RE: East Canada

I have been to the east coast four times. We have never made advance reservations, but if you are planning on staying in one place for several weeks, you might want to. As far as boondocking, there are some places, but they are few and far between. It depends on how big a rig you have. The iOverlander app shows some boondocking spots. We have a 38 ft rig with tow car, and many of the places listed on the app are for smaller rvs. We did stay at a few places listed in the app, as well as some Walmarts. Places like Peggys Cove have a very narrow road going to them, and little to no parking for rvs. I recommend a tow car for visiting places like Peggys Cove, Lunenburg, Halifax etc. Also the tow car is a must to go around The Cabot Trail in Cape Breton. Very scenic highway, but not recommended to take your rv around it. It has very steep hills. I myself really enjoy the high tides of the Bay of Fundy. That is what keeps me going back over and over. Hopewell Rocks, NB, are a must see, as well as try to catch the tidal bore at South Maitland, NS. You can also see it at Truro NS, but South Maitland is probably the best at the tidal bore interpretation centre. Burntcoat Head is the highest tides in the world. Digby Harbour, Halls Harbour are two in Nova Scotia that you can see the high tides changing. Alma in New Brunswick is a cute harbour, and is close to the Fundy NP. PEI has lots of beaches, as well as the Confederation Bridge. It is free to get on the island, but cost $45.50 for a car, and $8.75 per extra axle to cross the bridge. You can also take the ferry over for free, but it is more expensive than the bridge to return to the mainland. We are going too thank you for your excellent info Winniman

RE: When giving restaurant (or other venues) suggestions

Google is pretty good for giving reviews on restaurants. I use TripAdvisor as well. I don't use Yelp because I don't trust it due to previous issues with false reviews. Yep trip advisor is the place to go for restaurants not here

RE: Ozark resort

Been to Branson many times - personally I would not want to be 50 minutes to an hour out of town - The KOA is cheaper and a lot closer - we were just there this spring

RE: It's all ours now!

This accountant would have told you the interest was deductible as a second home unless your already had that deduction assuming you are in the states

RE: Mama Gerties

We stop there for a week every year. Always get a spot at the top with a deck . Views are great, access to Asheville is quick and easy. Top deck sites are unique but the others are not special at all- we stayed at Bear Creek and liked it

RE: Winnebago vs Tiffin

The Itasca line of Winnebago approaches the quality of a Tiffin. Absolutely no difference in the Itasca and Winnebago coaches - just the name

RE: RV Storage in Anacortes, WA

Lake Pleasant RV Park Bothell Washington is 70 miles south - they advertise right on their website "We also offer storage sites - with electricity - to park your rig while you take a cruise. We do fill up in summer, so please book your site early. We welcome all rigs - big or small." They have been the short term storage place in Seattle for years - we used them 10 years ago

RE: Seattle RV Park Recs

Seattle is not RV friendly. If you are touring the south side of Seattle, then the KOA in Kent (this coming from a guy who dislikes KOA) is the best choice. If playing on the north side, then Lake Pleasant (nice park) is the place. Totally agree I have stayed at both - including a stay of 54 days in Kent helping out our son

RE: Redwood National Park question

We stayed at the Crescent City KOA two years ago. The campground was about 15 minutes from Redwoods National Park. It wasn't anything special, but it was certainly fine for a exploration base. Nice enough laundry room and the staff was polite. Have stayed at KOA but we stayed at Redwood Meadows RV Resort (formerly Hiouchi RV Resort) last year and like it better

RE: Trip Planning

No,there are times that a stand alone GPS would be beneficial because I don't believe google maps works fully when there's no cell service. Like real time traffic and accident locations. You need cell service to get that stuff. You can transfer the RV Trip Wizard file to a GPS unit but I can't get it to work. I have a Garmin so the protocol is to use Base Camp. It's not a user friendly program. Some people say they have no problem using it so it could just be that I have difficulty. I suppose I could manually enter everything into my Garmin but that's a lot of work if it's a long trip you're planning. Checking fuel locations for access is going to depend on the size of your RV. Obviously the bigger the RV, the more room you need to maneuver. I have a 34' 5th wheel so I need a decent amount of maneuverability and height clearance where a truck camper or class B won't have those concerns. Nothing is going to be fool proof. I found what works for me while others use different methods and find that works for them. Note first you have to transfer the Trip Wizard file to your computer then using Garmin "POI loader" transfer it to your Garmin - it is a really easy process - and yes it does work - it does not have to load using Base Camp
