RE: WA to MD in JAN!!! Help!!

Not sure if this works in all states, but at least in the western ones, each one has a 511 number that gives you road conditions (you can choose which routes to ask about). Wishing you the best of luck. As mentioned, be prepared to hole up for a while due to weather. Also be aware that a lot of campgrounds across the northern tier close for the winter; others will be open but have limited services.

RE: Camp host right or wrong?

If the OP left his tag on the site, then the usurper is to blame as well. When you remove someone else's tag to put yours up, you usually look at the old one - at least we do. If the dates are the same as the one you are coming in on, wouldn't you check?

RE: Our New Adventure

Very nice - both the rig and the location! Enjoy; wishing you many more years of wonderful adventures. It's a great way to see the country!

RE: Problem with Forest River Water Tank mount

On the other hand, we had a Forest River (Flagstaff) trailer for 6 years, lots of heavy use, no issue whatsoever with the water tank. So far, so good with our current Rockwood (after 3 full seasons of use).

RE: Aliner copycats

Any opinions - based on experience - as to which brand is best at it? To my knowledge, there's only one of the brands that offers a squarish "bump-out" on one side (usually over the kitchen end). We're a little curious about them, perhaps to use as a 2nd, smaller camper in state & national parks. I'd love another popup, but they're a pain in bear country.

RE: driving uphill on gravel driveway

Just don't stop until you reach the top.

RE: My Carotid Artery Surgery

Wishing you all the best, and a speedy recovery! Sounds like the device is a good idea.

RE: Lexington, KY

x3 on the Horse Park. Decent sites, not too tight. They do not offer full hookups, though - electric & water only.

RE: Kentucky

Sounds nice! That's a good area to camp, with lots to see & do. When we were there, we stayed at KY Horse Park. (Great if you love horses.) :) Did you post a review on rvparkreviews, by chance? A lot of us use that site for CG recommendations.

RE: Newbie -- Considering Hybrid Purchase

What Dutchmen Sport said! Solid advice. We too went thru the PUP to HTT to TT transition; enjoyed the HTT, had it 3 years (after 17 years with our PUP) and then fell in love with the fully enclosed trailer a little sooner than planned. :) We did have to keep upgrading our tow vehicle, though, to keep up with the ever-larger camper - something else to keep in mind. If you are towing with a small to medium-size SUV, you may find the HTT is just a bit much for it, mostly due to the wind resistance from the taller camper. It's a significant difference from pulling a popup.

RE: Omaha NE to Colorado Springs

Depends on what you've seen and what your interests are. The pioneer exhibit in the overpass near Kearney is pretty neat. Ft. Kearney State Historic Park is too. Not sure if the nearby state park (same name) is still open for camping, though.

RE: Need advice on this winterization detail

Great! Thanks! (You're right, no gray tank flush system - yet!) :)

RE: Need advice on this winterization detail

Re: the black tank flush - will putting some pink stuff down in the black tank accomplish this purpose, or should something else be done as well? And wouldn't the gray tank flush have the same situation?

RE: Is there any campground like Tom Sawyer farther North?

Another plug for COE CGs. Thomson Causeway near Galena, IL is one such, with a few sites (electric hookups only) along the river. There are a couple of county parks on the Iowa side near Dubuque that have riverside sites too, again with electric hookups. We stayed at one (name escapes me); it was a little seedy, IMO, but the view was nice.

RE: Didn't want to hIjack.

I first learned about that indicator a couple years ago, and it's very handy when driving a rental car. Interesting that there are several models out there that break the rule, though!

RE: Too Many Choices For Newcomer

Tundras do have a low payload capacity for 1/2 tons. We towed a 34' trailer with a 7600-lb GVWR with ours, and I wouldn't have wanted to go any heavier (or longer). You could use that as a sort of guideline for max tow capacity if you like. (We have since downsized; current TT is 27' with a 6500-lb GVWR - much better match for our truck.)

RE: Rapid City, SD heading west to N.California

The pioneer museum in Montpelier, ID (southeast corner). Some fun participatory exhibits (you can ride in a covered wagon, jolts & all)which help illustrate the settling of the west. Nice KOA near there as well, and not too far from Bear Lake, where the family can get a swim.
