RE: RV Manners Matter

Picked up the new TC and first night camped in Bighorn NF. Of course the nearby camper ran their loud generator all night after it ran all day......AC wasn't close to being necessary. Just at dark, 9:30 or so, the campground came alive w trucks and a SxS(same campers w genny) creeping around and idling for extended times till well after 11pm. Are folks so fixated on motors that they just can't stand quiet, much less silence? Or is it more "look at me w my toys!"

RE: Travelling is not getting easier

Yeah I'll skip Baja for another year or 2. Much as I love it, there are enough places to go in the US w/out tempting fate.

RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

Well we enjoyed ourselves quite a bit. Spent 1 night in a USFS campground in Big Horn NF in WY. And then camped at Hell's Half Acre just east of Craters of the Moon the 2nd night. The truck and camper were great, we didn't want for anything and looking forward to the next trip.

RE: Can't overcome the fear of buying a Truck and TC.......

Update: 7/21/22 Well of course this week I find out I'm getting old and a new, but not unexpected health issue pops up. So I'm even more glad I jumped on a TC given a 2nd chance, even though it wasn't my first choice. I've improved the spring pack and added better shocks to prepare the Tundra, and the tires are rated for the load. It actually rides better, even empty, than it had. Tomorrow we shoot over to Bozeman to pick up the camper. We are prepared for a couple nights of camping in Bighorn NF in WY. We're trying to gain some altitude to facilitate being cool at night and stay away from YNP. Hopefully Canada will open, kids will go back to school so adults can't work from anywhere and we get back to some sense of normalcy. I stay local for archery elk in September, but after that we'll look to take longer trips. Thanks for all the thought and effort to respond.

Forthcoming Closures In E Washington as of 7/23/21

Beginning Friday, July 23, DNR is closing all recreational and public access to DNR-managed lands in eastern Washington due to the extreme fire danger and ongoing drought east of the Cascades. This closure will apply to DNR-managed state lands, conservation areas, community forests and any associated roads, trails, campgrounds, recreational sites or recreational facilities. DNR staff will continually monitor conditions, and a reopening date for recreation access will be determined once these factors improve. DNR has been working closing with all the affected partner agencies who agree that the fire risk is too great not to move forward with the closure. To get updates on recreation openings and closures, visit

Great TR. Thanks for posting.

RE: Question: too much camper - too little truck

The truck is rated for a 4400# payload. Considering I removed a 100# tailgate that gives me a 4500# payload. The camper is supposed to be about 3400# with a full fresh water tank. So I'm guessing, fully loaded we're close to the limit, maybe a little over when the gray and black tanks are full. Your description in the first post suggests that the actual weight is not anywhere close to the actual payload.

RE: Highway speeds - Keep your distance!

Another caution is remembering motorcycles can stop extremely quickly so giving them extra space is warranted.

RE: Coffee Survey

It's a survey, people express opinions in surveys, others can use the results of a survey any way they wish whether that is to gather information regarding the topic or make presumptions about the folks that participate in surveys. In my case I make a sincere effort to enjoy coffee, one of the best parts of the day; some may think my effort and dollars expended is ridiculous others may think I'm still missing out. To each their own, it's just a survey.

RE: 2022 F350 order options for TC

Everything you want and nothing you don't = priceless! What few trucks available today on lots are either work trucks or totally geeked out $80,000++. No way do I want or need a sunroof, or gooseneck prep among others. And it's MSRP or more to buy those.

RE: 2022 F350 order options for TC

The heated steering wheel and the rain sensing wipers are a nice combo. WRT rain sensing wipers it's not only the amount of rain that's falling it's driving at varying speeds necessitating constant adjustments of wiper speeds that is avoided w the rain sensing feature.

RE: Coffee Survey

I drink single origin coffee, black, mail ordered from Batdorf and Bronson, way back I used Peet's but they went big time. It's roasted to order and shipped the day it's roasted. I grind daily in a burr grinder and brew it in a drip pot that is designed for the optimum temp, but a French press, pour over, and others prob makes a better cup but I can't be bothered. I haven't found a single origin coffee(granted I'm using a high quality supplier) that I don't like, but the best all time are from Kenya. I'll drink central and south american, african, and south east asian origins as well. I haven't had the one that's picked out of elephant dung and don't plan on it either. Kona is just fair and Jamaican Blue Mtn is over rated and over priced, but drinkable. IMHO Keurig is the worst (well except for the motel room coffee), Nespresso is not far behind and I don't like over roasted and over extracted coffees like Starbucks and french roast. OTOH I'm happy w cowboy coffee or percolator out camping. I use individual serving freeze dried at the ski lodge cause there is no way I'm paying $4 for a cup of coffee while warming up. (The cup, micro, and shooters of cream are all free!!!) Roasting my own sounds intriguing but at the end of the day what I'm doing is fine for me. For the rare non-coffee drinker among us Batdorf has individual high quality coffee bags that you would be proud to serve your coffee drinking guests.

RE: Benchmark atlases or ???? Hiking trails on something else?

Gaia looks good. I use On X for hunting because it has property ownership, but it's $100/yr for more than 1 state.

RE: Can morbidly obese person use a travel trailer?

My buddy lived in one for years. I think he made use of the RV parks restrooms if I'm not mistaken. He was so proud of had the "northwoods package."

RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

^^^ Deck looks good but the steps look scary. Imagine coming down the steps in the dark with a little wet snow on them!!! Why a 5500/550 vs a 4500/450?

RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

Wheels and tires are another difference. The deck height of a flat bed is of concern w entry and exit to the TC.
