RE: Should I make reservations or wing it?

We wing it. We are members of Good Sam, KOA and Passport America. I check these 3 Websites/Guide Books to see if there are recommended campgrounds n our route for the following day-within 250-400 miles of driving each day. Usually there is a variety of campgrounds and I start phoning. We have ended up at some really great campgrounds that we wouldn't have thought of otherwise. We always try to arrive at a campground 3-5:00. That way, if we don't like the site assigned to us we can look around to find 1 that fits our needs better. Also, we have a smaller Class C now so there is a larger variety of sites available to us.

RE: Death Valley recommendations?

Love touring Death Valley. We initially stayed in our 5'vr-at Furnace Creek campground. During a heavy rain storm the campground host told us to get out immediately. We ended up Stovepipe Wells-higher ground. Keep an eye out for the weather. Definitely check out Scotties Castle.

RE: Keystone Avalanche or Best quality 5th wheel

Take a look at Northwood products. Arctic Fox and Nash have continually been rated well--http://northwoodmfg.com/5th-wheels/arctic-fox-5th-wheels/

RE: Stand-alone GPS or smartphone?

For us the GPS is the way to go. Our Magellen RoadMate has a 7" screen, Audio is great as well as the mapping directions. Works well with Detour routes, too.

RE: Motorhome financing

You can do better on the finance interest rate-we got 4.5% on our Class C and it was used-2017. Pre-payment penalty is not acceptable.

RE: Has any Forum members here tried this?

Stayed at the Pala Casino, in So Calif., and really enjoyed our stay. The R.V campground was full hook-up, big level cement pads, had trash pick-up, green space between sites, free shuttle to the Casino, restaurants, etc. Was super clean and had great view of the MTN's. We are not gamblers but sure enjoyed our stay there.

RE: Should I Be Concerned?

I am a firm believer in "Murphy's Law" Can you imagine why anyone would be smoking several cigarette's in front of your trailer, on your property? How easy would it be to back a truck up to your trailer and haul it away?

RE: ? 3 Purchasing Questions

My thinking is a Dlr. isn't going to let a legitimate buyer walk away. You can always make an offer-they can accept or refuse or counter with another offer as you can, as well. Their bigger profit is in financing or extra warranties. Also, if you have shopped around-let them know another Dlr. will sell at a lower price. If you finance suggest a lower interest rate than what there're asking or let them know you will get your own financing. Be sure to check out Dlr. Service Dept. rates and what you are entitled to using their Service. Last year I bought a used 2017 Class C from a Dlr. They were asking 68K-I offered 48K-we ended up 52k and a free service warranty for 5 years, from that Dlr. and 1 3/4% off their suggested finance rate.

RE: KOA Membership

We have been KOA members for years. When we camp-we generally go on trips as versus weekends and typically stay at Good Sam campgrounds or KOA. As was mentioned KOA tends to be a bit more $$'s but they generally offer more. Usually they have stores for camping supplies-pool areas-dog walks, and informative and friendly staff, clean restrooms and showers. For us-we definitely get our Bang for the Buck. Like their Camp Ground Directories as well

RE: Finally a Decision...

We did something similar but a bit different. Sold the Arctic Fox and bought a small Class C-24 ft. Chev 4500 chassis with V-8 Gas engine. Bought the Class C used--2017-8500 miles--figuring most of the wrinkles would be ironed out and from the Dlr. that originally sold it. And still under Factory warranty. So far, so good-took it on a trip to McAllen, Tx.(Son-In-Law with Homeland Sec.)-ran great and really easy to drive-even Bev drove. Also, big enough and heavy duty enough to get a toad, if needed. Where ever we went we used "Uber" which worked really well because the drivers would tell us all the neat places to visit. Best to Ruthie, L

RE: When to quit.

I am turning 75 shortly. Earlier this year we sold our Arctic Fox 5th wheel and bought a small-24 ft- Class C. Had to back off RV'ing for a couple of years because my D.W. was ill. She is good now and we are raring to get out there again. Our 1st trip with the Class C we took a longish trip to McAllen, Tx. to visit our daughter and her family. Had a blast and we're planning to get going again, soon.

RE: Need recommendations for Arizona, New Mexico trip

Might think of making a stop at Williams, Az.-fun place to visit along RT 66/40 and you can take a really fun train ride from there to the Grand Canyon. Has RV Campgrounds. Also, saw you mentioned Zion Nat Park-Bryce Canyon is another great place to visit/tour. https://experiencewilliams.com/things-to-do-in-williams-arizona/ https://utah.com/bryce-canyon-national-park
