So, you want to buy an RV!
Here a a few things you should do if this is your first RV.
1st You need to pretty much know what type of RV you want to buy. Note: Your first RV should be purchased used, because, for sure, a year or two later you will want something different.
2nd You should have researched the market to see what the prices run for what you want. Note: Johnny Walker RV here in Las Vegas carries Heartland RV.s
3rd You should be ready to buy if you find what you want in excellent shape at a great price. Note: Sales from private individuals are exempt from sales tax. A savings of $1500 or so.
4th Then you should call me to see the rig. Why, not until then?
Well, we are both around 80 and it is a little hard getting around, and the RV is at our brother's house, and it is a small hassle for us to show it. Not, a problem, of course, if you are really a buyer and ready to buy if you find the perfect rig.
We bought the North Trail new in September 2010 and really loved it, but it is getting too difficult for this old man to deal with. I wish I was 70 again. ;-(
We left here in May and just got back from WA and OR in August, so we put about 4000 miles on the trailer with absolutely no problems. It trails well, and turns sharper than other rigs because of the patented wide spacing between the axles (as you can see from the picture above).
1. Available right here in Las Vegas, so no shipping charges
2. No sales tax when purchased from an individual.
3. Less than one year old (bought new in September 2010)
4. No other added unadvertised fees.
5. Lots of stuff can go with it, ie kitchenware, some tools, and other stuff.
6. If you need a tow vehicle and buy the F150 also, you will get about a $1000 worth of hookup hardware.
6. Information and/or instruction on all you need to know if you need it.
7. Fiberglass construction, not sheet metal.
8. Great electric awning
9. Large pass-through under the floor storage.
10. I picked this travel trailer for its light weight, its strength and its excellent design. I have a Masters in Aerospace Engineering and I am fussy about design and construction. For instance the slideout only goes out about a foot (like most of the luxury motor coaches) rather than 2 feet, which makes it a lot stronger. The slide takes out the fridge, the sofa and two closets, which gives more room in the kitchen and deeper closets than most. The usual 2 foot slideout only gives you more floor space at the sacrifice of strength. The sofa faces a large window which is nice. I am 6' 3'' and 220 pounds and the bathroom is a little small for me, but fortunately, I don't live in there. The trailer is really well designed and seems much larger then 26' when you are inside. We only used the gas furnace a couple of times, just to check it out. We used one of those small portable electric 1500 watt heaters, but only used the 750 setting even when the night temperature got down to 40. I like to use the RV parks electricity rather than my propane. Likewise, we usually used the electric capability for the water heater rather than the propane. The furnace and a/c are controlled by a hand-held remote, which works, but is really not any advantage that I can see.
I can probably answer any questions that you may have, so call me or email me at--
If you are interested in our '05 F150 v8 4.6L you should know that it was about perfect when towing our light-weight North Trail, except for only one day when we had 30-35 mph head winds near Boise, ID on I84. Then it sucked. The rest of the 99% of the time I loved it. So, if you want to be able to pass everyone all the time, the F150 isn't for you. Get a F350 HD. Normally one only tows 10% of the time anyway, and the F150 rides more like a car than a "TRUCK". During the whole 3 months there was only a day and a half when I wished I had a bigger pickup. I can live with that for the better comfort and better gas mileage. We got up to about 8500 feet and handled 6% upgrades and downgrades with ease. Well, maybe not ease, but at least with no problems. I believe the F150 is really the best compromise for our light-weight travel trailer. The 6900 lbs. GWVR of the rig was well within the towing specs of the F150.
On Monday the 8th of August, we finished our trip by pulling the rig from Ely to Las Vegas (240 miles) in 4 hours driving time at 70 mph and got 11 mpg. Not to shabby!!

The last 7 photos were taken on August 11th, 2011, and this is how it really looks.
Why would you pay about $28000 for new from a dealer, plus sales tax, for the same RIG?
Well, I did, but then, there wasn't one like this available in the whole country.
