RE: Colorado Rockies

Timber Creek is right inside the Park entrance and visitor center, no hookups,good location. Close tothe old historic dude ranch. If you need hook ups there is a campground across from the visitor center on county rd 491 that looked good and has Horse rentals and stuff kids would like. Don't remember the name of it.

RE: Colorado Rockies

Just got back from Grand Lake/Granby area. Caught some nice trout, hiked up over 12K feet. Several decent campgounds in that area, close to RMNP, and lots of things to see and do.

RE: is it risky buying a travel trailer that is 8 years old

Just sold a 2008 TT to the first looker who never had an RV before. He brought two friends who had TTs and they went over everything very carefully - He paid what I was asking without even trying to get a better price. Condition not age, is everything in buying a used RV. I bought several and never regreted any of the deals.

RE: How to use a coffee boiler

Many years ago on a trail crews for the USFS they issued these pots. Nobody wanted to wait for the grounds to settle so we found that pouring a little cold water in settled the grounds to the bottom so we could get coffee without waiting.

RE: Need help buying a tow vehicle f

Our first TT was a 19' 2750 pounds dry but when I took it to the scale it was 3200 Lbs with nothing in it. When we loaded it to go on our firts trip with just a little water on it was near 3500 pounds. We towed it with a Sonoma crew cab V6 rated for 5500 pounds for two seasons. Gas mileage was about 9 mpg and we struggled on the long steep grades. Got a half ton and gas mileage went up to 12-13 mph and towing was much easier. Also need to think about weight distribution, stability control trans cooler and brake control. I would not tow without these even with a small TT.

RE: Route to Smokies

We like Twin Creeks has trolley acess and is close to resturants, shopping and the park entrance. Going through Pigeon Forge can be a pain but if you get off the main drag it is faster.

RE: Rapid City / Ellsworth AFB area RV Parks?

We use the base fan camp if we can get in but if can't get a site we use the KOA which is OK but resembles a parking lot. Only about 15-20 minutes to the base.

RE: Toyota Tacoma towing Travel Trailer/Casita

Towed fpr two seasons with a 2001 Sonoma V6 crew cab towing a Trail Lite 19' TT over the rockies and back twice. Scale weight was just iver 3K with a little water. Added a trans cooler and Lt tires, had to use the truck lane on the long grades but never failed to make it. I think you will be OK if you stay under 4K loaded.

RE: Planning Mt. Hood Trip Need Input

Mt Hood Village is good, full hook ups but on the expensive side. There is a Forest service campgound closer to MT Hood Lodge but no hook ups, stayed at years ago and can't remember the name.

RE: What's The Steepest Grade You Have Towed...

The road to the upper Lehman Campgrounds in Great Basin Nat Park is pretty steep. Also there is a road to a Veteran's memorial in the Adirondacks I tried with my first old MH that I had to give up on.

RE: 75 north thru Cincinnati or 275 around?

We always go straight thru, even in rush traffic, only time had a problem is accident or sometimes on Fri afternoon going south. There is some construction, not bad 2/3 lane at 45 mph. Going around adds cosiderable time.

RE: Portland, OR help

Not familiar with that part of Portland but you might find something in the Portland site - http://www.freeguidetonwcamping.com/oregon_washington_main/Oregon/Portland_Area/Portland_Area.htm We have found that many churches will let you part in their lots over night if you ask first.

RE: Palo Duro canyon area campground

Have stayed at the state Park twice and found it very good. Had full hook ups as I remember. There are 3 campgrounds to choose from. Turkeys and deer come around in the evenings. Kind of steep curving road to get in to the campgrounds.

RE: Military Campgrounds (Lackland, Tinker, Corpus Christy)

Have stayed at all three, all are decent, Holloman is pretty new and has added sites, Close to White Sands and a nice new Space Museum. Been along time since Beale and don't remember much about it. We prefer fam camps and have stayed at many over the las 25 years.

RE: Tranny temps: how hot is too hot?

Have your same TV but TT is under 5K scale weight with all gear and some water. Have been over the Rockies and back twice and the trans temp has been up to 230s on long steep grades when temp is high but never have seen it at 250 or over. Normal driving it runs about 180-190. Unless your TT is prettty heavy you should noy have a problem.

Awning Stuck Closed

The manual awning release lever will not move. Have tried turning the tube etc. but it just won't budge. Any ideas would be welcome. What kind of cost would be to have the 8' x 15'awning replaced. Should it be the whole works or just the tube?

RE: Columbus, Ohio ?

We don't go around, adds about 20 minutes and the only real heavy traffic is Friday afternoon. Went through yesterday north bound about 4 PM with no problem. Went south on Monday. Do this both ways at least once a moth. There is some construction and 45 speed but not long. The big delay is north bound on 75 they are paving and down to one lane around mile marker 60, between Mt vernon and Berea I think. Huge delay, backed up for miles.
