RE: Waze app for navigation?

I use Waze both in my Jeep and in or Motorhome. I generally know where I'm going, I leave the navigation to my wife. But Waze keeps gives me heads up to what's directly a head. Knowing there is a car, cop or object in the road is a great asset. My wife does any reporting while we drive as she's running Waze as well. You can reroute with Waze, so play around with it and understand the features.

RE: Using a drill to lift your popup

You need a high torque cordless drill with at least 400 pounds of torque, it should have a high & low setting. Use the low speed (high torque) mode when lifting or lowering. The DeWalt, Hitahci and Craftsman 18 to 19.2 volt drills seem to be very popular. I used one years ago with my pop up and made my own Socket Gennie from an old spark plug socket.

RE: Alfa Toyhouse - Questions For Current/Previous Owners

Here is a site that shows some of the models and weights, that might help you in considering if your truck can handle it. Toyhouse 5er Info As I recall these units were very heavy. I can't recall a bunch of negative comments over the years, but I think if you are going to tow one you'll need an MDT. If you hit up the Advanced Search, use "Toyhouse" and then change Date Posted to "Archive - Over 1 year ago" then have it filter to Toy Hauler forum only you'll find a bunch of older posts, within the past year only 1 post.

RE: Jay Flight vs. Coleman (Dutchmen): which is better?

Few things to share. The Coleman name means nothing, it's just licensed for the purpose of name recognition. For years it was under the Fleetwood brand, then picked up by Dutchmen. Dutchmen is now owned by Thor. My challenge to you is to go to both company websites. Now look up the warranty for each. How easy is it to find? I know that Jayco's is very easy. I couldn't find the warranty for Coleman. Though it's not the end all, it does make you question why. Most of all as already stayed buy based on the Floorplan you like and the dealer that gives you the best service.

RE: Curved Step Covers

Usually the 1st step takes most of the abuse. Wiping feet, turning/spinning. If you will clean and rotate they last longer and look better.

RE: Best route I-5 to Depoe Bay

I absolutely can not recommend Hwy 20 unless its middle of the day and low traffic. I did it with our 35' motorhome no toad, at night in the rain. Worst drive of my entire life. Hwy 126 from Eugene is pretty good, but the road is not in great shape in parts, once you get to Mapleton, then it gets some waves in the road since its on very soft ground, some of it gets pretty wild. Very doable just not great. Hwy 38 from Drain over to Reedsport would be my choice, much better road the whole way and easy drive.

RE: Klamath Falls and Springfield, OR

Brooks I grew up in Eugene, right next to Springfield. That area is still one of my favorite areas you've got the Cascades to one side, the Oregon Coast to the other and great sites south... up north you have Portland... well 3 out of 4 isn't bad LOL. But seriously it's nice around Portland too. As far as staying in Eugene-Springfield. I've only stayed at one. That's the Eugene Kamping World which used to be a KOA - its a bit north but not far at all and just off of I-5. It's not amazing but decent and number of full time rigs along the sides that we say during our couple of stays. You also have Premier RV Resorts on the other side of I-5 both of these are in Coburg. Premier is pretty large with amenities, but I've never stayed there. Deerwood RV Park is south of Springfield. From the photos it looks a bit nicer, and without the heavier traffic you'll find from the two up north along I-5. Bit further out is Dexter Shores RV Park never been there but I have been up on the lake. Bit more of a drive but will give you better views and a slower pace of life. Good luck.

RE: Winnebago Sightseer 35J vs. Forest River Georgetown 350DS

I can't comment about the FR. But Having owned a 35J since 2007 I'm still happy with it. Really have had no issues with the Ford or the Winnebago side. Fridge died but that's a Norcold issue. It's held up very well camping with us and our two kids and two dogs.

RE: Desert Fox 5th wheels....in the flesh.

Northwoods has always built a few prototypes, a lot never make it into production. Years back they had a Desert Fox 5er that was large (38-5U?), besides a 32 ft unit. The 38-5U was a production 5er, close friends and camping buddies of ours had one. Thing was a beast, built like a brick outhouse, but solid. But the interior was dated even back in 2005 - still using the light blue and tulip lamp shades. The ceased production when the recession hit and the pulled back on a lot of their units that were more expensive so they could weather the storm - seems they were smart about that now.

RE: Desert Fox 5th wheels....in the flesh.

Looks good, but wow not much room once that couch extends. I don't personally care for the island kitchen. Not sure about the price that must be the DDWP (dealers dream wish price)

RE: Can't log off!

The logout link worked fine on my end. But this topic did take me back to The Hotel California... Last thing I remember, I was Running for the door I had to find the passage back to the place I was before 'Relax' said the night man, 'We are programmed to receive. You can check out any time you like, But you just can never leave!'

RE: Living full-time in toy hauler considerations

And this was about the time that Thor Ind. bought them. They don't mass produce these. They basically make them when you order them. Thanks for the info I've re-added them to The Complete List of Toy Haulers again.

RE: Living full-time in toy hauler considerations

Hoping to look at the DRV fullhouse Are they back in production? I have a tough time figuring out if they are actually making them or not. For a while there was nothing on their website, but now I see they have their own page.

RE: Bringing teenagers...leave tech at home or no?

I try to talk to my kids about disconnecting, created it as a challenge for them. But we camp at different places for different reasons. Sometimes we take along the xbox or wii and let them chill inside and do their thing. Not everybody has to enjoy the same thing, at least they are doing something together. When it comes to phones, as long as they are interacting and don't have their head constantly facing the phone I don't fight it. One night when I decided to pick the fight my youngest got very upset. Turned out he'd been looking up various bits about the lake we were at, and reading about wild life. My bad. We also tend to camp where we don't have hookup's or wifi, since I control the power it really limits how much time they are on their phone, batteries don't last forever ;) My only parting though is to make memories not to pick fights. Happy Camping!

RE: Polaris Slingshot

Get a Smart - they're a shorter car. Humm no comparison... I'd go with the Slingshot every day of the week and twice on Sunday. https://s.yimg.com/lo/api/res/1.2/cQ2Dt2eucn0RDAYMiASuUQ--/YXBwaWQ9bWFnYXppbmVzO3c9ODAw/https://s.yimg.com/os/publish-images/autos/2015-01-05/08608980-94ea-11e4-ad65-c916fbfebf38_polaris-slingshot-21.jpg width=640 http://mit.zenfs.com/209/2011/09/yahoo_garay_car1.jpg width=640

RE: Polaris Slingshot

What's ground clearance like? Are you going to bottom out at the top? Would you completely lose your traction?

RE: Average fuel mileage on a 35' with the V10??

If you own a Wrangler you already understand poor MPG and bad aerodynamics like I do. :) We've had our 2007 Winnebago Sightseer 35J since 2007, I love it. My MPG can really vary since I live in an area with high winds. My low MPG towing our 4 ATVs and trailer would run about 6, highs were 10 if I had tail winds. Over the years my average towing/not towing, mountains/flat lands all combined is 7.9. Most of that was towing in the mountains. Now that the ATVs are gone and I don't tow with a full tank of water and an extra 40 gallons of fuel we're seeing average of 8.7 but I have yet to setup the Wrangler as a toad.
