RE: Roof Sealing

Just curious what "problem" this is supposed to "fix"? One of our camping buddies has a 2002 camper with the original EPDM roof. No coatings, just routine Dicor at the wall joints. Our last camper was 12 years old when we sold it, original roof with no coatings.

RE: Would you plug in here.

Now there's a fire waiting to happen..... They planned for that... the water hoses will melt within a couple minutes, putting out the fire. Problem solved!

RE: New truck almost ready to be born

So, at what point is a truck a truck? Is it the minute the order is placed or when it is delivered to the dealer? Oh, nevermind - this will get way too political :) Congratulations - it should be worth the wait! As soon as two parts are assembled, its a truck...

RE: Need a base camp RV park for touristing in NYC

Like others said, Liberty Harbor is the best bet if your intention is to visit the city. Short walk to the PATH, which is 2 stops into Lower Manhattan, short drive to the Holland Tunnel, which takes you into Lower Manhattan, or a ferry ride from the marina to Lower Manhattan. Wife and I went there 9 years ago in the winter. Woke up, got ready and went into the city. Wandered around the city all day, returned to the camper and went to sleep. This campground is PERFECT for that type of trip. If you want a campground feel, this is NOT where you want to be.

RE: Disney world in July

Just outside the parks near Celebration is a campground called Tropical Palms. We spent several winters there and liked it a lot. For that you would need a vehicle to get into the parks (and pay to park it). This is what we did the last time we were there. We LOVE Tropical Palms, great little campground and close to Old Town which is a cool walk to some nice restaurants.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

I find it annoying to travel in a pack. Inevitably you hit traffic and its hard to maneuver several rigs around slower drivers. Then you get someone who falls asleep for a while and slows down and you get someone who wants to go racing and speeds off. I like to set my cruise control for 9 over the limit, up to 68 mph, and drive. It gets annoying when you have to speed up to catch up the group, then inexplicably slow down for no reason, then change lanes, then someone in the middle vehicle needs to pee, then 45 minutes later someone in the front needs to pee because they didn't pee on the first break, etc. No thanks, see you at the campfire in a little while.

RE: how do dey do dat ?

Drove a truck for more years than i want to count. Backed up a trailer literally thousands of times (PER YEAR). I can count on one hand the number of times there was a spotter. Father in law was a truck driver for many years. No spotter, no camera. I rarely use a spotter when I back up. I look at my site and find my obstacles, then avoid them.

RE: how do dey do dat ?

Tailgate half the cost of Cummins?! Cummins on my '17 was somewhere around $11,000 option. $5,500 for a tailgate?? My friend has a 16 or 17 F350. His tailgate was stolen off his truck in his driveway ($70,000 truck and no tailgate lock...???). Insurance paid over $6000 to replace it (paint included). And a Cummins upgrade doesn't cost $11K, but even if it did, some tailgates cost at least half that much.

RE: How much do dealers pay for the RV's they sell

The real question should be: What is a $100,000 RV really worth considering the manufacturer made a profit selling it for $50,000? Since much less that $50,000 in materials and labor was used, is it any wonder these things are of low quality? I'm doubtful that a $100K MSRP RV sold for $50K new... Although I did read it on the internet, so it must be true.

RE: Camping in VT, NH, ME, NY Looking for suggestions

OP, where are you staying in Albany? We're headed up to Lake Champlain this summer and I plan to spend a couple days in Albany. My mom grew up there, wife and kids have never been. Trying to research places near the southwest of the city.

RE: Question on inner bearing grease seals

I don't understand the "Decide good day to pack bearings, run to store" I have a single axle trailer. I always have at least bearings and seal for one wheel in camper. When I pack my bearings, if that is all the spares I have, I order more. Cool. Some people aren't like you.

RE: Maryland/ Delaware Area

Massey's Landing has gone off the deep end with their prices. Just looked at July. Lowest price I saw was $139 a night. Just booked at Trap Pond State Park for 3 nights and it cost just over $100. Drove threw Massey's Landing last year and Trap Pond. We stay at Delaware Seashore State Park and was looking to see if anything could compare in our eyes... Agreed that Massey's landing is ridiculously expensive, and Trap Pond was nice, but a ride to the beach... I've never been, its not my cup of tea. I have friends who have gone and liked it. We LOVE Delaware Seashore and want to try Cape Henlopen now that they have electric sites.

RE: Question on inner bearing grease seals

I'm willing to bet that you are paying for the convenience of going to your local store and buying them. Its quite rare that people know ahead of time the size of their grease seal, rather they pry it out and take it to their local store and ask for a replacement. Its like buying milk at 7-11 at 2 in the morning for $8, as opposed to waiting until the supermarket opens at 7 and buying it for $3. I had every intention of finding my axle info ahead of time and ordering seals... but I forgot and one Saturday the weather was nice and I had time. Luckily my bearings were in superb condition, my grease was clean and red and I didn't have to take off the back seal to pack them... cause I didn't buy new seals on line and would have had to run to Napa and pay 4x the cost to buy off the shelf.

RE: Maryland/ Delaware Area

What type of things are you looking for? Castaways is a resort type park. Massey's Landing is up in Delaware, its right on the Rehoboth Bay, but it requires a drive to the beach. That's a resort park.

RE: Vermont camping area’s

Pools and 50 amps aren’t necessary for every night of camping IMO. Maybe not for YOU, but this isn't your thread and he wasn't asking for opinions... OP, we are going to Lake Champlain next year and staying at Apple Island resort. Its on the lake, has a pool, I believe it has 50 amp, its 45 minutes from Montreal and not far from New Hamp or Maine. My mom lived on Lake Champlain back in her youth and I've visited there in my youth. I remember it being a gorgeous place.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

The best thing about camping in America, everyone gets to do it there own way. I don't worry about how everyone else is doing it, I do it my way. Exactly. Who cares how someone else camps? Is it spring yet?

RE: Camping Lights

I installed a couple of LED little marker lights under my trailer to illuminate the ground around the camper. They are very dim and won't offend anyone, but just bright enough that I can see where the table is, where the chairs are, etc. I prefer not to have my awning light on after we've eaten dinner. I don't like the bugs, I don't like the harsh light, I enjoy the camping experience. Occasionally if we have a big group playing cards we'll pull a table under someones awning and turn the lights on, but I try to be aware of neighbors. Too many people either don't care about their neighbors or simply don't think about the effect of their actions on other people. Its obnoxious...

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

Is anyone out there towing that type of weight with one of the newer F150’s with the 13000lb configuration? Are you happy with the handling? Should I stop being a tight a$$ and get a 3/4 ton truck? TIA A newer F150 with a 13,000 lbs GVWR is going to be on the more expensive side. If money is the issue, you can get a 3/4 ton for low to mid 30's. What is the matter with your Denali that you aren't "happy" with it? Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the Denali on the more expensive side of GM trucks?
