RE: What do i need to add.

Try some fuzzy dice to hang on the rearview mirror.

RE: Madison CG Yellowstone: length restriction

The person you spoke to has probably never seen a campsite. Call center may be in India.

RE: Leaving Nor Cal in Early March

In 15 we crossed the border May 1st at Sweet Grass MT. Spent 1st night at Fort McLeod, bad head winds. Moved on up to Banff for 3 nights great sunny days then headed for the Icefield anyway. Got to Lake Louise and the weather turned rain, sleet, snow couldn't see anything but the temperature stayed above 30 and the road was only wet. Drove on to Hinton AB for an overnight. Stayed 2 after overnight snow 3-4 inches wet slushy snow. Advised it would be gone in the morning. Next day drove to Grand Prairie on 40 the muddist highway ever, with all the oil patch work trucks flinging mud as they pulled onto it. The rest of the trip was uneventful except for the scenery and wildlife.

RE: Door latch problems

,7 1/2 years traveling in our previous 5 the wheel sometimes it was difficult to close the door after a day of travel even if it was level. The next morning all was well. Just the way it is.

RE: How China takes the FICO score beyond all limits.

Ok, and this has what to do with RVing? It's the dating part. If you have a good fico score you can have a nicer rig which will attract the ladies. I thought everyone would understand that.

RE: Christmas present from USDA

I wonder why they need that info and what they do with it? When I was in business we had enormous overhead just to fill out govt paperwork, had large tax dept, environmental engineers, attorneys and host of other expensive people who did nothing but deal with govt rules. So they can hire an additional 1000 employees to shuffle those forms around. The more employees the bigger the budget and justification for being.

RE: Tampa RV January show

We've gone several times planned what we wanted to see and made it a one day afair. No sense looking at what didn't fit our needs or what we couldn't afford.

RE: First time... full time.

Since you plan on long term parking I have a few suggestions. If you're not moving regulary I would say go with a single rear wheel gasser one ton much easier as a daily driver, cost of diesel upgrade buys a lot of gas, and a 5th wheel trailer that is compatable weight wise. Take a look at true 4 season trailers since you may take a lucrative job in a true four season location. Also look for 2-4 year old models and save a bunch. We traveled 7 1/2 years in a used 5er before our present rig which at our age will be our last and as they say you can't take it with you so enjoy it while you can.

RE: How do you secure a wall clock?

Command strip hook and small piece of heavy duty velcro at the bottom to keep it from swinging while traveling.

RE: RV Loan Interest Deduction yes or no?

It's really pretty simple: interest on a maximum of $750,000 of new acquisition debt. The old number was $1.1M of debt (which is grandfathered is that is where you are at now). Source: TaxPolicyCenter.org $1.1M just a little less than my lifetime earnings. :(

RE: How long does it take to shop for a high end 5th wheel

We started last April looking at Heartland Big Horns moved on to Landmark 365 for more CC then they added all the options we didn't want as standard for 18 models. Started searching the web for a 17 that had the options we wanted and as few of the options we didn't want. One dealer that had one we were interested in also carries Mobile Suites and had a 17 with a price that was more than we wanted to pay but DW fell in love with it. Put a deposit on it in August and picked it up first week of Oct. Not the perfect 5er but meets most of our requirements. This is most likely our last RV given our age and pocketbook though the 401's are looking good.

RE: Do I need to reserve in advance?

We like state parks that have have some sites set aside for non reserved sites. Good for an over night if and a BIG IF you don't roll in just before dark after your 500 mile day of pavement. If you want to roll on the miles get up early to run them. Since we're retired we don't move till 9:30 or 10:00 but we're off the road at 3:00 -3:30. We've pulled in to RV parks that were empty at 3:30 but not a site left by 6:30. I often check reserve america though I don't reserve there, just check out how many sites are non reserveral and how many reserveable are available. It gives me a view of what we may find . Remember the parks close to the metro areas fill up with weekenders real quick. We were camphosts at a state park and the locals would come in on Thursday and takea site for the weekend as well as that Thursday night. They would set a pup tent up pay their fee for the weekend and Thursday night and be gone till the following afternoon.
