RE: Mesa,Az RV Park

Monte Vista RV park is building a new RV park opening late summer or early fall. For years they've put RV's in unsold park model spots. They're now building an RV park adjacent to the park model area. Something to look at when they open as the park model area is very nice and clean so I'd assume the RV park will be very good.

RE: Arizona winter stay campgrounds

In southern AZ we love Tombstone Territories RV park. Very quiet park away from any city. Lots of fun things to see and do in the area. Tombstone and Bisbee are a short drive away. Ghost town of Fairbanks is just down the highway. Numerous wineries for a day of wine tasting is nearby in Sonoita or Wilcox. Kartchner Caverns is an incredible cave to tour about 30 miles away. For shopping needs Sierra Vista is close by and has most major stores.

RE: Early check in

Most privately owned RV parks we've been to allow early check in or late check out. Most without a fee but a few do charge. If a park is not full then early check in is rarely a problem. If it is full and our spot is vacant then most RV parks have allowed us to arrive early. Late check out of 1 or 2 hours has rarely been a problem as well. As long as we ask the night before or early in the AM. State and national parks are a bit different. Most have allowed early check in if the spot has already been cleaned. Most have not allowed late check out. We've seen workers come rake spots and clean but they never spend more than 10 minutes.

RE: Looking to buy 2018 Ram rebates are horrible

I have heard about that, but I still can't make sense of it. Do I need to ask the dealer to get this info? Rarely can you ask the dealer for invoice price and get a straight honest answer. Sites like KBB will show the MSRP and invoice price. If KBB doesn't show all the options for the truck you're looking at then note the markup from invoice to MSRP and figure similar amount from MSRP on the truck you are looking for. Subtract any manufacture to dealer incentives if any or manufacture sponsored rebates. That should get you close to what the true invoice price is. For a 2018 I'd start at invoice minus all rebates as my offer. Negotiate on total price including any dealer documentation or any other dealer add on fees. I never pay dealer documentation fees which in AZ are typically $700 or more.

RE: Looking to buy 2018 Ram rebates are horrible

Forget about the rebates. Get your financing lined up and shop around for the lowest out the door price. I agree that the bottom line out the door price is what matters. However, if the manufacture is offering consumer rebates or factor to dealer incentives that means the dealers actual cost is lower and they can sell for less. I always find out what the dealers true cost is as close as I can. Invoice minus any incentives and rebates minus hold back etc. Then make my offer based on that.

RE: Looking to buy 2018 Ram rebates are horrible

Best rebate Ram is offering is $3000 for a 2018 2500 Tradesmen Crewcab 4X4 short bed. Ram says average savings is $8845 based on average paid. May vary by location. I bought my 2007 Ram when there was a $12000 rebate and $2000 factory to dealer incentive. Was able to get it for $14,000 below invoice. Good year to buy a truck!

RE: Financing TT's

If you have excellent credit then try Lightstream. Was approved and had money in 2 days. It is unsecured so no lien on your TT. My loan is at 4.5%.

RE: PopupGizmos

We used them on the outside for many years and loved them. Worked great to help in the summer heat. In the cooler months they prevented condensation from forming on the inside. No longer have our hybrid but just found the popupgizmos in the garage!

RE: state park and federal park amenities

Most AZ state parks have electric/water but no sewer. Nearly all of them have an onsite dump station. Most AZ forest service campgrounds have no hookups. Some have onsite water to fill jugs and a few have nearby dump stations. What I have found in AZ is that most of the forest service campgrounds don't really cater to big rigs. Remote dirt roads to get to them and tight tree's limiting access for larger RV's. We took our tent trailers and later a 22' TT to these but would not take our 5'er.

RE: Las Cruces NM to Camp Verde AZ

How is hwy 60 thru NM? In AZ Hwy 60 to 260 thru Payson and on to Camp Verde is fine for RV's. Very scenic high elevation much of the way. A few grades but never a problem.

RE: Travel route

Scenic but not fun with an RV. Several tight turns along the way. I-5 is the fastest but also the least scenic. Instead take Hwy 101. Very scenic is several sections. Many wineries along the way in Buellton, Solvang (Great small town) and Paso Robles.

