RE: UFO chassis?

In 2008 Winnebago made a model called the Destination and it was a UFO rear engine gas model. If you goggle "anyone selling a Winnebago UFO with rear gas engine" it put me on a Winnebago Destination UFO website page. It was a PDF file that I didn't care to download! Hope this helps you Good Luck.

RE: Another travel route suggestion question

I'm interested in that route also Mark so I'll be watching this post! Last time I was down that way I didn't know what type of road it was so I passed! (I wanted to go to Canyon De Chelly)! I went to Lake Powell instead! I didn't regret that trip, taking a boat trip to Rainbow Bridge National Monument!

RE: Looking for experience with either Regul or Hercules Tires

I ran Hercules tires on a 43' trailer (Can) owned by the Port of Tacoma, before I retired and was driving (OTR) over the road! No problem with them overall, but they were the hardest rubber tire I ever experienced in 44-1/4 years driving OTR.

RE: Gas vs Diesel

IMHO, it comes down to pulling power and comfort! A gasser pays less for fuel ( the cost difference between gas & diesel. Maintenance like a oil change and grease job the shop that I go to charges $69.00 gas & $300.00 diesel. DP's have air ride which is really nice and can tow heavier vehicles.

RE: Chassis build versus motorhome build

I own a 2004 Winnebago on a 2003 Winnebago Chassis! RV manufactures buy chassis in bulk (because they get a better price) quite often the RV Manufactures can't use all the chassis for a given year so they start the new year with the old chassis until there gone. On the outside of your RV on the curb side, is a Manufacture Tag stating what year your coach was built, example: 01-04, this tag will signify the true year of your coach. The year that is on your manufacture tag is the year of your coach. There can be pitfalls when your chassis year doesn't coincide with the manufacture year as you discovered the Department of licensing in some States are not aware of this. Another pitfall is if the manufacture has a chassis change year! You need to be aware of this! In my case Winnebago had a chassis change in 2004, as I stated my chassis is a 2003 so when I go to buy new shocks for example I have to buy shocks for a 2003 Winnebago even though my coach is registered as a 2004. Hope this helps you.

RE: lightening strike?

Its an older coach, 97. Yes it was plugged in. Storm came outta nowhere! Guess we have alot of research to do. Thanks for all the good info., except the 1 iron! Sorry you didn't like the Tex Mex ( Golfer Lee Trevino) humor! It wasn't met to be personal! Whenever, there is a lightning storm, I always think of Lee out on the fairway holding up his 1 Iron and Saying GOD can't even hit a 1 Iron! And, Lee was never hit by lightning when he was on the Pro Golf Tour!

RE: lightening strike?

In the future if your aware of lightning in your area unplug your coach! Next climb up on the roof of your coach and hold a 1 Iron high the air. You know what Lee said about a 1 Iron! Nothing to worry about until the next storm!

RE: Route Plan

Mark, last time that I went to Monument Valley I took the scenic route I-15 South to Spanish Fork, then onto Hwy.#6 to Price, then Hwy. #191 to Moab. Then I followed Hwy.#191 from Moab, South thru Monticello, Blanding and Bluff. At Bluff I turned onto Hwy.#163 down thru Mexican Hat into Monument Valley. Mark, when going thru Bluff, I highly recommend stopping off at Navajo Twin Rocks Cafe and ordering the Buffalo Stew with Indian Fry Bread!

RE: Seasonality of used RV pricing

I bought my coach in mid January in Washington State! RV sales are slower during the winter in Washington State!

RE: Stick with truck camper or go for RV?

I would stick with the T/C if your going to be using remote roads, sandy beaches and muddy, rocky trails. If you can afford to upgrade I would go that way, but still stay with a T/C and a 4x4 truck. JMHO

RE: Leaky grey water tank

I hope you don't have to do this if the tank won't drop you might have to go thru your flooring to get to the tank. Good Luck!

RE: Towing 4 down

The Yaris is the same as my Pontiac Vibe and I've towed my for over 40,000 miles with no problem. It is a manual transmission. I just turn my key to acc and make sure every electrical accessary is turned off. It is easy to tow. X-2, for those of you that are not aware the Vibe is mostly built by Toyota.
