RE: toad versus no toad

Our situation is different than yours. We don't have a toad and never have. We have had a motorhome for nine years, over 60,000 miles. Sure, there are a few times that we have wished to have had a toad. But, they are few. A lot of national parks have free public transportation. Most that do not are close to cities that have rental car agencies. Yellowstone Natl Park, for example, is very close to a nice town that has great RV parks and rental cars. Zion, Bryce, and Grand Canyon Natl Parks have great public transportation. And, discourage private cars in the parks. It is my opinion that if you leave the toad at home, you will not regret it. In fact, unless the toad is your daily driver, you may even consider selling it. I will note that before we got our Class C, we had a Foretravel diesel pusher.

RE: 25’ Class C. Ford vs Chevy opinion

Depending on where you travel (lots of hills/mountains) and what you carry/haul, F350/F450 Class C with the new 7.3L gas and 10 speed will be far superior to anything else out there ! I believe you are going to need your magic wand to get that F350/F450 Class C.

RE: Anybody Know of a Class C With This Floorplan?

The Chinook Glacier had a similar floorplan. The difference being there is no bed in the rear, that area being the galley. The sofa made into a bed. They were produced from 2003 to 2006. They are a high quality Class C or B+ and they have a high resell price. More than most are willing to pay for a Class C that old. For the model you are interested in, the floor plan was called the Club Plan.

RE: Yes boys and girls, you REALLY need to carry a spare...

Running the fronts on most 25' or less Class C's at 80 psi per the door stickers {which are a bad joke}, will reduce the contact patch to the point that it will handle like a pig on skates and be blown all over the road by passing trucks and/or cross winds. Putting 80 in the rears would be serious overkill las at 80 they are rated for 2,640# of load X 4 = 10,560# to carry a 7,700# load. This also creates a very stiff ride that will beat you to death and shorten tire life. :C Most Michelin tires for a 25' or less Class C would have a load rating of 2,470# in a dual wheel configuration. Please provide the tire size.

RE: Michelin kaboom! Michelin tire update!

The Defender LTX M/S has not been discontinued. But it has been discontinued in the size 225/75R16 LRE.

RE: Michelin kaboom! Michelin tire update!

We had Michelin tires on a 27 ft Winnebago class A motorhome. They had dry rot cracks on the sidewalls. They were less than 3 years old with less than 12,000 miles. The motorhome was parked under cover on gravel. The tires were not covered, were not aired up to maximum, and motorhome was not moved for the last year owned. Our current class C motorhome has Michelin tires that are five years old with 33,000 miles and have no dry rot on sidewalls. The motorhome is store inside, on concrete, driven every two months or less, driven at 65 mph or less in hot and cold weather, aired to maximum psi on rear dual tires, and weight is under GAWR and GVWR. Maybe just a coincidence? Were the cracked tires part of the '10-'12 Michelin recall? Our used class C had them and the sidewalls suddenly went from good to badly cracked around year 3-4. Replaced with 7 (incl. spare) free new Michelins which we're still running. No. The tires were 19.5 wheels. The tires were put on in March of 2012 and the motorhome was sold in July of 2014. The dealer who sold the motorhome on consignment would not list the motorhome for sale until we put on new tires. They said they would not sell a motorhome with dry rotted tires.

RE: Tire inflation

What?? way2roll, I apologize for the confusion. In my opinion, You were absolutely CORRECT in your post. I was merely making a point that, after your post, CapriRacer suggested how to use the inflation charts and parkmanaa suggested he was incorrect. And, both posters then gave what seemed to be credentials to support their positions. I was attempting to support your post. Again, I apologize for the confusion.

RE: Tire inflation

Agreed. The only way to know what your tires proper psi is to load your rig for travel, food, water, people etc, and get 4 corner weights or at least axle weights and use the tire manufacturers charts to adjust psi accordingly. The only way. I agree. However, It seems as if the tire experts on this forum, and other forums, cannot agree on how to use the tire manufacturers charts to adjust psi accordingly. Refer to CapriRacer post above.

RE: Question about rear Dining/Living/Bed

Our 25ft class C/B+ does not have a bed, cabover, or dinette. But it does have a 76" sofa, two lounge chairs, rear galley, and full bathroom. It is like having the living space of a 36ft diesel pusher without the bedroom and washer/dryer. Between the two lounge chairs is a fold out table and the sofa converts to a bed. It is not for everyone but we love it.
