RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

I am of the mindset that a business should make absolutely as much profit as they possibly can, legally, morally and ethically. It all contributes to the overall economy. Make more money, expand your business and hire more employees. Why should Apple make more than 700 percent profit on iPhones? Why put a cap on what a business or dealer can make? How are we to determine what is "fair".. Do we vote on it? Does the Government decide? Mike

RE: Need advice

If I have a serious issue I need help with, you can bet I will be checking early and often to see if someone can help. Yes, it can happen, and could be true, but... Posting once and then sitting back to watch the furball is generally a hoax. Maybe the OP's laptop fried when he was reading the threads and trying to stop the leak in real time. Water damage to the laptop. Mike

RE: I-95 Death Row takes 3 more.

100% of my accidents in the last 20 years, of which I have had 9, maybe 10, were the fault of Odocoileus virginianus.......the bastards.That's a lot. That's what I was thinking. Compared to my zero in 20 years. I must live a charmed life. Glad I don't have that kind of karma. Mike

RE: I-95 Death Row takes 3 more.

There is no such thing as an accident. Stupid assertion/comment. Mike

RE: Help finding fresh date Tires

If they are in stock, should be an easy check. Buy popular tires, and likely you'll have fresher tires. Try to save 50 cents by buying a cheap brand, probably not as likely. Mike

RE: Camping World/The Profit

Most RV warranties are a year, two max. If you're buying a used RV, highly likely (I would say 100% but someone will probably disagree) that the factory warranty is expired or will not transfer. So, makes zero difference if warranty work was performed or not. You won't have a factory warranty to worry about it breaking again. And if you buy from a dealer, and pay the extended warranty, then you will be covered by that. So, again, in the end, makes no difference if warranty work was performed. Mike

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

If this site represents a microcosm of the RVing society as a whole, then I submit to you socializing is anything but dead. The sheer percentage of folks posting here who are the socializing type would suggest that there's RV block parties going on at every campground in the good ole USA. I can tell you that when we are out RVing, we are rarely at the campground, except evenings. I wonder how many people assume we are holed up in our RV. We carpool when RVIng with our friends, so sometimes my truck is at camp, sometimes it's not. Mike

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

If you are finding reasons to be unhappy now, and are buying a larger trailer, the answer to your subject question "Will I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck" is a flat out no. You won't get it out of your mind, and will always have that question lingering in your mind. Mike

RE: Heave-Ho

Camper for saleā€¦ old useless propane fridge is going back in to help with the sale since people don't know what they need at first. I guess the reason he thought you were putting in an old non-working propane fridge, was because of this statement. Mike

RE: Substancial deposit required

I have found, like others, that it varies. Texas state park I go to requires full payment at time of booking. Georgia state parks, I believe is one night (as pointed out). I always make sure I know the details before I commit, to include cancellation fee. I don't think any campgrounds make a nickel off pre-payment, but even if they do, why should I care? Mike

RE: Prepping RV for private sale

I know alot of people will not disclose the flaws, and just figure if the buyer doesn't notice, it's their fault. I personally hope you disclose the issues. I would. I also would probably have tried to figure out a way to fix the issue, while I was still using it, rather than have it tarped for two years. I would replace the ladder. That's two issues, and it would make me wonder what other things are wrong... and I would dig deep investigating. Mike

RE: Attention Grand Design Owners...

Have a GD Reflection 5er. Very happy with it thus far. Owned just about a year (year next month). Have heard GD customer service is great, but have not had a reason to test that out. Mike

RE: How To Calculate Tow Capacity

GVWR pretty universally means Gross Vehicle Weight RATING.. Which translates to the max weight the vehicle can weigh with all the cargo, passengers, etc... Yes, so you need to know the empty weight. I would have thought that would be available on a sticker, like trailers. Is there an abbreviation on the sticker that says UVW? Which stands for unloaded vehicle weight? Mike

RE: It could have went bad!

I've only been RVing for about 4 years. Fortunately, I have not yet had one of those moments. I'll have to bookmark this thread just to remind me once in a while to take my time and double check everything. Coming home and finding the pins sitting on the table would freak me out. Mike

RE: Cash Vs. Finance

Definitely overthinking and overreacting. When you took out a loan for your current RV, did you sign the loan paperwork before you did inspection and took possession? If so, big mistake. if not, then same process. Same basic process cash or financing. Just give them the check at the appropriate time and avoid signing all the papers I don't understand the drama.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

People are afraid of each other in the current culture. We are taught that using the wrong pronoun is a federal offense. Political views have become catalysts for explosive reactions. It is just not worth it to some to risk having their camping experience ruined by a confrontation. Back in the day, it seems to me, people were more interested in finding common ground. Now so many are "spring-loaded" to the defensive position. JMHO I think this is a huge part of the current culture. Hell, I just found out that it's no longer "ok" to flash the "ok" sign. So, now if I flash the okay sign, Im now a racist. Holy ****. Speaking of socializing. Think we can agree most of us are part of this club. Maybe we should start using this sign instead of waviing.

RE: 5er hitch options RAM MegaCab w/6'4" bed - Solitude 310GK

Another vote for the Pullrite Auto Slider OE Puck mount. Pricey, but worth it in my opinion. I love mine, and don't ever have to wonder if it will or will not hit the cab of the truck. Only thing I wish is that the capture plate mounted to the hitch, like the Demco and not to the Kingpin. But that's not a big deal really. It's a heavy hitch... 300lbs, but worth it in my opinion. Mike Great way to go. Although I have a friend that got a bit tired of messing with it, they are a bit fussy about that angle you are at getting then hooked up ,and unhooked. They don't don't come undone he said at too much of an angle. He went to the Andersen rail mount seems to be a bit more happy with that. I've heard that, but haven't experienced it personally yet Admittedly not as easy to pull out of the truck as other hitches. But, I lift mine out (as necessary), by just leaving it hooked up to the king pin. Then, I lower it down onto a rolling table and roll it into my garage. Mike
