      Birdie Quality Control is an issue for most of the Recreational Vehicle manufactures! They make death traps for us. A lot of effort went into manufacturing cars and pickups for personal use. Good quality control pretty much fixed the cars in conjunction with the...  more

        Birdie Becca, so sorry for your Ace failure. Thor is a laugh, and I am sorry you have one.

        Curt and Linda If I had small children locked inside I would have freaked out. Seems like you kept a level head and did what had to be done. A shame that we spend so much money on items like this and have to deal with these issues. Shame, shame on the manufacturers!

      Matt & Mary If you RVing, you don't need a fire.  If you are actually camping, it might be a necessity.   Hide 1 Reply

        Guy & Karen Dana There are many things I do not NEED. There are many things I enjoy, and a nice fire with friends and family is one of them. I don't think it necessary to go back to tent camping in order to to be allowed to enjoy that . . . Been there done that!

      Windychic It is my experience Rving and camping are a choice of want not need... Rv parks should do what they think is best for them whether it be allowing fires or not, and of course city county and state code laws will factor in...

      Matt & Mary There are too many people that do not know how to have a fire for it to still be excepted in most crampgrounds.  We have had adjacent start burning plastic dinnerware that was so bad we had to relocate and our gear smelled bad until it was washed.&nb...  more

      DBRyan Well while we're saying no to campfires I would have to say no to charcoal grills also. Too much fire starter liquid being used. Love the taste of food cooked over charcoal just not with the added petroleum flavor and smell.

      Brian&Nadine We are from Iowa and everyone here has a campfire going, sometimes all day and night, too. We went out west the last three winters where the fire danger is high so we just don't do campfires. We have a propane grill if we want grilled food and that does us fine.

      John & Harriet I would be more inclined to visit the manufacturers web page rather than a third party site.

      Buggy travellers Thank you all for the very helpful info

      Greg & Toni I used REMCO towing site.  You can input a year, make, model and it will tell you what you need to tow.  I have a few makes which I was interested in, unfortunately my favorites were tow on a trailer only... settled on a Honda CRV (2011).
