  3. This travel vlog has a little bit of everything. RVing in a dispersed camping area often brings unwanted critters. We finally catch a mouse in our fifth wheel and have an eventful travel day. The day starts off with an unwanted mouse in our fifth wheel. We try to keep a clean and secure house but they still find a way in. Then it's time to move on, stopping at an RV dump station along the way. We provide some tips when dumping your RV and filling your freshwater. Picking a VERY remote RV boondocking location might have been a bad idea, when we arrive the spot is taken! We hope you enjoy the video. Please don't forget to SUBSCRIBE!
  4. 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. In this video we are sharing some knowledge. If you like to tow your 5th wheel or travel trailer and still off-road, prerun, or 4x4, this might be helpful! We install Daystar airbag cradles, this cool system allows your truck or SUV to have full suspension travel and still tow heavy loads. We had previously ripped out one of our airbags due to the airbag limiting our droop travel. Now that issue is solved and we can still tow heavy loads. If you have any questiong please let us know!
  6. We have a Brake Buddy for Sale. $400 with remote. We live in Arizona. imaginethatsr@gmail.com
  7. We are considering purchasing a truck with a popup truck camper as a tow vehicle. We are considering the popup style truck camper because of weight and the lower profile. Does anyone have an experience towing such a truck camper? We have a 40-foot Phaeton.
  8. Hi and thanks in advance for any advice or suggestions! My husband and I have a 22' travel trailer, 3200 lbs dry. I don't know the GVWR since it's a trailer from the 80s and I can't find this information about it (but I'm assuming 5000 might be a safe estimate?)! We're looking to buy a tow vehicle for it; this will be for full-timing in the trailer. We've already done a lot of research and read lots of opinions, but it seems like much of the advice is geared towards folks hauling larger trailers. We started out thinking about trying to tow with an SUV, but read some scary stories of people flipping while towing with SUVs. I see lots of recommendations for 3/4 to 1 ton diesel trucks. My question is: is this really the best way to go, even with as smaller trailer like ours, or would something like an F150 (or possibly a larger SUV like a Tahoe/Suburban) work just fine? We're buying used and budget is a factor, so we really don't want to pay for more truck than we really need. Top priorities: 1) Safety: I'll be driving and I've never towed anything before, so I don't want to worry about sway, flipping over, being underpowered, etc. 2) Ability to get us anywhere: we plan on traveling all over, and we love Colorado, so it needs to be able to handle the trailer in the mountains! I know a lot of this depends on specific ratings for specific vehicles, but I also feel like I see a lot of people basically saying that just because a vehicle is rated to tow a certain amount doesn't mean it is a good idea, or that it will be able to tow this amount up hills etc. Anyone have any recommendations, advice, stories of similar situations, words of encouragement, ... ? Thanks!
