RE: Dealer wants to buy out my lease?

He's not sending you the letter out of the goodness of his heart in order to do you a favor. The dealer is doing his own wallet a favor, and not yours. Used cars/trucks are often more of a profit margin for the dealer than new ones. He would gain a newer used truck to put on his lot and sell at a profit. You would have the same payment, but for a longer time, thus guaranteeing the dealer a revenue stream for a longer period of time. Dealer wallet wins = 2 Your wallet wins = 0 Pretty straightforward.

RE: how to decide on buying a trailer - the dream vs reality

Either way, buy used. Let someone else take tha big first year hit instead of you.

RE: Florida beaches

Wow, the beaches of Oregon and Washington don't seem to have any aversion to our 4-legged friends. Surprised to learn this. Learn something new every day. Thanks, People just get tired of getting dog s*£# between their toes. Most beach communities have at least one dog beach. Inquire when you get there.

RE: Beware of older motorhomes with low mileage!

Is there an auto salvage place around? They can be a good source for discontinued or hard to find parts. Call them and give them the year/model of the vehicle you need. They can probably tell you if the have one on the lot. Bring your own tools becaus you will probably have to remove the part yourself. Good luck

RE: Need help finding place in Florida for the winter

In the Keys the state parks are, by far, the most economical. If they are filled, as they often are, here is where we go. It's in Marathon which is a very convenient location. Knights Key. http://knightskeyrvresortandmarina.com/ Enjoy your trip. I went to high school in Key West many, many years ago.

RE: winnebago 2013 Via maintence

Go to your local Mercedes dealer. Bring your big checkbook. They will do all the required maintenance plus some.

RE: Poor attitude at top rated Good Sam Park, Phoenix,AZ

Easy. Vote with your wallet. Go elsewhere to spend your money.

RE: Camper Repairs

Propane leak. Fill a spray bottle with soapy water. Start to the tank and spray all jonts with the soap. Look for bubbles when you do so. There is your leak.

1) who's checking on closed campgrounds, anyway? 2). Worse case they run you off. Have a ball.

RE: Downshifting fix for hills

It doesn't have to be fixed becaus it's not broken. The section of the computer that controls the shifting of the transmission, knows what it's doing. Break out your Ford owners manual and read up on how your transmission works. These engines are just fine with high rpm's. They are designed that way. If your speed drops below, as I recall, 45mpg, the cruise control will automatically disconnect itself. Read up on how to downshift if going downhill. You just tap your brake peddle and the tranny will downshift as soon as it's safe to do so. Enjoy your travels.

RE: Bubbling on my TT roof.

The creases are not normal. If it's still under warranty, I would sure take it back and let the dealer try to figure out the cause and repair it. If it was not under warranty, I would take 6" wide EternaBond and cover those seams. Enjoy your travels Ed

RE: oil change on a class C rv with ford V10 engine

I change my own oil at home. I use exclusively Mobile One Extended Performance and a Mobile One filter. Extended performance I change the oil every 7,500 miles. That way I can change it before I leave for a trip and not have to worry about it until I get home again. Expensive up front, but super convenient plus I'm running a really good oil. This works for me but might not for others. Now if you rig is still under warranty, you will want to stick carefully with the manufactures requirements. I've been out of warranty for many years. Enjoy your travels.

RE: Does a 22 foot B+ fit in a regular parking spot?

The lines on a parking space vary from 18 to 20 feet depending if the space is angled or not. A 22' long vehicle can't completely fit into a 18-20' space. However. We drive a 24' Class C and it's quite easy to find a space on the outside perimeter of most lots. Like the other answer about the big dually, we do partially encroach onto another space. Go for it.

RE: Putting the kids on the floor???

When we camped with our three daughters, we sleep inside and they slept in a tent. Thought it was a great adventure. So did we. ;-) Enjoy your travels.

RE: Brand new 2014. What % discount?

Do you wonder why this unit had been sitting around for two years? What's wrong with it? Poor quality? Poor floodplan?

RE: to buy or not to buy

With option one, by the time the dealer spins all the numbers this way and that, you won't have a clue as to what you're really paying for your new RV. Other than way too much. The dealer version of the of con mans shell game, if you will. I'd go with option two. That way it will be a whole lot clearer just what's going on.
