Aftermarket Drivers Seat

Hello All, Just wondering if anyone has replaced their factory drivers seat with a more comfortable aftermarket one and how you like it. I have a class c Winnebago Minnie Winnie 26B. I hate the seat, probably because i'm 6'3" and 250lbs factors into it. If you have, what brand/model did you get and has it made a difference? Again this seat needs to be applicable to a Class C. Thanks very much.

RE: Rocky Mountains camping

Hello, We are going to Rocky Mountains National Park this September. We have never been there before and in researching campgrounds it seems like the only option is private campgrounds. I was hoping for something more "National Park" style campgrounds. Are there any or is there just private ones? Would love to know your favorite campgrounds in the area and why you like it. Would also love to know your favorite hikes and things to see. We are in our early 50's and in good shape for not to difficult hikes. Our RV is a 26' Winnebago class C. Thanks!!! There are 4 CG inside RMNP; Moraine Park, Glacier Basin, and Aspenglen are all on the east side outside of Estes Park. Timber Creek is on the west side outside of Grand Lake. The problem is that September is a very popular time to be in Rocky and will have been fully reserved by now. AND...Glacier Basin closes right after Labor Day, so it's not available for most of the month. Timber Creek on the west side would be the best bet as it is all first come/first served; reservations not accepted. And your class C is small enough for most of the sites there. It was originally built in a forest area with some size limits, but the trees have been cut down due to beetle kill a number of years ago. There are some USFS CG outside of Estes Park to the south along CO 7/72, known as the Peak to Peak Highway. Might be able to find a reservation in one of those, but keep in mind that they start to close about mid-September. Olive Ridge, Peaceful Valley, and Camp Dick are all CG to consider depending on when in September you plan to be out here. The commercial RV parks/CG will likely be fully reserved or close to it, for September. Look into Estes Park Campground at Mary's Lake; it is operated by the Town of Estes Park Recreation and Parks Department and is the lowest priced of all of the commercial CG in the area ($47/night for FHU). There's also W/E sites there as well as dry camping. Common water and a dump station there as well. Over on the west side by Grand Lake, there's 3-4 USFS CG in the area that may work for you. They are Stillwater, Green Ridge, Sunset Point and Arapaho Bay around the lakes in the area. There's also a few commercial CG/RV Parks on the west side as well. Thom02099--THANK YOU for all that info!! I was not expecting anything so complete!! You have given us lots of research to do :)

RE: Rocky Mountains camping

We stayed at Timber Creek for several days -- the west side is nice, but there is a lot more to do on the east side of the park. I guess that is why it is so crowded (and also because it is closer to Denver). I did not want to go to the east side -- I hate crowds -- but fortunately I was "persuaded" by DW. We had to stay at Mary's Lake -- as RV parks go, it was pretty good. We had a great time on the east side -- I am glad we went, even though it was so busy. For whatever it's worth, here is our blog post: RMNP in September Thank you for that info, I hate crowds as well :)....will definitely be reading your blog!!
