RE: 2016 Ford Chatteau 22e pricing..........

Thanks for the replies! Yes, inspections are vital and know my way around a vehicle well so will be checking every single cabinet/beneath beds/roof/undercarriage/etc for anything odd/wet! Seller already knows we're buying subject to this inspection. My cousin is purchasing since he just retired and wants to do some traveling, so trying to do the best job for him. Price wise, I know it's a bargain price if everything holds up to my flashlight and 2 hours of thorough testing. I still love my 2004 E450 4x4 which is holding up quite well for such an old unit. Lastly, many of these 22e's have the V8 engine....quite glad this one has the almost bullet-proof V10 which I also have in my the V10!

RE: 2016 Ford Chatteau 22e pricing..........

Thanks Bob! Meeting owner at 2pm on Sunday to run all systems and road test. Quite impressed with condition/mileage. The appraiser in me searched for comparable units and this is the lowest priced unit nationwide. He only put it on Facebook today. I'm quite familiar with RV's so hoping nothing pops up unexpectedly during my inspection. Appreciate the feedback from you as always!

2016 Ford Chatteau 22e pricing..........

Found a one-owner 2016 22e with 10,900 miles in virtually new condition with V10 engine. Everything works, Onan 4000 with 133 hours, corner bed, circular dining, and only used on weekends by retired minister. Asking $45k and settled on $40k since it has original tires. Top to bottom saw nothing wrong anywhere. Have NOT purchased it just looking for more info. Found same model with equal mileage listed at $69,950!!! Just curious what the "thinkers" have to say!! Let me have it (haha....I know how this board can be sometimes). Thanks for feedback!!

RE: Dry as a bone,…again

I was losing ALOT of water flowing out the vent tube and filler pipe while traveling; especially doing a sharp turn at speed and could watch it spilling out the side (some folks thought I was losing gas). To fix this, I put a turn-off valve in the line for the vent tube (used a on/off valve for lawn mower gas line). Also, I shove a piece of old towel into the filler pipe and cap the filler tube while traveling. I used to lose 1/2 my 40 gallons of water during a trip and now, not one drop! I've spent 7 days on the beach dry camping and still had water. Traveling uses a lot of wasted water right out the side of the RV.

RE: recommendations for class C for overnights at ski resort

Check with Quigley FIRST.....they do NOT convert every RV out there. They have length/width/weight requirements that must be met or they will NOT convert it. Last conversation I had, it had to be 0-5 years old.

RE: HarvestHost......anyone using it?

Yes, the lack of a real map showing the HH sites prior to joining is really a poor business decision IMHO. We're all grown adults who have $$ to spend on memberships that may benefit us as well as the product being sold (overnighting). But "sight unseen" leaves an empty feeling inside and warning flags galore.

HarvestHost......anyone using it?

Saw ad on Facebook and since I don't travel often, and rarely like staying in the campgrounds, wondering if this might be a good option? Stayed in Wallymart parking lots overnight and it's ok but sometimes quite loud/bright but doable. Free parking overnight on farms, wineries, etc. for an annual fee of $79. Only drawback from literature I saw was the need to arrive before closing time. I guess so they know you're a member and legit. PS: Other than calling a local campground and paying to empty tanks, are there other places that offer this well-needed facility while traveling and boondocking?

RE: Mini-split in compartment

Hmmm....cloudy/rainy days don't allow much solar energy for your batteries. As mentioned above, I wouldn't consider boondocking without the option of running a generator to power a/c & heat as well as keeping your battery bank fully charged. What if you have a battery failure? No propane, no generator and you're in for an awful time. I spent 5 days on a deserted island with 40mph winds/rain/clouds and was sooooo thankful for my generator! Weather can change on a dime and your outdoor experience must be able to adapt. Good luck.

RE: Height of class C?

Yep, definitely measure your vehicle! Don't forget, size of tires could increase this height ( I have taller tires for better ground clearance ). Had to make sure of my height when building my RV garage last summer; measure twice to avoid serious damage.

RE: Replacing Ford drivers seat........

Yep.......confirmed with SeatShop and that's correct. Looks similar but is wider than standard. Guess I'll just get local upholstery shop to fix the bottom seat for me. Thanks all for the replies!!

RE: Replacing Ford drivers seat........

Well, placed an order with the "SeatShop" for just the bottom cushion. They just called me and stated "we've never found our product to work for an RV" and refunded my money. Hmmmm, stated on their site this was for an econoline Ford E-250, E-350 seat. I've got the E-450 but shouldn't make any difference. Any comments?

Replacing Ford drivers seat........

2004 Ford E-450. Anyone replace their drivers side seat? Trying to search online but limited results for Class C. Was going to call savage yard to see if they may know of a source, but, would rather install new versus used. Last option, have the seat reupholstered but Covid has made that somewhat difficult with delay times. Thanks for any leads.

RE: Bedroom tv in CA 28a

My 2004 Fourwinds 5000 28A came with a TV cabinet in the corner of the wall backing to the shower and was pre-wired. I also ran an electrical cord from inverter beneath RV and up through the floor to run TV from house batteries. I only use this if kids in camper and they use the TV/DVD to watch their movies. You could also do similar in yours. Good luck.
