RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Dan got out of the hospital yesterday, Patty reported. Hope all turned out well and that he is OK now.

RE: short high end fifth wheel

Thanks all for the suggestions. Artic Fox is about as close as Ive been able to get,but the shortest just not a good floorplan for me. Really frustrating that nobody tests the market. Same problem with travel trailers. That Cougar 27SGS is a nice floorplan! Wish they made it in the Premium series. Accepted it is not a premium model, but we have found the quality to be very good. :)

We love our Cougar- see signature. She is just 31ft.

Burch, So very sorry to read this about Lola. Our hearts go out to you. Martyn and Liane

RE: Rockwood & Flagstaff

Take a look at the Keystone Cougar 25RES. Fits all your numbers and from experience (we have the 27SGS) very nice trailers.

RE: Georgia States parks Veterans Memorial State Park

I agree it is a bit 'fiddley' to book there now. I have reservation there for January. :)

RE: Not enough room

I, too, use Google Maps street view. Usually get a good idea of what to expect.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

What a day yesterday was. We had wind gusts over 100mph. My front yard is trashed with leaves and branches from my two oak trees. I had one little leak around my skylight in my kitchen but other than that, no damage from hurricane Ian. There is a mobile home park down the street and parts of it look like a war zone. My father in law lives there and his place was spared but his neighbors place lost the roof. The clubhouse roof got peeled off and is laying in the road. Lots of poor people are displaced right now. I have lived in Florida all my life and this was the worst storm we have gone through. Burch Glad you made it through relatively unscathed. We know how it feels, after having gone through Michael, here, 4 years ago. My heart goes out to all those folks who are suffering right now.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I extended a road trip a bit and made the pilgrimage to Waynesboro. It took a little searching but I found Ol Fella. I remebered Richard mentioning Dr. Ford. I stumbled on her clinic and got directions. His little park-let home seems well cared for and he looks to be in good shape. I even found my brick. Tried to find OFBCAR. I made a few donations back when Richard was still involved so I wanted to see if his vision had survived him. Sorry to say there is no facility. A couple of board members still do rescues from their homes. Most go north to shelters where demand exceeds supply. Its been awhile since I posted a photo here. Hope I remember how. https://cvws.icloud-content.com/S/AcXpaQruqhrjLhCNLo4BKKGY2v0g/IMG_1993.JPG?o=ApP52dtsPATqvX4-7_XxHP1FzP98avGFN6aTGDxiYLG0&v=1&z=https%3A%2F%2Fp44-content.icloud.com%3A443&x=1&a=CAogXhuuEzy8DpisTfr6bCwFI41e-G-QLUJBaLzckmrH7GQSZRCKvrP5pjAYitXG_qYwIgEAUgSY2v0gaiV_bZVpSgf65ec6UyGyGy5HXGXgJq-e-3BoX2Nck6v5UHFGx6c8ciVaQbydo7wTJWStchtn-zvLm5OW2zA0XorUpmkMDCmHCjzFlBlt&e=1659733387&r=7effe722-becb-49f4-b032-02a583cd00ff-2&s=PfcQ5_A7A3gjTY6KWLlv7-GA0QM height=200 width=400 What a coincidence. I was there today. Have been on a road trip to Canada and arrived back in Panama City Beach about 30 mins ago. Camped near Waynesboro last night and went into town this morning.

RE: Colorado Hwy 50 @ Monarch Pass

Lived in Colorado for 30 years. I've done it with 29ft 5er and Ram 2500 5.9 CTD. No problem. Had no exhaust brake but put it in 2nd on cruise at 30mph. Let it slowly speed up to about 50 then braked hard until back to 30. Repeat. Saw me fine over that pass doing this. Also going down Wolf Creek Pass but with boat added behind the 5er. Similarly on Vail Pass. Just take it slow and careful and you will be fine. I found Monarch to be the easiest of the three.

RE: Sabre 37FLL vs what?

The Sabre dry pin weight (2570) is almost at the total payload capacity for your truck. Loaded, that trailer could be around 2900 on the pin. Not sure about the 2WD version of your truck, but the 4WD version has a capacity of 2600, and you have to deduct hitch weight and passenger weight from that. IMHO It will probably be that you would be well over your truck's limits. Bah. Haven’t updated profile. Truck is ‘22 f350 DRW. Plenty of payload for this category of fivers. No problem, then! LOL :B

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Martyn if you need a stopping place on the way North, drop me a message may be able to help you out. I have a house & barn next door, sitting empty because I don't want any renters. No RV hook up but peaceful and quiet. Very kind, but we have already booked stops for all the way up and back. I like to be prepared! Thanks anyway. :) I too have been pretty sick for a week - coughing, sore throat and runny nose. Having had covid once, even with 4 shots, I was worried I had got it again. Fortunately I was negative - just another dang cold or something! Feeling a lot better now.

RE: A Big Thank You

I won't get involved in your question but I am 81 and so far going strong. Leaving in the morning on a 500mi trip. Have fun 73 here and heading on a round trip from Florida to Ontario in a few weeks. Have trips planned once a month for the next 11 months. We love it.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Kudos for keeping the thread going, Burch. It is much appreciated. I visit every day but don't often have much to report! We are not going anywhere over the 4th as we have a friend visiting from Colorado. We do have a trip planned for late July into August. We are doing a reverse snowbird trip. We have close friends in Ontario who come down here every winter so we have decided to go up and visit them! We are really looking forward to it despite the high price of gas. It was always going to be an expensive trip so now it will be a bit more. :)

RE: 5th wheel front tripod

We're currently staying at an rv park and while walking around I notice out of 100+ 5ers 2 have what looks like a support tripod under the kingpin. What is the purpose of it when you already have 4 or 6 jacks plus the tires on the ground? None whatsoever. :)

RE: Tire exploded in Florida

Trailer King tires are about the worst tire out there. On my new Cougar one blew after only 50 miles. They have extremely thin walls and are thus very susceptible to blowing. I replaced all four of mine with Carlisles within a week of purchase. Have now driven thousands of miles with no issue. If you research Trailer King tires you will find many horror stories. IMHO It's actually quite interesting that the OP's tires lasted as long as they did.

RE: Florida experts - driving to Topsail

I would take the Google route, it is shorter mileage-wise but will probably take you longer. We like checking the local scenery on the way into the CG. I'm from NY, I don't mind towing the RV in heavy traffic or on narrow streets LOL. If you want the path of least resistance, go the other way. 98 in and east of Destin has been under construction for at least the last 4 years. The traffic is awful - we don't go there to shop unless we absolutely have to!. Far better to go the other way and still good scenery.
