Our Next RV?

We’ve been RVing for 40 years and full-timing for 8. We now live in our 40′ quad slide diesel pusher. We both love it, in fact my wife calls our home her condo. They build them bigger, but this is all the room we need. Odds are our rig will get too big, long before ...

7 Advantages For Cable Slides

Like every innovation in anything RV, the “lucky” early adopters help the manufacturers work the bugs out of the new systems. Cable slides have been around since the mid 2000’s and we learned pretty quickly that they weren’t going to stand up for use on big heavy slides. In fact, they quickly became a feature ...

Our Coach Has No Furnace

Oh my goodness, it doesn’t have a water heater either. How could that be? Actually more and more quality RVs are built that way. Since the introduction of hydronic heating systems in the mid 80’s RV manufacturers have chosen hydronic systems in more and more of their high end motor coaches. As these systems become ...

Correct Tire Pressure

There seems to be such huge confusion over something as simple as correct tire pressure. Whenever I’ve bought new tires for our coaches the tire guys have either set them all at 100 pounds because that’s what we are told to do or they have read the tires to find the most pressure the tires are ...

Spartan Unveiling Extol ‘Concept’ Gas Chassis reports RV Business

11.27.2012 · Posted in Class A Motorhomes, Gas, RV's in the news

Way back in the 70’s when you bought a new gas Class A motor home it was most probably built on a Dodge chassis, but maybe a GM.  In the early 80’s, as a result of  loan guarantees Chrysler dropped out of the RV chassis and heavy truck end of the business. Then up popped a ...

Shopping For Older Class A?

Yesterday I got into the middle of a conversation with a couple of future Class A motorhome owners. They are both looking for something in the late 1990’s, gas, good condition and reasonably priced. They understand that with a fifteen year old RV there can be some issues but both these guys are pretty handy. ...

Newell Coach – When Only The Finest Will Do

I admit I’ve been in the RV biz a long time and I also admit to being a bit of a snob when it comes to nice motorhomes. I like quality,  power, great handling, and comfort. Lots of comfort. But in any RV I’m looking at for me I also need to include the word affordable. ...

A Little Story About Our Steering Stabilizer

  We are doing 65 or 70 miles per hour in the far left lane passing a couple of 18 wheelers on a Ohio Interstate when suddenly we hear a load noise from under the coach. I’m thinking it’s a tire but I can’t feel anything different so I assume it must be a rear. I also assume ...

Big Motorhomes Are Easy To Drive

03.08.2012 · Posted in Class A Motorhomes, RV Travel

Really, they are. You certainly need to get used to the size but big coaches, particularily Diesel Pushers are agile and powerful. You sit high above traffic and can see well ahead.
