RE: Rocky Mountain National Park entrance reservation

To make the most of our three days, I secured a reservation for our first day for 1-3pm (the only time left available), knowing we'll be setting up camp in the morning. Unless you enter the lottery (and win) the night before your desired visit, you're not getting into the park with this exception: If you want to use Bear Lake Road without a reservation, you have to clear the entrance station before 5am and for the rest of the park excluding the Bear Lake Corridor, you need to arrive before 9am.

Rocky Mountain National Park entrance reservation

Last time out West, we camped in Grand Lake and loved it. In three weeks we check in to Spruce Lake CG near the East entrance. Has anyone dealt with the reservation system. It looks like there are two options: Bear Lake Drive or not Bear Lake drive. We've never been there, so we don't know which to purchase. We have three days to play July 4, 5, and 6 checking out the 7th. Those of you that know Estes Park and the eastside or have had to deal with this new system, I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks!

RE: What must we do in Colorado?

No matter how many times I post on RV.net, I'm always blown away by the knowledge, passion, and attention to detail of those who reply. Thank you so much for sharing your expertise-- folivier for the road closure warning, Thom 02099 for the detailed, painful and personal analysis of the wildfire damage, and the rest of you guys for your suggestions whether it be Jeep trails, fishing spots or campgrounds. 4Runner, as always, you're advice is on point and invaluable. I sent you a PM with a link to a rough draft of our route. If you have the time, we'd be grateful for your opinion. Thanks again everyone!

RE: What must we do in Colorado?

Goducks, we only need two sites a night. My daughter and her husband pull a camper behind their truck. We drag a Wrangler behind our MH.

What must we do in Colorado?

The mountains are calling and we must go. Last summer, our trip to Yosemite and Oregon was beautifully interrupted by the birth of our first grandson. We're definitely leaving Florida and heading West this summer with our focus on Colorado. We have done Durango, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Mesa Verde, Littleton, Red Rocks, Ouray, Ridgway into Telluride, Silverton, Grand Lake, and Vail and loved all of it. This summer, I can see us revisiting Ouray and Last Dollar Road into Telluride just to share that with my son-in-law. We're also both fishing fanatics, so that will be a priority. We live an hour from Disney and five minutes from the World's Most Famous Beach, so we don't like crowds. That said, though I know Estes Park will probably be crowded in July (we stayed on the West side for that reason last time out), we really want to add the East side of RMNP and Crested Butte and any other scenic byways you might recommend. A friend just posted pictures of Loveland Pass, which looks appealing as well. I'd love any input from you experts (4Runnerguy Ken I hope you're listening)out there not only on destinations, but scenic routes to connect them as well. We'll have our Jeep and my daughter's 4x4 truck, kayaks, bikes and hiking boots. Thanks so much for any advice you can share with us.

replacing luggage bay latches

I have a 2007 class A Itasca MH 35J. I went to Youtube to see how to replace the luggage bay latches, and it looked simple enough: two screws to detach and then replace each latch, two latches per compartment but my latches look like they're riveted onto the cargo bay doors. Anyone else run into this problem? Do I drill them out and purchase new rivets and a rivet gun or drill them out and replace with screws? Any advice greatly appreciated.
