RE: Loaning Trailer to Friend -- UPDATE

We have a fiver permanently set up in Florida. We leave the keys with a person who checks it occasionally. A couple of years ago, during the summer, she called asking if we would consider allowing people who were coming in for a funereal to use our trailer for a couple of days. Of course we said yes. When we got down in the fall, the trailer was neat as a pin and a nice thank you note was on the table, We still have no clue who these folks were. Would we do it again? Sure, why not?

RE: Too much stuff

Our house is packed to the rafters. There are school books from sixty years ago, Stuff our kids made in grade school. my sons bow and arrows from when he was about ten. We could easily stock the average yard sale from one room and never miss it gone. My wife is still sorting through her mothers stuff, she died fourteen years ago!

RE: Retire: give it all up at 58 and RV?

It must be sad to be saddled with a job that you cannot wait to retire from!

RE: Arrogance Personified

Actually, the guy asked a good question. Are we jealous of those with a Lear jet or a huge sail boat.

A peeve of mine.

Driving on two lane roads with our classC, I make it a habit to pull over if I get five or six vehicles behind me. It is very rare, almost never happens, that drivers whom I went out of my way to help, ever toot their horn or wave. Strange that the truckers have time to blink their clearance lights when you signal that it is OK to cut back in, others, I guess are too self important to indulge in a simple courtesy!

RE: Financing Survey

The borrowers always try to justify taking out a loan. I have never heard anyone making excuses for paying cash.

RE: Financing Survey

The people with bucks that I know pay cash whenever possible. Maybe that is why they have bucks!

RE: Financing Survey

As I have not paid a penny in interest in over forty years on private purchases, I guess I do not get it.

RE: Financing Survey

I am always amused by those who claim that they can make more on investments than they pay out in interest. Something like those who claim to come out as a winner from casinos. On a one shot deal, maybe, long term, no way! Otherwise, every financial institution in the land would have collapsed long ago!

RE: lifetime of chassis batteries?

I have owned my class C for fourteen years. The starting battery was in there when I got it. I put the unit in storage Oct 1 Start it again late April. It has never failed to turn over and promptly start.

RE: What's the purpose of this black tank fitting?

It is for draining your full grey tank out onto the grass, after dark, when no one is looking.

RE: Mid Life Crisis Or Just Ready To Live?

Hi. You are fifty? To-day is my fifty first wedding anniversary. I am sorry that you are receiving so many negative replies. You sound to me that you have experience going with the flow. My advice is to give it a shot. What is the worse that can happen, you will end up again with your parents? As to your son, I can see your feelings about him being without companions of his own age, however Skype is a wonderful invention, he may not be as lonely as you think. Do remember that in four years or less, your son will either be working or in school. At that time, do you want to be seeing the country at your own pace, or still at home listening to your parents talk about the old days. So, in summation give it a shot. Nothing ventured, nothing gained!

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!
