RE: Check Me....I am OK with this set-up

Go for one ton not 3/4 you will never regret it. And if you plan to go west to the mountain states get the 6.7L

RE: Places to camp....?

Do you need FHU? You can look at Freecampsites for free or cheap CG. Maybe not FHU tho. The Left Coast will be pricey.

RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

You are obviously immune to any suggestions outside your determined plan. But how the heck to you come up with 12 sq/ft? 1 ft high by 1.5 or 2 ft wide comes out the 1.5 to 2 sq/ft. And has been pointed out you can taper the front of this extension, in a wedge shape, to minimize drag. Where you come up with 3 mpg is another rear orifice extraction.

RE: UPPER PINE CAMPGROUND, YOSEMETE

We had a 34 ft fiver and managed the roads but it was slow and very careful maneuvering around the narrow roads, boulders and big trees. Backing into the site took something like an hour, or so it seemed when we got to it. That's why I suggested those sites near the entrance if you can get one. The 100 series of sites. Look at the map.

RE: Porch light

Just go to a local RV dealer their parts shop will have all sorts of replacement lights, including LED. There is no way for us to know what you have from that minimal description. Take the old one to the dealer.

RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

Asking why? I don't know, I can say that over the years someone asking "why' got me to see something that I overlooked. I can get fixated on some idea and ignore the obvious other solution.

RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

If you want to drive under something less than 7 feet tall it won't be on a roadway. Even low overpasses and such are over 10 feet. And with a trailer that small worrying about air resistance is probably not sensible. It won't be enough to think about unless you are towing with a Yugo.

RE: Looking ideas pop up roof section

Why does it need to fold down, why not just add a section that increases the height to whatever you need? Then weather-proofing will be easier. Otherwise go look at some popup trailers in a dealer's yard.

RE: UPPER PINE CAMPGROUND, YOSEMETE

I may be wrong and I have not checked but I thought North Pines was the only Yosemite Valley cg with large sites for RV. That's where we stayed at site 101 which is right at the entrance and easy maneuvering. The others near there are also very good 103, 105 etc. Those sites are right on the river. Later we grabbed a site that just opened, maybe 517 and had a fun time maneuvering the narrow twisty roads with boulders and big trees as I mentioned. then we had a very hard time backing into the site, but it was worth it for 5 more days in the Valley.

RE: Flagstaff to Flaming Gorge UT or Cody WY to Red Lodge MT

Thermopolis has some free state park hot springs as well as some private ones. And some FHU cg. It's on our list tho I hear the hot springs are somewhat reduced from past years.

RE: Flagstaff to Flaming Gorge UT or Cody WY to Red Lodge MT

I don't believe you'll find FHU around the gorge. Either south at Vernal or up in WY. We stayed at Vernal one time, may have been a KOA You know no RVs are recommended on Bear Tooth?

RE: Flagstaff to Flaming Gorge UT or Cody WY to Red Lodge MT

Flaming Gorge has some excellent boondocking/dry camping spots along the shore on the east side. There are two roads, one that goes on the east side and another on the west. We've been down both ways but did not stop to look at the reservoir. But after the Escapade this summer we are planning to drop down for a week or so of boondocking down there. Check out this vBlog the Grand Adventure. Well worth subscribing to IMO. On one side, I think the west but no totally certain, there are signs along the road informing you what geological era the rocks come from. That starts out in the PreCambrian at the sout end. At the south end is Dinosaur NM which is open again and worth a stop.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Jetty Park in that area is a very nice county park right on the water. You might want to see if you can get in there.

RE: UPPER PINE CAMPGROUND, YOSEMETE

No Yosemite CG have any services. The roads in that cg are very narrow, twisty and there are boulders and big trees right off the road. Try to get the site at the entrance of the park. It is possible to get deeper in the cg but it's no fun.

RE: Verizon 5g as hotspot if anyone has it yet

LOL there are plenty of 'paved roads' west of the Mississippi that have no cell signal. Try driving US 2 in Montana for example. And 5G would require something like 5 or 6 towers per mile to work, assuming no interference like hills and such.

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Hi, Fri., 3/20 - leave Birmingham, AL after school; overnight near Dothan, AL (170mi). - probably Blue Springs State Park. full hookups Sat. 3/21 - drive to Juniper Springs (339mi). 2 nights in the NF campground. no hookups, dump station and hot showers. water available. Sun. 3/22 - canoe Alexander Springs (20 min drive), see the springs at Juniper Springs area. I assume you plan to run down Juniper run in a canoe/kayak. So far as I know this does not run to Alexander Springs. Both Juniper and Alexander are worth a visit. Mon. 3/23 - Or this is a good day to stop at Blue Spring State Park in Orange County possibly. Another good springs for swimming, Manatees will probably be gone by then depending on the weather. Tues 3/24- explore Merritt Island, Cape Canaveral National Seashore, kayak or airboat?; Wed. 3/25 - Kennedy Space Center Thurs 3/26 - after lunch drive to Manatee Springs State Park (197 mi) Chiefland, FL;. overnight in state park (water/electric/dump station) Fri 3/27 - morning explore Manatee Springs or canoe Suwanee River. afternoon Manatee has trails but they are sandy and boring to us, you may like them more. The canoeing on the river is excellent tho drive to possibly to Three Rivers State Park. (182 mi) stay overnight in the state park (water, electric, dump station); Three Rivers is just a stopover to shorten the drive home. Three rivers is another boating park. We didn't explore the trails tho. Florida Caverns isn't too far and the cave tours are mildly interesting, not much compared to the Federal Caves but better than Russel Caverns. (We considered spending Fri night at St. George's Island and move Three Rivers to Sat. night but DH would like to have Sunday free to rest. Sat 3/28 - home to BHM! (245 mi)

RE: 1st RV Road Trip - Florida itinerary

Sounds good except for one thing: do you have reservations? For one thing this is the end of snowbird season and the parks are booked solid. And secondly it is also spring break for schools down here.

RE: Badlands

Yeah if that is the KOA in Scenic SD it is an excellent camp spot plus it is right outside the park entrance.

Making money, what else?

RE: Verizon 5g as hotspot if anyone has it yet

But doesn't your tinfoil hat stop that? Where do you find tinfoil these days anyway? Walmart! Tin Foil Hat They also sell it for your pets... Tin Foil Cat Hat And for the fashionable women, try this: Tin Foil Shower Cap for Women Just proves my point, the first is mylar which is aluminized plastic, and the last one is aluminum foil. Maybe aluminum doesn't block the harmful brain waves like the real tinfoil used to do?
