RE: Awning material dry rotting where it attaches to motorhome

Yes, I had Shade Pro do ours last year. Had window awnings installed to match the awning fabric at the same time. Great service. I was very happy with the results.

RE: Yes!! I found a way to RV during this awful Covid isolation!

We have had ours out. Checked the house batteries, tire pressure, etc. Went for two hour ride up into the mountains. Exercised the generator and a/c. Filled the gas tank. Gave it a quick wash and wax when we got home. Then back to storage, until next time. It was fun to just get it out and go for a ride.

RE: Is it time to trip

Those who promote no traveling haven't spent a summer in the Valley of the Sun...:B.....Dennis Having lived here since 1984, I have spent plenty of summers in the Valley of the Sun. It's home for us. We love it. Although, we are looking forward to the snowbirds leaving once again. :) We usually do take a trip for a few weeks here and there, but have cancelled our travel plans for this summer. Considering the Corona virus, and my 85/86 year old parents....we will most likely stay pretty close to home.

RE: Am I being greedy?

It baffles me as to how anyone with even the slightest bit of business acumen could fall for this ploy.

RE: Bolt on bigfoot levelers on an e450 chasis

We also went to the BigFoot factory in White Pigeo. They had a deal on free installation and discount on the set up. I drove up after work from Peoria, IL area. About 5 hours with traffic...ugh. But, They have 30A hookups in back for overnite stays. I cooked a small meal inside, watched TV, and read a book. Next morning, they had me 100% done within 3.5 hours. I was home before dinner. Call them. See what they can do. We got that discount and free installation also. A bit more than a 5 hour drive for us. lol But we had other things we wanted to see in the area, and just made it part of a month long vacation. We had them install SnapPads also. A great upgrade.

RE: Bolt on bigfoot levelers on an e450 chasis

We went to the BigFoot factory in White Pigeon, Michigan and had ours installed. The owner Bob, is very Knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Why not just call BigFoot and ask? Quadra Manufacturing 800-752-9815

RE: 25’ Class C. Ford vs Chevy opinion

Any guesses when the new 7.3 will be available in the small class C models? I’m thinking there is probably a pretty good inventory of V10 chassis left so at least 1-2 years. I’m sure prices will go up as I believe the 7.3 is around a $1700 option for the pickups. I thought about the resale value for a non slide but someone must be buying them. For this particular model the extra 12-18” of floor space isn’t worth the negatives. IE: mechanical issues with the slides, motor etc, noise, weight, air/water leak possibilities, slide topper canvas damage, less structural integrity with a large hole in the side, more closed up feeling with the slide in, etc. wow. More negatives than I thought. Lol. if I were to setup at a campground and stay for several weeks the slide may be worth it but for the simplicity of traveling I think simple is better and less is more. We bought our non-slide model for all of the reasons you stated above. Have not regretted our decision for even one day, and get along just fine and dandy without the slide. To the person saying they are "unsellable" used......I have a friend who constantly asks if/when we will sell ours to him. He knows I would ask top dollar. Just like anything else, if you take care of it and keep it in good condition, there is always a buyer willing to pay for something nice.

RE: Toadless car renters

We used either Enterprise; or an off-airport rental company that we could pick up the car with the motorhome. Worked great! We did the same thing last summer. 15 states and 5,000 miles. Used Enterprise in numerous locations. Planned months ahead. Our motorhome is relatively small, and I have no problem driving it in city traffic. We would drive the motorhome to Enterprise, and pick up the rental car for however many days. Head to the RV park. Then we returned the car to Enterprise when we were ready to move on. Most locations have a 'key drop box' so you can drop off the car before they even open in the morning, which worked great for us. (Snap a couple of pics of the car when you drop it off) Got free upgrades to nicer vehicles several times. Everything worked very smoothly. When we were in Indiana, there had been a recent hail storm, so they had no vehicles available the day we arrived. We got settled in an RV park. Enterprise sent their privately contracted taxi driver (not an Enterprise employee) to pick us up early the next morning at the RV park and deliver us to Enterprise to pick up the car, free of charge. And again a free upgrade to a better car. He offered to do the return ride for us when we left town also. We thought that was outstanding service.

RE: AZ79 Between Tucson and US60.

