  1. Now settled back into a sticks and bricks with our 5th wheel and hitch sold, we're looking to sell our 2017 F-350 DRW. It currently has just under 33,000 miles on it, and it is in fantastic condition. Located in Rio Rancho, NM, just outside of Albuquerque. Photos available at: http://cwr.sdf.org/F350/ Just like CarMax, this is a no-haggle sale (though you won't find a deal this good there!). Price is firm at $45,000. This truck is in excellent condition, and is still under warranty for another 3,000 miles. It is nicely equipped with 4x4, 5th wheel hitch prep, 360-degree camera system, Bluetooth/USB audio, blindspot alerts, etc. Custom seat covers installed since day one. Original owners, no accidents, clean history report (VIN available upon request), well cared for. Please send me a private message for more details if you're interested.
  2. 5th Wheel has been sold, F-350 is still for sale!
  3. For sale is our TrailerSaver (Hensley Manufacturing) Air Ride 5th Wheel Hitch with Ford underbed ("puck") adapter. Original owners and purchased brand new in 2017 when we set out to be full-time RVers. We've gotten that out of our system and have settled down into a house and sold the RV, so we no longer need the hitch. This hitch is truly amazing. Because its an air ride, the wear and tear on your trailer and truck is GREATLY reduced. Makes for such a smooth ride. It really helps protect your "stuff" inside the trailer, too - we've left drinks on the counter a few times and they were still in the same spot when we arrived at our destination. Hitch has been taken care of and protected from the elements as much as possible (we always keep it covered with the truck bed cover when not in use). Has about 10,000 towing miles on it - just getting broken in! In very good, fully-functional condition. If you have a newer Ford with the 5th wheel prep, the included adapter makes installing this hitch a breeze - it's basically plug and play. For complete specs on the hitch, see: http://www.trailersaver.com/product/bd3-air-ride-5th-wheel-hitch/ For more info on the Ford bed adapter, see: http://www.trailersaver.com/product/ford-underbed-adapter/ Brand new, this setup cost me $2,915 (original invoice available). Asking price is nearly half that at only $1,500. Includes some spare parts such as an extra air pillow. Located in Rio Rancho, NM (Albuquerque/Santa Fe metro area)
  4. [edit: removed photos of sold RV]
  5. RV has been sold, truck still available.
  6. Lowering the asking price to $42,000 for the 5th wheel and $45,000 for the truck. $82,000 for the package deal.

We've been full-timers since 2016, and we purchased these vehicles new (we're the original owners) in the fall of 2017.

  8. 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...
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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."
  13. 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.
  14. Lowering my asking price from $14,900 to a no-haggle price of $13,000! Need to sell this unit ASAP! Thanks!
  15. 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.
