RE: My new "Toad", more of a "Prince" actually....

Nice going, Steve!

RE: Back from the dealership, Ford/Chevy vs Sprinter

The Sprinters are supposed to handle better. I drove one, but don't recall for sure. Probably true. Their cab comfort is the best of the 3. Their seats often swivel, which makes for a more versatile layout when camped. That said, we went with the Chevy, saved a lot of money, and have the comfort of easy access to service places.

RE: Actual weights of my Sunseeker 2300

That doesn't seem to be the same with mine. When it shuts off, it is FULL.

RE: Class C vs TT: driving and setting up camp..(long)

It's mostly a camping lifestyle decision. If you drive for one day to some place and camp there for a week or two, then go home, the TT is a better choice. I think a MH is more versatile though. We love ours.

RE: B+ motorhomes

We looked at the 26HE when we were wanting to go bigger than the 213. It's a great deal, a lot of bang for the buck.

RE: Actual weights of my Sunseeker 2300

Phil, Yes, I couldn't recall if it is 55 or 57. There must be a heckuva reserve in the gauge readings, because when the light comes on and it reads E, I only get 45-46 gallons into it. I know on our Chevy Duramax pickup, there is a big reserve.

RE: Actual weights of my Sunseeker 2300

I think the 200 lbs of rack and cargo on the hitch are putting a lot of weight onto the rear wheels. I would have loved to get the weights without that stuff. In any event, it handles good and like you say, there is room for another ton. Not that I want to.

Actual weights of my Sunseeker 2300

This is fully loaded for camping. Food, clothes, stuff. 400 lbs of people and dog in the cab. 200 lbs of hitch rack and cargo. 40 gallons of water in various tanks. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-IzUbWoTSsxU/VRqvz7xX7qI/AAAAAAAACCs/1mku24oxF1Y/s800/DSC_0396.JPG width=640

RE: Buying cheap to fix, good idea?

It's not bad etiquette to ask the same question on different forums. Don't worry about that one.

RE: What year would you look for?

The E450 doesn't have room in the engine bay for the 3 valve version.

RE: Re: Chevrolet Letter Of Possible Defected Fuel Pump

I got the same letter for our 2014. Not much we can do except hope it doesn't happen.

RE: Buying cheap to fix, good idea?

Yeah, I would not buy one with any amount of water damage. The one I worked on, the hidden damage was 10X what it looked like before getting into it. And having watched the water damage threads here for years, it's the same every time. As someone said above, any RV with water damage is in reality worth next to nothing. But no seller will give one away. :)

RE: Problems towing a Ford Focus

What carringsb said! The first year of that trans, you have to get a firmware update because Ford made a mistake. I think Ford should cover the transmission rebuilds if they didn't already.

RE: Small economical DD as a towed

I think several posters are overlooking the less than 3000 lbs requirement. Very few cars get a true 35-40 MPG. We have one of them, a 2013 Focus SFE (special fuel economy edition). It's flat towable. But I don't think it will haul bikes inside, and neither would the hatchback non-SFE version IMO. And it might be slightly more than 3000 lbs once you put things in it. I think the Sonic would be worth checking out. And the Spark.

RE: Honda abandons Dinghy market?

The owners manual can almost always be found online these days. So the best bet is to download the one for your prospective dinghy and see what it says for recreational towing or emergency towing. I see the Ford Focus is not in the 2015 guide either. :(

RE: Class C Cabover Rebuild

BTDT. Well, you will enjoy it, and you've learned a lot. That's worth something, and someday you'll laugh about it.

RE: Buying cheap to fix, good idea?

I think to be successful with buying and fixing, you have to figure on looking at a lot of units. What you want is probably out there, though. IMO the buy it and drive it $10,000 MH does not exist anyway. So you're probably better off spending less and figuring on some fixing.

RE: B+ motorhomes

While not for everyone, I would like the TL 213 floorplan but with a queen bed over the cab, so making it a Class C. I thought the 213 was a great floorplan except for the bed(s). I hope whoever bought our 213 is enjoying all the little improvements we made. :)

RE: Bypassing I-40 in eastern Arkansas

Due to a change of plans, we ended up using I-40. They have patched the holes.

Bypassing I-40 in eastern Arkansas

While checking into a CG in Sikeston MO yesterday, everyone asked if I had just come from I-40 & I-55 to get there. I told them no, we were headed that way next. They all turned pale, then told me their war stories. I got onto the forum and found a thread about same. So looking at the map, it seems taking US 60 west to Poplar Bluff, MO, then US 67 down to Little Rock would be a nice way around it. From what I see, much of it is 4 lane. In any event, we are going to do it today, and I'll post a recap. Thoughts?
