RE: Metropolis IL

I wonder if one can dry camp in the casino parking lot?

RE: Metropolis IL

We've camped at Ft. Masac(sp? SP and it was OK but I don't remember site lengths. We have a 30 ft. MH. Like many IL SPs it has elec. but maybe not water on site. It's not a real active town but OK.

RE: Glacier 2020 vanished

If you mean glacier NP in Montana, we've been visiting and hiking there for 40 years. I'm not minimizing the melt but the glaciers were never a strong attraction for us. They've never been very dramatic from the road and we're not up to hiking far enough to visit up close. Always has been and will be out favorite place to visit, camp, hike.

RE: Propane smell

I would get a new propane warning detector and if it shows propane I would rush to a professional and not mess around with it.

RE: Typical problem we all see in RV parks.

There's 2 topics here. First, we don't usually get noise especially snowbirding along with mostly seniors. Mostly national, state parks, etc. Secondly, "warming up" a modern vehicle is about 40 years outdated. Absolutely unnecessary from a mechanical point of view and for temperature a moving vehicle warms up faster. But I guess you can't go around the park preaching that. But the short answer is- No we don't have that problem.

RE: Motorhome, 5th Wheel or Pull Trailer

No the "Gale" in Galesburg was the name of a founder. I would second the handling concerns of a MH, with or without wind. We just spent a fortune on a "suspension upgrade". No doubt it helps some but wind will still toss it around. It's a tall 12000 lb. box on wheels.

RE: Motorhome, 5th Wheel or Pull Trailer

Having had a small pull behind, then a small 5th wheel and now a 30 ft. Class C, I'm going to say the 5er wins this one. But, consider that you won't be traveling in high wind very much so its not a priority to me.

RE: RV Park Reviews

I like the free app; Park Advisor if you have a smart phone. It's not so much a review but it tells you the ammenities, relative cost and lots of info. Most campgrounds have reviews by users and that helps.

RE: Motorhomes on Mercedes Chassis

I only have 1 complaint and it's a huge one: price. Or specifically what you get in terms of size and ammenities for the buck. A small Class C offers much more bang for the buck. And don't think the MPG of the Mercedes is enough to offset the price; not even close.

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

Anything Weber is good but I have the rectangle black one, maybe 1.5 or 2 ft. long that operates on 1 of the small propane cylinder or can be adapted to accept a bigger tank. It's no fail and just works. So good I use it at home unless I want to grill something big like a chicken or roast then it's a Weber kettle.

RE: Can my truck tow this?

What the heck is that about "making up numbers and frozen children"?

RE: Best places to park the TT @ Yellowstone

There are some great campgrounds(in fact 10 or 12) within the Park that help one really experience the wild of Yellowstone with large animals hanging out near and sometimes even on your site. I would miss not being in the Park if at a nearby private campground. BUT. no hook-ups except for Fishing Bridge which may be down for renovation. About half of the Park campgrounds are reserveable and the others not. We like Mammoth, Madison and Bridge bay.

RE: The buy local fallacy

Said it before- If cars, trucks, etc. were made and serviced like RVs we would laugh and pass.

RE: Can my truck tow this?

Seems like a straight forward yes/no question but to me it's not. "can I" is never the right question. More like "should I". You could tow it and much more but consider steep grades, head wind, braking ability and mechanical wear and tear. Looks to me you would be over the factory capacities with all the weight you would add. I know some don't believe in the 80% rule(tow no more than 80% of the rating") its a good recommendation and allows room for error. Especially if yow want to be safe and keep the truck well over 100,000 miles. But it's your call.

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

Leaving stuff in the RV is great but not in northwestern IL. Anything freezable would between Nov and Apr.

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

Wife has it down pat but it still is one of the most difficult parts of RVing. We have a list to print off breaking down what we need to pack and check off; in the MH, in the refrig, in the towed vehicle. Many items stay in so just check them off. Food is the biggest problem for us. We cook pretty much as at home and each have our favorite foods that we know we can't get on the road. Can't take everything so have to make choices but don't spend time choosing each time. Real free spirits just throw in a few thing and figure they'll buy the rest. But they probably eat whatever is there and we can't do that.

RE: What is an RV Resort??

Define your term of "expensive", "not expensive". To us, expensive would probably be 40 or more. 35-40 borderline expensive. We use various public operated campgrounds which can be expensive but usually less than private and we don't care about pools, golf, etc. but $$ isn't the top criteria, its nature.

RE: What is an RV Resort??

Personally I avoid them but I would expect full hook-ups probably cable, a pool and likely other entertainments. Manicured grounds rather than natural and high cost.

RE: traveling during US Thanksgiving

Based on a little past experience, I predict that traffic won't be bad on Thanksgiving Day but will be the days leading up to it and after. Don't know specifically about those highways. I think it's one of the most traveled periods.

RE: Chevy's I4 2.7 turbo engine

I think that getting lots of horsepower plus good MPG out of really small turbo 4 or even 3 cylinder engines is a great engineering accomplishment that is being over shadowed by the electric bandwagon. For example the Honda Civic with a 1.5 turbo 175 HP that could match up with many of my past V-8s and still get double the MPG. But I'm not convinced that smaller is better in a truck. The power might be there but is the MPG much better than the V8? Is the price much less? I wonder if GM considers this almost a test set-up to see if it flies. I've never been all that impressed by the Ford truck twin-turbo 6's. Not that much better MPG than the simple v8 but more complex.
