RE: Does Campingworld scew customers that don't buy?

Why would anyone expect to get instant service with a unit bought elsewhere?

RE: Canadian Liquor Prices

I just returned from a two week trip to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Entered the US at Calais Me and returned to Ontario at Buffalo NY. Covered four thousand Kilometers. This was our third trip down. we tried to see places that we had missed before. We spend most of our time driving, not ones for sitting around a campfire. Crossed on the ferry from Digby Ns to St John NB. Two hundred and eight dollars for the three hour trip.

RE: RV life expectancy

Ten years? Five years? You are not serious? Do you burn down your house every twenty years?

RE: Anybody flush their black tank with a hose onto the ground?

If you are around a few hundred farm animals while growing up, you will not be so fastidious!

RE: are tags needed on parked rv in florida

Some insurers want the unit tied down, others do not. We ran into the park wanting it tied down, the insurer that we first approached did not. If you are buying a unit for the express purpose of leaving in Florida, best to get this straight on the start!

RE: How long have you had your C?

Bought our /93, 22ft classC in 2000. It now has 270000 kilometers. We are leaving next week for an extended tour of the Canadian maritime provinces. Over the years, we have replaced several components including, trannie, fridge and engine air conditioning. We have no desire to trade as we have never seen a unit that we like better.

RE: black tank mistake, not adding water after draining?

You will not have to change the seal. You have a small piece of toilet paper in the groove. Open the valve and, while the water is running, use your toilet brush to scour out the groove. Some folks advise putting a dab of Vaseline in the grove.

RE: buying an rv; am i missing something

Oh, I agree. My unit is a /93 class c. The thing is, the Op, says he is on a limited budget, so in my opinion, being green, jumping into something where repairs easily mount up to thousands, is not a wise move!

RE: buying an rv; am i missing something

If you are on a limited budget, a twenty year old motorhome is the last thing that you want! You are much further ahead to go the popup route for a start. Check Craigslist in your area, Offer about sixty percent of asking, you might be surprised!

RE: RV life expectancy

Personally I know of no one who has kept their RV for more than 5 years and most have made changes in less time. Going first to a larger trailer from a smaller one and then from the larger trailer to a motorhome or from a class A to a class B. Go to nearby RV parks and campgrounds and talk to the people there about how long they have owned their present RV and how long they had the prior RV and when they plan to change what they now have for something else. Well then, you do not know me! We have had our /93 class C for twelve years and have no plans or need to change. We have seen most all of North America and will leave in a week for yet another tour of the Canadian maritime provinces.

RE: RV Park Near Halifax, Nova Scotia

Anyone thinking of visiting the Halifax area, should Google "Halifax Explosion" The most powerful explosion until the A bomb!

RE: Alaska or Not?

It is a wonder that any of the millions of Canadians who travel the west, The Yukon and yes, even Alaska, without a gun have survived at all!

RE: Real world cost of owning a class c - ouch!

I just sold my class c after 7 years of ownership. Since I have all records and an accurate depreciation cost (buy-sell) I thought I would calculate the real world cost of use. The costs outlined below include everything related to the rv itself. The costs DO NOT include campgrounds or other vacation expenses. I bought in 2007 and got a great deal with a good discount. We vacationed exclusively in the RV while we had it - owned it for 7 years - drove it 68,500 miles - generator had 455 hours - used it for 455 nights over the 7 year period The total cost over 7 years including depreciation, insurance, license, storage, maintenance, and fuel was about $87,000 - $12,900 / year - $192 / night - $1.28 / mile A motorhome is absolutely the best way to travel but obviously not the most economical. Your math is correct but you " SAVINGS" is WAAAAYYYYYYY off. A suite with a built in kitchen with a great view on a lske mountain etc. runs anywhere from $650.00 - $1,200.00 a night. Soooooooo, let's average shall we and say $1,0000.00 a night. 455 nights $1,0000 a night is ...wait for it.... $455.000 dollars. I'd say a class C or any RV is a bargain when you calculate real world executive suite numbers. So now you can see how much money you SAVED. Now let's talk about PRICELESS memories, that no money on earth can buy Like me this week with my wife and 17 year old daughter on our last run before she goes to college and fly's out of the nest. No money can buy these memories NONE. I wouldn't trade all the money on earth for what I'm experience in this month with the both of them. Anyone that tries to reduce RVing down to dollars and cents, is not seeing the the true value of RVing. You can take all my money, all my possessions, but no one will ever take the memories I'm making as I type this, sitting next to a camp fire eating smores watching my daughter and wife read a book by the light of the fire. A thousand bucks a night? We peons certainly are impressed!

RE: oh rats! guess this was a mistake!

If your carpet is wet the width of the slide. The water may be running down and wicking up from under the wall into the carpet. To allow the slides to retract, there is no overhang on the sides of the slide. I cured mine by taping a piece of stiff plastic, actually a panel off a vertical blind, to the ends of the slide. Works for me because this is on our fiver permanently set up in Florida, the slides are out for months at a time!

RE: Stopping Overnight

When I get to the point that I cannot afford the thirty or so bucks to spend the night in a campground, I will stay home. I think, in almost one hundred and fifty thousand miles we have stayed on Walmart parking lots two or three times. I notice it is almost always the big class As and top of the line fivers overnighting at Walmart I guess with those payments, every little bit helps!

RE: How to go with the flow but restricted by reservations?

we reserve 6M to 9m in advance to camp at State Parks. The entire summer gets planned during week 1 of January. I am happy that I do not travel with you. We will leave in a week for a three or four week tour of the Canadian and US east coasts. We will not be making reservations, as I have no idea of where we will be, or when we will get there. About three in the afternoon, we check out the Woodalls and the GPS to see what is in the area. Only once, several years ago, in California, did we hit a campground that was full, the lady sent us up the road to one that was much better. We prefer private campgrounds, not a fan of state or national parks, have stayed a couple of times in Wallmarts in smaller towns, would not try it near an American city!
