RE: Interesting vehicle

Did you see a picture of the other side? Was wondering if anything was built on for access, or if they were using a portable ladder or stool. I didnt. Saw it early this morning in the grocery store parking lot.i went back later and it was gone.

Interesting vehicle

I'm sure some of you have seen something similar before. But this is my first time and I suppose it's a good overland type vehicle that doesn't break the bank.

RE: 3/4 or 1 ton SUV ?

I replaced my 2007 Yukon XL SLT 4x4 with a 2010 Ford E350 Van with 55k original miles to tow my 6K travel trailer. Really loved the Yukon but DW likes to bring lots and lots of "stuff" plus 3 dogs and their crates when camping so I needed the Van space to carry them. The Van doesn't have the bells and whistle that the Yukon had but it's a tow vehicle and a Home Depot run. Having the right tool for the job is what counts. We got a 2006 E350 with the V10 as opposed to a pickup. A suburban 2500 or excursion were on the list but the price was so much more. As you said, plenty of uses when not towing and capable of towing a good amount. Win Win

RE: Nomadland

Watched last nite.I did like it,I have met some folks like the ones in the movie and I think they were portrayed very well. Most of them are real people who live that lifestyle. That plus the story and great acting by the "real" actors made it great to me. It was filmed in 2018 and look where we are now. People who ended up in similar circumstances. Some by choice and others not. My daughter is hell bent on living in a camper van and I'm not opposed to it. I would love to live on the road though I would need some amenities that a van can't provide. She's only 16 so I have some time. But i had her watch it so she can see it's not only the glamour she sees on social media.

Great movie in my opinion. It's available on Hulu and in theaters now.

RE: Comcast to charge extra for exceeding 1.2 TB data

I checked our usage when this was announced Household of 4(sometimes 5) Subscribe to streaming TV provider (AT&T TV) and have Netflix, amazon prime Multiple cell phones, laptops Ring security and cameras connected to wifi Son is a "gamer" but works full time so doesn't live on the game Parents work FT jobs, stream TV when home. I work evenings and she works days so 1 TV does stream pretty much all day. That will have to change. Teenage daughter doesn't watch a lot of TV but is often on Facetime and streaming music When this announcement was made i checked our usage and we've gone over the 1.2gb the last 3 months I looked at. Our usage is the same as it's pretty much always been. We're both essential workers so Covid hasn't changed too much

RE: Bike rack front vs rear

For reference, how the bikes look on the the different types of bike racks. I didn't think I'd like the stand up one because it sticks out further, but it's easier to load and sits lower. Light output is fine and I haven't had any overheating issues though i've only towed a trailer once and that was last week in the poconos.

RE: HEY we need a sticky for our TT pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So years after buying our tow vehicle, we finally put it to use towing an RV (Grey Wolf 26DJSE). Unfortunately it was a rental but you gotta start somewhere. It was a good experience but not without some hiccups. I didn't realize how much work was involved but I'm sure it gets easier with experience. Overall it was a good time and we look forward to doing it again. We learned a lot on this trip which will be applied to future trips where we'll probably learn even more.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

Just rented a travel trailer for a few days and noticed almost everyone had these but me. I found myself walking the hose to empty it and not sure if it's related, but found that the hose leaked it i didn't squat down and hold it against the outlet. I watched my neighbor dump his tanks while doing other things to break down, meanwhile i was stuck holding the hose. While we don't own a trailer yet, i think I'll purchase these supports so i have them in future for rentals and eventually ownership.

RE: Northeast Ohio to Yellowstone with Kids!

If you and your significant other can safely do long drives like that, go for it. My family and I have traveled plenty with long drive days to maximize time at the destination. Mind you, that was before the kids had ample entertainment to occupy their time during the ride as the do now! You know your family and their ability to do long rides. Hit the road and enjoy. The road trip is half the fun for me, always has been. Whatever you don't see this time, see it another time. Sorry I can't help on the route but i figured I'd chime in to counter those who act like it's the worst thing in the world and child abuse to take long drives.

RE: Travel When Restrictions lifted

How sad it must be that scientist , historians ,economists , journalists have devoted their whole lives to deceiving you . While a reality TV star with decades of fraud and exhaustively documented liar is your only beacon of trust and honesty , I thought this was a RV forum .And you, of course, can share with us at least one of the documented lies. There's no way you wrote that with a straight face.

RE: Rig for two couples?

Some responses here remind me of when I rented a 12 passenger van and they tried to give me 2 cars because they didn't have the van when I got there. Defeats the whole purpose of me renting the van! I'm guessing the couples have made up their mind and are looking for info on what trailer may best suit them. Not whether or not it's a good idea or doable. I agree with those who said look for more than 1 bathroom and go from there. Also the toy hauler which has the beds that drops down or opens up into a big one seems better than a bunk house. That class C towing a trailer seems pretty reasonable but I'm guessing they want a non RV to get around in at their destinations.
