RE: Decision lock

back in the day, while stationed in Key West, I took a Ford Econoline and converted it into a camper, I drove it thru 2 re-assignments and the kids loved it as we did, (this was before the modern version)I drove it everywhere. It finally died while we were stationed in Galveston Texas and I used it for storage. As for your question, only you and your son can make that decision. With the van if you have the time, knowledge and money to spend you can build it to "make it your own" from the start. If you are in a hurry then maybe another option might be best. Good Luck and happy camping

RE: Lost Title

I'm not giving up yet. I've been to two tag offices a couple more I can try. I checked the vin off the tongue of the trailer but can't get it to come up. Original title could be from another state too, if so it might not come up for you

RE: Mr. Heater Big Buddy Indoor/Outdoor Propane Heater

We use a ceramic (electric) heater in our TT and I usually have to turn the thermostat down as it gets to darn hot.

RE: Lost Title

The owner has to apply, (in Fl. ) I do not know about other states, I know I bought one with a lost title from the second owner and was told no problem just take a bill of sale with me, I ended up scrapping the unit as I could not get a title.

RE: Small space heater

I use a small ceramic heater I bought from Wally World, it puts out either 750 or 1500 BTU's I usually have to turn it down in out Coleman because it gets to darn hot, the one that oscillates works best. I have been using them for years and they always work great.

RE: A Phone scam I had not heard about before....

I do not answer the phone unless it is someone who's name I recognize and number that I recognize. The unknown name, name withheld etc. goes unanswered. I have about gotten the darn salesmen slowed down too, I answer the phone so and so county Sheriff's office LT. Johnson Fraud division, may I be of assistance, usually they hang up and do not bother to call my number again

RE: Snowing in Alabama

After being stationed in Newport RI and a winter school at Great Lakes Ill.. I said if I ever see another snowflake it will be to soon and I have never missed. Luckily it will be to the north of us so we will not have to look at it. The closest thing I want to see is the cotton fields in bloom (looks similar but not as messy or cold)

RE: Stabilizers lube

I use a spray designed for garage doors, has worked for me for several years, it is a dry lube and hold up well here in the Fl. climate.

RE: Kayaking looks fun

Big thing about a yak is the paddle, the lighter the better, costs more but if you swing a 2+ lb. double paddle all day, then try a really light weight one your body will know the difference. Rent one first as all yaks are not alike. I have had several over the years but at about age 70 due to knee problems, I went back to a canoe actually 2 1 solo 12' and an aluminum 18', easier to get in and out of for me anyway. I can stand up in a canoe and step out. good Luck and Happy Camping

RE: Dog friendly RV parks; Gulf Coast Area

Here is the skinny from Fla. State Parks web site. It states that dogs are welcome but not allowed not in cabins or on the beach We took our three Chihuahuas and they were welcome, and We live more than 100 miles from Top Sail. https://www.floridastateparks.org/park-activities/Topsail-Hill#Pets

RE: Amother Oldie Not Mine

I had one years ago they were good PUPs. The side walls folded down but were thin.

RE: How did you decide on which TT to buy ?

We looked on line, went to various dealers and looked at different units, We found the one that we felt was right for us and purchased it.

RE: Maiden voyage success - question about grey water tanks

The main thing is those long showers, We take a Navy shower, wet down, soap up, rinse off. Dishes we use paper plates, use one sink full for washing and spray the silverware and other items off. Best bet for showers is to use the bathhouse showers if you are camping where they are available. Another thing you will learn, those lights for the tanks are only an approximate indication of the liquid in the tanks. It will take ya'll a few trips to get used to conserving the water thereby limiting the amount in the gray tank.

RE: What's the WORST Experience You ever had at a RV/Camp site?

I visited a Fl State park where the volunteers ran the CG. If you were not in their cliche you were basically not welcome and they let you know and feel it. , One even cursed our little dog who was on a 6' leash quote" I do not like d** dogs and they should not be all We did not see the ranger the whole time we were there even tho we asked to see him. Needless to say we will not return

RE: Dog friendly RV parks; Gulf Coast Area

All Florida State Park campgrounds are dog friendly. Top Sail is a good one for the area you are looking at. It was a RV Park prior to Fl. buying it, it has all the hook ups including cable TV. Good Sam camping book might also help you out with your research Good Luck and Happy Camping

RE: Quiet clock

I bought a digital clock that sits on a shelf. I bought 3 of the analog clocks and ended up throwing them away.
