RE: Run the USA is what?

My wife and I have a 24' TT for the last 6 years. We've used it for a lot of local camping, but also to go from Florida out to Arizona and Utah, as well as the Smoky Mountains in TN. Tows great with our Ram 1500. The camper has a GVWR of 5,000 pounds. I use an Anderson WDH mainly for sway control; easy to set up and not heavy. The camper has a queen bed and two bunks. Normally it is just my wife and me, but on occasion our daughter and son in law have joined us with no problem. Wouldn't hesitate to go cross country in a camper that size.

RE: November Honeymoon trip suggestions

Head south to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It will be beautiful ready for the holidays, the mountains are majestic. Lots of things to do and see in the area. Could also visit places in Kentucky on the way south. The crowds should be a little less as you are behind the leaf peepers but before the Thanksgiving bunch. Weather should be crisp. Plus a pretty easy drive from Chicago. You won’t be spending all your time driving. ^^^^ THIS ^^^^^ If you want a peaceful stay, consider Townsend, just south of Pigeon forge and Gatlinburg, although any of those locations would be great. You could spend a ton of time enjoying the Smoky Mountains National park.

RE: Travel Trailer Recommendations

Add Outdoors RV to your list, and if you boondock, look at them hard. larger tanks and beefier frames than most. This would be a good option.

RE: Rv Trip Wizard question

You use the RV Life App. Available Free in the app store. Middle tab on the bottom will bring up all of your planned trips. Ken Ken, I downloaded and installed the RV Life app. I wasn't aware it integrated with RV Trip Wizard. That's awesome! Does it use Google Maps as it's source mapping? If it does, your information just saved me a bunch of time! in your settings you can choose between Apple Maps and Google maps if you have an iPhone.

RE: Travel Trailer Recommendations

My 2013 Camplite 21BHS has been excellent and would fit your needs well with the exception of 4 season. However if you are dry camping in the winter, it may work; others do it. I tow mine with a 2009 Ram 1500 and have been all over the country. Unfortunately, since they are no longer made thanks to Thor; they can be difficult to find. I would look at a pre-Thor model, 2013 or older, possibly 2014. Look for the aluminum roof and aluminum floor to make sure the cost cuts aren't there.

RE: Verizon Cell Service at Grand Canyon Trailer Village?

We had no issues with Verizon at Trailer Village a few years ago.

Good Sam Club ID cards

I recently renewed my Good Sam membership for three years and now have a couple of questions after receiving my ID card. 1) Do they only give one ID card now? In the past, we've received two cards, one with my name and one with my wife's name. She was listed in the membership when we renewed. 2) Our old ID cards had the word "Deluxe" on the front. The new cards are gray, and just say "Good Sam Club" in white letters and "Members Save More" in yellow letters. I am assuming there is no longer a "Deluxe" membership and this is the correct card, but I want to make sure. Thanks, Doug

RE: East Tennessee

I'll also add a big recommendation for Townsend. We've been there many times and always enjoy it. We stayed at Big Meadows Family Campground and really liked it. In September we are going to try Little Arrow Campground. That is recently rebuilt and has new owners. Looks really nice. In any case, Townsend is nice and quiet, near the National Park (especially the Cades Cove area), and a short scenic drive away from Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. Big Meadows is probably the most "parking lot" like followed by Little Arrow. The KOA has a lot of trees and looks nice.

RE: Travel trailer built using aluminum frame

I believe older Camp-Lites were all aluminum, no wood at all. Correct. The Camplites are constructed of all aluminum framing, including a welded aluminum frame to include even the cabinetry, as well as an aluminum "chassis". On models prior to 2016 (I believe) the roof is aluminum. My Camplite is a 2013 and has been a really nice and reliable camper so far. It is a huge shame Thor killed it.

RE: Best RV route map

Does RV Trip Wizard provide low clearance information? iI did not see that stated clearly in their docs. It does flag low clearance areas on the map. To be honest, I'm not sure if it will route you around it or not.

RE: Best RV route map

RV Trip Wizard is the best in my opinion. I haven't figured out how to send the completed trip to my Garmin but the workaround for me is after I'm sure of all my planned stops for fuel and camgrounds, I recreate it manually on the Garmin. I do this in Google Maps as well and then send it to my phone so I have a backup just in case. RV Trip Wizard is worth the annual subscription price without a doubt. You can export the trip from RVTripWizard as a .GPS file and import it into basecamp. There is more info here: Export Instructions djsamual, I've tried that several times. I can export it to basecamp ok but it doesn't upload to my Garmin for some reason. Obviously I'm not doing something right. I don't mind doing it manually. I have all the time in the world. Glad you don't mind doing it manually. I've done it, but to be honest, I am surprised to see it work. basecamp is not very intuitive and I'm never sure if I can duplicate something I did correctly. :B

RE: Grand Canyon Now?

You could always stop at Williams if you are in the area. There should be spots there. Not as convenient as Trailer Village but looks nice there.

RE: Video: 5 Favorite Campgrounds in Southern Idaho

^^ This guy doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. Idaho stinks and isn't worth visiting. Please just...trust me. Thank you. Is it as bad as Utah and Wyoming? :B
