RE: Looking to upgrade to a larger Class C

To be honest, if I were thinking of an A and trying to stay around the 100k mark, I would look at the Bounders. You can get one that is 33 or 34 feet long in the 120k or less range. And that's asking price, so you may can get a little lower. Here's a 30' model that's a 2014 with only 5700 miles on it. They are asking 81k for it...

RE: Looking to upgrade to a larger Class C

I don't want to in-pose, but does a 30 ~ 32' Class A with a V10 and a 30 ~ 32' Class C with a V10 cost the same? Lets say both are new. It will depend... Our 31' class c was 70k, there are some A's that you can get close to that price. We skipped on an A the same size and around the same price. The C, seemed to have more room inside.

RE: New Mexico

Watched this video on "City of Rocks State Park" in New Mexico and it looked very nice. Whenever we can make it out there, we will be sure to check it out.

RE: How much should a night of camping cost?

Destination areas will be much higher. Disney charges upward to $100 a night as well as some of the parks in the Fl Keys. We have state parks in Fl that now charge in the $40+ range Yep...We have a state park that has water and electric only and it's $25/night to include the reservation fee. The sites are paved and it's our favorite state park. There is another state park that is 5 minutes from us. The istes are paved, but not level one bit. There are no hook ups and it's not as nice as the other one, $20/night. We've never stayed anywhere for less than $20/night. We've stayed in places up to $75/night. There's a wide variety of what you get. Just remember than county, state and other government parks are subsidized by taxes.

RE: downsizing - need advice

It may just be us, but even when we had our pop up (with A/C), we never had an issue. But we read where others said their a/c wouldn't keep up and would put the special reflective cover over the bunk ends. We never ever felt a need for it. But we also didn't spend a lot of time in it during the day (as we don't our RV's), unless it was raining. The only time we are in the RV is to sleep, eat (sometimes), bad weather, or at night, just before bed time. But, we don't full time either.

RE: Cost to install a new awning.

We like ours, especially on a hot summer afternoon if that side of the rig is facing towards the afternoon sun. It does cut down on the heat coming in, especially the window. To us, it ads more living space, especially during some rain. As long as it's not a torrential downpour, we can still sit outside, eat, watch tv on the tv in the storage bay... Would rather have it and not use it than not have it and wish I did... Of course you could always buy and ez up tent. But it will take up storage space and be a pain in the but to put up and take down...

RE: Favorite Camping Location

As of right now, Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort is probably our favorite overall. Favorite beach rv park would be Ocean Lakes in Myrtle Beach, followed by Topsail in Santa Rosa Beach. Favorite mountains spot would be Stone Mountain State Park in North Carolina.

RE: P_C or Laptop

If you want to compare apples to apples (the exact same size and speed on laptop as a desktop), then you will need more money for your laptop apples. Laptops are more expensive than desktops and generally speaking, if you want something a laptop to equal what you can get in a desktop, be prepared to spend more money. I am unfortunate to be the representative in my department to order new computer equipment. My employer requires laptops replaced every two years and desk tops every 4 years... that kind of gives you an idea of comparison.

RE: Purchasing an RV and taxes

One thing you need to know is that the state you live in will want what is theirs...or that they think is theirs.

RE: Cherokee NC KOA

Pulled our old 35' long TT on Hwy 19 (both ways) without issue. It is a winding road with a lot of elevation change, but I didn't find it that bad. But I enjoy mountain driving and was very comfortable pulling the trailer. If you are not comfortable with tight curves and steep inclines/declines, or don't like mountain driving in general, then you might want to go the Hwy 74 route.

RE: RV parks that don't post rates

If you can't afford internet and a $20/month website that you set up and change yourself, you probably don't have much chance of staying in business in the first place That's a harsh statement because not ALL people have the knowledge. To assume everyone can maintain a website just because you can is ludicrous. I have several websites and yes IF you are computer savvy they don't cost much and are easy to work worth IF you know your way around computers. Not everyone in the world is computer savvy. Believe or not the majority of people over the age of 50 do NOT know how to maintain and/or create a website. Most over the age of 60 just don't care to. So many have to pay a company to do it for them and it is not cheap. I help others for free and I am truly amazed at what they have been paying to put up and maintain a website. That said the younger techie generation is making a ton of money helping those that don't know how! :C They make it too easy nowadays to have a web presence...if they can send an email..they can make a website...if they can run a facebook page and post pictures of 4th of July Golf Cart parade, then they can do a website. If they can figure out how to log on to a forum and post something, they can make a website. If a single owner can not figure it out, I am sure that they know someone that can. The "younger techie generation" is by no means making a "ton of money" making basic websites. And if someone is paying a ton of money for someone else to make a simple, basic website, then they are crazy. To have a successful business, you will have to keep up with the times. At least be within the same decade.

RE: Is it okay to drop my tip out beds at rest stops or Walmart?

While 99% of people know that people are sleeping in an RV overnight if sitting in a Walmart parking lot, try to make it inconspicuous as possible. Why?So that, by using a bit of common sense and good manners, we can continue to use Walmarts when we need to. Ditto... People (non campers) don't normally go to the local KOA to purchase their goods. So the image of the Walmart parking lot being a "campground", not only looks bad, but will start to carry a burden in the long run and not being able to park (not camp) overnight. Just like anything, all it takes is for some bad apples to ruin the bunch. This is why we live with so many laws. There used not to be as many laws as there are now. What will happen (and has happened) is that city ordinances are going to start strengthened to not allow such "parking". Don't ruin a good thing. What's the old saying "give an inch and take a mile".

RE: Reserve America: a minor rant.

I've u8sed it for different states and it all looks the same to me...never have had a problem. They've changed the format recently, but once you get used to it, then it's no problem.

RE: P_C or Laptop

Get a good notebook (used to be called laptops, but are not really designed to be used in a lap) But don't try writing on it like a real notebook...lol Laptops, notebooks, netbooks and tablets are all different. Slight differences from one to another, but a lot of difference from a laptop to a tablet. Notebooks are generally smaller and offer less functionality than laptops...though most people will not recognize much on the functionality...

RE: downsizing - need advice

We are in the south. It gets hot and humid. Our coach is a 31' model and has a single A/C. We have had no issues with it. It cools as you would think it should. WE had a 31' TT before that with one A/C and still no issues. We have never used the reflectix stuff that people mentioned or have we felt the need. But you can if you feel it's not sufficing. If you have a choice of 2nd A/C, then I don't know why not to get it. I would. Doesn't mean you have to run it.

RE: roof vents

If you have a Camping World around, go there. They don't charge much at all to install them. They will size it for you.
