RE: Out of the blue....

Gary thank you for sharing your post! When the rallies were popular here we had the opportunity to meet some of the most friendly folks and to this day we are still meeting up at least 2X per year. :C Had some enjoyable conversations with RV.net members on the PM level also! Mike

RE: School me in public parks camping...

Yes on campground reviews.com as a first place to check reviews, the review home pages have links to google earth of the campgrounds & most have correct links to the online reservations. Sometimes I will also check google & trip adviser if I don't see enough reviews on campground reviews.com. Some of the public campgrounds are brutal on getting a reservations to the point where I have had "seconds" to book a reservation when the window opens, gets very frustrating. :( For the most part I find private campgrounds do a better job on Overall campground cleanliness IMO Mike

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I guess I'm leaning toward a Sheltie again. I spoke to our local vet that we had used in the past and he is going to get in touch with some breeders in our area, so waiting to hear from him Thanks Mike

RE: Heading to Maine-Need Suggestions

Camden Hills State Park is very scenic. Largest sites are up in front, closest to rte 1 that are better for the MH's. State park is also across the road which has a ocean trail, overlooks and picnic area. Check out ward winning Claws restaurant in Rockland and River Ducks Ice Cream in Camden, both most stops! Don't forget to visit Owls Head & Rockland Breakwater Lighthouses, both about 30 minutes away! If your ambitious try hiking 1300' Mt Megunticook, spectacular views!! Hope this helps Mike

RE: RV AC Longevity

I've replaced OEM coils that have lasted almost 40 yrs, the replacements lasted 10 yrs. compressors, motors, controls, bearings and even v-belts just don't last as long... this is a overall trend I have had to deal with. Mike

RE: Where do you search for parks?

I always start with Campgrounds reviews.com If I'm not comfortable in what is written in the reviews or just to few I will then research trip adviser or google. There are a couple of tools on the campground reviews web site that will help you in this. First is the number of reviews. If there are 2 reviews, well one is the camp ground and one is the nearest competitor. So you cam pretty much throw out the high and low. The other is the previous reviews by the reviewer. If you see a bad review and discover that particular reviewer basically hates everything, that would lead me to disregard that review. Some people aren't happy until you aren't happy. Finally, my cutoff is a rating of 7.5. This is from personal experience. Sometimes if I see a reviewer who is constantly scoring low scores on their review history, maybe the reviewer is miserable but at the very least the reviews are consistent. So in some cases there is valve to those reviews as I know its the reviewer and not the campground. A reviewer who's score history is all over the place I find it very hard to find any value in the reviews, especially if there is few reviews and the reviewers profile has little additional information. :C Mike

RE: Where do you search for parks?

I always start with Campgrounds reviews.com If I'm not comfortable in what is written in the reviews or just to few I will then research trip adviser or google. In addition if I need more specific information on a particular campground or area around the campground I will post here, iRV2 forum or sometimes some of the smaller camping forums. Mike

RE: Kiplinger: 13 Reasons You'll Regret An RV In Retirement

They make valid points if all you're thinking about is money. I got into RVing because I liked it, not because of money. I really don't care what it costs. Kind of agree, I enjoy Rving. At this point in my life money is a factor, later on hopefully not so much. Mike

RE: Tow vehicles

I have a 2015 jayco hybrid which I have been towing with a 2005 Chevy trailblazer. Although the trailblazer can handle the trailer and I have towed with it on various occasions I often borrow a larger tow vehicle from family. I’m considering a dodge Dakota with the V-8 which would more than handle my needs and be able to tow my hybrid. I’m wondering what people’s experiences have been with towing a lightweight trailer with mid size pickups. My last 2 trailers we sized to my Tacoma so my experience has been good. Hope to tow a few more yrs with what I have before our next upgrade. Mike

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Dachshund (or 2 weiner dogs).... (We have 2 of them and a cat. They all absolutely love traveling and camping. I don't dare show those piks to DW, as we would be getting a dog next week! :B Mike

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Look at Cavaliers, they were bred to be lap dogs. Small and easy to please disposition. With any dog you decide on, get a professional trainer and it’ll make a world of difference! Googled this breed, I will look into this one. Mike

RE: Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

My concern with another Sheltie would be that they are known for being one of the more vocal breeds, which of course can be challenging to deal with in a campground. And many I've met have been rather high strung. Although I will say that one of my best friends had one that I believe would have made an excellent RV dog. She was calm and easy going. Good luck, and thank you for doing your homework! yup, I felt we were lucky with our past Sheltie. I have read about sheltie's and they seem to trend towards being on the hyperactive side, I'm thinking ours was the exception. I'm no dog expert so please keep the ideas coming! :) Mike

Looking for dog breed the travels well while Rving

Been awhile since I have been on this board. DW wants a Dog, looking for ideas. Some background info: DW loves dogs, for me I can take them or leave them. In the past because of this we have settled for the smaller breeds. Our last dog was a sheltie, we think we were very fortunate that the dog had such a good disposition. This said I would love to get the same breed but I have read they don't travel as well and we might not be as lucky with #2. What everyone's thoughts? How about other smaller breeds that travel well? Thanks Mike

RE: Mat rant

We use the light weight woven plastic mats, had a few campgrounds that didn't allow them because of grass... so just followed the rules like everything else. I like using them as most places we have stayed at have the crushed stone put down which is not easy on bare feet, especially when going out in the middle of the night to do X,YorZ :C Mike

RE: Campground near Dinosaur State Park Connecticut

Bear creek campground in Bristol is not to far from I691 in ct For what is worth and just my opinion when we went to Dinosaur state park some 20 yrs ago we thought it was over rated and our kids were bored. :) Mike
