RE: What do you leave behind when gone for the day?

I leave my fifth wheel behind.. LOL But I have seen lounge chairs.. BBQ grills, Sun shades, and all types of towels and stuff. I don't believe there is a big problem of stuff disappearing. At least it has never happen to me. I've been Rving for over 40 years. Hope this helped you. Oh and I have also seen the pick nick table that belongs to the camp sight moved into the parking area.

RE: Which Oregon Highway?

They are pretty much the same in my opinion. The more scenic drive would be 26 to 35 to 84 longer slower but you get magnificent views of mount Hood. Also 26 and 35 are not as good as 97 or 197 I don't know what your towing or hauling. Big rig stick to 197 97 small rig the 35 would be very pretty. Hope that helps. At first I thought you were at Sisters that's on the coast but I assume your at Three Sisters correct? At any rate drive safe and enjoy the ride

RE: Down to Road trek?

Class Bs are a lot of fun for sure. Lots of ++++ I had one when I was younger and had just gotten married. Loved spending time with the wife and that's a very good thing.. Because Class Bs are very tight. Specially after having an A or C. I sold my C to buy the B and Never a regret. However the older we got the harder it was to live in a small space. So we got rid of the B and now have a fifth-wheel. We are still loving each other and still enjoy each others company (not sure that would be the case if we had kept that B) :-)

FYI. Ford F150 V8

https://i.imgur.com/7iuwk3Ml.jpg Just got back from a 500 mile trip on 101 here in Oregon. Took my F150 and my fifth wheel and wanted to share the results. Traveled 526 miles up and down the Oregon coast. Some times it rained some times it was clear and some times it was very windy Total CGVW 7850. Total trailer weight 7950lbs The truck is a 2018 Ford F150 V8 with tow package. Gas millage was 9.7 mpg. I was very pleased the way the truck handled the load. We have some pretty stiff climbs here in Oregon and I was quite pleased with the power range. Managed to maintain 55 mph (thats the speed limit here on 101 in Oregon)through all the climbs. Breaking seemed antiquate for the job. I would not hesitate to take this truck and combo cross country. JMO. I know we are always talking about TV on this forum and just thought you would be interested in the performance.

RE: Water Damage?

Don't be too certain that it is water damage it could be a whole bunch of things and not water damage. Does the wall feel spongy when you touch it? If not it just might be the glue they used to put it on or it might be the wall paper or it might be all kinds of things and not water damage. Could have gotten something spilled on it at one point and now just does that because the glue has been compromised.

RE: Vancouver, B.C. to Whitehorse via Vancouver Island?

I have made that trip and the roads on the island are very good. I stayed on the East side of the island and had no problems with the road at all. I took the ferry from Port Hardy to Bella Coola. Then up the Hill to the mainland fun trip.

RE: Hwy 97?

Should be a pretty easy ride. 97 is a good highway. I travel it with a fifth wheel with no problems at all.

RE: California and Oregon coast in winter

You must be a tough son of a gun to want to visit us in Feb March and April.. Good for you.. I mean, it's rainy but I don't think you need to be all that tough to endure winter on the Oregon coast. There's not a single month of the year where the average high drops below 50 degrees and the average low barely dips into the 30s. No the weather is not cold cold or hot hot, but I have seen it rain day and night for the entire month of March and half of Feb. Not rain rain but soaking drizzle like living in a cloud. Then because our weather is not cold or hot you get mold that forms on anything that is not heated constantly. Tough well maybe tough is the wrong word how about "persistent". Constantly drying things out constantly getting mud and fur leaves out of every nook and cranny of your house, RV, Boat and truck and as far as doing anything outside on days like that you will be looking like you swam a marathon. But nowhere close to the freezing snow you have in Idaho. I would much rather spend winters on the coast than anyplace in Idaho you guys have some nasty nasty cold out that way

RE: Open trailer

Been to Alaska four times and most of the roads are very good.. BUT... The way they fix their roads up there is they tare up 20, 30, 40, miles of it at a time. They just put down gravel and add rain and huge 18 wheelers in a big hurry it gets very messy very quick. So yes your bike would be safe most of the time till you hit one of those stretches of road they are working on..Then not so much. I have broken two windshields bent one axle. Its quite the adventure.

RE: Redwoods National Park, Coos Bay area and Olympic nat park

Thanks, I did see a sunset stare park at Coos. Will aim first for that. Sunset beach is nice but they have problems with the water in the bay lots of times. Sewage and all. They are also not close to any Dunes. Or off road trails for motored vehicles. The Gardens are beautiful but very restricted on what you can do at them.

RE: Redwoods National Park, Coos Bay area and Olympic nat park

Lots and lots of places to do that sort of thing once you get past Coos. There are many campgrounds that cater to the dune buggies and bikers and also your jeep. Winchester Bay has a huge campground that caters to the dunnies. Also Oregon Dunes KOA , Also Mrytlewood factory Both located just before you get to Houser. There are really just too many to name all of them. But the three I named are quite popular and no you will not have a problem with crowds. I know nothing of the Olympia area, except there are a lot of people that live there.

RE: California and Oregon coast in winter

Most all the parks are open during the winter months. Unless of course a storm closes them down for a few months. You must be a tough son of a gun to want to visit us in Feb March and April.. Good for you.. There will be no shortage of campground space. Make sure to hit Bullards Beach and Harris Beach state parks they are very nice and quite. Of course Harris Beach had to close down last December because of a big storm but they were open again by June. Make sure you bring your rain gear with you. You need not bring umbrellas, very rarely does the rain come strait down.Its always side ways. Good Gortex jacket and pants would be a great help. :-) Have fun with your visit and if you like inclement weather your going to love it here.

RE: Orlando outside of Disney

I would drop sea world and certainly do Universal Studios. Sea World is just not worth the money.

RE: Camping World GONE ? Replaced by Gander RV ???

I would bet Camping world is in debt up to their eyeballs. Marcus always talks about going public but never does I think they are up side down on their numbers. Best way to make a living in RV gear is to open a shop right next to a Camping World...

RE: Grand Canyon trailer village

I would guess it's only a problem if your over 28ft. Kind of like going under a bridge if it says clearance 13ft you only will have a problem if your over 13ft. I can't be certain of course maybe 13'1" might make it but one never knows till your under it.

RE: Should I make reservations or wing it?

You will find that lots of folks wing it and lots of folks get reservations. If your not the kind who cares when you stop and for how long and you are very easily satisfied Walmart parking lot, Cracker barrel parking lot, side of the road and happy to be there then don't worry about reservations. If you are the kind that likes your creature comforts electric, water, dump stations cable TV wifi then you had best make reservations. There is no right or wrong way to do it. So have fun and do what ever fires your rockets.

RE: Anchorage Campgrounds, bad as they say?

We liked Centennial Park just outside the city. We don't use campground facilities so I cannot attest to those but the camp sights were not tight and it was very pleasant. Stayed there in September for a few days.

RE: Highway 101 Nothern CA to Newport Oregon

Very easy run gets a little tight between Eureka and Cresent City but just for about 10 miles but other than that it's smooth sailing. Give yourself enough time to stop in Bandon have lunch in old town and see the beautiful coast line Semis run this road all the time, so size and length are not an issue. while a nice road 101 does of sections that are twisting roads, so just don't be in a hurry. Yes they do that's what makes it tight (click on tight)
