    Texas 130 toll road

    Can't be that bad. You can also drive a little faster on that road, it has a posted speed limit of 85 mph (137 km/h), the highest posted speed limit in the United States. Bill

    Trip cost

    Al, see that wasn't so hard. 😁


    Be aware Fishing Bridge Campground is closed for the season for upgrades. https://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/campgrounds.htm Last trip we stayed on the west sidee out on 20 at Buffalo Run RV Park & Cabins. The first time we couldn't get closer than Yellowstone's Edge RV Park. Great park and we were right on the river. That is north on 89. http://yellowstonesedgervpark.com/ I would be calling for reservations now. Bill

    Trip cost

    First of all it's not a a one day trip. One day there and one day back. That is 7-8 hours on the road both ways. It is pretty obvious the car is more expensive the way you are trying to calculate this. You have the cost of the car and add in the cost of the RV. You are paying for it weather you are using it or not. The big question is which one makes you smile more. Bill

    Grand Cherokee Jeep towing

    Welcome to the form. I would guess it is or they wouldn't mention it in the towing directions. Bill

    Monaco production video pre bankruptcy

    Welcome to the forum. Where did you find it and where are you based? Bill

    Bedroom Slide

    I would use the Lucas Red "N" Tacky grease or the Sta Lube. I haven't found anything that stayes in wheel bearings like Sta Lube. Both stick to the metal and won't wipe off or squeeze out as easily as most do. Bill

    Grand Canyon

    Welcome to the forum. As stated Trailer Village is the best place. Call today, don't wait to make reservations. The free shuttle bus will take you places you can't go in your toad. Bill

    For those that are looking for a "Better Quality" class A

    I suspect if you are in that group, you just say" I don't want a bar in the windshield, I don't care what it cost." Bill

    "Urban Delivery" not appropriate for RV use

    So why don't you as the "Tire Guru" Help FMCA do a better job of getting the right and proper information on the tire charts in the FMCA Tire Program? I just looked at the Hankook listing for tires that would fit my coach and nowhere does it give tire rating or speed rating. Instead of odd numbers that don't readily relate to anything on the manufactuers website, why not make them a clickable link to that tire on the manufactuers website. Bill

    Cabin Fever "2019"

    The spiders could have been running from this one wasp. I have seen them flying low looking for spiders. I have pictures of one that was dragging a big tarantula across the grass headed for a place to stash it. It was moving right along and I don't get to close or do anything to upset the wasp. The wasp is quite attractive they are quite large with cobalt blue body and copper wings. You definitely don't want to get stung. The sting is described (in peer reviewed medical text) as so bad you are stung just lay down and start screaming. No I don't want to try it and see if it's true. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=18&v=287mfv6lbDU Bill

    The problem here is you are thinking like a RV owner not a bus company owner looking at cost of operation/maintenance Bill

    For those that are looking for a "Better Quality" class A

    I am totally in the wrong demographic groupe I just can't believe there are enough people out there saying "Heck yes I will spend up to $3,000,000 on a coach TODAY if it had a oversized sauna" . Bill
  15. I had heard that Fortravel was doing some Provost conversions but had never seen one. So here is an example of the new Emperor Sauna Suite by Foretravel (45ESS) New 2020 Prevost H3-45™ Emperor Sauna Suite by Foretravel (45ESS) I thought I would post this so those looking could find this bargain. They have already discounted it $782,700. I don't think I need that big of a sauna. Bill
