RE: Whats a Reasonable Offer??

If a trailer is $50,000...the cost is about 1/2 ($25,000) So when they knock off $5,000....drop in bucket....Cut the price in half, add $5,000 - $10,000 for profit for dealer.

RE: Towing capacity

JUst because a sticker says the weight is 7500 lbs...isn't so. You need to take it someplace and have it weighed (especially with everything you normally take with you) You can easily add 1500-2000 lbs to a dry weight figure. There are grades in the Rockies that can really take a toll on going up as well as going back down. Never be marginal on tow capacity, go bigger so you can take on the mountain grades with ease or easier.

RE: Brand new to rv

I don't know where you heard about a max of 20-22' for rv's. I would say the average length is 32-36'....with a max of 45'. We have a 36' and have had no problems in over 25 years of camping. I would say state parks have the smallest campsites but other than that many sites are 36-50 feet in length (full hookup or water/elec) Motorhomes, toy haulers, fifth wheels & travel trailers almost all average 24'- 40'...relax and enjoy camping.

RE: Anyone replace an AC unit themselves?

I used an extension ladder..one person on the roof pulling up with a rope, I was behind pushing and making sure it was centered on ladder. A little awkward but worked fine...threw the old one off the roof.

RE: Pulling Two Trailers

Call your insurance agent and see if they insure pulling two trailers...most do not...Both trailers must have electric brakes also along with sway control for each trailer...Not worth the liability

RE: Chainsaw ?

Not too many places allow people to cut trees or gather firewood. Many campgrounds do not...State Parks or National Parks don't either. If you travel much, you can't transport firewood from one state to another. If you're just a weekend camper....buy it from various places like walmart, Grocery stores,etc

RE: Four little dogs...

We are in a park, Casa Grande, AZ....two dogs max..they will send you elsewhere if more....Then the KOA in Apache Junction charges $5 per dog per night...also 2 dog max....so there are dog unfriendly places around

RE: Home domicile and insurance for full timing

It's not Florida, it's the insurance companies. Major insurance companies will not insure your RV if you no longer own a home. It's attached to your homeowners policy...State Farm, American Family etc. So now you have to go with a company who deal in RV's only. Florida, Texas and South Dakota are great states to claim as a home state for full timing

RE: 2012 Ecoboost towing

Dry weight is usually before additional equipment is added like air conditioner. Then all the "stuff" we add..clothes, tools, chairs, food, bbq grill which usually pushes the added weight to another 2,000-3,000 lbs. The truck could pull the trailer on flat driving but once you get into mountains and hills, you will be disappointed. To get real weight you need to put all the "stuff" into the trailer and go to a scale and have it weighed...you will be shocked to actual weight....that trailer, I feel, is too much for a 1/2 ton.

RE: Expandable Water Hose

I've seen too many leak as they are thin wall...also, they collect bacteria...not a drinking water hose..would be good for rinsing off rv or back flush hose...they don't hold up for long term use.

RE: annual inspections & registration on extended trips

We became South Dakota residents and enlisted the service of a mail forwarding company. They take care of going down and getting my registration every year..send voting paperwork, send my mail every week and no inspections required on motorhome or vehicles...no state income tax or sales tax...save thousands every year

RE: A book for beginner

Campfire College....with over 30 years of Rving...the best advice I've obtained is having a cup of coffee around a campfire and getting sound advice from seasoned campers. Backing up, leveling, The Pyramid, condensation...and the list goes on...lots of wisdom right in the park you are at.

RE: How Much Does it Cost to Live on the Road?

You will always have the basics follow you wherever you go..Insurance, food, fuel, cell phone, laundry, propane...but where you can save is by workamping. Why pay (on the average) $600 a month to stay in a campground. Monthly rates are cheaper than daily/weekly rates. He can work at the campground while you do your paying job work. There are a variety of positions all over the country....we work in the North for the summer, Arizona in the winter....seasonal snowbirds. Join www.workamper.com and they will send daily job openings for you to choose from
