RE: Looking for new motorhome…

I think that you need to look at as short of an overhang behind the rear axles.

RE: Looking at used, canvas repair?

Inspect closely before purchase. Dry out completely before closing up and storage. Beware that some parks don’t allow soft sided RVs. I know that you are an important man Mr.Lwiddis. But why would you lie or intentionally post false information? If you don't know or aren't sure don't put it out there. Your posts seem to paint you as an extremist!

RE: In a quandary

To me it would depend on the habits of the unvaccinated. Are they retired or in the workforce with daily and hourly exposure to the general public? Children attending school? My brother and his wife are not vaccinated.I do not worry to much about them as they are homebodies and probably only leave the farm once a month for groceries so their chance of exposure is limited. On the other hand my sister(is vaccinated) is a home health aide and in and out of peoples homes every day.

RE: Latest project...parking pad for our cargo trailer

Looks like a fine job. It appears that you know just what you want and exactly how too achieve that. Too bad that instead of cheering your initiative,some feel that their advice and criticism is warranted.

RE: Tonneau Cover

You might want to reconsider soft covers with the tri-fold. I've had the old snap/velcro/slot type and yes, they have some serious drawbacks. We've had a newer tri-fold soft cover and it solves a lot of the issues: - 2-3min to install or remove completely. - You can fold up the back two sections if you don't need the entire bed uncovered (takes just a minute). - So far stays dry. Had it for about 1.5yrs so far and very happy. The only thing we'll have to see is how it holds up long term but at $200, I could replace it 3 times over for the cost of hard cover. I have had a "truxedo" trifold on my truck since day one. 8 years old and just like new!. (My truck is not garaged,cost of having three vehicles and a two car garage.)Cover has with stood Rain sun wind and vast quantities of snow.

RE: A tale of two campgrounds

One was a forest, are you upset because there was too many trees in the forest or it wasn't all paved. That is not at all what the OP said or meant. But if it makes you feel better about yourself.....

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

For our off road and daily driver needs a IFS could be the ticket, but will need to test drive to confirm. I would like a soft long travel suspension which it appears how the Bronco is setup. We came close to pulling the trigger on a Jeep Wrangler but with a few things we didn't like about it, and knowing the Bronco was coming we decided to hold off. Based on what I've seen we made the right decision. The Bronco doesn't even have a mid-travel suspension let alone a long travel suspension. Heck, even the Raptor doesn't have a mid-travel suspension, but it is very close. If you are gonna use this vehicle as a daily/mall crawler that is not going to do any heavy rock crawling then IFS is the way to go. It will be noticeably smoother than a solid axle Jeep that you would have to throw a grand or so into for the same smoothness. If you do decide to take it on some serious trails, then make sure you bring along spare parts and/or upgrade to stronger materials if they have a lot of miles on them. Not everyone does rock crawling for their off road adventures. The trade off is pretty high between that ability and on road manners. I drive Wranglers/Renegades probably 1000 miles per week for work and they suck on the highway. For the trails I travel the IFS is a much better compromise. But I have not been able to test the Bronco yet to do a direct comparison. I understand that. Not downing the Bronco. It is just not ideal for the way I off road. No doubt an IFS is more comfortable for those that need that, but it is just not as capable or as strong. Another thing I hate about IFS's off road is that they teeter totter on a lot of obstacles which is an uneasy feeling. It is like the GM HDs. No doubt they give their trucks a more comfortable ride stock, but it is not as strong/reliable as solid axles of the Ford and Ram HDs when you start adding bigger tires and heavy off roading. They also cannot take the abuse that a solid axle can which is why it is common for the GM HD front ends to snap on the track or at truck pulls. Not downing the Bronco? 5 posts all saying that it does not work. You are aware that it is probably only 10% or less is into serious rock crawling don't you. The other 90 % is mud, overlanding,FS roads,hill climbing,etc. I have seen videos of the Bronco taking on the Rubicon and it did just as well as the Jeeps. You probably could have made one post saying that while the Bronco would suffice for most,it just isn't for you.

RE: Our first, and last, TT rental experience

Dang, I have owned three trailers. All of them have developed some problem or another. I have owned probably twenty vehicles. all of them have had one problem or another. I have owned four homes. All of them has developed one problem or another. I have had three wives, all of them developed one problem or another Life ain't problem free,when they are your own problems they are not as serious as problems caused by others.

RE: Coal-Rolling Teen Pickup Truck Driver Hits Six Cyclists

As a cyclist I have been smoked out by diesels, cussed at, called odd names, had glass bottles thrown at me on multiple occasions, swerved into on purpose and narrowly missed, and a few other things. I am very conscious about how and if I impact traffic so I always make a habit of riding on roads with wide shoulders. Once I was with my family, my son was 10 at the time and someone threw bottles at us. For no reason. I simply don't get the angst of some people toward cyclists, especially if they aren't impacting their ability to drive. Why the hate? I get that there are some cyclists with a sense of entitlement that help foster this angst. But it's a very few. Most of these instances are people that harass cyclists for fun. OK I have my flame suit on.First off, there is absolutely no justification for this kids actions or any other violence against bikers, BUTI live in an area wher bicycling is a thing. The roads are filthy with Lance Armstrong wantabbe's that ride several abreast in the lane ignore every traffic rule ever thought off, Run stop signs en masse. A single riger is normally not a problem, but when the clubs ride and twenty or thirty, think they are in competition they have no respect for the real purpose of the roads. Call me a hater!

RE: Our first, and last, TT rental experience

Consider it a preview of what you will be up against if/when you buy your own unit. No,If it was their own trailer,the mess either would not be there, or cleaned up when it happened. The black tank would have been clean, the fridge would have been running and cool, the maintenance and repair would have been completed. Rental experience is not at all equal to ownership!

RE: Remembering my best physical condition

My best years were between mid thirties and fifty.I may have been stronger and faster a few years younger,but with maturity I grew a brain that eliminated the need to be the strongest and fastest. I just became the smartest and most efficient. Near twenty years peak of physical and mental prowess.

RE: Coffee Survey

Indian Monsooned Malabar is a taste you have to try. Needs to be roasted just into 2nd crack,and then rested three days to bring out the nuances. Source for Indian coffee pls? Sweet San Francisco or Berkeley can't remember which. Good service. There are several other green bean purveyors, just google green coffee

I have insurance. I also live in an area where crime is not rampant,we have excellent laws that demand positive ID and photographs for every pawn shop or scrap yard transaction. Feel bad for the majority of you that seem to be living in fear of the next crime.

RE: Coffee Survey

Like I said,Do you like coffee or just drink it. For those that just drink it (grocery Kuerig instant) just once go to a local coffee shop,Certainly not a charbucks or other chain, ask for a single origin cup,and then you will find what coffee should taste like.

RE: Pet peeve, neighbors leave porch light on

Of course lights are 100% acceptable when you are out and active. When you retire for the night just turn them off. Don't understand why folks like light. Darkness is our friend. I like it when the bad guys bang their shins and trip over stuff trying to get to my gear. Why should I light the way to their paradise?

RE: Front Bunk Door Woes - Finding the Right Parts

You need to be more specific. What brand and model do you own? Which seals and "things" do you need? Unless you can purchase from the manufacturer you quest will take research of the google variety. It is doubtful, to me anyway, that Rv manufacturers design their own seals just not the volume to justify one off design. Trim lok seemsto make a variety. Check Grainger and Amazon for matching seals.
