RE: Antenna

Which antenna? It really does matter. If you mean the Winegard "bat wing" the parts are available at most RV parts stores, including Camping World

RE: A question about tires on three axle fifth whl trailers.

ST tires have more side-wall strength then LT, just for the twisting action you get with turning a 3-axle trailer

RE: Transfer of Federal Lands to the States

Many of the western states want the land because of the value of the minerals. Plus there is a widespread anti-fed sentiment in the west. ... Very little BLM or National Forest land, with profitable deposits doesn't already have a mineral claim on it. Most of the highly profitable ones were actually claimed in the 1800s, and certainly many of them mined out now. I suspect mining companies would rather deal with one entity (US) then a dozen state governments.

RE: Transfer of Federal Lands to the States

Actually some (quite some now) years ago the Fed offered to transfer a bunch of (mostly) BLM land to the states. The states largely turned them down. The cost to administer the land exceeded the income they might generate from that land. The costs to administer has always been the sticking point to land transfers. States have not wanted the costs associated with having the land (road maintenance, etc) for the marginal income it produces (timber sales, grazing fees, etc) There has also been a certainly amount of "trading" where the Fed traded land with various entities, that is both government and private, to allow both to have consolidated holdings, vrs the broken-up blocks that resulted from rail-road right-of-ways (back in the 1800's a rail-road got land on either side of a new track they laid)

RE: Yelm, WA camp spots

None in Yelm, but quite a number in the Lacy, Nisqually and Dupot area.

RE: Bear Tooth Highway

It's an amazing drive but we left the 5er at camp and took the truck. In my book not only would it be stressful and foolish to tow but you'd have no ability to get out and enjoy the stunning vistas. Leave the 5er and drive it-you won't regret it. what he said

RE: Which 5th Wheel for Full Timeing

Read this Kansas RV center You do know the "private firm" that -was- building rigs for them was Peterson Industries (Excel), when they closed, NuWa once more can't get new rigs. I understand they "hope" to find a way to get/build new rigs, somehow.

RE: Washington State campground fees

Just saw a news article on funding of Washington SP. State funding has gone down 91% since 2007, with user fees going up 117% in the same period. The two budget proposals currently being pushed calls for either an increase in funding, or another large cut. The state parks commission says the cut will result in more layoffs and further increases in users fees

RE: Which 5th Wheel for Full Timeing

Obviously most will recommend the rig they own... But how deep are your pockets? If you are looking new only, I would first recommend New Horizons. But they -start- at $100,000. I've seen units that run over $300,000. Plus you need a real truck, even a "one-ton" will not cut it. I'd also recommend DRV and NuWa (there are still a few new NuWa's). Used I'd add in Excel by Peterson and a few others. But on your list I would (only) recommend Arctic Fox (what I own of course)

RE: Strange emergency vehicle lights, can you ID?

The plates are called "confidential". They are regular "plates", only issued to various agencies. Given the parade, it's my guess they were a DEA undercover unit

RE: Adding Canadian service to Verizon plan - any experience???

My old job required us to work on both sides. Several of my (former) co-workers bought "Canadian" SIM cards and would just swap SIMs No I don't recall phone models or which company

RE: Washington State campground fees

I have just the opposite opinion - I don't think there is a private CG in the state that can compare to most of our state CG's. Especially considering how tightly the private places jamb them in. Certainly mostly correct, compare Mary Hill SP vrs the Peach Beach (right next door) Mary Hill is like camping in a city park, with a great deal of room between rigs. Peach Beach, well, you better like your neighbor. I have family in Goldendale, as a result I've stayed in every park nearby. The two SP's are my preferred location.

RE: Washington State campground fees

A little background on the "non-resident fee" Washington added that when Oregon started charging a non-resident fee, originally it was -only- charged on Oregon residents, then on the resident of any state charging a non-resident fee.

RE: artic fox trailors

.. When we first started looking I thought the model numbers were close to the length. Not true, I would download their brochure first, to make sure I was looking at the right model number for the length I was interested in. And most dealers don't have all the models on their lot at one time. http://www.northwoodmfg.com/images/rsync/brochures/Arctic_Fox_Brochure.pdf I've never figured out the "length" model numbers At one time they built a 26-5C model that was LONGER then the 27-5L they made. Also, the new model "numbers" (Nash, Fox Mountain, etc) reflect "square foot", not length.

RE: artic fox trailors

Some general notes: Previous to 2012, Nash and Arctic Fox where built to the same floor-plan and general specs. However some years Nash's used cheaper cabinetry and metal siding. In that period they also build Nash 5th Wheels. When Fleetwood went brankrupt, Ron Nash (and his partners at Northwoods) bought the Fleetwood factory in LaGrande and started Outdoors RV. The core of the workforce at Outdoors came over from Northwoods, they are build similarly to Northwoods (Nash, Arctic Fox, SnowBird, Desert Fox, Fox Mountain, etc). I would consider both Outdoors and Northwoods products "above average".

RE: artic fox trailors

AF trailers built between 2011-2015 with the dark grey caps are having fade problems. Big stink over on the AF forum. Northwood is having no part in helping owners with cap fade. Northwood has since changed cap makers and went to a lighter grey cap. Time will tell with the new caps. Too bad because everything else about them is solid. No 2011 models were built with a grey cap Early production 2012 models also lacked the grey cap (we own one) Later production 2012 models have the grey cap, also improved cargo doors, improved waste dumping, etc. I would not reject a rig based solely of color fading.

RE: Flooded trailer

Hard lesson learned but a good reason to leave the grey tank open. Hope the insurance company comes through for you. I know I would be sick if this happened. I would not leave my gray tank open due to this mishap. Bad things can also happen by leaving the tanks exposed to the CG sewer..... For example? I'd love to hear at least one real reason.
