RE: Mercedes Sprinter chasis

OP here The Duramax in my GMC makes good power about 200 more ft/lbs of torque than the Mercedes, So I was really just looking for people’s opinions after extended use of this platform, and it seems like owners are more than satisfied. Thanks for the input.

Mercedes Sprinter chasis

Test drove a Tiffin on this chasis and it handled well, but it seemed like it needed all 180+ horsepower to get up to speed on the interstate. Is this enough power out West in the mountains? Headwinds? Any shared experiences would be appreciated. Thanks in advance Jack

RE: Keystone owners heads up

Had the same problem with our 2011 Montana Found it when the carpet was soaked. Plastic trim leaked and plastic bottom cover did not drain of course. Checked a friends Montana and he had the same problem but no damage yet.

RE: Turned away,told me they dont accept truck campers

We were also told not to show up with a truck camper somewhere in central Fla (laBelle ? Maybe) No problem we just skipped the whole area.

RE: Heartland 5th Wheels

We have a 2017 Big Horn 3750FL. After 5 months of snow birding we are happy with the choice and would get another. The floor plan was the biggest factor in our choice. Friends had good things to say about their recent models so we changed from a Montana

RE: Fantastic Fan Rain Sensor NG

I am installing a new one in a class C. I've read the reviews on-line. From what I've seen, our old fan from 1998 was truly fantastic. The newer designs have slightly different (poorer) performance. My new installation will be the 3 speed thermostat version WITHOUT the rain sensor. Alas, this is yet another product the the manufacturer is slowly taking downhill... The downhill spiral begins every time these small family owned businesses get sold.

RE: Front living rooms

The bedroom on our FL3750 is raised two steps giving you an incredibly large amount of storage in the two pass throughs underneath The front AC is ducted and works fine A sofa on either side and two recliners facing the 55" tv

RE: Dry bath v/s wet bath

A dry bath means the bath will take up more space because it will have a separate shower and toilet area. That in no way means either are spacious. In fact a wet bath is usually more spacious because both functions are combined in the same space. That's my read on the subject. No dry bath in our future, the wet bath just seems so much larger.

RE: Front living rooms

We have a '17 Big Horn FL and after 5 months of snow birding enjoy it. The living room is large, dining area is a bit smaller Being elevated makes for a bit more privacy in LR Plenty of storage. 2 more pass throughs under BR

RE: Ducted AC return air in fivers

We have a 2017 Big Horn and it is a lot quieter than any other camper we have had both in AC mode and in heat mode.

RE: The ride compared to truck camper

We have both also, the truck camper is my first choice for ride and convenience

RE: question on changing how dinette table lowers

The table in our AF truck camper is the push down style. While I can't answer your questions on cost/conversion ease, it is more stable than the post style and incredibly easy to use.

RE: Owning 2 RV's

Two here also The fifth wheel just seemed like overkill for short trips. Now we snowbird in the fifth wheel and travel in the truck camper. So much easier to be spontaneous with the truck camper we are Always stopping to check out something interesting.

RE: Pros / Cons of residential appliances? (fridge mainly)

Now I start my non-res fridge up the night before at the storage lot and the next day its cold when I bring it home to load up. I imagine 1 battery is not going to run a res fridge for close to 24hrs That's right They aim for 8 hours on one battery. We don't boondock and have liked the residential fridge. Even at home when we lose power for days at a time even frozen food stays frozen for a couple days.

RE: trip to Savannah

Have you checked Rivers End on Tybee Island? We stayed there a few years ago, close quarters but we loved being just a few blocks from the beach. It is tight, but we also enjoyed being close to the beach Nice dog park next door came in handy

RE: Ice maker line leaking

Some models did not come with shut off valves. The line and valve on our Big Horn is located under the kitchen sink. The line runs outside the frame to a low point drain which some may mistake for a shut off valve. It is a common, but expensive headache to deal with until you get it properly set up

RE: Looking to hire mentor/share expenses for 2-6 weeks

If you're only going to try rving for a short trip, i.e. 2-3 weeks, make sure you do it during a stretch of lousy weather. It may change your perspective. Living this close with the love of your life still has a few speed bumps. With a platonic stranger...

RE: Electric help

If you have a reel for your power cord that is one place to look. Make sure you have power to each of the 25 amp legs.
