To; All in the market for new toad equiptment.

Just ordered most everything needed for new vehicle that will become our new toad. Blue Ox baseplate cables etc.

After checking every site I could find ,I purchased from RV UPGRADES. No, I don't have any interest in the company other than a satisfied customer.

They had the best prices, lowest shipping and real good service. A lady by the name of Debbie, took care of my orders and cofirmed order by e-mail with tracking numbers.

Hope this info helps, By the way the new toad is an 06 Pontiac G6 ,sedan, loaded, flat towable, 4 wheels down without mechanical add-ons. Should be at dealers in a couple of weeks.

Thanks==== AJBJRVERS@YAHOO.COM

TO; Rebelsbeach;;

Often look at the picture of your rig when scrolling thru site.

Do you keep the rig right next to your house ? It doesn't look like you're in a campground.

We are in the middle of the city and I pay $150.00 a month to park in a lot with construction vehicles coming and going. I never know what to expect when I go down to rig.

We're looking at leasing/buying a pad, down south, out west, we don't know yet, but the quest is on. Even thought about moving to the burbs,but we would still be up north. Almost 2' of snow yesterday.

I'm envious of those who can park near their home,
.

Good luck and happy trails

Thanks===================AJBJRVERS

AJ,we live "right in" the City of Virginia Beach,some 450,000 strong.The "secret" for us anyway,was to find an "older" neighborhood where there weren't the covenants and restrictions that you find in "newer" neighborhoods.As the farm land in our City,out toward North Carolina has been developed into home plans,the "quest" for us RV'ers has gotten tougher. I do know of at least four other RV'ers that live in my neighborhood that I would only assume are here for many of the same reasons. In older neighborhoods the only "restriction" is that the rv must not protrude further out than the front edge of the house.
The only "downside" to buying an older home is all the remodel work I've done.....new kitchen and baths,new carpet...

My rv driveway is 6 inches thick,20 feet wide and 105' long. I've had two coaches side by side stored there,but usually keep it in the middle of the pad when the slides are out and I'm piddling. I have a 50A dedicated rv breaker and water,but haven't figured out how to get sewer there yet...
Thanks for noticing!

To; Rebelsbeach;

Thanks for postinf the pictures of your PAD,.

We are looking for a site, in a campground somewhere down south.

Don't know if we can take Florida.

Also looking at the Carolinas,Georgia.

Will come back north for spring and summer.

Haven't decided , rent or buy yet.
Right now we're paying $1800.00 a year to store/park rig about a mile from our house in a lot shared with construction trucks and muddy most of the time, but it's the only place available.

Have thought about buying in the burbs, but don't want to sell current home/income property.

I only wish we had a set up like yours, because I'm, tinkering/cleaning or some other activity on a daily basis and it would be less hastle if the rig were next door, plugged in etc.

Again, nice set-up.

THANKS ========AJBJRVERS
