    needing a 1-inch drop ball mount for my hitch

    In theory I needa 1-inch drop ball mount for my 2" hitch mount, its the closest value expected after moving to 13" radial tires on my camper, which has an SOA lift. I am not finding any ball mounts with 1" drop. Have any of y'all found such a thing? I can't really do an effective search (I...

    New PuP owner - what towing things need to be done?

    Just put a deposit on a 2021 Rockwood HW277 (!!). Quickly realized there's a lot more than just hitching it up. I will be towing with a 2015 Ford F-150 XLT 3.5 EcoBoost (I can't recall if we got the towing package, which had something like locking rear axle or different ratio something...

    Minivan Weight Distribution Hitch Install & Review

    Previously, we owned a very light 1997 Starcraft popup camper. When it was fully loaded, the van needed some help to stay level so I installed some airlift airbags to help lift the back end of the van. It worked! But we traded our old popup for a new Rockwood 2280BHESP popup camper. We love it...

    2007 Cheyenne has a new bumper

    For the last several days I have working on a new bumper for the popup. Started with trying to straighten the old one. Ended up making it worse. So I researched new ones, and most are made to hold sewer hoses and are made super thin. Needless to say expensive. My local metal supplier sold me a...

    We just purchased a 2005 Starcraft 2411. We were practicing hooking up the hitch last night, and it seems very stiff. It's difficult to attached to the ball and remove from the ball.

    Pulling a pup with a 1935 Chevy? Sure!

    My 2011 Silverado decided to suddenly eat a transmission last week, which left me without a tow vehicle. No biggie, except this is going to be a BEAUTIFUL weekend break from the heat here in NC, temps around 80, lows in the 50s, and sunny. That's camping weather and I wasn't gonna miss it. Been...
