RE: paint

Find a paint shop that specializes in painting MH's as they are the true experts.

RE: Charleston up the coast?

I'm planning to leave James Island County Park, get on US-17 going across the peninsula and up to Huntington Beach SP. Although I definitely don't like much traffic I'll be starting at 10 a.m. and I don't see any other feasible way to do it. Opinions? Thanks. It is not that bad, I have done it with a 33' TT and a 38' MH and dinghy. This is a straight line to Rt. 17.

RE: Armor All Extreme Shield Max vs.Maquiars Ultimate Liquid wax

Nomadac...no concerns over the decals? I don't own anything with decals, but have never heard anyone comment about it. Contact Collinite and ask them.

RE: Armor All Extreme Shield Max vs.Maquiars Ultimate Liquid wax

I would recommend Collinite Waxes http://www.collinite.com/automotive-wax/ I have been using their #845 Insulator Wax on my MH since 2004 and it still looks like the day it was new. I used this wax since the mid 80's on all of my vehicles with excellent success, durability, and ease of application. Most of my friends with classic cars use it and many of my friends that wax their MH's use it.

RE: tow dolly or trailer????

I recommend you do a Search on this subject since it has been discussed excessively. A primary issue for towing a car trailer and vehicle is the total towing capacity of your Class C. I would be surprised if it is more than 5,000 lbs. An open trailer would weigh 1600#+ and an enclosed would be over 2200# to consider, plus the vehicle on the trailer.

RE: tow dolly Brake?

IMO it is best to have brakes either electric or surge. What would stop the dolly and car if it came loose and continued rolling? It would not stop until it hit something. With brakes they have a breakway switch that will operate the brakes on the dolly and bring it to a stop.

RE: Is this what a Tranny cooler looks like?

Look inside the glove box door,to see if there is a list of options for your 2008 Tahoe. If it list Trailer Pkg. then you have a HD transmission cooler as part of that pkg.

RE: Car Trailers.

I have a 1995 BMW 325I series. I was just thinking about a tent in case the camp ground didn't want an exposed trailer. Several people in this camp ground, Point Mallard Park, have tents in the "back yard". They do not get charged any extra for them. Some have two tents. Why not call the campground and ask their policy for car trailers? If they have pull through sites you can leave the trailer attached. Some offer leaving the trailer in a parking area. If you are just passing through call ahead and check what their policy is for that CG. I have never heard of an exposed trailer being a problem.

RE: Waxing our teardrop trailer

I use Collinite's #845 Insulator wax. http://www.collinite.com/automotive-wax/ I wax my 2003 MH twice a year with it since I purchased it back in Dec. 2004 and it still looks like the day I got it. I have been using this wax for the past 34 years on all of my vehicles, 2 Avion TT's, classic cars, etc. and have not found a better, easier wax to use or for protection.

RE: The 2500 is no more?!?

Apparently I've been living under a rock. I'm just coming across the information that the 2500 Suburban has been discontinued. This puts us in a very difficult position We are blessed to have the 2006 with the 8.1L engine and the 4.1/1 gearing, and it only has 75,000 miles. However, it is already 8 years old, and we anticipate another 8-10 years of camping with our family of 5 and our dog. We had every expectation of buying a new 2500 in 3-4 years, and that plan is now shot! Ugh!! You could buy a 2014 Chevrolet Express Passenger Van 3500 LS Extended Wheelbase that has a towing capacity of 10,000 lbs. that would give you the seating capacity and inside storage space.

RE: Italian sausage spaghetti sauce...

We cheat! Prego out of a jar... Instead of hamburger, use sausage, add a touch of garlic and call it "Italian!" We cheat, too. I use hamburger, cut up Italian sausage, onions and Traditional Ragu Spaghetti Sauce. Sometimes I add a little red wine to it. I use Johnsonville Hot Italian sausage, 2-32 oz. Ragu Spaghetti Sauce w/meat sauce or mushrooms, 1-16 oz. tomatoe paste, 1 can of mushrooms stems/pcs., one onion diced and browned when I cook the sausage and various spices. I make a large batch and freeze the rest for when we travel.

