Howdy. Got a Lance 1172. 2011 RAM 3500 Dually. I have 7500lb Air Bags and the Super-hitch Magnum 30k. We typically tow our Rubicon on a car hauler with a 4ft extension.

Getting some sway I don't like. Doesn't matter if we got the Jeep or not. I bought the Helwig 7272 Big Wig Sway bar, but the mounts are right where the hitch mounts to the truck. I can't use the Helwig with the hitch. Talked to a suspension shop and they suggested adding a couple of leafs, but before I go that route and completely ruin the ride of the empty truck, I wanted to check with you all.

Thanks for the input

Next summer, wife and I are taking a three week trip back to my home state of CO. We are bringing the Jeep and plan on boondocking in national forests land as much as possible. So large chunks of time with no cell signal.

Is there an XM antenna receiver thing that can receive the satellite signal then send it Bluetooth to our stereo in our Lance 1172? Not even sure how to search for that. I donít mind switching a subscription from one cars to it. Thanks

Hello everyone. Iím trading in my 36 ft 5er toy hauler for a heavy truck camper on Monday. Lance 1172. I will be towing my Jeep on a trailer as well.
Wet weight of the camper will be about 5k. Plus another 500 when the Jeep is back there.

I have a 2011 Ram 3500 DRW with a Cummins . I installed some Airlift 7500 lb bags recently. I have never used bags before. So couple questions.

Do I want to raise the back of the truck up to the level it normally is when empty? Or is a little squat desired? .

When I load the camper should I have a little air in them, a lot of air? Basically should I prefill the bags?

Hello, quick question. Well the back up camera that comes on the Lance 1172 transmit to something like the Garmin 660LMT? Thank You

I have made the deal to trade in my 5er on a 1172. Not doing it for a month but trying to get the truck ready.

Thanks for the info on weights. Spanky I already own the trailer, I have the truck capable to pull it, plus if I break it on the trail I want to be able to get the CJ home. What I will do is measure the tongue weight with the CJ and see how long of a an extension I can use before needing the Truss system. Then get the camper to that length. Thanks everyone

Hello everybody, sorry if this has been talked about before but couldn't find it in search.

I have a 2011 Ram 3500 long bed DRW. I am shopping for a TC to replace my 5th Wheel Toy Hauler. (36 ft). I won't be racing motorcycles anymore due to an injury so I am going back to Jeeps.

I plan on towing a CJ on a 16 ft car hauler. (Big Tex). I know the combo will be heavy, TC, jeep and Trailer. I am worried about losing too much tounge weight capability with a hitch extension that is too long. So my question is how much camper is too much with my set up? I am not sure how much tounge weight the jeep and trailer will add. I was hoping to go without a hitch extension, but if I need one, what is the longest I can go before I go too much? How long of a TC would you go with for that set up? Should be I looking for a TC with only an 8 foot floor? Would I be okay with a 10ft floor camper? I would love to be shopping for somehing with a slide, but would that be too heavy with the trailer?

Thank You. I am very new to TC, but very experienced with RV's

Neil
