      LarandSus Thu at 11:05 AM If you are going full time, make sure your RV insurance coverage is full timers coverage. There are not too many insurers that offer it. We are Florida residents and have Progressive insurance.

      Schaken Mon at 6:23 PM Given the number of reports of catastrophic failures of Goodyear tires on other forums, one has to wonder if the risks are worth the small savings. If I recall correctly, Goodyear was either thought or found to have covered up known defects in its RV tire...  more

        Ricky Crow Wed at 12:08 PM The GL159 tires were the model causing those problems. It has long since been replaced with a newer version. BTW unlikely you would ever see that tire on a pickup truck.
