RE: Routing

Avoid I 35 around Dallas, Waco, Austin, and everywhere else. If you go through Carthage you may as well go through Timpson, Tenaha, Bobo and Blair. Just so you can say you did. (A really old song by Tex Ritter) All kidding aside all those roads are good. Might catch some fall foliage. The region just has rolling hills, very lush and green. No cactus or tumbleweeds.

RE: This happened today

Yeah I confused myself. I was looking at Landmarks and then got sidetracked on Redwoods. Did y'all have the slide in a slide bedroom? Any issues?

RE: Low Flow Water Pump for Truck Camper

X3 on the pressure causing the splashing. You will have the same pressure at the valve as at the discharge of the pump, until you open the valve. Maybe some minimal frictional losses in the pipe. I think I would replace the pump with whatever you like. Is the sink valve a conventional residential looking valve, or one of the little black flip handle types?

RE: Truck build out for

Just for grins I'd go the F550 with a nice aluminum utility bed. Sure it rides rough for going to the grocery store. That is a perfect excuse for a lightly used sports car.

RE: Alabama State Park reservation system is awful

^^^It might be interesting to drive through a park that has no openings on a weekend to see if they all showed. Humankind being what it is, I bet there is a segment of our population that reserves a site well in advance so that if just on a whim they "might" go camping.

RE: Flat tire on SW Truck while carrying a TC?

Back in the 30's, my 30's, which was the 1980's, I had a light duty F250. It had 7.50x16 tube type tires. I had a Tejas 8.5 ft cabover on it. No clue what it weighed. I didn't know what a CAT scale was. Had a flat on I-25 crossing Platte River at Douglas WY. I didn't know I had a flat. A passing car was pointing at it. No drama that I recall. There is a do-dad that fits over the top of a jack that has a half circle welded to it to fit an axle better. I think I saw it on Amazon. Didn't want to pay their price. A short pipe nipple welded to half of a 3 inch?? pipe would work.

RE: This happened today

Based on my experience, if she wants new, you'd better get new! LOL Keep us updated on your progress. edit add...wasn't there some discussion about how thick the roof decking is on Redwoods? If you can do it safely, this would be a good time check. Ok Brent, Looks like its either 3/8" or 1/2".. with foil paper.. then 6" or so of insulation... That sounds pretty good to me. It has to be thin enough to bend for the arch, but not too thick that it will pull staples or screws. Either one should be strong enough to walk on. If you were to go back with a Redwood which would you get? I'm kinda liking the Oshkosh, or maybe Rainier.

RE: This happened today

Oh man y'all are fortunate no one was hurt. It's a long drive for you but PPL in Dallas has 2 fairly new Redwoods on their lot. pplmotorhomes.com You going to miss any races?

RE: starting to look at trucks

What have you got against a F250? I don't know what the standard engine is in a F250. If it's the 6.2 you would be good to go.

RE: Roaming and boondocking in Mexico

Several posters reference Baja. My perception is that is quite different than the miles and miles of border of Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

RE: Your thoughts. Thor Redwood?

There is a VanLeigh model with paint. I saw it on their website yesterday. Maybe called Beacon. I don't see many Vanleighs at all. I think the last one was actually at Richmond. Mostly what I see for sale used around Houston, at least at PPLMOTORHOMES.COM., are used DRV's and a lot of Keystones. They do have a nice looking Cardinal Estate with paint.

RE: Your thoughts. Thor Redwood?

After the heat 2 years ago, we got tickets under the overhang. Then they went to night racing. LOL That is a loong haul from Houston just to watch cars go around. We try to combine it with some Smokey Mtn. trout fishing and some genealogy work at the Library of Virginia in Richmond. I'll look some more at Vanleigh. I don't recall seeing any used ones for sale, but I haven't been looking either.

RE: Your thoughts. Thor Redwood?

If it was August of last year, and in the Medallion Campground it was me...Or at least there were 2 of us there.. I was the one with Black and Silver It was the spring race. Start Your Engines Campground, off Copperhead Road. Not me.... BUT I am sitting in Richmond VA as I type this for this weekends activities !! Hush yo mouth! LOL I have Commonwealth mezzanine tickets and spot #2 with 30amp and water at North Laburnam. Been there at that spot 4 years. Montana HC was half packed. Son in law was diagnosed with oral cancer and started chemo today. Wife says we ain't going nowhere. Daughter will need help with that 8 month old grandbaby. Hope somebody besides Kyle Busch wins. GO SHR. We really dislike #18 as well ! ! ! I am on turn 3 catch fence,,, new spots they opened last year... 50amp.. water, sewer.. PRIORTIES.... Gotta take care of family, My best to your son in law and daughter, its never an easy fight,... know, my wife was diagnosed with Uterine cancer last January.... Its a fight... Ill be here again in September, maybe you will make that race, we will crack open a cold beverage to celebrate ! I guess it was 2 years ago at the spring race when it was so hot. I was coming out of the stands after the race and a golf cart about ran over me. I looked and Kyle Bush's wife was the front passenger. Kyle was sitting on the backward back seat. White as a ghost, arms limp, and head down. They were headed to medical. He looked really bad. Last year was cold wasn't it? We got snowed on in Smokey Mtn. NP, then sleeted on at Bristol. Yeah anybody but #18.

2 to 5 years seems a sweet spot.

RE: Your thoughts. Thor Redwood?

Vanleigh 5th wheels is Owned by Tiffin Lance was bought by REV Group (Monaco, Holiday Rambler, Fleetwood, etc.). Tiffin is just motorhomes as far as I know. Newmar as well. Winnebago has some smaller 5th wheels. What I've seen doesn't do much for me. SO . . . . so far we found that the Van Leigh made by Tiffin are the only *affodrable* Rv manufacturer that are privately pwned?? I walked through a few at the RV Show, they are nice, but I was not overly impressed with them I'm keeping my eyes open for used DRV's, maybe Landmarks, and maybe Redwoods. Full body paint required. 17.5 wheels and residential refrig as well.

RE: Little Rock AR to Harrisburg PA

I would try to work in Bluegrass Parkway if you haven't done it. Maybe a distillery tour. Makers Mark or Woodford Reserve. I just did I-76 west bound from I-99. Not a good drive in torrential rain. Maybe pick a US highway and follow it east. US60, US62, etc.
