RE: Fam of 8 looking for TT

FWIW, my 3 kids all migrated out of the trailer into tents and hammocks by the time they were 12-13

RE: NC Mountains campgrounds

Kohldad, thanks for the feedback on the Davidson river CG, I have been thinking of staying there on one of our trips to the mountains. Davidson River has changed how many sites are reservable. Last year it was about half with the remainder being walk-up - this year it is about 90%. Showed up last Monday at 10:30 AM (not knowing they had changed), and at 12:30 they gave me a choice of 3 sites for one night. I took one, and went to the gate at 6:15 AM and got first in line. Two others that had spent a one-nighter got in line behind me, and one person from outside showed up. None of us knew about the change before we got there. Camper that was 3rd in line got his site first, because he only wanted one more night. People in the walk-ups had until 10 to renew, and there were 5 that day. The first two did renew, but me and the other two waiting did get sites. The walk-up loop is the last one, and the one that is the least secluded. On the plus side, that loop being the farthest one from town has absolutely no cell service, while the others fade in and out. If you're going when school is NOT out, you can probably find a site online pretty easily. Their window is 6 months out. Next year I'll be on that site in January and February getting my summer fix.

RE: Maybe I'm missing something on the water heater...

Probably a hidden switch for electric - but how long is your hose to the city water and is it in the sun?

RE: Backing Up

I remove the bars before I back into my yard, but not at a camp site. At home I will get 90 degrees at some point, never that much in any CG.

RE: What will happen?

They will have a blast. While they probably won't go this far with a conversion, they might be okay with re-sale here's one for sale for 18K Personally, I would love to have a converted school bus (saw one in Pisgah) that could tow my camper.

RE: too join or not too join

Purchased my trailer from CW in 2009, and got the same offer. Someone finally called me and asked when I was going to take them up on their offer. I explained that we don't do resorts, only campgrounds. They tried to tell me they had lots of things for the kids - I said every state and federal CG that we've been to has some kind of water (river, lake, ocean), and that was all the kids needed. They finally got the hint.

RE: Frustrated by short beds and uniformed salesmen

Ours came with a short queen that was junk. We replaced it with another short queen, cause a regular one would be too long for the tight bedroom. However, we also have a full size body pillow. At night, we pull the mattress out and put the body pillow behind, then put our regular pillows on top of that. Works just fine. In the morning we pull the body pillow out, push the mattress back, and the body pillow looks okay on top of the mattress during the day.

RE: i40 Campgrounds NC to CA family of 5 and Penny the Pig

Riding in the trunk -- that will be awfully HOT and you may not have a pig when you get to your destination. August -- HOT, HOT, HOT It's an Excursion, not sure what he meant by trunk.

RE: Looking to upgrade to a TT after hybrid for 14 years!

Best outdoor speakers have a cord and fit in your ears. Can't understand why people feel the need to entertain everyone in the campground. I like the "radio free" sites. We have a bluetooth speaker - I'll hook it to my phone and make sure it's aimed where others can't hear (I do a perimeter walk just to be sure).

RE: Looking to upgrade to a TT after hybrid for 14 years!

One thing to consider - in a hybrid, you have windows on all four sides. That is hard to find in a TT, so if you are used to having a nice breeze, you may have to invest in some 12 volt fans (and it's still not the same).

RE: Big Fees to buy at Camping World?

When a bought my last two TVs and my TT I use the same approach, I told the dealers that I am talking the dollar number that I am writing on the check and I only bring one check. I make it a point to be sure that they understand, any fees, taxes and such are included in the price I am quoted. Anything else comes out of their pocket. Exactly what I've done - "I'll write a check for $15,000 even."

RE: Park It 360 TT Dolly

I got this 7 years ago from a company called Power Mover (they're out of business now) for about $1200 shipped. Works great, but I don't have any grade: http://www.storenelson.com/img6.jpg And it's the only way I can get both the boat and camper in the backyard: http://www.storenelson.com/mover.jpg

RE: Problem with new trailer, or is it the grandson?

"Hey kids, check out the new camper - gonna take you guys camping!" 8 y/o looking around camper, sees ladder - remember Grandpa said "check out the new camper". Kid climbs ladder, gets spanked. Kid should've been told that the ladder is off limits - if he goes up again, then punishment is warranted.

RE: Questions on tow vehicle, considering 8.1 Burb

It drinks a lot (oil and gas) but can pull like crazy.

RE: Tekonsha P3

It goes to sleep after 15 minutes when pedal was last pressed, whether vehicle is running or not, whether trailer is connected or not.
