RE: RV Vacation Rental Trade for Transporting Used RV?

While on paper it might looks like a good idea, there is way too much that can go wrong. What you are proposing is NOTHING like VRBO. Firstly, if you're renting a vacation home through VRBO, the person you are renting to more than likely can not disappear with your home. You'll have absolutely no control over what route they are going to take to get to your destination, and really very little recourse if they don't even make it there. You'll go through quite a headache if you're expecting someone to drop off your RV in Texas and find out, if you ever find out, that they're all the way up in Maine. Just because someone may have a clean driving record and background check does not mean that they are a good driver, or even capable of handling an RV. You want to make sure that you're doing this with someone who is experienced with being using an RV. Ok. How will you verify this? Sure, I can tell you I've owned my own RV for years, but you have no way of verifying this to be fact. If this is a "free" transaction, what motivation is there for the person to take care of your equipment? I don't think anyone out there is going to be willing to hand over private individual a $2000 security deposit, for example. Would you be at ease with $500? I certainly wouldn't. If something were to go seriously wrong, how would you go about rectifying it? Since all these rentals are "free", would you be able to afford to hire a good lawyer to go after someone like the rental RV places could, considering that they are a business which makes an income and probably have lawyers on their payroll? You can go through each and every user on this site and I'll bet you wouldn't find more than 5 people who would be willing to let FAMILY use their RV (for free or not), let alone handing it over to a stranger in exchange for them getting it to any given location. If you honestly think that this is something that would work, well best of luck to you. There may be a ton of people who would be willing to take someone up on the offer of a free rental, I just don't see too many people wanting to offer up their RV for this type of thing, regardless of the need to get it moved.

RE: Canadian Using Wind Phone

I switched to Wind from Rodgers. I'm paying the same price as with Rodgers but getting wide open unlimited US. I'm a happy camper. :) Rogers for $5/day? That's absolutely insane. Should look into a US Tracfone.

RE: Crazy Accident

Use both lanes until the merge point. It's pretty simple... the "merge point" is where the traffic "merges", hence why it's called the merge point. Not 2-3-4 miles before. If both lanes are use to that point, there is no speeding past anyone.

RE: Opinion Requested

Each has their pros and cons. Personally, I'd take the Rexhall. Though DW would take the Kountry Star because it has the washer/dryer already. Rexhall has Goodyear tires that I won't trust anymore. Kountry Star is a Workhorse chassis that would be a last resort in my eyes due to how they handled their brake recall. Depending on where you're planning on travelling, you might really like how much easier the diesel pulls up hills. It's all about your preferences, really.

RE: Best time of year for the Florida Keys?

We've always been there for Easter, thus March/April. Just awesome!

RE: Roam Mobility now in Mexico

wow... just looked at their site. Least expensive plan = $25 for 7 days? Not a decent price to me...

RE: Roam Mobility now in Mexico

Roam has a horrible reputation. They have almost no coverage in Western Canada. Moisheh I didn't think it worked at all in Canada.

RE: Happy story results in question for Dr. Doug

My little guy's chip was last found in the chest area. That was a few years ago and was put in a little under 8 years ago.

RE: RV parks do not honor advertised rate when booking?

I've had this happen in Myrtle Beach (Pirateland) after having made my reservation the year prior. However, we're only talking a couple of $/night here. An increase of $35/night? What on earth could they have done to their campground to justify a $35 increase per night over the previous year's rates?

RE: clooged sink

If he were to fill up the sink and then pull the dump value, would that reveal whether this is indeed a venting issue (providing he has someone to see how well or poorly the sink drained with the dump valve pulled)?

Jolly Roger Travel Park in Marathon. Waterfront sites have their own boat slip.

RE: dolly vs flat

Used both and much prefer 4 down. I traded to the HHR for that reason.

RE: pull-forward sites?

I don't spend much time looking out the front window when parked, and I'm much more comfortable backing into a site upon arrival as opposed to backing out onto the access road while leaving.

RE: Buying gas

I've used the postal code #'s with two 0's up and down the eastern seaboard for years and have never encountered one that didn't like it.

RE: Put MH on boards or not for winter

Idling the engine will do more harm than good. Shut it down and leave it alone if you're not going to drive it as exercise. The generator needs it because the gas can gum up the carb and there are parts that moisture can rust out if it sits.

RE: New RV Park Reviews website is now online

Played around for a few. Like it! Good job!

RE: Florida Keys over holidays - Tow car or Not

car carriers bringing cars from up north I'm not familiar with that process. What's the advantage or reason for doing it like that? I believe a lot of the elderly use this service. Instead of doing the long drive down south, they hire a company to bring the car down and they spend only a couple of hours on a flight instead.

RE: For Canadian RV'ers crossing U.S. border

Yeah, no border enforcement with Mexico... I wonder how that would go.... About as well as it go on our northern border. Yeah, the Canadian cartels sending the US lots of drugs, I bet. They'll have a field day!

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

As a Canadian who travels to the US three to four times a year I find that the US border officials are professional and friendly. Coming back to Canada I find the Canadian officials are abrupt and borderline rude. I cross once or twice a month, more during camping season, and I've never had that kind of experience.

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

One of my Mexican buddies who is a dually, Mexican and Canadian, when he and his wife enter the U.S., they use their Canadian passports, when entering Canada, they use their Mexican passports. He shouldn't do that. If you have citizenship in a country, you are to use that country's passport to enter. Says who? There is absolutely nothing that says you have to.
