RE: asking for suggestions/opinions

Every RV from a pop-up to a 40 ft. MH has pluses and minuses. We've had pop-ups, a 17 ft. hybrid trailer, 25 ft. 5th wheel(towed by a half-ton Chevy which was our only vehicle) and now a 30 ft. Class C MH. Personally if starting now I would go right to a used small MH and tow a car but that's very personal. I don't think the ease of towing and manuverability of a 5er would be worth the change. In fact a 5er is not easier to back but you can turn sharper. but then you have to have a truck(very expensive). I can understand "just wanting one". If you go used, the price difference is irrelevant.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

In our senior years, we really try to avoid not having elec. if really hot and humid or well below freezing.

Full Hook-ups or no?

Just curious. Some RVers won't consider sites without FHUs, some prefer the flexability of staying in wilder places without worrying about hook-ups and some are in between, wanting at least electricity. We started around 1970 with a pop-up and didn't even think about the issue and never had hook-ups. Then with an RV for many years we sought out campgrounds often without hook-ups. But now, we really prefer electric but will use a national park campground without. We've never felt sewer to be too important. Even this winter we will be at a national forest site without so we will just drive to the dump once a week. Water hook-up is preferred but no mandatory. I feel that absolutely requiring FHUs causes one to miss out on many beautiful campgrounds.

RE: Warranty coverage

I think I wouldn't count on a warranty leading to no worry. How good will the factory warranty be? Well, it could take them weeks to do the work or you may not be near someone authorized to do the work. Or they might say the item isn't covered. I never buy an extended warranty for any product. You're better off saving up some repair cash. If a warranty is reasonable then it's not going to cover much and vice-versa. RVs are expensive; new or used.

RE: Substancial deposit required

We've experienced all variations from no upfront fee to full amount charged to your card when you reserve(Florida state parks I think). Georgia requires a down payment and balance upon arrival.

RE: Pets and National Parks

Usually not allowed on trails. Unless you hire a sitter I don't think many options besides leaving the pet in the RV. That can be problematic if real hot or cold. We lived by a couple workamping at Glacier NP and they never enjoyed the Park because they didn't want to leave the dogs. That's crazy to us.

Mail Service? What's available?

What's the best, best value mail service for when you will be away for 2 months or more? One that you can direct where and when to send your mail and don't have to join something for a year or more.

RE: How much 5th Wheel can I tow with my truck

Are you all sure the sticker on the door area is specific for a 5th wheel?

RE: How much 5th Wheel can I tow with my truck

I know that tow capacities can be hard to nail down in the owner's manual but that's where your answer lies. Get help from the truck dealer or manufacturer, not an RV business. Off course nailing down the actual total weight you will be towing is crucial. Find a scales or at least estimate the weight of each item; passengers, fluids, food; the whole works. Then, don't tow 100% of the rating. Allow for error; maybe stick to 80%.

RE: It could have went bad!

I've lost count. Entered an exit ramp and saw the towed car in my left outside mirror. That's not right I thought. One side of the tow bar had disconnected allowing the car to run right up behind the MH. Bent the tow bar. Officer helped disconnect and wife followed in car the rest of the way home. New $900 tow bar with some insurance help. I'll never know how or why the safety pin was not in the tow bar connection. Was it my error, vandalism at a stop or did it break. Obviously could have been worse.

RE: Missoula, MT to Columbia Falls and W Glacier

From IL. we've done probably all of those routes both with a 25 ft. 5th wheel and a 30 ft. MH towing a car. Don't remember any issues. We worked at West Glacier 4 summers and lived in our RV. It's our favorite place in the country. Although that part of MT. is very mountainous and scenic, there are not too many steep grades or even high altitude. Also have taken US 2 many times from Duluth all the way. Great route. No steep grades east of Glacier NP and just enough towns to get services. Way more interesting than interstate.

RE: My perception on real gas

Pretty sure with 10% ethanol you lose 25% MPG. So it has to be something like 50 cents cheaper to break even?

RE: Ford is interested in 4 wheel steering

It's no wonder that vehicles cost so much today. All sorts of things, good, bad and neutral, have been added. I remember when power windows, AC and a radio and much more were optional. I don't want to go back but I wish we could keep to features that are truly safety related if wanted and maybe cut the cost by thousands?
Jayco-noslide 01/06/20 09:38am Tow Vehicles
RE: Ford is interested in 4 wheel steering

I wonder what cost it will add? Likely not worth it in my opinion. It's been around, even on cars, but usually not kept.

RE: "Lite" 5th wheels

I think that term is mainly a selling gimmick. There is no standard as to what it really means. But if a trailer is truly "lite" I would wonder what is being left out.

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

We went debt free years ago and it's a great feeling and the financial benefit seems to snowball. No interest, no monthlys, more to invest or spend. I really don't see the benefit of borrowing even short term.

RE: Big Bend National Park

Be aware of the climate there. Been there twice in mid-winter and both times it dramatically changed from hot to cold. We've camped all over and spent the coldest night(-7 F) of our 40 years of camping. I doubt that's normal but it can happen and frightened us.

RE: Metropolis IL

I wonder if one can dry camp in the casino parking lot?

RE: Metropolis IL

We've camped at Ft. Masac(sp? SP and it was OK but I don't remember site lengths. We have a 30 ft. MH. Like many IL SPs it has elec. but maybe not water on site. It's not a real active town but OK.
