RE: South Carolina to UP of Michigan trip this Sept/Oct

Peak color ranges from the last week of September to the first two weeks of October - depending on the weather. If Fall is rainy then the leaves will fall fast. Regardless, it will be a very nice trip! The state parks are great but check their closing times. There are also nice forest service campgrounds.

RE: Headwater Campground @ Flagg Ranch Yellowstone

I'd say getting a spot in Colter Bay or Gros Ventre campgrounds would be very doable, especially if you can get to the campground before 2pm, earlier, if possible. Stay close by the previous night. Each has 300 non-reservable sites. We've been there many times with our 40' motorhome and have never see them full. With a pop-up or tent you'll have your choice of any site.

RE: Need Information on Alabama Coast Campgrounds

Gulf State Park is the best 'campground' - with full hookups. If you want a RV park there are many of them. Check them out on this site: http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/alabama/gulf-shores

RE: North vs South Rim Grand Canyon?

DeMotte national forest campground is, indeed, very nice. Just beyond the campground is a forest road on the right. Follow it back (very good stable road) 1/4 mi or so and you'll start to see awesome boondocking spots. There's also a forest road on the left side of the highway but we don't feel the boondocking spots are as nice. The national park's North Rim campground is also very nice - right on the Rim and an easy stroll to the store, restaurant and nice little trail along the Rim.

RE: RidEx for Black & Gray Tanks

Because RVers empty their tanks often and many use other chemicals, using Rid-X does absolutely nothing. It's meant for septic tanks that aren't drained continuously. Try using just a lot of water and you'll notice the same difference.

RE: What I learned about new big DPs at the Tampa RV show.

We full-timed 8 of our years in a one-bath 40' Dutch Star without any issues. I honestly can't recall any time that we both had the 'urge' at the same time to need two bathrooms even though we're old. :)Previous to that was 8 years in a 33' 5th wheel - one bath. Honestly, we would never buy one of the new RVs now because of the d├ęcor, floorplans and price. They don't fit our way of RVing - public parks. Everyone is different, for sure... and that's o.k. The manufacturers are building these monsters because people buy them and want all the gadgets they have in their homes. I really hate to see younger couples buying them and going into debt because they think they can't RV without all those gadgets.

RE: Durango to Zion

From Durango, take 160 west to Kayenta, Arizona then north on 163 to Monument Valley. The View campground is right in front of the famous Mittens - an absolutely gorgeous site. When we were there it wasn't designated as a campground and it was a $5 donation for overnight parking. I think it's a lot more now. It doesn't have electric. Two nights would be sufficient there - driving to it one night; touring the next day (tours available right there) with another night before leaving the next morning. When leaving return to Kayenta, AZ and 160 west then pick up 98 taking you into Page, AZ. Out of Page take 89 to Kanab, UT then north on 89 to Mt. Carmel and the Zion Rd. - Hwy 9. Take Hwy 9 west into Zion. You will have some tunnels to go though and then a long steep downhill into Zion. An alternate, easier route to Zion from Page, AZ take 89 west to Kanab, UT and then south a short distance to Fredonia, AZ. Then pick up AZ389 west to Colorado City and it becomes 59 in Utah. It will take you to Hurricane, UT at Hwy 9. Then take Hwy 9 east to Zion. This is a very scenic route with no tunnels and no steep hills. Watchman campground in Zion has electric and a dump station with water fill. There's also a RV park in Springdale. Both will have access to the free shuttle. Here's Zion's web site for lots of good information including information on the tunnels. https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/the-zion-mount-carmel-tunnel.htm

RE: Help ease my mind about RV choice

I don't think you should be planning around taking your kids and grandchildren with you and therefore, needing a bigger RV. You'll be a lot more comfortable if they bring their tents and get a site next door! Pick a RV for YOU.

Ft Wilkins State Park at Copper Harbor is the place to stay.

RE: dentist nuevo progreso

There are thousands and thousands and thousands of folks (RVers and those living in the U.S.) who have their dental work done in Mexico and who keep returning because of the good results. There are bad U.S. dentists and bad Mexican dentists. There are also good in each. However, the prices differ greatly.

RE: Yuma to Gold Canyon using 347?

347 is o.k. but take 202 east to 60 not I-10 to Hwy 60 and then east. However, a less congested route which only adds 12 miles farther is: I-8 to I-10 north to Exit 190 (McCartney Rd.). Head east on 87/287 to Hwy 79 at Florence. Then north on 79 to 60 (Superstition Hwy) and left to Gold Canyon. You will have a more scenic drive this route.

RE: Good public camprounds in Western Montana?

Why not stay in Glacier National Park itself at Apgar campground?

RE: So what are your plans for 2017?

July, August and September touring the upper East Coast from Blue Ridge Parkway to upper Maine. Little nervous due to all the horror stories I have heard. Such as?

RE: 70 Mile police chase involving RV

I think she was just trying to prove that yes, women can drive RVs, too! :)

RE: Ok to get on roof?

I find it surprising that you have a 2005 and you've never been on the roof to check out things up there. :)

RE: Nervous..no, anxious about first long trip

Thanks for returning and giving us your outcome. Sounds like you had a fantastic trip.

RE: Glacier National Park

Why not take the free shuttle and get on and off and explore? Do you really need a tour on this road? Not.

RE: Headwater Campground @ Flagg Ranch Yellowstone

If you're in a tent or pop-up, why not stay in one of the park's campground with much better scenery and space?

RE: DIY film removable from front of MH.

Our experience is that it's an excellent product to keep chips from destroying the paint. Ours was still in top shape when we sold after ten years of constant use full-timing. It seems when reading these forums that most have problems with it you live in the humid southern states or along the coasts.
