RE: Multiple Buyers. Who gets the RV?

Thanks everyone for all the advice. It was very helpful. So the RV is not sold at this point. The buyer from an hour away came to see it and drove it Friday evening. Indicated he had to get with his wife. We've never heard back from him. The potential buyer from 4 hrs away showed with his wife Saturday afternoon. The wife wanted one with a door in the middle. They currently have a 5th wheel. Our rig is an Allegro Bus diesel pusher. Don't recall ever seeing a DP with a door in the middle. Maybe they need to look at a gas powered rig .........Anyway, they decided not to purchase. Both buyers were just blowing smoke. The couple coming from 4 hours away probably looked at three other rigs on the way to your place. The placement of the door was not the true objection, there was something else. The guy without his wife was just a time waster. Unless the seller makes a promise, there is no reason for the buyers to be upset if the rig sold before their arrival. If they are, then the seller has the right to be upset if they don't buy after he held off other potential buyers for those four hours. Private party sellers are not running a business and probably have many other things to do than wait around for no shows and tire kickers. Of course, it's all easy to say without being in the OP's shoes. It would be interesting to know what any one of us would have done if in his situation.

RE: Delays in camper buiddate

True, waiting can be a bummer, but certainly not the end of the world. In 2001, it took Ford 10-months (yes, 10!) to build our F-350. During the wait, we just kept saving money to buy our camper.

RE: Ants and similar pests in any RV.

From what I've heard, a ring of grease on the power cord prevents ants from making their way to the camper too. If it works like it did with my jacks, it's a quick and inexpensive solution.

RE: Check in/out timing...

Often times we arrive early and don't recall ever having a problem. If the site was still occupied, we would just head off on our excursions and check-in later. I guess it's not a big deal since we have a truck camper. Arrival and departure is pretty simple. During my many years in the hotel business, as a long as a room was ready, it didn't matter if a guest arrived before check-in. Our philosophy was they just saved us from having to do the work later. Checkouts are usually tough, but only because I hate heading back to the reality of work. The bigger issue we've encountered, are with those that think they own rights to select areas of the forest and try to bully their way into claiming a site when they're not even there. We've even seen large trees moved across access roads into prime campsites. After a visit with the Ranger, we learned the site was available for use. Unfortunately, we've seen these types of shenanigans on several occasions.

RE: Ants and similar pests in any RV.

After a camping trip in the forest, had the camper parked at home with the jacks down. Don't recall if it was still on the truck, but did have the slide extended. My daughter alerted me to an ant trail on the driveway. I wasn't very interested until we followed the trail to the camper! How dare they!!! The trail went up the curbside jack, onto the sidewall and all the way up to the roof. I climbed the ladder and found they were after tree sap on the slide topper that must have dripped from a tree during our camping trip. How in the heck do those ants discover tree sap way up on the roof? After washing the slide topper and camper, I put a small ring of grease around each jack, about an inch up from the ground, and that stopped the ants in their tracks. As I had read somewhere, the ants will not cross over grease - Vaseline works too. Yes, Terro is also awesome. Just be patient and let it do it's thing over a couple day span. Now, if I could just get this year's cricket invasion under control!

RE: Bathroom access on the road

In a truck camper, the pros of a slide far outweigh the cons (IMHO). Although we can easily access our camper without deploying the slide, most of the time I still extend it about a foot for ease of use. Since the remote is wireless, you can use it from anywhere inside, or outside, the camper. Operating the slide for these quick stops is so simple, I would consider it a non-issue. My opinion is based on owning our current camper close to nine years. Previous model was a non-slide. SUGGESTION: Carry a spare battery or two. Our remote uses a 9-volt, just like the smoke detector. Good luck with your upcoming purchase.
