  1. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1970-Lazy-Daze-18-Motorhome-Ford-Econoline-E300-Chassis-Museum-Quality/233946517481?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D84c2d8ee998544968226f555a9c2df99%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D7%26rkt%3D7%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D402753319331%26itm%3D233946517481%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2045573&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042 Crazy price or am I wrong?
  2. Yes, Cabela's / Bass Pro is good.
  3. What is wrong with Walmart? Article below say about 58% are still allowing overnight parking. I seldom use Walmart any more. I boondock at rest stops, casinos, motel parking lots, truck stops, etc. Walmart Not The Haven For RV Parking It Once Was – Good Day Sacramento (cbslocal.com) Seldom if ever pay except for NYC and some of the springs in FLA. But that does not mean you can boondock all over the 50 states for free. Every place is different. I was talking to a guy about boondocking (urban that is.) He said it was low class. OK, call me low class. I try to live within my
  4. I was wondering about on the road emergency fixes. Where you have little time to screw around from trip interruptions.
  5. If you own an old rig, did you every have trouble getting it repaired on the road due to age? What age is getting parts an issue? Thanks
  6. OP, I'm like you and don't like schedules. I urban boondock. Got a truck camper, so can park almost anywhere. I seldom stay at a park except when forced to in FLA and when going to NYC. Even then I prefer paying less and parking in their gravel parking lot and save $40 -$45 a day for no hookups. It is $120 a day with hookups and if you can't fit everything in 45' length then it is $155 a day. Plus they require a 50% non refundable deposit. NYC (Jersey City) is terrible for my budget. Sure, most anyone could swing it for a day or two. It is just I did volunteer work a week at a
  7. Last time I was there was the 1990's. It was jammed packed. Uncomfortably so. Any change in overcrowding?
  8. I'm parking rig at a house in the woody area, but still city. They said bears are seen once in a while. It is in the PA area. Do bears break in the RV when people are inside? Any experience with bears? I guess these are brown bears. Thanks
  9. Sounds nice! No basement. Floors have towels over a lot of it to keep them warmish. Floors are about 50 degrees. Head height is 72. Floor near rear exit door is colder. Has ice on it.
  10. I'm getting free electric now. But still use some propane. My little electric heater will only bring the camper to about 60 in 10 degree weather. So I crank up my vent free mini propane heater. I also try to have my force air furnace cycle on every few hours to refresh the cabin air. It sucks air out and pulls fresh air in. The mini electric heater works ok down into the 20's, but that is it. I got 2 -20 gallon propane tanks. So try to limit their use. If the weather was warmer I'd use nill propane, just for cooking.
  11. Never been out west to compare condensation problems. I'm always in humid northeast. I cleaned out everything not needed since my rig is so small. Clutter up against cold interior walls is a condensation magnet.
  12. Wow, sounds exciting. I never get hunting, but I always fantasize about fishing in Canada if I'd hit the lotto. I also get ice on windows. I cut some insulation and jammed it around skylight in shower. I got a wet shower and it gets pretty wet from condensation even with no use. Both skylight was painted over to keep sun out. In the summer the skylights let in too much sun. No AC, I try and cut down the heat. It gets 95 degrees inside.
  13. I've been down to 1 or 2 degrees in my truck camper. I've got ice on the floor near the door. On previous trip, which was down in the 20's I found condensation 2-1/2 weeks after the trip in closets jammed packed with stuff wrapped in plastic. The water forms on the walls and plastic keeps it from evaporating. I guess all the closets need to be open after cold weather use. Do you have any issues with condensation and cold weather use?
