RE: Why do You Workamp (or volunteer)

We are finishing up five winters in OR state parks and have no regrets. Health is the only reason we are not going for number six.

RE: Wistfully whiling away time in Washington while wife works

We stayed at Cherry Hill. Yes, we paid more but really liked the convenience of the public transportation.

RE: Best route Branson MO to Hot Springs AR?

One thing that no one has mentioned, logging trucks. I'm originally from the Harrison, AR area and for me there is no question 65 for sure.

RE: RV manufacturers, I am calling you out

After owning both new and used, I feel the best value is a used unit that has been well maintained. I know what the yearly costs of maintaining a unit is and whether new or used it works out the same.

RE: First Time Travel Trailer Purchaser

We have a 28' TT and have not found a place we couldn't fit. True we saw some real small spots but after FT for the past 13 years I would first consider where I was going to be camping. We have a 7K trailer that we started pulling with a 1500 suburban then changed to a 2500 with a bigger engine and it did make a difference. We have covered all of the lower 48 plus some of the Canadian provinces but we are coming to the end of the trail the end of May will be when the TT wheels will go to some other lucky person.

RE: Calling All RV Manufactures!

Just a thought, are buyers more willing to pay to have things fixed than those of us who are 70+ and were brought up learning to fix things ourselves?

RE: Choices after coming off the road ...

OP: I think you made the right choice. Moon River gets good reviews and it'll be perfect for your family. However, I'm amazed you kept a storage unit for 13 years and are now sorting through it! It is just us ... we have "stuff" we use in the winter while volunteering, etc. and "stuff" we use in the summer while off the road .. just us ... know that have never added up the "costs", but one kinda has to understand that we had a fire once which took School Annuals, baby books, photo albums, precious memories, Summer/Winter Clothing, etc. etc. Sometimes one just 'collects' and when we started out we were thinking of five (5) years, and time just sorta flew by ... different strokes for different folks .... And in case one is wondering we went from one size to half that size storage unit over the years ... and no relatives with a spare garage. Just more people out there who do this than you would imagine ... some have apartments and store their ski, golf, hunting, sports equipment, etc. ... as well as businesses who store either inventory or business records ... just saying.

RE: New Orleans

KOA West is in a suburb of NO. We stayed there a week and found it to be an okay place. Helpful staff. Clean. There were a few long term residents there. http://koa.com/campgrounds/new-orleans/ We enjoyed staying there in 2010 ...

RE: Suburban SF30 Furnace

After 40+ years of RVing I have learned to replace with the most reliable parts so that is why I mentioned the Dinosaur board.

RE: Suburban SF30 Furnace

Don't forget the control board. I had two of them go out before I had a Dinosaur board installed. The boards are made in Lincoln City, OR.

RE: CB radio vs. cell phone vs. HAM Radio

For all the HAMs out there remember 146.52. I use this all the time and have had some very good contacts. A northern CA net uses this frequency for their "check ins".

RE: Snow white - but snow weight? (How much on roof)

I use a long handled push broom but in reverse. I stand on the ground and very carefully pull the snow off the roof. I wind up with a lot of snow on me but in 40 years of owning a TT here in the snowy northwest have never had a problem. I don't wait until it crusts over so it just comes right off.

RE: Fridge Question

Forget the level for right now, take the outside grill off and put your hand on the chimney. Chimney not hot then call for a tech that is what I have done when the electric as well as the gas burner doesn't work. If the chimney is hot then make sure you are level.

RE: Never Too Late To FullTime

DW and I have followed your adventures as we have full timed since 2004. You are a true inspiration for us in your same age bracket.

RE: Cost of slide motor on '07 HR Endeavor 40PDQ?

I had a board fail, bought a new board and installed it myself. Hope you have the same kind of luck. I believe it was less than $300.

RE: Driver's License Dillema

Doesn't your insurance require a physical address? This may vary from state to state, but we have used one of our daughters for several years now. It looks like 18 will be the end of the endless road for us then we will have some sort of physical address.

RE: Problem features of used travel trailers

A musty smell can be mold and a good inspection is in order.

RE: I need 3 rows of seats and more towing power....

APT answered well. We are from WA and have pulled most of the passes here and elsewhere as we have traveled the last 14 years seeing the lower 48. Our first Burb was an 02 1500 with the 5.3 it did the job but marginally the 08 does just fine.

RE: I need 3 rows of seats and more towing power....

Yes, we have an 08 2500 Burb. Cat scale weights, 7K Burb, 7K RV.. Full time RVers all lower 48 states do not have a complaint with the Burb. Right now looking at 113 K miles, and yes we do have the 3rd row seats. Bought the Burb with 42 miles on the speedometer and we are still doing our camp hosting during the winter in OR.
