RE: Windshield sunscreen

Another enthusiastic recommendation for Magneshades. The magnet system is great. I have put them on in very windy conditions. Never need a ladder.

RE: Jeep toad ?

You will need to make sure the year and model you get is flat towable. I have a 4 door Rubicon that is about 5 years old and it is great. I love taking it on RV trips.

RE: Which ~36' Class A can tow 15K Stacker

I would go with a Super C.

RE: new camper needs help!

Not much money = not a motorized RV. A Class C RV, especially an older one, is likely going to be a money pit. I small trailer would be my best advice. Just be sure your Expedition can pull it. You can look a tear drops and pop-ups.

RE: RV WANT-A-Be

Use Zoom. You can have them run a Zoom session on their cell phone. Then you can walk through the coach. You can have them show you anywhere you want to, with close ups in whatever area you want. Not perfect but pretty good.

RE: Surge Guard - Need Vs. Cost

I agree with getting the 50 amp Progressive portable power conditioner - not just a surge protector. It is SO worth the protection.

RE: New again, remind me

Go with used, higher quality, well maintained, with complete maintenance records. Make sure you know what the maintenance should be. Do not purchase one with paint checking. If a diesel, mileage is not a bog issue. Then look for a floorplan you like.

RE: Advice and experience with older DP Class A's

Most important: has the previous owner done the recommended maintenance and are there records to prove it? Recommended maintenance goes far beyond oil and filter changes. Is there an issue with paint checking? It is an expensive problem to fix. What is the tire age? Do they have a list of updates that have been made? What is the condition of the roof? Any signs of water damage? Prefer one kept under cover.

RE: Complaints about Cost of Mhs vs Motels

When I had a trailer, I did the math for us and the way we travel, and figured out that we were saving a little bit of money using the RV vs a hotel. Once we moved to a class A diesel, it is more expensive to travel in the RV. However, it does not matter anyway. First, we would not spend a month on the road if we had to stay in hotels. The bag drag gets old, we do not like eating out all the time, we have a dog, and we really want to be able to sleep in our own bed. Also, we have been in places where there were no nearby hotels or the RV park location and views were better than any hotel. Everyone spends their discretionary funds differently, but for us, traveling in the RV is worth every penny.

RE: Tiffin Acquired by Thor for 300mil.

Maybe the Thor designers will show Tiffin how to configure a floorplan that allows for TV viewing without neck twisting like an owl. Wow - do I agree with that one! There are very few Tiffin floor plans I would even consider given the horrible TV placement.

RE: Any full timers use a roomba style vac?

Roomba's are an example of the classic create a need for a product and advertise the H___ out of it. It's a gimmick and an expensive one. There is nothing in the brains of a Roomba that forces it to cover every square foot of the floor. If it does it is just dumb luck. If a floor is completely clear of obstacles given enough time it will eventually cover the entire surface (note free of obstacles such as chair legs and given enough time). A decent battery powered stick broom will work much more efficiently ie clean the floor in less time. BTW I used to sell them while working at Brookstone. That is not true for many models these days. There are two levels of robotic vacuums. One does a random path. The other maps the house and does a methodical path that covers the entire floor every time. I have a RoboRock at home and I love it. It has a cell phone app that shows how it maps and vacuums the house. I run it about every other day and it is amazing how much it picks up. It is not as good as a regular sized vacuum on carpets, but it does a good job. It does great on hard floors. I just take my vacuum out about once per week and go over the carpets.
