RE: Curbside or Streetside Kitchen?

bumpy, thanks for mentioning the safety during driving situation. I had never thought of that. I currently have a TT.. and have driven a Class C a good bit, I used mirrors and rear view camera. Never thought about seeing out that side while driving. oh yeah, it had a curbside kitchen, so seeing out wasn't an option. for those that have mentioned the floor, I will look at that. I haven't gone in any of the floorplans I am leaning towards, just know that the ones I was in that had curbside kitchen felt closed in to me, especially those with center living room and entertainment center. I am looking at gas MH's in the 36-38 ft range and hope to find something a couple of years old. Right now my favored floorplans are Georgetown 378TS, Thor Challenger 37KT, and Coachmen Encounter 36KS. I am hoping to go sit in some soon, just have to travel several hundred miles to see any of them.

Curbside or Streetside Kitchen?

As I am beginning to narrow down floorplans for my full-time MH, I see lots of Class A's have kitchen on Curbside. Seems to me that having view blocked on a large portion of that wall would be at cross purposed with looking out your windows. those of you with the kitchen on curbside, do you find you miss looking out at your "own" patio? Do you enjoy looking out the windows at your neighbors (or your sewer hookup)? I really think I would much prefer having kitchen on streetside (driver's side) and more windows on curbside/patio side. Is this something that is an issue? I plan to full-time for a number of years. Right now, I prefer more rustic state park like sites, but know some places that may not be an option. Either way, wouldn't you want your best view from LR/DR to be out across your own patio?

RE: Full timer mail

amberfiretj02, will they send to another UPS store for you to pick up there? I think saying to send it to a store in XXX town would sometimes be better than trying to give them a specific location to receive shipment.

RE: Your opinion wanted, no seriously ... mail?

so do any of you use a mailing address that is drastically different from your "domicile"? I plan to use our family farm address - new location for me, but same state - as my domicile, but as it is in a very rural area there are limited mail services nearby (one UPS store about 45 miles away). Do I need to stick to same state or will it cause problems?

RE: Live in Georgia; register in Georgia?

I work with numerous folks who have moved from NC to GA and from discussions with them, there doesn't seem to be a big enough difference in cost, to make it worth risking the consequences of breaking the law. GA is easy to register a new vehicle in, even private party sales.

RE: About to retire but need some advice

Let's don't beat Bob up for bringing up a dissenting opinion. It started a great discussion and got different viewpoints across. He was not rude (although originally I thought his comment a bit "high and mighty") and he considered other peoples viewpoint. So great sharing of ideas.... This is what I go to this forum for. New ideas and discussion.

RE: So what are your plans for 2017?

planning a beach trip with DD and DGD's (4 and 6 mo) for July.. Weekend trips have had a kink thrown in them as my work schedule is changing, but I will still get some in. Just not sure how far I will be able to go. Considering trading TT for fulltime Class A during the year sometime. Thinking it will be easier to trade and then sell house, than be frantically looking for MH and closing on house, moving etc.

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

Several people have mentioned the use of FB groups as growing. I have joined a number, but have found that on this forum, we have more knowledgeable people willing to help others. More of the FB groups have people that seem to have absolutely NO IDEA of anything to do with an RV, and everybody else saying just go for it with no clue as to the reality. I see lots of really off the wall questions that people are jumping into things without doing any research and on this forum, most posters tend to recommend going slowly and doing research. Different types of folks? I have a tendency to research anything to death before I go forward.

