RE: Central Utah

Brian ... were those beautiful photols taken while out on day trips from a town with the Wrangler, or do you tow the Wrangler behind your Class C motorhome and then scout around with the wrangler from a campsite where your RV is? Wrangler goes every time. I'm finally getting to the point in life that I'm not always in a hurry to get somewhere, and many of the places I've driven past will now get a thorough exploration. I boondock over 90% of the time... good thing I live in the west!

Boondocking Near Death Valley

Over Easter weekend we did a little boondocking across the "street" from Death Valley National Park on the east side not far from Shoshone. Here is my first attempt at drone videography of the location... California Boondocking near Death Valley

RE: Craggy Wash B LM near Lake Havasu City AZ

Across the Colorado River from Parker and a few miles west of Earp is a very large area available for boondocking. Your cell phone and TV will work great on the hill, room to spread out, and the views aren't bad either. The area starts along the western boundary of the CRIT Reservation (Colorado River Indian Tribes). Official information for this area is available at the Needles CA BLM Field Office.

RE: Hauling a 4-door Jeep behind a Sunseeker or Similar?

Hello, We are looking to purchase our first motorhome and have narrowed down our wants list to a Used Class C around 32' feet with the double bunks in the mid-section. We want to haul a 4 door jeep for our family of 5 behind the rig. I've been specifically looking at the Forest River Sunseekers because they along with the Thor Chateau seem to have a higher hauling capacity then the other brands built on the Ford 450. Does anyone have any real life, been then, done that tips on hauling a jeep behind their Class C? Am I right in looking toward only those two makes/models? I haven't looked at any class C RVs since I got my Sunseeker in 2012. It's much shorter than what you want at 23' and no slides but is built on the Ford E450 chassis, and I tow a rather heavily modified Wrangler JKU with it. I chose the Sunseeker almost exclusively for it's holding tank size, though I thought I liked the floorplan too. The freshwater tank in the rig is 55 gallons and since we boondock almost exclusively, the extra size tank is important to me and probably will be for you too with a family of 5. As with almost all RVs, be ABSOLUTELY certain that the loaded with stuff for camping weight is well below what you "expect" you'll need. People almost always seem to underestimate how much stuff they'll take with them and can easily be overloaded. I won't recommend one brand over another. Does it suit your needs? BUY IT! https://rv-camping.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/RVTowingJeep.jpg

RE: Getting stuck in sand

These are some great ideas other than the kitty litter... not seeing how that will help in sand. Great for sopping up leaked oil if you tear open your oil or transmission though. Gary mentioned above about crossing washes. This can be a much bigger deal than many realize. Some of these crossing points are just steep enough that you can get really hung up either dropping in or trying to climb out, and if that happens it's usually not something most folks are prepared to extricate themselves from. Also, a passing storm far from your location can cause a flash flood many miles away washing away your exit road. Watch the weather, presurvey your route if possible, be as prepared as possible including jacks and timbers if you really are heading into remote desert country. Just my opinion after a few years of desert boondocking. Have a great trip!

RE: Best GPS maps for iPad

"You Need A Map" is a pretty good mapping program with high detail when drilled down. I like it to keep track of where I am, not to find where I'm going.

RE: Towing a 4x4 jeep for beginners

It's not well known that there were no 1996 Wranglers. '95 was the last year of the square headlight YJ, and '97 the first year of coil spring suspension TJ. So what Jeep model do you have? I applaud you for trying to do it right the first time. I'll start by offering the following link to an article I wrote about the subject... Towing a Vehicle With an RV Only you can determine how often and where you plan on towing your Jeep vehicle, but armed with that knowledge, picking the equipment that will work best for you is just some research away. Don't hesitate to PM me if you'ld like more information...
