RE: 4 season camping

Definitely check out Arctic Fox by Northwood Mfg., in La Grande, Or. They have been making 4 season RV's for years.

RE: Newbie here. Maybe wrong forum but here goes.

We recently bought a used (2017)smaller Class C-24ft. It's a Forest River Forester LE- 2251SLE. Particularly wanted a 450 Chevy chassis with gas engine-has a 6.0 gas engine. About a month after purchase my wife and I (plus dog) took it on a 1600 mile trip-1 way. Very easy to drive-easy to set up- easy to park. It's easier to take on short trips with enough room for longer trips. Also, being smaller I can keep it in my driveway, plugged in and always ready to go.

RE: Switching to Class C

We went from an F250 CC Diesel lg. bed pulling a 32ft Arctic Fox 5'vr to a 24 ft. Forest River Forester LE Class C, 450 Chevy chassis, 6.0 gas V8 engine. Bought from a Dlr.-was 1 year old and had 7000 miles on it. So much easier to set up, to drive, to park-don't need a toad cause we cam pretty much take it anywhere we could our F250. If we do need additional transportation we use Uber or rent a car. Biggest draw back is lack of storage. Biggest plus is now my D.W can and will drive it and being able to park it just about anywhere.

RE: tires/snow rating / not worry? / chains are solution?

My understanding is if you have a 4x4 with Snow or M/S tires you still are required to carry chains by H.P. if there are snow or icy road conditions. On Highway 18 going to Big Bear or Lake Arrowhead in snow or icy conditions H.P. sets up road blocks to individually check vehicles-ones without the proper tires and chains are not allowed to continue up the MTN.

RE: What do you leave behind when gone for the day?

To put a different twist to this-I arrived at an RV campground in B.C.-went into the office to check in and make final payment for site-had all ready put a credit card deposit down-and sign paperwork. Went to reserved site and there was another RV in it-totally hooked up. Went back to office to find out what was going on-they had a 1:00 PM vacate site policy. The previous renter's RV was still there but the owners were not. It was hot-mid afternoon-and we were tired. Office said the site should be vacant-there were no other sites available. They tried to reach RV owners-no luck. Thankfully, the owners came back about 6:30 P.M.-gave the office some excuse for still being there-unhooked and left. It was a tough afternoon and evening. Office was apologetic. We moved into site and that was that.

RE: Decisions

We have done exactly what you are thinking of doing. Sold the Arctic Fox 5'vr and bought a small Class C-used. It's a 2017 Forest River Forester LE with a Chevy 450 chassis and gas engine. Wanted a Chevy cause had heard/read a lot of complaints of heat coming through floorboards from engine/exhaust/etc. into front passenger seating area from Ford. Also, wanted slightly used Class C hoping the majority of issues/problems had been ironed by previous owner and would still be under warranties if something did pop up. It is about 24ft.- easy to drive and can take it anywhere. If the occasion did a pop up to not take the R.V. we used Uber and Enterprise-lot easier than a toad.

RE: Traveling without a car

We traded our 5'vr and bought a small Class C(24 ft.) which can go about anywhere. But, if we don't want to leave our site and need or want to explore, travel, sight see, etc.-we use Uber, Enterprise, shuttles, etc. Works for us and a lot cheaper than owning a vehicle in Calif.

RE: Recommendations for 30 -32 ft 5th wheel

Arctic Fox made by Northwood, Mfg. in La Grande, Oregon. Have owned 2 A.F. 5th wheels-loved them both. Last one we went from So. Calif. to the Yukon Terr-no problems. Ordered it from the Factory thru a local Dlr.

RE: Insurance recommendations for Class C

Check out Foremost Ins. I have a house in a "high fire danger area" and a pontoon boat, with them.

RE: Hose question........

For fresh water from site spigot to camper we carry a 10ft. and 20ft. Use the 10ft. most of the time. For sewer hoses we carry a 10ft. and a 20ft. with a coupler to combine the 2 together if need be. Again, we use the 10 ft. mostly. Also, keep in mind that these hoses particularly sewer hoses can take up a lot of storage space.

RE: MCCS Camp Pendleton

Be sure to fill your fuel tank before entering Calif. Currently, at local Costco regular gas is $3.45 and local Arco diesel is $4.09.:(

RE: How do you manage without a toad?

We now have a small Class C and no toad. Used Uber to get to specific places(grocery, hardware, historical sites, etc.) sites--$5 to $10 per ride. If we want to explore and stay a while we get an Enterprise Rent A Car. Lot cheaper than owning, maintaining, insuring, licensing, etc.

RE: ReserveCalifornia

We stopped using it as well-not worth the aggravation.

RE: I am TRYING to buy and RV from you all. Not easy!

I would call the Sales Mgr.-tell him/her your situation-explain you want to buy the Airstream but don't want to put up with B.S. with salespeople. You will consider buying from him (S.M.) or who he designates and you expect because of the B.S. you have had to endure you will get a great deal or will go to their competitor. If they ask what you consider a great deal-suggest 30% off sticker price-see if that gets their attention. And, do not be afraid to get up and walk out if you don't like the deal.

RE: Newby questions

We have had 2 5th wheels and now a 24 ft. Class C. With the 5'vrs we had a 20+ft. truck and a 30ft & 32ft. 5th wheels. Great to have the truck as a driver when we dropped off the 5'vr at a campground. But with the 24 ft. Class C we really don't need a separate driver vehicle-can pretty much take it anywhere. If we do need to go without the Class C we have used Uber or Enterprise Rent A Car. Also, we pay less Ins., less fuel, less maintenance, etc., less purchase price. My D.W. is comfortable driving the Class C-definitely wasn't driving the truck pulling the 5'vr. As others have mentioned-setting up a Class C at a campground-about 15 minutes-setting up the 5'vr including unhitching about 30-45 minutes. Also, we bought a 1 year old Class C so most of the wrinkles had been ironed out by previous owner-but was still under Factory Warranty on the Chevy truck and camper.

RE: What brands of Travel Trailers are NEW & Quality

Northwood Mfg. in La Grande, Or. makes Arctic Fox, Nash, Etc. We have owned 2 A.F. fifth wheels and loved them. They are heavier and a bit on the pricy side but well built for either going down the paved highway or off road boondocking.

RE: From Florida to Cali June 1st!

Should try Quartzsite, Az. for boondocking. Loved Shady Acres Campground-Mobile, Ala.-Cajun Palms, Henderson, La.(had seafood restaurant delivery to campground), Mustang Hollow Campground, Mathis, Tx.(we had a site overlooking Lake Corpus Christi) and they make home made pizza in their office. Pontchartrain Landing Campground, New Orleans, La. These campgrounds we liked so much we stayed a couple nights extra. Forgot to mention Williams, Az. off Rt. 66/40-old time mining town which also has a train-Grand Canyon Railway-does a round trip to the Grand Canyon in older style train. There are 3 campgrounds in area.
