RE: Route Guidance - Washington, DC to Lake Winnipesaukee

What DrewE suggests is probably a wonderful route for the most part, I must take exception to one leg. Between 6:30 -9:00 am and 3:00- 6:30 pm, you would be traveling faster on a unicycle towing a circus train, than towing your rig on I-290 through Worcester. Please, for the sake of your sanity, continue on I-90 to I-495. However, if you enjoy driving through Washington at rush hour, you’ll have a ball driving here.

RE: A terrible dinette table. Opinions on modification?

I hated the table that came with our teardrop camper, and like you, I was at a loss as to a workable solution. I had a sudden epiphany, I didn’t really need a “table “. Since there was only the two of us, we really didn’t need a big table. I purchased a folding aluminum table , about 2 1/2’square, that we could use in the trailer and outside the trailer. I purchased enough hardwood to cover the gap between the benches to solve the bed situation. The eight inch wide boards could stack under a bench or in a closet. Amazing how much larger the camper felt until I stood up. A 6’4” body in a trailer with about 5’6” headroom was an easily solved conundrum. I bought a motor home.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

We traveled three times cross country (9000 miles each trip) and numerous trips to Florida, Smoky Mountains, Maritime Provinces,and many,many local trips of only a few hundred miles with our Siamese cat Pogo. The first trip was in a B+ motor home while most of the others were in a truck camper. He always had access to food, water and his litter box. He spent the majority of his time sleeping. Occasionally I would see him sitting and looking out the back door or a side window. He never caused any damage nor was he ever any trouble. He would scream like mad when being carried to or from the camper,before and after trips, but never showed any interest in being outside. He was very mellow. His replacement, after eighteen years, is a Siamese named Tonto. We haven’t attempted traveling yet, due to Covid, but it should be interesting. Where Pogo was mellow,Tonto is anything but mellow. Pogo was a floor or lap cat. Tonto is a lap, off the wall, highest accessible point cat. He is very calm all night while we are sleeping but makes up for it the other sixteen hours. Perhaps his youth and my old age are not quite the ideal match, but I’m sure that we will both get older and more mellow together.

RE: Electric bikes.

We have a truck camper mounted on a 2016 F250 Supercab. We carry our two Blix Vika folding electric bikes behind our front seats along with our Honda generator. We are fortunate in that we can fit the bikes folded or unfolded along with the batteries, chargers and helmets and still have room for drinks and snacks. Everything that we formerly carried in that space now travels in an aluminum box mounted to our front hitch. We never leave anything more valuable than a picnic table cloth outside when we are away or sleeping. The electric bikes are a fabulous way to sightsee in state and National parks as well as beach communities as well as to run errands.

RE: Truck Campers and Boating?

I find that launching my Seaway 18 Sportsman CC a whole lot easier when I have my camper on the truck if I use my front hitch. There is no question as to where the boat is heading when it’s right in front of your face. I have a roller trailer, so when the back of the boat is in the water, I unhook it from the trailer and roll the truck until my tires hit the water, brake to stop and the boat pops right in the water. Backwards,no issues...frontwards, extreme anxiety. I always have the terror that I’m going to hit the gas instead of the brake. I hate the thought of starring in a YouTube video.

RE: Taping Window on Cab Over

I have never done that trip, though I wish I had been able. If your luck is even vaguely like my luck, you have just succeeded in jinxing yourself. If you cover the window, nothing will happen. If you don’t cover it,well, you can see where I’m going. I would rather worry about removing glue residue, than spend the rest of my life dope slapping myself for not covering it...or, worse yet, listening to my wife remind me that I should have covered it.

RE: Recommended Products For Restoring Fiberglass Shell

I’ve had fiberglass boats for nearly fifty years. After much trial and many errors, I’ve pretty much perfected my techniques. If I’m making pretty to sell, I strip it with wax remover and carefully apply several coats of floor wax in long horizontal passes being careful to have minimal overlapping. Do it correctly and carefully, and it looks like new and lasts several years. I’ve had multiple boats at the same time because they come out looking too good to sell. Surprisingly, I am still on the same wife...though she could do with a buffing. For my keeper boat (also known as my third, last boat), I use Collinite polishing compound and Colinite carnuba boat wax. I also use this wax on my F250 and my GTI. All three look like knew and draw lots of comments. Maybe I should try it on myself.
