RE: First RV Grand Design vs Keystone cougar

Out of 150 brands of RVs, Keystone Cougar would be 149th because of the horrible lack of quality control.

RE: Trip to Colorado from Minnesota

I think you are making a mistake by "not getting in too deep" in the mountains. That is what makes Colorado!! If you just stay in the cities up and down the front range, you may as well stay in Minneapolis or Omaha. Stay on I-70 and drive at least to Dillon and Frisco area. The more you see, the more you will want to explore. If you went to the Southern part of Colorado, the scenery is just as great plus the weather would probably be a bit better. The snow usually begins in the North and then moves South. Taking the dogs and renting an RV are two different subjects....both wrong at that time of year.

RE: 4 season package?

Yes, go to Yellowstone National Park in January. Then let us know what you think. Seriously, "4 season"rating seems to be a marketing ploy, much like "The world's best hamburger." Some may have extra insulation in the tanks area, some have heat strips, other minor additions to imply warmth in the winter. Let's face it....if they were truly 4 season we would be camping and parks would be open then.

RE: Trinidad CO to Clayton NM (160->389->551->325->64)

Raton Pass is easy (Interstate)and Raton to Clayton is good 4 lane all of the way, much of it pretty new. I see no reason to take your proposed route. I would stay in Raton, then next night in or near Lubbock, then home to Fredericksburg.

RE: Manufacture vs Dealership

If the manufacturer starts selling directly, then he is competing with his own dealers, which are actually his 'sales force.' The dealers won't stand for this and will drop his line of RVs.

Semis drive it.

RE: An upgraded option for the half ton Pickup crowd

I'm not sure which is worst....the exterior or the interior.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

If a spouse should die while camping, the survivor has bigger problems to deal with than packing up and getting the RV home!

RE: Lander city park, Lander WY

There are two decent RV parks there. We have stayed at the one in town and it was very quiet and easy in/out.

RE: Tunnels, bridges & hair pin turns

You will have tunnels, hairpins, etc in Custer State Park, not Badlands.

RE: Denver area in Winter??

We lived in Monument, CO for 22 years. Save yourself a lot of grief, discomfort and problems. Board the dogs and stay in hotels. Then you just have to worry about icy roads and getting snowed in/out somewhere.

RE: Escapees worth joining?

There is no comparison between the two. Escapees offers activities, benefits, RV parks, and even mail addresses. Good Sam offers poor roadside service if you buy it.

RE: Dog's Sleeping Quarters

I tried something similar for our Cavalier. He didn't like it because he couldn't see us. After standing on his hind legs, whimpering for 20 minutes, he ended up on our bed. Slept like a baby then.

RE: Off grid for first time, need some guidance !

You are forgetting about the water pump, frig, electric jacks, electric awnings and levelers, and other 'mystery' draws. Plan on always having more lights on (bathroom, etc.) You didn't say if you would be in mountains and if so, you'll run the furnace to warm up. I would say one day and one night and your one battery will be drained.

RE: Pueblos West Co to Dinosaur Co

The section of your route with the most curves will be from Canon City to Salida. Goes along the Arkansas River and is slow and curvy, but a pretty drive.

RE: Article - Best Campground in Every State

I camped at Trappers Lake in Colorado for the great fishing. Unfortunately, the mosquitos were SO BAD that we left after just 30 minutes! Miserable afterwards.

RE: Is Lance the “gold” standard

Check out Bigfoot TTs. They are top quality.

RE: Almost lost reservation in AZ park

Highest bidder takes it! You were buying 3 months; they were buying 12 months. If you own a business, whoever is spending the most money $$$$ will usually get the most attention. Pretty simple.

RE: Highway 66 in Oregon

I've driven it pulling a 29' TT and had no problems. It does get winding and has some steady grade so just take it slow and easy.
