RE: Winnebago quality

You should be fine with a 2018 model. Winnebago's fit and finish has slipped in the last 2 or 3 years. I'll chalk it up to trying to get the units out the door in a hurry to meet demand.

RE: T mobile Internet

After being with Verizon for over 20 years, I switched to T-Mobile early this year and I have been extremely satisfied with the service and coverage. I have traveled through several states in the West, Midwest and the South and the coverage has been very good. Of course, like any other carrier, coverage may not be as good in the areas where you live and spend most of your time so it is important to check the coverage.

RE: Newly Retired

One thing you will notice going into CA on I-10, The eastern lanes are clogged with people leaving and the western lanes are nearly empty. I sneaked in at a length of 70ft+ to Pamona and sneaked back out at 55mph. That place is hard to defend with so many people leaving. There are plenty of condos for short term rent in the South East in the winter especially in the beach areas. Have a good time. More gibberish from people who know nothing about California or its traffic patterns.

RE: Newly Retired

"Besides be extremely expensive CA is choked with rules, laws and regs. I'm not sure if most businesses are open. We avoid the place if possible." More stereotyping from people who know nothing about California. Califronia's snowbird areas are more confined to the desert areas east of Southern California. The Coachella Valley where Palm Springs is located has many condos and second homes that are used primarily during the winter months when the weather is perfect. If you like golfing, there are many golf courses in the area. From the Palm Springs area you can explore all the diverse areas Southern California has to offer.

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

So....back on topic. I think OP has a point and needs to check with DMV. My Auto purchase price 21K. Registration $218. We do pay a ton more than many states. Real life case. Porsche SUV CA registration $980. **** right, effing luxury car. Same car moves to Idaho, $90. Did you pay about $98K for the Porsche? Based on your $21K purchase and only paying $218 you're paying about 1% of purchase price or value. Come to AZ and see your $980 registration turn into $1,665. Or, you could move to Idaho and only pay $90.

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

The basic reason most people like to bash California is simply JEALOUSY! Yep. You'd think Teleman would have moved to another state by now if he had it so bad.

RE: Outrageous CA registration fee!

Teleman, before throwing a hissy fit about your CA registration fee, you should have checked to see what your neighbors are paying. If not mistaken, NV is about 2% of purchase price/value and AZ is about 1.85%. When I moved to AZ four years ago my registration fees almost doubled. I know it's fashionable for some of you in this forum to bash CA every time you have a chance, but unless registration fees have gone up considerably in the last four years, CA's fees are lower than in some other states.

RE: “Pathetic quality”: RV dealers are fed up...

As long as the RV manufacturers continue to pay "piece work" the employees will continue to produce shoddy products. And, no, the prices of RVs will not double if employees get paid in a different manner, as someone suggested. Labor is only one component of the price of an RV. As the 4-year-old Reuters article indicated, some RV workers were making $60K a year back then, which wasn't bad for Indiana.

RE: Where to find toads for sale

What are you looking for in a towed? Is there a web site telling us what rv you have and what you want a towed to do. Thats enought of the snarky answers, there isn't a specific site that lists towables for sale. If you can do the work to convert a vehicle to a towed, there is a yearly listing of vehicles that can be towed four down. I believe it is by MoHo magazine, it is part of Affinity. If you can't do the converrsion, there are folks that can. Most mobile rv techs for instance. One thing about milage is that most new towables have electronic speedos. They do not show the miles towed. What a used towed's speedo shows may be much less than the total miles the vehicle may have endured. New vehicles that I would use are way over the weight I would like to tow. My current towed is a 2009 GMC Canyon and is over 4000 lbs. The only good thing about it is that it is towable four down without any mods to the vehicle. I gave my Daughter my 2006 Suzuki Grand Vitara because I wanted a 4x4 truck that was towable. I am going to buy it back and give her the Canyon for a down payment on a new car. I'll buy a 2wd F150 beater truck DD and keep the Suzi for towing. Oh, by the way, it is my wife who wants the towed to be a 4x4 and I want a truck for z DD. I towed for several years in the past. I'm open to different vehicles, provided they're newer and small to medium size, and within reasonable distance from where I live.

RE: Where to find toads for sale

Thanks for the tips. The Escapees' website has nothing current and FMCA only has one high-mileage listing with no date.

Where to find toads for sale

Is there a website where people list their toads for sale? We are looking for a toad and prefer finding one that's already setup for towing.

RE: 12 volt refrigerator

W had a Norcold 12 volt compressor fridge in a Winnebago Navion we recently sold, and we loved it. I was a bit apprehensive when we bought the coach since I knew nothing about 12 volt compressor fridges. The fridge gets cold faster than absorption fridges, it doesn't have to be leveled and outside temps don't affect the fridge temp. The motorhome came from factory with 200 watts of solar to help the batteries when parked. We boondocked often and never had a problem with the batteries.

RE: Jeep Grand Cherokee, experiences, thoughts, opinions?

We own a 2014 JGC Limited 4X4 with the V6, and have had no problems in the last 7 years. Just recently, the check engine light came on and the dealer determined it has something to do with the gasoline vapor from the gas tank. We were told it will be an inexpensive fix.
