RE: Bar Harbor Maine

Stayed at Hadley's Point when we went a few years ago and were more than satisfied. The location was perfect for getting around, Bar Harbor Campground is a little closer to Bar Harbor but not by much.

RE: Motel near Charlotte NC

Charlotte/Fort Mill KOA was our stopover on the way to Georgia, nice place and plenty of room and just off the interstate so it was easy on to head South

RE: Savannah, GA

We stayed on Tybee Island in June, yes it was 90+ and humid but it surprisingly was not real buggy. We did the 45 minute trolley tour to get and overview and then we could pick out what we wanted to see. River street and Forsythe Park are musts and even visit St. John the Baptist Cathedral to see the beauty of it. The Pirate House for the lunch buffet is a must and if you like seafood a trip to Tybee for the Crab Shack is a must.

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.
