RE: Bunks vs Bunk House

Anytime that you know you are going to spend all of your time outside, it rains every day of your vacation even tho the forecast has been for sunshine for the entire time. Be prepared.

RE: Looking for a trailer manual for a friend

I would guess that the original owner threw the manual away as it was a useless piece of nothingness. Tell him to come here and start making his own.

RE: Utah Vacation

Bryce Canyon is incredible. Zion is more famous but Bryce magnificent. Get information on things in each area you are going to. Some things that do not make the National Parks are great. If you have children 4 and up Goblin Valley will be a great stop for one day.

RE: Heart broken!

The snow on top of ours is about a foot deep.

RE: Are You a Dog Lover or Dog Parent

Dog parent. My husband would tell our dog to go ask Mom and she would come straight to me. Our cat thought he was a dog and acted the same way.

RE: Levi Jackson & All Other Kentucky SPs; Never Again!

We stayed in one Kentucky SP and it had everything you could want in a state park except decent camp sites.We visited several others and found them the same. We changed to the Daniel Boone NF campgrounds and visited the state parks during the day. Found every state has the small campsites in older parks. We just check them all out more carefully. With a complaint we usually call.

RE: Anyone using "Sniff and Stop" as a mouse preventative?

We just got some. It was recommended at the local hardwear store but their job is too sell their products. Will know in the spring if it works. Sure miss out cat.

RE: A bit of a 911 here

Pile on extra blankets and ride it out. Good luck. Look on this as an adventure rather than a mistake.

RE: Looking for suggestions

Our old Outback will sleep ten but it will not live ten. I think you would need a tent or two to make living seven possible. I would also think that you would have to be near enough to park bathrooms to use them. My mother had to wonderful time camping in tents with her family of eleven so it is possible. That was in very early 1900s.

RE: Clean Uo Your Cast Iron Cookware

I remember my great grandmother saying that it was time to make bacon to bring back the cast iron frying pan. I make bacon in mine several times a year and let the grease sit for several hours. Do not not know if that really helps but I am still using the one she used for years before she died in 1947

RE: Things for the new travel trailer

While camping we have had people borrow matches, needles, sugar, axes. tarps. chairs for when they had company, clothes lines and clothes pins, plastic table cloths to go over picnic tables which seldom look real clean. Lots more but that is all I can think of now.

RE: winter camping in the carolinas/florida?

In Michigan we get water from the campground bathroom and use it for washing dishes, cooking. etc. We have tent camped in eight inches of snow so you should have no problem. We use an electric blanket so we do not have to have the heat turned up high at night. And yes it works in a tent or RV at night.

RE: 2 cats 1 golden retriever & litter box

Put a heavy piece of plastic that is larger than the litter box under it so when the cats bury the litter it stays off of the carpet or out of the shower.

RE: RVers who buy up campsites

There are several states that have rules that you must occupy the site to keep it. I assume your state is not one of them. And I remember a NF campground that had the same rule. Perhaps all NFs do.

RE: Making a lighter load.

We camp for five to thirty days at a time. If we were weekend campers we could get along without a lot of things we take. Our truck pulls the TT with ease.

RE: Metric 1977 12' Trailer

Perhaps manuals were different than but I doubt it. They are useless.

RE: Travel with Cats

Our cat had a bunk. It held his litter box, his food and water dishes and a Rubbermaid box laying on its side with his blanky in so he could look out the window. One cat used litter for multiple cats. No smell.The litter box sat in a low box that caught any litter he raked out. The food and water dish sat on a tray. Once I go the litter box on the wrong side of the food tray. He let me know that I had made a mistake by pacing the floor and glaring at me.

RE: Keystone Outback Rear Slide Out

Ours does not get chilly but we have an electric blanket for cold weather camping and great comforters to use when we camp without electricity. In October this year the temperatures got down to the thirties at night and we were fine. Did not need the furnace on at night with the blanket turned on.

RE: Utah canyon country

Be aware of when spring breaks are. We found that they vary a lot.

RE: Do they ever enforce who parks where in rest stops?

I called a state we were going thru and was told by the highway department that they enforced the parking at rest stops and pulling a TT we would not be allowed to park overnight. When we pulled in there were all sorts of RVs parked in the area for trucks. Duh. We did also.
