RE: True, but scary, hitch story

Glad nothing bad happened. I can see that happening from leaning over hitch, looking straight down. I've had similar happen with equipment trailers - which is why I've developed the habit of stopping and re-checking the hitch about 50 feet down the road - especially if something "feels not right" when pulling out. Experience is a tough, but effective, teacher!

So it isn't a travel trailer? Is it a motorhome? Front or rear engine? Diesel or gas? Class C? Class B? More information about the camper would be better if you want ideas from this forum.

Why is everyone saying not to post here about the issue?? People post here Constantly about issues with Camping World! Then they get a response from the "rapid response team", and hopefully attention is paid to their issue. This has been going on for years. causes4cure, posting more details (including make and model of camper) about what happened may get you more info here to help out. Including whether or not the issue would be warranty / sale related. If you are thinking of pursuing legal issues, then you may want to reconsider posting on an open forum like this.

RE: electric cost

jerboys, are you planning on weekend camping or long term staying at one campground? Most campgrounds charge a set campsite rate for weekend camping and/or only a few days, that won't change if you use a lot of electric (usually air conditioner running). Some campgrounds will charge extra if you have an air conditioner - we've only run into this once. Most campgrounds that I've seen where you stay for the whole season (long-term, or "seasonal") will have electric meters at your site and you pay separately for electricity (or extra use is added to your regular bill). It varies on how long you are planning on staying and the campground. Most campground websites will make their billing policy clear, or you can just call them and ask.

RE: Loud water pump

I found that putting the inexpensive foam pipe insulation on the pipes near the pump made a huge difference... they were leaning against the wall, and the vibration was loud.

RE: Poll

Usually put the blinds down at night... but angle them so the morning sun comes in. With the blinds angled up like that, an open window provides good fresh air.

RE: Trailer Vented With Furnace On?

I have not wintered in a camper... but, I can't imagine not venting a (relatively) small box like that. I would think venting (at least a little bit) would reduce condensation. Plus, you would get fresh air in and stale air out.

RE: TT Tire Pressure Rookie Question

Just keep an eye on the one that was slightly lower.

RE: Camping well below freezing - Sweden over winter

Interesting thread! I have not been in extreme cold. I am curious about heating. Since the person has "electric" at the campsite, what about electric heat? Everyone keeps talking about propane heaters. Put an electric heater somewhere in the camper. I figure electric heaters don't put out as much BTUs as a propane forced air heater, but would they be able to keep the camper at least livable (well, survivable)?

RE: Need help finding first travel trailer

There are a variety of things to think about with cold weather camping, but the biggest with a camper is water freezing. You want a bathroom and shower - that means you will have water on board and pipes filled with water. Water freezes in winter and bursts out of whatever is holding it. "4 season" campers are designed to avoid that, including using insulated/heated water tanks and pipes that run inside the camper to use camper heat to stay unfrozen. Think about camping without using your own bathroom and shower. Can you use facilities at the mountain resorts you will be boarding at? That would make one part of winter camping much easier. A 15 foot or smaller camper is going to get REALLY cozy with 4 adults. It certainly can be done, especially with good friends for weekend trips. As long as you don't do it for months at a time! lol Do you know anyone who has done what you are thinking? Traveling in winter to different places for snowboarding? Ask them what their experience has been. Also, towing on slippery roads can be rather exciting, to put it mildly. You may want to wait a day or two after snowstorms to let the roads get cleared and de-iced. With some planning, it sounds like you might have one heck of a fun winter ahead of you!

RE: How long is too long to travel In a fifth wheel.

I don't have a 5th wheel or do I full time, but... you shouldn't have much trouble finding camping spots. Since you are towing, you will unhitch and you can explore with your truck. Your camping / seasonal spot doesn't have to be right next to wherever you want to explore.

