RE: 2004 Arctic Fox 1140 ?

The truck sales guy that was selling me the F350 (DRW) related a customer that popped a hub off his SRW with his new Fox camper. Those suckers are heavy dry weight is ~3500 lb. Truck weighs ~8000 lbs, plus you, plus water, plus.... I'd guess total around 12500 to 13000 lbs. Honestly I question putting either 11-ft on an "older" 1-ton

RE: Interesting Montana Concept - Huge Window on Front Cap

Cool, now 5th wheels have windshields to replace from stone damage. :) Years back they had rock shields for them (yes there is little actually new in the world)

RE: Interesting Montana Concept - Huge Window on Front Cap

Being an RV we probably wouldn't have to worry about something like that LEAKING would we. :) Years back, the last time these where tried, their tendency to leak was part of why they became unpopular.

RE: How accurate is NADA for class c pricing?

NADA price is based on what the Dealers are reporting the sales price. They adjust for things like some areas reporting higher sale prices then others. Private sales prices, trade-in prices, etc are all lower. Lots of folk try to use NADA to justify higher prices, by adding in "options", that are already included in the base price of the rig

RE: Atwood vs. Suburban Propane Hot Heaters -Pilot Light Models

I had both, not certain there was enough of a difference to worry about.

RE: Where to buy..

Ya made in china but better quality control. They use them on a lot of big rigs for hwy tire. Good Point Companies can get high quality from any country of origin, if they are willing to put the effort, time and money out, rather then just looking for the cheapest source. Back some years ago when Taiwan was a phrase for "cheap imported tools" Fine Woodworking did an in-depth article on sourcing wood working machines from Taiwan. What they showed, was that you could get machines every bit as good from there as domestic sources, it just cost nearly as much.

RE: May purchase Roadtrek with odometer in kilometers

The readout is digital? Not mechanical? If so it should be reprogrammable. If I'm remembering right that year the chassis were Dodge based, if so the reprogramming would be done by a Dodge dealer.

RE: Arctic Fox

... I'm not impressed with the Northwood/AF site due to the limited number of users and the fee to access much of the forum. There is a ton more information here and much of the information relates to most all of us. I was a member when it was a Yahoo Group and moved over to the web-site when that got setup. I also quit when they started wanting $$. I know of half a dozen people that quit at the same time. None of us could see paying money to share our knowledge.

RE: Arctic Fox

Yes, www.afnash.com But its being revamped right now so you wont be able to go on till the sites back up again. If you own an AF I would suggest joining the group. There is a small yearly fee but I feel its worth it. Actually Google, Firefox, Apple, etc have all blocked it as a malware site. I have known Adam (site owner) for nearly 15 years, I also know web-stuff (real actual pro for 20+ years) and wonder between the yearly fee and selling ads how much Adam is making, note I didn't say how much it costs. Adam used to just run ads and take in donations. Personally I think it's time for an enterprising Northwoods RV or Outdoors RV owner to start a Facebook group for these two (related) lines of RVs. Facebook groups are really where all the action is any more

RE: Where to buy..

Discount Tire is generally the best prices and service in the area, they smoke Les Schwab. In fact I've seen the CostCo tire guy send customers to Discount telling them "It's where I go for tires we don't carry" Discount Tire main trailer tire is Carlisle Radial Trail RH Trailer Tire, which is certain better then Tow Max. Don't even consider going to BC, tire costs there are 50% more then here.

Not only is it still down, but Firefox, Chrome, etc all refuse to connect saying it's now a "malware" site.

RE: Just Need to Whine a Little

I hear your whine... Last time around we were going to spend all of early Oct seeing the National Parks and Monuments in southern Utah and northern Arizona. We got to Moab Sept 29th and spent the 30th seeing the "high points" of both Arches and Canyonlands. Then we started seeing State and Tribal Parks. We finally gave up and started home on the 12th, getting there on the 15th.... Of course it all re-opened in the 16th We went back this past spring to see the things we didn't get a chance two years ago. I don't think it's going to happen again this year, but even if it does, you have the opportunity to return.

