  1. Hey Everyone, We will be visiting the Thousand Island/St. Lawrence River region this June for 6+ weeks. We're looking for your recommendations for campgrounds to stay at, neats towns to check out, sightseeing and cool activities such as white water rafting. Since Ontario is just across the river, please offer any suggestions there to. Thanks for your help!
  2. Hello everyone, Peter and Therese, joining Class of 2019! Just a little about us. We full-timed about 12 years ago for roughly 7 months in our travel trailer. We traveled mostly National Parks and State parks from the east coast to the west coast to the south. Awesome experience! We caught the RV bug then. Fast forward to early 2018, we purchased a new Montana 5th wheel and a used Ford F350 dually truck. This past summer was filled with weekend trips and a 2-week trek around finger lakes NY and western NY area to test/shakedown and get used to our new rig ready for our new adventures. Therese left her job last May to help with aging parents. My last day at work is 3/1. Yesss! We've signed up as "first timers" for the Escapade in Tuscon. If you are going, send us a PM to let us know. We can't wait. We also decided, what the heck, to check out Moab, UT for an Xscapers event in April. Where to next from there, not sure but I'm it will be an experience. We are glad to be joining the RV community once again. This website, blogs and others have offered their advice and past experiences which have been very helpful to us. We thank all of you. Peter & Therese
  3. Greetings, Has anyone replaced the "coroplast" underbelly with a better material? The Coroplast is cheap and flimsy and won't last very long. I need to investigate a hydraulic line leak in a leveler jack so its time to look at a better underbelly material. All thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Hi, We are picking up our new 5th wheel in 2 weeks. Would appreciate possible recommendations on the type of insurance coverage and companies in the RV insurance industry we may call for a quote. We don't want this insurance as an extension of our auto policy. Thank you!
  5. Kirk, good point about the RV mobile service tech, I'll consider this. Pappy, I'll be driving the same distance to pick up the rig. I read a lot about poor quality control at the manufacturer, so would like to try and be sure, items I may not pick-up during PDI that another set of eyes can help catch. Especially someone that works on RV's every day and is familiar with potential issues.
  6. Hello everyone, Our 5th wheel is in production and it's expected delivery to the dealership in early May. I was thinking of hiring a 3rd party RV inspector to assist during the pre-delivery inspection at the dealership. Has anyone done this? If so, possible recommendations for RV inspection company? Dealership west coast FL. Thanks for your input.
  7. Thanks for everyone's feedback. Merry Christmas to all!
  8. We've seen a great variation in price too. Thanks, great points and food for thought.
  9. Hello all, I'm sure this topic has been brought up before and appreciate your opinions - I'll be ordering a 5th wheel thru a dealer sometime this Spring. I've recieved a few quotes from dealers and more coming. Wide range of pricing based on same order sheet. Any suggestions for negotiating with sales? What should you expect discount off MSRP?
  10. Greetings to all, Narrowing down our 5th wheel choices for full timing next fall to forest river cedar creek 34RE hathaway and the keystone montana 3560RL (new 2018 model) legacy edition. We like them both for their size, floorplan, standards and add-in options. Anyone out there who might own these models that would share their pros and cons? Which manufacturer provides better durability, longevity, and resale value? Thanks for your thoughts.
  11. Hi everyone, What are the pros and cons of full body paint exterior? Is it worth the additional $$ or just stay with the factory gel coat. Your thoughts and experiences are appreciated.
  12. Researching information on domicile states (FL, TX, SD) and leaning towards South Dakota. Any feedback either positive or negative would be helpful in our decision. Thanks.
