RE: Can we all agree?

It's really easy to tell the difference : if the thread is in the Class A forum it's a tow vehicle, otherwise it's a television.

RE: Looking for a toad vehical

Here are a few toweds I found listed on Escapees: 2008 Honda CR-V He may be a bit overpriced, NADA says should be around $8,500 2003 Jeep Liberty No price posted but he's located in New Jersey That's all from Escapees, let me know if you want me to find more listings in other places.

RE: Looking for a toad vehical

If you're looking for something comparable to your Saturn, you might want to look at an older Honda CR-V. Even though they are classified as an SUV, they ride like a car.

RE: RV caravans

We did the Alaska caravan run by SMART in 2013. Never again! Poorly run, disorganized and led by a lazy wagon master and an incompetent tail gunner. Just to add to the entertainment :R about two weeks into the trip the wagon master and tail gunner started a feud with each other and spent the rest of the trip not speaking. Most of the participants were medically fragile and the staff refused to give them the support they needed. Some of the people we met were very nice, others not so much. Several have since died, so they were able to check off a bucket list item before they checked out. My observation was that if you join a caravan, you'll meet lots of people that have all the independence of a flock of baby ducks. :B

RE: Ovenight in a Truck Stop

I have posted on this subject before. I do long distance driving in the summer months. This year finding a place to park has been pure hell. In some areas the Truck Stops fill up before noon. Makes it very hard to find a good spot for the night. We are limited to 11 hours of actual driving. Plus you must take a half hour break before your first 8 hours has passed. Parking is so scarce there was just a National Conference on this subject. The problem is serious enough that the industry is worried it will affect the economy. I 5 in Washington is one of the worst. Even the rest areas are filled very early. Imagine how I felt when I pulled into a TA and there were 2 motorhomes parked in the truck areas. One was an expensive bus conversion and the other a DP. Folks these RV'rs have no good reason to be taking up those spaces. Yes, TA or the J does not care who parks on the lot but common sense and decency tell me it is: Rude, Ignorant, Selfish and just wrong . The truck drivers are trying to make a living and follow the regulations. The RV'rs are supposed to be enjoying themselves. Spend the $$ and go to a CG!!!!!! Or go to a Wal Mart. Moisheh That is why I never have and never will park in truck parking. I stay in campgrounds when I find one that can accommodate my rig, otherwise it's Wallydocking. But please spread the word among professional drivers to leave the RV parking for RVers. Some rest areas and truck stops (Flying J) have parking separate from truck parking reserved for RVs. I frequently see trucks in these spots. So remember, courtesy goes both ways.

RE: "Don't Buy New"

I bought the bus in my signature very well used. I prefer new but hubby and I couldn't afford a professionally converted bus new.

RE: Have you ever camped in a cemetery??

You shouldn't park overnight in a cemetery, you'll be taken out by the first wave in the Zombie Apocalypse!

RE: towed mileage

My 2014 Honda CR-V, 2008 Mini and 2011 Ford Ranger all do not accumulate mileage while being towed.

RE: Boondocking communities other than Q and Slabs?

If you join the Boondocker's BOF in Escapees (SKP) they probably know all the best info.

RE: Grand Canyon Railway

RE: RV washing...why not just call the park. there is no (listed) direct number & the reservation agent/service didnt know.....and its not listed (as prohibited) on their web pages....SO THAT IS WHY I'M HERE. Ive even talked to friends that stayed there & they don't remember...SO THATS WHY IM HERE. the same thing occurred to us at Trailer Village - no one knew....and when we pulled up their rules (listed in the office) prohibit washing of vehicles. 1-800-THE TRAIN I doubt they allow RV washing. This is the only park in which I've stayed that required the stinky slinky to elevate your sewer hose, even though it is over rocks. You can always do it the way I do: spot clean with Windex. Never had a problem.

RE: I call BS!

I wouldn't call BS, you don't know what stories he had to convince himself to believe in order to go camping. Likewise, I don't call BS on even the most blatent gas mileage lies. ;)

RE: Paper maps vs GPS

It may be "easier" to crack a nut with your teeth, but once you master using a nutcracker you won't go back. As with any tool, including GPS, first you have to learn to use it.

RE: Looking at Winnebago View

We own a View and took it on a four month trip to Alaska in 2013. We towed a small car and averaged over 14 mpg. It was the hubby, me and our two cats on the trip. We did not feel cramped and as you can see by my sig, we know how a large RV feels. :)

RE: Why did you stop full time rving?

We full timed for about four years but we missed our toys. Bought a house, built a big garage and now are most timers. ;)

RE: FMCA Website

Funny thing that this was asked in the tow vehicles forum since FMCA doesn't allow towables. You don't want us in your group.....don't be asking questions in our forum...:M I had to go look up FMCA :h for a minute I thought it was FMCSA :S which would have been real interesting on a RV forum :E I hope you get your exclusive site up and running soon :B Did you read the previous posts?

RE: Border closing 12-8am

If the Canadian border crossing is closed, what's to stop people from driving the wrong way and going back in through the out door? :C No border checkpoint into Hyder, it was destroyed by Hyder residents decades ago.
