RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

...snip... Update: However, the "rv resorts/parks" are mostly old, tired and 90% mobile homes. Some were neat and clean, others just scary. All friendly. Have found a couple that would do for a short time, but most are slide to slide. Rates good, but again, tired. ...snip...?. BINGO! The RGV is cheap, windy, dirty, tired, but cheap. As far as Rockport or anything north of there, one is giving up 5-10 winter degrees by going 200 miles north. Makes a huge difference in January/February.

RE: Trailering

One of my fellow employees likes to travel with 55 gallon of "Company" gasoline when he leaves town. More "convenient" for some of us to fill up with deductible fuel when RVing. Ed could get to Florida on "free" gasoline when not towing.

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

Use to visit my sister in Miami on long weekends. One way from Central Illinois was over 1,200 miles. 24 hours straight, each way. Got 30 mpg in my VW when gasoline was $0.30/gallon or less than $15 one way. That tells you how old I am. Limit myself to 700 miles/day now.

RE: 5050 miles in 9 Travel Days

Listen to the children. As I was ripping along at 80 mph, I made the comment, "We are making good time". My son brilliantly asked, "Dad, is the emphasis on "Good" or "Time"?" I slowed down. My favorite travel gal once took a week to go 500 miles.

RE: 18" Equal-i-zer Shank - Hitching with Tailgate Down?

Does the proposed extended shank have sufficient rating for the weight of your TT? Reese says to derate the hitch 50% when using an extension and I agree with them. Some don't.

RE: Any RV parks left in RGV?

Park models/mobile homes usually pay rent for the whole year, while RV's may only be there a few months. Which would you rather have for an income? That's why many parks are being populated with permanent models.

RE: Android Tablet eReader

Depends on what books you want to read Kindle app.. it's free Then in the Kindle book store search on "FREE" Thanks. I wondered if the device was capable and will try it out before spending any money.

RE: Android Tablet eReader

Thanks to all. I will check out Kindle, Nook, and the library.

RE: Android Tablet eReader

...snip.... I am feeling lazy or I would search this forum and also Google for those free sources. Good luck. "Your search for 'ereader' found 1 matches". Must be under another topic? I am not too lazy, maybe a little.

Android Tablet eReader

I have a hundred dollar 8" Android tablet and would like to explore reading electronic books on the cheap. What is a good app and book source

RE: Hitch height

Please eliminate some of guessing game. What were your scale weights and what is the tow vehicle and its ratings. Ford, GM, and I assume Ram, all have different "requirements" when it comes to weight distributing hitches.

RE: Forest River Foam Core floor soft spots

I am surprised that Forest River lets their dealers participate in RV shows. Their products are half worn out by the time the show is over.

RE: Forest River Foam Core floor soft spots

Do a little research. From Jayco, "On top of the floor, we install tongue and groove plywood," It may only be 5/8", but they swear it is plywood. That's why my last three trailers have all been Jayco's.

RE: Forest River Foam Core floor soft spots

At the first sign of failure in my Rockwood trailer, I placed a 1/2" piece of plywood over the foam floor in high traffic areas. Removed it and dumped the trailer as soon as possible.

RE: Park Recommendations in the Rio Grande Valley

Have a question about your park does it seem well managed? It is really not "My" park, I have stayed at others. Not particularly bad or good. Much cheaper than the big fancy parks, if that matters. I admit that I am not familiar with the woodworking shop except to know there is one and where it is located. I can find occasional errors in the newsletters, but that is not very important to me. Good location in the middle of a dozen weekly dances. (When there is no pandemic).

RE: Park Recommendations in the Rio Grande Valley

Doe's anyone know of a RV park in the Rio Grande Valley that has both an indoor pool and a woodworking shop? Alamo Rec-Veh in Alamo, Texas has both along with three RC race car tracks, a lake, and reasonable rent.

RE: Having Fun in the Sun!

There must be a lot of people who have been waiting for a South Texas cool down. Got a call from a friend in Missouri who was happy that we might get some frost this weekend. (It was 12 F there). Texas is a great bargain for the temperature per dollar spent. Been above normal most of the Winter with many Air conditioner afternoons.

RE: Puma trailers. Any good?

I had a 25 foot Puma travel trailer and I would give it a 4 out of 10 in a field of 5's. Typical entry level unit, maybe a little below average.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

We can all hope that the 1930's come around again with coal fired freight trains and all that goes with it. Or, we can hope and plan for a better future. Foot draggers are foot draggers, no matter the generation. They never win.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

8-track is the only way to listen to music. It will be around forever, just like $0.23/gallon gasoline.
