RE: Update to Roadtrek 170 for tall guy

Congrats... from another 170P ('08) owner. Yeah, this smallest true B crosses over into daily driver territory - very useful even when staying close to home. 18' parking spots is the norm in my suburban/urban area. Now to get all the great compact gadgets to store inside like folding director chairs, Porta-leggs table stand, bicycles, boats, etc ;)Just did some shopping today! At Bed, Bath & Beyond - for organizers for the (1) drawer, a paper towel holder, and one of those dish drying mats... We actually already have some of those awful chairs from years ago (we used to make the kids sit in them) - they make better ones now, I know... And it looks like our canoe won't fit (I measured). ;)

RE: Update to Roadtrek 170 for tall guy

Glad it worked out. How long is the bed exactly . Just measured it - 73 1/2" - that's the forward area - it gets a little tighter in the back area and that's OK with me as I don't mind being the one to crawl over and he doesn't mind it either. DH might have shrunk a little in the getting old(er) thing... But, I'm not gonna be the one to tell him. He fits head to toe - no bending of the knees. Lucky he doesn't mind a tight fit!

RE: Better outdoor speakers

The blue tooth speakers are great! Also if you put them in a empty five gallon plastic bucket it gives them some bass! I would like to find ones that have dancing LED lights also!!OMG! To try to be helpful here even though we are nature sound lovers - we've got this bluetooth speaker and it is awesome: Amazon

RE: Update to Roadtrek 170 for tall guy

Thanks everyone for the well wishes! I have to say that this is the most expensive vehicle we ever bought - and at the same time the oldest. :E But... We love it. It was great pulling into a grocery store parking lot and parking in a regular space. When pulling our trailer I have to look at Google maps and plan a grocery store that has a big open area far from the store. Just a side note... On our trip to Florida and back we didn't see one B. Not one! Saw a bunch of B+s and more than the usual amount of Airstreams.

RE: How do you define too expensive?

I have always compared prices relative to my assumed value or reward. Everything. Always have. My assumed value and necessity of reward determines if something appears to me to be "too expensive". And that need for reward has some people with their credit cards maxed out and no savings account, IMHOI agree with this. Since one of our children has a degree in finance I am often hearing and learning about "opportunity cost". It makes sense and we are the ones to define our value and reward according to our means. It is true that vacation spending does trump everyday spending. If we are in NYC we are going to go on that cruise around Manhattan. :B

Update to Roadtrek 170 for tall guy

Well.... We got one!!! We are so excited - now we are B folks! Never even been in a B before. :B We laid out boards and pillows at home to see if the size of the bed would work for us (him). Then I made a pillow that was just the depth of his head so there wouldn't be wasted space between his head and the wall. It looked like it would work. We had to wait and see... We drove over 1000 miles to see the one we liked (in Florida). We took test drives in the 170 and a 190 they had. Big difference in maneuverability, agility, nimbleness, and cuteness. Either one his hair was barely brushing the ceiling - not a problem! Here is our new-to-us 2004 Roadtrek 170 Popular (camping on the way home in a national forest): https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/IMRM_IiOiWg1pJNEpz8NdPUlq7lwMLETBHDy2unwjPBtekC8dh8T3YYzQ9gLZou5KnDQG4vNYhU8nWqmlABUwdRfbiggB7Ju4aRDX3N319L7VhqB81sXrp1nYHQDLDncRD4J-A6IR7vLCZ61Dv9megv70wG5MGl4vhna6sEOyXuC75ts_9wODN5oLzB4-YyaUY4HJz7o0BwNScuwzZAFRNm5f9Tgkjp68UW5EPVW3pfANz-hRKkpDGwU-00ldKugkL-8Nk30IhL1Zdt464VoC8MQRC7qmTgBXtFp5FUPE-bH1GegYPqnQ87uHbtR-xKcpMzUv3u9n0wgE6eJJw2YlbNp8gAmiB9Vajxi-z6F_bzv5uQt7FAOwDXoMoTdBD--rrdnDHa8JVmO2UXRZxlBTMcPvUCvF3sH9hgFyfO8BqJGIUntCaI2NJbIv7ulZ23FcqI-Tr_Er9YXnANROCm4_-a9cMaL88pADEJPpLnNdFYlo0my4tWfWW6T1R8mcplg-kgRMnz13wiTp_Ug85A0bmNMAJC-oYQ-6RmVVuYbdvAMgOOPlKyfSJZZecns8ArgBuCKd-zbBSZ5TbmiimJmLFA9AiO3CAECBy9nTeOD0U_kw99c=w1000-h750-no width=640 We love it!

