RE: 5th or Class A ???? - Work and travel rig

The one equation I have not seen in the above very sensible advisories, is maintenance. Class A's require a lot of service. It is not easy to maintain a Class A, unless you have your own well equipped garage. Most dealers are not reliable, unless you bought it from them, they will put you at the rear of the line. Since they probably will not see you again, they are not going to give you first class service. I have owned them both 5ver and 7 motor homes. The 5ver will give you the biggest bang for your buck. You can get a p.u. truck serviced any where. You generally do not need a toad which you will have to buy insurance for and maintain.The motorhome is easier, I think, to set up in a camp or resort.Today's Class A in a rain storm you do not even need to get out of the vehicle to dock it. I liked when my wife would fix lunch for me while en route, and I never had to stop in the A. Be sure the whole family not just your wife agrees with you choice.

RE: Purchasing a MH using an escrow service & insurance ques

My advice would also be do not commit funds to purchase anything you have not seen. Then if you are still interested, set up an escrow account whereby the release of funds is dependent on your final acceptance. I would also lock in the price up front.

RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

I have an acquaintance who will not let his wife use the loo in the motorhome because he does not want to empty it. They both use campground facilities. He has a 250K motor home. What a waste.

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

I am really glad there still some out there that remember camping and the great outdoors. I can't help wonder what the Newbies think of these recollections.

RE: I remember when----???? (camping version).

I remember camping as a communal water spigot with in a 1/4 mile, communal latrines. Coleman gas lanterns, fire rings made of stones, you swam in a creek or at the beach that was your shower. Rarely a trailer over 20 ft long,w/3 way lights. Most used tents or school buses. Seems we had more fun that way, than today trying to show off the latest and the greatest. Albeit it is more comfortable to day.

RE: Can I run a Carfax on a Class A MH

It is just another form of hype to be used by car lots. I ran one on my own car which had the entire passenger side sheet metal replaced. It showed nothing. The car had been repaired to like new, but still there should have been a record of the repair.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

Thanks for the link to a very interesting and educational tutorial on front view cameras. Since I knew nothing about them except they sound like a great idea, this really helped educate me. Ref:link by rhagfo

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

So glad your wife survived and got better. The car looks like sudden death. I sincerely hope she is properly compensated for the pain and suffering she has gone through, not to mention your own.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

Well I guess I got my main question answered, it appaarently does have a wired in power supply. Main reason I ask is I like to drive the Blue Ridge Parkway and would love to reveiew the scenary at a later date. In addition no one can predict when a NUT will come into your driving space, so not being able to continuously record would be useless. Thanks to every one for the information. Now where is a good souce to buy one from?

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

I am not very well versed on these on board forward cameras, but 18 minutes recording time? What good would that be? Surely they can be plugged into the cigarette lighter for constant recording, huh? If not, it just made my mind up, I do not need any more junk on my vehicle that I can't justify. If there is a variation to this battery thing, I am all ears.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

I like the idea and have been toying with it as an add on. I have seen some really crazy******ahead of me. I think they can serve a good purpose. Attached to rear of your rear view mirror would not cause any problems that I can foresee.

RE: Straight Talk phone service

I use Straight Talk with a Verizon compatible i-phone and have excellent experience with it in every mode. Yes it is much cheaper. I use the CC monthly billing and Straight Talk advises me every time they send a billing to my CC and a new service to date. I have had absolutely 0 problems with it. I had a Verizon brick before this Straight Talk with a 2 year contract that was much more expensive and very little other than talk. My i-phone with full capabilities cost considerably less.

RE: Complaining

I am thinking that a good portion of the ill mannered posters probably do not do a lot of honest camping. They are tech-no-crats, sitting at home with nothing else to do. We pretty much all know camping or RVing, as it has become, is learn as you go process. You will always have questions and something will always go wrong. Those that honestly try to help with out being rude are just like the drill instructors in the service. I can tell you, but the rest is up to you.

RE: CG Rules - New Trends?

In the many many years of riding bikes, I have yet to ever see a bad head injury or really any kind of head injury. I have seen lots of skinned elbows, skinned knees, skinned knuckles from riding too close to a fence or a wall. Let me make the decision to wear a helmet don't force me to do something that is designed to CYA.

RE: Fuel surcharges still in place

wa8yxm you are right on frequency.

RE: Fuel surcharges still in place

I think everyone of us knew fuel surcharges would never come off when price of fuel dropped. What's more you are about to get hit with an increase in State and Fed'l fuel taxes. We have squandered our national wealth on useless wars, at the cost of our infrastructure maintenance, national health care, and to a great extent our national pride. Until we act, all we can do is re-act.

RE: Just ended my work/trip... Started with a hit/run

Filing a report is the right thing to do. Just for the reasons the poster indicated. Not incidentally the original poster did a hell of job on the emergency repairs.

RE: Camping World Internet Bully

Go into your tool box and block their address. My spam filter does not do a good job of screening at all.
