RE: Just wanted to share

These are great for added space in the bed of a pickup too. Just fill up and it is weatherproof and stays put. Keeps cab uncluttered. Or fill with wet gear and hose off.....

RE: towing in mountains of colorado

I pulled a 27' 5th wheel (8500#) with F250 5.3 Houston to Durango in June 2013 in temps of >100 degrees with zero problems. The truck performed flawlessly. I drove about 55-60 the only frustration was fighting a headwind going from Amarillo to Albuquerque NM. Watch weather and leave early in day. Hills not a problem...met my expectations for a gasser. Just be sure truck and trailer is serviced. If you are going only to Durango, roads are great and you will not be in "Mountains" at all. BUT if you go further to Silverton, you WILL have problems. But from here to Durango is fine...just typical interstate hills which I slowed for, but never caused a problem. Email me if you need more info...had a great trip and can suggest camps

RE: College Station Tx

TAM has an RV park search on school site. FHU. It is in the parking lot across from Kyle field and excellent accomodations! Have stayed there and recommend it. RVs from TT to multi MM$ rigs.

RE: Anyone know of a shop that can true tires in central Indiana

Read up on road force balancing. I Had it done and it worked Start with tire shop position tire on rim correctly yellow dot and red dot. Yellow is heavy spot on tire and should go to valve stem. then have road force balance and that will indicate your tire position on rim. It may take a few attempts as the tire may need to be rotated a few degrees around rim to position the tire in the right spot to the rim to allow it to be in balance....will still need some weights probably but will ride good. Check the info on this link...also do a search for local tire shops that do it. http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/infoRideMatch.dos

RE: Class A to Hybrid: "Rightsizing" experiences?

Another perspective .. went from pop up to hybrid and now to small5th wheel. Before making the leap, I'd suggest renting a hybrid. I really liked the feel of sleeping in a bunk which felt like a tent, but it required to be made and taken down each time. Also someone had to crawl over another. It was just annoying but doable. Stowage is also to be considered as the beds are not always up. The tents also needed to be dried after use. Setup and take down needs to be considered with weather too. I did enjoy the hybrid, but it followed a popup...many of your comments seem to me that the environment the class A provides is just right for your family... don't break something that is working well :-) we did our camping with 2 boys. You will need the room as the girls will want to bring friends. Try a unit before making the jump... email me if you have any questions

RE: Looking for Palo Duro State Park (Texas) experiences

Also there this June for a few days...beautiful park, would go again. Agree with comments Mesquite has best views etc, but maybe a ways away from most areas for kids. BUT exceptionally nice. Pics posted above as I recall too. We had 5th wheel, hill down was intimidating at a 10 degree grade too. Sites typical SP. was hot and needed lots of water on trails. PM me if any questions.

RE: Durango, Co ?

We just got back from Lightner Creek and enjoyed it. A few miles out of town. Nothing like other parks in town. Down country road and in lots of trees. But also may have trouble with a reservation, owners very helpful. Would go again.

RE: Help with Alaska slide show

Collect all pics in 1 folder 1st. I'd use same computer you sync phones and ipad on and then open windows explorer and copy to the folder from phone/ipad. Do same for camera... When each device is connected to computer, they can be seen under "computer" in windows explorer. A good album generator is JAlbum Good luck and send some pics too

RE: simple back up camera?

I use a wireless camera/monitor https://www.swifthitch.com/. Have found MANY uses for it as the camera has a magnetic base and monitor is about size of phone. All is wireless and monitor is handheld. I use to back in to storage alone, back up to see when my tires are at the chocks, also see how close to branches too. Many uses beyond the intended help to seeing while hitching. Rich

Houston to Durango, CO

We are traveling to Durango CO next month from Houston. Our plans are to spend a few days in Durango and then drive to Ouray and Silverton (no trailer). Our days are short drives starting Houston (Wichita falls, Palo Duro state park, Albuquerque, Durango), so we could see some sites along the way and try out some restaurants. Any suggestions for places we shouldn't miss along the way or in Durango, Ouray and Silverton would be great. We enjoy hikes and interesting towns and mountain sites. I have a 5th wheel so need to stay on main roads too. No kids this trip, just us and baby dog. If you have any road information or suggestions, that would help. Plans are to go 287 to 40 then 550 to Durango. Have to admit I am a bit tentative about the drive as it is the 1st long trip for us, so the road conditions and grades is important to me. Also a reason I planned short days. I have a gasser but assuming fuel availability shouldn't be a problem as I will be going through towns. Anyone else planning to be in the area, would like to get together.... Thanks Rich, Tricia and baby dog (Dallas)
