RE: Travel trailer with Rheumatoid Arthritis

I have to agree with Gjac, that a small Class C may be the way to go. My Dad had RA, along with osteoarthritis. At about 75, he decided that the larger Class C they had was too difficult. Larger vehicle, tow dolly and manual transmission towed vehicle. sold that and bought a 21 ft TT (he had towed TT before they bought a series of Class C's). He didn't keep the TT but a couple of years, and went back to small Class C. He drove it himself until about 85, and then Mom convinced him to let her drive, but he still helped with hooking up towed car and getting ready to go. I traveled with them, doing most of the driving, when he was 88 on a 10 day trip from Ga to La and back. I must say it was extremely easy to stop for night, or stop for a rest or even just to move around a few minutes. No getting out of tow vehicle and hurrying to TT when you arrive in rain. You don't even have to get out and hook up power if you don't feel like it, as most MH's have generators with inside switches to start (if they don't start automatically). We even could pull in back parking lot of restaurant.. one of us go in, get menu and order.. and then take food back out to MH, if he didn't feel like going in.

RE: Storing your "stinky slinky"

I use fence post zip tied to bumper. ends have caps, with giant pin clips made from white metal clotheshanger.My rhino hose fittings didn't fit in bumper. I have a gutter that I put hose in. Instead of cutting off just to fit, I cut gutter roughly in half. I slide the two sections one inside the other and use to support my hose when connected. I hooked a small length of chain on end, so I can hang from sewer connection. Since they slide in each other, I can adjust the length to distance to dump connection. brace with a couple of blocks

RE: How to sell our Class C

I sold my parents through RV trader... took about 2 months (this was in the fall). I did lots of research on price and made sure it was priced to sell without giving it away. It was not a super deluxe model and there were several throughout the country that were the same model. lots of pictures and details on ad. I only got one or two "consignment offers". sold it to someone who came 400 miles to get it. they called and I talked to them about 30 minutes, then the came with combo of cash and certified/cashiers check. They bought it that day. Planned to pick up in two weeks, called after a week and said they wanted toad too. So when they picked up the MH, they carried the car off too.

RE: Potato Noodles?

Barilla makes a pasta that is called PLUS, has added protein, fiber and omega-3's. It's the only pasta my friend has found that doesn't spike his blood sugar. And he isn't really into 1/3 cup servings either. Barilla Plus comes in spaghetti, farfalle and penne shapes that I have found here. Probably more in larger stores with more variety. (Southern small groceries don't tend to have much outside of the norm).

RE: New trailer walk through

try everything out, and at very least make them demo everything, even if you think you know. I bought a new TT, and awning was a different brand. I went to use it 100 miles away from home and it didn't work like old one. I was lost.

RE: Taking the plunge to full timing & need advice

I can say I have NO issues with stuff bouncing in my rear kitchen... I have a lighter, shorter TT and actually have to go up a curb to park it at home and have not lost anything due to bouncing around. I do have to be sure cabinets and things are secured, but you should do that with any type trailer. I love the floor plan and would highly recommend a rear kitchen. It meets my needs.

RE: Medical permission

NO, the ER does not have to help, unless it is life threatening. I know of a 16 year old who went to ER for head injury (she was accidentally hit in head by a kid with a golf club), and they would not treat her because her parents were not available to sign for treatment. I would get some type notarized form. I had to sign a notarized form for my son when he traveled with HS Band.

RE: Roaming RVers Rally May15-17,2015 FLORENCE MARINA S P

jakesjaunts, I have a 10x10 canopy and have access to two additional 8x10 canopies that I can bring if you want. Excited about Luau theme. I have done several parties with that theme, so I will get out my recipes and serving pieces and start planning. Will let you know on meals in a couple of weeks.

RE: Child/baby seat confusion

If you mean rent one when you said "hire one out", then you might want to look at purchasing one. You can likely purchase one at stores like WalMart or Target for less than long term rental would be. Once you complete using it, you can always donate it to one of the child protection agencies... foster parents would be thrilled to be given a slightly used, but otherwise new, car seat.

RE: Athens, GA (Univ of Georgia)

A friend stays at Pine Lakes in Bishop when he goes for football games and recommended them. There is also an ownership park in Athens called Bulldog Park. They do rent spots outside of Football Season. I had checked on staying there over New Years a couple of years ago, but ended up going elsewhere. I just called the sales number on the website.

