RE: Thinking about buying a class c

When we were looking-had decided to get a Chevy chassis-bigger front foot/leg well, no heat emitting from the engine/trans. to the passenger seating area. Wanted to get slightly used-figured the previous owner had gotten the wrinkles ironed out and much better price. Wanted a gas-V8 engine-stove had to have an oven + the microwave, wanted cross ventilation in upper sleeping area/sliding windows. Ended up with a 2017 450Chevy chassis(bought it in 2018) with 6700 miles on it(still under Factory Warranty)-V8 6.0 gas engine, Forest River Forester 2251SLE-24ft. Perfect for myself, wife and dog. My wife can and will drive it. Small enough so we can take it everywhere-don't need a toad. If needed we use Uber or rent a car.

RE: Class C Pros and Cons

We bought a slightly used Class C, 2 years ago-from the original selling Dlr. 2017 Forester LE in 2018 with 6500 miles on it-Chevy 450 chassis with V8 gas engine. They gave us paperwork showing everything they had repaired/replaced before selling to us. Also, was still under Factory warranties as well as Dlr. warranty. Being newish/used they had a high asking price. Offered them about 30% off asking-we settled at about 25% off asking. 2 years later and about 6000 additional miles-no problems with the Rv. or chassis/motor/etc. Previously, we have owned 2 fifth wheels(Arctic Fox)-the Class C is so much easier to operate, to set up and now my wife will drive.

RE: 30’ 5th wheel

We had a 29 5T Arctic Fox, by Northwood Mfg., in La Grande, Or. they make a 27 5L 5th wheel-it's 29.9 ft. Northwood is well known for making quality campers-they are a true 4 seasons R.V.-Northwood makes their own trailer as well as the camper. We put about 45,000 miles on ours-went from So. Ca. to Yukon Terr. and to Fl. and many places in-between. If I was in the market again-that would be the way I would go.

RE: Orlando to Los Angeles Good Sam Trip Planner

We always take detour around Phoenix. Going east-I 10 to Buckeye, Az.-85 to Gila Bend-I 8 to I 10. Really easy, relaxing drive. Our daughter and family live in Vail, Az. S. of Tucson. If you need cheap place to overnight in that area-Good Sam-Pima County Fairground Rv Park just off I 10 and we always stay overnight in Quartzsite, Az at-Good Sam-Holiday Palms.

Roof Vent Cover

Our Class C-Forest River Forester-shower ceiling vent cover has a jagged 2" hole in it-the one with the electric fan. Has anybody replaced that vent cover-are they all a standard size? Ideas where to get a vent cover at a reasonable price? Thanks

RE: AT&T internet bundled with DirecTV

Mike-I definitely understand what you are saying-we are in So. Calif.-ATT took over our DirectV Act. They eliminated channels we've had for years and wanted to charge me additional $$'s for channels we have always had in our PKG. The Pkg we had with D'TV is no more and Pkg we opted to have with ATT is more $$'s and still doesn't include all our favorite channels-they are more $$'s or more expensive PKG. Am seriously thinking of switching to Dish.

RE: Tow or not to Tow

We have a 24ft. Class C. Usually take trips versus weekend camping. We do not have a toad and have found we really don't need one. Use "Uber" quite a bit and the fun part of them driving is they also act as a pretty good tour guide. If we plan to stay in an area for a while we get a car rental. And being 24ft. we can pretty much take it anywhere we want to go. So, we don't have to pay an additional annual DMV fee, Ins., Maintenance, Tires, Etc., plus cost of vehicle. Works for us. Forgot to mention-if you get to Az. check out Williams, Az.-neat place to visit and they have a older style train that takes you to the Grand Canyon and back-plenty of RV campgrounds in Williams.

RE: Picking up a 24' Class C

We have a 24ft Class C(2017) on a Chevy 450 chassis-V8 gas engine-bought it used from a Dealer w/6500 miles on it. Had 2 fifth wheels before this one. Love the size-we can take it everywhere we want to go-don't need a toad. But, if need be-we can get Uber or rent a car. Like the fact that my wife will drive now. And, so much easier and quicker to set up than the 5,vr. We are members of Good Sam& KOA-get 10%off at Good Sam campgrounds. We average 9-9.6 MPG., with a 55 gal. tank.

RE: TT Insurance

Currently, we have National General, on our Class C. Checked Progressive and they were quite a bit more expensive.

RE: Howdy Everybody

Try to buy slightly used-a year old? All new Rv's have problems, which can be time consuming, sometimes expensive and frustrating. A slightly used RV's should have most of the problems ironed out and hopefully still under warranty if something does pop up.

RE: Travel into Canada

This might answer your questions. I have traveled through B.C. and parts of the Yukon-never found a gun necessary.

RE: Best quality 4 season trailer

Arctic Fox or Nash both made by Northwood Mfg in La Grande, Or. They make their own trailer as well as the R.V. They are a little pricier but they are well made-and are made and designed as a 4 seasons R.V.

RE: Truck stops and RVs

"Pilot" truck stops have dump stations, fuel, stores-some have small eatery-most have take out foods like Subway. Usually see them in western U.S.

RE: I-40 Anything worth seeing

On I 40/Rt 66 is the little historic town of Williams, Az. Among other things there have an old fashion train that takes you to the Grand Canyon and back. There are a few campgrounds in the area. Fun place to park it and just walk around.

RE: Who do you use for Insurance?

We have a Class C and have National General Ins. Haven't had to use them. On our 5th wheel we had Foremost Ins-never used them either

RE: The better 5th wheeler?

One that stands out is Arctic Fox, by Northwood MFG, in Oregon. And it's a 4 season 5'vr, comes with a larger water heater than most 5'vrs They make their own trailer, which comes standard with shock absorbers. We have owned 2 A.F.-bought new. The last one-model 29 5T we probably put 50,000 miles on it-from So. Calif. we took it to the Yukon Terr.-to Florida and many points in between.

RE: 4 season TT

Arctic Fox and Nash, made by Northwood MFG in La Grande, Or. are considered to be 4 seasons campers as well as being well made. We have owned 2 Arctic Fox 5th wheels-the last one we put about 50,000 miles on it with trips from So Ca. to the Yukon Terr. and to Fl. any many points in between. They make their own trailer chassis which comes standard with shock absorbers, etc.

RE: to plug in or not to plug in when mhome is at home

Our 24ft. F.R. Forester Class C is always plugged in to house current while sitting in driveway. We always turn off RV camper electricity, inside camper when plugging or unplugging house current.

RE: Just completed our first trip with our new travel trailer

Over time we learned to use paper plates, paper towels, plastic cups, French Press for coffee and plastic utensils and portable Weber Baby Q barbecue for cooking. And, carry 24 pack of water bottles. Use rest rooms at campgrounds(assuming they're clean). If dry camping we will spend 1 night while traveling to fill up water tank and empty black and gray tanks.
