RE: Class B Versatility

We had a 38' Mountain Aire for 11 years and my wife said when I died she was going to get a Roadtrek. She went first and the lady that does my cleaning had just gotten a 190P Roadtrek. They went out 1 time and found that her 6'3" husband didn't fit the 5'11" bed on the first night. I have been happy with it since, but it is lonely travelling alone.

RE: Real age

My '95 Roadtrek is on a '94 chassis. From the dates of each I have about the last chassis from '94 and the first '95 put on it. They are 2 weeks apart.

RE: Canadian Health Care

You have your answer butnI can giv youthe official Medicare answer. Medicare does not cover when uou are out of the US but most Medicar Supplement plans will cover you ot of the country. Only the 2 cheapest plans do not have foreugn coverage. Medicare Advantage plans have their own rules and you have to check with your insurer for their coverage. When you have an Advantage plan Medicare pays the ins. co. about $1050 per month to take care of you.

RE: Old insurance claim

I did something similar on my Mountain Aire. When it was only a year olf it slid into a hole in a CG that was full of grass and dented the one door on the L side. The estimate was $1900.00. I told the insurance agent to hold off and then he retired 4 years later. When I contacted AAA they questioned me and then did the repair 4 years later and the price was still the same.

RE: ? help on used MH

By '02 I believe Ford had cured the spark plug issue. You probably have a 110V TV and the coach batteries are either 2X6V in series or 2X12V in parallel. Either serup will give you 12V of power. Higher end MHs may have an inverter that changes 12V to 110V but that is not common in kiwer cost models. You would need more batteries to do this for very long or get a 12V TV. The generator also puts out the 110V. There is nothing wrong with your coach in that regard. Your Refrig will need the 12V even to run on propane necause of the circuit board that contrils it.

RE: Jayco class A experiences

Jayco was just taken over by either Thor or Forest river so all new management there now. Just a couple miles away is Newmar who have excellent service and reputation. The Miller family has owned Newmar and not sold out to anyone. I would go for another Newmar if I was looking for anothe big Class A.

RE: How many of you use solar?

I had solar panels for keeping the batteries up in storage on my '96 Pace Arrow and '03 Mountain Aire. To me they were useless because I stored inside. When camping we were always in a CG.

RE: First Time RV owner...need some advice please!

I started with a brand new Jamboree in 1969 and have many various RVs in that time. In my experience I found that many Cs have a water problem in the cabover section that is expensive to repair. I would consider an A and I would also say that Newmar was the first to come ot with slides in 1990 and has the most experience with slides. I had a 2003 Mountain Aire gas MH and had virtually no problems with it in 11 years. I miss it but the 6 steps up kept me out. I have 1 step in the GMC and the Roadtrek suits better for a single person. Keep looking and it is no more difficult to drive a Class A over a C. The rear is the same width on both so you need the same space to get around.

RE: man its hot !!

Keep in mind that white will be cooler than silver. If you don't believe that try touching 2 different cars in a parking lot

RE: European RV's and AC

My 19' Roadtrek has a 7500 BTU Fedders window unit that they mount in the roof rear. I was in 95F and had no problem keeping cool.

RE: sleeping quarters on a class b

My bed is left made up all the time. I use the small round table up front for doing things. In the 3 years I have owned the RT I have still nt eaten a meal in it. I bought this from my 6'3" neighbor after he took it out one time and found the bed was only 5'11". Be sure to check the bed before purchase.

RE: House batteries not charging -- Road Trek

I have studied electronics and worked on them a lot and don't carry a VOM with me. I can use a 12V lightbulb and tell from the brightness if I have good voltage or not without being concerned about polarity. It works for me.

RE: House batteries not charging -- Road Trek

It is a 2013 and that means it could have been built in the last half of '12. If the battery is original it is probably nothing more than a dead battery. Don't replace it with a car battery but get one for that use as an RV battery. If she doesn't have the manual it can be downloaded from the RT website. They have all the previous model info available to download there.

RE: Parking Class B's

My 19' Roadtrek takes the closest parking spot available. I usually take a handicapped parking spot since I have a walking problem. If I don't find a close spot I take my Travelscoot from under the bed and drive into the stores. The only problem is I can't load my basket with much. As stated a pickup takes that much space also.

RE: No turning back... need advise moving forward

I would surely rent a MH for a trip if you have no RV experience. To me a 5th. wheel would be out because I would not be able to use all the steps to the bedroom. We travelled a lot with a 38' MH and a Saturn Vue behind and never had a problem with any place due to size. DW loved the kitchen in our Mountain Aire better than our home kitchen.She always swaid when I died she would sell the Mountain Aire and get a Roadtrek. You can see what I use now. Since she died I have not cooked in a MH. There are so many good restaurants out there and an occasional bad one. I have made bad meals at home also.

RE: Short Queen Mattress

Go to a local mattress store that makes their own and get it made to size and cofort you want.

RE: Fastest RV

Those GMCs will keep up with the traffic flow. They only have a 3 speed tranny so I am much happier running at 55-60 mph.

RE: Vintage Class A Motor Homes

I am thinking of downsizing and getting down to only the Roadtrek. My '75 Eeganza II has only 58K mies on it and Holland Motorhomes and the Olds mechanic are sure that is first time around. I have't made my mind up yet but have used the Roadtrek a lot this year.

RE: What price to replace the engine water pump in a workhorse?

The reason they want to look at the motorhome is to determine how difficult it will be on your MH. Every builder uses different ways of hiding components and access varies from one maker to another.
