RE: Newmar Sold

As a long time Newmar owner, this makes me a bit sad. Hopefully Winnie doesn't screw it up. Yeah that !!! I hope Newmar never drops their quality or their support. The Newmar we have now will be the last one we will ever own. Simply because it will last until we can no longer use it.

RE: Southern Louisiana in November

So what's Southern Louisiana in November like? Thinking about heading that way and taking in Grand Isle SP and what ever. Coming from the midwest and wanting to escape the cold. Want to take in several State Parks, but not the NOLA scene. Cities aren't us. Been to Palmetto Island SP years ago and loved it. Any recommendations/avoidances to be aware of? Thanks I'd be more interested in the availability of low cost RV parking. the way to spend the winter with out breaking the bank.

RE: Best route to I15 traveling north from Kanab

Thank everyone for their response. Saw some 8% long grades and the point about few pull off's and slowing traffic we decided take 89 to 70 and then to 15. Wife points out she can go by “Big Rock Candy Mountain” if we gothat way so you know what she voted ??All 3 highways cross the same mountain range, both 14 &20 are Both very doable in any motor home, 70 you must cope with the truck traffic.

RE: Best route to I15 traveling north from Kanab

I would use 20, not 14. Why? it's 6 of one half dozen of the other. We've been both routes, I liked 14 better.

I didn't think that was a 170K coach. some one thought it was a good deal, because it is no longer on the page....

RE: Best route to I15 traveling north from Kanab

14 isn't that bad either, brings you to Cedar City on 15. Pretty scenic route too. Aren't the Zion Tunnels on 14? No they are on 9 thru the park.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

You must have an extremely clean air compressor , drain the water out of it lately. Yes and yes, it also has a filter. I don't like buying air tools either.

RE: 2000 Dutch Star dash cracked

The plastic decorative fascia of one of the dash pieces around the radio was badly cracked. Is there a way to get these places replaced? Call Newmar, they will have a part number and a web page to order. Newmar parts

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

When winterizing don't forget insuring the holding tanks are clean.

RE: Any of you guys winterizing with air only?

In my 10+ years of travel trailer ownership here in the Pacific NW, I've never used anything other than compressed air to blow out my lines and winterize. I haven't used any of the pink stuff, apart from pouring some down the drain traps and to maintain the toilet seal. That's all we do. Drain, Blow, yer done. I have a fitting that fits the fresh water inlet point that has a regulator that is set to city water pressure. When I drain, I tilt the coach so every thing drains.

RE: Fuel economy

We weigh 55,500 lbs. plus pulling a 4,200 lb. toad. We drive about 65 mph (unless in CA, 55 mph) and get about 6.5-6.8 mpg. MM. Moving a load requires energy.

RE: Class A drive tires

We run Michelin 275/70/22.5 they have preformed well, I put them on in 2010 and 70,000 miles ago. I changed the two steer tires this year. I flat spotted them in the frost heaves on the Al-Can.

RE: Would this be crazy??

This is a tough question for someone else to answer. One man's crazy is an others genius :B. While the amounts of initial outlay may be similar. I think that's the only comparison. With a new truck, you end up with Well a new truck and keep an almost new trailer. The truck would be under warranty and you should know the condition/history of your trailer. With a 10+ year old class A, you will be buying someone else's problems and without warranty or fore knowledge of it's shall we say quirks. That's not to say there aren't any decent RVs in that age range, but I have been around RV's my entire life and my family and I have owned many and every one I've ever seen has its own quirks/issues. You indicate you are pretty handy and could handle most DIY projects, but is that how you want to spend your time? Some people enjoy working on them as much or more than camping in them. A couple of things to think about. Your current trailer is only a couple of years old. Did you buy it new? If so, you know how its been cared for. You know its good points and bad. Do you have any experience with older RVs? Do you know what to look for to cull the "good" from the "bad"? Many 10+ year old RVs have low mileage, but that's not necessarily a good thing. Vehicles that sit for 11 months out of the year with no or very intermittent use don't age well. Most 10+ year old RVs have been stored outside and uncovered most/all of their life and most have not received proper maintenance when it comes to roof and window sealants. Most have been exposed to some leak damage somewhere. If you don't like your trailer or want the class A experience, that could be a determining factor. There are pros and cons to travel trailer/fifth wheel vs motor home. You don't indicate any parameters other than cost, but at 60K you are in the territory of new class C or newer low end class A units. Yep.. and when it is raining like hell, wind raging, he can pull into the camp spot , push a few buttons. level up. and kick back. rather than getting out and setting up the trailer. Every device we camp in is a device that needs maintenance.

RE: Would this be crazy??

Do your home work, there are some very nice M/H for sale now the 2002- thru-2008 with out EPA equipment. I'd be searching for a Beaver, Newmar -mountain Aire or higher or several other high end coaches. We love our 2000 Newmar, is has been bullet proof.

RE: Class A drive tires

I just opened the ad, @ $400 each I would have passed too. (I read your post as all 4 for $400, not $400 each). That's how I read it the first time too. (each) no! Take about confusing. When it says "selling for $400.00 each" it sure reads like $1,600 for the 4! For $100 each I'd consider it. I guess I'll be shot, I missed the "Each" the first time
