RE: First trip out west from FL.... need help

We stayed in Kanab and traveled to GC, Bryce and Zion on different days. Do NOT try to do Zion on a weekend!!!! HOLY COW it's a busy place! We stayed at Kanab RV Corral. Nice small park. Kanab is an hour or two from each of the parks. We don't do a lot of hiking, so seeing each one for a day was sufficient. :) The drives to the parks were awesome.....we were there in the fall and the colors were nice!

RE: New to RVing - Questions

Welcome and congrats. A little research on this forum will give you many ideas. 1) we have an Olympic bbq and love it. There will be many suggestions of every kind out there. It's trial and error to find the one you like. 2)We have DishNetworks Tailgater. It works for us and is cheaper than the ones mounted on the roof. As a beginner, don't get one of those grey dishes. It will drive you nuts trying to zone it in. 3) I don't know...that's hubbie's job. 4)Yes, lock your door and your compartments. You just never know who will decide your stuff should be theirs. After years of camping, we got lax this year and left our portable Hondagenerators out. They were stolen...oops. :) Now, a little more advice....how are you dealing with your mail? Does your insurance cover everything IN the rig as well as the rig itself? Have an awesome time...and keep a sense of humor.

RE: Pulled the trigger on the Full time Life

So much to see in Arizona. Get your passport if you don't have and go into Mexico down by Yuma. That's a fun time. Go on google and do a search for "what to see in Arizona"...or whatever state you are interested in. Do you like rockhounding? Whether you do or not, check out Quartzsite's gem and mineral club. Very economical to join and cheap classes in leatherwork, rock cutting, jewelrymaking, etc. See you in the fall. We'll be there in Oct.

RE: 1999 Alpenlite Durango 10

Loved our Alpenlite 5er...had double the storage of a rig 4 feet shorter. They, from what I've seen and experienced, we well built

RE: Price it right---- Take care of it.-SOLD

We, too, take care of our rigs. We've sold 2 in last few yrs that were older (80s and 90s) and sold both for what we bought them for. :)

RE: Stink bugs!!

We were invaded last summer by a member of the stink bug family. To say it freaked me out is putting it mildly. I'm not tslking a few, I'm talking 1000000000000s. We vacuumed up, sprayed, etc and nothing worked. We finally used a chemical bomb. Now mind you, we gad vacuumed where the insides of my new white vacuum was now brown from bug juice!!! After the bomb, we walked in to a layer of black snow all over our rig!!!!!!!! I'm suggesting to just go ahead and bomb the rig. Good luck!

RE: Camp Sherman in Oregon

Camp Shetman area...the whole Metolius area is gorgeous. I don't know about camping there because we lived in the Bend area and it was a day trip. But DO check it out. Take your camera!!! You can also go further up the highway and check out Suttle Lake. A great hiking path around the lake. There is a resort there, but last spring the restaurant was closed.

RE: Hug your pups

Kinda makes you wonder what the chemicals are doing to humans, doesn't it??? I'm thinking of children that play on the lawns.

RE: Family Vacation Out West

My one piece of advice to figure what you might want to see in each state is to go to Google and type in " what is there to see in xxx". We have found soooo much info that way. I wait till 1-3 days ahead and make reservations, however we don't travel in busy season (summer). We stayed in Kanab Utah and went to Grand Canyon, north rim, Brice Canyon, and Zion. Note: don't try to see them on the weekends. READ, READ, RESEARCH, RESEARCH. You've got a good start by being on this forum.

RE: Quartzite

Yes, the standard stuff in Gamblers, RV Lifestyles and I think another. But as for the transient vendors that come for the Sell-a-Rama, no, they are all gone. Oh, Solar places are open.

RE: Double Towing in Oregon

Thanks, Texan....i am understanding that fj12ryder can't read. Seeing as the guy from ODOT said he contacted Oregon State Police and they are ok with it. And for the record, I am NOT contacting every county sheriff......

RE: Double Towing in Oregon

Does the Idaho Tote have a title and license? I am interested in the laws because I want to be able to transport my Motorcycle most likely with a small trailer. I am licensed in SD and they do allow double tow. I just need to know for a FACT if I can tow like that in states that don't allow their residents to do so. California, Oregon and Washington specifically. no...since an extension of the rv you move the license plate to the tote. Nit sure if you need to when you pull it behind your pickupYou'd best check with your state since the Idaho Tote and their ilk are considered trailers in the state of Missouri and have to be licensed. Other states may consider them trailers too, so check with your DMV. The DMV told me if they aren't permanently attached, and can be easily removed, they're a trailer. YMMV.Did you not read my original post???? As far as DMV and state police in Oregon are concerned it is an extension, not a trailer. PERIOD

RE: Double Towing in Oregon

It's not me I expect anyone to believe. I believe the letter. If anyone wants to see the email, I can forward it. Msg me your email. (guess it wadn't my last word...lol)
amandasgramma 03/05/16 12:43pm General RVing Issues
RE: Double Towing in Oregon

Okay...I give up. The person that sent me the letter is an employee of the Dept of Motor Vehicles. I sent them the link to the website. If he didn't do his proper research that's his problem. I'm quite sure it will hold up in court and believe me, I WILL take any ticket to court. As for this topic, it will be the last time I respond.

RE: Double Towing in Oregon

Is it legal in the state you are registered in??????? If so most states will accept it, as you are passing through. Here in CommmieCalifornia CHP dose not ticket if it is legal in registered state. Sorry OP just noticed it is your home state!!! not oregon, they don't allow for passing through. And they do stop and make you drop the extra trailer before being allowed to move.May not be correct according to 2 different OSP officers that have inspected my double tow on US-95 in Oregon. They both said that if you are traveling from a state that allows recreational doubles(Idaho) to a state that allows recreational doubles(Nevada) and are NOT stopping for anything other than food or fuel, then it is legal. I have yet to find anything that says this in writing, but these are 2 of the OSP officers that patrol that stretch of 95 in Oregon and I had had more than a couple LEO's, including Deputy Sheriffs actually pass me and never have been stopped there.Thanks, Texan. We've seen many double tows from other states in Oregon and not seen any pulled over. I suspect those that have been pulled over were speeders. LOL... no, I take that back....I don't think they stop speeders in Oregon.

RE: Double Towing in Oregon

HERE is a site that shows which states allow double towing. The issue isn't what states allow double towing, it's whether the Idaho Tote and others are considered trailers or are allowed. As I posted in the original post, the Idaho Tote is considered part of the TT or 5er and is legal.

RE: Double Towing in Oregon

Check out the brochure on their web page...it shows a close up of the "hook up". It IS bolted which is a lot better than the way a trailer is hooked up. Remember (and this is a woman talking) the 5er's body is also bolted to the frame. :)
