Hello fellow campers, boondockers, and traveling gypsies, I posted a page yesterday and it seems it got lost somewhere in cyber space, so trying to remember what was said on that post, I will try to regain some of the info on this post.
So after having repaired all the rot on the CAVELCADE, I loaded it on my truck and it felt a little tipsy. So I went to the scales close buy and figured out why. My truck is 6600 lb GVWR stock. Even with the extra heavy duty shocks on the front, 10 ply…Continue
