RE: 10 days VS 12 minutes

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."

RE: Mesa Verde for 1 day...what to see

The new visitor center opened at the base of the hill in the last two years. They can tell you your options. I'd at least go to Spruce Tree House, the Chapin Mesa Museum, and drive the Mesa Top Loop. It's a fascinating place.

RE: Emails from RVParkReviews.com

I'm also grateful for the work you RVPV admins do, since I use the site when planning every trip. I really like the feature at the top right where you can click on nearby towns with the distance/direction indicated. I also noticed a mistake once where someone obviously had posted erroneous info about a campground and it was acknowledged and fixed very quickly. Only once have I been the first person ever to post a review! I got kind of a kick out of putting in all the info, map location, etc. - for a real gem way off the beaten path in Newfoundland (which is way off to begin with) with a spectacular sea view. Made me feel great to share it on the site since it took me forever to find anywhere to stay in that locale.

RE: Mild Rant. Don't Any of You Take care of your RV?

If they look that bad where you can see it, you probably get a good idea of how poorly the engine and other systems may have been maintained. We looked at our RV offered used by a private seller a few miles from us, and were impressed by the like-new immaculate interior condition. A guy who owned a garage nearby made a passing comment that "he (the owner) takes very good care of his vehicles." Must have been true, since we never had a problem. A real estate agent once told me she often saw high dollar houses for sale, filthy with dishes piled up, trash and bugs everywhere. Then the owners wonder why no one's interested.

RE: Hidden Treasure in NC mountains

I like the creekside sites at Creekwood Farm in Waynesville, NC near Maggie Valley. Close to Great Smoky Mtn NP.

RE: Able to handle dirt roads other than a Sportsmobile.

We've carefully taken our B down many dirt/rough roads in Newfoundland and the American Southwest - around Moab...Cajon (outlying ruins grouped with Hovenweep National Monument)...Chaco Canyon. Some of those roads will shake the fillings out of your teeth, but the van emerged unscathed. Of course, conversions have stuff hanging beneath you don't want to damage. Our ground clearance is 8.5" at the lowest point (sewer pipe) and 12" at the back. If I were planning to do extensive rough road travel, I'd look at a Tiger. Pricier than many of the Bs, though.

RE: Smokey Mtn Nat Pk in Oct.

Surprised how in demand everything is that week. What is goin on that I don't know about? Guess we will find out when we get there. Autumn colors in America's most visited National Park. Short window of opportunity.

RE: Just Have To Vent, Thank You ...............

I've been remembering a similar experience once at a rally in a nice campground where everybody else could get online but I couldn't with my former laptop. Several other campers took a look and none of us could figure it out. It worked fine elsewhere before and after that. I'm kind of impressed that the campground you've mentioned sent two different people to try and help you. Seriously, does that really sound like a dishonest place that denied responsibility, did nothing and could have cared less? Hope you'll have smooth sailing, wifi-wise, from now on.

RE: Just Have To Vent, Thank You ...............

I agree with Lantley's two posts. Wifi that works is a bonus in a campground, but if it doesn't on the day I'm there, I would not accuse the owners of dishonesty. That's a bit strong especially since several previous RV Park reviews this year before your review said that the Wifi worked fine. I also need a wifi signal for my work so I do not depend on campground wifi as my only option.

RE: another newbie needs advice

Welcome to the forum. You may want to ask the moderator to move your post to the Class C forum since I think the Phoenix Cruisers are not class A. Might get more views from PC owners there. Sounds like a great plan. We bought used, and it definitely is a viable option that can work well for someone handy with tools. Your boating experience will help, too. So many little glitches are easy to fix but very pricey in an RV shop. Have fun!

RE: Can we expect these shenanigans?

I kind of like paying only for what I use. I wouldn't stay at a place with a resort fee and no opt-out - unless I planned to use those amenities. Usually reading the website eliminates check-in surprises. I don't think this is particularly new. We've stayed at about 100 private and public campgrounds the past four years, and paid extra in any one given place for: Wifi Water/electric and maybe sewer (versus a dry site) Location by a creek or other preferred spot Laundry machines Showers Pancake breakfast Guided tour Etc. etc. The other campers at the same places who didn't need those things paid less than I did. Seems fair. Just like I thought it was fair for me not to pay at a place with a charge to use a huge inflatable water slide this summer. The guest fee is smart management IMHO, since the same rule would apply to all including the local guy who books a site with the idea of inviting 10 - 20 friends and relatives over for a pool party and cookout next to your site.

RE: Dead Horse State Park - Utah (Moab Area)

We stayed there in 2011 and enjoyed it (full name is Dead Horse Point SP). The overlook of the bend in the Colorado River is spectacular, and a lot of campers go back to the point for sunset there. You can walk from the campground to a small visitor center. Some sites are not level, but the staff members when we were there were very willing to offer another option for a switch.

RE: "The beach was too sandy."

I managed an American Express office in Chevy Chase, Md., back in the 1980s until the wealthy clients drove me crazy. One young lady returned from her trip to St.Maarten and came by to lodge a serious complaint that there were too many fat people on the beach at the resort.

RE: Yellowstone-Canyon Village & Fishing Bridge

They are both well-located, fairly close together.. you can tour the north part of the park from Canyon and the southern part from FB. FB is so often described on this forum as a parking lot and it is true that it is paved. But I was surprised at how many trees surround it. Deer and Bison strolled through. It's not a wilderness disbursed camping environment, but is actually a nicer setting than some NP campgrounds we've seen. Enjoy!

RE: Anyonr cancel reservations for state park in the Keys?

Some folks do post here as they prepare to cancel (that's how we got a week at Pennekamp a few years ago), but it's a long shot. You'll have better luck checking the Keys SPs online every day for the odd cancellation, even a day here and there. And once you are there and set up, talk to the ranger staff - it is sometimes possible to get cancellations at the park itself beyond that first night you booked, even for two weeks.

RE: Gulf Stream BT Cruiser

We looked at about the same unit, test drove, and liked it a lot. The deal killer was some obvious carpet staining from leaks.

RE: No RV'er wave?

We give and get a lot of waves from Sprinter class B RVers. Easy to recognize by shape as they approach. Often rest stop, parking lot, campground cameraderie, too.

RE: 2001 RT D190P awning removal

I'm always interested that so many people never use their awnings on class Bs. (We do fairly often.) After a while, it sure does make sense to remove heavy or bulky stuff including table tops plus the stuff just sitting in compartments when you realize you've never used it. Great for better fuel mileage. We have a friend with an Itasca Navion C who removed all kinds of stuff including the bed parts from the sofa. Can always go back in when time to sell.
