Found It, What a joke. Buying in 2021 LOL. You can keep it.

Found this online https://i.imgur.com/U1WIbu2l.jpg Nice, and supposedly in stock in Ohio, has just about everything I would get if doing a special order. Even called these clowns and asked about this.................the sticker lol. https://i.imgur.com/mcZarSll.jpg "All of our Super Dutys are priced $5000 above sticker and this price is not open to negotiation" ROFLMAO Clicked on the "get E Price" and that came back at the "sale" price of $72K LOL. Needless to say we talked trade, just had to do it, 2015 F250 Lariat 6.7 with 42K miles and they shot back a lowball price.........$38K........KBB says a range of $51K to $58K FWIW........ Someday things will get back to some resemblance of normal and these guys can go out back and screw themselves. Why do I need to know what the California Air Resources board says about Environmental Performance when buying a truck in Ohio? Welcome to 2021.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

When I was campground host back in 2014 up above Truckee, CA. We were instructed to let generator run past posted hours if violator say they're on CPAP. This rule was dictated by ADA. No exceptions. So, everyone heading to doc to get script for CPAP so they can run their genny. Like an old neighbor 15 yrs or so ago. Was on disability and had a blue HC tag hanging from his rear view mirror. Did not stop him from splitting wood all summer long or carrying bundles of shingles up a 40' ladder when he re roofed his house lol.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

The best were the cheap geezers with expensive MHs with onboard generators at the state park campgrounds who reserved a non electric site to save $5, then ran thosse things 24/7, while surrounded mostly by tent campers. Inconsiderate indeed.

RE: Virginia GCWR rules / commercial / travel trailer

I got the f350 srw 11300 gvwr, if registered that way it is right at $100 more to register annually. Tell them 10000 gvwr and a cheaper registration annually. Yeah but what happens if you are pulled over and they realize your tags don't match real GVWR? Besides I am talking about a 14,000 lbs gvwr dually ;) Yeah:S. Because that happens so often I've never seen nor heard of it happening to anyone in 40 years of driving. Slap your head all you want ;) but what you are suggesting is technically fraud (tax evasion), no? I know my vehicle is 14,000 lbs GVWR, it says so on the sticker and I go and tell them it is 10,000 lbs GVWR... No shooting offense but why willingly put yourself in a situation where you can be dragged through the system. I am pretty sure nobody will pull you over for fun and check your tags for correct weights but it MAY happen if you were involved in a (serious) accident, no? No and No......unless you like drama. It's a non issue unless you are operating commercially in VA. :S :S :S

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

Lots of Grand Design units for sale in Gadsden. I'm surprised people think those are good quality durable units on the web reviews, to me they are built like ultra light models. Very thin counter tops, very light duty cabinets and the floors flex as I walk around. Grand Design did a great marketing job and created a cult like following which I never bought into despite owning two Grand Design products. The first built in 2013 was ok, but nothing above previous owned trailers built by Forest River or Thor companies. The second built in 2019, a Solitude which is their self proclaimed top of the line, was absolute junk. So much so that we dumped it at a loss to get from under the recurring issues and trips back to their factory. Nothing much Grand about them.

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

Articles in business and trade publications like that or corporate reports reflect the past. Orders are not sales. They have to have a rosy picture for the investors and always paint it that way. Wait 6 months to a year until inflation, which is running away with no topoff in sight, and the increased prices of energy and materials catch up with the RV industry. Plywood has more than doubled in price, steel and other metals also. That has to be passed on in future prices which will eventually slam the brakes on sales. Then they tear up or hit delete key on the orders.

RE: Loose Grab Handle

If using those toggle bolts. You might have to snip those expanding ends to get into that narrow wall. Those toggle bolts are made for 2" regular homes where as the RV walls are 1"-1 1/2". 2" walls in regular homes? Remove the handle, take a drill bit and mark it with a piece of tape so you don't penetrate the interior. Drill out the holes and rout the bit around at an angle, creating a cone in the interior foam. Inject some epoxy, power grab, liquid nails etc into the holes, then reinstall the handle after it has cured.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

...going to be annoyed that you haven't bothered to invest in an appropriate solar setup for your usage. ...solar set up cost about the same as a factory installed built 5500 Onan. Being annoyed at other people that they haven't spent a few extra thousand dollars (at least) so *you* don't have to hear a generator... priceless :R ;) This entire thread is priceless lol.

