RE: Bush Library information

Left out of the above discussion is Cedar Hill State Park. It's very nice and located in southwest Dallas county. The Bush Library is on the SMU campus in University Park, TX. It is 23 miles from Cedar Hill to SMU, 29 miles from McKinney to SMU, and 35 miles from Melissa to SMU. Cedar Hill State Park

RE: 13" tires

The only 13" tire I buy is the Maxxis M8008 radial.

RE: Maxxis Ue-168

Many owners on the Casita forums use the Maxxis UE168 and report zero problems. Other options for 14" non ST tires are Hankook RA08 and Kumho Radial 857. I use the Kumho on my Bigfoot and have been very pleased.

RE: Dallas area campgrounds

Cedar Hill State Park is nice and located in Dallas County. The DFW area very large so it would help if we knew what part you need to be near. The Vineyards is very nice but pricey and not in Dallas County. In fact, none of the above campgrounds is in Dallas County. Cedar Hill SP

RE: US 285 Ft. Worth to Amarillo

There are 2 very nice state rest areas on this route. One is near Quanah and the other near Hedley. Also there's a good RV park at Goodlett, Ole Town Cotton Gin RV.

RE: Austin, TX to Orlando, FL

It's a long haul but can be done. We did Disney spring break 2014 and drove Orlando to Mobile the 1st day and Mobile to Dallas the 2nd day.

RE: Travel Trailer graphics faded

The original vinyl stripes on our 1980 Bigfoot were orange and olive green. The green was faded and the strips did not go over the door or frig vent. I masked the edges and used Krylon Fusion hunter green on the olive and Rust-Oleum seafoam spray can on the orange. Five year in the Texas and they still look good. original new

RE: What is the oldest thing you take with you camping or rving?

My uncle, Roy McMillan, bought a Dietz Comet kerosene lantern with money from his first major league baseball contract in 1954. I now have it and use it often.

RE: Toll Road Suprise

The Texas toll systems have a minimum total amount before you are mailed a bill. If you never reach that total, you're never billed. They are very lax with enforcement. Lately there are several news stories of unpaid bills over $50,000.

RE: campgrounds western arkansas

You might also look at Beavers Bend State Park in far southeast Oklahoma (near Idabel). It looks and feels like Arkansas and the river below Beaver Lake is stocked with trout.

RE: Toll Road Suprise

The 3 Texas toll systems (DFW, Houston, Austin) use only toll cameras and know if you are towing or not.

RE: snacks to share while at campfire..

Roast marshmallow over fire, while hot, dip it in a glass of Bailey's Irish Cream, eat. Simple and good.

RE: Small trailer with oven

Those that must bake inside the RV must not camp in the summer in the South. It's 100+ degrees F. during the day and still 95 degrees at 10 PM. Over night low may be 80 and you want to add heat inside the RV. If it can't be cooked outside, we don't cook. We can chose between 4 different size Dutch ovens, old Coleman folding box oven, or electric toaster oven for baking; but all outside. By the way, biscuits can be cooked in a cast iron skillet with a lid.

RE: Trying to register a 1971 Travel Trailer with no VIN.

You may be looking for a short serial number and not a modern VIN. I have a 1971 Compact Jr made in Chatsworth, CA and it has a one letter and four digit serial number. Good luck.

RE: On the need to be fully caffeinated

People were grinding coffee beans long before electricity was in homes. Search eBay for " manual coffee grinders". You will find many there, some antique and some new.
