RE: F550 based class C?

Back in 2003/2005 there were some made for Cruise America then sold after being refurbished under the Name Majestic There are some on the market For the first time ever I went to the SRG website, and on the surface it looked great. However, I learned real quick that the vast majority of the listings are very stale. Stacking them in newest to oldest format helped a lot, but most show 'posted over 1 month ago' -- and I found out that could mean YEARS ago. I actually saw some listings for 'coming soon' NEW 2017 models!!! That being said, once I made it through the learning curve, it looks like there are a lot of listings on SRG that are not on RVTrader, which, until now, I viewed as the site with the most to offer. Thanks for the introduction to another option!

RE: Best place to sell class A motorhome

To me 'no activity' means it's priced too high. Just like with brick & mortar homes, EVERY home is sellable -- it just has to be priced right. There is no such thing as an unsellable home, and the same holds true for RV's. Start systematically lowering your price. You'll find the market when you hit the sweet spot, and it will sell. We have already lowered the price twice and we are significantly lower than comparable units. I really need advice on where to list. I have used RVYrader several times in the past with great success. Craigslist can be hit & miss -- plenty of scammers lurking there. Have you had anyone actually come look at the unit? How about your pictures -- there need to be plenty of them, and they need to be GOOD pictures. Many Realtors now use professional services to do their pictures and, wow, what a difference it makes. You might want to look into that. You could probably get the name of a good company through any local Real Estate agency. Does the RV have any glaring negatives? Higher than normal mileage, areas needing repair, cleaning, or attention of another matter? Tires good (and spelled out in the ad, including pictures of the tires & date codes)? Just a few thoughts.

RE: Damage while moving

Much like your car, your insurance is in full effect if someone else is operating it with your permission. This was the case here, right? So, the outcome should be pretty much the same as if you damaged it yourself. You'll need to eat the deductible, which you 'could' try to collect from the actual operator, but I sure wouldn't count on it. Just hoping you have a good insurance carrier that won't fight you. Since this is posted in the Travel Trailer section I will have to assume we are talking a Travel Trailer. Here is the rub about Travel trailer and insurance.. IF you do not have a dedicated Travel Trailer Insurance policy or extended auto policy with RV/Trailer coverage you have zero coverage unless the Travel trailer is fully attached to a vehicle. You get nothing, nada, zip, zilch coverage. When your Travel trailer is sitting on your own home ground your homeowners insurance will often cover with partial coverage up to what ever limitations may be in the policy. If your Travel trailer is sitting on a campground lot unattached from your vehicle you have nothing, nada, zip no coverage unless you have a RV/Trailer insurance or extended RV/Trailer insurance on your auto insurance. The helpful person that towed that RV/Trailer, their insurance may or may not cover any damage depending on their policies limitations, but that is while the trailer is attached to their vehicle.. Once unhitched, their auto insurance is not going to pay one red cent. The helpful persons auto insurance most likely will not pay on red cent if that person accepted any money or was willing to accept compensation for said services (that is the same as a business transaction and most personal auto insurance will not pay one red cent if a personal vehicle is used for business purposes). While we can argue many points here in this thread, it isn't going to fix the damage that has happened, it isn't going to make it whole again. Only the OP of the thread knows the full story and only the OP of the thread will have to decide if they wish to be the bigger person and see if their insurance covers or not and if not make repairs on their own and move on. RVs can be repaired or replaced, lives cannot, no one was killed or hurt and much better to use it as a learning experience and not repeat the same thing again down the road. So then, why would someone NOT have separate coverage on the trailer? It would be kind of foolish not to insure an investment with as much value as a travel trailer, wouldn't it? And, of course, if there is a lien on it, insurance must be carried to satisfy the requirements of the lender, but this may or may not be the case here. Just common sense as I see it . . . much like insuring your car.

RE: Good rest area arounf Buffalo Wyoming

Since Sturgis to Cody is only about a 6-hour drive, you're not looking for an overnite stop, but just more of a break, correct?

RE: Damage while moving

Sounds like the move was haphazardly orchestrated. You could check with your insurance company, since he was pulling it with your permission, but I wouldn't hold my breath. I know it's now water under the bridge, but I would never consider anyone other than a licensed and insured professional to do such a move. Hope it works out for you, but it looks to me like you're going to have to eat the damage yourself. Lesson learned.

RE: Shuttle bus conversion

Does this have any potential? What are some issues to expect with a 1999 Ford diesel, etc. Or is this a bad idea and something newer makes more sense? https://www.commercialtrucktrader.com/listing/1999-Ford-F550+XLT-5016668787 Crazy low mileage for a '99, plus it has (in my opinion) one of the 2 best diesel engines ever put into a truck. As for price, that's up to you. Best of luck in your venture!

