RE: How long to keep RV when Full-timing?

Which answer are you hoping people give? That's what you should do. ;)

RE: Looking at Winnebago View

We own a View and took it on a four month trip to Alaska in 2013. We towed a small car and averaged over 14 mpg. It was the hubby, me and our two cats on the trip. We did not feel cramped and as you can see by my sig, we know how a large RV feels. :)

RE: Why did you stop full time rving?

We full timed for about four years but we missed our toys. Bought a house, built a big garage and now are most timers. ;)

RE: FMCA Website

Funny thing that this was asked in the tow vehicles forum since FMCA doesn't allow towables. You don't want us in your group.....don't be asking questions in our forum...:M I had to go look up FMCA :h for a minute I thought it was FMCSA :S which would have been real interesting on a RV forum :E I hope you get your exclusive site up and running soon :B Did you read the previous posts?

RE: Border closing 12-8am

If the Canadian border crossing is closed, what's to stop people from driving the wrong way and going back in through the out door? :C No border checkpoint into Hyder, it was destroyed by Hyder residents decades ago.

RE: Annual cost to fulltime

The answer is very easy and different for everyone: Cost to fulltime = all of your income :B

RE: RV'rs with own washer bumping laundry users for the dryer

I understand the OP's frustration. Used to see it all the time when I lived in an apartment and made weekly trips to the laundromat. Here's what I did: carry an extra towel. If it looks like there might be a problem getting a dryer when your washer is done, just put the towel and a quarter in the dryer. When your washer stops, you have a preheated dryer all your own. :C

RE: Bakersfield to Pahrump

Hi Trap! Hubby and I have made that trip in our 45' bus with dinghy. It's an easy relaxing drive, and you will avoid the climb over Mt Charleston too. That is our route of choice for coming or going to southern California.

RE: Cat hair in the RV?

Lol, AprilWhine! That cat needs to calm down a bit! :) Sasha was sleeping on the dash while we were parking in a campground. Three teenage girls stopped in front of the bus and were talking about her. Really surprised them when she sat up and blinked at them! :B Chloe, the Siamese, is a little skittish, so won't sit on the dash even in a campground. Here's a picture of her just so Sasha doesn't get all the kitty love: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Chloe/IMG_20101224_123658.jpg width=640 Both of these cats go everywhere with us, including Alaska last year.

RE: Cat hair in the RV?

I travel with two cats and can truthfully say there is no way to eliminate cat hair without eliminating the cat. But I am very fond of my two old girls and couldn't imagine leaving them with sitters. I have a Dyson canister that I use weekly, and any cat that sits in my lap gets combed with a dethatch tool. Between the two, I can keep the cat hair down to tolerable levels. As for cats not traveling well, anyone who thinks that hasn't met my cats. ;) My yellow cat took to RVing right away. The Siamese was a little reluctant but she came around too. She won't ride on the dash, but my lap in the front seat is ok fine! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Sasha/100_1015.jpg width=640 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Sasha/100_1013.jpg width=640 http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Sasha/100_1027.jpg width=640

RE: Too conservative for the interstates

Passing on the Interstates is much safer for both the other drivers and you. On blue line highways, limited sight distance and oncoming traffic make passing a large vehicle dangerous even under the best conditions. Besides, it's easier to find a rest area on the Interstates.

RE: Top of The World Highway-Between Dawson City & Chicken

If you drive west to east, the most severe drop will be on the other side of the road. This is the section where we met a wide load hauling a bulldozer, some of the other drivers needed clean underware. ;) Really made us glad to be in the skinny Winnie. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/484705_10151704838963826_1430897080_n_zps1106d44a.jpg

RE: Is this a Campground or an RV Park?

While the words campground, park and resort used to mean different things, people have used them interchangeably for so long the meaning has drifted.

RE: Your carrying capacity?

Thanks for the feedback!

Your carrying capacity?

This is not a request, just a question. A member from another club asked the group how to get a 9'6 vintage surfboard from MA to FL. After several very expensive suggestions, I said he should get in touch with the RV community. MA to FL is a popular snowbird route and he could probably get someone to carry it for him cheaper. One of the other members replied that he has a 40' Class A and there would be no way he had room for the surfboard. On the other hand, I would be able to carry it easily in the bus. So my question is, would most people here be able to carry something like that for a one time trip?

RE: King vs. Cal King for RV King :-)

I bought a flat sheet and tucked it.

RE: Food at Potlucks- Am I the only one?

Once when the hubby and I were walking in the woods, he admonished me to watch my feet so I wouldn't step in dog poo. I I replied I'd rather enjoy the scenery and get some dog poo on my feet than have clean feet and miss the beautiful autumn leaves. So of course, I eat at pot lucks.

RE: A request for cigarette smokers

Some of the military campgrounds are moving toward no smoking except in your own RV. Hope that spreads.

RE: Give Dish heck for dropping Fox News and get a credit

Well I see that we haven't received that link reporting that FNC lies 50% of the time. LOL Probably came from "Media Matters" Politifact And even more: Google results
