Perhaps second only to an ice cream truck heading toward you with an upbeat jingle, seeing a mail truck is usually comforting. Yet, the U.S. Postal Service always seems wrought with controversy. Postage is going up — again. Mail is lost and stolen or delivered to the wrong address. More recently, the postal service was criticized for not distributing election ballots quickly enough.

RV Review: TAXA TigerMoth Travel Trailer

By |2020-12-14T15:17:29-06:00December 14th, 2020|Tech Tips|

www.rvtravel.com

Taxa Tiger Moth hero By Tony Barthel I see a lot of people asking what they can tow with Jeep Wranglers. The TAXA TigerMoth might just be the answer, depending on the Wrangler. According to Jeep, the Wrangler can tow between 2,000–3,500 lbs. depending on the model, and the TigerMoth fits right into that range. It also has the same tough, go-anywhere appearance as the Jeep. That makes sense since this is designed just for the same backwoods trails as that Jeep. The TAXA TigerMoth is more of […]

PDI and doc fees on a travel trailer purchase?

The place I am looking into purchasing an RV from is 11 hour drive. And they want to charge $595 for a PDI fee and $389 for doc fee. This seems extremely excessive to me as I work for a car dealer and well.. a PDI will cost $195 (for an hour’s work) and I’m not even sure we charge for that. And its max $55 for doc fees in my state. Is this typical for travel trailers? I also have another place 8 hours away that is […]