RE: GRRR Ford Dealer - 2022 SD

Don't be so quick to throw the salesman under the bus. Orders are not placed by the salespeople -- they're placed by management. A little common sense tells you that a salesman doesn't get paid until the vehicle is delivered, so where's his incentive to see that it goes anywhere but to his retail buyer? I notice on this forum that people jump on salesmen a lot, and deem them mostly dishonest. Spending 30 years in the automobile business prior to retiring and going into Real Estate in 2012 showed me otherwise.What's your impression of realtor honesty? My daughter has a low opinion. She has had bad experience after bad experience with realtors. On her recent home purchase the realtor and inspector seemed to be in cahoots and tried everything possible to get her to sign a new contract with less advantageous terms than the one already in place. And now she's found additional rain damage from the bad roof (it was sold as is) that the inspector didn't "find."You do realize that a realtor doesn't work for the buyer right? They work for the seller who pays themfrom the sale proceeds, and signed a contract with them, before any buyer is even on the scene. You need to educate yourself. Have you ever heard of a "buyer's agent"? A Realtor can act in a capacity for a buyer OR a seller. As a buyer's agent, the Realtor represents the buyer's interests exclusively. There, your lesson for the day. You're welcome:CI am aware that can happen..... but it is rare. The reason it is rare is that the buyer would have to pay the realtor a fee upfront... (they like to get paid you know.) And since normal people do not have that kind of coin .. It usually happens with ultra high end properties where everyone has a lot of money. Where in the WORLD are you getting your information??? A buyer does NOT pay a buyer's agent anything up front. When I am representing the buyer, acting as a buyer's agent, a sale doesn't always result. Same as if I'm an agent for the seller. Not EVERY house sells, and not EVERY 'buyer' buys. And, believe it or not, we work solely on commission when a sale is closed -- nothing 'up front' --- EVER. You should research this, and maybe even call a Realtor and ask how a buyer's agent relationship works, if you don't believe me. You will definitely be surprised, because the information you think is true definitely is not. Remember, I AM a Realtor, so I kind of know what's going on, and I speak with some authority.

RE: Fl to Mo

Personally I'd try to avoid the Atlanta-Nashville thing. In Alabama, I-65 to I-22 is your best bet as I see it. We were recently in KS & MO and came back through Memphis. A lot has to do with the time of day you hit the bridge area. Our GPS helped us immensely. Yes, it took us through a few residential neighborhoods, but it certainly wasn't bad. It made more sense than adding several hours to our trip by avoiding the bridge (I-55).

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

The part that confuses me is the huge inventories these RV dealers seem to have, especially towables. We just returned from a couple road trips, passing many RV dealers on the Interstate, with lots that literally look full. You can't convince me those are all sold units. If you go onto RVTrader, and do a nationwide search for Thor (without a specific type/model), there are nearly 4000 new units for sale. Even throwing out the 'pending sale' listings, the number is still quite high. PLUS, this is only searching the Thor brand -- not even taking into account Jayco, Airstream, etc. Are these dealer inventory units nobody wants, or is the extreme 'shortage' maybe not as bad as it's being portrayed? Just wondering.

RE: Cover For Fifth Wheel

We don't have a 5er, but I can tell you based on my experience with vintage cars, if nothing else, be absolutely sure it's breathable. You certainly don't want a build-up of moisture or mold, especially since the cover won't be coming off of it regularly.

When the sale is made, I get paid at closing as the buyer's agent, typically half of the total commission -- half goes to the seller's agent and half to the buyer's agent -- the total commission amount being paid by the seller. Whew, I'm doing a lot of educating today. I'm tired! :B Are you implying that the buyers agent is in cahoots with the sellers agent to assure that they receive a commission no matter how it affects the buyer? Seems that way. Absolutely not. Many times (if I'm the buyer's agent) I don't even see the sellers agent until closing. You need to realize, not everyone in this life is crooked, and if you approach things looking at it in that way, I must say I feel sorry for you.

RE: Thor Industries now has $14 billion in backlogged orders

Pre covid quality standards were hot garbage. What happens when you speed up production? I didn't think Thor had a stellar reputation before the pandemic. It will be interesting to see the quality of the backlog. Agreed. Of all the manufacturers, they're the one I'd trust least in the first place (but they sell tons of units because they're typically the cheapest). Ramping up production is bound to have an impact on quality.
