RE: Price of camping

Supply and demand. They price it at what the public will pay even though it may drive a few away. Some RVs are selling for twice or more what they were not many years ago.

RE: I Bought Too Much Truck

……. My solution for most parking: I don't park in the area of the parking lot where other vehicles are... I park in the back 40 so other people don't park near me. ……. That’s great when there is a back 40. But quite often not an option. Seems medical offices, some fast food places, some small businesses, etc have small lots with narrow spaces to squeeze in as many vehicles as possible. My cardiologist, eye doctor, retina specialist, and dentist have small lots and no street parking and a pain parking my F350 CC long bed, even when backing in. Then have to fold the mirrors just to pass between my truck and the vehicle next to me.

RE: Ram Cummins/Aisin Failures

Shoot the messenger. Doesn’t matter who posts legitimate info about potential problems with any specific brand, that person and that info will get blasted by that brand’s fanboys. :S

RE: I Bought Too Much Truck

I know your feelings exactly. I first had a 2007 F350 CC long bed and then traded for a 2012 F350 CC long bed towing my 5er with the pair a total of 14 years. Loved the trucks for towing. But not as a daily driver. Small tight parking lots were a pain. Parking garages were often a no go making having to find alternate parking areas at places that had no open surface parking. Sold the 5er and downsized to a 2022 F150 CC long bed. Still long but not as high and still can not whip into just any open parking place. But much easier than before.

RE: Prevost developing an electric coach.

Although someone will turn a few into RVs, those are aimed at the mast transit market.

RE: Class B license to other states

From Moving to Texas Transferring an Out of State Driver License to Texas New Texas residents can legally drive with a valid, unexpired driver license from another U.S. state, U.S. territory, Canadian province, or qualifying country for up to 90 days after moving to Texas. Prior to the end of the 90 day grace period, a new Texas resident must apply for a Texas license in person at any driver license office to continue to drive legally. When applying for the new Texas license the individual must surrender any unexpired driver license in their possession from another U.S. state, U.S. territory or a Canadian province.

RE: Driver’s license for DPs

FL requires nothing! TX requires a Class B certification for all RV's over 26,000#. ……….. Unless you are towing something with a GVWR over 10,000 lbs, then Texas requires a class A non CDL license. That would be the case of most all trucks towing large 5th wheels and motor homes towing larger utility trailers or even a larger pickup. A MH towing something under 10,000 lbs GVWR can get by with a class B license. And that is “weight rating”, not actual weight.

RE: Driver’s license for DPs

School for a commercial drivers license. Not for a personal use RV. What is your state of residence?

RE: Driver’s license for DPs

Not likely you will need a CDL. But most likely you will need a higher level non CDL license than a standard license. Requirements differ by state. Example is Texas that you need a class A or class B non CDL license for any thing with a GVWR of over 26,001 lbs. Google drivers license for your state.

RE: Leaking walls

You need a thorough inspection of the entire roof and all around the edges and all caulking around vents, A/C, and anything else on the roof. Likely you have cracks in the roofing and/or caulking leading to water intrusion. And if you have a wood frame, it is also likely you have wood rot causing the gutter fastening screws to loosen and pull loose.

RE: New Travel trailer

Is it a 30BHS? Only 32BHS I see is a fifth wheel.

RE: Question about double towing

Definitely state to state regulations and limitations. And getting info in a consolidated and accurate report is difficult, if not impossible. You can find different charts and tables and they will not necessarily agree with each other. And even individual state web sites can be difficult to find the needed info. And not just double towing yes or no. Total legal lengths vary state to state.

RE: Dodge Hurricane Engine Patent

I wouldn’t buy the 1st or 2nd year models.

RE: Pets left alone in RV at campground?

I always assumed left unattended meant unattended outside. Maybe I was wrong. It does depend highly on the dog. We have always had older adopted Golden Retrievers, about the most calm dog there is. We would take them for a walk, then back to the RV before leaving to do whatever it was we wanted to do. They would go into a darker corner of the bedroom and still be asleep when we returned. We left the windows closed, AC or heat as needed, and the TV on for background noise. And never gone more than 2-3 hours. But we have been next to other RVs whose dogs barked the entire time they were gone. And the owners knew it since the dogs were barking when they left and still barking when they returned. That causes problems for all dog owners.

RE: Kitchen stove fan "flap".

Interesting. My 14 year old 5er (and original plastic kitchen vent flapper) were still good when I sold it 2 yrs ago.

RE: Do we have a pickup glut already?

I ordered a new F150 KR loaded August 2021. When I first inquired to salesman he said all trucks were being offered at $10,000 over MSRP, whether on the lot or special order. I said no thanks. Got an email two days later saying they could order me one at $5,000 over MSRP. I said no thanks. Got an email a few days later saying MSRP. I said no thanks. Got another email fairly quickly saying come in and talk. I did. Ended up special ordering at almost $3,000 under MSRP and getting almost $10,000 more for my truck than it had been appraised at several months before. And I could keep my truck until the new one was delivered, estimated at 6 months. And since it arrived December 30, the finance guy said he had a Ford ESP he would give me for free as he would have to otherwise turn it back to the dealer the next day. Another $3,000+. With that, the savings on sales tax by trading my truck, getting to keep it 6 months for free, and the $3,000 off MSRP I was willing to sign. Still not as good as the $14,000 off sticker end of model year left over price I bought my previous truck for, but good enough at the time. Just depends on how bad they want to deal.

RE: Do we have a pickup glut already?

Local dealers (Chevy and Ford) have considerably more trucks than a year ago. But far less than before the chip related shortage.

RE: Forum coding problem?

As 2oldman says, a recurring problem. I have found if it does not immediately pull up the My Forums screen when I click on it, if I just do nothing (don't exit or click anything else) but let it set 15-30 seconds it will usually come up. Just a short delay for some reason in loading. But then My Posts will come right up without delay.

RE: Request Structural Change.

Would not be worth their time to custom make one special for you unless you were will to pay out a premium for it. And not too likely even then. It would require new engineering drawings to restructure the framework. Basically becoming a new model in itself.
