RE: cops stopping you

Answer #1 : Don't look like a vagrant Answer #2 : If you park overnight, make sure you look like a traveler, not a squatter.

RE: Sprinter Towing

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v706/AprilWhine/Travel/2013%20Alaska/2013-07-09164559_zps3bca4c18.jpg This is a picture of our Sprinter based RV with the dinghy attached in Chicken AK. To get there, we had driven this rig over Top of the World Highway. ;) This is the rig we took to Alaska last summer. We could outrun anything but the biggest engine DPs in the mountains and actually embarrassed some of the gassers. All this and we averaged a bit over 14mpg for the 10,400 mile trip. The rig currently has around 160,000 miles and we have had no problems. The dinghy shown is a Mini Clubman, weighing about 3,500 in the picture because we use it for additional storage. The gas cans on the safari rack contained 25 gallons of diesel, for emergencies.

RE: 2008 Itasca Latitude

This model is a diesel and is the Latitude. Does this model compare to the Destination? Yes, the Itasca Latitude is the equivalent of the Winnebago Destination. I had an 08 Destination but traded it for my bus.

RE: 2008 Itasca Latitude

Depends on the chassis. If it's on the Freightliner, good but if on the Workhorse UFO, then bad.

RE: Wrong name on card - four weeks for replacement?

Good Morning! Thank you for getting back to us so quickly. I see that cards were requested for you yesterday. That request will be sent over to our card vendor tomorrow for processing. I have asked them to verify that your husband's name is correct before they reissue the cards. The cards should mail out on Thursday. I have asked them to mail your cards first class so you should receive them in 5-7 business after the date of mail. If for some reason you do not receive them please feel free to contact me directly @ xxxxx@campingworld.com. Have a great day & thank you for being a valued member! Posted this reply from GS for anyone who may be interested. edited to remove email address of GS employee

Wrong name on card - four weeks for replacement?

I recently renewed our GS Club membership, we are now paid through 2017. Received the new cards in the mail today, and imagine my surprise when my husband is listed with the wrong last name! I called the 800 number to get new, correct cards. The girl I spoke with at first didn't see why I wanted replacement cards since the card I have is good through 2017. When I insisted I wanted cards with my husband's correct name, she said it will be four weeks for replacements. This is unsat. GS Club is for RVers, I don't know where I'll be in four weeks. I see no reason for this to take so long in today's computer age. I would like to have a replacement card in hand within two weeks.

RE: Passport America @ a discount

Thanks for the head's up. I had been thinking of purchasing a Passport America card, the discount helped me decide. ;)

RE: True or False?

In a way, your "ignore the year, look at the mileage" is backwards for diesel RVs. Diesel engines do not wear the same as gas ones. I have a Detroit 60 with ~230,000 miles and it purrs. And mileage indicates it didn't just sit, that someone used it and probably repaired house items as they developed problems. I've had the bus in my sig since 2010, we've replaced the tires, batteries and two water pumps. Side note, the water pumps didn't die, we killed them. ;)

RE: GPS, Atlas, Mapquest and More....

2milesup ---since ya'll are the only ones I know who has the answers, I have to ask what seems Ike rediculous questions I guess: If I get off the main highways (where speed limits are 65-70) and ask for secondary roads, arent they the ones that take me through towns and one lane roads?? You're right, I don't Want no back-woods scary movie roadways LMBO... So if I wand secondary roadways and not highways, what am I looking for?? Thanks everyone, Newbienac I wish I had more answers, Beth. Selecting between fastest and shortest routes pretty much takes up the depth of my abilities with GPS. If there's a way to eliminate interstate highways from the route a GPS chooses, I'd like to find out how to do it too. In settings under avoidance, you can specify things to avoid. One is freeways, another is toll routes, etc

RE: New site to connect with others

Moving around does not give you an opportunity to be meet and really get to know or become friends. I am looking right now at rigs, we say hi talk a little but really don't connect. I wonder if Open Roads forum would mind if we used their name to start a group? Remember the old saying: it is easier to get forgiveness than permission. ;) I would say go for it.

RE: New site to connect with others

I registered there a few days ago and have started two groups. ;) Looks like it will be a handy tool to help RVers connect with like minded travelers.

RE: Rollover accident I-81 South PA/MD border

My heart goes out to these folks. The accident looks pretty awful; It must be a testament to the structure of the RV that the occupants suffered only "minor" injuries. Then again, I imagine "minor" is in the eye of the beholder. Pat in Menifee, CA www.patcarnathan.com Do you really think that mess is a testament to structural integrity?? Really?? I would give credit to good karma on the survivors part, period. Pure junk, folded like the card board it was made out of. I watched the news story linked in a previous post. Wow! I'm amazed anyone lived through that!

RE: Amazon Prime --- Worth It?

I think it's a bargain! ;) Have been a member since Prime only covered free two day shipping. Let's break it down: I am an active traveler and don't want to just sit in one place waiting ten days for a package. I usually order several things a month from Amazon but if I only ordered twice a month and upgraded to two day shipping, assuming it cost $5 per shipment that would work out to $120 per year. Amazon streaming video is comparable to Netflix streaming, which costs $8 per month or $96 per year. If you own a Kindle, you are also eligible for the Kindle lending library, one book per month, and the Kindle first program, a free ebook to keep once per month. The lending library is not new releases but had many best sellers: Kindle Lending Library. Kindle First is a choice of one of four books offered pre-release. I figure this is worth at least $5 per month or $60 per year. And none of these cover the intangible advantage of not burning gas to go to a store. We were in an RV park in Pt Mugu, CA when the water pump failed on the bus. Two days later, we had the very rare part in hand without going all over on a wild goose chase. So for me, I'm getting $276 worth of goods and services for $99. If you tend to stay parked for long periods of time, don't watch streaming video and/or don't own a Kindle, it might not be worth the price to you.

RE: Why RVIA Sticker?

Recreational Vehicle Industry of America The RVIA sticker shows your RV was built to industry standards and has passed certification. Some RV parks restrict home built RVs like skoolies on the basis of them not having an RVIA sticker.
