RE: RV Parks in Oregon,Washington,Canada

Getting into a spot in a Oregon State Park on the coast with a 40 ft 5'er is also going to be a bit of a challenge. With our 40' motorhome and Jeep we've stayed at these state parks Beverly Beach, Bullards Beach, Cape Blanco, Carl Washburne, Fort Stevens and Harris Beach. Washburne & Cape Blanco don't even accept reservations. We loved Cape Blanco - awesome beach and definitely not crowded! Even though the others accept reservations we didn't have one. We traveled mid-week and pulled in early when folks just left. Ya I think a motorhome can get in. A long 5th wheel has got a bit less maneuverability then a big motorhome. I think we are about 62 ft long counting the truck.

RE: RV Parks in Oregon,Washington,Canada

Getting spot in Oregon State Park on the coast during summer is getting harder and harder - especially for multi day stay. Best chance is to wait until school is back in session. You should be able to find a spot in Sept without reservation so long as your not trying to stay on a weekend. Getting into a spot in a Oregon State Park on the coast with a 40 ft 5'er is also going to be a bit of a challenge. When we had our pickup camper and the price was $17 we stayed at the Oregon State Parks a lot. We have driven through some of the same parks and picturing having our 42 ft 5'er behind us. The trees are close and if there is a tow vehicle part way in the road, we would not be able to go through without them moving. Winchester Bay RV resort is a nice park. So is Turtle Rock. in Newport there is the Port of Newport’s South Beach Marina & RV Park . It's a lot of pavement, but the location is great. Astoria, Oregon is a very interesting town. Lots of history. Fort Stevens State Park is an exception to the too small for bigger rigs rule. In Astoria; go to the Columbia River Maritime Museum . That's enough for now. KEN

RE: RV Parks in Oregon,Washington,Canada

Hello All. This forum provided us great information for our Utah trip this year which we returned last August. Next year we want to go North to Oregon, Washington and Canada. -First stop will be in Ashland, Oregon area (visit family) - Then head North to Redmond, Washington (visit family) - Then on to Canada.( to where we don't know yet) Then on way back we will probably head South on I5 then to the Oregon Coast. We will travel in August and September. Any and all RV Park recommendations would be appreciated. We are traveling with a 40' 5th wheel. If I need to provide additional information I can, just let me know. I will print out all responses. Thank you in advance. I haven't stayed here yet, but I have heard it is nice. Ashland area Emigrant-Lake Try to stay off I-5 as much as you can in Oregon to see the real Oregon. 97 going north and 101 going south would be better scenery. If you go up to Crater Lake from Ashland; DO NOT take 66 with the 5'er. Highway 62 would be less of a grade. In Prospect, Oregon is an rv park. It's close to the south entrance to Crater Lake NP. Leave the RV in Prospect or Diamond Lake.

RE: After the fatal accident: Our recovery and insurance issues

Are you taking a 2 week vacation or 2 months?

RE: AT&T Mobley stopped working -- SOLVED

I'm using my Mobley right now, but I have had dropouts on occasion such as you described. Whenever it occurs, a simple cold boot/power cycle has corrected the problem. Sometimes it comes back on its own after several minutes... Ditto 67 g usage last month. Lots of Netflix.

RE: Alaska Trip 2017' - Larson's Epic Adventure TR - (Part 4)

Going to Alaska is not just a rv vacation. It's an adventure. You never know what you are going to see or what might happen (especially on a motorcycle). I fixed the pics by skipping Photobucket. I have 1,000's of pictures in photobucket and they won't let you share them any more without paying a huge fee. Luckily I still have all the pictures on some thumb drives.

RE: How to rig a rain tarp without trees -- poles, maybe??

Ken, I am impressed -- you sound like you have actually tied a Prusik, and until today I had never heard of such a thing! I would probably use paracord for the Prusik. (I always carry a duffel bag full of various kinds of rope and cord in my truck, so I will experiment.) The paracord might have a hard time coming loose when you are done. I like braided nylon cord. 1/4" or 3/8" would be better. 1/2" or so for your ridge rope. The para-cord should work for your guy lines.

