RE: Independent Pricing of New and Used Motorhomes

"I completely understand, and I usually tend to prefer private party sales over dealerships simply because they are typically more expensive (re: overhead costs, profit margins, etc). " Yes, however, also factor in the dealer's service available after the sale, the fact that the dealer most likely did a thorough inspection of the unit and fixed items that needed fixing, and the fact that they can at least offer you a warranty (service contract) on the unit, even if you have to pay something for it.

RE: questions about rental RV

Eight people sharing one teeny tiny bathroom should be the highlight of the trip :C

RE: Not Utilizing RV Parks or Boondocking

We travel to enjoy ourselves, not to be cheapskates or risk our safety. Funny that, one of the main reasons I tend to overnight in rest stops and such rather than a campground. When I’m in transit I tend to pull long days broken up by short ‘stretch your legs’ breaks, fuel stops, meal breaks, etc. That means I’m not stopping for the day until sometime after 10pm and am always back on the road before 8am. I would feel like a real heel disturbing a bunch of families trying to enjoy their vacation while I parked in a site equipped with services I neither want or need for a few hours sleep. In 30+ years of doing this (probably a dozen nights a year I’ve never even heard of anyone doing so having any kind of problem. Well, if you're driving until after 10 pm and heading out again before 8 am, you're probably not on the 'trip enjoyment schedule' that I'm on. If I'm in that big of a hurry I like airplanes!! . No, I’m not, I’m on my way to fix airplanes or teach people how to fly them. I’m also not ignorant or uncaring enough to disturb a bunch of people who ARE on ‘trip enjoyment schedule’. When I’m in a real hurry I fly too. I REALLY like airplanes, that’s why I own so many of them!! LOL. Sure, to each his own. But driving 14-hour days, especially two or three in a row, would wear me out! Maybe you're a lot younger than I am!! :W But as I see it, if you're going somewhere to fix airplanes or teach people to fly them, there's got to be an airport there, right? With so many many airplanes in your personal stable, I'd be chomping at the bit to fly everywhere, not beat myself up on the road. But as I've already stated, to each his own! Happy travels.

But believe me, they do exist.

RE: What did you wake up to this morning?

Sunny and 70 degrees. I'm not a snow person -- I grew up in Michigan and in the first 21 years of my life I'd had enough snow to last me the rest of my life -- so I headed south!!! (and that was in 1970!)

RE: security page.. new?

It's happened to me, and twice, although I 'passed' it, it deleted the entire post!!...so I had to re-write it. I have started copying my post, then if I have to play some stupid game to actually get it posted, and the thing deletes it, at least I don't have to write it all over again -- I can just paste it!

RE: I Am severely dissapointed.

Get a lawyer RFN and launch a law-suit. Do NOT wait for them to to get their act together. Gary Haupt Wouldn't that cost a hell of a lot of money. I can look into it though I guess protecting a 80k purchase. If you've only owned it for 2 weeks, getting a lawyer couldn't be a worse idea. The consensus would be that after only 2 weeks, you haven't really given the dealer or manufacturer an adequate chance to make things right. Also, those who scream 'lawyer' probably aren't familiar with the fact that any dealer or manufacturer that realizes you've retained a lawyer just needs to take a step back and say OK, fine, 'let your lawyer duke it out with our lawyers' .... and time goes on, and on, and on. Think it our well before making any rash decisions.

RE: Not Utilizing RV Parks or Boondocking

We've never boondocked, and the thought of overnighting in a WalMart parking lot just isn't our cup of tea. We travel to enjoy ourselves, not to be cheapskates or risk our safety. At times, a motel is exactly what we want, even when our mode of transportation is an RV. At Disney, our DP sat in the parking lot when we stayed at the Contemporary Resort. In Custer State Park we enjoyed one night each in their amazing lodges. Sometimes the 'experience' just isn't the same in an RV, and those are choices we make.

RE: road trip in Feb or March

Be sure to see the Christmas lights -- National Geographic calls St. Augustine's one of the top 10 in the world.

RE: road trip in Feb or March

St. Augustine fits the bill -- just go there again & see things you haven't seen yet!

RE: Towing In Snow Who's Done It?

