RE: Women purchasing RV's

In 31 years of marriage I have bought every single vehicle we've owned. I do the research. I become very knowledgeable about what we are buying, and I make the deal....DH has on several occasions just showed up to sign the final paperwork. Works for us. I have walked out on several dealers over the years when treated like I was an airhead and taken my business elsewhere...their loss as we've bought quite a few!

RE: Palo Duro Canyon

We are not far from you...working in Hereford, Tx on a wind farm construction site. The Canyon is one of the first places we visited after arriving here in June.

RE: Washing/drying in RV

You couldn't pry my Whirlpool stackables away from me....I wash once a week 3 to 4 loads...do laundry while puttering around the house doing other things so it is not an inconvenience. Plus, mine are very quiet...only hear it when washer goes into spin cycle.

RE: paying for a new RV before delivery

There is NO way I would pay in full until the PDI is complete to YOUR satisfaction...

RE: Medical and veterinary needs while full timing.

We use Walmart for prescriptions. We have an EPO plan so we don't need a primary care referral...use urgent care facilities in network. For more in depth care our plan allows us to locate a facility/doctor/specialist as long as they are in the BCBS network. This worked out well this past April while we were near Nashville. Husband went for routine check up and five days later he was having a quadruple coronary bypass done at St. Thomas Heart Hospital in Nashville. We keep a complete set of vet records for each dog and as we arrive in an area a veterinary clinic is the first place I locate just in case of an emergency....then we know where it is and don't panic.

RE: What is consider Full Timing to those that full time?

I am a full timer. I have no other home or place to live. X2 X3...regardless of whether you sit for long periods or move constantly...

RE: 2014 Heartland BigHorn 3875FB w/ Yeti package...Value?

Have had them 8 years...if -6 below isn't cold enough to cause condensation don't know what to tell you....mine have NEVER had any condensation.

RE: 2014 Heartland BigHorn 3875FB w/ Yeti package...Value?

You did not say if it has dual pane windows....if it does you will not have condensation. Staying in OH I would skirt it, add some auxiliary heat inside...we used fireplace and an electric oil filled radiator. We also put batten insulation in the UDC to protect the water connection as heat from the belly does not reach. We had no issues and our furnace cycled normally it did not run constantly...and we did not skirt ours. We did use a heated hose and insulated the park's water bib.

RE: 2014 Heartland BigHorn 3875FB w/ Yeti package...Value?

The Yeti package adds additional insulation in the caps and slides, tank heaters and heated main water line. We fulltimed in a Bighorn for six years did great but stayed south mainly. We now have a Landmark and have experienced extreme temps this past winter...got down to -6 degrees and stayed close to zero for quite a while...had no problem at all...

RE: New Rig

Not judging your choice in trucks, but I can tell you when we full timed in our Bighorn our pin weight was 4,100 pounds loaded....they tend to be very pin heavy.

RE: How do you carry Blue Tote?

DH made this to carry it under the rig...wasn't gonna look at that hanging off the rear ladder! http://i236.photobucket.com/albums/ff162/kakampers/100_0001.jpg

RE: New Rig

Congrats! We fulltimed in our 2008 Bighorn for six years...LOVED it! Only reason we traded was for a more convenient floor plan...got really tired of my "one butt" kitchen. Welcome to the Heartland family!!

RE: Unable to get sanibel fixed under warranty?

We full time and have never had a problem getting warranty work done. If the closest dealer cannot/would not take us in Heartland would authorize any certified repair center to handle the repairs. Have never taken a unit back to selling dealer.

RE: 5th wheel on the freeway with the slide out!

Must be another Schwintec slide problem. lol We have friends with a DRV and a Schwintec bedroom slide...tbey had to tow it 40 miles with the slide out to get to someone who could pull the motor and push the slide in. They then took it to DRV for permanent repair.

RE: Feedback on Heartland Big Country 3450TS

Only Landmark carries the 2&5 warranty...however all 3, Big country, Bighorn and Landmark are warranted for full time use...

RE: Centerpoint suspension question

RE: Feedback on Heartland Big Country 3450TS

Haven't owned a Big Country, but have owned a Bighorn and now a Landmark....they are all built on the same line and all three a full time rated and warranted. Have been happy Heartland owners for almost 8 years...
