RE: Killer Chicken Thigh Marinade

Thanks for sharing. Prefer dark meat and will have to try it.

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

Tiffin over Winnebago but IMHO Entegra (Aspira and up) and Newmar are the better Model A's in this class.

RE: Flat tow setup

If you're handy, consider installing a baseplate, toad wiring and a Ready Brute Elite tow bar yourself. Spent $1800 on setting up our Grand Cherokee. Would not be surprised if there are on-line videos showing how to install on a CR-V. I found the videos extremely helpful.

RE: Need Help on how to get health insurance while traveling

We're going to set up our domicile with MyRVMail in Crestview, FL this summer. I called concerning ACA PPO plans and they are still available in the area.

RE: We're you apprehensive going full-time?

Not apprehensive at all and understand there will be a huge learning curve when we start. We begin our full time adventure this fall and have been wanting to do it for the past 15yrs. Read some books, follow bloggers and sites like this are great. I retire next month and DW retires in August. We want no strings attached with a sticks and bricks, look forward the freedom of full time travelling and seeing North America.

RE: 2018 Chevy Equinox 1.6L diesel for toad

I'm looking to get the 2018 Chevy Equinox 1.6L diesel AWD. Dinghy tow list says The AWD can be towed. Anyone out there towing the 2018 Equinox 1.6L diesel AWD? Any issues I need to know before I purchase the car? I believe there's been reports of the death wobble with the Equinox and it's electronic power steering system? May want to do some searches to confirm?

RE: Set up a Anchorage, Alaska domicile?

Since the combination of sales tax and health insurance seem to be the drivers on this, look also at Nevada, there are some counties offering PPO plans, no income tax, vehicle and sales taxes I'm not sure. Thanks for the suggestion. Via search: "Nevada's statewide sales tax rate of 6.85% is eighth-highest in the U.S. However, local sales tax rates can raise the sales tax up to 8.265%".

RE: Set up a Anchorage, Alaska domicile?

I would look over the escapees web site and all the work they have done. I know it’s tempting to look at alternatives but there is a reason Florida Texas and South Dakota are the main states used unless you have family or some ties to another state. I wouldn’t reinvent the wheel . We're not going to be moving anywhere (other than in the RV) after selling our house next spring. Would have larger items shipped direct to us and not through AK.

I know it’s tempting to look at alternatives but there is a reason Florida Texas and South Dakota are the main states used unless you have family or some ties to another state. I wouldn’t reinvent the wheel . Familiar with Escapees. Of the 3 states mentioned, only Florida has a PPO Managed Care Plan for those under 65. Would likely use the Escapees Florida location mail service (if Florida domicile set up) and saving the 6% Florida and 1% County sales taxes is a huge savings. If South Dakota had a PPO plan, we would set up there with their advantages and 3% sales tax.

RE: Set up a Anchorage, Alaska domicile?

I know Alaska is touchy on folks domiciling because of the Alaska Permanent fund they offer their residents. Have read of them checking entry records to verify residence. Since you are not looking (at least didn't mention it} at filing for the funds you may not have a problem, but be aware that they are watchful and cautious on the issue of residency or domicile. Thanks for bringing this up! I am not interested in claiming the Alaska Permanent fund.

Set up a Anchorage, Alaska domicile?

DW and I are going full timing next year. At this point we’re planning to purchase a new Dutch Star 4328 next fall (Newmar factory pickup) to begin our journey. Originally was planning on going the LLC route but due to a recent iRV2 poster reporting issues with a 3 axle RV registered to a Montana LLC getting a $1K ticket at a IN rest stop for not having a commercial fuel tax permit/sticker, I’m looking for another alternative and Alaska is one of them. Considering setting up a domicile in Anchorage, AK for the following reasons: 1) No state income taxes 2) No sales taxes in Anchorage 3) Low vehicle registrations. State website reports $250 for a motor-home. 4) No vehicle inspections 5) PPO managed care coverage is available via Premera BC/BS of Alaska. Even our local primary care physician on the east coast is in network and could keep him if we want (at least at first). This is key because we’re both 2-3yrs under 65 6) There’s a UPS Store in Anchorage who could potentially handle mail forwarding (haven’t contacted them yet). Florida was going to be our choice but would pay a 7% sales tax w/o an LLC. Naturally I’m looking for legal alternatives to forgo paying a sales tax. After just 12 months, we could switch to a Florida domicile and forgo any sales tax (IF we didn't like the AK domicile) This is an advantage of being a full timer. New Hampshire is potentially another alternative but Alaska looks far better at this point. What am I missing here? Thanks in advance.

RE: New York Empire Pass

If you like old boats make time to see the Clayton, NY Boat Museum. https://www.google.com/search?q=clayton+ny+boat+museum&oq=clayton+ny+b&aqs=chrome.2.0l6.10859j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
