RE: Tucson to Depoe Bay, Oregon

I've gone up to the central Oregon coast for several summers. We've driven every which way. Sounds like you just want to get there quickly, which would be the already suggested I-40/58/99/I-5 route. But if you want to take your time, Hwy 395 north from 58 is very scenic and warrants several stops to enjoy the sites and scenery.

RE: From South to North, best route thru Pheonix

Thanks for the info ItsyRV!

RE: From South to North, best route thru Pheonix

I didn't know about 101 construction in the east valley. Where (what stretch) is the construction? I'll be coming down to Apache Junction after New Year. I normally drive (southbound) 17/101/60 or 17/101/202/60. OP, sorry to insert my own question into your thread. Just thought I'd catch the ones in the know while they are here.

RE: From South to North, best route thru Pheonix

There are many factors that affect traffic in the Phx area, as in all cities....time of day, special events, accidents, construction. I would just check the traffic at www.az511.com (or call 511) or the Waze app before you leave. Try to leave late morning after the bulk of rush hour(s) traffic. Then go either 202 (or 60) over to 101 all the way to I-17. Or 10/51/101/17 as suggested by swphotobug...or 10/143/202/51/101/17 :)

RE: Seneca Lake Area

Looks like Sampson SP only has electric at the campsites. I don't know what else is around. I can only tell you that a couple months ago, we stayed at Sned-Acres Campground along Cayuga Lake and found it very pleasant.

RE: Best route from Merced Ca to Mesa Az

Ditto the Lancaster (Antelope Valley) fairground if you go that way.

RE: Best route from Merced Ca to Mesa Az

I assume you are looking at the route through Palmdale that takes Hwy 138 to connect to I-10. That route will involve more southern CA traffic. I would take the route suggested by azdryheat. I've drive 58 and I-40 many times. If you just want a quick easy stop for the night, I've stayed at Newberry Mountain RV Park just off I-40 about 20 miles east of Barstow.

RE: Full-time in the Arizona heat

Use awnings if you can. You may have to run your AC 24/7...in Phoenix (or AJ) it can be 90 degrees at night. Like others wrote, best to head to higher elevation...within AZ if you want to stay close.

RE: RV lots in Phoenix area??

I don't know of anything like that in AZ either. I imagine each city has their own codes about what can be put on an empty lot. You might start by calling around to different town offices to ask. Maybe if you're not within city limits, perhaps county rules are different.

RE: Country Ham

No country ham in Sedona. We go to Waffle House in Apache Junction (outside of Phoenix) in the winter when we're down there. But we do have a couple slices in our freezer from Broadbent Hams in Kentucky :) I see there's no Waffle House in Kingman.

RE: RV lots in Phoenix area??

Where is the lot that you own in Yuma? Is it in a single-family house neighborhood? A small mobile home park? HOA? What is your goal? I mean do you want, for example, a house to live in seasonally where you can also park your RV with hookups?...that's not in a park?

RE: Country Ham

down home...you made me laugh so hard! My spouse, who is from Kentucky, likes the country ham at Waffle House (even in AZ!) Sometimes we even ask them to sell us a slice or two (after eating breakfast there), and they do. Cracker Barrel has it too, as already mentioned.

RE: Grand Canyon (South Rim) to Sedona in 2020

pigman1 gave you a good description of why you should take I-17 and Hwy 179. I just drove my car up and down Oak Creek Canyon (Hwy 89A) last week. Saw a couple and a Class C stopped at a very inappropriate place on the road, standing behind the RV holding their whole awning! Yes, their whole awning with hardware must have been knocked off the RV, likely from the roadside rock cliffs mentioned by pigman1. A couple weeks ago, I drove home in my motorhome with tow car down I-17. Unfortunately, it is jarring between Flagstaff and Hwy 179 exit. I hope ADOT repaves it soon. Use your gears on the long downhill. Sedona can get a little snow too, but not nearly as much as Flagstaff. Very occasionally, Hwy 89A and/or I-17 are closed for a few hours, like in an active snow storm or right after until they get the roads cleared.

RE: I40 through Nashville on to Flagstaff!

Kingman is not between Nashville and Flagstaff. I just drove our motorhome with tow car on I-40 from Nashville to Flagstaff a week ago. No problem at all. Some areas have been repaved, so not as bad as used to be. Was quite a pleasant and easy drive. Wind can be a problem though, so check the weather. By far, the worst part of my trip was on I-17 between Flagstaff and Sedona. Now that rattled my fillings! We stayed at Walmarts along the way, as well as Rockwell RV Park in Oklahoma City and USA RV Park (as kalynzoo mentioned) in Gallup NM. Both good and easy stops.

RE: RV dump station map

ford truck guy...On the sanidumps website, if you choose "United States" and then click "Submit" (instead of typing a zip code below that), you will be able to then choose an individual State, then you can see a map of that State or choose a city in that State.

RE: Albuquerque Balloon Festival Questions

We went some years ago. Stayed at Enchanted Trails RV Park (with reservations far ahead). They offered a shuttle van to take us to and from the festival grounds (for a fee). Much less hassle for us. Have no idea what goes on now, but you might call a few RV parks to find out if they do this. I've heard that staying at the festival grounds is the best experience though.

RE: Albany NY on Hwy 9-Any LOW BRIDGE issues?

We just drove westward on Hwy 9 from Brattleboro, VT (to Cooperstown) a couple weeks ago. Beautiful drive with no problems. Don't know about eastward from Brattleboro.

RE: Brattleboro, VT to Cooperstown, NY

Thanks for your responses (and the additional eating tips :)) Helps to know what to expect.

Brattleboro, VT to Cooperstown, NY

I'll be driving this route in about a week. Looks like a fairly straight shot west. But is Hwy 9 across VT okay for a motorhome with toad? Looks pretty squiggly on Google maps.