Sounds treacherous to me, although I know many have done it (and regularly do it). How about a nice airplane ride to Idaho and a comfy Resort with a roaring fire in the lobby? :B Seriously, hope all works out well for you!

RE: Camco. 44421

So is Camco the only brand you can use? Looks like a pretty standardized item to me.

RE: Looking at a couple of new (used) motorhome options. Advice?

The Gulfstream DP looks nice, and the fact that it's a Cummins diesel makes it even nicer. The only drawback is that it's likely the old 275hp Cummins, which I hear was pretty much a gutless wonder. Best of luck in your search!

RE: Temporary "driveway" over grass?

I'm sure the neighbors and the HOA Board are really going to like your new deal. They have covenants like that for a reason and you are just heading for a fight with the HOA. I've never read an HOA that limits HOW you get your RV to an inconspicuous spot, and believe me, I've read PLENTY of them! I'd drive it across the grass (unless for some reason you feel you will sink deeply in). After all, how frequently are you going to be taking it in and out?? If it were daily I'd configure something permanent, but for the occasional use I suspect it will see, my vote is for over the grass.

RE: 2014 Kia Sorrento LX Towing 2016 Little Guy MAX S

If you have your heart set on the Little Guy, you might consider upgrading to a newer Sorrento V6 (5000# capacity), or just go all out and opt for a new Telluride!

RE: How do you value your RV?

Craigslist and RV Trader can be good guidelines, but remember, you are seeing what sellers are ASKING for their RV's, and not what their RV's actually SELL for, if they sell at all. Your best bet is to 'find the market' ---- To do this, begin by pricing your RV at what you feel is a realistic price. If after a week or 10 days you get little or no response, LOWER the price. Let it run another week or so, but be ready to systematically continue to lower the price until you find the sweet spot, at which time it will sell. Best of luck to you, but has already been mentioned, you're not entering into the best selling season.

RE: an interesting new design rv

Very interesting. Looks well thought out with attention to quality materials as well. My issue would be they'd have to work really hard to make it any uglier!! Some cosmetics would be a tremendous help....and some decent looking wheels.

RE: Extended warranty

Some of you never miss a chance to argue. Op asked about Wholesale warranties. Not opinions on whether they should get a warranty at all. 2 pages of chest puffing. I agree regarding what the OP asked for. Refer back to my post of 10/30/20 07:32am

RE: Extended warranty

I'm against buying extended warranties. How much is that going to cost? Put that money aside for IF you need it and collect the interest, buying it is betting somethings going to break. Most everything that can break can be bought for $1000 +/- plus labor. Buying new warranty should have everything fixed before it runs out. If you are a DYI type you'll save a lot more. OP wasn't soliciting opinions on extended service contracts (yes, they're service contracts, not warranties -- warranties are only issued by the original vehicle manufacturer). Also, with the line of thinking that you're "betting something's going to break" the same could be said for any kind of insurance we 'gamble' with -- homeowners, auto, life, health, etc. Honestly, don't we buy these coverages hoping we're never going to have to use them -- I sure do! Your an A1 realtor? You know unless you pay cash the bank requires insurance, just like the law for driving, what he is taking about is purely optional and BS for the price. Just look p some of the horror stories I bough the insurance and it didn't cover, I could not find a dealer that would take, etc etc etc. I can bank the 3K and hire a mobile RV repair to fix dang near anything for $1500 & I save half. Your jobs sales mines keeping my $$ in my account. I believe if hes considering the insurance he's buying new so will have warranty for 1-2 years depending on manufacture. He can hope he never has to use it as we al know those horror stories, my RV has been at the dealer for x months and I'm still waiting. His question tells my he's new to this and IF you have any experience you should be well aware of the horror stories in most every brand except maybe SpaceCraft. Regarding your question "Your (you're) an A1 realtor?" --- if you'll look closer, it says "A1A" and not A1, which refers to the road my original office was on. A1A runs along the Atlantic coast of Florida. As for insurance, yes, some is mandatory, but only at minimum limits. Most people don't carry minimum limits, so they're essentially gambling that something IS going to happen requiring higher limits of liability. You called the OP's intended purchase "BS for the price" however I don't recall where he ever mentioned the price(?), and frankly, the horror stories you talk about can be linked to ANY kind of insurance, and not just RV extended service contracts.
