RE: ReserveCalifornia

We stopped using it as well-not worth the aggravation.

RE: I am TRYING to buy and RV from you all. Not easy!

I would call the Sales Mgr.-tell him/her your situation-explain you want to buy the Airstream but don't want to put up with B.S. with salespeople. You will consider buying from him (S.M.) or who he designates and you expect because of the B.S. you have had to endure you will get a great deal or will go to their competitor. If they ask what you consider a great deal-suggest 30% off sticker price-see if that gets their attention. And, do not be afraid to get up and walk out if you don't like the deal.

RE: Newby questions

We have had 2 5th wheels and now a 24 ft. Class C. With the 5'vrs we had a 20+ft. truck and a 30ft & 32ft. 5th wheels. Great to have the truck as a driver when we dropped off the 5'vr at a campground. But with the 24 ft. Class C we really don't need a separate driver vehicle-can pretty much take it anywhere. If we do need to go without the Class C we have used Uber or Enterprise Rent A Car. Also, we pay less Ins., less fuel, less maintenance, etc., less purchase price. My D.W. is comfortable driving the Class C-definitely wasn't driving the truck pulling the 5'vr. As others have mentioned-setting up a Class C at a campground-about 15 minutes-setting up the 5'vr including unhitching about 30-45 minutes. Also, we bought a 1 year old Class C so most of the wrinkles had been ironed out by previous owner-but was still under Factory Warranty on the Chevy truck and camper.

RE: What brands of Travel Trailers are NEW & Quality

Northwood Mfg. in La Grande, Or. makes Arctic Fox, Nash, Etc. We have owned 2 A.F. fifth wheels and loved them. They are heavier and a bit on the pricy side but well built for either going down the paved highway or off road boondocking.

RE: From Florida to Cali June 1st!

Should try Quartzsite, Az. for boondocking. Loved Shady Acres Campground-Mobile, Ala.-Cajun Palms, Henderson, La.(had seafood restaurant delivery to campground), Mustang Hollow Campground, Mathis, Tx.(we had a site overlooking Lake Corpus Christi) and they make home made pizza in their office. Pontchartrain Landing Campground, New Orleans, La. These campgrounds we liked so much we stayed a couple nights extra. Forgot to mention Williams, Az. off Rt. 66/40-old time mining town which also has a train-Grand Canyon Railway-does a round trip to the Grand Canyon in older style train. There are 3 campgrounds in area.

RE: What length sewer hose?

We carry a 10ft. and a 20ft. and a connecting coupler to put them together if needed. Generally, the 10 ft. gets the most usage.

RE: GM Certified Pre Owned 2016

From an RV Dlr. we bought a used 2017 Class C w/ Chevy 450 Chassis, V8 6.0 gas engine, and about 8000 miles on it, last April. Offered about 30% off asking price. Came w/Factory Warranty and Dlr. Warranty. Had been a private owner's vehicle. Have had "No" problems, at all and have put about 3500 miles on it.

RE: Should I make reservations or wing it?

We wing it. We are members of Good Sam, KOA and Passport America. I check these 3 Websites/Guide Books to see if there are recommended campgrounds n our route for the following day-within 250-400 miles of driving each day. Usually there is a variety of campgrounds and I start phoning. We have ended up at some really great campgrounds that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise. We always try to arrive at a campground 3-5:00. That way, if we don't like the site assigned to us we can look around to find 1 that fits our needs better. Also, we have a smaller Class C now so there is a larger variety of sites available to us.

RE: Death Valley recommendations?

Love touring Death Valley. We initially stayed in our 5'vr-at Furnace Creek campground. During a heavy rain storm the campground host told us to get out immediately. We ended up Stovepipe Wells-higher ground. Keep an eye out for the weather. Definitely check out Scotties Castle.

RE: Keystone Avalanche or Best quality 5th wheel

Take a look at Northwood products. Arctic Fox and Nash have continually been rated well--http://northwoodmfg.com/5th-wheels/arctic-fox-5th-wheels/

RE: Stand-alone GPS or smartphone?

For us the GPS is the way to go. Our Magellen RoadMate has a 7" screen, Audio is great as well as the mapping directions. Works well with Detour routes, too.

RE: Portable RV GPS.....Recommendations?

Very happy with Magellen RoadMate-7" screen

RE: Motorhome financing

You can do better on the finance interest rate-we got 4.5% on our Class C and it was used-2017. Pre-payment penalty is not acceptable.

RE: Has any Forum members here tried this?

Stayed at the Pala Casino, in So Calif., and really enjoyed our stay. The R.V campground was full hook-up, big level cement pads, had trash pick-up, green space between sites, free shuttle to the Casino, restaurants, etc. Was super clean and had great view of the MTN's. We are not gamblers but sure enjoyed our stay there.

RE: Should I Be Concerned?

I am a firm believer in "Murphy's Law" Can you imagine why anyone would be smoking several cigarette's in front of your trailer, on your property? How easy would it be to back a truck up to your trailer and haul it away?
