RE: Tesla towing an Air Stream

$85,000 Tesla + $80,000 Airstream not counting tax, title, and license. Even if I had the money, it's not for me.

RE: Lake Erie Camping

Put-In-Bay is a wonderful place but it's not cheap to camp there. Miller Ferry runs from Catawba, OH and charges $16 for a car and $34 for a large trailer plus $7 per person one way. So getting there and back is $114 for us. :( ferry rates

RE: Help identify the make, year, model of this trailer

The 17 character VIN did not became mandatory until 1981. You're probably looking for a 4 or 5 digit serial number. It may be stamped into the steel of the tongue. On my 1980 it's on a sheet of paper inside the closet.

RE: How we make RV pizza

Nice video. Our trailer lacks an oven so we make pizza outside on a Cobb Grill. We like our "camping pizza" so much that we often make it at home. Cobb Grill pizza

RE: What place has made you Blush, cry, make you proud...?

If you have not experienced it, you must sit through the video presentation at Fort McHenry National Monument in Baltimore. It tells the story of the writing of the Star Spangled Banner. It ends with the U.S. Naval Academy choir singing and a surprise. My eyes water just recalling it.

RE: Cooking on the Campfire

The point of seasoning is to seal the cast iron surface with carbon. If the pores in the cast iron are "open", would it not rust every time it gets water on it?

RE: Question about using Anderson levelers

I use them and like them. I have a small, single axle trailer. There are "how to" videos on Youtube.

RE: Petit Jean SP

And, the river that runs through Wichita, KS is the "are KANSAS" river; not the "ARE CAN saw" river.

RE: Minivan towing 16' Scamp

I see no problem with towing a 16' Scamp. I've tow round trips with only minivans from DFW to Colorado, Ohio, South Dakota, Oregon, Minnesota, and Florida. Towing 13' or 17' travel trailers with zero problems.

RE: Cast Iron Pie's

For dessert, use slices of store bought angel food cake.

RE: home made shower?

You may also need a water catch basin. Many parks will not allow gray water on the ground.

RE: Storage problem, Smaller wheels?

What about an extra of wheels in the current size but with no tires?

RE: Coast to coast in an Electric car towing a trailer.

I thought it was interesting that the tow vehicle costs $50,000 and the trailer costs $27,760.
