RE: What's Opened?

Ohio State Park hiking trails and lakes are still opened. State park lodges, campgrounds, cabins, golf courses and all restrooms are closed. Each State Park can determine if the trails need to be closed due to overcrowding.

RE: RV living and registering child for 1st grade.

I don't know Pa laws, but am a retired school administrator. Is your mailing address the campground? Is the campground within the school district? Most importantly do you live at that address? If all answers are yes, your children can legally attend the school district. However, if you do not reside at the campground you reside outside the district and cannot enroll.

RE: Coronavirus practical issues

This is what I copied on Facebook. It has a stick figure with a smile. "This Is Bob. Bob is not panicking. Bob listens to scientists instead of news media. Bob washes his hands all year long because he's not gross and knows basic hygeine. Be like Bob. We are paying attention to the CDC and other scientists. This is not, as some would have people believe, a political ploy either by the right or left, but is a real problem that needs to be addressed with caution and concern.

RE: 1st TT arriving tomm, what is your check list for setup?

Someone mentioned having an experienced RVer there and that is an excellent idea. When my daughter got her first, she videotaped the walk through so that if she had questions they could refer to it. Open every cupboard, awning, etc, close everything and make sure it works well. Try everything! We just purchased a new TT and DH will go under it to make sure that all is secure, I will check everything inside including opening windows. Welcome to camping or RVing whichever you prefer. You will never regret traveling all over this beautiful country. When you have questions, ask here, there are so many expert people here that have helped us a lot over the years.

RE: Investing in "EcoPro Products" Protection

Thank you all!! This is exactly what we thought. I just wanted to hear from the "real pros of RVing." Our new TT is in and we have annoyed the dealer by not financing it with them, not adding this protection stuff, and not purchasing a hitch from them. We found the hitch for about half the price the dealer offered. The final annoyance will be when we go to pick it up and go over it inside, outside, under and over before taking it. When DH went to pick up our new 5th Wheel, he was in a hurry because I was home one day post surgery. He did a quick inspection, did not look under and the opening circles for wires, pipes etc were about 3 inch open circles. We did not know it until we found that mice had a super highway into the camper. He caulked all openings, evicted, and all was well, just every annoying. We will not make that mistake again.

Investing in "EcoPro Products" Protection

We have purchased a new small TT. The dealer just called and asked if we want them to do the EcoPro Products protection. There is an exterior shield that protects painted surfaces from damage caused by road debris, stone chips, insects, etc. and a microbrepelent used to prevent minor tears, damage, stains on drapes, carpet, cargo areas and ventilation systems. The cost of this is $1,000. The guarantee is for 10 years and we have kept RV's that long. We have a car we bought used that had a similar protection done and now it is peeling and spotting. Our RV is stored inside and kept clean. Has anyone done this? Would you recommend it. Thanks!

RE: Fifth Wheel to TT?

We have had a smaller 5th wheel for over 10 years. We decided to downsize to a small TT. We loved our 5th wheel and have taken it all over the country but we are downsizing to less weight and smaller. We plan extended trip west, maybe to Alaska and into the Canadian Rockies. Fully loaded we are dropping over 3 thousand pounds. We pick it up on the 9th so we will see how it goes.

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

No due to price, but there is just not enough information. I would be concerned that someone has a drain, hose, and extension cord from his house and we would be in the driveway or backyard. (Joking...kind of!!)

RE: Crossing into Canada from Maine

I was reading a question about coming south from Alaska and going through Canada. If you have had even one DUI or other felony they will not let you into Canada if they discover it.

RE: Hitch Question

Thank you! When my husband asks me to post a question that I (obviously) know nothing about I end up posting it so wrong. Thanks for clearing this up for me. Your answer was a lot of help.

RE: Murphy Bed vs. Separate Bedroom

Campbikemom - Yesterday we purchased the Rockwood 2104S with Murphy bed. We are downsizing from a 5th Wheel. I agree with the big TV instead of upper cabinets. We have camped for 40 years and the only time we have used our TV was when we had weather concerns which we can get on our phones now. We are going to live with it for a little while but will probably replace it with a cabinet. Just a thought for you.

RE: Murphy Bed vs. Separate Bedroom

Man I have to do an eye roll at some of you. I grew up backpacking and living large in a popup and in my adulthood have continued to backpack, tent it at drive-up sites, had my own popup, and now have a single-room travel trailer. Never would "mommy and daddy time" for the 30 nights a year we camp even be remotely entertained in the decision on what type of camper to get. Thanks for the input from those of you that have one. It sounds like 90% of the people out there who have a murphy bed appreciate the pros of having one vs. the potential cons. Especially with the type of campers that we are I think it will be the best bang for our desired footprint. We did a walk through of a couple Rockwood 2509S models the other day (a 2019 and 2020) and I really like them. 25', a u-shaped dinette, and two pantries is amazing. I really wish you could order campers without an "entertainment center." They are so much wasted space. In the case of the 2509 there is no upper cabinets in the kitchen in lieu of a space for a big TV. Annoying considering we'll never use a TV.

Hitch Question

We are downsizing from a 5th wheel to a small TT. We just purchased a 2104S Rockwood. The length is 22'4", the Unloaded Vehicle Weight is 4841 and the Base Axle Weight is 4168. What is your recommendation for a hitch. Our Chevy Duramax Silverado has a receiver. Would you recommend an equilizer hitch? Which one? We do want stabilizer bars. Thanks for all your help!!
