RE: KOA Membership

We have been KOA members for years. When we camp-we generally go on trips as versus weekends and typically stay at Good Sam campgrounds or KOA. As was mentioned KOA tends to be a bit more $$'s but they generally offer more. Usually they have stores for camping supplies-pool areas-dog walks, and informative and friendly staff, clean restrooms and showers. For us-we definitely get our Bang for the Buck. Like their Camp Ground Directories as well

RE: Finally a Decision...

We did something similar but a bit different. Sold the Arctic Fox and bought a small Class C-24 ft. Chev 4500 chassis with V-8 Gas engine. Bought the Class C used--2017-8500 miles--figuring most of the wrinkles would be ironed out and from the Dlr. that originally sold it. And still under Factory warranty. So far, so good-took it on a trip to McAllen, Tx.(Son-In-Law with Homeland Sec.)-ran great and really easy to drive-even Bev drove. Also, big enough and heavy duty enough to get a toad, if needed. Where ever we went we used "Uber" which worked really well because the drivers would tell us all the neat places to visit. Best to Ruthie, L

RE: When to quit.

I am turning 75 shortly. Earlier this year we sold our Arctic Fox 5th wheel and bought a small-24 ft- Class C. Had to back off RV'ing for a couple of years because my D.W. was ill. She is good now and we are raring to get out there again. Our 1st trip with the Class C we took a longish trip to McAllen, Tx. to visit our daughter and her family. Had a blast and we're planning to get going again, soon.

RE: Need recommendations for Arizona, New Mexico trip

Might think of making a stop at Williams, Az.-fun place to visit along RT 66/40 and you can take a really fun train ride from there to the Grand Canyon. Has RV Campgrounds. Also, saw you mentioned Zion Nat Park-Bryce Canyon is another great place to visit/tour. https://experiencewilliams.com/things-to-do-in-williams-arizona/ https://utah.com/bryce-canyon-national-park

RE: 24’ - 27’ floorplans.

Earlier this year we bought a slightly used 2017 Forester River Forester SLE 2251(about 24 ft.) on a Chevy 4500 chassis, with a 6.0 gas engine. Wanted the Chevy because of larger foot well space and less heat emitting from engine, drivetrain into cab. Similar to Minnie Winnie 22M. Just my wife, myself and our 35lb. dog. Easy to drive and easy to park in campground sites or street parking Has bed slide on drivers side, which helps to judge space needed backing into sites We generally go on trips-not weekends- and like that we both can drive it and similar to driving a 1 ton pick up and can park it/store it in my driveway

RE: From Md to California, Part 1

Between Santa Cruz and Monterey on the coast is one of our favorite campgrounds-it is small and a KOA-Moss Landing. By a Marina, 3+ great restaurants, easy walk or bike ride to beach, old (very)small town atmosphere, super clean. In Az. really neat place to visit is "Williams" on Route 40/66. If you have the time-take the train ride to Grand Canyon. We have traveled I10 & I40-recently used I40 it is an older highway well used by truckers-but a lot of fun if you want to follow Rt.66.

RE: First timer looking for TT...so confused

Before you "buy" research the Dlr. and their Service Dept. After you own the camper-it's you and them. Secondly buy used-find the camper you like used-new to 1 year old preferably. Reason for used is generally they have the majority of wrinkles ironed out at someone else's expense and time and a lot of time the previous owner has added equipment at their expense. There are a lot of lightly used newish campers out there that for whatever reason are up for sales, still under warranty and assuming you buy from a Dlr. they should have gone through it and hand you a list of what they did.

RE: How many driving hours per day?

Keep in mind there will be hiccups along the way-road closures, road construction, accidents, morning and evening work traffic, etc. Have the GasBuddy, iExit, Apps, Etc.-know where the roadside reststops are, and try to use the truck stops/stations as much as possible-they usually have a pretty good restaurant as well as places to pull off and rest.

RE: California Here We Come!

While on Route 40 have to go to Williams, Az. Rv. campgrounds there-great train ride to Grand Canyon and back and an old historic town with local places to visit.

RE: Winter: Storage or Usage

I am in So. Calif. with our Class C in our driveway. Have tires/wheels covered and windshield covered as well as passenger/drivers side windows covered. Today it is about 75 but the last month has been in the 80's-90's. Bought the covers through Amazon. Particularly like the windshield cover because of the additional privacy it offers while in campgrounds.

RE: Chevy Class C?

We looked for and bought a used{had about 7000 miles on it} 2017 Class C Forester LE, with V8 gas engine and Chevy 450 chassis and it's great. Had it about 5 months and have put 5000 miles on it. After reading Chevy had larger footwells and seemed to be stay cooler in front passenger compartments-particularly on passenger side. Hard to find a Chevy though-mostly all Ford. Also, we bought from a Dlr. purposely to get their warranty and figured I could grind them down on price easier-got about 27% off. :B

RE: Used Class C Help

We recently bought a used 2017 Class C-about 24 ft.-switching from a 5'vr. Made a point of getting a Chevy 450 chassis- had read articles about Ford's had less foot room and that the front passenger side seemed to get hot while driving. Big difference in storage availability, definitely more rattling noises. Really like the ease of parking or setting up, much easier to drive and nice to be able to move around on a long trip. We don't have toad so have used "Uber" quite a bit or just take the RV.

RE: Help choosing first RV

If it were me-definitely would go for 2 axles. We have owned 2 5'vrs and really used them all over U.S of A and Canada-not always on paved roads. Never had a flat using American made truck tires-5'vr in Sig. Pic. came with "Triangle" brand tires:h-couldn't give them away, finally Salvation Army took them-put on GoodYear Wranglers-never had a problem.

RE: Canadian Rockies summer 2020

On our trip to northern B.C. from Ca., in Wash. we entered through Sumas border crossing which headed us into Abbotsford, B.C. Stayed at a Good Sam campground there for a couple of nights. Picked Sumas instead of Vancouver border crossing because of the heavy traffic and time to get through that border-Sumas took maybe 30 minutes, at most.
