RE: Bow Lake 55+ Residential Community in Seatac Wa

Yelp has 2 reviews for that park and both are 1 star reviews. Have you ever checked out Kanasket Palmer State Park? It's east of Kent several miles but on the Green River in the woods. About half the sites have water and electric (no sewer hookups but a dump station at the campground).

RE: Washington State

All great suggestions on where to go and what to do. I would also recommend Mt St Helens - Taidnapam campground is a nice place to stay and you can drive up to the overlook and see where the mountain blew out and down into Spirit Lake. The trees were blown over like matchsticks. Olympic peninsula is another favorite - Port Townsend is a Victorian town and Fort Worden is where they filmed An Officer and a Gentleman, nice campground but does fill up fast. Fort Flagler is another campground nearby on Marrowstone Island. If both are booked, the Port Ludlow campground is also very nice. Chimacum (Finn River Cider is excellent there), Poulsbo (Sluy's Bakery is legendary), Hood Canal (Hama Hama Oyster Saloon), Port Gamble (old logging town, neat shops and haunted) - all in the same area. Taking Hwy 20 back you could take the ferry from Port Townsend over to Whidbey Island and go that way (also a beautiful place to visit) and see Deception Pass. Anacortes is there (along with a couple of campgrounds) and you could take a ferry to the San Juan's. Winthrop is along that Hwy 20 route as someone mentioned already - also a neat town. Have a fabulous trip and safe travels!

RE: Toy hauler for kayaks and bicycles

We've hauled our scooters, bicycles, wash-tub fire pit, gas bbq from our back deck....nice to be able to just walk up the back ramp, tie down whatever we want to take and go.

RE: ATC 5th Wheel MSRP vs Purchase Price

What dealer are you buying from? We have an ATC toy hauler trailer - bought new last year from 99 Trailers in Oregon. Base price for the same trailer went up $5k this year. We negotiated 16% off MSRP, which for ATC is pretty good. One thing they will not negotiate is the freight charge (3k for us), so that was a big chunk. We also added a LOT of options. Absolutely love our unit - ATC is a quality product and they stand behind it. They also listen to their customers.

RE: Onan 5500 Backfires and Dies under a load

Check this site towards the bottom (should be on page 2): https://www.smokstak.com/forum/showthread.php?t=144848&page=2 One person had a valve adjustment done and it fixed the problem, another had the Cummins dealer say it was a bad coil. We had similar issues on our Onan but it had to do with vapor lock. Also on other forums they mention to check the altitude setting. Good luck!

RE: Pets riding in trailer

That is a unique and tough situation when they all don't quite get along yet. Personally, I would be hesitant to put a dog back there just based on the ride alone. I would think it to be a lot rougher of a ride in the back part of the trailer rather than up in the cab of the truck. Also sounds stressful when they're already probably a bit stressed from going into foster care. Just my two cents - best of luck to you and safe travels.

RE: Seattle RV Park Recs

If you're open to driving to the train station and riding that into Seattle, or even driving from the south end, there is Kanasket-Palmer State Park out in Ravensdale. About half the sites have power but no water or sewer hook ups. Beautiful area. If you want to be closer, I would second Lake Pleasant in Bothell.

RE: Which one is better built. Pros and cons

The Sahara and the Beaver will be very similar. We had a 30 foot 1996 Sahara which should be the same floorplan as the Beaver. Due to the shorter size, we didn't have the velvet ride suspension, we had leaf springs and added a couple because the back end squatted a bit. Never had a problem with "porpoising" and the shorter length. Easier to maneuver with 5 feet less in campgrounds/sites, too (but still had everything we wanted in the rig). The CAT engine and Allison transmission were great and very dependable. (Although the engine was 250 hp). Went halfway across the country a couple of times and all the way across to the New England states in 2013. Previous owner (we were the 2nd owners) had taken it to FL and back. No issues. Roof leaks were a problem. The top is a one piece fiberglass cover and we had issues with the end caps, where the satellite was mounted and the fiberglass cover in general (cracking) because it had to be sealed with a couple coats of elastomeric "paint" every year by the time we sold it in 2016. We loved our Safari for the 9 years we had it. Yes, there was quite a bit of maintenance but it was comfortable, the build quality was unbelievable (solid wood cabinets, lots of lighting options - including several with dimmers, porcelain commode, wood floors, HUGE bathroom) and we met a lot of great people at the rally's and excellent information on the forums. Leaks would be the main thing I'd check and maintenance records for the engine and transmission.

RE: Eastern US/Canada/Texas Trip Advice

Sounds like a fabulous trip! We made a trip from WA back to the New England States in 2013 for 6.5 weeks in our RV and want to do it again (not retired yet so have to build up the time). Definitely recommend Kennebunkport in Maine, very quaint town (our favorite). We stayed at Red Apple Campground. Wish we went to Portland but ran out of time. Our next favorite area was Vermont - specifically for the King Arthur Flour campus in White River Junction (we're foodies), all the covered bridges, Cabot creamery (excellent!) up outside of Montpelier (also a neat town) and of course, Ben & Jerry's. Cooperstown, NY is a fun place (even if you're not a baseball fan)with really cool architecture throughout the town. Maumee Bay State Park in Ohio on the south end of Lake Erie was beautiful - we stayed there for a few days. Huge campground and park. Lots of trails. Wish we had time to go north into Michigan and the upper peninsula. Hear that's pretty spectacular. Safe travels!
