Or a combination of some of the suggestions,like 104 over to Fulton, then pick up Ny 3, up through Watertown, all the way to Plattsburgh, then take the Cumberland Head ferry to Grand Isle, to Rt 2 all the way to Maine.
Certainly not the fastest, or shortest, but quite possibly the most scenic.
What weight is listed on the Title you have for this trailer. That is what the Law Enforcement is going to go by when the trailer license is run through their system check.
What is the model of the trailer.
What will happen is Law Enforcement will possibly look over your way when passing you and your trailer and see the trailer breakaway cable not hooked up and it will go down hill from there for you... If all of this is mounted on the trailer tongue I would most definitely have it all hooked up working or not...
If your trailer becomes disconnected on public roads and causes alot of damage or worse then your Insurance may NOT go in your favor if everything is not up to legal status.
You know how all of that goes haha...
Our State also requires a State Inspection Sticker for trailers that weigh a certain weight and have Brakes installed. If we have an expired Safety Inspection Sticker we can usually be allowed to pull the trailer to a Inspection Station if we call ahead and let the garage know we are in-route.
Even my small utility trailer I have here has a valid State License tag on it... Its title says EW is 700lbs and GW is 2990lbs. All it requires is working safety lights
Roy KenX2, I have exactly the same trailer.
thinking Cleveland, Ohio thru Peen, New York, Vermont and back. No experience here. Any help, ideas suggestions would be most helpfulMay I assume the "Peen"is actually meant to be, Pennsylvania? If so, why go through Penn, unless there is something specific that you want to see there?Other than the short distance around Erie.
Military campgrounds are open to active duty, retired military, and some civilian DOD employees. If you served less than 20 years or were dishonorable discharged you are not eligible.True, but there are more, like Reserves & National Guard in training, for a few.
You can find more here, http://www.militarycampgrounds.us/
While not an official Military site, they do have a lot of info, some of which is copied from official sites.
You got me on that one, I have used some of our Military Campgrounds, but wasn't aware that Canadian Military could use them.
I know some former American military members that don't meet the requirements to use them. :h
Maybe it's just me, but your itinerary seems awfully ambitious, unless you're just going to do the Clark Griswold headbob, I mean you could easily spend 4-5 days at some of those,as we did in Grand Canyon, Zion, Moab area,not to mention a LOT of driving time.
We went at a relaxing pace & saw all we wanted, we certainly could have spent less time at some, but I don't think we would have enjoyed it as much.
My favorite on Skyline DR
Thanks for the link. I noticed you are from Toledo Ohio. We will be leaving from Maumee Ohio. Do you have a favorite scenic route to the entrance of Sky Line Drive? I have been looking at 250 then 50, but have no idea of how scenic that route is.Loft Mountain is also one of our favorites, sites are of good size with nice separation, since it is first come first serve, be sure to get there early, and Mon-Thur if possible, it gets pretty busy on weekends.
Which ever way you choose to get to Va., make your way to I-66 so you can enter the Northern end of Skyline Dr at Front Royal, there are 4 Cg's on Skyline Dr. Big Meadows is another favorite with fairly large sites, but they don't have the separation that Loft Mtn has.
While we are not full timers, I do agree with the others, Rent a type of RV that you think you MIGHT want, try different camping scenarios, full hookups, partial hookups, dry camping, (no hookups), Commercial camp grounds, National Forests, BLM, point is, Don't blindly jump into anything you'll be sorry for later, after all, it is a complete lifestyle change.
Good luck, I hope it works out for you.
Glacier campground on the west side is a good choice for rv park. You are in trees nice people run it and a Mile from the entrance. We live up here in Helena MT. This our go to no muss no fuss choice and we'll priced. And you can gET a site when you want it mostly. Or best go to Kananaskis country in Alberta, but that's another story. Google the name. Good park.
Will Glacier CG fit a 42 ft 5'er?
ThanksWe've stayed there twice, can only remember a couple sites that you MIGHT fit into, there are only water & electric sites.
Give them a call to see if you'll fit. http://www.glaciercampground.com/
Only downside to bus tour over your toad or tv is that you are doing the Going To The Sun Road on THIER schedule, not yours.That is exactly why we didn't do the Red Bus, I hate being on someone else's schedule, but if it doesn't bother you, it might be a good choice.
My RV came with them,and I wouldn't be without them.
As for the problems that BB_TX mentioned, flapping or water pooling on top, that tells me that they're not adjusted properly, when the slide is fully extended, the topper should be taught, and not sagging.
I have never heard mine flapping or had water laying on them.
Just don't try to drive up Mt. Washington. In ANYTHING! Take the train! It looks good at the top, and at the bottom. But the inbetweens!!! Especially with the buses on it!Why not? That's what the Auto Road is for, easy to do in a car, NOT for an RV, in fact IIRC, there is a size restriction, you do have to use some common sense, low gear Up & Down, to keep from over heating your brakes. There are numerous pull outs, to cool your brakes & to allow on coming vehicles to get by, a very scenic road.
We did the Cog Railway one day, then went around and up the Auto Road the next.
We are heading to Glacier state park in Montana in July. Was on line looking at their campgrounds and looking for opinions on which one to stay at. We have a 26 foot class C. We will probably stay for at least 3 nights.
Thanks in advance for your opinions and thoughts.Just to nit pick a little, Glacier is a National Park, Not a State Park, however we all got the idea, as coolmom42 said, check this site, https://www.nps.gov/glac/index.htm.
We too loved Two Medicine on the East side, it is first come first serve, so get there EARLY in the morning & wait till the site (or a site) you want opens, also a note, there are NO hookups, but there is a dump station & water fill.
This was our site; http://images12.fotki.com/v216/photos/7/1474187/13835297/photo48-vi.jpg height=450 width=600
Rt 2 is a good road, wide 2 lane, yes to most of the above, small towns, scenic countryside, not all that twisting & winding, casual drive, we did it in a 30' with toad & dolly.
Before we went that way, I asked the same questions, after we went that way I found there was absolutely nothing to worry about.
