RE: Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort and Marina

If anyone has ever been here brfore, can you please help with directions to the resort. It’s very easy. Take hwy 278 of I95 (exit 8 I think). After several miles, you’ll cross small bridge onto Pinckney Island and then larger bridge onto HHI. Within maybe quarter mile, you take left onto Jenkins Rd. Campground is only thing on this road and at the end. You stop right at office to check in and they let you run around in golf cart to pick site. The biggest issue is making the left onto Jenkins. Traffic coming toward you can be heavy and it can take a while for clear enough traffic to shoot across...especially on Sat afternoon when all timeshare folks are headed off island. Traffic on 278 can be very heavy going onto island on Sat also.

RE: RV GPS Units / GPS Apps that ACTUALLY WORK???

It must’ve known the 5’er wasn’t in tow...pretty darn smart of it . On serious note, I review my route on Allstays Pro website before heading out. It has properly ID several low bridges on our trips from GA to NY.

RE: RVing YouTube videos???

We like several...Drivin and Vibin, getaway couple, keep your day dream, less junk more journey, finding your someday, traveling Robert, long long honeymoon, technomadia, changing lanes, I’m not lost I’m rv’ing, life is a joy, and a few others I can’t recall channel name. If you start watching them, YouTube will recommend/suggest others. Between rv channels, boating channels, craft channels, and wood working channels we never watch tv except for weather and football.

RE: Best wax for lazy people?

So if you were lazy and dreading washing and waxing your 32' fiberglass siding TT, what would be the fastest most bestest way to get it looking real purdy? No way am I gonna old school Mr. Miyagi style the wax. Thanks:) Pay someone to wash and wax your rig while you watch with the beverage of your choice. It doesn't get any easier. ;) I was going to say whatever kind the local RV detail shop uses ;-) To keep this from being a non-response reply, I’ve used the Meguires spray marine quick wax and it does good...just doesn’t keep shiny as long as “real” wax.

RE: Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort and Marina

Their Facebook page reports no damage and reopening this Saturday. If you do Facebook, search for Hilton Head RV Resort and they should come up. We stay a week there every June and really enjoy it.

RE: Mama Gerties

We stayed there in Apr 2018 to visit Biltmore in our 24ft class C. We thought it was nice and very unique being on such a huge hill/mountain side. We were in lower sections which was OK since we broke camp each day to drive MH to Biltmore. Our site was very fact it really surprised me how level it was. The way the road is going uphill it is kind of mind deception but when we got MH into site parking area, it was dead level. Walking the dog around the camping loops was a chore, at least the uphill part.

RE: Purchasing a camp site in Georgia

Hilton Head Harbor RV and Marina is very close to Savannah and each site is privately owned. An owner can have the site rented out when not using or leave their RV setup. We don’t own there but spend a week there every summer. Added - link to Lot sales website

RE: Quality Class C 24’ for towing boat

We are very happy with our Winnebago Minnie Winnie 22M towing our 19ft bay boat. We towed with previous 32ft Gulfstream class C and it worked great, too. But I’ve come to like the shorter MH.

RE: Historic Triangle Virginia

We also did American Heritage. There is a 7 day ticket that allows entry to all 3 locations. We already had tickets but American Heritage had sign advertising discount tickets...check with them on pricing. We didn’t have that long there so did a 3 day Williamsburg ticket and 1 day to Yorktown battlefield and the museum. We didn’t get to Jamestown. We also did 2 day trip to Mt Vernon. If you have time, do it.

RE: Chaser and Chasee

We don’t but if it suits y’all then go for it. It seemed to work for Smokey and the Bandit. If wife follows you and you have communication with her, she could make lane changes easier for you by sliding over and allowing you room.

RE: How do you manage without a toad?

No toad here and we’ve done fine. We’ve taken our 24ft to several tourist locations including Biltmore House, Niagara Falls, Watkins Glenn SP, Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown battlefield and museum, and Mt Vernon. Most locations have bus parking and we just park there. We’ve found public day parking at a few beaches as well. We’ve really simplified our site setup because we do break camp often during a stay.

RE: When leaving for the day...

Where are y’all camping for someone to take your site? We don’t use a toad and have had several week long trips in last year where we take MH out everyday. We’ve had not issues. Trips included Ashville NC, Rochester NY, Williamsburg VA, Mt Vernon VA, and Cordele GA (visiting Jimmy Carter hometown).

RE: Williamsburg/Langley

We recently did a trip there. Spent 5 nights at American Heritage RV ( It was a very nice park. Colonial Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown make up a historical triangle and you can get 7 day ticket pack for them. We didn’t have that time, so we did a 3 day ticket to Williamsburg and took day to visit Yorktown. For us, 3 days in Williamsburg was just barely enough time. 1 day in Yorktown was sufficient, doing the battleground tour and museum. We then spent day and half at Mt Vernon which was fantastic. We did an extended preservation tour that was great. Not enough time, but wish we could’ve hit Monticello.

RE: Salesman trying to talk me out of a Class C

It’s all about compromises. I really wanted a small class A because the cab area becomes part of living space when setup. But, like poster above, we tow toad. So the short C met more or our needs.

RE: fresh water tank

Actually, it was likely correct info from the tech. Inside many water pumps is a check valve that prevents city water running backwards through the pump and into FW tank. If valve is bad, it doesn’t mean pump won’t pump water.

RE: Travel from Atlanta to South Bend- during football season

I would also add that tailgating at football games from motorhome really steps up enjoyment level of attending games. It could also give opportunity for close away games.
