RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

No dog in the hunt (I don't RV anymore) but a couple of things jumped out at me: - It seems like KOA is somehow the benchmark? Didn't used to be that way 10+ years ago when I was active; - A nice shiny new park where one is 2' away from the next guy is not appealing but FWIW, I'd pay a fair amount of coin for a spot that was: a) newish; b) clean; c) not decaying; d) not jammed; and e) had good clean showers and washrooms. I fly the ol PA-12 out every summer for some real boondocking, but when I used to RV, a nice spacious layout served with a clean shower setup was always worth a fair amount of money. I am surprised no one ask what a PA-12 is. LOL I know as my dad taught me to fly in a PA-22. Happy flying!

RE: Just sold the hybrid after 10 years.

This year makes 13 years he have had our Jayco 25E. We are looking at an APEX 300BH for the same reason. Getting older and want something that makes it harder to hear the neighbors while I am trying to sleep. Although we plan to sell our hybrid part of me is not sure I can part with it. Just so many good memories. I have two nieces that would go camping with us from the time they were about five years old. One is in college and one is graduating high school this year. And my son just turned 13 but he still likes to go and take friends. And like others we took our hybrid a lot of places. Good luck with your new TT.

RE: 2020 RV SHOW

Oh and I did not notice any window/door folks at the Timonium show. My brother lives outside of Butler PA. He was telling me about the Pittsburgh RV show he went to last week. Here is the vendor list. Is it an RV show, or a home show? Affordable Tent & Awnings American Window Industries Baker's Waterproofing Bella Terra Vineyards Chilla Gear Chocolate Fusion Cindy Cohen School of Driving Cinnamon Roasted Almonds Country Hammer Moonshine Cu Distributor Inc.

RE: 2020 RV SHOW

I get enough of that at Hershey once a year should I get the inkling to go up there. Not really interested though to go look at the same old stuff, same old junk, and the same booths selling replacement windows and gutter guards while paying $30-$40 with parking to do so. Been to one, been to em all. I do not go to the Hershey one because of the parking fee. But I did check out the one in Timonium Maryland last year and liked it. No parking fee and I think it was only $8 or so to get in. Its nice to look at so many different RV's under roof. Not always but sometimes you can get a good deal. Like anything else do your homework. Oh and I did not notice any window/door folks at the Timonium show.

RE: Can we pull a TT with our ‘20 Suburban

We are looking at this unit. Light weight and a bunkhouse in the back for kids. Might fit the bill for you as well. https://coachmenrv.com/travel-trailers/apex-ultra-lite/300BHS/294

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

I like to talk. If you are setting outside I will say hi and sometimes start up a conversation. My wife on the other hand is not a talker and likes to set inside. But that is fine. And I get a lot of folks asking questions about the dogs when setting outside and I love to talk about my greyhounds. But is does depend on what park and what time of year you go. Socializing is part of the fun of camping. And you do meet some interesting folks along the way.

RE: New Trailer Day!

Congrats! We did the same thing sort of. We did tent, Pop-up, HTT, and now we too are looking at a TT upgrade this year. Have fun and make lots of memories.

RE: Worst RV Brand List

Thor should be on the top of that list. Would never by anything made by Thor.Kind of funny from someone that owns a Jayco owned by Thor. My Jayco was made before Thor bought them out. After Thor Bought them they went down hill to the point they brought back in some of the original owners to fix things. I would not buy another Jayco since Thor bought them.

RE: Large dog

Our two Greyhounds always go with us on camping trips. We never let them alone in the camper more than a few hours at most if we need to do something we cannot take them along for. In fact we once rented a boat to go from one island to another just so we could take our dogs along as the ferry would not let pets on board. Our Greyhounds even have life vest just as we would for our two legged kid. Most times if my dogs cannot go then we do not go. But that's just us. You have to figure that out for yourself.

RE: Having a SENIOR moment

The ones that get my goat are when I am towing on back roads with hills and I get behind some little car that thinks they have to ride the brakes down hill. Now I am not talking about steep mountains just general hills. If I see I have to go back up one hill while going down hill I like to let my rig coast a little within reason to help get up the next hill. Always get behind someone riding there brakes.

RE: Campground Theft

Wow I never knew stealing was so rampant around some campgrounds. I have never had an issue. Most campers we have been around are good people. Yes you have the occasional kid stuff. More pranks than being thieves but never had something disappear. Stealing is not funning except for the guy getting his sewer hose stolen while connected to his RV. That one is a little funny. LOL

RE: Frameless windows question

One thing about the frameless windows that I don't like is that they don't swing out very far. I got this idea from someone else on the internet, except I used 3/4" electrical PVC conduit, which happens to be Open Range gray. Just cut it to the length you want, and I used a 45 degree elbow, cut the end for the correct angle, leaving a tab to fit into the emergency window slot. The window handle slides all the way into the conduit snugly. I made 2 of these for the living area and it cost about $5. I may add pins if I get worried about the wind. https://i.imgur.com/ElIO8Zel.jpg https://i.imgur.com/l7vpIzNl.jpg I've now used these a bunch of times over the summer and they work great. Thanks for the post. I like that idea. My wheels are turning one step further and make the prop adjustable. LOL

RE: Mysteries of RV design

Our former travel trailer had this too. Besides being a pain in the neck to open/close it, any time the wind blew or any trailer movement whatsoever happened, a distinctive "tink tink tink" could be heard. Our current 5th wheel doesn't have an outside vent. Just a vent hood and filter. I don't miss the "tink tink tink" noise but no vent at all isn't the best thing either. I had to laugh when you wrote "tink tink tink" LOL. Have to listen to the "tink tink tink" all the time.

RE: What happened to

Whatever... I like Woody Woodpecker smoking his ceegar stuck on a street rod... LOL. Agree everyone is offended by everything now days.

RE: Frameless windows question

I also worried about "no breeze" because of the narrow opening abilitty of them but like the salesman said, "turn the Fantastic Fan on low and you have all the breeze you need" Darned if he wasn't right. Tinbender LOL Kind of what I was thinking.

RE: Frameless windows question

Thanks everyone for taking the time to post your experience and opinion on them. Seems that some folks like them and some do not. I think over all they have more pros than cons based on everyone's input.

Frameless windows question

My wife and I are looking at a new RV and I like the look of the frameless windows. But one of the dealers I talked to was trying to talk me out of that option because according to him they have problems leaking. Does anyone with frameless windows have any problems with them leaking? I really like the look of them but also do not water in my RV.
