RE: Move to Motorhome

If you buy a 2017 and later Motorhome with a Ford V 10, you'll have the 6 speed transmission and your mileage will be superior to many older rigs. My 31 foot Jayco gets 9.9 mpg at 60 mph. Rigs are advertised as how many they can sleep. The bigger problem is how many they can walk. If your use to a respectable size trailer, it's doubtful you'll be happy in a small B. Take Lazy Daze for example. They generally know what pleases people, and they only sell three sizes; 24,27 and 31 foot. I've seen a number of folks here say 27 is a good sweet spot for size versus maneuverability.

RE: MH accident in gas station!

Isn't that a temp tag on the RV. Might be a pretty inexperienced driver. Easy mistake to make when you're new at driving one of these things. X2. Exactly what I thought. Looks like an inexperienced mistake. He would have been fine if he hadn't chosen that outside island. I feel bad for the guy. Makes you wonder if he's gonna stick with RV'ing.

RE: "We're sorry. An error has Occurred"

Have you contacted their tech folks? I haven't been here in a while, but here I am now, and it seems to be working fine. I haven't contacted them Bill because the rest of the message says it's their server problem. I'm on this site a lot. Usually first thing in the morning and also in the evening. It's my favorite site by far.I am supportive of their tech's and hope they can clear it up.

"We're sorry. An error has Occurred"

What is the matter with this site that they cannot seem to fix. First they say don't use Goodsamforums. OK, Same problem both sites. Sometimes it will load and sometimes it wont. I don't know about you, but I get the "Were Sorry" message about 50% of the time. Did one of their major geeks quit or what??

RE: Deceptive traffic citations

There are two places in my neck of the woods tha run ticket factories. Medford Oregon, and Coburg Oregon. Don't dare go 1 mile and hour over on I 5 in Medford or they nail you. Coburg is so bad the state was going to legislate against them giving tickets. They would sit at the overpass at Coburg and nail everyone. The state invalidated their authority to do that, because I 5 is not Coburg property. Coburg responded by annexing the land on both sides of the freeway so now they can continue to do it. The follow up story was the Coburg police department was rife with corruption and the money misappropriated then resignations by many.

RE: Well if you have the money they will build it

I wonder what that chassis is ?

RE: Find any place on the planet without an address

Are there trillions of three word combinations? I'll take "You are here." That's what surprised me. Who'd a thunk that you could map little sections of the entire world with only 3 words. But I guess the dictionary is proof. I googled how many words in the Oxford dictionary and they came back with 470,000. Maybe one of our math majors can figure that out for us.

Find any place on the planet without an address

I think this is something that might take off. Some clever guys divided the entire planet into trillions of little squares, and gave every one of them a 3 word name. The app is called what3words, and is already in the play store. I suppose it's advantage is you don't need lat/long coordinates. Maybe we'll use this in our RV's some day. Here's the article. I'd like to apply for a special one called Dons/slide/stuck :)

Find a boneyard that carries that chassis. Here is a discussion of that part on

RE: sealed, vacuum bonded roof repair

I searched Triple E on both and Rvtrader and find very few. There was a 2006 Triple E of a different model that was listed for $80,000. Would you say that's about the value of that rig? If it has that much value, insurance should cover it unless you only have liability. You might consult an attorney. It's effectively totaled. I recently saw a fairly new Phaeton in a salvage yard(Coparts) with the exact same issue. Big hole punched through by a big limb. Insurance must have covered it. Have an Attorney write them a letter to begin with.That might be all it takes.

RE: Looking for a new class C

The main thing the Entegra offers is that cabover window, maybe a few other things. But personally, that's meaningless to me. Otherwise it's a Greyhawk by another name. I'd stick with Jayco over Forest River. The J ride plus alone is a really nice advantage over other rigs. Well worth it in my opinion.

RE: Fiberglass Roof

So sorry for your issue.I watched your video, and here are just a couple ideas. You could cover that whole radius area with a long strip of eternabond tape. You can get it in 6 to 8 inch wide and run it down both side's of the rig. Another idea is how the dealer actually does a repair. I copied this from another forum and it is how the dealer fixed a fiberglass roof. This was a repair about a 1/2 foot long. " The tech cleaned the area with non-petroleum based solvent then filled the 6 inch crack with fiberglass resin, then he cut a patch of fiberglass sheeting of the same color and used Marine 5200 vulcanizing adhesive to apply the patch. It bonded to the roof as good as new. He used a heat gun to make the patch soft enough to form to the radius of the roof" Or tear the whole thing off and put a Flex Armor roof on it.

RE: coating rubber roof what have you used

I used Kool Coat on an EPDM roof. Washed the roof, primed it, then 2 coats of Kool Coat and 12 years later was just as good as the day I put it on.

RE: JUst how many GB are needed?

I'm on T mobile and I had them add hotspot for $15 a month. Sooooo much better than campground wifi. Just as fast as a cable connection.

RE: Fiber Glass Roof on new and older class C motorhomes

The Jayco Greyhawks have a fiberglass roof.

RE: Getting very frustrated with this site!

as to a slow death, the actual forum mechanics of this forum has been horrible for as long as I can recall. I've gotten to where I ctrl-C every reply before hitting post message just to be safe... Sadly it seems like many folks have gone elsewhere, but for me I keep on keeping on here. I don't do any of the social media things, so my options are limited. I do a control C before every reply too. It has always seemed to me that the server times you out too soon, especially with a longer reply.

RE: What do I need to start this?

If the chassis is perfect, strip off the entire house, build a solid deck, weld on a rear cab wall, and sell the vehicle as a flat bed hauler. Thats some good practical advice. You might actually make money on it when you sell it.

RE: What do I need to start this?

If your able to remove those green faces from pic 3 and 4 we could probably open those links. Or just repost without those faces. I would agree that you might as well get as much enjoyment out of it as possible, there's a lot of time and money in the project, but if you've got it, I wouldn't discourage you.

RE: building new campground

When traveling and looking for an " over nighter" the FIRST thing I look for is distance from the highway.... We are NOT retired and are traveling to get to our destination for vacation... IF I were a full timer, that would give me a different outlook on that.. As far as tax's and regulations, I agree that as soon as that is no longer a WORKING FARM, you will lose that benefit, whatever it may be.. What it's called is farm deferral of taxes. Farmers get a big reduction of property taxes as long as they farm it. A problem arises when someone new buys the property, and decides not to farm it. When this happens, they have to pay all the back taxes to the beginning of farm deferral, no matter how far back it is. Nobody typically does this, but some buyers are unaware of the law when they buy, and the County hands them a really big bill. I'm in Oregon and we have that here. If it is were I’m thinking it is they are farming some grain and hops for beer. I’m sure that would keep that going along with some rv pads People "fudging" on farm deferral is beginning to be a hot button issue out here. I just read a big article on about how some people are buying large tracks of pristine pieces of land and trying to claim farm deferral. It's starting to get press now, and when that happens they'll clamp down and end the party. I don't know about New York.
