RE: Ford Bronco Sport

Too bad. Poor decision on Ford's part. I was hoping to see something new that could be towed 4-down that had the capabilities of a Wrangler, without riding like a piece of farm equipment.

RE: Food!

Maybe it's time to go vegan? ;) Yup. Great idea. Now, let me count the number of vegan restaurants within 50 miles of me. Hmmmmm, if I'm adding correctly, it would be exactly NONE! :)

RE: CSA

Way to many Me, Me, Me people and those that say it's their right to spread Covid by not social distancing or wearing a mask. If you don't want to follow the rules, fine but stay with the rest of you're non-mask wearing friends, BUT stay away from those of us trying our best to not get sick with Covid. Well said.

RE: What a way to start a trip

Be sure you ask for an additional amount as diminished value. Almost NOBODY thinks of this when insurance pays to repair a vehicle, but that vehicle has been wrecked, and when it comes time to resell it you definitely WILL be financially penalized for that fact. This is common knowledge, but not so common when it comes to signing off on damages paid by the insurance company. Hope the rest of your trip goes much much better!

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

That insurance figure is crazy!!! Would you really pay 12% per year of the value of the vehicle to insure it? That would be like paying $3600 in premium to insure a $30,000 car .... and the car would spend substantially more time on the road (exposure) than would the motorhome. Sounds like that's one aspect of the purchase you might to research more fully. Happy travels!

RE: alaska 2021 ???

Mom and Pops may be best suited to surviving. Few if any business expenses for those that own the real property. Why the gloom and doom? "Few if any business expenses for those that own the real property" ......never owned a small business, have you?

RE: CSA

I live close to the border Detroit to Windsor. I usually tow my boat into Ontario 6 times in July-August for fishing. This year that could not be done. I support the closure. Most Canadians seem to support it due to their very low covid numbers compared to ours. I think if we had a 3 week mandatory nation-wide shutdown, except for essential workers, the virus would be dramatically reduced. Then slowly reopen with strict control measures; masks, distancing, etc. Great idea, but it should have been done at the beginning of this whole thing!

RE: Beaux Bridge Camping World

I'm not sure any retailer would respond to your question. I wouldn't if I was still in retailing. Why not? If it's permanently closed -- say so. If not, provide the poster with an anticipated re-opening date. Sounds like a fairly simple request to me! :C

RE: Caps on personal property

Anyone with a special situation needs to disclose that when the policy is written. The most common policy off the shelf is just the low cost minimum coverage. If you go with the basic you are self insured on many items. I fully agree, however those with special situations might not realize that they have 'special situations' (i.e.- items requiring a separate rider to be fully covered) until they have it explained to them by a competent agent.

RE: Caps on personal property

The whole insurance situation is very complex and misunderstood, if understood at all, by most. For example, very few businesses include business interruption coverage in their coverage. Why? Either they're not offered it, or it's not explained well by the agent. Hence, in case of a loss, it can be devastating. Same thing with individuals who assume certain things are covered, only to find out that they're not. A simple, low-cost rider could have prevented a financial loss, but again, many insurance agents don't even mention them. Hate to say it, but riders are low-commission items, and they can involve a lot of work when it comes to itemizing and valuing. If you feel an agent has misguided you, or has failed to offer appropriate coverage, please remember that they almost always carry professional liability insurance (much like a doctor, Realtor, etc.), so don't be concerned about going after them. They, like any other professional, should be held accountable.

RE: used price

Would $11,000 for a 2010 Keystone Cooper Canyon 252 be a fair price. It all depends if you're the buyer or the seller! :C

RE: Personal property ins.

Yes, riders are necessary for such items as musical instruments, collections, jewelry, artwork, and so forth. Ask your agent. They're readily available.

RE: Cracked Dash

Definitely skin it. For about 100 bucks you can buy the kit. Easy installation and looks almost identical to a new dash that you'd spend over $1200 for. Stay away from the 'carpet' fix. It fades almost immediately, and just looks cheap. You'll find that a lot of dealers go the skin route on their older trucks. Dodges are also notorious for denigrating dashes.It appears you bought and installed one. Are they difficult to get to stick down to where they are invisible to the eye and blend in with original dash? And do they stay stuck or will they eventually pop loose? Over the years I've actually done a number of them. They install and stick down easily, and are quite form-fitting, but I quickly learned after the first one to use additional double-sided tape. Actually they look quite nice, and have caused no issues to my knowledge.

RE: Advantages of diesel pushers

The advantages of a DP are many.. The engine being "Way back there" it's a much quieter ride (For you at least) More towing capacity (Typically 10,000 pound hitch may be able to pull it More cargo carrying capacity More power at low RPM Diesel engines tend to be very long life BUT expensive to service. And COST is the major negative. . Not true there are FRED's diesel fronts chassis's A FRED is not a DP. Remember, the "P" in DP is for pusher.

RE: Advantages of diesel pushers

Easy to have engine maintenance performed on it, just flip the hood and total engine access. I assume you're referring to a "Super C" as they like to call them. The same time we had our Winnebago Journey DP we had a friend with a Super C. Yes, the Super C engine access was great -- but how often do you have to access it? Once a year for an oil change? The drawbacks, as we observed, were that his cockpit was just that - a cockpit - and didn't become a very usable living area, nor did it have the panoramic windshield of the DP. The noise of the diesel engine was in front of you, and not behind you (so was a certain degree of heat from it, but not unbearable). It really and truly rode much more like a truck than our DP. I guess because it was, for all practical purposes, a medium-duty truck. And (this is just me) I used to tease him that his motorhome looked like a U-Haul truck with full body paint. I know, not very nice of me, but it was true . . . and believe it or not, we're still best of friends. Conclusion: you make the choice that's best for YOU. Happy travels.

RE: Buying from private party in California

So you're saying that if I buy a car from a CA dealer, and I live in another state and will register it in that state, I pay CA sales tax as well as tax in my home state??Yes if you take delivery in CA. Dealer would have to ship the vehicle out of CA to avoid CA sales tax. Usually your home state will give credit for out of state sales tax when you register. OK, I thought they were a reciprocal state. Thanks for confirming.

RE: Buying from private party in California

Don't overthink it. If private party, buy the vehicle and drive it back to AZ and register it and pay any AZ fees. California collects sales tax at the time if registering. Since you're not registering in CA don't worry about it. Even if you get a speeding ticket driving through California to get home the courts are not going to be asking anything like "Did you pay the California sales tax on this vehicle?" Again, buy the vehicle, drive home and register it. As far as buying form a dealer, that's a different story as the dealer has a license to worry about so you're going to be paying the tax. So you're saying that if I buy a car from a CA dealer, and I live in another state and will register it in that state, I pay CA sales tax as well as tax in my home state??

RE: WHAT dinghy or toad is good to tow ???

Three Honda’s; two Elements and a CRV. Two Jeeps, a CJ and a newer Wrangler. I’ll stick with Honda’s as long as I can. We drive around a LOT at our destination. The Jeeps beat you up on pot holed, rougher road. MPG is poor. Both mine were soft tops; fun but no security as far as going shopping and leaving stuff in the vehicle. I must agree with the Honda's instead of getting beat up in a Jeep. We towed a Pilot for over 20,000 miles and it never missed a beat. Then, when we needed to use it, it was comfortable and secure.
