Your RV Is Ready.

I took my RV to the Ford shop because of a recall notice. My camper sits on a Ford Transit chassis.  I also asked for a price for an oil change and installing a trailer hitch on the front end so I could transport my bikes.  My rack is the same that public buses use.   It was such a nice day so I decided to ride around town while waiting for the call that the camper was ready.

When I retrieved the Transit, the dealer gave me a good price for the oil change, but his answer for the front hitch gave me pause.  He said, “Ford does not make the hitch I wanted but he could get one from Camping World and install it for 3-4 hundred dollars.   My pause was the he was going to get it from the place I bought the RV and my power of deduction says that I could save a bit of money by going to the source of the hitch.  However………….   Camping world prices are premium.  I’m going to get a quote from them but I’m not sure they will be less expensive.  It sounds crazy, but in the world of RV’s, things are different.  (not to mention, expensive).   We’ll see.  As for the recall.   All the parts passed the tests and no defect was found.  Naturally, the dealer replaced them.

I did have a decent ride in the city, with the sun shining, and the temps hovering around 50ish.
