RE: Beartooth Highway

Here's where you can read about RV driving through all Yellowstone's entrances: http://www.rvtechmag.com/travel/4_yellowstonebyrv.php

RE: Free National Park access

Look at the above link and you'll see there are two more free days this year. Mark them on your calendar. They have them every year.

RE: Trail Ridge Road in a Motorhome?

So.... it sounds like you won't be towing a car. Any way you can change that? Going to these awesome places and national parks in the West, you need a car. Your 33' isn't considered small for the limited parking spaces you'll encounter.

RE: Approach to the Grand Tetons

How about coming down through West Yellowstone on US 191? If you're staying in W. Yellowstone that's the most logical way to get to the Tetons, south through Yellowstone. Don't concentrate so much on seeing them while driving. Once you're in the park you'll get the best views right from the park road. Also, take some hikes for different views. Many hikes are easy and gorgeous.

RE: Not new to camping but new to going it alone

Yes, there are some good singles groups out there and they're not dating groups. They get together throughout the country at a designated place and do many things together. We know a few people in these groups and they sound awesome. The help each other with repairs or modifications, go many activities together such as hiking, siteseeing in the area, kayaking, biking, etc. and have fun times sitting around the campfire and potlucks and solving problems and making new friends. After the big gettogethers some branch off on their own in small groups to continue travels. You'd be amazed at how many single women are out there! Here are some sites: https://rvsingles.org/ http://www.rvingwomen.org/ http://lonersonwheels.com/index.html The link given above on the Sister on the Fly is a specialized group of flyfisherwomen if you would fall under that category. That's how it started out, anyway. It may have changed over the years.

RE: WInnebago roof

The point is that an owner shouldn't have to make these fixes to keep their roof on. Over this much time and the many complaints Winnebago should have corrected their system.

RE: Gas stations for Class A gassers with space

Any station is possible that is large enough. Use the end pumps. Use a map satellite view to see what's there. On most interestates the stations are large. I think GasBuddy site gives a notation for RVs... not sure though but as you know, there are all sizes of RVs so best to do a satellite look.

RE: Trail Ridge Road in a Motorhome?

If you haven't looked at the national park's site I suggest you study all areas of it with lots of good information. Somewhere in there is a phone # to call for updated road information. I suggest you have a backup route if the road has issues at that time. Early June can be iffy. Here's some information on the road itself: https://www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/trail_ridge_road.htm

RE: How long will 26 gallons last? (Also, a power question.)

Your black tank should last you the 11 days.

RE: Boon docking/Dry camping in N.E. Texas

Find out what the name of the national forest is where you want to go and use this awesome site to find campgrounds within that national forest. We used this site all the time. They have visited every site themselves and give good directions, also. https://www.forestcamping.com/dow/list/nflist.htm#texas

RE: new and lots of questions

You mentioned Moab. BLM there is very strict as to where you stay. It's not just anywhere. It's mostly in established campgrounds. Problems occurred because folks were setting up camp anywhere. So keep this in mind. http://discovermoab.com/blm-campgrounds/ Also, for a single person, a Class B would be plenty big. Many 2-persons travel in a Class B and yes, full-timing. Not everyone needs a lot of space. Agreed by others that if extensive siteseeing/photography is what you want to do than a small trailer such as a teardrop or Casita might work well for you and then you'd have a vehicle to travel in the boonies with. Check out this blog. She's single and started years ago in the small Casita trailer she has now. She works for the national parks and has worked during Christmas at Amazon. She even has her budget published on her site. Read through it and you may learn some things and get ideas. There's a whole network of young RVers out there. https://interstellarorchard.com/ There a subgroup of the popular Escapee RV Club called the Xscapers. These are mostly younger folks and many are working from their RVs via the computer or working at odd jobs as they travel. They meet up as a group, usually boondocking somewhere, every so often to hash their experience out and have fun together. https://www.xscapers.com/ To answer one of your questions.... we have never and we haven't heard of anyone in our 16 years of full-timing who got broken into and we boondocked on public lands (national forest/BLM) 90% of our time..... and we don't carry. There might be more issues if parking on the streets. Criminals don't go out in the boonies to break in. They're looking for something quick and convenient.

RE: Been looking for months.....Help!

If you do dry camping in national forest campgrounds.... with trees surrounding you.... you don't want opposing slides (or washer/dryer).

Use Google and there are many companies that will cut the memory foam to your specifications. Here's one of many: https://www.foambymail.com/

RE: new and lots of questions

I'm stuck between a big van that looks like a van and not an rv so I can park anywhere I want and not be in trouble. like Walmart, or city streets, basically somewhere that a van wouldn't look out of place. but if I have a small traditional looking RV then I'm pretty much stuck in rv parks about 80% of the time I'm guessing?? or can they park on city streets without trouble from police and their tickets? they obviously look like RV's and not delivery vans.... It seems you're talking of a regular cargo van rather than a Class B RV that some folks here are thinking of. A cargo van is not going to have plumbing, toilet, shower or kitchen facilities..... unless you redo the inside. Therefore, you are going to be constantly looking for places to do your bathroom/kitchen things. I'd recommend you consider a small RV. There are plenty of gorgeous free boondocking spots throughout the country - even with a lake or river view - without having to park on residential streets... and yes, you will get noticed and most often, not favorably. Also, it seems it would be hard to 'kill time' all day long day after day until time to park on the street to sleep. Parking on national forest or BLM lands would give you an opportunity to sit outside or go for a hike in beautiful surroundings until time for sleep. Waking up to those beautiful surroundings would also be a plus. Take along a small grill and enjoy the outdoors. You can't do that on a city street. Good luck with your decision.

RE: Boondocking in Colorado this summer?

That's a wonderful write-up you've done. Thanks for sharing! Just doing a quick once-over I see many places we've been.

RE: Banff and Jasper Canada private campgrounds

http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/alberta/banff http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/alberta/jasper-national-park If these don't work for you then look on a map for town nearby and search that town on the RVParkReviews site.

RE: Winter Travel

Head straight south and eventually get on I-10 to get into New Mexico/Arizona. Don't take I-40 in winter.
