RE: Mobile suites weight and mobility question

Our "yellow tag" is on the entry door frame (as are all Heartlands). We came out of the factory at 13,864 lbs. This includes all options as it is weighed going out the door of the factory. We have dual panes, generator, two airs, etc. We are fulltimers and after moving from one rig to the other, we went directly to the scales and our gross weight was just under 17,600 lbs...that is almost 3,800 lbs, which included NO fluids. adding 1,000 for cargo is WAY under reality IMHO! I'm not trying to say that people don't carry a lot of weight in their trailers, that's completely up to them. I have 38 years of camping 2 pop-ups, three travel trailers, ones park model and two fifth wheels and I know how you can carry a lot of stuff. But lets put things in reality, A 2015 Chevy Malibu LT weights 3439lb's with a driver and a full tank of gas. But at 3800 lb.'s, good for you, you can't want for anything. Just to let you know my next trailer is going to be a DRV, and I'm going full timing, after I fill it up, well I'll see and report back LOL. We've been at this over 30 years also...I will bet my last dollar when you go fulltime your cargo weight will be a lot closer to my 3,800 lbs than to your estimated 1,000. As for "not wanting for anything"...you are correct...that's the whole point of fulltiming. It's our home and everything we need is with us...there is very little, if anything, we carry that is unnecessary.

RE: A T& T and Verizon

Thought about moving from Verizon to Straight Talk, but after 3gigs of data a month you getted throttled back....won't work for my usage. Recently took advantage of Verizon's double data offer which ends 10/31/2014....we now have two smart phones and a jetpack with 40 gigs of data per month with no throttling for $250. Yes, it's expensive....but you get what you pay for.

RE: Wrong RV furniture

Never had any problem removing recliners right out the front door and have done it several times on different rigs....if it's new I would make certain I got the recliners that are supposed to be in it!

RE: 2013 Redwood

I had my Landmark picked up at the factory and taken directly to Mor Ryde for IS prior to delivery to the dealer...couldn't care less about Lippert's one year warranty. I was more than confident that the only issues I would have faced in that first year would have with the running gear. My gamble paid off...not one issue with the Mor Ryde and no spring, axles, hanger or tire issues since I don't have any....moved my 17.5 tires and rims over from the Bighorn. Two year warranty runs the day after Christmas and never been back to the dealer! Best decision we ever made....

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
