RE: Women purchasing RV's

So my advise to you...and I hate to even say it, is: Bring a Man with you when shopping. Seriously? So, as women, we can help the neanderthals continue their bigotry? Not on your life. That comment is incomprehensible coming from a woman. Why am I starting to smell a rat here? I don't subscribe to the "bring a man with you", which only serves to perpetuate the situation but, I do not smell a rat. I hear one woman's frustration with Neanderthals. The "world", (read: industrial nation males) has changed somewhat, but so has the backlash intensified.

RE: Water header 3/4" anode with drain valve (Suburban) ?

Okay, but what about aluminium -VS- magnesium?? All local reseller in my area (and also Amazon Canada) only have the aluminium in stock, when I think the factory anode is magnesium... so what? Suburban recommends magnesium anode UNLESS it doesn't last one year, in which case it recommends alumnium.

RE: Still looking for my C

Sounds like he really took care of the rig. Since he might do repair work for you in the future, I'd want to maintain good relationship. Off $5500, and see what he says.

RE: Are Most Class A Motorhome Owners Hermits?

Honestly, I wouldn't know because I don't keep track.

RE: Tucson Camping World

Be sure to repost your comment in the forum dedicated to Marcus Inc. I'm sure they could use some relief from the myriad complaints they receive.

RE: Water problem ,,, need help ASAP

Driveway camping is very useful, for sure, but, you will back on this first trip with fond memories and a few belly laughs!

RE: Pleasure Way Bed Question

erip - had not thought about velcoring under the cabinets. Could work for a couple of cushions, but they would be over our head. If they fell it could be a problem. Something to consider though. You could also use straps anchored to the underside of th eoverhead cabinets to hold the cushions securely. Personally, I wouldn't trust velcro to hold them. Should they fall in the middle of the night I'd probably have a heart attack. TD = twin couches TS = sofa

RE: Pleasure Way Bed Question

I travel solo and my 2003 PW was wide enough that I could keep the bed made up side to side. No help, I know. If you make up the beds every night, just place the cushions up front near or on the passenger/driver's seats. You do know that the nightstand is removeble, right? It wasn't clear to me the way I read your comment.

I thought the air-conditioner leaks were addressed, i.e. park the vehicle with the front higher than the back to avoid rain intrusion via the ac unit. I know my PW Excel had that warning, and I just assumed the same was true for my PW Plateau.

RE: 66 too old to full time

Nothing is carved in stone. Go for it now! You can always return to a S&B lifestyle if you want / need to.

RE: Curious About Quartzsite?

I go to Quartzsite for a few days every other year to meet-up with one of my RVing groups. I enjoy it but I'm not sure I'd want to stay for more than a couple of weeks.

RE: Tips, tricks, do's and dont's ....

Everything that is needed for the trailer stays in the trailer. Cooking and cleaning supplies, towels and bedding, dishes, anything that is used or is to be used while in the RV stays in the RV. This way it is never forgotten. The only thing that doesn't stay in my trailer during storage is perishable food. Same here. Perishable food AND dirty laundry.

Deleted duplicate comment.

RE: Few more ??? and then I'll leave you all alone. I promise.

My only advice is to make sure you have a place to sit and put on your shoes and that everyone is comfortable doing business in the bathroom. Yes, you need to actually sit down on the thing if it looks tight. Following that train of thought... Go through all the motions: cooking... reach for pots, dishes, cooking utensils; refrigerated food. Is there room to stack, wash, and a dry dishes and pots. Room for a dish drying rack? Enough meal prep room? Counter space? Storage for galley items including crock pot, rice steamer, food processor, toaster, coffee pot? Can more than one person work in the kitchen simultaneously? Where does the garbage can live? Laundry basket/bag? Iron / small ironing board? Pet beds / litter boxes? Yard pet fencing? Bulk dry food? Lay down on the bed, how convenient will it be if you have to get up in the middle of the night? Go through the motions of making the bed. Bathroom. Take a pretend shower, including washing your hair. How does the toilet flush (hand, foot)? Is it going to be an annoyance after a while? Enough room for towels, paper goods, cleaning supplies, bath mat, bathrobes, wet towels? Is there room to hang wet raingear if need be? Have a hobby? Is there sufficient room for supplies and equipment? Work surfaces or work furniture? Is the rig configured in such a way that guests don't have to walk through the kitchen to get to the sitting area? Is there enough f a division in the event you'd want some "space" between you and travel companion/partner/spouse/relatives? Can one person read while the other watches a loud sports even on tv? Just some activities of daily living to consider regarding the layout of an RV. Good luck.

RE: To B or not to B

Another option: Buy a pre-owned unit, thus avoiding the expense and depreciation of a new one, and test it out for a year. At the end of the year, sell and buy another for comparison sake. Use it for a year then sell. By the end of the second year, not only will you have not wasted valuable travel time, you'll also know exactly what you want and can go out and buy a brand spanking new unit.
