RE: Few questions from the future RV-er

Think about: What kind of travel do you plan? Full-time or part-time? Scenic trips or staying in one place? Hooked up to utilities or on your own for utilities? How many people and animals will travel with you? Where will you keep the RV when not traveling? Neighborhood parking restrictions? Storage yard costs? Will your chosen rig fit your body comfortably? Are you tall, short, wide, etc? Do you fit into the toilet/shower area? Who will service your rig? Engine/drive train stuff often has to go to one place and RV features to another. Are these service centers located near you? Will you be on pavement or off? You mention 4WD. Some people use their 4WD for boat ramps or to get out of their slippery driveways at home and some want to go out there and explore. A 4WD RV is NOT a rock crawler, and often will not fit into those off-road places seen in photos. You can do expensive damage to your RV by taking it where it ought not go. I say this as a person who has driven a 4WD RV for 29 years. And yes, I still love my 4WD RV. etc etc. You get the idea. Know the features you need or want. Study the specs. Be cautious about believing what salespersons tell you. THERE IS NO PERFECT RV. Choose one that meets most of your needs, get out there, and enjoy it!

RE: Should I carry a spare tire?

I have RV'd solo for almost 30 years and almost 200K miles. Always carried a spare. Needed it once, last year, when a road hazard destroyed a new tire somewhere in Eastern Oregon. I had a cell signal and was on pavement for the first time in days. Called AAA, they contacted a local guy. He came and did the job and I was underway again within an hour. That is service! As I have aged, I have become disabled and no way can I change the tire myself. My part of the job is to have a spare in good condition, to have good insurance and roadside assistance coverage, and to carry a means of summoning appropriate help (both cell phone and Garmin InReach). A prepared traveler is a happier traveler!

RE: Yet another reason to love trailering

Even in my 1960's days of family travel in a TT with no bathroom, it was still wonderful. We could fix our own meals and the kids slept better in their own familiar beds. As a solo adult RVing since 1991, i"ll say add a bathroom to the kitchen and the familiar bed and you've got travel paradise!

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

Just because you can, doesn't mean that you should. Initial cost is only the first cost of an RV. Then come costs for license, insurance, storage, maintenance, repairs, upgrades, etc etc. Get real about the whole picture and don't buy an RV if you have to take such a huge loan.

RE: Ft. Ord Dunes Campground

This plan looks good. Lots of campsites, accessible pathways everywhere. Are they taking reservations yet?

RE: 12v portable fridge/freezer

I have a Dometic CDF-11 12V compressor unit, purchased from Amazon as a supplement to my built-in 3-way unit. It has performed well for several years. Tiny, but that is all I needed, it fits between the cab's bucket seats, and I am able to lift it even with my bad back. Before choosing this unit, I read many views of similar products. Sources: Amazon, YouTube, Expedition Portal, etc.