RE: Can I tow this TT with my 5.7l v8 Durango

We pulled a 5000lb loaded TT for 11 years with out 2004 Durango 4x4 w/5.7L. Pulled it with ease. Up steep 6% grades it was down to 40mph unless I wanted to run near red line. Handled great. The 2004-2010 Durango's have a stiff tube frame and solid axles well built for towing. My understanding is that the newer Durango's have independent suspension and unibody construction. Maybe nicer ride but not as good for towing. The newer 5.7L Hemi's have more power than our older 2004 so that won't be an issue.

RE: Re-coat roof already?

Makes a huge difference whether the RV sits out in the sun or is stored under shaded cover. Sun quickly rots a roof and caulking especially if its allowed to build up dust on it which dries it out. My last TT was always in covered storage when not in use. After 11 years the roof looked good as new as did the front and side paint, gel coat, plastics etc.

RE: Chula Vista RV Resort has reopened....

Sun Communities will keep it open until city breaks ground on new development plans. Sun will be building a new RV park a few blocks away that will then replace Chula Vista. However, this new RV park be a block away from the bay. No more bay shore park area. We've enjoyed Chula Vista over the years but lately the per night rate has hit absurdity. Popular weekends are now $125+ per night. Non peak days are often still $80-$100.

RE: Camping near Flagstaff AZ

None of the Flagstaff area RV parks are all that great. Instead we stay 20-30 miles west in Williams, AZ. Circle Pines KOA is a nice, clean forested, dirt road campground. Many spots are large, big rig. Grand Canyon Railroad RV resort. This is in Williams next to the Grand Canyon Railroad and hotel. RV guests can use the hotels indoor pool. Very nice paved RV resort. General store and pet kennel on site. This is our favorite. Williams is a great route 66 town right off I-40. Below are Flagstaff area RV parks we've been too. Woody Mountain. This would be my pick if you must stay in Flagstaff area. Forested, dirt road campground. Clean, very nice employees. Big rigs can be a problem as some spots are narrow and numerous trees to maneuver around. KOA east Flagstaff is very cramped tight spots. Munds Park is clean but most spots are out in open treeless area. Much of the park is now permanent rentals. If you can get a spot in the forested section you'll be good. J&H RV Park. Clean, open gravel lot. Mostly 55+ but they do allow kids. Most of the residents have lights out and inside RV's by 9pm. Fort Tuthill Park. Forested state park. Most sites have water only, no electric. A few spots have sewer.

Mesa AZ, Valle Del Oro or Monte Vista RV Resort?

Has anyone been to either of these parks and can comment? Are they both decent clean parks? Looking to stay at one for a few nights in Dec. as we have family that lives only about a mile or so away.

RE: San Diego camping/RV park

KOA is very nice. Large park, friendly staff. Campland on the bay while a popular location is a dirty dump. Mission Bay RV Resort is clean but its just a parking lot with narrow spots. San Diego RV Resort has very tight spots and one way roads. Have to ask manager to open gate onto side street to get out. Escondido RV Resort has 2 areas. Lower level has tight crowded spots and many full timers. Upper level is newer, nice big wide spots and very clean. San Diego Safari park is nearby. Further to the north in Temecula is Pechanga RV Resort. Very nice, wide streets, large spots and very clean. One of the nicest RV parks I've stayed at. Casino is next door. Numerous wineries are nearby. 25 miles to Safari park, 55 miles to San Diego.

RE: RV warrantys worth the $$ ??

Its been worth it for us but that really depends on the coverage and the cost. Do not pay the full retail asking price for the warranty!! Dealer started out at over $3000. Said no and they kept lowering it. I accepted at $1400. Thats how much markup they have! Ours is thru XtraRide which is accepted nationwide at most reputable RV shops and dealer service centers. So far they've repaired the toilet, A/C, tank valve and awning. It's paid for itself.

RE: Rockwood Roo 21ss Nissan Frontier v6

I pulled a very similar Hybrid, a StarCraft 21SSO. Same floorplan and similar weights. I pulled with a 2004 Durango 5.7L V8. It pulled quite well but I would never consider pulling with a V6 (Had a Nissan XEV6 as well). Would also not consider pulling with a smaller, less rigid framed vehicle. Even the smaller hybrids that weigh in loaded at around 4,000lbs would be a bit much unless you live in flat lands. Then they're a possibility. I used my Nissan V6 truck to pull a 2,500 lb loaded popup which worked very well.
