It was the stopping and the kids fighting in the back seat.
At least in a Class C, we can separate them and they can watch different movies on different TVs.
I won't have to stop on the road. I can fuel up before the weekend, that will get me to the dunes and home on 1 tank.
I don't care if I fill my tanks, that is what they are there for.

I am going to use a 28' open trailer that will hold my buggy and both my kids quads.
I hate going to an open trailer, but what can you do.

I am going to get the Jayco Seneca 34' model. It has 2 slides and the Duramax with the 5 speed Allison.
They upped the GVWR for 06 models to 22k GVWR, so good to go there.
The rig has a 10k lb receiver on it and a 26k GCWR.
It holds 80 gallons of fuel and 80 gallons of water. I have never even came close to using all the water in my Warrior, even over Tday and 5 days.

Anyway, I plan on ordering one in June so I get the options I want. Should be ready to go by next dune season.

Well Linckster, gotta say I'm impressed. It sounds like you have the details nailed down. Know what you mean about the kids yapping in the back. Thats the main reason we sold our rig. Our 3 furry kids in the back yapping at everythin that went by. When we drove cross country in our last motorhome (31'class C) it was a joy. They just slept all the time we were traveling. You gotta do what suits you. Tom's idea ain't half bad is it? As I said we are shopping and have spent the winter looking at a number of rigs. May have found the perfect set up. Wadda ya think? Hovergirl loves it. This was us on a test drive.

Linc, I don't know what to tell you except: If it was my kids, I'd either tie them down or put them in the trailer behind (tied down), either way they would not be a problem while I'm driving and they would NOT be a reason why I would use one vehicle or another. Just the way I was brought up! I just can not believe that someone would change the way they travel because of the kids. Wow! Sure glad I don't have kids anymore. I still cannot believe it, there must be a different reason. Wow, just blows my mind. And I'm sorry if I offended you but I still just can't believe it.

Sorry Lic....but I gotta go with Tom's assessment here..."when I was a kid", if you acted up there was a back-hand across your face, and the insurmountable "Am I gonna have to stop this car"? (read: a$$-whopping about to occur- danger! Will Robinson). You could hear a pin drop over the roar of the Olds 454 4-barrel Rochester. My dad didn't need to coerce me with a Panasonic 9" LCD DVD player and headphones to get his point across that any fowlplay or moanin' was not tolerated. I don't want to start a generation war here, but it seems pretty clear "we" cater to our kids alot more than our parents did, and the outcome isn't pretty. I really do hope there's another reason! C'mon...fess up...there's another reason, ey?

Heck...I still find myself sometimes having to smack my 14yo for not coming out of his bedroom from playing his xBox for not saying 'hi' to company that has come over- and will until he's 18 AND out of the house. My hope is he remembers it for the rest of his life (that I gave him) and passes the same demand of respect to HIS children. I love him to death, but I won't allow him to minimize my morals just because he's got his own agenda.

[Yikes...sorry for the rant...I don't, nor even expect that's your case, but I had to make it known]

Anyway...Dave: nice pic of the new rig! How many mpg's do you get with that- got to be alot better than the 8-10 WE'RE getting! Are you sure you've got the appropriate pins in that hitch- you wouldn't want to 'lose 'er'! I'd ask if you had airbags on that setup, but it appears you're hauling 'em! I'd love to Photoshop THAT one (give me some time, OK?)

Wow guys, didn't expect go get beat up on how I raise my kids. My kids are well behaved, no worse than other kids their age.

The main reason for thinking about going the moho way was to avoid stopping for fuel and bathroom breaks.
I can get around the fuel issue by putting a transfer flow tank in my truck. For the bathroom breaks..... I guess everyone can wear depends right?

Anyway, the wife and I decided to keep what we have. I think I would miss not having a truck and I enjoy knowing when I stop somewhere, that all my toys are locked up inside.

Hey Linc:

Sorry the earlier rant...in these days where we see so many kids running around without supervision, it's not hard to fathom buying those kid-leashes (just kidding!)...I'm sure you've got great kids- from reading your posts here and "there", you've certainly got some moral convictions that all of us wish some others would have!

Hey...glad to see you're gonna stay with the current config! Sure would hate to lose you to "the other side". That transfer tank idea is one I've been thinking of also- get a macerator pump and a tank, and I think we'd be good to go!

Good ta see ya here again...stop by more often- we promise not to bash ya anymore! And hey...I've started an article on TV/TH weights and would like to get your help on it...sound good?

Sean

Hey Linc, I'll send my apologies here too. Glad you decided to stick around. The way I look at it, if it wasn't for fuel and bathroom breaks I'd get awfully tired driving. Besides, gives me more chances to find something going wrong during my "walk around".

Heh... my wife went and looked at a used Alfa one of her clients has for sale. She's on a "lets go back to a RV" mode... and me, reading this, was like "But there's going to be a really nice towboss for sale soon!!!"

10-4 Lincster! But first you need to fix your sig AND your avatar!!

...and one of these days we need to see about hooking up. Unfortunately for us, it won't be Glamis...maybe somewhere in AZ?

Thanks!

Sean
