RE: Route 3 in New York

We went across 3 pulling our trailer and didn't have any problems. Except... Our GPS tried to send us on a dirt road for a shortcut to cut out one of the curves in Rt. 3. Just don't turn off the pavement. ;)

RE: Mammoth Cave NP

We took the Historic Tour and really enjoyed it, very informative. Also tours are half price with your senior pass which only costs $10 and are avablie at the parkThanks! I did see the senior pass prices - and only one of us three can use it. I thought the Historic Tour looked interesting - will add 1 vote for that!

RE: Mammoth Cave NP

If you love caves. Why not take them all? They are campgrounds in the area to spend a few days. Or just take a couple and then come back another time to take the ones you haven't done yet.Thanks - we definitely are going to spend a few days there. Time isn't the problem - it's money. We will have 3 people and it adds up pretty quick! I guess I was hoping for some enlightenment on the different tours from folks who have done them...

Mammoth Cave NP

Looking at their website I see there are a bunch of different tours available for the caves. We are physically fit and love caves. We're leaning toward the Grand Avenue Tour, but we don't want to miss something especially exciting. All the tours sound really fun, but we want to limit it to one, maybe two. There's the Historic Tour, the River Styx Tour, Domes and Dripstones Tour, and so on... Anyone have any recommendations?

RE: Roadtrek Outdoor Shower

^^ Thanks for that - can't wait to uncover our B and look into the possibilities. :)

RE: Front hitch

We have a front hitch and use it every time we put our trailer away in our barn. Couldn't live without it. We do have a spotter and talk on cell phones or walkie-talkies to get it backed in correctly.

RE: Roadtrek Outdoor Shower

^^ Thanks for the idea of the kitchen sprayer - for both - very nice. :) I just remembered I have an extra shower faucet thing that I can take with me to Lowes or Home Depot to get the correct fittings.

RE: Could We See Big Block Gas V-8 & V-10 In New Trucks Again

I certainly hope so! Be a great option instead of the problematic diesels! I agree, also the extra $8000 for a diesel and high maintenance cost I would rather have Fords V-10 in a truck. I love when I see quotes like this, it makes me wonder if they ever owned one. I have 200K miles between my current and former truck and never had a major repair. Diesels also hold there resale much better also, you will get the majority of that cost back when you sell or trade. It's kind of like me saying "never buying a gas, they have half the power, half the life, and half the fuel economy. Dan How dare you bring truth and logic into the ridiculous thread HAHAHA!!! Only people that lie more about their fuel mileage than a diesel guy is a V-10 guy trying to sell how great they are!! ChrisWell, I can't see ever needing a V-10, pretty happy with our V-8s... But, after reading threads on here for a few years I would never want to own a diesel. :p

RE: Hold Mail

Thanks for the tips! We'll talk to our postmaster first, then if they won't hold it for so long, get a PO box to have it forwarded to. I *was* wondering if we could set up a hold and then set up another one when that was soon to run out. We really don't need to get it forwarded to where we will be...

Roadtrek Outdoor Shower

We have an outdoor shower (for the first time). When cleaning up the rig for winter storage we found that there was heavy road grime on the whole apparatus. This is a 2004 Roadtrek 170. First we want to know if anyone has done a mod to close in the area so road dirt wouldn't get in there. Difficult because that's where the water and electrical connections are. Second - if not is there a fitting to put on the water outlet to at least keep the opening and the threads clean? Thanks for your input...

Hold Mail

We have always been able to hold our mail for our 2 week trips... Now with our retirement we will take longer trips - this spring we will be gone for about 50 days. You can only hold mail at the Post Office for 30 days. We don't need to actually get it till we get home - nothing important that we can't do electronically. Is there a way to do this? (I did a search and didn't find much on "hold mail")

RE: Looking for RV park west of Wash DC near train to city

Consider Lake Fairfax Park, near Reston, VA. They have camping, but you do have to drive a little to get to the closest Metro Train. We stayed here several years ago. We were quite pleased. It's a very nice county run park, so there is a lot more there than just a campground. Click here. select the "camping" link.The Metro now goes to Reston so it is actually very close to Lake Fairfax Park. 2.4 miles to walk - 3.3 miles to drive Good luck and have fun!

RE: Anyone keep their B plugged in for winter storage?

Yes, we do. We did replace our converter though to keep it from boiling out the water. It'll be plugged in and stored for 5 or 6 months. :(

RE: Unusual events

You might search for antique tractor shows. We ave one in western PA that is really fun - they have tons of old steam and early gas engine tractors that run saws and other equipment. They also have parades, and weight pulling contests. Here's a link: Pioneer Steam and Gas Engine Society

RE: Buying land to park your RV

just mt opinion, I don,t like the idea of staying in one spot all the time, IF I was in your area with all that open space I,d find a new camp every week. I've often though of purchasing acreage in Central Indiana. There are some places this could be done. But just like midnightsadie replied, with so MANY other camping areas, State, Federal, County, and private all around, why lock myself into the same spot ... plus the cost of annual property tax, upkeep and the constant vigilance to keep people off the property when we are not there. It's too costly, so much responsibility, and would take too much time to take care of. For the cost and time and upkeep of a bit of acreage, a lot of camping elsewhere can be done with none of the responsibility. Unfortunately, the days of living like a hermit are pretty much gone.We thought of buying land for taking our trailer to that would be near the sites we like to visit often - looked into the possibilities and decided to buy a B instead - and keep the trailer for longer trips. Pretty expensive, but don't have to mow or maintain another property!

RE: Tornadoes in the Southeast

Wow - thanks all for the reassuring replies! We happen to live in an area that doesn't much get natural disasters - except for our plentiful snow. ;) We've been waiting for retirement (yee-hah!) and want to get on the road as soon as possible. That's why we want to head south to get an early spring. As much as it would be great to have flexible travel plans as suggested - there are an awful lot of campgrounds that are already getting reserved up so we have to jump in now. So far we've got reservations for Nashville (Seven Points) and Gulf Shores. We do have short travel days planned, so we can adjust what time of the day to travel, and of course if there are tornado-y storms around we'll have to really adjust and lose some reservation money. I have read a lot on here about what to do when tornadoes are around and we will certainly do the utmost to save ourselves, but we would be heartsick to lose our rig. Thanks for the tips on weather radios and apps for the phone. Also for tips on what not to miss - we are *so* looking forward to this trip!

Tornadoes in the Southeast

We've been planning a leisurely trip down the Natchez Trace, to New Orleans, and back up through Alabama towards I-81. Got it all worked out for this spring - end of March into April. It just came to mind that that is tornado season. :E Looking at some sites that talk about average tornadoes by month Mississippi and Alabama look pretty bad for those months. What do you think? Would it stop you?

RE: Opinions on Twin Beds vs Fold Down Couch

We love the twin beds in our trailer... But they are much more comfortable than the twin beds we looked at in a Roadtrek 190. Those were more like the width of cots... Remember them? -- wood cross braces and canvas to lie on... Anyway - lie down and check out the beds before you buy. We do keep the rear double bed in our Roadtrek 170 made up all the time and use the front seats for sitting in. As a side note... We have Travasaks in our trailer and an RV Superbag in our B because we like to wash our sheets. :)
