    2001 Lance 815

    I too recently got an older 815 that I'm prepping for a winter trip to a warmer climate. Unlike yours, mine was NOT well maintained or cared for. You scored! Most of my work is based on needed repairs, not fun upgrades like you. Something I think that is going to be on my long repair list soon...

    Alternative Anchor Locations

    2000 Lance Lite 815 on a steel flatbed. Currently mounted with HappiJac turnbuckles from stock camper anchors to rub rails on flatbed, 1" stall mats between the two. Long term plan is side boxes for storage, at which point I won't want turnbuckles blocking that space. Short term, the stock...

    GM fullsize AWD Van Info thread

    Towing. I know the stated specs, just looking for some real world experience from people who tow with 1500 awd's on a regular basis. I'd be towing a 5000-6000 lb trailer on a semi-regular basis for work. Just wondering how these rigs hold up to use like that. The majority of the vans I'm looking...

    Real life MPG numbers wanted.

    Would love to see 15 average. I don't even average that with the truck empty. Average of 18 tanks with truck empty is 14.1. Best was 16 & only saw that twice. Mostly town but some highway. Engine is stock. PO put a leveling lift on the front end. Gears are 3.73 tires are 285/75 16. I'm all...

    Real life MPG numbers wanted.

    OP here with a new setup. 2002 F350 SRW, 7.3l power stroke, auto trans, crew cab, long bed, 4X4 & a 2007 Snow River 9'6" with a slide out. Just got back from a trip to Baja. Of the 2600 miles I traveled in the states (& kept mileage records for) I averaged 10.4mpg. Best was 11.8, worst was 9.3...

    2011 Palomino Maverick 1000SL

    Any Maverick 1000SL owners out there? Found one a few hours away at, what seems like, a good price ($14,500). Trying to get some info before I decide to take the trip; there doesn't seem to be a lot of info on these out there. If there's anyone out there rolling with one of these I'd appreciate...

    Cab over clearance

    Just installed new Torklift tie downs on my new truck. Directions explicitly said the use of a plastic bed-liner will void the warranty. Corrugations of the liner can act as a spring & the reduced contact area of the corrugations makes campers apt to slide around. Bumblebus, I'd hazard to guess...

    SLO's FWC Hawk Refurb/Build...

    Oh yeah, almost forgot: the Flatbed. The flatbed on my last rig was AWSOME! So much more usable space than a traditional body pickup. Honestly, I don't know why any pickup doesn't, at the very least, come from the factory with an option of a flatbed. On one side I stored all of my windsurfing...

    SLO's FWC Hawk Refurb/Build...

    I forget what 'They' (meaning organized local mtn bike advocates) were calling the area across the highway from Gooseberry. Is it "legit" now & are they calling it the 'Avocado Trails'? The last time I was there (5+ yrs), 'They' were talking with the BLM & trying to make it a legit trail head...

    SLO's FWC Hawk Refurb/Build...

    Nice! There's good riding and camping up there on the mesa. If you were there for 9 days I'm guessing you sampled the goods across the highway as well. In regards to the bike rack; go for a front mount hitch. Don't have to worry about it being in the way of the camper door, won't back into...

    Ideas? Need a hard-side with four season insulation and propane heat.

    Nice! Both to your 'name' and the wording of your question! While I don't have a direct suggestion in regards to make/model, I can pass along some info. I've camped at Rogers Pass, BC in a generic S&S camper in sub 0 degree temps, with no problems. That being said, I dried (& kept) both my ski...
