RE: Free Overnight parking around Boston

There are three Travel Centers of America in Connecticut and one in New Hampshire. Stayed at the one near Danbury a couple of weeks ago. A bit noisy with trucks coming and going all night but that didn't bother us. Safe as can be (IMHO). The price is right -- spend $25 in the store and/or restaurant and it's free. Supper and breakfast took care of that. All are right near the highway so the access is easy, and plenty of room to manouver. Reservations available for a small fee, otherwise it's as available. Locations available on the web. Look for a huge TA sign when you're in the area. Fwed. Fwed...where did you find a Travel Center near Danbury?...or did you mean in Southington at the junction of I-691 and I-84? Chuck

RE: Country Haven New Holland, PA

This is now a KOA campground. Lancaster/New Holland KOA. Wonder if the owners will be a bit more customer friendly now that they are KOA? We are here as I write this...It is a campground with a "Million Dollar " view in MHO.......This is the 2nd time this year we have stayed here....once as Country Haven and now as the Lancaster-New Holland KOA......As stated the male owner is friendly and talkative , while his female counterpart is somewhat quick in her answers....but we all have our good and bad points They have considerable rules,but as to now, they have not been a factor in either stay...which have been very enjoyable..and we would return again..... First time we were here,was with our daughter and family.....in two motorhome...with 3 boys..8,6 and 2.....and never had a problem then either.. CHuck

RE: cape cod beachfront camping

Looking for recommendations for full hookup campgrounds that are on the beach or as close to it as possible. We are in a 31 foot class C Thanks! Campers Haven...Dennissport...right across from their own private beach...is mix of seasonal and transient sites.....the one drawback is the seasonal people think they run the choice and complain non-stop..have to ignore them Scossett Campground...right on the canal in Sagmore....located on the bike trail of the Cape cod canal...and across parking lot from the beach...

RE: Free Overnight parking around Boston

We will be traveling from Maryland to Maine and we are looking for a spot stop half way and overnight for free. My wife is very funny about this as she should be so looking for something very safe if anyone has suggestions. Not sure what you think is half way...but Mohegan Sun Casino in Ct has a dedicated RV lot ...no hookup...but extremely safe and patrolled ...we stay there frequently...Chuck

RE: Trip Coventry CT to Gettysburg PA

In mid-September we are taking out Kodiak 21' TT to the Gettysburg PA area. Last time I drove in that direction I-81 west of Milford was totally ripped up. Does anybody know about conditions on I-84 in CT, NY,PA. Then I-81 PA to Harrisburg and then from Harrisburg to Gettysburg? We are new to dragging a TT and this will be our longest haul to-date. TIA If you are trying to get around the on going construction...I would go 84 to 684 to 287 thru White Plains...stay on 287 over the Tap...to I-78 to I-81...probably the best at this point...Chuck

RE: Advice please route from NH to VA

Thank you all for your advice and suggestions! Such a pleasure these members are! Boatless, we do this trip 4 to 5 times a year Now we live in Ct near the NY border... but Coming down 84 into Hartford is no big deal..in less than 15 minutes you will be thru it....less traffic then 495 going thru Lowell...so do 84 to Newburgh ,NY..go south on I-87 to Sufferin,NY..there pickup 287 west/south to I-78 it is 45 miles ..go I-78 west to I-81...nice ride ..then 81 west..to I-66 near Front Royal,Va...go on 66 for 25 miles to RT 17 toward Warrenton,Va,do the by-pas and stay on 17 all the way to 95 in Spotavanynia...then to your destination.... As for campgrounds..there is Western Village in Carslile ,Pa..or if you want to go more there is Falling Waters campsite in Falling Waters W Va..exit 23 off 81...or another 30-40 miles is Candy Hill in Winchester ,Va Any questions ,just ask away..Chuck

RE: Diamond Shield

Does anyone know of a satisfactory alternative to Diamond Shield on the front of my '04 Dutch Star? When the coach was 4 years old, the vinyl material was turning loose around the headlights and around the edges, etc. I called Diamond Shield in hopes that it would still be under warranty, but was told that it was out of warranty. They did however agree to supply the material and I would only have to pay the labor to replace it, which came to $800. Now the material is crazing and starting to release at the edges again and I have had it with Diamond Shield. Has anyone else experienced this? If I remove this material, what will the paint underneath look like? The coach is always stored under my RV port but front is subject to sun for part of the day. I wouldn't think this gets hot enough to affect the Diamond Shield. Wish there was one...that Diamond Shield is really **** and worst than not having it...ordering new coach and am asking that it not be applied...Chuck

RE: RV Parks from Crofton, MD to Charleston, SC

We will be traveling in our motorhome from Crofton MD to final destination of Charleston, SC. We would like to go about three hours the first night and finish the trip the following day or about five more hours. Need recommendations for an overnight campground South of Richmond VA on I-95. Americamp at Ashland or Yogi Bear at Emporia VA are being considered. Anyone stay at either one? Any other suggestions are welcome. Thanks! Ashland is north of Richmond..just....but if you can make it to the NC border...go to Carolina Crossroads....nice overnight..Chuck

