RE: Protecting The Truck

One service that the protective contraptions do is provide a laugh for the natives. I asked about headlight covers in Whitehorse, the Ford parts guy laughed and said" we only sell those to tourists"!

RE: Walmart

Why is it almost always large, fancy class A (busses) seen overnighting at Walmart etc? Are the owners of class C's and trailers actually dumb enough to pay the overnight fee at a campground?

RE: Snowbird Longevity, and related

As Canadians, we will stop wintering in Florida when we are priced out of out of country insurance.

RE: All year round camping in SW Ontario

The tobacco grown in Essex county is, was burly. Pipe and cigar tobacco. The tobacco grown around Simcoe is Virginia leaf, cigarette tobacco. Most Americans do not realize that Southern Ontario is far south of much of the US. The Dakotas being a prime example!

RE: Hurricane Mathew

Hi. We are planning to leave Ontario for Florida this coming Friday, Should be travelling I26 from Columbia down to I95 on Saturday. From what I can read, we should have no problems with roads, gas or motels from Columbia to Ft Pierce Florida. We would appreciate if anyone knows differently. Thanks.

RE: Gun laws

As a Canadian who travels and camps extensively in the US, The fact that so many RVers carry their rig, scares the **** out of me. At least in Canada, when the drunks come out to play, the chances of anyone being shot are rather remote!

RE: 1975 Dodge Sportsman "c"

Get a spare set of keys and hide them OUTSIDE the rig. Mine are under the insulation in the fridge compartment.

RE: Travelling From Sarnia Ont. to New Brunswick

I second the trip around the Gaspe if you have time. Much nicer than the greatly over rated Cabot trail!

RE: Class C Depreciation

I would disagree, with, pretty much the entire statement. First, your best buy is about a 3 to 4 year class C. Buying new and trading it in every 4 to 5 years is, in my opinion completely nuts. Thing will lose close to half its value in 5 years. (that's like a 30kplus loss every 5 years) Unless you pay cash you will still be way underwater in 5 years. Buy the right one, a few years old, get what you want and drive it till the wheels fall off. Bought ours 11 years ago. It was 4 years old at the time have put 60K on it and is still going strong. Have no plans to replace anytime soon We bought our /93 classC used sixteen years ago. since that time it and we have been in every corner of N America. It has a shade under one hundred and seventy thousand miles on the clock. We paid $22,000 Canadian and could easily sell for five or six thousand. Barring accident or fire, this will be our first and last unit. As I turn eighty this fall, who know how long we will be able to travel extensively? We are not campers in the usual sense, we have never over nighted less than a full days drive from home!

RE: RV armor coating vs pvc replacement?

Has anyone considered recovering the roof with flat aluminum sheeting. I recently covered a soft spot with a sheet of the same material used for flashing and window trim. Laid a bead of Dicor, placed screws about every four inches, looks great! I do not think it would be a overwhelming task to cover the complete unit. Of course, I am only 22 ft long!

RE: Horrific towing incident

Perfect reason to have a dash cam. At least the public would know who the *** holes were. There is too many road commando's these days. I made my mind up long ago after our own experiences. I will not react to someone else's stupidity. I will not swerve or slam on my brakes for them. My dash cam will be the jury. very wise. smashing up your vehicle, working with insurance companies, using loaner vehicles, is a fun way to spend your vacation days. bumpy It might be better than being dead, like those horses, or maybe killing some other innocent person or family. At least the jerks won't be driving away, and my dash cam is my evidence. That's what insurance is for. Yep I'll take that chance. With your attitude, I hope that I am never anywhere near you on a road!

RE: Passing through Timmins, ON, where can I fill water tanks?

I have had good luck at Walmart garden centers. If you ask, in all likelihood, you will be given a hose and told to help yourself!

RE: Engine replacement

Sounds to me as though the OP is getting sucked in. If the engine is toast, why can he not give specifics? It is very unusual for a 460 to go bad at any mileage. 29000 miles? come on!

RE: "Don't Scare The Tourists"

Cattle are more deadly to humans than gators, sharks, bears, bison, and snakes; I guess it's safer near the water in Fla than rural Midwest. No necessarily true. Florida is home to more cattle than any state in the US!

RE: Hello from Florida

Hi. We lease a lot at Lake Okeechobee. Love it there. The best insurance against breakdown is Good Sam.

RE: 2 year old tires - small cracks

Looks to me as though they were run soft!

RE: Doable or overly ambitious?

Few will agree, but I would recommend skipping Yellowstone entirely. Greatly overrated in my opinion. Black hills, Mt Rushmore, Bryce canyon will give you far more for your money!

RE: Cheap Fix for Big roof Problem

It does not look as though the area is very large, I had the same problem. What I did was get a piece of aluminum sheeting, the type used to cover window trim etc, make sure that it is large enough to cover out to solid wood. Using short screws, I prefer sheet metal screws, they have a coarser thread, place screws about three inches apart around the perimeter. After doing this, cover the seam or edge with self levellingg Eternabond. DO NOT use silicone. This repair should last the life of the unit with very little expense!

RE: Prevost engine swap possible?

We have lots of them. The guy who bought my boat had a complete rebuild including magna flux on a 8-71 last year.

RE: Prevost engine swap possible?

Id take that old Jimmy any day,compared to those smog choked def cumaparts Aint that the truth? I spent my career running 871s in commercial fishing boats. They will spit out most of the rings and keep running. No one wanted a Cummins, too temperamental, kinda hard to pull a boat off to the side of the road and wait for a mechanic!
