RE: 5th wheel vs. motorhome

We currently have a 30ft. 5th wheel which we pull with a Chevy 3500 crew cab, long bed, Duramax PU. Lately I've noticed alot of MH/toad combinations at campgrounds and started wondering what are the pros and cons of each set-up. Some of you, I'm sure, have had a MH and toad at sometime and now have a 5er/TV. I'm interested in your opinions. I posed this question on the MH forum and naturally got an overwhelming response in favor of the MH/toad combo. How about here? Even if you received a thousand replies - in favor of either..... what good would it do?..:h Purchase something because it fits someone else's lifestyle?..:S Evaluate your situation, finances, and which one rings *YOUR* chimes. BTW - whichever way you go (or stay) - you *will* most likely be towing something...:W Happy dilemma resolving!..;) . X2 For Sure!

RE: Bicycles-recommendations?

I have purchased bikes at Walmart for the kids and grandkids but went to a local Bike Shop for the bike I needed. I try to ride at least 25 miles a week on a bike trail close to our home. I went to the bike shop because at 6'3" I needed the bike to fit. I would up with a Schwinn Searcher XL Hybrid Bike (Trail/Road) for $350.00. It fits great. The bikes at Walmart are also a very good deal but are certainly not the same as the bike shop bikes. There gears are a lower quality. That being said the bikes I purchased at Walmart are still working very good. They are not used as often as I use my bike but that is my point. If you ride your bike daily then spend a litttle more to get a bike that fits you especially if you are over 60 years old.

RE: What could make LED bulbs burn out?

I purchased the Gold Star led lights last year from Amazon. I started out with 12 of 18 to test them. After receiving them and testing them I order the remaining 6. I have used them quite a bit this year with no problems at all. I especially used the outdoor lite and it has worked flawlessly.

RE: A vs. C

We purchased a class c many years ago to use for exactly what you are doing now at this point in you life. We first used it to visit our oldest daughter in college, go to track meets for our youngest daugter and used as our primary work vechicle for our rental property. It has been awesome. Our 2006 Winniebago Aspect has been to so many colleges and track meets throughout the East coast and we never would have been able to enjoy or childrens growth with such enjoyment. You always have food, bathroom facilities and never have to rush to get to an event - you just go the night before and show up early and make a cup of coffee. We went for a class c for what I call the crumple zone. I was in a serious accident with a full size Ford van and had just enough protection to survive the collsion. The smaller class A's scare me a little after being through that experience so we went with the class c E450. Very easy to park, service youself and we have already downsized since my children are grown and we are now empty nesters. Good Luck with your decision.

RE: I-95 in New Jersey

In Jan hug the coast for flat terrain and mildest temps I-287 til it ends at the NJ Turnpike Turnpike south to Del Memorial Bridge Cross Bridge anf Follow I-95 south in Del to Del Route 896 South 896 til it joins with US 301 Follow 301 to Bowling Green, VA and pick up VA State Route 207 207 to I-95 X2 - - EXCEPT - - watch for the southern storms.. last year parts of DC , MD and VA received as much snow or winter weather as us at times... the lower part of 301 would not be my favorite during a snow fall.. I think that I would feel a bit safer on the highway.. X3 except after the Del Memorial Bridge I would take route 13 which truns into route 1 to which turns into 113 which turns back into 13 to the Cheasapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to 58 west to 95 south. This will bring you out to 95 in south VA. The only down side is going through Norfolk VA. We go this way to the FL keys and it is by far the most traffic free way we have gone for the last 20 years. Once you are on 95 south in NC it is a cleaner drive down south.

RE: Oil Changes,Where?

Change the oil in our E450 Winnebago Aspect in our driveway like many others. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic and change at 3000 mile intervals. I also lube the zerk fittings every other oil, change at a minimum. I have also installed a quick valve which makes the whole process easy. If you have the room the E450 is simple to change the oil. The filter is right there.