RE: Insurance Co. uses VIN

My insurance company (USAA) uses Winnebago's VIN, not Ford's VIN. Look for a Finished Vehicle VIN label from Roadtrek, furnish that VIN instead of Chevrolet's VIN. You have to this at the title and registration phase as well, because the insurance company must issue policies for the vehicle registered.Thank you!

RE: Insurance Co. uses VIN

Is this picture anywhere on the Class B? If so, that would, in my mind, make it an RV... http://gorving.com/_content_assets/images/MHSeal5-11%20copy4.pngYes. I have a small Class 6 International tractor for pulling a 5th whl trailer in a model number that State Farm's computer system says doesn't exist. I sent them pictures and a copy of the registration. Somehow they got it in their computer system and insured it at what I thought was a reasonable rate. They're happy and I'm happy. BillWell, they're happy - just don't know if we are... What's the registration say? That should be used by the insurance company, not whatever they think it isDon't have the registration yet... What's funny is when I called them with the hypothetical that we might buy it they were able to look up and find Roadtrek. Now that we gave them the VIN they can't connect the dots. :R

Insurance Co. uses VIN

What do you do when your insurance company doesn't know how to describe or rate your RV? We're buying a class B on a Chevy chassis and the VIN # says Chevrolet Express Van. At this point they are calling it a modified vehicle instead of an RV (or motorhome). Should we be worried or look into how to fix this?

RE: Hurricane Matthew and I-95

Traffic on I85 was decent SW. Although hit a very long jam maybe 1 1/2 hours from Atlanta, my guess on cause a combination of the setting sun and construction stuff. They seem to be adding to the 2 lanes each way by finishing off the center divider. I75 decent , Fl Tpke good. I95 fine going south to Richmond. Sounds like the flooding is still ongoing on I95 in the Carolinas.Thanks for the update. :)

RE: netflix or amazon

I have both and they pretty much the same thing. Netflix has original series though. Some good some bad. Amazon will let you rent or buy movies where Netflix does not. Netflix is much more user friendly with thier menues. Amazon came with my prime membership. I would not have it without prime. X2 on this. I have both services. If I had to to choose between the two I would go with Amazon due to the benefits of Amazon Prime. I have found that the ratings are more accurate on Amazon. It uses IMDb.com, which I believe is owned by Amazon. FYI, I find that searching for movies to watch is much easier using my iPad. I then add them to a list to be watched later.Neither of them have Arsenic and Old Lace free streaming with membership. But you can pay to stream it on Amazon. :)

RE: Hurricane Matthew and I-95

Does this route make sense? I95 to Richmond, I85 to Atlanta and pick up I75 there. I think Richmond is well north of the trouble spots.Looks good to me. That's similar to our plan if things are still bad on I-95 on Thursday. We will be coming down I-77 and will take I-85 to Atlanta and I-75. Even though I've never heard one good thing about driving around Atlanta. :(

RE: Hurricane Matthew and I-95

You do know about the 511 sites... To find out what's happening on the roads - go to http://www.511sc.org/# for South Carolina and http://www.511ga.org/# for Georgia Good luck and let us know how it goes! We are heading down the same way Thursday. :E

RE: Roadtrek - how do you service generator?

the genny must be dropped for major service ( carb) minor services like oil change in place. some add mufflers. We rarely use ours- our style of camping is either campground shore power or we can go a couple of days on solely battery power. gennys need to be run regularly to prevent the carb from clogging up...or - add a petcock to shut off fuel flow and run the genny until it stalls... which is what we do. while stored, every week or so I hit the start button ( no gas) for about 20 seconds to splash oil the motor. MikeThanks much. We've never had a generator, but we have lots of small engines around home. I like the petcock idea.

RE: Dried woodwork

Oil it and use a wax like Lundmark's that has a carnuba and turpentine base stock.This is no joke. I always use lemon oil on all my wood. Our kitchen cupboards started showing signs of drying out from water splashed on them. I now use carnuba car wax (Mothers) on them alternating with lemon oil and they have come back to life. Yup - car wax.

Roadtrek - how do you service generator?

Since the generator is underneath near the rear axle, how do you clean the carburetor and replace plugs, air filters, oil and stuff like that? And is there any way to quiet it down any? Any info would be greatly appreciated...
