RE: Park models

I always thought Park Models were generally bigger than a TT and also a lot heavier. They aren't meant to be moved from campground to campground. Hence the name "Park(it) Model". Kind of like a small mobile home. This is my idea of a park model. Wow! Lake Havasu City sure has changed since I was first there back in the '70's when the London Bridge first opened. One word: Californians. back then Hughes?? would fly you out and show you around the development. not that crowded at the time. a lady in my car pool took them up on the flight/visit but didn't buy. to get the flight you had to give them a check, payable to both you and to Hughes?? which was returned if you didn't buy. I checked zillow the other day and got about 1000 hits, most park models. bumpy

This is my idea of a park model. yep, that is how I remember them. the current "park model" WOULD seem to be just a large TT. old ones were sort of like the current "tiny house" jobbies. bumpy

RE: Park models

I was not aware that "Park" models had slideouts. I thought that they were limited to a certain square feet and some sort of cheated that by adding a "storage loft". but then it has been many years since I was looking at them. bumpy

RE: How much do you really need?

If you already have a camper take it to a CAT scale and see what it weighs compared to the empty weight...that will give you your current cargo weight. UVW of the new trailer + current cargo weight should be a decent estimate for the new rig. I would probably bump that up a bit (maybe 500lb) as nature abhors a vacuum and big rigs with lots of storage (ie: vacuum) tend to get filled. If this comes in below the GVWR, you have a reasonable basis for using your calculation over GVWR. Keep in mind 3000lb CCC is more than most RVs have, particularly smaller non-toy haulers. 1000-2000 CCC is more common and it's very easy to max that out, so lacking better information, is where the recommendation to use GVWR comes from as most people have no clue what their actual cargo weight is. yep, and 1500 lbs. would be a "normal" cargo weight. bumpy

RE: Using a c-pap in a TC Inverter numbers W/Humidifier.

..Everyone says never run the C-Pap with the humidifier while boondocking without any numbers to back it up. . I don't think anybody said to NEVER run the humidifier when boondocking, just that it will use up some of your battery power. also a recent post reminded me that my heated hose also will draw something. whether this is a problem would be on a case by case basis. bumpy

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk 29MVP. Do I need to add Surge Protector

Im going to ask s dumb question . I use the same surge protector without a remote. Why is having a remote necessary on a surge protector ? it is NOT necessary. I have gone many years without a remote. they can be helpful however. just thought of a term to describe somebody addicted to one, a fussbudget. bumpy

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk 29MVP. Do I need to add Surge Protector

WELL...I've received the Surge Guard from BOAT AND RV ACCESSORIES Co. They sell at their own web site and EBAY. Seems to work...BUT...it didn't come with the "Included Remote LCD readout" nor the alternate plastic weather guard! Reread their add several times and was SURE it says "Included". Contacted them. They SAY it 'Actually' says..."CAPABILITY for using Remote LCD readout included". The remote must be bought SEPARATELY! I Re-Re-read ad...6 more times... I won't be buying ANYTHING from them again. so who was right? bumpy

RE: Flip down TV mount for the ceiling above the cab

Some rvs have a plywood square support board built into the wall at a tv location from the factory. On my tv’s, i mounted my pivoting tv arm to a cutting board first by bolting it. Then that board got mounted using a dozen screws , into the factory plywood thats inside the wall. The bolts and washers will not rip out of the cutting board and all those screws will distribute the weight. I have never had a tv fall off a wall using this method. I also use a support strap attached to the wall studs using screws and a plastic adjustable buckle secures the web strap around the tv. a web strap is a great addition bumpy

RE: Canadian snowbirds: sell RV in Canada or USA?

I assume you bought the truck in CA ???? if so will it pass US requirements? from your post I can't really tell if your RV is a TT. 5er, etc. bumpy

RE: Campsite Squatters

What’s wrong with being a tree hugger exactly? https://i.postimg.cc/TPnRpSzQ/IMG-3293.jpg I'm a tree hugger. I to am an environmentalist. I just enjoy exploring the great outdoors on my ATV. tearing up the wilderness on an ATV doesn't sound too "environmental" to me. bumpy

RE: Wishing to stay out of I-95S through Washington DC

Go to Norfolk---Take US 58 west out of there all the way to I-85 at South Hill. It is good 4 lane road. Take I-85 South to Durham. There are other ways but none less complicated. from I-95 at Richmond, take I-85 to durham. don't go near Norfolk if you stay on I-95, take the middle lane down to the I-85 turnoff, exit 51. if you take I-295 you need to backtrack about 5 miles. bumpy

RE: Campsite Squatters

I didn’t hear anyone say it was wrong to be a treehugger, but from looking online at the definitions ... I don’t think anyone driving a big truck with a truck camper will qualify for that term. do as I say, not as I do. bumpy

RE: Campsite Squatters

Animal poo in the woods isn't concentrated in one spot for years but scattered around the area they frequent nor do they dump harmful chemicals in the woods...... unlike humans. you obviously haven't seen the pile of deer poop around the salt block in my backyard. bumpy
