RE: Back to Destin, Florida

We did Topsail last spring. Make sure you stop at the Donut Hole for b'fast. Did you try to get into Henderson Beach SP? Yeah Henderson didn't have anything and to be honest, I don't want to be down in the middle of it all. We don't make it out for breakfast. Tend to sleep in too late and by the time we all get up, showered and ready to go, it would be nearly lunch time...lol I get up at 4:30 in the morning every day for work. When I have a day off, I don't get to sleep in much past 7am. Sometimes it's nice not to have to get up until my body wants me to...

RE: Back to Destin, Florida

We are more campers than RVers and Grayton Beach is our absolute favorite SP in that part of Florida. In our opinion you can't go wrong with that choice and while you're in that area check out Eden SP. Not very far from there and only a mile off 98. Just a day use park with a very nice old Victorian mansion and great grounds to walk through for a pleasant day. Yeah Grayton is my favorite, based on location. I love Seaside. If they could move Topsail to Grayton's location, then it would be better. Our daughter didn't want to do Grayton because it doesn't have the pool or the wifi. Plus the fact that when we mentioned that we could ride bikes into Seaside, she really hated us...lol Thankfully Topsail was a lot harder to get into...We will have to check out Eden SP. Anything to give us some good video content.

Back to Destin, Florida

Couldn't talk my wife out of it. She insisted on going back to Destin for spring break 2017. I wanted to head further south. But unfortunately, I was able to squeeze 4 nights in at Grayton Beach SP (amongst 2 different sites) and 3 nights at Topsail Hill Preserve SP. Oh well will give some new content to the YouTube channel. lol Looked at Camp Gulf, but at their rate of anything from $85-192/nite, we are staying 7 nights for less than $280. Can't beat the savings. Gas there and back will cost me $500 let alone....lol

RE: Disturbed and disillusioned

Unfortunately NORMAL. CW is NOT very good AFTER the sales I will disagree and agree... Ours was good for the first year while still under warranty....it was after that, when they became bad in our eyes...

RE: Why can't I get what I want with manual transmission

Go to the dealer, rather than edmunds.... Manual transmissions are getting harder and harder to find, but every once in a while, you will find one loaded. In 2014, i bought a ford focus that was loaded with everything except GPS/back up camera (now the camera is standard). It had leather seats, moon roof, nicer wheels, etc... I wasn't on planning on getting it, but when I saw it, I couldn't resist it. Had it for 6 months when a lady ran a red light, hit me and totaled it. I had a hard time finding another one like it and went with a different type of car.

RE: Advise on towing Ford Focus or Fiesta?

Go with a focus over a fiesta....not much difference in price, but a roomier vehicle. My in laws had a 2016 auto focus that they set up for flat towing...no issues with towing, but there was an issue with it not changing gears and stalling out. They since have traded it in. We have a 2016 manual transmission with no issues. Good value and drives good. I had a 2014 (got totaled) that was a manual and drove really good. We used to tow it with a dolly. No issues.

RE: Can I just empty water tanks instead of winterizing?

Have to agree with some of the others...it doesn't really take that long...sometimes we will winterize/unwinterize a couple times a year. If you don't want to run antifreeze through the lines, then at least blow them out and just put antifreeze in the traps. Our local CW here in NC, won't winterize tv's without running the antifreeze through the lines as they can't/won't guarantee anything. I do run it through the lines. Easier to do that, than to blow out the lines. I know for sure that I have antifreeze throughout the lines. I have a relative who only blew out the lines and had a costly repair in the spring years ago. And they were further south than us. Just not worth it to not do it if there is a chance of staying below freezing....

RE: 3 Minute Showers

Get an oxygenics shower head and use less water and your shower will last longer...

RE: Cheapskate question

Unless the dealer is really desperate for a sale, I can't imagine they'd deliver it out of state, unless it is a really short drive. If you are willing to pay for them to deliver it, they might be more open to it. When we purchased a TT in 2010, part of the deal was for them(Camping World) to deliver to a place 4 hours away. Was still registered in our home state, was just being stored at a campground at the beach. I'm sure we ended up paying for it, although they they made it sound like they were doing us a favor. And when we traded it in, it was back at the beach (4 hrs away) and they went and picked up as we traded it in on our current motorhome... once again, I'm sure they didn't lose anything... They can do whatever they want...It all depends on how beneficial the ned deal is going to be for them. Our experience in dealing with buying cars out of state is that there is generally credit from one state to another. Or they will register in your home state for you and you the taxes will be handled accordingly. We never ever had a situation of being double charged for taxes or an issue of them being registered in any other state than where we live.

RE: RVVillage, why?

