RE: Tucson area in the Spring

Justins Justins is FHU with miles and miles of adjacent hiking/biking trails. Can't go wrong. Monsoon season is in the summer.

RE: Roadmaster inc.

We have also dealt with Roadmaster and been very impressed with the company and the way they stand behind their products.

RE: Avoid Tip O'Neal tunnel

Take I-95/Route 128. Driving through Boston is such a pain. X2. Regardless of restrictions it's not a fun time. 95/128 will get you where you need to go easier. When are you going? Rt. 128 will be closed 11/4-11/6 as they will be tearing down a bridge. x 3 128 only adds about 15 minutes to the drive.

RE: Big Bend Roads

As mentioned, no problems with towing. We have been there 6 times, always stay in Study Butte. Love it there- We have been in Oct several times- perfect weather, not crazy busy.

RE: Etiquette in Camping

A strategically placed clothes line might help. Or a picnic table etc, anything to block the easy pathway. Gets on my nerves when people walk right outside my door.

RE: storing glassware

we put our glass wine glasses in two places- the Waterford hang from a wine glass rack with rubber stoppers keeping them from clanking against each other, the cheap glass ones go in a box, each in their own sock.

RE: Full-timing it with teenagers?? Are we crazy?

Look at this blog- they fulltimed with 6 kids for quite a while. I am sure she wouldn't mind if you wanted to reach out. http://coach-and-six.blogspot.com I don't think you are crazy at all. Kids need stability? They have that if you give them the time and attention they need. Actually easier to do that if you are traveling as a family- let them have significant input on destinations etc. To hedge, you could put SOME of your household goods in storage- we did that, and kept everything for 7 years, at which time we decided to build a new house ( NOT in the same state we were in before). Time with our kids is so short- if it feels right for your family- DO IT. In our case our kids were full grown, so it wasn't a consideratiion.

RE: Feeling sick since first day RVing

Dehydration also causes the symptoms you mention, especially since you mention sweating. Make sure uou drink enough water to rule it out.

RE: Driving - Day or Night

Only driven at night once, and hated it. SS is still many years away. I think its not the driving, so much as the parking. Not fun. We travel to enjoy, not to be stressed.

RE: Any special way to make a reservation at Desert Trails?

Yeah, I do have a call into them as well. But given our decision to bounce around this year, I likely won t book anything if/when they call back. I do like their location, though, and will definitely be one we look into when we get into the Tucson area. It may be minor to others, but the fact that they don't have picnic tables is a significant negative for us. From what I'm learning from my web research, this appears to be common in the snowbird parks. True? I wouldn't call Justins a snowbird park per se but come to think of it, many RV parks (vs campgrounds) don't have picnic tables. We never use them so are happier to have extra room. Justins is laid back, with miles of adjacent hiking trails if you like to walk (desert trails has the access too). Personally I don't think you'll regret your decision to wander around this first year. You can check out Tucson, Casa Grande, Mesa area, Havasu, borrego Springs, And even wander into the Palm Springs area of CA if you want :) LOTS of places to see!

RE: 2016 Mobile Suite 38 RSSA Queen vs King Bed

Adding to that, I would think that the aforementioned night stands would prohibit the insertion of a king mattress. We have a queen, and there is no way we could fit a king in there after the fact. If you are ordering one, you can specify which size bed you want. The only thing maybe you could do would be to remove the night stand if you really need a King. We tested out queens (think motels and visiting relatives) before we decided that it would work just fine for us.

RE: Any special way to make a reservation at Desert Trails?

Well, after much hunting and clicking, I think it might be best for us to go back to 'plan A', which was to take three months to sample the entire area from Big Bend to Vegas, no reservations anywhere, spending a week or two at a few places of particular interest. Then, if we find an area and park we really like, consider spending the winter in 2018 or 19. I'm thinking we should be able to find places 'on the fly', although they might not always be the best available. Life is, after all, an adventure! Again, thanks for your suggestions. If you happen to see a big fiver and a red truck with Indiana plates, be sure to wave. Sounds like a very good plan. Yep, excellent plan! We always find someplace to stay in AZ every winter, with either no reservations or very few :) Maybe head to Quartzsite in Jan for the RV show. Park in the desert with a bunch of RVers. A total blast :) And PS Big Bend is one of my favorite places- been there 6 times!

RE: Camp ground laundries

We have been fulltiming going on 6 years. Have not had a bad experience. Ditto. And could have had washer and dryer in rig (still could I guess) but choose not to. I would rather get it all done in 2 hours and then wait 10 days to do it again.

RE: Campsite in west Los Angeles

There is also Balboa RV in Van Nuys. Don't know anything about it. Our daughter lives in LA. When she was on the west side we always stayed at Dockweiler, now she has moved north, we stay at the Elks. There are several of those around if you are a member. The Simi Valley one is really good.

RE: Anyone been to Tallulah Gorge SP in Ga?

we didn't stay at the state park when we were there, but we did walk it, and I remember thinking that we could have fit in quite a few sites. When in doubt, call them but I remember seeing some decent size pull thrus. Here's the link to my blog posts about the gorge... Tallulah Gorge Actually, here's a website that has pictures of all the sites in the state park campsitephotos.com

RE: which TC is best for me?

We camp with a Lance 1181 on our F450 dually and take it off-road pretty often. We bought the TC to do Alaska and it was perfect for that. We take the TC MANY places that we wouldn't dreamof taking our 5th wheel. But I agree, in general, unless its a really small TC, dually is the way to go, stability wise. PS we wouldn't have taken any of our vehicles on the racetrack whne we were there. We heard it really chews up tires.
