RE: Campground pricing.

I'm going to estimate $30-$40/day for private campgrounds with full hook-ups. Much less if you go with state parks, national parks, etc. And don't rule them out as they are better than private in my opinion and often with water and/or elec.

RE: Worry About Possible Problems

I do worry some about any RV and our recently acquired 2003 Class C motorhome and there is plenty to worry about to be sure. But I sense you need to lighten up or decide you just aren't cut out for an RV? Really, an equipment failure can be frustrating but there is someone around that can repair whatever it is and get us back to RVing as long as we can pay. It kind of boils down to patience and money. If we really can't afford to fix any and all repairs, then it's time to get out.

RE: Organizing, where do you put your sewer hose??

In the bumper. No problems.

RE: Personalized plates

I don't get why I would want them, especially if they cost more.

RE: What would you do, RV getting old!

Don't know your financial situation but 99 is pretty old and it's not going to take long to spend more than it's worth if you haven't already. But still, depends, can you afford one nice and new enough to be sure you won't have to continue to face repairs. "upgrading" to a 2000 might not help too much but I'd say, start looking. In your case, the low miles doesn't mean much.

RE: Great RV Escapes Savings System???

I wouldn't even think about it.

RE: Carrying a Generator/Gas Can While Traveling

Generator, covered with upside down tote, in the rear left in the bed, chained to truck and can in the bed also. Leave generator put as the trailer cord will reach.

RE: Tips for buying a used RV

Last fall we bought a 2003 Class C for $23,000 and generally we are pretty happy with it so far. But I can't believe we failed to see some rippling in the exterior panels in a couple of small areas indicating delamination(outer panel seperating from the underlying wood). This could be really serious though so far it isn't getting any worse so we have our fingers crossed.

RE: gas mileage with a v10

With our 2003 Itasca 30 footer towing a 2700 lb car we get 7 to 11. I know that's a big range but it really depends a lot on wind and terrain. I would say a long term average would be 8 to 9.

RE: Driving the Rockies

We "workamped" at Glacier NP 5 summers and Yellowstone 3 and going back to visit in Aug. Your question isn't too specific about what you need. Glacier is our favorite place in the country. I've towed a 5000-6000 lb 5th wheel all over the Rockies with a half-ton truck and you will encounter some fairly steep grades where you will definitely downshift and go slow. however the steepest grade I have pulled was on a main road blacktop in Colorado. You can't tow a trailer on th main road through Glacier and the road around is not real steep. The main roads in Yellowstone are no problem. Almost none of the great campgrounds within those parks have hook-ups.

RE: Towing 4 Wheels Down

In the case of our 2012 Chevy Sonic, it very specifically addresses this issue "towing behind a motorhome" in the manual so I am very comfortable doing it. If I couldn't find that kind of info then I would never risk it.

RE: What is "Dry weight?"

I'm not sure that "dry weight" has a standard definiton. I guess it's supposed to mean the way the RV comes to the dealer without any fluids or "options". But do any really come without batteries, a propane tank or AC? Not sure but I'm guessing it could be misleading?

RE: Wisconsin to Glacier National Park

It's not northern but US 2 is a good route.

RE: Maiden voyage all gone wrong

I had nightmares about this happening when we bought our 2003 Class C MH last fall. A severe shake in the wheel did develop right away which turned out to be sticking calipers(all replaced now). But otherwise, it's been going well and I hope yours will also after getting some initial problems fixed. One way or another, they are expensive.

RE: Do we make the plunge?

We are about 70 and travel and RV a lot with a 30 ft. Class C motorhome towing a small car. But we have done it continuously for over 30 years in some kind of RV so it's not like we have to start from scratch and learn everything. If you are healthy, don't have a problem driving and take it slow should be OK. However, I would never advise anyone to get an RV to travel cheaper unless you already have one; especially if it's only going to be for several weeks a year. By the time you depreciate the RV and pay for extra fuel it may cost as much or more. But, a pop-up( too much set up and down for me) might be the exception because they cost and depreciate much less than say a $20,000 trailer. It's a great way ta travel.

RE: value of used mh

You can try looking it up in NADA or finding comparable ones on places like Craigslist. But honestly, 1 that old with it's deficiencies isn't going to be worth very much. Kind like an old car. just about any might bring $1000 but not much more.

RE: Whats your favorite camprground in Glacier?

Apgar very near the West Glacier entrance is very large, wooded, walking distance from the free shuttle, is nice and has some fair sized sites. Also not far from towns, etc.

Where to Start for rates and location

We are long time experienced RVers but just thinking a little about going full-time. So, not sure where to start finding campgrounds to look at and their rates for staying several months. We would probably be interested in Florida and/or the southwest US for winter and states such as Wyoming, Montana for summer. I see quite a bit of info on the internet but pining down long term rates seem difficult. I think we would need to look at rates in the $300-$500/Mo. range rather than $1000 range. Does anyone have a good, clear source of information on this matter? Much appreciated. We currently have a house in west central Illinois.

RE: Winter Routes

We aren't big on staying one place but it does help with fuel costs. We usually leave west central Illinois and head straight south to the Gulf Coast. Lots of great places, state parks, etc all along the Gulf coasts of Mississippi and east through Alabama and Florida. We start out near Biloxi and camp our way east along the Gulf to such places as Gulf SP and Ft. Pickens(national park campground) near Pensacola then on south to the Fl. western gulf coast. But don't expect it to feel like summer along the coast until well south in Fl. and many of those campgrounds need reserved well in advance.

RE: Winnebago Minnie or Thor Chateau

No knowledge of Thor but I don't think you will go wrong with Winnebago. We have a 2003 Class C. Just got some faucet parts from the factory; no problem. I like the non-rubber roof. I undeerstand that you can get whatever replacement part you need for older units. It's an old company as RV companies go.
