RE: Places near Vegas Or Needles Ca ?

There are some BLM areas around Lake Havasu and Bullhead City in AZ. The Riverside casino in Laughlin is allowing RVers to park in the parking lot even though the casinos are closed. Don't forget this area is going to start getting warm soon and it may be nice to have FHU to run the AC.

RE: AZ Governor Statement on RV Travel during Stay At Home order

The AZ governor has his priorities right. He deemed golf courses as essential businesses and can remain open. :S Actually, he deemed exercise and physical activity as essential. Here's the paragraph from his declaration: "Engaging in outdoor exercise activities, such as walking, hiking, running, biking or golfing, but only if appropriate physical distancing practices are used." I'm not a golfer, but it seems like social distancing would not be difficult to maintain. Sitting next to someone in a rented golf cart and using common area facilities such bathrooms isn't my idea of social distancing. Coincidentally, I just received an email from my local motorsports dealer announcing they are considered an essential business and they are open.

RE: New Mexico State Parks Suspend Overnight Camping

Coincidentally, I started to plan a trip for early April that would have included camping a few nights in campgrounds in western New Mexico. I guess I'll have to stay in RV parks if I proceed with my plans.

RE: Private Seller - Financing

The OP is looking for financing suggestions, not lessons on how to spend his money. It's irritating and condescending when some posters feel the need to chime in just to bash other posters for financing their RV purchases or buying new ones. Without those two options there would be no RV industry as we know it.

RE: Register M/H in Calif

I would try to keep it registered in Az.--Ca. fees are extremely high as you probably know. Not true. AZ registration fees are almost twice as high as Ca's. I moved from CA to AZ and my vehicle registration fees practically doubled.

RE: Old National Trails Road

...you can drive leisurely.... Speaking of … I'm looking at your maps and am curious how 'tis you made it to Virginia and S.C. but missed N.C.? Teach The map represents more than one trip. I need to update the map to reflect additional states and Canadian provinces. The only states we haven't visited are Iowa, Nebraska and Alaska. I also need to add the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario.

RE: Old National Trails Road

Some sections in CA and AZ are in good condition and can be driven in any vehicle. Some sections in AZ can be very picturesque and you can drive leisurely since there isn't really any traffic in these sections.

RE: EZ-Pass. New York or Massachusetts account?

I went trough a couple of toll roads in NY without a pass last spring and I received the bill in the mail. The bill wasn't a fine, just the cost of the tolls.

RE: Best area to boondock in Quartzsite for two nights

Thanks, everyone. I guess where we stay will depend on finding a suitable spot in the recommended area.

Best area to boondock in Quartzsite for two nights

Hi folks, we are planning on going to Quartzsite on January 24 for two nights with another couple (2 RVs) and we will be taking our SxS with us. Any recommendations in where to camp and ride in BLM land for two days? We will be coming down south on Hwy 95 from Parker. We prefer an area that's not too far from town since we will be driving our SxS to town. Thanks in advance.

RE: THOR Motor Coach

I think you will get many views on this MFG,but they must be pretty sturdy because they are used a lot in the Rental Market not only El Monte RV uses them but also are the ones that are made for Cruise America are made by THOR. Rental fleets buy on price, not quality. They buy from whichever RV company is willing to give them the best deal. They don't care about sturdiness or longevity since they don't keep them for long.

RE: How do you summer travel?

No overnight Wallydocking for us if the temps are high enough that warrant using the AC. We gladly pay to stay in an RV park so we can relax and sleep without having to hear the sound of annoying generators.

RE: Motorhomes on Mercedes Chassis

Speculation has nothing to do with it: The poor rear wheel spacing width-to-coach-height ratio is real - just take a look at one. Then compare that visual ratio to, say, the visual ratio of a Winnebago 22M Class C built on a Ford E450 chassis ... which one would you rather be unexpectedly caught in during high cross winds in the the Western U.S.? The answer should be obvious. ... and BTW ... a stiffer suspension cannot of course change this ratio - which is based on pure physical measurments. Some of us don't need it to have "already happened" in order to try and be proactive at purchase time -> to ensure that it never ever would happen to us. Unless you own one or driven one in high winds you're speculating. I have owned a Minnie Winnie 22R on a Ford E450 chassis and currently own a Winnebago Navion 24V on the Sprinter chassis and have experienced severe wind conditions on both, and both units handled the severe winds much better than expected.

RE: Flying J and Pilot moving toward B20 diesel?

Thanks for posting the list. As I suspected, all but one of the stations in CA now sell B20. In AZ, only 3 stations show B5 and the rest don't say the type of diesel being sold.

Flying J and Pilot moving toward B20 diesel?

I have noticed the Flying J and Pilot stations I patronized in AZ and CA have switched to B20 diesel. Is this a national trend? I also noticed the selling price is the same as nearby competitors selling regular diesel. Based on a quick internet check, it seems the cost of B20 diesel is cheaper so retailers like Flying J and Pilot are making more money selling the stuff. The switch to B20 by some of these stations have created a bit of a problem for me when traveling since I have a Mercedes Sprinter moho and I can only use B5 diesel. Instead of seeking the aforementioned brands when I travel, I now look for regular gas stations since all of them seem to sell regular diesel. A side benefit of not using the truck stops next to the interstate highways, the price of diesel is usually cheaper when buying a short distance from the interstate highways.
