RE: No one is heading south?

No one is heading south??? Of course they are. No different than any other year. I have seen many RVs arriving in Mesa already. The RV parks in our part of town are beginning to see a lot of activity. The Canadians are arriving also. My neighbor works in the office at one of the larger ones. She reports they are super busy already, and have asked her to work more hours. The grocery stores are definitely getting more busy....and Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Target. Not to mention the restaurants. Go to any McDonalds early in the morning and you will see table full of snowbirds drinking coffee and visiting. Oh yes...there are plenty of them here already.

RE: Full-time in the Arizona heat

Roof top MaxxAir vent covers...and vent pillows...and reflective bubble for the shower dome...and dual pane windows...and dual sun screen/blackout roller shades...and window awnings...and an Adco windshield cover...and a surge protector. All of the above works well for us. Yes, I have spent several summers full-time in an RV in Arizona, a number of years ago. It can be done, with a bit of caution and common sense. If at all possible, you want the windshield facing east, so it only gets the morning sun. And any other type of shade or trees will provide significant benefit. No longer full-time, but we do use our motorhome in the summer for trips here and there around Arizona.

RE: Chassis-E450 VS E350

Our 25 footer (26 bumper to bumper) on the E450 seems to be the sweet spot, to me. The 182" wheelbase helps. Not a lot of rear overhang to drag on driveways or gas station entrances. OCCC of 4,209 lbs. We take along all we need, for weeks at at time. Typically carry 1/2 tank of fresh water. No chance of it ever being overloaded. I had a front end alignment when it was new and loaded for travel. It has been smooth as can be from that day forward. No handling issues, even in pretty high wind. Blow by from big trucks doesn't bother at all. I'm comfortable driving it all day without arriving at the destination worn out.

RE: Leveling Jacks pro & con

I installed Bigfoot jacks on my 31'. Love them. Really adds in the stability when "walking around" inside. The big "feet" that they use haven't needed any additional blocking so far after 2 years use, although I do carry blocks in case. I bought mine on sale for $1,995 and installed them myself. If they were 2-3 times that cost, I probably could have lived without them, but very happy to have them. We had Bigfoot jacks installed on ours in June. Love them.

RE: Exterior Windshield Cover Issues

I have the ADCO covers with magnets and no matter how hot or how long it's exposed to direct sunlight, the magnets have never melted. Their magnets are embedded within the material so they don't come in direct contact with the RV's body. Agreed. Never have had a problem with our ADCO cover.

RE: No Privacy Curtain w/Overhead Bed?

Ours came with a good quality lined privacy curtain for the overhead bunk. The corner bed in the back did not, so we added a ceiling track and curtain there. It was pretty easy to do.

RE: Air Conditioner Performance

Actually the AC did better today. I started everything early in the morning and we minimized going in and out. It stayed decent in the heat of the afternoon.I would never shut it off in TX heat. Let it cycle overnight and as the sun comes up it will run continuous all day. Running on the genny. Don't have a 30 amp to plug in to. Prefer not to run the genny all night. Perhaps not the wisest choice to run the generator while sleeping. Three people recently died in two different incidents, at the Sturgis motorcycle rally. They were overcome by carbon monoxide from a generator, while they slept in an RV.

RE: Stabilizing a Class C

I installed Bigfoot Levelers on our 31' Winnebago C, Love Them ! Previously,without jacks my 14 year old son who sleeps in the over the cab bunk who rock the whole RV while turning over in his sleep. Now, it's quite solid. Obviously, the leggo blocks worked fine, but Bigfoot had a sale and I'm very happy I did them. We installed BigFoot Levelers also. Very happy with the results.

RE: Electric steps for RV that did not come with them

Not....having an electric step was something we considered a 'positive' thing when we were shopping for our Class C. One less thing to go wrong, become problematic, or need maintenance.

RE: front cap oxidation

Ours is a 2017. Our neighbors is a 2018. Both have totally faded front caps. (brown) I have had ours professionally buffed out and polished 3 times, and have also done it myself twice in between those attempts. It only lasts a matter of weeks each time, before it looks bad again. The detail pros tell me they see it often from Winnebago. An inferior paint process. The only remedy is to have it repainted.

RE: How do you feel about your corner bed?

I'll bet a lot of how many people feel about the corner bed.....depends on their age.

RE: The Fascinating Evolution of the American RV

We were just there in June. Really interesting.

RE: Traveling without a car

At almost 64, I am still perfectly capable of hooking up a towbar to a motorhome. Did it quite a lot during a full time adventure for 8 years, in two different Class A rigs. A car was a definite advantage then. Today...downsizing wins the day so just don't care to tow anything any longer. I can assure you, it is not the end of the world. We are quite happy with the current arrangement. Who knows? That may change in the future.

RE: Switch to houseboat?

Some years ago friends of mine that had a houseboat always used the expression: BOAT= Break Out Another Thousand....every time they stepped aboard. I suspect that 'thousand' figure is at least double or triple today.

RE: How about some common courtesy...

Common courtesy?? Wasting your breath. This type of 'offender' is not typically part of the audience on this or any other forum. They don't even usually realize they are annoying others, or frankly would not care, even if they do realize it. They consider it "your problem" and will just continue on doing what they are doing. Confront your own risk. We too often notice that it only gets worse as more and more inconsiderate newbies join the RV lifestyle. All you can really do is...move on.

RE: Traveling without a car

We don't tow a car, and have no desire to. Have just returned from a 5,000 mile, 14 state trip. Not towing a car is not much of a sacrifice....if you are organized and plan ahead. Just like at home, we seldom eat our meals out....and stock the pantry/refrigerator accordingly, for several days at a time. We keep a running list of anything we may run out of or need, and can stop at any Walmart, grocery store, etc...along the way. No problem. As for sight can often get a satellite view on your phone, ipad, computer...of see if there is suitable RV parking. We have no problem walking, when required. Or, at places we plan to stay a few days to check out the area or things of interest...we rent a car for 2 or 3 days or longer. We just find ways to make it work. It can be done. And to the OP...we were just in Weatherford for the night 2 weeks ago, for the second time. Love the Wanderlust RV park there.

RE: Looking for a Class C. No cabover with washer combo.

What the OP is describing is often found in 'Super C' models.

RE: Mesa,Az RV Park

Coming to August?? In a 40ft 5th wheel? You are a glutton for punishment!! LOL And I live here!! So yes, I do know quite well what it is like. Hope you have one, or even better...Two...good air conditioners. You will need them both, 24/7. Plenty of RV parks to choose from in Mesa. And yes, most will be a mix of park model and RV. It's just the way it is here. Keep in mind that almost all are also "over 55" restricted. Check out The Resort. Or Valle Del Oro. Or Monte Vista. All 3 are very nice parks. Nice amenities. Close to anything and everything you could want or need. Easy highway 60 access.

RE: $100 per night

Unlike some here, we have had excellent results with KOA. Easy to determine the cost before arrival, etc. Very few complaints. I figure if there are that many that don't like KOA, it just makes it easier for those of us that do to find a spot. Just left the KOA in Santa Fe, New Mexico this morning after spending two nights there. Sure, the cost was a bit higher than some. We anticipated that, and will gladly return.
