RE: New Truck More Payload

Welp how about this: Build a nice steel building on your MT property and store the truck and/or TC there and drive the RAV from home. Or store the RAV there. There will be room for all your excess camping, chainsaws and homesteading equipment as well. Another thought was to put in a well. It sounds like you have a great setup w property, truck, great TC, a wife willing to go along so I wouldn't dwell on the perceived limitations. Inch along step by step, no reason to get rash and step up to a 5500 right now. (It took me a couple years to understand that payload ratings are based on more than the physical ability of the truck so over time w a few mods your current truck may be all you need.)

RE: Generator Fuel Question

One point that hasn't been made is the fuel containers, LP vs gas. I would much rather deal w the LP containers than gas cans, recognizing the ease of obtaining gas vs LP.

RE: Jump Statt Battery Pack

Hi All, snip.... It seems to need to be able to sense some electrical power to enable the voltage outputs to energize. Is this the way they ALL work? Tim I bought a jumper pack (Schumacher DSR108) that contains a small Li battery but the way the unit functions is it sucks very little juice out of the dead batt to energize an ultra capacitor to do the starting. Is this the same type of jump starter you bought?

RE: Rear window reflective sun shade

Check out Boise Window Tint, for slightly different options. Bennet Akers 208 322 3312 [email protected] If Bennet can't do it himself he'll refer you to another shop that can. He is a true professional and quality businessman. Thanks for the heads up on this. Our window is tinted now, so not sure this is the avenue we want to take, but is good information to have for later should we change our minds. Lots of high tech stuff available now that has properties far beyond what we know as "tint."

RE: McCall, ID to Idaho Falls Avoiding Boise

Paulj: Thats how I remember Banks to Lowman, gravel a little more than Forest Service Road. I think it was about same time as you in 1991! I've lived here most of my life and i don't remember Banks to Lowman Hwy being gravel. Landmark Stanley rd maybe? My first trip on that stretch was is 1978, and it wasn't paved. The road base was the native decomposing granite. The blacktop pavement ended just east of Garden Valley and resumed at Lowman. It is much wider now than it was but still twisty and scenic.

RE: Camping World RV Sales

The job market has forced employers to hire a lot of (barely) warm bodies that aren't really up to the tasks at hand. Of course the employers had a part in this by continually under paying and under valuing productive employees.

RE: Camping World RV Sales

Reminds me of the story I read where a woman walked into a Mercedes Dealership wanting to buy a car and everyone ignored her except one new salesman. The woman come to find out was a multimillionaire even though she was not dressed for the part. Ended up buying 2 and paying cash. Lesson Learned Nice apocryphal story and it might have even happened one time. But it's not a good long term plan. I experienced nearly the same at an Audi dealership, except NO salesman ever even approached me. I don't buy cars 2 at a time, but I do pay cash.

RE: Camping World RV Sales

It's a complete lack of professionalism and RV sales are just one minor example of the state of the world today. People are making a living doing virtually nothing at their job besides breathing and looking at their phone.

RE: Yellowstone roads closed!

They did some very fast combat style engineering to get those roads opened asap. It is surprising how fast a temporary fix can be accomplished. It will take years for permanent repairs and improvements to be completed. Now is the time to do the improvements that have been needed for the last 40 years or more. Now is the time to rethink roads in river bottoms. These 500 year events will be relatively commonplace going forward.

RE: TT When Solo....OR Truck Camper?

Any boating in the picture? On my solo travels, probably not. I do have a boat, but for travels I will look more for stream, beach, lake and river fishing from shore/beach/wading. If a boat was wanted, I could always rent one if available. Prob stick w the TT then. If you wanted to fish remote places in your own boat I would opt for a pop-up TC but just a shell w a bed, solar and batts. Then add water, porta potty, 12v cooler, gas camp stove as necessary for each location. There is no point in having 2 full complete camping set ups.

RE: New Travel Trailer

HELP My daughter and S I Law recently retired and are looking at new TTs. They found a 2022 29 ft, 2 BR, 7,000 pounds, fully loaded. Forest River brand. He has a diesel short bed. half ton. The price is just over $45K. WOW !! They put a deposit on it and then called me. I have towed thousands of miles, 5th w, TT, Pop Up, you name it in the last 62 yrs. I think it's too much money for the TT, not enough truck to tow it or breaks to stop it. Tell me what you think and I will forward the comments to them. I know what you will say I think Help me out. Also, he has never towed anything other than her Toyota on a trailer from New York to Calf and little cargo trailers I would have them consider where and when they're going to camp before buying. IOW try pretend booking some campsites for a trip and see what's available. The idea that there's ton of places to camp at the most desirable times to go is wrong. The eyeopening may allow them to have a little more patience w the TT purchase or perhaps even reconsider the type of RV or even whether it's worth buying one to begin with.

RE: Fuel cost in your area

80 gallons diesel last fill up, $495.20 My last house on the east coast had a 1000 gallon heating oil tank!!! It wasn't uncommon to put 6-700 gallons in it during Dec, Jan, Feb..... OMG!

RE: Empty parks with no open sites.

A CG has a duty to hold a pre-paid reservation for some amount of time which is up for discussion. And it is different if it's prepaid. The issue of empty spots partly stems from the policy of allowing booking of sites that aren't available by booking days ahead of the desired period so days that aren't available to all now can be booked. has a 10 day waiting period after which reservations can be modified to release those nights, but some people don't and that leads to many unused sites.

RE: Yellowstone Procedure to enter park 6/22

They are opening the majority of the park faster than anyone predicted. I think the other part of the park will not be opened till next year. I got berated on another thread for suggesting that they will pull out the stops to get the crown jewel of the NP system back open fast. Of course, they were always talking about the south loop opening in a week or two as there was minimal impact. On the north loop, it was just a question of what they could open and when. I'm betting they have road & bridge projects going before the snow falls and by mid summer 2023, the main roads will be open. Some of the secondary and spur roads will likely stretch out longer. They used your post to express their negative "feelings" towards the fed gov, and in particular the NPS with no real knowledge of the situation.

RE: Moving from 5th Wheel to Sprinter based Class C

Have you considered a smaller 5th wheel or bumper pull and keeping your truck? I think this gets to the point of...why are you switching? If we know why, we can provide better feedback. Yes, correct. I could have blurted out my opinion, based on my use and my experiences and preferences, but I want to actually be helpful to the OP.
