We Need a Tesla Forum!

01 May 2015 - 08:45 AM

Awhile back there were calls for forums dedicated to RV types – Class A, Travel Trailer, etc.  Let’s start a movement -- a groundswell of grass roots support -- for a forum dedicated to........... TESLA!  In one week, Derek could post more to it than has been posted to all of the RV-type forums since their inception.


But wait – an even bigger idea.  We should have an Elon Musk Section of the Forums.  Then we could have forums dedicated to all things Musk:


Tesla Motors Forum (and we could sub forum it into Model S, Model X, Stock Price, etc)


Solar City Forum


Space X Forum


Giga Factory Forum (but that could cause confusion with the Tesla Motors Forum; we wouldn't want to have members torn about whether to make their battery posts in the Telsa Motors Forum or the Giga Factory Forum)


Hpyerloop Forum


The Next Big Thing Forum


Rumors About Elon Musk’s Personal Life Forum (after all the National Enquirer reported on Melanie Griffith’s alleged desire to woo Elon)


Elon Musk Sightings Forum (there could be more reported than for Elvis)


Elon Musk Worship Forum (no cults now, just effusive praise and tribute)


Elon Musk For President Forum (Oops, he was born in South Africa, but we could use our Musk Forums to call for an amendment to the Constitution to enable his candidacy).  Contributions to the campaign, of course, would have to be made through PayPal.


So lend your support to this movement.  Let’s make this call for Musk Forums so loud and overwhelming that the Forum Moderators have no choice but to adopt it.


And if anyone did not realize it, my tongue was thoroughly planted in my cheek throughout the writing this post.  :D   The devil made me do it, Derek.

Markups on Park Models

07 March 2015 - 10:17 AM

Are the markups (discount from selling price) the same on new park models (the home type park models rather than the travel trailer types) as for other RVs -- around the 25 to 30% range?

Texas Sales Tax on RV Trades

25 February 2015 - 12:27 PM

On an RV trade in, does Texas charge sales tax on the full amount of the RV being purchased or on the difference in value of the new one less the old one?


If it is based on the difference, does anyone know how closely the buy and sell have to be linked?  Do they truly have to occur in the same place on the same day or can you sell in one place and some days later (and how many) buy at another place and still only be charged sales tax on the difference?

Not a recipe, but being a native Hoosier the following article about the best 10 places to get a Breaded Pork Tenderloin Sandwich sure brought a watering of the mouth.   http://www.seriousea...es-midwest.html
