RE: Myrtle Beach during Christmas

And be aware that most of the seafood restaruants will probably be closed during that time.

RE: house drapes open or closed while away?

Closed...with them open they can tell if anyone is inside. If they are left open at night, that will look odd. Leave them closed and let them wonder. Having a timer that can work at different times is great. Leaving front porch light on all night is not a good idea either.

RE: Top Sail

Google "Destin for kids" and you will come up with a bunch of stuff. Just know that Topsail is a good 15 minute ride from Destin itself. There isn't anything for them to do right outside the park, except ride a bike towards Santa Rosa Beach. Topsail itself has a pool, shuffleboard and some other things for kids to do. My 13 yr old daughter loves it there.

RE: Lakewood CG Myrtle Beach for Thanksgiving

Have camped there before, but not during Thanksgiving week. With it being a christian based park and with the "High Stepping Country" stage area, I would imagine that they would have something going on that week.

RE: Campground search tools

Hi, Google maps. Here is the "string" campground loc:town name, state/province This is what I've been doing as well. Except I just do it by the state. Then follow up on particular parks with RV Park Reviews. Doing it this way, you will see some places not listed elsewhere. Maybe for good reasons...lol but it's good to see what is actually out there.

RE: Betty Crocker

Link Removed Fall Favorites Don't browse these hungry, kind of like going to the grocery store hungry. First link doesn't work...I believe it was directed towards your email...Second link will get you to Betty Crocker's website. Go on there and explore...lots of stuff...recipes (a lot of slow cooker for those who take theirs with them)....coupons... If you click the "Join Free" you can sign up with your email. I will warn you, you will get at least one email a day from them with recipes and other good stuff. So if you don't like getting that type of email, then don't join.

RE: How do you carry Blue Tote?

I guess it would be a lot easier with a Class A or C. Yes it is... :)

RE: Towable versus Motorized RV?

So WBWood, did you buy your MH used? I have such a fear of buying anything this big used, fearing I am buying somebody else's problem. Nope...bought the TT and the MH new....First pop up we bought in 2000 was new....the pop up we bought last year, but never end up using was used. As far as new vs used....we feel the same way. I want to spend my time enjoying the unit, not worrying about something breaking or having to repair it.

RE: CW $59 install (read the fine print)

10% seems high for shop supplies. But same goes for any labor quote will never be what is quoted due to the added shop fee. The coupon gives a discount on labor.... nothing else. What do you expect? Have had work done at CW and been charged a shop supply fee...never been a percentage...

RE: Towable versus Motorized RV?

Since you already have the large truck, I would go with the towable/fifth wheel. You will have better use of the space. We opted for the unit we have as we did NOT want a big truck, the 30ft size is easy to drive and park, and setting up is a 5 minute task, and don't have to get out in the rain to go from driver seat to living space. Agreed

RE: Towable versus Motorized RV?

While I have not owned a motor home, I can definitively say that we will always have a towable. For 2 main reasons. One is that care and maintenance of a towable is a fraction of the cost and time of a motorized RV. Have to disagree...no more cost on our Class C with a V10 motor than the F250 that we had with a V10 motor. Since you need a truck to pull a towable, you need to include it in the cost of maintenance. The second is usability/drivability. In many places it hard to park a motor home. How is it hard to park a motorhome? Especially if you have not owned one? We have owned both and I can tell you, it's much easier to park a motorhome than it is a towable.

RE: Towable versus Motorized RV?

The debate again....bottom line it's preference..... We've owned both. Previously a 35' TT and towed it with an F250. Now we have a 32' Class C motorhome. Our preference is the motorhome. Mainly due to simplicity. We can get in, crank it up and go. We don't have to hook it up or unhook it. It's much easier to back into a site with, plus we don't need as big of a site to park the truck in addition. Driving is much more comfortable with the motorhome than with the truck/trailer. You are constantly having to see where the back of the trailer is going. We were about 55' or more in total length hooked up with a pivot point in between. Even with the WDH and sway control, a good wind or truck coming up beside you, you give you a push to the side. There's a difference in the way the motorhome handles it than the truck/trailer on that pivot does. People with towables will try and use the excuse of "I don't want to care for an additional motor". I used to think the same way when we had our towable. But I looked at the numbers and realized that was silly to think that way. Since you already have a truck and plan on using it for other things, then by all means save the money and go the towable route. Our thing was that we didn't have a truck, nor did we need one. So that was an additional cost for us. We traded in a mini van for it. The truck got 11-12 mpg not towing anything. Towing it got 8 mpg. So it really wasn't feasible for us to have as a second vehicle. We live 35 miles from my work and I drive a little commuter car. My wife works from home most of the time, but has to drive that 35 + miles every so often for meetings. Her driving the truck into town cost us $20 a trip. Plus the cold winter days or rainy days she would use it to take our kid to the bus stop and sit there idling...After a few years of that, and figuring most of our trips were to the beach 4 hrs away, we decided to keep the TT stored at the beach (campground would put it on site for us) and trade in the truck for an SUV for my wife (twice the gas mileage). We ended up getting a used pop up to pull behind the SUV for trips to the mountains. That was short lived. We got a great deal on our current motorhome and traded in the TT and pop up on it...

RE: How do I know what I'm looking for?

Here's my opinion as a military brat growing up and having been in the military myself and now an RV owner...I agree with the others. If you are able to be in base housing, then do so. Not only for a financial standpoint, but for your and your kids social life. Don't give up everything that the base can give you. Getting one for your PCS moves and vacations is a great idea!

Betty Crocker

Anyone else get the recipe emails from Betty Crocker? I get them and get a new recipe email daily plus some others. There are a lot of recipes on there that can be made in the dutch oven and seem somewhat simple too. There are some "skillet" recipes that you can do in cast iron skillets as well. Just an FYI....

RE: New RV Podcast

The podcast is embedded and plays ok here...no virus warnings, but I did get a pop up ad from Adchoices....does that make it a "commercial enterprise"?

RE: How do you carry Blue Tote?

Why have to dump twice or more when you can do it once? Besides my grandson says it looks like an ugly "toy wagon." :B Two or sometime three dumps are required when the camper tanks are larger than the blue boy tank. People often by a smaller tank to reduce weight, and then realize that they have to dump twice. The extra water does not fit well in your pocket.:B I believe they were referring as to what i was referring to. You dump it in the tote, that's once...then you drag it to the dump station and dump it again. That's twice as many times. If your tote is not big enough to empty the tank on your RV, then that's even more dumping.
