RE: Best Non-Pet Loop at Fort Wilderness

Notice their wording. Do not think they have non-pet loops. The dog park is closest to the 300, 400, 500 and 1400 loops. The premiums are more centrally located and have more concrete. I found the 1400 loop to be tight for my 33 ft TT. It is close to activities. The other premiums are along the main drag, with the 400 just off the side, but near the rear activity hub.

RE: What is the etiquette when staying at Walmart pkg lots

Allstays has an app we use for Walmarts. People comment on their visits so you'll have an idea of what to expect. We seem to time our stop overs the same night they clean the parking lots with street sweepers.

RE: Tow vehicle question?

No prank;although I am not positive about 5er weight; I bought the dodge new and it has been a great truck;it is getting some age on it and starting to blow oil out the breather tube ,still runs as good as new,just thinking about trading up::thanks for the replys; Tom Sorry about that. Having a '99 diesel I understand the appeal to a new rig and even downsizing to a 3/4 gasser to shave $$ off the cost and to help in maneuverability and non-towing use. They are quieter, seem to having the capability, and wont have the maintenance needs (shouldn't at least). It's just hard to trade 13 MPG towing for 9-10 towing and then add a truck payment. For me cost is a major factor.

RE: Anyone own the Mesa Ridge 310bhs?

Hah, so we are all towing with 7.3s. I have the Blue Ox as well, but with 1000 lb bars and new bars should be easy. It the receiver hitch that'll need upgrading. We use radios for backing in too, much better than phones. We will be in the pet loop at Ft. Desoto and try to get over there 3-4 times a year, but are in a long dry spell. Would love to get in there in the fall if the family schedule allows.

RE: Anyone own the Mesa Ridge 310bhs?

We'd love any of the three. Have to come to terms with the price and the fact that it would create a 60ft long rig. Also that tongue wieght ?? would require a hitch upgrade. How does that much tongue weight affect the ride? We have a dually so capacity is not a concern but comfort is. We are trying for Ft Desoto for the Last week of December. Cross our fingers.

RE: In search of large family Bunkhouse

Based on your truck, take a look at the Passport 3350. Is about 6500lbs dry and has a cargo capacity around 2800lbs. I have a passport and recommend you stick with the 2-3 models that have 15" wheels. The 225/75-15s can be had in higher load ratings and have much more weight capacities than Passport's usual 205/75-14s. I have a dually and we were considering the 3350. 1.5 baths would come in handy with lots of people. Also has a U shape dinette to squeeze in more bodies. The negatives for me was a lack of skylight in the shower (at 6'3" I cannot completely standup).

RE: Anyone own the Mesa Ridge 310bhs?

We are looking at the Light 308BHS. Love the layout of this one and the Mesa Ridge and Roamer 310BHS. The quality of Open Range is appealing as well. We go to Ft Desoto and few times a year. Will be there next month.

RE: Fort desoto Florida

The road to the park are great, minus a couple of tolls. Inside the park is another story. Section 1 is for tents and popups. Do not try to fit a trailer over 20ft in there. Section two is the pet loop. It's road is curvy with lots of trees, but I've seen large toy haulers go down there without hitting anything. It's sites sizes vary. Section 3 is non pet RV loop. It's roads are straight but the water sites are on the short side. Their website shows you the dimensions and a photo of each site. Some sites have tricky approaches as they try to preserve the trees and there are a lot of them. There are raccoons, but the only time they were a problem for us was right after a tropical storm evacuation. We checked in the day they reopened and the place was dead for a couple of days so the coons converged on the few campers that was there. That being said, Ft Desoto is our favorite local campground and is very popular with the fishing, beach and paddling crowds.

RE: Is there a QUALITY Travel Trailer still built?

Feel your pain. Our Passport is cheap, but we knew that going in and it has had only minor issues the 6 years we've used it. Still does the job. Now we are shopping for it's replacement because we want more room. The kids are a lot larger and there's two dogs, one being large himself. We are looking at another Passport, and Grand Design Imagine, and an Open Range Light (which is not light). Three different price points and three different levels of expectations. Compared to our Passport, the new Passport has some improvements, but also some items have been cheapened or removed so it's on the bottom of the list. It's on the list mainly due to price. The Imagine line is new so there's no history out there to help with decision making, but its looks to be much closer to the OR than the Passport. Hoping Grand Design is a good company. The OR only has the price tag going against it and we really like the open ranges. But at their prices it better work. We are revisiting them today for a more thorough inspection.

RE: What Is My Tongue Weight Given These Weight Slips

Your truck is 11,100 lbs? Wow, my 2WD crew cab dually is 7,500 empty. Is that a 4x4 450?
