Still getting it wrong about the increase in the price of gas.

Not sure I follow you, Gene. We get our numbers from the U.S. Energy Administration website for the Gasoline and Fuel Update when posted the Monday before the newsletter. Where would we find more accurate information? Thanks. Have a good night. 🙂 —Diane at RVtravel.com

It all depends if you want nation wide government telling us what we want to hear or just go to your state resources or google and type in either state average or national average. Either way you will a lot of varied answers. In Michigan for example gas prices are based on where you get the gas. M Live stated that gas over on A street is 5 cents higher then say the gas station north of A street is 5 cents cheaper. It is all based on real estate. If the gas station has to pay more for real estate and renting the place then they have to charge more to keep up appearances. I know for example if they have prime real estate near the highway persay then yes they can charge more because you are disparate. I know for a fact if I go to a gas station out of the way I will pay almost 10 cents cheaper. Bottom line? It pays to shop around or go to either Costico or Sams club to get your gas. IMO not yours

Thanks so much for all your work in providing all this info! Very helpful to keep up on things.In the article about the number of U.S households that consider themselves campers the number given is 84 million. At the national average of 2.53 persons per household that equals 212,520,000 of the approximately 330 million U.S.population. That’s 65% or just about 2/3 of the households. Does that seem possible? Nowhere near that % of households I have firsthand knowledge of consider themselves campers. Maybe the article means that at least 1 person in the household camps. Just curious!

Regarding the Yellowstone driverless buses, heck some of the best stories and good yarns are told by the drivers and some could have given Bob Hope competition! What a sad loss to questionable transportation for a national park!

Surprised you didn’t add the caveat, “only to be used while parked” when describing the steering wheel desk (lol).

That is so sad to hear that national parks are going driverless. This will put a lot of drivers who want a job out of work. Unless there is a driver behind the wheel? I will never get in one of those especially one that puts drivers out of a job. As for electric bus vehicles? There was a district I drove for school bus wise 10 years ago that tried electric. That was a big expense keeping it running and more of a surge on resources and money. They sold them and went back to diesel. Hate to say I see some buses using propane. No way am I driving a bus that is using propane. Glad I am retiring because propane and electric drain money away from other things and do not want to go boom with propane. Keep the diesel pushers. And as for national parks? Sure hate to hear that they want toilet cleaners more then they want drivers who can talk about the area. IMO not yours

Just downloaded the Who Makes What directory. Thank you for making information like this available!

But … since I own an American Coach Tradition, naturally that’s where I looked first (plus, it’s first in the alphabetical listings). “American Coach > Thor Industries” ….???

Since when? We must have missed this news! As far as we know, American Coach is owned by REV Group, who bought the Fleetwood companies some time ago. Did Thor buy out REV too?! Are we destined to having everything we buy or do owned by just two companies: Camping World or Thor?

My research shows that American Coach is owned by REV Group. I found an error in the link for Palomino but haven’t reported it, until now I reckon.

With regard to the fire extinguishers you advertise, I had them in my Amazon cart but I found the same ones at Lowe’s for $20.48. A $9.47 difference (31.6% savings) Plus a 10% Vet discount. Removed from my Amazon cart. Sorry…

On the news article about the RV explosion, that was reported to have happened in Locust Lake State Park, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The woman was from Virgina.
