RE: Rails vs pucks vs gooseneck mount

If I had it to do over I would go straight to the Goosebox. Get the OEM prep for the gooseneck ball hole.

RE: Louisiana to Hershey, Pa. Which Route????

Hills should be no issue. Just remember when you stop in Winchester to stow your firearms in the camper before crossing into Maryland. Oh the irony.

RE: Tie downs for Ram 3500 Duelly

Torklift told me to just drill another hole in the extensions 1 inch farther back. No problem. I did.

RE: Looking to upgrade (more room)

Yep I've got about 3/4" clearance loading my Bigfoot. I believe I would call Bigfoot and see when they are going to start building one with a slide. Supposedly in the works.

RE: Southeast Texas to the Smoky Mountains

Shady Pines Rv Park on Hwy 67 just west of Texarkana is usually our first stop. Tom Sawyers is good. After that it depends on how fast you want to get there.

RE: I-40 West of Memphis

Last time I was on it it was pouring rain. Someone spun out in the median, troopers blocked the left lane. I slowed down and turned on my flashers. 18 wheeler apparently didn't see what was happening and almost ran over the trooper. Be careful in the rain. Road was good though.

RE: campground in Gulfport mississippi

Hollywood Casino in Bay St Louis or Cajun RV park in Gulfport. I second Hollywood. I don't have any experience with Cajun. ^^Same here. It's been awhile since we stayed at Hollywood. Only issue I remember was some of the back-ins were on the wrong side...what I call a blind back-up, can't see anything.

RE: I10 Fl. to Ca.

^^^Actually driving across the I-10 Lake Charles bridge is no issue. The problem is that many people think it is about to fall in the river, based on engineering reports. If you have to drive through Houston at rush hour use loop 610 or Beltway 8 (toll).

RE: front cap oxidation

Try 3m Marine Restorer and Wax with a random orbit buffer with a cutting pad of wool or foam.

RE: insurance questions

Where did the OP or anyone else get the idea that insurance on a truck provided ANY coverage for a camper? That would not be true for most insurance policies. You need a separate, additional policy.....Period. I got that idea from my State Farm agent. We all don't live in New York.

RE: I10 Fl. to Ca.

You will hit some rough roads at Sulphur Louisiana (whoop de doos) and Orange Texas (construction). Also the I-10 high bridge over the Calcasieu River at Lake Charles Louisiana is rated as one of the worst bridges in the US. Some companies require employees to use loop 210.

RE: Grand Design purchase

Maybe Holiday World in Alvarado. You might get a decent price, but their service is terrible, at least in Houston. Look on their website. Hwhrv.com

RE: Questions and Opinions on Rigs

I would do a 3.73 if you go RAM, with the Aisin transmission. Look at the 1st gear ratios on the transmissions. I heard or read the Aisin has a low 1st gear. On the road you can always drop it down a gear if needed.

RE: Clingmans Dome and Cades Cove Smoky Mountains

I have used Elkmont with my cabover. The Little River trail going upstream would be great for the kids. Easy walking, wide trail. If you do the Cades Cove road they close it a couple mornings a wweek for bicycles only. Ask about it. Also if you get bummed out on the Cades Cove Road there is a shortcut to exit the loop, or actually just make it shorter. We like Elvira's Cafe and Hillbillies Cafe in Wear Valley. Gatlinburg is a mess.

RE: need new tires

I had Firestone OEM on a new 1975 Olds Cutlass Salon. Two blow outs on the Atchafalaya Swamp bridge on I-10. No more Firestones. I think that is when they went broke and Bridgestone bought them. I never had the new Goodyear Endurance, but my Maxxis were great and currently everything (boat, 5th, utility trailer) has the new Carlisle. No issues.

RE: Fall trip to Kentucky

Drive at least some of the Bluegrass Parkway. The horse farms are beautiful. I would also do a tour of a couple distilleries. Makers Mark and Woodford Reserve. Beautiful grounds, interesting distilling process, and I think Woodford has a lunch available. Woodford also had a tasting room that had examples of different stages of the process.

RE: Bigfoot fiberglass shell

You have to look far and wide. I drove from Houston to Maryland for mine. But...I am seriously considering selling it. If you're interested PM me.

RE: Induction cooktop amps?

Thanks for the info. I usually cook outside whenever possible, but looks like the Honda's would be OK if required.

RE: directtv from home to rv?

It's 5 hours away. I'll see if I can get that young salesman to climb up there and get me a better description.
