RE: Double-towing and the livin's easy

Oregon, Washington and I think Canada does not allow double tow.. Sell the 5th/truck and get a motorhome and a stacker trailer and put the worries behind you.. http://i.imgur.com/Qb18ovwl.png]http://i.imgur.com/Qb18ovwl.png My length is only 51 foot and no special license required..

RE: Go cheap or not ???

I saw a really nice newer diesel motorhome full body paint and all with delamination on one side, all are subject to this, but usually higher quality/price will have less to no issues but it can still happen. I would rather buy a new average quality motorhome like Fleetwood for $100,000 than a used diesel for the same price, quality is still as good..

RE: Lake Oroville, CA

I stayed at a rv park at the casino on south side of town, cant remember the name but it was a nice rv park and they brew their own beer at the casino. That is where I will stay if ever in that area again.. Thunder Hill? Probably not Gold Coast. I don't remember them having anything flat to park on. Found it, its called Feather Falls Casino KOA in Oroville, nice RV park and nice casino, large fence in area for dogs to run without a lease and they have their own brewery..

RE: Do I need to carry spare tire?

Is there a valid reason to carry the extra weight of spare tire? Will roadside assistance show up with tire mounted to wheel and then change it? There is no way I could change it myself. Some people on here have posted that they waited till the next day for flat tire service and paid 50 percent more for a tire that did not match the other tires, that's why I wanted a motorhome with 19.5 tires so I can carry a spare and change the tire myself without being ripped off and waiting 15 hours for the service.. :B

RE: The "all electric" coach is probably a misnomer

Sounds all good except you forgot to mention certain motorhomes as my Bounder have the Propane heater/stove/water heater/refrigerator but also have a Electric water heater/heat pumps/convention oven/electric refrigerator.. Only fill my propane tank about 2 times a year and dry camping never needs the generator if I do it right..

RE: 30/50 amp vs. adding the second optional ac unit

Does your 5th wheel have the smart system where it will run both ac with 30 amp, mine has that and I can use just about anything with 30 amp, the smart system just decides what stays on and off during heavy loads.

RE: Considering buying my first motorhome, and a little unsure

Thank you all for the replies. With that, I will start looking at travel trailers. I have a truck that can pull a trailer, and F150. We also own a Tahoe, although its towing capacity is less. Ideally, I would need to stay under 5000lbs wet. This gives me the option of using either vehicle when needed. So, I will start looking in that area. I had a half ton short bed truck and bought a 27 foot travel trailer weighting around 6000 lbs and the truck seemed to weak in both the suspension and brakes had to upgrade to a 3/4 ton, yes with a half ton you want your max to be 5000 lbs, anymore than you will be replacing the truck..

RE: When does the fear stop?

Here is a video about the CHF for the sway bars on your motorhome.. https://youtu.be/MozieIP58PY

RE: When does the fear stop?

What year and what chassis do you have, you might need sway bars or adjust the current ones, as to wind you will get use to it, takes time but you will be a pro.. 2016 F53 chassis. It has billstein shocks installed on it which is nice. After the Safe-T-Plus if I still have issues, I might consider the sway bar. Is it just the front, the rear, or both? What recommendations? Yes it has sway bars installed already but what you need to do is do the CHF is what I think it is called, adjust the sway bar tension on the sway bars to stiffen up the chassis from swaying side to side, someone on here post a link for him about this on the F-53 chassis..

RE: Am I Crazy for Thinking of Stepping Back 9 Years?

The aforementioned favorite RV dealer has a 1 owner 2002 Newmar Dutchstar 3852 DP But we are talking a 9 year older rig. However, to be honest, it looks every bit as nice if not nicer (styling is contemporary, interior is exceptional, new flat panel TV's installed) than the 2011. Keith Your not just going back 9 years you are also trading in for a motorhome that is 14 years old, better think hard on this one...

RE: Considering buying my first motorhome, and a little unsure

I sold a 2002 Fleetwood Flair 25Y 3 years ago in perfect condition for $18,500 cash, needed nothing, even had fresh motor oil, low miles and tires less than 5 years old, so don't settle for the 1st one you see, add a few thousand dollars to your price and you will have more to look at. However a Flair 25Y can be small with kids but it can be done..

RE: Am I Crazy for Thinking of Stepping Back 9 Years?

I would keep what I have for now, then in 5 years get the FINAL motorhome! IMO, it would be foolish to get a different coach knowing that in 5 years I will be trading it in for the "official retirement coach". IMO you would lose less money by waiting. X2.

RE: Am I Crazy for Thinking of Stepping Back 9 Years?

Why do you think a 31 foot gas motorhome will have issues in the mountains, my 32 foot gas Bounder does good and I tow 6000 lbs behind my RV, granted its not a rocket in the mountains but it does get the job done while maintaining at least 45 mph. Also what chassis do you have, if its the Ford F-53 like mine get the 5 Star tuning program uploaded and it will shift better and have better torque in the lower RPM's, also sound proof the doghouse and under the floors in front driving area and it will be much quieter than stock.. Gas motorhomes are cheaper to service and repair...

RE: Can I insulate the engine shroud?

After you put on the heat shield also put a layer of sound proofing material to make it more quiet.