RE: Roaming RVers Stephen Foster park. 3-5 Feb 2017

well guys, I didn't want to do this, but I have to cancel. Just cancelled my reservation, so RVnewbie if you want to extend through Sat, maybe you can get my site.. Site #40.. you can call and check. Those of you who don't know, A large long track tornado went through south GA on 22 Jan staying on the ground for over 70 miles. Not only was the Marine Base where I work hit, the actual building I work in was hit. Not destroyed but damaged. We have just gotten back into the building with generator power. We have intermittent network/internet via hot spots as of today. I know they are changing up work schedules and trying to function in that kind of environment is exhausting. I am not sure yet if I need to work Friday and I have had no time/energy to prepare for this trip so I am going to stay home and rest this weekend. We are all just thankful it happened on Sunday and not a weekday afternoon as there would likely have been deaths there on the base as well as other industries nearby. I know a few people that had homes or property damaged, but none of the injured or killed. I thank the good Lord for my blessings and do what I can to get us back to normal work as quickly as possible

RE: Tornado Warning

here you go... CMCDAR thanks for the link... I was just so overwhelmed by seeing the devastation that I couldn't think clearly to do some type link or look at the pictures anymore. My place of employment was hit and I have had to go through some of these areas and it is just heartbreaking.

RE: Tornado Warning

additional info... just a few minutes after I posted to get out of the RV if you have a warning. Our tornado warning went off. EF3 tornado tore through sections of the county including completely wiping out two mobile home parks and numerous homes and businesses. some one mentioned the storm damage they saw on I75, that was some of it. I looked for a good picture to show, but can't come up with one. try looking at www.albanyherald.com for pictures. Numerous people have been out of work for days, because our places of employment were hit. When you see pictures of the houses and mobile homes (that in GA must be tied down with hurricane straps) blown to bits where you can't even recognize that it was a home, you realize there is no way to live through a direct hit on an RV, so you definitely should get out. Heartbroken over two tornadoes hitting our town in 20 days.

RE: RV Mfg's Missing a new market segment

Jayco makes a Jayflight TT 38BHDSIt is a bunkhouse, but can be ordered with a queen in bunkroom instead of bunks.. My Jayco dealer mentioned it to me, because he knows my mother often travels with me and with the trailer I have now, one of us has to sleep on jackknife sofa. Not the best for two women over a "certain age" LOL

RE: About to retire but need some advice

I figure volunteering for 2-3 months at a time up to 6 months a year will allow me to travel the rest of the time. I also know I am much more productive on days that I HAVE to get up and get going. I tend to vegetate if I don't have a reason to get out and go/do. I have spent the last 20+ years volunteering with youth organizations while working full time, so volunteering is not a stretch for me and I love state parks.

RE: Roaming RVers -March Rally - Reed BIngham State Park

Just a heads up for anyone who is interested. If you have seen the news about the mobile home park in Adel that was hit by the tornado, it did not cause any damage at Reed Bingham. That was a true mobile home park on the opposite side of I75, so all is well for our rally

RE: About to retire but need some advice

Not being smart a$$ or mean spirited but IMO if you need to work for extra income it's not time to retire. Wife and I both retired at 56 and everyone said we would be back out in workforce in a year or going nuts at home. Haven't looked back once and can hardly remember working now. Don't quit that good paying job until you are ready to quit working! JMO Enjoy your retirement, whenever it starts. So Bob, because I expect to volunteer for site at least 6 mos a year for the first 2-3 years at least to make fulltiming more comfortable until I draw an additional pension, does that mean I shouldn't retire? I plan to retire at 60 and have no spouse to draw additional income, so the first couple of years would be tight without that cost saving measure. Am I being unrealistic?

RE: Tornado Warning

Keep an eye/ear out for tornado WARNINGS.. if they are issued, get out of the RV.. bathhouse is likely the safest place. save yourself.. don't worry about the MH.. a tornado will blow you to pieces.. too many people have already died in the last 24 hours.

RE: Front Kitchen in TT - Pros and Cons

I would think a front kitchen would be a nice setup. I have a rear kitchen and love having the kitchen at the end. more counterspace than most middle kitchens and lots of storage. I like the fact that the kitchen doesn't get traveled through between living, bathroom and bedroom. As other said, you will have to consider tongue weight, but I have to do the same in reverse. (add tongue weight to offset heavier rear)

RE: Roaming RVers -March Rally - Reed BIngham State Park

Just reserved for site 23. Arriving on the 10th. I have to work on Friday, but as Reed Bingham is only an hour from the base, I should be there by late afternoon. Invited Mom, but she won't decide until last minute.
