RE: Used class a

I was just going to suggest the Winnebago Journey. I don't think you'll find anything better for the year, or the money. Our 2003 Journey was 100% (yes, 100%) trouble-free. I'd buy one again in a heartbeat.

RE: Fuel mileage

The only hazard is the fool that don't know there is a slow lane over there in the right. And in how many states are you obliged to go 55 when towing. My old Dynasty w/ 450 hp would run 90 all day long in Texas but when I hit CA it was back to 55 because I was towing. I have seen min speed 0f 40 some places but the last I knew we all paid for those roads and if you hit someone going slower than you like guess what, ITS YOUR FAULT! Thank you Captain Obvious :C The only 40 mph speed postings you will see on US Interstate highways are MINIMUM speed limits (unless you're talking about exit ramp posted speeds :h) Also, in many jurisdictions it is illegal to drive more than 15 mph slower than the posted limit -- impeding the flow of traffic.

RE: Border

If everyone were to get vaccinated........ Novel idea. About 90% of new cases are unvaccinated individuals, and new covid deaths among vaccinated individuals are negligible. So, what is it that we're waiting for? .....

RE: Fuel mileage

If a driver is in the far right lane and doing 55-60 it’s hard for them to be the cause of an accident. Most of the time I suspect someone following the slower driver isn’t paying attention. Still, driving that much slower than the flow of traffic, even in the right lane, DOES create a hazard --- and we watched it happen. Sure, everybody should be paying attention, but an unnecessarily slow driver adds just one more cause for concern to those 'paying attention' to the general flow of traffic. Don't be rude. Don't be a fool. 55 is for secondary roads, not 70-75 mph interstates.

RE: Opinions on 2014-2018 Travel Trailers

First place: Airstream . . . Second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth places....anybody's guess. They all seem to go rapidly downhill from there. Just my personal opinion.

RE: An upgraded option for the half ton Pickup crowd

I'm a big Toyota fan, and have been for a long, long time, however that front end does make me cringe a bit. Almost looks like it should say Tonka rather than Toyota. I'm sure it's a fine truck, however. Maybe when I see one parked next to a Chevy HD it will take the edge off it!! :C

RE: Fuel mileage

The faster you travel the faster the gas disappears! Keeping speed 55 to 60 will help! We have big block Chev chassis and get 8+. Fords do not get good mileage. And please remember, if you DO subscribe to the "55-60' philosophy, please do so on US highways and not on 70-75 mph interstates. We just returned from a 3300-mile trip, and actually witnessed 3 cases where a pokey driver nearly caused an accident. 2 were RV's and one was a pickup. Safe travels.

RE: Saw a unicorn F-150 on the road yesterday!

So much of today's pricing has to do with demand. In the past 10 years, new passenger cars have gone up in price less than 5%, but new trucks have gone up approximately 40%. The components required to build a truck cost no more than the components required to build a car, so the only reason for the absurd increase is that American's are willing to pay it. Much like shoddy quality RV's -- they'll keep making them that way as long as people keep buying them. We'll all get smart one of these days ;)

Saw a unicorn F-150 on the road yesterday!

Yup, we saw it. A new F-150, regular cab, short bed, "base" truck --- actually going down the road! Haven't seen one in a long, long time. Now, bear in mind this base truck still carries a $30,000+ price tag, which is absurd in and of itself, but it restored my faith that not everybody that needs a truck goes crazy seeing how close to a $100,000 behemoth they can create. I must admit that I was a little disappointed to see it in white, with all the other color choices that are available to make it look less like a commercial vehicle, but all in all was still a bit surprised to see it at all. Just thought I'd share :C

RE: Converted 2006 F350 Turbo Diesel Ambulance Motorhome

Just one thought -- it still looks an awful lot like an ambulance on the outside. The thought that some people may have died in it may or may not freak out some buyers, so the less it looks like an ambulance the better, or so I would think. Maybe get rid of the extra lights on the outside, and have some cool graphics added to it. It needs to read RV more than it needs to read ambulance conversion. Workmanship does indeed look superb. Congrats!

RE: Small Class A vs Large Class C

I think you'd have a hard time going from ANY size Class A to ANY size Class C. Having owned both, bear in mind the Class A cockpit becomes part of the living area -- not so in Class C's. Also the tiny windshield with the cabover portion of the Class C hanging over it doesn't hold a candle to the panoramic windshields of Class A's. Lastly, the jammed-up foot room of a Class C cockpit doesn't begin to compare to the foot room of a Class A. There . . . and that's just the cockpit. You mentioned other things as well (dual vs. single AC, levelers vs. no levelers, etc.) I know you'll make the right decision based on your needs & likes, but I kind of see the way you're leaning. Happy travels!

RE: 2022 Chevy Silverado Reveal

I read it won't be until 2023 for HD's to get the new look and interiors. The HD's need a new look in the worse way. Those things are just freakin' ugly! That being said, I do love the chrome bar grille in one of the Silverado's shown. It's time for out with the black, in with the chrome, the way a vehicle is supposed to look!! :C

RE: Torn between two used Class A need help

I think you'll find the Winnebago IS better quality than the FR, but a thorough inspection should be done prior to a purchase. At half the price, seems like an easy decision.

RE: looking to buying a new class A we have questions ???

Hi, with that budget I’d look at Newmar or tiffin I FULLY agree -- with that budget you don't have to settle for a Thor product when it will get you a Newmar or Tiffin (and yes, I know Tiffin is now a Thor product, but it's still built in Red Bay, Al by the same people that built them before the recent acquisition)

RE: new topic Someone needs to start a new topic where everyone can argue about who knows the most about the subject to liven things up around here. :B That's nothing new -- I see it every day on this forum!! :C

RE: Low mileage V10s

The Ford V-10's have become pretty darn good engines, however it hasn't been sunshine,lollipops and rainbows all along. The earlier versions suffered spark plug blowout, PCV hose cracking, and exhaust manifold failure -- and these issues were not uncommon. Ford finally got things straightened out, and they became much better engines over the years.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

When I ordered my 2022 they said it would be in by the end of August. Now that we are into September I called to see where my truck is and they don’t have a build date for me yet ….. so it turns out I’m going to have to do a oil change on my 2021. . . . "Davenport, where's Mr. Griswold's car?? . . . . That's it --- it didn't come in!"

RE: GM and others shutting down production.

Too bad we don't have the know how/technology/workforce/ability/desire to produce these chips in the US. $15/hour minimum wage would make that exceptionally cost prohibitive. At least they'd have trucks to sell!!!!
