Waved bye-bye to my 2008 Jayco

She served us well but little things were cropping up and I'm lazy. We also wanted 2 AC units and a larger bed - so we went looking. Intending upon another modest fifth we instead went grand. This led to additional needs.


Welcome 2017 Heartland Big Horn 3755FL.
Goodbye 2014 F250, hello 2018 F350 dually.


Next week the bulldoziers will punch a hole in the woods and drive upon material/fill brought in; then a 24X48X14 pole barn, then new 50A electrical service.


I'm sure I'll hang around for awhile but its natural to slowly move away. Thank you to all who helped me when needed.

Congrats on your new rig! Looks beautiful

There are lots of great folks over on the Heartland forum. I used to own one and I still lurk around over there from time to time.

Congratulations! Nice rig. I almost bought a Big Country in 2011 and still check in over there occasionally.

Dang, go big or go home must be your motto! Why mess around, right?

Congratulations and enjoy.

2011 351RLTS Eagle, Mor/Ryde suspension & pin box


My new unit has the Morryde pin box but I believe only whatever is standard for the suspension. Any advice there? My thinking is as big (and heavy) as this 5th is it may be worth looking in to.

I've been reading up on MORrydes independent suspension and grease-able bolts, but have no background on them. Should I, and at what cost?

The CRE3000 is the standard suspension on mine. The wet bolt kit option can be purchased from Mor/ryde. I had had no problems with my suspension. I have an appt in a few weeks to have NeverFail spring shackle bushings installed. I have the wheel bearings inspected and re-lubed every other year.

Four years ago I had no slides (24' HiLo); its walkway was maybe 20" wide - no room for two adults, two large dogs and two grandboys. Hello 2 slide Jayco.
