RE: new fifth wheel owner

Yes, I have bought both. I pick up the FW this weekend. I know it can pull it. I just don't know if she will struggle pulling it or not. I recommend not having any water in the tanks, it's a lot of weight for a 3/4 ton

RE: new fifth wheel owner

I thought the JBLM FamCamp had a 14(summer) /28 (winter) day limit?

RE: Fifth Wheel Under 25 foot

The only one I know of is the 19 ft Scamp Northwoods has a Fox Mountain that is 27 ft. Link As short as a couple years ago there were several lines, but the trend is away from "small" rigs.

RE: Costco Auto Program

Having a Washington dealer is rather "new", there have been dealers in other states for some years. I haven't heard anything "bad" about the program, but have actually heard very little, period.

RE: Retired, want roomy "portable apartment" for two only

Buy used (to start with) most people buy the "wrong" (for them) rig the first time.

RE: F350 too tall for fiver

I've going to guess you have the "off-road" option (which is FX4?). I know in earlier model years replacing the 4" blocks with 2" was the standard fix. I would talk to a -knowledgeable- (ya I know) Service Manager in a truck dept and get their opinion

RE: Suggestion for new to me fifth

What;s your budget? Excel by Peterson, DRV, NuWa, New Horizon and Arctic Fox are are better made, and cost more as a result.

RE: RV parks around Tacoma,Wa

While we have never stayed at any park in the area (why when we can just drive home)... If you stay at Gig Harbor for "doing things" in the Tacoma area, you will have to pay the bridge toll every trip. Of course if you stay in the Tacoma area, the same applies to getting up to Bremerton. We've had friends stay at Riverview in Puyallup, but they don't have cable.

RE: Shopping for used 5er, comparing used Artic Fox and Komfort

We looked at both models years back and bought the 24-5N for two reasons: 1) it was better made and 2) it had lots better storage. The 24-5N had the best storage of any 5er in that size range. If the 24-5N is in as good (or better) condition it would be my choice of the two. As for the "pissed consumer" web-site, the name tells it all. I looked through it for positive reviews, on -ANY- brand and found very few. A careful reading of the reviews on AF there suggests that one person posted three times, with slightly different complaints, or one dealer in Canada has real problems.

RE: Raising a 5th wheel without a jack

I've used it to repack bearings and adjust brakes, never had to replace a tire.

RE: Owners manual

Most "owners" manuals aren't worth the paper they are printed on. There is usually nothing on how your rig was wired, plumbed, anything other then the basic stuff. If you need info on your appliances, most makers have PDFs on their web-sites. If you need repair help, see the RV Repair and Maintenance Manual by Bob Livingston.

RE: Excel Closing Its Doors

X2 Dang!! Few if any true quality manufacturers left. Wish there were an Arctic Fox dealer in the NE. Even Arctic Fox today doesn't come up to the appointments of NuWa or Excel. But I will argue that it's well above the pack, it might even be the #2 quality rig in production today (with Excel, NuWa, DRV and Sunnybrooke all gone). Northwoods did try an "east coast" factory about 10 years ago. I don't know why they shut it down, but then did.

RE: Excel Closing Its Doors

Other than Lifestyle, you now have to step up and go to New Horizon or the likes to get something other than a weekend trailer. ... Ken Not really Winnie (formerly Sunnybrooke) are certainly better then that, as are Outdoors RV and Northwoods (Arctic Fox)

RE: Excel Closing Its Doors

There's always Redwood. Bruce It is owned by Thor as well and the ones we looked at were not very impressive...Lippert frame and lots of LCI components. I will hang on to my HitchHiker, thank you very much. Ken THOR ownership is why I don't recommend DRV anymore. Much like why I don't recommend "Sunnybrooke" (Winnie) 5ers. All accounts I've seen show they took a real hit in quality when Winnie bought them.

RE: Excel Closing Its Doors

I hope is only a rumor. It's on their Facebook, their owners forum... sadly not.

RE: Excel Closing Its Doors

Well, #(@#!, the eliminates another of the quality rigs I recommend. The list continues to get shorter

RE: Sailun S-637

Never used them personally, but price tends to follow quality. Cheaper tires are often "cheap" quality also.

RE: Oregon gas tax and minimum wage going up?

Here's another article about the gas tax and one way they are looking at money: http://www.msn.com/en-us/autos/news/oregon-to-try-uss-first-mileage-based-road-tax/ar-AA9ztKN Lots of states are "looking" at the per-mile-tax. So far none have gotten past the "looking" state. Their theory is between electric and newer high MPG vehicles, there is less tax dollars coming in for fewer miles driven. Some years back converting vehicles to propane got popular, so a bunch of states brought in special taxes for propane powered vehicles.

RE: T Mobile Coverage in the West

As noted, solid in urban areas, spotting along rural interstatess, not there in the truly rural areas. Despite the fact that T-Moble is headquartered in Washington.
