RE: Leasing?

We leased our fleet of trucks for over 30 years,unlimited mileage,negotiated price.we used 100% of lease as business expenses versus a percentage of outright purchase price.The capital saved was used to create and initiate larger projects.it also let us pay supplier accounts in full every month on the 20 th. with an negotiated additional discount for early payment of another 3%.All maintenance costs were included in the lease.We knew what our profit margin was every month and it was hugely to our advantage to lease.we ran the numbers leasing versus purchasing numerous times and it never changed.It usually doesn't work very well for individuals,but we sublet out personal vehicles from our company at a discounted price so in that case it did.

RE: A manufacturer who cares!

And you can only hope and pray that because of the backlog that they don't hurry production and have even more things wrong than usual.My worry exactly,they will do most anything from here on in to catch up with sales,long hours,tired bodies and minds equal less then normal quality which in the RV industry is sketchy at best.The dealers are going to be stressed also.A very good PDI will be more important then ever.I am not liking what is coming up.

RE: Another inconsiderate RVer rant

OMG, everyone knows you only do that at night when no one can see you! Golfers don't...:B And don't think that only applies to the male gender.I was a golf marshal and players assistant for 8 years after I retired so spent many hours on the course and believe me I SAW it all.Used to laugh, the guys faced the trees the gals crouched with their back to it.

You sure he wasn't wrestling one of those big pythons I keep seeing on T.V?I guess you watched long enough to identify and make sure of his site.Good for you.

RE: Disappointed in my new Lance

Wow that is amazing 3 TC since 1988 and NEVER needed any repairs.I have never ever had any RV that didn't need a repair,but then my wife always says I fix every thing until I break it.

RE: Northern Canada in March?

And for sure all the ice roads will be open across most lakes and rivers.Check the average temps. for Yellowknife,will have to dig in the snow for firewood so bring a good shovel.And don't forget to factor in the March winds for wind chill.Make sure you have your tank dumping figured out as there will not be any parks with dumps and water refills.A tank of propane every 2 days for sure with gen.Take extras along for sure.Maybe a small cargo trailer to haul all the extra propane,shovels,chains etc.A lot of realistic near arctic weather and road planning should make it work.Have fun.

RE: Elkhart RV plant closing

Sorry double post.Flatulent brain in full operation this morning.

RE: Elkhart RV plant closing

R-Vision and quality do not go in the same sentence,I speak from experience.Of the many RV's I have owned over the years they were the bottom of the list.Not just mine,I spent enough time at the dealers back shop to view and hear what went on.Sadly the jobs that were lost,again not the employees fault.All management.

RE: Leaking FIBERGLASS Black tank

Like I suggested find the leak first,if it is in fact not plumbing and the lower or bottom part of the tank,cut out the side that you can get at,go in fix the leak.Fiberglass the hole shut using the cut out piece as filler,then eterna bond over the patch.As others have said fiber glass repair is not expensive or hard.I am betting on a plumbing leak.

RE: Leaking FIBERGLASS Black tank

Get or rent a fiber optic camera and start checking inside and under before you plan any repair.

RE: Newbie driving across Canada needs advice

Hotels have pools,usually continental breakfast,no extra over size ferry fees,park anywhere,take a good look at your road,there are numerous places tha have hotels,not a baron no mans land.Get a membership to a hotel chain and save another 10%,you can probably do it for less the $75.00 a night.You can buy a tent and some basic camping gear for the odd night if that floats your boat,$500.00 will more then cover that,no room put a pod on the Mazda,loose a little gas though.You can't tow you car 4 wheels down so if you decide to buy a Rv and tow it look for at least another expense of around $2000.00 to buy and pull a dolly or conversion hitch,brakes etc.Think of it this way.Nightly camping fees may average $35.00,hotels are probably another $45/50 a night.That difference won't even pay for your fuel costs alone per day getting 8mpg.in a class C versus at least 35 mpg in the car.Have fun on your trip.

RE: Newbie driving across Canada needs advice

Sell everything except your almost paid off car.Hotel all the way,you don't need reservations all the time.You can rent an apt. for $1500.00 for a month when you get there.It will cost you well over $10,000.00 expeneses plus $20,000.00 to buy an old Class c that will probably cost another $2000.00 just to get ready for the trip.What will you get for it when you sell it???A huge gamble.Spend $3000.00 on hotel rooms and &2000.00 on gas and misc.plus your &1500.00 month rent and you are done,no hassle.$6500.00 total instead of at least $30,000.00 with no idea how much you will possibly lose on the motor home,also no licence and insurance to pay for it.Replace bike when you get there if you still want one with savings,unless it is a gold wing.Easy stress less driving through mountains,parking,no sewer hoses etc. you get the picture.Not saying not get an Rv but this trip may not be the right time.

RE: Bringing rocks to Canada?

:E As a Citizen of the United States, I hereby vehemently object to your attempt to Make Canada Bigger (and the United States smaller!) by way of stealthily importing parts of my Country into yours. Unless you send an equivalent mass/weight of Canadian Rocks down here immediately upon your Illegal Importation of United-Statesian-Rocks, you'll leave us no choice but to Declare War. Don't make us come over there...again...:M....;)...:B Ok we'll give you Justen Beiber and maybe even throw in Ron Ford.Will that do it.

RE: Case illustrates Canada's zero-tolerance gun policy

None the less I hope he is able to straighten this up and be a Canadian visitor,don't know if that can even happen.Doesn't sound like a bad dude.Won't comment on his actions.
