RE: Travel through Atlanta

I've been through Atlanta many times with RV's. Early on Saturday or Sunday morning, you typically will be fine. Honestly, I have more trouble with two other areas along that route. The stretch of I-75 south of Atlanta, near McDonough, nearly always causes me grief. And going through Chattanooga on I-24 can be a nightmare. When planning the timing of your drive, I'd consider getting through not only Atlanta early but also Chattanooga if possible (they are approx 2 hours apart).

RE: RV recovery!

Very sad story, and a cautionary tale for all of us. The recovery of the vehicles in that video certainly appeared well done and respectful. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Outdoor camp oven

I don’t have the oven but I’ve been happy with my various Camp Chef purchases. Thank you for sharing.

RE: I-75 at Chattanooga

If continuing on 75 it seems to be moving better. Was through there on Friday afternoon and we made good progress on 75 to that point. We were getting on 24 which was its usual mess all the way through to the 59 split.

RE: New to us 2013 Winnebago Vista 35B

Glad the purchase worked out for you. Our travels in a 35B were with five daughters, and the additional bathroom really came in handy. In fact a third bath might have been nice. :B

RE: Ford Chassis

Maybe call Winnebago customer service in Forest City in the morning and ask what they’d suggest. When I had a wiper motor go out on a 2007 Itasca (Ford chassis) I found out it was a Winnie part, not a Ford part. We were on the road and they shipped it to the closest Winnie dealer to where we were. Not that that means it would be the same with wiper arms but they would be able to advise you in best way to replace.

RE: 2013 Winnebago Vista 35b

We had a 2014 Vista 35b for five years. Bought it new. I was very pleased with the build quality. Had no real need for warranty work. The fiberglass roof is good to have but definitely check the seams that run the full length both sides where roof attaches to sidewall channel to make sure sealed properly. Winnie spells out in manual the required maintenance there and you’ll want to ensure previous owner hasn’t ignored that. If the coach has been maintained properly, and tires have been replaced as noted by previous poster since originals would be approaching 10 years, these are really nice units imo. They also handle well for a gasser. My previous mh was a 2007 Winnie gasser with 19.5” tires and the 35b with the 22s handled infinitely better.

RE: Finding a TT that does not have Bunkhouse

Maybe try some search terms that might exclude bunkhouses, like “rear living room”, “recliners”, or other things not typically found in bunkhouse trailers.

RE: Black Water Valve Will Not Close

Remove four bolts and replace valve. X3. The good news is the tank is empty and you have all winter to fix it.

Defeated Creek COE park is one of my favorite places. Full hookup lakefront sites. About an hour east of Nashville.

RE: Does the State of TN title truck campers?

As of June 2019, TN had not yet adopted electronic titles. I am not aware that they have since. In my experience selling travel trailers and motor homes in TN, if there is a lien holder they hold the physical title. However, there may be a separate department at the bank that maintains them, and when you talk to loan services they may or may not be fully aware because most states have adopted the electronic titles. I would first contact Bank of the West again and tell them your state does not have electronic titles, and you want to ensure they don’t have the title anywhere, or that they aren’t in process of releasing it. In 2019 I paid off a loan with BB&T. They sent a payoff letter fairly quickly, but it took 3 weeks for them to mail the title to me. Alternatively go back to the county clerk. It is concerning that they could not find it. Was the camper registered in their system? I’ve not owned a truck camper in TN so don’t know whether registration is required (although the link above seems to indicate it is). If the county can’t find it, is it possible to go back to the selling dealer and ask them to check their records on the titling documentation? Maybe they have some record of what was sent to TN when you purchased it. Good luck. I know this can be frustrating.

RE: Been a busy year

Great read! I’m tired now from reading about all of those adventures.

RE: Where to in June

Land Between the Lakes in TN/KY is nice. Federal land, lakes and recreation opportunities, hiking etc. Not too far from you either.

RE: New Class A Winnebago owners

I previously had a 2007 Sightseer, and enjoyed the thorough information and schematics available on the Winnebago website. I assume they are still available back to 2008 at this point. Also called customer service a few times with questions and they were very helpful. So don’t be afraid to utilize those resources even though your rig is 13 years old.

RE: Mask use in Mexico Right Now-It's IMPORTANT!

I was talking to an anti masker who told me some things about covid that did not seem to be true. I said i would Google it and he said no you will not find it with Google. So i asked what his source was and he said " word of mouth" Bottom line is that you will never convince an anti masker anti vaxer of anything as they grab hold of any unfact checked info they can get their hands on that allows them to justify living irresponsibly during the pandemic. They will not listen to facts that will inconvenience their lifestyle. Talk about a 2 way street lol. Don’t bother. Anyone who gets their information through Google doesn’t want access to unfiltered info. They just want to be spoon fed propaganda that fits their beliefs. Probably uses Facebook too.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Thank you all for the info! I did notice that the THOR AcE reviews were not good at all. The last thing I want is for it to be in the shop all the time! So it seems that the general consensus is that the Winnebagos are the best quality for the money? Any other brands you recommend? I would say Winnebago and perhaps Georgetown only because Tiffin and Newmar don't seem to offer much in the way of bunk floorplans. Thor owns Tiffin now and Winnie owns Newmar anyway. Like Thor, I would probably pass over Coachmen and Jayco, but that's just my opinion. Winnie makes a pretty decent coach in terms of quality and fit and finish. Thor does have many other offerings besides the ACE. However even moving up the ladder to their mid tier offerings, I still find the quality sub-par to Winnie. But as with most things, you get what you pay for. The ACE and most other Thors are cheaper than other brands, so it goes back to how much and what you will use it for. Maybe you want to save some coin and get a cheaper RV. That's why there is a market for them. After all of the comments, I'm leaning towards winnebagos or even the georgetown; and am even looking at higher end models now like Newmars. From what it sounds liek though, I'd be better off even buying a 10 year old NEWMAR than brand new cheaper/lower build quality models. Is that a true statement? Seems like I could always upgrade different items on the interior to make it feel newer? THANKS AGAIN for all the input! IF you can find a clean used unit that has been properly maintained, then I'd agree you might get better quality going with something built before the last several years. Carefully ensure the roof and seams have been maintained, and that there has been no water intrusion, delamination, etc. Also ask to see maintenance records for the drivetrain/chassis, and ensure the tires, even if tread looks good, aren't too old (less than 5 years ideally) by checking the DOT codes on the sidewalls. If the maintenance checks out, then upgrading outdated decor can actually be enjoyable, and you will get something of good quality that is personalized to your tastes.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

Many manufacturers of gas class A motorhomes have offered models with bunk floorplans over the past 10-15 years. Take a look at the Winnebago Vista 35B. It’s nice in that it has a bath and a half. Your daughters are getting to an age where you will appreciate that. There are usually used ones available well within your price range.
