RE: Planning a trip for next summer, looking for recomendations

We liked the campground within Sleeping Bear Dunes NP and the state park at Holland, Mi.

RE: Use during winter in Mid-West

Sub freezing RVing is really tough unless you stay in 1 spot and have everything really fixed up for the low temps. For 1 thing, your dump valves will freeze and you can't dump.

RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

I hope the manufacturers are listening.

RE: extended service plans

For deciding whether or not to purchase an ext. warranty, for me it's all about the true cost of keeping a motorhome on the road over a long period of time. It's going to be expensive with or without a warranty but I believe that in the long run it will be less without an ext. warranty.

RE: Has this ever happened to you?

No, but I would have been on the phone and calling 911 not knowing what the heck he was up to. I would be looking for him to stick a gun out the window or who knows what.

Gaudy colored and striped RV's

Why is it so popular to design trailers and motor homes with huge, bright stripes and decals. I call it gaudy and over the top. I don't know how many people would want just a solid color RV but why not more subtle. I equate it to the old days of cars which were covered in chrome, stripes and fins and many of us started to "customize" to get a less flashy look, then the European look became popular with little or no chrome, fewer ornaments, black bumpers and a lean mean look. I think we could use some of that with RV's ??

RE: Side work while in camp

If you really need to up your income, I would recommend actual workamping jobs or even just a temporary job in the area.

RE: Question for the planners?

We don't reserve every night for every trip. It depends on where and when. But we do often pretty much reserve a whole trip and so far we have never not made it to the reserved place. But, if we don't I am prepared to sacrifice a few bucks for peace of mind.

RE: extended service plans

In the long run, best to save up some money yourself and have it available for inevitable repairs. And, the older your unit is, the more an extended service plan is going to be or else it will cover less. If I can't afford the repair, then I can't afford the product.

RE: I did it! Advice for others

Sorry, I just don't read posts this long.

RE: Tire insurance?

We have the Good Sams road service for around $100/year and we had a blowout in very rural Montana with our 30 ft. Class C motorhome. It took about 3 hours to get someone there to put on our spare and for us to take the blown tire to the next town and replace the spare but it only cost us the price of the new tire and zero for the road service so we probably paid for the cost of the plan.

RE: Rubber Roof Bubbles

I would get it to a dealer ASAP. I don't believe that is normal and I think it means problems.

RE: Dog Crap

I think the only answer to that is that these people have to be caught fairly often then there has to be a significant consequence such as a fine or being expelled from the campground. I'm not sure that you confronting them will help but I'm all for it. Be prepared for some beligerance, which I once experienced. Here's another one for you. This summer, caught a guy allowing his dog to lap water from the water faucet. When I said, you know that's where people get their drinking water, he said. Oh I thought that was just for dishes.

RE: Chevy sonic vs Ford Fiesta

I pull a 2012 Sonic behind a class c motorhome and have been impressed with the sonic since the day I bought it(used). I think they are similar but I wonder if the size of the Sonic might be between the Focus and Fiesta.

RE: Escow accounts??

Just make sure they have a free and clear title to sign over at the time of sell and write a check. I've done this many times and never thought a thing about it. Although $23,000 is the largest amount I have ever done. But if you have a legal title and possession of the motor home and they have your check and they type out a receipt and you both sign it, I don't see the problem? Maybe I need some education?

RE: Full-Time RVing Question

Where in the heck are you camping at $400/week. Even most private campgrounds run around $30-$40/day with full hook-ups. We will be spending the month of Feb. at Gulf St Pk in Gulf Shores, Al. for around $500 for the whole month and it has full hook-ups, a big laundry, activities and more. For a whole trip of 1 or 2 months we average around $20/day or less. But of course that's a lot of state and national parks, US army Corps of Engineers, etc which include some wonderful campgrounds. Many private campgrounds offer monthly or seasonal rates which would be $1000/month and much less. You have a lot of research to do on the internet and in campground directories.

RE: Cost of active full-timing lifestyle

Perhaps, but eventually you pay the depreciation cost on the MH and this may well be the biggest single cost of RVing, full-time or not. Calculate what you will pay for the MH (lets say $200,000) then subtract what you might get for it in 10 years ($50,000?) so it will cost you $150,000 over 10 years or $15,000 per year? so why not count that as cost? Of course you can lower that by buying used and keeping it longer but it will still be big.

RE: How much is an RV parking space at home worth to you?

When we are browsing around looking at houses we only consider ones with a parking space for our 30 ft MH. It's not just the money for parking but it's just so much more convenient to park it at home; to load and unload, to clean it, make modifications, etc.

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.
