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.

RE: Pros/cons of class B and P/U slide in?

Our Sportsmobile conversion van sits in our drive way and is our second vehicle. Home Owners Assn says nothing. It's a van. A truck camper would have all the natives forming a lynch mob. Just food for thought.

RE: What do you do about dirty clothes?

I find it hard to believe that no one else has commented on the Drumi as posted earlier. Just imagine a tent with a washing machine boon docking it. I find it hilarious. Why not. What's next?

RE: National Dutch Oven Gathering: Past, Present & Future events

Much to my chagrin we cancelled out last week due to the DW's health issue other wise we'd be there now. Drats! But thanks for the updates and the future list.

RE: Treaters ptg or gag Dave Crocket

SAR Tracker: good deciphering! I have the RecTec Mini 300, but only use it at home, not on the road. Everything about it is first class: quality, construction, customer service and reliability.

RE: Michigan's Lake Michigan Coast parks

Thanks for all the excellent tips. I didn't mean we don't like Corp or federal parks. We really do. What I meant is that we're not fond of commercial/private RV parks. Thanks for the info.

RE: Michigan's Lake Michigan Coast parks

To answer some of your questions: we have an E series Ford Econoline van with a Sportsmobile conversion with minimal conveniences, other than the micro wave (DW insisted on that one). We consider ourselves campers rather than RVer's. And by that I mean we spend minimal time inside the van, basically only to sleep. We do most everything else outside. Enjoy cooking outside, be it over the open fire, a dutch oven or electric griddle. Not fond of RV parks that look like an RV dealers lot. No disrespect, just not our thing. We enjoy being outside and having a little privacy. Our interests range from enjoying the scenery, beach walks, waterfalls and nature in general. Unique shops, especially of the food variety as well as history related themes. Hope this helps.

Michigan's Lake Michigan Coast parks

What are the better state parks along Michigan's Lake Michigan's coast to stay at, visit and/or see. Leaving from St Louis in early Sept, toward Sault Ste Marie and planning on spending several days in doing so. Would like to make two stays of a couple of days each before heading for the next stop. If a particular stop is very interesting or unique, a day or two can easily be added. Oh yeah, B campers and only require electric, flush facilities with showers preferred.

RE: Class C under 30 ft. with gas engine

Look at the Phoenix Cruiser line of RVs.

RE: Public Storage

Thanks for all the input. tpi, that was sort of my thoughts also. Seems as though this upgrade from a B to a B+ is going to be costly! Upgrade vehicle cost, storage cost, and more than likely an additional/rplacement vehicle, as the B was our second vehicle. thanks

RE: Niagra Falls Campgrounds

We're on the Four Mile Creek band wagon. Really enjoyed our visit last year. DW is ready to do it again.

Public Storage

Do you store your RV in a public/commercial facility when not in use? We're thinking about upgrading to a B+/C, but the dear Home Owners Assn. won't let us store it on our property. Do many of you use public/commercial facilities? What's to look for and what to avoid. I know price and proximity are key factors. What's the expected price range per month/year. Where do I start.

RE: Leaving outside camper lights on?

We generally don't even turn the lights on when we're outside. Firelight does wonders once your eyes adjust. And that's why flashlights were invented. It's sort of a "enjoying nature thing". Your know, that's why we go camping. To soak up the tranquility, not shielding our eyes from imposing glares. IMHO

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Got a latex foam mattress for the B and put it in today. Starting to get things together for our summer trip (northern GA, NC, VA, OH (incliding the NDOG), IN and then back home) in a week. A bit early to pack, by we're anxious.

RE: Florida state parks

I'm a veteran of all 4 parks. Grayton Beach (FHU loop) and St Andrews would be my first choices. Fla-gypsy has it again. Can't agree more. But better have reservations. Both these parks are always packed. But very, very nice if you can get in.

RE: Suggestions for a Good Mosquito repellant?

We bought this for years in Mexico and used it in the Mayan Peninsula jungles. It is finally available in the US. Great stuff! http://www.amazon.com/AUTAN-FAMILY-INSECT-REPELLENT-STICK/dp/B000PTKLCI Can't thank you enough. Placed our order as we are headed to the UP of Michigan in Sept. If we get eaten alive by bugs, I will hunt you down. But seriously, thanks for the timely info.
