RE: New Mexico

Not sure about weather in Northern NM then but here are a few favorites. Santa Fe: we've stayed at Trailer Ranch in town twice and enjoyed it (adults only.) On a bus line with frequent service, so you can leave the RV parked and have no parking hassles. Bus takes you to the Plaza, also the Farmers Market en route. Taos: We had a good stay at Taos Monte Bello RV park. Drive the High Road to Taos from Santa Fe. Abiquiu (Georgia O'Keeffe country): The Riana Campground on the lake is a nice COE park with low rates (half for senior pass), and can be reserved ahead. Chaco Culture NHS: a World Heritage Site, has dry camping that now can be reserved online. During your time frame, I would stay in the southern part of the state. It is not unusual to get snow in the northern part of the state into May. We camped in the Jemez mountains (about 7000 ft. elevation) last May and got caught in snow. Many nice places in the south where it should be nicer weather. It can also get windy that time of year however so watch the weather when you plan to travel since visibility can get bad during a sand storm. Enjoy the Land of Enchantment.

RE: Need more help for first cross country trip.

I have traveled from NC to NM quite a bit. I will drive way, way out of the way to avoid I-40 in Arkansas (unless you love potholes and lots of road work).

RE: QUESTION FOR LONG TT OWNERS

My trailer is 37 ft. and truck is 22 ft. so 59 ft. total. Simple to tow and even easier to back than a short trailer. You do have to be aware of your length so you don't book a space that is too small but that is just common sense. It doesn't take long to get used to the length but I am still getting used to the width of my rear end :B (dually).

RE: full time travel trailers

We would full time in our Open Range except we are baby sitting for the next year or so (our grandson). We have used it for cross country travel but are on hold for a little while now.

RE: Handicap paking.

x2 what soos said. Also, handicap parking (camping or at the mall) is only enforced BY THE BUSINESS. The police or parking meter person don't enforce the regs generally. There might be city ordinances that say otherwise. If it was late in the afternoon, or too late for more reservations to be made, it's perfectly legal to use that campsite. thank you for being concerned!!!! Maybe where you are, but in my part of the world, in public parking areas like the mall, (Florida) it is enforced BY THE POLICE. State park camping areas have rangers to enforce with police backup. Same for New Mexico.

RE: New Mexico

I'll have to go along with Magnus. I have lived in NM for over 30 years and I discover something new every time I go exploring. In early June there might still be snow in Taos. If it were my first time in NM I would stay at a campground in Santa Fe. Lots to see and do there plus you are close enough to the Turquoise Trail to do a day trip. Could also do a day trip to Taos as it is less than a two hour drive from Santa Fe. While I love Albuquerque, you don't have enough time to see much even though it is only an hours drive from Santa Fe. Take your time and decide what you really want to do and enjoy The Land of Enchantment.

RE: first RV purchase

Jayco is a good brand. Make sure they do a good PDI (pre-delivery inspection) so you know how everything works and make sure everything works as it should before you take delivery. And welcome to the forum.

RE: Cable driven slideouts mechanism

We have a cable slideout system in our Open Range. It is simple to maintain and repair if needed. Works perfectly. I prefer it to a gear driven system by far and I have owned both types. I have not had a hydraulic system but again I suspect that it would be harder to maintain or repair if needed.

RE: Going to buy an Open Range

"" OR is now owned by Jayco and things are changing....and not all for the better. """ What facts do you base this statement on???? I'm guessing he has no facts, just a dislike for Jayco. I agree. We spent a lot of time deciding on our new trailer and ended up with the Open Range in our sig. Our second choice (a close second) was a Jayco. Both are great trailers.

RE: Traveling I-40 west

I was in NC for the month of October. I would drive an extra 500 miles to avoid Arkansas. Actually I did take the southern route back thru Mississippi and Louisiana to avoid going thru Arkansas again (went straight out I-40 going to NC). I think they dig up the road intentionally, patch it, then dig it up again to try to keep you in the state longer. I think it was about 300 miles longer but so much more enjoyable and actually took less time. If you don't mind a full day of road construction and sitting still on the road then I-40 is shorter. Other than that, I-40 is fine.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Depending on how old your dishwasher is, she could also be your floor sweeper, bed maker and vacuumer! She's called a wife but don't tell her I said that.

RE: Topper for Truck

Hello Penman, What is difference in fiber she'll and topper, thanks. Thought both were cab height I might be using the wrong term. Mine is a hard shell that adds about 6" to the bed height. If I were doing it over again, I would get one that is cab height. As others have mentioned, you have to check the weight which in my case would be fine. In either case I would definitely want the bed slide like I have now.

RE: Topper for Truck

I have a fiberglass topper on my truck but if I had it to do over again I would get a camper shell instead. The one thing I would do the same is get a bed slide so I can just pull it out and reach items from anywhere in the bed.

RE: When did the eu2000's become so hard to start

I have two Hondas (eu2000) that I run once a month as a minimum. They always start but usually take 10 to 12 pulls. Then they die and I start them again on the first pull. They run fine after that under a 1500 watt load. I keep Stabil in the gas but I suspect better, fresh gas would help.

RE: Open Range Quality

We have the OR bumper pull in our signature. We are just about out of the 2 year warranty period and have only had two problems (neither caused by OR). The propane regulator would not switch between tanks, even manually, and was promptly replaced. We had a problem with the door lock on our last trip across country but have not had it fixed yet. We have been very happy with our trailer and my family has had many different RV's from Winnebago Class A to truck campers and we like the OR the best so far.
