RE: Class A crash

There is another thread in another popular RV forum where many chime in. I think the guy failed as a safe driver and hope he quits RVing.

RE: Planning on pulling Cottonwood Pass Colorado

Mid September may get snow there and if so, may close Cottonwood pass. Monarch pass will be open.

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

After downsizing to a 20’ C (about same size as a truck camper) we got a Coleman fold-n-go with a skillet attachment, cooks great for two https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Fold-Go-Propane-Grill/dp/B001RU04XK/ref=asc_df_B001RU04XK/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167131408724&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2506713201199210101&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9011683&hvtargid=aud-801381245258:pla-309695404985&psc=1

RE: Merchandise Certificates Expired Upon Arrival

I had the same issue. I got very inconsistent answers from reps. Finally one said I could use the expired certs if I ordered something over the phone so I did. Now, whenever they ask me to reup early I reply “no way”

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

You said that you contacted Adventurer for some help, Was that the company in Yakima Washington? Yes! Was clearing custom pretty much straight forward with no problems? The Country RV driver brought the rv through customs, completed the import paperwork and handed me the paperwork and keys on the US side, it took about 30 minutes I also assume that the chassis was US built and 50 state emissions compliant and if you got the 2017 model was it built on a 2016 chassis as most of them here are on a year earlier. My 19RD is a 2018 model on a 2017 chassis, meets all US emissions and safety standards. Thanks for the replies IN RED this is all very good information,I will keep that tucked away for future use. I would like to contact someone at ALP and ask a few questions about their Class Cs and see if they have any plans to release their products in The US. Any help there would be nice. Thanks again and have fun with those mods. just a follow-up I did contact a person in customer service and they supplied me with the framing diagrams I need to add a ladder and roof rack. ALP has been great to deal with!

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

roam1, Welcome back, I will put you on the list of Former Rental Owners that have contributed to this Thread, you will be #110 https://www.picgifs.com/emoticons/smileys-and-emoticons/thumbs/smileys-thumbs-951446.gif Thanks for coming back and sharing your experiences in buying a Former Rental,that was a very informative write up and I am sure it will help others. Also that you would do it again. The CCC and GVWR sound very good for a small rig and the GCWR does allow for towing. The new tires was a nice surprise!

My 19RD is a 2018 model on a 2017 chassis, meets all US emissions and safety standards. Its great to hear that it has worked flawlessly for 3 months and 3000 miles. I now have almost 10 years and aprox 30000 miles on mine and it also has been flawless with no major problems. Welcome again and I hope that all your camping and mods go as smoothly as possible,please return at anytime and let us know how it is going. Thanks! I contacted ALP again this week and hoping to get the framing data I need to install a ladder and surfboard rack, I am optimistic it will all work out, gentleman I spoke was helpful and looking for what I need.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

I did purchase a Adventurer 19RD from Country RV (now Fraserway RV) in Kelowna B.C. I had been looking for this floor plan for years in the US with no luck so I was willing to take a bit more risk and purchase used in Canada. The sales team was easy to work with and arranged airport pickup and transportation to the border and all import paperwork. We landed in Kelowna at 11 am and we’re across the border by 4pm. The pictures sent and FaceTime used was low resolution so getting a very accurate determination of “wear n tear” was difficult. There were some stains on the upholstery and scratches along the passenger side body which I was not happy about but I guess to be expected after 30,000 miles of rental use. Everything in the coach worked but the black tank flush. I later determined it was installed backwards from the factory and an easily corrected. To my surprise Country RV installed a set of new tires. A car fax was supplied and indicated brake rotors and pads were replaced recently. Things I did not think of until after purchase: Canadian speedometers are in kilometers, sharpen up on your math or get an app! No temporary plate was supplied, made for a nervous 3000 mile drive home. Registration in Florida required a visit to the dmv certification office and lots of confusion around price paid (receipt in CAN$), mileage in kilometers, confusing import paperwork, and the computer would only allow make to be labeled Winnebago. I got it registered but it was a frustrating exercise. Only other comment I’ll make is Adventurer would like me to work with a dealer when asked for info on framing schematic. Dealers are far apart and few between. I want to add a ladder, surf rack, sat antenna and getting info has not been easy, Would I do it again, yes because it was the only option I could find for this floor plan. It has worked flawlessly for 3 months and 3000 miles. This unit has 2000# ccc (includes fuel, water, waste, people, etc) which is quite sufficient. It also has 10050 GVWR and 18500 GCWR which will allow towing a toad.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

