RE: Cross Country (twice) Pickup Camper Purchase Experience

Yah - I enjoyed your story too - thanks for giving us the whole thing! Can empathize with your frustration at the long drive to find out the seller wasn't exactly truthful. We had a similar experience flying to Florida to pick up a classic car that was totally off what the guy said on the phone and in emails (and sometimes pictures can really fool you). Lost 1000 bucks on that trip! We also had a similar story when buying our trailer - we found what we wanted, then searched for one. The first 2 we saw didn't turn out to be acceptable, but at least they were not too terribly far away. Then the third was perfect and we drove 1000 miles to get it. Have fun with your new camper. :)

RE: Just bought a Camper

Looks nice, but can a Jeep really pull a trailer?

RE: RV or camping manners....

Well, I am amazed at the people here who don't think it's rude to dump next to others at the table. From some of these responses we can see that there are folks who just don't think about anyone but themselves. And if some folks here think it's OK, then we can't be surprised that the general population includes folks like this. ;) OP - I feel for you.

RE: 6mpg. 30 gal tank

I know it's a pain in the &** to stop every couple of hours for fuel but I have found it actually make s the overall driving experience much better. I find that after two hours of driving, I begin to get uncomfortable and start to shift my position in the seat. If I stop and stretch then I'm good for another couple of hours. It also helps to make me more alert. Fueling every two to three hours allows time to stretch so the drive is better overall. So in reality it helps to relieve the pain in the &**.....LOL - this is a really great way to look at it!

RE: Amazon Prime offers SOME offline viewing on some devices

Here is a link to the app on Amazon. Apparently you have to download the Amazon app store app ;) and then download the video app. Look at the reviews - folks sure seem to be upset about all the personal information and control they feel they are giving up. Would love to hear what folks here think about it...

RE: Small TTs with basements

We have a small TT and I used an area under a bed. Took off a cupboard door, walled off a small area, and hung a curtain for the cats to go in. There hasn't been any smell at all. Here are some pics: https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-YawfZnqGkGY/Td49X32zTUI/AAAAAAAAKng/EzK3BOElCvc/s800-Ic42/CatBox1.JPG width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-nd-0irf6LiI/Td49PT3IAOI/AAAAAAAAKnc/ggJlMTtwcps/s800-Ic42/CatBox2.JPG width=500 Good luck!

RE: from the frying pan....

Yeah... But... http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/615dzPLhRKL._SL1200_.jpg width=600 No grease under anything - not even the bacon or sausages. They cooked everything and then plopped it all in the pan. And we all know that different foods take different amounts of time to cook especially at the same heat.

RE: Waxing decals

Our trailer is 25 years old and we always have waxed over the decals - once or twice a year. They still look brand new - no fading or peeling. But - the trailer has always been stored inside - I would bet that's the difference. :)

RE: Your definition of quite time (sp)

Haven't ever seen a hard-and-fast stated definition. For us, it means no unnecessary noise that might annoy or disturb the campers in the nearby sites.This. And that definitely includes generators. ;)

RE: Drawers in a Travel Trailer

camper drawers are built to stay shut. In 30 years of towing campers. I have yet to have a drawer, OR cabinet door open.Apparently you haven't driven on the roads in PA too much. I have driven in PA, not a camper though, and I have towed campers down washboard dirt roads, and pot hole filled back roads, I have turned corners, and had the TT leaning to a somewhat scary angle. Still haven't had a drawer, or cabinet open. However all the campers we have had. Had drawers that you actually had to work at opening. they have little lips on the front, and you have to pick the drawer up, and over to open it. Are not all RV drawers made that way? If not. Y'all got ripped off. If you get these drawers shut, they will not open accidentally. So I 'm wondering. asking of no one in particular. Could it be operator error. Cause If we don't get ours shut all the way, If they don't drop into the catch. they open easily. We check them before we head out.No. Ours are that way and we don't have any problems. But - lots of RV drawers are not made that way. :)

RE: close call

When I have my tires swapped of our local tire shop, I always watch the "kid" tork the nuts. For that very reason.The garage I worked at way back in the 70s.... It was the old guy who didn't torque the lug nuts correctly and caused a problem for the customer. But the moral is watch if you can. Or check it yourself.

RE: Your Thoughts on Camping with a smaller Travel Trailer

Are there any couples here that camp comfortably and HAPPILY in a smaller TT, say 24'-26"?Ours is even smaller - 23' all together. We wouldn't have it any other way. We wanted the very smallest trailer we could find that had dedicated beds separate from the couch area. We don't even have a slide and we don't find it cramped at all. We spend a lot of time in our trailer as we like to be with our 2 cats when we're not out hiking or exploring. It's all about the floorplan. Is there a bottleneck where 2 people can't pass one another? Can one person be sleeping while the other is reading on the couch? Ask questions that matter to you... We don't feel a camping trailer needs to be as big as an apartment - and we like being together. :)

RE: Where are the women RVers?

Woman here ! I figure out all the stuff, Dh does the towing.Same here. Anything to do with the trailer is my responsibility, while DH maintains our vehicles. I took out and repaired the furnace, put in a new converter and electrical management system, added a heat strip to the A/C, replaced the range vent fan with a quieter one, and lots more. I worked my way through college working at a garage so I know my way around a tool box and I always enjoy the mechanical talk in the forums. I can't usually add to those discussions as everything we own was made in the last century. ;) RV net has been a wonderful resource for me and I'm always telling DH something I learned here. Also - I'm happy to see there are so many women here - men can't have all the fun!

RE: Who knew?

I have a #3 "Erie" scotch bowl (from the late 1800s), which didn't make sense at first, because a #8 lid would fit it. After googling around, I landed on that exact same site, which explained it.. It's about the size of the bottom (fitting in a wood stove), not the top. https://scontent-sea1-1.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xaf1/t31.0-8/331103_10150951299262134_714808090_o.jpg width=640I've got one just like that with a "3" but mine is Wagner - and I live in Erie. ;) Thanks OP for the info!

RE: Found a definite cure for mice...

I recently got a cat, haven't had pets here for many years. I visited my farmer buddy that had a litter and some teenager cats hanging around. I took one of the teenagers and this cat is an absolute predator. She will bring trophies back, almost daily. I came home from work today, her and the three kittens had dined on a bird (feathers were all that was left). Among her favorites, besides mice, are rabbit, chipmunk, and squirrel.Gasp. Outdoor cats are responsible for millions of songbird deaths in North America each year.

RE: Broken down on side of HWH 71 in Ohio

Just to have this clarified... Is your insurance paying the repair bill? I also want to add my congrats that you all are alive and safe!

RE: Odd comments

Neighbor came to see our new tt when we brought it home. She commented how homey it looked with the "real "looking" appliances. She was shocked when I told her they actually were "real"That is funny! We often get asked if the top pops up on our trailer or if we can stand up inside (DH is 6'2").
