RE: Historic Triangle Virginia

We also did American Heritage. There is a 7 day ticket that allows entry to all 3 locations. We already had tickets but American Heritage had sign advertising discount tickets...check with them on pricing. We didn’t have that long there so did a 3 day Williamsburg ticket and 1 day to Yorktown battlefield and the museum. We didn’t get to Jamestown. We also did 2 day trip to Mt Vernon. If you have time, do it.

RE: Chaser and Chasee

We don’t but if it suits y’all then go for it. It seemed to work for Smokey and the Bandit. If wife follows you and you have communication with her, she could make lane changes easier for you by sliding over and allowing you room.

RE: How do you manage without a toad?

No toad here and we’ve done fine. We’ve taken our 24ft to several tourist locations including Biltmore House, Niagara Falls, Watkins Glenn SP, Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown battlefield and museum, and Mt Vernon. Most locations have bus parking and we just park there. We’ve found public day parking at a few beaches as well. We’ve really simplified our site setup because we do break camp often during a stay.

RE: When leaving for the day...

Where are y’all camping for someone to take your site? We don’t use a toad and have had several week long trips in last year where we take MH out everyday. We’ve had not issues. Trips included Ashville NC, Rochester NY, Williamsburg VA, Mt Vernon VA, and Cordele GA (visiting Jimmy Carter hometown).

RE: Williamsburg/Langley

We recently did a trip there. Spent 5 nights at American Heritage RV (http://americanheritagervpark.com/). It was a very nice park. Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown make up a historical triangle and you can get 7 day ticket pack for them. We didn’t have that time, so we did a 3 day ticket to Williamsburg and took day to visit Yorktown. For us, 3 days in Williamsburg was just barely enough time. 1 day in Yorktown was sufficient, doing the battleground tour and museum. We then spent day and half at Mt Vernon which was fantastic. We did an extended preservation tour that was great. Not enough time, but wish we could’ve hit Monticello.

RE: Salesman trying to talk me out of a Class C

It’s all about compromises. I really wanted a small class A because the cab area becomes part of living space when setup. But, like poster above, we tow boat...no toad. So the short C met more or our needs.

RE: fresh water tank

Actually, it was likely correct info from the tech. Inside many water pumps is a check valve that prevents city water running backwards through the pump and into FW tank. If valve is bad, it doesn’t mean pump won’t pump water.

RE: Travel from Atlanta to South Bend- during football season

I would also add that tailgating at football games from motorhome really steps up enjoyment level of attending games. It could also give opportunity for close away games.

RE: RV Pole Barn

If enclosed, a good floor drain system so you can wash, drain FW, etc, in barn. Based on size I’m hearing, several man doors so it isn’t a mile trip around barn to get in.

RE: Feedback on the new style entry steps

I'll second the love the new steps. The two cons are you have to clean them with a stiff broom before packing up and that if you park/store your RV somewhere you need room on the campground side to open the steps. Since I store at home, not a problem but if I was in a storage lot, crammed next to another RV, I could see where it would be an issue. All that said, the stability is first rate, the steps are wider, it doesn't shake the camper when someone comes in the steps. To me, since the space to open them isn't an issue, it's a very worthwhile trade off. All of this reply are my exact thoughts. My sisters 5er has them and the 2 cons mentioned are all I’ve seen. They put a door rug right up to edge of doorway to catch any dirt and just shake it outside when next setup. My BIL elderly father often goes with them and he can get up/don them fine. I think he would have trouble with older style steps. Also, they have to position 5er just right in RV shed or steps will hit vertical pole when opening,

RE: Looking for a comfy chair..

On Many large recliners you can remove back for moving it. There’s usually a Velcro flap near bottom of back. Lift it up and there will be a few screws or threaded knobs to remove. The back then just lifts up. Reverse when in place. Edit-just noticed that info about removable backs already posted :)

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

How big is your truck and how big are the cars? Perhaps rule of tonnage is in your favor and you can move the cars if they won’t. ;-)

RE: For those who live in the south

One thought is if the pond is inside a fenced dog park the gators might be kept out. As mentioned, checking with staff there would be safest.

RE: 24’ - 27’ floorplans.

We have the 22M and love it but kids are grown. With your twins, something with a couch might be better fit. We had a 32ft class C and it was easy to just jump in and go. We often took it for an afternoon shopping trip. We moved to the 32ft from 5'er for tailgating football games.

RE: What is the difference between a Class B+ and a C ?

Interesting side question...what is a large bus coach like a Prevost or even a skoolie? They start with a full body bus so are they class B? :) :) :)

RE: What is the difference between a Class B+ and a C ?

...I always thought a bus conversion should logically be called a class B, but nobody asked my opinion when they were formulating the classes. I’ve thought the same!

RE: What is the difference between a Class B+ and a C ?

B+ is a salesman/marketing term that has come to mean a class C without the overcab bunk. They are class C since they begin life as a cab chassis (cab and open frame)

RE: Hurricane Florence Evacuation

Earlier today, I saw GA State Parks offering free dry camping outside the regular camping areas.

RE: Isnt this a class B

Nope. Class C just no overcab bunk. Being built on cut-away chassis, i.e. cab and chassis, vs a van body makes it a C. I believe it would be marketed as a B+ but doesn't really matter as there doesn't appear to be any intent to deceive. Probably so but technically still a class C.
