RE: Hoosier National Forest

We stayed 2 nights at Indian-Celina Lake campground. They have electric and the bath houses were nice. The campsite we had was huge but the interior roads are kind of narrow. We have a 26ft TT and didn't have trouble getting into our site. Larger trailers and motor homes could be a problem.

RE: Yellowstone West Entrance WebCam

We went in May,2016. We used the west,north and south entrances and never waited.That's why we go in the spring and fall.

RE: Campgrounds with River Access

Several Virginia State Parks are located on rivers. Shenandoah River and Chippokes Plantation are 2. The campgrounds aren't right along the river,but nearby. In Pa Cook Forest State Park is along a river.And many more on lakes.

RE: travel/road maps

What I do is use MapQuest to see how many miles it is,then I will go to a state park website for what ever state we will be in and see if there are any state parks in that area. If you don;t want state parks, KOA's have maps with locations of their campgrounds. All Stays also has a map with a filter that allows you to view what type of campgrounds you want to visit in a certain state.

RE: traveling from Ohio to Montana

If you let us know which Route you are taking,it would be easier to recommend campgrounds and sites.

RE: Route 6 Through PA

WE pulled a 24ft TT through parts of Rt 6 and it wasn't a problem. But 40 ft, I don;t know. I do remember there was one town we went through that was a little tight but don't remember which one.

RE: Why aren't travel trailers made this way ?

I had a 16ft cargo trailer and it was heavy.As has been said, the aluminum skin is very thin. I have also built 3 cargo trailers. The first 2 had aluminum roofs. The second trailer I still have. It started leaking after about 10 years so I covered the metal roof with rubber. The last trailer I built,I didn't cover the roof with aluminum.I used rubber over plywood. No leaks.I believe our current trailer, a Keystone Cougar is well built. At least the outside. Inside I had one cabinet door come off on a long trip and the shelves in the pantry collapsed because of cheap plastic brackets. Easy fixes. Other than that,holding up very well.

RE: Glacier/Grand Teton/Yellowstone NPs - what to do?

Go into the Inn at Old Faithful. The lobby is bueatifull.The dinning room is nice with meals anywhere from $12 to $30. Take in all the ranger programs and check out the visitor centers. At Mammoth Hot Springs there are stores,restaurants and historic buildings plus the hot springs themselves.If you need groceries head into Gardiner, Mt which is a few miles north of Hot Springs.We saw a mother grizzly and 3 cubs on the road from Norris to Canyon. The Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone is really neat with the lower falls.We stayed in Madison Campground for 4 nights. Pretty centrally located.But this time of year many more campgrounds will be open.

RE: "Long boondockers" leave trash; forests restricted

It is a problem. Even in some state parks. We stayed at a Pa state park a few years ago where some vagrants were staying. The rangers had to get them to clean up their site and give them a citation for putting tires in the dumpster.I can imagine it is worse where there is no regular ranger patrols.

RE: Best choice for long road trips

We are on our 4th travel trailer.No sway issues at all.I would stay in the 26 ft range for TT's.You can go a little longer for 5th wheels because part of the trailer is over the bed. I like the fact that I can use the full bed for storage with the TT.We have pulled from Pa, to Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon on sepperate trips with no issues.

RE: RV trip from KY to Boise-help needed

One suggestion I have is take Rt 36 across Missouri instead of I-70. It's a 4 lane 65mph divided highway. There are two Missouri State parks along this route,one is Perhsing State Park which we stayed at. $19 a night with electric and it's right off the higway. The other is Long Branch which we have not stayed at. At the west end of 36 you can hit I-29 north to get to I-80.We took a short cut from I-29 to I-80 by hitting route 6. Probably saves close to 100 miles . We stayed at Olagalla Recreation are. Nice state park under tall trees by a lake with electric. $23 a night. We also stopped at the Harold Warp Pioneer Museum in Minden,Neb. If you like history,old cars, trucks,tractors or motorcycles, the is a greta place to stop. They have a campground next to the Museum. It was $36 a night,but included one ticket to the museum.

RE: Plattekill, NY to Gettysburg, PA to Elizabethtown, KY

We like Flying J and Pilot stations that have seperate RV pumps. They have an app that lets you know which of their stations have the pumps for RV's and which don't.

RE: Lincoln City Indiana

WE camped there a number of years ago. The sites aren't very isolated, but the park itself is ok. We walked to the Lincoln Boyhood site from the campground.

RE: Dometic 2652 quits on propane - NOW WON'T IGNITE

Here is some thing to check. The igniter also acts as the old capilary tubes to sense the flame. I one time had a water heater with a similar problem. I removed the igniter and cleaned the metal portion with sand paper. It worked.

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

Along with CA, NY, and IL, Canada and Mexico are places we will never visit again. Too many rules that don't agree with our life style. I agree.
