The Russians and Saudis are having an oil war. Add to that the reduced travel due to the C-virus panic and there you go. Suck up the reduced prices now because as we all know; what goes down will come back up.

$1.65 in Bridgeport Texas. When it drops a little lower; I may fill up; but I was told you don't buy an RV to save money

So do they give you a free gallon of milk for each gallon of gas purchased; or something....

Nope, they just line their government overlords' pockets and fund their massive failed social programs with the added per gallon taxes. Not to make this political, just stating California facts.

Something is wrong. I guess it is akin to sometimes you have extravagant hotel or rent a car bills and it is due to taxes associated with these sports venues where players and owners are making hundreds of millions.

I know I personally don't buy gas in California anyway because it is known to the State of California to cause Cancer.

If the gas prices stay low enough for layoffs to happen there should be some great 350 450 550 series trucks for sale from oil field guys.

It happens every time.
Someone gets all goofy, puts 50%down on a $100k truck then can't make a payment.
Keep an eye out.
If you feel this is taking advantage, keep it to yourself and just give him more than he asks.

Even without the layoff, I saw a lot of cases where RV owners had a RV for sale and they were trying to sell for $10-20k more than going rate from dealers for brand new . Their logic quite often tied to their remaining principal on their loans.

I love to buy almost new vehicles, but think we did very well being patient to find the brand new RV that we did from dealer. We were lucky in a way as it had everything plus and it had the most competitive price for the features. It saved me a trip to Arizona to get an aftermarket San T Flush installed Not sure why my model I bought had the San T Flushed installed where the others didn't; but I love it. Makes my day to see that clean water come out.

It didn't save you an install trip, it cost you a free stay at my 50amp full hook up rv pad and a steak as big as my head.

(I didn't install that pad. Original builder of the house did. That guy thought of everything.)

That is awesimous

I am still finishing my RV pad, but it is in congested suburb of North Dallas (Carrollton) in my rear driveway [without your view of course]. I do have a pool and few palm trees to see. I even have gray water drain but I can't compete with you or Arizona

I install the 60 amp breaker and the 100amp subpanel myself before buying the RV I recently moved my fence in 13 feet toward the pool, added a rolling horizontal rolling gate, and erected new 8 ft wall for the back of RV. The 6 ft wall with rolling gate is perfect so if you are in the RV, and look out window; you have the illusion of being on the water I can optionally park it forward, open gate to the max, and put out awning for backyard party and/or mobile outdoor kitchen that showcased our RV's 40 inch TV and outdoor kitchen with gas grill that we make part of the activities.

Before we bought the 29VE, I was getting grief from a few because I said I really like the Hurricane 29M but it was about a foot too long. The view why would 1 ft be a showstopper. Well if you look at the picture you may see how. The Thor 29M would extend into rear alley and the 29VE does not. It worked all the way around for us. We still work, but I can use my RV year around 24/7 on almost any trip.

Note: I am still working to finish it up but I am taking it one step at a time. Just finished the electrical on inside of fence . Staining is next.
