RE: Anyone have problems parking their class B in their Driveway

I don't see this as a town or city thing, I see it as not putting things in front of my house that would look bad to my neighbor, I have to much repect for them to park a John Deer and planter in my front drive way unless I live in the country and was a farmer. If it was a boat it is just a bad. It also tells me they can't aford a place to keep it at or aford it at all.

RE: Anyone have problems parking their class B in their Driveway

Has anyone encountered problems with city ordinances when parking their Sprinter-based RV's in their driveways for extended periods of time? I know some Homes Associations will prohibit RV's from long term driveway parking, but never heard of any city ordinances that would prohibit it. My understanding is that Sprinter-based RV's are generally considered "passenger vans" and are treated as "standard Passenger vehicles" and treated no differently than any other car, SUV, or other van. Has anyone else had any experience dealing with their local jurisdictions regarding issues with parking of a Sprinter (or any other Class B) in their driveways?I see a few in our area try it but get run off as they should. If you can see it it shouldn't be there. Only the cheap try to put a Class A-B-B+-C-SuperC- what ever. Rent a space or hide it some where, A day or three to vist is something different. I don't like to see it it I'm not driving it.

RE: Val Vista Village Mesa AZ

We are thinking of spending next winter in AZ and was wondering if anyone had any feedback on Val Vista Village or similar RV resorts. I have looked at rvparkreviews.com but would like some first hand feedback. Thanks.My folks were number 13 to move in when it was new. They loved it. Both are gone but enjoyed every min. they live there. I would say it was late 60's or early 70's when they moved in. I have not been there in 22 years now. How about that story.

RE: Charity Donation?

Hi Camping World staff, I work for a nonprofit and we are planning our annual fundraiser which takes place in June. I am securing items for our silent auction and wanted to ask if Camping World ever donates items or gift cards for these type of events and causes. We are a 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax deductible. I can provide more information about our organization, the event, and a copy of our tax exempt letter, if need be. Full disclosure: I will be bidding on any donation that comes from Camping World. ;) Thanks for considering it and please let me know if there is someone specific I should speak to.How much do the top three people get paid a year in this 501C?

RE: Mesa to payson then to santa Fe

Hi, Going via I17 and Flagstaff is just farther with the same or similar grades. Be sure to check the weather. They get something called "Feet of snow" in the higher elevations, both Payson and certainly Flagstaff get a lot of snow each winter..No, Flagstaff gets lots of snow in winter.

RE: 2007 HR Augusta vs 2005 Gulfstrm BT Cruiser

SteveL1948 - Several years ago, a few of the owners of the Gulfstream BT Cruisers complained about a squeaking noise between the cab and the cab-over entertainment center. So that one should be taken for a ride over a rougher road. Not sure about the Holiday Rambler Augusta B+ model 293. Another company - RVision built the Trail-Lite that had a model 293. Sometime around 2006-07 RVision was sold to Monaco who then had one of their subsidiaries HR build the Trail-Lite floor plans. I looked at an HR Sport and the construction appeared to be a twin of our Trail-Lite. There are a number of owners of the Trail-Lite that have posted on the B+ motorhomes topic. Most have been very satisfied. ;) I believe many of the posters in RV.net would state that the Chevy chassis handles better than the Ford and fuel economy is as good if not slightly better. I have a Ford e-450 HR B+ put on 6 thousand mile last summer, enjoyed every thing about it.Just can't find something to be upset about. Drives nice, ride is great, tight, every thing worked every time. We take it lots of state parks, alway find a place, It drives better than my Lexus on the road.I don't care about mileage any way, just pay the bill when I get home, don't even look, don't care. The wife is as happy, we had a 5h wheel and would never go back.

RE: adding a trike to the mix

We have a 29ft B+ we have enjoyed for short trips. In a yearr or so we are planning to go coast to coast. Problem as I see it is our Rvision is powered by a Chevy 8. We are concerned about towing anything substantial up &down mountains. Plus, DH has no desire to tow a car. For now we are thinking about renting cars when we stop for a few days in one area. I recently got the idea of buying a 3 wheeler. Living here on the coast we see every vehicle type known to man or woman. One thing I've seen quite a few of recently are trikes and the can/am with 2 wheels in front. I think a trike would be the perfect answer for us. What are your experiences with the 3 wheelers? PS: We are not motorcycle people.I have a Ford 29 ft. b+ HR . Look like yours, I did not want to pull a car also, so I had a rack put on back to hold a scooter. I am a motorcycle person years back that is, but I don't think you should do a scooter type without some training on how to ride them first. You RV will carry a rack and scooter total lbs of 500 lbs no problem. Done it a lot. Get some training be safe. Your RV will do all the moutains in this country no problem, it slows down but will do them fine.

