RE: Isata 5 on Ram chassis

Just picked mine up last week. Drove about 800 miles to get home. Incredible. Never ending power. Stable, no porpoising when I pass semi's, no slowing on hills. Have previously owned a class c, 2 class a's and a dp and by far this has the most power.

RE: Slide Out!

Chassis batteries are made for a burst of energy, not sustained draining. Coach batteries are made for slow drainage. Neither are powerful enough to handle the new slides. So depending on brand/model. engine running, shore power or generator

RE: Online sales... a good idea?

I tried the"local" dealer 3 hours away. His ad says he would not be undersold. After drove there, test drove one but it did not have the options I wanted. He quoted me a price, since I am moving across the country anyway, I called one of the online guys with a great rep. His price was 10k less I told the other dealer they were 10k less. Was not trying to shop it because I actually liked the online company. They never even tried. Wanted me to send them the quote. I would have had to put a deposit down to get it in writing, he wanted me to do that then cancel, I refused and bought from the online company. A week later he sends me a link to a used one, same price as I paid to order new. Still did not have all the options. Telling me I can save 10k.....lmao.....They will have to make money on service.

RE: Thinking of downsizing from DP to View

Bobfinch, You didn't mention how many people & pets your new rig is supposed to accommodate, nor long long your trips would average and your travel style (national parks or RV parks). That would help us provide a smarter response. One WARNING about the new 2019 Sprinter. It has a major price increase compared to 2018. Mercedes added piles of technology and a decent amount of extra weight-handling capability (GVWR is 12,125 pounds now) but it comes at roughly a $22,000 price increase. So be prepared for "Sticker Shock".They are still building on the 2018, I know I just ordered a 2020. Oh and btw, it will be a 10 to 13k increase As for downsizing, I have had them all from c to a to a dp. I just ordered a Dynamax Isata 3. Test drive one and you will love it. Complete different drive, like driving a normal van. Happened to test drive it on a very windy day and I could not tell it was windy when driving. Stable as hell, no porpoising. I took the exit and saw it said 25MPH, sharp turn. I slowed to 30 and the salesman was talking and I forgot about the drive, a minute later I realized I went through that turn and it was unnoticed. Glad I did my research prior. Cannot wait to get it. Now as for downSIZING, you just have to realize that you have about 900ccc and cannot take your cast iron pots with you. Tow capacity is about 4200 lbs. I purchased so I do not need to tow a vehicle with me, this is small and nimble enough to go anywhere with. Good Luck

RE: MoHo Registration fees in Nevada and AZ

The VLT, vehicle license tax, is based on an assessed value of 60% of the manufacturer's base retail price reduced by 16.25% for each year since the vehicle was first registered in Arizona. the rate is calculated as $2.80 (new vehicles)/$2.89 (used vehicles) for each $100 of the assessed value. For example, for a new vehicle that costs $25,000, and is registered for two years, the first year assessed value would be $15,000 and the VLT would be $420.00. The second year the assessed value would be $12,562.50 and the VLT would be $363.06 You can try this calculator VLT calculator Ok so is that since the vehicle was first registered or first registered in AZ? Mine will be 2 years old and registered in my current home state by the time I move there?

RE: MoHo Registration fees in Nevada and AZ

You will not have to pay sales tax again on the moho you own. However, expect to pay through the nose registering your 2018 Sprinter-based moho in AZ. I just purchased a new 2019 Sprinter-based moho and almost had a heart attack when I got the registration bill. If you'd like to know much I was charged, feel free to PM me.I tried but you do not allow private messages

MoHo Registration fees in Nevada and AZ

Looking at relocating to either Nevada or Arizona and I was curious what registering a 2018 Sprinter based MoHo would cost. I have options so I put both AZ and NV. The websites are not clear at all. I cannot see having to pay sales tax for a registered vehicle I currently own when moving there but I could be wrong. Any help would be appreciated Thanks
