    Hello Jeff, I noticed you own a Globetrotter, Ram 2500 and Blue Ox. We have a 2021 Globetrotter on order and delivery in August. We currently have a 2019 1500 Laramie 5.7 with a 3.92. Some people pull with our size truck but we feel we will have to pony up to your level for a truck. What are your thoughts ? We are interested in the Equalizer over the Blue Ox due to ease of use. Any advice would be awesome

    We are doing a whole remodel. My husband did demo with a friend, but didn't really document how things went together.
    I think we will figure it out, but we need to run propane lines and plumbing and we are very new to this! I think i'm most concerned about this part. You can see the progression on my Instagram story here https://www.instagram.com/beth_genengels/ Its been the easiest way for me to document it. Thanks for the reply and have a great day!

    Hello Jeff! I saw that you are in mchenry. We are as well. We have been working on a 31' 1972 sovereign for a bit now but have been stalled out and slow going. Hoping to figure out a few things today as well. Anyway, thought I would say "hello." seeing as we are virtually neighbors!

    Jeff,

    Thanks for the greeting and encouraging news on the gas 3/4 ton truck. Which one did you go with? Im looking at either the F250 with the 6.2 or new 7.3L engine and 10 speed tranny. The new GMC and 6.6L engine would work, but like the amenities on the F250 better.

    Safe and Happy Travels,
    Ron

    Can you tell me more about the bed extension. Do you just screw it down like the rest or did you make a whole new piece?

    Thanks,

    Dave

    Hey Jeff,
    I'm sorry - I just found your message! I haven't been very active on the Forum this year. Towed twice, and found the Atlas comfortable and capable. Not the towing beast your Toureg TDI is, though! A bit more sag than I expected, and really can't put much weight in the Atlas when towing - have to load the weight in the trailer. Overall, very happy. Can't wait to take a longer trip.

I have a 2019 Ram Limited 4x4 with the 5.7L Hemi with eTorque and the trailer tow package. I also have a 27FB. I now have 1,800 miles on the Ram.

Our payload is not the greatest, being a 4x4 Limited with options like the panoramic sunroof and off-road package. It is 1,290, probably

AirUSN, how do you like your 19 Ram Limited? What are you using for WD hitch?

We just picked up a 19 Ram Laramie Crew Sport on Dec 31. We needed a new TV for our 2019 27 Globetrotter, due the end of March. Local Ram dealer found on one with 3.92 axle, 33 gal tank & towing mirrors. Looking forward to the due setup.

Bill,

We also have a 27 Globetrotter on order, due end of March and plan to visit during the build. Id be interested in how your tour goes! What color interior did you choose?
What are you planning to use for a tow vehicle?

Thanks!
Jeff

The excitement of having your new AS comes through your post. We love our GT as well!

We were also camping this weekend near Gettysburg, PA and I agree the weather was terrible. But the rain falling on the "tin" roof is pretty relaxing, especially at night.

Just curious which color scheme you selected?
Hans627, what...
