I created a storage area under the bed in the forward section of my Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 19RR. This is detailed in one of my other posts You can read all about it here: http://rvbprecision.com/diesel-stuff/dodge-cummins-diesel/forest-river-cherokee-grey-wolf-19rr-toy-hauler.html One of the problems with this storage area is that it is quite large and hard to access
Like many of you, I’m not a “Full Timer”. I still own a house and a yard and a bunch of stuff! But I plan to work out of my Toy Hauler this spring and summer as my business has me traveling all over the country. Why not work in a different area each week?
I decided I needed something a little larger than my Palomino Bronco truck camper. And I wanted the use of the truck while camping. It simply isn’t practical to remove a truck camper at every camp site. And if my wife or grandkids want to stay in camp, I can’t take off with the camper
Last year I bought a Forest River Grey Wolf 19RR toy hauler. Hitch Weight 574 lbs Gross Weight 7574 lbs Dry Weight 4142 lbs Cargo Weight 3432 lbs I ‘m towing it with a 2500 Dodge diesel that was previously set up to carry a 2200# Truck Camper. The truck has air bags, Big Wig
I recently sold my Truck Camper and bought a Toy Hauler, bumper pull trailer. The Truck Camper tied me down to the campsite and simply wasn’t big enough for the travels I’m planning I decided to upgrade my GPS to a Garmin RV760LMT…This GPS allows you to input your RV’s dimensions and it helps to
This isn’t quite an expedition trailer project….But I guess it depends on one definition of “Expedition”…. I shoot a sport call “Cowboy Action Shooting”…..Grown folks dress up in 1800 period correct clothing and using 1800 firearms or reproductions compete in timed matches for speed and accuracy. There are matches all over the country and this
I wanted to add AC to my Palomino Bronco “Soft Side” Pop-UpÂ truck camper. I didn’t want or need a large roof top unit. Â A small window residential unit would easily be powered for a single Honda 2000i generator or equivalent. I ordered the smallest window AC unit I could find. Frigidaire FRA052XT7 5,000-BTU Mini Window
My Dodge 2500 4X4 Diesel with 100K miles on the clock was in the need of front ball joints, u-joints and brake pads. I was intriguedÂ by all the conversation on the various Dodge Diesel forums about the unit bearings failing and the expense to replace. So I did some research and found three companies offering a Free Wheeling, Locking Hubs kit for our trucks. Dyna Track, SpynTec and EMS Off Road.Â I called Tom Brister at EMS Off RoadÂ Â http://www.emsoffroad.com/store/ to discuss my options. He assured me that all the kits were well made, but their kit was a few dollars less and used off the shelf bearings that could easily be replaced in an emergency. Although all three kits were back ordered at all vendors I checked, Tom said he could have a kit to me in a week so I ordered it up along with a set of non greasable U-Joints. At the time of this article, the kit cost $1495 and the two U-Joints were $110. Shipping from PA to MA was $60. Total $1665.00. The only other item I needed to purchase was high temperature wheel bearing grease and a bearing packer device. The grease was $12 and the bearing packer was $8.
I recently installed new leather seat covers in my 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel. A great product from a company called Clazzio http://www.clazzio.com/ Upon removing the rear seat to install the covers I realized that the seat back is simply held in place by two metal tabs that slip over a couple of metal bars
