RE: Advice for first time RV rental and experience

while not a renter and also using travel trailers instead of motorhomes id like to point out that most of my camping is in groups with multiple rigs. Every june we do a large extended family campout. we have had as many as 12 sites with various rigs on them (smallest being a tent largest being 5th wheels well over 30 feet and everything in between. We have a 6 person site limit where we camp. each family gets their own site but we all still have common meals and campfires and visit. this is the norm for us and we are all still very much camping together only without the drama that will be inevitable with a shared rig. also yes, Juno was our beach to take. One of the proudest yet most tragic moments in our history. What part of Italy are you from? My family tree leads back to Abruzzo.

RE: Advice for first time RV rental and experience

^ I don't know about you guys but I wouldn't even consider 1 large one. no reason not to grab 2 in my opinion. campsites are close by and a baby monitor will easily reach between the 2 sites. This solves all your problems. If they wives wont be reasonable feel free to let them plan the disaster. I'm happy to help though don't assume were all American ;) Proud Canadian here.

RE: Advice for first time RV rental and experience

If you are staying at 2 parks why not rent 2 smaller rigs closer to the parks. This will alleviate all your concerns about sharing driving as there will be much less. You will get privacy, more maneuverability, more room, and have a much easier time finding.

RE: Advice for first time RV rental and experience

just a thought, cheap Wal-Mart bikes are likely not any more expensive than long term rentals.

RE: Tow Vehicle

tow rating don't mean much. your fighting the payload fight. how much payload does your door sticker say and how much will your family weigh?

RE: Camping with a baby

We also started our kids out camping at an early age. First tent camping and later a truck camper. The only caution I'll offer is be mindful of avoiding too much sun. A sunburned toddler is a miserable experience for both child and parent. sun screen and a place to cool off are valuable. this is a good piece of advice

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

I see NO way you could workcamp cheaper than rent an apartment. 1000 bucks a month is wasy to find. much less if you look. Heck across the river from me in Detroit houses can be BOUGHT by paying the back taxes. Good luck pricing that in an rv that you don't own while maintaining reliable internet and staying up with maintenance. rv payment alone will be near thet when you factor in how fast it will get trashed.

RE: Camping with a baby

^ this is true. daughter cries when camper goes into storage and bugs me to bring it home as soon as the snow starts melting. worth every one of the way too many dollars I spend on it for the memories I make with them.

RE: Camping with a baby

daughters first trip was at 4 months (winter baby) and son went at 7 weeks. A baby needs the same things camping as at home, bring what's required and no problem. We has a smaller packNplay for the camper that fit in the isle. Expect travel to take longer as they will need to stop more often. Make sure they are eating and drinking as they should and enjoy

RE: Mouse Smell In Ducts Over 1 year now - will it sell?

anything will sell if priced appropriately. expect something like this to reduce price significantly.

RE: MICE

I can vouch for mothballs and dryer sheets not doing anything given my last invasion had dryer sheets used as nesting and half eaten moth balls all over the place.

RE: New - Buying a Tralier - No Clue What I'm Doing

You came to the right place. This site is FULL of answers to the very questions that you ask (cheap to free stays of all kinds, eg). One thing I would add if you are looking to save money is to buy Used. Half retail of a recent trailer sales price would be the ball park for a nice one. Workamping is another thought since I have no idea how you make your money that want to save. Also, it depends on the SUV. Factory guidelines for your model should be easy to find. The fellow that bought a trailer from me a few years back(<5000#) had no problem staying within guidelines+safety factor with his SUV. Heck my 1994 2door Blazer was rated to tow it. Just get a good weight distribution setup. big difference between pulling your camper to the campground and towing AND carrying ALL of your stuff. I don't know about you but I leave a ton of stuff at home when I go camping given its only temporary. If I was living out of my rig I would need way more than I bring and that's without all the extras to make being on the road long term possible. Tools alone would use a few hundred lbs as would the battery setup. I see no way this is cheaper than a reasonable apartment in a reasonable part of the country

RE: Seeking custom rig

tall order with that tow vehicle. build one might be your best bet if unwilling to upgrade to more vehicle.

RE: MICE

5 gal pail 1/4 full of rv antifreeze stretch wire tight across top run wire through a tube (pvs, abs, aluminum, soup cans if your ghetto) ramps up to the wire small dab of pb on the tube near the middle check it ever few days. can catch 10+ in a night this way and they are less nasty to deal with than traps with less mess.
