  1. So how to respond. well I will put it this way .yes it would be extremely expensive if you where full timing it but once IN a while more like once in a blue moon it doesn't hurt to take a weekend and splurge a little . If you cant afford $65.00 for a over night treet once in a while you sure as heck cannot afford a HDT
  2. Brand new Northern Quest Casino Rv Resort in Spokane Washington big rig friendly yes at least 20 ft of lawn between rv sites luxury sites concrete pads with propane fire pits and bbqs also comes with patio furniture felt a little out classed the Volvo needed washed and they had a detail company washing rvs This is a very nice place you can rent a sanitized golf cart to take yourself to the casino.
  3. So we hauled our new to us jeep Rubicon to Spokane this weekend via I90 what a rutted up mess Seemed like we where all over the road.Hit one rut got stabilized then hit another and get thrown back over to the other side of the lane. The question I have could the jeep be amplifying the ruff roads? This is how I have it tied down .Two ratchet straps tied to the rear jeep axle crossing each other goings to D rings in the bed on the front strap over each tire straps go from D ring over the tire to a strap winch bolted to the deck. The question that I have will a strap with RTJ hooks hooked to the jeep frame and winched down to load the suspension help with the excessive bouncing?
  4. Shock preferences for a vnl780. Any one brand better than the other? And prices what do you all run and why?
  5. GREAT INFO Thanks a lot everybody
  6. Yup. Pine Near RV park in Winthrop WA. Have been to just about every RV park listed in Washington state in the hhrv guide I know there has got to be more than what is listed in Washington any body have any ideas
  7. Sure glad we got this straitened out . Let me rephrase this. Other than Heavy Haulers RV camp ground web site (THAT never seems to get updated) Is there another resource to look for big rig friendly RV Resorts.
  8. Other than the hdt resource guide( that seems to never get up dated) is there a ap or a computer site that specifically lists big rig friendly rv resorts and camp grounds?
  9. Yet another reason to cover your tires and wheel to protect them from the sun and heat . Plastic chrome hub covers. The heat will warp the plastic and the chrome hub caps will fall off. Learned the hard way will be getting new wheel and hub covers.
  10. We are going to try to make it next year. If I see him again I will try to talk him into coming. By then he should have his truck put together. We will see. Hey Chad is ambassador taking reservations for next year?
  11. As a Hdt owner I didn't realize how much we influence people .After having a ruff day at work I came home to an interesting suprize there was a young man in my driveway that I had met a couple of years ago he had answered an advertisement I put out trying to sell my commercial fifth wheel at that time he came over to look at it and got really interested in our truck. Two years later he is standing in my drive way looking like a proud owner of a freightliner . He had so many questions how to license how to insure. It was a lot of fun helping him out. I brought up our truck forum I hope he gets involved with the forum that way you guys can fix what I screwed up.Ha I hope he reads this and wish him all the luck and welcome to the HDt family.
  12. What a screwed up year couldn't make it to the wcr this year do to the work situation and four weeks ago we got hit with a $4,200.00 domestic water bill needless to say we have a new water line from the meter out at the street all the way into the house 4 separate leeks. This thing decided to go all at once. Truck has been sitting all year . That is going to change .We are going to live up to our call name. We are going to hook up the trailer and runaway. Like the song says I've got a quarter heads Carolina tails California. Honestly any where would be great
  13. yes . I have done a lot of concrete forming over the years .(actually I am what you would call a turn key carpenter. A carpenter that can do all phases from foundation to handing over the keys) I am a journeyman carpenter. Foreman and sometimes superintendent certified welder equipment operator and cdl truck driver.
  14. Good news going back to work Tuesday. Sure going to be interesting we will see how this is going to work .Mandatory face mask and social distancing and temperature checks. To little to late for the rally but at least I wont have to sell the truck. If the rivers don't rise and the pandemic don't take a turn for the worse we will try to make it next year.
  15. Thought we might make it to the rally but it is definitely not going to happen .Been laid off since January. Thought we where going back to work till the pandemic shut us down again. Only have 575 hrs to go till I can retire from construction. Its not looking good they say once they lift the stay at home order we will have so much construction that we wont have enough people to man the jobs. This means over time and a lot of it. We will see I wont believe it till I am on the job site pounding stakes and driving nails!