RE: eastern Oregon roads

Profdant, it is to keep the snow from sticking to the windshield. If it was not warm, nothing would melt, therefore nothing would freeze to it. The snow will just flow over your rig. //KMac Wouldn't it depend on the outside temperature? A cold dry snow would be gone, bet a wet snow would be sticking no mater what.

RE: Alaska Trip 2017' - Larson's Epic Adventure TR - (Part 4)

Thanks for sharing all the great photos. Brings back some great memories of my motorcycle trip up to Fairbanks from Oregon. We went down to Haines to get on the ferry to go to Juno and Prince Rupert. We also went down to Valdez. https://i.imgur.com/jT87hNNl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/JU9NDT4l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ucB8jiDl.jpg Updated

RE: Camping is popular

I've got our reservations for News Years week at Neskowin RV Resort. I'm betting some of the campers that are registered at Champoeg State Park are visiting family in the PDX area.

RE: How to rig a rain tarp without trees -- poles, maybe??

Larger PVC is a great idea for poles. It wasn't available for my scouting years. Using a prusik; the cord that you make the prusik with needs to be 1/3rd the size of the rope you are going to rap. Please post you new tarp setup in this thread if you can. Thanks, KEN

RE: eastern Oregon roads

I'm still working. Today's work was driving over Willamette Pass (58) to 97 from the Eugene area to fix some laundry equipment in Central Oregon area. 58 was wet, 34*F with maybe 4" of roadside snow. Returning to the Eugene area on Santiam Pass (20 to 126) it was also wet and 36*F with close to a foot of roadside snow. It looks like an early winter is coming to Oregon. Safe travels, KEN

RE: Grand Design Momentum?

I too purchased a 2016 380TH Grand Design Momentum. We didn't want the longer garage ( ours is 10ft for the Victory Motorcycle). We looked on and off for 3 years before deciding on the 380TH (a model that is not made any more).

RE: How to rig a rain tarp without trees -- poles, maybe??

firemedic, I am talking about a really big rain tarp -- I've seen them set up at about 20 feet by 40 feet, with the central rope at a diagonal across the tarp. It forms a roof that sheds water and keeps the whole campsite dry. Those small gazebos don't have a big enough "footprint." Keep those ideas coming! Maybe helium balloons?? I was the king of tarps back when I was a Scoutmaster.I am Oregon bred on the wet side of the Cascades. To put a a big tarp like you are talking about; you will need trees or something tall that you can put the ridge rope over at both ends. Most poles will not be strong enough. HERE is a bunch of pictures of tarps

RE: Ramp Door Patio

Hi Folks. Just a reminder that the Forum Rules prohibit wanted and for sale posts. Keep it to PMs please. Thanks. I have no idea what you are talking about. There is nothing for sale in this thread.

RE: Your Favorite Boondocking Pics

ORbiker, you probably already know this, but there is some big rig friendly back road boondocking off of Highway 97, in the area around Crescent and Chemult. Also take a look near the north entrance to Crater Lake, in the national forest. Wide gravel roads, lots of places to turn around, plenty of good riding. Yes 139 I know of many places to camp in that area. There is no reason for me to primitive camp because I have a membership at Cascade Meadows RV Resort. 2 weeks for free w/full hookup. Maybe once we go full time we might use a boondock site near there to camp for our week out before going back to the park. There is a nice spot just east of Cascade Meadows about 2 miles that has 3 or so free spots near a little creek.

RE: Wireless Reverse Camera Questions

I did a Garmin and mounted a booster partway to the front of our 42' 5'er. The camera came with the 760 GPS from Costco.

RE: Your Favorite Boondocking Pics

I haven't been brave enough to go on the back roads yet with our 42' f'er. I have done lots of boondockin' via my different motorcycles over the years. Once you get east of the Mississippi it's pretty hard to fine even a reasonable priced tent site. I have boondocked at Little Nash Sno-park in Oregon. Most of the sno-parks are BIG rig friendly. https://i.imgur.com/mLimPqml.jpg (trying the pic link)
