RE: Coast to Coast

You can't see the country in one trip. If leaving from Arizona to the eastern coast, pick up some secondary highways instead of staying on the interstates. Do the same when returning to Idaho. You'd either do the southern route or the northern. What you need to do is to perhaps get a good road atlas and highlight things you really want to see on this trip. Then connect the dots and that's your route. There is just too much out there to give you a direct route without knowing what your interests are. When you can break your route down more to specific areas, then come back and ask on that one specific area as to RV parks, etc. This all depends on what time of year you plan to head out of Arizona. I wouldn't start this trip Dec - the end of Feb. It's too cold even in the southern states.

RE: 385 south to Big Bend?

There's nothing on the Dept. of Transportation stating any problem. http://drivetexas.org/#/9/30.2935/-102.1617?future=false

RE: San Franciso camping

Are you coming from the north or south..or east? We've stayed in Santa Rosa at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds (it honors many types of camping passes, is reasonable for the area, and has hookups) and also Napa Valley Expo. Both are very easy to get to from the north or east. Never came in from the south. Hwy 37 from I-80 at Vallejo is a easy drive to Napa or continue on 37 to 101 and north to Santa Rosa. We took an excellent small van all-day tour of the city and Sausalito. We drove our car to the Larkspur Landing ferry at 101/580 and picked up the ferry from there - no driving into the city. The ferry is a short pleasant ride across the bay past Alcatraz. It let us off at the Ferry Building by Fisherman's Wharf and the tour van was waiting for us. At the end of the day tour we reversed to get back to our car. Even our daughter, who lives in the city, was very impressed with the tour. We had plenty of time out of the van for walking around the Golden Gate Bridge and the Japanese Garden and other landmarks. We also had lunch in Sausalito by riding across the bridge. https://www.sanfranshuttletours.com/ http://www.sonomacountyfair.com/rv-park.php http://www.napavalleyexpo.com/rv-park.php

RE: Newbie - California Coast question

Definitely park the RV and then do your touring. Then it's easy to stop at small pull-offs to take in the view, pop into a restaurant, a shop or a special interest attraction. You won't be looking at views while driving..or shouldn't. :) Have a good trip!

RE: Bikes on ladder

Bikes will get very, very dirty traveling outside. At least get a good bike cover. We had ours special-made by a canvas shop to our measurements.

RE: Getting RV exchanged by manufacturer

They won't exchange it for your reasons. I'd quickly drop Camping World and find another Winnebago dealer or the factory again. If that's inconvenient find an independent RV repair. Believe it or not, there are good ones out there.

RE: How about 2003 Newmar Mountain AIr

You might have better response in the newmar section There is no Newmar section on this forum but you might try at irv2.com As a partial answer....Newmar is an excellent company and if the motorhome has been well taken care of and within your budget, it's a good one to buy. We had no issues with our Newmar although it wasn't the model you're looking at. I just did a quick search and here are a couple for price comparisons: http://www.rvt.com/New-and-Used-Newmar-Mountain-Aire-Class-A---Gas-RVs-For-Sale-On-RVT.com/results?type=Class%20A%20-%20Gas&manu=Newmar&brand=Mountain+Aire Good luck!

RE: How to plan one week in the Canadian Rockies

We also prefer Jasper. Banff is a little more 'uppity'. :) There are some nice easy trails and we stay in Whistlers. If your knees aren't what they used to be definitely bring your swimsuit along and try the hot springs around the area. It feels sooooo good. We can spend hours there. Make sure you travel the whole Parkway though and stay at least a couple days at Banff to tour that area. Radium Hot Springs near Banff is very nice on 93/95. Do a side drive to Kicking Horse on Hwy 1 toward Golden. The waters are beautiful in color and wild-looking. You can easily spend more than a week!!

RE: RV park reviews hijacked?

I just tried it and clicked on the state map and also clicked on Calif from the left column of states. Both came up normally. It has to be your phone. Have you tried from another source?

RE: Roll call Alaska 2017

We are looking at doing Alaska from Atlanta in 2018. I assume we won't have any issues navigating our 2015 Dutch Star through Canada and Alaska. Hopefully by then we'll be towing a jeep Any advice?? I am trying to read as much as I can and get as much input before we make the trip You will have absolutely no problems on any of the roads with your Dutch Star. There are no low tunnels to worry about. Semis travel the roads all the time. Get Mike and Terry Church's book 'Alaskan Camping' which includes Canada, also. It's all you need to plan your trip. It will give you RV parks, public campgrounds and great boondocking spots and the sizes of the sites. Also get the Milepost which is great for the history and maps. We kept both books open all day. We took turns driving and reading the history to each other. :) The only reservations we made were for the July 4 weekend (Alaskans like to camp, too) and for 5 nights in Denali's Teklanika campground. For those we only made them a few weeks prior when we could better judge when we'd get there. As it turned out we were early for Denali so on a whim we boondocked nearby at a beautiful spot and pulled into the park early morning. We easily secured a spot in Riley Creek campground without a reservation. We spent 10 nights in Denali and saw 'the' mountain 7 of 10 days and every one of the big five critters in the park - more than once. We were in Denali mid-August - colors starting and the firewood at its peak - beautiful! It really is an easy trip - just long. Don't think of it in terms of the total mileage. Break it into a day at a time and it won't seem so bad. It shouldn't be a rushed trip. Take it nice and slow and explore Canada and the Yukon, too. Some places are just as lovely as Alaska. Have fun planning!

RE: Where to meet family between Colorado and North Carolina?

Take a look a the Traverse City area in Michigan. Particularly around the Lake Leelanau area. Some nice RV parks there. Might just be getting warm enough for swimming. Since you're talking of summer I would highly recommend this area. It's absolutely gorgeous. The weather is great!

RE: Fishing bridge campground

Call directly for a big rig. Don't rely on the reservation site. Yes, there are some big rig sites. Reserve early.

RE: Boondockin/dry camping in a 42' MH.

This post "No reservations with a 42' motorhome for the whole trip, even in public campgrounds.... and folks say it can't be done." prompted me to start this one. :W We full-timed doing it exactly the way you do. No problems....even though folks seem to think there are. Your trip report was great although too many driving hours for us. You need to slow it down. :)
