RE: Looking aft used trucks - "?' flood damage

The buyers that come to these salvage auctions are generally not crooks , they do not want the problems that can come with a bad auto or title . Myself I have been called to testify against a Georgia dealer who had a successful system to "wash " titles .He got 2 years as a guest of the state and $110,000 fine . Carfax is not the answer , I once bought a new Ford from a dealer and as it was free to me I ran the Carfax , they said that it had been in a wreck 4 months before it came off the factory floor .I am sure most are correct but myself would not waste my time or money on Carfax .

RE: Looking aft used trucks - "?' flood damage

By law salvage autos are marked with DMV , maybe ! I spent 30 years in Insurance salvage and there are many ways that this fails . Many large businesses and municipalities will " self insure " and no DMV will be involved . Some autos will only carry liability insurance , if flooded no insurance claim so no DMV .Out right flood fraud is not a giant problem in this country but do not assume that Carfax is a cure all. After a large storm insurance companies will call in their CAT TEAM and prepare to handle anywhere from ten to 40, 000 autos .Some autos may sit in the salvage yards for years as we can not sell them until paperwork catches up . Companies such as Sadisco, Copart , Manheim and a whole bunch of alphabet ones will transport ,do paper work and sell these autos .

RE: Phone numbers on important things

As a manager of a resort on St John USVI We constantly had honest people turn in cameras , dive gear , bikini tops ,travelers checks , none of which had any identity information . Put your cell phone number on every thing except teenage kids .

RE: Looking aft used trucks - "?' flood damage

I believe that ya'll have scared everyone away from a used vehicles. Every thing that he noticed is normal wear and tear . I just went outside and looked at my 5 year old truck and it looks as he described , maybe it flooded when I was not looking !

RE: Tow/Haul off or on(ram)

I use Tow/Haul going up hill but on downhill it is much to aggressive resulting in revs that do not appeal to me .

RE: Run the USA is what?

We have a Winnie Mini TT 20 foot and pull it with a 2500 Ram CTD . No need for a WDH . We are travelers , not campers . We take a 8 to 15 day trip every 6 or 8 weeks . Smaller is better for us , dry camping most nites , back roads and yard sales . Next week we go north to Maine and then ??, I would have no qualmes taking my rig anywhere that we want to go . We have owned 14 RVs and have used WDH when needed , I routinely deliver cargo trailers up to 32 feet with no WDH .

RE: Duramax value

You can still buy a 3/4 ton Ram CTD with no bells or whistles for less than 50K. I would buy new !

RE: Anyone have any knowledge about Shadow Cruisers?

We liked the one or two that we got to see inside , liked white cabinets and the full time bed , plenty of room with or with out slide open , tandem axles . We had been pulling large trailers for 30 years and pulling 20 feet made ya feel like you were driving a ports car ! The first one we looked at had bubbles in front ' fiber glass '. The second had went to hell and back with Audie Murphey . We eventually stumbled on a Winnie Mini which was very similar . We are not campers , we are travelers , move every day or two , never with plans or reservations , we make large multi-state circles of 12 to 20 days . Last nite a cow pasture in central Florida ,

RE: Anyone have any knowledge about Shadow Cruisers?

Six months ago we drove all over Florida looking for one . I believe that year in good shape would be priced 7K to 8K . The one I was looking for had a slide . Never found one but we bought a winnie Mini 20 footer . I got tired of dragging 30 feet of trailer around and only using 20 feet . Smaller sure works for us , we are travelers not campers !