RE: slow moving vehicle sticker

Hi, I'm not into life in the "fast lane". I'm wondering if anyone has information about a "slow moving vehicle" sticker that could be placed on my RV. Does anyone use one or have one?Just put baby on board.

RE: 3/4 v 1 ton 4x4 Keystone Montana

We pull our 15,500 GVW Montana with a 3500 DRW. I know some pull with a 2500, but that's not for me. You will be a lot happier with a heavier truck.Remember you can never get to small a pickup.

RE: Need best book recommendations for a first time Class C user

Any recommendations for a comprehensive "How-to-book" for a first time Class C owner?Take you RV for a 3 day trip close to home. Then come back and fix all the little things that don't work, than take off for the season.

RE: Class C suggestions

Lots of good reading here for you. We have traveled for years and live out west. Here there are lots of smaller camp sites. So smaller and no slides will get you in most places. In our years of travel we ate out a lot, at one point every meal for 2 1/2 years. We like the food we cook better so a kitchen large enough to do the job is a must. After setting at a dinette for a while you will find they really are not nice to set at. But with a lot of extra foam they do make nice beds. A comfortable couch was a must for us. We also use the drivers seat and passengers as recliners for reading and naping. We do pull into lots of motorhome sites (Pull in forward not back in.)that have the view out the front unlike the trailer sites. Be sure when looking at a rig you like, to set in the drivers and passengers seat with the slides in for some time if you choose slides. You need to be sure you can adjust the seat and recline them some for naps. We have seen them where you have to put the seat all the way forward and lean forward. One I could not even get between the steering wheel and seat. I am not fat. The over head bunk makes a nice place for younger guest but really is not nice for every night. They do make a nice storage area. Do not forget you are camping so every thing does not really need to be like home. We do not tow as our small rig gets us near most every place we want to go and then we walk some. Walking does us good. We do not make reservations so if we find a place we like we just stay on and do not have to be some place else. When we get in our rig we drive to the freeway and decide left or right. So no plans. We have been turned away once in the last 10 years. Hope you find what suits you. Remember its a tool to do a job with. Just because some one elst loves it does not mean it right for you to use. Good Luck.You have seen a lot, looks like my pictures with someone else in them. Enjoy.

RE: Scooters on rear of RV

What size do most people carry and what are they. Post a picture if you have any. How far do you ride it when you stop in a area? I'm still planning on a 49cc Honda Ruckus, that I can lift inside the Class C. Now, if I can just figure out how to anchor and secure it in the aisle of the galley. I just can't risk it being stolen off the back of the C, and all that dust and road grit and grime that bikes take on a rack in the elements. Until then, I take a cross breed bicycle that I lift up into the galley, and secure to the dishwashing towel rack, with lanyards and sponges between the frame and the wooden counter.:DYou may fall off and hurt yourself with one as large as 49cc.

RE: Dateland, AZ to Oceanside, CA

This summer I will be traveling to California. One leg of the trip is from Dateland, AZ to Oceanside, CA. I will be pulling a travel trailer and am looking for the easiest (easiest grades, lowest passes in elevation) way into California. I'm looking at I-8, I-10, or I-40. Time is not critical, just looking for an unchallenging route. Thanks!I -8 I-8 and I-8

RE: Tell me about your vacuum!!!

What vacuum model do you have in your RV? I want to hear them all - central vacs, "regular" vacs, stick vacs, handheld vacs! Do you love it/hate it? Does it pick up dog hair? Does it work well on carpet? Does it work well on hard floors? I would take it to Nocona, Tx. and have it fixed right.

RE: Diesel Question for truck campers

I believe a diesel engine is the best for hauling a truck camper. With the price of diesel going up more each week is it still worth it? Just looking for opinions. Today in Canada a gallon of diesel is worth about 75 cents more than gas! With the extra cost of the diesel engine and extra cost at the pump, I am starting to rethink my decision to order my new truck with a diesel! I cannot see me not ordering a diesel, but I just got back from vacation and drove pass the gas station and saw the new diesel price of $1.39 per litre cost, was a bit of a shock. Gas was $1.20 per litre. I believe their are 3.7 litres in a gallon. Thanks PaulWhy do everyone care so much about the price of fuel, the cost of the pickup , Ins, tags, many other things makes fuel not worth talking about anymore. Just spend what one can and enjoy them self. Just make more money.