RE: The 2500 is no more?!?

I guess that makes my 2001 Chevy C2500 w/8.1L 4:10 ratio, 12K towing capacity and 49K mileage more valuable. It has been used for towing only over the years as we have other vehicles for daily driving. I guess it is a real Classic. Extremely clean and always in a shelter. This will provide me with towing capacity for my lifetime.

RE: Sand Mat For Bottom Of Stairs?

I Use the same system as BurbMan and it works pretty well and I spend a lot of time at my favorite beach location. I stumbled on This Mat that works better than any other mat that I have tried, The video shows how it works so well. We have two of these type mats at the bottom of our steps and they work great. In addition we have two 9x12 patio vinyl mats along the side of the MH that also keeps the sand away from the steps. I also keep a small brush near the steps to brush off excessive sand, etc.

RE: Metal Carport for Camper

I have a VersaTube RV port that is 10'x14'x40' that I store my MH. I purchased it from Menards. When I started it was 35' long for my 32' Avion trailer. After I bought my MH that is 40' I added 5'. Had I known at the time over 10 years ago I would have poured a concrete floor,instead of the gravel I have now. Hindsight is always better than foresight. http://www.versatube.com/building-kits/classic-carport/

RE: Negotiation Process

Rather than how much below MSRP(Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) you should expect to pay for a MH, what percentage of profit above Dealer Invoice do you think a Dealer should make? If you were a dealer and had an investment of over $500K in your business, and overhead what is a fair profit after all expenses? Explain. That's all well and good if you knew invoice. Do you know or have access to these numbers? If not your basis point is MSRP And what business is it yours to know what invoice is to determine what a seller should make as profit? Do know the invoice for everything you buy? If you owned a business would you want all of your customers to know what your costs or profit was for your business?

RE: Negotiation Process

If I have time, I do somewhat the same thing on just about anything that cost more than several hundred dollars. I paid a 1000.00 less on an american-made Kellar brand dining table with 6 chairs. First, found all dealers that sold this exact table that was in a 150 mile radius; (got this from Kellar's home page). Then gave each dealer a call, told them I had cash in hand to pick up this table unit. My only question to them is "what is my drive-out price." THEIR QUESTION TO ME WAS WHAT IS THE LOWEST PRICE YOU GOT SO FAR. I just laughed & told them I would give them that info after they gave me their price. Took about 2 days for DW to get her beloved table; (had about 10 dealers that responded). Not one dealer told me to get lost, after all, they want to move their stock. And you compare buying a table to buying a Motorhome? I doubt that a Furniture store has the investment or overhead that a RV dealer has to contend with, facility, equipment, Service and Parts operation and inventory, etc. More like apples to oranges. Rather than how much below MSRP(Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price) you should expect to pay for a MH, what percentage of profit above Dealer Invoice do you think a Dealer should make? If you were a dealer and had an investment of over $500K in your business, and overhead what is a fair profit after all expenses? Explain your operating a business experience.

RE: Negotiation Process

List/factory invoice prices are very inflated. 25 to 35% off is common. I am curious where those that post so called percentages, get their information. I have never met a Dealer of RV's that will disclose what the Invoice price is or the % from List. The best guesstimate is what the list price was for a particular compared to the selling price the individual paid for the unit out the door. I doubt that someone can buy a very high $ class A and expect a large discount. For ex. try walking into a Mercedes/BMW/Lexus Dealer and offer him 25-30% off list. Good Luck

RE: proflex paint on roof?

The best material I have found to seal seams on the roof of any RV is Eternabond Tape. http://www.bestmaterials.com/Eternabond.aspx I installed it on the roof of my MH about two years ago and have not had any problems since then. I used it around all vents, skylight, etc. Last Fall I used it on the seams on the roof of my enclosed car trailer.It will not crack like Dicor sealant or any other sealer will over the course of time. The key is to clean the area very good and use a small roller to apply. You can find instructions at the site I posted.
