RE: Help me plan our trip - The Dakotas

This summer we will be running west on US 12 through the Dakota's. A couple of stops I'm looking forward to is the Shadehill Recreation area in Shadehill SD. Supposed to be a nice camp. While there we are going to visit Lemmon which has a petrified wood park and museum and some neat shops. Next is the Enchanted Highway between Regent ND and Gladstone ND. Regent has a good overnight campground. Then on to Teddy Roosevelt NP. I'm thinking of staying in Bowman at the Twin Butte Campground. Supposed to be OK and a good home base if the campgrounds near the NP are full. As mentioned Medora ND looks like a good spot too. There is a Medora Musical every night, looks like fun cowboy stuff!! We are going to be there in mid August or so, our RV has Mass. Plates. Hope we into each other.

RE: Calculated MPG

I keep track of our long trips. For example. With our 2020 26XD class C on a Ford E450 chassis used about 1,350 gallons of gas on last years 9600 mile cross country trip. We spent about $3700 on gas. That comes out to 7.1 GPM. The average cost was around $2.75 per gallon. This year we are planning another cross country trip of roughly the same distance. So out of my new cowboy hat that I bought in Eagle Nest NM on our trip last year picked this years fuel cost as being around $3.75 per gallon. Roughly $1350 more this year. I suspect it will be more though. Anyway, This won't stop us from going, it just means I have work 4 days per week instead of 3 to make up the difference. Retired but healthy knock on wood! For me I like to plan ahead a little. Oh I also added in another 10% of our campground costs, but that is another thread.

RE: US 12 Lolo MT to Kooskia Id

Thanks for this information. I'm not sure how far west we will go yet. We ran the lengthy of US 2 four years ago but our destinations were Glacier National and US 101 at Olympia around the loop then south.. This trip we want to check out the Dakota's, Montana and Idaho more closely. So at this time I'm not sure how far west We will go. Fortunately we have plenty of time and if it gets to close autumn we'll head south.

US 12 Lolo MT to Kooskia Id

Laying out our 3 to 4 month 2022 trip. Our plan is to pick up US 12 west of Minnesota and run to somewhere in Oregon with numerous stops along the way. We will be traveling in our 2020 26ft Class C with no tow. I'm looking at the section of US 12 between Lolo Mt and Kooskia Idaho. I see that it runs through mountains of the Nez-Perce Clearwater National Forest. I've been Checking it out on Google maps but I'm wondering if any folks here have been over it in a class C similar to ours. I looks like a good camping area and exploring. As always your advise is appreciated.

RE: Theodore Roosevelt National Park

Great information. We enjoy hunting down the smaller parks and monuments. Nowhere near as crowded and therefore able to get a better choice camping sites. Our usual plan is, a couple of weeks ahead, I grab the list of campgrounds I am making up right now, and start laying out our stay. So far I've found that reservations are accepted in the South unit but the North unit is first come first served. Both boondocking Which is fine with us!!

Theodore Roosevelt National Park

So, I'm putting together ideas for our trip this next summer. After the Enchanted Highway we would like to visit the North and South sections of the park. After checking out the campgrounds and the distance between the North and South sections. I thought I should ask for ideas on how you folks did your tours of these areas. So it looks like we should do the south side first, then move to the North side. We are touring in our 26ft class C no tow. We will be doing the interior roads in our RV, if the roads are able to handle it. Should be in the area around mid-july an can spend a week or so in the area. I won't be able to make campground reservations more than 2 weeks in advance because I'm not really sure when we will be in the area. As always your suggestions are always appreciated.

RE: Gas prices

We are planning a another cross country trip this summer. This time across the northern states. My wife and I are retired and are blessed to be able to still work part time. We increased our work days from 3 to 4 days per week. Going to follow the Great River Road to US 412 then US 412 West until it ends. Not going to let these insane price increases change our plans.

RE: Best wax for fiberglass................

I use "Rejex". It's just the best ,so far. I have had great results getting the bugs off the overhang with this product. They just don't stick to the fiberglass. Easy on easy off.

Great River Road

I'm beginning to plan our trip for next year. Going to pick up the Great River Road in East Moline Il. and run to Minneapolis. Which side do you folks prefer. The east side or the west side of the Mississippi?

RE: interstate 40 from New York to Las Vegas

So...If for some reason law enforcement decides to check out the interior of my RV and find the cash I keep handy, maybe $500, for emergency or whatever use, they can confiscate it??

RE: RV surveyors

Excellent, this is what I had in mind.

RE: RV surveyors

OK. OP here. Maybe I posed my question wrong. I'm really not interested in whether someone would make a long distance purchase of an RV. My question is :Given the cost of used RV's it's interesting that there aren't certified RV's inspection services available that specialize in pre-sale inspections. As to my son in laws situation, the RV sold before he had a chance to really get further into the details and while we were discussing this RV, the thought of RV surveyors came to me and I thought I would put the question out here.

RE: RV surveyors

Both very good suggestions.

RV surveyors

My SIL is thinking of buying a used pivately owned Class C. He lives in Providence RI and the RV is in Texas. The seller says it's in very good condition, as I would expect him to say. Does anybody know if the RV industry has licensed RV Surveyors, like the boating industry? A service for hire that evaluates the integreity of the unit for sale and gives an honest market value of it.It sure seems like something that would come in very handy in a situation like this, or if a buyer is new to RVing and needs a professional opinion on a rig that's for sale.. Just a thought.

I-80 Milesburg Pa to Porter PA

I'm booked at the Dubois Pa KOA next Wednesday 8/18. I'm looking at I80 east of there and it looks like a big project on the eastbound side which is where I had planned to head. I'm thinking of alternate routes but the pickens look slim. I'm heading to the Tri-state RV park in Matamoras Pa. Any suggestions are appreciated.
