RE: Backing R.V.

I have one http://storenelson.com/img6.jpg With this, I don't need a spotter - which results in less fights with the DW (though she has gotten better as a spotter). Without it, I would never have gotten both the trailer and the boat into the back yard. http://storenelson.com/mover.jpg

RE: Light Strip deal of the day

For the same price you can get a solar string. I attach them to the awning and put the little panel in the corner of the awning. They come on when it's dark and last after everyone is asleep. Just enough light to see, not bright enough to be intrusive.

RE: leave roof vents open during winter?

I closed mine last week as where it was parked, Hurricane Matthew was blowing the rain straight at the back of my Maxxis Cover. Other then that, it's open 365 days a year.

RE: hurricane Matthew

I took the trailer to my in-laws - turns out we got hit pretty hard there, but not quite as bad as our house. We lost power while I was cooking breakfast, so I ran to the camper and got my little stoves and propane and kept cooking in the carport.

RE: Solar Clothes Dryer (pix)

I just tie a line between a couple of trees, though my grandma had a fancy set up at her house. A couple of T post about 30 feet apart with three lines between them. Fla. state parks as well as a lot of private CG's do not allow items tied to trees..I am not sure about the Corps CG's and some parks have no trees One stay in Florida and I bought one of these.

RE: Question About "Walk-up" Camp Sites

Call the CG the night before and ask if any sites you described might be opening up tomorrow. Tenant of a walk up site usually has until 10 or so to extend their stay.

RE: Is it normal for a new TT to have been used?

Anyway, after looking some more online I've found the same model elsewhere for less so I won't be getting that one. I guess I'll just always have that thought in the back of my mind that it might not be really "new". Maybe this one is less because this dealer also lets his friends use it, just doesn't tell you?

RE: RV Park Reviews and Trip Advisor

You have to read between the lines - and read how they review other parks. There was one who would give a park a 1 or a 10 - if they had wi-fi, they got a 10. If they didn't have wi-fi, they got a 1. They gave a 1 to a state park because it didn't have wi-fi. If someone advertised wi-fi that didn't work well, I could see giving them a low mark.

RE: Pacific Coachworks - Warning to those looking...

So many complaints about CW selling RVs....and the poor after-sell service. My OPINION...buy from a local RV DEALER. Better off. I did on my first trailer - and they were awesome. If you had any issues, you could go straight to the owner. Unfortunately, after 30 years in business, he decided to retire - and he sold it to CW. Service went down hill after that. Found another local dealer who is great - hopefully they stick around awhile.

RE: A Camping Tradition That Costs $0

In poor taste Dtiller. Even as a joke, it's seriously missing the target. It's only in poor taste if mother-in-law is still alive

RE: I have 15K to spend on a tow vehicle. I need help!

Thanks! Exactly the type of opinions I'm looking for. I have 2 young kids so I would like a crew cab. I don't mind the 5.4L. It does feel a little rung out with 7000lbs behind it but a 250 might be different. I can find the odd 250 with the 6.2 but the bodies are usually in terrible shape. I'll check out a 250 5.4L. Thanks! I had a 2010 F-250 with the 5.4 (it was only 8 months old when I got it - had been a rental). It was a very nice truck - but the 26 gallon tank caused lots of stops. And wasn't much fun climbing in the mountains. I just sold an 03 2500 Burb with the 8.1 that would have been below your price range. If you already have a work truck, why not get an SUV? I would like a 3/4 ton for the stability. Pulling a 29ft TT with a 30 mph crosswind in a half ton takes about 2 years off my life everything I do it! I have the same (GMC instead of Chevy, see sig), and it is very stable - and can accelerate up the mountains if needed. Your two kids might want to bring friends sometime.

RE: Bad experience Lancaster KOA

If this is the CG they sure have more positive comments than negative...and by a wide margin. Just saying.... I went to your recommend review site and 18 out of 32 reviews said that the new owners were RUDE. In your words, just saying, whatever. There are 63 reviews - 32 are excellent, 13 are good, 7 are average, 6 are poor, 5 are terrible.

RE: It finally fits!!!!

As you can see from Google street view, it is nice to live in an old neighborhood that has no HOA or covenants. OK....just HOW did you snap shot and get an url to post it from a google earth picture?? :B Big difference between earth and street view :R Print Screen key, paste into Gimp Editor, cropped, then uploaded to one of my sites. Google has taken 4 pics of my house - the dog is in every one of them (as well as the one pic that Bing maps took)

RE: Amazing what people tow with!

I went to an RV dealer yesterday to pick up my sons new travel trailer for him. I was in the PDI section where several new owners were getting the walk thru and their WD hitches installed. This guy was one TT away from me. What you see is the finished setup. I told the sales guy that I was working with that, that guy needs a truck. He told me that according to the WD installers it's just the soft rear springs on the Jeep causing the sag and some bags would cure the problem. The guy with the Jeep was taking off for California. The dealer I was at is in Portland. It was actually quite funny in a way. I was picking up a 21', 3000lb dry TT using a 12 Ram 4x4, CC LB diesel. The guy with the Jeep just kept looking over at my truck. Wonder what he was thinking. On the serious side it just amazes me what these dealers like this allow this guy to leave. http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y422/goducks13/Overweight_zpsglfi7tdc.jpg I hope that wasn't the finished setup - I'd hate to see him towing with the slide out :R
