RE: Best lobster in Maine

Well back from trip to New England and Red's Eats is the one for lobster rolls! Took about an hour and a half but worth the wait. Also toured a mansion while in the town where Red's is located and very interesting. Thanks for the tips! I hope the Lobster roll was better than the seafood from Tennessee! ;) :B Glad you enjoyed our corner of the country! :C Mike

RE: RV park reviews hijacked?

I have already cleared the history & cookies from Safari & turned off the phone to reset it several times... Any other suggestions? Thanks! Could try posting the question on the RVPR forum. They are usually good about helping out with IT issues. Mike

RE: Winter Camping Close To New York?

This has probably been mentioned but Meredith Woods in NH is real nice, there's something about a heated indoor pool in mid winter with a snowy landscape that makes this place attractive! :C Mike

RE: After camping 60+ years, finally ran into the ultimate ....

Sorry to hear about that! I've encountered a few people like that - they just go and take what they want, and act surprised when they are called on it. Sometimes they back down, sometimes they get riled up - embarrassed maybe? - and get into an angry rant. Then, when they "win", they brag about it later. I tend to not associate with those people. I had to teach my children, many years back, that there are times when everybody needs a "Hey, Mack" moment.....like the guy trying to back through a lane of cars during the Christmas shopping season at the mall, trying to knab a spot 100 yds back......."Hey, Mack, we don't do it like that" was all that needed to be said. Heck I remember a Hey Mack moment, about 14 yrs ago I was driving through the interior roads at campground in PA, I was totally thinking about something else/forgetting where I was, all of a sudden I see someone rightfully yelling at me to SLOW DOWN. Lesson was learned. It happens to everyone. Mike

RE: How do you define too expensive?

we prefer more natural settings and most private RV parks don't have that. so, most public campgrounds are usually cheaper and provide that natural setting that we like. We lean towards that direction also. The only problem we encounter (because space is limited in our TT and we have to use our shower for storage) is most state/public campgrounds that we have been to on the east coast, bathroom and showers are cleaned poorly, to infrequently or sometimes not at all. Here on the east coast private campgrounds on a whole seem to do a better job on said above, so sometimes that ways in on our thinking when choosing a campground. Mike

RE: How do you define too expensive?

Though I haven't read all six pages, For me I try not to look at the name of the campground. I look at what it has to offer for us. The location. Is the facility maintained, place clean, staff friendly? and of course price to some extent. We try to find the best balance, and the campgrounds that get our repeat business, usually are the places where there is little to sacrifice on said above. Mike

RE: Blowing Lines

Air & Hydronics don't go hand & hand. I just flush out my lines with the pink stuff. Mike

RE: Poll

When it gets dark or just before bed we close the shades. Morning, all shades get opened, I personally like the light coming into the trailer, gives it a more open feeling. Mike

RE: Another season has ended

Sitting by the fire now on a cool crisp evening, this is our last trip for this year. We did manage to get in 8 trips, 2 of which my boys came along. This weekend will probably be winterizing... Have already booked 3 trips for next year! Mike

RE: Beach Camping in the East

Assateague is well worth it. That said it's almost impossible to book a w/e site. We booked 365 days in advance for 4 nights and had to split on 2 different w/e sites, everything was just about grabbed. Mike

RE: summer in north east

We are a retired couple, 66 & 56, going to summer (July-September) this year in the northeast. We have traveled most of the south and northwest for extended periods in our travel trailer but we've never traveled the northeast. We're thinking of starting in Maine, traveling east to Vermont, Toronto and northern NY, and then on through New England. Our thought is to use RV parks for our base, staying in each for a week or so and explore the surrounding area, at times tent camping. We're in the beginning stages of planning and would appreciate any suggestions, must see/do, cautions, etc you can offer. Specific questions are. Do RV parks allow one to be absent from trailer for 2 or so days? We are retired military. We are looking at military campgrounds but there do not seem to be many with RV spaces. Are there parks that offer discounts? Should we make advance reservations at each stop in order to ensure space for our trailer or can we wing it a bit? What would you recommend as a basic itinerary? Ray and Nanette Texas To each is own but in New England you can get a lot of ground coverage by using just one base camp before moving to the next area or state, but that's just my 2 cents. As far as itinerary (in no particular order), Acadia, ME, Cape Cod, MA (off season if possible) Boston MA, White Mountains, NH , Newport RI. And my personal favorite in VT for relaxing, hiking, biking, kayaking, swimming and enjoying nature, Winhall Brook COE Also, RV Park Reviews is a great tool for reserching campgrounds Good luck, have fun and safe travels! :C Mike

RE: Slide out broke?

We have a Rockwood Roo that we took out camping. I will try to explain what happened. When we went to pull out the slide, the slide out channel broke? It is approx 5 ft. long that slides over a small channel. The Roo dealership where we usually does not carry it. Anyone know of somewhere in NW or northern Indiana that would take care of this? Pete's rv is way to slow and never got back to us with previous issues. Thanks. Shot in the dark if you haven't already tried, try googling a local "Rv service" only repair shop. Mike

RE: Etiquette in Camping

We have been lucky, only once did we have family flagrantly cutting through our site. Set our picnic table and my truck in a blocking pattern to give them the hint. Mike

RE: I won't be back

I was at the Hershey RV show and stayed at the Hershey park resort. The normal rates are $49 but because of the show it was $89. I have never paid over $45/night . Everyone complained of unlevel sights and the only good thing about the park was the restrooms. I didn't pay $89 to hang out in a bathroom! Also when we made our reservations our credit was stolen at this park. I will never be back to this park and I hope others will make a statement too. As posted earlier huge event similar to camping on a holiday weekend. add to the fact some unlucky events. I have had one or two camping trips go up in flames too, it happens to everyone. Please post a "objective" review at RV Park Reviews, help your fellow RVers. Again sorry to hear about your bad experience. Mike

RE: New York City choices?

We also considered Liberty Harbor, but reviews are poor except for location. Help! liberty harbor is fine if your only intention is to visit NYC. Been to worse campgrounds, keep your expectations in check and you will be okay. :) Mike

RE: Looking for expandable with slide out

Not much information, but here goes. Jayco X20E Check my profile pic. I have read from some of the forum members that 2015 was the last model year but I'm sure there is almost new ones still around. I believe Jayco still makes the same in a 23' version also. Plenty of different manufacturers out there as other posters will mention. Mike

RE: Camping labor day weekend

Since we don't enjoy crowds, Labor Day, Memorial Day and 4th of July have always been times of year when we have avoided campgrounds of all sorts (from KOAs to state parks) and stayed home. That was definitely our experience in the Chicagoland area when we lived there, and is true out here as well. Same out West. We couldn't even get a spot for miles on those three weekends if we tried. Of course, we don't. I like to sleep at night when I camp, not listen to multiple people cussing and playing loud music all night long. Though there will always be risk when booking on the big 3 holidays. That said I wouldn't think it would be fair to lump all campgrounds together. Sometimes you just need to do a little homework beforehand to prevent a bad camping experience. Find one that doesn't cater to the younger crowd, that enforces policies, and check the reviews. Those 3 usually will improve your odds. Mike

RE: Camping labor day weekend

Looking forward to returning to Cape Cod, Atlantic Oaks campground for labor Day weekend through next week. Campground is very tame. They enforce their policies plus they seem to cater to a quieter crowd. Mike

RE: Best lobster in Maine

The OP is looking for places to eat in Old Orchard, Boothbay and Bar Harbor. He never mentioned anything about lobster rolls !!!!! Maybe the OP will have a change of mind after reading this thread! ;) :B Mike
