Thor ACE 27.1 - used (2015 or 16) gripes or praises?

We are thinking of buying one of these due to the layout and we need to upgrade from a 24 foot class c now that we are full time. Does anyone have any input to add to this? Donna

RE: HOW do I do this?

If we come to an agreed upon price, we will go look at the motorhome. I will also contact local to that area rv dealers to see if they have any interest in consigning or buying outright and also put a listing up for the rv in that area (FB or CL) for a price that someone will want to take it off my hands for. All this before we go there to see it to know what my options are. I may have that part figured out. The next part is the paperwork involved in getting the new rv registered SOMEWHERE. Thanks to the person who mentioned the ride from michigan to western NY state...had not thought of that option (was stuck on not going back to eastern NY state) but i am also not sure if you need an appointment to do that. We will not be in one fixed place after purchase except for maybe a very short time (days?) to get what needs to be done, done. We mostly boondock and no longer have a home to go home to except for two of our kids driveways (OH yeah, no high ny state property tax!) and GRANDKIDS. For now we will spend summers and a month at christmas in NY, so we will keep NY state domicile. Would love to give that up but that is the place we will be in the longest at any given time. Not florida, 3 months or maybe 4 and AZ maybe a month? Thanks so much for your voices of experience. Hubby and I look forward to our full time journey and hopefully with a newER and slightly bigger used rv. Donna

RE: HOW do I do this?

Because we won't be back in NY until mid december soonest. Need to register it somewhere and not sure if I can do it virtually in ny and with appointments necessary at motor vehicle...that could be difficult or impossible? Maybe this won't work?

RE: HOW do I do this?

I am fully aware that NY state, a high tax state won't give up easily...so for now NY will be our domicile...don't want them coming after me for $$$. Can I register it in South dakota...with me driving said rv to south dakota and husband taking the new one and hang until we sell it? Sell it to a car lot? any other ideas how to move it quick? Before hand put it up for sale in michigan? I hope I can get this to work.

HOW do I do this?

Newly full time rver...but have used our well loved rv for the past 9 years. We have our eyes on an rv in Michigan; we have home base in NY so far. Private purchase. WHERE or HOW do we register it while on the road? Michigan? South Dakota (use Ny plates until we get there from old rv). We won't be back to ny until christmas time. Also, is there a smooth/easy way to sell our old 2005 class c jayco while on to road when it is a private purchase? The price will be cheap because we just need to move it so price is not an issue...do not need to get a lot of money for it. Donna

Laze Days owners questions

We are loooking at lazy daze class c but husband has concerns about interior height. He is 6 feet. I tell him that I am sure a 6 foot person can fit...why would they make it lower? The lower profile concerns him. I want one; I am getting one. Please clarify for me. Donna

Hubby used to use all trails ap...thanks. I am thinking the guy didn't know what he was talking about. donna

Benchmark atlases or ???? Hiking trails on something else?

Someone told us that another brand of atlas also had hiking trails on them? We currently use benchmark atlas to pick out boondock spots (among other things)...but is there an atlas type thing that has hiking trails on them as well?

Cabover sheets? Cotton?

Looking for sheets for my class C cabover. I did search on here but found nothing? Am I naming it wrong? 60" wide x 96....so long queen. We have made them in the past but they must make them right???

RE: Cab/living area COLD weather insulation - comforter?

The windshield cover maybe? but we are often not in one place for weeks....maybe a few days and mozey on. The quilt worked REALLY well. We could have frost on windshield from our breathe and it would be 45 5o 50 in living area while sleeping. Did I say I like it cold to sleep? I just bought from Ollies two quilts (not as beefy as the first one) that we will cut up, fit as a double layer with a board pocket/thin and sew to hold it in place between mattress and short barrier (so you don't fall over the side...a few inches). That board worked well last time except that it was too thin (1/8" plywood?) and broke at some point when he was taking it out. So I think we have our answer. Ollies quilts were $29.99 (and a few 39.99 or 49.99 if they had other stuff like pillows with them) so a bargain. Thought about moving blanket but hubby was worried about those rough blankets spewing rough particles on the bed....

Like the thinsulate idea...thank you.

RE: Cab/living area COLD weather insulation - comforter?

Sewing two quilts together/YES....that is where we are going now...kind of had no choice but we have a beefy sewing machine (that we will be getting rid of as we move to full time) that will easily sew two together.

Cab/living area COLD weather insulation - comforter?

Okay, we have always used a heavy weight quilt to hang on the cab over bed down to the floor of cab for cold weather camping (which we do a lot of). It isolated the living area from the driving area and gave us a smaller area to heat. I got rid of the one we had thinking it would be easy to replace. Well NOPE....they are all thin or want $130 to replace the twin quilt. I really liked the quilt because we could flip it up on top of bed when we didn't want to use so no storage issue...it was always attached with sewn pocket/thin board between mattress. What do you use? I spent about 1.5 hours shopping local and found nothing (I also want a darkER color because we have a dog and don't want to be hitting the laundromat too often). Spent 2+ hours online looking for heavy weight comforter/quilt with no results unless I wanted to spend $120 and still no guarantee it would be heavy just pricey. So tell me what you use? It worked great by the way to make it a smaller area to heat in COLD weather.

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

I bought a small dehumidifier for use in florida/3 months, summers in NY, christmas in ny for a month? and we will wing it boondocking or go to warmer areas.

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

We did just buy a smaller compressor dehumidifier that we will use when we volunteer in florida and when we are NY at kids house in summer...both plugged in. donna

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

We do have a multiple battery solar system. Yeah, need to keep a window cracked as well. We also carry a extra propane tank (extra bbq style...so don't plow into us/boom). donna
