RE: Walmart

The information I have is that WalMart has a "welcome" policy for RVs/overnight. It is the local townships that can and will have policies forbidding overnight RV parking. Perhaps an individual on the township committee owns a campground nearby. Who knows? A problem that has been mentioned on this forum many times, is that some RVers park at a Wal Mart...throw out their awnings, put out their grills and stay for a couple days. (All because they want to save 20 bucks.) That spoils it for everyone else.People that head for Fla. seem cheap. If I was going RVing in Fla. I would just go to the nearest RV Park and shop and 7/11 and show W-Mart I don't need the discount anymore.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

Thread starter "Supercharged" is happily chuckling somewhere, saying - "I've done it again!" IMO - he's only about 55...:B .That makes me feel sad when someone gives me hell and they don't know me. I'm always studying what I see and hear. That is why I said this and just wanted to bring it up. I might not be right, but we all know, no one should ever pull anything behind there RV, when they hit 70 years of age for sure.

RE: Quartzsite make you sick?

We live in California's central valley. Due to the constant tilling of soil for farming here we have very high levels of dust particles in our air. Valley Fever is quite common. I have lived here for over 40 years and this is the first time I've heard about it in dogs. Thanks for the info rockhillmanor! We have a lot of people with chest congestion right now, but not sure if it's from VF. We do have a high fungus count due to all the rain. Very interesting reading. I have lived 55 years in Az. ,everybody one time or other gets Valley Fewer, some never have a problem when they have it. Some have a bad year or two when they come down with it. Dogs do get it, I have had many friend with dogs who have talked about it over the years.

RE: route 66

how many have traveled the famous route 66, partly or the entire route. how many have been to the route 66 intersection that crossed itself?I was a young saleman who traveled it to make a living. Then came the interstate, just go south in N. Mex. to 60 and take it across you will think it is 1955.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I'm 73 year old now, driving a 29 ft. Ford 450 MH. but thinking of pulling a car next year. Carry a 400 Honda along now on the rear. Those of you who have not kept up with the OP (Supercharged) he makes these posts to generate conversations. It appears he's over 70 and still driving - just like thousands of other qualified seniors. :) Long trip, 33 days, get back and two days later in the Hospital for 8 days, on top of that got the flu. Had to cancel a 30 day trip with the RV that leaves tomorrow, not up the full speed yet, feel like the supercharger belt came off. Remember at 70 just put the keys to the RV up, put on the depends big boy underwear and and sit by the widow in the rocker and watch the cars go by.

RE: Walmart vs Cracker Barrel for overnight stops off I 95

We need a stop near Florida/Georgia border off I95. We will be in a 35 ft Motorhome towing a jeep. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. We have never had a layover at either, so not sure what to do. Thanks!You will get more crime for the same price at W. Mart. I'd put a 1/2 in sheat of steel on the side I lay my head on. Hope it helps

RE: Toad hit three times

Ok folks lets hear some comment. Maybe some good ideas will help. My ford focus towed behind my class A has been hit three times in two years. Most recently this weekend. Seems same problem all three times. Two times in bumper to bumper traffic. Seems as soon as the rv goes by, the truck drivers think they can turn in behind me. I have a rotating becon on the car, a sign on the back of the RV, and flags in the window. I drive very defensively now as I can, I pay attention especially to the left side, as the truck drivers have limited view on that side. This weekend in PA on I78 I think the tractor trailer was just sloppy driver and he was merging onto the hwy behind me and got to close and took out the right side of my car. I have a feeling towing a taller car would be better?? SUV?? Comment?Had my inlaws car get hit three times one night in the Hotel parking lot,didn't know untel the next morning. Ice over snow everywhere.They just kept hitting it all night.

RE: Durango to Flagstaff-hwy 160

Started driving it in 1964, a lot more traffic today, but still drive it. Stop at Red Lake Trading Post and look around. Maybe you need a bale of hay or a milk bucket.

RE: Diesel vs gas for truck campers?

Do you like the shake, smoke, oil on shoes, noise, much higher repair bills, if you do go for diesel

RE: Why hasn't anyone released a HD truck with a Turbo V8?

It seems that every vehicle manufacture is making their HD trucks more and more capable. With the introduction of turbo charged V6 engines like the Ecoboost, Why hasn't anyone released a 6.2\6.4 turbo charged v8 Gas engine? The only reason I can think of is that it would possibly reduce the number of Diesel engines they sell. You don't get the smoke to smell if they do that, and remember diesel people like to track in the oil on there feet into everyone house to. And what about the wallet with the chain on it, who would wear that then.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I think maybe if you drive a motorhome at 70 you are safe, but pulling anything behind it is not safe. For someone who does not say how old he is, what he is towing and with what nor does he say why he is asking the question, he isn't supplying much information to get a good troll going. So...I'm 73 year old now, driving a 29 ft. Ford 450 MH. but thinking of pulling a car next year. Carry a 400 Honda along now on the rear.
