RE: Building RV park near McKinney TX, what would you want most?

Space, make the lots large Larger lots cost more for land, roads, pipe, taxes. Would you paid a extra 5 dollars a night for a larger lot.

RE: Building RV park near McKinney TX, what would you want most?

I know how expensive concrete is but with the type soil you have there all roads & pads should be concrete, imo. Concrete is very high today, and if the park is 60 to 100 miles from the concrete company very very high cost. But yet because the park is far from anywhere in the west and you are sleepy so you stop, but yet you want it cheap and a great site. If it is a couple bucks over the last park, you are writting him up as greedy.

RE: Campgrounds along or near Hwy 12 in Idaho

Pretty drive. I usually use Google satellite view to find pull off spots, but that road doesn't show too many of those. Must be hilly.Very few, we stay at a place, ok, poorly run this summer.

RE: RV park rates

It's amazing the lengths some will go to in order to squirrel away a nickel. The best I have seen lately was the couple in a new class C Dynamax Force who arrived late, took an undeveloped site using an honor system envelope near 3 different tent camping families, then thought they were going to run the onboard genny all night for the AC. This when there were dozens of electric sites unoccupied. When the gent was confronted about the noise of the genny and told about the electric sites, he even admitted he took the undeveloped site to save the additional $6.50 the electric site would have cost. Can you even run an onboard genny for 8 hours or so for an AC on $6.50 in fuel. :S $140K new super C + squeaking for $6.50 = priceless. Thats a sad story.Maybe if he has 50 cents you could have found 6 folks with a dollar for him.

RE: Is there a safe place to stay in Tucumcari?

RE: The Catwalk rebuilt

One of our favorite spots in New Mexico, the Catwalk National Trail is repaired and back in operation. This is a actual metal Catwalk built along the side of a canyon wall off Hwy US 180 about 60 miles north of Silver Springs. The walk is easy and leads you thru a cool narrow canyon up to an area of pools in the river with short falls. Good for a dip. We had visited several times and were planing another when the news reached use that flash floods in 2013 washed the catwalk away. I decided to check it's status tonight to find it has been rebuilt (for the third time) and has reopened. The catwalk Going north from Silver City or Deming? I urge you to check this place out. It's a short trip maybe an hour or two depending on whether you take a swim. Don't tell anybody where it is, I been using it for over 30 years. It is 35 miles from my cabin.

RE: Building RV park near McKinney TX, what would you want most?

In my opinion you are attempting to develop a park that has two incompatible client bases. Long term stays don't mix well with overnight and short term stays. Just a fact of the RV world. Do everything right and complete the first time. Building a few sites without the rest of the infrastructure such as bathrooms, office and any planned recreational facilities in place will just get you bad reviews and word of mouth. People don't want to stay where there is constant construction or incomplete facilities. Solid, well placed utilities, good access and good roads, clean well constructed common facilities, and good landscaping is what is needed to please the vast majority of guests. Everything else is optional.What do you want to pay a month, or week. And how much should you pay. Where in the country should this park be?

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I went to Idaho for a nice couple months next to fast water, then had to go for a death in Sioux Falls, that added 1200 miles each way. Then back to the water on the Salmon river. after two months came home to Az. I drove the last 1200 miles in two days pulling our little Ford. As long as I kept moving I was fine. When I stopped the wife wanted me to do things. Nev. is safe for old folks pulling something after 70.

RE: Soooo Tell Me About Quartzsite

We have never been. We would like to go this year since we have Red and the S&S back. We can do a long weekend there...Thursday to Sunday. Can you see most of it in a couple days? When is the best time to go? Where is the best places to stay? What's the weather like there then (boondocking, no AC)?In 1982 it was great, but today it is only 20% of what it was then.

RE: Salesman trying to talk me out of a Class C

So this salesman is trying to put me in a Class A instead of a C. He's got all kinds of reasons. Some of the Class A's he's showing me are less money, so he'll make less commission. But they are so HUGE! He tells me I'll hate the driving experience in a C, and the storage, etc. He's got me doubting myself, but I still think I want something a little easier to get around in. What's your take?The saleman must have sold the four door pickups. Where bigger is better. Wrong, most won't go into a garage. Plus they cost a lot more, just like most of the A's we don't want. I like slides, for get 40 ft. long and where you have to walk up six ft. to get in one.

