RE: Any nice new 5th wheels that have cloth furniture

On no, I'm in trouble now. The wife found one that she likes. She's always wanted a rear kitchen but also have a nice living area. We looked last night at the new Cougars and she liked the 362RKS. Nice big kitchen in the rear and living room with two couches. The 81 gallon fresh water tank would be nice in the state parks here in Indiana. At 39'4" it would be a close fit in the barn. We'll have to do some careful measuring of both first.

RE: Any nice new 5th wheels that have cloth furniture

Take a look at VanLeigh Vilano 5ers. We purchased a 2019 320GK a little over a year ago. Love the beautiful woodwork. Also love the Franklin furniture. Microfiber and very comfortable. Interesting. I didn't know Tiffin made 5th wheels.

Any nice new 5th wheels that have cloth furniture

We would like to get a bigger 5th wheel around 35 foot and this time have opposing slides in the living area for more room. We like our current Cougar and like the cloth furniture. It's held up well and your legs don't stick to it. My wife is always cold so she doesn't like vinyl or leather. Seems like every camper we've looked in the past few months is the cheap leather/vinyl. Does any manufacture still offer cloth furniture ?

RE: Interior windshield privacy curtain and door screen

Concerning the original poster's question regarding "the benefits of a screen for the sliding door", you should be able to find some good YouTube videos on that. It sounds like you have a very nice van. I second the youtube thing. There was a couple on the West coast that drove a "loaner" Hymer for a couple years. It was their home so they may have some ideas for privacy curtains and door screens.

RE: Hymer Sunlight Van 1 purchase

Follow up: I ended up taking the unit to Beaver Motors where the facebook group says the experts are for the problem I had. They diagnosed that the inverter was bad. So they replaced the unit with a good used one they had and it has worked fine for two months. Per the instructions from the home page of I sent my experience to CW. A few days later Shawn from corporate contacted me and they wanted a copy of the $840 bill I paid. They investigated and told me they would pay for it. Then I got phone calls to verify my home address and my email. Both of which were on the initial communication. It sure sounded to me like the run around and stall tactics before the final shoe dropped and they denied the claim. Finally on Monday I called Shawn up and told him that this was crazy, if they were going to deny it, just get it over with. He assured me that the mix up was on their part and the check would be in the mail, yea right! Well on Tuesday, the mail man brought me the check. I know I read on this forum CW bashing, I for one will stand up and say they treated me right. I bought the unit "as is" but they were to point out all the working and non working features. I strongly believe that when they ran the AC with shore power every thing worked and they simply failed to check that the AC would work on generator since every thing else worked. Now everything worked fine and we have gone on two trips and are very happy. Howdy fellow Hoosier, We're not to far from you. Near the little town of Westport. Hope you enjoy your new camper and maybe we'll see you at one of the local state parks next summer.

RE: My new to me camper.

I'm a little late to the party here. You're camper looks almost exactly like our 2001 Lance 1030 inside and outside. The only difference being ours is a dry bath. The shower is tiny but doable. I do wish our grey tank was bigger thou. We carried it on a 1996 Dodge 2500 for a few years. We were within 200 lbs of the tire limits when fully loaded. The only issue we had was the brakes on that old truck were never that great. Even after updated pads. We now have a 2005 dodge dually only because a friend at work was moving to California and didn't need the truck anymore. Hope you continue to enjoy your adventures.

RE: Best route from Kentucky to Cody, Wyoming

Good morning neighbor. We live in Southern Indiana. We've been to Cody twice since 2015 hauling a truck camper. The first time we went thru South Dakota and thru the Big Horn mountains on hwy 14. I would not recommend that route when pulling a camper. The second time we thru South Dakota again but this time turned off at Buffalo WY on hwy 16. That was a better route but still some hills and turns. If you want to avoid the mountains then I'd go I80 thru Nebraska then work your way up thru Casper and Thermopolis WY.

RE: GM Strike

Don't be quick to condemn an entire company or group of workers based on the inappropriate actions of a few. I'm part of a small union in our company. We have around 1600 members. Yes, there are a few that take advantage of the union security and don't work as hard as they should. And there are a few who are very vocal. But, 99% of the folks work hard and are good people.

