Come on, you don't just throw that out there with no pictures, part/kit #'s, impression of the performance, ect. . . . . . . .
Is it worth it? I know they're expensive but would you say the benefits out weight the costs?

The kit for my 3 axle Wolf Pack cost a little over $2300. According to all the articles I have read and everyone I have talked to, they say it is a world of difference drums and discs. My unit has been hard to stop, and I hope this helps. When you are driving all over the US you run into a lot of people that like to cut you off when you leave room between you and the next guy, I want to be able to stop.

Thanks for the response. Let us know your results.
As for the idiots of the world cutting me off while towing, this is why I'm looking at a Ranch hand Bull bumper.

I'm tempted to get the "snow"-plough prep-kit and a "snow"-plough for the F250 for the same reason

Anyone looking for this particular camper can get a great deal on this one and I'm throwing in all my camping gear with it. I enjoyed spending a lot of time doing the mods I found on this forum and I'll sure miss it. You are a bunch of great people for all the help you've given me and I still can't get over how resourceful and helpful the people on this forum are. Thanks to every one of you for great advice, tips and your friendship.

I tried to install the fence post sewer storage mod today (at the storage site), after painting it yesterday, but found that there's a gas line in the way, so I'll have to re-make the brackets deeper by 3/4 inch, in order to clear the gas line, and then bolt the fence post to the bracket also.
I've drilled the 5/16" holes for mounting (i'm using 5/16 hex bolts) etc, just need to remake the brackets before I can actually finish the install

Had one outlet on the street side at the had of the Murhpy bed and an outlet on the curb side at the end of the cabinet by the sofa. DW wanted an outlet on HER side (street) at the end of the cabinet by the sofa, so I gave her one.

Today was a wash and wax day. There are two time I don't like my 5er. First is parking lots and fuel stations. Second is when it's time to wash and wax it. :-/. All the other times it's a great joy for my family of four and guest.
