RE: Jayco or Grand Design

I would check reviews on the dealers and go with the one with the best reviews.

RE: Federal Mask mandate

We just returned from a trip in our MOHO. We left on Christmas Day and returned on the 17th. We headed south for some warmth, spent some time in NOLA. They have a mask mandate when "in public". About 95% of the people on the streets and 98% of people inside the stores had on masks. There were signs all around stating the the city had a mask mandate in place. Most people abided by that. While in a couple of stores (didn't go in many), if someone walked in without a mask, the owner/employee would ask for masks to be worn. I saw some people leave instead.

RE: Help me plan my trip please! RI, DE and MD

We did a 3 week excursion up to ME, RI, MA, DE and MD several years ago. We stayed at Ginny B's in Foster, RI. It had a large pond that my daughters enjoyed fishing in. They caught and released a couple of fish. It was not far from whatever Interstate we were driving on (sorry, it's been a while). There were lots of seasonal campers there, but they were all nice and welcoming. We were invited to dinner at one of our closest neighbors. In Maryland, I will suggest Point Lookout SP. It is at the very tip end of Southern Maryland (not on the DELMARVA peninsula) and is on the Chesapeake Bay, where the Potomac runs into it. There is lots of paddling on both the Potomac and the Chesapeake, as well as their lake. Being on the water, it is very buggy, but we had such a great time. (We hosted there for 3 summers in a row). My daughters were 6 and 9 when we started going and absolutely LOVED the Nature Center in the park. It had lots of programs specifically for under 12 kids. If you are wanting to get to the DELMARVA peninsula, the Delaware Seashore SP is right on the water. Not a lot of shade, but it is centrally located between Rehobeth Beach, DE and Ocean City, MD. Lots and lots of great seafood is available within a 15 minute drive from the SP. If you haven't Assateague and Chincoteague areas are definitely worth visiting with the wild ponies. The time you are planning to be there would be during the running of the ponies, so it might be hard to get a reservation. If you are unfamiliar with that, just google it. It's worth seeing.

RE: Which TT has the Best Kitchen and Why?

I think it is a nice floorplan for 2 people, but it definitely doesn't have a lot of storage for food or clothing. That would be the only real drawback I see by looking at just the floorplan. Also, is there a designated place to put that removable table when it's removed? That would be a real consideration for me since I wouldn't want to lay it on the bed or put it in the shower or.....

RE: TCs and Covid Vaccinations

Covid had not altered my camping s far and I doubt that it will. I'm not worried about it altering my camping, I'm worried about it altering my LIVING!! I'll take the vaccine as soon as it's open for persons with compromised immune systems from cancer and auto-immune diseases.

RE: First camp trip?

It's nose-high, so sleeping in it might be hard. You'll either roll out of be "down hill".:) Either way, have a great time.

RE: Which TT has the Best Kitchen and Why?

I have owned and cooked in 6 different campers...popup, hybrid, travel trailer, 2 different fifth wheels and now a motorhome. I could cook up a good meal in all of them...some, just a bit easier. The popup had a tiny fridge and 2 burners. That limited what we could do inside, so I mostly cooked outside under a canopy. The hybrid was a bit more challenging because the stove was directly across from the bathroom door. Again, most of it was done outside. A trailer is small...no matter how big it is, compared to a residential kitchen, it's small. The use of a burner also heats up the camper quickly, even in cold weather. It also produces lots and lots of steam, which produces condensation, which can produce lots of problems down the road. Each Thanksgiving, I fix a full holiday meal in our camper, or outside of our camper. Over the years, we have purchased some really good equipment that we carry with us...a grill, a flat-top griddle, a butane burner and a CampChef oven. These are my mobile kitchen essentials and I can use them anywhere. My suggestion is to look at a camper that has good storage and don't buy something because it says "airstream", but look for good quality vs investment cost. Plan to set up an outside kitchen that can be used in any weather. Good luck.

RE: Concerns About Going Full Time

Most folks spend several years getting ready to full-time, then several more months actually doing it. You seem to have gotten a wild-hair and just did it. If this doesn't work out like you had hoped, do you have a backup plan? Seems like if you can sell the camper and truck, you can hop right back into the rental market there in NYC pretty quickly. You are right, most "ladies" aren't going to want to go back to the marina and hop into the back of a truck, but.....if you find the right one. Winter will be your big test. If you can keep warm, keep things from freezing and enjoy it, you are pretty much there. The summers will also be trying when you are cooling the thing down. I hope you have found what you are looking for. You are only young once, so enjoy it.

RE: February trip south on the East Coast

It will be COLD until you get east enough to get the ocean breeze. Then it'll be cool. We HATE Myrtle Beach, just too much! Too much traffic, people, etc. We enjoy smaller parks and ocean destinations. If you like the crowded cities, try Myrtle Beach, but even North Myrtle is too much for me. Head a bit further south (warmer, too) and check out Hunting Island SP (outside Beaufort, SC). Campground right on the beach. Jekyll Island is really a fun trip, but you will also still be on the cool side in February. We were in Miami last year at the end of February and it was in the high 70s, but up in GA, it was 40 degrees. At home in the mtns of Va, it was 10! Gulf Shores, AL, Destin, FL, Pensacola, FL are all great visits. If you are wanting warm temps, you must head to south Florida and good luck getting a reservation there.
