The two family campers and a buddy's camper are all going to a local campground in about a week to kick off the season. There are about 75 full hook up sites there and 3 loops. Loop 1 has about 15 sites, Loop 2 has about 30 sites and loop 3 has about 20 sites. With those 75 total sites, only about 31 sites are actually reserved for when we're going so you can imagine how spaced out everyone is with it being less then 50% full. You can select what sites you want.
Anyway, we booked the end of loop 3 which has about 20 sites. Loop 3 consists of 2 rows of about 10 sites in each row. We booked the two sites at the very end of the loop so that you don't have anyone across from you as you walk out the trailer. The third camper that is coming with us is right next to us.
I just looked at the bookings for our days out there and found that the 3 sites next to us are reserved too. I don't get it. You have the entire CG open and you decide to book RIGHT next to other people? I mean, you couldn't at least give a one site spacer? I have no problem being next to people in the busy season but it's really the offseason now and we just wanted some peace, privacy and relaxation. To me, it's like you're standing at an empty wall of urinals and a guy walks in and uses the one right next to you.
I realize it's just a silly complaint but I just wanted to vent a little. lol
IF they were like me (the other people who booked) they have a list of favorite sites and when they called to see if they were available, they took it. Most don't look at the whole grand scheme of the CG first. I don't really compare this to the urinal analogy at all because when I call to book, I have sites that I know I like, and I just ask if they are available. Most are not looking to see where everyone else in the camp is booked because that can be a laborious conversation with the reservation clerk to see where everyone is if it is a large CG. I certainly don't go to the trouble of asking if there are multiple families in the surrounding sites (and most often the reservationist is not aware when you call who is traveling together, they just see booked sites). I expect there will be neighbors when I book so I don't worry about it. Much unlike the urinal when you can see at that moment who is occupying what.
My take on it is, as long as I get a site that I know I like, I am well aware I might have neighbors. That isn't a real biggie. It's not like I am an unruly or rude neighbor so they won't be bothered by my being there.
I was amazed to check the Apple support site and find that Vista is an OK operating system for iCloud. :-)
Take a look at the iCloud support site and see if it can help you solve your problem.
I searched the support communities section for "Bonjour Vista" and got a lot of hits. I did not read through any of the answers, but you should.
I know. I was surprised too that Vista is an OS that you can use icloud on. I have been checking the support communities, but most of the things they suggest I've tried and not working. Thanks for your response though!
I can't answer as to what "most people" do but I have always paid cash. Yes JayWalker2009, cash. I consider an RV to be a toy, if you aren't in a position to pay cash then you really can't afford it.
Totally disagree, and that is the kind of arrogant statement I was referring to when I wrote my first post. There are many ways to use financing to your advantage. It isn't our fault you don't know how to do that. And nope, won't be entering retirement in debt either. I dont think it is anyone's place to tell someone else what they can afford if you are not paying their bills.
This is the way we used to do it.
NO sway bar.
Nobody telling us we couldn't to that.
Nobody being in a panic because we were on the road.
They also didn't give out DUI's like they do now. But that doesn't mean that was the safest option to have more drunks on the road.
I am all for nostalgia, but not everything that is done today is necessarily worse than it was back in 'the good old days".
How many years do most people finance their new trailer for ?
The rates are reallly low now, under 5%, so would it make sence to
go longer term and pay extra if you have it but not over commit on larger payment in shorter term?
You will probably get a lot of "I only pay cash" responses on this forum. I always find it hard to believe that all of these people buy their rigs outright, but that is what the bulk claim. For some reason people think it is a sign of weakness to finance anything (and/or admit they finance it). Must be nice to be so wealthy. ;-) I am sure some have paid with cash but again, hard to believe the large number here that I see say this.
I did finance mine, and don't remember the rate as that was quite awhile back, however, I would go with the best rate and shortest plan option.
I have an iPhone, an iPad, and a PC. The PC is my main computer use at home and is a desktop. It is running windows vista (ugh). I am trying to install Apple iCloud on the PC so that when I am on the road camping the pictures, music, etc that I download on the road will be able to have easy access on my pc, and vice versa when I download on the pc first. The problem I am having when I try to install icloud is an error that reads:
"Service Bonjour Service could not be installed. Verify that you have sufficient priveleges to install system services"
I did some searching on the net to see if I could find an answer, but so far haven't found one that works. I disabled my Windows firewall temporarily thinking that might be my issue. It isn't, or at least turning it off still isn't allowing me to install iCloud. I am the administrator of this PC and am not logged into any other user on this. I am logged in as the main account/administrator. This has happened before with other situations in the past and it seems really stupid to me since I only have one account and that is the main user, i.e. me, and I should be the admin.
I even tried to download the file and run it by right clicking and choosing the 'run as administrator' option, but still got an error that the installer ran into errors and could not finish.
Anyone else run into this problem before, and if so, what did you do to resolve it?
Has anyone run into this? Any suggestions?
As has already been stated if you use a lot of water there is no need to be duped into RV toilet paper. Holding tanks are not septic systems.
Personally I use Scott but if I am out I will use whatever the camp store happens to sell that is NON rv because the RV type is way too expensive and not useful.
Someone could have taken out the couch and replaced it with a chair. I did that to my own Fleetwood back in 2000 and then sold it. The person who bought it from me knew I took it out, but if it was sold again someone else could have thought that was factory that way since I replaced the couch with a flexsteel recliner that matched the interior.
