RE: Does anyone make a lower profile 5'er?

Only low profiles I have seen are the old style where you had to crawl into the sleeping area on your knees. I think they only make mid and full profile in regular size fivers now ?? Except for the Scamp, I think you are correct. We had one that was about 10ft-6. But there was only about 30 inches above the bed. A number of companies used to make rigs like that. But today I think it's just Scamp.

RE: Garmin 760LMT......Any opinions?

We've had one for about a year. It works well, but has been discontinued .... Garmin still lists it as a current model But I agree with you about the features

RE: 35,000 lb +, GVW for pick ups

First a CDL is a commercial license, not a RV license, the additional restrictions such as drug testing, health checks, etc, that would not be welcome (or needed) in RVs Now a number of states, and my perception is the number is slowly growing, do have a non-commercial license that is required for RVs over 26,000 lbs. The testing for this license is more intense then for a "car", but doesn't carry call the restrictions a CDL does. My belief is that this "large RV" license, with required testing (and training?) could be a good thing.

RE: Crossing the US/Canada Border - tight driving?

I actually never use the Peach Arch crossing, the truck crossing has a "private" lane, all the other crossings have been easy.

RE: Are we too long to enter Canada?

You will find that the Canadian border guards are much better mannered than ours. I've yet to see a US border guard that wasn't cranky and feeling like they are doing you a favor to let you come home. Back in the "working years" I crossed very often, sometime several times a month, to the point where some of the guards (both sides) knew me on sight. Never had problems with those guys, it was the "summer hires" (both sides) that sometime caused excitement.

RE: Are we too long to enter Canada?

Something this important I would contact the entry point and talk with the folks there. You probably will get a bunch of different information here. .. ...and if you are really lucky, some of it might even be accurate.

RE: Radial tires travel trailer

I've been running Carlisle Radial Trail's for awhile now with no issues. While I keep the speed down, I really like the fact they are rated for 87mph

RE: Difference in honda generators Big store vs small dealer?

Pricing out Honda 2000's. Overall big box store $200 less than Honda dealer. Any reason? Honda's part numbers from their on line site has 3 different part numbers for their 2000I. EU2000iT1A1, EU2000I1A1, EU2000IKN, EU2000IKC Is there any difference from one or the other? The only differences I know (US) are the colors & companion options. Last time I really dug into it the safety folk in Canada would not allow generators sold up there to have the banana-jacks or circuit to support hooking the generators together, and they had different part numbers.

RE: Difference in honda generators Big store vs small dealer?

Honda does not allow on-line dealers to advertise below list price. That doesn't mean there aren't deals out there Mayberry Alamia Both typically offer prices well below list and ship for free.

RE: Another new OTA antenna

I would expect that to not work as well as the ol "crank-up". Height above the rig matters. That it can be "aimed" is good though.

RE: Glad we didn't quit over high gas prices.

I'm sure the price of gas will hit $4 or more soon enough. Enjoy it while it lasts. Correct, there is an expert in oil issues I try to read as often as he publishes. Oil prices dropped because the (former) Saudi Oil-Minister and the Foreign Minister convinced the Saudi government that cheap oil was in their best interest. So they stopped limiting production, a move that was quickly followed by several other oil producers that have cheap production costs. They did this for several reasons: slow US/Canadian production of expensive oil-shale/tar-sands/fracking, hurt ISIS/ISIL economy, hurt the Russian economy, hurt the Iranian economy, etc That Oil-Minister is now the Energy Minister, ie a promotion. Low costs will continue until the Saudi government thinks higher prices are in their best interests. The current "spike" is caused more by speculators then demand or supply, he expects prices to decline as the summer progresses as things return to "normal"

RE: Students Blamed for Trashed Camp

I can tell you there is one difference between the "kids" of today and those of yesterday The Internet. The stupid stunts some kids pull today gets massive publicity. The stupid stunts some kid (and sometimes us) pulled in the past didn't usually. I've worked with massively motivated kids from Millennials, X-Gen and Boomers and there was little real difference Well, other then Millennials sometimes posted their stupid stunts and preserved the evidence of being young and stupid.

RE: What do all of the letters and numbers mean? Model Numbers

Sometimes the number means "length" Sometimes the number means "square foot" Even that is not consistent, Northwoods old 26-5C was longer then their 27-5L

RE: 2014 E450 trans fluid change manual error

The E40D and 4R100 are all pre 2005 trannies. They can be fully drained/serviced cold. The 2005+ 5 speed trannies, can not. A hot flush machine must be used to exchange all fluid. Or why I hire it done

RE: Prince Albert Park

I can tell you that my in-laws, with lake front homes at Murry Point (south of NP) have taken in their boats & floats and winterized their cabins by then. The ones with four-season homes aren't spending much time there, until the snow falls.

RE: GPS Navigation

Can you load POI files to it, if so buy this one to it. Be advised it tells you when you are close to a low clearance, not that it's on your road or the one you are about to pass over. We had it in our Garmin for years and it does work We just got a Garmin RV760 and in initial trials are very happy with it. link