RE: Hot water heater moving out

My first thought was rotten wood, only that should be an Aluminium framed rig. They are usually attached from the front via several screws into the framing around the water-heater. Have you checked those screws?

RE: Opinions Sought from Experienced Full-Timers

... There are deals to be had on quality gear, often in and around retirement areas like Palm Springs. Hubby dies and the partner left decides to cash out. Sad but that's life.. Keep an eye on the papers.. The parents of some friends have a condo down in the Arizona, every spring they start looking for a "widow" unit. They find one that is a great deal and then take it north and use it all summer. About now they sell it at a great deal (that usually makes them a little money) and head back down to Arizona. Wash, Rinse, Repeat.

RE: Opinions Sought from Experienced Full-Timers

I have been thinking and studying up on what is required to go full-time. ... (1) Purchase a new trailer from a high-end manufacturer; an example is Airstream or Mobile Suites by DRV. Included in this category would be the custom manufacturers like Spacecraft. The only drawback I have identified with buying from a high-end manufacturer is the cost – lots of money for a new trailer. I would include New Horizons on that list (2) Purchase a used trailer from a high-end manufacturer and do any required repairs and replace items that wear. “Wear items” would be tires, brakes, interior floor coverings, perhaps the roof membrane, etc. I see two drawbacks to this approach: (1) it will take significant time to find a unit that meets my particular wants and needs that has been well taken care of, and (2) it will require an investment of money to repair/replace items as well as an investment of time to repair/replace (as I expect to do some proportion of the work myself). The advantage of this approach seems to me to be significant cost savings. I've seen a three year old top rig that was trashed (New Horizon) because it was not taken care of by the owner. I've also seen a 20 year old Fleetwood (ya I know) that looked like it had just rolled off the showroom floor, because the owners did. Question: Do you think it possible to find good quality used units from high-end manufacturers? I see many ads on rvtrader.com – just don’t know whether they are of any substance. Yes, but it can be time consuming to find one. The reason is there are actually a small percent of the market Question: Do you think there will be any problem in finding quality shops to do the required repair work? Nope, just avoid Camping World and you are half way there. Question: Do you think there is enough years of useful life in trailers from high-end manufacturers to make such an approach realistic? Yes, look at the percentage of Airstreams, ever made, are still around and compare that to say Fleetwood or any other "main stream" brand. (3) Purchase, either a new or one/two year old used, trailer from a mid-range manufacturer (e.g., Arctic Fox). Do any required enhancements (e.g., upgraded tires) and keep the trailer for four or five years. It looks to me like you may be able to buy two mid-range trailers for the cost of a high-end trailer. I just don’t know how long one may expect either type of trailer to last, so I am not sure whether this approach costs more or less. Maybe, I had to add an inverter, large solar array (factory) and should have a couple others (auto-leveling, etc) Our last Fox lasted over 10 years, with sometimes heavy use. It's all in how well you take care of the rig. I expect that I will properly maintain any trailer. I am starting to think that what I want to do is search diligently until I can find a three year-old to five year-old high-end trailer that has been maintained well and is reasonably close to what I want. . That's probably what I would do

RE: New 2017 Superduties

Pollution Emissions won't be changing for the next set of rules. The big change is the CO2 or Carbon output measured in grams/mile. This is basically a fuel economy requirement for all vehicles dependent upon their physical "Footprint". Carbon is a direct measure of fuel burn. That's how the EPA rate fuel economy is through carbon emissions on a dynomometer through a strict series of tests. Correct and the proposed rules are unlikely to be relaxed, no matter what happens. In fact they are more like to be "strengthened" then relaxed

... Ultimate Public Campground Project .... You do realize these are the people the OP was asking about, right? They list public campgrounds not on your other sites, I've checked.

RE: VW Deisel

I think I'll wait a few more months and pick up a great deal on a new VW diesel. Good cars, great mileage. They'll fix the software and everything will be good. Reputation may take a while to fix though.There is a very good chance that "fixing" the software is going to kill the fuel economy. I guess we'll have to wait and see. My understanding is not the fuel economy so much as performance.
