RE: Thinking of Winnebago Via purchase..advice?

I had a Via 25T for 5 years and loved it because it suited our lifestyle at the time. We downsized from a 40' diesel pusher because it was becoming too much work, towing a car was also too much work & worry, and we wanted to get off the highways and see small town America. This led to a different type of camping experience and most of the time we spent 2 or 3 days at a campground before moving on to the next one. The travel days were used for sightseeing and shopping. The Via was great for pulling into any layby or viewing area as quick as we saw one. Did not have to worry about 40' of rv plus a car. On the few occasions when we spent a week or two in one location, we arranged to rent a car before we arrived at the campground. For 5 years we saw a lot of western states from off the highway and loved the many small towns and small rv parks. Over that time frame, and numerous trips, we travelled highway 1 or 101 from Neah Bay in Washington down to Chula Vista in CA. After 5 years, our grandkids were at the age where they wanted to camp with us, and we were delighted to take them with us. My wife and 2 grandkids made the twin beds in the rear into a king and slept there, and I slept on an air mattress on the floor in the front. That was our last trip in the Via, and we switched to a Jayco Precept 31ul which sleeps 7 comfortably! I loved the Via, and although it was a bit cramped at times, particularly on a rainy day, it was the perfect rv for us at that time. Some likes and dislikes. Likes: huge outdoor storage in the 25T, so easy to park and set up, front seats turned to provide more seating space, loved to drive it with that huge class A windshield and roomy front cab, and 15+ mpg. Dislikes: not many, MB service was a pain at times trying to find a Sprinter service location at MB dealers, service also costly, dumping the tanks was awkward, but I am short so I could sit under the slide and also sit to run the macerator for the gray tank. From what I understand, they became so costly, $160,000+, that people stopped buying them and moved to the class C MB. If it suits your lifestyle then go for it. If you are looking at any model other than the 25T, be careful on outside storage. When we first looked at our 25T, I had my wife stand by the sink and tell me where she was going to put everything. It means shopping every few days, but that is the trade off for being able to go anywhere. Sorry for the long reply, but hope this helps. Let me know if you have more questions.

RE: Northeast Oregon

We have also stayed at Boardman Marina RV Park and it is a great spot, right on the Columbia River. If you go across the bridge to Washington, the Columbia Crest Winery is right there.

RE: Ceramic Waxes

I used to use Nu Finish twice a year, and it was an all day project to wax the motorhome. A friend who shows hot rods told me about Lucas Slick Mist which is a spray on wax, and I use it every time I wash the rv. Gives a brilliant shine and water beads up in the rain. It doesn't matter how long it lasts since I use it every time I wash the rv, which is at least once a month. It is a blue bottle available at Wally World for about $8, and I get about 3 waxes of the rv with it. I also use it on the cars and is super easy.

RE: Surge protector and water filters

You may also want to consider getting a water pressure regulator. Here is a link with info and regulators: I bought the Fairview 55 PSI inline regulator with great flow and am very pleased with it. My setup is the Camco blue water filter and the Fairview attached to it so that the pressure is controlled before it gets to my hose. Last thing, I use a Zero G water hose that is really easy to coil even in cold weather. Enjoy your rv and camping.
