  1. There are two 2011 Volvo 730s with Smart Car beds for sale at Kansas RV Ctr. These units are on consignment so I would think that some price negotiations are in order.
  2. There are Two 2011 Volvo 730 already converted with Smart Car beds on them for sale at Kansas RV Ctr. These are consignment units so I would think there is room for negotiations.
  3. SD does not have a special class drivers license for private RV Mortorhome operation unless something has changed in the last few months.
  4. While you are in MO/Kansas area you should check out RVH who builds RV HDT's in Kansas. They can single and convert (2 different activities) your HDT or source one for you, build beds and boxes, etc.
  5. My opinion is that getting minerals and vitamins naturally is always better than via supplements. Studies continue to show how we know little about how nutrition is absorbed by our bodies so why not hedge a little and eat and drink the real thing? We use a Berkey (1-2 gal size) which fits easily by our sink and provides all our drinking and cooking water needs. The reason it is so efficient at filtering out the bad and keeping the good mineral is due 1. to its proprietary filter media design, and 2. it filters slowly using gravity only. This allows the media to do its job and for the transfer of good minerals (no heavy metals). The bacteria, for example is captured by the media and trapped. Minerals dissolve and move through the media over time. We also have the additional Fluoride and Arsenic filters. To dissolve minerals into water takes time which is why the "re-mineralization" filters offered for RO systems operating inline under pressure don't do a good job of putting healthy minerals back into the purified water supply, although they can positively affect on PH and taste.
  6. My research indicates that the IRS must approve all non FET purchase request by a buyer of a new truck. The purchaser must provide the dealer the IRS approval control number to legitimately eliminate the FET. The request can be made by a company or individual directly with the IRS via form 637, although I have not found anyone who has successfully completed this process yet.
  7. We put our SC in Park and set the hand brake. Never have had a alarm problem yet. By putting it in park and locking the doors it latches close the fuel cap cover so it won't get sucked off from the draft while driving the HDT. I don't see how the trans would be effected if it strapped down well.
  8. We came across Wolf Creek pass on 160 last week and are staying in Pagosa Springs. W160 is a well traveled and maintained road. You'll have no problem with it. State Patol was working the pass heavily when we came through. We had to stop at a mandatory check point for rigs over 10K but they said have a safe trip after they learned we were private. Didn't check any paperwork, just ask questions about how we operate. Enjoy the trip out here and call if you need anything. We r here through July and August. Here is a video intro of the area.

    HDT Buying Guide

    Take a look at RVhaulers.ca, Greg will help you through the process.
  13. Usually Gregg already has the Volvo titled as a MH in Alberta CA so you will be going through the import process of a MH only. This is what we did in May and I got a copy of the actual DMV importation checklist. I sent it to Gregg for future reference. We did our registration in Sioux Falls with no issues.
  14. Glad you guys finally found your way out of hot OK. safe travels, Marc