RE: Route 81 to 40 to Nashville

What campground did you stay at in Nashville....I am looking to go next year and was looking for a nice RV resort We stayed at Nashville KOA in their brand new premium sites with RV pads and patio furniture all which were well groomed with grass and shrubbery. For some the $74/night may seem like a lot, but when you camp in the Northeast $74/night is a bargain. we stayed at 2 Rivers campground which is nice enough....agree with gcloss..when you come from the Northeast,where the streets are lined with GOLD....high prices roll off your back...Chuck

RE: SE New England to Charlotte, NC (Carowinds)

We have a Coaster Crew event coming up in a few weeks at Carowinds in Charlotte, NC. Still debating on my route. I95 to I85 seems flatter, but round trip tolls will cost me over $180. I81 to I77 is a bit longer, and probably hillier, and avoids most Metro areas. Any input? Towing a Roo 183 with a Jeep Liberty Diesel. We do this trip through there maybe 4 or 5 times a year from western Ct...I would suggest that you come down 95 from RI to rt 9 ,to 91 south to 691 to 84,then stay on 84 to Newburgh,NY....there go south on 87 to Sufferin,NY and take 287 west to 78,,,roughly 45 miles to 78....stay on 78 to 81....stay on 81 to 77 in Wythesville,Va...77 straight down to your destination....also many campgrounds to chose from..IM me if you want any info Now, coming home...if you want to go to Kings Dominion....go the by-pass out of campground to 85 to 95 up to Kings..straight thru Richmond as all the construction is done ..we just came thru there last Friday...when you leave Kings go up 95 to Spotavanya,Va and take rt 17 north toward Warrenton,Va to I-66 to I-81...and just repeat the above directions in reverse.... We use both of these routes..switching back and forth for a change Chuck

RE: North Florida and South Georgia

How about US 84 west to Thomasville, then US 319 through Tallahassee, Crawfordville, Sopchoppy, etc. to US 98. Might be a tad further but these roads are certainly clear and suitable for any sized RV. lizzie (PS. sorry about the AC) I would do 84 to Thomasville as noted.....then in Thomasville pickup rt 19 straight to rt 27 then 27 into 319..Capital Circle ....down to 98....this put you on the south side of Tally..we go in this way for football all fall...Chuck I heard ya...but there is hardy any traffic on that part of 27 and bring him to the same spot on 319....me thinks....there is only 2 lights on 27 and one is 319...Chuck

RE: Campground in Cape Cod

Scusset Beach State Reservation. The campground is adjacent (walking distance) to the Atlantic Ocean beaches and the beginning of the Cape Cod Canal. The Canal has paved bike/walking paths wide enough for official cars to pass so you can bike-ride abreast in spots if you like, depending on pedestrian traffic. Stop for ice cream/drinks at the small store along the Canal banks or continue under the Bourne bridge into the Town of Bourne ahead. Observe the boats transiting the canal and the fishermen on the Canal banks. Sometimes you may see an ocean liner snake it's way along, quite a sight! Cross the Sagamore or Bourne bridges by bike and explore the paths on the other side of the Canal. The Canal is several miles long though so pace yourselves to your kids' abilities. Regards and Have Fun! this is a great campground but has been closed while they upgrade their elect...half will take reservations starting July 1 the other half on Aug 1...the bike trail is 7 1/2 miles long to Buzzard Bay......where their are many rest..the beach on the bay side is across the parking lot Second choice would be Atlantic Oaks i Eastham ..as noted here....has bike trail at back of campground that is unlimited..to P-Town and 1 mile to Nat'l Seashore Park....and Arnolds next store is all you need....Chuck

RE: Campground to beware of

It gets a 'good' rating on rvparkreviews.com. Most reviewers commented on the narrow sites. I noticed that the price of a night's stay is pretty low, so I expect that set everyone's expectations. I guess it's one of those "you get what you pay for" places. I've stayed a few times....they don't hurt for business.....thought they were the same owners....only knock I have on the place is the sites are extremely narrow......but I didn't think the rates were cheap by any thought...fairly pricey in my book...Chuck

RE: I81 north of Harrisburgh to Scranton very rough

Drove up 81 to 84 this week and 81 is extremely rough. Much of it is in bad need of resurfacing. Sorry I didn't take I78 like I usually do. Also lots of closed shoulders with concrete barriers and very narrow lanes. Bill, should have gone 81 to 78 to 33 to 209.....like you do many other times....came back from Pa Dutch country yesterday...nice ride..Chuck

RE: Best route from Wilmington, De to Avon Ct.

In August we will be driving our 36 ft motorhome from Wilmington, De to Avon Ct. I just found out some of the routes do not allow RV's. What would be the best route to take from these locations? Thanks I would go like the last poster...up 95 to Woodbridge,NJ......and then pickup 287 to 87 North in Sufferin,NY to 84......once in Ct , I would go to Waterbury and take rt 8 north to rt 44 into Avon....only because of the construction on 84 passed Waterbury.... Now our daughter lives in Avon....and this is a little longer but misses the const and traffic...Chuck
