RE: Camping near Montreal

We vote also for the KOA. Besides a very nice campground, the staff Is excellent. We had problems with our tow vehicle, leaking front trans seal. Had the truck towed to local Ford service and had to stay extra 4 days and we only had reservation for 1. They took extra care to accommodate our situation. 4 stars in my book.

RE: Class C purchasing decision...

Great news, I read on Forest River Forums that Sun seeker/Forester models will soon have the option of split twin bunks with a TV in the middle on the cab over. Twins will be in a North South configuration. Contact Forest River.

Keystone 310tb

Has anyone seen, or purchased, one of these tt/toy haulers yet? I really like the side slide bed feature.

RE: Evergreen Everlite

Well we went to look at the unit today. We decided that it was too cramped and not enough storage space for our liking. Otherwise, a solid unit. Thanks for the input. The search continues...

RE: Evergreen Everlite

Great, glad to hear that all who responded are well pleased and no specific problems save for the 2010 leak someone mentioned. I'll throw out another question. I hear folks remark that they get better mileage with the Everlites. For comparison, I currently tow a 2003 K-Z 2505 which has a dry weight of 4500 lbs or so. The tow vehicle is a 2005 Ford Excursion with the V10 and 3.73 rear end. We get about 8-9 MPG when towing. Are folks meaning that with a similar weight Everlite they will see an increase in MPG vs another non-Everlite model?

Evergreen Everlite

I am planning on an inspection of a used 2011 Everlite camper which is for sale in my area. To owners of this brand, what specific questions should I be asking, items of interest I should be looking for? Thanks!!

RE: I-74 or I-95?

I95, most direct.

RE: Experience with RV Direct??

Any warranty on the chassis will be handled by Ford, while the 'rv' portion will be handled by RV dealer performing the work. To me the most important is the Ford warranty.

RE: The 2500 is no more?!?

We have a 2005 Excursion and I echo the sentiments. Can't see us ever getting rid of it. Nothing else on the market can compare to size and towing capacity. We've been from VA to Yellowstone 3 times and #4 coming this summer. The Ex hardly breaks a sweat when crossing Togwotte Pass and the Divide in Yellowstone with 2 kids, dog, wife and I.

RE: prohibited tunnels "propane"

Gee, no hazmats in tunnels? What about the 100 gallons of UN 1203 (that would be gasoline/diesel) in that thin walled container called a fuel tank? How many thousands of gallons of fuel are in these tunnels at any one time? Much safer are the 10/20 gallons or so of propane in DOT approve pressure vessels. A fine example of politicians making rules when they haven't a clue of the HMT regs. Kudos to AL as there has never been a restriction on I-10 under Mobile Bay and nary a problem. Is the Eisenhower tunnel on I-70 hazmat restricted? Bet not.

RE: Tires

Thanks for the comments. If we have the sufficient cash, may go ahead and change.
vjstangelo 02/22/14 05:06pm Tow Vehicles

I own a 2005 Ford Excursion. We use it almost exclusively for towing our TT. The tires are 2008 model Goodyears. They appear to be in good shape, no sidewall cracks. My question. How old is too old for tires that don't have many miles put on them each year?

RE: FR3 Quality

I would like to have any FR3 owners chime in on what influenced them when it came to signing on the bottom line. Thanks!

RE: FR3 Quality

We have been shopping a LONG time for our 1st motorhome. I think we will finally pull the trigger at Hershey this fall. We really loved Hershey show last fall since virtually all motor homes in production were represented. Looked at Sunseeker Class C's, Thor ACE, Hurricane, Winny Class A's and come to the following conclusion. For the money, Winnebago had the best made motor home for the average Joe. We walked out setting our goal as a Winnebago Sightseer 33C. But, the more we thought about it, dropping $125K on a motor home was not a responsible thing to do. We have been researching and really like the FR3 30DS. And given we can get one for almost half the price of the 33C, we plan on looking seriously at the FR3 in September. The following logic keeps recurring: are better cabinets and a fiberglass roof, etc., really worth paying an add'l 60K? I read about many happy FR3 owners on the FR Forums and that FR is making many improvements during the year based on customer feedback (e.g. LED lighting throughout, King bed).

RE: Gettysburg with Kids

Hmmm, I kind of disagree, Gettysburg is almost more a park than a museum. If I had kids I'd spend a day at the campground swimming, biking, then a half day at the visitor's center. The gun display will surely delight, and take the kids to the movie and cyclorama. The gift shop is very kid friendly. The final half day take them to the eternal flame peace monument and visit the cannons. Also tell the story of the 11th PA and their mascot dog Sallie. The 11th PA monument is near the peace monument. Head over to Devil's Den, and let them climb around. Then head up to Little Round Top and the overlook tower there. Have fun.

RE: Sunseeker or FR3

Thanks to all for the thoughtful replies. The floor models we are looking at are the Sunseeker 3010ds, and the Forest River FR3 30DS. We are also looking at the Fleetwood Storm 32H and may consider one of the Georgetown 327DS or 328TS if the extra money justifies. That's the beauty of the Hershey show, they will probably have all models on display! Back to the Sunseeker vs FR3. Note both floor plans are nearly identical. The plusses on the Sunseeker are: Adzel walls and fiberglass roof, ability to get 4-door fridge, extra sleeping capacity over the cab, separate entry doors for the driver/passenger and as previous poster said, just might get my DW to drive it from time to time. For the FR3: Available with king sized bed, 360 hp V10 (vs 300 hp for the Sunseeker), extra sleeping capacity over the driver's seats, and the small computer workstation in the passenger's seat. Why the Storm? I like the ability to turn the lower bunk into a separate sitting area with some privacy and extra sleeping capacity if needed. Keep the input coming! Can't wait for September as I know we will pull the trigger on a new unit this year.

Sunseeker or FR3

I was looking at these R V's at the FR website. We hope to order our 1st motor home at this year's Hershey show and was wondering the following. Has anyone here looked at both and then chose the FR3 over the Sunseeker or vise versa? What affected your decision? Thanks for sharing.

RE: Towing with a minivan

OK, my 2 cents. Our first camper was a 17 foot Jayco Kiwi hybrid which had a dry weight of 2200 lbs or so. We first towed with a Dodge Caravan, then an Olds Silhouette (which we still own, original motor and transmission, 220,000 miles) with the factory towing package (3500 lb towing capacity). We towed that camper with our vans from VA to Canada and to FL, no problems. Our cargo was my wife and our 2 now college aged children. You should be fine with a similar setup. Go for it and get camping!

Anyone tow a TH with an Excursion?

Anyone tow a toy hauler with an Excursion? V10 or diesel? Any upgrade over stock?
