RE: How do you sell a relatively new rv and downsize/moneywise?

Yes, I noticed new ones for sale less than I paid so I will wait it out. I ask because we tried to sell a simple $20k pick up truck in our area of NY and it just sat, and sat. We ended up having to trade it in so I don't think a $100k + rv will sell on the front lawn...people don't have that kind of money in pocket...need financing.

RE: How do you sell a relatively new rv and downsize/moneywise?

We paid cash for it so no troubles there and I think we got a pretty good deal and have put lots of mods into it including 5 more solar panels...to make it a mean boondocking machine. Works great for that accept just cannot get this beast into where we/I really want to go. A truck camper girl in a class A...but I do like the tankage. I know I cannot have everything. Wish I knew what I wanted next modelwise.

RE: How do you sell a relatively new rv and downsize/moneywise?

Oh, yeah, I am fully aware that no rv is anywhere near perfect. My issues are more access to boondocking areas. I wanted used and usually we do but we stumbled upon a new vision with a 12 cf refrigerator and king bed in an interior color that was not nasty pukey brown and I was sold/farmhouse white. I've thought about a schoolie but access on that is just as bad but it would be no slides. Right now I want a motorhome but eventually I may not although the convenience to food and bathroom is really nice. We spent two days in Middlebury IN/service getting work done...mostly minor stuff as hubby had fixed the leaky plumbing/couldn't wait on that. Our vision 27a was the cheapest unit there waiting for work...surrounded by $750k plus motorhomes. I've heard repeatedly that whatever price you paid doesn't matter still going to be issues. Unfortunate it is.

How do you sell a relatively new rv and downsize/moneywise?

We bought a new 2022 Entegra Vision 27A in February 2022/30 feet. Like a lot of things about it but we also had to do fixes that we should not have had to (leaky drains, front end align, lots of handling stuff, etc) I am not sure we will keep it for the 10+ years I thought we would. What I do not like is we cannot go anywhere near what our former 24 foot class C can do because we are lower, less nibble...lol. We do mostly boondocking with some paid/volunteer Florida winter time. We are living in it and will until we decide to sell it. I am thinking we will then go to a truck and trailer....so it will cost us less than what we sell Vision for. Have folks here been able to sell pricey rv's (most way more than ours) themselves? Through consignment? Then take that money and get something else. So trade in is out even if it was even steven which it won't be.

Route 89A in utah

We've never done this one before...now a class A 30 foot with toad. How is it...steep? which we have done just yesterday on 530 in Wyoming/191 in Utah.

RE: Fireworks

Something that has been very helpful to daughters dog is Homeopathic remedy, Phosphorus 30c. She tried cbd and thundershirt and NOPE. However if she doses Phosphorus 30c before the thunder starts (watch the weather!), then there is not the panting and hiding but a relaxed dog. Try it...cheap!

RE: Wipes!!!

you CAN put a clean wipe in a container of water to see if it actually does decompose quickly or not to determine this.

RE: Windshield sun block

We like our magna shade...after initial set up (youtube) it is easy on and easy off. You can see out of it but no one can see in unless it is night time and you have lights on. Cuts down on heat in front. Expensive but I would get it again.

Do I need to condition my slide seals against drying out?

Heard this on another group and its something we never thought about and we have two slides on our new class A. If so, what do I use?

Want to insulate front of class A (dog house?) with what?

For colder weather camping, we are looking to insulate the front area below big front window of our class A. What does hubby need to use? I assume we remove from inside? Thanks! Donna

RE: ez pass/toll pass placement on class A

Wait! License plate mounted on? what is that? I can use the window for now.

ez pass/toll pass placement on class A

I did look for topics on this but no go. Where do I put my ezpass on a class A. The bottom of front window is fairly high up...good enough?

RE: Need big collapsible bowl for salad for 4

Oh, yeah. Looks like what I need! Thank you!

RE: Need big collapsible bowl for salad for 4

Was hoping for a lid and sadly most on amazon are too small. I think I looked there really well prior...maybe have to try camping world to see what they have?

Need big collapsible bowl for salad for 4

I've been hunting for a big collapsible bowl for salad for 4 people...nice sized salads but not dinner salads. Would really like collapsible...roughly 6+ quart size or larger. My non collapsible 9 x 3.5 really is not big enough. I've got nothing so far that is big enough.

RE: Toronto to Newfoundland

Planning on a trip to NFLD in June. What's the experience on the ferry from Nova Scotia. Driving a 24ft Motorhome. Any challenges, things to watch for? Was thinking of coming in from Quebec and leaving by way of the Maritimes but may be too challenging of a drive road wise? Anyone with any thought's?? Thanks Paul We did the trip in 2013 (leaving via labrador to ny thru quebec) with our 24 foot motorhome. I know more paving has gone on since then (but not from lab city to baie comeau). So we were leaving after 6 weeks in the month of June so no snow. The worst part is the road from lab city to Baie comeau. Fast moving trucks with a mission. We happened to hit it right and nothing was immediately hot on our tail (but a ways back was a BIG WIDE mobile housing/office unit heading south). We stopped in manic 5 for the night and I woke at 4am and nudge husband...LETS GO and we arrived in baie comeau without incident. What made the lab city to baie comeau difficult was that you couldn't go fast enough to let the suspension do the work because the road for the most part was ziggy zaggy weaving winding and it was not posssible to get up speed for those parts. That said there were some straight aways. When trucks came booking it we would just pull over to the side as far as safe and crawl...watching for soft gravel. It could be dusty on the unpaved roads...helpful if you have your rv sealed up as tight as possible. We did not get the satellite phone but didn't have problems either...would get it next time. There are not many places to pull off the road on the 380. Might want to carry bug spray/head bug net just in case you have to get out of rv to do repairs so you are no ones dinner. We arrived in NFL around 3 week of May and had it to ourselves...no reservations necessary to go over. But some things were not open (which we really didn't care about anyway). We also visited in 2016 but didn't include labrador vowing next time more would be paved. 2013 we did day ferry in calm sunny weather and back via labrador quebec. 2016 we used a night ferry and made a reservation the day we wanted to return (june with 5 days of rain predicted/had enough rain). We initially did not book a room thinking we could find a bench and lay down but there were none or they were occupied and they frowned on sleeping on the floor but people were on both. We immediately asked about a room and they didn't have any. About 1/2 hour later the desk person came and found me!!! to let me know there was a room if we still wanted it. YES, women don't sleep sitting up.

RE: New Brunswick – – – mid-October

We did an October trip years ago up thru vermont, into quebec and around gaspe' and down thru NB and home to NY...the weather held wonderfully for us. We poked along using our 24 foot class c as a roaming hotel and boondocking along the way. LOVED hopewell rocks.

RE: On demand water heater and boondocking

Hubs did some research on this and Truma ARE pricey and only installable by them/technician. We have decided and ordered an propane/electric standard rv hot water heater....maybe atwood. The one in our old Jayco worked well for us. Hubs will install it when it arrives and THEN we will try the new shower out. Thank you for all your input...confirming they don't belong in most rv's. It should be an option if someone really wants one not standard.
