RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

One would expect inventory to start coming back, as the "buying season" in northern states tapers off as the camping season goes on. Except that the article indicated that all of 2021 production was already sold at the retail level and they expected 2022 production to just fill normal dealer inventory. Dave

RE: Amazon devices will soon automatically share your Internet

The Amazon devices don’t broadcast wifi the way Comcast and Spectrum do with their wifi units placed on customer sites. The Amazon devices only communicate with each other and share available wifi among themselves. But I won’t have any of them in my house. Just say’in… Dave

RE: New To the Forum

Congratulations on your Bronco Sport. I took delivery on mine 3 weeks ago and love it. Since we downsized to a Class B we no longer tow so I can’t help you there! Dave

RE: ? DIY Utility Trailer Deck "Paint" ?-

In case you haven’t put down the deck yet, I used 5/8ths marine plywood and left it “au natural”. Dave

RE: Jeep missed the boat

These days it’s all about the tranny, the transfer mechanism, and the rear. You need the right combo of all, which comes with the willingness to give up some 4WD capabilities, to make it towable 4-down. Both our 2017 Wrangler and our 2020 Gladiator have the 3.6L V6 engine, automatic transmission, and manual transfer case - I don't think we've given up ANY 4WD capabilities and both vehicles tow fine... My Wrangler has all the same features and also is towable. But we aren’t discussing Wranglers. For example, I am happily giving up my Wrangler for a Bronco Sport with more advanced 4-wheeling capabilities than my Wrangler, plus a nicer ride snd other amenities, but it can’t be towed. I’ve owned and towed 5 Jeeps and loved them all (except the 2006 with the death wobble) but gave up dragging a toad years ago so no big deal for me, but everything is a trade off. Dave

RE: Glacier National Park starting ticketed Entry

Makes me all the more glad I visited our National Parks multiple times 20 years ago. Would I like to again, yes, but I expect it would be so different it would be painful. Dave

RE: backing up 4 down jeep jk

I was "forced" to back up my Jeep Wrangler once (yeah, I know, I could have disconnected, got the Jeep out of the way, backed up the truck, then reconnected. I should have!) It was fine for about 4 feet, then the steering SLAMMED over into a full left turn against the stops. Yes, I was backing straight, no turn. I will never do that again, I do not care how many people brag that they have done it with no problems. One experience was enough. X2. Dave

RE: FL questions

You can have it all at Ft De Soto County Park. You’ll have to see if they have room. Dave

RE: Delaware Family Campground

We always used our own tubes but we entered/exited using public access points. Your best bet is to call the campground. Don’t forget to ask them about a good place to exit. It may be worth renting tubes if they have a drop off/pickup service. Dave

RE: New post on bike carriers

Looks like it would work, the only information I did not see is whether there is an anti-sway wedge on the receiver shaft. On my Yakima swing away there is a wedge that expands the shaft when securing the rack in the receiver. This prevents the motion caused by the rack shaft being able to move around in the receiver. Maybe not so important mounted on a pickup. Dave

RE: Is Martha’s vineyard worth the cost & effort? Nantucket?

We are year-round Nantucket residents and it is a wonderful place, which is why after many years of being part-timers, we drifted into full-time 6 years ago and sold our other home. We choose our beach based on the wind direction and, with over half the island locked in Open Space Public Access, we have miles of dog walking areas. We have little to do with the shops and restaurants, the rents they have to pay make the prices they charge nuts. All of that said, there are no campgrounds and even though residents pay much less for car transport, our Sprinter is $500 round-trip because when we travel it’s for over 30 days. To truly “get” Nantucket you need to have a car and drive the Island. Four wheel drive that can cross 20” deep “puddles” is best :b. Regarding The Vineyard, when we were liveaboard boaters 10 years ago Martha’s Vineyard was always a couple day stopover. Again you need a car to really see it but I prefer Nantucket:w. Dave

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

Seems like a much better business opportunity to install a diesel pump at the campground as I am almost always in need of a fill-up when I arrive. Dsve

RE: Ev charging in camps expectation of availability, cost

I guess I’m missing something. Why would a campground feel obligated ton install an EV charging station? I’ve seen very few with gas pumps. Dave

RE: New Border Regulations

....if anyone here from Canada is RVing and needs to get back by airline, you better do it quickly. The Canadian Feds just announced this morning that all flights in/out of "sun destinations" (this includes Mexico, the US the Caribbean, all of Latin America) are halted (read: cancelled) from now (today) till the last day of April.... I couldn’t find anything mentioning canceling flights to the US. Dave

RE: Receiver Bike Racks

Just don't do what my BIL did... forget they are up there and drive into the garage. It was not pretty. :S :B Dave

RE: Receiver Bike Racks

I just today installed my rack as we started packing to head south and can’t imagine it failing. In fact both my hitch and the Yakima feel overbuilt - which I find comforting. Of course a 5 bike rack is handling a lot of weight extended out from the hitch greatly multiplying the stress on the receiver and hitch. Actually I didn’t realize anyone manufactured a 5 bike hitch rack. Other than a frame attached platform I can’t picture anything that would handle that load. Dave.
