RE: 40’+ limitations?

I have seen comments like the ones in this post but ours is 40 foot and I have never had a problem anywhere we go. With that being said we normally do not stay in primitive type campground or state parks. Mostly private cg's for us with the occasional KOA.

RE: Grand Design Quality

When we decided to sell our dp coach and go back to fivers it came down to GD or Open Range 3X models. Based on floor plans the 3x had what we wanted plus 102 inch chassis. We went with the 3x and have not looked back. I can say the 3X is the coolest in the summer and warmest in the winter we have ever had. With that being said no matter what you decide on be prepared for the simplest of things to be in need of a tweak there and a tweak here. We have had several and it always hold true.

RE: Moving to a 5th Wheel

We had a Sunnybrook fiver and then I decided to go Class A. It was a 40 footer dp. After several thousand miles the Class A did not suit our travel style especially after looking at the upper end of new fivers. New fivers have auto leveling systems, and honestly there is very little difference in setting up the newer fivers vs a Class A speaking from experience. The advice on getting a truck first is definitely the way to start. I sold my F-250 and went with a F-350 dually so I could get the floorplan and the fiver we wanted. Diesel is something you will not be sorry you have. If fuel mileage and the cost of oil changes cause heartburn you probably need to rethink the rv lifestyle in general. Do as much truck as you can first and then start your hunt for the perfect fiver for your family.

RE: Retirement

I retired at 57 and took ss at 62. I ran the numbers and I would have been 79 when it broke even. Therefore I am one happy retired man.

RE: 5th Wheel entry steps

I understand your dilemma. One of the most haves for us was regular folding steps. Sometimes you cannot get your fiver into a position at rest stops that you can safely leave those rigid steps out but since you already have them maybe you can rig them so once you are inside you can pull them up behind you.

RE: Trying to decide on whether or not to purchase-DECISION

Good to hear you are thinking of starting rving again. As far as sites being non available we have not had even a remote problem getting a site almost anywhere we want. Our fiver is 40 feet as well. I most certainly would not worry about that. Now to the dog thing. We have not ran into a cg yet after all the decades we have travelled that had a problem as long as the dogs don't bark continuously. Heck, there are a couple of cgs we actually leave a spare key fob with the front desk in case a fire or something happens that Lucky and Lucie would need to be moved. Now with that being said we keep a mifi in the fiver with a Cloud Cam camera that records movement and sound. We also can talk to our dogs. We also have a temp stik that records and monitors temp and humidity. I also have my inverter set to auto activate in case of a power failure along with mine and my wife's smart phones to alert us. One of my most favorite things to do is if a neighbor tells us our dogs bark I pull out my smart phone, open the app and tell them show me where they are moving let alone barking. Don't know about seasonal cg's so I will let that one go. We do stay 3 months at one cg each year simply because we love it. Safe travels

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Good to hear everyone is getting back to feeling normal again. I will be so glad when herd immunity is achieved.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

I hope those of you who just got the second dose are feeling better today. As I previously stated my DW had a rough 12 hours or so but when she started feeling better it was a steady progression. I am sure I will be off on my percentages some but it seems that around 61% of women are getting the vaccines but 79% of the bad side effects too. The nurse who I talked to while I was in my 15 min observation time told me those facts. The nurse said she had side effects after 36 hours. But the good thing is after 2 weeks you can feel good that you have done all you can do to ward off serious complications if you do get Covid. We are still mask wearing and until herd immunity is declared will continue to do so.

RE: Wheel bearing advice

As MFL stated bearings are checked way too often. I have lived on a farm all my life and we never pulled bearings on our tractors and they travel in the dirt. I never have pulled bearings on any of my vehicles. When I purchase a new fiver I pull the bearings, clean, repack and inspect the brakes. Then I may go 7 years before doing it again. In my previous fiver I checked the bearings twice in 15 years and the second time was a waste of my time. This is just my thoughts on it.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

DW is back to normal today. Her back is a little sore from the aching yesterday but other than that all is good. I am glad we got this over with as we will soon be travelling for a few months. Safe travels everyone.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Regardless of the legal wording for all the vaccines, I had rather take my chances with a vaccine than go thru what a lot of folks I know did with the actual virus. Quite a few did not make it.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Well here is our update. I received my second shot Thursday. My arm was a little sore but not bad. I even changed the oil in my dually yesterday afternoon. My wife receieved her second shot Friday morning. Her arm was so sore she could barely touch it. Last night she was running a fever of 101, chills, sweats, and body aches. Today she is still with a slight fever and aches but no chills or sweats. I think she will be over the worse of it by later this afternoon and hopefully she will rest better tonight. She is taking Tylenol. According to the ladies at the clinic we talked to it appears women have more adverse reactions than men.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Yep I had heard the same thing but wanted to mention what our doctor said. Both of us were on the fence post on whether to take anything before hand or not. Due to the season changing I take Allegra anyway but have not since Tuesday. Vaccines normally don't bother me other than a sore arm so I am thinking to hold off before hand. There is just not enough data as of yet to really know exactly what is the best. I think all professionals are being overly cautious and i appreciate that. What I do know is one day of feeling bad is so much better than a ventilator for a month.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

I get my second shot tomorrow and the wife Friday. Our primary doctor told us to take a Allegra and 650 mg of Tylenol about two hours prior to getting the shot. He said that would really help IF we were to develop any reactions. I will let you know how things go for us.

RE: Would you do it?

To answer your question directly, no I would not do it and I didn't do it when I purchased the fiver in my sig. I had a F-250 diesel and due to weight I upgraded.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Wife and I both got our 1st Moderna shot today. As of this thread neither of us can tell it. Now with that being said we may have sore arms tomorrow but this shot did not bother me like my pneumonia booster shot did on the 20th of January. My arm felt like it was going to drop off!!! But I had rather have some discomfort today than hooked up to a ventilator later on.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

I am getting my first shot this Thursday. I have been eligible for a while now but due to getting a pneumonia booster I had to wait three weeks. Then the snow/ice storms delayed vaccine shipments.

RE: surge protector and water filters

We have the progressive industries EMS-PT50X. Since we have a residential frig and washer/dryer we have a on the go water softener. Hard water is bad on the ice maker and especially the washer. Not all but a lot of cg's have hard water. So instead of checking each cg we stay at I just hook up the softener. I strongly recommend the EMS PT 50 X or an equivalent model. It really works on saving your camper and will not let your a/c or frig try to come back on without a delay.

RE: Unnecessary Warnings Shown on Products

There's one now. A woman sprayed Gorilla super glue om her hair. She is suing Gorilla Glue because the can doe not say not for use on hair! It says not for use on skin etc but not hair. What moron would do this unless they are rolling the dice for big bucks in a lawsuit! Any judge that awards her a dime, should be laughed out of the Courthouse along with her! And she was on TV this morning complaining about it. A plastic surgeon in CA is going to fix her up. The cost is 12K but he is doing it free. What in the world is happening:S

RE: CDL Required to Drive Class A?

In NC, anything over 26001 you have to have a Class B. If diesel you need air brake endorsement. I had both when I had my 40 foot dp. As already stated, check with your state requirement.
