RE: toad

ease of towing, hooking up, unhooking and not having another set of wheels to deal with at the campground or RV park. with a bit of planning and situational awareness you'll find that not being able to backup with a 4-wheel down toad is not an issue. X2 .....Well said For years I have had a car trailer for my antiques if they break or need TLC from someone else. Four down is MUCH easier

Ford, GM and Chrysler cash in on posh pickups

......... Detroit is cashing in -- and not necessarily because of brands like Lincoln and Cadillac. Rather, it's because of high-end pickup truck and SUVs. The "luxe truck" phenomenon, dressed-up pickups and SUVs, account for for most U.S. vehicle sales over $50,000, an analysis by online auto-buying service TrueCar shows. Those trucks make up six of the 10 best-selling vehicles at that price level. It's a boon automakers, adding more profit to vehicles that are already cheaper to build than cars. http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/cars/2014/12/15/pickup-trucks-truecar/20421267/

RE: campgrounds with cable boxes

Yes, it is encryption by the cable company that makes the converter box necessary. They have done this for several reasons. The most obvious is to prevent theft of service. Who hasn't known or at least heard of someone who tapped into the cable company's system and got their service for free? However, the biggest reason is by having a system that requires a set-top box the cable company can then tap into the video on demand market, which is where they make their big bucks. The converter box you get at check-in is usually a special "budget commercial box" that doesn't allow two way communications, but every subscriber's home boxes will allow you to get all that juicy pay per view content. The alternative for the park is to set up their own private cable system with head end units, converters, amplifiers and the like. They will still pay a per site fee to the cable company, but the hookups for the guests will remain as they were in the past just hookup, scan for channels and you are good to go. The downsides to the park are such systems are very expensive to purchase (10s of thousands of dollars), the cable company may decide to not allow the park the use of the current wiring, requiring another multiple tens of thousands of dollars or upgrades by the park. Plus, such systems require an individual converter for each channel the park broadcasts and there is a fee for each channel. Thus it is really only practical to have a few dozen channels at most. Kind of hard for a park to justify a few hundred dollars for a converter and a recurring monthly charge to offer a channel only one or two people would ever want to watch, so the parks are left to decide what is a popular channel to include and what channels should just be left off (and there are certain channels that carry a high premium to include, I.E. ESPN at over $6.00 per month per site, a very high price for a seasonal park to pay ($7200 year for a 100 site park only open 6 months a year since you have to pay for the services on an annual contract with many cable companies and with parks like mine, ESPN doesn't really have a lot of customer valuable content in the summer, since it is really only golf, tennis and baseball where the big draw to ESPN is football, basketball and hockey seasons). So to make the long story short, when the cable company goes to encryption there are only three bad options for the parks. 1. the converter box 2. Big investments in a private cable system 3. Stop offering cable. (for the record, we chose #2, sans ESPN) GREAT response. AND Encryption on the cable system is a real PIA for many newer MH with multiple TVs.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway question

IMHO you will enjoy the Blue Ridge more if you drive it with your dingy and not the MH. You can drive the Natchez Trace with a motorhome easier than the Blue Ridge

RE: Pre Purchase Advice

Very rarely will a used RV or car lot have a service history of anything. Sounds like a reasonable price if it doesn't leak or need tires. Have you checked tire date codes?

RE: Licensing questions

Commenting and subscribing to this thread as we have horses and a horse trailer. Non of the drivers have ever had a CDL or stopped at a weigh station. Over the last 15 years our horse trailer has been towed around the midwest and as far south as Florida. I do not remember ever taking horses to Iowa. NEVER any issues thou I know the trailer is less than 10,000 lbs if that makes a difference. I have noticed that more horse trailers are getting lettered with "NOT for HIRE"

If you are legal in your home state your license is reciprocal to Canada. canada.usembassy.gov/...canada/dri... United States Ambassador to Canada by US Embassy - ?2010 U.S. driver's licenses are valid in Canada. Proof of auto insurance is required.

RE: Down and out in Spartanberg SC

Frieghtliner is located in Gaffney. They have a factory service location there. Their service number I believe is 24x7. I dont remember is they work on RVs on weekends. What chassis do you have? Hopefully Freightliner right now :) Contact our Customer Support Center at 1-800-FTL-HELP (1-800-385-4357)

RE: Full Time

Thinking about going full time and looking for valued opinions. I would prefer a diesel manufactured before all the new emissions were required...2007? And a coach manufacturer that stands behind their product. The addition of requiring DEF started with diesel engines manufactured in 2010. IMO- One of the best things about the 2007 and newer engines is the much reduced diesel fuel smell compared to earlier versions. Cummins and Frieghtliner both say there is also improved fuel mileage.
