RE: Moab, Utah early Oct 2019 - CG Suggestions

Either the ones on the north side of town so U don't have to drive thru town traffic whenever U go somewhere. The best located for off roading is Arch View. Just be aware, if you don't ask, they will automatically rent you an 'Improved' RV site. Cost alot more. Only improvement at these sites is you can see the Arches in the Nat'l pk. When Jeepin, make sure to do the easy Shaffer Trail loop. Go out Rt.313 (May want to stop at the visitors center to ask trail conditions) to the pull out for Shaffer Trail switchbacks. It looks alot scarier from the top than it really is.(In dry weather only)go down the switchbacks into the bottom of the canyonlands, past "Thelma & Louise point where they drove the car off the cliff in the movie, continue all the way past the evaporation pools. Watch carefully for the left turn across train track at Tea pot arch. Drive all the way up this canyon (Long canyon) under the giant fallen rock(Pucker Pass) to the top. Get out and take some of the most amazing pictures ever. Continue following the good dirt road to reconnect with Rt 313. Turn right to go back down to the Arch View Camp. Also, see the Gemini Twin arches. Two ways to get their...the fun, fairly easy Jeep trail, up the cliffs across from the Campground or the good gravel road that can be done in any car. Ask at the office. Great trail info. I'm printing it out and its going in the trip folder. Our jeep club has gone to Colorado many times, but next year they want to go to Moab. None of use have spent more than a day there, so we have started research early. I will be driving our "city Jeep" so we will be looking for the fun scenic trails and not the more challenging trails with difficult extreme obstacles. Can you recommend a good 4x4 trail guide book for the Moab area? Thanks all for the great info! BradW

Moab, Utah early Oct 2019 - CG Suggestions

Moab, Utah early Oct 2019 We are in the early planning for a two week trip to Moab, Utah. We will primarily be off-roading in Jeeps (75%) with some time visiting the nearby National Parks (25%). We want a nice developed commercial CG, clean, maintained, good bathhouses, dog area, wi-fi, etc. It needs to be centrally located to the offroad trailheads if possible. We will be in a truck camper pulling a small boat and we will be driving our Jeep Rubicon. Currently we are looking at the Moab KOA. We stay in KOAs a lot and this one looks very nice. We know nothing about the campgrounds or the Moab area. We have only passed thru Moab one time many years ago. As mentioned before, we will be there primarily to ride the local trails in our lightly modified Jeep Rubicon. There will be other friends traveling/riding with us with their Jeeps. Will mainly be on the easy-moderate trails. The approximate dates are 1-14 Oct 2019. Thanks for any help or suggestions, BradW

RE: We ordered a new 1062 Lance today

I think you can order the 1062 without a dinette in that slide out and then add your own sofa, chairs, whatever.

RE: We ordered a new 1062 Lance today

...... especially after change in factory ownership. ..... We will have to see how that plays out. I hope it works out mostly for the good. It would not surprise me if REV opens up a 2nd Lance plant back east somewhere. The freight on my camper was $1,700. I think they usually bring 3 at a time. That's $5k freight cost per trip that could see some reductions with a 2nd plant in the east. I know Arctic Fox tried that many years ago and it didn't work out. We got some Mennonites up the road in Tennessee that could do a great job building Lance campers. Hard workers, drug free and quality oriented. Brad

RE: Truck Campers Ain't For Everyone

Talking about buying on impulse? But how much off MSRP the 9-days used cost? ....do "truck campers" have to be registered and titled in the state where that 9 day purchase was made ? I don't think so.

RE: We ordered a new 1062 Lance today

Waiting 4 months this time of year has to be hard. One thing I have found in life is the older I get, the easier waiting on something has become.

RE: We ordered a new 1062 Lance today

4 months :E I would be going nuts at about 2 LOL Same truck or are you getting a new one to match ? We ordered a 2018 f350 4X4 crew cab drw back in Feb. We got it about 9 weeks later. I sold our 2006 to a friend. We getting ready for retirement.

We ordered a new 1062 Lance today

Supposed to be here in about 4 months. I spoke to the Lance rep Dewey Walker last week by phone. He was very helpful with some of the questions I had on the new campers. If this Lance lasts us 23 years like our current 1996 Lance, I sure won't be around to see it. :) :) :)

RE: Truck Campers Ain't For Everyone

Sounds like something I've done....I had a new Subaru Outback in 2016. I kept it 5 weeks and sold it. I put just over 900 miles on it. There was nothing wrong with it, I just decided I wasn't ready for car payments again. Hard to argue with no payments. :) Back when I was young, poor and didn't mind being up to my ears in hock, I bought a brand new 1974 Yamaha 360 Enduro motorcycle. I was happy with it for about 2 months until my buddy shows up with a new Bultaco 350 Alpina. It was about 100 lbs lighter than my Yamaha and would climb just about anything you cared to put in front of it. I think I lost about 50% of what I paid for the Yamaha when I traded it in after only 2-3 months.

RE: Truck Campers Ain't For Everyone

I estimate buyer lost about $1k/day. I didn't ask the price of the camper; too big for me.

I'm thinking he should have done more research. :) :)

Truck Campers Ain't For Everyone

I was in a large truck camper dealer last week and noticed a brand new (looking) 11' 6" TC on their lot marked "Used". He told me someone had bought it two weeks before, keep it 9 days and returned it for a 5th wheel. Brad

RE: Best Truck Battery

Ive had good luck with motorcraft replacement batteries in our our f350s over the last 22 years. Had one fail and they replaced it for free.

RE: 11,000 BTU A/C vs. 9,000?

That turned out to be the case. The smaller 9k pulled more running and locked rotor amps.

RE: RV A/C Wall T'stat Wiring

Depends on which coleman a.c. you get. The 9k has controls on unit. The 11k has wall tstat which controls a.c. and propane heat.

RE: RV A/C Wall T'stat Wiring

I spoke with a very helpful Lance rep today. He told me that the only reasonable way to get electric strip heat in the A/C unit was to order the camper without any A/C and buy the unit I wanted separately and have the dealer or myself install it. He also confirmed the camper has the pre-cut hole for the A/C and it is pre wired with 120V. That works for me and that is what we will do. Thanks for the responses, BradW
