RE: Thank You All

We will always travel, God willing - just changing the process! Thanks again to all.

Thank You All

DH and I just completed the transaction and sold our last RV! We have been "camping" for almost 48 years, starting with a pop-up and finishing with our Class A! Loved every minute of it, but somehow we know it's time to move on. We will continue to travel, but in our car from now on! Would like to thank everyone who took the time to answer our questions, share their experiences and impart their wisdom. Being on this forum helped in more ways than I can explain. May you all continue to enjoy your life's journey, and Happy Camping!

RE: best way to sell

Took the advice of using Facebook Marketplace - and the suggestion we do some homework to "price it to sell but not give it away". Finalized the exchange of funds today, less than 2 weeks after posting! Close to asking price too! Thanks for the help everyone!

best way to sell

After 48 years of RVing, DH and I have decided to sell our last Motorhome. Any suggestions on how best to get the word out that it is for sale? We have posted it locally on our area's "Marketplace" but would like to make the info more widespread. Thanks for your tips.

RE: What's up with CGs?

My guess is that this is protection for the owners - liability issues. It's not hard to appreciate the need to 'spell it all out' in today's litigious society. Makes it easier to remove those who do not 'get it' - that campgrounds are supposed to be safe places for families to go to and enjoy!

RE: Time for change

Wanderingaimlessly - We thought about that, but we've 'been there, done that' and simply are ready to ride a train, drive the car, or maybe even fly! We have a great firepit in our backyard (courtesy of our son!) so I can still enjoy my campfires! Thanks for the suggestion.

RE: Time for change

RognBon - Ours has been sitting as well. We still love to travel, but have found we are almost as comfortable in a decent (not overpriced) hotel room. It's just more effort now than we choose to put into using the RV. We have started to feel obligated to use it, and that's no reason to get in it and go! The other reality, of course, is cost. Its a 2006, so it is starting to need repairs. Just don't want to put any more $ into it. It's in good condition, and I'm sure another famliy will find enjoyment with it as we did!

Time for change

DH and I have been RVing for over 47 years, from a hard-sided pop up to our most recent Class A. We have both decided it is time to allow another family the chance to enjoy what we have loved doing for so very long. We're selling our Motor Home and NOT getting another! It's just time. Just want to thank everyone on this site for sharing their experiences and their expertise. Every question I have asked has been answered - almost always in a very useful way. I have learned so much from just reading your posts! Hope all continue to do well and enjoy the best vacation traditions. Sincerely, Pam and Bill Hyatt

Gettysburg CGs and Sat TV reception

Anyone aware of a CG in the Gettysburg area that has open sites so access to Sat TV is possible? Have stayed at several (Gettysburg CG, Drummer Boy, Artillery Ridge) where most sites do not offer much access. Artillery Ridge had a newer section in the back (the 400's) but many of them now have become seasonal, so I've been told. Anyone know for sure? Thanks

gettysburg and passport america

Is anyone aware if any of the campgrounds in the Gettysburg area accept Passport America discounts? Round Top is listed in the Passport America site, but I have had problems with how current it is kept. Used to use Artillery Ridge CG, but they discontinued PA several years ago. Thanks for the help.

RE: Gettysburg are campgrounds open in early March

You might want to check out campgroundreviews.com. Click on Pennsylvania and then Gettysburg. A comprehensive list of every CG in the area will be available. You can check each one's website to find out when it opens. It's still very possible for snow and cold weather in G-Burg in early March. Most CG's there shut off their water supply to the campsites to avoid problems during the winter. Many do not open before April 1st.

RE: 1st time long distance trip need advice

DH and I have traveled in our 32' Class A many, many times along I 95 from NJ down to the Florida Keys. Don't know for sure how far north you will be starting, but definitely avoid traveling 95 anywhere near New York City, and again through the Baltimore/Washington DC/Richmond and Petersburg Va areas! Far, far, far too congested and numerous restrictions concerning bridges, tunnels, etc. Don't have an atlas handy,but can definitely suggest a route that avoids the last area if you message me. Leaves 95 right after Delaware Memorial Bridge and takes U S 301/I 295 to avoid Baltimore, DC and the Richmond area, picking 95 up south of Petersburg. Only a few miles longer and much, much, much less stressful! Agree with previous posts that suggest getting fuel at Flying J/Pilot facilities all along 95. Contact Pilot online and you can get a gas/diesel credit card from them that gives you cents off per gallon! Some of them even have dedicated RV pumps! Easy to find their locations using App available online. Try checking online sites for the locations of various RV parks along the route as well. One we use is https://campgrounds.rvlife.com/ Have found it very useful for many years. Take your time and don't drive too long at any one time. We have a limit of 6 hours on the road per day when making a long trip. Fatigue is a real factor, and it can build up when day after day you push too hard just to make another 75 miles! It is much more taxing to drive an RV than a passenger car, particularly on the Interstates, where Big Wheelers and crazy car drivers compete with each other while you're just trying to drive safely! Definitely maintain the posted speed limits, but don't go faster than you feel comfortable. If you feel pressured, or are not comfortable at the 70 MPH range, there is almost always an alternate U S Highway (301, sometimes U S 1) that practically parallels 95. Might be more local traffic, but, at least for us when 95 gets hectic, it's far less stressful. Just a few of our experiences over the 45 years we have been RVing. Safe travels, and really do "stop to smell the roses!"

