RE: Best quality: Micro Minni, R-POD, E PRO

Any Forest River product can be of dubious quality. Not true for the one I have... Mitch That's why I used the words CAN BE. My Grey Wolf 26DJSE was an absolute disaster.

RE: New Maxxis tires

I have used all manner of Chinese tires. The trailer weighs 5,000 pounds. I have pulled from Utah to the East Coast and back without a single issue. I have had no troubles with any Chinese tires I have used. I have used at LEAST 4 DIFFERENT BRANDS. I ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEY HAVE THE NYLON CAP. I DON'T CURB HOP, RUN OVER 65 MPH, DO TIGHT TURNS, AND ALWAYS CHECK MY INFLATION. According to some I am so lucky I should buy a lottery ticket! I suspect it just common sense. The last tries were Greenball @ $68.00/each plus install.

RE: CARB smog testing motorhomes Every 4months by 2024

For those who didn't "live it"- I grew up on Southern California in the 60's and 70's. In the 60's we used to go to my Grandma's house in the San Gabriel Valley. The San Gabriel Mountains were 20 miles away as the crow flies. In the summer time I used to play outside and the air was so filthy I couldn't see those mountains just 20 miles away and my throat would hurt severely. Fast forward to today-the population has DOUBLED since I grew up there and there are more vehicles registered there than any where else in the Country. The air is cleaner than it's EVER BEEN. All because of CARB mandates-that were so successful by the way they were adopted by several other states. I have since retired and moved out of state-taking my massive equity with me. Yea say what you will but quite frankly you cannot by any stretch argue with the results. So yea-camp elsewhere.

RE: Tundra vs. Silverado question

My 2014 1500 is just shy of 2000 lbs per door sticker. I've run down the road per dot scale close to 8400 with out issues. With that said, iirc Toyota used a 10.5" rear ring gear vs 9.5 or 8.5 in my case, as I have a V6, not an 8. Also typically a 4.10 ratio. Trans gears are taller overall. Reality, the GM typical 3.42 ratio and 4.5 2st gear in trans may be lower overall. Reality, both should be similar in handling, power can vary due to many factors. Marty My 2018 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab LTZ (Short bed) w/the 5.3 is 1444 pounds. I'm very surprised at this 2,000 pound payload figure.

RE: RV registration in SD

Getting away with something? 2 of my vehicles have hardly ever left the state they call home the rest are all registered at my PRIMARY residence where I pay taxes, vote, and spend the required time there each year (June 1) and is where I have my drivers license as required. The other states where my vehicles are registered don't require me to change my drivers license because I never spend enough time there. These are facts---getting away with something! I had an international license for several years, suppose you can fault that also. Ever drive a rental car? The reality is you are "trying to get away with something". If you can afford the purchases to begin with-pay the associated taxes!

RE: Tundra vs. Silverado question

I have a 2014 Silverado 5.3L V8 with tow capacity of 9700# and payload capacity of 1638# according to the sticker on the door jamb. I tow my camper with it, which fully loaded weighs close to 9500#. I know I’m at the upper end of my tow rating, but I’ve never felt uncomfortable while towing. I’m thinking of getting a Toyota Tundra. As long as the tow capacity and payload capacity is the same or exceeds that of my Silverado, shouldn’t I expect roughly the same experience towing? I want to make sure the Tundra would be up to the task. Thanks. I have never seen a Silverado 1500 with a 1,600 payload-but I will take your word for it. In the real world-you are really should look in to a 2500. The Tundra will not be any better.
