RE: Stimulus Check , what are you going to do with yours ?

I don't get one... But if I did, I'd give it to my niece who is struggling small business owner right now. Mike

RE: AZ Governor Statement on RV Travel during Stay At Home order

I appreciate the common sense thoughts and guidelines that appear present in the Az Gov's guidelines. Love how many take "excerpts" from the various guidance being provided to paint it in a negative light. Seattle Steve - Thank you for providing the full context that physical activity, while maintaining social distancing, is essential. Mike

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

Maybe half as expensive, but while you're paying a mortgage, the house generally appreciates. You're paying half but you never recoup any of that... it's all lost to depreciation or rent. Usually long term parks don't include electric.. they'll put you on metered. But then again, owning a house you pay electric as well. There's too much other stuff I'd miss, at least right now. I like having my yard. Like my shop out back to work on old cars. Like the pool on a hot summer day after yard work etc... I see myself on the road 3-4 months, and then returning for 3-4 and then back out again, until I can't do it anymore. Then I'll just be here. Mike

RE: Rallys

So, I guess DownTheAvenue should be part of the Coronavirus task force, because clearly he (or she) has more insight into when this will end than any one else. I didn't see anywhere in this thread that anyone was advocating scheduling a rally in the middle of a pandemic. What I did see was some posters HOPING that it is under control and we can start getting back to normal by the June timeframe. That is TOTALLY different than saying there should be something scheduled in the middle of the pandemic. Think you need to take a breath, calm down, and quit reading more into things than are there.

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

If you are going to go, I would go now before it gets worse. I would say your plan is reasonable, and you can get there with little to no exposure. Mike

RE: The perfect RV campground

To clarify my comment on price. Im willing to pay more (within reason) for a nice campground, well kept, spots not on top of each other like a RV resort. Doesn't necessarily have to be a huge distance, but decently spread out. Within reason is probably the key.. Am I willing to pay double (say $70 a nite?) Probably not. But Im not adverse to paying, say $45 a night, or $10 more than the average rate for an area. I do like my personal space. I still believe the number one consideration is location. Are you in an area that draws tourism or not? Many of us, I would surmise most, use campgrounds as a base location to go do things locally. I might hang at a campground for a day during a few day trip, but mostly, we go out and explore the local area, returning for dinner and a campfire maybe. Mike

RE: The perfect RV campground

I'm looking to design the perfect campground. What do you think is missing from RV campgrounds? - Management - experience - nature trails - broadband - lectures - scheduled events - food What have you experienced that is missing? So, actually all the things you identified would be at the BOTTOM of my list. My list would be Location Hookups (FHU or electric only with dump station). Level site (doesn't have to be concrete) Large site... Decent distance between sites (don't want to sit on top of each other) Nature trails or hiking trails will be nice, one item off your list. Not interested in scheduled events... broadband - I bring my own. Lectures - I can't think of anything I want go sit down to hear. Im not going camping to go sit down for a lecture. Management: not sure what you're meaning here. If you mean a well managed park, okay.. but reality is, generally speaking, my interaction with the management staff is on check-in. Don't even have to interact at checkout at most places. Price is down towards the end for me too. I'll pay more for a decent place with hookups and nice, large sites. Mike

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

Maybe California can continue to set the bar, and decline Federal assistance, and instead, use their surplus to get through this crisis. Let them tell the feds to use that funding elsewhere... Cuomo wants more. Not being political at all about it.. Seems like states with surpluses should use the surplus vice take federal aid. Mike

RE: Buyers market?

I thought you were talking about buying a RV from a private owner. Dealer is certainly a different situation. Many dealers are just flat stubborn, and it's way too early in my opinion to expect a fire sale from a dealer. Mike

RE: Buyers market?

I guess if you think you're taking advantage of a seller, you can always offer more than their asking price. Have no idea if it's a buyers market now or not. Could be in the future, but Im guessing the majority haven't felt the pinch enough yet to sell their RV. Mike

RE: Can You Pass Through States with Stay at Home Orders?

Give it a shot.. let us know if you make it through... You'll be the expert, and the guinea pig. Seriously, not sure how anyone on the RV forums would be qualified to answer this.. nor would I encourage you to follow any advice you get, other than the stay home advice. Mike

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

How about an ex wife who rips you off and then, when you finally had enough and leave, she criticizes you for leaving? Mike

RE: Senior Citizens Speak Up

The plot thickens. The governor of California just issued an order that all Californians must stay home. What if you don't have a home? Or what if your home has wheels? Can you role over to a free state? If I lived in California and my home had wheels, I woulda been long gone before now. Mike As a Californian will tell you, if you are not paying taxes in the state -- and specially if your poor state is being subsidized by their tax money, you have no right to speak about them and it's NOYB!:B California got enough of my tax money, and I got nothing for it.. so yeah, it is my business.
