RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

^^. GDS hit the nail on the head. It is a prototype of a single model. Ran across the story on an RV trade publication website. The Tampa show was its first appearance. FWIW, RV One and LazyDays in Florida have apparently signed on to the Alliance dealer network.

RE: My Picks College Football

A final thought. LSU had the most productive offense in FBS, averaging 44 points per game. Clemson had the stingiest defense, allowing an average of only 234 yards of offense per game. Too much Joe Buureaux?

RE: Lemon camper

Did you post your experience on RV Service Reviews? Maybe not the best of ideas if the PM proceeds as suggested by the attorney's post, which I thought was spot on.

RE: My Picks College Football

Certainly safe to say the 2 best teams in the country played for the title last night. Burrow and the offense did what they do so well, but the same LSU defense that handled Alabama and humiliated Georgia in the SEC title game showed up to play from the second quarter on, effectively neutralizing Trevor Laurence and Etienne Jr.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Tesla must be putting a tight lid on Panasonic to keep their battery technology exclusive and proprietary to Tesla. Toyota and Panasonic have a joint EV battery venture, and have read Toyota is heavily investing R&D into solid state battery development.

RE: My Picks College Football

The Gophers were the pride of the Big Ten yesterday. Got a feeling Coach Fleck is building something special up there. Defeating Auburn sure won't hurt his recruiting efforts.

RE: Advice on selling my 5th wheel

Sold our travel trailer via consignment this year. My experience: Tried the word of mouth private sale approach first. Two buyers wanted us to give it away, the third, when given the trailer specifications, determined his TV wouldn't be able to tow it. Called the dealer we bought it from 6 years ago. Was told on the phone they currently weren't accepting units for consignment sale. Went to the dealer in person and spoke to the sales manager, we came to an agreement and 'net to us' price. BTW, the dealer apparently bases their offer on current wholesale price. The sales manager told me we would be charged a $500 detailing fee, plus any needed repairs their inspection may find (there were none). The manager stated the unit would be marketed on RV Trader and their own website. Brought the trailer to the dealer that weekend. It never even made it to marketing stage, it sold in less than a week, we received a check for the net proceeds two weeks later (they are a multi-state/store operation). I would say if the trailer is free and clear, that works to your advantage. First question I was asked was did we owe on it. I did not sign any title transfer documents until the trailer was a confirmed sale (Florida has electronic titles now anyway). If possible, try the dealer you purchased the trailer from first. I found it interesting I was told no on the phone, but when I went to the dealer and showed them the original sales documents, no became yes. Might we have made more via private sale? Possibly. But I saw a number of trailers for sale (our exact year and model) that had been languishing on RV Trader for months. We hadn't used the trailer in 3 years, it was costing us over $300/mo in storage and insurance; we wanted it gone and were free of the aggravation of attempting a private sale and the potential scamming that goes with such a sale. So, our experience was positive. IT got even better when we sold our no longer needed 13 year old TV to Carmax for $14K the following week. I had individuals approach me over the last two years offering to buy the truck for substantially less than Carmax offered; so that worked out well too. Good luck.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Love the author's rationalization why dis-incentivize EV ownership? Unless your EV's fly like the Jetson's 'cars', why shouldn't you be paying your share to build/maintain the roads you travel? And the claim the fees are 'higher' than gas tax paid by ICE vehicles, that's a sweeping and unsubstantiated claim. The author should know that's a moving target and there's no one size fits all fuel consumption figure to pin on everyone. Your mileage truly does vary.........hence fuel consumption/purchase does as well.

RE: My Picks College Football

Lot of game left, but it's becoming apparent Clemson hasn't played a team of Ohio State's caliber this year.

RE: My Picks College Football

It ain't pretty for a fact. Went out to pick up dinner checked the score at restaurant was 35-7 with 5 minutes in the half. Got back home 49-14. Geaux Tigers indeed!!!! And what's left to be said about Joe Burreaux!

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

'Use' taxes(based on mileage driven) are being studied in some states as a means of insuring all who use the roads pay for them. Others are considering imposing higher registration fees on BEV's. Who knows the outcome, only certainty is the gubbimint will get their 'tribute'.

RE: Nascar Follies

Simpson and NASCAR reached a confidential out of court settlement in 2003.

RE: Nascar Follies

Simpson's harness was blamed because of fraying/tearing of the left side webbing found when Earnhardt was extricated from the car. After Simpson was savaged publicly, Earnhardt's habit of loosening the harness became public knowledge. What he did refuse to use/wear was the HANS device as you pointed out and a full face helmet.

RE: Nascar Follies

Bill Simpson Dies At 79 Never knew he sued NASCAR for defamation in the wake of Earnhardt Sr's death. But do remember how NASCAR trashed him over it. RIP.
