RE: Floor Plan Ideas Anyone!!!

That's why I posed the question here. I know from Experience that what We are asking is pushing the limits to the extreme and probably won't work however I was asked by the Owner of the Truck if I could come up with a plan that might work. In My opinion He needs another 8 Feet of length to accomplish the mission,or eliminate some of the People from the equation. Thanks for Everyone's input!

Floor Plan Ideas Anyone!!!

Here is what We have to start with! The Truck is a fairly low mileage Freightliner Tandem Axle High Cube Transport unit powered by a Detroit Diesel. The Box is fully insulated and in clean ready to go condition complete with A High output Carrier Heat / Cooling Unit which will be incorporated in the plans. The Box measures 20 Feet x8 foot 6 Inches wide by 8 foot 6 High!,which will easily accommodate chases for Tanks,Plumbing and Electrical? An opening will connect the Truck Cab to the Camper Area and a Single Man Door will replace the existing Rear Cargo Doors. This will open onto a small exterior rear Deck with Stairs leading to the ground possibly on both sides?Think Train Car! We would like to be able to sleep 8 or 9 People in relative comfort! Have a Full Bathroom with Shower. A Large Kitchen space with more than normal RV Counter space. One Master Bedroom , a Dining Nook that converts to a bed, several Bunk Beds and whatever else that can be incorporated into the space! This is not a contest per se but the winning design will get Their Name mentioned in gratitude on this Forum and the finished product may be featured in future RV Publications.

RE: Newmar Shocks

There are Two on the Front and Two on the Back! OEM are Bilsteins! Easily replaced by any decent Mechanic! The biggest hurdle will be cross referencing the New Shocks with the Old ,as They changed the Numbers a couple of Years back! Spartan will give You the OldNumbers!

RE: Honda CRV

We upgraded from a 92 Tracker to an 07 CRV back in June! Installed a Demco Baseplate to match the Demco Excalibar Tow Bar that I already had on hand. Also went with their Wiring Kit ..Plug and Go ,I used a 7 Pin connector to the MoHo! I considered a charging wire to keep the Toad Battery charged ,but decided to just install a switch to the fuse for the Radio.So far it works fine. The only critisism that I have is the Michelin Tires make this car very noisy to drive. I met a fellow who had replaced His with Bridgestones from Costco ,He claimed they were much quieter ! Mine are still like new ,but will replace them at the first opportunity!

RE: Towing a Honda CRV

Here's the label under the shift Read it Heed it Have a Beer... No fuse pulling here either but I do have a ToadCharge for no particular reason. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/B79EB14E-7C5C-4663-99F9-154B03F27E03_zpsyznswx8w.jpg height=300 width=300 There is no label like that under Ours,but it is the same procedure in the manual!

RE: Shaw Satellite - quad output

IfYou have a PVR Type Receiver You need Two lines to the LNB! If You have a Non PVR Receiver You require only a Single Line! There are Four Outputs on that LNB! So if You have 4 Receivers which Do Not Have PVR 's You can connect all 4!

Road Report Guad to Eagle Pass!

We took Mex 54 North this past Week. It's alovely Road very scenic and as such a bit slower than using Mex 80D! We arrived safely at Zacatecas in plenty of time for a Happy Hour beverage with Our Travel Companions! Checked in to the RV Park at Hacienda Baruk ...Formerly Hacienda del Bosque! We spent two nights ,so got to visit the Beautiful City of Zacatecas and the nearby City of Guadalupe . Very Vibrant and Busy as this was on Palm Sunday! The line ups to the Aerial Tram were humongous so We passed for this season,but will definitely be back to ride across the Valley. Not a single bad thing to report about this section of Highway,unlike the mess out on the West Coast. The only Tolls were between Zac and Montclova ,then Montclova to Ojo Caliente Because We were running a bit late We decided to take another section of Toll Road from Nuevo Allende up to the Aduana Booth south of Piedras Negras. This was the only section of the entire route where there were a few rough sections. I would skip this bit in favorite of the Libre which was reported to be in excellent condition! For those interested the Tolls from Manzanillo to the Border for Motor Home plus Toad! Manzanillo to Cuyutlan $375 Pesos Cuyutlan to San Marcos (Colima) $192 p San Marcos to aca Lago $83 p Aca Lago to Guadalahara $109 p Guad to Zacatecas ...Zero... Libre Road. Zac to Montclova ..$76 p Mont to Ojo Caliente $34 p Nuevo Allende to Aduana Booth $144 p ( not worthwhile) Toll Bridge at Piedros Negras $50p A grand Total $1098 Pesos Considering the Time ,Cost and Minimal mileage difference ,We will be taking this route in the future ! We might however elect to add the Toll Road ..Hwy 80 between Zacatecas if we were in a bigger Hurry!

Sad News from Boca Beach

It is with great sorrow that I must report that Jean Michel,the Founder of The Boca Beach RV Park has passed away after a courageous battle with Cancer. He will be missed by all who knew him.

RE: closure hwy 200 Manzanillo to Pv

We were told that the PV Buses were still running up and down 200 between Melaque and Puerto Vallarta as of Today! I wonder if somebody got their information wrong! There was that Detour through the arroyo near Tomatlan which supposedly got hit by the rain. Maybe it was more serious than First reported. Can You confirm the road closure Tequila?
