RE: Rear Corner Bed- bothersome?

We also wanted a permanent bed "downstairs" in our C, so that meant a corner unless we got a much longer unit. I sleep on the outside and rarely get up so it works for me. Only thing I don't like is the wall is COLD in the winter but that is not the beds fault.

RE: Wheel base

I would always pick the model I could live that had the shortest possible rear overhang. IMHO a major drawback on longer C rigs. I also think that at the size you are considering your will be limiting your park access some and would be better off with an A. By no means am I saying your choice is wrong. It just wouldn't be right for me.

RE: Old style tarp/dining fly/awning set ups

Thanks for the replies. I do consider myself on the "less motivated" side of things but the EZ up style shelters just don't work for me. They are heavy, don't pack that small, are a pain to put up alone, (at least for me) and have too many pinch points. Due to damage I'm going to have to remove the old awning and arms from the Duck and it doesn't make much economic sense to replace it at this point. That is what got me thinking along these lines. PS. Thanks for the links too.

Old style tarp/dining fly/awning set ups

Today I see lots of folks using the 10'x10' EZ up style awnings. I also see the ultra light backpack crowd using Sil nylon and hiking sticks. But doesn't any one pitch a good old fashioned "dining fly" any more? Remember, 3-5 adjustable height poles, all with guy lines staked out. Can't remember the last time I saw the old adjustable poles or even a fly that wasn't designed for backpacking. Maybe I'm just getting old.

RE: Coastal Maine campground recommendations

They only accept tents, PUPS, and TCs (no dually) and no generators but if that describes you I suggest you look at Hermit Island Campground, Phippsburg, ME. It is right on Casco Bay and quite rustic. PS. I'm not sure about vans. At one time they did allow but not currently listed. I'd call in check if you have a B. Or pack a tent.

RE: MH or TT

I don't like to sit one place for a long time unless there is lots to do (hiking trails or diy hiking) Isn't all hiking DIY? :B I like a motorhome for traveling, everything is accessible while on the road. Especially when you're sitting in a several hour traffic backup. If you're staying at a location for long periods, I think a TT is a better choice. Good thought on the hybrid. Limit for GC towing is 3500# so in the past I've looked at the likes of R-pods, A-liners, T@B, etc. I'm OK with a small TT or hybrid, as long as it is usable with the bunks in. Would probably like an egg but hard to pull the trigger without visiting a few. I'm see some old Bolers in places I didn't think a goat could get to.

RE: MH or TT

Thanks for the quick replies. Although I like TCs the climb in is more than the DW desires. The ol' Runny Duck is only 24' so we too go toadless. I've got an 2006 Grand Cherokee w/ tow package that is low miles and great shape for a tow vehicle if I go that route. If I bought a trailer it would have to be nice enough for the wife and still rugged enough for at least mild off road use. Sorta leaning away from a PUP although we've used one before. IMHO not practical for roadside overnights. Please keep all thoughts coming. Thanks.

RE: Pilot Flying J question

I use PFJ almost exclusively when traveling, both with the MH and when car camping. The only caveat I would add is not all truck stops are the same. The locations that were originally Flying J locations are usually better suited for RVs than Pilot truck stops. Many Pilots have small lots and limited maneuvering/parking if you have a gas rig. I have gas and still prefer to use PFJ though. I have one convenient to home base and the services and locations have worked out well so far.

MH or TT

I know that any RV can be used for boondocking; be it public lands, wally world, truck stops, etc. But which do most prefer, the MH or TT? My only experience has been with my old Class C and I'm thinking about my next purchase. Thanks for everyone's input.

RE: Northeast RV Shows

Central NJ show is this weekend. CNY show at NYS Fairgrounds in Syracuse is in March. I haven't been to NJ in a few years but it was decent. The Syracuse show is 3-4 buildings every year and IMO well worth it. Downside is that although there are easily 100+ units to see, the number of actual dealers will be less than a dozen.

RE: Pilot/Flying J loyalty card...Again

Anyone ever use the "Professional Driver" loyalty cards from either PFJ or the TA/Petro, Love's etc. Seems like there may be some benefit to it but wouldn't want to be dishonest either.

RE: Pilot/Flying J loyalty card...Again

The discount card just knocks the price down to the same as the independent station down the street. I use FJ because they are a known quantity -- I know I can maneuver my rig in and out. The smaller stations maybe or maybe not. I hear that a lot but at least in my area NY/PA that has not been the case. PFJ are very competitive and often cheapest before any discount. Thanks everyone for their replies. I should have also added that while I also have the RVPlus credit card I like to pay cash whenever possible. I also don't currently belong to GS or have their Swipe & Save card. Hence the loyalty card. Since between work and play I stop at the PFJ quite a bit, not having the in store perks bugs me.

Pilot/Flying J loyalty card...Again

Just got off the phone with PFJ customer service and can't get a straight answer. Curious if anyone else knows. To start off, I am talking about the MyRewards or Frequent Fueler Advantage Program; NOT the RVPlus credit card. I noticed that while my PFJ loyalty card is still providing me discounts at the pump, it no longer works for any in store purchases or at the restaurants. When I asked Customer Service they said they did away with the RV program "a couple years ago" and they don't know why the card still works. However, when you go to the MyRewards website there is still references to RV card holders all over it. And the PFJ app still has a section for RVers. I when I log into my account it still lists the services and discounts available. So I am confused. Anyone have additional information.

RE: Oops!

Thanks for the words of support and advice. I'll keep everyone up to date on the project.

Well, I succeeded in ripping the rear bottom awning support bracket off the side of the old Runny Duck today. She has been sitting in the rear corner of the driveway all season and other than having been started once in a while we haven't been able to take her out at all this year. Money, college, work commitments all conspired against us. While she sat, she settled a little and wound up with a slight list to curbside. When I went to move her for winterizing I snagged the tree with the awning support as I tried to inch her out of her predicament. The awning isn't ripped and is still in place, but the bottom bracket pulled completely loose, leaving a nice buckle in the side and two jagged holes where it was bolted in. I guess at this point the only option is to remove the awning completely and bondo the holes for now. I'm not in a position to replace the ol' Duck yet financially but really how much money do I want to spend on a 28 yr old rig? I was already kicking myself for kind of ignoring her this season and now this. Karma I guess. Or simple stupidity.
