RE: Planning 1st Trip to Yellowstone: Getting there question

From Minnesota, yes, I can see the South Entrance being too far out of the way. But where I live in IL, I can drive straight west on 80 to the S. entrance or drive north a bit and take 90 west. Appreciate the info on 16 vs. 14. Anyone from IL out there that has went this way west? Do you drive it in 3 days, 4, ??? I believe the advice others have given you to take hwy 16 is based on your statement that you would be staying at the Devil’s Tower KOA. If you’re just wanting to drive to Yellowstone from IL then yes I would enter through the south entrance. I would even consider spending a couple of days at the Colter Bay campground before continuing on to Yellowstone. We live in MO and take I-70 to Kansas City and then a northern route to I-80. We continue on I-80 to Rawlins, WY and then connect with hwy 287 and head north to hwy 26 up to the Grand Teton NP entrance. Of course this route isn’t going to get you anywhere near Devil’s Tower. If you take the I-90 route you will be closer to Mount Rushmore and Devil’s Tower. You could always take the I-90 route going and then come home via the I-80 route. Right on, Devils tower is right off of 90 , like I said I just did the trip last week. So I have a good feel for where it is.

RE: Planning 1st Trip to Yellowstone: Getting there question

Just made this same trip last week, South entrance is way out of the way just take I90 to 16 and then 14 into the park. Great stop is Cody and the Buffalo Bill Museum. Fishing bridge was much better than I thought is would be. We stayed there 5 nights. The best idea for seeing Yellowstone in to stay two places to cut the daily driving distances. This time we saw the most Buffalo between Fishing Bridge and Canyon.

RE: Re: Yellowstone campsites rated 30' or less

have you no toad? seems like a lot of time wasted in setup/take down/move/repeat 6 times. bumpy Good point we have been there 3 times in the last 4 years, I would camp Tetons, Fishing Bridge and West

RE: Re: Yellowstone campsites rated 30' or less

RE: Good Sam ESP--A rip off

These tow items are common maintance items for a MH. I would not have paid them either

RE: Getting Diesel at service station or truck stop?

Another big advantage, is that the diesel will be fresh as they go through so much daily, once in Texas I used a small station and got water in the fuel - what a pain

RE: DEF at bulk pumps

As a retired accountant I find it strange that so much focus is on the cost of DEF In the past 3143 miles I have spent just over $60 for 4 2 1/2 gal containers. This is just under 2 cents a mile I will focus on getting better mileage not on my DEF use

RE: How much hassle to hook up a car dolly?

Time is one thing but kneeling or laying down in the wet or snow to tie down the wheels, is what I saw as a huge drawback 4 down for me now

RE: Ratings of Parks

It's all about the money. The park pays enough. they get a high rating. The bad reviews are deleted, and all "looks" good. Not true at all -

RE: Winnebago rolls again?

Try booking a campground on short notice. Fishing Bridge at Yellowstone is already booked through next year for 30'-40' rigs. Keep trying their website, I got a 40 ft site for this week for 5 days only 10 days ago.

Why so negative OP, yes the economy is better and MH are selling like hot cakes. What is wrong with that

RE: Another residential frig question

As Bill says, the size is of importance to some people. The largest DPs have fridges the size found in many homes or larger. But the down side to some, is that you have to have them plugged into electrical power, enough battery power and inverter power to run them during the driving day, or have an auto start generator that will start to recharge the batteries on board. My truck camper has a three way fridge in it, propane, 12 volt or 120 volt. Down side is it is slow to cool, and small but I don't have much room in my TC anyways. Our 5th wheel has a two way, propane and 120 volt fridge. It is a bit larger by about 2 cubic feet, but has the same drawbacks of being slower to cool. The residential style fridges cool quickly as they have a compressor which the propane ones don't have, being they are absorption types. If a person plans to live in their rig or mainly camp in full hook up sites in campgrounds, the residential ones work very well. For boondocking, if you don't mind your diesel generator running at different times of the day and night to power your fridge, then they work as well for that. I have been running RVs for 50 years now and have never had a fire in a fridge unit and all of mine have been the multi fuel source, gas or electric. So I wouldn't be the least concerned with a fire. But as with any use of propane or NG, you have to check for leaks on a regular basis, especially if you get a smell of the gas in or around your rig. Not saying a fire couldn't happen, but as a former fire fighter and arson investigator, I have never had to deal with a fire in an RV fridge. It tends to be easier to get a residential fridge repaired, it seems. Many times when one of the RV multi fuel source fridges goes bad, it just gets replace at a high cost. "I have been running RVs for 50 years" I didn't think rv's were around 50 years ago Winnebago started making motor homes in 1966 (48 years) and travel trailers about 1960 (54 years)

RE: Tough decision - Stressed out

If you use your RV 21 nights per year, your cost per night is somewhere in the neighborhood of $300-$400/night. What were you thinking when you bought this rig knowing you can only use it a few weeks out of each year? I vote SELL it to a private party and stay in a luxury resort with all meals included and a free massage for less money. This makes sense to me. Lots of state campgrounds also have cabins for rent. In your situation this makes more sense. Put your rig on craigslist and/or the newspaper. You can get more than 8K for it. X3 Unless you are super rich the MH was a really bad idea.
