RE: Casita vs "conventional" small trailers

Do the Casita type trailers have any sort of wall insulation? as I recall, from years ago, they had a carpet like material glued to the walls. bumpy

RE: Casita vs "conventional" small trailers

IIRC, Scamp had a less desirable bathroom than the Casita, but that was years ago. bumpy

RE: St. Louis Recommendations?

While you are waiting search this Forum in the RV Parks section for `St. Louis' also `Saint Louis'. We always stay at Sundermeier. me too just off of 370 (NOT I370) bumpy

RE: Casita vs "conventional" small trailers

when I was looking at them they had a "neat" 16 IIRC, ft model with small dinette on the side and you could leave the large dinette made up as a bed. you needed to get the roof air, not floor level one to get a full height closet. the bath was better laid out than some others. I looked at the R POD and it had no hang up closet and the triangle tiny sink was not useable, no vanity space, wet bath. bumpy

Because it is at the top of the page, in red block letters. Suggestions to rename or move the link have been dismissed by the admin. I've got to post something in forum posting and support because mine isn't in red block letters. bumpy

RE: Side windows are fogged up

I tired of fixing fogged dual pane windows so one by one as they fail I have a piece of laminated glass installed in the original window frames. It is the same glass used in the windshield. I haven't experienced any significant difference in temperature loss/gain, moisture or sweating is the same, and the laminated glass is a better sound barrier than the dual pane windows were. OH NO, debunks the "HOLY GRAIL" bumpy

RE: Winterizing--water pump kit question

Yes, did the water heater bypass and flushed the pink stuff through the toilet. This was not my first time winterizing the camper. Rather it was the first time I used the pump kit. Previous years I put the antifreeze into the fresh water tank. Not complicated but it sure uses much more antifreeze than the 2 or so gallons I used this time! so you previously got antifreeze thru OK from the FW Tank but couldn't from the bottle/kit? and you did everything else the same? you did put the "T" valve before pump? doesn't compute?????? bumpy Actually it does compute if there is an air leak. These pumps can run for days (yes I did it, oops) with no water but they don't like air leaks. but the air leak would have to be between the pump and bottle thru the T?????????

RE: Inflatable cooler

That video proved what I've felt all along, just extra foam, and a better sealing lid, plus that sucker tax that comes when you buy something because of the name. Marketing at its finest. that was a cheap POC that he compared to. I don't think there would be that poor a job on the $48 special knockoff. they wouldn't sell as many if they didn't have YETI embossed on them. bumpy

RE: diesel class c

Having owned a Sprinter for two years, I can make the folding comments: We did have an LPG generator in ours. A few have diesel, but the bi=lk are propane They drive nice, ride reasonably well, and you can go anywhere in town that a 1 ton pickup can. They are expensive to maintain. For shop related shrives you can expect to pay $250 to $450 for an oil change (depending where and who does it), $1000 minimum for the first Schedule A servic=ve and $1500 or more for the Schedule B service. All parts for the MBS are expensive. MB states not to idle in excess of 5 minutes due to complications with EGR setup MB states not to use any biodiesel above 5% (although yo re now seeing some relief, I believe) If you run greater than 5%, you really have to watch your oil levels. We really dislike the split bed design in our unit (rear bed slide) plus the chores of having make and unmake the bed every time you move. Not a lot of room in the units if you hit bad e=weather and are confined to inside for several days. Also, storage, lack of, is a real issue as there is a limited cargo weight. After two years, we went to a class A, and are very satisfied the upgrades space, and comfort. but you save a lot on fuel, pay 30% more for 15% increase in mileage. bumpy

RE: Inflatable cooler

speaking of coolers, I have been lusting over a small 26 quart yeti and saw knock offs for about $100. yesterday I saw wallyworld having those reduced to $48. think I will go for it. bumpy

RE: diesel class c

why do I get the feeling that everything service/parts/labor/etc. will cost more in a mercedes diesel? bumpy BECAUSE THEY DO! my buddy pays 160$$ for an oil change when mine is 39$$ on my ford E350 V10 reminds me of years back, and I mean more than 25 years, a friend at work called me aside and asked if I thought that $3,000 was reasonable for the routine maintenance on his Volvo. I gulped and said it sounded somewhat high to me. :) at that time I don't think I had ever spent over $3000 total for ALL the maintenance on my vehicles. bumpy

RE: Inflatable cooler

I saw a hard plastic folding one, at Sam's club IIRC that would be better than this one at less money. they made some outlandish claim that it would keep food without ice however. bumpy

RE: diesel class c

RE: BEST ROUTE WITH LEAST MOUNTAINS

90 to Buffalo and then hiway 16 you hit mountains as you cross the Big Horns to Cody. By then you will be an old hand at towing and have no problems coming into Yellowstone via Sylvan Pass. Take your time and think about what you are doing. Mind your speed going down hill, because the chances are small you will go straight back up the other side (there will be a curve or two somewhere ahead. you obviously missed reading the OP, "Hello,my husband and I will be traveling with a fifth wheel from NC to west Yellowstone in august of next year.I am scared of heights and drop offs . I would appreciate some advise as to the route I can take to and from west Yellowstone with no drop-offs .Please advise" bumpy

RE: BEST ROUTE WITH LEAST MOUNTAINS

Hello,my husband and I will be traveling with a fifth wheel from NC to west Yellowstone in august of next year.I am scared of heights and drop offs . I would appreciate some advise as to the route I can take to and from west Yellowstone with no drop-offs .Please advise It’s pretty flat between NC and Montana. Once you reach the eastern edge of the Rockies it’s pretty tough to keep going west from that point without going through mountains. With your fear of heights maybe you should reconsider a trip to the western U.S. as long as you go on I-90 and then drop down to yellowstone there is no real problem. bumpy
