RE: Euerka Springs AR to Branson MO

The 62, 412, 65 is a good route to take. The hardest is getting onto 65 from 412. Sit back and enjoy the drive.

RE: going from Class A to TT or Fifth wheel

A couple years ago we went the other way, 5th wheel to Class A. Have not regretted one bit. The 5er was a large 35' had a 1 ton dully to pull it with. The truck road like a truck the wife was never happy with the ride. Even though I had the 5er for years sometimes the backing got to be a challenge I am glad that part is over. From me the trade to Class A was happy wife happy life.

RE: Roadside Assistance

When choosing a RA program you have to, I believe, look into whats covered and how. Example how far will they tow your unit, where will they tow your unit to. To me those are the important ones, I think there is a big difference between AAA and GS FMCA over those points. Check it out that way.

RE: Help finding Roadside assistance & benefit plan for me

As for roadside assistance you will hear a lot of con's but few pros for the Good Sam Roadside Assistance. I have had it for years and years have used it maybe a half dozen times. I have no complaints about it. They like all programs have limitations so just read what is and whats not covered. I also have GS Travel Assist, I am glad I have not had to use it. It seems well priced, as long as you follow the correct steps. I know at GS Rally's "SkyMed" always has a booth. They may be someone to compare plans with.

RE: Replacing dinette with free-standing table & chairs

At one point I had the RV table and chair set up. As for the fold up storage in the seat. I guess it was OK nothing special as the area was not to deep. It would hold a few towels or the grandkids toys. I did not want to make the table stationary so I screwed a plumbing pipe clamp to the floor (you do not need much) and strapped the table that way. Never had a problem.

RE: Wind Noise

I can not speak directly about the noise in your unit. My ACE (and others) the wind noise was coming from the front grill. The way Thor configured it aloud for the noise. They (Thor) had to send out replace grill screens which stopped the noise. I also get a noise when it rains. Some of the strangest things go on with MH. I would check with the folks at the Winnebago forums.

RE: Car dolly's what to look for?

I have a Roadmaster tow dolly, and am very happy with it. I pull many thousand miles a year with my KIA Sportage attached. It has the swivel pan that the tires set into. I have used three different type of tie downs. The first was the one that came with the dolly, it was totally adjustable. I thought it had to many moving parts. I then went to a total basket style I really liked how easy it was to attach, the problem was it started to show signs of ware to early in its life and the baskets just fit the tires. I am now using one that is a little more to put on but so far seems to do the job. You should already have a break controller for your other trailers so might as well stick with electric brakes. You will want brakes, good luck.

RE: SW Missouri to Lake Superior. Best route?

If you have the time, I would head to Dubuque via hwy 151 out of cedar rapids. I live in Branson and its about a 8 hours drive to Cedar Rapids via 44.54.19,H at center H is a great Ozark road. then 24 to 218 and to cedar rapids. At Dubuque the Mississippi River Museum https://www.rivermuseum.com is well worth stopping at. There is also the Cog Railway Elevator that's a must to see. On our way to Madison via 151 there's the House on the Rock built by Frank Loyd Wright. North of Madison is the Baraboo Circus Museum www.circusworldbaraboo.org and then do not forget Wisconsin Dells, Its a different version of Branson. From Madison then head up to Michagan, its really a great spot. One has to try the "Pasties" they are great eats.

RE: TriMark Door Handles - Please submit failures !

Just replaced my broken one with a Bauer. I was happy the wife was inside when it happened, as I was outside trying to get in.

RE: Travel Trailer dolly?

x2 When I bought my first 5th wheel we spent 5+ hours in a parking lot. Get some cones mark off areas try stupid things. Its a learning process and best to learn in a parking lot. The two of you have to work out hand signals because what you may tell husband by hand may mean something different to him. Or walkie talkies. Good luck and enjoy.

RE: branson mo

Thanks for pointing out some good point in Branson. Let me add a couple of not so well known spots. Branson Center Stage Bar and Grill on Friday and Sat has a to kill for prime rib. They smoke it, its the best tasting prime rib I have ever had. Its worth checking out. Although some feel it different, for the dollars spent the Dolly Parton Stampede and dinner show is the best value for all out money spent. If you are with kids or a small group go to McFarlands to eat. You have to ask for the "table that raises up". They have two tables that over your meal the table very very slowly will raise up. The whole thing is well worth it. Enjoy Branson

RE: Online shopping for parts and supplies

In the past I have had good luck with tweetes.com for a lot of stuff. But like said amazon has made shopping real easy.

RE: I-29 closure, Northern Missouri and Iowa

We just traveled the detour route yesterday. Took 229 out of St Joe then hwy36, to 75 north. At Nebraska City take hwy 2. The roads are good for the most part 4 lane but there is a two lane portion however traffic moves very well. Getting through Lincoln was a different story however. If you stay on 2 you go through the middle of town, there are signs for I 80 stick to the left and you miss down town. We did not and it was a mess.

RE: Branson MO RV Parks

Ya all come down!! Most all of the campgrounds in the Branson Area have FHU, the problem is most are very tight to get into. I would try Americas Best, however its out of the main stream, but most of the campgrounds are. The other two mentioned are great ones also. There is so much to see and do in Branson just come on down and enjoy.

RE: Only 4 out of 10 Missouri River crossings open

Interesting as I am leaving this morning from Branson to Lincoln Ne. We have changed the route about three times now. We now turn left at St. Joe. I feel sorry for all the people that are in the path of all the flooding going on both on the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.

RE: St Louis to Branson

You will not have any large grades to go down. When you enter the Branson area you will be getting off HWY 65 at the Hollister exit. I believe the signs will also read bus65. Collage of the Ozarks. You are going to want to take a right and then get in the left lane for a left turn at the light (on to 165) Stay in the left lane. Your GPS should do OK there, look at Google maps to kinda get an idea of where you are going. Welcome to Branson and have a great time, we have a lot of good shows going on with lots to do.

RE: Route suggestions Branson to Russellville, AR

Take HWY 7 sit back and enjoy the Ozarks. Yes its not a straight road but the other route suggest by Google is not much better. The worst part of the trip is getting through Harrison AR. If I remember correctly stay out of the right hand lane as its very tight and the curb right there.

RE: New mattress recommendations for not petite people?

We added a good foam topper, about 4" thick to the mattress. That made all the difference in the world. I think we got it at Sam's Club. The topper was longer than the RV queen but they are easy to cut to fit. The additional height of the bed we had to get a small step stool for my wife to get up into the bed. My wife and I are also not of the petite group.
