RE: Question for Class A owners.

The bed platform lifts up on my Sahara allowing access to just about everything. I can also get to the entire driver's side of the engine from the area behind the generator bay. The chassis shop at the RV store I work at has 4 electric wheel lifts that can raise the coach a couple of feet to allow the tech to get under for lubing and oil changes. Cummins and Detroits with the side radiators allow access to almost the entire engine from the back doors. I think it's harder to get at some of the gasser engines for service than it is a diesel pusher. Member fulltiming did a complete rebuild of an old gasser in this thread. I think he did pull the engine somewhere in the 400 pages of pictures and text.

RE: RT301

We've done this the both ways. Going south we stop at the Fredricksburg KOA. US301 is an old US road (this is how my grandfather got to FL from NJ), so it's stretches of 55 mph road interspersed with towns with stop lights. I actually enjoy the drive more than hours of boring interstates. The only thing I don't like about this route is the Gov. Nice bridge crossing the Potomac. According to DelDOT web site, there was a ribbon cutting for the reopening in May, so I'd say it's done.

RE: Interstate 95

In Connecticut taking 84 to avoid 95... have they done any repair or repaving on 84? Yup, we went through there last October and it was all done from the NY line through Danbury and Waterbury. We usually jump off at I-691 and go through Middletown and pick up CT 9 to Old Lyme where we rejoin I-95. The reason we do this is because Aces High in East Lyme is usually our last stop before home. I was pleasantly surprised by I-84 because like you, we avoided it like the plague in the past.

RE: Interstate 95

Stay off CT15 (Merritt Pkwy) in CT. Low bridges. I-95 through Connecticut is miserable, starting with the continuous construction in the New Haven area (going on 30 years now) to the 2 lane section east of there all the way to the RI border. If 18 wheelers are passing, everything backs up behind them. The only time I'll travel 95 is Sunday. I-95 in Mass is a mess. Originally intended to go straight to Boston, instead they routed I-95 along route 128, one of the busiest roads in the northeast. From Penn, I'd do I-84 through Danbury, Waterbury and Hartford, then pick up the Mass Pike to I-495 and take that to Maine. They have completed the work on 84 and it's in good shape for now. Hit Hartford in the midday, off commute hours.

RE: Anyone know Duluth and Lake Superior Southern Shore?

The new Mod, who is not a TC owner. I wasn't aware that this was a requirement when I volunteered.

RE: Which one is better built. Pros and cons

You didn't say what year Beaver, but the Beaver and the Sahara may be the same builder (SMC). Beavers are slightly higher quality in the house section than the Sahara. I've had no issues getting parts for my 96 Sahara. However, almost nothing has broken. I even have the original Norcold fridge. If the Beaver has a Detroit Diesel, you may want to skip it. The CAT/Allison combo is good for 200k miles with oil changes and yearly radiator cleaning. The valve lash needs to be set at 30,000 and every 100,000 after that. We are very happy with our Sahara.

RE: Where can I find replacement termination bars for the roof?

Wait, why can’t I post pictures?! If you tried to post a link, new members are restricted form doing so. It's a bot/spam thing. Use this app to create a link you can use.

RE: Need list of states where Walmarts have wine!

Apparently, those recommending "haul your own" have never been on a multi-month trip across several states. Finding a liquor store every week or two is sometimes an issue, never mind finding one that stocks your favorites.

RE: Need list of states where Walmarts have wine!

Add Mass to the no list, and NH has state liquor stores so I guess no there as well.

RE: How do you share camping expenses?

I'm pretty sure the OP has been scared away so I'm going to close this. A Jack Nicholson/Tom Cruise movie line comes to mind.... CLOSED
