  1. $51,000 negotiable - selling due to not having time to use. Immaculate hardly used, like New! - pet and shoe free rv. Bought 2016 Spring (when 2017 models were coming out) new from RV dealer. This rv has been stored inside during Winter. Rv has gone less than 300 miles from our house and used less than 5 times. We are selling due to not having time to use, this is a wonderful rv. Has the JAVA decor, comes with a extended warranty too. We have never had any issues, everything works great! Has the RV refrigerator also - #1 on our want list. Televisions are included also, pictures are from when we picked up at dealer. We haven't made any modifications either.

  2. Looking for some first-hand experience/technical advice on improving drivability on my new motor home. We have a brand new, 2018 Thor Four Winds 24F, Class C motor home (25 foot length) on a 2017 Ford e350 chassis that still has paper tags! (I just sold an older 38' diesel pusher and purchased this unit new within the past month.) The old DP had me spoiled on how it handled on the interstate - no 18 wheeler push-pull when they blow past and very little wind issues of any kind. Now I fully understand the e350 chassis will never match the DP with its air ride and massive weight differential and spartan chassis, but I would like to see what steps I can take to improve the ride stability, drivability and driver effort requirement on the e350 with a shorter rv. I've put about 1500 or so miles on the new unit and the 18 wheeler blow-by is rather intense! I have done some research (googling and in other groups) and here's what I've come up with: 1. Check 4-corner weight and rebalance after loading up 2. Get a "road loaded" front end alignment after rebalancing 3. Consider installing aftermarket front and rear sway bars. Anyone have any experience with any/some/all of the above or have other suggestions? I think the first two items - rebalancing and re-aligning make sense, but I'm not very familiar with sway bars. Any input/advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks! TJP

  4. Hello, I am new to this forum -and also not yet an RV'er- but I am seconds away from listing my house, and buying an RV, and hitting the road. I am in the investigation stage now and ran across this wonderfully helpful website. I have way too many questions to list, and will continue to get many of them answered by reading what's already been written, but I do have a few concerns since I am entering the unknown. I'll tell you a little about me and you tell me what you think... First of all it will be me by myself. I am used to being alone, but not out on the road. I got my class A license, a couple of years ago, but never took a job as a trucker (an intimidating role for a small female). I have been living alone for years and don't really see the difference (house vs RV) -unless there is something that I am not thinking of... as far as aloneness goes. At first I will cut my teeth on the western states, visiting family. I'm in Ca, I have a kid/fam in Texas, a kid/fam in Az, kid/fam in Ca and fam in Or and Wa that I will want to make my rounds to first. Then after I see how that goes I will likely venture out towards the East. I have never camped in an RV- always tents, and it's been a few years. I love to drive and I want to travel and see things I haven't seen yet (I can't move my house to do this). I recently left my job (sick of the grind) and will use my equity to purchase my RV (I guess start out used/cheap in case I hate it for some reason??)... and live on it for awhile, while planning to find some sort of income online. What is a suggested "nest egg" for a very frugal, conservative spender...? I have a 5lb dog, a canary, and a 12lb, outside, semi-ferrel, 6 year old cat who hates cars- I cannot abandon him and am hoping to figure out something great for him or take him (??!!)...ugh. I've re-homed cats in the past and they seem to go a little crazy. I guess the bottom line is that I am looking for a "trigger" that will either make or break my decision to sell my house (which I think is a good idea anyway because of the market), and then I need a place to live. Not the time to buy a house and not excited at the thought of renting. I'd like to get out of this jobless area I'm in and just go. I love nature, camping, etc. Well thank you for listening and I really appreciate this website/forum as it is going to be an incredibly useful tool for me. I'd also like more info on the bootcamp please:) Roni

  6. Hello, My husband and I are in the process of purchasing our first RV to live in full time. Is there any advice that you may have or are willing to give to a couple like ourselves? What to do and what not to do? We have chosen our RV already, just waiting on our house to be put on the market before we can actually purchase. If you have any questions about the situation, let me know. I want all the information I can get and need to know. Thanks!

