RE: Camping Lights

I probably don’t get out as much as some here, but while I’ve noticed a lot of variety in campsite lighting, I’ve never seen anything that actually affected me significantly. Maybe I’ve just been lucky, or tolerant, and I generally don’t stay many places that pack people in like sardines. Some folks have very spartan campsites, while others seem to fill the entire space with displays, decorations, outside furniture, canopies, equipment & appliances. Lighting seems like just another aspect of that phenomenon.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Cocoa/Canaveral problem solved! On a whim I checked Jetty Park again just now and we grabbed 3 nights there. We'll go with that! Its been about 4 or 5 years, but I thoroughly enjoyed my stays at Jetty Park when I was in the area for some spring training baseball. Team moved, so you don’t have that option, but not only are you on the ocean, but you abut the shipping channel that the large cruise ships go in & out of. Also, check the Kennedy Space Center website for its Rocket Launch Schedule, good viewing from the beach if you’re there at the right time.

RE: RV parks around Stuart, Florida

Phipps Park has some nice campsites on the Okeechobee Waterway. Not a resort, just a pretty good county park in Stuart. There is also an almost adjacent COE Campground .

RE: RV Park Reviews

Just finished trying to find CGs around Stuart Florida - the old maps were very easy to use - the "old way" always gave me the info I needed, literally at my fingertips, to do what I needed to do. I was so frustrated just now I almost deleted the site!Waterfront sites at Phipps Park are pretty good, if that is any help.

RE: No Warranty on your RV? Don't buy new?

I am new here and I am surprised most of you guys recommend not getting a new RV with warranty.I bought new, partially because of the warranty. Some of the folks recommending buying used are capable of dealing with many warranty issues themselves, but not everyone has the time, skill or inclination for that. Others like the savings from letting the original owner take the big depreciation hit. What’s available new & used will also vary depending on what your preferences are and where you live. Consider your options, and do what works best for you.

RE: Class Bs with Twin Beds other than the Travato 59K

Roadtrek (and others) offered twin beds that became a king or queen bed by moving a few cushions, with storage under the twin bed platforms. By the time I bought at the end of the 2013 model year, the electric sofa option seemed to be overtaking the twin beds in popularity. There should be some available in the previously-owned market.

RE: New coffee maker

I usually camp with electrical hookups, so power isn’t normally a consideration, but I prefer a coffeemaker with an insulated carafe. No electricity needed to keep it hot, and no flavor loss from too much time on the warmer. I’m not much of a coffee snob, so it doesn’t take more than that to keep me happy.

RE: Push to privatize National Park Service campgrounds

A few years back the Supreme Court "Citizens United" gave BIG MONEY the right to use that money to control our government and nothing has been the same since (money=speech - the more you have the louder your voice).The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision isn’t really relevant to the issue of private management of National Parks, but that is not an accurate description of the Court’s decision. The Court merely held that the government could not suppress a book, film, or other communication because of its political content. Here’s a link to the decision for those who wish to read it, or google “Citizens United” for the plentiful commentary on it. It’s a somewhat controversial decision, but consistent with centuries of 1st Amendment law.

RE: Help selecting East Coast location with lots of variables...

I second the Virginia State Parks suggestion. Seems to be in the right price range, not too far away, and lots of Parks with cabins.

RE: Mystery

No maybe Trumps fuzzy math numbers do work for him LOLThis is the 2nd thread I’ve come across today, out of just a handful of threads I’ve read, in which Crawford has gone well out of his way to inject his political views into an unrelated topic. Does he really think anyone comes here for that, or anyone else’s political preferences?

RE: Interior windshield privacy curtain and door screen

I’ve used Eclipse Sunshades for my SUV & the Roadtrek, and am quite happy with both. They are custom made by model, and I see they have the ProMaster listed for 2018 models, but apparently not for 2019.

RE: Camping on my lot against zoning law

I recommend contacting an attorney whose practice includes zoning issues. If you bring your situation to the attention of the local government, it may be hard pressed to ignore your non-compliance, even if the normal practice is to only act in response to a complaint, especially if you’re discharging sewage in a prohibited manner. If you already know you’re in violation, you may be on borrowed time, but there may be options. Probably worth it to find out on your schedule, not when the government decides to act.

