    What brand?

    You will note that in the original post I said that the condition of the specific coach had to be taken into consideration. Obviously a wrecked Prevost sitting in a junk yard wouldn't be preferred over a lower end coach in excellent condition (at that point it would be reasonable to simply keep shopping).

    Thousand Trails Zone Pass

    I've been in over 30 Thousand Trails over the past few years and had FHU it all but 6-7 of them. However, all of those that were water/electric only were in the northwest. Also, in some places I got FHU but it was the luck of the draw - arriving at a time when there were some FHU sites available. We've also been in some places where we didn't have 50 amps, and, again, that was more often in the western US. Spend time on rvparkreviews.com looking at the parks you think would fit your travel plans. You can see what amenities, etc. are available and also read the opinions of people who stayed there. Then, balance out the reviews with the cost savings to decide if the zone pass will work for you.

    What brand?

    Just a bit of looking around - for my budget it looks like I could get a 1999-2001 Foretavel for about what a 2004-07 TIffin or Numar would cost. Similar mileage. Are you of the opinion that the Foretavel would be the better choice?

    Thousand Trails Zone Pass

    Just for fun I tried booking two southern California Thousand Trails properties - Pio Pico and Palm Springs for one month from today. Pio Pico had sites available and Palm Springs did not. So far as Trail Collection, everyone is in the same boat with them so your chances of getting a spot are as good as even those with the highest level of memberships. If you are good with the quality of the properties and don't intend to travel beyond the zone, I'd say the ZP is at least a good starting point for you.

    Thanks for the input - it is good hearing from people who have first hand knowledge. When I ask a question like this I always specifically ask people "what they would do" because no one can speak to what I should do.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    Thanks Cherie! Good to know. Ron, I think I'm okay with Verizon at this time. I'm running the phone without a sim, making and receiving calls via WiFi. I just put the Jetpack in my pocket. It is just for the time being, to be sure the Jetpack setup works okay. I may get a cheapo cell plan for the phone.

    What brand?

    We are just thinking about this and would appreciate input from this group. Understanding the the condition of the specific unit has to be taken into consideration, if you were going to buy a 10-12 year old DP motorhome for fulltime use what brands/models would you focus on? Or, from the reverse, what ones would you stay away from?

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    Cherie I'm relying on information from your website that putting my grandfathered unlimited plan sim in a Jetpack isn't going to get me into trouble with Verizon. Do you still think that is acceptable with Verizon? Thanks.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    At this time I'm going to stay with my old grandfathered unlimited plan. I see three concerns: 1. The new plan can be changed at any time - there is no contract - and Verizon has a history of floating new stuff and then quickly adjusting based on customer response. If I give up my old plan I can never get it back. 2. There is some differences in roaming coverage between a contract plan and a prepaid one. Not much, mind you, but traveling as we do there are many times when we end up off the beaten track - exactly the kind of places where roaming kicks in. 3. My old plan isn't subject to being relegated to a lower priority on busy cell towers, the prepaid plans are. It may never be an issue, but we've been in some places where our data slowed down on busy weekends - likely a result of several users loading down the local tower. So, while I'm going to keep an eye on developments, I don't think I will be an early adapter here.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    Not sure I follow. Get the prepaid account for the Jetpack, pay $65 a month.. Then go to a two line, 3Gig plan for $60. That's $125 a month.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    Intetesting...right now I'm running an old unlimited grandfathered sim in a jetpack because tethering to the phone is hard on the phone. I'd save money by giving up the grandfathered plan.

    Questions about Dish TV

    I'm not pretending Dish is following it's own guidelines. Any of us who have dealt with them on a regular basis have gotten conflicting information on various topics. I am saying that the quote from the webpage was given as the reason that the app doesn't work for me. I've made it a point to bring it up on a regular basis, including with an upper level tech support guy.

    How often do you make reservations?

    Do you think it might be the result of different travel styles. I don't think it would be especially hard to just show up at a campground looking for a night or two, or being willing to change sites after a night to a different spot. The challenge would be just showing up and wanting a two week stay. So, people who move frequently would be more likely to report "no reservations-no problem." Those who do weekly or monthly stays would more likely report that reservations are important.

    Questions about Dish TV

    I see that we are defining "home equipment" differently. You see it as "having equipment at home." I've been seeing it as "having equipment designed for home and not for a RV" (like a Wally). The reason I was told I couldn't change my locals is because I have a VIP722K - which, by the way, I sure wouldn't trade for a Wally.

    Questions about Dish TV

    Two parts, according to Dish: not only Dish Outdoors but mobile equipment also. Here's where I found the information: https://www.mydish.com/support/dishoutdoors
