RE: Campground availability on shorter notice

We are 3 weeks into a 4 month trip. We have reservations for most of it.... especially for weekends. In NC, we found the campgrounds to have open spots. In Virginia, the park was packed, but it was a weekend. In NY, during the week, you could set up your picnic table in the roadway.... less than 10% occupied.... then came Thursday.. place started filling. By Friday afternoon, not a single site out of 350 sites was available. Now in Maine. The park has several open sites ( it's a Monday). The owner told me that starting this coming weekend, they are pretty much booked solid for the rest of the summer. She said she is getting a few cancellations from people that would have traveled long distances, but for the most part, things are normal, or better than normal for them

RE: Where have all the members gone on this forum?

I have posted a few times but after the snarky responses and a multitude of answers to questions I never asked. I have pretty much given up here. There are other forums out there that have people willing to respond with answers that actually pertain to my post. So that's where I go for help or information. Chuck Hey Chuckbear--- can you list some of the other forums.... thanks

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

So, It's been 5 years since this thread started. I've learned/observed some interesting and innovative carpentry techniques & seen many inappropriate uses of POR 15 and followed some interesting discussions. We've also traveled around the country in our motorhome 5 times plus numerous trips to the keys and a few cruises. Despite the $6/gal diesel prices, we started a 8,000 mile trip a week ago. I hope you can get your project into a state where you can actually get out and use it. I know a great deal of the fun and enjoyment is the build and creativity going into the build , but it's time to see how your efforts actually work ... good luck & happy 5th anniversary

RE: Diesel fuel prices … how is that affecting your RV travel ?

I just sold my 5th wheel. It would cost me $1050 to drive to and from to see my grand children in Phoenix. That's not going to happen. I can fly round trip, do an Airbnb for the same price, saving all that drive to spend with them. Now I'm pondering whether or not to sell my 2000 F350 7.3 truck (165,000 miles). I doubt if I'll put another 2,000 miles on it this year. 1. That extra time with the Grandkids is priceless -- enjoy it! 2. IMO, yes, sell the 7.3. The market is hot and the 7.3 is a very high-demand engine. It might surprise you what you can get for it. Yep--- I was going to trade my 1999 7.3 around 2010... the dealer only offered me a few thousand so I kept it. I finally decided to sell it in 2015 and got way,way more than the dealer had offered me years earlier. A guy actually drove over 500 miles to come see it and buy it. Back to the original subject.... we are at the beginning of a 8,000 mile trip. It does hurt when I go to fill up and it's over $600, but we are going to continue with the trip and enjoy our travels.

RE: RV retail sales drop 31% April year over year.

I believe gas prices plus the lack of any more COVID buyers are both major contributing factors. plus the used units on the market after the covid buyers found that RV'ing is a lot of work and maintenance and were dismayed at the difficulty in getting a campsite if you don't reserve a year in advance

RE: Florida State Parks Early Reservation

Here we go again, a snowbird talking about how Florida would fall off the face of the earth without snowbird money. I’m so sick of hearing that song. I'm with you on that !

RE: towing a f-150 wheels down

As others said, if it's a 4x4, you can tow 4 down. I've been towing my 2015 since new with no issues.

RE: Water Pressure Regulator

I've had a Valterra adjustable regulator for at least 15 years. I had to rebuild it once. Rebuild kits are readily available. Valterra Regulator

RE: Vacation Home Buying Fizzling. RV's too?

Technically can't access or read the article - either link. But I can tell you I live in a resort area on the coast and homes don't stay on the market for more than a few days. And all of them are multi bids way over asking price. 2 houses in our neighborhood just sold in under a day and the numbers are about $200-300k over what the owners paid 2 years ago. Rentals are the same way. Same in Fl.... houses in our neighborhood are typically sold first day or 2 at way over listing price and way over past sales price. A number of them are going to investors who set them up as AirBNB.

RE: Key west

"Before I 75 was put in, I used to drive Tampa to Key West all the way on US 41." ..... except for that stretch of US-1 for the last 3 hours of the trip, eh? Yep -- 41 thru tampa, gibsonton, ruskin,sarasota,punta gorda,etc all the way to Krome Ave, then to US 1

RE: Key west

I travel from Tampa to Key West several times a year. I take I 75 to exit 101, Naples, go about 6 miles on 951 to US 41.( North of this area, US 41 is a very urban road.) Go 82 miles and turn right on Krome Ave ( 997) for 22 miles and it'll put you right on US 1 41 is , to me , a much more pleasant drive than Alligator Alley ( I 75) and taking the route I do, you avoid all the crazy Miami area traffic. Before I 75 was put in, I used to drive Tampa to Key West all the way on US 41.

RE: Monaco Class A - 1983 - project

1- depends on the parts.... if it's chassis parts, check with the chassis manufacturer and auto parts places like Autozone or NAPA For appliance parts, figure out what you need and the manufacturer and google it. For Body parts, you are sort of on your own, but if you search for RV salvage yards, there are about a half dozen large ones that may be able to help 2 - As the previous post said, add solar.... there are lots of experienced solar people on this forum... I'm not one of them 3 - I' not familiar with CA. motor vehicle rules... check with the local office Good luck on your project.

RE: Travel through Atlanta

It's roll the dice with that. Be patient is all and hope for the best. I refuse to go through ATL any more. I go around on 441. Yes. it's slower and through small towns but so much less stressful. Same here-- 441

RE: Parking permits in the GSMNP

I agree JoeH ... that's why the park will likely gain little if any funds from a charge for parking. It will probably cost more to enforce it than it generates. And, what about those with ATB passes? Do those count as a parking pass? And, if we leave the pass on the dash, how do we use it in the park? I have no clue, but generating a parking fee becomes a lot more complex than just 'charge a parking fee', I think. I agree too.... while the concept is OK with me ( I don't mind to pay to park if it helps support the park) , with the openness of the park and multitude of entrances/roads and no kiosks/entry gates, it'll be a bear to enforce. We go there at least once a year and stop for a week or so on our way north ( and sometimes on the way back to FL) and do a lot of hiking so we do use parking at the areas around trailheads.

RE: Parking permits in the GSMNP

...and then I think who will be enforcing the parking if they go to permits ? Rangers are few and far between in the park. NPS will use the parking money to pay a couple of vendor employees to enforce the parking stickers and cite the cars without one. IF any money is left after payroll, federal taxes, and benefits, the park might get it for parking lot maintenance. With 800 sq miles and over 400 miles of roads within the park, it's going to be a huge effort to enforce and educate.

RE: Roadside Assistance

... as a follow-up to my post about my experience with unknowledgeable tow truck drivers and poor service from my road side assistance provider, I wanted to show you what might happen if you don't know how your RV is supposed to be towed and you leave it up to the tow truck driver. Before you have your RV towed, call the manufacturer and get their recommended procedure/technique.... I'm glad I did, otherwise I would have been in the same situation as the people in this story.
