  1. It is working now - the web host was having some kind of outage and is back up now.
  2. 5th wheel and truck are both still available. The RV has been taken to a local dealer in Rio Rancho, NM for consignment. Asking price lowered to $38,998 on the 5th wheel. Additional photos of the RV: https://sdf.org/~cwr/rv/ PM me for more info.
  3. Lowering the asking price to $42,000 for the 5th wheel and $45,000 for the truck. $82,000 for the package deal.
  4. We're selling our 2017 Grand Design 367 BHS 5th wheel and 2017 Ford F-350 Dual Rear Wheel Crew Cab truck. Ideally, we'd like to sell both at the same time, but we'll happily sell individually provided the 5th wheel is sold first. We're located in the Santa Fe / Albuquerque, New Mexico area. We've been full-timers since 2016, and we purchased these vehicles new (we're the original owners) in the fall of 2017. As a young family; however, we've found that it is time for us to settle down, so we're purchasing a sticks and bricks home in New Mexico and thus we're looking to sell our rig and tow vehicle. We're still living in the RV, but we're closing on the house on June 4th, so it should be available within a few weeks of that date. I'm just going to provide a quick overview here; if you are interested, please contact me privately and I can go over more details. We'll have more photos available after we get all our stuff out of the RV. 2017 F-350 6.7L Power Stroke Diesel Dual Rear Wheels, 4x4 Crew Cab, Long Bed 31,500 (approximate) miles Kept up to date with maintenance (oil changes, fuel filter) Still under 3 year/36,000 mile Ford warranty Overall fantastic condition, no accidents STX Appearance Package/FX4 Off-Road Package 360 degree back-up camera system, great for hooking up SYNC stereo system with USB/bluetooth inputs and Apple/Android phone connectivity for GPS, etc. Spray-in bedliner, soft/roll-up bed cover Custom seat covers Excellent running condition with no mechanical issues Pulls a 41' foot 5th wheel like a dream Exhaust/Engine brake makes a night-and-day difference when stopping a large rig Optional TrailerSaver BD3 air-ride 5th wheel hitch available 2017 Grand Design Reflection 367 BHS Never any roof leaks or water intrusion 2 air conditioners 4 slide-outs, super spacious, great pantry Auto-leveling jack system MORryde rubber pin box, reduces jerking while towing Always towed with a TrailerSaver BD3 air-ride hitch resulting in reduced stress on the trailer All systems functional Fireplace/electric heater 40-something inch HDTV included Splendide clothes Washer/Dryer installed and included Separate bedroom/office, great floorplan for full-timing families Rear couch replaced with large office desk Pricing We'd really love to sell the entire rig as a package deal, truck and trailer together. $90,000 $82,000 for both, which includes the TrailerSaver BD3 hitch (about a $3,000 value). However, if there is no interest in a combo deal, we will sell them separately so long as we can sell the 5th wheel first. Separately, we're asking $48,000 $42,000 for the trailer $48,000 $45,000 for the truck without the hitch, $50,000 $46,000 if you want the hitch. Please send me a private message if you are interested and I'll provide further contact details. Thanks for looking!
  5. Thank you all for the replies. Yes, we operate a business selling items at various events; we carry the inventory in the box truck. I tried calling Miller already, but they said they'd only help me if I also move my 5th wheel and tow vehicle policy over to them, which I do not want to do. They typically use Progressive (which is the company that is dropping us) and National General, which I already spoke with directly and they said they also would not cover us. FL-JOE, I agree, surely we can't be the only nomadic business out there. Insurance is such a hassle. But as soon as I explain that we travel full time and the truck is not parked in the same place for more than a few months (at most), they say they can't write the policy. I will try calling FCIS...
  6. All, I have a very specific insurance situation I need help with. We're full-timers with a business that's legally set up in South Dakota. Our business owns a small box truck that travels with us (wife drives it, while I drive the RV). It is registered in South Dakota. Our current insurance company is dropping us because we're nomadic. They want it to be parked in the same place every night. I'm finding this is the case with everyone I call. Can anyone offer any suggestions of a carrier that would be willing to insure us? It needs to be commercial since the truck is registered to the business. Thanks!
  7. Thanks for all the input. Seems like most have mail sent via Priority Mail or FedEx. I suppose this is what I should consider doing, as the stress of wondering if my mail will show up before we leave an area is becoming too burdensome.