  10. Hi, I wanted to say hello to the group here and introduce myself. I will tell you a little about my current situation and future plans and I look forward to sharing and learning from others here. I ultimately decided on a full size 2500 Sprinter with the tall roof for my mobile abode. This gives me 12 feet of living space by 6 feet wide and plenty of head room (about 6'8"). I just turned 50 and all of my kids are grown. I figured now is the time to make this leap while I can and hopefully be afforded many good years ahead. I have had a younger sister and older brother pass away in the last few years and their passing made me realize how important it is to follow your heart and dreams. I enjoy hiking and exploring and I have been traveling to various places for extended periods of time in a previous Sprinter for years. I knew deep in my gut that I no longer wanted all of the things that came along with owning a house and so I bought a new Sprinter at the end of last year knowing that I wanted a vehicle that would last a long time. I have been taking my time and customizing it for my needs and taking trips for a couple weeks at a time. My goal is to sell my home in the prime market next Spring and move to full time status at that time. So, I want to be fully ready and able to start my journey at that time. I am fortunate that I live in an area that is desirable and homes typically sell in less than 60 days at most. I am in the process of working one room at a time (selling, donating, throwing away as appropriate). I feel on track with this and it feels good shedding all of these "things". My approach for RV'ing full time is pretty basic. I am perfectly happy in wilderness with the ability to get to a small town for supplies, a hot shower, and laundry as needed. I know that good rest and eating well is very important. I have built a custom bed in my Sprinter that has a lot of storage place under it. I have a small lazy boy recliner and a desk for working. That is about the extent of my customizations. Everything is stored in Rubbermaid organizers and inventoried so I know where things are when I need them. I have an auxiliary battery setup in the sprinter to run my small refrigerator full time and I also built a 12V deep cycle battery bank that is recharged via solar. I like to have a fan to keep air moving around when it is a little warmer and I need good clean A/C power for my computer equipment. I like to watch a good movie on DVD once in a while too. Next Steps: I am going on this journey alone, hoping at some point to meet someone that wants to live the same way. I am a little concerned about when things like the flu bug comes up, but I am not going to let these types of thoughts hold me back. I am sure I will develop a network of friends over time. I need to get my domicile plan finalized and work through the details associated with needing a physical mailing address. Any tips or advice on the typical places (SD, FL, TX) is welcomed. I need to figure out a better solution for fresh water. Any tips, products or ideas would be appreciated. I don't want or need running water, just access to it for all of life's basics (cleaning, cooking, drinking, etc.). My current solution is four 5 gallon jerry cans which is not going to work long term. I envision a water tank that holds maybe 20 to 30 gallons that has a hose where I can dispense the water into containers, bottles, etc. My initial plan is to follow the fair weather. I don't like extreme temperatures, so one of the benefits of being mobile is to move to a location with better weather. My ideal temperature range is 35 to 75. I plan to start out my journey spending June through September next year exploring the Rocky Mountains, Grand Tetons, Yellowstone and Glacier national parks. Then when winter comes early in this area, I need to head south or southwest. My preference at this point is an area like Moab, Arches National, etc. I am open to ideas and tips for these areas. I am looking for advice here from the group about the viability of RV parks and campgrounds around the areas I mentioned. Since my Sprinter is only 21 feet long, I really don't have any size restrictions. But I do need access to quality WiFi for uploading fairly large files and other remote work related requirements on a somewhat regular basis. If you have made it this far, I appreciate your time and I look forward to learning from the group here and also helping others as well. Greetings and I look forward to your response. Tim
  11. Hi, I am new to RVing, but my wife and I (and 3 dogs & 3 cats) are jumping off the deep end, selling our house and moving into full-timing. We have talked to RVers, read about 25 books and many articles, but are still innocents abroad. After 2 years unsuccessfully looking, I finally decided to forget the job market (very poor at my age) and just move on to something fun. We plan, after some experience, to start boondocking most of the time, so we will be rigging up with solar panels and extra batteries. My question is about CCC weight. I was shocked to see how little was available in most cases (1900# ???? really?). I have done my home work and with a full load fuel & water (extra 3.5 gal containers), me, my wife, dogs & cats with food & supplies, 2 extra batteries, solar array, extra wiring and electronics, and long-term supplies, I come up with about 4000#. This doesn't count year-round clothing, daily/weekly food, kitchen supplies, etc, etc., etc. I found that the Fleetwood 2014 31TS Terra has over 6000#, but haven't found others up that high. I need an A, not new (2011 - 2014), with at least 5000# CCC. Any thoughts? Thanks.
