RE: Which RV is best for the zombie apocalypse?

I don't get why this post is getting so many responses, including mine.

RE: Do I have any recourse?

Consider it a huge learning experience. Your errors started by paying the asking price. There are red flags everywhere about this unit.

RE: Advice on long-term plan

Don't know your $$$ situation. But, before jumping into an RV of any kind which will cost a lot and depreciate quickly I would consider renting a small motor home for a 1 or 2 week RV trip to see if you actually like it. Expensive but less than buying one and wanting to get out of it in a short time. There is so much to learn especially about the parts of RVing which are not fun.

RE: Doing the math ....

Several time I have offered a price on something I thought would be too low but the seller said "OK" immediately so don't be embarrassed to offer low.

RE: So appareantly there are too many used 5th wheels

I'm surprised they didn't just make you a really low offer for trade-in. No matter where you try to sell it, be prepared that your's has really depreciated. You will always get really beat up buying new and only keeping it a year or 2. I would hang on to it for several more years and at least spread out the depreciation. Or Sell it on your own but you'll have to price it lower than you want to.

Brightening the exterior finish

We bought a 2003 Itasca Spirit 30 footer and it's in good shape but the finish is rather dull; probably spent it's life outdoors. Has anyone found anything good for this? I tried Nu-finish wax, no improvement. I tried cleaning with diluted awesome cleaner, then wax, no improvement. Then I tried Rejex(recommended at the Winnebago factory). Perhaps it does protect the finish and make it slick, but no improvement at all in looks. Then, tried a non-abrasive rubbing compound to remove oxidation, then Rejex; no change. I'm thinking the finish is just dull and nothing will restore any shine or brightness?

RE: Doing the math ....

Sounds like a good place to start. I might offer 80%. You can always go up but not down. No dealer is going to sell one that doesn't make him a profit. Or, make a low offer on a used one.

RE: New or Used?

Just like a car; if you buy new the early depreciation is fast and steep so save money in the long run with used. The only time I would buy new is if there just isn't used available in what I want. New units can have many problems and it's a high price to pay just to have the warranty.

RE: Boondocking in S Arizona desert and Rattlesnakes

We have camped all over the West, Southwest and South for 40 years and have seen 1 rattlesnake in all those years and that was in Everglades National Park. But, like a friend says about Grizzles, it only takes once. Seriously, you aren't likely to encounter one but just be aware of where you put feet and hands.

RE: Extended Cross Country Travel

No easy answer. Every type of RV has it's pros and cons. We've had 3 pop-ups, a hybrid trailer, a small 5th wheel and now a 30 ft. Class C motor home. With the MH I really like the onboard generator and having the small car that we tow available when seeing the sights. The worst thing about the MH is that when you are towing something you can not back up without unhooking. I don't like the idea of having a big, heavy duty truck to pull the 5th wheel and to drive around getting very poor MPG. Right now, I would choose the motor home and not go back to the 5th wheel.

RE: loud generators

For you anti-generator folks, keep in mind that many of us have been campers for a long time and have now aged a bit. We still love to camp(RV) but we want more amenities and would never go back to tent camping with no elec. etc. We especially want to keep warm and comfortable; thus the generator.

RE: Best gas engine, is V10 good

We bought a 2003 30 footer with a Ford V-10 a year ago with 21,000 miles and so far in 10,000 miles, no problems at all and it pulls strong. Gets from 7 to 11 MPG, pulling a lite car. After a certain year I don't think you'll have much choice as Ford pretty much has the market for gas powered motorhomes unless you go diesel or one of the small sprinter chassis motorhomes.

RE: loud generators

I'm not defending really loud generators but thinking it may not be as simple an issue as it appears. Used to have a trailer and a 2000 Honda generator and I always felt comfortable that the noise level was OK. Now we have a used Class C MH with an Onan 4000 generator. To me it seems a little louder than I would like maybe because it sets right under us when we are inside. You might think it's loud or not but I'm not going to go out and spend the money to replace it. It's the one that came with the MH and seems within acceptable limits.

RE: Help Me Find GOOD Fresh Water Hoses

If you find one tell me. I got one guaranteed not to kink but in order not to kink it is very stiff and heavy and a real bear to coil up especially when cold. To me, handling that damn hose is one of the most distasteful things to manage while RVing. I wish there were 1 of those new pocket hoses safe for drinking as they are a dream to handle. I look forward to the replies.

RE: Missouri State Fairgrounds

Yes we did for 1 night 2 or 3 years ago in the summer. I don't remember details but I think it was just a basic site, probably on grass with elec and water. I don't recall thinking it was awful but just a place to park for a night.

Generator fuel consumption?

We have a 2003 Itasca Class C with a 4000 Onan generator. Does anyone know how much fuel this consumes? When I had a Honda portable I could tell because I filled the little tank but no way to know with an onboard. I think it ran 5,6 hours or more on less than a gallon so I assume this 4000 onan uses at least twice that much fuel?

RE: How much will a big fifth wheel limit us?

What got my attention is when you said you wanted to be out in the boonies a lot in Nat'l Forests, etc. My opinion is that you should limit your trailer length; possibly to 30 ft preferably less and even that can be too long for some campgrounds with sharp curves and short sites. You can get along with much larger but with a lot more planning and making sure you know what you will be getting into in a campground before you head down a gravel road to a remote campground.

RE: Is this fair?

I just think it would be too complicated to have a bunch of different rates for different levels of usage. Some MH people use the bathrooms and shower, some don't, etc.

RE: Adding Levelers?

Most of you didn't mention cost. I really need to know that before I even think about it.
