RE: Help with Class C

Check out the Phoenix Cruiser line. We liked what we saw. They just might have something you're looking for.

RE: Old style tarp/dining fly/awning set ups

We used to go camping with a cooler, fry pan, piece of canvas and rope. If space permitted maybe a lantern. That was our tent, fly and only shelter and sleeping quarters. AND it was canvas, not this plastic tarp stuff from Harbor Freight. A 10x12 foot piece took a good man to carry cause it weighed a ton. Tie between two trees and stake it out. Cook over the open fire (Everything from coffee to stew) and leave no trace when you leave. DOD always said, "Leave your campsite as clean or cleaner than when arrived." Thanks for the memories.

RV Insurance

First off I know nothing about RV insurance other than I need it. Thinking about buying a B+/C and want to be covered. As a current B owner, basically a van, our regular auto insurance covered all we needed. Now with all the plumbing, electric, slides and who knows what that needs to be covered, I'm lost. What do you insure? Where do you look for reputable companies? Do you bundle with you regular auto/home insurers? Roadside assistance? I really need help!

ontario provincial parks disability discounts

Being from the Mid West and planning a trip to the UP of Michigan we just have to go into Canada, via Sault Ste Marie and camp a couple of nights at least. Gotta add it to our map! I am a US Vet, 100% disabled. Realizing that this means nothing in Canada, but I am over 65 and have a handicap placard. Does Canada offer any discounts for non residents? Just wondering. thanks

RE: 1987 Lincoln Starfire 27 FT Motor Home

If I were in the market for an exaggerated B, or is it a C? I'd jump on that.

RE: Emerals Ash Borer

Not only is this bug destructive, we lost a gorgeous tree in front of our house, but is hitting the pocket book of every camper. With the ban on importing wood further than 50 miles, the price of campground fire wood has sky rocketed. Fire wood at campgrounds has risen to 50 cents to $1.00 a stick. Not a log! A stick! We use to cram every open nook & cranny with our home fire wood. No more. Now it's Dura-Flame logs in a neat little box. Not quite the camping experience, but provides the same ambiance (to a degree), and helps the conservation efforts so we all can enjoy the outdoors in the future.

B trade in/sell outright value

Thinking about getting rid of our Sportsmobile and want to find its value. Where is best place to get a price? I don't want to let it go for too little, nor do I want to ask too much and not have it move. Or might trade it in on our newer RV, but don't have a lot faith in RV dealer's facts. With Sportsmobile being a converter rather than a manufacturer it's hard to find anything close to compare prices. Appreciate any and all help/ideas.

RE: Rain in forecast not sure what to do

My dear Mother used to tell the DW & I to go camping because her garden needed the rain. Some things you just get use to. Don't like it, just get use to.

RE: Camping near I55 south of Memphis

Another vote for Hernando Point. But down 55 and not far off the highway are 3 other lakes, Sardis, Enid & Grenada. All with camping facilities. Just depends how far south you want to travel.

RE: Disabled Vets

Most Michigan parks also require an entrance/admission pass. Here's the breakdown: $11 - Michigan registered vehicles $5 - Michigan registered motorcycles $31 - Non-Michigan annual pass $9 - Non-Michigan daily pass But 100% disabled vets, with papers, can get a year pass free. So I'm told. Planning a trip there, but haven't experienced it yet. One Ohio SP said 100% camps free, another said no. Same for Kentucky. If you know of a site or spreadsheet available that list all states offering discounts for vets, please post it.

RE: Not even a newbie yet - but thinking of trying

I would not get a 33 ft for the first trip. Understandably you want to show her as much room as possible, but if you do plan to visit a local eatery or tour, that's a lot of coach to park on lots or town streets. You will enjoy it!

RE: Small trailer or van camper

Sportsmobile did our van according to our specs. Couldn't have asked for more. Better than great!!! We have a sofa that very easily opens to a double, very comfortable, bed with little or no effort. Microwave, porta-potty and the penthouse top. Simply the best! Love it! Check them out.

RE: Small trailer or van camper

We are B campers. Consider ourselves campers rather than RVers. Age is taking it's toll and we now are considering a B+/C. Although it doesn't come with a full time made up bed, the Phoenix Cruiser 2100 is the best thing we feel we can move up to. Shortest B+/C with a walk around bed (when made up). Many things to consider. We dearly love our B and many of the conveniences, mobility, lack of off site storage and ease of driving, but it might just be time to move on. B campers are special people!!!

RE: Visiting camgrounds

We always check in at the gate. If there's an entrance fee, that's fine if we're really interested in adding the park to our future itinerary, if just out of curiosity and cost more than a couple of bucks - probably not. We stopped at a park in Florida and because it was full the gate keeper said absolutely NO! If there's a day use fee don't expect them to just let you go in and have to spend the time/resources chasing you down in an hour or so if you don't return. Just doesn't add up.

RE: Expectations of a Newbie

We also currently have a B and am looking for a B+/C like the Phoenix Cruiser 2100. Age and ailments are a large part of the choice. The slide makes all the difference and the size is much larger than our B. No toad for us as we move about and tour to much. And that's another reason for the shorter length. But that's us.

RE: Hi Everyone - Newbie here....MORE questions :)

Many states offer discounts to disabled vets of one sort or another, but you have to ask. Many times it depends on the particular park. Last year we visited the Great Lakes area and stayed at East Harbor State Park, OH. Had no reservations and selected a walk up site. Now we don't need full hook-ups, just electric and are B campers, so our requirements are much different. But the lady asked of my disability and I replied 100%. She asked if I had my papers, DD-214 & letter of P&TD (Permanent & Total Disability) {I detest people who use acronyms that they know, but we might not}. She ask which campsite and how long. Then said that's free for you sir!!! Next stop on that trip was General Butler SP TN. Same thing. A free night. Michigan requires a park use/entrance fee for most State Parks. Non resident is $7, I think, a day or a $31 annual pass. 100% disabled vets it is free, so I'm told. Haven't tired it yet. Florida & Texas also offer free admit passes to vets. I'd like to find a chart/site that lists this info but haven't yet. Mght have to just compile one. Hope this helps.
