RE: What happened to pickup truck based "C"s?

Robert, what would that very nice rig cost in US dollars With the depreciation of the Aussie Dollar my guess Aus $75,000, U.S. $52,000 They had a 2013 version for Aus $63,000 or US $40,000 that is a bargain. 12 yrs ago, the 2 wheel drive chevy silverado provan tiger was $55,000, and i am guessing it's more like $80,000 today.

RE: What happened to pickup truck based "C"s?

Definitely a market here for a compact 4x4 http://d3lp4xedbqa8a5.cloudfront.net/imagegen/p/800/600/s3/digital-cougar-assets/momoads/2015/06/02/Misc/5587_Sunliner-Ranger-4x4_01-(1).jpg http://d3lp4xedbqa8a5.cloudfront.net/imagegen/p/800/600/s3/digital-cougar-assets/momoads/2015/06/02/Misc/5587_Sunliner-Ranger-4x4_04-(1).jpg Robert, what would that very nice rig cost in US dollars?

RE: Trouble with Windows 10

GOOD ON YOU, TUSCONJIM. mr ed, i was thinking about how shift restart and not F8 restart seemed an incorrect move. glad you got the fix.

RE: so...is MS Defender really as bad as so many say?

"In contrast {to MS}, seven of the 24 other products tested in November received scores of 100 percent: Kaspersky, Symantec/Norton, Bitdefender, Avira Internet Security, F-Secure, Comodo, and Panda Cloud-Free." funny how all the kaspersky copycats scored dead even - but they are all flagging the same benign files, so it stands to reason.

top rated AV has been compromising all AV comparison data for YEARS

RE: some recent mods for B+/C owner interests

that sounds like it will be a shakedown test of all the MH systems. drivers also:)

RE: some recent mods for B+/C owner interests

A carport for your motor home is a very smart & affordable investment. I also like that lattice work for sun protection and neighbor friendliness. originally had lattice all around. the front was 3 7' vertical framed lattice panels supported by a beam. this blocked a lot of sun, but got to be a hassle to remove/replace. by adding extra rear overhang the RV is backed further under and stays pretty well shaded in windshield region. remaining lattice blocks neighbor kids' errant basketballs.

RE: some recent mods for B+/C owner interests

thanks, Phil we never really boondock like you. one or two nites at nearby SPs from september to may is what we've settled into. i love our B+. we spent 6 yrs looking at ALL types of RVs before getting our rig. given the way we now use it, a small TT would make more sense, but the convenience of a self-propelled, no-towed RV is still a hard thing to beat!

RE: some recent mods for B+/C owner interests

unpainted wood and corrugated galvanized roof all from home depot store shelves was $800. paint + concrete for rear 12'x 12' 1-2" thin slab (thicker w/ rebar along rear wheel line), screws and other misc. brings it to about $1000 6 facia-girder boards are 12' long 2x12s. joists are 2x6s @ 2' structure is about 11.5' tall w/ posts made by splicing 2' lengths of 4x4s to 12' 4x4s using 4 6' long 1x4s glued and screwed to all 4 sides and sunk about 30". posts form what is called non-prismatic cantilever beams (vertical diving boards). my calculations say 100 mph hurricane winds will be safe w/, maybe 3 inches of horizontal sway at roof level. use 2 joists across 2 inner posts too little front to rear slope caused some leaky overlaps, leading to recent repairs that include an inner gutter at mid structure and at 3rd to last joist, along w/ new drip strips...put decent slope to avoid this. on edit: no joist hangars...simply 2-3.5" screws thru outer 2x12 into 2x6 joists. i had to stand down my HOA, who called me on the carpet. i drew pictures using cut and paste figures to show the architecture committee almost exactly how it would look and its materials. they had all intent to stop it, yet they would and could not do so...the original developer of the subdivision had allowed 4 RV sheds at the get-go some 20 years back. i HATE HOAs! there are already enough governments trying to get between me and a holsum enjoyment of my property.

