  2. planned on Boot Camp in Wyoming to learn about tow vehicles. Just bought Rockwood Ultra lite 2608BS, I believe tow vehicle should be able to handle 9000lbs. So, which truck do I need to buy? Thanks and hope to go to Escapade next year.

    Fun in the snow

    Ok, I have a Volvo 670 we had 17" of snow dumped on us, took front end loader and moved snow for about 5 hours. Wanted to move truck to clean around it and tires just spun. found tow hook but no pins, being on a farm I found something that would work as a pin temporarily. So now i am doubting whether tow hook is right, and I know I definitely need a pin. Does anyone have pictures, and where to buy these items at? It was a long day, and didn't like having my own highway through hell episode just outside the front door of my house trying to pull the truck with the tractor. Tractor didn't like pulling that much and spent a considerable amount of time just spinning on ice. Time to get correct tools for the job, starting with hooks and pins. Thanks, Chuck
  5. 1995 Georgie Boy Swinger - 34 ft Approx. 78,0000, Gas engine $22,900 for the RV, $4,900 for the toad We are moving to Italy and so we’re selling our completely remodeled RV and Mazda 3 tow vehicle. We’ve been traveling around full time all over the US since July and really enjoyed this motorhome. Despite it’s older looking exterior, the inside is bright and brand new, very spacious and super comfortable! We have upgraded so many things on this RV including a new roof, all new appliances, and a motorized flat screen TV, to name a few. Message me for more photos and I will be happy to email them to you. The list of upgrades is extensive: Kitchen: We built a larger kitchen area that is more conducive for cooking, with additional cabinets and counter space, a residential sink and all new appliances: residential fridge/freezer, gas cooktop and hood, a microwave convection oven, and even a dishwasher. Portable washing machine stores under kitchen counter and works perfect for small loads. Bathroom: We installed a new larger tub/shower combo, new sink and countertop, and new tankless propane hot water heater. Some Interior Upgrades Include: Laminate flooring throughout, new hybrid memory foam and spring queen sized mattress, Max fan in bedroom, upgraded water pump, upgraded LED lights inside & out, and added heat and noise barrier insulation and carpet to the doghouse. Some Major Exterior Upgrades Include: New roof, large awning, air lifts for a smoother ride, tire pressure monitoring system, and spare tire mounted underneath. TV’s: 50” 4K HDR Amazon Fire flat screen smart tv that is mounted on a motorized lift, housed inside a cabinet, blueray DVD player, and a 2nd TV in the bedroom. Radio/Navigation/Cameras: 7” android radio with front & back cameras, new side and center speakers. Generator: New Champion inverter generator with remote start, less than 500 hours on it, 3 yr warranty. Misc: Leveling jacks & steps are electric. Both dash A/C and central A/C blow nice and cold. Both heaters in the living area and bedroom are propane and work great. No slideouts = less things that break! Storage: Tons of storage including a pantry, linen closet, large under bed storage, lots of storage cabinets and drawers in the bedroom and throughout the RV, and large storage compartments on the outside. General Maintenance: new spark plugs and wires, new ignition coil, new serpentine and ac belts, new brake master cylinder, recharged dash AC, and resealed windows. Cat Things: We created a step down into one of the storage compartments below for the litter box with entry under the booth, and a hiding spot in the bedroom that allows them access in and out if the bedroom door is closed. Tow Vehicle: 2009 Mazda 3, Manual transmission, 126K miles, owned since it was brand new, meticulously maintained with documentation. Blue Ox plate installed for towing. New: A/C compressor, serpentine belts, engine mounts, all 4 struts, front tie rods and lower arm suspension, head lights & fog lights.
  6. 2009 Mazda 3 Sedan - $4,900 Manual transmission Mazda 3 in very good condition, 127,345 miles, non-smoking and only 1 owner! Clean title with no accidents. This car includes a Blue Ox tow plate and Hiltex tow bar, which is about a $3,000 value alone, perfect for pulling behind an RV as a toad, which is what we did for the past 5 months. Exterior does show some wear and tear but is in overall decent condition. Interior is immaculate and super clean, shows very little wear, seats and fabric are in excellent condition, and ceiling is in excellent shape. Items we replaced this year include: - New headlights - New A/C compressor, belt, accumulator, and expansion valve - New serpentine belt - New engine mounts - New struts (all 4) - New front tie rods and lower arm suspension We’re only selling it because we’re moving to Italy and it’s too expensive to ship! Message me for more photos and I will be happy to email them to you.

  11. 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!
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. 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

  18. 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!

  21. 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.
