RE: Outside TV quick release bracket

Perhaps something like this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/TV-Wall-Mount-27-Arm-Extend-Camping-Inch-LCD-LED-Motion-Removable-RV-Swivel-Tilt-/222129712810?hash=item33b7f66eaa:g:DIUAAOSw--1WqABW I have one of those. It works fine for that purpose.

RE: Thoughts on a 2010 Freedom Elite 21 ft

Now I think it sounds like a very bad deal. Camping World last year was selling a new small Class C for $49,999. We bought our Sunseeker 2300 for that price new as well, but it was two years ago.

RE: US Pickup Trucks trying to copy VW?

Can we agree that there has to be a LOT of room for aerodynamic improvement in pickup trucks?

RE: A work around for low voltage.

How often do you need hot water? Considering the ambient temperature, I would think 10 minutes of propane burn prior to taking a shower would be plenty good for the day. That's how we do it, anyway. Does not use much propane.

RE: Class "C" with a rubber roof, fixes?

I don't think there are any fewer seams on my fiberglass roof than there were on my TPO roof. In fact the TPO roof wrapped over the sidewalls. I am very impressed with TPO. Regardless, the problem isn't the roofing, it's all the seams and things poking through the roof. At some point you have to stop worrying and start living.

RE: Airstream Fiberglass TT

There is something I have noticed while on the road for the last year. The Airstream seems to be THE trailer of choice for the Dual-income-no-kids younger buyers. Most of them I meet have very good jobs and are in their late twenties or early thirties and want something stylish, cool and classic. Price is not their first concern. And think about this: There is an aura about Airstream. It just seems more environmentally friendly in some way, It's the Anti-Class A/Fifth wheel behomoth. This I think also appeals to them. I have noticed that too. I don't know if it is the trailer of choice for DINKs. But when you see a new AS, it seems to be owned by DINKs. Hey, people buy all sorts of things for style and taste over utility.

RE: Any cautions on buying an RV with a lien on it, please ?

We bought one that way. But the bank was a major bank, and all of the paperwork was at some place across the country. We basically had to go on faith. I mean, we had the vehicle, and we had the seller sign a written sales agreement. But the bank doesn't sign anything useful, so we were at their mercy. Furthermore, they don't send the released title to the buyer, they send it to the seller. So we had to depend not only on the bank but the seller to get the title to us.

RE: I-40/I-30 Memphis to Texarkana

We drove it two months ago. Actually it is quite good now. There is some new pavement. There was some minor roughness in the first ten miles or so out of Memphis but it was pretty well patched. As mild as the winter has been, it should not have deteriorated much in the two months since then.

RE: Campground (NOT 'Resort') near Scottsdale AZ please

McDowell Mtn or Cave Creek. I like the latter a little better but they are both great. So you have to go to the dump station. :)

RE: Cruise America truck camper ...

So they rent it out as a combo. Interesting.

RE: Need Connector For Outside Shower Hose

Have you tried http://www.durafaucet.com/ ? I see the shower control with your part on page 4 of their catalog.

RE: Best shocks for Class C RV?

I replaced my Chevy shocks with the Konis when the Chevy shocks were two years old with 10,000 miles on them. They were not worn out at all. I did not want to spend $600+ on the Konis, but the reviews swayed me. I'm glad I spent the money. I installed them myself, which is not too bad on a Chevy. I hear the Fords are a little harder to do.

RE: Best shocks for Class C RV?

I put Bilsteins on my Ford E350 and they're many times better than OEM but still leaves me with the feeling that I need more shock. There's still too much rocking and bouncing. I'm going to try the Konis the next time. I've used them before in my cars and they worked great! Replacing just the shocks is not going to help that. The Koni FSBs really did help the rocking and bouncing on our rig. I suspect the valving damps down hard on the big moves. I'm thinking mostly of the rocking and rolling we got when turning out of parking lots while going through a slight dip.

RE: Best shocks for Class C RV?

Koni FSD shocks. Just superb. But not cheap.

RE: Who else feels the pull to head north.

We've had enough sun and perfect weather, and are heading home to Illinois next week. The weather is turning, spring is coming, and we have stuff to do at home. If you are from the midwest and east, it looks good starting next week. See this ten day US map
