(See also general comments further down this page)
Re: RV industry bubble - just like housingPatty O CamperI enjoyed reading the interview with Randy Potts, the new CEO of "Winnebago". His comments confirmed the feeling I had about the economy and it's impact on the RV Industry. I also noted he ignored the interviewer' s question about "how president Obama could help the RV industry" the question was stupid. The best thing government can due for the economy in general is to back-off on all the regulations that have strangled the American spirit of self-reliance. The crash in the economy was the result of government involvement in the housing industry. Insisting that banks loaned money for real estate to people who could never make the payments....all in the name of "equality". Banks started to fail, the housing market went into a depression and all because too many unqualified mortgage holders failed to make their payments. During this crisis the government continues to print money every week reducing the value of our currency on the world market and fueling inflation in this country. It is good to see Winnebago isn't in line for any government handouts like too many members of our dependent society seem to be. Reduce regulations, build the Keystone pipeline and the price of fuel for our RV's will go down....and get the ethanol out of our gasoline....it is reducing gas mileage and destroying our motor vehicles!
Re: Roadtrek Is Number 1 In Class B Sales YTD For February 2014Johni would like to find out how I can get a Manuel showing how to operate everything.Also would like know how i can buy the seat that go behind the passenger seat.It was taken out.
Re: RVing with Your PetCoryWe travel with 2 senior Goldens and a young one... It is very important that our Fur Babies stay cool, I would have not thought to leave a key with the camp host or a note... We usually don't lock the door when we leave them... And a ramp is very important to have to help get them in and out so the steep stairs don't hurt their hips.
Re: What's The Reason Behind The Shortage of RV DriversTheresaDo you have a phone number. I can't get no info on the net. Thank you much.Drive RV'S Theresa.
Re: Getting Your Kicks at Age 66, the RV LifeCHUCK AND LIZWe were full time RV'er for 7 years while I was still working. My job included travel so the RV was perfect. Retired now (67) but have COPD and require oxygen. Bought a house as a home base. Have the house concentrator and bottle charger in washer/dryer compartment. Have a rented backup portable concentrator in living room. We still love our RVing and getting older may mean moving a little slower, but no reason to stop. Just make sure you got your meds and a way to get refills.
Re: Getting Your Kicks at Age 66, the RV LifeJodiAfter reading this article-I am reminded of how wonderful the RVing life is. My husband and I were RVers for 7 years - We never regretted a minute that we spent travelling around and seeing the country. I agree with the writer that when you pull into an RV park - you can make instant friends if you want to. Most people are basically friendly and helpful.
Re: RVing with Your PetKayI have 2 older dogs who are big (84 pounds each) and I'm new to RV'ing with them. Can someone tell me the best way to travel with older dogs? What to look for in a campsite and what ramps are best? They both have hip dysplasia. Thanks!
Re: Gasoline prices set to rise next month but fall overall for the yearcoachman99So the less gas I use the more I pay. What a Rip. We are supposed to get rid of Ethanol, get better mileage, but now raise the price.
Re: Retail sales heat up with new Super C RVs from Thor Motor CoachSuper C Motorhome FanThese new Thor Motor Coach Class Super C Motorhomes looks fantastic, the PowerStroke diesel engine is the best choice for mpg, power, and quality. I'm happy to see Thor start building Super C RVs, I'm sure the will also dominate the other Super C Motorhome manufacturers like they have in the other classes.

