RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

Love this TR. Thank you for posting it. Brings back a lot of memories of the area with our kids. We are thinking of going again(8th time) next year. Kids will be 20 and 24 then. Of course it will depend on there internships, maybe we could fly them out. Love your pics and the writeup.

RE: Pilot/Flying J reserve a spot

WOW!! I never thought this thread would take off like this. Obviously there a few different types of RVers on this forum and it's not a one size fits all approach..... I fall into the I'm in my mid 30s with a couple young kids and I get 4 weeks vacation a year and when I'm going some place I have to GO! No time to drive 150 miles a day and smell every rose along the way like many of the retired people on here seem to do. I sleep in any convenient place I can find along a highway for a few hours and get up and finish my drive. It's not uncommon for me to drive from Ohio to Florida in a day. I've never felt unsafe in a truck stop and my wife feels the same way. We aren't wandering the lots at 4am, we park go back to the camper and sleep.... That's it. I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea, and yes some truckers are pretty nasty, but I work in the transportation industry for one of the largest companies in the US and the vast majority are just guys trying to make a living. I simply thought it was kinda cool I could reserve a spot so I'm not in and out of every truck stop and rest area for 50 miles looking for a place to sleep. You nailed it. We have been RVing for 23 years just like this. NEVER an issue. still working also.

RE: Pilot/Flying J reserve a spot

I think its a great idea. My wife begs to stay the night in a truck stop because she likes background noise to sleep. Kids also. I usually just grab a rest area, but they like truck stops better. Like you I sometimes drive late also. I will have to look at these and check them out. Private business does it better again.

RE: What Is a realistic discount to expect off MSRP?

Having owned 4 mh's, 2 truck campers, and 1 5th wheel over the last 23 years I don't need to go over much. I have always owned a MH and a truck camper at the same time. Both kids are in college now so I sold the 45' DP and bought a 37' 5th wheel. Kept the TC, but now we are considering selling or trading that for a Host. The 2 dealers I spoke with will not go below 7% off MSRP. Now I'm looking at the Eagle cap 1200.

RE: Towing with full fresh water tank?

Most of the roads in Alaska and on the way there are just fine. I don't like to say this to much because more people will start going. Always travel with full water tank. Always.

RE: What Is a realistic discount to expect off MSRP?

I believe Host charges $650 for factory pick up. I can't imagine why.

RE: What Is a realistic discount to expect off MSRP?

I have seen $3500 markup just for delivery and $995 for dealer prep.

RE: TV or tablet in your camper?

23" LCD TV, but I rarely use it. When I do use it, it's to watch a BluRay movie This is the only reason we have a TV

RE: What Is a realistic discount to expect off MSRP?

I'm looking at Host campers right now and the awesome internet pricing I'm seeing is a whole 6% off MSRP. Give me a break.

RE: Border Crossing Special Watch

Unlike most I have taken firearms into Canada on 2 different occasions. I had the forms filled out ahead of time. Not that big of a deal. Both times were easy and quick. The second time we spent more time talking about the poultry products in the coach than anything else. Both times they checked the numbers to see if they matched the paperwork. That was it. A few years ago we were crossing(No firearms at all) and the woman was quite rude and wanted to search my coach without me being in there. I said no way. After a 10 minute discussion her boss came out and told me to take the coach and go. She had me park where I was blocking lanes.(40 ft coach and toad) Hopefully that was a 1 shot deal. We haven't been back since. It really upset my wife.

RE: Will Host be at Hershey RV show

Did you check any of the Websites About The 2016 Hershey Show? Yes, I did. Nothing there, I was hoping someone would know.

RE: So My Neighbor Shot a BB At My Camper...

I'd put Sikaflex in it, and call it good. He's got enough to worry about as a 92 year old. Good on him that he's even on planet earth still. I'm hoping I can get to 92. This is what I would do. Do you really want to start a fight with your neighbor. Let alone a 92 year old one. Would it really feel good to win a fight with a 92 year old. What if it was your dad? What would you want his neighbor to do. It looks like an easy fix, from what you said. Good luck with whatever you do.

RE: Fleetwood Bounder engine troubles - need advice please

I lost a tranny in FL once, 454 and 4L80E tranny I think. I lost the engine in that one also. Put in a new long block in my back yard. Might as well go over the tranny at this point.

RE: Better TC hauler- F350 or F450??

It is very easy to order a new 3500 RAM 4x4 cummins that can carry 5k plus pounds and still be under the 14K GVW with 2 people in the cab. It is a matter of ordering the right truck. Many people are carrying triple slide TC on 3500 trucks. Some are over there GVW and some are not. Everybody is different. It can and is being done.
