RE: Personal experience with having slides and no slides?

That's a good point about the loss of cabinets in the length of the slide outs. I hadn't thought of that before, but I think it would still be good to have all that room inside. I notice those units where the slide blocks the refrigerator or microwave when it's retracted and I immediately cross those off the list. I don't like the slides that have the refrigerator or oven or something IN the slide-out. That just looks like trouble. Yes, it's really important to be able to walk through the unit with the slides in. That's what bothers me about those big kitchens with the islands. Seems like you get a ton of extra counter space but with the slide in, you'd have to really "suck it in" to get through there.

RE: Personal experience with having slides and no slides?

Thank you all! I've loved reading each of your posts and I hope more people will chime in. I believe for me and my situation, slides are a must. I've just heard about problems with drafts or water leaks and stuff but I've been around long enough to know that no matter what you say you want to do, there will be a bevy of people who will raise concerns about it. I guess it's human nature. I'm going to keep searching for the right travel trailer that has 2 slides. That will do me just fine. But keep posting! Can't wait to read what everyone has to say on the matter.

Personal experience with having slides and no slides?

I thought this would be a topic that had been discussed ad nauseam but after searching the forum with a fine tooth comb, I couldn't find any threads talking about slides as far as personal experiences. I have been living in an old Class C for over 3 years now and I've been saving for a newer rig with slides. But you know how it is. You talk to someone just in passing and you say you want something with slides this next time and they start telling you all the stuff that could go wrong. I just want to hear from people who have gone from a vehicle with no slides and moved to one with slides (or vice versa) and get your opinions. I'm a single older woman and I don't want added stress but I fulltime and I'd love to live in something that doesn't feel like a hallway for a change. Thank you in advance.

RE: Hard time finding a short full mattress.

I ended up buying one off Amazon. Awaiting its arrival. Thanks, everyone.

RE: Hard time finding a short full mattress.

I didn't know what size it was but took the measurements and then googled and found that it was called a short full. I agree that it's more like a narrow full but that's what they call it. Thanks for all the suggestions, everyone. I appreciate it.

RE: Hard time finding a short full mattress.

Short full's are the the size I need. They are 75 x 48, give or take. I can't afford to have one specially made for me. I'll check the links you guys shared. Thanks for doing that. :)

Hard time finding a short full mattress.

I've looked on Amazon, Ebay, Wayfair, Camping World (website) and Overstock. It's near impossible to find mattresses in short full and when I manage to find one, they aren't firm or are really thin, etc. Surely there are places that sell these buggers. There has to be! Anybody got any ideas? TIA.

RE: Shopping for travel trailer. I need help, please

I gave up with that guy. I suspect he was just jerking me around. Thanks for your assistance though. I gave it my absolute best and I'm taking this as working out for the best.

RE: Shopping for travel trailer. I need help, please

He said that is the only weight that is on the title. I've asked him to send me a picture of either the GVWR on the title or to look for a spec label inside the trailer. This guy is driving me nuts, but this is so common with people selling trailers that are far away from me. I get aggravated! Where is the most likely place those labels would be found in a travel trailer? My Class C has it in the closet near the bedroom.

Shopping for travel trailer. I need help, please

It's like pulling teeth to get these folks who are placing for sale ads to tell me the weights of their trailers. This particular guy I'm texting with now is giving me the "wt/wheels" weight which is 5,940. Isn't that the weight that each axle can bear? That has nothing to do with the GVWR, right? I'd just drive up and look at it but it's 2 hours north of me. Any help you can offer will be much appreciated. Thank you.

RE: Good Sam Mail Service

I would put in an 'individual' change of address. There is a box on the change of address card to be checked,for business, family, or individual. A change would have to be filled out for every person in your family, each one checked 'individual'. The person is right about everyone at good sam with a last name the same as yours would have their mail forwarded if you checked family. But by checking individual, only the person with the name specified on the form would have it forwarded. The mail would be pulled out and forwarded before it was received at good sam-they probably would never see it. When you have everyone notified of your new address then cancel the change. As an ex postal employee I would give it a try.(unless the regulations have changed since I retired.) Gary That's what I thought, Gary. And the fact that I have an actual number assigned to me and it doesn't just go to Good Sam with no number, that confused me. I may still try it and see what happens. I have nothing to lose. As I said, I don't want to let individuals know my new address, but that's a personal matter. Thanks to all who replied. :)

RE: Good Sam Mail Service

Okay. Thanks for sharing your experiences. I'll have to go that route, then. I really can't justify the expense of keeping the box now that I'm not moving around like I was.

Good Sam Mail Service

I have a box and want to cancel it and put in a change of address, so mail will no longer go there but go to my current address out in NM. I just called to talk to someone about it and was told that it's not possible. That because they are a mail forwarding service, I can't put in a change of address. "Or everyone with the name of Smith would get forwarded to the new address." I objected, she said it can't be done and said I should contact each person who is mailing me at that address. Well, for reasons I'd rather not go into here, that's not going to work. Why can't I just drop a change of address card in the mail (out here in NM) and have it go into the postal system so anything addressed to FL goes to my current address? Am I missing something here? Thanks for any input.
