase one? We would either have to store it in the basement of the 5th wheel, and space in there will be at a premium. Another option would be to lay it down in the back of the hauler bed of the truck, behind the hitch, but this makes hitching up much more difficult. There is not really an option to retrofit the truck for a spare tire underneath. So, I'm considering not carrying a spare for the truck and just relying on roadside assistance. Is just relying on roadside assistance in the event of a truck tire malfunction even feasible? I don't want to be on the side of the road for 2 days somewhere. Not sure how responsive they would be, especially on weekends or holidays. Thanks, Mark

  12. We talk a lot about much digital advances have made it easier to work remotely than ever before. But we should also acknowledge the need to truly minimize by not towing a vehicle behind your motorhome. High-quality yet affordable scooters, mountain bikes, electric bicycles... there are so many options instead of a tow vehicle. We personally were going to get electric bikes, but my wife preferred having a hybrid bike instead. So I use my e-bike to make any quick trips...otherwise, we bike together, and I just lay off the throttle. We traveled up to 32mi in Tucson alone, and it was a great trip. We just blogged about our success so far not having a toad. I'm wondering if anyone out there shares our sentiment about not using a tow vehicle. If you're preparing a road trip and are on the fence, listen to folks who are surviving without tow vehicles!

  15. Still available!! Asking $25,000 for this fully-loaded 2011 4x4 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 70,000 miles. This comfortable and rugged SUV can handle all your adventures in style, with tons of power to spare thanks to the 5.6 L V8 Hemi under the hood. It handled great the couple of times we had it in the snowy mountains briefly, and has never seen salt! We've used it to tow a cargo trailer and our 4500 lb vintage Airstream (it has a 7500 lb tow rating), and later installed a Blue Ox base plate behind the front bumper to tow it behind our motorhome too. It easily transfers into neutral with the touch of a button to be flat-towable - most automatic cars can't do that, or at least not that easily! The breakaway switch and wiring kit for the rear lights are also installed for towing it. We're only selling it now to downsize our full-time RVing to our new Class B. This has been the perfect SUV to camp with (you can buy a tent to attach to the tailgate and sleep in the back of the Jeep), pull a trailer, haul around two and four-legged family, but also go off-road or get through tough mud and snow with 4WD. A high-end Tekonsha brake controller is already installed for towing trailers that have their own brakes. The front base plate can be used to install a winch or other accessories if you don't plan to pull it behind an RV. Heat works great, A/C is ice cold, all scheduled maintenance performed, newer tires, fully loaded with all the goodies including heated and cooled seats, panoramic sunroof, never seen salt (it's from Tennessee and we try to avoid snow while RVing), no accidents, non-smokers, satellite radio, roof rails installed aftermarket for watercraft, bikes, or a roof box, rubber cargo mat in rear. 100,000 mile transferable extended factory warranty. We have had our dogs in this vehicle, so if you have a serious dog allergy that might be an issue for you. There are a few minor scratches and scuffs on the exterior and interior from normal wear and tear, but nothing major. Trying to sell this fast so we can get back on the road with just our new class B! We'll be in Florida Jan through March, then heading up the east coast with it this year if we still haven't sold it.

  18. SOLD. Beautiful 2012 Ford 350 DRW Super Duty crew cab for sale. In excellent condition. I could list all the options but the truth is this truck has every option Ford offers except snow plow package and off road package. It has everything. Has Ultimate Lariat package, LEER color matched camper shell, and B & W Companion hitch. 50,250 miles. Always garaged when not in use. We sold our 5th Wheel and no longer need the truck. Would like to get around $43,900 but we are motivated to sell and would consider any reasonable offer. Text, email, phone Steve at 801-717-6277
  19. Sold together for a discounted price or sold separately. Current location is Durango Colorado. We have settled in Durango and no longer need the 5th wheel or truck. Willing to trade for something smaller for weekend camping. This diesel truck has been an awesome work and tow truck for us. We pulled a 37' fifth wheel in the mountains with no problems. (2000 Avion Savanna 5th wheel trailer is available in separate posting, discount if purchase both together) Bed has spray coating for protection. Exterior is in good condition with typical minor paint, coating on grill puckering, and very small dents typical for a vehicle of this age. Known issues are limited to stains on fabric seats, minor worn part on driver's seat, and missing plastic on passenger exterior mirror. This vehicle has a towing package which allows you to not only pull a load more easily/safely but also allows you to control downhill speed without relying on your brakes. The side mirrors can be pulled out so that you can easily see when you are towing something. Under warranty, we had the turbo replaced at 60,000 miles and replaced EGR cooler, oil cooler, and EGR valve at 116,461 miles. In city mileage is about 15-18 mpg. This vehicle has a full back seat and seats 6 adults comfortably. The back seats fold up out of the way to provide a flat area for tools or other storage. There are fold down area for cups/storage in both the front and rear seats. Full tool chest and ladder rack are negotiable. Price is $13,750. Very comfortable Avion Savanna 5th wheel. This was a high end model (approximately $65,000 new) with lots of oak cabinets, built in convection oven/microwave, 2 desks, queen sized bed, lots of storage, and 3 slides. It has a peninsula kitchen counter with sink and two areas that pull up for additional counter space. Has a homey feel to it with the open living area and wood cabinets. We lived in this full time for 7 years. It is priced as is, needs TLC: minor fiberglass work, exterior paint (prep is almost complete), flooring. The main AC was replaced 3 years ago and hasn't been used much since then. Commode replaced 2 years ago. Price is $9,995. Work needed on the inside: 1. It is missing one sliding closet door 2. Replace the section of carpet on two slides 3. Replace parts on stove so it self-ignites (have the parts) 4. Replace some flooring in bath/bedroom (have flooring) 5. locate the switch for electric awning (upgraded from manual to electric) 6. other very minor items We have converted the single landing gear control to a dual control however one leg still needs to be installed (have the part). The unit has been sitting for some time so the batteries will likely need to be replaced. We removed an ugly couch and replaced that with a desk that spans the rear of the unit. There is a 2 drawer file cabinet between the two work stations in the desk. I spent many hours working there and looking out the windows at scenery or wildlife. There is also a built in desk that can be pulled out that has another two large drawers. We found it heavy to pull out so we did not use this feature. The bedroom has a closet space with shelving across the width of the trailer. There is an additional wardrobe (see picture) for hanging clothes. The refrigerator was repaired with a new coil system about 3 years ago. There is a power awning that was added about 3 years ago and used only once. The heater was replaced about six years ago and had about 4 years usage. When we were in RV parks we usually used electric space heaters, so the overall use on the heater is low. The water pump was replaced and the water heater was rebuilt. The unit is plumbed to add a washer/dryer. We had one for a couple of years and then chose to use the space as storage. We did replace a leaf spring and have a spare. We will continue repairs until it is sold. Book value is about $14,000, so additional work affects the price. Although Avion chose to refer to it as 35', it is actually 37 feet long. Empty weight is about 12,300 and total weight with propane, fresh and waste water, and belongings is about 12,400. Price includes hitch and cover. More pictures available upon request. Prices negotiable if you purchase both the 5th wheel and truck.

    tow vehicle

    We are in the process of planning to be full time next year and plan on buying a fifth wheel and a truck. Can you please inform me what type of mileage you get on a ford, dodge or chevy diesel 350/3500 dually without towing since the truck will be our main transportation for sightseeing etc. and mileage while towing. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, John and Linda
