RE: Camping or Glamping?

I glamp, RV, camp or whatever you want to call it. I enjoy my comfort and not afraid to say it. Im opposite of Bigredcav1 on several of his items. But, we do agree on some. I do enjoy state/federal parks far more than any RV park. Only use RV park as last resort. Im conservative, pack a gun legally, am a pro-life christian but understand not everyone shares my views. I served 22 years in the military so we, as Americans can have the freedom to choose, freedom of religion (or none if so desired), and freedom to call it glamping or whatever you want to call it.

RE: Anyone ever use one of these

Note that it is illegal to transport refilled 1lb bottles on most US and Canadian ferries. Where do you dream this information up at? From bcferries.com website Propane Tanks Propane valves must be closed and sealed with the tags issued at the ticket booth, and the cylinders must be upright and firmly secured, to prevent tipping. Service repair vehicles may carry one 25kg cylinder. RVs are permitted a maximum of two cylinders of not more than 25 kg each (50L water capacity each), provided they are connected to a regulator, and secured in or on the vehicle. Recreational vehicles may carry a third cylinder no larger than 15 kg (30L water capacity) for BBQ needs. Passenger vehicles are permitted to carry one cylinder Bar-B-Q size (commonly called a 20 pound cylinder). SAFETY ALERT: "The brass valve in a propane cylinder will be damaged if it comes in contact with anhydrous ammonia. This deterioration will lead to cracking of the valve body or its components and can ultimately result in a violent, unexpected expulsion of the valve from the cylinder, causing personal injury or death." See full Safety Alert for more details. Where,oh were, does it say ANYTHING about 1lb containers, much less refilled 1lb containers. Mike

RE: Snow: how deep is too deep for camping?

Not trying to be picky, but your original question was what is the deepest snow I can reasonably expect to camp in, and the question now is not a question but asking folks for their experiences in deep snow. Having said all that, I would agree with your original assessment. If the snow is deeper than the axles on the trailer, I would say that's too deep. Friend of mine just got back from Cali and said the pass over 50 to Nv was chains only. I think it would be neat to camp in a little snow, as long as the trailer was insulated enough. I've driven in snow a fair amount in my early adult years, but have never towed a trailer in it. Not sure how I'd like that. Mike

RE: Anyone ever use one of these

Thanks for the responses. Bobbo - the double post is a result of this website and it's service temporarily unavailable issues. I like the 1lb bottles as I have two different grills and a smoker that use them and while I can convert them to use larger bottles, it's just easier to carry a few of the small tanks with me.

RE: Ram 2500 Payload

If it is a 16K GVWR 5er, then yes, highly likely OP will exceed RGAWR. That's DRW territory for sure. My 5er GVWR is just under 15K (14,995). Loaded I weight 13880 and Im 300lbs under RGAWR (over payload by 10 lbs). If it's a 14K GVWR he should be okay with a 1 ton SRW. I can't imagine that Vanleigh being only 14K max weight. Mike

RE: I am TRYING to buy and RV from you all. Not easy!

I now have to deal with the fine gent who has 3 weeks experience selling RVs. ...and we are trying to buy an RV from you all that has an MSRP of greater than $90K! Not going to do that from a trainee. I dunno...sounds to me like you weren't going to deal with this salesman regardless of him knowing what gate to walk in from. Glad you got it sorted out though. Hope you get the trailer you want. Mike

RE: I am TRYING to buy and RV from you all. Not easy!

Doesn't sound to me like you've even given the new salesman a chance. You automatically don't want to deal with him "because he's new". He doesn't need to know the product - you've decided. He just needs to honor the $500 less than competing offer. Even a new guy should be able to handle that, assuming it's legit. Mike

RE: TT depreciation per year according to kbb? Cargo trailers

So you want to justify low ball bid on a cargo trailer based on the depreciation of an RV? Apple - meet orange. Just offer what you are willing to pay. If they take it, great, if not, oh well. Mike

RE: Moving up to a Ram 2500.. but have some weight questions..

Hello again, Question: Is the mfgr being misleading, or is this RV "designed" to be pulled with a 15% kingpin hitch ratio? Question: Why do the combined axle ratings so often *exceed* the tow vehicle's gvw? Question: Before I purchase the truck, how do I reconcile these two vastly different outcomes? ..dane My input, 1 by 1. 1. No, mfgr is not being misleading. They are telling you the specific weight information, for the RV, in an unloaded capacity. They have no insight into how the thousands of us will load it. Depending on the configuration, alot of weight can end up on pin after loaded. How are they to predict how you will load your trailer? 2. Because there are more factors than JUST axle weight rating when determining payload. Simple fact is, the 3/4 ton trucks are artificially capped at 10K for taxes and licensing purposes. There are differences, as pointed out, in suspension (coil vs leaf) and probably a few other parts. But for most part, they use the same parts for both classes of vehicles (except DRWs of course). 3. It is totally up to you, and the value you put on the different weight ratings. That is why this argument ALWAYS, repeat ALWAYS ends up in disagreement. And why you will never get a unanimous opinion (note, I said opinion). Even with my 1 ton, my weights, with truck loaded to go, RV loaded to go, I am 20 lbs OVER my payload, but 300lbs UNDER my axle weight rating. My hitch weighs 300lbs by itself. Im probably running 23-24% pin weight, because I've got a full basement of "stuff" and most of that ends up on the pin. I added a different mattress that weighs probably 50 lbs more than the mattress that came with the unit. That's all pin weight. So, it adds up quickly. Am I worried about it? No... For 5er's, I am more focused on pin weight and the rear GAWR. Less concerned about payload. I am with the others who say, if you plan to tow a 5er, and planning to buy an SRW truck, just go with 1 ton and be done. I am a two timer (had a 2500, then bought a 3500). Fortunately for me, my 2500 Ram Cummins Diesel I basically broke even selling ($1500 less than I paid after 2 years) and I got a screaming deal on a new 2017 (in late 2018), with only 26 miles. FWIW.

RE: Salesman trying to talk me out of a Class C

Your handle answers the question quite succinctly. Damdifino. Get what YOU want, not what the salesman wants you to have, or what we THINK you might want. Mike

RE: New Jayco Pinnacle

My 5er loaded is just under 14K lbs. 3060 lb pin weight. I have about 300lbs of axle weight remaining. So, your choice with a weight of 14K dry and 3K pin weight dry, you're in DRW territory for sure. Mike

RE: How to calculate the cost of RVing

Yes, the cost of the depreciation is easy to figure out, and to most people it makes us look like dumb lousy money managers. If it's true, I don't want to hear about it. I agree.. I don't care how others spend their money, and I don't care about others opinions on how I spend mine. Mike
