RE: Compact Truckcamper

How many slide-outs?

RE: Zion Cyn closed above the lodge by rockslide

A question for folks who know Zion well -- is that the Temple of Sinawava in the background?

RE: Suggestions please..new to this!

Valerie, if you are looking for a small trailer (not a truck camper), you can get away with a significantly smaller truck - like a Tacoma instead of a Tundra. Let us know more about your needs and wishes -- with so many of us waiting anxiously to give you our two cents worth, you'll be able to buy an Airstream Bambi! ;)

RE: Best Northern California Spot with 40ft 5th

WackAway, here is a link to our blog entry about the east side of Sonora Pass, off 108 -- not a good place for a big rig, but there are lots of day trips and hikes available, even if you are camped on the west side of the pass: Sonora Pass area

RE: Best Northern California Spot with 40ft 5th

Not sure where the one on the west is. On the east, it's near Leavitt Meadows. If you look on google images for "sonora pass 26 percent grade sign," you will see what I mean.

RE: MH or TC - Which is better to get into the Boonies?

Thanks! We will just have to make the trek to the Tahoe area -- about ten hours towing the trailer.

RE: Suggestions please..new to this!

Valerie, welcome to the forums! I am hoping the moderator moves this over to the Truck Camper forum -- this is the trailer group. First, have you checked Craigslist? There are some great bargains to be had. If you are not experienced, be sure to have someone knowledgeable check your camper thoroughly before you buy it. It is possible to live off-grid most of the time out west, but it is not easy, especially if you are not yet an expert in boondocking (which is what we call it -- the rangers call it dispersed camping). There is a separate boondocking forum here, which focuses on tips and tricks. One more question: are you "handy" with tools and repairs? If not, this may not be a great fit for you -- all RVs involve a fair amount of routine maintenance, more than an ordinary house does. (That's mostly because the camper is subjected to a violent earthquake every day -- the road!) Hang in there, good luck, and ask lots of questions!

RE: Best Northern California Spot with 40ft 5th

I'm sure you know this, but do not take a big rig past the "no big rig" signs on 108. I have seen stuck rigs on that road, and the traffic ticket is a very big number.

RE: MH or TC - Which is better to get into the Boonies?

Scary picture! Without giving away any secrets, where do you find roads that are both open and covered in deep snow? Throughout most of the Calif. national forest system, the rangers close the roads with locked gates when the snow starts to fly in earnest (more than just flurries). We really wanted to do some snow camping this winter but were locked out in the earlier part of the season. Then, of course, the atmospheric rivers have arrived, coating the mountains in deep cement -- too thick for my limited skills!! (And more on the way, or so I am told.)

Good Lance commercial video about boondocking

I don't own a Lance -- but I wandered over to their site to see what's new and got trapped by their commercial video. Go to this link and click on "watch the full video:" Lance commercial -- two minutes long The music is kind of schmaltzy, and there is a lot of footage of dirt bikes (which did not really interest me) -- but the video captures the feeling of boondocking pretty well. It looks to me like most of it was shot in California, probably because that's where Lance is located.

RE: MH or TC - Which is better to get into the Boonies?

jefe, here is the key in what you just wrote: "the operational savvy of the driver will get 2WD-ers just as far as a dummy driving a 4WD." I'm the dummy! I'm learning, slowly. Your experience is vast, but mine is only half-vast. (Say that last sentence out loud to get the full meaning.) I haven't gotten seriously stuck, at least not yet. But (to paraphrase Donald Rumsfeld) the problem is that sometimes I don't know what I don't know. They say that good judgment comes from experience, and experience comes from bad judgment.

Zion Cyn closed above the lodge by rockslide

Article I'm sure they will clear it up in short order, but be advised -- this will be a hassle on a holiday weekend.

RE: Front Kitchen in TT - Pros and Cons

It depends -- we have seen front kitchens on trailers like the R-Pod and the Chalet Takena that had very limited headroom due to the curvature of the roofline.

RE: Stayed Home Last Summer and did Nuttin..... Round #2

Speechless. The only thing I can say is this -- do you know how lucky you are to be able to keep up with Pat? (I bet you do.) I wish you many more years of adventuring together!!

RE: Creature Comforts Advice Wanted

Of all the features on our trailer (which are not many, since it is so small), I would have to say that the shower is the key to the whole thing for us. Having a hot shower in the middle of a howling wilderness, and going to bed really clean every night, is absurdly luxurious. Yes, the shower is cramped. Yes, we take extreme Navy showers. But we often say it's like a talking dog -- the miracle is not how well he talks, but that he talks at all. If we did not have a shower, we certainly would not boodock or dry camp, and we probably never would have gotten into RVing at all.

RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

Thanks for the tips! I wonder why they use quotes when I "inspect" the coding?
profdant139 01/14/17 06:59pm Forum Technical Support
RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

Interesting! The width command did alter the image – the height command did not. Does that mean that the "height" code has no effect? Once again, here is the original photo, no added code: http://i.imgur.com/WPei4AXl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image. Now, here it is again, but this time I have added “height=300” (just like that, with quotation marks), right after the first .jpg, separated by one space. Recall that last time, I used height at 400, which had no appreciable effect: http://i.imgur.com/WPei4AXl.jpg “height=300” "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

So now I am going to fool around with the coding to see if I can alter the width or the height or both. First, this photo is posted per 1492’s app, with no change to the code: http://i.imgur.com/WPei4AXl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image. Second, here is the same picture, but I have added “width=400” (just like that, with quotation marks), right after the first .jpg, separated by one space: http://i.imgur.com/WPei4AXl.jpg “width=400” "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image. Third, here is the same picture, but this time I have added “height=400” (just like that, with quotation marks), right after the first .jpg, separated by one space: http://i.imgur.com/WPei4AXl.jpg “height=400” "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image. Let’s see what happens . . . .

RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

Tiger, I right clicked and chose inspect. The good news is that the code pops up on the right side of my screen. The bad news is that I can't make heads or tails of how to use that info. Still working on this issue . . . .

RE: Limit width of photos so text does not run off page?

Yes, Roy, we are talking about the way to use 1492's "user-friendly" picture posting application, which is available at: Kudos to 1492 Give it a try – it's really easy. And, Ichabod, I tried clicking on your post, but nothing happened. I'm trying to figure out exactly where to put the width code, when using 1492's photo posting app, so that the text doesn't run on and on and on off to the right. Dutchmen, I will give that a try – not sure if it works with 1492’s app.
