RE: length

Hi all...we currently have a 25' tt and have no problems getting in anywhere we wish to go. We r moving to a fiver and debating length. We do a lot of state parks and plan lots of travel in the west...national parks and blm land will be used on a regular basis. The dw wants an east west bedroom and lots of counter space in kitchen. This necessitates a unit over 34 feet...maybe up to 38. TV is a 2015 gmc denali 3500 crew srw. I would like to stay arnd 30 - 32'. Observations on length vs campsite accommodation will be appreciated. Thx..bo If you primarily use State Parks in Calif., I would stay 30' or under. Most state parks in calif. have a limit of around 32 ft. I like Heartland 5th. wheels but there are many brands to choose from. Your choices will be primarily dictated by the size 1/2, 3/4, 1 ton and power of your tow vehicle

RE: CA camping trip being planned South Coastal areas

Look at www.goodsam.com. You will find every campground listed in Calif. It will also give you all the information about each RV park. You can usually make reservations right on the website.

RE: Do you think this is a scam?

Of all the parts of our life the US govt. attempts to monitor, control, regulate, why dosen't the US govt. figure out a way to filter out and block scam email like this one? If the US govt. can create a plan to work with AT&T and Google that allows them to collect information on all of our emails and phone calls, this shouldn't be that difficult of a task:) Just a thought:)

RE: Newbie looking to live on the road for a year! suggestions?

Danv1317, Another "alternative", is the Aspen trailers from www.trailmasterinc.com. 800-398-9090. There are primarily designed for towing with motorcycles like a the big Hondas or Harley motorcycle. Their big "classic" model sells for about $4K. Look for their weights on the internet address.

RE: Newbie looking to live on the road for a year! suggestions?

This sure was a fast learning experience. We plan to only do this for 1 year and we literally just bought this F150 like 2 weeks ago. But i just didn't plan on using it to tow a trailer at that time. Kinda sucks. I dont think i'll find a trailer for 2400lbs anywhere. Will a weight distribution hitch help at all??? Take a look a the Lance line of trailers. For a little more money you can buy a new trailer. They also have resale. They have trailers as short as 17' up to about 25' ( just guessing from memory. Well constructed rigs.

RE: National disgrace

Is this an RV discussion forum or a propaganda political forum???? "Lack of common sense is the greatest form of mental illness in our society today"

RE: Newbie looking to live on the road for a year! suggestions?

Just some general suggestions/opinions: 1. Trying to find the ideal RV within 7 days will have a high probability of picking a RV that will not be a good choice. Give yourself a more realistic time line. 2. What size of RV you choose will depend on the tow vehicle truck you have. towing capacity, size of engine, 1/2, 3/4 ton truck etc etc, age of truck. 3. have your hitch attached/welded to the frame not the bumper, especially if your are going carry a motorcycle in the bed. 4. buy some aluminum ramps to get your motorcycle on/off. 5. use only 10 ply at least "e" rated tires Your dream sounds like a great adventure, good luck:)

RE: Becoming an Elk

A friend said I should consider becoming an Elk. Supposedly they have campgrounds all over the country and fairly inexpensive. Has anyone stayed at an Elk RV camp and do you need to be an Elk to camp at their camp sites. Yes, you need to sign up to become an Elk member in order to use any Elks lodge RV facility. My dues are $160 per year. You have to have an current Elks member sponsor you to be considered for membership, then you will go through a initiation process. Elk membership prices will vary slightly in different lodges. The RV facilities are based on first come, first served, no reservations. There is a limit to how many days you can stay at a particular Lodge. Generally about 10 days, then you have to vacate for a day and then you can reregister. You can buy Elks RV directory set up by regions , state by state. The USA is divided into 4 regions and each directory covers a region. The Directory will give you all the information about the facility and accomations. Some Elks lodges do not have RV facilities but most do. Most Elks lodges will allow you to park in there parking lot if all the RV sites are full, so you at least have a place to stay overnight buy you still have to be a Elks member. You have to show your Elks ID card every Lodge you want to use. The prices are generally about 50% of what you would pay in a normal/public RV park. Email privately if you want more information. You should NOT join the Elks Organization if using the RV facilities is the basis of your decision to join. Being a Elks member in good standing is much more than just finding a cheap place to RV.

RE: GS Roadside...so far so good

I also had a good experience with the vendor they used to pull my truck and trailer out of the mud. I was buried to the axle on the rear of the truck and on both trailer axles. The vendor first sent out a truck that didn't have a long enough cable or weight and power to pull me out, then they called in the big gun, which was a massive wrecker used for getting full concrete trucks pulled out. They used a cable about 1-1/2" thick to pull my truck and trailer about 180'. I hate to think what that would have cost me. Bruce X2 Have used GS for 25yrs. Can't imagine why any RVer would not have this policy:) I tow or break down has paid your yearly cost.

RE: How Do You fill LP Tanks?

With regard to the misinformation regarding transporting your "own" LP tanks to get them refilled------- "LACK OF COMMON SENSE IS THE GREATEST MENTAL ILLNESS OF MANKIND" :h:S

RE: Cancelling Winter Trip

The RV resort we stay in every winter has a policy of pre pay but if you are unable to show up, they just transfer your reservation $$$$ to the next year. The also have a refund for medical conditions..

RE: How Do You fill LP Tanks?

Thanks for your comments and suggestions. I'll try to find a couple milk crates and will transport the tanks in a vertical position. Filling the tanks I thought was "part of the deal". They said they don't have access to LP facilities. We're not done yet.... If you on insist that filling the propane tanks is a condition of you buying the TT, I think you will the dealer will all of a sudden will find "ACCESS" to a LP facility:):):):)

RE: How Do You fill LP Tanks?

...and the first "purge" and refill will cost more than a normal refill. BTW, on the last 2 new trailers I bought, they came with full tanks. I agree!!!! I would tell the dealer that 2 full tanks has to be part of the deal to buy the TT !!!!!

RE: Did you change from DirecTV to Dish???

Have always had Dish and been satisfied. Phone Tech support has always been able to resolve most issues. If not, they will send a tech out to the house to take care of it.

RE: Alaska to/fro

I'm in the group that believes that going over the border sucks. If you have to worry about that stuff then you should just stay put. Since gun's are a problem, passports too, why go??? I can find much more places to go here in the 48, the rest can go to, well, you know where. Curious? What is the name of this group/organization? how many members are there? where is there national headquarters? :):):):):):):)

I have had the pic of our coach posted in my profile for a year and this past week it disappeared. :? What's up with that?

Anybody else get erased lately? :h Yes, my signature was ok but the picture was not showing up. Interesting, when I first replied to your email, my sig. & picture showed, now my picture is gone:h

RE: Alaska to/fro

Geez...passports aren't that difficult to obtain. Just get one and stop worrying about it. Totally agree!!!!!!!! Just because you have a passport does not mean you have to use it and you are still not required to travel out of the USA:) I am curious as to the real reason he is making such big deal out of traveling out of the usa!!!! political, previous bad experience ????????? Life is too short:)
