RE: I like it!

I don't see the purpose for the deck. What's wrong with the ground?? some folks seem to like the various RVs with a rear deck on their garage models, expanding the "living area". bumpy

RE: Class A quality

my first post was " is any of this $30 K difference because one has a fiberglass roof and the other rubber or TPO? " I was merely pointing out construction differences that could run up the cost. I did not in that post knock tpo or rubber just pointing out one potential cause. somebody else mentioned FBP as another price hiker. others with obsessions whined about my dislike of rubber roofs on rvs. and I feel obligated when new rvers are looking at buying a unit, point out what I consider to be lower quality, such as 16 inch tires, wood construction instead of aluminum, and tin siding vs fiberglass. Oh there stupid me did it again, I guess tin is incorrect. bumpy

RE: Class A quality

You also lump TPO in with rubber - that is a very uneducated move, two completely different animals, and yes, I've had both - 2 with rubber and 3 with Brite-Tek. . I did NOT Lump anything. in fact I was clear to differentiate between the two. bumpy Your quote; because one has a fiberglass roof and the other rubber/TPO Sure looks lumped in to me! :B OK, would "the other rubber or TPO" suit you better. but my original post only pointed out that construction could affect the difference/increase in cost. not that one was better than the other. others whined about an obsession. bumpy

RE: Class A quality

is any of this $30 K difference because one has a fiberglass roof and the other rubber/TPO? bumpyBumpy, what is your obsession with this. I have a TPO roof that is 19 years old and still in very good condition. I could care less if an RV has a fiberglass or TPO or whatever kind of roof as long as it hasn't been abused and has been maintained. my "obsession" is that a fiberglass roof is superior to rubber, etc., and I would (and did) pay several thousand dollars extra for mine. that is why I gave the OP something to think about in making his cost comparisons. I consider this to be more important than the eye candy that frequently gets mentioned here, such as a fake fireplace and a "J" sofa. and I would consider buying a TPO roof which is what you have had good luck with, but would not buy a rubber roofed one. bumpy

RE: Loft Bed Doesn’t move

Is the parking break set? that was my thought also. bumpy

RE: Changing a tire yourself

when I bought my first class A the salesman pointed out that it came with a spare but no jack. he said there was a reason for that. at least carry an unmounted spare. bumpy

RE: Water pump question

RE: First RV Grand Design vs Keystone cougar

IIRC the grand design brochure has a section of 1/2 ton towables, don't remember if they were TTs or 5ers however. bumpy

RE: 400 mile electric RV

I wonder how many at Princeton have solar on their roof and drive an EV.....Hmmm, if 27 acres provides only 5-6%, then at this rate, around 500 acres would be required to supply 100%. This study says roof solar could do it all. https://theconversation.com/solar-panels-on-half-the-worlds-roofs-could-meet-its-entire-electricity-demand-new-research-169302 We found that we would only need 50% of the world’s rooftops to be covered with solar panels in order to deliver enough electricity to meet the world’s yearly needs. Gee "ONLY" 50% bumpy

RE: Tonneau Cover

So I ask, of those who have a rear sliding window, do you use them all that often and do some of you also have them blocked by a canopy? Don't have a dog and the kids are grown and I rarely have anyone in the back seats. Marv I opened mine once. the only benefit I see is you can stick 8 ft 2x2s, etc.through them. bumpy

RE: Tonneau Cover

when I bought my tacoma I got the three piece folding cover. works great. I am sure there are generic versions that will fit your truck. and anything that I don't want to get wet I put in plastic totes. bumpy

RE: suggestion for cargo floor liner

those 1 ft square floor mats that lock together like a jig saw puzzle and look to be about 1/2 inch??? thick would be easy to install. bumpy

RE: suggestion for cargo floor liner

try a farm and home type of store that has rubberized mats, etc. but nothing short of tying stuff down under netting etc. will be sufficient, IMHO bumpy
