RE: Favorite Boondocking Spot in Northeast?

Very few places in southern New England where you can truly "boondock" - which I would take to mean finding a logging road in the woods and pull off somewhere to camp. Hopefully someone here with experience with northern New England will give advice. A lot of state parks, though, that are "rustic" (no hookups) are around! How much experience do you have "camping" at RV campgrounds? The way reservations work (or don't, lol!), hookups, septic, campground rules (both written and unwritten)? One issue you may have is trying to get campsites for 6 campers (yours and 5 others if I am understanding you) at this late date. What will really open up your options is if you plan on camping from Sunday night until Friday morning, skipping the weekend. Most campgrounds have plenty of room during the week, but weekends can be busy. Hammonassette State Park in Connecticut may have room for a bunch of campers during the week. Right on Long Island Sound. Majority of campsites have no hookups - some electric only sites might be available at the last minute. Campsites here are flat and really big. A long trip you may find really cool is to drive up to Acadia in Maine. For there, you certainly need to make reservations early, but we love going there. You've got lots of camping adventures ahead of you!

RE: My 1984 Travel Lite 17 footer

Nice work! That camper is laid out almost exactly like an old 13 foot Sunline that friends had years ago. The color scheme is identical.

RE: Need help choosing generator(s)

I am just curious about your plans with your camper. Are you sure you need a generator(s)? You are on Long Island - the majority of campgrounds around you will have electrical hookups. Are you planning on "boondocking" or extended camping trips?

RE: Looking to purchase 1973 Terry...Newbie questions

That camper has no interior. Looks like a major renovation project to me. At most, if I really wanted to do it, I'd take the camper off the owners hands for no charge.

RE: Do Canadians pay tolls?

Camera-only tolls are the wave of the future. From Connecticut going north, toll booths with actual people are becoming non-existent. It does make for faster and easier driving, as you don't have to worry about traffic backups at tolls and whether or not you have the money. How the photo-tolls bill out-of-country drivers I don't know. As previously mentioned, most of the photo tolls and speed traps are considered minor violations, so agencies may not bother spending time on going after out of country vehicles. BUT.... in today's world, everything is tracked by computer! Sure, you can ignore that toll bill / speed trap ticket, but the information is kept and possibly years down the road an old ticket may come back to haunt you.

RE: Cape Cod

P-town (Provincetown) is always interesting to wander around, at the tip of the Cape. There is a really good Army / Navy type surplus store there. At least I'm assuming it is still there, it has been a few years since we've been there.

RE: Kids who get car sick

My 4 year old gets car sick in about 10 miles it seems. My wife got him the wrist bands that have the little metal dot that presses on the inside of his wrist. I thought it was a joke but the darn things work. Who knew? I don't know whether or not they really "work", but sometimes people are helped just by the idea that something is being done. You never know sometimes, and it is worth trying!

RE: CHP doing their best!! THANK YOU!

Good job CHP! It is called "using discretion"... Whatever the situation was, the officers on scene decided the best thing to do was to get the trailer towed right away. Tow trucks may not have been available, traffic safety situation, possibly the people just didn't have the money... The officers did what they thought best in that situation.

RE: Got to be a better way.

lol, I swear even the 20lb tanks are heavier than they were 20 years ago...

RE: What is the "cold" temperature for tire inflation?

a cold tire is one that has been sitting, say over night or several hours with out movement This is what I figure. I check tire pressure in the morning.

RE: Cape Cod

We stayed at Atlantic Oaks a few years ago and really liked the campground. Pull thru sites were surprisingly roomy. The campground is directly on the Rail Trail, a really, really cool bicycle path that used to be a railroad line that runs up and down the middle of the Cape.

RE: Tiny Houses

check out Tumbleweed Tiny Homes. Some quality as RVs. Click Here From their site: The Cypress is a RVIA Certified Travel Trailer RV with standard RV hookups for water and electrical. Included is our On-Site Warranty. Delivery to your door is an option. I hope they are not the same "quality" as RVs, I would not use that as a selling point! I thought tiny homes were much, much higher quality! Sort of related: Neighbors of mine built a very small house on a small piece of property. It came out very nice, basically a tiny Cape style house. I asked how they liked it, and they sort of shrugged and said it is a bit tight, "kind of like living in a camper"... lol!

RE: Black Tank Flush

I have a Flagstaff Microlite 23LB and it has a black tank flush connection on the back. Definitely a newbie question but how does it work? I opened the cover and there is an opening covered by a mesh screen. Thanks for any help. Is the "cover" and "mesh screen" where you would attach a garden hose? If so, that screen is just a standard debris screen built into the washer. If it is something else, I don't know.

RE: Plugged or Unplug???

We don't camp every weekend, so I unplug our TT between camping trips if it is going to be more than a couple weeks. A few days before camping, plug it back in and turn on the refrig. This has worked well for us for years.

RE: Tire rotation - what's best for towing?

My fronts lose tread faster than the rears - mostly due to limited slip rear end and tight turning with local driving from what I can tell. smokeylew, how much of a tread difference is there?

RE: New TT Pick-up Inspection - Should I use a professional?

It seems like you are doing your homework and will be prepared to do your own inspection. To me, a professional inspector is really better suited for when you are buying a used camper. Pick up your camper and go camp!

RE: Shift! **** You Shift!

RE: Recent Reviews on rvparkreviews.com are hilarious

Since bikes keep getting brought up, why is not ok for bicycles to be ridden but it's ok for people to drive around in golf carts? I get it, it's a free country meaning the owner can make whatever rule he wants. So I just go elsewhere and ask the question before I reserve. Just wondering why that is accepted but bicycles aren't. I think in most places it is just where the bikes are being ridden... for instance not on the walkways, or around the pool, etc. Bikes are fine, just don't ride them into the camp store!
