RE: People suck

I was at TopSail Preserve the week it was closing. The camp store had plenty of RV toilet paper so I bought a few packs. On the drive home, the wife ordered a bunch of plant based Dude Wipes - so clean butts around here for the time being.

RE: It's time for a replacement truck

I've pulled 12K with a late model 6.4 hemi. Could watch the gas gauge traveling from F to E as it screamed up the hills and terrain changes.

RE: Just bought my first travel trailer

What the salesman told me that sold me my trailer is that he has a similar sized trailer and pulls it comfortably with a F-150. He said as long as it’s a newer truck it would work just fine. I was thinking 3/4 ton not 1/2 ton from the start. I currently have a newer Dodge Durango that I really like. I was thinking of trading it in for a Dodge 2500 with a Diesel engine but have heard Ford is better for towing. "pulls it comfortably" - now that's a loaded statement. Depends on what your level of comfort is. Gas engines make their power in the higher rpm bands. So lots of revving going up every hill and overpass. Drives me nuts after a while. I pulled the fifth wheel in my signature with a 2017 Ram with the 6.4 hemi. Was it capable? Yes. Was it comfortable? Not really. Was spent at the end of a 4 hour drive. If for any reason, you may consider a bigger camper in the future, then get the 3500 SRW. If anything get a diesel - don't be scared of them like i was. I'm not going to go in on weights/payload as others have mentioned this. Just know that a diesel in a 2500 series truck has a lot less payload because the engine is heavier. If cost is a concern, then look at used. CarMax, Cargurus, etc. Gas mileage? Way better when towing - and that's where you want to be. I don't calculate it - I just know that I have to stop less. Took a recent trip to TopSail preserve across FL on I10. It just rolls on and on. Sat back and enjoyed the trip. No more stress or white knuckles for me. Good luck

RE: vinyl black spot removal

I use Mold Armor on everything that gets moldy - awning, gaskets around cargo doors, propane tank cover. I spray it on and let it sit then rinse - no rolling the awning up, but suppose that doesn't hurt. Walmart, Lowes. https://i5.walmartimages.com/asr/3570f1aa-bcd2-4821-b794-86c89801fc2f_1.9fec06cc3b21fa58a2e891075f250f30.jpeg?odnHeight=450&odnWidth=450&odnBg=FFFFFF

RE: coronavirus...put it into perspective

Just wait - that's all I have to say. Oh - and please don't consume chemicals for cleaning fish tanks even though someone told you that its a cure. Good luck

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

What ever the length of the loan is, just be sure that there is not a penalty for paying if off early - then just pay more on it per month.

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

Oh - now you were just offering an opinion. Here’s what you said: Those of you who are bullying those of us that had a bit of criticism are no different. Think it's time to end this thread. Maybe check your own butt

RE: Having Second Thoughts

We decided not to go before they announced the closure. I cancelled the reservation at winter garden and got a full refund. Out of pure luck or Divine intervention, we scored a Cancellation at Top Sail for the same time period. Sitting here on my site typing this listening to music and sipping wine.

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

Those of you who are bullying those of us that had a bit of criticism are no different. Think it's time to end this thread.Too bad you and your cohorts had to criticize the OP in the first place. If you have a differing opinion on what should have been done, then offer that opinion - don't criticize. As the recipient of a lost set of keys, I'm grateful to anyone who at least tried to help. Just an FYI, If there are any of those shopper cards on the key ring, the store they are for can likely find an address, email or phone number to get them back to the owner.That's a great idea.

RE: Recovering from rotator cuff surgery...what to expect?

Start a walking routine - see how much weight you have lost after being able to return to full duty.

Well, Emily was kind of cute - but that's all I've got to say about that video...

RE: First trip with new baby advice

We set up our dinette as a bed without cushions and secured the pack-n-play on top. Later we used the jack-knife sofa with lots of pillows around including on the floor. Worked out great!

RE: Having Second Thoughts

We will be there 4 nights - only spending one day at Disney.

Having Second Thoughts

We have some unused Disney passes, so sometime in December, we started looking for a place to stay near Disney (Orlando) over spring break which for us in next week. The only place we found with availability was Winter Garden RV Resort, so we booked a premium site, with thoughts of continuing to look at nearby state parks for cancellations. Well, no luck so we are on for Winter Garden- but... I starting to have second thoughts about this park and even going to Disney given current events due to the following: The "Resort", while providing full hookups, has all grass sites. Pictures of the CG seem to indicate sites in close proximity, and there are many seasonal and permanent campers. RVParkReviews isn't making anything better with lots of so - so reviews. I've read that Disney has told some workers to stay home. I'm not an alarmist, but I'm beginning to have a sinking feeling that although I'm getting to use my camper, It just won't be a fun trip. We are visiting Fort Wilderness in early June to use the remainder of the passes and experience the camp ground, but I'm finding myself on the fence. If I cancel at this point, I'd be fine with the one night fee not being refunded. Anyone have any experience with this resort? Would you want to go to Disney over spring break?

RE: liquid roof

If I needed a roof replacement, I'd go to FLEXArmor where they remove all vents, AC units, etc, do spot repairs and spray on their product on, then back it up with a lifetime guarantee that is transferable to a new owner. Wondering how you would replace a roof vent or a skylight with all the screws covered.If you really want to know - click on the link and read the FAQ's Read them before.But grinding off all the screws and the coating to remove a vent? LolCongratulations - you answered your own question while simultaneously amusing yourself!

RE: Shopping by phone or text

your profile says your location is South so maybe you have Publix Grocery stores. We sometimes use their delivery service in a pinch - on Superbowl Sunday for example - or if for some reason we "just don't want to" which isn't often. Sometimes the weekends just slip away, and we would rather cook dinner and relax on Sunday evening instead of giving up family time to shop. You can add the items you want using their app. If you order alcohol, an adult has to receive the items and show a drivers license. It isn't that expensive and we have yet to be disappointed.

We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet.

RE: Not your dad's Airstream

Nice... BUT - - - I have never been a fan... all that money and all you have is a 24" or so walkway from front to back.. no slides, no room to stretch... Just my opinion.. They don't float my boat ! :RMe either. Not taking away from the nice job on the interior - but where do you hang out in this thing - watch TV, play cards, etc?
