RE: 4 season camping

We own a Outdoor trailer and have had pretty good luck with it. It's easy to heat and cool, tows very well, and is heck for stout. We've been in the low 20's and as hot as 100 degrees, and all was easy. Now, as with any trailer---there will be issues here and there, but we've encountered way less problems with ours than other brands. Take a trip to their factory in Le Grande (both AF and Outdoor are made there). If that's out of the question, youtube has several videos by Adventurous Ways during their factory tours. I don't work for them, but have been through several trailers and pulled thousands of miles.

RE: Trouble with California

I was stopped for going just a "little" over the speed limit about a year ago. I even got a "driving award" in the process. After the trooper identified himself, I promptly told him that I had a gun in the console. The trooper asked if I had a CCW and if the weapon was legal (he hadn't run my name yet). I said "YEP, but these aren't my pants." We both laughed, he scratched out a paper while I felt stupid about getting caught, and we both "went home safely." See? Simple! If anyone doesn't get the "these aren't my pants," watch Live PD or Cops. Maybe if we just all got along instead of being wadded up, our lives, country, and world would be better.

Where, oh where to go

We're kinda sort of planning a trip through the southern half of the U.S. We have the western part pretty well planned with National Parks, friends, and other places to see. Heading east, we plan to drive through TX, LA, MS, and into FL. This portion of the trip is also pretty well planned. Where we are lacking in places to visit is in the eastern/southern half of the U.S. We will be at Charleston, SC for a few days, then probably turning back to the west--maybe Branson, Pigeon Forge, etc. What is there to see between Charleston and say Colorado? Interestingly, I've driven in all 50 states, but have never stopped to see the sights until now. Thanks

RE: Tire pressure monitors

Whew! One reason I asked the question is; I had a previous trailer that was a POS. However, I installed first rate tires because of the stock china bombs. In California, one tire found a large spike thing that blew the tire. Because I could see tire in the mirror I was able to pull over right away. On my current rig--I can't see the tires at all. Hence the reason I'm interested in TPMS.

RE: I-10 Thru Houston

Is there any time frame as to when this repair might be completed?

RE: EPass Extra thoughts

Thanks to all. After we have a better idea of where our journey goes, we'll probably buy an Extra pass for one vehicle. Being from the YeeHaw wild west, our "Pass" means more like "Passable or imPassable." You know; tipped over tater trucks, folks that can't fathom snow driving, things like that. Looking forward to seeing more of the U.S. this year. Thanks again.

EPass Extra thoughts

Anyone on here have info on the EPass that one can buy in Florida and use in other states? This would be for a pick up and travel trailer. As of yet, no real routes planned, but traveling through Florida is much better on the toll road. I know the pass is useable in 18 states, and am interested in how much a RV adventure would use this option if one traveled Pennsylvania, etc. Also, what are some examples on rates to use the toll roads in a RV? Thanks

RE: Tire pressure monitors

Thanks for the come backs. I wasn't sure about adding air with the non flow through type. I'll be buying them soon.

Tire pressure monitors

Pros and cons about flow through or non flow through TPMS valves? Our trailer is just wide enough to block any view I have of the tires, and I'm investing in a TPMS system before the season begins. Thanks

Route into Gatlinburg

Anyone here have knowledge about the best route into Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge from I-95? There is I-26 that is close and also hwy 441 that has switchbacks and tunnels. We're going to be towing a 30 ft. trailer. Also, what about Dollywood? Worth it? Thanks

RE: Now up to 715 campsites

My hat is off to you sir. Now---for a real thrill, how many miles have you RV'd? I bet you will be surprised. Thanks for the info.

RE: El Paso Wally docking

Thanks to all----.I too, have spent some time behind the badge, and try to avoid issues with my fellow man. Just travel'in down the road. The comment about meth cookers in MT is funny. What isn't cooked there come up from the Golden State, through Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana to the oil fields. Those people are the exception up here. I did check out the WalMart in Las Cruces and the truck stops. Hopefully, I won't get banished for the above comments--I'm very sensitive. Happy New Year

RE: El Paso Wally docking

Well, we have a couple "wild & crazy guys" we travel with. You know--Smith & Wesson, and they bring their friend, Rugar. We don't want trouble at all, just traveling through. Thanks for the tip about Anthony.

El Paso Wally docking

If all goes well, we're planning a trip that includes passing through El Paso, TX. My question is; is anyone on here concerned for their safety if parking at a WalMart in the area? We've stayed many times at Wallys, but am somewhat concerned about this area, given the recent shootings and being so close to the border. I know this isn't a PC question, but I'd really like to know your thoughts.

Our 2016 Cougar fifth wheel literally fell apart on us. Yep, slide, roof sheeting and rubber coating, pin box flexing up into the bottom of the rig--list goes on. It looked really good and was a nice floor plan. Run!

RE: Suggestions please!

The OP wrote about an encounter at Craggy Wash. These people are everywhere, and being concerned about more of these "meet ups" might cause you to top RVing. We've met people that were horrible, but we will not let them stop us from travel. I think it might be called "situational awareness," where we try to watch what is happening around us. Don't let some jack *&( spoil the day.

RE: 24 - 26ft Rear Kitchen? USED (With deep slide for dinette)

Off the original subject---about bouncing rear kitchen issues. We just place a sofa pillow in the cupboard and all is well. The coffee pot sits on the counter and doesn't move. Maybe it's the ride of our ORV..??

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

I would like to thank the moderators for allowing this topic to be discussed. So of us are not afforded the opportunity to speak up without fear of criticism.

RE: Texas road map

Thanks for the responses. I'll check out the website listed. Upon re reading my post, I realized I misspelled "get." Funny how "gat" was in my mind when thinking about Texas.
