RE: Life expectancy of pickup campers...

No RV made is designed to be left in the weather, unoccupied, unheated, 24-7-365; period. My old 12 year old RV looked new, because both owners kept it undercover. My current rig has been garaged since it arrived. Buy the best camper you can, and treat it with care and it can last decades.

RE: Bent plate

Ya, you need to replace everything that is bent. Unfortunately that might mean replacing the entire hitch. The document on the Superglide do warn that "damage may occur" in this type of situation.

RE: Have you been to Yellowstone in the winter?

Many times, I lived nearby for years. Skied, snow-shoed, snow-mobile, etc. Lots of fun for me. If you can't handle cold and snow, and maybe more cold, don't go.

RE: How much snow is too much.

1991 we had rain, freezing rain, snow and then more freezing rain. The snow part was about 2 ft. The weight was so high RV roofs collapsed. But then so did the Alberstons Grocery, the college library, the NAPA auto parts store, car-ports, patios, etc. Several marinas sank (snow load on the boat-houses, and docks). The year before we had three feet of just snow and nothing (much) was damaged. So it's weight, not just feet.

RE: 3-step entry unit broken

The steps are all very much the same size. I've never seen any replacement parts, flamingstar fixed his with a bolt, I fixed mine with a chunk of angle-stock and my welder.

RE: New OTA Antenna

Actually been talked about a couple times already. As I noted in one of the discussions, it's still right on the roof line and subject to shading by the roof A/C, etc. There are two truisms on antennas. Height it Might and Size rules all. Higher and bigger is better then lower and smaller.

RE: Long shot, anyone used WA state as home base?

... (yes I know, cancelling voter registration does not guarantee that I won't get selected for jury duty, but it reduces it. I was the presiding juror (foreman) on a criminal trial and I don't want to be the foreman again, because the foreman is the one who has to sign their name to the verdict sheet.) Due to Washington's Motor/Voter law you will once more be both a voter and subject to jury duty in the next cycle, which I think (?) is 2016. A friend, who has never voted nor registered got a jury duty call this fall.

RE: Long shot, anyone used WA state as home base?

RE: Washington DOL and PO Boxes If you "live" in one of the small-towns that have a PO but do NOT do to-the-door mail delivery the Washington DOL will exempt you from the "only mail to street addresses" Well, they also exempt you if you are in one of their "confidential street address" programs. A friend is in one (stalker) and her Drivers License does not even list her street address on it.

RE: Watch CBC videos / shows from USA?

There are a couple web sites that you can use to go through to "de-country"ize your IP. Example so you can watch BBC shows from the US. Do a search for "TV EXPAT" and find one that works for the CBC

RE: Aluminum vs Wood construction

You will find that both methods are used by high-end builders, like your examples, and low-end builders. It comes down to workmanship, which in your examples are both excellent. Personally I would go with which ever rig suits your needs best.

RE: Question, F53 and F450, is the same

Example several model years (at least) the F53 and F450 used different air-filters for the V10 engine.

RE: Montana LLC

I know that's not the firm a lot recommend, not that I know anything about them. I do know that Nevada is one of the states that fines Nevada residents that get a Montana LLC. Since you full-time, why not move your "home" to a more friendly state like South Dakota or Texas?

RE: Construction methods?

It really comes down to workmanship. Name a construction method, it's probably used by both "low" and "high" end builders. But as far as dual-pane vrs single. I've had both, I will never go back to single

RE: Licensing questions

Consider this: Driving your RV in any state is clearly personal use Driving your truck and livestock trailer across state lines may be business use. Clearly if you were driving to say a "Horse Show", it might be personal. But if you were going to buy or sell livestock???? Isn't the very definition of interstate commerce crossing a state line for commercial purposes?

RE: TV antenna

The only real difference in antennas is some of the "old" TV antennas don't work on the UHF channels (old analog 14 on up), while some of the "new" digital TV antennas don't work on the VHF channels (old analog 2 to 13). While today most "digital" channels actually broadcast on UHF, although some still (or again) broadcast on VHF. So the best antenna is one that gets both VHF and UHF

RE: Privately Owned Parks that Just Do Not Want Your Business

Not too surprising, reviews are either loved it or hated it link

RE: Winter RV camping

People manage in Montana and North Dakota, wetter-washington temps are nothing compared to those. It all depends on how much you want to do, really. Since cold seldom lasts more then a few days I might just not worry. If temps go low enough the heated hose freezes up, take it off, leave the spigot at dribble and live off your tanks. Odds are temps will go up in just a couple days. There are "outlier" periods, like 1990 when the lows hit zero and the highs were like 20. But that's like every 30 years.

RE: Using propane heater exhaust as a outside heat source?

Just about every RV has the same basic model of furnace. Tech wise these furnaces are about as efficient as home propane furnaces of 30 years ago. RV furnaces haven't really changed much since the first blower-type propane furnaces were installed in an RV. I suspect the companies really don't see enough of a demand for them to try and get RV furnaces as nearly as efficient as home ones. The same could be said for water-heaters
