RE: HR Presidential Suites

I had an alumascape 37 rear living room with 4 slides. Everything worked well with few issues like the contact on the wall becoming unglued in one small spot. It was an easy fix and not like a later trailer I bought from fun finder that never connected the shower drain. I would have kept that trailer if there wasn't a need to downsize to something smaller.

RE: dentist nuevo progreso

My sister had a partial done there and found it to be cheaply made and uncomfortable. My post had to be redone in the states because the stem was too small and snapped off. I also had to do a root canal on that same tooth. muestre's cost was 450, while the do over up north came to another 1500.

dentist nuevo progreso

We tried Dr. Muestre for a few years but had issues with his work. We are now looking for another dentist in Nuevo Progreso. We heard one good recommendation for Dr. Santiago so far. Thanks for your help.

RE: RV Insurance

We have Geico. A few months ago we got hit with a hail storm in El Paso that put holes in the awning and broke all of the room vents. The rubber roof seemed to me to be undamaged, but Geico insisted that it had to be replaced. They paid for all of it. My truck also had extensive damage and now you can't tell that it was ever in a hail storm. The claim was considered an act of God and covered in full.

RE: looking at 5th wheels with rear kitchen

WE have a 30 ft cougar X lite and love it. It only weighs 7000 empty. So far, we towed it from Pa to Cal to Fl with no issues and lived in it for three winters. Check the Keystone website for the Cougar rear kitchen floorplans, they have quite a few.

RE: RV Furniture

If you don't mind buying used at a substantial reduction in cost you might try some of the RV salvage places like National recovery service in Liberty, North Carolina, or google RV salvage for more locations.

RGV to Florida via 90

We would like to make a stop over in Louisiana or Mississippi at a casino where we can park overnight free and have a breakfast buffet in the morning and do a little fun gambling. Our concern is for safety, so we would want a layover in one of the safer casinos.

RE: Winter Driving

I would winterize the trailer and use bottled water on the trip home. you can still use the heat and fridge, but not the drains. Chase the toilet with antifreeze and dump before putting the rig in storage.

1/2 ton towable 5th wheel...Ha!

I have a 1/2 ton towable rth wheel, but pull it with a 2500 ram, Hemi. I would love to downsize to a half-ton truck for the improved ride, lower height and cheaper cost since my present truck has a lot of miles on it. After looking at the gvwr of the half-tons, it appears that there wouldn't be enough left over for a cup and that cup better be made out of paper. Most half-tons only carry around 1800 in the bed. Once you add the weight of a 5th wh hitch, your wife, dog, gas and whatever else you might want to carry in your truck, (wife and you estimate of 250 lbs) you already up to around 500 lbs. Now add the hitch weight of your supposedly 1/2 ton towable, 1350 for my cougar, and you're already over the 1800. Anything you carry in the underneath storage up front adds to hitch weight and so does anything in the wardrobe and under the bed storage. Am I seeing this wrong or maybe I should stick with a 2500.

RE: Possible snowbird next year.

Most folks go straight down from their homes, including Canadians. Northeasterners go to Fl, Northwesterners head to Arizona and California while midwesterners usually head to Texas. That's not to say that some RVer's Don't crisscross to farther destinations. Since you are looking to go home for Christmas, the shortest distance would be Texas; San Antonio, Corpus Christi or anywhere along the Gulf. Campgrounds are far cheaper and half the price of Fl. Good luck.

hail ruined my roof

My 5th wheel got hit with hail in El Paso. I'm getting it redone, thanks to Geico. The RV shop wants to replace it with a PVC skin, claiming that it's better than the original rubber roof. Anyone know if this is true? I'll pay extra if it is.

RE: Port Aransas Texas...where to stay?

Winter Texans fill up the spaces for the winter. However, there are a lot of CG between Rockport and Corpus Cristi that are near the beaches. You may get lucky.

RE: Possible Auto Ins. Claim to Fix Bed After 5'ver Drop !

I forgot to chock my wheels. When I dissingaged the hitch, the trailer rolled backwards. My closed tailgate was the only thing that stopped it. Luckily, there was no damage to the rails, but my tailgate had to be fixed. I didn't make a claim on it.

RE: Salesperson Switcharoo!

Regarding inspections, we didn't take the time to inspect our then new Funfinder TT which we purchased 700 miles from our home. I noticed during a long trip to Texas months later that there was water on the floor next to the shower. Thinking it was over-spill, I dismissed it. Later on, after seeing the same thing following more showers, I opened the plastic door that leads to the drain and found that it wasn't even connected. There was not enough room to connect the upper pipe to the lower pipe due to the sub floor being in the way. I had to cut back the plywood in order to connect the pipes. Another issue was the booth table. It came unglued from the base. The staples were extremely small and didn't hold. I was still in Texas at the time and had to fix it myself. I used Gorilla glue generously and that did the trick. Next trailer I purchase, I plan to stay in a campground nearby for at least a week.

Is nuevo progresso still safe?

We will be staying in Port Isabel, tx this winter and plan to go to Nuevo Progress. We haven't heard or read any updates as to the Cartel problem on the other side and would like to hear from others who have recently gone there.

Do RV tires deteriorate when sitting on dealer lots.

I bought a four year old used 5th wheel and had a blowout on my first run. Suspecting that it might be lot rot in the tires, I changed the whole set even though the treads looked new on them. The entire tread on the blowout tire separated from the sidewall and took out the trailer fender. It's my belief that when an RV is sitting in a lot for a year or more in one spot, all that weight on one small portion of the tires undermines the inner core. Watchatink?
