RE: NuCamp Avia- what others compare overall?

Yea, we may wait until spring. Looking for a truck now. Good Lord, that's a whole nother ball of wax of opinions. I've been a new car dealership service advisor for 22 years. If there's one thing I know, every single one of them have issues. It's a matter of what kind of issues you can put up with. I drove a loaner Chevy 1500 Z71 and couldn't believe how bouncy the front end was. A year ago, I test drove a 2019 F150 crew cab 4x4 3.5 EB and couldn't believe the body shudder and crazy upshifting 10 speed. We had a 2014 and 2013 F150 crew 4x4 3.5 EB and those trucks were far better to drive. I think we're going to go test drive the 2020 Ram 1500 and the old bodystyle 1500 Express Warlock. I'm still trying to find something that is comparable to the Nucamp for less money. Ideally, we would like to have chairs and a dinette, but this one really impresses.Best time to purchase a camper is when demand is low in the dead of winter. Spring is when everyone wants one and dealers are less likely to cut a deal. Same with vehicles if you can purchase between Christmas and New years they will often even go into dealer hold back to move the unit so they don't have to pay taxes on it.

RE: Wolf Pup

Didn't you know; that's the norm GuySadly that's correct. It's nothing like the automotive world. Agree with fix it yourself if you have the skils and save yourself a headache.

RE: 2020 vs 2021 Model

I would knock 35% off MSRP and make that offer. Then be prepared to increase but I would not go beyond 31 or 32% off MSRP. Sounds like you are dealing for a fifth wheel. Dealer #2 is already at 33.2% off but it's a year older. I would want a 2021 model if it were me. I'm not sure that I would want a pandemic period manufactured model suspecting that quality is even less than the questionable build quality of RV's built at any other time. FWIW, I just bought a brand new 2019 model boat and saved a lot. There is no way that I could have afforded the current year model which BTW is identical. I hear that dealers are getting new trailers with missing items, that the manufacture can not source, but ship them out anyway.RV manufacturers have always done that. There not going to hold up production for a missing item. Neighbor was a supervisor at a RV plant. If a unit didn't have cabnets they might install them in the parking lot or put them in the trailer for the dealer to install. Nothing new. They had a quota to get done in a week no exceptions.

Ford electric truck

On the upcoming Ford electric truck why couldn't they offer a bed cover made up of solar panels? On commuter vehicles that sit in the sun for 8 hours every day it would surely extend the range?

RE: Flashing rope light

One of the sad occasions was when Beaker street was replaced by disco. Anyone remember the AM station out of Little Rock KAAY? From 1966 to 1972

RE: Flashing rope light

Certainly better than a spinning glass disco ball with very bright colored spot lights throwing sparkles thru the trees in every camp site around. Yeah, saw that at a state park in Arkansas. :S Ooooh, I want one and some of them sparkely rope lights.I think I've got some strobe lights left over from Halloween:W Cool, I think i still have the Saturday Night Fever sound track somewhere. But, do you still have you White Leisure Suit and platform shoes ??If they actually did do you think it would still fit?

RE: 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid

Isn't the battery/electric motor more of a temporary boost for like climbing a hill or passing another vehicle?

RE: Stored diesel question

I had one Diesel truck that sat for 6 years and fired right up on the old Diesel. It was treated before storing with a anti- algae treatment.

RE: Transplanting large trees

Not near that size but had a couple of maple trees someone had planted under the power lines. A person at work had a new house and wanted them for the front and back yard. They came in with a tree spade and moved both trees to his house and took the dirt from his holes and put back in my yard. The trees were about 20' tall and the tree person said those were the largest trees they had moved. Both trees lived and did well. Most people won't have the equipment to move a tree the size your talking about. Hurst castle moved a extremely large oak but the cost was phenomenal. Let us know what you find out.

RE: What ever happened to AZPops

I asked that a few years ago and got a feeling that he was not doing well by his last posts. I remember him having several dog urns from his departed pets. I had sent some pm's that went unanswered. Thanks for letting us know Burb man.

RE: 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid

The hybrid will be able to tow up to 12,700 pounds and haul up to 2,120 pounds, Ford says.The article said (14,000# tow rating a 800# increase over the 2020 model. This model is also capable of hauling a 3325 payload). Just what I read the in news so take it for what's it worth.

2021 Ford F-150 hybrid

Seen it can tow up to 14,000# and the electric motor can act as a generator producing between 2.4-7.2 kilowatts depending on configuration. Sounds like a good match for RV owners.

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

Same thing could be said for a major breakdown or accident on the road. If it happens to me I could fly home and get another vehicle or purchase one on the road. I don't worry about what if's life is to short to think of every possible thing that could go wrong. Had a car the engine blew up in 40 years ago about 1500 miles from home. Car dealer sold me another car hooked onto the trailer and was on my way in 24 hours.

RE: We are Drowning in our...

If the above is all true, and litter is a recent problem, why did they have that famous anti-littering commercial in 1971? That's 50 years ago, so the problem then would have been our parents. So the problem is their parents' lack of parenting skills? Basically, people are slobs, full stop. 1971 Keep America Beautiful campaign Iron Eyes Cody Course Iron Eyes was an Italian ( Espera Oscar de Corti ) Can't trust anythingOld Iron Eyes made a impression on me as a kid. My parents were bad about throwing trash out the car window and I can remember getting after them as a youngster. Usually you didn't do that to my Dad, but deep down he knew I was right so he didn't say anything.

RE: We can breathe again!!

We have had high altitude haze all week from the fires out west as well. I hope they get some rain for some relief from the fires. My nieces son is a firefighter in CA and is exhausted.

RE: We are Drowning in our...

I throw out about 1/2 Grocery bag every other day And I throw it INTO a proper trash container. We use them for the small trash cans in house....bathroom , bedroom, craft room, TV room Free trash bagsI do the same thing haven't bought a trash bag in 35 years. Bonus I can throw out the garbage everyday so no smell. As far as trash beside the highway I see a lot less now then I did growing up. Even most of the people walking their dogs through my neighborhood pick up after them. There was a family at the seasonal campground that trashed the area around their cabin. When they got through with a plate of food or soft drink they just dropped the remains on the ground. The campground owner made them clean up the site. Funny they also wanted to take out a privately owned pontoon boat. Campground owner arranged to have a private owner take them around the lake for a very high fee. They also parked in the middle of the road instead of the parking area. They blocked the access road to my site. I had them move their car, the next day they did the same thing. It was the closest I came to pushing a car into the lake with my truck. I don't think anyone was disappointed when they left. Some people have no respect for anyone but themselves and I don't know how you change that behavior. Incidents like this are very rare but stand out because of the rarity.

RE: PRICE DROPS coming on new GM small diesels

Most of the people I know trade a vehicle off before 100k miles. I'm the exception. Being available in a burb will be interesting how many order them.