I believe Adventurer LP is in Washington and still producing class c ‘s for the Canadian rental market. google Country RV and look at their used class c’s from the rental fleet. there are many 2017/2018 vintage. tap on tje brochure link and it shows Adventurer LP in Washington address

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Thanks IAMICHABOD! I picked the 19rd because the rear dinette has 270 deg views, this is the same layout as my original 1992 18A Tioga Montera, and we loved backing into a parking spot and enjoying the view. The 2017 E350 on the 19 RD has a V10 which is great for towing when needed and frig and cooking is propane which is great for boondocking. I will report back.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Hi guys, We just pulled into the RV park in Paso Robles, CA for the night. I have a 2009 28A. Started up the rooftop AC and it ran fine. About half an hour later I turned the control knob to go from Max to Low cool setting. All of a sudden it shut off and will not go back on. I don't know if I tripped the breaker or if maybe the coils froze up as it's 99 here right now. Where is the breaker switch for the AC in this unit? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance! did you mean to post this in the in the “buying a former class c rental” thread? you may get more help by starting a new thread in the class c forum

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Well I may soon be a new member to this group. I put a (refundable) deposit on a 2018 Adventurer 19RD today. Will go to Country RV in Canada in a few weeks to close the deal if all looks good. So far, they have been very good to deal with. I’ve been looking for a class c under 20’ for a long time and this may be the one! They tell me we will close the deal at the border so I can pay sales tax when I get home and register and avoid the Canadian sales tax, which sounds good, no use paying it twice. I don’t believe they issue any kind of temporary tag so I will be tagless until I get home. My understanding is there is some grace period time that it is ok to be tagless as long as I have bill of sale. any words of experience from ya’all on this endeavor would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

A sad goodbye...... I sold the Majestic 19G today. I loved the unit. I have to say better built than 90% of the other units on the road. EVEN after being used as a rental it was in better shape then most of the newer ones that are hardly used. Bought it to replace my truck and camper and it was amazing. VERY comfortable and easy to drive. Biggest issue for selling had nothing to do with the unit but how I wanted to use it. I wanted to use it for shooting pictures from and it was just too wide for where I wanted to go. The roads that I drive on and do U turns on and pull off to the shoulder on are not wide enough for the Majestic. Those mirrors are SOOO wide. I was always folding the mirrors in on back roads when I was shooting. I did not want to sell it but last year I only had it out for two trips close to home. I think I only drove it 40 kilometers all last year. It was in to good of shape to let it sit in the driveway and not be used. I listed it last year and had over 12,000 views of the on-line ads. Several dozen people looked at it and finally a couple flew in today and bought it. Hated to see it go as it was a great unit. Would buy another one tomorrow if my needs changed for how I use an RV. As for the size 19' was amazing to drive and parking was a piece of cake. I had a couple people that test drove it who never backed up an RV before and it blew them away to back it up so easily. It fit in all the spots I wanted to camp with space left over. So I am now down to the last White Turtle. Not as many luxuries but a lot narrower and easier to use for what I do. This is my last Turtle I wish the RV companies would get a hint about the desirability of a 19' class C. Have you seen what Cruise America is asking for used 19Gs nowadays? Ditto on bring back the 19’ C!!! My first C was a 1992 Tioga 18A and I want to go back to that size, hate the B’s in that size! Looks like my only option is a used C from a rental fleet. Come on manufacturers, give us what we want!!!