some recent mods for B+/C owner interests

had a lot of activity making changes on our RV and its shed this summer. hope it might bring some ideas to other B+/C owners... repainted shed w/ full slab (compared w/ sig pic) http://i.imgur.com/Xeqr4XKl.jpg awning removed and wheel hubs spray painted 'sagebrush'. also showing 2' rear extension to shed http://i.imgur.com/4LMBBhil.jpg also from another post been applying some basic mods often suggested on this b+ thread. http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/DINETTE%20BED_zps6xvcfkqq.jpg~original width=500 http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/DINETTE%20TABLE_zpszabzocm4_1.jpg width=500 http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/u%20dinette%20and%20sofa_zpstlkijwp1.jpg~original width=500 took out 24"x38" dinette table and replaced w/ 24"x20" and 24"x18" plywood. added thin foam layers (about 3) beneath 22"x38" dinette seat cushions and upholstered with easy-to-wipe-clean vinyl fabric. used about 7 layers of foam to create two cushions atop two pieces of plywood. used grommets on cushion backsides to allow air to escape when compressing. also covered sofa bottom in vinyl fabric. routed an extension cord and cable from front right glass-door cabinets to cabinet just above dinette where 19" tv now lays on a foam cushion. i need to be close to see tv, so now we just open cabinet, lift tv down to 24"x18" table top, and turn table to view from any seat in house. tv laying in cabinet http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/tv%20in%20bin_zpsazcnecfh.jpg~original width=500 tv on table http://i166.photobucket.com/albums/u110/burlmart/tv%20on%20table_zpsbpi85s1i.jpg~original width=300

RE: Women Going Solo in an RV?

for those wanting a small B+ w/ loft lift bed new winnebago trend/viva has hideaway bed for solos who share meals at club gatherings. for two solos, separate sleeping areas. also good for solos who occasionally pick up nieces/nephews/grandkids for weekend trips. costs under $70,000 - less than sprinter view/navion

RE: Verizon is doing away with contracts

what if you do not need data or text? i can't follow the step-by-step planning on their site?

RE: Reflections on 6 Months of RV Research! ;)

dean, if you cannot put the used MH in the driveway, then your TT idea is better for now. i have my eyes on the forest river rpods. they are so cool looking that your association might not care! i could be enticed to a liteweight TT if i thought towing behind a 4runner was easy, and backing it into a state park site and setting it up was not too strenuous. take a look. we looked in a few, and they are surprisingly comfortable and inexpensive.

RE: Microsoft’s Windows 10 is a privacy nightmare

Linux fanboys love to say Microsoft is evil and I remember them saying 15 years ago that Linux will kill Windows but today Linux has the same 1% OS market share as it did back then. Why don't you people that think Windows sucks go run Linux ? you've made a logical error. distrust/disdain for M$ on the part of open source linux enthusiasts is not windows vs ubuntu, and you know it. i am waiting for a MS "FANBOY" to step up and give a detailed defense of what MS is trying to get away with by offering free W10 in exchange for unprecedented/unspecified loss of user privacy. so, 8.1 Van, how about bringing the challenge back to you? ball's in your court. detailed defense, please.

RE: Microsoft’s Windows 10 is a privacy nightmare

'hope springs eternal.' i've been all glowing about how MS was gonna redeem itself after reaming them on how they used all sorts of scare tactics and half truths to force us off XP. I see i was in a hopeful fog of naivete. its all M$, and that's that. abusing our trust in a major US corporation and nonchalantly recommending people to do the 'express install,' which unbeknownst to 90% of them allows MS unprecedented access to their privacy is dirty business, and completely nullifies any trust that users have placed in this greedy corporation. i don't know what i was thinking that they were good guysBut are they doing anything illegal? If not, oh well, it's all about choices. You choose! they likely have great lawyers - the kind that can write a contract tat even they, themselves, find hard to understand. and you are right that we are free to walk. i am sensing that there is a privace cost to running this free OS which 1} most non IT savvy people are going to feel unhappy about once they find it out, and 2) will change the tunes of the hi tech writers who are now glossing over the privacy sea-change posed by w10. they may be glowing about their W10 beta experience w/ MS now, but lets see what thty're saying a yr from now

RE: Windows 10

w/ all the privacy issues being discussed, i unreserved my w10 upgrade for now. licensing policies and vague wording of this 'free' OS are troubling

RE: Microsoft’s Windows 10 is a privacy nightmare

If you are worried about your privacy, you lost that the minute you started using a credit card. And those store loyalty cards you use? Yeah, they know a lot about you... the 'new privacy' is real. but my purchasing activity is way less personal than whom and what my emails address, or what data my crashed excel spreadsheet might have given MS's 'trusted partners' as they both 'restore' the app. there is benign and malevolently intrusive - ask all the federal employees whose personal data was stolen about the difference.
