Socorro, NM campground

We had planned on staying at Holloman AFB for the trip out to the Trinity Site but have decided to stay in Socorro at the City of Socorro Rodeo and Sports Complex instead. Has anyone stayed there and what is your opinion? Thanks!!

RE: The Trinity Site

A little side note for those who have not been to White Sands...several years ago we were walking on the dunes not realizing one of the meds I was taking had a warning about being light sensitive. The white sand is so bright that by the time I got back to the Jeep it looked as if I had the world's worst case of measles. The red spots lasted for several days so read your medication warnings before visiting White Sands.

RE: Escape window falls out

Reading your experience causes more concern for if we might have done that kind of damage. Glad our's is a diesel class A and not the fiver you passed!!!

Wow Williebago! That does sound interesting but is it possiple to do? They are in opposite directions and miles apart. We figured a day for each.

RE: The Trinity Site

Thanks for more suggestions wallynm. We've been traveling for 27 years and it is hard to find new places to explore. Being retired military we've done all of your above suggestions. Shoot out anymore you might have - might be one we've not done. Thanks again!!!

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

ScottG, that was two very plush Captains chairs, ($950 each) but oh so comfortable for hours of travel, bench seat dinette that makes into a bed and theater sofa. Sofa has a wide fold down arm that makes it three seater. So far we are very happy with all of it. I forget what the labor was but with the wiring etc. etc. we didn't think it was too bad. Bradd and Hall were nice to work with.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

ScottG, our first signs were the arm rests on the Captains chairs had fine hairline cracks. We covered them with long tube socks thinking that would be the end of it. WRONG ANSWER! Next the sofa showed hailine cracks that became larger cracks that started to peel. At that stage we took a detour to Elkhart and ordered all new furniture from Bradd and Hall. The theater sofa was on back order as they had sold so many of them to people like us. We lolly gagged around the country until ours came in. Within a day the old furniture was removed and replaced with our beautiful new furniture. End of story. Very happy with the new and ticked off at Fleetwood who basically told us we had what we had...$8500 later!

The Trinity Site

Has anyone been to the Trinity Site? If so, what did you think?

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

You are right, Bruce. That is what Bradd and Hall told us. We've just had some bad "happenings" with our Fleetwood. Added all together makes us think 'no more Fleetwood'...This is our last motorhome anyhow, due to our ages, not the motorhomes'...but if we were to get another one it would NOT be a Fleetwood.

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

Had they been honest and told us it was NOT leather, we would have opted for cloth. But no, you think leather will last and material (cloth) will wear, had it been a $99,000 diesel, we wouldn't have been surprised, disappointed or felt 'used". But Fleetwood got one over on us. Key word here being "ONE"...never a Fleetwood again!! Beware my friends...beware!

RE: "Leather" coming apart and peeling

Wow you want to loan me a million dollars? We have a beer pocket book. Even at that, when you spend that kind of money on a diesel pusher you don't expect it to fall a part in less than 5 years. It looked like leather, it felt like leather...not being a leather expert we didn't know what we were getting. I just want others to be aware and don't make a mistake like we did.

"Leather" coming apart and peeling

I started reading ChewyRV's post about upgrading to a newer model RV and decided I needed to post this as a warning. Our 2015 Fleetwood Expedition's furniture started to crack and peel. Now mind you, this furniture has been well taken care of. Cleaned with recommended cleaner and protected with recommended leather protector. No animals and no children. Bradd and Hall in Elkhart told us the "stuff" (play on words)the RV manufactures put in these units is not meant to last. They also told us they are making good money on replacing this so called leather a final word on the subject, if you plan on "Upgrading" be careful of the furniture in your new unit. You could ended up down-grading. And as a foot note, Fleetwood reminded us of the "ONE YEAR warranty" And ChewyRV, rethink the Fleetwood part.

RE: Escape window falls out

bdpreece, we've wondered/worried if our window ever damaged anybody. We have no idea where it happened, we only know it was on I-10. No one ever signaled us or anything. We were amazed it did no damage to the side of our motorhome or Jeep as it flew by.

RE: Escape window falls out

Lucy6194. What brand of motorhome? Good idea on the plexiglass especialy heading to Alaska. We covered ours with card board and a large garbage bag. Real classy.

Escape window falls out

We have a 2015 Fleetwood Expedition that has an escape window behind the sofa in the living room. While traveling home back to Florida this past October I walked back to the 1/2 bath and felt a tremendous rush of cold air. When investigating at the nearest rest area we discovered the window had fallen out. Yep! Gone! Somewhere between Louisiana and Florida the escape window escaped. It took over 2 months to get the new window and a cost of $800 plus labor to install. Had to buy the whole double window. It was closed and locked as all our windows were when we left the Navy Base in Belle Chase, Louisiana. Check your windows before getting on the road - you could feel a cold unknown draft while on the road.

Looking for info on TSD Logistics

Just heard about this TSD Logistics program and wondering if anyone has had experience with it. Wondering too if it is one of these "Too good to be true" things one hears of.
