RE: Buying a Motorhome not a mechanic

I have had 7 motorhomes over the years and only 1 was new. If you decide you want a different one (larger)you will take a big financial beating. There are many 1-2 year old units out there that somebody is selling because it was the wrong size or something else. Many of these are overpriced because people financed them and can't afford to sell them because they owe more than they are worth. I started in 1969 with a TT and have campers, and 7 motorhomes from a 21' class C to 38' Mountain Aire.

RE: Basic questions about Class B's

My Road trek '95D 190V has a 30 gal fresh water, 20 gal grey, and 12 gal black water. That beats what I had on my'75 GMC 26 footer. Add 15-17 mpg and it serves me great.

RE: Class B camper Van

Definitely check the bed and your height. That s how I got my RT 190V, My cleaning lady and er husband had gotten this one fro Louisville, KY and it was in great shape. Their first night out lasted half a night. He is 6'3" and the bed is 5'11". I bought it wen they got home and this is my 5th. year with it. It is my 7th. motorhome.

RE: Washer/Dryer + bunk beds + 2 AC's... does it exist?

If you are concerned with safety a school bus is probably the safest vehicle on the road. Each window has a steel frame that goes around the whole coach from the main frame on one side to the other side. They can roll over and still not crush. (50 years as a school bus driver) A class A is much easier to get all of the things you want. I have been RVing since 1969 and there are very few accidents involving RVs with injuries. I have had from my current Roadtrek to Mountain Aire, TT, and popups. Class A, B, and C. From my experience the Class C has the highest maintenance requirments of any with the constant work on the roofs. That cabover section bouncing unsupported gives great opportunity for leaks. Two Cs convinced me to be very cautious on them again.

RE: RoadTrek 200

I have a 190V '95 Dodge. there is a very active RT group on Facebook. I have 107K on mine and the garage put 5W30 Mobil 1 in by mistake 3 years ago. They offered to change it and I said I would try it to see if it ran through oil. It does not require any oil in 5000 miles and my mileage jumped to 16-17 with a 318 and driving 60-65. It is a lot smaller than my Mountain Aire was. My wife always said when I would die she would get a Roadtrek. She died 5 1/2 years ago and I got the Roadtrek. At 81 I am happy with it but still miss a large MH.

RE: Emergency roadside assistance

When I had Good Sam and a GMC Motorhome they would only take me to a Chevy dealer. It was a '75 GMC and had the Toronado front wheel drive. I had to pay $829, to get towed to a proper place. No more Good sam anything for me.

RE: Fridge On Propane Battery Amp Hr Draw??? How Much

In my 25 year old Roadtrek the frig runs on gas with no electricity involved. Itg is a 3 way frig. 110v, 12V, and LP. On 12V it will kill my lone battery in half the night. On LP it will run all summer on next to nothing.
