7 Replies and 2525 Views Burns oil only when towing  2525  7 Started by  jbmoore I have a 1998 Dodge Durango with 88,000 miles on the 5.2 V8 that I use to tow my CP car. Funny thing is that the engine doesn't seem to burn any oil unless I am towing. Then it burns about 1 qt every 1000 miles or so. The car and trailer together weigh just under 4000 lbs and the Durango barely notices the trailer is back there except on really steep hills. I have never noticed any smoke from it, and the power seems to be good. Once I have been driving for an hour or so on the highway a...

2 Replies and 829 Views 1 Ton Dually Transmissions  829  2 Started by  drmenefee I am looking for a 1 ton dually and have a question about the transmissions. For pulling trailers is it better to have a standard or automatic If standard is best should it be a 5 or 6 gear transmission. I'm from the old school and like a standard transmission with as many gears as is reasonable for the job. What about a positive trac rear ends or are they now called a locked rear ends Are there any split rear ends or overdrive set-ups

Does anybody know anything about this I had the idea a while back that renting such a rig would be a great way for several of us in our region to avoid having to make the 2000 mile round trip in our competition vehicles (most of us do not have tow vehicles and are using our competition vehicles to tow tire trailers). I'd just like to get some ideas on who to conta...

43 Replies and 9567 Views New enclosed race car trailer - Tie Down questions  9567  43 Started by  S2kTas
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
Let's call this a 'Really Nice Christmas Present'I have ordered a new enclosed car trailer for our Honda S2000. The trailer (by H & H Trailers), is being built during the next 8 weeks, and have a few questions on Tie Downs. The trailer is 20 foot long and 102 inches wide, with a 30' V-nose front. There will be E-track built into the floor for tie downs. My first thought, is to use over the wheel tie downs, (some people call these Wheel Bonnets), that ratchet directly to the E-Track. Questio...

18 Replies and 15592 Views Putting really low car on trailer???  15592  18 Started by  weasel KP61 I just bought a trailer that is a little over 1 ft high and just barely fits my car. The problem is i can only load it at the bottom of my driveway (so it's a shorter height to go up) How do i drive the car on and off the trailer without hitting the bottom The ramp i have is 6ft long though is very narrow and isn't that strong. What are some ways i can get my car on and off the trailer on flat ground

5 Replies and 1037 Views older dodge 3/4 ton diesel, good idea or no?  1037  5 Started by  skierd I stumbled across what I would consider a big ass truck for sale locally, a 1993 Dodge Ram D350 crew cab, diesel, dually, auto that has 100k on it. The current owner pulled a 5th wheel camper behind it, which bothers me, but the price is right at around $6500. Does anyone here have experience with these old beasties How bad would they be to live with on a mostly daily basis, understanding they get good for truck but still horrid mileage and the size Its complete and utter overkill for what...

26 Replies and 3057 Views $10k Diesel Budget (E-350 vs G3500)  3057  26 Started by  Mugenlude
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I'm considering purchasing a seperate diesel tow vehicle. It will be towing a combined 3500 car/trailer load, plus tools, wheels/tires, etc. I don't see the weight being an issue considering I'm looking for a diesel. My budget is around $10k. My choices seem to have come down to late '90's E-350 (7.3L Powerstroke) or G3500 (6.5L) cargo vans. The other option is a '94-95 Suburban (2WD) (extra seating would be nice), but those years seem to have problems with injection pumps and obvio...

9 Replies and 1257 Views Used full-size SUV opinions  1257  9 Started by  NoCones Hopefully, I'll soon be in the market for a tow vehicle. It won't be a daily-driven vehicle, but will be called on from time-to-time to carry a couple big mutts around town and run other errands like Home Depot trips. It will also probably serve as a family-vacation-mobile. I'm starting to look at used Expedition/Navigators, Tahoe/Yukons, Sequoias, and Armadas. Hoping to stay at/under $20k. Looking for opinions on these vehicles...which you think would do the job best...years to have/not ha...

3 Replies and 964 Views toter homes...  964  3 Started by  rerun Are the things large enough / comfortable enough for someone to live in 365 days / yr I'm thinking if I move to a large city it may be more economical to buy a toter home than a house. You can live in your car, but you can't race your house. (But maybe you can bring your house with you)

5 Replies and 847 Views Trailer on the blink.  847  5 Started by  Sphinx I've got a 13 year old Econo open deck trailer. And I'm using a prodigy controller. Weirdest thing that happens is that I occassionally get the SH (shortcircuit) or oL (overload) indicators on my Prodigy controller. Happens intermittently. And then it didn't happen for the last 6 months when I've pulled the trailer w/ no load. Tonight, though, after I loaded the trailer, it starting going nuts again. Maybe I'm crazy here, but what could possibly be going on to cause this condition only when...
