RE: Odd payload numbers on the 2017 F350 DRW vs. 2016 F350 DRW

There are some things I really like about the new Fords, like that the fuel tanks are going to be 66 gals. The increased height, not so much.

RE: In case you missed it, Camping World's IPO

Marcus did an interview with CNBC which was, interesting... All of the income from the IPO will be used to pay down debt. CW makes little off the sale of rvs. Instead they make their $$$ on extended warranties, insurance, services, etc.

RE: Yellowstone Last wk in May or 1st wk in June

I lived in the area for 5 years, one year we didn't get a light snow in late May or early June. At the same time it had been in the upper 70's just before. I really like that time of year, much of the game is still down in the valleys and basins, plus there are few "Turons". The Madison area is usually open by then.

RE: Carlisle HD Tire Review

We've been running them for over a year now, with about 12,000 on them. Zero issues in hot/cold/wet/dry. I check them before every day of driving, and on the road (quick look inspection then). A TPMS is nice, but it doesn't tell you about bald spots, nicks in the sidewall, bulges, etc. LOOK at your tires often. Yes, balancing is good.

RE: Coquihalla Highway (Highway 5) in late May

I have seen it snowing there that time of year, but it's really rare. Expect dry pavement with lots of grades (up & down)

RE: Worth stopping in Yellowstone Park at end of October?

Looks like there is about 6 inches of snow at Old Faithful this morning. I still see a few people out looking at the thermal features though.

RE: Camping World and Corporate America

About meatballs? Once the older generation dies off, the younger generation will then be the older generation. Unfortunately, then ..... the old generation will be complaining about the younger generation too! Just remember ... what goes around comes around! Unfortunately, all of us current old timers will be long dead and never get to see the pay-back! I am most positive my grand parents had serious issues with my parents generation, and my generation when my generation were just young kids too! I was paying attention "back when", the Greatest Generation was ah, complaining, about us Boomers. So now when us Boomers start complaining about X-Gen or Millenials, raising the same issues that were raised about us, I quietly laugh. ;)

RE: Lifetime updates for Garmin GPS

.. Dick, is the dezl 760LMT the same as the "RV 760LMT" ? They are the same "base" unit with differing "setup". The Dezl is aimed for commercial trucking and has "things" loaded that are aimed for that market. While the RV has campgrounds, etc built in

RE: Yellowstone/Teton National Parks

A lot also depends on your definition of "see the park". If all you are doing is parking at thermal features and view-points for 10 min, a day is about right. If you are getting out and walking (or hiking, or...) a week might not be enough time.

RE: Worth stopping in Yellowstone Park at end of October?

Can anyone tell me if there is any point in stopping at Yellowstone during the last week of October, first week of November on our way down to Arizona? Or is it too late in the year to see anything. From the Roads info page Roads closing: October 11: Dunraven Pass (Tower Fall to Canyon); Beartooth Pass (US 212 to Red Lodge, Montana) closed November 7: All roads except the road between the North Entrance and the Northeast entrance close at 8:00 am

RE: Towing a fifth wheel back from anchorage ak February

.... If you route home via the great plains you will travel in many days of winter weather. If you route home via Yukon,BC, and the west states you will have milder weather and lose winter sooner. Sounds like an adventure... Unfortunately the BC to Washington route gives lots more mountain passes. So it's a mixed thing.

RE: Towing a fifth wheel back from anchorage ak February

I'm curious, Sue, as to the temperatures you experienced on that 11 hour drive from Anchorage to home. . . Dale The average high in Yellowknife, in Feb, is about 25F, average low about 15F. There is about 8 hr of daylight in early Feb

RE: Towing a fifth wheel back from anchorage ak February

... and living in it while traveling? Doesn't sound like fun. Certainly not one campground will be open, your tanks and water lines could freeze (we are talking about lows to -40 or more). Be prepared to park, maybe for days, waiting for the roads to clear after a storm. On one hand commercial traffic travels that road year around. But they are used to this, have large fuel tanks, carry emergency gear, carry chains and use them. Both Alberta and BC (I'm not certain about the territories) would require you to carry (and use as needed) chains, maybe even drag chains on the trailer. Me, I grew up in that country and doubt I'd try it. But then I wouldn't try to stay in an RV in an Alaska winter either.

RE: Experiences with Space Craft?

Pyoung is correct, they make top notch rigs, but aim primarily at Carny and "special" (like "bunk" trailers). Personally I think the New Horizons aims more at the 'recreation' full-time crowd, while Spacecraft aims at the 'working' full-time crowd. Of course either will build you a great rig, designed the way you want it. Either also requires a substantial truck, ie maybe something more then even a '1-ton'

RE: Nash TT winterizing

As for how much....my 24-5N used a gallon, my 29-5E uses about a gallon and a half. For the 24-5N the low point drains where outside, under the kitchen sink, for the 29-5E they are in the basement under then bathroom sink.

RE: Firearm deposit at border?

Many of the gun-shops around Bellingham WA are used to offering this service.

RE: Dry camping for night at Victoria Coho ferry terminal

I'd call the BlackBall Lines and ask them. I haven't ridden the ferry regularly in years (I used to ride it weekly), back then the answer on Port Angles was nothing overnight. They did allow parking (no slides) at Victoria, but not PA There is an RV park very nearby (Peabody Creek)
