RE: Strict schedule or flexible travel out west

I think it has to be whatever you are comfortable with. I plan out our trips semi- rigidly. I like to plan where we will spend each night, planning to arrive well before a 6 PM diner and never after dark(can be a disaster). But I don't always make reservations. That depends on where, time of year, type of campground, etc. Also, a back-up plan is very advisable. I hate the stress of not being sure by mid-afternoon if we will even encounter a campground that night. Doesn't work for me. But experience is needed to know what works best.

The other upside is that you sold your house quickly at a good price. that can take years.

RE: Extended Warranty

Easy decision for me. No extended warrarties on any product ever. I feel that, in the long run, I will come our money ahead by keeping that money and being ready to use it for needed repairs. I'm 72 and no regrets. Yes, we've paid out some big repair bills, but spaced out over 40 yrs. of Rving. If I can't afford the repair, I can't afford the product.

RE: Leaving seat while driving

I think being unbelted in a MH would be even more dangerous than in a car. I would only do it if I thought I could never ever possibly be in an accident.

RE: All these questions on routing???

Probably; however with a large RV it's a little different as one has to consider curves, steepness, width of road, etc best known by actual fellow RV experience.

RE: Motor homes

I think Winnebago (or Itasca)is as good as any. We have a 2003 30 ft. Itasca class C and it seems to have quality but the condition and history are still very important. I'm told you can get any replacement part from the factory for Winnebago. We ordered replacement faucets and had no problem and reasonable price.

RE: Who's Looking Out for Our Interests?

The comments to use our wallets, etc, aren't helpful. How in the heck does the buyer really evaluate the quality of an RV. I've tried and I can't beyond using brand name, price, etc.

RE: Rant on buying an RV - long

Yep, sorry, too long. No offense to you but when I see one this long I suspect the poster is getting a little carried away or failing to make his point so I don't read it.

RE: Any tips for backing into my camping site solo?

Consider investing in a back-up camera but still be slow and cautious. try to get pull-throughs.

RE: Who's Looking Out for Our Interests?

I agree and would like to see Consumer Reports pick it up and do an RV CR publication?? Car mags are great but are biased towards performance cars and are not objective but CR is much better.

RE: Florida to Yellowstone early April

Early April is always going to have some small risk for snow/ice anywhere north of the deep south especially getting into higher elevations. It sounds like you don't have a choice of starting date so just watch the weather reports, be prepared to stop and delay and stay south as much as possible.

RE: Budget Question

Regardless of what that 1 year might cost I would be looking at the "big picture" and long term. The depreciation of the truck and 5th wheel will be enormous over the next 5 to 7 years and will over shadow the other costs of site rental, fuel etc. In other words if you buy these 2 items for a total of, let's say, $120,000; what will they be worth in 7 years? Maybe $40,000? That would be a cost of $80,000 plus all of the other expenses and would make the $3500 look like small change.

RE: Would you buy an as is Newmar?

It looks like it would be basically new except for the lightening. So what damage exactly did the strike do; very important to know. What was the original list price? I would want it thoroughly evaluated by a trusted RV mechanic to see what it needs.

Gas prices

When gas went to $4 or close there was much weeping and wailing from RVers, selling of motorhomes, etc. Now that it's around $2 I'm surprised to not be hearing much about what a break it is for we RVers with 10 MPG motorhomes. Of course we know it won't be low forever but perhaps it will stay under $3.50 for awhile. I've always said it's like the stock market. No one really know what the price will be next week or next decade. But if it does go high I think I'm not going to panic and sell.

RE: Have you ever cancelled a trip and forfeited your deposits?

So far we have not but that day may come. Most of the state parks, etc. where we stay specify their policy and give refunds minus a fee or 1 day cost.

RE: Rv antifreeze

I don't recall ever seeing that with mine here in Il. where it gets way below freezing. Are you sure there wasn't any water in the system to dilute it.

RE: How to negotiate

Haven't you purchased a car and negotiated the price? I don't think an RV is much different. No one pays the full sticker price. The hard part is knowing what to offer, how low to go but you can't really make an offer that is too low because you can always negotiate up but not down. You might start by offering 75% of the list price or even less. It also depend on how popular that RV is, how many they have, time of year, etc. Also, go to NADA values for RV's and look up the value of one like it a 2013 or 14 model for comparison. I wouldn't want to pay thousands more for a new one?

RE: new to rv life.

Oh, I was thinking trailer but maybe it's a motorhome?

RE: new to rv life.

You didn't mention the size or make but frankly that sounds high to me for one of that age. Of course that's just the asking price and no seller expects to get that. So you might get it for $3500? A year ago we sold a 2000, 25 ft. Jayco 5th wheel for $3800 and I was glad to get that even though book value was higher.

RE: Freezing Weather

No problem until it gets into the upper 20's for several hours.
