RE: 30 day trip out West - Dare we without reservations?

I live in Oregon and travel/camp all over the west. I don't believe I've ever made a campground reservation. Aside from showing up at canyonlands national park and secure three sites on the white rim trail anyway. Then again I try to stay away from the huge touristy campgrounds with swimming pools and such. I don't know where you're going on the north rim but toroweap campground is amazing if your rig can stand a bunch of washboard roads. The southwest is going to be extremely hot in June too.

RE: Dual alternator as a generator

I don't believe they're suggesting idling the engine overnight. Between having a large battery, solar, energy efficient components, short drives should recharge the battery and a short time idling. Their setups really shouldn't need to have constant charging power. When you start driving off in an earthroamer you ought to be working it enough to clean it out.

RE: Robust TC Wanted

Check out Bigfoot or northern lite? Much more solid builds than the stick and staple/glue of the typical RV.

Travel lite.

RE: Hovertruck - Rotating all 6 tires with camper jacks alone

I really hope this is a joke, for many reasons..

RE: Poor build quality on Palimino M2902 (2013)

I looked at a couple of brand new palomino campers about 2 years. I wouldn't ever consider purchasing one myself. Complete junk IMO, much more so than the "average" junk that the rv industry is putting out. My travel lite wasn't perfect, but general quality overall seemed much better than the palominos for what I thought was a similar price point.

RE: First impressions and first trip report with new camper.

Check out rotopax fuel containers to replace those crappy, leaky 1 gallon containers. The rotopax can be bought up to 4 gallons in a variety of thin sizes, they don't leak, and they are mountable/lockable.

RE: Where to jack up the front of a SRW 2011 F350?

I can't offer any advise regarding the Jacking up of your truck but I am amazed at the amount of rust that is present on that year vehicle. Hah, yeah it's Ohio. Flat as a pancake and they salt the roads way more than any western mountainous states. Kentucky is nearly as bad with salt, it's disgusting. After spending a few years in that region I simply can't understand why a person would even want to own something new or remotely nice! In response to the original post, read the manual. More than likely they will advise the axle tubes as far outboard as possible.

RE: Anybody driven Cottonwood Canyon Rd in Southern Utah?

FYI you can camp for free as well, but the flies were really terrible everywhere we stopped. We planned to hang out and camp/hike but the flies were unbearable for us anyway. We blasted south and went to toroweap instead. I never saw anything bad about the "sand pit" mentioned on the south end of the road either. Just a little sand here and there if it is dry.

RE: Anybody driven Cottonwood Canyon Rd in Southern Utah?

I just drove through a couple days ago in my jeep and there was a truck camper parked about mid way. Very dry, lots of bugs, the road is just washboard with some occasional small sand pits. Should be cake with 4x4 and stock tires. I blew through in a short time but again I was driving my jeep on 35s, aired down.
