Benchmark atlases or ???? Hiking trails on something else?

Someone told us that another brand of atlas also had hiking trails on them? We currently use benchmark atlas to pick out boondock spots (among other things)...but is there an atlas type thing that has hiking trails on them as well?

Cabover sheets? Cotton?

Looking for sheets for my class C cabover. I did search on here but found nothing? Am I naming it wrong? 60" wide x 96....so long queen. We have made them in the past but they must make them right???

RE: Cab/living area COLD weather insulation - comforter?

The windshield cover maybe? but we are often not in one place for weeks....maybe a few days and mozey on. The quilt worked REALLY well. We could have frost on windshield from our breathe and it would be 45 5o 50 in living area while sleeping. Did I say I like it cold to sleep? I just bought from Ollies two quilts (not as beefy as the first one) that we will cut up, fit as a double layer with a board pocket/thin and sew to hold it in place between mattress and short barrier (so you don't fall over the side...a few inches). That board worked well last time except that it was too thin (1/8" plywood?) and broke at some point when he was taking it out. So I think we have our answer. Ollies quilts were $29.99 (and a few 39.99 or 49.99 if they had other stuff like pillows with them) so a bargain. Thought about moving blanket but hubby was worried about those rough blankets spewing rough particles on the bed....

Like the thinsulate idea...thank you.

RE: Cab/living area COLD weather insulation - comforter?

Sewing two quilts together/YES....that is where we are going now...kind of had no choice but we have a beefy sewing machine (that we will be getting rid of as we move to full time) that will easily sew two together.

Cab/living area COLD weather insulation - comforter?

Okay, we have always used a heavy weight quilt to hang on the cab over bed down to the floor of cab for cold weather camping (which we do a lot of). It isolated the living area from the driving area and gave us a smaller area to heat. I got rid of the one we had thinking it would be easy to replace. Well NOPE....they are all thin or want $130 to replace the twin quilt. I really liked the quilt because we could flip it up on top of bed when we didn't want to use so no storage issue...it was always attached with sewn pocket/thin board between mattress. What do you use? I spent about 1.5 hours shopping local and found nothing (I also want a darkER color because we have a dog and don't want to be hitting the laundromat too often). Spent 2+ hours online looking for heavy weight comforter/quilt with no results unless I wanted to spend $120 and still no guarantee it would be heavy just pricey. So tell me what you use? It worked great by the way to make it a smaller area to heat in COLD weather.

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

We did just buy a smaller compressor dehumidifier that we will use when we volunteer in florida and when we are NY at kids house in summer...both plugged in. donna

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

We do have a multiple battery solar system. Yeah, need to keep a window cracked as well. We also carry a extra propane tank (extra bbq style...so don't plow into us/boom). donna

RE: Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

Forgot to say that we mostly boondock so solar is our power...so electric heat pretty much out of question. Thanks for the tip on spilling damp rid...didn't know that. So open vent and window is pretty much and run heat on the wall instead of mr. buddy and vent shower after usage...cooking run exhaust fan.

Does damp rid have a place in rving in winter/cooler temps

due to rv being closed up. We will begin our full time adventure in early September but for many years we have been quasi retired and used our rv for 2month long trips. This past winter in AZ but at sons so cooler temperatures (like high teens) with rv closed up and condensation...I was wiping the windows a lot. Any ideas how to combat this when you are trying to keep it warm in rv. We had been using Mr. Buddy so he was part of the problem but 2 adults and one lovely dog in rv that is 24 feet long was pouring moisture into the air and then add showers. Any ideas for cutting down on moisture that doesn't involve me running around wiping windows.

RE: beginner full-time

I get it...there does need to be a plan for WHEN we no longer do this. Since hubby has been dealing with 5 hour drives to rescue his parents when help doesn't show up (along with his siblings taking turns), he is adement that we be near our children (which is ny state but one is in AZ/off grid...too hot). So we have decided that we will eventually settle there and build a small house. We are 65 and 66 and in fairly good shape...although his knees have been a problem for many years (like age 30!) and I suspect we will be okay until at least age 75 but that gives us a number to go buy...thank you. I asked him, what about living in our kids driveway forever...he's like a nope. And yes, if one of us drops dead, things will change dramatically and no one wants to have "OH ****" moments and to scurry around. The good part for our kids is that we can be of help now (babysitting and help with diy stuff) and we are getting rid of our stuff NOW so they don't have to do it. One son is receiving a lot of it toolwise. Thank you for this perspective...which I probably needed more than hubby.

RE: Florida domicile people do you stay 6 months there?

Yeah, NY makes me wonder...greedy. We will be selling house end of July in NY but have grandchildren in NY so May - September? and possibly a month around christmas would be NY. It is not like we will never return...have ties there. Donna

RE: Is there an online listing for Army Corp of Engineers parks?

Thanks. I searched under south dakota and did find some COE places along with others. That will work for me. Thanks youuuu.

Is there an online listing for Army Corp of Engineers parks?

I know there is a book but reviews say it is missing some. I have looked online but so far no luck in finding a campground list. I see lakes but no info about the campgrounds on those lakes. Anyone have anything? Donna

Florida domicile people do you stay 6 months there?

I read somewhere that florida domicile requires 6 months stay in florida? Does anyone that uses florida as domicile stay that long? NY (high tax state) is currently our domicile (full time beginning late july 2021) but thinking about using florida since we do spend about 3 months there each year (sometimes 4). Am I being too anal? Donna

RE: beginner full-time

AND thanks for the guy that recommended the COE campground book...never knew there was one...had a map once and we have stayed at a couple in florida. Going to spring for that one! We also are charter members of boondockers welcome, had a year of harvest hosts, and use the BLM lands and national forest service lands well!