  8. We use the Escapees Mail Service for our personal mail. The past few months, it seems like it takes our mail an exceptionally long time to reach its destination. Our mail is usually forwarded via First Class (large envelope). By comparison, we utilize America's Mailbox in South Dakota for our business mail. Lately, no matter where we are, we always get the mail from South Dakota more quickly than our mail from Texas. I will list a few recent examples: Livingston, Texas to northern Florida -- 14 days from Escapees (first class) Box Elder, South Dakota to same location in northern Florida - 3 days from America's Mailbox (first class) Livingston, Texas to Lewisville, Texas -- 7 days from Escapee's (first class) Box Elder South Dakota to same location in Lewisville, Texas -- 4 days from America's Mailbox (first class) Livingston, Texas to northern Virginia - 8+ days (still waiting!) for Escapees mail to arrive (first class) Box Elder, South Dakota to same location in northern Virginia - 3 days from America's Mailbox (first class) I am not writing to complain about the Escapees Mail Service itself; I suspect if there is a problem anywhere, it is most likely with the USPS facilities in the Livingston, TX area, but I was simply curious if others have noticed that it takes a LONG time for their mail from Livingston to show up. Almost any first class mail I get from anywhere but Livingston takes anywhere from 1-4 days to arrive, but lately its almost a guaranteed 7-14 days if its coming from Livingston.
  9. For what its worth, I just "chatted" with Florida Blue's support via their website. I asked, "I travel outside of the state quite frequently. Do the BlueSelect and BlueChoice plans have access to the BlueCard nationwide network?" The agent responded - "Yes, same BlueCard nationwide network for both, BlueChoice has a bigger network within Florida."
  10. While I'm glad to see the club is making an effort to help ... as a soon-to-be self-employed, full-time RVer in my 30s with a wife and child... this new offering is, well... a bit disappointing.
  11. Lowering my asking price from $14,900 to a no-haggle price of $13,000! Need to sell this unit ASAP! Thanks!
  12. Sorry, been operating on a severe lack of sleep the past week. It is in fact a 2017 model, but we purchased it in 2016. Sorry for the confusion.
  13. You're right; purchased in 2016, but it is a 2017 model.
  14. We purchased this RV new in July, 2016. We bought it to try the RV lifestyle after we sold our house. We ended up living in it for about a year, and decided we liked the lifestyle enough to upgrade to something a little roomier. Now that we have our new 5th wheel trailer, we need to sell this 2017 Prowler, which is in very good condition.This trailer has been towed no more than 200 miles. We purchased it from the dealer, towed it to a campground, and then towed it to another campground in the same town. Almost no wear and tear from travel!- Interior kept very clean- Power tongue jack- All systems function- Added two wall-mounted electric heaters; included- Added three TV wall mounts; included (TVs are not included)- Replaced common exterior storage compartment locks with high-security Medeco locks- Includes ultra-high security hitch lock by AMP Lock- Includes Flush King tank flushing attachment- Includes E2 weight-distributing/stabilizing hitch/sway control system- Bunkhouse- Sleeps 7-8 comfortablyBasic specs:- Just under 34 feet long- GVWR 9,000 LBS- Dry weight 6,672 LBSFor information on the included hitch, see: http://www.fastwaytrailer.com/e2-hitchThe manufacture's website is located at: https://www.heartlandrvs.com/brands/travel/prowler-lynx/prowler-lynx-30-lxA complete photo gallery is available at: https://imgur.com/a/3zCI7Located in Front Royal, VA.Lowering the asking price from $14,900 to a no-haggle price of $13,000!
  15. I actually called Progressive first. The rep I spoke with was borderline rude and obviously in a hurry to get me off the phone. My question was simple, what is the tolerance of the voltage sensor in the EMS units? Like anything else, I can only assume that they are only accurate within a certain threshold. I asked if they could be calibrated. He didn't want to hear any of it, and simply told me its a problem with the campground. Not too impressed with Progressive so far. My unit is brand new, so hopefully its OK. I'm going to do some research and upgrade my El Cheapo multimeter to something that can be calibrated by a certified shop. Also, for a lot of campers, it would seem. As I walked the park, it seems I'm probably the only one that has an EMS.