I'm never in any hurry, so I don't find a few red lights and the 45 mph speed limit exactly stressful.

RE: AZ79 Between Tucson and US60.

I drive Mesa to Tucson pretty regularly, and wouldn't think of using anything other than AZ79. True, Oracle (and Twin Peaks/Tangerine) are slow-go with lights and traffic, but 79 is a good road. And for me, I-10 is a nightmare of semis, white pickups, and souped-up little Hondas. I agree. I live in Mesa, and travel to Tucson to visit friends. 79 is a good road, as stated. Be safe, and stay focused. I-10 is great...if you enjoy heavy traffic, lots of trucks, dodging tire gators, people that drive 90-100 mph, or those that constantly slam on the brakes when they see a radar patrol officer in the median. Throw in the accident delays, and dust storms. No thanks.

RE: Medicare ads!!!!!

DVR your shows and zip through them. That's what we do almost exclusively now. No need to suffer through endless commercials.

RE: Dinghy Towing guide

What I'm looking for is a used car perhaps a nice used 2014 -2017 that I can use as a daily driver with AWD and auto trans that gets respectable mpg and has 4 doors so I can also use it to transport my elderly parents when needed that's comfortable and somewhat luxurious with leather and quiet which has easy entry on the passenger side for both the front and rear occupants. Look at a Ford Flex, or Lincoln MKT. Both towable 4 down. My parents are 85 and 86. Mom has limited mobility. They have a Flex and refuse to ride in any other car. The doors are big, and open wide.

RE: Purchasing in a 55+ Community - AZ

Another thing to be aware of. In the majority of Arizona's 55+ communities, you own the 'home', but not the ground or lot that it sits on. You pay a monthly rent or lot fee, which your heirs would then be responsible for unless or until they sell the unit. I can only think of a handful where you own the lot.

RE: It’s that time again...to have some fun

There's no place like home. :) The weather person says mid 70's here all this week, into next. I have washed and waxed the car on the driveway. Did some yard work yesterday. Cleaned the leaves out of the rain gutters this morning. Life is good.

RE: North from Colorado to Mt Rushmore

Hi everyone, We’re taking I-25 north to Orin, then East on hwy 18 thru Lusk and Edgemont. Then onto 89 and 385 north thru Hill City. I would appreciate any info those highway conditions. Google maps looks pretty good, but some personal info always helps. Thanks to all, Bill We did that route last June. Heavy construction south of Denver, but we moved right along. Denver itself is never fun, but manageable. Yes, hwy 18 to Lusk can feel long and lonely at times, with very little traffic. We thought it was beautiful and interesting countryside, just the same. I highly recommend stopping overnight in Lusk at BJ's campground. Linda, the owner, is a very entertaining host. And there is a really interesting museum in Lusk. Lots of local history.

RE: Access to overhead bunk

Overhead bed....difficult for the older adult or senior?? Dang!! I don't think I'm quite that decrepit yet. I'm 65, 5'10", and 230 lbs....yet have no problem navigating the ladder in or out of our overhead bed whatsoever. It is my preferred place to sleep.

RE: No one is heading south?

No one is heading south??? Of course they are. No different than any other year. I have seen many RVs arriving in Mesa already. The RV parks in our part of town are beginning to see a lot of activity. The Canadians are arriving also. My neighbor works in the office at one of the larger ones. She reports they are super busy already, and have asked her to work more hours. The grocery stores are definitely getting more busy....and Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Target. Not to mention the restaurants. Go to any McDonalds early in the morning and you will see table full of snowbirds drinking coffee and visiting. Oh yes...there are plenty of them here already.

RE: Full-time in the Arizona heat

Roof top MaxxAir vent covers...and vent pillows...and reflective bubble for the shower dome...and dual pane windows...and dual sun screen/blackout roller shades...and window awnings...and an Adco windshield cover...and a surge protector. All of the above works well for us. Yes, I have spent several summers full-time in an RV in Arizona, a number of years ago. It can be done, with a bit of caution and common sense. If at all possible, you want the windshield facing east, so it only gets the morning sun. And any other type of shade or trees will provide significant benefit. No longer full-time, but we do use our motorhome in the summer for trips here and there around Arizona.