RE: replacing spring in RV awning

Can't tell you how to adjust your awning, but have different suggestion. IF you don't want to continue fighting, try the crank conversion. I had one put on my awning and it was worth it, as I don't fight the spring anymore. Not sure who I bought from, but it was someone from Central Florida at the Good Sam Rally in Atlanta.

RE: Roaming RVers July 17th - 19th Pointes West, Appling GA

Hi, I don't think we have met, but I have come to several of the camp-outs and hosted the last one (March). I am hoping to come, but won't know until at least mid-May. I have two questions. I am DoD Civilian, so am I an "authorized patron" or do I still need you to make my reservations? Second, is there somewhere in the area, that you would recommend that I could store my trailer for about a week, if I go further north for a little while to visit my daughter and granddaughter? Oh yeah, it's a 28ft TT.

RE: How many of you travel alone with a TT?

xteacher, I just ignore the wife bashing.... maybe that is why I have an X myself.. For those who wonder, I am an over 50 year old female who drives a truck, tows a TT and camps without any help. Granted when my 24 year old son does join me, I take advantage of him being there and ask for help, but I can and do manage just fine on my own.

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

One thing I did to my Jayco to make it look brighter is to add framed posters hung with command picture hangers. I landscapes/floral photos that had bright green, bright pinks and wines. My upholstery has a bit of wine color. I then added other accessories in the green and pink. I removed the ugly dry-clean only bedspread and replaced with one that was a wine color and then added throw pillows through out in the brighter colors. Much more appealing than the dark browns and taupes that were the main colors. My prints were actually photos that were taken when I was visiting different areas. I have a azalea garden woods scene, a sunset over the Mississippi River and a lake with the trees reflecting.

RE: Grey water disposal with no sewer connection

Effy, many places purposefully letting grey water drip on the ground will cause you to get asked to leave in no uncertain terms... and possibly fined a fair amount. I am able to dump grey water on our family farm, but we have 150 acres including many acres of trees that appreciate the water. This is a very rural county, and I run the water out into the middle of the planted trees. Don't let it drip where I am staying.

RE: How many of you travel alone with a TT?

I have traveled alone several times. I have also taken my mom with me, and although she is able to help some, I just prefer to do it myself. I try to find pull through sites if possible, just because they are so much easier, but I will back in if that is the best site. I use my backup camera... and the hitch aid balls for hooking up trailer. The other thing I really like is the Anderson levelers, It sure saves placing blocks a couple of times.. use it with large level mounted on front of trailer that I can see from rear view mirror.

RE: how long do propane rubber hoses last?

You should give them a good look. My previous TT I replaced top 2 when I changed to auto-change regulator. Current TT, I had to change lower hose at 3 years old, as a squirrel decided it was wonderful for gnawing on.

RE: SC Beach Park

Looking for somewhere we can walk to beach. So at Edisto, can you walk to beach? Any hints to find a spot? Seems Hunting Island is booked, there aren't 3 nights available the whole month of June. Is there some where I can get on waiting list/ get notifications of cancellations? If we can't go in June, we could possibly go in August, but would really prefer June.

SC Beach Park

Are there any RV Parks on the beach between Charleston and Savannah that I would have a chance of finding a site for a long weekend in June (preferred) or August? I would like to meet my DD and DGD for a long weekend at the beach during June or August. As my DGD will be 2 and they will also likely have their dog, I would like a place that we can walk (pull DGD in wagon) to the beach. I have a 28ft TT and need a site that is fairly easy to get into. Sometimes I struggle where there are lots of trees to dodge backing. We prefer state parks and have stayed at Hunting Island, but I don't think finding a site there is likely. At this point, I am more interested in something available at the beach... even if I have to go to a more commercial park. Yes, I know planning ahead is best, but we couldn't plan sooner. Suggestions are much appreciated. Myrtle Beach is too far north, for me to make a weekend trip out of it.

RE: Towing above 65

In GA the published speed limit for towing is 55. I have never seen a sign saying such, but I know that the limit exists. That being said, I don't think anyone follows it. I have been passed when I was towing and driving around 60mph, by so many different combinations, that I feel like I am creeping, but I feel more comfortable and in control. Last weekend and this past Friday, I spent a number of hours on interstates in the state and it seemed NO ONE drove 55. Friday, I was in rain on I75 and the only place people were driving 55 was where traffic was backed up due to accident and all lanes were at about 20mph.
