RE: Drinking Campground Water...

Ten years full time drink the water everywhere that it's tested and passed as potable. You can always add a shot of Knob Hill or CC to purify and improve the taste. Good point. That's my kind of thinking. We generally have bottled water on hand if the campground water is that bad. But it's always been good enough for coffee.

Aluminum Wheels

Thinking about getting aluminum wheels for the RV. What are the pro's & cons of such a decision? Cost is definitely a factor and the looks are better, but are there any other advantages/disadvantages. I feel that the improved look is worth so much, but if I'm risking other issues down the road is the transition worth it. Your thoughts.

RE: Phoenix Cruiser electric couch in slide.

Under the bed, which is on the slide, is the folding mechanism, motor & such. Never really gave it a thorough look to see exactly what is there. Building a unit with storage to sleep/sit on sound like a great idea, but foremost I think comfort is the major concern closely followed the ease of setting it up/taking down. Our sofa opens & closes with the flip of a switch and is comfortable both as a sofa & as a bed. At least as comfortable as a sofa/bed can be. Sorry to be so vague but I won't be able to look for a couple of weeks, as our unit is in storage, when we prepare for our next trip.

RE: Winging it on your travels

If we have a particular destination, i.e. St. Augustine, FL, we generally make reservation for a site there for a couple of days. But to and from, which to us is an adventure in itself and generally takes several days each way and is a large part of the trip, is to plan park A, but also list park B & even C just in case for a night or two. Our last trip to Texas Hill Country was the rule breaker. Virtually every State/COE park was booked for the weekend. Even forced us to spend the weekend at a private "RV Resort" much to our chagrin. All in all it worked out to be pleasant, but not the same as a state or COE. This was even mid April and not supposed to be crowded. Guess it's all those blasted baby boomers retiring and getting into RV'ing like us!

RE: Phoenix Cruiser electric couch in slide.

Not Ron, but an owner of a Phoenix Cruiser 2100 with the electric sofa/bed. No, there is no room or storage under the sofa. I have no idea the difficulty of removing it.

Hocking Hills SP

DW has her heart set on visiting Hocking Hills SP second week of June. We did manage to get one of the four remaining sites for our chosen time slot. We are NOT destination Campers and just sit for a week or so. We have four days slated. Is that over kill for this park? We like to hike, but are asthmatics with bad knees! I guess we can find things to see & do around there. We also plan to spend a couple of days at CARTER CAVES STATE RESORT PARK and again are looking for things to see and do. We have a 22" motorhome and no toad and can fit into most sites/parking lots. Thanks, Gotta keep She Who Must Be Obeyed happy.

RE: Newby questions

To me, it depends on type of camper you are. There are destination people: they drive to wherever, set up and spend a week or two. Type two is the tourer: two, maybe three days in one spot and we get happy feet (wheels). Gotta go on and see what's around the next bend. We are type two people (tourers) and move about frequently. If we're almost out of milk, no big deal, we'll be on the road tomorrow or so. We have a 22"B+ and no toad. We prefer to be mobile. Just the two of us in our early 70's and checking out this great country of ours. Hope this helps.

RE: Class c under 25 feet w/ rear bed slide

Look at the Phoenix Cruiser 2351D. Unfortunately thislink shows a poor picture, but the basic concept appeals to us. We are currently looking into such a unit, but without the sofa and a dinette instead.

RE: Cammpground Rant

We just returned last week from the Hill Country. Wild flowers were every where. The Texas parks are insanely crowded. Especially on the weekends. We had to resort to a private campground (which in most cases we are anti) for the final weekend in Texas, cause we didn't plan far enough ahead. All in all a good trip and a really nice state to visit. Interesting places all over. Ready to do it again.

Patoka Lake Newton-Stewart SRA

Anyone have any knowledge/experience with the park? Patoka Lake Newton-Stewart SRA. We're thinking of a night over on our way to Hocking Hills SP. I can find very little and/or spotty info about it. I can't find anything on it at Campground reviews. I guess my plea for help is: why does a park with 444 sites the first couple of weeks in June have 426 openings? Thanks

RE: Galley/head access with slides in, under 30'

Our Phoenix Cruiser 2100, 22' long, has access through out the coach, galley, head driver/passenger seats and all with the slide in.

Cammpground Rant

What is going on all of a sudden???? Planned a trip to the Hill Country of Texas for about three weeks in April. We are not ones for reservations and pretty much play it by ear. Plan an itinerary of the general areas with campground options and the approximate dates and go from there. We will be leaving the mid-west to Texas shortly, and after researching campgrounds of our choice find that most all are FULL on the weekend, especially Easter weekend. Who'd a thunk! Even our local parks are full. Where'd all these people come from? When did RVing become that popular? Sorrow is the days gone past when we would just pack up and hit the road in a general direction and always find a nice campground. Guess I'm/we're just getting old and crotchety. Thanks for letting me rant

RE: pellet smokers/grills

Although larger than I'd like to tote camping, I found the Rec Tec mini ideal. Quality of construction durability and functionality is above the others on the market. Their service is second to none. They do really stand behind their product, regardless in or out of warranty. And pellet smoking is the best!!!

RE: Best Sales Platform?

I would look at forums for what ever you RV is and post on there. i.e. Airstream forums, Forest River forum, etc. That's how we sold our previous one.

RE: Texas RV campgrounds

San Antonio has Ft. Sam Houston, which has a nice RV park, to the north. Close to downtown, if you're interested the Alamo, River Walk, etc. Also checkthis link, maybe it will help.

RE: Question about rear Dining/Living/Bed

How about a full time bed, when slide is out, in the rear. Look at this 24 foot-ish and you can have the sofa replaced with a dinette if you wish.

RE: Question about rear Dining/Living/Bed

Our Phoenix Cruiser 2100 has a full time dinette and a sofa that converts to the bed. Leave the bedding on, push the button and it's a sofa again. No hassle. DW can sit at the dinette & read while I stretch out. And still room to get around, albeit close.

RE: good sam benefits vs. cons

Our Good Sam's is about to expire and we will not be renewing. Just doesn't add up for us.

RE: stop over North of Birmingham

Just south of Birmingham is Oak Mountain State Park. Campground Reviews give it a fair. Not super far off 65. Just a thought.

RE: Lone Star Dutch Oven Society

Don't forget to check the dates and times of the Louisiana DOGs too. You might find it possible to swing by one of those instead if it's on your route. How did you know we plan on working our way home through Louisiana. However I really doubt if we'll be there on a week end. But the DW is already planning a trip to LA in May. Will definitely looks up some DOGs. thanks again.
