RE: Hershey Show thoughts

Same thing with TT's.We were looking for something in the 25ft range but most on dealers lots were smaller or larger.Not much in that range and the ones that are there didn't have a floor plan like we want.We really liked the walk through bathroom in our old trailer but hard to find that.Agree what we need is more storage.Our old one had enough outside storage but not enough inside.We had 2 Sunlines and they would customize for you.With the new one we ordered we had a hard enough time just getting the trailer.In fact 3 months later we still don't have it although they said it's finished and on the way.It should take a week to get from Indiana to Pa but I guess they don't really care.We liked to take one vacation before it gets cold.

RE: Custer SP/Blue Bell & Stockade Lake South

We stayed at Rafter J when we went,but at that time Custer had no electric hookups.If it had,we would have stayed in the park.Make sure you do the wildlife loop and check out the films at the visitor centers.We also enjoyed Bear Country,the Cosmos,Wall Drug and Badlands NP and Mt Rushmore.

RE: Colleton State Park in Walterboro, SC

We stayed there one night last fall on the way to WDW. Nice campground only 25 sites with water and electric hookups. Not too far off I-95.Nice rangers. The only thing I didn't like was the area it's located in seemed a little run down.While driving to campground from exit there was a chain gang working next to the road,guards with shotguns and all. All South Carolina Campgrounds are cheap. We stayed at Huntington Beach SP at Christmas last year.It was $180.00 for 7 days.

RE: Camping World offer

One more thing. I don't hold any animosity against the salesman.I believe he has been trying to help.As he said in one e-mail: I’m really sorry that I can’t get you a straight answer on this. I just have to be the guy that calls the guy that knows the guy at the factory.

RE: Camping World offer

Here is the text of the e-mail I received from the salesman at Camping World: I will have the VIN on Monday. He thinks we will have it by the end of August barring any delays. He will get me a more confirmed date soon.

RE: Camping World offer

Bob, first,my comment was meant for Marcus not you and your snarky comments.We sold our old trailer in the beginning of June and ordered the new one shortly there after.We have a friend who used to live in this area but moved to Arizona 2 years ago.Right after we sold the old trailer,his wife died.We always told him whenever they came in , they could use the trailer.He called and told me he was having a memorial service for his wife in September and asked to stay in the camper.I told the salesman the situation and he said he thought we could have it by August 30th when our friend planned to arrive.A few weeks later he said it had an off line date of September 6th but his contact was working to change the slot to the week before.I was told that dealers order trailers to fill slots on their lot.They may sit there for months before being sold so a week to them usually doesn't make any difference.As I said before we made a down payment and told them we would pay cash for the balance.If we were told upfront we wouldn't have it until mid September fine.But we were led to believe we could have it sooner.Even then I wouldn't complain,I just thought it was ironic that we got the letter from Marcus about a cover for an RV we don't have.

Camping World offer

Hi Marcus, we just received a letter from you offering us special pricing on a cover for our trailer.The problem is,we don't have a trailer.We sold our old one and ordered a new Keystone Cougar 24RKSWE Travel Trailer from Camping World in Harrisburg,Pa in the middle of June.We told the salesman we would like to have it by August 30th and he thought that was doable.We have been in contact with him several times and he told us the trailer was scheduled to have an offline date of September 6th,but his contact was trying to switch that so we could have it a week earlier.Now that we're getting down to the wire,we're told it isn't going to happen.I don't understand why manufacturers make thousands of trailers that will sit on dealers lots for months,but won't change their schedule to get one out for someone that has made a down payment and is paying in cash.I thought since Camping World is such a large organization,they would have a little more pull than an independent dealer but I guess not. Anyways,since your deal expires September 7th and who knows when the trailer will arrive,we'll have to pass on the cover. Thanks anyways, Randy Gartner,Robesonia,Pa

RE: East Coast Suggestions?

Padlin, that is exactly what we are leaning towards in Maine, possibly stopping in Cape Cod first. As much as we were thinking about Ocean City, and Virginia Beach, we are a bit hesitant that it may be too much like the Jersey Shore scene, which we really didn't enjoy years ago. We are towing a trailer; any suggestions of where it is best to stop that is centrally located, or should we move around? The places I suggested are nothing like the Jersey Shore.Jersey is very commercialized.Assateague,Chincotaegue and Kiptopeke are rural settings.You aren't packed in like sardines.But it seems you've made up your mind to head to Maine so have a good time.

RE: East Coast Suggestions?

Assateague National park has both ocean side and bayside sites.Neither has hookups,but you won't get the feel of camping in the wild at a pprivate campground like you do there.The ponies come right into your campsites.During the season they have ranger programs every day.Plenty of roads to bike and a few trails to walk.We prefer the bayside because you can find some shade trees and grass.We were in loop C,not far from the water fill and dump station.Maryland also has a state park on the ocean side.One loop does have electric.Further south is the town of Chincoteague.It is an old town with some nice restaurants,an old movie theater,some ice cream shops and Wallops Island which is associated with NASA.We stayed at Maddox Campground.Full hookups and pool.Within bicycle distance of Assateague Wildlife Refugee.They have alot of paved bike trails and a nice beach.Further south yet is Kiptopeke State Park in Virginia.Full hookups within walking distance of the beach.Not much to do in the area.

Are Virginia State park Campgrounds open year round?

RE: Disney World?

We stayed in the 400 loop.It was about 2 blocks to the Hoope de Doo Revue,store and landing.It was about a block to the dog park and 3 blocks to the pool.

RE: Lead time ordering new trailer

What boggles my mind is that car manufacturers and I guess trailer manufacturer's make thousands of trailers that sit on dealers lots for months or maybe years and yet,when someone orders something,they can't stop making those that nobody has ordered and make one for someone who has put money down.Back in the late 790's,I ordered a GMC van.Told me it would be 10 weeks.At the end of 10 weeks,they said it wouldn't be built because they were changing to the new year model.But the next week,a van came in that was almost identical to the one I ordered.They could make that one,but not mine.Go figure.

RE: Six weeks to see?

I am not sure why you would need a gun in Canada -- we carry bear spray for the grizzlies. So far, so good. ;) Having a gun is like having 4 wheel drive.It's better to have it and not need it,than to need it and not have it.

Lead time ordering new trailer

In the middle of June,I ordered a new Keystone Travel Trailer.I told the salesman we had planes for August 30th and he said we should be able to get it by then.Then a few weeks back we were told it should be done the last week of august,then last week he told us the off line date was September 6th.I offered to contact Keystone directly or Camping World where I ordered it to try to get some help but he told me not to do that saying his contact was working on it.Well now we're in the second week of August and haven't heard anything.What is the normal lead time for ordering a new unit.I thought 7 or 8 weeks would be enough but now it's not looking great for the 30th.Was I being too optimistic ?

RE: East Coast Road Trip - 2015 - Beginning Planning

At Assateague,we stayed in the NP Bayside loop 3 site C48.It is a huge lot with a tree for shade and direct access to the bay.It is also fairly close to the dump station and water hydrant.Loop C also allows generators at certain times.No hookups but it's worth it IMO to be in the park.And get a schedule and go to all the ranger programs.They are great! As to Outer Banks,I would suggest NPS Frisco Campground at least for a day or 2.Again,no hookups but lots of room between sites and close to the beach.
