There is 72" floor to ceiling in the front bedroom and 2 storage bins up front. The left one has the propane tanks and in the right are 4 6v batteries.

The search is over. Had to take Hovergirl over the hill to Ashland for a MRI to day so rather than read old magazines I go on a cruise looking for a tv. And there is a Cobalt Blue F-250 Super Duty Crew Cab with tow package. One owner 85k clean inside & out. 460 though not the TD I was hopeing for. Well life is a compromise. They're fix a few things I found on inspection and it will be here tomorrow. Happy Days! BTW.. anyone cruising I-5 in S.Oregon should take the time to pull off and se Ashland. Very neat & pretty little town.

Sorry but had to step away from the keyboard for one of Hovergirls yummy plates of pasta. A little wine too of course. The Ford ia a '97. It's a very nice truck. It's been well cared for. It will do well until we can get that desired TD. How is the repair to the landing gear going?

Hey great! on the truck!
That will feel good being able to hook the LE up and head on out for a weekend. Does it have a hitch already?

No. It has a tow package and brake controler but no fiver hitch. Thats the next step I guess. The LE owner has a 15k hitch for sale maybe I'll get that. He was going to keep it but has now changed his mind. This fiver stuff in all new to me so I got a lot of lerninto do.

I was kinda wondering about that. The 5'r hitch is a different ball of wax then the bumper pull, but I think a little more user friendly over all.
I have a 16K hitch, for reference sake.. Sean has a 20K (i seem to recall), but the trailer is rated for 15k and you don't load it heavy with bikes anyway. I wonder what that guy was selling (or giving?) his hitch for? and what kind was it? A swivel hitch? would you ever drive off the ol' asphalt with it up there in Oregon? That 15K would be a good match.

He is asking $300. He said it cost $500. Does that sound right? Well we may get off the road a bit. There are some nice lakes and BLM parks east of KFals. Between here and Lakeview on the map. And up north of Bend are some great dry campin areas. If I cand find the pics I have I'post them. Here are some I found on the net.

Dave:

If the 15k is just a couple of years old, that's a pretty descent price- and yes...about $500 new, but of course, that doesn't include installation- count on about $200 for that.

Thanks Sean. As I said to Mike this fiver stuff is all new to me. Checked a lot of sources to day ant the $300 looks better all the time. It's in new condition. I have been told a two hour install. Independents here are charging $50-$60 an hour. The truck is looking good to. Did some background and vin checks show one owner purchase in Or no flags. It also has been well cared for. But of course being used it caveat emptor.

Dave:

One thing to watch out for...if your TV is a 2005 or newer (wich based on the mileage you gave it isn't, but I wanted to make sure people knew this), and you want the brackets welded, you need to watch out for this FordBullletin about welding to the frame of these trucks. Evidently, the electronics of the newer trucks are more sensitive to any type of welding/plasma cutting on the truck...

FYI...(I learned this through TDS, but be careful- this site will scare the crap outta 'ya!!).
