    2 humans & 3 pups preparing for the road

    Hi All, We have greatly enjoyed reading all the posts and appreciate all the wonderful advice from the members. We are 2 humans with 3 not-so-small dogs preparing to take it on the road. We have been going to shows, researching and preparing financially for about 5 years. We were unsure if we wanted Class A or 5er. We have decided on the Road Warrior 420 for several reasons. Since we do have the dogs we see the garage as a type of mud room coming in from the weather. Also as an office and entertaining spot. We know due to size of lots we will not always be able to let the side deck down. We currently live west of Atlanta and have hopes to travel across the country again to the great PNW, making that our likely landing spot! Our current community has a fairly high volume of crime and terrible summers. A few questions we have for the group: Have you felt safe in the camp grounds? If you have a toy hauler and use the patio, do you close your deck when you leave or at night? As far as the dogs go, we have read many restrictions regarding dogs. Ours weigh from 45 lbs to 80 lbs. Have any of you experienced dog prejudice and if so how did you handle it? We are hitting a show this weekend but if anyone has any leads for someone looking to sell their 420 or the combo of 420 and truck, we would appreciate those. Thanks in advance. I know my first couple of questions to the group don't seem that big but I have read through a lot of good advice you guys have already given. Jones & Pups

    RV buyer advice

    If you’re about to spend thousands of $$$ for a NEW RV, you may want to read this. I can’t go RV’ing because my 2014 HEARTLAND Wilderness leaks grey water all over the ground. I bought it NEW from CAMPING WORLD and have made 6 attempts to get the problem fixed, 4 of those attempts resulted in repairs being made, which have all failed. Two different RV shops refused to even attempt a repair. Camping World (multiple locations) keeps putting a band-aid on a fracture. The most recent of those 4 repairs they didn’t even connect the threaded coupling under the shower. Camping World only does repairs that Heartland will allow/approve. I have been fighting this battle with CW and HL for over a year now and it seems I have lost. “”As previously noted, CWRV Sales sold the RV “AS IS” and excluded from the sale all express or implied warranties, including the implied warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose.””---David Partin, Camping World RV Sales. “Additional components which have been installed in the recreational vehicle, including but not limited to microwave ovens, ranges, refrigerators, leveling jacks, furnaces/heaters, generators, power converters, batteries, and other items not specifically manufactured by Heartland RV, LCC, are warranted by the component manufacturers as detailed in their individual manufacturers warranties, and are not covered by this Limited Warranty”--- excerpt from my Heartland owner’s manual. So between the two above “disclaimers” good luck getting your Camping World/Heartland RV repaired correctly under warranty. My warranty has now expired, while sitting at a Camping World location awaiting repairs, after having spent almost half its life in repair shops. Do your research, make your own decision and good luck RV’ing. Beware…Heartland makes, and Camping World sells a lot of brands. Items that have fallen off, broken, or failed: spare tire cover, holding tank drain cap, holding tank T-handle, TV mounting screws, rear bumper end cap, oven wouldn’t stay lit, exit door threshold, stabilizer mounting screws, shore power coupling mounting screws, kitchen sink drain plumbing, bathroom sink drain plumbing, external propane coupling, water heater wiring bundle, kitchen drawer, main entry door, main entry screen door, mattress collapsed, TV cable connector, shower faucet valves(both), SHOWER DRAIN PLUMBING LEAK, slide out leak while traveling. Oh yeah, it was still winterized upon delivery(no warning sticker) and the tires weren’t even aired up. If I only count 1 item failing per trip, then my brand new travel trailer has had a 100% failure rate. If this sounds like sour grapes, it is, because I have a brand new, at time of purchase, $20,000 RV that I can’t use and can’t get fixed. Thanks CAMPING WORLD and HEARTLAND for putting an expensive and disheartening impediment to my retirement. This entire process does have its humorous side. Someone from CW corp. “web response team” called and said, “we understand you are having some issues with your Mallard. I would like to address these issues about your MALLARD.” I have a Wilderness.

Doug Chaney (nine one six)-801-4777 dchaney at passportamerica.com My wife and I used the trailer for full-timing for 2 1/2 years and it was very comfortable for us. We bought the trailer new from LaMesa RV in Mesa, AZ in March of 2012, trading in a 2010 Grand Canyon. This is a Mesa floor plan. You are in the kitchen when you enter the trailer. The sink is in the slide out directly opposite the entry door and has a window behind it. There is an island that has shelves in it and has a solid uincluttered top. We did not use the oven in the Grand Canyon, so we opted to just have a cooktop and a microwave/convection oven. There is a lot of storage space in the kitchen, including a roll-out pantry shelf. The dining area includes a table and two chairs. There are two folding chairs that go with the set as well. The living room area is at the rear. There is room for a 7 foot sofa under the rear window. The 42" TV retracts into a cabinet on the off-door side near the rear. There is room opposite for a pair of recliners or theater seats, that faces the TV cabinet. It has a stereo CD/DVD player in rhe cabinet abover the TV. The bathroom is up 3 steps from the kitchen and cab be closed off with a sliding pocket door. It has a separate small room with the commode. The shower and bathroom sink are on the off-dfoor side. Opposite them and next to the commode room is a closet that is plumbed for a washer/dryer combo. The bedroom is at the front It can be separated from the bath area by a two piece sliding door. There is a king-size bed and a dresser, with a 32" TV above the dresser.There's a closet at the nose of the trailer that is about 2/3 of the width. Next to the closet is a cupboard that has shelves and a small dresser in it. The trailer has a central vacuum system. The refrigerator is a 4-door model (14.4 cubic feet, I think) and has an ice-maker.
