I already signed the petition because of a notice I received thru SEMA. The Marines say they really don't need it, so I had no problem signing to protect the privileges of off roaders and campers out west. I can only hope the off roaders and campers will do the same for the hot rodders when the government wants to hammer on us!
We had to have pretty much the same roof repair/replacement done to our 33' 5th wheel. The material to replace the rubber roof,2 new sheets of plywood,enough 1/4" luan to deck over the original plywood, new insulation to replace what got wet, and a new skylight for the shower came to around $1600. The guy who did ours did a fantastic job, and the total for material and labor was $3300. I saw what all he had to do, and he earned his $1700 in labor! Unless your RV is a little bitty 18-20' class C, $3500 isn't a bad price if you can't or don't want to do it yourself. Good luck.
I put my Companion in per instructions, and take it out in reverse order. It's hauled our 5th wheel (a heavy Sunnybrook) thousands of miles, and the Companion has never even scuffed the Rhinoliner under it. Something is definately wrong with dudes hitch installation!
Our first trip in our new (to us)camper was to Ft. Wilderness. We stayed on the 1100 loop, and walked to our bus stop in about 2 minutes. Then it took maybe 4 or 5 minutes to get to the boat launch to go to Magic Kingdom. With Disney providing transportation to any of their facilities on a regular schedule, you don't have to worry about driving anywhere. Unless you are disabled, you more than likely won't need a golf cart. The bath houses are nicer than any you will find! Air conditioned,ceramic tile, big shower stalls, and VERY clean.A street sweeper comes around about twice a day, and it is the cleanest and nicest campground I have ever seen. Good luck on your trip, and have fun!
If you're lucky, it will have a B&W Turnover Ball gooseneck hitch in it. Like was mentioned above....if that's the case, just buy a B&W Companion 5th wheel hitch. I have one, and wouldn't trade it for anything! Look on Craiglist for a good deal on used ones.
Here is the Official Walmart Web site where they list the Stores that DO NOT ALLOW overnight parking.
My experience is go in and ask the manager and buy something and they may do an exception.
Not sure who the publisher is, and where they get their information on no-park walmarts. I did an overnight at the Bleachery Street in Ashville NC. It's on the list. In the morning we saw 5 other RVs in the lot. Felt right at home.
I live in Asheville, and have noticed that all the Wal Marts in our area have "No overnight parking" signs posted on about every street light pole in the place. I think the store on Bleachery blvd. got some squatters that moved in and put up a mail box out front! My wife & I used to check out all the RV's there when we went shopping. Haven't seen any there in months though.
