RE: Need an RV GPS?

Yeah Oldtrojan,I bought the 7725 and have the same issues.You try to input an address and it refuses to take it. The GPS on my phone is so easy as is the old Garman Nuvi I bought 5 years ago.I paid about $325.00 for the Rand McNally and I hate it.

RE: Ohio to West Chester, Pa

76 is the turnpike and tolls.It would cost about $40 each way. I would take I-80 east to Pa 322 south then I-81N to I-78W.Then Pa 61 south to Pa 222 south to Pa 422 east.The 100 south.

RE: VA to PA

Looks like I-81 north to I-68/70 then I-70 north to Pa turnpike west.Then I-99 north to 322 to I-80 to Pa-899 to Marienville. I have been on all of those roads except 899 and they are good roads for the most part.

lance trailers

Does anyone have an opinion on Lance Travel trailers.While researching Lance models,I came across another forum that had a lot of negative reviews.I am interested in model 2385,but would be interested in hearing about issues with any Lance models.

RE: RV'ing the way we like it..peace and quiet

Our goal is to find the Forest Service campgrounds that don't have the generator crowd. If we find one.......perfect. A few years ago we camped in the National Park Campground at Assateague.The camper across the street spotted my generator running and came over to talk to me about it.he couldn't hear it until he was about 10 feet away and even then he said " boy is that thing quiet".Assateague has 2 loops that allow genies and 1 that doesn't.The National Forest campgrounds that allow generators need to enforce the times they can run and the decibel level.Or have loops where you can't run them like the NP does.We have found many NF campgrounds with electric hookups so we don't even need the genny.Here are a few: Sherando Lake and Goose Point in Virginia and Trout Pond in West Virginia.

RE: Anybody here use their RV for business purposes?

I use my RV twice a year for business purposes.I own a sound company and use it to stay over night for festivals.I do take some kind of tax credit for it but not sure how it works as my accountant takes care of that.

RE: Missouri....

We have stayed at 2 Missouri State parks and on Corps of Engineer Park in Missouri.St Francois State park about 30 miles south of St Louis is nice.Electric hookups,there a river for wading or fishing.Nice big sites.We also stayed at Arrow Rock State park.The campground was nice with electric hookups and the town of arrow Rock has alot of historic buildings which are open to the public.The COE Campground wet stayed at was on Pomme de Terra lake.I believe it was Pittsburg Landing.It had a nice beach and electric hookups.

RE: Towing with a Van

I have been towing with a Van for almost 40 years.I really prefer the van over a pic up for a number of reasons.One being your nose doesn't stick out so much when you are trying to pull out.I can haul 2 grandkids,the dog and 2 bicycles and a cooler. I currently have a GMC Savanah All Wheel Drive and really love it.I'm pulling a Keystone Cougar TT and we just went from Pa to Missouri and back and it towed the TT very well.I have the 5.3 liter motor.

RE: First time towing with the new van, not fun!

I have towed with a van for about 40 years.the first thing I would check is the van rated to tow your trailer? If so,do you have enough tongue weight? Do you have enough air in your tires? Are you using a weight distributing hitch? You may not have the spring bars pulled up tight enough to distribute the weight.Are they heavey enough for your trailer? If you have met all of the above criteria,then you may need a sway bar.

RE: report on 2 campgrounds

I did go to Trip Advisor as I had posted on there before.It looks like they have a new website and I saw nowhere to post review of a campground.It seems more slanted towards hotels.
