RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

Plus, just remember, 'you can't take it with you' . . . . . I've never seen a hearse pulling a U-Haul.

RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

My mother told me a long time ago “You will regret the things you didn’t do more than the things you did do”. Get the camper and go enjoy time with your wife. FULLY agree. Every day you wait to buy it is one less day you have to enjoy it.

RE: Is There a 24’ Version of These RVs available?

Here you go: https://www.tigervehicles.com Interesting concept, however the company shows no new ones even available, and a nationwide search on RVTrader shows no used available -- any year, make, or model -- none. To me, and correct me if I'm wrong, it looks as though access to the cockpit seats from the house portion should be an Olympic sport, and vice-versa. I think for my money, I'd just as soon buy a nice Lance TC and mount it on the truck of my choice. That way, if I wanted 4wd or a standard shift, it would certainly be available. Am I missing something? I know those vehicles probably cost a heap more than the same configuration in a truck/TC set-up, but of course the website tells us nothing regarding pricing. Happy travels to all.

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

Install a 35% tint on the front side windows and a 70% on the full windshield. ANY tint in the field of vision on a Windshield is illegal in almost all states. Doug I've had 70% tint on full windshields for decades now, cars and motorhomes. LEO's aren't looking for that -- they're looking for the real dark stuff. Visibly, you couldn't tell the difference -- neither could I -- but when it comes to cooling .... wow! Only two states — Ohio and North Dakota — allow you to tint the entire windshield, but it has to be 70 percent or lighter. Is front windshield tint legal in Alabama? Only the upper six inches of the front windshield may be tinted. The material applied must be transparent. All other windows (side and rear) may have tinting that allows at least 32% light transmission with a 3% tolerance. The reflective material may not reflect more than 20% of light. How much is a ticket for Window Tint in Alabama? Window film can keep your car looking and feeling cool, but there's nothing cool about paying a $100 fine for violating Alabama window tinting regulations. .Apr 17, 2018 Hmmmm, food for thought. I wonder how many 70% windshield tint tickets are issued in a year in any given state? Maybe you can research that for us. I know I'm probably the only one on this entire forum that has full windshield tint, and probably the only one that violates any other obscure laws as well :W, but it would be interesting to find out (even though my car isn't even registered in Alabama)

RE: Removing cigarette/cigar smoke residue, ozone machine?

At least the renter's security deposit you kept (and I sure HOPE you kept it) will help pay for whatever you do to TRY to alleviate or minimize the odor. Fortunately, the smoking wasn't a long-term issue, because long-term, NOTHING will get it all out for good (especially in hot, humid weather). Hope you find a great solution, and of course change your rental agreement wording for future renters. Actually this was family that came to visit for a few days... I haven’t gotten up enough nerve to rent out ANYTHING to someone I don’t know...:E Oooooh.....when it's family the rule book changes. Remember, when it comes to renting something you own, nobody will treat it like you do. My son says every time he rents a car, he "drives it like he stole it" -- concerns me a bit, but what do you do?

RE: For sale ads?

Take a LOT of GOOD pictures, price it right (do your homework), and list it on RVTrader. You should sell it fairly fast.

RE: Hwy 442 Gatlinburg

Unless you want to go into the park I would take the fast route 40 to 411 to 441. Lot easier than going over the hill. Agreed. I-40 E to 411 South. I'd avoid 441.

RE: Ram TRX vs Cybertruck

Take the number of years of truck-making experience each manufacturer has and make your decision based on that. I know that's what I'd do.

RE: Crack at DeLam Fix - What to Do?

That's a question for CW. If they fixed it as recently as last fall, surely they warrant their work. An auto body shop certainly would, so I can't see that CW would be any different. My advice, however, is to push the 'up' button -- go directly to the shop manager and explain the situation. I'll bet they make it right. Either way, please let us know the outcome. Happy travels!

RE: NC Florida to Montgomery

I-10 west to 231, then up 231 would be my route of choice. I've made this drive many times. 331 is too far out of the way, and slower going. Unless you've already made reservations, you might consider Deer Run RV Park in Troy. Maybe an hour south of Montgomery, a very nice park. Just a thought. Happy travels!

RE: New Ford Pickup weighs payload and tongue weight

If it disables the truck until the load is lightened then by all means a good idea. Good God.....NO! All I need is a truck that shuts off if its 100lbs over some fictitious payload rating! I agree. What if your fat Aunt Millie wanted to ride along -- she'd throw the whole thing into a tailspin!!

RE: New York mandates car sales be zero emission only by 2035.

As kids we were promised flying cars well before now. Where the heck are they??? Of course I also remember one of my high school teachers professing that by the year 2000 there would be no more land left on earth for us to live on, so we would have to start inhabiting undersea and outer space dwellings. Hmmmm. Almost believed it back then (1960's). Can we say 'crackpot'? .........when I think back to all the cr-- I learned in high school, it's a wonder I can think at all........

RE: Breakdown with Truck Camper?

1. Hard to beat free 2. You won't find a better insurance company than USAA (although I'm with State Farm, only because I don't qualify for USAA -- wish I did!)

RE: New Ford Pickup weighs payload and tongue weight

Sounds good to me. Considering the fact that trucks have pretty much doubled in price over the last 10 years, and passenger cars have had an average increase of only 25-30% over the same time period, I fully expect a LOT of new technology and features on the new trucks. Naturally, the high demand for unnecessarily large trucks is pushing the prices sky-high, but buyers need to expect a good bit of new technology and product content in return.

RE: Free Immunizations to Tourists

Just get your shots wherever you call home and carry your immunization card with you. Easy as that.

RE: BT Cruiser with bed over cab

Greetings, The Gulfstream BT Cruiser 5210 is the perfect design for me, except I'm needing a bed over the cab as well. Do you know of any class C which would fit this description? Thanks in advance, The BT Cruisers are true Class B+ units, in that they're basically a Class C with no overcab bed -- usually just a TV or some storage in that area -- making aerodynamics somewhat better and avoiding the 'lift' of a Class C at speed. That being said, your best bet, as I see it, would to start looking at various manufacturer's Class C configurations, because that's exactly what you're asking for. Myself, I'd start with the better brands and work my way down to the "if I had to settle for something..." brands. Best of luck in your search!

RE: 3/4 ton diesel vs. gas

You know that hill you go up now at 2000 RPM in your diesel? It will be at 5500 RPM in the gasser. If you like to hear a screaming motor, get the gasser. If you like the easy rolling diesel, pay for the repairs and drive it for another 10 years. A friend of mine just pulled his 35 foot trailer with a diesel for the first time last week. His first comment when he arrived at the campground was, it didn't even work coming up the hill. This is a man that has always modded his exhaust to get the loud V-8 sound. He said "No more screaming motor and stopping for fuel every 150 miles." What the F? That so called "screaming" motor is working at its designed parameters. Only the uninformed would refer to a working symphony of parts working as designed as screaming. I'm sure by "screaming" he means the deafening noise, not that the engine isn't doing what it's supposed to. Call me 'uninformed' if you like, but noise is noise -- and it's not a pleasant sound.