RE: Campgrounds n Parks on the Maryland coast help

I’ll second the recommendation for Assateague State Park in Maryland. Probably no sites with electric available unless you get extremely lucky with a cancellation. However, generator hours are pretty extensive, and if the weather cooperates enough that you don’t need the A/C at night, you should be OK. Might be tight on the weekend, but I’ve done pretty well on short notice Sunday - Thursday.

RE: Washington DC

METRO is by far the best way to get around, and Cherry Hill has an orientation with plenty of info to assist you. That said, if you’re going to do the Monuments, Memorials & Museums on the National Mall (you should), there’s quite a bit of walking between locations, and Washington, DC can be pretty hot in summer. Pace yourself, don’t try to do too much in one day. If you do the National Zoo (not on Mall, but located between two Red Line METRO Stations), Pro Tip: Get off at Cleveland Park when arriving, and depart via the Woodley Park Station. That way it is downhill both ways.

RE: The cove gore va

Haven’t been there, but the most recent review (November 2016) at Campground Reviews (formerly RV Park Reviews) says there is “a mile or more of rough gravel road” going in.

RE: 2001 Dodge Roadtrek Rear Window Latch

I have scoured the internet with no luck. Roadtrek is currently out of business so no relief there. A new owner emerged from the receivership, Rapido SAS, a French company that produces the Westfalia RVs. They have announced plans to reopen Roadtrek soon, but it’s going to be a smaller operation with fewer employees. Not sure how knowledgeable the work force will be about the older Dodge models, but I think the latch may be similar to that used on more recent models. They are probably backlogged with inquiries that arose while they were in receivership, but you may eventually be able to get some info. Check the website.

RE: Need overnight near Danville VA

This is what Campground Reviews (formerly RV Park Reviews) lists as within 25 miles of Danville. Slim pickings, IMHO, and some not very recent reviews. If you were coming from the east or north, I’d suggest checking the Corps of Engineers campgrounds on Kerr Lake Resevoir, but that’s about 75 miles east of Danville. There are some COE parks about 50 miles northwest of Danville on Philpott Lake. Haven’t been there, but they are rated pretty well.

RE: Has anyone else panicked after they bought a trailer?

I’m not a trailer guy, but buyers remorse is common. Most of us only make a few big dollar purchases - house, car, and for some a RV - so it’s natural to worry about messing up something that important. I was more than a little nervous about driving a larger vehicle and spending a pretty good chunk of money, even though I was pretty sure I’d gotten a good deal on a Class B. That uneasy feeling usually passes when you realize that the reasons you made the purchase are still valid, and outweigh the subsequently manufacturered doubts. It appears you did your due diligence, looked around, stuck to your budget, and are ready to go. Doing relatively easy trips at first might also have a calming effect. Enjoy.

Switching Refigerator Modes?

I’m usually at campgrounds that have electrical hookups (at least), running the refrigerator on AC. When traveling I normally use DC. I may soon spend some time at a park without electric, so I plan on mostly using the propane option, which I haven’t previously needed (it works). However, the generator rules are pretty liberal, and if I need the air conditioner I’d be using the generator for a significant part of the day/evening. Is it worth it to switch the refrigerator to AC if the generator is in use, or do you lose cooling efficiency by stopping & starting so that it’s better to run on propane continuously? Want to keep my beverages cold!

RE: Roadtrek has new owner

A bit more here: The company intends to scale back production and occupy just one of the four manufacturing plants operated by Erwin Hymer Group, with plans to hire an estimated 100 employees once production resumes, then expand to as many as 200 within a year to 18 months. It is still in talks with the landlord, so Reuer did not want to disclose the location. The CEO also said the company will honour all Roadtrek warranties for vehicles sold prior to the receivership, which was a concern among consumers, and that it expects to be able to produce 1,000 vehicles per year. Sounds like they’re starting small, but honoring warranties could be a big help to recent buyers.
