RE: Pittsburg

Thanks everyone.
2hams 04/23/14 07:12am Roads and Routes

Looking at routes from Somerset PA toward Berlin OH. Towing a 35' fiver. Both AAA and Google maps suggest I376/US22 directly through the middle of Pittsburg. Any recommendations on taking (or avoiding) this route? We would probably try to time it between 10am and 2pm. We do drive city interstates around home. We won't be in any rush, and will be leaving from Richmond VA with an ultimate destination of Dayton OH in a bit over a week. We've already visiting Kentucky blue grass area in the spring, and are looking for something different. Thanks,

RE: RV Trip thru Southeast Canada and New England Coast

Take the time to tour the Thousand Islands. Don't know if there are any boat trips from the Canadian side, but Uncle Sam's Boat tours out of Alexandria NY is just a short bridge trip across the border. Great scenery, and some north country history.

RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

Could be tough to find one that short. Add Grand Design Solitude to the list.

RE: Any input on Crusader?

Like bird chaser, we preferred the Grand Design floorplan. Access to fridge with slides in was a deal breaker for us.

RE: I guess I'm showing my age......

Great post and great replies! I use internet maps for trip planning, and refer to paper maps for more detailed planning. On the road we use paper maps, supplemented by the GPS to tell us about upcoming turns, distance to destination, etc. We use the GPS locally to find groceries, gas stations, attractions, etc. I use the AAA state maps, since there I can quickly tell if a road is 2 or 4 lane. I use the truckers atlas as a sanity check on where I might not want to navigate the 5er. I LOVE MAPS!! So much so that I ended up in making software for making maps as a career. Things have really changed since those first automated maps of the mid 1970s.

RE: VA diesel drivers

KD4UPL has the reason. Increase in diesel tax. If you save receipts, you can get a rebate from the state since tax is for commercial.

RE: which is better orientation of the MBR on fifthwheel

A lot will depend on the length and weight that you want. Suggest that you go to some RV shows and spend time in some units. You can find a standard queen without a bed slide. We wanted to stay shorter and lighter, so we opted for a closet slide. The closet is not as big, but fine for us for our 4 to 8 week trips. We also liked the layout because we got real nightstands on both side of the bed. In the end, it was what could we access with slides in (like fridge).

RE: Dayton Hamvention

Looking forward to seeing everyone. We will be in the KOA. This is our first time, and we don't know our site number. We'll be in the Grand Design Reflection fiver.

RE: Shakedown cruise

Congratulations! Glad you had a good trip. We just finished a five week longer shakedown and also had good luck. Got to test both furnace and AC.

RE: Long Winter

It has been really tough up north. My cousin likes to take pictures of waterfalls, and sent pictures of Niagara Falls partially frozen and Salmon River Falls completely frozen. We should have stayed in Florida a couple more weeks. It may be one of those years when we go directly from winter to summer!

RE: Richmond area

pitch - We take this route quite often. Following US15, I suggest that you take I180 at Williamsport back to US15 south of Lewisburg. This is not too bad for interstate and you miss lots of in town traffic. I would suggest 288 only if you are staying at Pocahontas State Park; if you are staying at the Americamp off I95 just north of I295, then I295 would be less traffic.

RE: Stainless Steel Cookware?????

DH and I each had dinosaur age Farberware classic SS so when we combined households ended up with a set for the camper. We also have a nonstick frypan.

RE: Richmond area

We travel to NY every other year. Agree with I66 to US17 to I95 then I295 around Richmond. Americamp just north of Richmond is a good overnight and will not take you out of the way or into Richmond traffic. Depending on where in NY you are leaving from, US15 from Corning to I81 at Harrisburg is a good route.

RE: restrictions and price?

The Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel is about $20 and will close if high winds when you wouldn't want to drive it anyway. You must turn off your propane.

RE: Route from Indianapolis to OBX

Imagine you will take US35 to I64. We find the drive through WV with hills and trucks to be very tiring, so you might find the 500 to 600 miles a bit much. Some places we have stayed include Douthat State Park just inside VA, the KOA near Stanton, Misty Mountain in Crozet, Americamp just north of Richmond. If you follow I64 then take I295 beltway on the north side of Richmond, Americamp is where I295 and I95 meet. That puts you about 2 hours from Virginia Beach so you should be late enough to miss rush hour (assuming you don't leave Richmond before around 8). Add about 1 1/2 hours from Virginia Beach to Waves... Crozet is just west of Charlottesville about 4 he's from VB.

RE: A manufacturer who cares!

Jim, It will be worth the wait. We thought we had an intermittent problem and posted on the owners forum. We got an unsolicited call from the service rep at the factory to try and help us! Turns out it was not a problem. We have not found any warranty issues in 28 days on the road.

RE: Camping around Pocatello/Idaho Falls?

The Pocatello KOA is one of the worst places we ever stayed.
