RE: The latest on Oregon State Parks

Yep another example of common sense. The virus can only get you between the door and the table, once seated you are perfectly safe so remove your mask and have a great time. ;)

RE: The latest on Oregon State Parks

Strange things have/are happening in my opinion. Close the rv camping in parks but leave the rest areas along interstates open. Close the hospitals from taking care of the sick and injured but leave the pot shops open for business. Now the latest crazieness heard today, we will reopen the resturants but people will have to wear a mask and tell who they are and where they live in case someone gets sick later. Really, I don't know what you can eat through a mask, maybe soup but I'm pretty sure you would get it in your ears trying to strain it through your mask. Our county in Southern Oregon opened its parks to self contained RV's starting yesterday. No restrooms open, no sales of ice, firewood, etc. maintain social dis--- blady blady bla. Ninty space RV park, 4 RV's pretty easy to maintain all the requirements. We sure enjoyed getting the RV out for a couple of days and not being able to listen to the 6 o'clock doom and gloom show. Great camping and great weather, we all enjoyed the break. Tinbender

Hmmm, interesting, storm predicted for the California/Oregon state line area and all the chatter is from people in Northern Washington.;)

RE: Frameless windows question

I also worried about "no breeze" because of the narrow opening abilitty of them but like the salesman said, "turn the Fantastic Fan on low and you have all the breeze you need" Darned if he wasn't right. Tinbender

RE: Black Tank--Borax?

I guess everybody has the method that works best for them. So here is mine, 20 years, and 3 trailers, never a problem. Dump black tank, flush hose with grey tank, hook up black tank flush (last 2 trailers) run for 5 -10 minutes, always suprising to see what comes out after several minutes of clear water. Add 2-3 gallons of water to both tanks, throw in small hand full of Borax or White King D and a small amout of Calgon and drive home. Never had an odor or compaction problem so I ain't changing anything!! Tinbender

RE: Traveling in Oregon

Well the biggest problem for us that live here is not the smokers but the smell of the crops in the ground this time of year. Between the Weed and the Hemp farms you can hardly draw a breath that isn't slightly skunky. Tinbender

RE: hwy 199

Just traveled from Grants Pass to Crescent City pulling a 37 foot fifth wheel with a dually. The trip was fine and although the road is a little narrow in places there is room to stay in your lane. In the redwoods close to Crescent City there was one turn with a redwood on the inside of the curve that obviously had been hit many times. I did cross the yellow line a little on that turn. Definitely an okay route with an RV. Just pulled my TT through there again last week. I know the tree your talking about, most of the missing area in the trunk was done with a chain saw so the bigger rigs wouldn't be scuffing it on the way by. Just my opinion but 101 south of Cresent City is far worse than any part of 199 Tinbender

RE: Murphy Bed vs. Separate Bedroom

We bought the Rockwood Mini Light 2507s with Murphy bed this year, and have spent about 30 nights in it this Summer. We love it!!! Mattress is travel trailer standard but with a foam toppper it is just fine. As stated above the bed doesn't fold it is a true Murphy bed and stands up against the wall. When closed all you see is a finished wall and cabinet. With the bed up and the slide out there is a huge amount of room for a small trailer.and lots of kitchen counter space!!! Down side: The bed stows down into the pass through area that is common in most TT and uses up a lot of that space, this worried me during the "gonna buy" stage but decided it could be lived with. As it turned out it is fine, plenty of storage. Speaking of storage we were amazed at the amount available in this small trailer, our old trailer was 2 foot longer and we were crowded for storage. We took everything out of the old TT and placed it in the new and we found we have empty cabinets, kind of a strange. I would also recommend that you look at the Rockwood Mini Lite 2509s (with bunk beds) We found the brand to be much better built especially in the fit and finish than most other brands we looked at, and we looked at a lot of them.

RE: RV Parks near Crater Lake National Park

Collier or Jo Stewart are very good choices, both great parks with their own draw. The up side is that they are just far enough away from the Crater Lake area so you aren't caught up in the Tourist Frenzy that occurs at close by camp sites. Just my opinion. Tinbender

RE: Route 42 in Oregon

In my opinion, 42 is a much better and safer route. Of course it all depends on your starting and stopping points and your need for speed.

RE: RV sales are slipping

I look around as I travel and I think; Jeezee we have to be reaching a saturation point here pretty soon. There are RV's of every discription parked and stored everywhere. I'm talking about the already sold units parked in storage yards, house yards, fields, campgrounds, RV parks, driveways, and on the streets. There is just a huge amount of them out there. Then there are all the "beyond usable condition" units left on the side of back roads and in fields everywhere. Perhaps it is time the industry slowed a little.

RE: Route 42 in Oregon

42s from Bandon to Coquille is a little windie and narrow in spots but very doable. From Coquille on to I-5 42 is all good except for a little bit between Remote and Camas Valley. Pull my 24 foot TT through there all the time. Beautiful Drive. Just after you cross the bridge and before you turn onto 42 and into Coquille there is a county park on the left side, great place to stop, lots of room to park.