RE: Border open?

What a joke. They're initiating a "GROUP" to study it....again? https://www.reuters.com/world/americas/canada-soon-say-how-it-will-ease-curbs-us-border-fully-vaccinated-citizens-pm-2021-06-08/ This was said over a month ago. and the results are??? Well, no problem. As I said previously, if the border didn't open by April 21, we wouldn't be heading north this year or ever again. And it didn't and we aren't. We have a contract pending on the RV and will NOT be buying another. It was a good run while it lasted, over 250,000 RV miles since 2003, (9 driving trips to Alaska and Canada) but as long as the idiot politicians continue to play politics, they won't have us in the game. A great time to sell a high end RV though. :S Has nothing to do with politics, but everything to do with people's safety. “Safety” according to which political party? Last time I looked the rest of the world wasn't made up of reps or dems and they got to share in the pandemic too. Many of the same precautions were implement all around the globe. Didn't look like party affiliation to me. Too many people get but hurt if they can't have their own way. Where in the US or a state constitution does it give government the responsibility to "keep folks safe"? I have now heard "we're keeping you safe" or some rewording of it enough times in a year it makes me want to hurl chunks when I hear it again. Quit being wussies. We're well on our way to raising a 2nd generation in a row of those. My HR dept and new hires over the last few years confirm that. Personal responsibility is very rare.

RE: Idaho raising rates at selected state parks

This is nothing. State and Federal Budgets are a mess, some a lot more than others, and no bureaucracy generates one dime of income, that comes from taxes and fees. The can can only be kicked down the road so far, and since March 2020 they've been kicking continuously. This bubble will burst soon and make 2008/2009 feel like it was just a small bump in the road.

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. PhilH............ Perhaps you need to get a Realtor involved in your truck order fiasco?

RE: Back before cellphones

I remember before cellphones when we walked to school, uphill both ways, in 4' of snow, with no shoes.

RE: GRRR Ford Dealer - 2022 SD

Could be worse, you could be waiting and wondering about a Chevy. :R Could be worse than that. He could have bought a ram. Haven't bought anything yet :) Whoever did this never expected this customer would have access to the order and change records. Now, the tough part is going to getting this straightened out, and possibly even determining who was responsible. Good luck but they most likely will tell you to pound salt.

RE: Still very tempting to buy my totaled TT back

Buy it, do the repairs and go camping/traveling. If you can't sell it in a few years, give it away. My only concern would be the salvage title. Your state does not require RV insurance. Ask your insurance agent what happens if, while towing, the frame or axle breaks and the TT causes a crash. Are you covered for liability? The tow vehicles liability insurance would cover it just like it does even when you have specific RV insurance.

RE: The Home Depot is my new Amazon

Recently I needed some stain for my fence. I could drive 10 miles to HD and pay $29.99 for a gallon…. Or, have then deliver it to my door 2 day later for no additional cost. Which way should I go  :? I would drive 10 miles and pick up the stain. If you go in person you know what you are getting and not something picked/shipped by a new employee who thinks all stains are the same. What? If I order a gallon of CWF someone will send me a gallon of ACE Wood Royal? Come on man lol. I have gotten what I have ordered 100% of the time no matter if it's paint or a pair of underwear.

RE: GRRR Ford Dealer - 2022 SD

One of the things that people like about Tesla is that there isn't a dealer involved in the purchase. You fill out your order on-line and all the sales office does is make sure that the legal paperwork is done and teach you how to use the car. I know that a lot of states forbid direct sales but I don't believe that it is for the benefit of the customer. It's also problematic to tow a 5th wheel with a Tesla.

RE: Quiet series generator 9500 watts!!!

10-30 times louder? Someone needs to read up about the db scale. :B He references the Honda which is listed 59 dB, since the power doubles for every 3 dB of gain, 62 dB is double the racket of the Honda, 65 dB is double the 62, 67 is almost double of the 65. That's **** close to 10 times louder. The difference between a quiet conversation and having a hoover exhaust stuck in your ear. Does anyone really give a ratsass? No quite. Twice the perceived loudness is a 10 db increase. Maybe on Fantasy Island, but whatever you say.

Hazard Fraught advertises it as super quiet and it may be, when compared to a 737 at takeoff.
