  1. Can I get a quote for 33 x 15 #1?
  2. Selling because wife wants a 5th wheel, otherwise I would keep this thing forever. It's very well set up for towing and recovery. https://losangeles.craigslist.org/sfv/cto/d/granada-hills-2003-ford-excursion-xlt/6802500758.html https://photos.app.goo.gl/RS6b3tVtPAEtJGbr9
  3. The current rail is a little over 13' long and 68" hub-to-hub in the rear, but I'll probably upgrade to something better in the next year or 2. The max length listed for Yosemite camp sites is overly conservative. If it fits, it camps. I floated the motorhome idea, but we camp off the pad, so that wouldn't work too well for us.
  4. That's what I use. It works well. Back to 5th wheel layouts, this one looks interesting: http://www.dutchmen.com/voltage/floorplans-and-pictures/floorplans-detail/?modelId=24720
  5. Thanks. I did switch to using a winch last season (my remote is yelling at my wife to push the button :D). That has made it easier since -- in our current setup -- there's about 1/2" on either side between the car and the oven/wall once the loading tires are on. Good idea on also using loading tires for the front. Width isn't an issue there, but I hadn't thought about the length gains.
  6. We're looking to go to a 5th wheel setup. Did the last 3 seasons w/ a 27' bumper pull toyhauler (Stealth) behind an Excursion. It works for us, but the towing experience sucks. Want something easier to drive and safer. The problem is that we have 2 requirements that are at odds: must be short enough (<35') to fit into Yosemite campgrounds and must fit a 4-seater rail. The closest I've found so far is a Heartland Cyclone 3418 but the decision-maker doesn't like the location of the stove nor the lack of a living room slide. What else is out there that might fit my needs?
  7. Never have to worry about anybody taking this spot from us
  8. Anyone can time travel into the future, with sufficient patience and health

    Clearly, having a busy mechanic means you deserve to get injured. Maybe he was injured because his mechanic was interrupted while prepping and forgot to tighten something down?
  11. The website is ultra conservative on trailer sizes and a 5th wheel is more maneuverable than a bumper pull. Trust me, there are a lot of spots that say 24' trailer where you can fit. We have personally done it many, many times. You have 3 days to get up there and take a look at the sites to find ones you can fit in.
  12. Upper pines has that many sites on each loop that will fit a 30' 5th wheel
  13. We camp in upper pines and members of our group regularly bring 30' 5ers as well as motorhomes. There are lots of sites that can fit, but you have to go lay eyes on them yourself to figure out which ones they are. The campground reservation site is ultra-conservative on size. Those size limits are not enforced. If you fit, you can stay.
