RE: Trailer got broken into. Thief totally destroyed the door.

When that happened to us many years ago, the thief destroyed the door because the deadbolt was locked. After replacing the door, the dealer advised us to just lock the other lock, since that would keep honest people out, and not as much damage would be done with another breakin. We found a new storage lot, and so far things have been ok anyway.

RE: Considering a 2008 Aspect 26A, any owner input

Ours is a Ford E-450 too. We've had it since 08 with no out of the ordinary problems. The bed is in the corner, which makes it hard to make up and a little cramped, but other than that we's liked it a lot.

RE: Great Smoky Mtns-Cataloochee

Never camped there, but we drove our toad there a few years ago. It was a narrow gravel road with blind hairpin curves. I remember thinking there was no way I'd want to take my MH there. However, there were several good sized campers in the CG. It depends on how determined you are.

RE: Cincinnati Ohio - When is it usually safe to dewinterize?

Third week of April usually works for us.

RE: downsizing - need advice

Our A/C is good until the outside gets above about 90. Above that it runs all the time and keeps the inside just bearable. We were in 100 degrees a couple of times, and it wasn't comfortable. All our previous units were travel trailers, and they were better in the heat.

RE: Route 50 West Virginia

It's a fun drive if you have a motorcycle or a sporty car. For anything else, it's a drag.

RE: Porta Bote feedback

We had one for several years and liked it a lot. We only used it on small secluded ponds and lakes and drove it with an electric trolling motor. That was only a little faster than rowing, but much more restful. Had to give it up after becoming disabled, too much trouble getting into and out of it. It was fun, and much better than a canoe.

RE: Construction threw Nashville

We went threw Nashville 01/31 and back on 02/08 on I-65 with no delays or problems at all. That was on Saturday and then on Sunday, so it may not be typical. Most of the construction was about 20 miles south of Nashville.

RE: Are Slide Lock Bars Necessary?

I've always used the one that came with my unit and always wondered if it was really needed. I've also worried about forgetting it and causing problems. Maybe next season it will go away.

RE: passing signal

We do NOT need to copy what they do in Mexico. I've driven down there a few times, and I wouldn't do anything they do.

RE: I need suggestions for a TOAD

You know that 2015 engine and transmission technology has moved beyond the need of having 6 or 8 cylinder engines for light tows? Ford Escape meets your requirements and tows four down as do others from GM. Last I heard, Ford Escape cannot be towed 4 down. Has this changed for 2015?

RE: Newbie, probably a stupid question

My grandfather always said there are some things you should never do in the same house you eat in. That's why he had an outhouse, and never would let anyone install an indoor toilet.

RE: how to get spare key?

Don't know about Subaru dealers, but my Ford dealer cut a plain key for me. Near as I remember it cost about $5, but that was three years ago.

RE: Which State Has the Best Drivers?

I belive Texas has the friendliest drivers but the best i think are in Oklahoma Well, I guess you haven't spent much time or lived in Oklahoma. If it's got an OU sticker on it, you had better watch out. It will either run you off the road cutting you off without a signal, or run into you going too fast. 9 years there was enough... Is there a good speed to have people run into you?

RE: Little Farm on the River

For those of you who have stayed here ... If we stay at the rivers edge sites, is it a long walk to the bath house? Thanks! They have a bath house on the river edge part of the CG, around site 150. If you reserve a site in that area, it's a short walk. The web site does have a CG map with site numbers you can look at on littlefarmresort.com

RE: 2015 CRV and Towing

I bought one of the last of the 2014 models last month. If you check around, you should be able to find some still on the dealer lots. Good catch on your part, read on here someone bought a new Jeep Cherokee with wrong transmission and it would not tow 4 down. They were up a creek. Thanks. There have been rumors printed in various car magazines that the 2015 was going to have a CVT, and currently no car with a CVT is flat towable. Hubby and I decided to get a 2014 while the selection was good. ..Minor correction, but: The Ford Cmax and Fusion hybrids have a CVT transmission, and they are flat towable, with full factory support (although they are probably about the ONLY CVT transmission vehicles that can be flat towed, haha). Thats what we have (a 2013 Fusion Hybrid), and we are very happy with it. Will Thanks for the correction. This gets corrected about once a month, several times by me. No one ever seems to remember the Ford Hybrid CVT is the exception to the rule.

RE: 2015 Honda CRV....... not towable

A steel belt driven CVT is not towable on all four wheels, with the increase in popularity in belt driven CVTs in small cars there will probably be fewre flat tow options available. The Ford hybrid's are power-split CVTs, the CVT feature is provided through a planetary gear set as opposed to a steel belt, this architecture is easier to design for flat tow capability than a steel pusher belt CVT is. Wonder why they don't all do it that way. Our Escape Hybrid had been great as a toad, CVT and all.

RE: KY, OH, IN or TN

Little Farm on the river in Rising Sun Indiana is nice, has full hookups, and you can reserve sites on the river. Not very exciting camping, but it would do for a shakedown trip. They have a web site. I don't remember the name, but it comes up if you do a search for Little Farm on the River.

RE: How is I-75 in Ohio?

We came south from Toledo to Ky on I-75 last week, and except for construction on about a 30 mile section south of Toledo followed by construction through Dayton, and then the section in Cincinnati, it wasn't bad. Lane restrictions all over the place and very rough pavement, but it didn't really delay us much. Maybe 475 in Dayton would have been better, but we didn't try it. Good luck.

Thanks for the post. The article was very interesting.