RE: Route 13 & Route 17 to Fl

Both highways are fine for RV travel. We have used both numerous times. Have traveled with a TT, a Class C and, most recently, a 34' Class A with a toad. Never in a 5er. I would not suggest using the Chesapeake Bay Bridge-Tunnel in any kind of windy conditions, and you might want to check the height limits going through those tunnels. Cannnot recall them. There will be traffic in the area just following the bridge-tunnel as well (Norfolk, Chesapeake) but after that little at all until Jacksonville and Wilmington, NC. Traffic again in Myrtle Beach, SC area, then again in Charleston (may choose to take I 526 around). 17 joins with I 95 at MP 33 in SC into Georgia, taking you around Savannah. Then into Florida. A little tough in Jacksonville, then goes west of I 95. Haven't taken it farther south than that. No where near as fast a trip as using I 95, but, for us, far less stressful. Any way you go, enjoy!

RE: RVs over 10 years old are valueless

DH and I have a 2006 Class A - we keep it in very presentable condition - would NEVER claim it wasn't over 10 years old - can tell simply by its design! Don't think a Georgie Boy Pursuit has been produced since maybe 2008? Anyway. Most of the CGs we have come across with a "10 year" rule have been priced beyond our willingness to pay! We like the "bells and whistles" of a "Resort", but can easily do without. No point or reason to argue - we just go somewhere else! Love state parks when a site is available, but also very willing to use a privately owned park. One thing we have learned inover 45 years of RVing - flexibility is the key!

finding value for the RV

Anyone have any experience with a free internet site that could give a ball-park value for our 2006 32' Georgie Boy Pursuit? We DO NOT want salesmen calling to offer to sell it for us - been inundated with them lately even without seeking them out! One told us he had '25 buyers waiting - could get us over $36,000! All we needed out of pocket was to send him $5oo for advertising fees!" If there were so many buyers already waiting, why did he need to advertise????? Tired of this ****. Would just like a legitimate idea of what we might get if we sold it! Bought it in 2011 for less than $50,000 with only 8,000 miles on it. Now a bit over 35,000. Made some cosmetic changes, but it is basically the same rig. New tires, brand new awning, would call it in good condition considering its age. We're both 70 and just in the 'thinking maybe its time' stage. Only the right price would get us to sell - we still use it, not like it's just sitting there. Planning our next trip month long in February as I type this. Just wondering if there is a site where we could get an idea of its value without being inundated with phone calls. Thanks.

RE: giving it up

Understand and appreciate your circumstances. DH and I are both now 70. We have been RVing (from a pop up to our present Class A) for over 45 years and have both said this is our last RV. It's a 2006 32' Georgie Boy Pursuit. Love it, and so love using it, and now being retired we do far more often. BUT - I can't drive it - never have had the faith in my abilities to do so and our physical realities make doing everything just that much harder! No longer go more than 5 hours on the road a day, and never back to back days! With the costs continuing to increase for a campsite, gas, and evrything else, we have sometimes been able to find a decent motel room for only a little more - and when factoring in the difference between 7 MPG in the RV and over 30 MPG in our traveling car, we have sometimes chosen to leave the RV at home! We still love camping, and nothing will ever replace the joy of sitting around a campfire, meeting others, but the time is close when that part of our lives will be closed. We will continue to travel, just in different ways. We have definitely created many, many forever memories for ourselves and our sons. Wouldn't have done it any other way, but things always change.

RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

WE have a 2012 Ford Fiesta, auto transmission, that we can tow flat. All Very, very easy. Comfortably fits 4 adults and we use the trunk for extra storage for our Class A. Takes less than 5 minutes total to fully hook up and less than that to separate. Cost of the car was about $3,000/

RE: Tybee Island Fine Me Beach

Sounds like Tybee Island has regulations similar to many of the very crowded beaches in the Northeast. I lived along the Jersey Shore most of my life and, basically, take a towel and your sunscreen - leave the rest at home!

February Trip

Looking for ideas for our annual February trip. Will be in our Class A with toad. We are into history and food, and enjoy wandering. LOve the back roads vs. Interstates. Starting out from home in Va, plan to visit Savannah, St Augustine, and the Pensacola areas. What I am asking for is ideas on where to go other than those places. Have done Charleston, Myrtle Beach (lived there) and not a huge fan of most of Florida. Any other places on the Gulf Coast we should make sure to see? How about Alabama or Georgia? We have about a month for the 'wander'. Just DH and I - no kids, no pets. Thanks for letting me pick your brains!
