RE: texas hill country

Spent a few days at a friend's property in Pipe Creek last week and she said it's considered hill country. We were 37 miles west of San Antonio and it was beautiful!

RE: GM Certified Pre Owned 2016

Hopefully it beats Toyota certified. We bought a "certified" Tacoma from a major dealer and straight off the lot it needed a new radio and a week later two new catalytic converters. When we were arguing over who pays and how this 100 point certification never included things like turning on the radio they took me in a back room and admitted they buy these vehicles at auctions from lenders and just wash them and put them up for sale. They really depend on the low milage and the quality of the build of the vehicle to turn the profit. It may be different now but then there was no actual standard as to what "certified" means and it's all marketing. That said, a truck with 20k is a lease return, most likely had all its maintenance done at a dealer on schedule and is a safe buy.

RE: Route 10 Louisiana.....how bad is it?

We just went East on 10 from San Antonio to New Orleans and gotta say inside Texas it's pretty smooth. With in 5 miles of the border it's very torn up on both sides and Louisiana part of 10 is all old sectioned concrete which feels like driving on washboard. Just have to find a speed that works for your wheel base and suspension. Imagine West bound will be the same conditions.

RE: Pull Through or Back in sites? Which do you prefer.

No preference other than they have enough room for the required maneuver. I do agree back in's tend to be wider and more room for patio activities.

RE: Carlsbad - Fort Worth

Was just there and do not recommend the 285 in any way. We did not drive on the 62 but there is no way it is possibly worse than the 285.

RE: Large Helium balloon for locating RV when riding

Back in the days at Glamis we'd use a blow up doll of the adult nature filled with helium... No one ever missed our camp.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

I wouldstop paying HOA Dues until parking is enforced and you get what you are paying for, access to your own driveway.

Hwy 285 between Carlsbad, NM and Fort Stockton, TX

Had the unfortunate displeasure of traveling this road today and want to caution others to avoid it AT ALL COSTS. Of the 120 miles between the two cities there is 60 miles of road construction. There are no curbs or emergency lanes, no center divider just a small stripe, lane shifts constantly, always people trying to pass into on coming traffic. If heading north to Carlsbad you will be in a 7 mile long backup because of a single stop sign in a intersection that all I can describe it as is a pit, the thousands of oil field workers and thousands of big rigs bringing pipe in didn't help either. Heading south was not too bad but I really could of used a off road desert racing truck for the road. I can not believe we didn't have a blow out on the trailer. I do not know their schedule but the magnitude of what they are doing I do not recommend traveling 285 to or from Carlsbad for all of 2019. There is no way this route will be fixed this year.

RE: Building New Campground. Opinions Welcome!

We just stayed at a KOA that had smoked BBQ being cooked to order all day long and into the evening. We just called the front desk, put our order in which simply got added to our bill for the RV and they brought us our food on a golf cart which they also use to guide you to your spot. If your handy in the kitchen or behind the grill consider that for extra $$$.

RE: Most Efficient .5 Ton While Towing

I just look at the money saved while towing is that much more ammo I can buy. You saved money vs. what?..... There is no savings to be had other than not towing at all. If you tow a RV trailer fuel cost will be substantial no matter how you rationalize it. This is true it is substantial. On this trip we are on right now I budgeted $2,500 for diesel and will save over $550 on fuel driving my truck vs one of these listed. That money when I get back home is going to fund a hobby. I agree not RVing is the answer if you want to save. I do want to save too but don't mind spending what I have too to see America. If I don't have to spend all of it great!

RE: Most Efficient .5 Ton While Towing

...As mentioned Trailer Life magazine averaged 14.77 mpg useing the 3.0 diesel with a similar trailer & weight but I’ll bet at 65. My Ram ED (tuned) would have averaged in the 15s with that trailer/weight but at 65. Fuelie is a good overall comparison source. Not sure what I would have lost to dragging it at 70. The difference between 70mph and 65mph is 9% less efficiency. While it will save you 32 minutes over a 500 mile drive it will cost -1.2mpg.

RE: Most Efficient .5 Ton While Towing

Leaving on a three week cross country trip tomorrow and plan to fill tank to the second automatic shut off every time and hand calculate using GPS milage. Will not post results but should be pretty accurate.

RE: Don't bend your flimsy steel truck bed

That's going to last about 3 seconds off road before the 4xs punch through the bottom of the camper. Need to build a proper elevated floor or better yet get a TC designed for the cab height.

RE: Most Efficient .5 Ton While Towing

Don't need to watch it, I bet it's the one with the largest motor.

RE: Should I make reservations or wing it?

We always reserve 500-600 miles out per day 2-3 weeks in advance. only time we don't reserve are places like cracker barrel or where you don't have too. Driving without a destination sounds relaxing but honestly I like knowing that I have a place that's mine when I get there.

RE: How much AC is needed?

I'll throw in that some makes of ACs work better than others so it depends.

RE: 4 x 9 plywood

Try your local lumber yards, not home centers. What your looking for is commonly called Door Skin and is used to skin hollow doors.

RE: RV air conditioner warranty

If you can get a AtWood. The one we just picked up new was still built in Australia! It's so queit, efficient and so much more powerful than the new dometic we threw off the roof.