RE: House Fire

Bonded/insured? I don't know about Supercharge's home but I live in S.E. Texas was flooded because of Harvey. This area was flooded by workers throughout the country and there are hundreds of instances of shoddy work, being paid before work was completed, disappeared with peoples money. People were desperate to get back in their homes and did not take the necessary cautions when hiring. Most, if any, were neither bonded or insurance. Speaking to the BBB or cities or law enforcement didn't help because the workers would just move on to another community. Home Depot, Lowe's and other hardware/lumber stores parking lots were full every moment of time with signs stating their specialty.The man who was doing the job was very good, did my daughts house also. I just hope to get it sold this fall for lots of gold.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

I used to think that 70 was old too. Having had experience as a camp host for years, I find that who the driver is, the driver's health, personality, and patience, and experience is as much as a determinate of good driving as much as age. If your physician says your healtlhy and you are physically able to drive and tow, you should be OK. What does your opthalmologist say aobut your eye health. Can you get somseone to "check you out" by riding along, following you, and observing you manipulate your vehicles? When camp hosting (we also worked a boat launch) we watched loads of people back their trailers up. I think experience and ego are the biggest factors in a person's ability. I have seen 40 year olds take 20 min to situate their TT and an 85 year old guy, who got out, took a look at the site then backed up once and was situated. The big factor was experience with both of them. Unfortunately the 40 year old refused help with directing and backed up into a post smashing his brand new toy hauler back. Couldn't get the toys out to play with. There are a lot of people out there to help you. Few will refuse if you ask. I love it! It is more about skill and experience than age. I realize there is a point to quit but I think most people will know when that is. I am 74 and can still drive and back up just fine, but I do realize that I am getting older so I try and be extra careful. I don't put in the hours or miles that I did when I was young. I used to think that 550 miles was a perfect day and 800 was doable, now I think 350 is a big day! Ability, experience, and common sense is more important than age.Ed I see you are from Rowan, Mrs. Farran was one of my teachers. I went to Rowan now and then to play pool, we played baseball there and basket ball every year. I didn't know that RV's made it to Rowan yet. Nice to run across someone that knows how high corn can grew. Do the kids still steal water melons from you farmers.

RE: House Fire

Is your counter top guy bonded? His insurance should cover it not yours. Unless he works directly for you.His dumb employed lied.

RE: House Fire

Sorry to hear thank..... Glad the damage wasn't extensive. Smoke and water damage are usually biggest issue IF structure isn't burnt to the ground Counter top installers.... Don't they have insurance??It shouldn't be more than $5000

House Fire

I had to take back a 5500 sq. ft. house two months back, it needed a couple more months to finsh and put on the market. I left early a couple days ago and left the man and helper putting in counter tops in the bath areas. It looks like the helper went out on the deck and had a smoke which wasn't allow, but I guess he needed it. He had to stop early so put his smoke in in a large potted tree wooden box. I got a call and went down after dark and saw the damage, it burned the box up, fell on patio roof burn up the roof about 4x8 dropped down to the bed room below that. Fire department had come, those boys put it out, they like them axes. Broke a 5 x 9 all glass front door, cut holes in three rooms. Pumped lots of water. Ran down three floors. Called my ins. man, he says you have a $16,000 deductable, hello. Most of the house is concrete and steal, told him we can fix it for maybe 5 grand. He said do it. So it will delay my RV trip some. But no one was there to be hurt, so just another day at the office I guess. Grand kids still got there dollar Friday for good week at school. Great life.

RE: Is 70 the age to stop towing

Its been just over 2 years since this thread began. It should be retitled "Is 72 the age to stop towing?"I was thinking I was in my twentys when I first posted this, time flies. I starting think before I get my RV out this year that maybe I'm getting to old. I would like to hear when is to old for me to.

RE: Motorcycle Lift on Rear Rad

Has anyone installed a motorcycle lift on a rear radiator coach? I'm just wondering if the heat from the radiator causes problems with the bike, and if the bike causes problems with airflow. The previous owner of mine installed a CruiserLift, but maybe it didn't work out and that is why he traded - not sure.I new a guy who put a HD 74 on one and when he got there it was a trail bike.
