  1. Thanks bobsallyh....I just emailed her.
  2. Yes Linda...I have emailed her at that aol address a couple times with no response. Do you have another person we might contact. Thanks Kelly
  3. Hi Jim...tried that email but it came back invalid. Thanks anyway.
  4. Hopefully someone can help. I have been trying to get on the Escapees Boondockers BOF email/contact list. I have gone onto the Escapees site and sent a couple emails to the person on the link. I have not received a reply so I am thinking it is old contact information. I spoke to the folks at Escapees but they do not have any additional information. Does anyone have good/current contact info for this group? I understand the Boondockers have a meet up N. of Quartzsite in the next few days. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Kelly
  5. Hi Kirk...Escapees has a Boondockers BOF. I am trying to get on their email list to receive any newsletters, schedule of events, etc. On Escapees web page their is a link to the lady that organizes boondocking meet ups etc. I have emailed her twice over the last 3 weeks or so. I have received no response. It is obvious the email address is not a good way to reach her. I called Escapees directly to get info on the Boondockers BOF. They have no info on the group. Kirk, I was hoping you might be able to direct me to someone who can put me on the Boondockers email list or might be able to help. Thanks, Kelly

  6. I agree Eric...these things take a pounding and sooner or later something big is bound to break down.
  7. In the next couple weeks we will be taking delivery of our new 5th wheel. The dealer is pitching us on their extended warranty. I have heard that it is best to look at purchasing an extended warranty after the manufactures warranty expires and to purchase on the open market rather than through the dealer. Any words of wisdom or advise on this subject? Thanks, Kelly
  8. Thanks capt307 and Chalkie for the tips.
  9. Lot's and lot's of factors go into the tow capability as there are many variables....what is the truck, is it a 4X2 or 4X4? is it regular cab? super cab? what is the UVW of the trailer etc. etc. Anyway back to the original topic I listed the fixed 5th wheel on Craigslist yesterday afternoon and sold it within 3 hrs. Will be getting the slider. Thanks to everyone for their feedback.
  10. I see....I'll contact them directly and see what happens. Thanks again
  11. Thanks for the info J-T. Since my under bed setup is B&W I will have to stay with B&W for the slider if I decide to go that direction.
  12. I agree about the weight. Having been in the transportation industry it is very easy to become overloaded like a high percentage of the rigs out on the road. Then combine under inflated tires, broken suspension parts etc. it's a recipe for trouble. Thanks for your feedback Mark.
  13. Thanks to everyone for the info....not too worried about the capacity of the TV....it's a F350 Powerstroke SRW with 27565R20 tires and rear air bag lift kit......yes it's a short bed, thus the concern.......just somewhat nervous about the max jack knife capability of 80--82 degrees. If anyone has a short bed with a fixed 5th wheel I would love to hear from you and get your thoughts and experiences. Thanks again everyone!!
  14. We will be picking up our new 42' 5th wheel in a couple weeks. I currently have a B&W fifth wheel but it is not a slider. After doing some calculations I think that I will be able to jack knife the trailer to appx 80--82 degrees safely without the trailer running into the truck. With that in mind I would like to ask those of you with experience if that is good enough or should I spend the $1500 or so for a slider? I have read on other RV forums of people stating they have sliding 5th wheels but have never used the sliding feature. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks, Kelly
