RE: Buying from private party in California

So you're saying that if I buy a car from a CA dealer, and I live in another state and will register it in that state, I pay CA sales tax as well as tax in my home state??Yes if you take delivery in CA. Dealer would have to ship the vehicle out of CA to avoid CA sales tax. Usually your home state will give credit for out of state sales tax when you register. You don't pay sales tax twice, but you may have to pay registration twice if you decide to register the vehicle in your name in CA just to drive it home. As stated before, don't overthink this too much since it's a private party sale. Register the vehicle and pay the sales tax in AZ when you get home. As someone else stated, if you purchase a new vehicle in CA and don't want to register it in CA or pay the CA sales tax, you must take delivery outside the state. When I purchased my new moho in CA, the dealer hired a driver (the wife and I were passengers) to drive the moho to the AZ stateline, where we were met by notary public arranged by the dealer that notarized documents showing we took possession of the moho outside CA. In another CA purchase, I bought a new utility trailer in CA but I had to pay the CA sales tax since I took possession of it in CA. When I registered it in AZ I did not have to pay sales tax again since the tax was paid in CA.

RE: Flaming Gorge to Page Az. Monument Valley, Escalante NP

Just got back from our annual road trip, and Lake Powell was our last stop before getting home. We stayed at the Wahweap Campground within the Lake Powell Recreation Area with full hookups. The sites are fairly well spaced out in Loop B, where we stayed. Most sites are drive-through and Wifi was very good. We had a great site with lake views and the nightly rate was $68. You can get into the recreational area for free if you have the yearly or senior pass. I highly recommend renting a boat in the lake or take a tour, if offered. Just south of Page, there is the famous Colorado River horseshoe bend. Years ago, there was a dirt parking lot adjacent to the highway where you could park for free and take a look at the river, but now the govt built a paved parking lot and there is a fee to park. I'm assuming the yearly or senior pass is valid there as well. A couple of years ago, we overnighted in Monument Valley, on our way to Moab, and stayed at a KOA. When we were planning our trip this year, we thought about going through that area again and we called Goulding's. We were told the tours in Indian lands were closed due to the pandemic. On our way to Lake Powell from Colorado, we drove through Four Corners and the parking lot in Indian land where the Four Corners marker is located was also closed.

RE: Lithium Batteries

When you say residential style fridge, are you saying you have a compressor-type fridge or a true residential fridge? They both use a compressor but that's where the similarities end. Our Winnebago Navion came with a compressor-style fridge and 200 watts of solar from factory and we haven't had any problems overnighting without power or having to run the genny.

RE: Visiting Mount St Helens in Washington

We drove to the end of Hwy 504 yesterday. As mentioned, everything was closed with the exception of the gift shops. We were concerned about the cloud cover as we reached the Visitor Center mid afternoon, but by the time we reached the end of the road the sky was clear.

RE: Visiting Mount St Helens in Washington

I don't see anything on WSDOT about Hwy 504 being closed. Yes, the visitor centers are closed, but you are going to see the mountain. You should still be able to drive to the parking/viewpoint at Johnston Ridge. If you go, choose 504 over 503. The crater view is at Johnston Ridge. My opinion is only go if the weather is cooperating. It needs to be clear weather all the way to the top of the mountain. It's not worth going if the only thing you can see is clouds. P.S. I'm planning on a trip in the next few weeks to Windy Ridge on the East side of the crater. Thanks for the info.

Visiting Mount St Helens in Washington

We were planning on visiting the Mount St Helens area since we have never been there, as we head east from the Long Beach Peninsula. Based on what I have seen on the net, it appears Hwy 504 is closed, along with the Visitor Center and Observatory. Is it worth going on Hwy 503, and can we expect to see Mount St Helens from the south? Are there other areas nearby worth visiting, as we head south to Oregon? Thanks in advance.

RE: Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6L V6 2014

2014 V6 4X4 Jeep Grand Cherokee owner here. I towed a travel trailer with a loaded weight of 5,000 pounds for two years without any problems. As other have stated, you may need to keep and eye on your payload. You mentioned you would have to install a hitch on your JGC. If so, it tells me your Jeep does not have the factory towing package and you can only tow 3,500 pounds.

RE: Asking for a friend really

Leisure Travel RVs seem to be well built. Have you looked at the class C models made by Winnebago and Tiffin built on Sprinter Chassis? Good luck in your search.

Clothes dryer softener sheets work very well in getting rid of the splattered bugs.

Not really. It's just like any other vehicle, but bigger. And congratulations.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

From a 20 year class b owner - i like it. but how many feet long is it? Soes it have propane? i skimmed the video & may have missed that. Otherwise how would it be heated while boondocking. It seems luxurious. I believe that unit is about 27' long. I'm assuming since it is built in northern Europe it must have adequate heating, and also a cooling system for those that head south. I did see in the video some heating registers that lets air from the house to the outside storage areas.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

Nice but too small. Having spent seven month in the desert in a 39 ft interior Mh I want larger. Have to agree. Life's too short to tie up that much money in something one can't enjoy. It's all relative. We owned a 40' DP that served its purpose when we had it but eventually traded down in size to a 26' Winnebago Navion on a Mercedes chassis when our travels changed, and we have no regrets. And in case you haven't priced new motorhomes lately, $125K doesn't buy much nowadays.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

These are almost identical. Dealers cannot keep them in stock in the USA. We have a 6 month backlog on orders. Doug https://leisurevans.com/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI1LXCy-Dg6QIVhYbACh1aSQ8DEAAYAiAAEgIVZPD_BwE Although Leisure Vans make nice products they are not in the same league as that German model. Have YOU really looked at a Leisure and been in one?????? Leisure uses Mercedes Chassis and I do not recognize the German RV chassis. Except for some cosmetic differences, I do not see any real difference. Doug I have been inside of them and I like them a lot. We own a 2019 Winnebago Navion with the Mercedes chassis. We may have considered a Leisure Wonder had we seen one but I don't think those models were out at the time we made our purchase. BTW, if you sell Leisure RVs you should know Leisure is using the Ford chassis in the 2021 Wonder models. I believe the German RV uses a Fiat chassis but I'm not 100% sure. And as much as you insist on saying you don't see much difference between a Leisure unit and that German unit I beg to differ. That German RV is far more luxurious and has a much better finish than anything this side of the pond at that price point.

RE: What $125,000 gets you in Germany

$125,000 USD or 125,000 marks? They sell for 113,000 Euros, which is about $125K USD.

Too bad this coach isn't sold in the US, I would buy it in a heartbeat. This small coach seems well designed, very well made and pleasant to look at. Carthago chic c line i5 9 XL LE

RE: Few questions from the future RV-er

Get a small Class C Winnebago on a Ford chassis. Stay away from Thor products.

RE: Roadtrek class B

There are a couple units advertised by dealers for the same price in the RV Trader with about 20,000 less miles.

RE: Rest Areas in Az, CA

All California rest stops are closed. As of when? Like I said in my earlier post, I was in CA about 2 weeks ago and the rest stops were open to the public along I-40.
