RE: Redwood National Park question

We stayed at the KOA, Elk Country and Ancient Redwoods. KOA is failrly wooded with some giant stumps, Elk were present at Elk Country and Ancient Redwoods was surrounded by woods. We spent 11 days exploring the Redwoods in 2016. Probably our favorite forests were around Ancient Redwoods.

RE: Electric Vehicles? Towing? Hauling?

Before EV goes mainstream a charging solution needs to be in place for the tens of miliions of people that don't have driveways.

RE: Towing on Colorado hwy 149

Steep, curvy and slow from Lake City to the pass. I wouldn't tow it going the other direction, but some do. Beautiful area.

RE: Arizona winter stay campgrounds

There are no RV parks in Tempe or Scottsdale that I have ever heard of. Try Mesa.

RE: Hwy 145 Co

Road is severely damaged. Going to be a while before it opens.

RE: Need Help on how to get health insurance while traveling

Rice, Used to be covered in an emergency. Starting in 01/17 BCBS ACA HMO plans only cover when you are in the emergency room. Get admiited to the hospital upstairs and your coverage ends. That is what happened in AZ anyways, CT was probably the same. I was on ACA plans from 2014-2018. Started with great PPO plans and they went away in 2016. Prices tripled in those 5 years and I ended up going back to work just to get off the crazy train.

RE: Red Bluff to Ancient Redwoods RV park in Recrest

We loved staying there in 2016, but cell service was limited to standing in one spot by the sign that said stand here for cell service. Not joking. Maybe it has expanded by now. Very well kept camground.

RE: Best Route To Santa Fe NM from Michigan

We have taken both I70 and I40 as well. The last time we took (reverse order) 285 north from Santa Fe to Alamosa, CO to see the great sand dunes. 160 east to 10 and then north on 71 to I70. LaVeta pass is quite easy and the whole route from Santa Fe to Walsenburg is very scenic.

RE: Olympic National Park

We stayed at Elwha RV park and they can easily handle your rig.

RE: Need Help on how to get health insurance while traveling

People do it by being on Medicare, VA benefits or live in one of the very few states that still offer a PPO plan through the ACA. Or your income is so low that you qualify for Medicaid. Another option is having a full time job that you can do remotely that has full benefits.

RE: Hitch weight?

I think any of those trailers would be a fine match for your truck.

RE: Travel Trailer Buying/Financing Questions

Getting exactly what you want is more important than the month you purchase it. Eveyone wants the best deal and there is no magic formula for that. Shop till you drop, then negotiate the best deal and best financing you can and then enjoy your new trailer.

RE: Las Cruces NM to Camp Verde AZ

The drive from Camp Verde to Show Low is real nice. Once you make the climb at the beginning it is just a high country drive between 5-7K feet elevation. Haven't been on 180 though.

RE: Another "Can I Tow This" question.....

I would give it a try as well. You can always upgrade your truck later if you are not comfortable with the 1500. I would buy a hitch with integrated sway control either way.

RE: A different weight question

Sounds like you are trying to ask if the tongue weight should go against the trailer GVWR. The answer is yes.

RE: Route Thru the Big Horns

16 is not as steep and not as curvy as 14. Easiest route over the Bighorns.

RE: Best way to get paid for selling RV?

I went to the purchasers bank with him and watched the transaction as he took the money out of savings and cut me a cashiers check. Safest way IMO.

RE: New F-150 with 13,200 lb tow rating!

KC10Chief....Ford, as does Toyota, GM and RAM (I'm not sure about Nissan) all follow the SAE J2807 towing specification, so your payload numbers are not as bad as you think. Those numbers already include 300 lbs for the driver and passenger along with 70 lbs for extra hitch equipment. I tried to find an free actual copy of the spec, but failed. I did find the following info from this web page. "New calculations for trailer weight ratings: In addition to the performance standards, SAE J2807 also uses a specific set of assumptions to calculate maximum trailer weight ratings: For light-duty full-size pickups (GVWR < 8,500 lbs.), SAE J2807 assumes that the tow vehicle includes any options with higher than 33 percent penetration; It assumes there is both a driver and passenger in the vehicle, each weighing 150 pounds; It assumes that tow vehicles also include up to 70 pounds of aftermarket hitch equipment (where applicable);" What does TWR have to do with payload? Absolutely nothing.

RE: Would it be safe to pull a 35ft 5th wheel on UT-12?

Yes, it is safe and a beautiful drive.

RE: Hwy 14 --Cedar City Ut -Hwy 89

4000 feet up at an 8.5 percent grade = no fun IMO. Take hwy 20. I have driven the road in both directions, but would not tow it unless I absolutely had to.
