RE: Camping in Jasper with small Motorhome

Whistler's or Wapati are the places to stay.

RE: RV options near the eastern side of Yosemite?

Lee Vining campground if you want hookups. 395 is a favorite part of the country for us. Absolutely beautiful and not congested.

RE: Who's going to Yellowstone in 2015

Camping in Cody as camping in bear country with a pop up MC camper is not advised. Be warned, depending where you're camping around Cody, it is grizzly country.

RE: How long in Zion and Bryce

First night - driving to the park and getting settled Second day/night - riding the shuttle, getting off in areas to walk around a 'little' to a viewpoint, etc. Third day/night - relaxing, checking out the Visitor Center which always shows a nice movie, driving your own vehicle around the area - both have great outlying areas Fourth day - leave This is the bare minimum. Many spend a lot more time in the parks but hiking is a big part of it. Have a good trip!

RE: What Do You Do When Your Home Is In The Shop?

We full-timed for 16 years and was never stranded because of breakdowns. When we needed servicing we made an appointment, showed up on the afternoon before. In the meantime, they had ordered any parts which they thought were needed. They picked up the motorhome early morning and took it into the bay. Most of the time it was finished that day or definitely the next. We were always asked to give them a call or they'd call us to let us know the progress. They always let us spend the night in it - most of the time with electric. If they know you're a full-timer they'll get it done - motorhome or trailer. We never spent more that two days at a shop. During the day while they worked on it we'd pack a cooler, goodies, lawn chairs, lawn blanket, computer, any stray cash or important papers, and head out for a day of exploring the new area. We'd drive the towed vehicle to scenic areas or just the local park under a shade tree and read. Sometimes we go to a museum, movie, shopping, etc. It's easy to kill a day. There should be no worries with repairs - unless it's a major engine overall, etc. Also, don't think by buying a new or couple year old RV will get you off the hook for repairs. Buying an older one usually has the kinks worked out. :) Before you buy have it checked out thoroughly. Every motorhome needs oil changes, etc. so expect that.

RE: Pleasant surprize

There are fairgrounds across the country with RV parks and many with dry camping areas. We've used them. Most are very nice and reasonable and extremely quiet. Always check on scheduled activities going on though. You don't want to try for a site during fair time. :)

RE: Headed west

If you are talking about the town of Jackson it could be skipped and no one will ever know. If you are talking about the AREA of Jackson Hole there might be something to do there I was not aware of. What a dumb response! The 'area' you're talking about is Grand Teton National Park for one. There is plenty to do there.

RE: Refrigerator Propane vs Electric

Ours was a Dometic and it ran colder on propane.

RE: NC / SC beaches

Going to Willow Tree (North Myrtle) and going to stay on their spring feed lake with the man made white sandy beach and watch the kiddos playing on the inflatables. No sharks there. :D Are there alligators there? :)

RE: Comparing Class A Cost To Travel Trailers

Personally, I would find a good manufacturer and THEN choose the floorplan from what it has to offer. Why buy junk just because you like the floorplan? As to why retirees get a bigger RV....perhaps because they have more time to travel or spend the winter season south or a summer season north. They're living in it a longer period of time.

RE: Phoenix to Mid-Michigan

You have two choices to get to Grand Rapids, Michigan from Phoenix. Both are approx. 1900 miles - one is all interstates and the other some secondary driving. Phoenix - if you're close to I-17 take that north to I-40 then east on I-40. If you will be closer to the far east side of the greater Phoenix area, take Hwy 87 to Payson, then 260 east to 377 at Heber, AZ, then 377 to I-40 east. This is a 'cool' drive (temperatures) and o.k. for RVs. Then for both take I-40 east to Oklahoma City then I-44 to I-55 at St. Louis to I-80 at Joliet, IL to I-94 in Michigan to 196 to Grand Rapids. The second route - same miles - get to I-40 Arizona as above to Hwy 54 at Tucumcari, New Mexico to Wichita. Then I-35/335 to Kansas City and north to Cameron, MO. Then 36 east to I-55 at Springfield, IL. I-55 to I-80 at Joliet, IL and proceed as above to Grand Rapids. It's not going to be an interesting drive. There will be plenty of RV parks to stop - it'll be hot so you'll want AC. We once lived in St. Louis and near Grand Rapids - now in Arizona. Good luck!

RE: Beach camping on Lake Michigan

Indiana Dunes State Park also has a campground so you might check that out, too. http://www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/2980.htm There's also Indiana Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore but it doesn't accept reservations. It would be a nice place just for a day trip to the beautiful beach if you can find a RV park more inland.

RE: Sedona AZ

That would be neat to see the inversion which doesn't happen a lot. However, not when you haven't seen the canyon - ever. Hope your next trip is better. Trailer Village IN the park is the place to stay.

RE: Yellowstone Holiday RV campground

From Yellowstone you'll go to Grand Teton....wondering why you'd head up to the Yellowstone area again? We haven't stayed here but those have think this is a very nice place. If you need to unwind this might be the place and it would be on you way out of the area - Dubois, Wyoming. It's on the Wind River with large sites. It's pricey though. http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/wyoming/dubois/the-longhorn-ranch-lodge-rv-resort

RE: Plans for the 4th?

As traveling full-timers we had to stay somewhere but we always chose places away from water (rivers, lakes, pools). By doing this we had many nice quiet 4ths. We feel folks have a different mental attitude on the 3-day holidays. Best to stay away. Our very best one was spent while boondocking near Silverton, Colorado. They have a very fun parade and awesome fireworks. Normally we don't do parades but this year we were rooked into being on a Pickleball float. We'll be tossing balls to the kids. But going home before the fireworks.

RE: Inflatable boat suggestions

Do you think you'll use this all the time? Are the kids that enthused about it? This seems like a lot of trouble and cost and I'd probably just rent when you get there. Try renting every trip and see how the kids take to it continuously. It might be a novelty at first but they'd soon get tired of it....maybe not. We've watched small kids like yours have a ball if they each have their own little kayak to play with. Of course, it would be better if the lake was small so they could be rescued! I wouldn't turn them loose on a river.

RE: Advice please

You'd almost have to make the back of your SUV into your garage. Be aware that even if you added a lot of stuff to the RV, would the extra weight really be safe. RVs have a weight carrying limit for a reason. If you got the Class A, make sure that you can really tow it. Many vehicles cannot be towed 4-down. Then you'd need a dolly. What brands and lengths are these RVs? Is the Class A gas or diesel. How many miles on it? Just some things to think about.

RE: Good Sam Club gone bad

As full-timers with a mail forwarding company, we successfully got off everyone's mailing list for junk mail. It can be done. We haven't received any for 19 years now. Really!!
