My wife and I was out window shopping duallys when I come across a 2010 f350 crew cab w 8ft box with the 6.4 diesel. The kicker is it only has 9,000 miles on it. But it's two wheel drive. We are planning going full time in the spring with a 5th wheel probably 37 ft 14,000 lb rig. My original thought was a 4x4 but now thinking why not 2x4. We not expecting to be driving in snow ever again (hopefully). Any average of either.
The only people who ever need a 4x4 are ranchers, some farmers, loggers, untily companies, people in Canada, Alaska. All the rest are just waisting there kids fun money for later.
The guy don't the street has one and they can't have that, they need one to.
I have a condo unit all enclosed, just for RV's boats, cars, , 14 x 50 ft. You own them, I paid fifthy thousand for it. There is about 200 units. Very safe, camera all over the place ele. gate wash rack, dump, bathrooms. Very nice set up.
We have taxes, managment. Cost me about eight hundred per year for all that.
I was thinking of pulling our 40' fifth wheel west from Yuma to San Diego on I-8. The grade looks like it climbs fast on the map. Does anyone have any experience on the drive? If so, would you recommend taking this route due to this apparent steep grade?
Did that in the last week, also done it 50's before. Drove it before it was I 8. No problems what so ever. Just watch out for supper doggy, he will smell your goody's and set down it he don't like them at the top of the hill.
To our dilapidated doublewide in Cave Creek, AZLived in Cave Creek twice, 1975 to 1978 and 1985 to 1999,lived on willow springs rd. now to many lawyers wifes and snow birds, and greenies.
I was very well known there, trust me.
Blue screen is a loss of signal from the camera.
You may have a bad camera or a cut wire to the camera.
I just installed this on my RV. Very high quality and Hi def pic.
Reverse CameraLooks good, I'm going to buy one to, mine works as well as Obama care.
Want to boon-dock around Greer, AZ. No structured CG's. Any suggestions for some good spots? Move over to the Apline area, also very high around 8000 ft. three or four lakes, lots of elks, I had 60 in my front yard a couple weeks back.You could also go home from there very easy and see more of Az. and some N.M.
A lot of area to use and a number of camping sites also, we have a summer home up there, in fact I might go up the week end to close it up for the season.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Note on RingPlus (Sprint) 700min/700text/750MB-4G LTE - cost: $0.00 month. Two Apple iPhones on PagePlusCellular (Verizon) - cost: $7.00 month. Nokia Lumia 1020(WIN 8) on H20 Wireless (AT&T) - cost: $4.00 month. Needless to day, I don't use my smartphones that much. Mostly for cameras and apps. Sprint is primary and more than covers my needs. If no connection, then AT&T or Verizon.
When I had an AT&T Sony flip phone 10 years ago, I paid $50. month. How things have changed using MVNO.In 1992 I think it was a cell phone company contacted me about putting a very large tower on some land I owned on the small mountain in Phoenix. We worked out a deal and at the end I told them I want free phones and 30 year free service and calling. They gave me 20 years with a 10 year renew, in 2012 the twenty was up and Verizon have bought out a few company along the way, but wouldn't not renew our agreement. It wasn't worth hiring a lawyer and go down the road, so that is why I'm not real happy about staying with them now that I have to pay. It is a personal thing.
call and ask for a way to lower cost.
I have 2 phones AND a Verizon Tablet with a line .. for portable WiFi... with 8gb. and its under 150 a month.I not so worried about the price, they are are within reason. The coverage is the most important, service. price is last. Thank you for all the help
We have Verizon (my bill is around $150.00 for two phones) now and am thinking of trying another company. We travel a lot around the country both by RV and car and plane.
Who should I not look at, and who should I look at.
There'd be numerous codes, regulations, and standards that would have to be complied with if doing it fully permitted and inspected. Some of them are:
The NEC has specific requirements for RV parks. How much is the power utility co. going to charge for a connection? Electrical alone would eat up a big chunk of the $50K.
There's NFPA 1194 "Standard for Recreational Vehicle Parks and Campgrounds" that covers fire protection and a number of other things.
In Texas there's TCEQ (Texas Commission on Environmental Quality) which covers water supply, wastewater and storm water disposal, garbage disposal and outdoor burning. 15 or more sites can be considered as a public water supply. Texas TCEQ
There's no contingency fund to put towards any unforeseen costs? There could very well be a whole lot of them you never knew of or thought about.
Has there been any analysis of projected income versus operating costs? According to one source of info. I read, it takes 125 sites to break even.
Any savvy investor wouldn't go near it.Doesn't take anywhere near 125 sites to be profitable. Say you had a 40 site park and built it for $800,000. Operates for 8 months out of the year with a 60 percent occupany rate (not bad, but not exceptional either) At $40 a night, that would be revenues of $230,000. Figure operating costs of about 30 percent, you will have net income of about $160,000. That's a 20% return on your investment, not too bad. Even if you paid a manager couple $5,000 a month for those eight months, instead of running it yourself, you would have a return north of 15 percent. Can't get that on your savings account.
The trouble with the OPs situation is $50,000 is a far cry from $800,000 and building a park in the middle of nowhere won't ever generate $40 a night rates or 60 percent occupancies.
Could you break down the math a little more. Give us the break down on operating cost it you could please.
I love to read the profile we put up on the net.
Some remind me of there balance sheet.
I have a 5th, brown one, mine is white, I pull mine with a 1 ton, I have a dog, cat, bird, fish, goat, lion, deer, cow, pig,snake.
We have 22 grand kids, all girls, Hello
I spend more time reading them then anything else.
I've owned my 2012 Ram w/ Cummins since it had 24k miles on it in late 2013. Since then I've done all of the maintenance myself expect the EGR cleaning (dealer did that)
I replace my fuel filter / fuel water separator every 10k miles and drain it about once a month.
Do most of you have your fuel filters changed? I was talking to a group of Diesel truck owners over the weekend at a camp ground and none of the 8 of them ever heard of changing fuel filter, or draining the fuel water separator.Diesel's trouble never stops, all my friends are moving back to gas.
I have been watching class c's on craigslist for a while. Yesterday, I saw a 2006 with 157,000 miles for $7000.00. Curious if it had a bad motor or some other major issue, I sent a message through Craigslist wanting information about it. It is located in Chicago, about 2 hours form me. I have had no response to the email. Today I see a different picture of the same class c in Tampa Florida. Tonight I see the Same class c on Ebay in California for $22,000.00 with no reserve and no bids. Did the Craigslist ad some how scam me. Are they after my email address or are they baiting me for more personal information?
Hide or run which works the best for you.