RE: Dodge RAM flywheel

Dual mass flywheel do your self a favor and contact South Bend clutch and see what they offer to rid yourself of it. Maybe a nice dual disk clutch, way less than $4K even with a shop install. Yep, I would agree.

RE: Dodge RAM flywheel

When does it vibrate? All the time ? If it's a manual transmission and the flywheel has hot spots that can cause a vibration on take off. If it's an automatic not sure how the flywheel will cause a vibration.

RE: New Ram 3500 SRW (Edited with Pictures)

Nice truck. Thanks for your support (I work for Cummins)

RE: New Trailer and Truck

Like the others have said a SRW may be capable, but since you are planning on traveling the country with this setup you will really appreciate the extra stability of the dually. We just have a small 30 foot fifth wheel. When we went from SRW to Dually I was amazed at the difference in handling.

RE: "Porpoising" - How to Tame the Rocking Camper

Howdy Andy, We have an older Lance 1030 on a 2005 Dodge dually. We to have had the porpoising back and forth a couple of times. On I90 in Minnesota the two times we went out West. That stretch of road beat us some much I thought the truck was going to come off the ground. We had to slow down to 50mph to get it to quit. I don't have the struts on my camper. I had the brackets on the camper until I had to rebuild the front end and I didn't put them back on. I'm using the cheaper chain and turn bucket tie downs and Torklift frame brackets. My next step is to get new shocks for the truck and maybe try the fast guns. Good Luck.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

Thanks for the heads up Buzzcut. Maybe this will help some Ford owners decide if they want to do that same. I wonder if the 2017+ powerstrokes still use this pump or has Bosch made some improvements to prevent this?

RE: Repairing the cargo door

I have 2 new cargo doors w/ frames I ordered for my Keystone Outback just before we sold it. If you PM me I'll give you the dimensions of them if your interested. Never got to put them on. Cool, I'll measure the door tonight after work and let you know.

Repairing the cargo door

Our Cougar has a large cargo door on the side for the pass thru storage like most 5th wheels. The one on the curb side has been had a bubble in it for a couple years. I took the door out yesterday and pulled the panel out of the frame. Looks like the fiberglass (I assume it is) skin has separated from the foam core. Not all of it separated but a 1/3 of it has. I pulled the rest of the panel off the foam board. Looks like water leaked in around the lock area. Once I get things dried out and cleaned up I'm going to glue the panel back on. Does anyone have a glue they recommend ? I've emailed West Marine to get their ideas as I've used them before when I had to fix some delamination on a previous camper.

RE: First Tow with new to us Ram DRW

Looks like a pretty nice package. Those newer trucks sure are nice. We moved from a 1996 dodge diesel 2wd 2500 to a 2005 dodge 4wd dually. The difference in handling, power and noise were substantial. I can imagine the newer are even better. Can you show more detail on your bike carrier?

Southern Indiana to Outer Banks in June

Hi All, We're heading to the Cape Hatteras area in the second week of June. Leaving from South Eastern Indiana so we'll be going down I74 thru Cincy. From there it looks like we have two options. 1) Down thru My Airy NC, Greenboro and the Raleigh. 2) Over thru Charlottesville, Richmond and Norfolk. We'll be pulling a 30' fifthwheel. Is either way better for traffic and roads or is it pretty much a tossup ?

RE: 2019 trip from KY to Yellowstone/Tetons

We spent two mights in Cody at the Ponderosa Campground. After that we went North up to Red Lodge Mt and then back down to Yellowstone over the Beartooth Highway. Pretty drive for sure. When driving from Rapid City to Yellowstone be sure to avoid the Big Horn mountains. On our trip out that way we drove from Rapid City up to Ranchester and then to Cody on highway 14. I wouldn't want to drive that route pulling a camper. Last year when we made the same trip we turned at Buffalo and went on hwy 16, 20 and 14 to Cody. Still a very nice drive but much easier.
