RE: Advice on new Gas Tow vehicle

The heavier the rig you are going to tow, the more sense it makes to do it with a diesel. Talk with 5er owners.

RE: driving from arizona to wa state

The place yo might need to be armed is a truck stop or Walmart, not a couple of miles off the road.

Expect everything to be closed.

RE: driving from arizona to wa state

People do not seem to understand the amount of public land in CA, NV and OR. There is no need to stop at a closed campground or truck stop. PUll over on public land, get a couple miles off the highway and sleep there.

RE: What manufacturers will this recession bring down?

If people would just stay home, we could get this under control in a few weeks. Since we have no federal leadership and many governors not taking action, there will be a sequential cascade of virus problems and death for several months at least. The economy is caving in on itself. Many companies will never recover. Non-essential parts of it like the RV industry will be hardest hit.

RE: Buyers market?

If you think RVs are cheap now, wait a couple of months.

RE: Fire tools

We respond to a six year old thread because the subject is timeless and still relevant.

RE: Used tow vehicles

I have owned around 30 vehicles in my life so far. Never traded any of them in to a dealer.

RE: Fire tools

YOu don't need fire tools. I carry a shovel and a pot lifter for a Dutch Oven. That's it. Some people bring chainsaws to go camping. Try a small fire and sitting next to it. Get the rocks out of the way. I carry a small axe or hatchet sometimes to split kindling. When people start drinking I hide. it.

RE: Used tow vehicles

The 7.3 was a great motor in its day, but you’re now looking at a nearly 20 year old truck and technology. Compared to today’s trucks the 7.3 is pretty anemic. I’m sure a new Ram 6.4 or Ford 7.3 gas with the 8 and 10 speed trans would leave the ole stock 7.3 in the dust. Talking about prices, there is a dealer in the Sacramento area who has clean low mileage older diesel trucks and I’ve seen 7.3s as high as mid $30k. Every mechanic that has ever looked at my 7.3 liter diesel, has told me the same thing. "Never sell it." It the best vehicle I have ever owned. With a few bolt on parts it is making around 330 hp. Totally adequate for towing. My record mpg is 23.8 mpg. I paid $35k and it is worth aout $18k. I saw one recently listed for $35k which is what it cost new in 2002. Different power strokes for different folks.

The best tow vehicles are trucks. They work fine as daily drivers. I have driven a one ton Ford diesel as a daily driver for 18 years. Best vehicle I have ever had. And the best fried chicken comes from Louisiana, but that has almost as little to do with the OPs query as your post. Unless you didn’t read his which case, still applies. A truck with four doors and a bench seat can seat 6, and pull whatever is behind it. In order seat more than 6, and be able to pull with it, you need an E-250 or 350 instead of an F-250 or 350. Trucks are made to pull with. SUVs mostly aren;t.

RE: The numbers were too good to resist

Now is not the time for any major purchases. Prices are falling like a rock. My 7.3 diesel gets over 20 all the time and as much as 23.8 mpg and it is 20 years old.

RE: Used tow vehicles

I bought my F-350 in 2002 for $35k in with the 7.3 Plenty of them are going for $25k now. Last week a low mileage truck had an asking price of $32.5. Show me a gas truck that holds its value like that.

RE: Used tow vehicles

Is that all? Heh that truck with the 7.3 is in high demand. All used diesels are pricey compared to gassers. For some good reasons.
ppine 04/01/20 09:00am Tow Vehicles

Who goes camping with more than 6 people? If you really do then an E-350 a one ton Ford van might work for you. It is definitely a truck.

RE: The perfect RV campground

I have never been to an RV park I really liked. Last year we got invited to the wine country in CA with a big group. I went with an open mind and paid $75 a night. I could not wait to get out of there. Too much pavement, too much noise, too many people and dogs in close proximity. The best way to improve an RV park is bigger sites with more trees.
