RE: Info on 5th wheel brand

Not true about multiple day dry camping. We ended up buying a 2019 Forest River 24 foot Cardinal Luxury. It has a residential refrigerator, two batteries and solar. We added a 5.5 Onan gen. We have been out four consecutive days dry camping and only moved to drain waste tanks and add fresh water. We run the gen 2 hours in the morning and two in the afternoon. We make sure we have full sun on the solar panels. The electrical monitors keep us in a safe range.

RE: Info on 5th wheel brand

Don't believe all the junk. Tiffin, who makes the Vilano, is the best manufacturer on the market. I just wish they made a shorter model. They standby all they sell.

RE: Larger 5th wheels in/on state and federal parks

Length is only one consideration when buying to camp in State and Federal RV parks. Another consideration is utilities. Most public RV parks do not have full utilities. We do some dry camping if that is all that is available. It is not first choice. When I backpacked I had none of that and it was great. I have grown out a little and have different ideas of fun. Public parks are more crowded and have more kids. Don't get me wrong I love the kids down the street. And love to see them having fun down there.

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

What does any of this have to do with a 5th wheel RV endorsement?

RE: California Non-commercial class A license ***New question***

I live in CA. I applied for the endorsement and the DMV clerk told me there was no such thing and referred me to the commercial DMV office. Her boss happened to walk by and asked me to follow him. He had me fill out an application for a 5th wheel endorsement and gave me two separate written tests. Eye examine, but no driving test or physical examine. He asked me what I drive and never made note of it. I passed the test and have the endorsement. The problem is the DMV manual is not well written and most DMV personnel just do not know. Even better, ask a traffic cop. They don't know either. Risk; cops don't know so a ticket is unlikely. An accident could be a problem if the insurance company knows the law. If you do not have endorsement, get in an accident and they know about endorsement, you loose.

RE: Will fifth wheel front hit truck back window?

If I am on level ground, NO; if I am pulling out of a driveway, YES. I know that for sure.

RE: Financing question

The home equity loan is cheaper and may qualify for a tax deduction. But the best financing is you. Pay cash.

Best Class C sprinter if you had lots of money

I just sold my 5th wheel. Ten years old and 40 feet long. I Like the Class C Sprinters. Everyone is making them. If you could afford any Class C Sprinter, who would you pick. If you have one, how do you like it? Thanks
