RE: If I install Air Tabs & Solid Aero Hubcaps will I get 10 mpg

A belly pan will do the most to reduce drag compared to tabs and hubcaps. One rule of thumb is that 50 % of aerodynamic drag comes from the underneath of the vehicle. Another rule of thumb is that aerodynamic drag increases with the square of the speed, so your best and easiest way to improve mileage is to slow down. Wow strange I was thinking belly pans, even a air scoop/damper in front to help with the wind going under motorhome, maybe that's where I need to do work, my 10 mpg is ridiculous but it sounds good, I average now 7 mpg no wind no hills pulling my Jeep behind. I like my current motorhome 2008 Bounder 32W but would have been nice that Fleetwood would have made it a little more aerodynamic than it is, cant see why they are not doing this today with most motorhomes, always so boxy looking.

RE: If I install Air Tabs & Solid Aero Hubcaps will I get 10 mpg

Pics of these fuel saving devices, save 4 percent here and 6 percent over there and drive 55 maybe I could see 10 mpg ?? http://www.overdriveonline.com/files/2012/10/story_aerodynamics.png https://pbs.twimg.com/profile_images/2699661043/092201a9e4637b4f9177f36e1235b4c1.jpeg

RE: Quartzsite RV Show Not So Great

Better price on the internet for Demco tow bar...they wouldn't match the internet price at the tent. Oh well, I ordered it on line. Yes I did find the prices were on the high side for RV after market stuff, I did not buy anything except a LED solar flashlight.

Quartzsite RV Show Not So Great

Went to Quartzsite this year, I go about every other 3rd year and hoping it would be better and newer stuff but it was not, just the same old stuff 3 years ago and even 3 years before that other than the LED bulbs. What the worse part for me was why was only Paul Evert RV the only one there showing the same Holiday Rambler motorhomes, why no Fleetwood's, no other brands of new motorhomes other than older ones for sell.. A RV show should have at least most manufactures there but they were NOT, basically a swap meet for RV stuff and RV salesmen running around trying to sell only new Holiday Rambler motorhomes.. Maybe this was my last year.. :M

RE: Chassis

Looking to buy used. What year, makes a big difference, if your buying a gas model older than 2006 maybe the workhorse might be better, but if 2006 and newer go with the Ford.. Ford rules on motorhome chassis after 2006.. :W Workhorse could not keep their doors open after 2011.. :p

RE: New Class A for us

The only advantage with the Fred was the fuel mileage. Same chassis as the gas( springs not air bags), noisier up front, less performance than the gas. A friend had one for a while and claimed 10 mpgs vs 8 mpgs for the Chevy gas. Some people liked them. But with higher diesel price per gallon and more costly to service the little if any better fuel millage wont mean a thing to your wallet, not to mention the higher cost.. ;)

RE: the deal fell through, now I have a million questions

The Workhorse chassis is indeed very good, I will not say "The best" but the fact is that there are many which I'd rate as Very Good (I am not a fan of Ford products but when it comes to big rigs, even they are very good, just to give you an idea) Workhorse did have a problem or two with brakes, long solved, so if it's an older rig you need to check on the recall.. and the Chevy engine had a problem with a fuel clip.. Likewise, but that's the only major issues with the Workhorse chassis. One thing though. The Workhorse Chassis usually coes with a Chevy V-8, and bolted to the back of that is a bell housing holding a torque converter and bolted to the back of that a nice little ALLISON transmission. And even FORD says the Allison is the best... So who am I to argue (Oh, by the way I do agree, Allison is the best). But you can get the Allison on a Ford Chassis too,,, if you put a Cummins Diesel in it. Where and when did Ford say Allison was the best ??, before 2006 yes Ford only had the standard trans in motorhomes but after that the new 5 speed tow haul is about as equal as a Allison from my prospective, Ford even has a 6 speed tow haul but not yet available in the F-53 chassis as of yet.. Remember Ford never took a bail out from us tax payers to stay open..

RE: Bunkhouses - 2008+ Winnie 32K, Georgetown 350TS... ??

Kids grow up fast and before you know it they don't want to go camping with mom and dad anymore, mine thought it was lame once they hit 15 to 16 years of age, so you might want to buy one without bunks so you and the wife can enjoy by yourself once they get older, look at floor plans without the bunks and see if the couch makes into a bed. That's unless your kids are very young {under 8} than go for bunks.

RE: the deal fell through, now I have a million questions

Stick with a 2006 or newer motorhome with the ford chassis and you will be very happy, ford did major improvements 2006 and newer, you will be happy..

RE: Financing an RV

The dealer never pays off your trade in. It is added back to the NEW item that you buy. If your trade was paid for then the money that they would give you for it would reduce your NEW item, but being you owe, it really increases it. The 2 lines you are missing is Vehicle Price - $74,547.00 Options - N/A Retail Discount - $9,657.00 Customer Price - $64,890.00 Trade Allowance - $18,000 Trade Difference - $46,890 "Pay off SUV - $17,500" "Total financed before interest..... $64,390" Estimates Payment Option $6,000 Down - 180 Months - APR 5.99% - Payment $524.33 NOTE-- TOTAL WITH INTEREST....... $100,379.40 That sounds about right, you should not be trading in that SUV that you are upside down on, should just keep it for a while till more is paid off than sell it on your own, also you need at least $10,000 down to bring those payments down more. This is why the OPer is upside down on his SUV, little to nothing down and max years on loan.. Get that debt monkey off your back and life will be easier.

RE: Cool Travel Trailer for UFO Buffs..

A real Space Odyssey! Train driver builds UK’s first Roswell caravan based on 70-year-old sketch of America’s mythical craft. Daniel Gregory has built the only Roswell Caravan in the UK, and it’s thought one of two in the world. As well as looking like a space shuttle, inside it has a double bed and is used for trips away. Gregory showcases his masterpiece at rallies around the country, but it lives in his garden.

RE: My new 1998 Boy is home and now for the stupid questions...

I can only answer #1, why do house batts drain down, how fast of a drain are you talking, over night or a week, if its over night and you had no lights or heaters running than maybe the batts are old and need replaced, if your talking a week that might be normal even if little electric was used. What brand is you levelers

RE: Leak at rear bed room slide

We just had a hard rain for about 30 minutes, when out to check the leak on the slide, the slide does not leak unless I extend the slide then when I bring it back in is when it leaks at the bottom cannot see where any water has run down the side, going to get my son to help me and see what we can find when it warms up. Would like to thank you all for the suggestions Roy Sounds like just rain sitting on the slide out roof and when you bring it in some of the rain runs off into RV, somewhat normal, do you have a awning over the slide out, this will help keep the roof dryer during a rain.

RE: Diesel versus Gas

If diesel is what you want than go diesel, its what makes you happy, as for me gas works fine and cost less to maintain.. Remember the more the RV cost the more you will pay in insurance and license fees..
