RE: New GPS needed

Don't get a Rand MacNally GPS, they are junk.

RE: Quality of Class C

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.

Dish Network has tough road to become mobile carrier

Doesn't look like Dish will be gone any time soon, as predicted by Timmac. Dish Network has tough road to become competitive mobile carrier

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

FAIR is requiring any product entering your Country to be made with the same environmental and labor regulations imposed on your own companies. We would probably be trading only with Canada, if that were the case. And we would also be paying through the nose for even the most basic products. This country already transitioned from a manufacturing economy to a service economy. We sell services and technology to other countries and we buy many of their manufactured goods. No amount of tariffs is going to change that. For the record: I have been involved in manufacturing all my life and my livelihood was mostly dependent on other manufacturers.

RE: Furrion rv air conditioner, anyone have one yet? Or Attwood?

intriguing...but I rather not be the first to have them....these new units need to prove them self in service...IMHO They might be better than the other Furrion stuff like their TV's, Audio components, shore power connectors, and appliances, but I doubt it. They're a partner of Lippert. Two peas in a pod, or two peas in a junkpile. Contract junk from China manufactured by the lowest irresponsible bidder, then branded. X2

RE: How do you feel about your corner bed?

Had a corner bed and the only thing we didn't like much was making the bed. We now have twins beds and we like the set up much better.

RE: Stuff in your storage compartment?

Propane grill.

RE: Vehicle for Pennsylvania to Arizona and back

If you don't want to tow, I recommend looking at a 24 to 26 foot class C and use it as a toad. We did this 3 years ago and never looked back. We recently completed a 7,500 mile trip across the US and Canada and got along just fine without a toad. We easily navigated the narrow streets in Old Quebec City with our Sprinter motorhome.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

Fuzzy math at best to think a 25% tariff translates only into a 2.5% price increase at the consumer level. The article states tariffs are responsible for a 5% increase in the cost of new RVs. A 5% increase on a $30 purchase isn't noticeable but it certainly is when considering a new $100K+ toy. There is a link in the article worth checking that shows the different price increases on components used to build a typical cargo trailer in the US.

RE: Length and public campsite availability lately?

Ge the 30 footer, if that's the size you want. A smaller size is no guarantee you will be more successful getting a spot in a coveted campground.

RE: Travel Trailer vs. Motorhome (my situation)

If you're going to move often, get a motorhome. If you're going to be at one place for extended periods, get a fifth wheel. Whats the difference on how often you move? You setup & take down with either to move. Setup times very similar, I have a buddy in a class A. We set up in about the same time, we both have auto level. Once setup we end up in my 5W with more room and seating. His advantage is he can make a sandwich w/o stopping. I prefer the short break. I have never seen any travel trailer or fifth wheel set up as fast as a moho/toad combo.

RE: Am I missing something?

Nope. For some reason you're not coming across as a serious buyer.

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

It would take a major earthquake to be any worse than what California's roads do to your MH as you drive every day. You haven't driven in NY and NJ roads, have you?

RE: Motor homes and earth quakes.

Southern California resident for 48 years. I can't recall seeing or hearing about any parked/stored RV flipping over.
