RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

I think the final hitch specs are more determined by the lesser of the frame extension and the hitch rating. I’m guessing the final hitch rating was derated by the frame extension. I would have a hitch fabricator give you an opinion.

RE: Class A crash

There is another thread in another popular RV forum where many chime in. I think the guy failed as a safe driver and hope he quits RVing.

RE: Planning on pulling Cottonwood Pass Colorado

Mid September may get snow there and if so, may close Cottonwood pass. Monarch pass will be open.

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

After downsizing to a 20’ C (about same size as a truck camper) we got a Coleman fold-n-go with a skillet attachment, cooks great for two https://www.amazon.com/Coleman-Fold-Go-Propane-Grill/dp/B001RU04XK/ref=asc_df_B001RU04XK/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=167131408724&hvpos=1o4&hvnetw=g&hvrand=2506713201199210101&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9011683&hvtargid=aud-801381245258:pla-309695404985&psc=1

RE: Merchandise Certificates Expired Upon Arrival

I had the same issue. I got very inconsistent answers from reps. Finally one said I could use the expired certs if I ordered something over the phone so I did. Now, whenever they ask me to reup early I reply “no way”

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

You said that you contacted Adventurer for some help, Was that the company in Yakima Washington? Yes! Was clearing custom pretty much straight forward with no problems? The Country RV driver brought the rv through customs, completed the import paperwork and handed me the paperwork and keys on the US side, it took about 30 minutes I also assume that the chassis was US built and 50 state emissions compliant and if you got the 2017 model was it built on a 2016 chassis as most of them here are on a year earlier. My 19RD is a 2018 model on a 2017 chassis, meets all US emissions and safety standards. Thanks for the replies IN RED this is all very good information,I will keep that tucked away for future use. I would like to contact someone at ALP and ask a few questions about their Class Cs and see if they have any plans to release their products in The US. Any help there would be nice. Thanks again and have fun with those mods. just a follow-up I did contact a person in customer service and they supplied me with the framing diagrams I need to add a ladder and roof rack. ALP has been great to deal with!

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

roam1, Welcome back, I will put you on the list of Former Rental Owners that have contributed to this Thread, you will be #110 https://www.picgifs.com/emoticons/smileys-and-emoticons/thumbs/smileys-thumbs-951446.gif Thanks for coming back and sharing your experiences in buying a Former Rental,that was a very informative write up and I am sure it will help others. Also that you would do it again. The CCC and GVWR sound very good for a small rig and the GCWR does allow for towing. The new tires was a nice surprise!

My 19RD is a 2018 model on a 2017 chassis, meets all US emissions and safety standards. Its great to hear that it has worked flawlessly for 3 months and 3000 miles. I now have almost 10 years and aprox 30000 miles on mine and it also has been flawless with no major problems. Welcome again and I hope that all your camping and mods go as smoothly as possible,please return at anytime and let us know how it is going. Thanks! I contacted ALP again this week and hoping to get the framing data I need to install a ladder and surfboard rack, I am optimistic it will all work out, gentleman I spoke was helpful and looking for what I need.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

I did purchase a Adventurer 19RD from Country RV (now Fraserway RV) in Kelowna B.C. I had been looking for this floor plan for years in the US with no luck so I was willing to take a bit more risk and purchase used in Canada. The sales team was easy to work with and arranged airport pickup and transportation to the border and all import paperwork. We landed in Kelowna at 11 am and we’re across the border by 4pm. The pictures sent and FaceTime used was low resolution so getting a very accurate determination of “wear n tear” was difficult. There were some stains on the upholstery and scratches along the passenger side body which I was not happy about but I guess to be expected after 30,000 miles of rental use. Everything in the coach worked but the black tank flush. I later determined it was installed backwards from the factory and an easily corrected. To my surprise Country RV installed a set of new tires. A car fax was supplied and indicated brake rotors and pads were replaced recently. Things I did not think of until after purchase: Canadian speedometers are in kilometers, sharpen up on your math or get an app! No temporary plate was supplied, made for a nervous 3000 mile drive home. Registration in Florida required a visit to the dmv certification office and lots of confusion around price paid (receipt in CAN$), mileage in kilometers, confusing import paperwork, and the computer would only allow make to be labeled Winnebago. I got it registered but it was a frustrating exercise. Only other comment I’ll make is Adventurer would like me to work with a dealer when asked for info on framing schematic. Dealers are far apart and few between. I want to add a ladder, surf rack, sat antenna and getting info has not been easy, Would I do it again, yes because it was the only option I could find for this floor plan. It has worked flawlessly for 3 months and 3000 miles. This unit has 2000# ccc (includes fuel, water, waste, people, etc) which is quite sufficient. It also has 10050 GVWR and 18500 GCWR which will allow towing a toad.
