RE: 5th wheel or TT?

With a Properly set up and matched TV and trailer, I still feel there is a better experience with the 5th wheel.... Having owned and towed both, the edge (IN MY EYES) has to go to the 5th wheel... for stability when trucks pass... for ease in setting up and breaking camp... As far as backing, once you get the hang of the pivot change on the 2, I found that the fiver was easier, BUT I also drove a BIG RIG for many years before my RV's . . Either way, were ALL CAMPING ! ! ! ! :B

Progressive RV Insurance

Well, I cannot say enough GOOD things about Progressive Insurance .. Some of you may have followed my other posts showing how a storm came in and dropped a huge tree onto my camper while it was in my driveway.. The Tree fell on Saturday April 20th . . The adjuster came that Thursday the 25th.. He would have totaled it at that point, but because of the cost it needed a 3 tier approval. Wednesday May 1st was the day we were notified it was in fact totaled.. Friday May 3rd there was a check in the mailbox..We picked up our new Redwood the following Friday, May 10th.. Within 3 weeks, we went from BLISS with our beloved Redwood.. to devastated from the storm, and back to BLISS with a new 2020.. Progressive Insurance was AWESOME ! ! !

RE: Sticker price vs MSRP on trucks

Yesterday I purchased a 2019 F-250 Platinum (Black) for 68,500 out the door... which I believe is a pretty good deal. What I did was shop around using the internet and found the lowest internet price I could find within 500 miles. Using that price I then negotiated with a couple of sales guys at different dealerships within 100 - 200 miles to get the lowest price possible. I then took that price, which I had in an email, to local dealers giving them a chance to match or beat it so that I didn't have to drive far and luckily one did just that. I'm not 100% sure that I got a smoking deal but I worked my butt off to get what I did so I am telling myself that I pretty much stole the truck from 'em.:B IF it is a deal that YOU are happy with, Then it is a smoking hot deal ! ! You are all that matters Enjoy that new truck, Safe Travels, Happy Camping !

RE: Sticker price vs MSRP on trucks

Cash sale of a new vehicle runs 20-35% less than sticker, value of your trade in much less. Awesome, the 2019 F350 SRW 6.7 King Ranch I have been looking at, with the sticker of $82000.00, can be had for $52000.00? I'll be there when they open. Get me one at that price! I’ll even pay you $5k for your troubles! I'll take one as well.... Been thinking that I will jump when the 2020 guides come out..at 35% off, I may buy 2 ! !

RE: What's up with RV names??

They are ONLY NAMES... nothing should be taken personal about them... Call them what you like, if the floor plan fits, winner-winner chicken dinner ! I personally never walked away from a sale because I did not like the name of the brand... So they're only names and we shouldn't take anything personal there? Well that was some great insight there. :S well,,, tha'ts my opinion ( just like the rest of this forum) .. I, myself would not walk away from a deal because the name... Maybe I have thicker skin??? Or get the humor of the topic here?? Happy Camping I had way to much coffee and was being bit sarcastic there. My apologies. Good thing we don't take the names personally. I'm short and have a Leprechaun. No worries...... I am large ( not tall) and have a Redwood,,?? kind of fits ! safe travels

RE: Your experience with a Dually vs SRW hauling 5ver

I tow a 16,500# GVW fiver behind my "15" SRW and do mot get pushed around, at all... Been in some pretty gusty winds as well with no issues. At no time do I feel that the fiver is PUSHING my SRW around bends,, corners.. I am JUST over my 11,500# GVW, but under on my axle and rear tires. I have stated this MANY TIMES HERE.... I am a weekend warrior, as soon as I start going more, Its a DRW for me.. ONLY because I would want more padding on the numbers and not be at max capacity all the time. 90% of my trips are within 2 hrs of the house, with 1 trip down 95 from PA to Florida or Myrtle Beach a year..

RE: Keyless locks

Mine works fine with the screen door. Mike I am so very happy for you. But not all eLocks work that well with all screen doors. You are truly one of the lucky people in this world. my RV lock fit my 20019 KZ fifth wheel with the the screen door.. My Bauer RV locks fit BOTH my 2016 Redwood fifth wheel, and my 2020 Redwood fifth wheel, BOTH with the screen door

RE: Keyless locks

what happens when, not if, the keyless entry fails? the ONLY way I'd ever have them is if the door also had a traditional lock and key to use in case of failure or in place of the keyless entry. I have been using a Bauer NE Keyless lock for 5 years.... I ALWAYS have a key stashed somewhere that we can get ti if need be... Never needed to go there.. I change the batteries at the start of every camping season... I also use the better batteries and have never had an issue.. My new RV had a regular Bauer lock, I just purchased another Bauer NE to replace that.. They work that well..

RE: Price per mile

I was just quoted $1.90 per mile... + $105.00 Toll fee to move a fifth wheel from Eastern PA to Indiana and back again. I received 5 different quotes, and they were all in the same price range..
