RE: Hunting Island / Savannah / Charleston

Yes the Crab Shack on Tybee has to be experienced but get the lunch buffet at the Pirate House in Savannah, the fried chicken is up there with Michie's Tavern in Virginia as the best I ever had.

RE: Toyota Tundra 5.7 Liter

The Tundra will do fine, mine was a 2010 with the 4.10 rear end and our first trailer weighed about 8000# loaded and we pulled fine this one closer to 9500# and it still pulled the mountains in Virginia like nothing. Ran out of payload was the main reason for getting rid of the truck.

Route to Rivers End-Tybee

Headed there in a few weeks and we will be coming down I-95, Google has me coming down 17 into Savannah and I would have to get over to Bay St as someone previously had suggested. The campground directions tell you to go all the way down to 204 to the Truman Pkwy and around Savannah due to a construction project. What is the best way that others have traveled or is there a better way than either of my first two options?

RE: Opinions on great Michigan Campgrounds For Young Children

Last year we spent time at the Traverse City KOA and they have a train they pull through the campground a couple of times a day and they really have a nice play area for young children. You can rent RC controlled cars there and drive on their dirt track and they have a large chess and checkers set outside also.

RE: Thinking about a longer trip with my travel trailer.

In 2013 I was in the same boat as you, only towed about 100 miles and we decided to take a road trip from Pittsburgh to Bar Harbor, Maine about 2000# miles roundtrip.I did my homework with truck stops for fuel but what happened was you really never needed it when we were near one, lesson learned because when they tell you fuel at the next exit it is not necessarily right there and it can be a bear to get in and out of. All being said, there are not regrets and we take our 1 big trip a year and start looking for the next destination before we take the trip in the current year. Good Luck!!

RE: Heavy Trailers

When we purchased our first trailer in 2009 I had a Silverado 1500 that only towed 6800#, I knew with the trailer I was pushing the limits but we were towing it to the campground 2 hrs away and leaving it there. We would just pull it out of storage and set it up so the once or twice I had to pull it was not much of a deal breaker. When we decided to travel I upgraded to the Tundra in 2010 which was more than enough for that trailer. We went to a bigger trailer in 2014 and the Tundra was more than capable but knowing we would still be traveling more and the eventual end game was to go to a fifth wheel I upgraded the truck last spring. The F350 6.2L is more than enough for this trailer and we really do not see us upgrading anything in the near future other than the hitch.

RE: Sleeping Bear vs Kelley's Island / Cedar Point

RE: Sleeping Bear vs Kelley's Island / Cedar Point

We did Sleeping Bear Dunes last year and I would pick that again in an instant. Still so much more we could have done and explored along the coast and over to Traverse City.

RE: Wondering how many are planning for 2017?

We have started discussions on possible destinations for 2017, nothing set in stone but we still have not finalized if we are taking a second extended trip in 2016.

RE: Can I just say...WE LOVE OUR ANDERSON LEVELERS!!!

I got mine before last season as a gift and tried to use them setting up in spring and they became ski's because it was wet and damp. I thought I had solved the problem after we came back to our seasonal site from vacation by putting the anti slip tape on them and using a 2 x 6 because I needed a little more lift, unfortunately the same thing happened. I have given thought to finding a rubber pad to use and the stair tread idea may be a starting point so I am looking forward to putting these to use.

RE: Cigarette Smoke

We traded our first trailer in April 2014, they sold it shortly thereafter. This past April we were back at the dealer picking up our trailer after some minor warranty work and stat inspection and my wife and I were walking their lot. I happened to look and see our old trailer sitting there, we went over and went inside and I almost gagged. It still looked pristine inside like the day we traded it in but the smell of smoke was overbearing. We ran into the salesman and we talking and he fully admitted they had no idea how they were going to get rid of the smell out of the trailer. It was less than a year and it was that bad.
