RE: Gaudy colored and striped RV's

I like the monocolor trailers that airstream produces. That proves a single color will work.

RE: This style camper hatch may put you in trouble for rot:

When we were looking at used fifth wheels, we noted wet and rotting wood in several places. So when we found one that was in good shape, we made some modifications. First, an aftermarket trim piece across the top of all the hatches to divert the water. These pieces come in various lengths, and we painted it white. http://yukonsights.ca/images/RV/20090515_FiverFridge_007.jpg width=605 . Where did you get that? Make/model/mfg/distributor please!?

RE: license plate

Prior to reading this thread, the thought never occurred to me to remove the truck rear plate and mount it to the camper. Washington State requires front and rear vehicle plates. The truck camper is titled/registered/plated too. In Georgia you have only one plate to put on the back of your vehicle. In Georgia there is no titling or registration of truck campers. Once the camper is on my truck, the only way you can see the plate is to: A. Craw underneith the camper B. Move the plate. I have a funny feeling if I drove through Washington State, LEO's would take exception if I did not move the plate. Beyond not having to move the license plate, I am curious as to what other advantages there are to having you truck camper registered? I am still interested in hearing from anyone who had a problem with LEO because they DID move their license plate.

RE: Furcamper going blind. Your $0.02 to help next trip?

We just got back from camp driveway. Everything went reasonably well, the biggest problem was with DW jumping up every 5 minutes thinking that Claire had gotten up. She (Claire not DW) did have to get up in the middle of the night to take care of "doggy business" and appeared to be a bit confused, but we expected that. This morning she woke up perky and ready for breakfast. BB_TX - thanks for the info. I am going to chase that down immediately. We had a friend (human) that gotten Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever a few years ago here in Georgia from a tick bite. It is possible she could have gotten it in the same maner. She does have her big buddy Rocky for support (picture from Jekyll Island last year) http://www.beaglenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/IMAG0182-1024x577.jpg width=640 We have had several daytime outings since the problems started and she does well and enjoys being out, but she does tire rather quickly. Will update here as things progress. thanks to everyone for their feed back

Furcamper going blind. Your $0.02 to help next trip?

http://www.beaglenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/6-199x300.jpg Unfortunately, Claire is loosing her sight. She makes it around the S&B just fine - most the time. Ocasionally will miss a doorway and walk into the wall. She has some sight, but if a room is semi-darkened, she cant see a thing. She has been diagnosed with epelipsy and acording to the doctor, this is the reason for the loss if sight. Fortunately the drugs have stopped the grand mal seizures. She still likes taking walks and riding in the car. I have blocked off the couch to keep her from jumping up on it (so she wont misjudge the distance going up or down and get hurt). I am going to spend a bit of time to make sure she learns the couch is unavailable to her any more. We already use a ramp to get in and out (as the entance door has always been an unsafe distance from the ground for the dogs) so she is familiar with going up and down it. We have not been camping since the onset of her problems. We are going to try to go on a trip to Camp Driveway this evening and see what happens. Any suggestions or items we should be thinking about before our next big trip?

RE: Jake pooped in the pet store tonight! :(

I pooped in our local feed/grain store...... Staff let me use their restroom so it was OK :B I got thrown out of Home Depot for doing that..... ...maybe it was because they had not hooked up the water to all the toilets they had along that wall.

RE: license plate

The one time I forgot to move the plate, was the one time I got stopped. (actually, I had unloaded the camper and forgot to move it from the camper to the truck) Got off w/ a warning. I now have "move license plate" top of my loading check list and it is also the last item on my unloading checklist. I am curious. Has anyone gotten stopped becasue they DID MOVE the plate from the back of the truck to the back of the camper (while the camper was on the truck, that is)?

RE: So what did you do to your Truck Camper today?

Cleaned things up and made some minor modifications. One of the furcampers has nearly gone blind. Desgined a simple barricade to keep her off the couch. We are afraid she will misjudge the jump up or down and get hurt. Will spend the night tonight at Camp Driveway to see what other changes we need to make to keep it safe and fun when we go out camping.

RE: Green NON-toxic RV Mattress

I have a TRUE geen, non-toxic mattress. I first got some non-GMO cotton, that I spun into threads, then I wove them into a mattress cover. Then I went into a field and gathered mess of hay - I made sure there were no pesticides or toxins sprayed on the field - and stuffed it in my cover. Now if I could figure out why I have all these bug bites.

RE: Jalopnik.com editorial on RV Licencing

The blogger really isn't interested in safety. Count the number of times he references $850K price tag then count the number of safety or crash studies in his post. How dare you own something I can't afford!

RE: Fresh Water Hose

I have one of these https://images3.campingworld.com/CampingWorld/images/products/15000/125x125/1547.jpg Shop around for best price. I usually get 3+ years out of it. You can buy the hose without the reel and save a few bucks. The convienice far exceeds the annoyance of replacing it once every three years. Important: to extend the life of it - do NOT drag it across the ground. When reeling it up, dont drag it - just walk around with the reel and pick it up. If you need to move it - pick it up. It will last a lot longer. And make sure you put the pressure regulator between the faucet and the hose - not between the hose and the camper. There are a lot of people who say they are terrible. That has not been my experience. YMMV Please note - the above is not the same thing as these: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51u7yNu367L._AA160_.jpg Many of these are not rated for drinking water.
