RE: Willow Tree Resort Longs SC

We just camped Willowtree the whole week of Thanksgiving 2013. The sites have plenty of grass and all the sites have a nice paved pad for the RV and a very nice concrete pad for picnic table and any thing else you would want. The campground is nice and clean as is the bathhouses. You must remember you are 10 miles from Cherry Grove section of MB, SC. There is a food lion about 3 miles away on Highway 9 and a Dollar general. Diesel is on the corner of HWY 9 and SC 504. You are about 20 miles or less from Calabash, NC the seafood town. Sunset Beach is near Calabash. Other than being away from everything(the action of MB) it is a very nice CG. One thing is during the fall and winter months they cater to the SnowBirds. They also rent/lease sites year round to others and they have some of the better sites. BUT if you are looking for a place that is away from it all and is nice and clean. This will work. Black Bear golf course on HWY 9 is about a mile from it on the back roads. If I can help with anything else let me know. randy

RE: Warranty Support From Wholesale Dealers

My son in law and daughter bought their camper in Ohio to save around 6K after expenses to travel and bring it back. They had the control panel issue on the cougar. Local camper world serviced it and worked on few other warranty issues for them & In a very professional manner also. Service dept works independent of the sales staff around here any way. randy

RE: awning accesories

Are you talking about a sun screen? One that attaches to the awning rail and stretches out and is anchored? Like this? They will definitely keep the sun out and make it much cooler underneath as long as the wind is blowing in the other direction and they will keep the rain from coming in unless it is windy, then the rain will come right through it....it is mesh. I have one that I made. I purchased the mesh fabric at Walmart a couple of years ago and installed grommets to hang it from the awning. I use the same awning hooks that I have the lights hanging from and then use "balled" bungee cords on the bottom to stretch it out and tent hooks to stake it. We use it on occasion, but not everytime we camp. I did the same thing.. Walmart had several colors and I just copied what I had seen on the others hanging around.. Pretty neat add on. randy

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

Has any one had there MH Washed at the Blue Beacon wash at Haw River NC exit 150 off I-85/I-40 Flying J. I have had good experience at other Blue Beacon Wash, was wondering what if any experience you have had at this particular Blue Beacon. Thanks Roy RoyBuck My son is the 2nd shift wash bay supervisor there. He's off this weekend, but if you go after 3:30pm most days he is working. tell him you know me and he better do it right.. He is wanting me to bring my camper and truck down but the weather has been so screwed up, I hate to spend the money to get the stuff cleaned and then it rains, sheets, snows on it the next day.. randy

RE: Pay As You Go Questions

Bill.Satellite, I have direct at home but we are talking about canceling and going back to TW cable. IS this DISH "pay as you go" a good way to keep my satellite TV viewing when we out on the road. I understand the up front charges, Just wondering if its worth all the hassle and just go with over the air signal while we out and about? Thanks, randy

RE: We just want to park a class A Motorhome in Myrtle Beach

travelfool, With so many campgrounds in and around MB area, about the only place you can leave a camper over night is the walmart parking lot on the south side but most only do it for one night while they wait to get into one of the 3 campgrounds on that end. I have seen them also on the north end Walmart waiting to get into Myrtle Beach Travel park or Apache CG. I know this doesn't answer your question, BUT I have never seen a spot with just electricity that wasn't a campground. Closest campground to downtown area is the KOA a block off the beach near the wooden roll-a-coaster section of MB. They might be able to get you into a popup type site with just electric and water?? just trying to give you some options. randy

RE: What is this dealership trying to do???

Kept my whole hitch setup when I traded for the 5er. I had a reese 1200 WDH and the dual cam sway also. sold all this on craigs list for 200.00 not what I had in it but gave me fuel money for a trip. Dealership never asked for it and I removed it their parking lot. I took everything I had put on the camper off except a magazine rack and some racing decals. All pictures were placed using the 3m contact things. BUT I did not want to leave holes in the wall so I left the rack. randy

RE: List of camping gear?

Beer or what ever you drink! No really you will need about what you will need a home but less of it. You will need enough stuff to keep them happy, feed and sleeping. the length of the trip or stay will determine how stuff you will need. Our daughter and SIL takes our 2 year GS with them and us to camp. they have their own camper. BUT they take toys, pack&play, his food, diapers, and lots of clothes. MORE clothes than I would take. BUT we have in our camper a pack&play and some toys. the rest they bring if we need to keep him overnight. Same as we have at our house. randy

RE: Question on camp chairs

We carry four, two simple folding directors chairs from the Kennedy Space Center, and two super comfy chairs from CW like these, love when there is a chill in the wind, you are protected. We have the same two chairs as rhagfo from CW. then we have 2 of Coleman folding chairs and some times I throw in the wife's gravity recliner chair if we are gone more than a few days. BUT the 4 cairs above stay in the camper basement at all times. Those 2 CW chairs take up lots of room compared to the 2 coleman chairs. IF I know the 2 younger kids might show up I may throw a couple of bag chairs in the truck bed for extra seating. randy

RE: Help me convince "FHU only" friends to try electric only CG

We use our state parks every year and they have maybe electric or water only at every site. We use those sites and use the dump station on the way out. Its not that big of a deal. proper planning is all that is needed. PLUS you always have a bathouse to use if needed. randy

RE: Adding AC vents or opening ceiling vent

CecilT as long as you know where the duct runs, I don't see why you cant add another vent. In my TT I wanted to add a vent, I spent several days looking and thinking and thinking some more. I found the duct work in the ceiling and found where I could add it. I looked at hole saws and then round vents from Home depot. Found everything I needed to do this and then backed out of doing it. Decided to trade it. NOT for this reason just was at that point. NO need to do the work and then trade it in. BUT I think its very doable and would add AC to the main area or the bunk house area. The main thing careful planning with the right tools. This is why when we went to the 5er we got the 13.5 unit installed in our bedroom and it has been nice with NC/SC temps and humidity. ITs direct blow intot he bedroom but catches the bathroom also. I did not close off any of those vents do to the fact that during the night we turn the bedroom AC off and just run the main unit as needed. randy

OLCG May during Harley bike week?

I have camped OL during the summer, spring, fall and spring break weeks. BUT never during Harley bike week. Just wondering how this will be, I am good with the bikes and this crowd. BUT on the south side how crowded will it be, should we plan to not leave the CG or if we do, go to the north side of Myrtle, Cherry grove area. This will be our family's summer vacation as we try to beat the summer heat and higher camping rates. So just asking for/about information. I also know about OLCG biker policies. thanks, randy

RE: Big boss oil less fryer

I have the Charboil Oil-less fryer. I like it but have not used it in the last year. ITS big and bulky. BUT the big thing IS NO OIL to deal with. BUT it does cook a nice turkey breast, pork roast, pretty much anything that will fit down into the basket. I really would call it a gas oven. Thats basically what it does, its an oven, heat from the bottom and the sides, last few minutes you place a cover over it to crisp/brown the meat. Also cooks a good brisket too.. JMHO randy

RE: Distance traveled in a day

If you get 300 miles consider it a pretty good day and you will be feeling fine. Push to 400 and it stops being much fun. Just my 2 cents. :C I agree on this one.. As I have gotten older the ride seems to be harder. I get stiff and can barely get out og the truck to walk after 300 miles. So we stop around 150 relax and walk the puppies still can hard to walk. Plus I usually have to GO. I will stop half way on a 225 mile trip too. Buts that because we are now traveling with our kids and grandchild(they have their own camper) and he doesnt like that car seat much more than 1.5 hours unless he's sleeping. randy
