RE: Austin, El Paso, Tuscon, Phoenix

FYI It looks like you might have dogs so you need to be very aware of Cholla cactus. Cholla cactus spines become airborne very easy this is where the nickname jumping cactus comes from. The ground can be covered with them. The spine are very fine and can get in a dogs paw very easily and because they are so fine they cannot be totally removed ending up with festering sores sometime all the way up to the top of the foot. Since dogs try to clean themselves the spines also end up in there mouth. There is Cholla almost everywhere but Lost Dutchman State Park does have a huge amount of Cholla. We do love that park but we are very careful when we walk our dog and closely exam the campsite ground.

RE: Las vegas to Grand Canyon on to Sante Fe

I would leave Las Vegas and go to Zion National Park then to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon(less crowded and IMHO more scenic)to Monument Valley (Many John Wayne movies filmed there) to Mesa Verde National Park to Durango (ride the Durango Silverton Train) off to Chama and then Santa Fe.

RE: What do you use to raise height of your chairs?

Cushions are not going to allow the seats to clear the step up to be able to swivel. Per the OP, the seats swivel just fine - the issue is just the leg room once the seats are swiveled around to house with the higher flooring. My bad:?

RE: Toad or No Toad?

We never had a toad and would just rent a car if we needed to go someplace and that was at most once a year. We also took tours instead of driving. We camp hosted for the first time last year and there were no car rental available for our location so this year we will be towing with a Acme tow dolly with surge brakes and a Hitch it Safe on the hitch. As far as your Fit not being able to tow four down I have read here on the forum that the Honda CRV's after a certain year per Honda are not towable 4 down but apparently that is only to release Honda from liability and people are still towing 4 down newer CRV's following the "old" towing procedure. I would check to see if the applies to your Fit.

RE: Help friends!

We are headed to Denver Monday morning and would be really like a solid route. Don't need to make good time.. just easy based on weather, flat, and amount of stops. Any help would be extremely helpful. I posted once before but but we now have this bad weather all around. Thank you! Take one of the routes that have been suggested to you and everyday before heading out in the morning check the weather reports for the next leg of your trip and check the road conditions as well. If bad stay where you are till they are not bad. Links to highway conditions

RE: Size of Class C?

Also depends on where you plan to stay. Some state and federal campgrounds have 26 to 27 foot maximum lengths. And yes I have seen this enforced. This is not the norm. We used many of these parks with our 40' motorhome. That is why I said SOME. And IMHO the original poster should be told that SOME do exist so that they can check the places that they want to stay at to make sure that they can stay if they are in a 30 foot plus RV. I think that people that I saw that were forced to leave a park late in the day because there RV was to long would have liked to have had that info beforehand.

RE: Financing vs. buying older model?

Rent first is a great idea. When buying must not have any leaks. When you do decide to buy would suggest looking for a mobile RV mechanic in your area and find out what they charge for a PDI pre delivery inspection. This should uncover the pigs with lipstick that were mentioned.

RE: Moab, Ut to Moraine Park, Rocky Mountain.

152 miles from Moab is the turn off to one of our favorite parks Rifle Falls State Park. This was our first stop after we left RMNP Yes it is 32 miles from the Interstate but worth every mile.5 minute walk from the campground.

RE: Emergency Severe Weather Notifications

I have a Midland weather radio which has a "Travel Mode" that automatically locates the NOAA weather station nearest to your county and locks into that broadcast. You don't need to reprogram anything, just need to push the Travel Mode button. It can be set to sound an alarm for any type of warning in your area. https://midlandusa.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/HH54_radio1-600x400.jpg X2

RE: Spare Tire Mount..Rear Bumper Best Location?

All interesting discussions. 2003 Winnebago Mini 24V here. Spare is mounded underneath between frame rails with bolt on bracket. Nightmare to lower if I ever had to on the side of road. Always carry moving blanket because you can not access it unless you are lying underneath vehicle. I agree that on square bumper is not strong enough. Might be ok if the tire mount was directly on the frame extension where it connects to the square bumper but not ideal. Now you all got me thinking a front mount would be better. Has any one seen a front bumper mount available? Two steps 1st Front Mount Hitch Second Hitch mounted tire carriers that have been mentioned in earlier responses.

RE: Hitch it Safe

Where are these folks vacationing that their campers are being stolen right off the truck? Is there a certain subset of travelers that enjoys camping in high crime areas, perhaps hoping to engage in an armed confrontation? My thoughts run more to that it will stop it from coming of the ball if it comes unhitched while driving.

Hitch it Safe

Seems like a great idea and do not see any downside. Video company

RE: Crossing the USA from Tampa, FL to Western USA and back

How much time are you going to have? How many miles do you want to drive in a day?

RE: Try it before buying it.

Updated info Per U-Haul rentals there dingy's do NOT have brakes Per Penske rentals there dingy's do HAVE brakes. Rented a U-Haul before I knew this and went on drive North of Phoenix area and the RV handled towing up grades just fine. However did have a pucker moment during a braking event. IMHO If the dolly had had brakes the pucker factor would have been greatly reduced. Have decided to go ahead with purchase of a Acme tow dolly with surge braking. In the near future will be able to tell the difference between brakes or no brakes for a dingy for my application.

RE: Dingy braking - do, did, or won't

Keep in mind the main rule of any insurance company is to find a way not to pay and leave you holding the bag. If you go without you better go through your insurance policy with a fine tooth comb and be able to understand all the insurance legal speak or you could loose everything you own. Where on your insurance policy do you find anything that even addresses the use of auxiliary braking? What company do you have? I want to research that - I may change companies. You have just proven my point. If you have a accident and do not have auxiliary braking and it is or is not required by law are you covered or not Could they claim you were knowingly operating a vehicle in an unsafe condition and deny the claim I have no idea. My point was and is that insurance companies will look for any loophole to keep from paying a claim. You might be smarter than I am and understand every thing in your policy but I know I do not. The cost for auxiliary breaking for that reason alone not counting that it makes you, your family and those on the road with you safer IMHO is worth it.