RE: Concord and Lexington, Mass

Went to the Colonial Inn! We had a "Linner", Lunch/Dinner at around 2:30pm so no problem getting a table. Actually it was a beautiful day, so we got a table out on the porch. Very good food, good service, great atmosphere. I can certainly recommend it. A little expensive, but what I expected for that type of a good restaurant in an area like that. This was on a Sunday, so we found a great place to park - right down the street behind the Colonial Inn is a drug store and bank parking lot. We didn't get to the Concord Museum in time - we heard that it is worth visiting. Next time! We went to the Minuteman National Park visitor's center and saw the 20 minute presentation - really cool. Done very differently. Looks like you are going to see a stage show with props and all. But they use video, lighting, and LED maps to explain about the very beginning of the Revolutionary War. Very good. Also went to the North Bridge. Beautiful "visitor's center", which is a gorgeous brick colonial house overlooking the bridge (it is actually the 3rd bridge since the original). Quick 8 minute video talking about the bridge, and that it is the location of "The shot heard 'round the world". The shot heard round the world was actually not the first shot in this battle, but it was where the first shot was fired by militia who received a direct order to fire on the King's troops. Also saw the Minuteman statue - Farmer holding a gun in one hand and a farm plow in the other. I was a little surprised at how, well, "small" the visitor centers and locations are. Considering that the events that happened were world changing. But as my wife pointed out, it was really a small skirmish - that started the Revolutionary War. We did not get to Walden Pond. We had a great weekend, and thanks for the tips and ideas!

RE: Building an RV Park from scratch under 50k?

In my little town (and surrounding towns), building permits are a relative thing. If you have relatives in the town hall, no problems - whether or not you built before or after "forgetting" to get a permit. Or if you don't have relatives, a few nice lunches for town officials goes a long way. And learning where their "watering holes" are for happy hour after work to become friends. There is a legend in my parts that one builder did actually do everything "legally"... but he went out of business. Either way, it does take money -- and $50,000 may just be the "initiation fee"! lol Sorry, just spend too long sometimes gossiping about local politics. As I and others have said, go ahead and help your friends however you can, but not financially. Even if it turns out to be a big money maker business, it is rarely good to mix friends, family, and money.

RE: Airstream for $2000!?!?!

Here is the ad on craigslist. https://houston.craigslist.org/rvd/5772605084.html Considering the misspellings, mistakes in ad (transmission in a trailer??) and lack of pictures, I would be very suspicious.

RE: Building an RV Park from scratch under 50k?

That's my worry that its too little and the process is backwards and they're so ....willfully ignorant, they think I'm a buzzkill when I link them to articles or facts or ask questions about permits and building plans... Honestly, if you've done what you can (and it sounds like you have), just back off and help them out when you go visit. Just don't "invest" any of your own money. Otherwise you will lose your friends. Sometimes people just have a need to give something a try. Sometimes it works! A lot of times it doesn't, and is chalked up to a learning experience. Sometimes learning experiences can be expensive...

RE: Concord and Lexington, Mass

Thanks for the meal suggestions... we are planning on eating out on Sunday night.

RE: Concord and Lexington, Mass

Thanks! We were wondering about Walden Pond. I just keep seeing signs for it on the highway so thought we'd stop in and at least say we'd been there. I certainly want to see Concord and Lexington, so we'll see how time goes.

Concord and Lexington, Mass

Saturday we'll be going up to Boston Minuteman Campground and check out Concord and Lexington - Revolutionary War history. Getting to the campground on Saturday, planning on spending Sunday being touristy, then coming home on Monday. May also swing by Waldon Pond to check that out. Any ideas or specifics about the area? Thanks!

RE: Excited for Fall

Actually camping in the "hinterlands" of New Jersey in October! We found Mahlon Dickerson Reservation this summer and are looking forward to being there next month. Shhh... don't tell anyone else, the place is great. Woods, hiking trails, water and electric, paved sites, lots of room between sites... Love fall in general. Long sleeve shirt in morning, short sleeve in afternoon. Smell of backyard fires, apple cider, Halloween, and on and on...
