Is taking 17 a better route to take? We took 95 last year over to 40, then down, but was thinking of taking 17 all the way down this year. Not familiar with 17 though. Anyone with experience traveling 17 that can tell me how this route is? Any construction or two lane roads, or is 17 primarily a 4 lane highway all the way down? TIA
We stayed at Briarcliffe RV Resort last year and had a good time. We used Coast to Coast, so it was only $10 per night, but not sure what the regular rate is offhand, but here is the link to the website if you wanted to review.
Anyway, I found a beautiful Excursion with only 54,000 miles on it and we're going to pick it up this Saturday. We're trading in our 03 EB Expedition which I will miss very much. The Excursion is a 6.8L V10, and with that power, I will fill much more comfortable towing my family of 5, two dogs and all our gear 10 hrs a way to our camping destination.
Congrats on the upgrade! Sounds like you found a sweet ride.
Bought our second V10 last summer, and wouldn't have another TV. Tow a 34' TT that weighs 8k+ loaded, and carry a golf cart in the bed too. The 7-9 mpg doesn't bother me since the truck is only used for towing, but the power is there.
If you have a Carmax near you, there is 2008 F250 V10 with 41k miles that will be available soon. I just sold them the truck in my sigbature last weekend here in Virginia. Don't know what the transfer fee is to your location, or what Carmax will list it at, but it was a great truck, and I owned it for 18 months and never had an issue with it whatsoever. It has the 4.10 axle, 2213 lbs of playload, towed my 34' Windjammer beautifully, and had the 6.75' bed. Why did I sell it? They gave me an offer I couldn't refuse (which was $5k more than my local Ford dealer offered me), and I bought an 08 F350 V10 King Ranch long bed because I wanted to be able to haul our golf cart when we went camping. Cart wouldn't fit in F250 bed, and I needed more payload to carry the cart and the tongue weight of my TT. I also know where there is another 08 F350 with 50k miles, long bed, and 4.10 axle at a Ford dealer in Pennsylvania for $26k. PM me if you are interested. I love the V10, and they are getting harder and harder to find with low miles.
I am from MD as well. When we head to SC we stop in Roanoke Rapids,NC and stay at Carolina Crossroads
$25.00 for a pull through overnight site can't be beat.
Easy on easy off. Pool available.
I have no problem doing the Cracker Barrel overnight. I just stayed at a CB memorial day weekend. But for $25.00 Carolina Crossroads can't be beat.
X2. Staying here overnight right now lol. On our way to Myrtle Beach in the morning.
