RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

Sounds like a typical first trip, you have a great attitude and think you will adapt fine to the camping life style.

RE: cedar creek fifth wheels.good for full-time living?

They are good, we know quite a few folks that full time in them, if you can handle the higher price and weights look at the River Stone line, built the same way and are actually a spin off from Cedar Creek

RE: traction tracks

I saw a video of a guy using them or at least similar at a boondocking spot in soft dirt, worked good on his Volvo tractor pulling a Spacecraft 5th wheel

RE: Likely to regret

Go ahead and use your truck, there are a lot of us out here with class 8 trucks, we camp in mostly commercial or state campgrounds and with proper planning have not had a issue

RE: Jayco Dealer Recommendation

Friends bought a Jayco years ago from Whitehorse and were very pleased with the deal and any service they needed; we bought our previous Cedar Creek from Stoltzfus in Adamstown Pa and were also happy with the sale and service. Crossroads has good prices not sure about their service.

RE: rt 64 in new mexico

If your destination is Taos, allow me to recommend a different route: Head south on I25 to Walsenburg. Then turn west on Hwy 160. Go over LaVeta pass (a mild one with a wide road) to Fort Garland, CO, where you turn south on CO 159 / NM 522 into Taos. Easy peasy driving. :) Lynn This is the best route, (forgot about it) and the one we use the most, watch for the antelope along this route

RE: rt 64 in new mexico

We have driven from I-25 thru Raton, Cimerron and Santa Fe, the first 2 there are some real curvy sections and a good pass to come over after Angle Fire. Coming up from Santa Fe is a easier drive but longer, just take your time and you'll be fine, we do it with a 43' 5th wheel towed by a Kenworth tractor

RE: Just looking for honest info

For what it's worth River Stone by Forest River has a dedicated toy hauler getting ready to hit the production line, not one that can carry a single bike. I hope to be able to see it sometime in the next 2 weeks as I am in the area, yes, they also use a Lippert frame, but they are built to their specs just not sure how much that helps, we have been very pleased with our River Stone 5th wheel so far (6 years) just letting you know there might be something else to look at and compare. Good luck on your decision.

RE: LCI Service Center, Goshen, Indiana

There are a couple of service centers I do believe, we used one for spring repair many years ago with great service.

RE: Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

Not sure it makes it any easier backing up still took him multiple times, to me I would rather control the trailer myself, now I was a tractor trailer driver and also a yard jockey for 2 major companies, so my backing skills are pretty good, and this is just my opinion.

RE: We all use different ways.

Very well said and no matter how someone camps as long as THEY enjoy that's all that matters.

RE: Taos in late April and May?

My son always warned us that at night that spot is not the greatest, glad you moved on, I know there are always a lot of campers at the Walmart lot at night, and your right the view at the Gorge is wonderful, we always look for the sheep climbing the rocks.

RE: Taos in late April and May?

Greetings from Taos! Beautiful weather with cool nights and bright sunshine during the day, so am so glad that i managed with your encouragement to overcome my doubts and come - though with the fires on the other side of the horizon just now I also feel lucky my home has wheels, so I can just turn on the key and drive if the fires come closer. Much tougher for those who don’t have this option.8 Very true about the fires, currently the largest active fire with a lot of folks already evacuated. Where did you end up getting a camping spot? We will be at the Taos Monte Belle campground in September on the way out to the Gorge

RE: Taos in late April and May?

Looking at the 7-day forecast right now for Taos there are a couple of nights that will be below freezing but days warm up nicely. I think you will be fine, most ski areas just closed in New Mexico, Colorado on the other hand could still be cooler, I would go and enjoy your trip.

RE: Pittsburgh to landcaster pa without using the toll road

I think getting up to 80 then drop down 322 thru State College area towards Harrisburg then depending where in Lancaster you're going which route from there; I know the tolls on the Turnpike are outrageous and not really sure how much longer this would be. DO NOT TAKE 30 especially after Breezewood.

RE: Tankless Hot Water Heater (Gas)

Our unit came with a tankless (Girard2) then while at a rally the manufacture switched it out to a Truma. Between the 2 I would recommend the Truma but from what I hear they require only that a Truma dealer install their unit.

RE: Locking fuel tank tops

My dad always said NOT to use the locking gas cap as they would puncture the fuel tank if they wanted it bad enough, just his opinin.
