Universal Studios Hollywood, Six Flags RV parks?

Valencia Village RV park cancelled our reservations due to serious storm damage. Trying to find somewhere else to stay. Our plans are to visit Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studios Hollywood, Warner Bros etc. Any other nice clean RV parks not too far that you've had great experience staying?

RE: Verizon or T-Mobile

TMobile 55+ Magenta plan is $35 so two phones with unlimited calls and data costs us $70/month.

RE: I know I wandered off...

Up here in BC we are seeing a lot more teardrop type trailers being pulled by small SUV, small trucks etc. This is our T@B400. A little over 18 feet and weighs in fully loaded just under 3400 pounds. Hitch weight about 340 pounds loaded. There are smaller and larger models from the various manufacturers. Easy pull for the right SUV. We have pulled ours all over Canada and extensively in BC. Easy to get into forestry site etc. We love it. Made up bed and a separate eating table. We didn't want to have to make up a bed every night and we wanted one person to be able to get up and have breakfast and the other one to be able to sleep in. We say so many on our big BC tour last summer. Less common outside BC. Hope that helps and hope you find what you are looking for. Cheers. John I've seen quite a few of the Teardrops making a comeback here too. Too small for our needs. A Popup has 2 queen beds, a sofa bed as well as a small bed by folding the table down. Room to sleep at least 5 adults. We had 2 adults and 2 teens in ours. Teardrops seem awesome for 2 adults!

RE: Exterior Stairs

I don't understand the issue with a bit of "bounce", unless you're are mobility limited. An able bodied person shouldn't have any issues with the normal fold-out steps. I'm 73 and it is simply a non-issue. It's not an issue for the person going up or down the stairs although I do like the feel of solid steps. My issue is the amount of movement felt by people inside the trailer when someone goes up or down the stairs. My 5th wheel has stabilizers, JT Strongarms etc. to dampen movement but those bouncing stairs were too much. No such movement once I went with the Glowsteps.

RE: Awning LED light strip recommendations?

Anyone have experience with cutting to the exact length needed? Or using the outdoor light as a peer source(12v) Have to buy a strip designed to be cut. They'll have lines where you can cut, typically every 3 or so LED's.

RE: I know I wandered off...

What are people buying instead of PopUp tent trailers? My first popup weighed only 1,000lbs. Had 2 queen beds, stove, sink etc. 2nd popup was much larger, 1 king, 1 queen, shower, toilet, stove, sink, outside sink and grill and weighed only 2,000lbs. I could tow either with an economy SUV with ease. My 3rd trailer was a hybrid hard sided but with foldout tent beds. Tons of room, huge slide out and weighed 5,000lbs fully loaded. I did have to upgrade the tow vehicle to a Durango 5.7L V8. The current popups I've seen are high sided to allow for full ovens, microwave, refrigerators and most other ammenities. These are no longer lightweight and in most cases cannot be towed with a economy SUV. In this regard, may as well get a small hard sided and larger tow vehicle.

RE: Exterior Stairs

My 5th wheel came with the MorRyd solid step. NEVER had an issue with level or being solid on the ground. And adjusting has NEVER taken more than several seconds. MorRyd's are very good solid steps. However, many like myself who store their RV at a storage lot cannot use them. The spacing between rigs makes it impossible to fold them out without pulling the trailer out of the spot. I went with Torklift Glowsteps as they can be extended only as far as needed.

RE: Exterior Stairs

They are far from my top contender ,a good set of three or four step suspended would be my next choice if the time comes . Biggest complaint with conventional folding steps is the bounce you get when stepping on them. Many nickname them diving board steps. Entire trailer bounces. I chose the Torklift Glowsteps. They are rock solid. No more bouncing.

Awning LED light strip recommendations?

Need to replace the under awning LED light strip. Tons available on Amazon etc. Looking for recommendations from someone who has purchased and installed any of these. Need a strip with flying leads to crimp/solder to existing wiring. Tried a strip from Camping World but it is very flaky. It has a 2 pin tiny connector with 1/8" long pins at end with mating connector that is much to flimsy for a reliable connection. It cannot be removed.
