RE: Waving in the RGV

A little off topic but early last campin season a member here posted that not many people waved back at him while he was driving down the road when an RV came towards him from the opposite direction. That post got me thinking and on one of our trips, we started waving to all RV's coming our way. I tried the big wave, the index finger wave, and even the simple nod of the head. Only got one response. But my wife thinks that he was really adjusting his visor and not waving back. So next time when people say they need something to do while traveling down the road, I say start waving and say hi.

RE: Which State Has the Best Drivers?

I think it isn't about the state, but more of a city thing. People that learn and then drive in big city traffic seem to look at driving a bit different than people that learn and drive in rural areas.

RE: Fair Price Off Of MSRP

I would think you have better leverage when purchasing an RV off their lot. And to me "fair" is only how you want to feel after you purchase.

RE: Driveway camping at my own house

Our 5er, while setting in our driveway throughout the camping season is available for use as an extra living area and bedroom and is looked at as an asset to our house and property.

RE: Looking for small FWs <= 25/26 ft for fulltiming

Our 25' Cruiser Gets us into many remote areas. The height (12.5') is often most limiting to where we can go. We feel it is well built and it is my belief that no RV is built for full timing unless it is taken care of. We have no plans of getting rid of our unit, but we don't full time either. BTW, I get a kick out of the advice to go big.

RE: Rockin' out (I guess)........how much is too much?

We have found that if a neighbor complains, that's it. ...........

RE: We're new and excited!

We have thought of full timing, but it as yet has not felt quite right. Questions that come up. Do you have kids? Do you both work? Do you plan on traveling or staying long term in a trailer park?

RE: Black tank problem

I would fill the rest of the tank with water first. Then I would have a 5-gal bucket ready at the outlet. I would then open the valve and poke some hard wire up there and break up the clog. As soon as the poop flies, I would close the valve and re- hook up the drain hose.

RE: Advice needed. Band ready to hit the road and start touring.

Sounds like you're ready to create some memories - whatever they may be. Just go, hit your gigs, and have fun. Just too many things to discuss. If you really do, or even think about all the advice you will receive here, you won't go. Just go.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

Two acres for a dog park is a lot of area if you're trying to maximize profit. Now with so many jurisdictions requiring buffers, open space easements, and wetland delineations, a dog park is a good way to go.

RE: How to measure how much solar we need?

In conserve mode, we use about 20a per day. That is what I would start with. A number.

RE: Snow load

Besides the weight of water per cubic foot (62lbs), many factors come into play on the weight of snow and depth on a surface. Dry or wet snow? Heated or unheated surface? Freeze thaw(ice dam). No standard for snow weight, that I know of.

RE: Gift Idea help for 5th wheel.

If you have the time, you could scroll through the camping and RV sections of Camping World and Amazon web sites. All sorts of stuff on there.

RE: Big Guy, Small Bathroom

Being 6-3 our bathroom works, but could be better. I just figure that it's only a small part of the journey. And, when viewing a rig to purchase, sit on the throne.

We use ours during the winter. Hard cover, hitch out.

RE: 2wd vs 4wd

Besides the obvious reasons for a 4x4, we use 4 low to pull our 5er up a graveled driveway that is steep at 24% grade. Even in the middle of summer. Not sure if 2wd would do it, but the way the truck creeps up the hill without any tires slipping is a nice comfort.

RE: If you had Eight Years to Plan

My wife and I plan on retiring in 2022. Our retirement plans have changed over the past 4 years, when we first starting planning our retirement. One major decision we have made is to keep a home base. Just not quite sure where that will be. We realize that we will not be able to continue traveling much when we turn around 85, so the home base sounds good. If you do sell everything, save enough to find a new home base later on, so you don't end up living your twilight years in a trailer park.

RE: Traffic challenge

This sort of thing happens all the time......and all over the place. We just shake our heads and move on to the next situation - it doesn't seem to take too long.

RE: Thinking of going FW...........HELP!!

This site has hosted many debates regarding the pros and cons of comparing 5th wheels, TT's and MH's. This one is a first for me. The one glaring difference for me is that the TC can get to more remote areas that a 5er. That about sums it up from here.
