This is my second DP and first with Tag. I had the DP weighed at my local DOT facility and the weights just don't make sense so looking for some guidance.
LF - 6700 RF - 6900
LD - 7750 RD - 8800
LT - 3650 RT - 2900
I'm thinking their brand new scales were not calibrated correctly.
Advice greatly appreciated - Richard
Well, we've jumped right in and bought ourselves a 29 ft travel trailer. We've been talking about doing this for quite a while and, with this pandemic and all that goes with it, this seems like a good time to take the plunge. Having never owned one before, we need to figure we need to figure out what we're doing before we take it out on the road. Our goal is to cruise around the US for a few months so I think the learning curve will be a bit steep. That's where you fine people come in. i have been perusing this site and have already learned quite a bit. Be prepared to be bombarded with newbie questions! I guess the first order of business will be to buy a truck to pull this thing. Anyone have a 3/4 ton truck for sale? :)
The reason you are more afraid is that the motorhome sits you up and you have a larger view of what is coming. That's a good thing, but the first few times can be a little unnerving if you haven't done a lot of driving in the mountains before. I actually dislike being in the passengers seat more than the driver's seat because I always think I'm hanging over the edge. I've notice Dave is picker when I'm driving over mountain passes about me staying on the center line. That's because his point of view changes when I'm driving.
From South Lake Tahoe, take US 50 North until you meet up with Highway 395 in Carson. Take US 395 north up into Oregon until you come to US 20, go west until you meet with US 97 at Bend. Turn north and at the Columbia River take I-84 into Portland then I-5 to home. Different scenery and a lot flatter.
