RE: New Rig

I'm excited for you! Congratulations!

RE: At what $/gallon would it slow you down?

The question is like: "How long is a rubber band?" Answer: "It depends how much you stretch it." Exactly. Rhetorical questions are impossible to answer. Apologies for disrupting this electric car debate with a comment regarding the original topic.

RE: At what $/gallon would it slow you down?

$10 - $12 / gal would deliver me to longer stays, less frequent driving.

RE: Class B Toad

You always have food, the refrigerator, bathroom, clothes, medicine, sporting goods, etc., right with you. You also don't burn the extra gas it takes to tow another vehicle. ... and you aren't tethered so you don't have to return to homebase to pick up your rig if you decide to just keep going down the road.

RE: Walmart DEF - Check carefully

Doesn't Walmart encourage their low paid employees to apply for food stamps and medicaid? Are taxpayers subsidizing the salaries of Walmart employees?

RE: Shower hygiene

Always wear flip flops! We also carry a couple of over the door hooks in our shower bag. One for the bag and the other for the towel. Nothing worse then a campground shower with no place to hang your stuff. X2

RE: What is the favored air compressor to carry?

I carry this one in its nice tote bag under the back seat of my truck.. Q Industries MV50 SuperFlow High-Volume 12-Volt Air Compressor - got mine from AMAZON back in 2009... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51hYwPsge1L.jpg height=200 http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61YICfUUqiL.jpg height=200 http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41JjZ9BsviL._SL500_AA300_.jpg height=150 A must have unit when camping off the power grid... I usually become king of the camp ground when the kids find out we have an air compressor for their bike tires. Roy Ken X2 Compact and effective. Haven't used it on my rig but saved a stranded motorcyclist and a CG neighbor with a very low tire. Cost me $20 after credits and bonuses from Amazon. I think it originally sold for c. $60 several years ago.

RE: What is the oldest thing you take with you camping or rving?

The drab green wool US Army sweater my father was issued as a recruit. He was small framed way back then so it fits me well. Not only is it very warm but it provides a deep sentimental connection for me with my Dad. He would have been 96 this August had he lived.

RE: It just feels wrong

but we make coffee on the stove the Melita way like we have for 25 years. Official member of The Melitta Way, too. (35 years). The Melitta ritual helps me focus and wake up.

RE: Looking at 2000 Pleasureway

If you're buying a previously owned Pleasure-way, no doubt the handling and other issues were handled early on. When I bought my new-to-me 2003 PW Excel TD, V8, Dodge chassis, the previous owner had already added the wheel spacers. Never had any handling problems. They are GREAT RVs! Good luck.

RE: Selling a Motorhome for Dummies?

Honestlt, I'd leave the mattress in the unit so potential buyers get a better sense of size relative to the space it occupies. Just put a new mattress cover on it, or make up the bed entirely for presentation purposes. Just let the potential buyers know it's the original mattress and the reason you didnt change it out. Good luck.

RE: WE WON THE LOTTERY!, We are moving the US and buying an RV!

Florida would be awesome, we speak fluent Spanish and its my wife's dream location, but I fear the humidity and not as many job opportunities might be a deal breaker, we will see! Southern CA / San Diego and environs is Florida sans the humidity, extremely high temps, and annual evacuations and hurricanes. PS I'm a native New Yorker (Manhattan), and nothing compares.

RE: Want a Mercedes but not a Sprinter?

Nice. Shows you how far ahead of its time the VW Westfalia was.

RE: WE WON THE LOTTERY!, We are moving the US and buying an RV!

Wait! Wait! Wait! You've been dreaming of moving to the US, you're not even here yet and you're already looking for ways to get out of paying taxes?? C'mon now. Pay your fair share. Aside from that. Sounds like you have a grand adventure ahead of you! Cheers!! If / when you make it to California, PM me and lunch is on me! Happy travels.

RE: selling motorhome questions

Bought one for $32k off Craigslist and sold the same one for $29k several years later. Bought another last year, also off Craigslist. Buyimg, selling, and buying again, were all done within 150 miles from where I live, although, I did have calls and email from other states. If I didn't have success / interest after a few weeks on Craigslist, RVTrader would have been my next step. I could have posted simultaneously to both but the calls and correspondence from the craigslist ad took up plenty of my time. Be sure to post lots of pictures and an honest description of your MH. Good luck.

RE: New 2013

Thanks for all the great replys! The vehicle in question is a 2013 PW Plateau on a 2013 chassis located in San Diego. I've seen it but have not done a thorough inspection of all systems. I inquired about a used late model Plateau and when I checked the VIN with Mercedes, they had no record of the warranty being activated. Welcome, in advance, to San Diego! The weather has been great!
