RE: Big Brother- Tag on your TC?

If your rear license plate was covered you'll probably never get a bill in the mail. Like you, we were also in Eastern Canada this spring and drove through a couple of toll roads in NY. AZ also has rear plates only and I have one of those fake vanity front AZ plates on the moho that reads RD TRIP. My two distinctly different plates probably confounded the NY road folks because it took a while before I got a bill in the mail for both tolls totaling $26.

RE: Late check out

We often arrive early to campgrounds and RV parks and most of the time we are allowed in. However, we always leave before checkout time.

RE: ..............

Outrageous they don't want to send help on a holiday when many people are traveling.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

How Germany is experimenting with how to charge EVs without overly burdening the existing grid. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-autos-germany-charging-analysis/can-power-napping-solve-electric-car-charging-challenge-idUSKCN1VH0JY

RE: Small Class C - Mercedes Diesel vs. Chevy Gasoline?

You won't find a walk around queen bed in the new MB based Views/Navions. The prior years had a 24G model that had a rear slide out that had a "semi-walkaround" queen bed. Search for Winnebago View/Navion 24G - there might be a "gently used" one out there somewhere. Don't fear the Sprinter. It's a solid chassis/drive train option, if you can get over the diesel thing. The only GMC options will be the so called "Super Cs" and they're diesels, too. Much larger/longer than your preferred length. Winnebago still offers the Navion 24G model with its "walkround" bed. https://www.rvtrader.com/New-Winnebago-Navion-24g/rvs-for-sale?make=Winnebago%7C2307464&model=NAVION%7C764964403&trim=24G%7C32926&condition=N

RE: Minnie Winnie or Fuse/View?

Owned a Minnie Winnie 22R on a E450 chassis. Great 24 foot C class and got about 8 MPG. Currently own a Winnebago Navion 24V on a MB Sprinter chassis. Great C class with a larger and more open cab that gives the illusion of being in a small A class. Considerably more expensive than a Minnie Winnie on a Ford Chassis. I get about 14 MPG. You can't go wrong with either one of these units.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Nowhere did I say to add another vehicle to the existing household fleet. In case I wasn't clear, I meant an ICE vehicle can be replaced with an EV for short commutes and errands. It goes without saying this scenario won't work for everyone.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

Many households have 2 or more vehicles, and having an EV for short commutes or running errands makes a lot of sense, in my opinion. And just like some of you here that are always preaching about buying used RVs versus new, you can do the same with EVs and hybrids. Prices on 3 year-old EVs and hybrids: 2016 Nissan Leaf with 84 to 107 mile range - $10,991 in Autotrader 2016 Tesla Model S with 208 to 315 mile range - $44,600 in Autotrader 2016 Chevy Volt hybrid with 53 mile battery range and unlimited on gas - $15,697 in Autotrader. My personal choice would be the Chevy Volt since you can have the best of both worlds and not have to suffer from range anxiety. Too bad GM killed it.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

An EV makes sense for many households. "According to ABC News, the average American drives 16 miles to work each way, with a daily commute totaling nearly an hour round trip." How Far Do Americans Drive to Work on Average?

RE: Thinking of a Mercedes Class C

I owned a C on a Ford chassis and now own a C with the MB Sprinter chassis. They are both good, in their own ways. You can't directly compare them to each other as they are apples and oranges. It's up the individual to determine which is one is best for his/her needs. Many of the Sprinter mohos can tow 5,000 lbs.

RE: Jay Leno predicts demise of vehicles running on gas.

and when you sell/trade in your old EV do you think that the value won't be lessened by the loss of value in your battery system? What do you think happens to ICE vehicles? Many of them lose 50% or more of their value in three years. Too bad GM killed the Chevy Volt. It offered the best of both worlds. You could run on electric power for 50 miles, which is more than adequate as a grocery-getter or commuter car, or drive across the country using gasoline without having range anxiety.

RE: Portable Solar Smoking

I used a 120 watt suitcase kit with the controller attached to the back of one panel for years and I connected the batteries to the controller after I had the panels set up. I never had a problem and never heard anyone mention having to hook up the batteries before the panels were exposed to sunlight.

I'm on my third Winnebago and never had the roof leak, let alone blow off.

RE: Glacier National Park

We got in last year at peak time. What saved us was having a small moho.

RE: Sprinter Carrying Capacity

When we were looking for a Sprinter based moho we encountered some units with extremely low carrying capacity. The Forest River products (the Isatas were the worst) had very low CCCs and the Thors were only marginally better. We ended up buying a 2019 Winnebago Navion 24V with 1,368 pounds of carrying capacity and 5,000 pound towing capacity.
