RE: TT with its own motors!

Basically, it looks like a "solution" targeted at people who don't want to buy a vehicle which is capable of towing a trailer. Want a travel trailer, but don't want to give up your Maybach? No problem - We've got a trailer for you!If you own Maybach I believe your in Provost territory. LOL

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

I know the GMC dealer was glad to get rid of a brown truck I bought. They called it (stay around brown). I actually liked the brown metallic paint and had no trouble with resell. I will not purchase a red or black truck. If I order it in I order white. To hot for dark colors where I live.

RE: Nc hauler and ricatic

That's the trouble with us retired folks, father time catches up with us. As for Ricatic I can understand having issues with Ford. I went through something similar with GM after being a many generations GM owner. Regardless of what brand if you have a bad experience (or several) with a brand your not going to be enamored with their products.

RE: Views on when to/not to allow a dog to be social

LOL, I have Collies the Will Rogers of the dog world. To them strangers are friends they haven't met yet. My Collies get a lot of interaction in our travels. By the time Sawyer was 2.5 years he had been to 29 states. Very seldom do I travel without them. Sasha is a little more skittish and reserved. She waits for Sawyer to make first contact before she joins in. That said I'm kind of selective on what dogs I let them interact with.

RE: AARRGGHHHHH! Puppy biting!

I had not delt with puppies since I was a child until Sawyer and Sasha, (always adopted older rescue Collies). When Sawyer was a young pup he would play with some biting. If he bit a little to aggressive I would yelp like another young pup would do so he would learn to not bite as hard, worked. After 6 months I got Sasha so Sawyer was kept entertained by her. Hard to beleive Sasha is now 2 years old and Sawyer will be 3 in December. Kind of weird to think with all the Collies I've owned through the years my current two have about the same life expectancy as me.

RE: Puppy food suggestions

I use pedigree for the Collies along with people food. Tonight their meal will be chicken, pasta and broccoli with cheese. I'm having a salad, what's wrong with this picture. LOL At least they aren't eating steak... ;)Actually it's in thier diet but chuck steak no filet mignon.

RE: New F-150 Electric P/U

Well, generally speaking you're probably in the minority. Most people probably drive much less than 300 miles in a day on average. But, in reality, electric vehicles are still mostly a niche market, with commuter and urban vehicles mostly making up the numbers.Just got back from a one day 851 miles drive. The week before 632 miles in a day. So not convenient for some to go electric. When I get fuel I grab a sandwich & drink and use the restroom and back on the road in less then 10 minutes.

RE: VERY BAD ROOF/ Please help

... Based on what you posted I'll speculate that considering cost and effort replacing the trailer is the best option. X2 X3 X4

RE: F150 Lightening

... stagnant when you have a difference between high pressure and a low pressure you get isobars that enables wind to equalize the pressure difference. In large cities like LA this leads to smog because the air is stagnant. All hot air does is rise which doesn't power a wind turbine. See told yah, I'm no meteorologist and can't do isobars. But for ignorance, I do know that LA's smog is not caused by isobars but my inversion when the air is trapped by the surrounding high mountain ranges. And yes, LA (and CA for that matter) is global success story for pollution mitigation when states who are willing to poison their people by enticing them to move with no-regulation and big business friendly tax cuts. Yup, everybody happy except those poor souls.It's the pressure gradient difference that creates wind, isobars are just a indication of the wind on a map. I imagine those poor souls are quite happy with their choice. Texas gained 322,000 of these tax paying soul's last year.

RE: F150 Lightening

They have to much capacity tied to wind power. I think if a lot of new homes would utilize solar panels it would go a long ways in the sunbelt to elevate peak energy demand. When I build my new garage I will look at installing a large solar panel system.. I thought this lame excuse had been debunked when some wise guys showed states equally relying to renewals a side by side photos and videos comparing it to Texas. I'm no meteorologist but in my limited understanding, heat actually moves air to make those windmills go whom, whom, whom to kill birds and cause cancer to pips. That's obvious by your limited knowledge response. When a high pressure Dome sits over an area the air becomes stagnant when you have a difference between high pressure and a low pressure you get isobars that enables wind to equalize the pressure difference. In large cities like LA this leads to smog because the air is stagnant. All hot air does is rise which doesn't power a wind turbine.

RE: F150 Lightening

Yeah, satire is dead in the simplistic world where generators is comparable in scale to yuge generating plant and their management are too dumb not to take advantage of the shift in demand to build the capacities and the distribution grid to deliver it. Wait, Texas and Florida are failing on those and you two maybe right after all.:BI beleive Texas is having issues this week because of extremely hot weather and lack of wind. Texas also had a influx of 322,000 people last year alone. They have to much capacity tied to wind power. I think if a lot of new homes would utilize solar panels it would go a long ways in the sunbelt to elevate peak energy demand. When I build my new garage I will look at installing a large solar panel system.

RE: Still very tempting to buy my totaled TT back

My camper was totaled last week. Hail damage on one side. I bought it back. If the buy back is cheap enough go ahead and do it if that's what you want to do and salvage your season. Just be prepared if you have a few issues.

RE: Dog fence when sitting outside camper with dog

Some campgrounds have sprinkler systems and don't want anything stuck in the ground. Always best to ask the campground management first.

RE: Out of touch with reality

We were looking at a 16' X 32' portable building (built off site and hauled to my property) back in September. The dealer called me one morning and said to get in there and sign the papers and put a deposit on it right now because the price was going up sometime that day. I drove over and signed and paid half up front. At close of business that day the dealer got a company wide email that announced a 28% increase and a month later another 20% was added. The are still selling as fast as they can build them.I found that out with my 14'x40' Sturdi-built building. I got in before a 28% increase then a 10% surcharge this year. Wanted to get a new garage built this year but will hold off. I figure interest rates will rise on homes which should slow down building.

RE: Out of touch with reality

Bottom line, the number of RVs on the east coast or whatever fabulous deal you were able to get in December in Cleveland, when the weather s ucks and everyone but you is playing Santa Claus, not RVer, is not relevant at all to the OP's thread. He's not going to be able to bop out to Seattle, buy his truck and just go grab a travel trailer for anything less than a very high price, comparatively speaking to what was or is considered the "norm."Grit won't be making the trip after all. But it was a eye opener on the RV market. I wonder if used trailers are the affordable housing in your area that makes the market tight? In my area if you go to Southern MO or AR there are deals to be had. I agree with others in a year or two there will be a flood of used trailers when a lot of people find camping isn't there thing.

RE: Out of touch with reality

Lol, you be suprised at the cost of new also, if you can get one. The reality is stuff is expensive now, especially campers. If you wait a year or so, it will go back to normal, i hope!Actually gave up on used and was looking at new. A small camper I could of bought new for $12950. is now advertised for $21950. and that was just 2 years ago. With limited supply dealers are asking list. I think the only way price will come down is if there is a glut of used RV'S come on the market. With inflation and higher wages price will probably stay high.

RE: Out of touch with reality

I wouldn't buy a toothpick in this market.....insane.I've come to the same conclusion.

RE: Out of touch with reality

When you get home and resell the trailer you will probably benefit from high prices on the back end.In the midwest RV'S are less money then out West and used ones seem more plentiful.

RE: Out of touch with reality

I would drive down the coast to California and did not want to drive back to return it. I figured I could sell it when done with it. I would use motels but would rather check out camping areas. I will see if the trip materializes before I pursue it any further. If the border was open I would run up to Alaska but don't see that happening. A alternative would be go to Glacier and drop down to Yellowstone. I will see what a little Wolf pup (or equivalent) sells for and availability.
