RE: Military Campgrounds (Lackland, Tinker, Corpus Christy)

Don't forget that Fort Sam Houston also has a campgrounds in San Antonio. Lackland AFB is on the west side of town and Ft. Sam is on the northeast side.

RE: Hutchinson and Abilene Kansas

Colliehauler, Thanks for the memories about the Brooksville Hotel. I'm a Air Force brat that lived in Salina, KS in 1962-63. The Brooksville was THE place to go for special occasions. Didn't know it still existed. Thanks again.

RE: Need some advice on Shasta 2009 Airflyte 12

The AC on a small trailer will usually run on Yahama's EF2400 generator. You may have to turn off the AC while making coffee, drying hair, using a microwave, etc. No need for a second generator. Where are you thinking of boondocking in Texas? There is very little National Forest, BLM in this very large state.

RE: ST205/75R/14C Tire Choices - Not Too Many Choices

The sizing on Kumhos is slightly different than US market tires. For example, the 205R14C Kumho has a 27" diameter. The Goodyear Marathon ST205/75R14 has a diameter of 26.1". They both fit a 14" wheel.

RE: ST205/75R/14C Tire Choices - Not Too Many Choices

There are 4 top quality, non ST, tires on the market in 14" sizes.The already mentioned Kumho and Hankook plus the Maxxis UE 168 and the Goodyear HMG 2020. All can be found online except the Goodyear. The Goodyear is a tire made for U-Haul and most stores will not sell them to the public. These 4 are the only tires I would put on my trailer.

RE: OTA antenna at home

I made a single bay Gray-Hoverman for less than $10. It has no reflector. Used 1/2" pvc and aluminum wire. Put it on painters pole on the trailer and back side of chimney at home. It works very well. Gray-Hoverman

RE: Health Care Costs

I have a relative who is an emergency room doctor. He earns $400 per hour. No wonder is costs so much.

RE: Cortez RV park near Mesa Verde

When we camp in the Cortez area we use the Dolores River campgrounds. Love the sound of the river and the shade. link

RE: GREEEN Couple... Some questions

our trailer & tow vehicle All RVs come with a set of compromises. If you want large space, you require a large tow vehicle. Since you are using a Tacoma, I think a Casita would be perfect for your needs. We have attended over 2 dozen molded fiberglass rallies and the rig you are planning is very popular. We came to almost the same decision and have been very happy with our choices. We have camped from Oregon to Florida and half the state in between. No regrets.

RE: Planning a trip to Dallas, TX

I prefer Cedar Hill State Park. I love the Vineyards but it is flooded and no telling when it will reopen. The attached photo shows the entrance and all the water backed up from Lake Grapevine. The Vineyards - May 30, 2015

RE: Best Survival Food Companies???

The shelf life for MREs kept at 70 degrees is 100 months. They're probably safe long after that. retired Army food service NCO

RE: How difficult is it to get a title?

The state of Maine will register a travel trailer to a non-resident. If it's older than 15 years or weighs less than 3000 lbs. they do not issue a title. You pay sales tax of 5.5%, fill out paper work that is notarized, and provide a bill of sale. You get a license plate and a paper the is an official "State of Maine Vehicle Registration". Check online with Haskell Registration Agency.
