RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

It seems that mother nature has the last say on my 5,000 mile Yellowstone trip. The flooding has wiped out many road sections in the northern end of the park. Some roads are not expected to reopen this season. Some things just ain't meant to be.

https://www.eia.gov/outlooks/steo/report/prices.php#:~:text=Diesel%20wholesale%20margins%20in%20the,averages%20%244.78%2Fgal%20in%203Q22. Looks like the prediction for 2023 fuel price is not much better. So putting our trip off until next may not make much of a difference on fuel costs.

RE: Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

I've still not made a final decision on our 5k mile trip this summer. Our decision isn't between going or sitting home. Our decision is between going or doing something else where I'm not burning $3,000 or $4,000 worth of diesel. Just that diesel money would come close to paying for two back to back 7-day Caribbean cruises (2 ppl) or one Alaska cruise (2 ppl). The two unknowns effecting my decision are: how much higher diesel will go this summer and will it come back down by next summer. Who knows?

Anyone Cancelling Truck Camper Trips Due to Fuel Prices?

Please, no political comments. We have a 5,000 mile trip planned with reservations made, but we are reconsidering due to fuel prices. 60 cents per mile for diesel is pretty bad.

Thank you for contributing.

RE: truck camper sitting in a wet truck bed

Ditto. Those drains can clog up in a sprayed bed. Pine pollen works real good at clogging them up.

RE: In 2 years time I can no longer afford to buy a camper

I need a new Miller mig welding machine. I've been looking at them for the last 3 years. In that time the machine I wanted has gone from about $2400 to $4000. Whoever is saying inflation is 7.9% is full of it.

RE: CB Antennas?

Read this: FIRESTIK INFO The second advantage of co-phased antennas is there ability to perform where there is little reflective ground plane for the single antenna to radiate its energy from. For instance, on fiberglass vehicles or those with light aluminum sheeting over a non-metallic frame. In those situations a co-phase set-up allows the antennas to use each other's radiation field to direct the combined energy across the horizon. In order to be effective at least 2/3's of each antenna must have unobstructed line-of-sight to the other antenna.

RE: CB Antennas?

I generally use our cb when we are traveling with others who have cb radios. I only switch to 19 when there is a wreck/traffic back up or I'm just bored. Swearing doesn't bother me on 19. What does piss me off is the racist insults aimed at people out working hard just trying to earn a living.

https://youtu.be/H_s4kA2LEh8 Similar to this mount. I added two additional screws and a spring.

RE: CB Antennas?

A fender mount can't handle a 5 footer? I have a fender gap mount on our jeep jk. I would not trust it to handle a 5' antenna.

RE: CB Antennas?

On our old lance I mounted two 2' firestik antennas on the top of the ladder.. Since they "saw" each other, they used each other as a ground plane. That setup worked very well.

RE: CB Antennas?

5 minutes. Ain't seen it since. I wish I had mounted the cb antenna on my jeep the same way.

RE: CB Antennas?

I mounted a 5 ft Firestik right in the center of the front bumper on our 2018 F350. Works great.

RE: Ranger Lakes CG Colorado

Colorado has a habit of draining my favorite trout lakes. They drain Antero Res a few years back right after I discovered that place and the big fat rainbows in it. Another good trout lake in that area is Lake Agnes. Its about a mile walk into the lake, but the fish and scenery are worth it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UD_HkMLr7qw

RE: Ranger Lakes CG Colorado

We fished ranger lakes many moons ago. Only thing we ever caught were small stockers. Try Michigan Res a few miles down the road. Flies and lures only. We caught and released many brown and rainbows fishing from shore with rooster tails. Fish are larger in that lake than ranger. We always had good luck in late sept.

RE: A new adventure for me.

Your camper looks similar to our 1996 Lance. Keep an eye on your 12V converter if its a Magnetech. They were a crappy design and prone to cooking batteries........among other things. We kept our 96 Lance 23 years.
