RE: SEMI cameras

There's plenty of semi dashcam videos on YouTube but bumper view sounds novel. I would add some giant flags or more LED lights. Be safe.

RE: Nexus class C

We visited a couple places and took factory tours, suggest you do the same and then compare with their tour. You'll see differences based on what you see and hear.

RE: Mystery Switch

If it's not a Ford looking switch then maybe it's your battery switch over, so that the coach can power the vehicle to jumpstart it.

RE: How many can they get in that camper?

Looks like there's a hardtop roof tent on top of the suv so that's 2 adults, or maybe 3 kids. I saw a teardrop trailer recently and the family said it also had 2 small bunks above their bed. I'm perfectly ok with 7mpg to get my 31' of space!

RE: Are you heading for Utah's National Parks?

Definitely suggest skipping Zion and going closer to winter. It's an urban nightmare: crowds, traffic, lines everywhere. There are so many alternate options vs the big names. I'd send everyone to Canyonlands too.

North or South from ABQ this weekend?

Looking for any thoughts as we look at the long weekend. We're in ABQ with an open itinerary, so debating between Taos/ Angel Fire/ Abiqui and White Sands/ Carlsbad, though we prefer both! Not sure how the current weather would factor in - and holiday crowds. We can go the other direction next weekend. Always appreciate your time and insights!

RE: Roadside Assistance

Me too. Happy with these basic services from Progressive, and rolling the dice on the rest. We've certainly spent money on repairs over the years but I don't think they'd reach what my premium would be.

RE: Considering move from class A to C

If you're thinking to downsize, I'd see how small you can go. We all have a tendency to carry too much, I have a few hundred pounds of excess stuff on the back axle right now! Very impressed by Europeans who come here with their rigs and what they can fit/ need. I agree with the MB/ Sprinter chassis and fitting into 1 parking spot - why not ?

Zion east - North Rim or Page ?

Looking East from Zion, there is plenty to see appreciate your suggestions as well. My question is about routing - We came down from Moab through Escalante and I'm a little tired of steep grades. How's the road (89A) to the north rim? How's cell service going down there? The other option is to take 89 to Page, and see the Dam (but not Antelope Canyon since it's closed) - deferring the North Rim for another trip. I'm guessing grades and cell reception is better on this route -? Thanks in advance!

RE: Loose Grab Handle

We kept upgrading screw sizes, then added a plate to the wall, and attached the bar to the plate. The plate is the full width of the wall to catch studs and is stainless (to match the new handle) which is like the ones used in bathrooms.

RE: Wheel simulators, tire valve extensions and other questions

We've had a variety of extensions and simulators. The lug nut variety of simulator we had required a really thin flat washer between the simulator and the simulator lug nut cap keep it from flapping around. Otherwise it was a nice design but I had to search all over to find that special washer. The grip type simulators fell off after a couple hundred miles, so that was a waste of money. Currently I've sprayed the rims with grey metallic paint and it looks just as nice so we'll stay with that solution (at least until the can runs out). We're well satisfied with Firestone transforce HT, and keep them aired up right at Discount Tire stores. We have straight metal extensions for the inners and the U style for the outers, but the simulators usually have to get removed, and sometimes the tires too. The fronts have plastic straight extensions and they work just fine.

RE: Campers helping campers

Drysdales set up next to Clampetts! There's a balance between being helpful and nosy, sounded like Mr. Drysdale stayed on the right side anyway- nice story. Thanks

RE: British couple buying an RV in the US

A friend did this a couple years ago coming from France. DM me.

RE: Class C RV cost in the Covid era...

Good data point, and what do you do with 2 RV? Rent 1 out? We're hoping they market stays strong until it's time to sell, selfish but true. Some people will never go back to flying, just like will stay w as remote workers.

RE: Time for some maintenance...

Thanks for the referral and please write a review at It's a really nice site to find a mobile mechanic, and local services.

RE: Buy new now or wait until end of summer

I'd suggest sell now and buy later, in line with previous comments. Certainly pricing will decrease as the season ends, and demand should level of as people travel internationally via plane again. I do believe a certain segment that is be to RVing will stay hooked and that will be constant (maybe share) growth for the industry. Plus all the #Vanlife lovers will age in the coming years and upsize, and that group will supersize into rolling houses.... so to speak.

RE: Blinds: corded vs cordless?

Instead of custom sizing, we bought cordless from HD - good quality, price, and they work nicely. They stay open when driving for better views, and since we didn't attach at the bottom to add flexibilty when closed. By going a bit past the window edge on each side, it adds privacy when they're down and no concerns when they're up. We removed the valence boxes rather than update their material.

RE: Where to begin

Old class C tend to leak in the upper bunk area first. You also want to check around for mold and decay from all those years of sitting. And also establish a budget (versus considering it a labor of love). The cost goes up significantly depending on your DIY skills. I think your plan is a good one: find out what it'll take to get the mechanics in order to be able to drive it, and then from there you can start on the house part, if it makes sense.

RE: Test charging stop for large EV’s, busses, trucks, mohos.

While I don't question any of the numbers above, I also don't question the business sense of these & so many other companies - if its not going to work, they're not going to invest $1 into it. Success (according to the masses at least) goes to those who make the most money, and the ones who lead this race are generally the ones who can think beyond the box. With wind, solar, and other power forms becoming popular, it could be reasonable that that coal plant has fewer customers, or that it's customers need less power - enabling more charging stations at the truck stop. From Wikipedia: In 2019 there were 241 coal powered units across the United States which generated 23% of the United States electricity in 2019, an amount of electricity similar to that from renewable energy or nuclear power... Installed capacity was about 236 GW. So if you have 5 coal plants per state today, then each serves a couple hundred miles- is there a need for 14 truck stops within each one's service region?

RE: Stupid question about tires

Our mechanic suggested nitrogen in the car tires if we did a rotation as winter approached. Apparentky it doesn't contract and expand as much in the cold and so is better in extreme temps. That was already a few years ago- the fad seems to have died down.
