RE: Clabough's? Pigeon Forge TN

We have stayed at Claboughs a couple of times over the years. It is adequate. We like our satellite and the sites we have been assigned were in the woods. I believe this was two GCs at one time and got bought out and became one. The section we stayed in was obviously older and there was a muddy creek filled with too many ducks and duck ****. It had the general feeling of not being kept up very well. Now, that was around ten years ago or maybe more. It may have improved since then, but there was room for improvements.

RE: Mt. Rushmore & Badlands-Cabins or Lodges recommendations

Broken Arrow mile or so south of Custer. FHU great view of the Cathedral Towers up toward Sylvan Lake. Short drive to downtown for supplies. Sites are a bit small but the staff is first rate friendly. . . and they have ice cream socials

RE: Overnight Options in Sedona

Depends on the direction you approach Flagstaff from. If you are heading north on I-17 then there is Munds Park RV resort about 20 miles south of Flagstaff. Lot of permanents for snowbird types, but we overnited there a few years back and the sites were fine FHU and cable as I recall. Easy off and on 17.

RE: Durango, Colorado camp spots?

United Campground is just off the main road. The Durango Railroad runs through the CG and the CG is on the Animas River. Pretty cool. The far side of the RR is in the trees with nice sized sites. Alas, they are lined up. ;)

can't you add washers to tighten it up?

RE: Gassing Up

Good answers all. I start planning an exit when I first figure I need fuel. Try to drive on the top half of the tank. Not scared of running out of fuel, but there may be stations that have diesel, but you cannot get in and out of. Might have to drive until you find one you can

RE: 07 Damon Tuscany Batteries

We have an 08 Essence. I have replaced batteries from the local Freightliner dealer twice. They run sales fairly regularly. FL part number is ABP/31S925. 2015 price was $169.98 Sale price. My contact there says to check if I need them and the last time he sold me a slightly smaller CA battery (pair) for about what full price would have been. The sale makes a lot of difference in prices. The original batteries were EPM/AE1131XMF (2011 price on these were $276) If you google the part numbers and look at the Alliance site, you can cross reference with other brands

RE: Family RV road trip- Mount Rushmore/Yellowstone/Grand Teton

You are really covering a lot of territory and as you rush thru, you are missing some great and interesting sites. It is not doing justice to the Black Hills. Custer SP, Rushmore, Crazy Horse only scratch the surface. Spearfish Canyon is a great ride and you can spend a day stopping for photos and just seeing the sites in it. Some of the back roads in CSP is where you really see the wild life, from buffalo, to elk, deer, antelope, (if you are up early you may see a mountain lion) big horn sheep and mountain goats up near Sylvan Lake. If your heart is set on Yellowstone and spending a lot of time there, then forget the Badlands and Devil's Tower - although both are pretty spectacular by themselves. Cody is a great place to visit and stay a few days, getting there over the Big Horns will be an interesting experience. Make sure your brakes on both truck and trailer are in good shape. Have a great trip, wish we were following you across

RE: Late Flotrida Campground

Camp Lemora, just south of Hillsborough River State Park , US 41 on Dead Horse rd. We have stayed there a few times - winters. Not a lot of extras, but the prices are good and lots of space. Usually have extra space anytime of the year. FHU

RE: Taking fifth wheel from central jersey to Disney world

Mapquest says it's 1 hour longer if you go 76 to 81 to 77 to 26 to 95, instead of 95 all the way. My experience is you can sit in traffic on 95 longer then that. Absolutely true and that routing is more scenic and relaxing in my experience. X2 I-95 through that part of the nation expecting to make good time is a gamble at best. 81 is a beautiful route and you will arrive much happier

RE: Favorite Travel/Truck Stops for Class A

Quik Trip (QT) company out of Texas is moving into the SE US and have been upgrading their regular stations to truck stops with diesel and gas RV lanes, or you can fuel in the lanes. Several on I-85 have truck parking and allow RV parking as well. Usually the best prices in the area, gas and diesel. Our favorite stop gave me a card that will allow the pumps to remain on w/o having to stop and re-start when the $100 limit is reached.

RE: Campground Opinion

I know the area but have not stayed there. I just looked at Google Earth street view and you can actually 'drive' into the park (or perhaps through?) Looks like paved streets and gravel sites. Sites look tight and the trees limbs look a little low for a big rig. If you already have reservations, then I would not cancel and look farther. Like a lot of places we have stayed, you will likely only sleep there and will be doing a lot of touring. That is a great area to tour

RE: Best Tow dinghy

We towed an 03 Honda Element for years and thousands of miles. No problems and followed like a shadow. If they were still made and still towable, I would buy one tomorrow

RE: An American Tradition w/300hp cummins?

Tires and roof condition are two important and expensive items on a 2000 coach.

RE: How do you get a library card when your address is a PMB

So let me get this straight. You want to receive a government benefit that you do not really qualify for. You want it funded by a government entity that you have NEVER payed taxes too. SEEMS like freeloading to me. Make sure you never overnite at a WalMart, rest area, truck stop or the dozens of other areas RVers use. By the way, take a chill pill and go camping - sounds like you are wrapped a bit tight

RE: Leaving a tow dolly outside the campground

Have a hitch on the rear of the toad and that will allow you to drop both, take the MH in the park, then use the toad to tow the dolly back to the MH and slide the tongue of the dolly under the chassis of the MH to store it out of the way.

RE: East Coast

DC is a PIA even in an auto, MH is not a good idea ever. Park the RV and drive the toad. At any given time you may have streets blocked and motorcades with motorcycles, police cars and black SUVs flying down the streets

RE: I75 South to Orlando Fl

There is construction in S bound lanes on I-75 north of Atlanta. Not in the actual lanes but they are building an overhead road on the right side. All this is about 3 or 4 miles and pretty much finished by the time you get to I-285. Worst times is early in the morning rush hour. Moves along pretty well after 9 AM or a little later. Not good on Fridays! Come thru on a Sunday is best, but if you cannot, try between 10 AM and 2 PM. Remember when you come all the way through there are people trying to get back South to go home also.

RE: What's the story with "No TOAD on the road"?

Tried it - did it without a toad for most of the trip. Missed so many places we wanted to see while enroute because we were too big or there were no rentals available. Got to Las Vegas and rented a small Chevy. Some much freedom even though we were staying on the Strip. We do not trip now w/o a towed. I believe you will find the same inconveniences we did.
