RE: stopping for a single night - rest area or rv park?

For me, it depends on the situation. If I'm on a long trip, I usually plan only 1 stop. Going to Myrtle Beach, I know I can plan a stop at a campground at somewhere past the half way mark and I can make it there next day. To Florida, however, I do my longest haul possible on the first day and stop wherever is convenient, be it a Cracker Barrel or Wally World. However, there are places I avoid. Walmart in Walterboro, SC for example. Stopped for a Friday night, about a half dozen other RVs in the lot. Local yahoos decided at around 2-3am to race around the parking lot in their ATVs revving the engines to the rev limiter.

RE: Canadians filling at the pump in USA

From what I understand, this trick works best on the east side of the Mississippi. On the West side, it's touch and go whether it'll work or not. No idea why, that's just what I read years ago here on this site. I, for one, have had no problems up and down the East coast for years using this.

RE: Health Insurance & Cellphone coverage for trip to Canada

You can get a sim card from Petro Canada for their phone plan. However, I have no experience with their service. I am also not sure how many Petro Can's you'll see out East. From what I've seen, the maritimes are predominately Irving gas stations. PC mobile from President's Choice (I believe that would be Atlantic Superstore out east) have relatively cheap phones and plans, just don't know how cost effective they are considering that you only need it for 3 weeks. It uses the Bell network so you'll have more than just a local coverage area.

RE: Good Sam vs Allstate Motor Club RV roadside assistance

Does Coach.net cover your everyday cars and spouse also or just TV + rv? Covers you, your spouse and personal cars. My wife has used Coach net when her clutch blew. Personal cars meaning not only those you own, but even one you borrow. Essentially, anything you, your spouse or dependents 24 and under could be driving. That's at the premier ($159/year) level. Anything lower and this "All Inclusive Coverage" is not included, so I believe then it will be only you and your RV.

RE: Camping I-81 South of Binghamton NY

Haven't been there in quite a while, but I know the Petro in Dupont, PA (exit 178B) used to have electric overnight spots for a few $. 570-654-5111

RE: KOA WEST NEW ORLEANS

Regardless of whether you like it or not, there are some out there who use this to make determinations on where to stay. Same thing with wifi. Some people don't care if there is no sewer hookup on your site as long as a honey wagon comes along often enough, some like to have the sewer there to empty the tanks as needed. What's not a big deal to you might be to someone else. Good to have this posted to advise.

RE: Who has best Roadside Assistance Program?

Looks like Coach-Net and Good Sam are the good ones. Ill have to look into both. I want something that will cover the RV of my Brother in Law or Parents take it out so I need to look in to that. Also I may be leaning towards Good Sam as it seems most campgrounds I go to offer a Good Sam discount. Yeah, you're not going to find that. You'll find plans that will cover whatever vehicle you're driving, or your dependents are driving, but you won't find a plan that will cover the vehicle regardless of who is driving. If on the off chance you do, let us know because I'm sure there are many who are looking.

RE: Border Crossing Question

With the MH it's always been quick and painless. I've had random searches when going across on shopping trips when the $ was closer to par, but never with the MH.

RE: $199 Monthly Special

Chuck, The $199 special is not being advertised now. Right now the push is to get people to reserve for next season before they leave. A few have already gone north and most start leaving right after St Patrick's day. The special was for one month only. The idea was to get people in the door to see the park and decide to return next season at regular rates. This is not your typical $350 a month RV Park. They do exist here but this is not one of them. Thank You.. I am new at this... and this winter I am spending 500 per month.. 3 1/2 months. I will be heading home in 1 week. just collecting ideas and WHERE to go visit. I apologize if I offended anyone. I see one park in RGV that is still advertising this on their website: RVer's SPECIAL 6 months for $675 ANY SITE Pay for 2 months and get 4 MONTHS FREE! Includes FREE WIFI, Water, Sewer Trash and Mowing. Does not include Electric (1st Timers Only, If you have not been to the park for the past 12 months)

RE: driving speed

I stick around 55MPH, even on interstates.

RE: $199 Monthly Special

I'm hoping these kind of deals are still around when I get to retire in 10 years! I saw one park somewhere in RGV where it was $199 for 6 months for first-timers right on the website.

RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

It's strange how much gas prices vary, even within the same region here. Here in Ottawa, today our gas prices can be found in the high 60's and low 70's per liter. Where, in Kingston, just an hour and a half or so away, prices are still in the 90's.

RE: Gassing Up

I've never had an issue with my 35 foot gasser towing. You'd be surprised how well you can maneuver around, it's all about your comfort level. Most gas stations are well oriented for a good in/out in at least one of their lanes. I don't spend any time pre-planning gas stops, I stop when I need to.

RE: looking for a CG recommendation near Disney World

OP already has his reservation, but we enjoyed the Orlando/Fort Summit KOA in Davenport when we were there. Free shuttle to/from Disney with one drop off and 2 pick-up times.

RE: Temporary Winterizing in North Florida

Ok, now I'm assuming that you are living inside the unit at the time. If so, then your water lines are fine. You should check, but I'm fairly certain that your holding tank and water compartment is heated when you use the furnace. If you are inside, you will be using the furnace, right? If that's the case, then I would disconnect the water line, put a decent amount of water in your water tank, since you can use the water pump when you need to potty during the freeze or have a shower when you wake up, and then hook the hose back up when everything is back to normal. I don't see a need to winterize anything.

RE: Best route to Nova Scotia from Toronto

I've done this trip 4 times. Only once with a MH. All times I stayed in Canada. That being said, when I return, I'll go state-side as long as I can. Once you hit the Ontario/Quebec border, the price of gas just keeps going up. If you stay on our side, just make sure you fill up before you get outside of Ontario because you don't want to get stuck paying Montreal prices if you're running on empty. Eek. There is some really nice scenery once you hit the hills in NB, though.

RE: Can You Buy Coach Net Before You Buy an RV

Also keep in mind that you're not insuring your RV or your cars per say, but yourself and another party in your household, such as your spouse. This means that you can be in any RV or car, no matter who it might belong to and have the same coverage, as if in your own vehicle. Not just ANOTHER person in your household like a spouse, but also dependent children under 24. This, however, only comes with the Premier Coach coverage. The 2 other lesser plans (Limited and Basic) DO NOT come with "All-Inclusive Coverage", thus only you are covered with the lesser 2 plans.

RE: Can You Buy Coach Net Before You Buy an RV

I have been with coach net for several years and I never had to provide any VIN ? You don't have to, but it doesn't hurt. Easy to do when you log in online.

RE: Have you bought a ten year old or older rv?

I bought my '99 five years ago.

RE: Key west Fla.

I believe there are a number of Shell Worlds all the way down to Key West.
