RE: Thor Wanderer Wagon 287WTB info needed

I don't have a year right now - and got the same lack of info that you must have just seen. Rather odd ... in fact, I snapped a photo of the Thor Model number and referred back to that, thinking I must have typo'ed that in my search ... nope - really does say THOR 287WTB on the sticker. Edit - he confirmed that it's a 2004 ... still can't find a spec sheet online for weights for that model. Found this site that lists a 277WTB and a 297WTB ... but no 287WTB RV Web Thor Models

Thor Wanderer Wagon 287WTB info needed

My son-in-law recently got a 2004 Thor Wanderer Wagon 287WTB and I'm not finding any specs for this online. Looks like the weight sticker on the tongue has worn mostly away and is not legible. I'm not seeing a weight plate anywhere on the exterior. Trying to help him find the right WD hitch and setup. Thanks! Greg

RE: Cd's into zip drive so I can play them in new car

I upgraded to Iomega ZIP drives thinking I was all that and a bag of chips. A few months later a co-worker walks in with a JAZZ drive ... and the game was on!

RE: Flipping my axle!

Why does someone always have to say that? The sky is not "blue" ... it's azure. you're pendantically correct - the axle doesn't get flipped, but the spring perches get flipped from under to over ... so, still a "flip" in my book.

RE: Fifth-Wheel Movie night

I read somewhere that Longmire was going to start up again? Will have to chase that to ground - I liked that series. I give 2 thumbs up to Heartland.

RE: Mirror folds up in high winds: solved (but not pretty)

The fold option is to save the mirror from breaking when hit. There should be a way to tighten up the friction on the swing bar? But, nice solution for an immediate problem!

RE: spring chickens...

Cummins12V98 asked if I could post these - Front Sight rifle course? We're taking a group back out to Pahrump in May. YES, been there 3 times and will be back in April. It's beyond anything i thought it would be!!! Couldn't agree more! We've been going there for over 8 years now, at least twice a year and a few of us more than that. Looks like a giant gravel parking lot. It is ... but you just described more than half of Nevada. https://i.imgur.com/B8Rqmqfl.png

RE: spring chickens...

Hey gkainz, That's a nice rack in pic #3 Thanks! I got a bigger one 2 years later ... it's still with the taxidermist. Of course, my wife's comment is the same comment that she makes on all the other stuff I drag home ... "Just where do you think you're going to put that?" :D

RE: spring chickens...

Cummins12V98 asked if I could post these - Front Sight rifle course? We're taking a group back out to Pahrump in May. Still blows me away that they don't have camping facilities there! Lyle It's coming! Just another 10,000 emails from Dr. Piazza before it's done! To be fair - there's been more facility completed in the last 2-3 years than the prior 8 that I've been there. You can boondock just outside the gate ... I haven't done that yet and settle for Saddle Sore ... I mean Saddle West.

RE: spring chickens...

I realized I don't have any selfies with truck and 5er ... this one's about the only one with the RV .. guess I'm itching to get hooked up and out of town to take one then, and once I'm unhooked, I'm too busy playing... guess I need to retire so I have more time for the hobbies https://i.imgur.com/rZSS0IJl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/gGvkVbyl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/KJ3MVuUl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/eVCUaG0l.jpg

RE: State Bridge, CO to Kremmling

I drove it a number of years ago (man, maybe 20 now?) with a 27' Class C without issue. It was gravel then. But, that RV was my hunting rig and those roads were normal for me, so I was fine with it. Edit - I just looked at Google Maps, Satellite View and zoomed in. Drop the little guy on the road for street view and County Rd 1/Trough Road is still gravel (at least at the image timeframe) on the east end, at least. In Street View, you can "drive" the whole thing on your computer to see what it looks like. Edit 2 - I just did the above and interesting enough, as you head up the mountain near Gore Valley Overlook, GoogleMapsSatellite it IS paved! How about that? ... and then it's gravel again on the west side ... so, the answer is "No, yes, no" :)

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

When the wind is blowing harder than normal even for Wyoming, i take US 85 North of Cheyenne instead of I-25. You get one more ridge of protection on the west side as a slight windbreak on that route.

RE: Flipping Axle

I've done a few "spring over axle" conversions. Flipping the axle is a no go. If you flip the axle, the tires rotate the wrong direction and then the brakes won't work Bob, I can't tell if you're being funny, sarcastic or pedantic? "Axle Flip" is commonly used to describe a trailer "spring over axle" conversion, has been for many many years.

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

I use Wyoming DOT website WYO ROAD and downloaded their mobile app to keep an eye on the roads. I travel to Custer and Rapid City fairly regularly.

RE: Essential tools to carry; pole saw.

If any one is offended.. my apologies...I just get so frustrated with posting a well thought out topic and then to have it so twisted around is not in good faith. If you got something to say then make a thread and we will discuss it on your thread but for this to go from pole saws to where it went is ridiculous...come on we are talking personal experience and education...that is why I'm here. Nuff said. Sadly, it's the way of the internet ... once you launch the post, it's on its own and you're most likely not going to herd it back onto the trail again ... but you can certainly try to redirect by example. So, to add my attempt to pull this back on track - depending on where we're going, I usually carry a small gas chain saw and fuel in the truck, a bow saw and folding saw in the camper. The electric saws noted above have me thinking I need to add one of those to the tool chest.
