RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

From what I have read in other posts it seems that they don't give you much. Some others here have bought a start up kit Like this one It would be a good idea to have something like this when you go to pick it up just in case. It is what I received when I bought mine from El Monte RV. They also gave me a set of Leveling Ramps

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

don’t overlook the 19RD from Canadian Rental Company in Kelona! If you could find one like this it would be a lot more comfortable with the rear Dinette that makes into a bed. Adventurer 19RD Also a Short Video

RE: Is this doable or am I overlooking something??

I have been thinking the same thing for my class C. Then I saw This post and it does seem doable. But my thought would be to use One of These they come in different lengths and I could put it where I wanted it. height=120

RE: Add a front cabover window - has anyone done it?

Boy you are going to be beat up on this one! :B My suggestion would to replace the roof vent over the cabover, if it has one, with a Skylight this will let the light in and can be covered if necessary. Some newer Class Cs have them. I would think it would be easier to seal up than a front facing window that is subjected to strong wind and rain while driving. There is a saying that you will hear pretty soon and often here,"windows in the front either have leaked, are leaking, or will leak." seems to be the only help some members can come up with which is no help at all. Good Luck!

RE: Hinged Maxxair vent covers will not swing open for cleaning

What IS interesting---- Maxxair come with stainless steel carriage bolts AND Nuts---NOT wingnuts. So, someone replaced the original and this is what happens. Doug This is true for all 3 of my other MaxxAir covers but the Fanmate 850 came with wing nuts so that it would be easier to open and fold over to clean under it,as did the replacement that they sent me,as pictured below height=330 As you can see there is a piece of springy metal that will engage the hex sides of the wing nut to keep it in place when tightened. height=220

RE: Hinged Maxxair vent covers will not swing open for cleaning

Use Liquid Wrench spray. Let penetrate for 24 hours. WD40 will not do the job. Doug Tried that too,but when the wingnut is galled to the bolt and there is no way to hold the bolt from turning it will not break loose,believe me I tried it all. Went so far as cutting slot in top of bolt to hold with a screwdriver,still no luck...

RE: Hinged Maxxair vent covers will not swing open for cleaning

I had the very same problem,tried everything that you did plus heat also trying to get to the screws that held the bracket to the vent edge. I even called MaxxAir,they had no answer except to cut the wings off the cover. It seems that the wing nut was galled to the stud and the stud is press fit into the landing. My final solution was to take my small air powered cut off tool and grinding it down so I could pop it loose. To Maxxairs credit after 2 calls trying to find a remedy they sent me replacements free. I then installed them after putting on a good coat of anti-seize. This may one reason that the new hinged ones have a pull pin latch like the new Fan Mate. I did change mine out to the new model so that would not happen again.

RE: Best tire inflator for dually tires

It looks like you did settle for the best solution,that is extending the valve stems. Might I suggest that maybe the next time you get tires or decide to make a permanent fix to install extended valve stems. The ones you need are from Borg AKA Your Tire Supply. Dually Kit They will look like this. The valve stems for Duallys. I have a set from another vendor that was the original maker of them and have been on my Class C for over 10 years with no leaks or problems. You can Check the pressure on all tires in a matter of minutes. Valve stems

RE: Best tire inflator for dually tires

I usually check and inflate my tires if needed before each trip,I have extended valve stems so no need for an extension. I wanted something that was accurate and easy to read and the the long foot on it is a plus,so I opted for This One

RE: F-150 +Lance 650 Cruise America Purchase

Well doing a bit of looking it seems that the ,Truck a 2017 Ford F150 XLT SuperCab with the 5.0 Liter V8 Engine is about $24000 and the camper you can buy for About $11000 US This may be what they are basing their value on.

RE: Rentals

The only way that I am familiar with the company is that my Daughter and Son in law used them last year when their trailer was damaged just before a preplaned family camping outing of several families The unit they rented was in very good shape and they were pleased with the rental,the price was right and the owner was a pleasure to work with,all in all a great experience for them and the said they would do it again and would have if this pandemic had not upended all of our plans. They seem to have some very good reviews that is one reason they considered it.

RE: Anyone rent out their camper?

Bingo. It's an excellent indicator that the thread is heading off the cliff. Well then lets get it back on track somewhat. Look at these articles they may give you some insight on the original question.

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

Looks like an amazing rig, but certainly not original... height=300 True they came about earlier but the designation was adopted as a Class "C" CHASSIS MOUNTED CAMPER from the old time fabricators that built them,one of which was a very good friend of mine.He has now passed but he and others in his fab shop built some of them. It was fun sitting around campfires with them and learning about the early motorized campers.
