RE: Snow birds and their RV size

I have some friends that snowbird, they bought a used TT and leave it in Florida and don't pull back and forth any more. they have a TT at home to use during the summer, he said he should have done it years ago, I think it is pretty common for folks that just are in it to escape the winter and not so much to see the country.

RE: How hot is too hot

I have a full range of gauges on my truck, My rule of thumb is when you see 250 on any fliud guage it is time to try something different. I have seen 280* on trans temps and when I changed the fluid it smelled burnt. I have seen 280* on coolant and things were getting tense.

RE: outdoor kitchens

I will answer like I should have in my first post. My wife wanted it, and I have done things to make her happy for over 30 years.

RE: outdoor kitchens

reason 1. When we bought our 2017 it was on the must have list, when we camp about 1/3 of the time our kids and grandkids are there, If my wife misses one special moment because she is in the camper cooking that would make her sad.....I don't want a sad wife. reason 2. Other times we camp with friends and we are always sitting around the fire and talking and having a good time, I didn't want her to miss any of that. reason 3. we are bird watchers and quite a few times she will be making coffie, breakfast and such when a bird we have never seen comes blasting through camp....another miss for momma. thats all I got. Quick observation...why is it that your wife does all the cooking?? That should be a shared chore while relaxing at a campsite. But that is just my opinion and not meant to offend. I have an out kitchen and love it. Your quick observation was not well thought out, as it would be hard to grill a steak over an open fire inside the camper... She does the sides, I do the meat. and your observation WAS ment to offend or you would have kept it to your self. like saying sorry to say this but I am going to say it anyway. BAZINGA ! ! ! !

RE: Things I'm starting to notice / hate about camping In a TT

It's ashamed you live in a country where folks can do what they enjoy, maybe you should try somewhere that tells you how and when to live and enjoy things. sounds like you have a low tollerance for people and dogs. PS if you ever camp beside me.....make sure to keep your kids quiet.

RE: One of the many reasons I R.V.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^ are you sure. we feel like hotels are not clean, so we keep 2 thin sleeping bags in the TT just incase we need to stay at one. My budy and our 2 sons took a 9 day motorcycle trip down the BRP in the summer of last year, we stayed in a chain motel and I swear it looked like there was .......well.......lots of DNA on the wall by the bed, it was very hard to stay there. then we stayed in a tiny little 6 room place...Tuggles gap hotel, in Virginia right on the BRP, it looked very sketchy but I felt a lot better staying there than the sperm bank place.

RE: Yellowstone Web Cam - looks too crowded:)

I pull up all the Yellowstone webcams every day and have for 6-7 years, at the noonish gusher there is always people there year round, even when it is -20 the snowmobile people are there, each day when I sit down at my desk I pull up the webcams and Yosemite, Yellowstone, My Rainier, and Glacier, just to check out the weather conditions, some days it really makes me want to be there, like when the Yosemite falls are really roaring, or there has been a fresh couple feet of snow on Rainier. Some mornings there are 10-15 Bison walking around Old Faithfull, thats a treat.

RE: Would a carrier on front of truck like this work?

If it fits......It ships. One thing about a rig like that, YOU be the first one to the crash. joking aside, I have seen a lot of folks put a hitch rack on the front and have 3-500lbs on it and maybe more. dirt bikes, genys and 55gl water tanks.

RE: Where to go for kids spring break in 3 weeks

If the kids like outdoor stuff So.IL would be good, lots af waterfalls, burdenfalls, jackson falls, trigg tower, bellsmith springs, dixon springs, garden of the Gods, pounds hollow, giant city park, (good food at the lodge ). If they are not into outdoors, St.Louis would be the ticket, lots of things to do go up in the arch if you go there, and lots and lots of good food, Cohokia mounds is an awesome spot for kids, six flags, graints farm, the science center is a must for smaller kids. You could also spend 1/2 the time in one place and move to the other as they are only 2 1/2 hours apart.

RE: Dometic refrigerator

it is hard to tell with your hand, check and see what the temp really is. I always feel like ours is not that cold but it will freeze the stuff on the top shelf.

RE: First Time Travel Trailer Purchase

If your not apposed to expandables a flagstaff Shamrock 183 or Starcraft Travel Star 207TRB look good for your needs. The Starcraft has a nice big dinette and a good shower with hard doors, hard doors was a must for us, no more shower curtin.

RE: First Time Travel Trailer Purchase

Make a list of all the wants/needs and when looking on something like RV traider put them all in the search, we do this every time and you can narrow down the possibilities, you can not research to much, I spent a few months looking and had it down to 3 models, it takes some stress of looking at 3 as apposed to 1,500. It sounds like you have a list of wants so the search will be easy, don't worry much about the brand as mentioned there is not 5 cents difference in them all. I would keep the max loaded weight below 7,500 if you can.

RE: We Pick Up our TT on Tuesday!

Congrats ! ! ! camping has been part of my life for 40 years, it is great to be outside but with the comfort of having a dry warm/cool place to sleep. number one on that list..... don't forget the ever important pre-take off walk-around, both from home and the CG. I have found many pre desasters just from this alone. check everything like power coards, water hose, stabalizer jacks, hitch, tv antenna is down, vents are closed, dogs/kids are in the truck, all gear is loaded. I ripped off an antenna from a motorhome once. my friends are full timmers and it is his hobby to walk around a site after the campers leave to see what all they left, he has thought about writing a book on it, or starting an e-bay store. nothing like camping in your favorite spot with quiet neighbors. have fun and be careful and safe.
