RE: 2009 Thor Motor Coach Chateau Citation

We have a 24ft Class C-bought it used from a Dlr. Were looking for a Chevy chassis with V8 gas engine Definitely didn't want a diesel. Diesel is very expensive for maintenance, oil changes, etc. If you have any problems-Chevy/Ford are a lot easier to find repair facilities. We can go anywhere in U.S. or Canada and there is always a place to get work done. Also, at 60,000 miles there will be repairs-probably reason owner is getting rid of it.

RE: Is 70 to old to travel with a RV

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

We received 2 of the new RV magazine. Previously, was getting Trailer Life and MotorHome magazines. Definitely letting 1 run out-will wait to see what develops to see if we keep 2nd subscription. Have been getting the 2 Mag's. for years-currently have a Class C-used to have an Arctic Fox 5th wheel. Figured they would put it together-1 person doesn't need 2 RV magazines-but, oh well my dog will now get his own copy.

RE: Best and worst routes across the Mountains ?

If you do take I40 through Az-be sure to stop at Rt# 66 town of Williams, Az. Plenty of RV campgrounds. Take the historic train to the Grand Canyon and back. Definitely a fun trip.

RE: Tire Valve Stem Cracking

Metal valve stems are definitely the way to go with your Good Year tires. "China Bombs" do unbelievable damage when they blow to the wheel well as well as the RV interior around the wheel well area.

RE: Thousand Trails Membership

Our way of thinking is there is so many campgrounds in the U.S. of A and Canada-it just isn't worth the $$'s to restrict yourselves to that style of camping. We do belong to Good Sam, KOA and Passport America. Where ever we go there always seems to be one or the other to stay with. We have camped from So. Ca. to B.C. and Yukon Terr.-to Florida and many points in between.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

Weber Baby Q-have had and used 1 for 10+ years-never had a problem-except people trying to steal it while left outside.

RE: Grand Canyon

Williams, Az. has a scenic (old time)train ride to the Grand Canyon and back-it is beautiful. Williams is on Route 66, also-which is a fun trip in itself. There are quite a few RV campgrounds in or around Williams. Just a thought.

RE: Anybody Remember These Stickers?

Yup, still have 2 of those stickers. I have a 2004 F250 CC and still on rear window.

RE: Wolf Pup

IF you take it back to Camping World for repair-will probably sit there for a month or 2-try to fix yourself.

RE: One night stays and black/grey tanks

We live in So. Calif(Orange County) and have traveled to McAllen, Tx. and back, quite a few times. Last day of travel we would definitely dump black tank and follow with gray tank. Usually in Az.-around Quartzsite, Az.-we would fill the fuel tank-Some Pilot and Loves gas stations have Dumps.

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.
