RE: Possible 4 season 5ers and minimum requirements?

Bighorn's are zero tested. You can get a Yeti Package Option, although we don't have it. When we camp in 30 degrees, we can keep our comfortable at 50 with minimal heater use.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch

We have a TS BD3. The only hitch we've ever had because our previous TT hitch was a Hensley and we traded it in on the BD3 when we got our FW. Top quality and easy to remove if you get the BD3, other version of their hitches do not come apart to remove and your hitch weight will determine the hitch version. Smooth riding. No chucking. Easy hitch up and because of the way you hitch, you'll know if you hitched up correctly. TS's are all air rides which accounts for their name - it says it all!

RE: Elk Mt RV Resort - Stanley ID

Hi Karen, Although we haven't stayed there, just going by the sites look pretty close and packed in. Depending on when you'll be visiting, there's a really nice RV park with full hookups between Stanley and Challis called Torrey's. We've stayed there a couple of Memorial Day weekends and were the only ones. It is by the highway, but so is Elk Mt. Here's the link to Torrey's - Torrey's Resort & RV Park There are some really nice forest service CG's in that area too.

RE: Possible 4 season 5ers and minimum requirements?

Search this forum for those brands. You'll find a lot. Agree. Bighorn's are not only 4 season with a heated underbelly, but are rated for full-time use.

RE: Boise/Meridian KOA

Thanks for sharing this information. Definitely not good policy and they did not handle it well at all. We would've done the same - cancelled.

RE: Transit through Yellowstone? South ent to west ent

CloudDriver - You're welcome. Brooks Lake is beautiful but a drive back. The road is a good packed dirt road and wide in some spots to pull over to make room for oncoming traffic. Sites are varied and smaller than Falls, so for us with our FW, we prefer Falls. When we went to Falls last September, they were having problems with the water system, so none was available at the pump. Due to that, the fee was reduced a little. We carry enough at all times and are conservative so it wasn't a problem for us.

RE: Trailer Length

Once again, a salesman that doesn't have experience in towing creates fear and doubt. Yes! You are fine. Many, many, towables much longer and taken on the road daily. Think about it - not only TT's, but FW's, and even motorized units are much longer. If you are fine with it, then it's good, as long as your TV and unit are setup to handle any possible sway.

RE: RV lot layouts + floor plans

Mine is 35' The Bighorn series is built on the same line as the Landmark series (Heartland's premier series). They share some options and I think they share some components, but am not sure. Maybe someone who knows for sure could let us know. Mine stickered at well over $80k. I think I got it for about $52k. Wow!! You got more than a third off! Did you buy it wholesale, or locally? I wish they would stop this MSRP stuff and that the manufacturers would set a real price! I do NOT like dickering!! Same pricing range for our Bighorn too and that was in 2010 for a 2011 model.

RE: shock when touching Rv

Google "RV with Hot Skin" - that's it!

RE: shock when touching Rv

I think it's referred to as hot skin. Google that. Try this.. BTW - googling "hot skin trailer" brings up a whole lot of other stuff not trailer related!

RE: RV lot layouts + floor plans

As others have said, there is so much variable, that the most important thing is the interior layout of what you pick and if it will work for you. As for where you park and if the slides will fit, it changes. Consider instead your lifestyle. Do you need access to your kitchen en route, at rest stops to cook? We do, so that was a must for us. We have a mid kitchen and with the slides in I can get to all appliances and the sink. One of my pantry cupboards is blocked by a slide, so I make sure that all my coffee making supplies, some water bottles, and foods are in an accessible pantry. What about access to your shower, toilet, and bed? Will the slides in hinder it or does it matter to you? In glancing over the other replies, maybe it would be best to visit fifth wheels, a lot, at dealerships. Ask them to bring in the slide, take a look at what you can access. What if you are en route and stop for groceries, can you put them all away easily? Spend a lot of time looking before you decide. Perhaps you are apprehensive on the commitment? If so, wait on your decision. Let some weeks or months pass. Time has a way of making you realize what's important. We too, have never been in a situation where our slides were blocked at a camping site. We've had 4 TT's before our FW and three had slides. Good luck in your decision. Thank you very much!! Your reply was very helpful!! Yes, time HAS changed things and I am sure will continue to change... Six months ago, I could not part with much of anything in this house. Now, I am wanting to get rid of everything!!! But one question...can you sit on a sofa or dinette while it is closed? I read that it will damage the slide mechanism if you do....same would go for the bed, I suppose...to sleep on it with it closed at a Walmart parking lot... You're welcome. As for sitting on the sofa, using the dinette, or bed while the slide is in - if the slide is flush with the floor when extended, then it has a different support system and use of it while the slide is in should be limited. The bed is different because it has it's own support system, which is pretty hefty. We use ours while it's in but limit use of the dinette while it's in. In other words, one of us sits on the steps to eat and the other sits at the table - less weight. Again we only do this for a lunch at a rest stop, so it's doable for us.

RE: Transit through Yellowstone? South ent to west ent

Hey CloudDriver - Falls is our favorite campground. It has an Electric loop that's great, but the dry loop is good too with many sites to fit our rig.

RE: Which part of campground should I park in

In the most scenic part of the campground with the hookups you need or want!

RE: Transit through Yellowstone? South ent to west ent

As for Gros Ventre. Last time we camped there we had a 32' TT and fit fine. There are various sites and my understanding is that they now offer electric sites. Notice the fifth wheel in the back. Gros Ventre - row style, back in. http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh119/ReneeG_photo/PA010100-1.jpg width=640 Our site - Gros Ventre - wide - this is a 32 foot TT http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh119/ReneeG_photo/PA010090.jpg width=640 http://i254.photobucket.com/albums/hh119/ReneeG_photo/P9300082.jpg width=640 disregard the formatting notes. Something funky with pulling in photos, but at least the photos showed up.

RE: Got the old girl home from winter storage

Hoorah! I love the photo of your tot enjoying herself at play in it! We de-winterized ours this past weekend. Did a check of all the systems and appliances. At the end DH said, "I have good news and I have bad news." So, I said, "ok, tell me." He says, "Good news is, it's all done and ready to go. Bad news, we can't go because we have to work tomorrow!"
