RE: Camping Lights

As for the rest of outside lighting usually the only thing used is an old fashioned kerosene type lantern on the table or hanging somewhere. Amazing how well you can see once eyes adapt to available light. You got it! We really like the warm glow of a kerosene lantern. Enough light to see, but not obnoxious enough to light up the entire campsite. Just reminds you of the good old days.

RE: Camping Lights

Too many people either don't care about their neighbors or simply don't think about the effect of their actions on other people. Its obnoxious... X2

RE: Where, oh where to go

If in the Branson area drop south by a dozen or so mile to The Top of The Rock, no camping, but an interesting place to see. Next would be Big Cedar Lodge, lodging but no camping, then comes Dogwood Canyon. Another worthwhile sight to see, but no camping. ( All three of these owned by Johnny Morris of Bass Pro. From there another interesting place is the Golden Pioneer Museum in Golden, MO. Looks like a barn/metal shed, but contains a vast collection that we found interesting. From lunchboxes to Indian artifacts, dinner ware to dolls. Well worth the free admission (donations accepted). Down the road apiece from there is the Office Pub & Steakhouse, Eagle Rock, MO. Some of the best fried chicken ever. Not far from there is Roaring River State Park and finally a campsite! A beautiful park, especially loop 1 or 2 (our favorites). It's a trout fishing park. Just a jump from there to Eureka Springs, AR, which is a small town worth visiting. A little long, but hope it helps.

RE: THOR Motor Coach

Anyone have experience, good or bad with THOR Class C Motor Homes. Currently looking at many different Brands, and Thor just happens to have a floor plan the wife likes. I have no experience with this manufacturer.. Depending on what floor plan, over all length and other factors you want is the key. As is the chassis, Ford, Chevy, etc is also an important factor. Like any other manufacturer there are good and bad reviews. We looked at Thor before deciding on our Phoenix Cruiser. A.) we wanted a Ford. B.) A floor plan of our liking. C.) a quality product form a reputable company, D.) the length we thought we could handle for drivability and livability (comfort space). Phoenix Cruiser had far many more positive reviews and virtually zero negative ones vs Thor and to many discontented owners. This is my opinion, for what it's worth. Check them out. They are fully customizable versus buying off the rack type of sale.

RE: Quartzsite show

As relatively new RVer's,(2 years and learning)and never been boon docking and really interested in a visit to the Q. Are there any sites with hook-ups? Not sure if we could handle dry camping, but would love the atmosphere and camaraderie. Sorry if this is a dumb question.

RE: What ever happened to RV Park Reviews?

The new Recreation.Gov site bothers me FAR more than the new Campground Reviews site, I absolutely hate it, I couldn't agree more. They have turned a really nice trip planning site into a guessing game. It is horrific!!! Please return it back to it's functional self.

RE: Full Hook-ups or no?

To us, campers of over 40 years recently turned RVers, the difference between fhu or not is basically whether you are a camper or an RVer. A destinationer or a tourer. We are new to the RV experience and thusly only require electric, water is a plus, as we try to do as much outside as we can. Many RVers leave their coach only to adjust their satellite dish. They need fhu. Just my observation.

RE: Rv beach sites

This summer will be hard to find a campsite if you're just planning now. Top Sail, Henderson Beach, Grayton Beach and the others along the coast are most likely booked by now. Don't mean to be a harbinger of bad news, but have been looking myself and found nothing that fits my schedule. Good luck!

RE: What ever happened to RV Park Reviews?

bukhrn: X2 Old site was like a comfy old pair of shoes. Guess you just gotta break in new shoes sometime! Though it might take a while and not get used/worn as often.

RE: Tire pressure monitors

We bought what I thought was the best rated TPMS on the market and it drove me crazy! First off it was a true pain in the ars to remove and add air and replace. And if it wasn't back on perfectly after 30 minutes or so it would give you a low pressure reading, which it wasn't! Took them all off and bought a Viair compressor and valve stem extensions. Happy as a clam!!

RE: Class C vs Class A - Length

If you’re a ‘camper’ who wants a mobile hotel room with big screen TV, you’ll want the A, if you’re a camper who wants a hard-sided tent with washroom, kitchen and beds and spend most of your time outside, you’ll be very happy with the C. X2

RE: Campgrounds in Texas, specifically near Austin

McKinney Falls State Park. X2 If you want near San Antonio. But if you're there in the spring check out the Willow City loop for the wild flowers. Then down to, of course Lukenbach!

RE: 2019

I'd have to say that our best of the year was our trip to the hill country in Texas. Links SP, Texas and the wild flowers in bloom There was no worst trip, but maybe the campsite at Hocking Hills SP. So crowded and tight. The park was nice and very interesting things to see. Oh well.

RE: Red Pocket Mobile

I have Red Pocket, but guess I'm the odd duck out. Don't use my cell phone much at all. Emergencies only. Bought the $60 a year for very limited everything, but at $5 a month am happy. I spend more time charging the phone than using it.

RE: roadside service providers

Join FMCA. Roadside assistance especially for class A's, $74 a year. You'll also get travel assist which will fly you and the DW home in case of a medical emergency and pay for a driver to bring your Class A home. The best value for the money out there. We had CoachNet and now are switching to FMCA, basically for the medical emergency plan as the DW & I both have medical issues and, well you never know. That's what insurance is for.
