GEARWAGON Trailer For Small Cars

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Let’s Go Aero (LGA), manufacturer of innovative gear transport and outdoor lifestyle products, brings the RV experience to the small car owner with its ultra-lite and versatile GearWagon 125 Camper. A dual-purpose cargo and camping trailer weighing only 560 pounds, the GearWagon can be pulled by any vehicle including those with Class I, 1,000 pound tow ratings.

An economical and convenient alternative to pop-up or tear-drop campers, the GearWagon 125 Camper provides outdoor enthusiasts with 137 cubic feet of cargo carrying capacity for hauling everything from bicycles, motorcycles and ATVs to camping equipment, sporting gear and lawn and garden tools. For the small car traveler, the GearWagon 125 Camper makes comfortable camping possible by providing a mobile habitat that is easily towed by Class I-rated vehicles, with the capacity to conveniently pack and transport all the outdoor living gear needed for camping and road trips. “Well-suited for off-road use, it can carry an ATV or an ATV can pull it. Then, with the ATV removed, GearWagon 125 becomes a bed for sleeping,” said Marty Williams, president, LGA.

Designed to comfortably sleep two with a large storage area below deck, GearWagon 125 offers a combination of lightness, capacity, transformability and toughness. Measuring 93 inches long, 60 inches wide and 51 inches high, it features a durable, twin-wall polyethylene base and an aerodynamic tonneau-cover style lid that keeps cargo dry, secure and out of sight.

Campers can quickly and easily set up for overnight camping using the GearWagon’s expanded tent enclosure, decking panels and leveler kit components. The waterproof, marine-grade fabric tent includes a main body and a vestibule, which expands the traveler’s living and storage space, providing an enclosed entry way over the trailer’s endgate for more gear, family pets, or just sitting comfortably.

To create a platform for positioning a queen size air mattress or to add another level of storage with 500 pounds weight rating, modular, four-panel decking fits along the width of the trailer using the base’s integrated ledge. When not in use, the panels store along the sidewalls of the trailer.

The Solar Vent feature removes condensation accumulation during the night and prevents mold and mildew from occurring. The solar powered ventilator moves 1,000 cubic feet per hour, and will run for up to 48 hours without sunlight.

For leveling and standing when the trailer is off the hitch, the leveler kit consists of two adjustable stabilizer jacks on the rear of the trailer which provide support for sitting on the endgate and standing inside the trailer bed.

Air Lift Kits For RAM 1500

Lansing, Mich. – New load support solutions from towing safety experts Air Lift Company are available for the suspension system on 2009-2015 RAM 1500 half-ton pickup trucks. The LoadLifter 5000 and LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE are industry-leading air spring kits designed to improve ride quality, handling and safety when towing and hauling heavy loads.

To provide additional support for the new five-link-coil rear suspension system of the two-wheel and four-wheel drive RAM 1500 models, Air Lift engineered two heavy-duty towing options featuring application-specific brackets and air springs. Air Lift adjustable air spring kits ensure that weight is properly distributed to all four tires to maximize vehicle stability, safety and comfort. Working with the existing suspension, air springs improve braking and steering, eliminate squat and sway and maintain ideal ride height.

According to Chip Rabey, group marketing manager, Air Lift, “A spring placed inside the coils, which is the typical air spring solution for a coil sprung suspension, wouldn’t provide the level of support that can be achieved by using these heavy half-ton kits.”

For heavy-duty or frequent use, Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000 kit (#57365) features durable, fully-adjustable air springs, which work with the existing suspension to provide up to 5,000 pounds of leveling capacity. For even more ride support, and to withstand the rigors of commercial duty use, Air Lift’s LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE kit (#88365) provides all the benefits of the LoadLifter 5000 with the addition of an exclusive shock-absorbing internal jounce bumper to protect vehicles with heavy loads and eliminate jarring on rough roads. Virtually maintenance-free, LoadLifter 5000 ULTIMATE is adjustable for a safe, comfortable ride, loaded or unloaded. Both kits, which are currently available for pre-order, are easy to install and are backed by Air Lift’s exclusive lifetime warranty.

“Our company is dedicated to providing towing safety, comfort and convenience for a wide variety of trucks, and these kits will provide those important benefits to 2009-2015 RAM 1500 owners,” said Kevin Mehigh, president, Air Lift.

For convenient air spring inflation and deflation from inside or outside the vehicle, Air Lift offers a variety of wireless and wired on-board air compressor systems. Air Lift air springs and related products can be purchased at most truck accessory retailers and online outlets.

They also improve rough ride, body roll and braking and steering.

“The RideControl air spring kit is designed to ensure that two-wheel and four-wheel drive Colorado and Canyon owners experience a comfortable ride while towing and hauling,” said Chip Rabey, group marketing manager, Air Lift.

Depending on the task at hand, the air springs can be inflated when carrying heavy loads and deflated for light loads or riding empty. They are air-adjustable from five to 100 PSI.

Husky Towing Products Introduces New WD Hitch

Morgan Hill, CA, November 2014 – Husky Towing Products announced the most comprehensive product launch in Husky history with its innovative new Center Line TS weight distribution hitch system. The Center Line TS combines weight distribution and sway control in a strong, lightweight design that delivers outstanding performance with significantly less noise than competing hitches. The TS has enjoyed exceptional early response from both dealers and consumers.

“The Center Line TS provides an excellent all-in-one hitch system, giving RV enthusiasts increased confidence and safety due to the integrated weight distribution and sway control.” says Steve Holt, Vice President of Brand and Corporate Marketing. “While other weight distribution hitches with sway control can be quite noisy, the new Center Line TS was designed to be as quiet as possible. The hitch also comes with the ball installed and torqued, so installation is quick and easy – all at an exceptional value.”

