RE: GAS CLASS A. Vs. Dually

We started with a 36' travel trailer and a Chevy 2500 crew cab diesel PU. Switched to a diesel pusher. It made our travels much more comfortable and a lot easier. No more driving an oversize truck in cities with parking issues. I wish we had started with a DP.

RE: Retiring from the RV world

Frankly I doubt you'll be selling a 20-year-old 40-ft DP to someone new to RVing. And, will that particular buyer want a Cadillac SUV as a toad? Certainly don't limit yourself. Personally, I'd price them separately, and also have a package price at a lower amount in the event such a buyer comes along. If you sell one before the other, no big deal. It's not as though you're trying to sell a 3-legged table if one sells first and you end up with the other for a while longer. If it does not sell as a package we will keep using it. I do not want the problems of selling/storing all the other items individually. I would never sell the car first anyway. I appreciate your thoughts and you may be correct. I trust one day someone that realizes the total cost of setting up a Class A coach will be interested.

Retiring from the RV world

After 14 years of spending the summers traveling the US & Canada we have decided to call it quits. I have begun to advertise the coach and towed vehicle for sale. So far I have placed an ad in the classified section of IRV2. I will place further ads after the first of the year. I am attempting to sell as a package that includes everything needed to begin traveling after adding food and clothes to the coach. Coach will have full PM service and freshly cleaned carpet before I let it go. I still have to schedule that. What are your thoughts on the possibility of selling the total package.

RE: Hydraulic stabilizers down during storage

I store ours with the air dumped and the jacks up. I do not change the tire pressure. On or about the first of every month I run the generator, under a load, and take the coach for a drive on the interstate to get everything hot. So far that has worked well for me. Ours is stored inside a building and plugged into 20A service.

RE: RVs over 10 years old are valueless

We have a 20 year old motor home and have never been refused, even when they had the ten year rule. It is in great shape.

RE: Class A quality

We shopped for 11 months and looked at several coaches and talked to other campers. We decided we wanted a diesel pusher either a Newmar or Tiffin. We ended up with a Newmar Dutch Star. Our coach is now 20 years old. Nothing Newmar has failed. We replaced, radiator and all hoses, tires, batteries, carpet and refrigerator in the past three years. We are completely satisfied with the coach. I don't know what material the roof is but it seems to be in very good condition. The roof material should not be a decision factor. Floor plan, chassis type and quality should be.

RE: Which old motorhome to buy

Three years ago we bought a 2001 Newmar 4095 DSDP. We are quite pleased with it. I knew that I would have to spend some monies on it to get it in satisfactory shape for long trips. After 16K miles of travel we are ready to let it go. If I had it to do over I would take the same route. Older well built coaches seem to be a better value than many newer ones, if you don't need all the new gadgets.

RE: Used class a ?

We started looking for a 36 foot DP after 11 months of looking we ended up with a 40' Newmar Dutch Star. We love it and are now glad we went to the larger coach.

I would sell it for 60K which includes the car and all the items et. that are in the basement or inside. 2001 Newmar Dutch Star model 4095 CAT 330 HP engine, Allison 6 speed transmission. 72K miles Comes with 2014 Cadillac SRX set up with M & G breaking system and Blue Ox Avail tow bar.

RE: To portable dump tank or not to portable dump tank...

Years ago we stayed at a state park near our kids. At that time we had a TT. I had a 32 gallon Barker that I left in the back of the pick-up. I used a macerator pump to empty the RV tanks into the Barker tank. This system worked well for us. To move the TT, with its small holding tanks, every time I needed to dump was a pain.
