RE: Campgrounds Near DC Metro

Most would say Cherry Hill. But we stayed at Aquia Pines.That was a number of years ago. They had a shuttle that would take you into DC and pick you up.

RE: Why is that ?

I have been an electrician for over 40 years. When someone asks an electrical question on here,I no longer answer because there are 20 answers all of which vary. In most cases,there is usually only one answer that is technically correct and complies with the NEC. But the person who posts can't decifer which one is correct.

RE: Buying new with warranty vs used?

My opinion is go for the Jayco. It is a much better product. I have gone to numerous RV shows and seen the workmanship between the 2. The Dutchmen stuff was poorly made while the Jayco seemed to be well built.

RE: Boston to Outer Banks

Thanks Teach ! ( I am a preschool teacher ) what do / did you teach ?! Sounds like a great alternative.. will check it out! Any suggestions on one campground over the other ? and why ? Also, I feel silly asking this, but will the wind blown sand bother our brand spanking new Class C ? Is there a non-touristy thing to do that not many people know about ? Would love to get some tips from you if you have frequented OBX often !! Thanks in advance !The sand won't be a problem unless there's a hurricane. Several of us have recommended campgrounds. We prefer State and federal parks with large sites. Frisco National park Campground fit the bill. No hookups but nice large isolated sites. Right across from the entrance is a store with gas. Short drive to Graveyard of the Atlantic Museum and the Free ferry to Oracoke. The Life Saving Museum in Rodanthe is really neat. https://www.outerbanks.org/listing/chicamacomico-lifesaving-station-historic-site/259/

RE: I80 instead of 78 into PA from 287

I travel 78 a lot and while there are a few stretches that are bad, for the most part it is pretty good.I've seen a lot worse.I-80 is ok but we be longer. I -81 south from 80 has construction that goes on for about 20 miles in the south bound lanes unless they finished it since I was on last year.

RE: Boston to Outer Banks

Rt 13 through the Chesepeake Bay bridge Tunnel is a good route. We stayed at Frisco campground at the south end of the island. It is a National Park Campground so if you have the Senior Pass it's only $13 a night. Large sites,short walk to the beach.

RE: Trailer safety video from YouTube

It all comes down to ignorant or uncaring people. I started towing shortly after I could drive which was 50 years ago. Started out towing a utility trailer,then a boat trailer,then a pop up and now on our 4th travel trailer. I am always reading to educate myself. A few years ago I saw a pop up trailer go over a railroad track and came off the hitch. Fortunately, they did have the safety chains which kept the trailer from detaching from the vehicle. I helped the driver get it back on the hitch and gave him a 1/4" bolt and nut to put in where the hitch pin should go and told him to buy a hitch pin as soon as possible. he had no idea.

RE: NY to Missouri

Get on I-70 and go. Our son lived in Missouri for a few years and we did that route. Missouri has some very nice state park campgrounds if you're looking for a place to stay.

RE: Myrtle Beach SC

Huntington Beach State Park is the place if you like state parks. They have some FHU the rest water and electric. 4 years ago we paid $18 a night for W&E. We have also stayed at Willowtree which is near Long's which is about 10 miles from North Myrtle Beach. Very nice FHU campground but very expensive too.

RE: Yellowstone Grand Tetons

If you decide to take the motorhome, let us know. We can suggest a number of attractions along the way out and back.

RE: Recomendations for Lakeview OH

Buck Creek lake State park is a little northeast of Dayton. Very nice state park with electric hookups. Nice separation between sites,nice camp store and bathrooms.

RE: Yellowstone Grand Tetons

OK, you fly for free. But you have to rent a car, stay in hotels or cabins,eat out every meal.How much is all that going to cost? I remember our first trip to Disney World in the 80's. Friends flew down,stayed in park accomodations and ate every meal out. We drove down with the trailer, stayed in Ft Wilderness, cooked most of our meals and it was half the money our friends spent. So just compare the cost of both. Plus it you are 62,you can stay in any federal campground for half price. We stayed in Madison Campground in Yellowstone for $13 a night. Most stops on the way out were at state parks where the most we paid was $26 a night.We ate out maybe 5 times in a 2 week trip. The rest of the meals we cooked ourselves.

RE: $500 fine San Antonio

Most of these regs get passed because of a few people . I am Mayor of our town. We have regulations too on large vehicles. But they are no way that restrictive. You can park an RV but it can't be in front of your house.It has to be in the side or back yard. You can load and unload in front of your house for 48 hours. Then it must be gone for so long before you can park it there again.But we are not Nazi's about it. If it's for 50 hours instead of 48 you won't be fined. But leave it there for a month or so and you'll at least get a letter informing you of the ordinance.
