RE: the ultimate truck camper truck.

So there! Take that, weight police.

RE: How important is tire size to your selection?

It looks like the GVWR/CGVWR are the same at 22,000/26,000 on the Mirada and the Vision XL. We had a 2010 Mirada 35DS with the same ratings for 5 seasons. We weighed right at 20,000 travel ready. It was on 19.5's and we never had an issue.

RE: Buying used from Dealership and trading in our C

We traded our Class A gasser on a nice used Diesel pusher this spring. The price on the DP was about mid-way between low and avg NADA retail. The trade in allowance on our gasser was right at NADA low retail.

RE: Portable Smoker Ideas??

I also have a Green Mountain Davey Crockett. It has been travelling with us in the storage bays of 2 motorhomes over the past 4 years. It requires electric power, but will run on either 110V or 12V. I've had electric and propane in the past, but you can't beat a pellet smoker for convenience and ease of use to cook true wood smoke BBQ. https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/15355643_10104044306903570_179120957717854215_n.jpg?_nc_cat=109&ccb=2&_nc_sid=8bfeb9&_nc_ohc=WYxVCPAPWSQAX_3fMPB&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-2.xx&oh=b81ff7a5c652817ecb144ec816c9fc2c&oe=5FD32E75 height=300 width=400

RE: State Farm Insurance coverage for roof water damage

Several years ago I noticed storm damage to my motorhome roof when I looked out an upstairs window while parked at home. Took it to my dealer and they advised roof should be replaced, and I should contact my insurance company. Estimate was $6,000. One call to State Farm and they coordinated with the dealer. A couple weeks later SF cut the check for $6,000.

RE: Tax Right off

TXGearhead: Here you go - https://comptroller.texas.gov/taxes/sales/use-tax.php My employer in IL got dinged on this in an audit about 20 years ago. I was buying desktop computers from a vendor in another state for company use and we were not being charged sales tax. We got a tax bill equal to the IL sales tax rate.

RE: Tax Right off

I bought it out of state and didn't pay sales tax. Does your state have "use tax" for items purchased out of state? If so, that out of state purchase showing up on your tax filing might trigger a use tax bill.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

I've been using a Smoke Hollow Vector for several years and like the smoke box feature for grilling. It will also do a fair job as a BBQ smoker. But, i also carry a Green Mountain Davy Crockett smoker, and we bust it out if we really want BBQ.

RE: Fall color trip to north country

Just returned from Muskie fishing in northern Wisconsin. Did not take the Motorhome. Spent one night in a motel en-route then stayed in rented house on lake when we arrived, so don't know about campgrounds. Businesses required face coverings, and the one place we stopped for food was carryout only. No problems

RE: Carrying a Motorcycle with my 2000 Shasta Sprite?

just be sure to secure it well :) https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/20294107_10104853745227680_4407669896392251492_n.jpg?_nc_cat=100&_nc_sid=110474&_nc_ohc=1waQK8DEllgAX_UpKub&_nc_oc=AQn7m4FmZSzegxqmDsynrs9r4iMx0jgaoJiWxwlj0Enme28kMBHvk7Rx1iF7af5Pja0&_nc_ht=scontent-ort2-2.xx&oh=85151000c965af6e81513147c1b6baa2&oe=5F86D3E7

RE: Need hitch advice please.

Looking at the photo, is the adapter upside down? Isn’t the reinforced adapter the tow receptacle and the one you are plugged in an accessory receptacle for things like a bike rack?

RE: Teaching Your Spouse How to Pull a Trailer

Towing that little trailer will be barely noticeable. Backing the small trailer OP described behind an SUV when you can't see it in the mirrors will be a lot like backing that yard cart behind a garden tractor. And, from some of the suggestions offered, I'd buy a ticket to see some of those folks teach the wife to back a trailer. It would be a great show, I'm sure.

RE: RV & Auto Parts Return Experience

Back in the day, in heavy duty truck service, we could not install a fuel tank that came in damaged in shipment. It had to be replaced and the damaged tank cut up so it could not be used, and scrapped. It was a liability thing.

RE: Forty Foot Gasser

We had a 2010 Mirada on the F53 chassis with V10 for 5 years and liked it very much. It was right at 37 ft. The V10 is a high rev engine and it took a while to get used to it winding up past 4,000 rpm when it downshifted on hills. But it’s generally regarded as being pretty much bullet proof. We never had issues and would still be in it if we hadn’t stumbled into a Country Coach diesel. That being said, I would hope that the new platform they abandoned the F53 for would offer some advantages

RE: 32 Foot Class A vs 32 Foot Class C

Having had a Class C in the past and being currently in our third Class A, I would say that Class A's are more comfortable in general because there is more usable living space. Class A's generally have far more storage, both basement and inside. That's a big plus if you haul a load of stuff like we do. But, fewer Class A's have the overhead bunk, which can be a consideration if you need lots of sleeping space.

RE: What The Heck???

Engine stopped two minutes after started when working fine earlier; electrical burn smell from house batt area This is what would concern me at this point, given it appears the batteries were hooked up incorrectly

RE: Electric Patio Umbrella

Ouch! Yes, $855 is nuts. I just saw $143 before, which is the monthly payment plan, I guess.

RE: 50 AMP Tents

Lynnmor Keep fighting the good fight. And add to your list of injustices, those selfish, inconsiderate so-and-so’s with 28 ft no-slide 10 ft tall camper trailers who snap up the wide 40+ ft sites and leave the narrow 30 ft sites with low overhanging limbs that my 40 ft, triple slide, 13 ft tall class A will not fit into unoccupied. They too should show some “common decency”.

RE: Wheelbase factors

I’ve still got my old 1975 Bronco. Never pulled a camper with it, but it has drug boats and cargo trailers all over the country. It has a 92 inch wheelbase. It always towed just fine. And you can’t beat a shorter wheelbase for backing a trailer into tight spots. I don’t think a few inches either way will make any noticeable difference.
