RE: Towing with a Van

I have been towing with a Van for almost 40 years.I really prefer the van over a pic up for a number of reasons.One being your nose doesn't stick out so much when you are trying to pull out.I can haul 2 grandkids,the dog and 2 bicycles and a cooler. I currently have a GMC Savanah All Wheel Drive and really love it.I'm pulling a Keystone Cougar TT and we just went from Pa to Missouri and back and it towed the TT very well.I have the 5.3 liter motor.

RE: First time towing with the new van, not fun!

I have towed with a van for about 40 years.the first thing I would check is the van rated to tow your trailer? If so,do you have enough tongue weight? Do you have enough air in your tires? Are you using a weight distributing hitch? You may not have the spring bars pulled up tight enough to distribute the weight.Are they heavey enough for your trailer? If you have met all of the above criteria,then you may need a sway bar.

RE: report on 2 campgrounds

I did go to Trip Advisor as I had posted on there before.It looks like they have a new website and I saw nowhere to post review of a campground.It seems more slanted towards hotels.

RE: How many of you do this?

Running on propane while refueling is waiting for a disaster to happen.You may have gotten away with it for 30 years but that one time may be your last.We plug the fridge in the day before leaving.The wife freezes milk bottles with water.That keeps the fridge and freezer cold while on the road up to 12 hours.

report on 2 campgrounds

We recently went to Missouri to see our 4 grand children.We picked up the 2 oldest and took them with us to St Francois State park about 50 miles south of St Louis.This is a beautiful camp ground with alot of shade.It has electric,water hydrants through out the loop and a dump station.The rest rooms are nice with a decent amount of individual showers.There are many pull throughs and pull offs,with a few back ins.It will fit any size RV. There is a lazy flowing river for wading and a number of trails for hiking.The campground hosts were very nice. There is a Walmart about 10 miles south in Deslodge. On the way out and back,we stayed at Indian/Celina Lakes southslope campground.The sites were very nice,wooded and isolated from each other.They have electric hookups.Again the bath houses were nice with individual showers.The bad part is the roads in the campground are very narrow making it difficult to manouver when backing in as all the sites are back ins.In many places the narrow roads drop off into drainage ditches so it could be a bad day if you got into one of them.We have a 27 ft TT and I would not take anything larger.There is no dump station but they have water through out the loop.We didn't get to the lake so I can't comment on them.But for smaller campers,this make for a nice campground.

RE: Dump Station Locator

if you're close enough to a sewer cleanout,or you have a blur tote tank,you could dump in there.

RE: dump stations in indiana

Most Flying J's have dumps and water at the RV pumps.

Flying J near Columbus,Ohio

On our way home from Missouri,we stopped at the Flying J on I-70,east of Columbus,Ohio. I pulled up to the Rv pumps and inserted my credit card.I was asked if I had a Flying J loyalty card which I don't.It told me to pres enter to skip this step. I tried this several times but nothing happened.I tried another pump and same thing.So i pulled to the regular pumps and now it said see cashier.Which I did and eventually got fueled up.Last year,when we stopped there,their computers were down and we couldn't get any gas.It seems like this place won't be on our list anymore,Anyone else have issues there?

RE: Lincoln Boyhood Memorial in Indiana

I posted it because we wanted to stop there with the trailer.The only answers I got were for the satelight view and a suggestion to call the park which I did but no one answered or called back.So we went in blind and it worked out.I continued the thread to let other know.

RE: Any eastern PA "Hidden Gems"

Plenty of hidden gems but not much chance of finding a spot this weekend.We love Locust Lake , Pine Grove Furnace and Promised Las State Park s.

RE: Lincoln Boyhood Memorial in Indiana

RE: Opinions for First National Park Visit

Where ever you go, I would suggest trying to stay in the park.The kids will enjoy the ranger programs and visitor centers.And don't forget there are a lot of lesser known National Parks and state parks that are neat.

Does the Lincoln Boyhood National memorial have parking for RV's?

RE: !70 to I 71 south to I64 west. Gas locations

Thanks,but I was looking for some personal experience along that route.It's hard to tell from a website how easy it is to get in and out.

RE: Rand MCNally 7725

I just don't see where you can enter that on mine.

!70 to I 71 south to I64 west. Gas locations

We are heading from Pa to Missouri and prefer Flying J's for our fuel stops.Are there any of them along this route ( I70 west to I71 south to I 64 west) or any other good easy in and outs pulling a 27ft TT?

RE: Please recommend a campground near I-75 south of Atlanta Ga

Ditto on High Falls State Park. They have 2 campgrounds.Make sure to use the River Campground as the other one has small sites that are hard to gte into.The River Campground has water and electric,large sites,many pull throughs and nice bath houses.
