RE: Very Lucky campers..

A good reason to sleep in a campground instead of a parking lot.

RE: Hershey new Price?

This is why we prefer state and federal parks.Yeah, most don't have full hookups,but you have a camper so you don't need them.Most we stayed at have electric.The sites are better spaced and they usually have lake or pool.There are several Pa state parks within an hour of Hershey and the rates are very reasonable.And if you are a Pa resident over 62,you get a discount.

RE: Myrtle? Hatteras? or both?

Both are nice.We like Huntington Beach State park south of Myrtle Beach.Most say you can't get a site but if you don't go on the weekend,you may be able to snag a site say Sunday to Thursday. Or at Cape Hatteras only one of the National Park campgrounds takes reservations so you could probably get a site at one of them.Again,easier going in on a Sunday. Of course no hookups but most allow generators during certain hours.We like Frisco because there are some secluded sites with shade.

RE: Your Thoughts on Camping with a smaller Travel Trailer

27ft isn't a small TT.16 ft would be small. The bigger the trailer,the fewer places you will be able to get into. Plus,it's more difficult getting into and out of gas stations and restaurants. But to answer your question,when we were younger,we camped with our 2 boys and my 2 nieces in a pop up camper. Yes,it was cramped but we made it work and had a lot of fun.Most of the time we were outside anyways.The only time it was a problem was when it rained. From there we moved to a 23 ft.TT.Better for sure. We now have a 27 ft TT with a slide out and we sometimes take 2 of our grandkids and the dog along. Plenty of room for us all. I would never go bigger than this because we prefer state and federal parks.

RE: "Refurbished" (?) Laptops

I have purchased 2 refurbs.One is used for a very specific purpose and is still going strong 10 years later. The other was a Christmas present for my stepson. It was 2 years old and I was able to get him a better machine than I could have afforded by going new.

Chippokes Plantation State park

We have reservations at Chippokes Plantation State Park in September. Are there any good restaurants on that side of the river? And,we plan to visit Williamsburg,Jamestown and Yorktown.Any good places to eat while there?

RE: Reserve America

Don't just look at their website,call.I believe they have a different number for each state.I always call.

RE: OK, What's the trick to reserving on Reserve America?

Here's a trick: don't try to book weekends.We typically go in on a Sunday and leave on a Wednesday or Thursday.I just reserved the site we wanted in a popular state park for the middle of August less than a month away by doing this. Even the most popular sites will have vacant spaces as long as you don't go on a weekend.

RE: Leaking toilet.. anyone use a wax ring?

There is usually a flange where your toilet bolts to.If the floor boards raised the toilet,you may need a thicker wax or neoprene gasket.

RE: Gettysburg/ Hershey/Lancaster

Pa has some very nice state parks.We like Pine Grove Furnace.It is about 1/2 hour from Gettysburg and an hour or less to Hershey.They have electric hookups,water hydrants in every loop and a dump station.They also have new bath houses.There are 2 lakes for swimming,a camp store and a small visitor center.It is the half way point on the Appalachian Trail.About a mile away is a former CCC/ POW camp.You can get a map and do a self guiding tour.We did it.Pretty interesting.

RE: Help me with roof project please!

I would make sure you use a solid core plywood ( no voids).You won't find that at Home Depot or Lowes.You have to get it from a plywood dealer. But it will make for a stronger roof.I would then get a roofing contractor to put a new rubber roof back on.They will do it correctly and faster than you could.

RE: Hutchinson and Abilene Kansas

When we visited Abeline,we stayed at Manhattan Kansas at a nice state park.I believe it was Tuttle Creek? The sites were very spread out.Some had full hookups.No problem for big rigs.Plenty of space.Behind the Eisenhower Home was the Museum of Telephany which we really enjoyed.If you decided to stay in the Manhattan area,other things we enjoyed were the Cavalry Museum at Ft Riley,The First Territorial capitol and the Pony Express Museum in Marysville.

RE: keep away if in Penn Dutch country

I see many complaints about things like this in private campgrounds.I have never experienced anything like this is a state or federal park.

RE: Campground manners

My dog makes sure no one tresspasses on our site.She's actually very people friendly but has a loud bark.

RE: Selling Trailer with Expired Tag

In Pennsylvania,you go to a Notary Service where they will take care of the sale, taxes and registration for the new owner.They will give the buyer a new tag right there.Not sure how Maryland works.A few years back I bought a trailer in jersey and the dealer gave me a temporay tag.Then I had 30 days to register it in Pa when I got back.

RE: Looking for CG near Cass WV

Seneca Shadows is a good one but only has electric.Not sure why you need full hookups for a hybrid.I have camped in tents,pop ups and TT's but almost never get a site with full hookups.Seneca Shadows has nice sites and nice bath houses with water in every loop and a dump station.

RE: Shall I cover my travel trailer during winter time?

I always cover.Tried the commercial covers but they allow water or melted snow through and camper was always dirty when you removed the cover.Plus,they were expensive and only last a few years.For the past 5 years or so I have used a 30 x 20ft plastic tarp and cover with that.I also bought 2 " webing at the hardware store with buckles and run them over the top of trap and under RV.Then tie the ends with rope. The tarps are about $60 and last one or 2 years but when I uncover the unit it is clean.

RE: Best Delmarva campground for teens & fishing

Kiptopeke State park at the tip of the DelMarVa Pinninsula has full hookups and a nice beach just inside the Chesapeake Bay bridge Tunnel.Also agree on Assategue.We stayed in the national Park Bayside Campground.No hookups but two of the loops allow generators.The Ranger programs are great.Nice beach. You have a better chance of getting a site if you don't go on a weekend.We went in on a Sunday and stayed till Thursday.I also might suggest Jane's Island State park near Crisfield,Md. It has sites with electric hookups.It's on the Chesapeake Bay and has a beach that's accesible only by boat.We have a canoe and it was an easy 20 minute paddle.One more suggestion would be Maddox campground in Chincoteague ,Va. private campground with sites under tall pines.You can ride your bicycles to the National Wildlfe Refuge.They have a nice beach and paved trails to ride your bikes.The wild ponies come right up on the trails.Plus the town has an old movie theater,2 great ice cream shops,lots of good restaraunts,and if it rains you go to Wallops Island which is a NASA tracking station and has a cool visitor center.
