RE: Outback 341RD – Grand Design 3100RD or ???

IMHO the kitchen layout of the Grand Design is more user friendly than the Outback.

RE: MaxxAir II Vent Covers - Installation

We've had 6 campers and I always mounted the vent covers directly to the aluminum frame of the fan. I can't see how his method would increase labor costs.

RE: Quality of Forest River

What is the steel wool for?Mostly to fill the hole, also to slow the mice chewing. Don't use steel wool as it will rust over time. Use stainless steel wool available at WalMart by the kitchen sponges.

RE: Trailer windshield

Anti-vandalism film might be a good option for preventing damage as well. It's used by transit agencies on both vehicles and bus stops, and it's intended to prevent diamond-etching and rock breaks. Sounds like a good idea, where can it be purchased from?

RE: WI state parks and private campground will be open May 1

Not allowing free admission when they reopen, state sticker will be required. Living 7 minutes from a SP I'm really looking forward to the reopening!

RE: Rockwood Roo v. Sportsmen Coyote 23 - both 2005

You'll probably get more feedback if you post your question in the Hybrid section. The Folding Trailer section is mainly for pop up camper posts.

RE: Wisconsin Campgrounds

The governor just announced that 40 state parks will be closing effective April 10th. Dan A while back our governor dropped all entry fees to WI State Parks/Forests. Attendance sky rocketed at most SP's. Even though the campground was closed an estimated 16,457 'day visitors' were at High Cliff SP over the weekend of April 4-5 leaving vandalism and alot of garbage in their wake. By the pic on the DNR website there was little if any social distancing taking place. Another example of a few have to ruin it for the many.

RE: Closed campgrounds

Add Wisconsin State Parks for camping until end of April as of now. Day use areas are currently open.

RE: Thoughts on the 'need' factor of a main line surge protector

We all have a fire extinguisher in our campers and hope we never have to put it to the test. But if we need it it's there. Same thing with a EMS. If you consider what it will cost to replace all the onboard electronics: AC, furnace board, tv, fridge, water heater, etc, an EMS is low cost insurance.

RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

I was talking to a guy that's snowbirding next to me and we were discussing RV prices, discounts consumers should expect etc. He works for a dealer in his home state during the summer months so he was able to buy his rig at dealer price. He told me his 2019 Jayco Pinnacle 5th wheel had an MSRP of just over $100,000 but he paid $54,000 for it. He said a dealer typically is paying 51%-52% of the MSRP + the freight cost to get the rig to the dealer. I told him I had recently gone to the Tampa RV Super show and dealers were advertising 20%-28% off MSRP depending on the rig, but no mention of the other costs dealers like to attempt to get consumers to pay for (Freight, Prep, PDI fee etc.) so there was no way of knowing if the prices were "out the door" prices. He said that you should start negotiations at 30% of MSRP and then get the dealer to "throw in some stuff". I said I got 28% off my rig plus tax but I didn't get anything else thrown in. He felt I could have done better. I felt if I walked away hoping the dealer would do better, I would have not been able to buy my rig from that dealer. I had a strong feeling that was as good a deal that I was going to get on the 5th wheel I bought. So my thoughts are this...Why should a dealer be making more than 2 grand on any sale? That seems like a fair profit for them. Realistically I'm pretty sure we aren't going to get discounts that deep but why not? Why do we accept 25%-30% off MSRP, allowing the dealers to make a bundle on each sale, and then have to accept lousy customer service following the sale in many instances? If the 51%-52% numbers my neighbor talked about are accurate, shouldn't we be negotiating up from that number rather than down from the MSRP? Considering their overhead I doubt they'd stay in business very long.
