RE: Used TC: does it have a lien?

I don't know of any states that require a plate, and have never known or seen a TC plate on a TC ... but was not exactly looking either. Been in nearly every state camping numerous times, and many states pretty often. Oregon does, bottom of page 2: https://www.oregon.gov/odot/DMV/docs/OtherVehicleTypes.pdf There, now you’ve heard of one. ;) p.s. Since this is on the west coast, it’s just called a ‘camper’ as opposed to those travel trailers some call campers. :p Thanks, just never known of one, not that I checked every state - yes, absolutely, Formerly California kid here - and been all over the country for many years in my Truck Camper, AKA camper on the west coast. :) :) And yup, been to Oregon too, got family in Forest Grove.

RE: Iphone vs separate hotspot box

We each have phone hotspot, one T-Mobile, one Verizon. Very seldom do we have no signal on either one. Occasionally, we might have one not, and one works. Last trip out cross-country, we only missed a signal when camping in very outlying areas, and then we both had no signal. I think phone hotspot and separate WIFI unit will get same signal if from same company. Before smart phones, we had separate unit, then one phone and one WIFI unit, and we saw almost no different between the two.

RE: Shearing the sheep

AND, remember too, interest eats most of the payment at the beginning, and depreciation eats the re-sale value pretty quickly on new vehicles. Down payment plus first year of mostly interest, then you have the auction value breaking about even on the repossession after what you paid out. The dealer gets paid, the finance company gets paid, and the buyer hold an empty hand when all is said and done. Not a good time to buy new, or even an over-priced used. Occasionally take a quick peek at Truck Campers now, and see the monster prices. Amazing, fifty grand for ten x eight feet of camper. YIKES!

RE: What to make of this......

Thinking this thru a bit - I'm betting the trainer was watching the dog to make sure it stayed on point a specific time-frame. Having said that and if true, there is NO reason trainer did not inform the person assisting. So, that still comes down to trainer not trained well. Yeah, I'd be gone in one heartbeat, or less.

RE: What to make of this......

Sounds like the dog trainer needed training more than the dog.

RE: Used TC: does it have a lien?

Hey burbman, are we talking just a title here, or an actual plate. Does anyone know ?? Title and Plate are two different documents. Plate is registration, Title is ownership. Plate would probably require renewal fees every year, but title is one time document, requires sales tax in those states that have it. I don't know of any states that require a plate, and have never known or seen a TC plate on a TC ... but was not exactly looking either. Been in nearly every state camping numerous times, and many states pretty often. Have heard a few times truck plate must be visible, and our Lance covers our truck plate. Have been camping in TC since 2002, and never been stopped or asked for registration for truck when plate is not visible. Have heard some campers move the truck plate to the TC so it's visible? I've never done it tho.

RE: Personal property ins.

Just while we're on this topic, any of you with expensive computer set-ups might ask your agent as well. And photography equipment. Some of that electronic gear gets quite expensive, and if it's excluded, you should be aware even if you choose not to 'rider it'...

RE: Upgrading to a better phone

Bought this one a few months ago - Like it a lot, you can also go to phone store and get a discount sometimes, and they will hook you up. We have two lines, and T-mobile unlimited text, phone, and hotspot for $69 if you are a senior. Other plans available - and no contract. https://www.amazon.com/gp/slredirect/picassoRedirect.html/ref=pa_sp_atf_aps_sr_pg1_1?ie=UTF8&adId=A03129653T7VQKWTL2REF&url=%2FSamsung-Galaxy-Version-Unlocked-Tempered%2Fdp%2FB08GP9V7M1%2Fref%3Dsr_1_1_sspa%3Fdchild%3D1%26keywords%3DSamsung%2BA20%26qid%3D1599686397%26sr%3D8-1-spons%26psc%3D1&qualifier=1599686396&id=7401714293430947&widgetName=sp_atf

RE: banks

Just make 'em little beds, and hook up an IV, and let their butts hang over the end ... harvest boneless chicken in two months.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

At first, it only means someone got sick from something, doesn't mean the test vaccine caused it. That answer comes later.

Wire gauge on Lance Camper

Lance has the proprietary Lance connector cable - anyone know the wire gauge inside that cable. I believe the charging wire is 8g, what about the others, turn signal, running, brake, etc. I'm asking inside the cable, not inside the camper :) Thx M44

RE: Is a Gas 3/4 Truck and Pop-up Camper Safe in Colorado?

We drive a Gas 6.0L 2015 Chevy 4x4, with Lance at about 2900 lbs plus gear. We've driven all over the Rockies several times over the years -- never have a problem. Drops a little speed climbing hills, but not enough to care about. Before that, a 6.0L Gas 2003 GMC 4x4, same camper, no issues with it over the years - and lots of trips in the Rockies. IF I ever buy another truck for camping, I'd still go with a gas engine again. Good shocks and HD tires make a difference, we run Bilstein's and BFG 285 'E' tires.

RE: Poor workmanship -- Entry Level VS Higher Price ????

Just because a company pays more does not necessarily mean the quality improves.

RE: Carbon Monoxide/Propane Alarm - Propane Leak?

I had one go bad after only 18 months, so failure is a possibility. They also can go off when the 12v supply is low. ^^^^ this one - check low battery first.

RE: Camping with no reservations

New England, no worries, we're heading to the central west states, UTAH, CO, Wy, Dakotas. Open air and lots of non-resort type CG. We like NF, NP, St Pk, COE, as first choice. Sometimes an off-beaten-track private ... which are usually quite different and interesting folks.

RE: Camping with no reservations

Depends on the area. Ny, nj and pa campgrounds seem full to me. Some also have restrictions, so every other site is open. I haven't seen that first hand yet. I would imagine if it is a more popular place it will be full. But i supose if your not picky you could find something in the area. Thanks We're heading for the middle western states - Texas, then north Utah, Co, Wy, Dakotas this time.

RE: Camping with no reservations

Good info guys ... we're pretty mobile, obviously with TC, and don't care about FHU unless we need to charge or dump and fill water. We can usually go about a week most times if pushed. We occasionally stay in a truck stop if we can't find a CG. We keep hearing everything is full, so want to ask those that are actually out there if that's true. We can fit nearly anywhere, even overflow for a night if its available. At first we planned Sept / October >>> until too cold, and not so much coastal areas this time as that seems the most full the most often. We might push it until spring, and hit Texas Feb /March >>> then up thru Utah and north toward N Dakota as it warms up. We'll miss CA and OR and WA this time. We know its usually difficult to get two weeks or so, but we are never looking for that. If we get two-three days at one spot, that's enough, unless we are targeting one specific park for longer. Then if it's available, we stay, if not, we move on. We are both retired, so timing is less critical than vacation folks. It's the journey, not the destination that we seek :) Thanks all.

Camping with no reservations

We've been camping for over fifty years. Never make reservations and have always found a site when we need it. We usually spend only a few days in each, visit the sights and move on ... state to state across the USA. We camp in the shoulder seasons, not summer, and for several months each trip depending on weather. We live in Florida at the moment, and our trips usually cross country, sometimes south, sometimes north. We are in a truck camper, and tow nothing. As a general statement, would those of you camping now or in the next couple months think we can continue this type camping, with no reservations and still find spots here and there as we have been in the past? We generally use NPS, State Parks, COE, but are not immune to use private for a night or two, but not resort type CGs, we are just two, all kids are adults and no longer accompany us. We know the virus has impacted camping, but are just looking for general "Fullness" of campgrounds, and the potential for one or two nights patched in as we travel.
