RE: Campgrounds near Aiken, SC

I'm a native to Augusta. In our opinion, the best campgrounds are the COE campgrounds out at the lake. I need to run buy Heritage next time we are back in town to visit our families. I was just there a week ago visiting my mom in the hospital at Ft Gordon and drove close to it going in Gate 1. If you look at the aerial view, you will see that they have made a few sites nice with a patio and what looks like gravel. For years this was a dirt road trailer park. And not really a favorable part of town. You can still see their are full size trailers there. I had heard that a lot of people working in town stay there for longer terms. As mentioned, its been getting some decent reviews as of late. I don't want to give it a bad rap and need to check it out. I just remember what that area looked like and what it was before. If you need to be over by aiken, you can also look back towards Columbia. Betty's RV Park in Beech Island is rated good on RV Parks Review and is a Passport America park. That's another I need to go and check out. No website, but they do have a Facebook page with some photo's. doesn't look bad. Passport America rates (up to 2 days) is either $10 or $15. I guess it depends on 30 or 50 amp. Not a bad deal at all.. Full hook ups, but no bath house.

RE: Change in vacation plans

That place is beautiful. It's on our list to go back when we can. Yeah I can feel the slight breeze again as I sit outside under the awning or the umbrella....

RE: RV Park, Full Amenities but no hot water

"having" to have hot water reminds me of something that my wife and daughter learned while volunteering at the church food pantry. Did you know people on food stamps can not buy toilet paper with them? No paper products at all, matter of fact. My wife told me this as they learned it at the food pantry and asked me how that can be. I told her simply it wasn't a necessity. She disagreed...lol

RE: Drone carrying a video camera

Unfortunately, some people are ruining it for the rest. They are starting to restrict the drones more and more now. There are already many state and municipality laws concerning them and the FAA is trying to get their hand in on them as well. Lately being that if you are using one for commercial reasons, then you have to have a pilots license. This is of course if you remain legal.

RE: Toadless

We actually are making out a little better. The pay off changed overnight and we will be out about $12. I looked over several sites and dealer retail value on my car was about $17k at the most. They are paying about $1500 more than that and that payoff amount includes my extended warranty, which I will receive a prorated portion of. Right now, I am evaluating what kind of car I want to get. I have the chance to make a change. I looked for cars just like mine, but am having a hard time finding one that has all the things mine had. And I am not sure if I want to stay with it. I'm currently looking at Subaru's (XV Crosstrek). One of the things we are debating on is whether to get a car that is towable or not. I'm leaning towards geting one that may not be towable. WE like our tow dolly and have no issues with it, but the fact is that we only use it a couple times a year. I'm not sure if I want to limit my choice of a daily driver to something that can be towed on the tow dolly (or even 4 flat) for just a couple times a year. And to be honest, if we need a car, we could just rent one when we get where we are going and not have to worry about it. It starts sounding better the more I think and talk about it. If full timing, it would be totally different. But for a week long trip once or twice a year and the weekends, it doesn't sound worth it.

Change in vacation plans

We originally planned to go to the Keys in July for 2 weeks. Made reservations for one of the weeks at two different state parks (by the way, canceled them the other day for Curry Hammock and Bahia Honda). The second week was undecided and we were still planning it when my wife changed jobs. Due to not being able to get two weeks off, we decided to do just the one week. Then my car accident happened and we weren't sure if we would be able to go . Thought we might have to use the vacation money our car. So we started rethinking things. Fortunately, things are working out on the car thing. But we did change our plans. We decided to go back to Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort for a week. Will cost us around $15-20 more per night, but you can't beat the amenities and sites. Was even able to get our favorite site again! http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/Hilton%20Head%20Island%20Motorcoach%20Resort/9a468e82b688665cf1123904e4658e29.jpg width=800

RE: RV Park, Full Amenities but no hot water

Been several days and no response back from the OP. Here's my 2 cents.... 1) I agree, it would be nice if they would of let you know when checking in that there are problems with the hot water with an undetermined time on it being repaired. Offer the patron to not stay or give them a slight discount. 2) There are places that do have showers without hot water. So why the norm for most places is to have it, I wouldn't be surprised too much if there were some places that didn't. 3) I kind of agrree with westernrvparkowner somewhat about the difference in the units people are using. But just because someone is staying in a pop up, I don't think they should be given any different treatment than someone in a motorhome. Not everyone has a working shower in their motorhome, nor does everyone use their shower. Many like to use the showers at Rv parks. It's kind of like saying that you would given preferential treatment to patrons with kids if the swing set was broken over an older couple who doesn't have any kids. With that said, I think there needs to be some common ground, patience and to work with the park. 4) I don't thikn $50/night is pricey. $100+, yes, but given the average cost to stay at a state park now is about $25-30/night with just electric/water (more in many places), $50 for full hook ups and more than likely more amenities is somewhat decent, based on the location and appearance of the park.

