RE: What are your opinions on the new Ekko ?

Too small for my family of 5, but if it were just my wife and I we would very seriously consider it. Not for the AWD, but the other features.

RE: Remember when tv

First color television: 1984. I was in high school. Before that we had no TV at all, but I would occasionally watch TV at friends' houses or my grandparent's house. Perhaps oddly, I got my first computer (which had a dedicated monitor that couldn't function as a TV) in 1981. I read a lot as a kid.

RE: If I ask the question "Why"...

Because you can, of course!

RE: Gulfstream BT Cruiser Quality

Gulfstream Forum, where you're more likely to find owners: https://www.gsowners.com/forums/ My current trailer is a Gulfstream. Generally speaking, they're a low cost producer, but the actual fit is usually okay. If you're handy, they're a generally good choice. E.g. You're likely to need to tighten up the plumbing yourself, and other relatively minor things of that nature that are generally easy for someone that knows they need to do that, to do. The cabinet framing is pressboard, but well put together. My trailer arrived with a bad water pump. I replaced it myself with a variable speed, much quieter, one. After my initial fixes of loosely assembled plumbing, replacing the water pump, and fixing the power cord holder, I've been happy with my trailer and it's served me and my family well. How happy you are with a GS is likely to depend on how willing and able you are to fix relatively minor issues yourself after you get it.

RE: My 2 favorite gifts as a youngster

1. IBM PC Jr. (I laughed my head off when Apple brought back the chicklet keyboard!) 2. Boombox and headphones With that combination, and my own purchase of Borland Turbo Pascal, I could rock out without bothering anyone while writing fairly simple applications. Yes, I'm a Software Engineer, and I still like listening to music while I code. :)

RE: What do you do with ash/coals ?

Actually, I dump the ash across the yard at home. It is good for the soil. I dumped it with out bag of trash in a pile next to the road. The campground staff does come daily to pick up trash from campers. I will get some large trash bags atleast to use next time. We use the ashes from our home fireplace in the flower beds. It's excellent free fertilizer. I've never camped at a campground that didn't have a fire ring, or that asked people to remove ashes ... Just not a common thing at state parks in the midwest I suppose.

RE: Reliability of older Class C’s?

IMO, the supposed dangers of being a woman traveling alone are being seriously overblown. The differences are not as big as men would sometimes like to think. However you end up doing it, I hope you enjoy the trip and have many lasting positive memories from it, and also from subsequent trips. I read some of this thread to my wife. She routinely went on long hiking and camping trips alone before we got married. She also wishes you a happy trip!

RE: Leveling a Class C?

There are also level apps for smartphones. Install one, calibrate it at home on a known-level surface, then when leveling the trailer/RV start the app and sit it on a surface that should be near level when you're done.

RE: Do we have to winterize if we use our RV during the winter?

PEX probably isn't going to burst, but the plastic elbows and other fittings will if they happen to have enough water in them.
atreis 11/12/20 06:37pm General RVing Issues

Has NYC or anywhere else posted data more than a flattening of cases? A multi week decline? World of difference between a plateau and declintion. NYT has pretty good graphs for all of the states, and yes, New York shows a decline in both new cases and mortality: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/us/new-york-coronavirus-cases.html

RE: slide outs, different kinds?

My parents' Winnebago Class A has the pair of tracks, mounted on the top and bottom side walls of the slide, and it has been nothing but trouble. They had to have repairs made to it twice now (replacement gears, supposedly redesigned to be better) and it's acting up again. Last fall my wife and I, and four other people in the campground, helped them get it back in (by pushing evenly on the outside) so that they could get home after it refused to work properly. It's only 2 years old. Their previous Class A had the cable sort and was trouble free for the decade they owned it.

RE: Mission Load Max Radial crowned like a bias ply.

Really surprised by the "DO NOT USE" posts... Unless their ground is amazingly flat, they'd probably be going no more than 20mph hauling firewood off road. Make sure there's a spare so you can change a flat, and go for it.

RE: which TT is best for full living?

Scamp, Casita, Escape, and other fiberglass egg type trailers are pretty good quality and lightweight. Escape (which is Canadian) also has insulation packages for 4 season use. They're not cheap, but do hold their value, and you'd have to be comfortable with the size. For full timing, 6K is really not a lot of weight, so you're going to have to make some pretty serious compromises.

RE: Are Travel Trailers selling at all right now?

In 2017 there were 153 million employed people in the US. 22 million is a heck of a lot (and it probably is higher), but there are still a lot of people working, so at the right, discounted, price there can still be buyers.

RE: WORX electric tools

EGO are excellent. I've also had pretty good luck with Sun Joe stuff, but prefer Ego's quick-charging batteries.

RE: Snowbird returning to Ohio

As I still drive out that way fairly often (and was over there yesterday) ... I-75 through Dayton: Very few cars, a few service vehicles, and LOTS of trucks. Even more trucks than usual, I think. Same on I-70 in IN and OH.

RE: Insanity in the grocery stores...

Why there will soon be tons of toilet paper “All the grocery stores are going to have pallets of toilet paper sitting in the aisles, and nobody is going to buy it, because who needs to buy toilet paper when you’ve got a year’s worth sitting in your garage?” :B Indeed. The great toilet paper glut of 2021. :)

RE: Northland TT's?

Gotta say ... Their website does not impress ... https://www.pacificcoachworks.com/ Scroll down. Apparently they're going to be showing 2017 models at a show in CA sometime soon. :D

Love the definition of a Sasquish. :D

RE: What is this

It's a very pretty wood table. Oh, and there's a strange metal thing that looks like it rotated something sitting on it. ;)