THAT UNIT CLAIMED 16 MPG W/52GAL TANK 832 MILE RANGE. IF FORD GETS 16 MPG WITH 68 GALLONS SHOULD GET 1088 MILES OF RANGE. WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHO ELSE COMES OUT WITH A SUPER C TYPE RV.
Re: Solar Keeps Rising: Stoltzfus RV and Marine Goes Green With SolarShannon ScottsFor the past 3 weeks I have been asking Dometic and Atwood for the efficiency rating (Coeffiency of Performance (COP)) for their heat pump/AC units for my 2002 Carriage. No one, Dometic nor Atwood, will give this data to me. Stating it's unavailable. This date is basic data. All one needs is the input in Watts and the output in BTU per hour when the heat pump is operating without a electric heat strip. It seems that they are trying to hide something. The new heat pump technology is the world most efficient way to heat anything (space or water) period if you have a source of electric (generator or say a fuel cell). If everyone who wanted to buy a heat pump demanded this information then they would have to provide it. The standard GE heat pump at about 9,000 BTUH((Window and PTAC) has a COP of 2.9 to 3.7 resectively at 47 degrees F. That means that for every 1000 watts of electricity used you could get more than 10,000 BTUH of heat. To compare to a stardard electric heater the same 1000 Watts would only produce 3413 BTUH of heat. The COP drops when the outside temperature drops because the heat pump compressor has to work harder to harvest the available ambient heat in the outside air. Are the RV AC/Heat Pump manufacturers trying to hide the fact that they are selling people very low COP heat pumps compared to standard house units out there where as they might have to increase the COP to really compete? PS If anyone out there has access to this data please post it here. Thanks.
Re: Rand McNally and RVDA Dealer and Service Location AppfmprdwgJust purchased 2012 Jayco Seneca 38 foot. Cummins diesel and Freightliner chassis. Lots of power, mileage is a true 10mpg. I have over 4000 miles of travel to prove it. King bed, fireplace, 2 slides, 4 TV's. Only thing I do not like is 2 fuel tanks but not same sized and must use DEF (Diesel Emmision fluid). A real pain on the trunk !!!!
Re: EcoMotors Secures Investment for OPOC EnginelesterndOpposed piston diesels are not new technology. They were used in the 60's in Europe in Dodge trucks. They have a compact height advantage and the engine was under the flatbed.
Re: Minnesota residents evading sales tax by registering RVs in MontanaFritzUsed to live in the Peoples Republic of Minnesota. Vote with your feet. Democrat Farm-Labor says it all. Don't set up a shell corporation; move there, or to any state with a favorable tax structure. I moved when I saw that the state was sucking me dry.
Re: Futuristic Motorhome eleMMentGaryugly.
Re: Minnesota residents evading sales tax by registering RVs in MontanaTwoA corporation is a legal entity. A corporation can own property. If you incorporate in Montana and your corporation is the registured owner of your vehicle and it is registured to the corporation at the Montana corporate hq address you have commited no crime or fraud. You have the legal right to do the above.
Re: The Outdoor Foundation Special Report on CampingGailI don't see the relativity in a report based on a survey done four years ago. A lot has changed in four year - gas/diesel prices, cost of camping. If the Outdoor Foundation is collecting information yearly - why does it take four years to publish this report?

Re: Futuristic Motorhome eleMMentsunshine Does this unit have a kitchen? I don't see any in the layout. Not sure why anyone would want to travel without a kitchen especially a fridge.
Re: Futuristic Motorhome eleMMentRichard H ZentgrafAs long as thease dreamers think that the majority of RV'rs want to take their Manhatten or Hollywood penthouse along, they are mistaken. Get back to basics, a comfortable ride, sleep off the ground, a one burner stove is Ok and scrap the carpets. And, oh yes. Leave the damn TV at home.
Re: Futuristic Motorhome eleMMentTaraThis should inspire new thinking and uses for an RV.

Re: Fuel-cell cars go commercial 2015 - implications for RVsARoachHoly cow this sounds promising, my wife absolutely hates living without AC in the summer, she also hates me and the kids gone every weekend. I hate burning diesel unnecessarily. This might make everyone happy in my family.

Re: Northstar Freedom truck camperdare2goI think Northstar build some of the best truck campers on the American market, and certainly the best solutions for smaller trucks. This stems from their export experience to Australia, where Toyota Hilux and Isuzu DMax (both much lighter trucks) dominate the pick-up truck market. And they started early to integrate quality European fittings.

Re: Cruiser RV ViewFinder travel trailerLuvtocampWe purchased a 14 viewfinder signature. Never again will I be buying another Cruiser. Every time we went on a weekend trip something went wrong. Cable for tv's were hooked up wrong ( 3 trips to Elkart) . Wiring under fridge is a cluster ( bad word). Went to yellowstone for a week (over 2,000 miles away from home) to find out slide to kitchen didn't work. Camped with slide in. Couldn't get silverware, etc out of drawers. Spent 500.00 for someone to look at it in Wyoming. Then spent a night in a hotel. Well there is $800.00 out of our vacation money! Now the company who has our crap of a camper is waiting on good ole lippert to replace everything on our slide out. My camper has been in Elkart , Ind for a a month and a half. I am DONE with Cruiser! Called the manufacturer in Howe , Ind. to complain and service guy ( being nice not saying his name) isn't helping. I know when I called him today he flat out lied to me. Ugh I can't take it mo more. My camper has been worked on longer than we have used it this year.
Re: Coachmen Freelander class C motorhomePeter and ValWe loved the Coachmen Freelander and went for a used one that had a good price. We noticed what appeared to be water in the bathroom skylight but was assured by the salesman at CAMPING WORLD that it was nothing and he even went on the roof to take a picture of the skylight to prove there was no crack. We couldn't make out the picture well and believed him. We bought it "AS IS" which was a big mistake!!! There was actually extensive water damage to the walls and roof as the previous owner must have been camping with the crack for many months. Camping world was asked to make good on concealed damage and they said they would only split the cost. We were told we'd have to pay a couple thousand. Wow... We didn't think Camping World would scam us like the corner used car dealer. We do like the Freightliner engine though and there are other aspects of the camper that we like....

They don't have the strength to keep the trailer off the tires and it is melting the tires to the point of blowing out while going down the highway. No fire yet but lots of smoke and lots of damage. I am getting kind of afraid to use my r.v.
