RE: Old Station Wagon Slide In.

Not to split hairs or anything, but that's not a station wagon. Station wagons by definition had back seats and cargo decks, all enclosed. I THINK they called these units "coupe utility vehicles" and they made sure to put one of those right-hand French accent things on the "coupe". Fancy!

RE: Tow me Down

Interesting article, but I'm puzzled by the several references to a "60 mph speed limit" when towing in Europe. That's really only true in a very few countries over there- most restrict towing setups to around fifty mph. Link A very sensible approach to the whole stability problem, I think.

RE: Did ya' ever notice?

Why does the lid just settle down on its own for the wife and slam down for the husband? :h Because of differences in diving style- can't reach the good stuff at the bottom and hold on to the lid, too! :B http://www.chicagoreader.com/binary/468f/1347314447-dumpster_diving.jpg width=300 http://www.bestcollegesonline.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/DumpsterDiving1.jpg width=300

RE: Who knows what this is? (Hint - Maxxis)

Can you point me in a direction where a manufacture or tire retailer states that the tire life is 4.5 years? . Coincidentally, the place the O.P. bought these tires is one such retailer, here quoting Discount Tire Trailer Tire Facts -Time and the elements weaken a trailer tire. In approximately three years, roughly one-third of the tire's strength is gone. -Three to five years is the projected life of a normal trailer tire. -It is suggested that trailer tires be replaced after three to four years of service regardless of tread depth or tire appearance.

RE: New Map!

Why do you s'pose some States show nothing at all? Hard to believe that Wyoming and Nevada for example are "healthier" than any others...

RE: RV Food chain

The guy with the 45'DP & the Mercedes toad is severely limited on where he can go 'camping'. The guy with the little popup & mid sized crossover can go almost anywhere. Who is where in the 'food chain'? Well, the guy with big rig does have to eat the most and spend most of his time and resources hunting, so I guess food-chain-wise he's number one. However, pyramid-of-power wise I'm sorry to have to report that he'd be at the very bottom, there being so little room at the top. Pups and Pharaohs rule! :B http://exploringafrica.matrix.msu.edu/images/egypt_hierarchy_pyramid.png width=400

RE: Hybrids going by the wayside?

So many Travel Trailer but few choices in Hybrids with slides. That's probably true. Not that many hybrids with slides. Market forces, I'd bet. Maybe folks that want slides are inclined to just size up to a regular trailer and save themselves the trouble of the bunk ends typical of hybrids. But more "traditional" hybrids themselves are a burgeoning industry. Lots of choices out there!

RE: Sleeping cool without AC

In my opinion, foam is a loser. Every place one lies on it is compressed into a brick. No chance for a breath of air. Or a puff of heat, if needed. What one needs for distribution/dissipation of the body heat we all manufacture so as to achieve efficient heating AND cooling of the human body is air circulation. Foam doesn't allow for that. Best mattress pad bar none is a plain ol' wool fleece, the coarser the better. It will keep you comfortable year 'round, especially if paired with that other perfect moderator of body temps, a down coverlet.

RE: Stolen Camper - Please share!

I'm not aboard with the "meth lab" notion for this trailer. Small trailers are a very hot commodity right now in the grey market. Watch Craigslist, O.P.!

RE: Ultimate mini-camper

Did you use it to travel from town to town, advocating for woman suffrage?! No, mine was the Contrarian View...I went around advocating the removal of voting rights for men. See poster below. As it turned out, the best we could achieve was the grudging permission for Women to Vote. Only time, history, and succeeding generations can judge if that was a victory or not! http://www.learnnc.org/lp/media/uploads/2009/08/votes_for_men.jpg width=500 ;)

RE: Blowout

2) I can't tell what caused the blowout. This tire was 9 years old. 'Nuff said? ;)

RE: Ultimate mini-camper

Thought so- Must've been us you saw- we used to park in the lot behind the church. That's me in my French Maid getup standing next to the engine cowling. ;) http://tinyhouselistings.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/08/autohomes_01_1200.jpg width=500

Anybody have an idea what it could have been? Not without a little more detail....what street did you live on? :B

RE: Squash Patties......YUM

Yum's the word, all right! I'm bettin those would be good on the grill; perfect match for my handy dandy perforated pan. (Greased using a slice of bacon, of course...) Thanks!

RE: Blowout

This tire was 9 years old. I was living on borrowed time, but won't make that mistake again. Borrowed time? That's an understatement! Please lean over re-e-e-e-a-l close to the screen so I can grab some of that luck off ya! :B

RE: Does Anyone Know where I can Get Insurance for this TH??

Is the problem the rig itself, or that it appears to the insurance companies that it's used for commercial purposes? I ask because when we had our farm business, those units related to the farm had to be covered by an umbrella Commercial policy. Our regular home/auto agent set us up with a company that specializes in such insurance.

RE: COE Campgrounds

Every recreation facility the Corps operates is listed at this U.S. Gov't site. Those with "check availability" indicators are overnight campgrounds. Link goes to alphabetical nationwide list but can be searched State by State, too.