To make the product both strong and light, Husky’s engineers employed 1035 steel in a single piece, forged top plate complimented with trunnions of hardened 1045 steel – both have excellent wear and fatigue properties. Used in conjunction with the innovative head design, these super strong materials complement each other to provide the right amount of clamping force to assist the spring bars and lift brackets in resisting sway.

The lift brackets, head and spring bars were also designed to work together to promote a quiet and smooth ride. The round, straight spring bars provide a superior fit and appearance. The better fit promotes superior sway control by reacting to trailer and sway conditions earlier than other products. The tapered design of the spring bars improves ride quality.

The Center Line TS is significantly lighter than competing products. Universal EZ Adjust frame brackets are easy to install and easy to adjust. The hitch ball comes pre-installed and the lift tool can load and unload spring bars as well as tighten the lift bracket bolts.

  • All Ram trucks feature an unsurpassed powertrain warranty – five years/100,000 miles

2014 Ram 3500 Heavy DutyJuly 16, 2014 , Auburn Hills, Mich. – Beginning with the 2015 model year, Ram will become the first automaker to adopt the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) J2807 standardized tow rating practices across all three fullsize pickup truck segments, including the ½-ton Ram 1500, ¾-ton Ram 2500 Heavy Duty and one-ton “King of the Hill” Ram 3500 Heavy Duty.

Ram beats the competition in the two most sought-after titles in the pickup truck market, fuel economy and SAE towing capacity, offering the most capable and most fuel efficient trucks available.

“Because our customers asked for it, every single 2015 model year pickup truck Ram sells will come with a trailer-tow rating achieved using SAE’s J2807 testing protocols,” said Reid Bigland, President and CEO – Ram Truck Brand. “No other automaker can make that claim.”

On the heels of finalized SAE towing specifications that now include trucks up to 14,000 GVWR, Ram has validated its full pickup line with the SAE J2807 Towing Standard – the only truck maker to adopt the standard in all three pickup truck weight classes.

“Ram Truck has been preparing for integration of the SAE towing standard over the past few years and adding heavier ¾- and 1-ton trucks to the criteria gives it more teeth,” said Mike Cairns, Director – Ram Truck Engineering, Chrysler Group LLC. “For too long, an uneven playing field existed and towing capacities went unchecked. We’re happy to be the only pickup truck manufacturer to align with the SAE J2807 towing standard across our pickup truck lineup.”2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel

The SAE J2807 towing standard outlines dynamic and performance criteria as it relates to a given vehicle. Examples within the standard include a number of tests while towing: 0-60 MPH time allowance, tackling the notorious Davis Dam Grade while maintaining no less than 40 MPH for single-rear-wheel trucks and 35 MPH for dual-rear-wheel trucks, a constant radius understeer test while increasing speed and a sway maneuver using aggressive steering input. The purpose is to put all trucks through the schedule of tests in which operators will likely see in the real world. SAE standards have existed in a number of other areas including engine torque and horsepower. Ram Truck is the first to adopt the official towing standard for ½-ton, ¾-ton and 1-ton trucks.

2015 Ram SAE J2807 towing capacities:

  • Ram 1500 V-6 with 3.6-liter gasoline Pentastar – Unsurpassed 7,600 pounds
  • Ram 1500 V-6 with 3.0-liter EcoDiesel – Best-in-class 9,200 pounds
  • Ram 1500 V-8 with 5.7-liter gasoline HEMI – 10,650 pounds
  • Ram 2500 V-8 with 6.4-liter gasoline HEMI – 16,300 pounds
  • Ram 2500 with 6.7-liter Cummins diesel – Best-in-class 17,970 pounds

Polaris Adds More Power to the 2015 RZR XP 1000 and RZR XP 4 1000

MEDINA, MN- (July 1, 2014) Polaris Industries Inc. (NYSE: PII), the leading manufacturer of off-road vehicles, today announced the Model Year 2015 RZR XP 1000 and RZR XP 4 1000 will feature a higher output 110 horsepower to dominate the dunes, desert, trails, race track or anything that stands in their way.

Introduced for Model Year 2014, the RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 brought significant innovations to each of the hallmark Power, Suspension and Agility aspects of RZR while adding a new level of interior comfort and accessory customization. The vehicles were built for the pinnacle of performance with an all-new Polaris ProStar 1000 engine that provided an industry-leading 107 horsepower with a true 999cc of displacement, making it the most powerful and largest engine in its class. For 2015, Polaris ups the ante again by giving the class-leading vehicles an incremental power upgrade to keep RZR at the top of its game.

“As always, RZR has been the leader of recreational side-by-sides due to their ultimate combination of power, suspension and agility,” said Craig Scanlon, general manager of Polaris Side-by-Side Vehicles. “Even though we just launched the RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 last year, we’re always looking to improve upon every aspect of our vehicles’ performance.”

To achieve 110 horsepower, the 2015 RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 feature a new calibration with high-output cams, stiffer valve springs and a higher compression ratio of 11:1. The upgraded horsepower further increases the RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 dominance in power with nine-percent more power than anything else in their classes. A revised exhaust system, incorporating closed loop control and catalyst technology, enables the ProStar 1000 to not simply add power, but also be cleaner and more efficient. To handle the increased power, the 2015 RZR XP 1000 and XP 4 1000 feature new direct flow intake covers, new belt and a new clutch cover with more ducting providing two times more airflow directly to the clutches.

The RZR XP 1000 will be available in Havasu Red Pearl, Voodoo Blue and White Lightning, and the RZR XP 4 1000 in Havasu Red Pearl and Voodoo Blue. All units feature standard Electronic Power Steering (EPS) and will be available in dealerships starting in July.
