Minneapolis - RV repair shop and Ford dealer recommendations

We just moved to Minneapolis from Cincinnati. We are in a SW suburb of MSP but will drive to the other side of town for good service. Does anyone have a recommendation for a good RV repair shop (dealer or independent)? Also, does anyone know if there is a Ford dealer in town who will do oil changes on the E450? Thanks!

RE: Advice on buying new class C

The Forester and the Sunseeker are sister products with little difference. The little difference steered us toward the Forester (one issue was the fiberglass roof). . I would consider the fiberglass roof to be a "BIG" difference. bumpy Both the sunseeker and forester have fiberglass roofs. Another thumbs up for forest river. We have a sunseeker. All new ones have some issues but forest river was very good to work with when problems arose.

RE: Buying a Rental Class C. How many of us out there? (Long)

Regarding the awning - We had two pop ups and now a class c with a power awning (so that's all we really know). Power is kind of nice as it's a press of a button and done. But, as the previous poster said, more to break. Plus, the bigger factor in my mind, is the power ones are NOT that sturdy. We bring ours in pretty quickly when there's wind and pretty much anytime we leave for an extended period of time. This, in effect, makes it less useful in my opinion.

Regarding the hitch - If it's an '08, it could be equipped to the '08 spec regardless of the chassis / coach year. I think some of the manufacturers introduce their new stuff as running changes. Also, the bumper change does not necessarily mean the hitch got changed too. Perhaps a hitch shop can confirm what's installed before you swap it out.

RV Storage

We own a class C. We currently live in Cincinnati & store the RV outside. We are moving to Minneapolis & are looking for storage there. There are a couple options: - Inside (typically only in the winter at places like fairgrounds) - Outside (typically at a public storage facility) What the general consensus on what's better: - Inside (but potentially with mice / rodents taking up residence) - Outside (but likely with a lot of snow weight on the roof) I know Minneapolis gets a lot of snow as compared to Cincinnati. I'd like to take a chance on the snow weight on the roof vs taking a chance on mice but don't know how much snow weight is too much. Does anybody in the heavier snow areas of the country have any thoughts? Thanks!

Minneapolis RV Storage

We are moving to Chaska, MN (a southwest suburb of Minneapolis). Does anybody have any recommendations for RV storage around there? I'm not finding much on the internet. Thanks!

RE: Insurance & Teen Driver?

It's a "she" but same thing. I would be happy to sign an affidavit or whatever that she won't drive & that I wouldn't be covered if she did. Yes, it's just another vehicle for our household. But it's not exactly a daily driver sitting in the garage. I guess I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. Maybe it's just me (I tend to be cautious) but I can't imagine too many people let their 16 year olds drive their class C's.

Insurance & Teen Driver?

Kind of an off the wall question but here goes… I am literally writing the check right now for insurance on our class C. Our oldest will soon turn 16 & be driving. I know that our car insurance rates will increase. But should I expect that on the motorhome too? State Farm has all our insurance including the car & motorhome. There's no way our 16 year old will ever drive our 32 ft class C so I don't think it should increase - but State Farm may feel differently. Thanks!

RE: Buying a Rental Class C. How many of us out there? (Long)

I just bought a 2013 Fleetwood Jamboree Searcher 25k from Conejo RV in Thousand Oaks, California and drove it back to Arkansas. Super happy with it so far. It was high miles (75k), but I don't care about that as we tend to put very low miles on our rigs and the 6.8 V-10 is good for many many miles. Hard to tell it from new. They put a new mattress in it for me, and every other seat and cushion in the rig looks new. Didn't get a lot of warranty (45 days / 1000 miles) but I used just about everything in it on the drive home and all was well. I'm pretty handy, been keeping my old 2001 Class C going for years with various fixes so I'm not too concerned about anything going out on this one. It's surprisingly well equipped for a rental. Power and Heated rear view windows, color back up camera, etc. Nice sized slide out too, so it's a great upgrade from what we had. Enjoy! Thinking that 1000 mile warranty got used up pretty quick - i.e., in like day 2 - somewhere between So Cal & Arkansas!

RE: Buying a Rental Class C. How many of us out there? (Long)

We have owned our prior rental (Thor Freedom Elite 31 R) for two years and now have it up for sale. Although it is our 2nd camper, my husband is active duty Air Force and it is just a pain to own one while moving so much. We will wait to buy our next after he has retired. We thought we were going to be at this current location for 4 years but now that has changed to two meaning we move again next spring. Ours is on the huge CW Chattanooga, TN lot if anyone knows anyone who might like to help us out and buy ours. It is currently "advertised" at $58K but can be had for just over $45K. It's in great condition and has 50,000 miles on it. It also comes with the chalks, leveling blocks, tire covers, and spare tire. http://www.campingworldofchattanooga.com/class-c/2012/thor-freedom-elite/427052 I'm guessing you're doing a consignment sale. It's a little off topic, but if you don't mind, could you write few lines about how that works? Always been curious. Thanks!
