  1. JT Strong Arm No shake at all when the trailer is un-hooked from the truck.
  2. I've not weighed it on a commercial Cat scale. During those days Warrior was known to fudge the weights. The original sticker inside says 12089. Then I was sent a "revised" weight at 9900 lbs. I can only guess the actual is around 13000 based on others measurements using a commercial scale. Total GVRW is tagged at 16000.
  3. Had a few nibbles on this. As usual the questions is what's the length of storage. It's 16 feet to the first cabinet and 21' 6" to the refrigerator. For a 'small' trailer that's 40' long there's a lot of space. Desert season is almost here!
  4. SOLD! It's time to go a bit smaller. We've enjoyed this trailer for a long time. Glamis/Ocotillo in winter, Needles/Utah/Mammoth in summer. We're feeling since we now only have the 2 seat RZR1K don't need this long. This trailer has 16 feet to the first Kitchen Cabinet. Has 5K lbs tie downs in all the right spots. Insane amount of interior storage. Massive 'basement' storage. Many updates over the years. Everything in working order. This past month replaced the front jacks with dual motor jacks and had Roof Maintenance done at VIP (With Jim) . I've done service and exercise generator, 628 Hrs. (never an issue). Reversible Fantastic Fan with thermostat in Bedroom vent. Replaced Stock mattress (bedroom) and rear futon with real mattress. All Bulbs replaced inside with LED lighting. Replaced TV in Living with 27" LED. with Solid MORyde TV mount. LCD TV in bedroom also. Dome DTV Satellite done by Squatcher in '07 Replace Analog thermostat relay with digital. New replacement Awing under weather Cover. Fresh Costco 6V bats.. Leg stabilizers on front. Tillable 200 Watt Solar panel array. New tires on rear. Built in Factory Freedom 2000 Watt Inverter. Graphics in Good shape on south side. Excellent condition on North side. Had the Frame update and Dexter Flex kit done at RV Dr. (when Jim was still there) Also Replaced 40 Gal "toy" fuel tank with aluminized tank. Ready to Roll With all the updates $23,900
  5. Got ours from a place called "Happy Cheer Stone" in Anaheim. Yeah... Thinking the name indicates a Chinese company. But hundreds of Sq Ft of finished, bull nosed granite in every color you could imagine. Amazing prices!!
  6. I just picked up one of these, just last weekend... Power of a .22... Dead silent. Super accurate. Above decent scope optics. Gamo Whisper Pro Big 5 has them. Always ask if there's a better price.
  7. One of my questions was where to get permits online. The gal said here... Clickey
  8. I stopped by the BLM 'table' asked a few questions... The shock on peoples faces that weren't aware of the increase, and the frown after they handed over the cash and were handed what seemd like a fake sticker. Every comment was "Really?". I didn't hold one in my hand but it looked like possibly a paper sticker. I'm sure it's not. Since it's made to stick on the OUTSIDE of a window. This is the first year since permits came out that I didn't buy a annual pass. I'm going to do weekly this year. The last couple years I only made it out to G once or twice a year.
  9. Thats good to hear, I wanted to handle it myself but have no time. Just picked up my '07 CR from RV Dr. It's worth the update. Floor is actually sold feeling now. Didn't realize it flexed as much as it used to. Got a shock when the discovered the "toy" fuel tank was cracked at the internal baffle weld. Some extra $$ I didn't plan on.
  10. So... I was thinking about this on my morning walk. The year before the initial fee went into place I was feeling Glamis was definitely getting out of hand. People were heading out without "off road" vehicles for the "party". They'd burn what ever was flammable, lots of abandoned cars and trucks out there. For me, back in the day, we'd RIDE the quad or ATC to Comp Hill for the "Mad Max" style show, but we were about the ride, and camping. Word got out... This was about the time we started hearing from good ol' Daniel Peterson and The Center for Bio Diversity. Used their flawed "science" get the "fee" and the closures. The party folks dropped out. They were not there for the dunes, they were there for the "lawless" party. We've had at least a good 6+ years of relative calm. Our "friend" Daniel moved on to be a typical politician (never convicted of a Felony, though left office in disgrace). He also acted like the agenda he'd pushed for in closing areas and the fees didn't apply to him. I recall a story of he and his group getting a ticket for being in the "fee area" Got a ticket, then threw a fit cause he didn't feel it applied to HIS KIND. According to the BLM Stats, visitors are down since the fees were put in place. For the most part this got rid of the people that WEREN'T there to RIDE and were the drag on Law Enforcement. Since then it's been very enjoyable to be in the dunes. It feels again like the people going are there to RIDE, camp, enjoy the outdoors. Now the "law enforcement" has become more about collecting the "camping tax" and "revenue generating" by ticketing campers for silly things (like a glass container){mayonnaise jar}, and passing out "free" frisbees. I've had the rangers pull up, about 50 yards out, and just sit and watch our camp, scanning for ANY violation they could justify an encounter. That must be where the "free" frisbee's come in. They can justify the contact by the giveaway. Now they want to double the fee... So am I off base to think doing so will reduce the visitors even more. To come up $200 will eliminate a lot of folks. I know for me, $200 bucks still a lot of money. And forget $70 for a weekend of "dry" camping... Back in the day we'd have the truck, me and my buddy's ATC's, an 18 pack of CL's, pack of hotdogs (and a can of chili) There's no way we'd afford $70 to "camp". I've got to wonder, in the BLM's thinking, this will reduce visitors even more. Only people going out will be the "old timers" that earn a decent living. I feel as an"old timer" we take care of ourselves. Don't need the "services" the BLM thinks they are there to provide. I can only think NEEDED services is some LEO presence. Some assistance for injures (hopefully rare). We have an honor system, if you broke down, there'd usually be someone, other than BLM, to help out. My conclusion: BLM raises the fees so only rich old dudes can afford to come out. The majority of the "old dudes" have a self contained RV. They will ride the dunes where they're told. To me, this an attempt to keep the enviro nuts happy with the low visitor count? Come on, with the lower visitor count this isn't about raising revenue. So actually, by raising this "fee" it is to eliminate (what "THEY" consider) bad behavior.
  11. I watched the documentary last night, hoping is was not some "T.E.A. Party" propaganda piece... With a bunch of charts and graphs [Glen Beck like] (If it was I would have tuned if off.) I took it as a study of Obama's book, Dreams From My Father, and the history that shaped his ideals. Even Democrats would enjoy this study, IF they could keep an open mind. We're all a product of our youth. It's what makes us who we are today. I had one set of grandparents that were 1970's "hippies", and the other where fairly conservative small business owners. The liberal grandparents, whom I learned an appreciation of the outdoors from (they have a conniption fit that I RIDE and RV camp) always had negative things to say about the other grandparents, the other set never had a bad to word about the "hippy" set. The "hippy" grandparents felt the other grandparents were "Rich", but they were FAR from it. AH the '70's, great time to grow up! This has shaped my opinion that the people screaming for tolerance the most are the most intolerant.
  12. Do these! Bring your own "hardware" http://www.rumrunnerflasks.com/sneak-alcoh...ruise-ship.aspx We do a good tequila, a vodka, and a rum. Pack it in the checked luggage in a pant leg.
  13. I went with a dome, because our last dish would flop in the wind. I'd like HD. Question is: is the Traveler HD mount more solid? Usually the reason we're watching the tube is cause it's blowing! What would it take to swap a R4 with Traveler (or similar) DirectTV HD dish?
