RE: Austin, El Paso, Tuscon, Phoenix

We stayed at Lost Dutchman in Apache Junction a couple of years ago, very nice, big spaces, good views. In Tucson there is Catalina State Park that gets good reviews, that's on the north (or west) end of Tucson, there's also Pima County Fairgrounds on the south (or east) end of town. In Vegas we have stayed at Sam's Town (now a KOA), Oasis (pricey but nice, sites not that roomy and under the flight path for the airport), and Las Vegas RV Resort. Look at www.rvparkreviews.com for areas you are looking at

RE: Arizona Snowbird RV parks to tour for future stay

We have stayed at the Voyager in Tucson that past 4 winters. We are on a lot that is 100 ft long and 33 ft wide. There are many, many activities here, 9 hole golf course, pickleball, all kinds of exercise classes, hiking nearby. In February they will announce early bird rates, which saves you $$ for next year.

RE: Vanleigh Vilano = TIFFIN !!

We have seen several at rv shows here in Tucson. I was not impressed at all. They are definitely NOT a "Tiffin product" and don't claim to be. The prices hover around $60 to $70k. The interior cabinets are cheaply built. They may compete with other mid level brands. Nothing to see here, folks.

RE: Rogers, Arkansas campground

Prairie Creek is NOT closed. We are hosts here and they did repave but never closed the park. To Kentucky Joe, good luck finding a site IF you are coming for the War Eagle craft fair. We have a very few sites left and they are for small rv's, Horseshoe Bend is probably full. Many people made their reservations months ago. The COE added water to most of the sites here at Prairie Creek last year.

RE: Yellowstone Last wk in May or 1st wk in June

X2 on what Agesilaus said. We park hosted in southern MT for 3 seasons and it could be 35 at night or warmer. It could be freezing rain or not. You never know, weather is unpredictable then, however, I think it would be a good time to visit before the huge crowds get there

RE: Stolen 2017 DRV Mobile Suites 39DBRS3

The control panel for the slides and the landing gear is inside the Drv's, front door is not a 751 key. So, if it was locked it shouldn't have been easy, so maybe not locked?

RE: Tucson area in the Spring

I haven't seen anyone recommend the fairgrounds, Pima County Fairgrounds is at the southern end of Tucson, offers full hookup sites for reasonable price. We stay at Voyager RV resort in the winter and it really empties out the end of March. Lots of biking areas in the south part of town.

RE: tell me about your toilet!

We have the same toilet and if you don't clean it every time you dump it does get pretty icky. When DH is dumping and the water is off I hold the flap open and spray the underside and down into the tube with Scrubbing Bubbles (or Wal Mart's brand), let it sit and scrub with a toilet brush a few times. If you do that it stays clean. To me it's a cleaning issue, not that there is something wrong with the toilet.

RE: California state parks

X2 on what bikendan said. We park hosted at Emma Wood State Beach in Ventura, CA for 5 years and there is nothing, did I say nothing in the way of amenities, except for a beautiful ocean view. In Ventura county there are a couple of small county parks right on the ocean with hookups, Hobson & Faria. Rincon has no hookups of any kind either. Look at www.rvparkreviews.com for most CA state parks, a lot of them are listed.

RE: 2016 Mobile Suite 38 RSSA Queen vs King Bed

I don't know why the shelf or cabinet cannot be removed to install a king mattress. You may have to replace the plywood to add a wider piece for a king. Have you posted this on one of the suites owners sites? There's a Drv thread on the 5th wheel forums, on the Thor website and on Facebook. There's another website SOITC, suites owners international travel club, google for that.

RE: Campsite in west Los Angeles

As others have said there is nothing inexpensive in the LA area. There is a park in Long Beach, Golden something I think. We've stayed at Walnut RV in Northridge, it's fine. Balboa/Birmingham in Van Nuys is junky. There's a KOA in Pomona and a Ventura County park (Tapo Canyon) in Simi Valley. Look at www.rvparkreviews for areas around there.

RE: Wintering in the 5th Wheel in the Reno/Sparks area

We used to live in Sparks and I wouldn't winter in either of those parks. Bordertown sites are really close, Sparks Marina gets good reviews but it's pricey. We've stayed at Shamrock and it's really tight in there for bigger rigs too. We've stayed at Camp n Town in Carson City and liked it. When we return now we stay at Grand Sierra RV park, it has reasonable rates and you can use the hotels's amenities like gym, pool, etc. They have monthly rates all winter but not in the summer. We have friends staying monthly at the Gold Ranch right now and they like it. Surprisingly, Reno doesn't usually get a lot of snow but it is cold, you will have to wrap your water hose with heat tape. We kept a small electric heater in the basement for the coldest nights. Also, if you have an rv frig they will freeze so you need to put a light bulb on the outside vent to keep it from freezing. Ours did freeze and we had to replace the cooling unit.

RE: Looking for Opinions on Keystone Montana for Full Timing

You might look for an owner's group to ask more actual owners these questions. They are your best resource

RE: Family of four full-timing...RV recommendations?

Go to Facebook and search for Fulltime Families group. They are living it and would have much better suggestions than us, who are mostly retired folks.

RE: Does anyone know if a 2011 Palomino Sabre is a good 5er

Look for an owner's group online. They will be your best resource to ask.

RE: Replace Carpet in RV

We tore out the carpet in the LR and BR and replaced with 16" square vinyl tiles. We glued them down. My son laid the first few and showed us how to do it. It was hard on the knees but easy to lay down the tiles. We bought them at Home Depot. We first tried the interlocking vinyl planks (Allure) but we have a curved wall in the bedroom and couldn't get the cut right to go around the curve. The vinyl tiles were easy to cut with a jigsaw or heavy duty box cutter we also got at Home Depot. It's so easy to clean. If everyone saw all the dirt that goes through the carpet and accumulates under it they would all tear it up. We got an estimate from someone to lay continuous vinyl and it was over $3,000. The tiles were about $300 plus glue and a few other tools.

RE: Hwy 395 Hwy 120 and 6.... are they good for a 42' 5th wheel

X2 on what others said about it being a good route. We have gone that way more than once and it's fine. We pull a 37' 5'r and it's no problem at all. It's been a year since we've been on 395 and 1 1/2 years since we've been on 120 & 6, all in good shape for rv's.

RE: Weird , nice ,funky small camping places

There are a lot of them listed in Don Wright's Free Campground books (Amazon). We've stayed in many of them.
