RE: Newmar and Tiffin

Both brands have a reputation of building quality motorhomes. Both have advantages. Pick the model, FLOORPLAN & price that works best for you. If used ask for service records.

RE: RAM 2500 6.4 Hemi 3.73 gears, Looking for Opinions

You should be just fine with any 3/4 ton (2500 type) towing only 7250 lbs max travel trailer with 3.73 gears. My wife has a 09 Chevy 2500 CC 4x4 3.73 with a primary use of towing a horse trailer about your weight or sometimes more. We bought the truck new & never have thought we could have used a lower gear. I was not aware any Ford F250 trucks had engine/cylinder deactivation technology.

RE: Anyone towing Ford 150 with 43 ft

We are about to start full timing & just purchased a 42 ft pusher & looking at a Ford 150 to flat tow. We will have a Remco lube pump installed. Please share your thoughts and experiences pulling this size vehicle. I would appreciate any advice you can share. Thank you for your comments??. The F150 needs to be 4WD to be towable with the above posted directions

RE: Truck stop or Cummings shop for filter and oil change?

We have a Bridgeway Cummins shop by us. I've been going there for years. Really great very professional guys. I trust them and their work is top notch. They even go as far to suggest alternatives to the standard maintenance schedule as shown in the owners manual which wouldn't compromise the warranty and save some money. X2 !

RE: Rust Underneath on Chassis

Nothing to worry about unless you winter travel here in the rust belt. Spent some time this year helping friends look for used MH and we saw some real rusty stuff here in the midwest. Rusty basement compartment frames, windshield frames & Chassis frame extensions are probably the biggest early problem areas. All quite expensive fixes.

MH fire at NSRA event

A 2002(?) Monaco Diplomat burned last Thursday night in the campground for the NSRA (National Street Rod Assoc) Northern Nationals in Kalamazoo Michigan. I was told the owners dog woke them up and everyone escaped safely. Looked to me like fridge fire & I heard the owners said two recalls had been performed. No coverage by local newspaper, so far

RE: What insurance companies cover high value motor homes?

As with any insurance company, time changes everything. Full timer insurance also contains a "homeowner liability" contract so it's more expensive. Like MrMark, we carry large coverage amounts. However, I carry a $1k collision and $500 comp. deductibles. Also, when your rig reaches the magical 10 year mark, replacement coverage goes away and it becomes an agreed upon replacement amount, negotiated between you and the carrier...Dennis Good info Dennis, I would like to emphasize get the agreed upon value in writing and be aware many insurance companies like to revalue at the time of a loss.

RE: rusting out cargo bins

Found another Winnebago rust posting. http://forums.motorhome.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28229227.cfm I was actually searching for a previous article for OP showing storage bay restoration from rust. Cant remember where it was posted or printed. Quite sure the MH was an American Coach. There are also some real rust disasters on normal vehicles over 8 years old on Michigan roads. Road salt is a real killer.

RE: Emergency Escape - What to Do??

We have the rear ladder extension section stored & easily accessible in our bedroom closet for emergency use. This was previously suggested in an RV online forum.

RE: full time options

1)Been thinking about looking into a class A (gas) in the $100,000.00 range Max (MSRP), don't think I could afford anything decent in a diesel pusher. You should be able to buy a new $100k MH for about $75,000. There are some awesome used DP motorhomes in that $75-100 range that would make a much better full time home than a new gas powered motorhome in same price range.

Roll Call posts- where did they go?

Just wondering what happened to the Roll Call 2015 etc threads? There was some great information on Alaska travel.
