    Hang in there B5er, April 26 is right around the corner. For me it is six Saturdays and Sunday. When you retire you will be so busy you'll wonder how you had time to work.

    Is Big5er enjoying his retirement now?
  3. We always camped at the Imperial Dam Long Term Visitor area. Mucho room for any size rig and very reasonable rates. Water and sewage dump near the headquarters. $40.00 for two weeks and $180 for 7 months. This is dry camping and lots of places to ride. https://www.blm.gov/visit/imperial-dam-long-term-visitor-area https://www.google.com/maps/place/Imperial+Dam+Long+Term+Visitor+Area/@32.8896238,-114.5329599,13z/data=!4m8!1m2!2m1!1sblm+camping+yuma+az!3m4!1s0x80d692f2cf596413:0xb5233d9d2f781950!8m2!3d32.9011677!4d-114.4946723
  4. The Panama Canal is a must! If you enjoy engineering it's a must see. And to know that this was built over 100 years ago. We have made two complete passages and will do a partial (into Lake Gatun) and turn around this coming March. Do it! Gary D

    Should not have used the word "scam". Thanks for the definition of "scam".

    Hmmm, sounds like a real scam. How long does this go on without him being investigated?

    I know some on this forum have been following Elio Motors and may have even put down a deposit. All I read on their web page blog is "puff" pieces, no real info on getting into production. Are they getting any closer to production?
  8. About 8 years ago we stayed at Lake Pleasant RV Park in Bothell, WA with our 37' rig you see in our avatar. We stayed for a couple of nights then parked our rig in their storage lot while we went on an Alaska Cruise. They had 15 amps in the storage lot, but someone unplugged our cord and we lost all that was in the fridge. Other than that problem it is a very nice park in a safe neighborhood. Have stayed there many times visiting our children in the area. I don't know the length of your rig, but you might want to give them a call to see if they can accommodate you.
  9. Wonder what the price is (super expensive I would imagine) and can it be retrofitted? https://www.allisontransmission.com/company/news-article/!details/2018/06/15/navistar-to-offer-allison-transmissions-with-cummins-x15-engine-for-international-lt-series-and-rh-series-trucks
  10. From your thread title "Jack Stands Under the Bed?" you had me wondering. Did you gain too much weight and you needed supports under the bed in your sleeper cab? Sorry, couldn't resist😀
  11. Sounds like you are getting her on board and into the bunk as well! Sure hope you didn't put gas in your diesel tank, that is a no-no! Lumpers are guys who unload trucks and Swampers is the Canadian equivalent.
  12. How much is the government subsidizing each truck with taxpayer money? Is this subsidy still going on with EV's? With more and more EV's on the road, how are they paying their share of road taxes? https://www.newsmax.com/finance/streettalk/pepsico-tesla-electric-trucks/2017/12/12/id/831238/

  14. As we age and are entering a new chapter in our lives it is time to sell. She has been an excellent motorhome for us; dependable and comfortable as we traveled in our music ministry. http://www.thegooddeeds.com/ We specified the requirements for the Freightliner FL70 truck and purchased it new. Transport Designs, Inc. in Montoursville, PA built the Truck Conversion. This motorhome has served us well as we traveled widely, spending 5-6 months on the road each year. She is a "drivers" vehicle. I say this as she has a fully synchromesh manual transmission, allowing you to pick the proper gear for the situation. The rig was designed using the KIS (keep it simple) principle for reliability. There are no slide-outs, but she is 102" wide providing plenty of living space for two people. Her length is 36'- 9" including the truck cab. Everything was designed and built with practicality in mind looking toward durability and simplicity. Quality materials and appliances were chosen. As of September 2017 the total mileage is 132,200 miles. Caterpillar 3126b engine 300 HP/860 lb.ft.Torque Eaton-Fuller 6 speed overdrive fully synchromesh manual transmission. The Truck Conversion is located in San Luis Obispo County, California and is registered in California as a "Motorhome". California does not require a special drivers license as the GVWR is 26,000 lb. Selling Price is $52,000.00 (reduced price) Specifications for the truck and conversion can be seen at: http://ustruckin.blogspot.com/ Pictures of the Truck Conversion can be seen at: http://ustruckinpictures.blogspot.com/2016/05/blog-post_2.html I may be reached at garydeeds@gmail.com
