  1. AT tires on a TT seems really silly to me. You will increase the tire friction, road noise, and gravel being thrown into the trailer. You might increase braking on other than hard surfaces.
  2. For Canada consider a flare gun. https://www.amazon.com/Orion-Safety-Alerter-Coastal-Signalling/dp/B07HNR7K31
  3. You might notice the folks towing with 1/2 ton don’t have fiberglass caps.
  4. With a 1/2 ton payload is an issue and your choices are limited. For a 1/2 ton with a heavy payload package with a 6 ft bed is limited to an F150 XL or XLT super crew with Max payload and Trailer packages or the Silverado/Sierra with at least LT or SLE trim and the max trailer package. Ram doesn’t offer a heavy payload package. The F150 is more capable than the GM models. Both the Ford and GM need to be ordered.
  5. If you price square aluminum tubing and calculate the materials cost you will discover the smaller ID was a lot cheaper to produce.
  6. Raise Hell with GM. Vehicle features, warranty, options and accessories. USA: 1-800-222-1020 Monday–Saturday 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. (EST) Closed Sunday Canada: 1-800-263-3777 Monday–Friday 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. (EST) Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (EST) Closed Sunday
  7. Honestly, I have never seen a pick up in a weigh station. The normal requirements are a commercial vehicle with a gross weight over 10,000# or a combined truck and trailer weight over 25,000#.
  8. According to one of the factory tour videos on you tube it is 18” from frame to surface on the EII and that’s what I recall reading some where.
  9. A broken toilet mechanism? If I was younger I would get into the RV components business and put Dometic and the rest the yahoos out of business.
  10. My last 2 caps were Leer. After 13 years and 150,000 miles it was evident the Cap would last as long as the truck. Highly recommend the bed rug and the Leer cap option to match.
  11. Chinese circuit boards. Dinosaur is the best option. https://www.dinosaurelectronics.com/Circ_board_des.htm
  12. 12” wider, 4 ft longer, elevated 36x80 twin beds with drawer storage, dry bath, Truma Combi comfort plus, 800 watts of solar panels,, 600 AH lithium’s, 50 fall fresh water, a hitch carrier rated for 250#. In case someone is listening.
  13. You are looking for an outlet that looks like this
  14. The 4WD Silverado 5.3L, extended cab in an LT package with max towing and without other options will have a payload tad more than 2000#. The F150 XLT regular, Crew cab or super crew with 8 ft bed allow the max tow and max payload options. Once you go beyond XLT trim or opt out of an 8 ft bed you cannot get max payload option.
