RE: Specific Need

There's a company called Sportsmobile who will build a van to your specifications. Or you can convert a cargo van yourself, depending on your skills. Ours is a mid-roof Transit; and it's basically a large bed, with a teeny kit. sink and portapotty. Exactly what we wanted for sightseeing and visiting :-)

RE: Bus crash on Utah 12

So sad to read about this - I read an article that quoted someone who witnessed the accident, that the bus had crept over one way, then it looked like the driver over-corrected and over it went in the opposite lane. We drove through that same area going to Bryce Canyon NP last week and were stunned by how many tour busses were at the park, with LOTS of foreign visitors. They closed a whole section of the park due to traffic. We thought we were being clever going after school was in session, not realizing that Sept must be "Tour Season"?

RE: Terrible Trucks

Walmart...the generic cheap white stuff that plugs up your colon and probably contains sawdust..........You must be buying that al la en-vogue artisan craftwork foofoo bread lol. If that's the case, grow a set and eat mans bread. Save the $1 a loaf and in about 65000 weeks you can buy a new terrible truck. OK, I am cracking up!!!! I LOVE "terrible trucks" - either diesel or something with a tuned exhaust. There's nothing you can't do with a truck (except park in certain parking ramps). We usually buy a 2-yr old model and let someone else take that depreciation whack - but I can't imagine not having one. Regarding people buying trucks or anything else that's "above their means": there's always going to be those folks: nothing you say will change their minds. "Not my circus; not my monkeys"

RE: What do you leave behind when gone for the day?

Collapsible cone I carry one of these, since we usually travel light and seldom have things sitting outside. I wrote "occupied" on it with a marker. Takes up very little space when stored.

RE: They're back ! --- Love Bugs

Hurricanes and Love Bugs - we try to plan our trips south to avoid both.

RE: Food additive

With 2 dogs, after dark, I wear one of those head lamps to find my "targets" (Ben likes to drop-and-waddle, drop-and-waddle, etc). I know I look weird, but *I* am usually the one who steps in a missed target.....ugh. I like the firefly idea! LOL! Jake's a "drop and waddle" dog too! (Love that expression!) And it never fails-I take 5 seconds to try and tear off the poo bag and can't find the first deposit! Until, I take a step that is! LOL! Glad I'm not the only one! I am SO jealous of my neighbor's dog: she doesn't move, so as she *assumes the position*, my Florida neighbor places a piece of paper towel under her rear, and she deposits this nice little bundle for disposal!!! (I always pick up after my dogs, but digging a turd out of gnarly St Augustine grass can be a challenge at times....LOL!)

RE: Down to Road trek?

Granted, we are driving a Transit Cargo van that I converted to our needs; but I can add that having a "small and nimble" vehicle can be good. Today, coming home from a 10-day drive through the SW USA (where we could go anywhere, park anywhere, etc) on I-80, a car in the left lane suddenly veered into our lane. There were concrete barriers to our right - no shoulder. Hubby hit the brakes and swerved as close as possible to the barrier and the car missed us by a hairs-breadth. Had we still been in our Class C or with our 5er, there WOULD have been an accident.

RE: Repurposed Tyvek for Tire Covers?

I would think it would be great?? Several years ago, we put the flannel-lined vinyl covers over the tires on our 5er, and the mice made nests under them :-( So don't offer pests a cushy home.....LOL!

RE: Quit RVing

Happy birthday, and happy early anniversary! We all reach points in our lives when we say "maybe I shouldn't be doing this any longer". Cherish the memories; and look for a new fun thing :-)

RE: "Standard" faucet filter use in an RV?

I had a Pur filter on the faucets of bother our Class C and 5er. No problems, and added a bit of peace-of-mind

RE: Hurricane Dorian

Dorian was a good hurricane and stayed far enough offshore that the impact to most of the Space Coast was minimal. Praying that the Carolinas are also lucky!!

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I guess I'm leaning toward a Sheltie again. I spoke to our local vet that we had used in the past and he is going to get in touch with some breeders in our area, so waiting to hear from him Thanks Mike We are going to need pictures, ya know..... ;-)

RE: Hurricane Dorian

If you just step back, forget that this is headed towards a lot of people - it's really a picture-perfect hurricane! The hurricane experts are saying that since it will "stall" over the Bahamas, that it's unstable and they aren't ruling out an unexpected turn and possible Florida landfall. Irma didn't go where forecasted, either.

RE: Peggy's Cove, NS

Such a beautiful place!! One Sunday, Ed said "we've never been to Nova Scotia", and 3 days later we were on the road in our Class C....LOL! What a wonderful, scenic trip that was :-)

RE: Hurricane Dorian

Speaking as someone with a Snowbird place (condo) just south of Canaveral, I'm way too happy to see Dorian's new trajectory over the ocean. Not that I totally trust it - Irma was supposed to stay east, then changed her mind at the last minute. My hurricane shutters are deployed, and I'm sitting in Michigan, where the weather is glorious, watching it all unfold and praying for those in Dorian's path.

RE: Personal experience with having slides and no slides?

We had a no-slide 28' Class C for over 10 years - during that time we did a LOT of sightseeing which meant we were in a different campground every night. It was incredibly-easy; if we arrived at a location late at night, all we needed to do was throw out the electrical cord. No set-up needed; if it was level enough that we didn't risk falling out of bed, it was good enough...lol! But after spending a month in it during a trip to Alaska, I'll admit that it did start to feel cramped. As we began to spend more time Snowbirding and staying at a location for a week at a time, we were grateful for our 28' 5th wheel with a single 13' slideout. Compared to the Class C, the 5er felt like a small "apartment". No more shimmying past Ed in the narrow hallway; or stepping over a sleeping dog. The setup/takedown was a bit more "fussy"; but the payoff in space was worth it. The slideout created 2 problems, though: on ours, we couldn't access the pantry with the slide in (duh - the thing that needs to be packed for every trip!); and our heat ducts were covered when the slide was in. For the few nights in freezing temps as we traveled home, when we would have preferred to NOT open the slider, it was still necessary to do so. IMO, for fulltiming (assuming you are sitting in one place for a while) - slideouts would be mandatory. They make a massive amount of difference!

RE: Interior windshield privacy curtain and door screen

As an aside: when we had our Class C on the Ford E450 chassis, we owned a set of "Easy Curtains": it was a one-piece, black nylon shade that blocked all light. It had pockets that slid over the sun visors; and a little flap that was closed into the windows to hols the side sections up. I'm assuming they went out of business because I can't find them any more; and the set that fit the E450 doesn't fit the Transit with its bigger side windows :-( The whole thing folded up and fit into a gallon-sized ziplock bag. If anyone knows of a similar product, it sure was handy!!

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

I have 2 mini "Aussiedoodles". I'm partial to herding dogs because they listen and learn so well, and tend to not run off; and when you cross an Aussie withh a poodle, they become ridiculously-friendly (which is always a good thing when out-and-about) and they seldom shed, although need to be clipped. Ben is only 19 lbs and 13" tall; Jimmy is 15" and 33 lbs. They LOVE to travel and they're not barky. Their energy level is higher than a Shih-Tzu, for example, but nothing a simple 10-minute walk can't take the edge off and have them sleeping for a few hours :-)
