RE: How much are you driving your Toad?

Used to have a 5th wheel so had a truck to drive around. Now we have a MH and tow a Chevy Sonic. Way better to drive around than the truck and double the MPG. this winter we will be snowbirds for 2 months and will probably drive the sonic around 2,000 miles.

RE: 5vr vs Bumper pull what are the differences

Hook-up and un-hook; much easier and cleaner with the 5th wheel in my opinion. No bars to store. nothing greasy to handle.

RE: Great smoky mountain

I think it might be a great, less busy time to visit GSMNP. It might be on the tail end of the leaves or they might be gone at higher elevations and it could be anywhere from nice and warm to light snow again at higher elevations.

RE: Boondocking and Water?

I do travel with water in the tank; however, water does weigh 8lbs/gal. and important factor if you are already near weight capacity.

RE: Itasca Spirit

We have a 2003 30 ft. Class C Itasca with 2 slides. After 1 year we feel it is good quality but some "normal" repairs. We just visited the Winnebago factory in Iowa and learned that Winnebago bought Itasca many years ago and it is sort of a step up but mainly because they all have flex steel furniture. I would buy Itasca with no reservations and feel it is on par with Winnebago. Ours has 30,000 miles is on the Ford 450 chassis and gets 7-11 MPG. We paid $23,000 so yours sounds like a good buy if in good shape.

RE: Chicago to Kansas City Expressway

Must be talking about the road labeled something like CKC. It runs through our area. It really isn't a road by itself but follows other routes from Chicago to KC. Some of it is 4-lane non-interstate but I'm not sure all of it is. The parts I am familiar with through Illinois and on west is a road I would travel.

RE: What exactly does Road Assistance Pay for

Besides towing, it does pay for a service call. We had a blow-out and mechanics were sent out to change the tire. It only cost me for the new tire.

RE: Boondocking and Water?

We try to have our water tank full for those occasions for all non-drinking needs and carry about 5 gallons for drinking. We have purchased bottled water at Walmart also. But many actual campgrounds that don't have hook-ups do have a water source to fill your tank; for example, national parks.

RE: Didn't Believe about the Chinese Tires

I've had several Asian tires on a 5th wheel without problems. My little Chevy Sonic came with Hankook tires, got over 45,000 miles and just replaced them with Hankook. I wonder if there are big differences in different Chinese tire brands just like with non-Chinese?

RE: Starting my generator in my class C without

I don't remove the coach batteries but just plug in the unit often enough to keep the batteries charged. So far have never had a problem. We do head south in late Jan but that still exposes the batteries to lots of well below freezing temps.

RE: low pressure in kit sink

Correct not to use the water pump with city water because you would be pumping it from your water tank. I would 1st remove the aerator from the faucet. That increased our flow so much I just left it out. Should just screw out. Otherwise might have to replace the faucet if the others work fine.

RE: Getting ready to buy our first TT

Sounds like a great find and about the right size for versatility. We went from a pop-up to a hybrid trailer then a 25 ft. 5th wheel. If we were doing it over we would skip the hybrid and go directly to the 5th wheel but the trailer is probably the best bang for the buck.

RE: Planning a trip for next summer, looking for recomendations

We liked the campground within Sleeping Bear Dunes NP and the state park at Holland, Mi.

RE: Use during winter in Mid-West

Sub freezing RVing is really tough unless you stay in 1 spot and have everything really fixed up for the low temps. For 1 thing, your dump valves will freeze and you can't dump.

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

I hope the manufacturers are listening.

RE: extended service plans

For deciding whether or not to purchase an ext. warranty, for me it's all about the true cost of keeping a motorhome on the road over a long period of time. It's going to be expensive with or without a warranty but I believe that in the long run it will be less without an ext. warranty.

RE: Has this ever happened to you?

No, but I would have been on the phone and calling 911 not knowing what the heck he was up to. I would be looking for him to stick a gun out the window or who knows what.

Gaudy colored and striped RV's

Why is it so popular to design trailers and motor homes with huge, bright stripes and decals. I call it gaudy and over the top. I don't know how many people would want just a solid color RV but why not more subtle. I equate it to the old days of cars which were covered in chrome, stripes and fins and many of us started to "customize" to get a less flashy look, then the European look became popular with little or no chrome, fewer ornaments, black bumpers and a lean mean look. I think we could use some of that with RV's ??

RE: Side work while in camp

If you really need to up your income, I would recommend actual workamping jobs or even just a temporary job in the area.
