Uncrowded Colorado campgrounds

Where in Colorado (or perhaps nearby) can we camp that is unlikely to be crowded?

RE: Do you drink.......

the water from you FW tank? I've read where some people don't and i don't understand why not. If you have sanitized your system what is there to be afraid of??No we don't. We want to avoid chlorine and fluoride, which is bad for your thyroid.

RE: Sway bars

10 or 12’ camper with 2 slides is going to be pretty heavy for a 2001 3500 dually.Agreed. We have a 2001 3500 Dodge dually and it is overloaded with a 2500 lb (dry) Northern Lite 10-2 CD.

RE: Driving With a Pop Up vs Hardside??

For ten years we had a Phoenix popup, 1000 lbs dry, on a std cab, longbed Tundra. The combination drove like a dream. You had to look in the mirror to be sure the camper was still there. On occasion, we drove in 60 mph winds, the only problem being our fear that something might blow off. Other than a vent cover, nothing did. Now we have a Northern Lite 10-2, 2500 lbs dry, on a longbed Dodge diesel dually. Highway restrictions have kept us parked in a Walmart lot during high winds. We are glad to have a dually, and we beefed up the Dodge front end to provide the stability we wanted. It drives fine, but doesn’t compare with the Phoenix and Tundra, especially on unpaved roads. So why did we switch? Three reasons: (1) We wanted a bathroom, (2) we wanted a fridge with a freezer, and (3) getting on toward ages 70 and 80, we no longer relished raising the popup by muscle power. We could have switched to a heavier (and more costly) popup. But that would have required that we upgrade our truck too. Instead we decided to go all the way to a hardtop and a dually/diesel truck. The OP wondered about air conditioning, a window unit or a rooftop: The window unit in our Phoenix worked better for us than the rooftop on our NL because it was in our bedroom, which is where we want most of the cool air. So which is better? The Dodge and NL that we have now suits us fine. We especially like having a readily available bathroom and stopping for lunch without popping a top – and not having to get outside in foul weather to drop and secure the top. On the other hand, when we were younger, the Phoenix and Tundra suited us fine. Surprisingly, we paid only about a 3 mpg penalty when we switched to the Dodge, but it’s a diesel. And we don’t drive as fast as we used to. A final word: before buying our present rig, we rented a NL on a new Ford SRW. Consequently, we decided to get a different model NL than what we thought we wanted. And driving the Ford SRW convinced us to get a dually.

RE: RV door window glass in Denver

It seems like there are many options on Amazon if you can do the install. like this https://www.amazon.com/Lippert-Components-363370-Black-Window/dp/B00S2IED6O/ref=sr_1_22?keywords=RV+Entrance+Door+Window+Glass&qid=1582584622&s=automotive&sr=1-22This link looked to me like a frame without glass.

RE: RV door window glass in Denver

Have measurements? I have door window from Lance. Chances are it is the same size.I don't have the glass size. But the frame opening is 12 x 21.

RV door window glass in Denver

Do you know of a mobile glass service in Denver that will replace the glass in my entry door? I keep striking out on my Google searches -- plenty of windshield replacement services and window frame replacement but no window glass replacement.

RE: RV Superbag

Hi all, Is anybody using an RV Superbag? If so, how do you like it? Is it worth it or skip it? Thanks, JeffI looked at the Superbag website. It looks fine--if you want to spend that kind of money. We've accomplished about the same thing for a fraction of the price, with conventional sheets, a blanket, a summer sleeping bag, and a winter sleeping bag. We use the sleeping bags unzipped and spread across the bed. We bought two bags at Walmart for about $16 each. The blanket was about the same price.

RE: What's with non-showing replies?

By now topic about used campers shows 41 replies, meaning 2 replies should show on page 5. Yet page 5 shows blank. Have noticed that few times before.My Used Campers thread shows 43 replies. No 43 is on page 3. I don't understand why "2 replies should show on page 5."

RE: Truck Camper with Built in Genset?

Do they make a truck camper with a gen set? maybe one that runs on propane and enough power to run the AC?Our Northern Lite 10-2 CD has a built in Onan generator that is fueled by propane and can power our air conditioner. A Honda portable would probably be cheaper to buy and quieter. But our camper, when we bought it used, had the Onan. We are spoiled by the convenience, especially the pushbutton start, and would not want to trade for a portable.

RE: Tripple slide weight

We are looking seriously at a tripple slide and wondering about the weight. The campers are weighing in at 4000lbs and wondering how others have done with that load. We have 2001 dodge 3500 dually. Wondering about the swaying back and forth also.We have a 2002 Dodge 3500 dually diesel. Northern Lite lists our Ten-2000 CD at 2360 lbs. With it loaded on our Dodge, the GVW exceeds the allowable.

RE: Moisture under mattress solutions please

We have not had a problem with moisture under the mattress, I think because we do not heat the cabover. In fact, we have drapes to keep the heat out of the cabover. We sleep best when the cabover is cool and we can pile on the covers.Plus 1...I would guess your TC is better insulated than mine. I try to stop for the year or move South when the temps start dipping below freezing. If I turn the heat off at night, I wake to a TC temp of about 10-15 degrees warmer than outdoors; i.e., about 45 degrees. That is a bit too cold for comfort as far as I am concerned.We don't turn the heat off at night. We heat the bathroom area to somewhere between 57 and 60 degrees but like to keep the cabover around 50 degrees or a little less.

RE: Members welcoming fellow members

New to the forum and new to truck campers. I feel like I'm a long way away from most members locations, but if anyone is ever in south Mississippi and needs a spot I've got 20 acres with water and sewage hookup. We are in a small town but we live about an hour drive north of New Orleans LA off I-59. That's about the closest tourist attraction to us.Recently, we drove through Mississippi on US84. Were we anywhere near your place?

RE: Mopeka Products

We monitor two 20# tanks. When they're working, they're great. But when we take out a tank to refill it, getting the monitor to work after putting the tank back is sometimes fussy. All things considered, we'd get them again.

RE: 1 ton SRW debate

I realize this is not the question your raised: But I would not want to carry an Eagle Cap 850 on an SRW when you could choose the stability of a dually.
