RE: Towing behind a MH

Sorry can't resist. You are new to RVing and you bought a what? Man that is big. I've RVed and towed various things for 40 years and I wouldn't touch that combination of huge MH and all that stuff to tow. Good Luck and be careful.

RE: Ride quality of class C vs. pulling trailer with truck

When we towed a small 5th wheel with a Chevy half-ton the ride quality didn't deteriorate so it was good. Our 2003 30 ft. Class C doesn't ride or steer as well, takes bumps harder, etc. But it is acceptable to us.

RE: Slide outs

Not so far with our 30 ft. 2003 Itasca with 2 slides. Sometimes they act kind of scary going in and out kind of moving around, jerky, etc. but still working.

RE: Newbie - Sewer hose recommendation?

I agree; Rhino at Walmart.

RE: Watcha Towing with three or 4 wheels??for older folks

Our 2012 Chevy Sonic sedan works very well and weighs 2700 lbs. Yet has nice ride, handling, etc and averages 30 MPG. If you want an auto trans., your choices are limited to 4 or 5 unless you get a pretty old one.

RE: Finding a parking place

We have a 30 ft. Class C and tow a small car. Most of the time it's not a problem if you don't mind walking a bit. But, it can be a problem. As I recall downtown Hot Springs, Ark. was a big problem. Sometimes visitor centers are RV friendly, sometimes not.

RE: How many make park reservations vs find as you go.

Keep in mind that reservations can almost always be canceled or changed. Sometimes for no more than $10 sometimes more. I used to hate spending that extra money but I'd rather have a reserv. that I have to cancel than to go a destination and find it full. $15 or $20 spent on changing the reserv. isn't much as part of the overall cost of a trip.

RE: How many make park reservations vs find as you go.

Could vary tremendously. For southern and coastal Fl. state parks reservations are a must IF you can even get them. Generally same for heavily visited national parks but there are some really big campgrounds in both Grand Teton and Yellowstone which usually don't fill. For parts of the country not coastal or heavily visited, just wing it. But, there can be unexpected fishing tournaments or big events which change everything. Only experience can answer your question but reservations remove a lot of stress for me.

RE: Gas mileage

I didn't say 11 but 7-11; big difference. Only 11 under absolute perfect conditions, not towing and for a short period of time. Overall average probably closer to 8 but haven't measured it.

RE: Heater ideas

We don't seem to have any moisture but you do have to allow some fresh air for safety.

RE: Gas mileage

10 MPG would require 110 gal.so I would estimate 150. Depends on terrain, wind and towing or not. My 30 ft. V-10 gets 7-11 MPG.

RE: Heater ideas

Our 30 ft. Class C came with a catalytic heater installed by previous owner. Pretty nice and unique. It is attached to the wall just inside the door; about 2 ft. by 2 ft. and 3 in. thick. It's hooked into the propane system. Ingnites by spark and operates with no electric at all. Puts out a lot of heat but of course no fan. Great when dry camping.

RE: Potential Snowbirds - LOTS of questions!

We head to Fl,Al,and Ms. in mid Jan. from Illinois in a 30 ft. Class C. until late Mar. We stay in maybe 10 different location any where from 2 nights to 4 weeks. We use almost exclusively state parks or national parks/forests campgrounds. We like nature not manicured private campgrounds. Nearly all have elec. and water usually not sewer. Many limit to 14 days but not all. There are many great campgrounds throughout Fl. and along the northern Gulf Coast. But for southern and coastal Fl. you need reservations immediately. Don't know a thing about the private ones.

Towing Ford Fiesta

Towing Ford Fiesta

Presently we tow a Chevy Sonic behind a 30 ft. Class C and it's great although the 4 in. drop hitch I have to use drags easily. I'm thinking of a Ford Fiesta(hatchback non-turbo). Looks fun to drive, even a little lighter. How is the height of the tow bar(Blue Ox) receivers sticking out the front? Is disconnecting the battery much of a problem? Other considerations? Thanks

RE: Help with first RV

Almost too many issues to address. 5 is a lot of people so 1st priority is something that will sleep everyone. We love our motor home but really big difference in price between a new MH and say a pull behind trailer or pop-up if that's an issue. Personally, all things being equal I would go with Winnebago. We've toured the factory. Our 2003 Itasca(Winnebago) 30 ft. Class C would sleep 5 if there were a bed over the cab instead of our entertainment center but it would be 2 in a great queen bed, 2 over the cab and 1 on the couch or dinette. I think you can get way more for your dollar with a regular Class C than the newer European style. Incedentally, I think "RV" means recreational vehicle which covers all campers. Sounds like you're looking at "motor homes".

RE: what to do about your mail when snowbirding

You have to be friends with a neighbor but what's worked best for us is to do a temp. address change to the neighbor, then we exchange calls every couple of weeks to discuss what looks important for them to open.

RE: new fan - vent cover or rain sensor?

We love the fantastic fan over our bed and it has a good cover so I never use the temp setting or the rain sensor.

RE: Michigan

Great state but we prefer state parks and Mich. really sticks it to out-of-staters so much that it is a factor in our decisions. Also, many northern state park campgrounds we find short on amenities especially for the cost.

RE: Aluminum car trailer vs. 4-Down

I use a new Blue Ox tow bar for 4 down and it's great. When parked it just easily stays on the MH and folds up out of the way even if I drive with it on. My son uses a tow dolly and finds it a nuisance and wants to go 4-down. A trailer might be more of a nuisance. However, it costs a lot to set up the car for towing and the tow bar also cost a lot.
