RE: Class C Coachmen Leprachaun F350 vs. V10

There's a difference between the E/f350 and what engine is installed. ..... eg Today's F series has a 3-valve engine that will not fit in the E series The F series produces more power

RE: Washington State parks over crowding

... I'd rather drive back and forth through Deception Pass all day long than around Seattle on 405 just once. Maybe more folks have also been going to/from Port Townsend to avoid Seattle? ... I dono about Seattle, we live on the west side of the sound and take that ferry any time we are north bound. Avoids the entire Edmonds/Everett/SmokeyPoint mess Like we will heading for Langley over the long weekend in Sept

RE: Washington State parks over crowding

... US-2 should be four lanes all the way, and likely six lanes from Sultan to I-5 ... About 15 years back there was an effort by the Montana and ND congress-types to make US-2 four lanes from Duluth to Spokane. Obviously it didn't make it.

RE: Arctic Fox 27-5L

First what year? is it new or used? If new, I would also touch bases with Thunder RV in LaGrande OR Second (if used) you know there are three floor-plans and lengths that vary over the model years. The current 27-5L is actually over 30 ft and has both slides on the driver side. From 2012 to about 2000 the 27-5L was about 29 ft long with the main slide on the drivers and the bedroom slide on the passenger. Older then that there was only one slide it the rig was 28 or 29 ft.

RE: New Arctic fox

Congrats...You'll be happy; 99% sure...If you haven't already, sign up for the northwoods forum to see what their weak points are. Very few problems, but there are some things to check. I think the forum gets $10.00 a year. While no longer a member (many reasons) lots of info for first time NW buyer. The later sounds familiar to me....

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

Well, price club was founded in 1975 and Costco in 1976. It's possible. http://i.imgur.com/DzdLoeBl.jpg I did mention the Costco return policy a couple of pages back. CostCo's own history says it was started in 1983 (first location in the south down-town area of Seattle), ie where I had to go when they first opened. While I've never heard the "vendors list" story, I've heard from one of the founders own mouth that he started at Price Club

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

Memberships are not cheap and each year have gone up considerably.. (COSTCO MEMBERSHIP) Here it is 500 Mexican Pesos $27.78 and yes the card works fine in the USA, Vancouver and Bangkok, and at the gas pumps up there. I've been a CostCo member since they opened the first location. The saving on my first answering machine paid for one year's membership The savings on a set of tires paid for two years membership. Then their competitors starting paying attention to Costco's prices and dropped their prices closer to Costco's. Today I have the Citi branded Costco charge card, the 4% rebate on my gas alone paid this years membership. The rebate on the rest of my Costco purchases is pure profit in my pocket.... ...and the stuff I buy is still cheaper at Costco then anywhere else.

MotoMover by New Horizons But expect to pay $200,000 for a well equipped unit.

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

All manufacturers build in a certain amount of extra cost to their products to cover potential warranty and recall cost they could incur. Harbor Freight leaves that out of the picture to get the cost down, but if you wish they have full replacement coverage available. I just checked $79 for one year or $129 for two years over the counter exchange coverage at any store. Still a heckuva bargain. One of my friends is a HF store manager, for anything with a gas engine, she recommends buying the one or two year policy, keeping the paperwork and exchanging the unit just before it expires, even if it's working just fine.

RE: Arctic Fox frame manufacture

Hi all, Does Northwoods Arctic Fox build their own frame or by from another company? The ONLY Fox's not built on a Northwood frame where those built at their (now defunct) east-coast factory over a decade ago. Those are (old) Lippert frames, built to Northwood specs

RE: Harbor Freight/Honda smackdown....

What about the noise level? Not a clue but it's on HF's website I'm sure. Excuse me, 57 Db at 27 feet HF spec is 57 dB @ 27 ft Honda's is 57 dB @ 9 ft If you scale (assuming spherical spreading) the Honda from 9 ft to 27 ft the Honda measures 47.5 dB This is the problem with comparing specs, when you have no idea what they actually mean. Now spherical spreading doesn't work in a real-world case like this, but the Honda is still going to be (roughly) 10 dB quieter. Yes I do know what I'm talking about I worked in acoustics for over 30 years.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Beds

Here's a video on the Chevy commercial where the maker of the video explains why he feels the commercial was deceptive. More some since the reports I've seen GM is going the aluminum beds also.

RE: Looks like an old name in RVs might be coming back

From the article, this is a business that bought the rights to the name. I'd be skeptical that they plan to build the quality the old ones were made to. We've seen quality brand after quality brand fold the last few years, because people aren't willing to pay the costs to buy quality.

I lived there for many years, there are so many things. What interests do you have?

RE: 5th Wheel Frames

About three years ago Lippert made big deal about how now all their frame welders were certified and all welds were inspected. Of course that implies before, they weren't. Since that time the number of complaints about new rigs having frame failures has seriously decreased.

RE: What happened?

I can tell you a lot of what has happened: M-TV then FACEBOOK Many of the younger people really don't like a forum interface. Having been raise on the supershort types like messages, so many do not have an attention span that can manage following a thread with many entries that are longer than 140 characters. .... Matt Nailed it Changing fashion. I've been at the Internet thing longer them most of you, I was a member of GoodSam's "first" real forum, which was done by e-mail. "Back in the Day", the fashion was e-mail group, Newsgroups (remember them?) and IRC "rooms". I remember a couple IRC RV "rooms", and then there are the ol' newsgroups (which are still around, alt.rv and rec.outdoors.rv-travel). Then web-based forums took over (like this group) Today it's "social media" and "apps" I can tell you that some of the RV Facebook groups see more posts in a day then this group see's in a week, maybe a month. I just saw one on dogs that must be 60 posts this afternoon. Then there is the whole RV-PJs thing... For those that think it was the moderators or nasty attitudes, check out the RV groups on Facebook, makes this place look like a open and friendly group Internet fashions change, in a few years Facebook will be the new AOL or Yahoo.

I've been laughing at the over reactions to the PJs by some.
