RE: meds

I got my Celebrex from Canada Drug for years. I paid $180 for 90 tablets from Pfizer in Australia. Local prices was close to $300. through my Part D. coverage. They came from a pharmacy in Barbados. At that time the insurance would not cover me here. Now that there is a generic I get that for $25.00 for 90 tablets. They were located in one of the central provinces.

RE: used rv mileage

One of your first things to check is to take you VIN from your ram1500 to see what the actual towing capacity really is. Depending on how is set up it may not tow much more than a pop-up or possibly a larger TT. Knowledge is power and it all depends on your cooling system, axle ratio, tires, etc.

RE: Travato or Roadtrek

I have a 190V that I bought from my 6'3" neighbor. The crossways bed is only 5'11" and after he tried it one night he put it up for sale. Being 5'9" I fit.

RE: How difficult is 27' motorhome to drive in city traffic?

WORKHORSE Chassis in a '02 could have had the 8.1L GM. Drive it before putting it out based on only some groups theory on wheelbase length. Weight distribution makes a big difference. I had a '03 Workhorse chassis on my 38' Mountain Aire and loved it in all ways. I got to take a detour off I-75 with the 38' MH and car for a total of 57' while ending up going through downtown Dayton at 5:00 PM. It was doable. I used to drive tour buses 45' to Chicago, D.C., etc. andnever had a problem. You just can't go faster than the traffic.

RE: My over 13' rv went under a 13' clearance bridge

Don't believe the signs on Lower Level Wacker Dr.in Chicago (AKA Green light city). At one time the Greyhound buses used that for their terminal in the Loop. They have repaved since and they state clearance of 11'2" I think. If you get stuck with a load vehicle that is only 11' you will get a ticket.

RE: Medicare rates

I live in Michigan and am only licensed in Mich. so therefore I am only concerned with MI. Detroit area is almost double the price of West Mich. where I live. Companies will vary on their pricing with many following county lines. I was just quoting the title of the article and I also agree it was slightly mis-titled but did read the entire story, not just the first line.

RE: Washington DC

Metro subway is the only way to go. Parking anyplace within a several miles of the National Mall is impossible. You can literally drive around all day looking for a parking spot and never find one. Most folks who go to DC more than once google the DC Metro map, and pick a station on the edge of the system along their intended route, then ride the rails. from there. Sometimes the second station in has better parking available. Metro goes within a block or so of every place you could possibly want to go. Whatever you do, do NOT ever attempt to drive a large vehicle/camper/bus into that area. You will NEVER get back out again. I routinely took 45' tour buses to D.C. and never had a problem. I did get a parking ticket on Flag Day for having 15' not in the parking space. I thought 2/3 was a good enough attempt.

Hawaii 2. Vermont 3. Maine 4. New Mexico 5. Idaho 6. Oregon 7. S. Dakota 8. Iowa 9. Montana 10.N. Dakota The article stated many states are double these states with Florida being highest

RE: Finding places to stop along the way (during the day)

With a 38' motorhome and hitch+toad I was 57' We never missed seeing something we were interested in. Get off the Interstates to see the most. We came from Edmonton, AB to Detroit with no freeways (until we had to cross Big Mac) and it was very interesting.

RE: Spun tires getting up boat ramp

What about a wench for the bumper? I know there are portable ones. I don't know how a wench sitting on your bumper would help unless she was very heavy. A winch would help a little more if there is something to attach the other end to close enough to help.

RE: Spun tires getting up boat ramp

I had this experience with a friend in Peterboro, Ontario. His boat was a 21' pulling with a Lincoln and the ramp was very steep. I had a tow strap in my car and hooked to his front bumper. It didn't take much to get it going with a little boost from dry pavement. This was back in the early 70s.

RE: Getting rid of Road Trip grill - replace with Weber Q?

I bought a Q220 for the MH. It never made it to the MH and has been on my rear deck since I got it. It is very stingy with fuel. We use it 4-5 tomes per week and get over a year off of the 10# tank. We did get the hose rather than the 1# disposable tanks. With the upgrade you get the built in sparker that works great, side fold in tables and a thermometer in the cover. Service is great also.

RE: Air into tires while away

She has a DP so she just has to find the connection on her MH and buy some air hose. There is no Camping World near there.

RE: Downsized and Regretted it?

I went from a 38' Mountain Aire to a 20 year old Roadtrek 19' after my wife died. 19 is half of 38 but that has no relationship to what they hold. I have containers stacked in my closet with the extras. I like the 17.5 mpg of the Roadtrek but miss the luxuries. That was why I bought the GMC.

RE: When do you know to get out?

I really enjoy Peterborough. I remember my 3 ye old Class C going through a red light on Hwy 28 because I had no brakes. We sat in a Church parking lot while they cooled off. A good thing about traveling in a MH is you have clean underwear handy. I have also gone through the lift lock when I had boats. I have my own experiences with older MHs as you can see from my signature. I bought the GMC for $10K expecting to put another $10K into repairs. I am right on track as I go to pick it up today. Enjoy the good times.

RE: Challenges replacing the wallpaper

Wallpaper paste is water based so there are no fumes.

RE: Acrophobia

If you are talking about Hwy 17 & Lake Superior it has changed. I took that trip in June and found the road to be great but no where near the water or views. I had always heard what great scenery there was there. I was disappointed with the scenery but not the road.

RE: ISO guidance, info about class B

I have a '95 Roadtrek that I bought 1 year ago. It had been owned by a family in KY prior to being sold to my neighbor. He found out the bed is only 5'11" and he is 6'3". After one trip I bought it. It had 86,000 miles on a Dodge 318 and now has about 93,000. I have used it in town and gotten a little over 15 mpg on that. On a 2600 mile trip in June I got 17.5 mpg for the trip. It does not use any oil so far and it has been very enjoyable. The only problem with any B is the size of the tanks will be limiting your shower ability. Full hookups would alleviate that problem. I have not had full hookups yet on the Roadtrek. On my previous '03 Mountain Aire I never needed hookups because the tanks were large enough for a good week with showers every day for both of us. I paid $12,000 for mine and it was a good expense. The tires were only 2 years old. I took it to a friend from Church who has a service garage and he checked everything over. He did adjust the rear brakes because the adjuster was frozen. I got all the records since new showing everything that had been done and where.

RE: Lake Ontario - N or S side?

The Canadian side of the falls is the best view but Goat Island on the NY side is good also. Niagara, NY is worth skipping. Cross on the Rainbow Bridge and cross back at Lewiston.

RE: Medigap under 65

Rates vary by location. I am in Michigan and here in W. MI the rates are about 1/2 the rates in Detroit. Some companies go by county, some by zip code and some for the entire state.
