RE: New purchaser Pleasure Way Plateau TS 2006

It's going to turn out to be trial & error - most B vans have cabinets fitted into curves, around pipes and tanks, and odd available space (not many square boxes) so probably would be tricky to give real-world dimensions without drawings. Your first couple of trips will reveal what really works for placing your stuff. Part of the fun for us was adding hooks, a shelf or slide-out drawer to maximize deep storage, or finding a plastic bin that exactly fit.

RE: 2014 Navion IQ being repurchased as a LEMON

Welcome to the forum. Hope you will post again when you replace your RV. Glad you had good support from Mercedes despite the hassles getting it resolved.

RE: What's the best deal you've gotten on a campground?

Riana Campground (COE) at Abiquiu Lake, northern New Mexico in Georgia O'Keeffe country. $16 a night with electric, flush toilets, showers, very large RV parking pad sites with separate area for covered picnic table and fire ring. Reserve America books it. As card-carrying geezers, of course, we paid $8 a night last October. Love the views there of Mt Pedernal above the lake. O'Keeffe loved to hike and camp there and directed that her ashes be spread there. The countryside scenery is wonderful, and you can reserve ahead to tour the artist's two homes.

RE: How Many RV'ers are also Nautical Buffs Too?

In the 1980s - We had an old used 22' North American inboard fishing boat and kept it at Ocean City, Md. Great times running around the bay and down to Assateague to anchor for picnics. Cheap, solid, forgiving, best boat we ever had. That led to a 28’ cabin cruser bought new that we kept on the Chesapeake Bay. Great times cruising the big bay for weekends to the little Eastern Shore towns. Lots of raft-ups, great memories. The last one was a used 24’ sailboat when we lived in the Caribbean. Didn't use it much after my significant other's wrist surgery. A storm took it off the moorings and into some rocks while we were off island, end of that story. Great times. The truth is - I like RVing better. I think it's the solid ground beneath you that appeals to me.

RE: Twelfth Annual RV.net Class B Rally (B12)

Always wanted to attend this, and now we are. Looking forward to meeting everybody in person. Thanks, Asheguy, for letting me know it's almost in our back yard for 2015.

RE: Campground Report: Parkside Campground, Red Lodge, Montana

We stayed in Parkside last September on a rainy Labor Day night before heading into Yellowstone and were almost the only people there. Nice, quiet woods. Enjoyed the town of Red Lodge, with lots of handwritten signs in store windows thanking firefighters - fires came pretty close last year.

RE: Winnebago rolls again?

The "Silver Tsunami" (aka baby boom or Pig-in-a-Python) is real and will be around for another 15-20 years or so. We are part of the first wave, 1946-47. When we began phasing in our retirement, the Great Recession hit. Like most older people, we recognized that we had at best a window of 10-20 years (if we are really lucky) to get on with it instead of talking about seeing what's out there. Buying a used RV instead of wringing our hands was the best investment decision we ever made. On about every trip, we meet active new retirees who are putting a chunk of cash into brand new RVs and having just as much fun as we are.

RE: Ratings of Parks

Welcome to the forum. Another option you have, in addition to the great advice given above, is to post the name of a campground in the title of a new thread. You may be surprised - sometimes another person is there right now, or just left, or otherwise can give good feedback.

RE: I-95 to Key West, FL

I cross from I-95 to the TPK at Jupiter. Don't even think about I-95 to US-1 thru FLL and MIA. Totally agree.

RE: coach house 192 TB

Welcome to the forum, Marlene. I think you'd enjoy a class B van since you already know you enjoy RVing. Bs are great for one or two people, and we often meet solo women travelers in B vans. Coach House has a good reputation for quality. Without a lot of mechanical savvy, I'd hesitate to buy a 17 year old RV, though. Rather than put $18.5 thousand into an older van plus updates to various systems, I might be inclined to look at something new and under warranty like a Travato. You already know that no RV is trouble free. But a newer one might give you a little more peace of mind if you plan to eventually hit the highway for long trips.

RE: Nine week trip around the Gaspe", into NB, and NS

Thanks for a great trip report, Lizzie. Sounds like a marvelous time. It has been so hot and humid all summer down here, good choice to head north! We had planned something similar but since we now have a 60lb Lab on board, decided to stay closer to home and make this summer's trip shorter. Only got as far N as Niagara Falls, three weeks total. I'm making notes for places you stayed for our Gaspe trip in the future. We loved all the Atlantic provinces when we visited in 2012, and will definitely return for a full summer with at least six weeks in Newfoundland next time, (after our whirlwind first trip, just three weeks in NL when we got to meet all the relatives who live there).

Always. My favorite is standin on a corner in Winslow, Arizona.

RE: I-95 to Key West, FL

At Florida City where Florida's Turnpike ends before you head into the Keys there are quite a few stations. We check Gas Buddy and see who has the best diesel price before we get there, Today, for example, a Shell is $3.71 vs $3.75++ for other stations.

RE: North Carolina ocean front campgrounds

Holiday Travel Park on Emerald Isle, NC if you want something closer to the mainland than the Outer Banks. Pricey. Below Cape Lookout. Lots of family activities, restaurants, etc nearby. Ocean Waves to the north out on the banks is a good value, a bit quieter.

RE: Colorado State Parks

Sorry to hear. Everybody was very nice last September when we stayed there, never any problems. Very nice park, great location near CO National Monument.

RE: 10 days VS 12 minutes

You might ask her to assist in checking your spam filter. When you don't receive replies from companies' email addresses you've never used before, sometimes your email provider has automatically filtered them out into the junk folder.

RE: Admit something silly or embarrassing you've done

We pulled into a grocery store parking lot in Maine or somewhere, and a couple had just expressed curiosity about the interior of or class B, so we gave them a tour. Shortly after they left, a man approached ... I proudly offered, "Would you like to see the inside, too?" To which he replied, "No, I just wondered if you knew your antenna was still up."
