9 Replies and 32781 Views Trailer Tires - Load Range C vs. D, Brands  32781  9 Started by  Rich Grunenwald I have a Pace 20 ft enclosed, and all loaded up it is probably around 6500 lbs. It came with 205/75-15 Goodyear Marathons, load range C, and last time I replaced them with the same. I have had three premature tire failures (tread separation) over the years even though I am pretty diligent about inflation, bearing maintenance, and age of tires (I replace after 4 years). As best I can tell, these failures were not due to running over something in the road or a puncture. The tire sidewall indicat...

6 Replies and 8026 Views Toyhauler for a race car?  8026  6 Started by  Rocwandrer I'm looking for a toyhauler to fit a sub 2000 lb 12' long race car. I'm thinking double axle 2-5/16 ball tag trailer around 6500 lb gvwr. Something light and bare bones (wet bath is the only significant 'amenity' we want, and since we only need to sleep 3, it could be added to one without it). I'm posting here because I've basically given up looking for one on the net and through local dealers. I figure if such a think exists, somebody here has one or knows about it.

6 Replies and 4388 Views Financing an RV Question  4388  6 Started by  David Pintaric Anyone have any experience with this... I am buying a used RV, actually a toterhome and liftgate trailer, and decided to look into financing the package. Here's what surprised the heck out of me: the company that arranged the financing thru two seperate banks wants to charge me a 3.50 'origination fee.' On top of that the amount is calculated on the purchase price, not the amount I finance. I found this rather odd, and wanted to see if anyone knew if this was normal in that arena.

10 Replies and 4472 Views Roadside assistance plan that covers race trailers?  4472  10 Started by  JimD We tow our autocross Miata in an enclosed trailer behind a Class-C RV. For years we've had AAA Plus RV coverage for roadside assistance. I've just become aware that this plan does not actually cover our trailer (or any trailer that contains a car). Has anybody found a roadside assistance plan that actually covers race car hauler trailers So far I've talked to Allstate Motor Club and they would cover it, but would require the trailer to be unloaded. Since our Miata is not street-legal,...

4 Replies and 2159 Views Is it time to trade the truck ?  2159  4 Started by  David Lehman Racing a slighly heavier car (300 lbs more), with a lot of weight in the rear. My 03 Sierra Denali with Quadrasteer has 180,000 miles on the clock now, and I don't know if I want to be towing the car with this truck. Quadrasteer is AMAZING, and I have never towed with anything else. Kinda scares me to try. But a new truck, a 2500 HD would have better brakes for towing, (Diesel).....would have more than enough power. My headlights on the 03 SUCK. No XM radio on the 03, and the bluetooth on t...

3 Replies and 3580 Views Need help selecting my first tow vehicle  3580  3 Started by  AMG-RX7 Hello. This will be my first season in Spec Miata. I have towed a few times before using Uhauls and Budgets with mixed results and know the difference between what a good and bad tow feels like. I'm looking for a competent, reliable tow vehicle. Budget is under $7k. I expect to use this to tow an enclosed 20' trailer. Won't be using it as a daily driver or anything. Basically just to tow with or the occasional odd errand. I am located in the San Francisco area. I have done some research ...

7 Replies and 10029 Views Towing with Toyota Highlander?  10029  7 Started by  Claff93STS Any thoughts about the new Toyota Highlander 270 HP/5 spd auto, FWD, 5000 lb towing capacity. Don't really want anything bigger than that and not willing to go pickup truck. It'd be occasionally towing a NA Miata on an open trailer but also doing around-town driving and stuff.We had been looking at Santa Fe and Sorento but don't know if their 3500 lb tow rating would be adequate.

2 Replies and 1516 Views Ford air suspension  1516  2 Started by  RX555 Hi, I've got a 99 Expedition with the rear air suspension that seems to be riding rather low lately while towing. Just wondering in anybody else out there has any similar experience with this and what you think about switching the rears to regular struts/springs. The truck seems fine on regular driving, but loaded down with gear and the car on the trailer the rear really sags (didn't use to or not as much at least). It doesn't seem to affect the truck, just looks bad and seems like a bad idea...

12 Replies and 2765 Views Towing Problem with Car on Trailer  2765  12 Started by  David Lehman Here's my problem....... Towed out to Blytheville for the tour with my 03 Sierra Denali, Featherlite open car trailer and with 911. When I towed my ASP Vette, I would have the rear bumper of the car at the end of the trailer and towing felt good...no real issues. However, with the 911 I figured to move the car up about 20' or so due to the rear weight bias of the car. The problem is that the front trailer axel brakes seem to be locking up prematurely, at at least overworking, because the fro...

14 Replies and 3557 Views A towing quandry  3557  14 Started by  Foglght So, I have choices, I just don't know which one to make. 1. Buy a class A motorhome (or class C), and purchase an 18' enclosed trailer for all the stuff. Car is 2,700lbs. Buy a different DD. 2. Buy a 5'th wheel toy hauler (found a few that will fit a car), and a 3,500 used truck. Use truck as DD. My one problem with option 2 is the towing capacity of a 3500. Max on a brand new dodge ram 3500 diesel 2wd is 14,400lbs. The 5'th wheel unloaded (dry) is 10,500lbs. Add a car, tools, tires, etc etc...

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
24 ft pace enclosed trailer. it has 205/75-15 load range C (radial) trailer tires on it. build dates are in 05 so they are a bit old. Blew out two of them since Blytheville NT.

We seem to haul a pretty good load in the trailer. 2 heavy shifter karts a Miata monster ice chest tires tools etc.

7 Replies and 7050 Views What's a good deep cycle battery for RV?  7050  7 Started by  mwood I need to replace the house batteries in my 'bago. Right now, they're 24 size, RV/Marine deep cycle 12v and I'm looking to just go the same, basic route with the replacement, although I am going to see if a 27 series fits. I've also heard good things about going to 6v golf cart type deep cycles, but am unsure how much modification and maintenence (water levels, sulfation etc) is required. So, what I'm looking at are specific brands and capacities. I know I don't need CCA (cold cranking), as the...
