  1. There you go again dbart.......making me laugh out loud while sitting at my computer at work!
  2. Exactly! Try to build a nice name brand car with a 2d and an LS motor in it. You are hardpressed to get it done for under 40k when you add all the stuff that you want on it.
  3. Check out Smartwhips. They are incredible.They have gone to a new style base which is much larger than their original base. The whip itself is very sturdy so that you can run a large flag on them if you wish. They are programmable from your smart phone. Kinda cool!
  4. Always looking for a project aren’t you?
  5. Great job on the conversion. I’m thinking about doing the same thing on my Gen 4 Hustler 4. Are you thinking about running the 17 inch wheels in the rear?
  6. dbart..........you are one funny mofo!!!
  7. Loaned your front wheel out so someone else could make it back to camp. Then,they will run it back out to you.
  8. Thanks sandpsycho,that is exactly what I was thinking. With the weight of the person sitting in the seat distributed on the four tabs,I thought it would be fine. I just wanted some opinions from you experts. Thanks!
  9. I came across some seats that I want to purchase for my car. The only problem is that the mounts on the seats are 16” on center in width and my seat tabs on the car are 18” on center. Is there a SAFE way to mount them without retabbing the seat mounts?
  10. I agree with Richard and Rockwood. That is a nice 5th wheel and your price seems reasonable. Be patient.
  11. I have had a WW fifth wheel, a class C and now have a DP. The WW was nice,very little maintenance, but like you said, when you get to the dunes late you have to unload the rail and set up camp, potty stops along the way,etc. Also, when a storm rolls in,your car sits out in the weather(covered or not) or if you have had a wet,muddy weekend at the dunes,you drive your dirty car into your living space when you load up to go home. Your living space smells like fuel too. These were not that big of a deal,but just pointing them out. The great thing about a fifth wheel is the low maintenance,the one you have is beautiful and modern, and your tank capacities are made for dry camping. Hard to beat that. Going to a Moho,be it a C or a DP, the enclosed trailer becomes your garage. All that goes with your rail and toys stays in the garage.I pull my buggy into my enclosed every night when I am at the dunes .Peace of mind helps me sleep better. The class C was great,but lacked towing capabilities ( 5k lbs max) and tank capacities. The DP,for my needs, is awesome. The cost of maintenance is higher,but towing ability,stopping ability and comfort and convience is nice to have. You can pull in to the dunes late at night,drop the jacks,extend the slides and crash out. I bought a 2002 from a friend that was garage kept and only had 32k miles on it. It has been awesome with very little problems. Most maintenance is easy to do for most of us on this board. There are pros and cons to all of the different scenarios,but for me the DP and enclosed trailer is the way to go.
  12. Thanks for all of the replies. We ended up calling Dicks Towing and Jimbos towing. I think they are affiliated or are friends. Although we went through Jimbo,they both came out together. They each had those huge 10 wheel tow trucks with the 25k lb wenches on them. Pulled us out no problem! And we were deep deep deep!!! I’m quite sure we found the Bermuda Triangle. It’s super deep over there. Anyway,thanks for the replies. The two guys that helped us were awesome and I would highly recommend them. They charge an hourly rate of $270/hr. Well worth it when your DP is buried in the sand. Thanks again, Dune Doc
  13. Hey guys. We are camping about 200 yards south of the end of plank road towards the border fence. We have camped here many,many times,but this time there seems to be a lot of really deep areas of sand that did not exist before. We got a couple of diesel pushers stuck and need a hand yanking them out. Does anyone have a recommendation for a towing company down in this area? Thanks in advance.
