Fort Pillow SP, TN

Any one familiar with Fort Pillow SP, TN? Tried RVReviews with no luck. Pros and/or cons. Google revealed not much in the way of campground info, layout, facilities, amenities, etc. Camp out of a B, so size is not an issue. We're looking for an overnight (plus a night or two) on our way home to STL from the Gulfport area. Would this be worth a 2 or 3 day visit or just barely an over nighter? Thanks

RE: Help a newbie choose

Sportsmobile also offers a huge variety of floor plans that may help you with your design. They are also very good people to work with and will do as much or as little as you want. Their workmanship is unsurpassed, as is the quality of components. You could have them put in just the penthouse top, if that's an interest, the toilet and do the rest your self. Or any combination there of. Hope this helps.

RE: Anyone have problems parking their class B in their Driveway

That's why we opted for a Sportsmobile. Virtually stealth. HOA just smiles and says "Hmmm!" Into our second year and nary a rumble from neighbors or anyone. Also is used as our second vehicle, so it doesn't just sit until camping time.

RE: Grayton Beach State Park area

Not necessarily a restaurant, but a great food/eating experience unto itself. It seems to me that just east of the main courtyard (past the port office, central square) there is/was a GREAT deli on the land side of the highway, not the gulf side. Somewhere around goatfeathers east. It's name escapes me and is driving me crazy at this point, but they have all sorts of great deli & seafood. The smoked fish spread was very good as were the smoked pork chops. But the ultimate item was the smoked shrimp. To die for!!! Almost worth the trip from St. Louis for the shrimp alone.

RE: Camper Parking

We also have a converted van and feel no difference. Our conversion affected the height not the length. Going from a scooter to a full size van could pose a learning curve. Best practice before tackling a major metropolitan area. But consider where you live, where you want to go and the city size. New York City is a huge cry from Tampa. Besides if you have a camper/van, why got to the city? CAMP!!! Just my opinion.

RE: Along I 55 in Arkansas

55 isn't long in Arkansas before it gets to Memphis. Once you break through Memphis, Arkabutla Lake isn't very far off 55 and offers a couple of COE parks. Always nice for a night. We plan on hitting it on our way to New Orleans.

RE: Fried Eggs in Bread

My father called them "gashouse eggs" I have no idea where that name came from, and I've never heard it anywhere else. Doesn't matter what they're called, they're good! We were introduced to these by our neighbor as I was growing up and she called them "gashouse eggs". She was, even then, an elderly German lady married to an Italian man. No ides where she got the name from.

RE: What's your RV's Name???

We simply call our RV "da Van". but our gps is named Della, from the old Perry Mason TV show (his secretary). Or am I showing my age? (Della Street was her name!)

RE: Mistakes we don't want to repeat!

Mistake I won't make again? Telling my brother-in-law where and when I/we would be camping. Doesn't even bring his own food, and yet complains about what we feed him, as everything else about our choice of campsites or even campground.

RE: Destin, fl

It does become a busy, busy place that time of year. Miniature golf courses abound, as does surf shops. Best bring an extra credit card. Destin teems with activity. Topsail is convenient to the shops, etc and Henderson SP is also close by. Grayton beach is a bit more towards Panama City, but much quieter. But for ANY of these, best check for openings. They book up fast for that time period.

I'm looking for an EZ type canopy that is only 36" when closed and in the carrying/transporting/storing mode. (Have a specific spot in the B for it to fit) Hopefully opens to a 10X10 and, while being picky, is water proof/resistant. Anyone have any thoughts?

RE: Northern Kentucky lakes,where?

We were thinking a spending a day or so at Piney, LBL campground, on our return trip from Mississippi in early to mid April. Not having been there for years, would this time frame be a problem for a B Camper requiring elect only to find a decent spot?

RE: Forced to replan July trip. Help! Arkansas.

Petit Jean is awesome as is Magazine Mountain SP, AR. A little park just past Texarkana, Wright Patman Lake, is a terrific COE park that we really liked, but were in route to Dallas. We stayed at the Malden Lake area. Didn't do much in the way of the lake stuff, basically passing through on our way to Dallas, but the campground was one on the best. This was Oct, so maybe the timing was part of the reason it was so quiet and peacful.

RE: What experiences led you to be able to do RVing?

I wish to revise my earlier post about what prompted me to become a RVer. My reply was "A Tent". It should have been a wet, soggy, tent. And I don't mean the new nylon wonder fabric of today. I'm talking about the heavy, army surplus type tents. You know the ones with the 4x4's for uprights, a 2x6 for a cross member and enough stakes to keep John Henry busy for the better part of a day. Canvas that seemed a half inch thick and still seeped water during a good rain. The only saving grace was that it did not have a floor sewn in, otherwise you'd never be able to carry an eight man tent with less that a dozen men. My younger brother never got to experience these outings, as he had to stay at home. We didn't have room for him with all the poles, ropes, sledge hammers canvas and such. Yup! RV is the way to go!

RE: Houseboating

Did it for about 3 or 4 years, but many, many years ago. A clue as to how long it has been the houseboat for monday thru friday was $300.00. Had a hoot each and every time, but things have changed quite a bit I would suspect. I know the cost has increased, but there again the boats have gotten bigger. For us it was cheaper to rent the house boat than get a resort and rent a fishing boat.

RE: Class B: Driving on Parkways and Tolls

That's one of the biggest advantages to a Sportsmobile type, they are almost stealth as they say. Looks and acts like an ordinary van, until you stop and set up camp. Home Owner Associations don't bother us about our vehicle in the driveway one bit. It looks like a van. It is a van! Never had an issue with tolls, not even on ferries it is virtually considered a car. I truly believe the height plays a large part in it. Get the Sportsmobile with a penthouse top, rather than the turtle style top and you can hardly tell the difference from the exterior. Interior wise you can do what you want. These people are GREAT to work with and have a wonderful product.
