RE: Jeep Wrangler bumper compatible with Blue Ox baseplate

It should be ok, but it will really depend on the bumper itself. Your new bumper will need to have the same clearance zones (up/down) and side to side and the bumper will need to not be to much taller that it would interfere with the base plate connection points. I've talked with easily a dozen owners with such setups and all worked fine they said. If you are order one of the more name brand bumpers you can probably find somebody with one that can vouch for the setup on many Jeep groups. In some cases you can probably get that question answered by the base plate manufacturer itself. If you have a specific bumper in mind post it up here might find somebody with that setup already that can help you out.

RE: Utah to Idaho

The winds you saw hit a lot of the West pretty hard. That said I've been through both States a few times and you really need to pay attention to the weather reports for the area you are driving. We live in WA State and the Columbia River Gorge between OR & WA gets a lot of winds. My wife checks each of the areas along the route so we know what we're driving into. We saw truckers and RV's taking the exits to park in under passes or rest stops when the winds picked up. Just be smart and know before you go. I do agree with Dave, 15 is a better route IMHO. You might take 40 then grab 89 out of Flagstaff and to Kanab then 389 to 59 to 15. We drove that last section to Kanab and it was pretty good road the whole way.

RE: OR road closures

Pretty wild out there right now. Always check the Oregon DOT's website.

RE: Fresh Water Tank

Try to inspect, you should have had a overflow. These are generally near the top of the tank if it was kinked it could be a manufacturing fault if you are under warranty. Where is the break at, how big is it? You may also contact a mobile RV tech to come check it out too. Here are some recent topics addressing plastic welding that might help, click here And some from the archives, click here

RE: Caution

Just as a reminder to all discussion about hiring lawyers can get a thread shut down. The mention of it once is ok, but continued discussion is where things get shut down. Posts are not allowed in which a local, state, or federal consumer action board and/or legal counsel is/have been involved. This includes posts related to future, ongoing or past lawsuits.

RE: Wheelchairs and Toy Haulers

A close friend is also a Paraplegic, they looked for a few years but ended up getting a custom Class A. Today it think both Newmar and Winnebago build their RV mobility lines. His wife had to do the setup, but most everything was push button and he could do a fair amount. Because he required a nurse 24/7 after a couple years they hung up the camping hat. We really miss going out with them but became to challenging sadly. Do check the used market, it's a niche market so those that have accessible RVs have a harder time selling. If you work with a vehicle customer check with them about to see if they know others that might have what you need.

RE: Recommendations RV sites Heppner Oregon area??

We used to ATV and drove by and used the dump facilities at Anson Write park, pretty nice but a bit old school. It's along "highway" 207 so there is some road noise but not overwhelming. The campground was always busy. Morrow County parks, for a rural community, does a good job with their parks. We normally stayed up 207 at the OHV park and helped early on as it got built. I know you don't want to risk not having a site, and you want hook ups but if you ever feel like giving it a try without check out Bull Prairie Lake Campground

RE: Towing Saturn Vue

Saturn's were a very popular toad for RVers, the whole line up was flat tow able as I recall. A search of the archives will give you plenty of information.

RE: John Day, Oregon, north on OR hwy19

I've been through all three available routes, are just fine with your setup. We've done a lot of camping between Ukiah and John Day and off highway 207 south of Heppner. Even 207 is a pretty good highway. Do check the Oregon DOT TripCheck site to see if there are major construction projects going on along any of the routes.

RE: A/C couldn't keep up. Help?

Comments or suggestions? Thanks in advance! Living in the desert myself, I will say that is oppressive heat. I think your system is doing pretty good in that heat. Camping at Zion 10 years ago temps were around 105° we moved down to Coral Pink Sand Dunes temps were 118° our dual AC ran 24/7 but we had 30 amp to power them, do you have 30 or 50amp? While at the Dunes we were having trouble, the advice I was given was to shade the hot side of the RV as best we could and bring the slides in. We did have a tarp and a sunshade that we put about a 45° angle that really did make a difference in helping our AC, but moving the slide in helped too as it removed that much volume in the RV that the AC had to keep cool. Best advice I'll give, move. Get out of the heat or try to find shade, but moving is the easiest right now.

RE: Dinghy Towing

I'm going to ask to stop the legal debate of what a trailer is on this thread. If you want to debate this topic please feel free to start a new post. It seems that this debate comes up pretty often with some of the same players making their points, all good points, but none the less the OP asked about a specific vehicle.

RE: Back to the '70s!!!!

As much as nobody likes paying more, I don't blame Oregon at all. We're still in Oregon three nights at State parks, a County park and three at a private resort, out of the license plates I see easily 50% are out of state guests. The reliance on the Lottery for funding has come to bite the Parks department hard. I just wish they'd stop the spin about staying at home and say "We need the cash and Oregonians want to go to their own parks," at least that would be honest. Fact is that Oregon needs the tourists, while it won't hurt the parks it may impact the other businesses nearby.

RE: Towing 2020 Chevy Colorado

Bill, I can't help with the directions. But if your own service manager isn't comfortable he/she should be contacting GM direct for clarification. That sure doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling. You might also try calling see if they can assist you, as well as provide clear written directions, so you have the back up for warranty coverage.

RE: CJ5 Flat Tow?

Mainly looking for personal experience, if they’re ok, or a mess at highway speeds? And what speed? If I have to do 55 mph it’ll stay put in the garage, lol. Wish I could help on that, never owned a CJ5, all my experience comes from seeing them on flatbeds at the offroad campgrounds we stayed at.

RE: Mirage Balboa Toy haulers

Steve_Cornell, Here is a search from the archives that might help you out. Lwiddis do you have any actual info on the Mirage Balboa or just spouting off in general terms?

RE: CJ5 Flat Tow?

This is nothing offcial, you may have seen it already but it does address the speed limit for some, usually no more then 50mph. Willys / Jeep Flat Towing (CJ2A, CJ3A, CJ3B, CJ5, CJ7 and newer)
