RE: That time of year

I'll take a ski trip over any other. My favorite thing to do with clothes on. With the kids as small as they are, the flatness of where I live and the limited vacation time/funds I cant see too many of those happening. Been too long since I've skied the west coast (or the east for that matter) do have a major Disney trip coming up though :) Its usually the local hills in SE MI they suck but their close. maybe the occasional trip to Boyne mt. Out west would be really great. maybe some day!

RE: That time of year

You just need more toys! Put the camper and boat away and got the snowmobiles tuned up and ready to go. I can feel a couple ski trips and ice fishing in the future as well!

RE: More campers than parks

Granted, most campgrounds are full on weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day, especially the popular ones. By the same token, they are pretty much ghost towns during the week. The trick, at least around here on the right coast, is to pick a campground that still has first-come-first-served, ie, unreservable sites. Then do your traveling on Tuesday-Thursday and stay put over the weekend. Weekday camping works for retiree's or people that can work from home but not for the rest of the working class. Its really aggrevating to try and coincide your and your spouses vacation times with open reservations. if you book 6+ months out and have to cancel last minute due to work plans or other obligations its frustrating. Whats the answer? More camp grounds?

RE: Question around Cold Temps

I think if the temp outside only dips for an hour or so i wouldn't worry too much. blowing the lines out wouldn't hurt. id start to worry more if the temps dipped below freezing during the day. your camper would hold the warmer temps for a few hours.

RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

Is it really necessary for me to have a one ton dually to get my petunias home from Lowe’s? yes, but just be safe you better add air bags.

RE: I think I'm stuck.

I would just pay them. Shouldn't be any more than $100. I agree with this. Is $100 worth the inconvenience? Everyones financial situation is different but $100 isn't a lot of money.

RE: Add to camping to do list...

No camping to-do lists! to-do lists are for work days and weekends in the garage. Camping is for getting away from all that. To-do: NOTHING! lol

RE: What do you want in a campground?

I like sites backed up to a tree line. We usually camp with other family members and its nice to face campers towards each other. and close it off with the trucks near the road. keeps the kids corralled and we don't have people behind us. Also, i don't like to hear busy roads. No free ways, highways or local thru roads near us is best in my opinion. Other than that the bar is low. Maybe electric that doesn't go out 12 times a day.

RE: Sound like a good deal?

I'm no finance guru. but in my younger years if I had to finance something I would get the payments low. then make double or triple payments when ever I could. the if hard times came around I could still make the low payment. I was usually able to pay the thing off quite quickly and save on the interest. Jay D. This has been my philosophy. Its either that or go without.

RE: Towing with 4Runner

I wouldn't tow anything heavier than a popup. I think your getting into dually territory there!

RE: wood weight

I love that as well when we camp local. ill go to the local fire wood guy and get a heaping bed full usually like the Thursday before we camp. Its nice to have a rip roaring fire going all weekend long. Less smoke than they guys burning one log at a time from those cheap bundles. Even if im not camping local i try to drive around for a bit when i get to where im going. theres always a local guy selling it at a better value than the camp ground or local gas stations.

RE: RVing YouTube videos???

searching for fix it video's is helpful. theres a few out there on backing up a trailer that are helpful. most of what i've stumbled upon are people rambling too much about nonsense because they are bored lol.

RE: Traveling with glass

RV shelves are cheaply built. Id be willing to wager on the shelf breaking before the pickle jar shatters.

RE: RV'ing 100 Years Ago

Saw the photos in another forum also and RV lifestyle is much more comfortable now. I fell like kids back then who goes to trip with their rv had more fun compared to kids I see when we are parked. Kids are always on the screen. I think that should when in an rv with your kids your rule should be no phones! we should enjoy each other's company and dance. We camp with our nephews alot. they'll hop out of the car and the first question is "can you hook us up to the wifi?" haha "NO!" thats not how campgrounds work boys! I enjoy that part!

RE: New to the RV World - Towing Mirrors Recommendation

Are they necessary for a 24'? My 20' trailer does just fine with stock non tow mirrors. sometimes those little bubbles you stick on the mirrors would come in handy with curbs. for the most part i don't see the benefit on a small/medium sized trailer. I would say wait for a trip or two and just adjust the stock mirrors as necessary. Then invest if you really have issues.

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. I make note of this as well. Brand new trucks and campers in most campsites. tons of campers clogging up the freeway on the weekends. I also live in an area with alot of lakes. Theres seems to be a saturation of $180k+ wakeboard/surf boats. Everyone has a brand new pontoon ect.... seems too good to be true!Saw a lot of the same right before the last big bust. ATV sales places all around town, toys for everyone, then poof. I used to snowmobile a lot more. We loved riding during the last recession. the trails were always empty. Hotels were cheap and plentiful. It was great! BUT i was early 20's and lived at home. The next one probably won't be so fun as an adult lol.

RE: News of RV sales down leading indicator to a recession.

A lot of "business indicator" numbers are becoming meaningless to the "average Joe" who is not a business analyst. Did the RV sales drop compared to last year? 5 years ago? yesterday? last week? Wouldn't it be normal for RV sales to start slowing due to the season?? Heading into late summer and fall - I always thought it was normal for RV sales to fall. In the past it was considered normal - or so I thought. Right, like record low boat sales in january lol. "the sky is falling!" .....oh wait, the lakes are just frozen.
