RE: House cars?

What is the legal status of a camping van conversion? Once upon a time there was a legal registration status called "house car" which exempted RV's and camping van conversions from smog checks, allowed for a different kind of insurance and gave the vehicle the same status as a house. What about now? If it started out as a Van, and has a toilet, kitchen, and bedroom, it would be a Class B RV, otherwise it's just a Camper Van, not an RV. I don't know of any state that exempts a Class B, or Camper Van from a smog check. There may be some that do, but I haven't heard about them.

RE: Any Reason To Get A WDH?

Lots of opinions on WDH, but I, and many others here, like the Blue Ox Sway Pro. It's well made, easy to adjust, easy to remove, and the bars stay clean. There is an instalation video in the link. Blue Ox Sway Pro For a brake controller The Direct Link is one of the best, little expensive, but in my opinion worth it. It syncs with the TV computer, and configures the braking automatically. Of course there are other good less costly manual controllers. Direct Link

RE: Lithium batteries

They are being used in this persons new Class B. So far they appear to be working great. Davydd's new Class B built by Advance RV.

RE: Must read book, BOON DOCKERS etc

Walmarts can look very safe in the day time, but many are built in dangerous neighborhoods. Always good to know the area where you plan to stop for the night. Also, what was once a legal place to spend the night may no longer be, because city officials tend to change the laws after elections.

RE: Must read book, BOON DOCKERS etc

Hi Folks, Why is everybody so negative? Before commenting, read the book. A new idea or point of view will not kill you. Heapie You couldn't be so naive as to think that a post about Walmart wouldn't get negative posts. :R It's that time of the year, 3 Walmart threads running over in General. If it has "Walmart" in the title it will eventually end up being deleted or closed, Mods get tired of cleaning up the threads.

RE: Tiny coffee maker and toaster

My Keurig is about 9 years old, its never failed to produce. :)

RE: Tiny coffee maker and toaster

Keurig, takes 21/2 minutes to heat the water, and about 30 seconds to fill the cup with a great cup of hot coffee. Plus, there is virtually no clean up, except for the cup. There's a roast, and flavor for everyone, and hot chocolate.

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Yes, you should post questions in new threads. This one is just for "What did you do to your Class B today"

RE: How much headroom do you have Fiesta vs. Roadtrek

For the years before the Sprinter chassis, PW's have an inch less headroom than the Roadtreks because Rt drops the floor an inch. 72" compared to 73". I'm 6'2" and got really tired of always having to crouch in the Rt. Because of that I wouldn't even consider the PW. Sold the Rt for something with more headroom. I have no idea what a Fiesta Class B is.

RE: Tires

Another reason I'm recommending the Goodyear Adventure with Kevlar is the stiffer sidewall, plus because of the Kevlar they are lighter, and run cooler than steel belted tires. We all know heat gobbles up tire tread. It's hard to get the Michliens fans to consider any other brand. I've ran the MS2, V steels, and both were really good tires, but for all types of driving, highway, rain, snow, dirt, my opinion is Goodyear Adventures are a better tire. I know they are an AT tire and that alone turns people off because AT's have always been noisy on the highway, not so with the Goodyears, there as quiet or quiter than other strictly highway tires. Note: The Advenures (60,000 mi. warranty) with Kevlar are replacing the Silent Armors.

RE: Generator

They generator runs off the fuel tank, so you can't run it dry unless a fuel cut-off valve is installed between the gas tank, and gen-set. The fuel cut should only be used if it its impossible to exercise the the generator monthly, as it still needs to have the moisture evaporated internally.

RE: Tires

Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrain Adventure with Kevlar Review I have these on our SUV and they have been a great All Terrane tire, that rides smoother than many highway tires. Consumer Reports gave them a high rating. They also cost a little less than the Michelins. They come in Load Range E with an extra layer of Kevlar added. They should definitely be a consideration for a Class B. Side note: The one problem with buying tires from Costco is you can't make an appointment for tire service like rotations, it's first come first serve.

RE: Dynamax Rev

RE: Aluminum vs. Wood, Foam vs. Batting, Luan vs. Composite

Check out Lance TT, I'm surprised they didn't show you some. Lance factory tour. For the size your looking for a negotiated Lance will run around $28,000, or a little more depending on options. Cost a little more, but there a good quality Trailer.

RE: lemon law for class B

Was there other problems with the coach part, or is it just the MB chassis? Roadtrek is not responsible for the chassis unless they did something that caused the problem. I dont see how you would have any case against Rt. Have you talked with you insurance agent, they might be able to give you some info.

RE: Why is the Class B forum so dead?

Stricter moderation certainly does not encourage participation. I grow weary of the thought police on some of them. If you want to check out a dead forum, go over to iRV2. It's basically now a class A only club, and most of the posts are people complaining they bought junk that the manufacturer or dealer won't stand behind (of course, the same people did zero research before they bought). Sad really. With my B, I bought new and have had zero problems or warranty claims. It's fairly common with B's. So there isn't alot to talk about unless you are looking for a new rig, or modding one you have, or are buying new gear to outfit it. Frankly, there is a much better Class B forum out there that is fairly well behaved and has a combo of new and old tech, high budget and low budget. I find it quite entertaining and suggest folks check it out. www.classbforum.com But the other forum has a pretty small number of people posting to it, pretty easy to moderate. You weren't here when this forum was really busy. Even Marko got his start here. Didn't take long for this thread to take the op's post off topic. Not everyone likes to post something and then see their thread go off in another direction. I know I don't, but that's probably the reason I haven't posted here much in the last couple of years.

RE: Rusty propane tank - is it safe?

I don't know about newer Class B's but the older Rt's were pretty straight forward when it came to removing, and reinstalling the tank. Took me about 2 hrs. that was doing it the for the first time, I would think a dealer would be faster.
