RE: Class C Super Motorhome

Look very closely at the fit and finish of the Thor. We looked at two in our search for the 'perfect' rv. the first one, we didn't get past the fact that the slide would not go out, even after techs worked on it for an hour. The second, the slide worked but the fit and finish were awful: parts of the floor were coming up and other parts of the floor didn't even go all the way to the wall, trim pieces were missing or cut short for the space they were supposed to fill, doors were not attached straight. Overall, our walk throughs of the Thor Super C were very disappointing. We found one Jayco super C on a lot. We fell in love with it immediately. We found no problems with it at all. But, it was three feet longer than we wanted. We were willing to buy it anyway but the dealer would not come down from list price. He offered all kind of "special enhancements," free oil changes and free yearly inspections and the like, but it wasn't a value add for us as we didn't intend on staying in the area. In the end, we ended up with a class A. But, if the dealer had been willing to work with us on price, we would probably be driving a Seneca today. There is no way we would have purchased the Thor based on our limited experience with them.

RE: Alaska-Spring or fall and why

Spring. Fall limits how long you can stay before it freezes. If you go in May you could stay four+ months. If you go in September you could stay 1+ month. Heck of a long way to go...

RE: Hot water not lasting

Definitely the cold water temperature. It is in the 30s and 40s here and the difference in the length of hot showers is noticeable from last month in the 60s and 70s. And our rig is new - no time yet for build up...

RE: RV`s with low CCC

and these are trailers aimed at families, whose stuff will certainly exceed 200lbs. Not only that, but the weight against the CCC needs to include the people in the camping unit. Most people don't consider that when buying rvs. Granted, for tts and 5ers it isn't being towed when people are in it, but people weight still stresses the axles, tires, and jack stand. While I understand your point. The CCC is not the static load capacity. They are different ratings I wasn't talking about the static load capacity - I was talking about the gross vehicle weight rating. (GVWR - UVW = CCC)

RE: winter dry camping - hygiene?

"un-winterize" and use all the stuff I got. X2

RE: Plumbing?

I'd rather have a plumbing leak in a storage compartment than in the living area. In the living area, it can be hidden in the floors or walls for enough time to cause a lot of expensive to repair damage.

RE: RV`s with low CCC

For Open Range, the CCC is the gross vehicle weight minus the unloaded vehicle weight, the full fresh water weight, and the full propane tank weight. OR manual

RE: getting cash on the road

ATMs or grocery stores when buying food. You must get your health insurance from a company that sells insurance in your state of residency. Typically, PPOs have the largest networks (I have Blue Cross and their Preferred network is national).

RE: Traveling Rt. 95 South - Beltways

East around both. You want to cross the Key Bridge around Baltimore rather than taking either tunnel (propane restrictions). East around the DC beltway (follow 95S signs) to avoid the worst traffic (Montgomery County). You may hit traffic in Northern VA after the beltway 'reconnects' to 95S between Springfield and Quantico.

RE: Level RV Every Time I Park?

If you are stopping for more than 4 hours and you must leave the fridge on, level the coach. If you can't get level in a temporary spot without taking wheels off the ground, turn off the fridge. It won't hurt the food if you don't open the door.

RE: Vacuum Assisted Toilet

If your tank is full, the vacuum will not run. You would need to dump first. If your tank is not full, the pump may believe it is; maybe something stuck right there.

RE: Fastest selling pickups

Most trucks are work trucks. Crew cabs means more workers per truck. That's why one can typically find a lot more white crew cabs than anything else (at least in MD and VA). Also, its the end of the year. Many small businesses try to reduce their tax load by spending on deductible assets. "Certain vehicles (with a gross vehicle weight rating above 6,000 lbs but no more than 14,000 lbs) qualify for expensing up to $25,000 if the vehicle is financed and placed in service prior to December 31 and meet other conditions."

RE: Use of engine brake prohibited

The signs are very common on roads into towns in the mountains. You see them up and down the Appalachians.

RE: Newbie from Scotland looking to Tour USA Canada

For internet, check dishnet. For us, using our cell phones tethered to our laptop works in many locations. Out in the middle of nowhere, we tend to have to do without. But, in the US, nowhere is getting harder and harder to find. For insurance, we went with Progressive. You can tailor your rates to what you need. Please be aware that prices and minimum requirements are completely based on your location. Our insurance was twice as high in Washington, DC as they are in Florida. A lot of People (including us) have Good Sam roadside assistance. Some hate it, some love it. Our hope is we never have to use it but it is good to have. Good luck with your trip! You might also check out Escapees and Passport America. We have found both of these clubs very useful.
