Had some time I did not need to waste (rant)

But I did


After reading at another site I am really questioning if my truck is powerfull enough to haul me safely to the store.

HMMMM I get so sick of some of the other site my truck is better than your truck threads.


Maybe I should not go back there.


These tow police would kaka there pants if they seen my fathers first rig.

It was a custom built cabover on a 1969 Ranchero GT with a 302 and no doubt the camper was heavy. But we traveled the country and survived.

Got to find pics of that setup it was so cool!

Dont get me worng I am not approving an unsafe set up but gees will my truck haul me?

I guess I need a 5500 to haul the grocerys home safely

Ok my rant is over

I'm thinking of mounting a 5'er hitch to my Road King and towing with it. I think my truck is waaaaaaay to powerful for my use.

I believe that with the dual wheel upgrade, the super-chip, custom exhaust, spoilers and the JATO rocket packs, my new F-150 5.4L will tow my daughters Radio Flyer wagon across reasonably level terrian without a great deal of problem. Provided of course, the WD and sway control are set up right.

Radio I hope you have the proper tire pressure when you haul your daughter's wagon.

If you have load range ZZZZ and the wrong tint on the windows you may be in trouble!

Those kind of threads do get tiresome. Considering RV pride, I'm a bit surprised and pleased we don't see much of it.

We don't stand for that 'round these parts. We may sit down a bit but we will not stand for it.

Hey Radio,

Does that rig have the dual over-head sun visors and high-compression floor mats? If not they would be a great upgrade.

Someone's been hangin' out over on ''The Dark Side'' again!

What strikes me funny...and this is true on most RV forums...
Most people get along fine when talking RV's...but when it comes to Trucks and towing ... everyone has very strong opinions...and sometimes they try to jam it down your throat.
