RE: 7.3 Ford vs 6.0 Chevy cockpit room

We have a 2017 F. R. Forester LE on a 450 Chevy chassis with the 6.0 gas engine. Purposely got the Chevy with a gas engine. No problem with foot room-driver or passenger side-plenty of foot and leg room. Also, no heat coming up thru floor on passenger side.

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

We have used Uber for local shopping. Have the Uber App on cell-call them, they pick us up at campground office. Uber drivers make great tour guides, for best restaurants, places to visit, best marketing, etc. Rented a car once for a week stay.

RE: Free overnight camping in small towns

Last year we stayed at Pima County Fairgrounds, Vail, Az. with full hook-up and WIFI for $27.00/night--w/Good Sam Discount. This is S. Tucson area off I 10. Definitely would go back there.

RE: Is a toad necessary with a small motor home?

We have a 24ft. Class C and No toad. At 24ft. we can pretty much take it everywhere we would want to go. Also, we can and have used UBER and twice rented a car. Considering the cost of a Toad-Ins, Maintenance, Tires, Etc. compared to an Uber ride(usually about $7.00) to renting a it just isn't worth it to us.

RE: Too old to drive ?

We went from towing a 32ft. Arctic Fox 5th wheel w/F250 CC long bed Diesel to a 24ft. Class C. The "C" is so much easier to drive, park, back up, etc.We miss the space, comfort of the 5'vr but don't miss having 50+ feet going down the road. And, now my wife drives which is great. Also,being the "C" is only 24ft.-don't need a toad-we take it anywhere we want to go. If need be we have used Uber and once rented a car for a week. I am 77 and not about to give up traveling and exploring.

RE: Not a Great Week for Travel

We were in S. Az. 2 weeks ago-from S. Ca. Primarily traveled 1 10.Some major things should keep in mind this time of year-the wind gusts hitting you broadside, of course the weather and the truckers. The truckers own the road and there are a lot of them on the road right now trying to get supplies to stores. On I 10 we would see 10-15 truck caravan's-some traveling 70-80 mph. There are more truckers on the road than private vehicles.

RE: 2009 Thor Motor Coach Chateau Citation

We have a 24ft Class C-bought it used from a Dlr. Were looking for a Chevy chassis with V8 gas engine Definitely didn't want a diesel. Diesel is very expensive for maintenance, oil changes, etc. If you have any problems-Chevy/Ford are a lot easier to find repair facilities. We can go anywhere in U.S. or Canada and there is always a place to get work done. Also, at 60,000 miles there will be repairs-probably reason owner is getting rid of it.

RE: Is 70 to old to travel with a RV

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

We received 2 of the new RV magazine. Previously, was getting Trailer Life and MotorHome magazines. Definitely letting 1 run out-will wait to see what develops to see if we keep 2nd subscription. Have been getting the 2 Mag's. for years-currently have a Class C-used to have an Arctic Fox 5th wheel. Figured they would put it together-1 person doesn't need 2 RV magazines-but, oh well my dog will now get his own copy.

RE: Best and worst routes across the Mountains ?

If you do take I40 through Az-be sure to stop at Rt# 66 town of Williams, Az. Plenty of RV campgrounds. Take the historic train to the Grand Canyon and back. Definitely a fun trip.

RE: Tire Valve Stem Cracking

Metal valve stems are definitely the way to go with your Good Year tires. "China Bombs" do unbelievable damage when they blow to the wheel well as well as the RV interior around the wheel well area.

RE: Thousand Trails Membership

Our way of thinking is there is so many campgrounds in the U.S. of A and Canada-it just isn't worth the $$'s to restrict yourselves to that style of camping. We do belong to Good Sam, KOA and Passport America. Where ever we go there always seems to be one or the other to stay with. We have camped from So. Ca. to B.C. and Yukon Terr.-to Florida and many points in between.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

Weber Baby Q-have had and used 1 for 10+ years-never had a problem-except people trying to steal it while left outside.

RE: Grand Canyon

Williams, Az. has a scenic (old time)train ride to the Grand Canyon and back-it is beautiful. Williams is on Route 66, also-which is a fun trip in itself. There are quite a few RV campgrounds in or around Williams. Just a thought. https://experiencewilliams.com/grand-canyon-railway/

RE: Anybody Remember These RV.net Stickers?

Yup, still have 2 of those stickers. I have a 2004 F250 CC and still on rear window.

RE: Wolf Pup

IF you take it back to Camping World for repair-will probably sit there for a month or 2-try to fix yourself.

RE: One night stays and black/grey tanks

We live in So. Calif(Orange County) and have traveled to McAllen, Tx. and back, quite a few times. Last day of travel we would definitely dump black tank and follow with gray tank. Usually in Az.-around Quartzsite, Az.-we would fill the fuel tank-Some Pilot and Loves gas stations have Dumps.

RE: Thinking about buying a class c

When we were looking-had decided to get a Chevy chassis-bigger front foot/leg well, no heat emitting from the engine/trans. to the passenger seating area. Wanted to get slightly used-figured the previous owner had gotten the wrinkles ironed out and much better price. Wanted a gas-V8 engine-stove had to have an oven + the microwave, wanted cross ventilation in upper sleeping area/sliding windows. Ended up with a 2017 450Chevy chassis(bought it in 2018) with 6700 miles on it(still under Factory Warranty)-V8 6.0 gas engine, Forest River Forester 2251SLE-24ft. Perfect for myself, wife and dog. My wife can and will drive it. Small enough so we can take it everywhere-don't need a toad. If needed we use Uber or rent a car.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

We bought a slightly used Class C, 2 years ago-from the original selling Dlr. 2017 Forester LE in 2018 with 6500 miles on it-Chevy 450 chassis with V8 gas engine. They gave us paperwork showing everything they had repaired/replaced before selling to us. Also, was still under Factory warranties as well as Dlr. warranty. Being newish/used they had a high asking price. Offered them about 30% off asking-we settled at about 25% off asking. 2 years later and about 6000 additional miles-no problems with the Rv. or chassis/motor/etc. Previously, we have owned 2 fifth wheels(Arctic Fox)-the Class C is so much easier to operate, to set up and now my wife will drive.
