RE: Advice needed. Band ready to hit the road and start touring.

Here's one for $6,000 at PPL consignment in Houston. It's a 1987 motorhome. You could probably offer lower. The sleeping arrangement would be perfect for the four of you. 1987 Motorhome at PPL

RE: Lordsburg, NM to Gold Canyon, AZ

No problem with Desert Captain's route. It's a very scenic drive - better than the interstate and minimal traffic.

RE: Traveling I-10 in mid-December

Semi trucks travel I-10. There are no tunnels or anything else that should concern you. Have a good trip!

RE: Your Wish List for RV Manufacturers

I just posted this in the Class A forum: if closets/drawers are put in a slide there's a very good possibility of mildew. Slides are very cold and keeping a closet door closed or drawers, there's no air circulation. We looked at a 5th wheel years ago that had the closet and drawers in the slide. We opened them and could smell the mustiness immediately and there was black mold in the corners. As far as walking space around the bed - we've not had that issue.

RE: What slide design do you prefer

We've heard that if the closet is in the slide and/or drawers, that things can mildew. Slides are cold and if it's closed up by a closet or drawers there's no air circulation. We have the bed in the slide with two windows on either side and plenty of room to walk around and two end tables. We soon discovered we don't like the two windows either. On full moon nights or in the mornings, too much light enters onto our faces. We like a dark room. We have since added the silver insulating material in each window and keep the shades lowered all the time. We never use those windows We also have a large window at the foot of the bed which lets in plenty of air and we have a Fantastic fan in the bedroom also so when that's on the window air blows over us nicely. It works for us.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Leave the full-width rock 'guard' off. We saw folks taking them off while in Whitehorse and saw a layer of large rocks at the base of their toad's windshield. We didn't have one and we had no damage during our trip.

RE: Boondocking near Lake Havasu City AZ

The "Steps" as mentioned above is very popular.

RE: Question: Favorite site in Lost Dutchman SP, AZ?

You really can't go wrong with any of the sites and they all have a good level to them - not perfect in some cases, but very doable. If you have a motorhome you'll want your front window facing east or north. If you have a 5th wheel with big windows in the rear you'll want them facing the same. Also keep in mind if you want sun on your patio side, etc. It all depends on your RV. Check out the pictures of the sites online for help. Have a great time! We've volunteered there and visited many, many times. The hikes are very nice.

RE: Connecting from I-40 to I-10 in Arizona

In December you don't want to take any roads from I-40 and east of I-17. You will be in high elevations. As stated above, take I-17 south and pick up Hwy 74 westward. Don't go as far into Phoenix as 101. That's a lot of unnecessary traffic. Plus, it's longer than Hwy 74.

RE: ideas for parks and sights in eastern CA. highway 395

The June Lake loop road is paved, RV-friendly and worth a stop. Some nice hiking there.

RE: We're new and excited!

You will definitely find younger full-timers out there. Many are able to work from their RV as you plan. It's easier to do than years ago. I've read some interest blogs. You might try Googling something like "blog, young RVers" and I'm sure something will come up. We began in our early 50's and absolutely had a blast for 16 years traveling constantly and volunteering in national and state park occasionally. Best of luck to you and don't keep that storage container too long. It really doesn't pay to do so.

RE: Your Wish List for RV Manufacturers

Every single thing on all your wish lists is out there already. You just need time and money to find them. :) Some manufacturers will build to suit just YOU. Of course, it won't be what you want to pay.

RE: Connecting from I-40 to I-10 in Arizona

First, monitor the weather along I-40 from Albuquerque. We've done this many times and highly recommended taking I-17 south to Hwy 74, Exit 223 just north of Phoenix. Take 74 west toward Wickenburg and pick up Hwy 60 west which will take you to I-10 near Ehrenberg. It has minimal traffic, is a good two-lane road and is very scenic. There are no mountains or steep, curvy roads. Plus, you won't get into the Phoenix traffic. Have a good trip!

I'd recommend the last two weeks of August. Many schools begin in August in the western states. For your first stop in Rocky Mtn. in August reservations are recommended if you want to stay in the park itself. Rocky is close to a large population center so it's really crowded. If you want to stay in Estes private parks, getting there early morning would probably get you a site without reservations. Moraine or Glacier Basin (we volunteered there) are very nice campgrounds in the park with great views and close to nice hiking - some easy. They're also close to Estes for trinket shopping. :) 3-4 days would be ideal. Grand Teton Nat'l Park is altogether different than Yellowstone and it's too far to travel back and forth. It's like a miniature Alps. Plan on staying in the Tetons at least 2-3 nights. If you can, take a gentle guided float trip through the park on the Snake River and you just might see moose in the river with you. The hikes are gorgeous and there are many nice easy ones. Colter Bay campground and Gros Ventre campground (our favorite) in the park itself each have 300 unreservable sites. You'll definitely get a site without reservations, especially if you stay nearby the previous night and pull in during the morning. Never try to get a site in the national parks by pulling in the afternoons. It's possible, but more difficult. Yellowstone isn't noted for day hiking for most folks because the park requires a lot of driving although you'll be doing a lot of walking just to see the geysers/mud pots, etc. We've always had good luck getting a site at Mammoth campground even with our 40' motorhome. Again, get there early morning. Plan at least 3-4 days in Yellowstone. Have fun planning!

RE: Mind boggled...

I think you're looking for the impossible for winter camping unless you're resigned to freezing and having no running water. It's just not going to work to boondock in winter unless you can budget much more. Good luck!

RE: Cars that gan be towed

4x4 Jeeps are popular for towing. They give you additional fun. :)

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip!

Hmmmm. You might have to change the title of this post to "The Not-So-Perfect Family Trip". :) It's great that even though things don't go perfectly there can still be a good ending. Really enjoying your posts and amazed at all the work you're putting into it. Thanks!

RE: Non Park Model Arizona RV Resorts?

I just checked the first two weeks of January for Lost Dutchman State Park and there are 25+ hookup sites available. Never assume there are no sites left. Do some checking for various dates.
2gypsies 11/22/14 03:23pm Snowbirds

Our Jeep Liberty is 10 years old with 175,000 miles on it. It's done some tough trails and all of the Silverton, CO area. It's only had routine maintenance of oil changes and tires and runs like a dream.

RE: Non Park Model Arizona RV Resorts?

The RV park in Tucson at LazyDays is now a KOA. No park models. Many folks like it. Do you need a RV park? In the Phoenix area we love Lost Dutchman State Park and all of the Maricopa County parks. All are good for big rigs. In Tucson, Catalina State Park is nice. Big-rig friendly.
