RE: Teddy Roosevelt Park, ND camping?

We stayed in the Medora CG in 2010. Nice enough place, a little dusty when the wind blew but not bad. We also noticed a fair amount of noise from the trains that run around the clock on the track about a half mile away. The South unit of TR was only about a half hour drive away, close enough we could run over there twice a day, and we saw bison, wild horses, and prairie dogs just about as soon as we reached the park. We did the North unit as a day trip in the toad, since it was only 70 miles away. It made for a full day, but at the time the road (route 85) was under construction and very rough, so we didn't want to take the MH on it.

RE: Class C toads

Our 08 Ford Escape Hybrid tows and drives great, but they don't make the Escape Hybrid anymore.

RE: 2016 Coachmen Leprechaun

Am seriously considering the purchase of a 2026 Coachmen Leprechaun . Any comments on this class C? Any comments, pro or con on MHSRV in Alvarado, TX? Thanks in advance. Is this like back to the future? Seriously, we looked at one of those (a 2016 model) and liked the layout. Hope someone has info on these.

RE: Which to choose through Kentucky or West Virginia

Good to know. Have a good trip and enjoy Elk Park. Don't forget the waterfall. We haven't gone there in a long time, but it was impressive and probably still is.

RE: Which to choose through Kentucky or West Virginia

Since we go through Elk Park several times a year I gotta ask...why there? Except for Elk Falls it always seems like there's nothing there. We live just south of Cincinnati and usually take I-75 to Corbin, then 25E down under Cumberland Gap to I-81 and over to the Johnson City area. From Xenia 23 or I-77 probably make more sense.

RE: Ford focus key

Our non-chip key works fine in our 08 Escape Hybrid, it lets you do anything except start the motor. It must be be different for various models or years? A Ford dealer could probably tell you if a Focus would work.

RE: Hiway 50 vs 33 in West Virgina

Never been on 33, but that section of 50 is great for motorcycles or sporty cars. Not good for much else.

RE: Honda HRV

CVTs are never truly disengaged which is why they can't be flat towed - this restriction is true for all CVTs regardless of make. Except Ford has several CVTs that can be towed just fine. We've been towing our Hybrid for 7 years now with no problem.

RE: any advice for a stupid person (me)lol hooking up to a trailer ball

My DW and I figured this out a long time ago. Even though I normally drive, when it comes to hitching up the toad she drives and I give the directions. Saves a lot of stress.

RE: Where not to picnic GSMP

Still scares me that they are going to vote. Don't worry. Most of them don't bother.

RE: 2010 ford focus key position

Our Escape works the same way. Also, the Ford dealer made me a dummy key for about $5. It does everything except start the car, and I can keep the real key and fob in my pocket when driving the MH.

RE: route Marion nc thru mountains to pick-up I-80

I-40 to I-81 is easy enough with our rig. You have to climb Black Mountain, but as long as you take your time it's no problem. I've never done 23 or 26, just I-40.

RE: Keeping a Journal

We journal in a small spiral notebook when we take an extended trip with lots of driving. I keep track of route, mileage, stops, weather, and anything interesting that happens. It varies from a page per day to sometimes a few sentences.

RE: Ford Dealers Won't Service E-450

Have had the same problem here in Cincinnati. Had a Ford Truck dealer not too far from home that did our service for years. Then we noticed the big sign out front was down and a Peterbuilt sign went up. When we called they said they are no longer a Ford dealership. After lots of calls and questions there is only one dealer left who will work on our Ford E450. It is there now getting a fuel pump replaced. There are lots of Ford dealerships but they won't work on the large chassis. Even the new Camping World facility that just opened said they couldn't help. We have a great place to work on the RV issues but getting the Ford E450 part worked on has been a challenge. Is that Fuller Ford, or is there another one I don't know about?

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.
