RE: Military MWR Campgrounds

Retired 1984 and have had a MH or TT most of the time since and have stayed at lots of MWR campgrounds in all parts of the US. Most of them are as good or better than most commercial operations in my opinion and have the benefit of base facilities. There are also many military rec areas that are in prime locations and are really reasonably priced.We use this site http://www.militarycampgrounds.us/ and the book you can get at the BX on military campgrounds. Really feel safe when camping on base. There are a few that have almost permanent residents and don't want short timers around but these are the exceptions.

RE: Oregon trail Wyoming

We did as much of the Oregon Trail as we could get to about 20 years ago starting in Omaha and ending up at Astoria. My wife was a grade school teacher and wanted material. In those days most of the markers and interesting graves were on private property or way off the major roads. We had a TT at the time and it was difficult to get to some stuff. We have been through there several times since and were amazed at how much on private land is now open to visitors and new information added. There is a book "The Oregon Trail" by Rinker Buck published in 2015 you might want to read if you decide to make the trip. You may want to start in NE and visit the Exhibit that is built over the freeway dedicated to the Oregon Trail. Worth the effort.

RE: Travel plans, need your ideas?

Lived in Rapid city for a few years and have been back quite a few times. Every time we find something new to do. We generally take two days from Dayton driving and stop at Wall and/or Black Hills. We stop at the Corn Palace in Mitchell they redecorate every year. The Black Hills is a drive thru if you don't want to hike and explore. There is a campground. Wall is a tourist trap but a good one. Plenty of big rig parking can walk to Wall Drug and downtown, also a decent campground near downtown. So much in the Park to do and see, don't go in early August during the Bike Rally unless that's what you are there for. The Bravo Missile exhibit is worth a stop if your into the cold war stuff. Of course Rushmore, cave tour, Crazy Horse, buffalo heard, Custer Battle field and lots of touristy stuff. Deadwood is still worth a visit but kind of a lost a lot since the Casinos moved in unless you like gambling. You will keep busy.

RE: Washington/Oregon in July

In the Columbia Gorge we like Ainsworth St Park near Troutdale and Mamaloose Island St Park near the Dalles. Both have full hookups and are close to things you will want to see. Hood River is a nice little town with the wind surfers and on the Way to Mt Hood. Lots of things to see and do, Beakon Rock and Maryhill Museum on the Wa side are worthwhile stops.

RE: Tell me about the 101 along the coast of Oregon

You are doing the right direction North to South, Ft Stevens is a good place to camp since it is close to the Lewis and Clark exhibits and the light house. The OR St Parks are great and there are a lot of them. Reservations are really needed if you need hookups and on weekends during the high season or like sites near the water. Most do have at least some non reserve sites and we have found getting in early afternoon generally works weekdays. Tillamook Cheese stop is cool and the Old blimp hanger if still open is worth a visit and the Spruce Goose Air Museum is not far off 101. Harris Beach St Park is good near the Ca Border and is only a couple hours drive to the Red Woods. Also a fun boat ride down the river. You won't have any problem finding things to do.

RE: OREGON AND WHASHINGTON

The Oregon is parks system is one of the best in the country. We especially like the ones in the Columbia Gorge along the river, our Favorites are, Ainsworth near Troutdale and Memaloose Island near the Dalles. Both have full hookups but need reservations to ensure you get one. All the info is on their web site. We stay at Mt Hood Villages campground near Bright Wood it's an hour plus drive to the Lodge and little on the expensive side but has full service and the drive down to Hood River is scenic with views of Mt Adams on the Way. Even though I was from WA and worked for the Forest Service at Mt Adams most of the campgrounds we used were Forest service and no hookups.

RE: skidaway island state park

We stayed there a few years ago, a nice park but pretty far out. There were some big places but we had a small TT. Think we had a full hookup.

RE: U.S. Route 50 America's loneliest route

We have been over this route several time and think Great basin NP is a real gem. Few people, great road art on the way up and plenty of hiking, great cave tour and good camp sites. Climb to the upper campgrounds is very steep. Most of the highway is easy driving couple of curvy climbs and high gas prices when you can find a station. Also the shoe tree is worth the trip.

RE: Suggestions please..new to this!

You need to look for a 3/4 ton used truck you will need it for a truck camper set up that you can live in for an extended time. Lance makes some of the best truck campers but they are more common on the west coast. You may be able to find a truck and camper already set up for sale. You will be challenged to stay in your budget for sure for a decent combination. Good luck.

RE: Southeast Ohio

The Hocking hills area would seem to be perfect for your trip and the towns you mentioned - plenty to see and do especially if you like nature and hiking. Also lots of places to choose from. We use the state park but pretty sure they don't have full hook-ups and limited large sites.

RE: Gatlinburg Campgrounds??

We use Twin Creeks, it is located with near the main park entrance and to down town. Plus on the free trolley route that goes to town and the craft loop. Also close to markets and restaurants. Wooded and has all the extras. Has some large sites not just a parking lot.

RE: New 2003 Trail-Lite

There is an R-Vision Forum you might want to try -http://r-visioncamping.org/, to find manuals and info on where to get parts. Had too Trail-Lites. Vents covers are standard RV stuff. The tank gauges are a problem and need you need to clean tanks regularly to keep them working. Might try putting a couple bags 0f ice in the tanks and drive around then dump and hose out good. I generally just go to Sam's and get a big 12 volt battery. Good luck with your new trailer.

RE: Moles

Unless you want to use poison pellets a dog or cat that goes after them is about the only thing that seems to keep them away. Traps are only marginally effective.

RE: Yellowstone, Badlands, Mt Rushmore? From Cincinnati

We lived in Rapid city for a few years. There is a lot to see and do in that area. Biggest storm we ever had was in late April. You'll probably want to stop at the Corn Palace in Mitchell nothing like it and also Wall drug near the Blakhills also worth a stop they both have RV parking. Badlands, a lot of people drive through and don't spend to much time there. Rushmore has RV parking and can be seen in a day, Crazy Horse is also a must see and the Buffalo heard is interesting. Not a fan of Deadwood kind of ruined by the casinos just a big touristy place but worth a stop. There is no easy way to get to Yellowstone really a long steep climb. We like the Tetons better than Yellowstone, less people and just as impressive. Jackson Hole is a touristy place to visit. You won't have any problem finding things to see and do.

RE: Does anyone tow with a Chevy Colorado?

I towed a 19' Trail cruiser for two years with a Colorado crewcab, twice over the Rockies and back not fast up long grades but always got there. The second generation Colorados have a bigger V6 rated at 300 HP tow ratibng over 7K, and a 6 sp tranny, also a diesel is offered. Some don't want a diesel dually since they want another vehicle to use for work and around town. As stated just match the TT to the vehicle.

RE: Using 12V while hooked up to the tow vehicle

For what it's worth info may have nothing to do with your situation - there is normaly a ciruit breaker of fuse breaker on the battery main line feed and and if it goes all the feed from the TT battery is lost. Some can be reset others need to be replaced. Only about $10, available at any Auto Parts Store. Normally located on frame near the battery case. If this thing trips or blows and your not on shore power (not sure about what would work if connected to the truck) you will have no 12 V power in TT. Easy to change.

RE: Does anyone else tow with a avalanche

Towed a 24' TT many miles with an 05 AV. Scale weight ready to go was just over 4600 lbs with only a little water. Went over the Rockies several times without issues. The 4sp is not a great trany for towing and reves would get up on the long steep grades and would have to use the truck lanes but always made it. Would recommend installing trans temp guage. There is or was a Av Towing forum that might provide more info.