Here's the issue: The original RVillage has only 1 V in their web address. Someone at Camping World had the bright idea to register the web address http://www.rvvillage.com with 2 V's, to try and capture those folks who type the URL in manually, rather than clicking on a link from elsewhere (e.g., FMCA.com). (BTW, I looked up the domain with ICANN WHOIS, and it is registered to Camping World's parent, Freedom Roads, with the administrator listed as Camping World's webmaster.) If you're typing manually, you'd tend to spell it correctly with 2 -- but the founders of RVillage are creating a unique name with an overlap on RV and Village. What Camping World is doing isn't illegal; it's a typical Web marketing maneuver these days. Any idea which domain was registered first? I would take a guess and say either CW did first or they bought it from someone else... I cant imagin RV Village wouldn't go with the two V's.

RE: Sprinter motorhome boondocking

Beginning to sound more like survival camping on this thread....I would never go camping if I told my wife we needed to do half of what was said here. With that said, we have a 40 gall fresh 29 black and 30 gray. 3 of us can go easily several days. But I do add another 12 gallons or so of water to the fresh in between. The only thing we really do differently is that when taking showers, we use the cut off switch and do the get wet, turn off, lather, turn on and rinse. That's a big savings in itself. We also added a water reducer for the kitchen sink that flows at .5 gallon per minute. It helps out in the kitchen as well. As others stated, it all depends on what you want or are willing to do. You can go in survival mode as others have mentioned and probably easily go a week or two. Or you can just do a couple simple things and extend your stay out for longer than normal.

A good perk of being a member

Wanted to pass on to those that may be thinking of joining Good Sam or may be a current Good Sam member and not know what I am about to mention. With your Good Sam membership, you have access to the SaversGuide. SaversGuide gives you discounts on dining, shopping and entertainment. I was skeptical about it, but when I looked for my area, there was a good bit of deals. We've used it twice. Once at Steak n Shake to get a free premium milkshake when buy one and then last night at a restaurant, where they offered by one entree and get one free with a $7 maximum. The dinners were more than $7, but we got $7 off the meal. Those two times saved me over $10. Nearly half price of a years membership. While this is not the only perk of the club, it's a good one to have. We have a Lifetime membership, so we will always have this for as long as they work with it. Thanks Camping World.

RE: Good Sam discount at Camping World?

Our local Camping World has honored their online prices in-store previously with us.

RE: Moving from SC to MA in the winter towing TT

We were actually impressed with the clearing when we lived up there and according to them it was a record year back then. As soon as it started to snow, we would hear plow trucks within 30 minutes or so. They did a good job keeping the main, secondary and even the little road (no lines on it) cleared. But to try and save a few bucks on a hotel for a couple nights, I wouldn't bother with it. Enjoy your trip up there and don't worry about the camper. Leave it in storage and get it later and make a nice vacation trip back with it in nicer weather.

RE: In general, when do schools start classes?

Georgia starts at the beginning of August. South Carolina around the middle. North Carolina at the end of August. So I would say that sometime in the month of August. lol

RE: Best Practice to tie up dog?

We are ones that hate to see the fencing and pens when we pull up into a campground. Our experience has been that it means there are going to be a lot of yapping going on. Would rather listen to a steady vroom of an open frame generator than little yapping dogs barking at everything that walks by or every leaf that moves. Plus it looks like someone has moved in permanently. I guess we are weird like that. Heck we don't like to see the fridges sitting out there or tables set up permanently with the coffee maker and electric griddle. lol

RE: Best Practice to tie up dog?

6' leash. Is that the law?? Thats only when your walking with them,, you can tie them up with 40' of chain if you desired,, But if your lab is not a chewer I would use Flat Stock webbing, its cheap and light weight you can get at most sporting good stores. I use 20 feet of flat stock with loops sewn in the ends and I bought two of those giant carabeeners from Home Depot,I can hook one end to the picnic table leg and my dog is close to us. He will not chew thru unless his life is in danger!! If yours is a chewer, get some light weight chain!! I believe every place we have stayed says they must remain on a 6' leash at all times. I've never seen it say only when walking them.

RE: Moving from SC to MA in the winter towing TT

Live out of it along the way? Shouldn't take you much more than a couple days. We moved from SC (North Augusta) to Massachusetts (Lunenburg - west of Boston and north of Worcester) back in 2002/2003. Left on December 31st and arrived on January 2nd (only due to a breakdown of our moving truck in NYC (going across the George Washington Bridge). Arrived in 6" of snow. Had another 1.5' drop the next day. I would stay in a hotel. Do you have a place to store the camper when you get up there? You might want to leave it in SC in some storage and make a trip back next spring or summer and get it. That's what we did with the pop up camper we had at the time.