RE: Really?

wbwood, Thank you for your time today. If I can be of any help in the future please let me know. I would be happy to help. Thank you, Mark Marcus' Rapid Response Team goodsamcs@goodsamfamily.com Be of any help? Serious? After the chastising call you gave me? By the way folks, they apparently have the ability to get your phone number. No need to respond to them in a private message with your contact information. That is apparently a ploy to deflect and defer any further communication. I noticed they never said that to me in my other threads. I guess they knew I would probably follow through with it. I really never expected such rudeness. Great customer service! NOT! Your post is like listening to one side of conversation OR coming in on a partial conversation....... Have NO CLUE what you post is about other than some dealings with Mark from Rapid Response Team. Course that does imply a lot..........as I'm not fond of their canned responses. It was referred back to Marks posting when he closed my last thread. Needless to say, I received a phone call from him last week. Never gave him my contact information, so they must be able to find it. Anyway, he was rude and chastised me during the conversation. Definitely not a customer service friendly type of conversation you would expect. Just want people to know that the conversation did not go well and from Mark's response on there, everyone would think it did.

RE: Liesure Travel Vans

We like the Leisure Travel Vans....but unfortunately there are not so many dealers that carry them. Here's the listing of dealers for our location in NC.

RE: Toadless

Thanks all. I got the numbers from her insurance company. Way better than I expected. They are paying out the entire payoff on my loan minus about $70. I will cancel the extended warranty and will get a good part of that back, so I am coming a little ahead...

RE: Toadless

Is that the Titanium? There's a big difference between it & the SE, When I was looking at them I decided to go with the Titanium that comes standard with almost ALL the things that are optional on the SE. nope it's the SE.

RE: North Carolina Ocean Campgrounds.

Carolina Beach State Park isn't on the beach, or at least not on the ocean. If you want to lay on the beach you better pick a different state. Totally wrong about the laying on the beach part... But on a note about Carolina Beach State Park, they are adding hookups to a few sites this year. If I remember correctly, 8 of them.

RE: Toadless

Everyone is ok...I had some air bag injuries (minor), bruised knuckles and i'm still a little sore. Luckily there was a witness behind me (that works for the Police Dept) that saw her run the red light. Unfortunately, it took them until Tuesday to get with the witness (playing phone tag) and confirm the story. The other lady of course said she had the red light. The insurance company (National General), finally claimed liability for it Tuesday afternoon and finally got me in a rental. Their loss specialist contacted me and was gonna give me some numbers, but she didn't have all the correct info on my car. She had it as having all standard equipment which it didn't. I told her I had the window sticker and I scanned it amd emailed it to her. She said it would definitely help. I am still waiting to hear back from her. She did say that it would take the number to a level more than what she can authorize and have to get management approval. We'll see... I'm gonna get screwed on it. Only made 4 payments so far. And no, I didn't pay for gap insurance.

Toadless

Well, we are toadless for the time being. Last week on my way to work a lady ran a stop light and we collided. My new 2014 Ford focus that I had since December was totaled. Going through the pains of dealing with her insurance to get a settlement. Hopefully in the next day or two, we will have it. http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j331/brianwood69/F52CA2B5-220F-432C-929E-590728F89AA9.jpg width=800

RE: Wow

To Marcus' Rapid Response Team, Please feel free to take the initiative and close this thread. Obviously my complaints do not matter and I would not to impose any negative "off-topic" discussion.

RE: The Death of The Samboree?!

We looked at joining a local chapter and found the whole thing disorganized. Contacted 3 or 4 different chapters. One I never heard from. Another I didn't hear from for a month or so because the person getting the email was in the hopsital (come to find out, the entire chapter were older retired people), and the third we did hear back from and they sounded like they might of had some younger people in the group. But we couldn't make it to their campout (and it was a place we really didn't care to go to) and it did sound rather boring. To be hoenst, I would rather just make some friends with local families (with kids around our kids age) and do it how we want to do it. We've met a few great people(and their families) from the forum here (wills250PSD, mockybirf, cecilT) at different campgrounds. Much rather do that and go and enjoy a beer around the campfire in the evening, than being on the same schedule all day long. People wanna do things different. And that should be ok. I shouldn't have to feel the need to go to someones campsite in the morning for coffee and donuts. Or to go out to eat at some place out in the boonies. We may not want to go out to eat. Or we may want something different.

RE: No waste hookup

Now here's a thought? After each kid takes a shower, dump the gray into a bucket and have the kid dispose of it! I bet your water usage will drop to ZERO! Great idea!! Everyone carry your own water usage to the dump area! :B There will be a lot of volunteering to go to the bath house...lol

RE: Wow

Dang, I replaced the whole roof on my 95 jayco TT and did not use 12 tubes, someone must have had a side job to do. Did you ever hear from Marcus or did you get swept under the rug? Nope never heard anything...I would say that they were meaning the entire reseal, top and sides, were going to take 12 tubes. But it should be 2 different products.
