Arizona boondocking in the desert
 
Arizona boondocking in the deserted desert is the way to go. There is plenty of places to go and have a relaxing vacation right on BLM land that doesn't cost anything...or like $180 a season.

 It is so cheap to live in AZ my fellow campers speak in soft voices so the hordes don't hear us..



I live full time with my wife in a Casita 17' fiberglass travel trailer with the high axel and big wheels and taller tires to get off the road and into the pretty canyons.

A word of warning, once you experience the freedom and cost effectiveness of boondocking, it just may turn you into a desert rat too and your friends and family will think you have been out in the sun too long.

So sell the house that is a yoke around your neck, get a self contained travel trailer and start living once again. There is no STRESS in the desert, just make sure you are camping above Hwy 8 and not close to the Mexican border.

Re: Fun Finder X travel trailer Josephd Maurizzibought new 2014 fun finder 25 foot in June. Excellent design, they put a lot of thought into this trailer. Looked at Winnabago but opted for the fun finder, they had the slam latch doors, the fantastic fans, higher head room, they did not cut corners too much. They did have a cheap mattress. It was like sleeping on a board, Replaced it w/foam mattress $700. They should look at the article in Bloomberg Business Week Dec 14. Title the largest tool in the toolbox. It is about Dodge Ram how you can custom order a Truck. The Rv indutry should take notie. I would love to be able to custom order. I want air ride suspension, cant find it, We had to replace the mattress, I want 4 season capability. cant find it. ect. The only bad thing is the underside has a foam board finish. The wind caught it and pulled it down and tore it. I pushed it back up their and seemed to be ok. I would put a couple of cross members in across the width of the trailer wood slats to hold it up in their. We have pulled it about 5000 miles so far. Built in generator would be nice. We are boondockers. So we pull this trailer over some rough road. We are limited on length too where we camp. Mountains, Desart ect. all in all I love the design of this trailer.

Re: Fulltimingmase1950I am a young looking man, age 64, and full timing for the past 4 years. I have a 40', 3 slide toyhauler that carries my Gold Wing 3-wheel trike. I work on the road and sell a health related product at fairs, flea markets, seasonal markets and special events. I separated from my wife in July. I am finding it difficult on the road and in the booth without help, an extra pair of eyes and hands. I am looking for a best friend, traveling companion helper and lover. I prefer a short and thin pretty women in great health, non-smoker, social drinker, no drugs who is not shy and will not be uncomfortable pitching passers-by to come into the booth for a free 2-min. demo. I play more than I work, but I am not a sugar daddy. I am looking for a financially secure lady with no pets without strong ties to family or places. I play golf, ski and do all the stuff that busy, active RVers do when I am not selling. I travel all western states as far east as Montana to eastern Arizona. I spend alot of time in SW Arizona in the winters and in Pollock Pines, in N.CA. Driving skills are not required, but a fun-loving, adventurous and uninhibited personality are required. I am libertarian, so liberals should not contact me. I am too old to argue with those who see the world through a straw. I am "mase1950" on POF where I have posted a photos. PLEASE do not respond without at least 1 face and 1 full body photo. My email is wearesavingsoles@aol.com.

Re: RV quality concernsoberentI will never buy another Good Sam product... Left me and my wife stranded on I-25 for hours. Never found a tow truck to get me to the service facility they recommended. I found a truck to get us there 7 hours later. Sent forms for rembursment and they refused to settle. Good Sam is as bad as some others.

Re: 2014 Winnebago Trend 23B Class C Motorhome ReviewHappy HighwayThe 2014 Winnebago Trend 23B is a nice vehicle for me, as a Senior Citizen. I did have the Dealership install "running boards" to make it easier to enter and exit the cab area. For one or two persons, in retirement, the space works for me. It might be a bit cozy with children on long trips. A very good mileage vehicle for those of us on Social Security, just wanting to travel each day.

Re: Lance truck camperSteveMight want to check out Northern Lites, they are built interior wise similar to European style. A big plus in my mind is the total sealed one piece fiberglass exterior.
Re: Cruiser RV ViewFinder travel trailerJimI purchased a 2013 Fun Finder 244 last year. Before the year was up, the front cap started fading. The dealer, with Cruiser's blessing repainted a small portion of it. Within 90 days it started fading again and the original bottom portion started really fading. Looks like its 20 years old. Cruiser refuses to do anything about it. The dealer stepped in and will repaint it on their own. The manufacturer is horrible. Do not buy a Cruiser RV product!!!

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!9/2/2014 8:56:00 AM

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. 7/18/2014 12:23:00 PM
