How is a diesel motor $60K more expensive than a gasoline-powered one?

Love the cutting board!

Spacecraft makes some nice 5th wheel trailers. Might be tough to get one into the local State Park though

Thanks guys, yeah, he is a really nice guy, dishwasher for a wood cutting board, I think not.

We decided to buy new, (yeah I know), BUT a new warranty and the fact that I got a seven year extended bumper-to-bumper warranty for another $2,9xx is an attraction.

New electronics, servos, etc. I drop it of at the Dealer and he fixes it in a day or two. I'm not going to be figuring out all the SAT electronics and such.

I live in an HOA in a townhouse, I can't do any work on any vehicle here.

Well worth it if your inclined to drop the coin. The ride and noise alone did it for me. Rides like a caddy going down the road. Although the newer gas units have come along way in closing the gap on that front. Nice looking rig Hugh.

We drove to Phoenix today and pulled into a Rest Area near Wickenberg. A guy pulls in with a big motorhome towing a Jeep.

He saw my fly fishing sticker on the back window of my truck and we started talking fishing. Turns out he's from Maryland and does "deep trough" fishing or something like that. 8 lb weights fishing at 1,000 feet for Grouper. He used to sell boats on the East Coast and now travels around.

He was on his way to Gilbert to trade in his 2018 model for a new 2019. I told him about my $18k R-Pod travel trailer and how much we enjoyed it. He said "That's all you need" and said if we were in the market his rig was for sale and gave us a tour.

Fck me runnin', this is it here on the website, a bit out of my reach! Beautiful though!

Sweet rig, you could put bath tub with jets like a hot tub in there somewhere I bet, looks big enough, 57 feet is just crazy

I had one of those parked next to me for a month or so this year. They base at about $2 million.

Just came back from Palm Springs. Stopped at Camping World to have a washer/dryer installed and some old guy backs into my rear bumper with his pickup. He has insurance. Camping World thinks $750 for a factory painted replacement bumper. It’s not even a month old.

$750 plus paint or $750 all in? That is not bad if all you have to do is install.

You might be correct. It's sure tacky.

Insurance is going to cover it. It’s 3 weeks old

I can’t catch a ******* break. As I said, earlier, took it to Camping World to install a washer/dryer combo. I Paid Winnebago when I ordered it to finish faucet hot/ cold water, drain and electrical and dryer vent for a drop in washer/dryer unit. They did about 1/2 so I’m going to hassle with them and the dealer over about $500 of changes.....
