RE: Grand Design vs Mini Winnie plus?

Opposite in my area. GD selling all day long around $26K and the Winnie is over $30K. Couple things I don't like with the Winnie is the floor mounted heat registers. Crumb catchers I call them. GD has none on the floor. Another thing I don't like, but is correctable, is my dealer gets them all with fireplaces. That takes away the pantry and extra wardrobe leaving you with precious little space. But, the winnie has some bigger TV's :-). Pluses and minuses to both. If I were buying, I'd lean to the GD for a few extra pluses and a less expensive price. No matter what you choose, cross your fingers for a good one.

RE: Famed Durham NC bridge will no longer kill as many ACs

I live very close to the 11-8 in Durham. The sign you see overhead on the bridge flashes warning lights to indicate the vehicle is too tall, not mention all the signs on the bridge and leading up to it. There are turnoff roads you see in the video before committing to the underpass. There are many alternate routes that can be used. Trying to fix stupid is expensive.

RE: The mother of all stupid truck camper questions....

Thanks for the advice and the links. I imagine we will get the hang of it after trying a little bit. Just don't want to end up in someones driveway in the dark. I'm probably overthinking it.

The mother of all stupid truck camper questions....

My wife and I are considering a TC for some travelling when retired. Part of the potential fun and cost saving of a TC is boondocking. The pictures we see of some boondocking sites are amazing. But....where the heck do you boondock? I'm in NC so there isn't any barren desert or anything. All I can think about is someone banging on the door at night saying private property and have to move. I don't think I can just pull off anywhere, so where /how do you discover these spots? How do I know when I turn onto a dirt road or something I won't get stuck? I have not been out west so I assume it's easier out there to find spots. But in general, I'd like some tips. I have an 2018 F350 diesel dually 4x4 (not FX4) and would get the TC reasonably equipped for a few days of boondocking at a time. We are "wanna-be" adventurers. Newbies if you will.

RE: Financing question

Alway best to have the cash to buy. But then don't. As long as you have the liquid assets to cover the note, you're safe. Invest it and see a 8% average return (mine is about 10% over the last 10 years) and not only have your returns cover the RV interest, but also some of the principle. Others peoples money for big ticket items is always the best choice.

RE: Another Newbie Question about Brands

Arctic Fox is nice, but $60k. So budget might come into play here. Most of these 28'-30' are going to be less than about $45k. If no budget, then I would agree with the Arctic Fox suggestion. Good bones on the Fox's rather than Lippert.

RE: SWR 5th wheel towing

I just went with an F350 Dually. Drive it to work every day and run errands with it. Wife is surprised at some of the parking lots I park in. With a little experience, a dually isn't much different driving wise. It obviously has towing benefits. My gripe is actually the long bed. It does feel like an aircraft carrier sometimes while trying to turn.

RE: Tool Boxes - Show me yours please

Can you just put one of these in the bed? Or do you have to drill holes to mount? I have a 350 Dually 8' bed. I was thinking it would stay in place without bolting down? It would be on a rubber mat so it shouldn't slide much (hopefully).

RE: Financing TT's

I took out a loan for 12 years at 3.21% and left my money invested where I get 7% +/- average annualzed return. Now THAT's how you do it. Not cash. As long as you can really afford it though.

RE: Travel Trailer Buying/Financing Questions

lcseds 03/25/19 10:05am Travel Trailers

I still don't have an RV yet but bought a 2018 F350 DRW. It can tow rigs that are more than I can afford, but you never know what the future brings. It's my daily driver and for months I don't think there is any place I wanted to go where it wouldn't fit. Park farther from the store? I do that with all the vehicles I own. But the car wash places is an issue......
