RE: Best Fiver these days

I haven't hear a complaint about about a newer model RV with a Lippert frame in several years. Like all the old ST tire complaints I think that has pretty much come to an end. B.O.

RE: our current FINANCIAL situation

Retired. Nothing has changed. Pensions are the same, SS is the same. Same lifestyle. Like a lot of retirees, if we decide we want something, if we can afford it, we buy it. I think that's where a lot of RV sales are going. B.O.

RE: How much off MSRP now?

At least one manufacturer increased the margins on the MSRP to over 50% nearer 60%. When they say they are losing money on every unit they sell, offer to lock the doors for them. Yes I would shoot for 50% to 55% off even 60% as any unit unsold cost them money on floor plan interest. Those buying RVs may be in better financial situations than many still working...most have to watch the budget and budgets are shrinking as Retirements took a very serious hit. Sales are way down now, and they want to move inventory. They will try to get the most out of a Consuemr as they can. If you feel like you are not going to get the deal you wnt, take the figures they give you and shop and bluff. Line up financing first if you can that is a letter of credit in the old days. Offer them 50% and no more and tell them you are ready to write the check t your price. Can't imagine this will fly. They can only go so low. Don't think any dealer is going to sell at a loss just to sell a unit. B.O.

RE: BIL with Superglide drops his trailer

X3 Get out, bend over and look with a flashlight. Check that the pin is captured by the fifth wheel. You may be high hitched, or maybe submarined the pin (pin rode up and over, dropped in front of the fifth wheel). Do it the same way every time. Don't let people or events distract you. Checklists are good, if you use them. I agree 100% One of the first things you learn in a class A drivers training class is to get out and shine your flashlight at the pin and make sure it is properly latched. It is very easy to high hitch a Super Glide. Had one. B.O.

RE: New Truck 4x4 or 4x2 ??

Do yourself a big favor and get a F350 and skip the F250,it is all about payload. Even with a gas engine, you want as much payload as possible. He's got a good point ESPECIALLY if you get a 250 diesel. Then you've got just as much payload as a 150. But you do need to check license fees some places like Cal. really hammer the 1 ton trucks.

Other places like Minnesota really hammer anything smaller than a one ton. Example my one-ton is based on weight, plates cost around $150.00/yr. Ram 2500 I got rid of started at well over $500.00 a year. It was based on value. B.O.

RE: Kia Soul as a dinghy

Call Kia customer service and get the straight answer. You might be able to tow it anyway but it will probably void your warranty without their blessing. An option would be to find a 2019 model. They're out there. B.O.

RE: Trapped?

In the TX Hill Country since Jan. Not trapped but not in a hurry to leave a small county with very few cases to move to our home in a metropolitan suburb with many cases. We have everything we need here. B.O.

RE: Flag pole buddy

Sorry I had trouble doing a link but it’s the flag pole buddy 1.5 or 2.0 mounting brackets. Was wondering if it’s strong enough for a pole with a satellite dish mounted to it going down the road. never. It's plastic, the pole can bounce up and down, the antennae is heavy in comparison. Don't even think of this. B.O.

RE: Do you drink.......

Never have. Why take a chance with the little bit of water you actually use for drinking. B.O.

RE: Oklahoma Is OK

May is Tornado season in Oklahoma. I live here and it’s really the last place I want to be in May. I agree. I have to drive through there on the way north. Timing is everything. I've missed a couple of "big ones" by only a day or two. I like OK but no thank you, I won't be staying. B.O.

RE: Arizona RV licensing

Move to Wisconsin. I just paid $15 my TT plates for a year. My motorcycle is $23 for 2 years. My F150 is $106 per year. These prices are for that type of vehicle no matter how old or current or new value. I read what you people are paying and I just about vaporlock. And your property tax and State (many States have none) income tax is how much? No free rides wherever you are. B.O.

RE: Crash Guards on Towed

Many, perhaps most of those crash guards can do more damage than they prevent. Often they will go through the radiator and coolers when something is hit. Those on the heavier trucks help but to put one of that thickness and design on a unibody vehicle would be of questionable value. JMHO. B.O.

RE: How much off MSRP now?

Shoot them an offer. Keep in mind they can only go so low. I would thing 40% off would be bottom line depending on how much they have in it. B.O.

RE: Problems with past RV Parks you've stayed at?

I've seen it all. Trees not trimmed, barking dogs, dog poop, cutting through my site, loud parties, management not enforcing rules, loud exhaust. Come to think of it, what the heck am I doing this for. Much nicer if I just stay home. B.O.

RE: Average monthly rates?

Rio Grande Valley South Texas, for a 3 to 5 months stay it can be as low as $200 a month and as high as $900 a month for the deluxe places. Plus actual electricity use. I would say the average is 350 to 550 a month plus electricity. There are some even cheaper if someone simply wants a spot with full hookups. As low as $150/month in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. I pay an annual rate of $1,995 which lets me keep a home base when traveling. And you will also find you get what you pay for. If you want a decent place almost anywhere it will be at least what you pay during the Summer. B.O.
