RE: Why do you prefer your rig?

We have a 26 ft TT with one slide. Sometimes we take the grandkids with and the extra room is nice. We also prefer a seperate bedroom and the extra storage a larger unit gives you.But 26ft is my limit .

RE: Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Cheyenne

We were in Yellowstone in Mid May.Spent 4 days in the park and could have used 2 more. We were in the Black Hills late 90's. A great trip too. Spent 3 days there. I believe you are trying to squeeze too much into 2 weeks.

RE: Chesapeake bay camping suggestion.

Wanting full hookups limits your choices. I think Point Lookout, a Maryland State Park has some full hookups. Also Elk Neck State park at the north end of the Bay has a full hookup section. We like Jane's Island SP but that has electric only.Janes Island is the best for kayaking as they have a canoe launch, canoe trails and an Island with a private beach that can only be reached by boat. It was maybe a 15 or 20 minute paddle.

RE: Best Practice to tie up dog?

We have a 6ft leash for walking,but when we're at the camper we have a 15ft and a 20 plastic coated cable. We have stayed in state,federal and private parks and no one ever said we had to have our dog on a 6ft leash in the campsite. But we don't leave her out when we're not out and if she starts barking we quiet her or take her in.

RE: Route from Florida to Yellowstone last week in Sept

Map quest shows this route:https://www.mapquest.com/directions/from/us/fl-282094580/to/us/wyoming/business-yellowstone-np/yellowstone-national-park-10145743 But I would modify it. After I-29, get on I-80 west through Nebraska then into Wyoming and take I 26-287 to the Grand Tetons and enter Yellowstone that way. Nice drive into the park. We stayed at Madison in May.Nice, centrally located campground. Make sure to go into the Old Faithful Inn. It's supposed to be the largest log structure in the world. The interior is beautiful. The food is good and the prices are decent. We saw a mother grizzly with 3 cubs on the way from Norris to Canyon.

RE: Mt Rushmore, Yellowstone, Cheyenne

I would say a minimum of 3 days in South Dakota. One day to see Custer State Park. A half day each to see the Badlands and Mt Rushmore. Then another day to see other things like Bear Country USA or Wall Drug. We spent 4 days in Yellowstone in May and could have easily used 2 more.

RE: Spruce knob wv

And we stayed at a very nice campground in Ohio in May. Buck Creek State Park was very nice. Electric hookups, nice sites and a big lake with swimming beach.

RE: Spruce knob wv

I agree with downtheavenue that strictly for views, Skyline Dr would be best. Loft Mtn probably the best campground there. But there are many great camogrounds that don't have the views but have more to offer liek Goose Point, Sherando lake and Trout Pond.

RE: Removing the antenna

I too would suggest leaving at least the antenna base there. If you want to take off the antenna fine,but if you take off the base, you will have several holes to plug.

RE: Trip Report: The Perfect Family Trip, Northwest 2016

Great pics.Keep them coming. We went from Pa to Yellowstone in May.It was a great trip . We stayed in the park and got to see a grizzly bear with 3 cubs walking down the road right towards our van.

RE: Is Towing a 40-Footer Cross-Country too big??

We went from Pa to Yellowstone in mid May with a 27 ft TT. You will find you will have fewer choices on where to get gas and where to camp.With our rig we had a few places getting gas where it was really tight getting in and out. But, there are people that do it.

RE: NJ to Yellowstone

WE live in mid eastern,Pa. Our route was Pa Turnpike to I-70. A really nice campground is east of Daytona called Buck Creek State Park. Nice sites, nice lake, $26 a night for electric. Kept on 70 to I-74 then I-72 to State Route 36 across Missouri. It's a nice 4 lane highway 65mph with less traffic than the interstates. Along there are 2 nice Missouri State Parks, Long Branch and Pershing. I believe it was $19 a night with electric. From Rt 36 to I-29 to I-80. Nice Iowa State Park 10 miles east of Nebraska City called Waubonsie. $16 a night for electric. On I-80 in Nebraska we stayed at Ogalla Recreation area. Nice state campground with views of the lake.$18 a night for electric plus $6 entrance fee. Shower houses weren't in the best shape but otherwise a nice campground. We stayed at Madison in Yellowstone which was one of 3 open in mid May. On the way back, we stopped at the Harold Warp Pioneer Museum in Minden, Nebraska. If you like history, old cars, trucks,motocycles or snowmobiles, you'll love this place. Lot's to see.Definately worth a few hours.

RE: Is Pilot fueling set up fot regular gas in truck lanes...

We like most Flying J's because of their RV lanes. We only ever came across one Pilot that had them.

RE: RV Park Reviews and Trip Advisor

We mostly stay at Federal or state campgrounds. You don;t have to worry about those campgrounds posting bogus reviews.I have found most of the reviews for public campgrounds to be right on.

RE: National Parks - ReserveAmerica shows full - accurate?

National Forest campgrounds are primitive, i.e. no hookups, which makes it more likely to find a spot. We have stayed in many National Forest campgrounds. All of the ones we have stayed in had electric hookups.

RE: First come Campgrounds in Yellowstone and Teton

We were there in mid May. Only 3 campgrounds were open. We stayed in Madison.We had reservations. I didn't want to drive 2,000 miles and not have a site.But at that time of year,we would have been ok since we arrived on a Wednesday. There were people coming in every day just for one night.Most of them were tent campers. I'm glad we weren't tent camping as the nights got down into the low 40's or high 30's. On the way out and back, we didn't have reservations and had no trouble getting sites at state parks or private campgrounds.

RE: Snobbed by Apache Palms in Tempe Az.

I have never run into this, but we mostly stay at state and federal parks. I can understand not wanting junk, but there are some trailers like Airstream that hold up very well.Even though our trailer current trailer is new, I don't think I would stay in a park that asks that question.

RE: Rural PA roads may be a Crock

In May we went to Yellowstone and back. We found that most of Pa's roads were as good if not better than many of the states we traveled through.A few years ago, the legislature raised the gas tax and many other fees. There is a lot of road work going on in the state right now.6 miles of Rt422 in western Berks County is getting a complete overhaul.

RE: Greenville, SC campgrounds - pros and cons

Paris Mountain State park is nearby.Water and electric hookups.If you like history,Ninty Six and Cowpens revolutionary War National Historic parks are relatively close.http://maliasmiles.com/south-carolina/paris-mountain-state-park/paris-campground/

RE: Florida Camping: Where are your spots in the Sunshine State?

Several good State Parks in the pan handle and Keys. Most stay pretty busy so get your reservations in early.
