Oldie but goody???

I am considering the purchase of an Alpenlite. I am concerned that I won't be able to get parts . Also that it will break down as it is old, I am deciding between it and a Grand Design. I have had 11 different RV's and have always had on. I am anxious o hear from all but especially the owners of the oldies.

Long trips

On long trips do you wish you were driving or pulling a different rv than what you have. If so what would it be? Or do you have just the right rv for traveling up to 4000 miles over 4 to 6 weeks. This summer we would like to take a trip from Utah over to the Atlantic seaboard. We have a 30 foot 5vr weighing about 15000 pounds.

Long Road trip

We are going on a long road trip this spring and summer...about 4 to 6 weeks. DO you wish that you were driving a motorhome ?

comfortable ride in an one ton dually??

We are the new owners of a Cedar Creek 33 ft and pulling it with a 2001 Dodge Dually Diesel. She weighs in wet at 15,000 lbs. I have gotten good advise here about this issue of comfort and have done a few things like air ride seats and I am now replacing the shocks with the best out there I have been told. My wife needs a better ride. Not sure of what to do next. There is Kelderman for about 2k. I have tried a new one ton and did not notice much difference. I am wondering if this is just something one deals with. I mean learns to tolerate. Maybe better off with a class a or maybe get the same suspension put on my truck?

reliabilty

We just about bought a Grand Design and first did some research on quality and found that it is not just GD with issues but most of the 5vrs. Unless one buys the oldie but goodie around 2009 and earlier. Then we looked at pushers and found that they have all the goodies most of the time. But my number one issue is having a trouble free vacation. I am beginning to realize I will be dealing with breakdowns regardless of the make. Seems to me that to get reliable rvs I might be better off getting a pusher. We had a pusher for 2 years and have had all the other types also. Those two years with an older pusher were trouble free and the guy that bought it is having the same experience. If we got one we would be looking at 2005 probably and older...budget 50k Your thoughts??

RE: 5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

You probably don't have the rear axle capacity to carry that pin weight, even with a dually (2001). The engine will handle it fine. Maybe not at 70mph, but at any reasonable speed. How do I find out ???

5.9 Cummins Diesel Towing capacity

We are looking very seriously at a 5vr that total GVWR is 15,000 pounds. My dodge dually is 2001 dually. JUst had the tranny completely rebuilt and it has been chipped. Not sure about being able to pull such a load over a mountain pass. Please advise asap??? Thanks so much

Dutchmen

So why is it that Dutchmen change their model names so often. Like they use to have Denali before Astoria and just a little while before then it was changed again?? We are considering a Astoria

Older MH mpg with diesel

We are considering a purchase of a 15 to 20 year old MH. I am wondering what the MPG would be. Probably a 30 to 36 foot with or without slides. Driving around 60 mph and just two of us and pulling small lite truck

RE: wind

How does this issue compare with a class a gasser and a class c?

wind

Just bought class c motorhome Leperchaun 27foot total. 2019 So driving in wind seems like a much harder job than towing a 5th wheel which we have also owned or a bumper pull. Is this just something I need to get use to ? Of maybe I was just in some real hard wind. WOuld a longer one work better? It does have large sway bars on it front and back

RE: Best Class C for the money

Our eyes are on a 27ft Maybe 60 to 71

RE: Best Class C for the money

I am 72 and we think a class a would be too much to handle. We think also that having a short class c we would not need to pull a toad

RE: Best Class C for the money

Don't need advice on what to post or expect but thanks any way. I do appreciate the info posted otherwise. Yes we will need sleeping quarters and for just the two of us and most of our usage is travelling. Yes will need a toad.

Best Class C for the money

We are looking for the most reliable Class C out there. I have run a search and have digested those results. I am looking especially for those that have had class c's.

Folding mattresses

We have a very nice coachman class c. With folding mattress. We need to find a softer one and have had no lick. Anyone find one?

Ground clearance

We have a 26ft Coachman which is a perfect fit for us as it is short enough that it is pretty much like just driving a big pickup. However the ground clearance is only about 8 inches. I could increase that by 3 or so inches by putting in a macerate pump and change the pipes to fit the new design which would be nice but is gaining 3 inches or so really worth it?
