RE: lighter weight four down toad?

I towed my Wrangler and likely will again. BUT, I have since learned you can two a Scion xA manual tranny and the darn thing weighs almost nothing. I was going to dump it when I get the next RV but now I may try to find a bracket for it instead. I know automatic xAs had issues, but this one is bullet proof/reliable.

RE: Alaska - 2023

Gas Buddy can be of help for fuel costs. You need to calculate liters to US gallons and then converter Canadian dollars to US dollars. I've checked that one. Doesn't appear to list diesel. Maybe I'm using it wrong Found info elsewhere tho. Global Petrol Prices dot com. Looks like it was as high as 7.14 US a gallon in June and is now just below $6 a gallon.

RE: I-15 or I-215 Question

I do that route one a month. I almost always stay 15 but I ALWAYS check to see what maps says. Definitely avoid commute times. I would also caution not to attempt to go that way on a sunday after 10am or before 9pm.

Great thread. Going to school on it. Thanks all for the valuable info. Best thread I've seen on here for quite a while.

RE: Twin Falls ID to Las Vegas NV Advice

Did it in a car. October. Went north via this route. 100% agree with OBEY THE SPEED LIMIT. Here's my caution on the road...lots of semis on the road. There are passing lanes. Lots of passing can be going on while you have a passing lane. The guys coming the other way want to pass the slower trucks too. A little too much of this for my comfort level. If I'd been in an RV I would have been moving slower and not felt the need to pass. But everyone else does, and they can easily be using your lane. Coming home we did the SLC route. Not a fan of the traffic in SLC but I felt safer.

RE: Class A fleetwood discovery - should we purchase ??

This much works indicates it has been neglected for quite a while. I'll be buying my next RV to travel, not work. This seems like a ton of work even if you get the guy to "give" it to you. I'm inclined to think what you're seeing is just the tip of the "berg."

RE: 1st time long distance trip need advice

Somebody finally said it, but I'll underscore. Get a copy of Next Exit. We keep a hard copy right between the pilot and navigator. If anything goes awry with plan A, you can use that handy reference to see place that can handle your rig. I just bought the newest edition on Amazon for a friend, like $25 ish. I always plan my trips out. I have diverted from plan, but i try to keep it reasonable to begin with. I scope out gas stops in advance so I know where and when I'm stopping. (yes, it can change=Next Exit) Same for overnight. I prefer NOT to stay in parking lots, especially when towing. Many do tho.
