RE: Recommended Tow Set-Ups (Brands) for the Toad

It appears that Blue Ox and Roadmaster both offer base plates for our “Toad”.

RE: Recommended Tow Set-Ups (Brands) for the Toad

For a better explanation: We will be doing a bit of off-road use, with the occasional use as city/town ( which we avoid)....and have a Suzuki Samurai! Hence the light weight!!! We will rarely use a conventional RV park/campground....mostly National Parks/BLM/State Parks/boondocking, ect. So.....we’re looking for a good tow set-up for the Samurai. We will be towing ....4-down! We’ll be looking for a hitch capable of 5K plus pounds, in the event we get “old” and change our lifestyle! Thanks again.....and sorry for the confusion! :)

Recommended Tow Set-Ups (Brands) for the Toad

We’re finally getting a “Toad”, and would like opinions and suggestions. The “Toad” weight will be under 2500 pounds. We will be doing a lot of mountain towing! Thanks in advance for any and all help! :)

With a newer HD diesel pickup, it’s ready for anything that you’re likely to throw at it! memtb

RE: Who else is at home this weekend?

I had colon surgery Thursday, so we're spending a quiet weekend sitting here by our Adirondack cottage. Our daughters have been bringing meals, so my wife has the weekend off too. :) Wishing you a quick and complete recovery!

RE: Who else is at home this weekend?

Us! Didn’t really have plans. After spending about 9 hours in the yard, mostly physically demanding work.....Every muscle “south” of my ear lobs hurts, and a pretty good sunburn. I didn’t realize how thin my hair was getting on top....I now have a sunburn where I’ve never had a sunburn before!

RE: Snow: how deep is too deep for camping?

I guess I just have to be really, really patient: the LA Times reports today that the top of Mammoth Mountain (in the Eastern Sierra) has gotten 60 feet of snow (715 inches) so far this season and will stay open for skiing until sometime in August! Probably be getting fresh snow by then! :)

RE: Cleaning Question

If/when I get motivated enough to wax, and believe me it’s needed.....I’ll stand in the tractor bucket, while the wife positions the bucket. I’ll be sure that she understands that I “do not have” a life insurance policy!

RE: Camping or Glamping?

Yep! Some of those folks didn’t even have oxen or horses to pull their wagon.....they had hand pulled carts! Such as this! Those blessed with animal drawn wagons were “glamping”! https://www.wyohistory.org/encyclopedia/journey-martins-cove-mormon-handcart-tragedy-1856 Thanks for that link! I was aware of the Handcarters (saw markers along our route which yes, made us truly appreciate having an RV as we traveled difficult terrain) but not this particular bit of history. The strength of the human spirit blows my mind.... Your welcome! Very few of today’s population could even hope to survive what our early settlers endured! I’d like to think I could....but, I know better!

RE: One thing I'm not crazy about with new cars

The thing I hated with the newer cars, but eventually learned not to do......I kept getting my foot hung-up in the steering wheel, when trying to dim the headlights! :B

RE: Camping or Glamping?

Maybe "glamping" is just a matter of degrees-of-comfort? When I went from a tent to a popup, it was sooooo nice! Then from a popup to a Class C? *swoon* Many years ago, Ed and I were parked at a historic sight, where one could still see the ruts left behind from hundreds of covered wagons headed westward. Can you imagine what one of those pioneers would think about today's motorhomes??? Even the most basic camper would have blown their minds..... Yep!

RE: Camping or Glamping?

Now we’re onto something important! Was this a photo Safari, or did we get to enjoy the awesome smell of burned gunpowder? ;) Either way, I hope that you enjoyed your “glamping”! :B I have no issue with well regulated hunting but holy cow is it pricey, we have some friends who did and it was 5 figures for a wildebeast. We did photo safari. Really pretty reasonably priced once you get there. “Glamping” ,substantially raises the cost of Safari .....photo or firearm! A goodly potion of that money is used for game conservation and attempting to stop local poachers! If it weren’t for the millions of $ going into the African economy, there would be no game left. Especially the elephants and the rhino!

RE: whether you like him or not Marcus is standing for the flag

Much too late! There is no forgiveness from me! I see some things as unforgivable!

RE: Camping or Glamping?

Only time we've done anything that might be called "glamping" was in February when we did an African Safari. We did stay in tents most nights but those tents had: - Concrete/Tile floors - King Size Canopy Beds. - Full household size showers. - Flushing porcelain toilets. - Fine dining at the restaurant. - Maid service daily. Oh and Masai warriors to walk you back to your tent after dark because of the hyenas (and yes we found footprints within a couple feet of the entrance in the morning) Now we’re onto something important! Was this a photo Safari, or did we get to enjoy the awesome smell of burned gunpowder? ;) Either way, I hope that you enjoyed your “glamping”! :B

RE: Convection Microwave vs. Gas Oven

Having both is nice....couldn’t live without the gas oven! In our class c, we have the oven and a conventional microwave. When/if the microwave goes bad, it will be replaced with a, wait for it........microwave!

RE: Camping or Glamping?

I had never heard the word glamping before today and it won’t be part of my vocabulary in the future but glamping is actually what we do! We either travel with our fifth wheel RV or our motorhome. I like the luxuries of today compared to yesteryear’s camping on the hard ground. We love people...in small doses, we love the convenience of our own washer/dryer and we prefer boondocking but stay in RV parks when necessary. We’re considerate of any neighbors we meet along the way and are not rude or demeaning to them even if we do not agree with their political stand or moral fabric. I grew up in Wyoming and there is nothing better than sitting around a campfire, enjoying the evening skies with a good conversation going! Maybe that’s why boondocking appeals to us so much. As we’re in our early years of retirement, we’ll spend more time out there on the open roads and hopefully we’ll run into good people who share our same views. - Marianne PS: By the way, no matter where we’re at or who I’m talking to, I always say...”we’re camped at such and such campground or such and such RV park or camped near the southern edge of the lake or we’re camped right off of such and such county road...so guess I’m camping...no matter how many amenities we have! :)

RE: Camping or Glamping?

Thank You for your answers! But, with no apparent, absolute answers..... I guess that we’re simply RV’rs , without all the unnecessary descriptive adjectives! So we’re Recreational Vehiclers? That could open the door to an entirely new discussion! ;)

RE: Camping or Glamping?

We consider our 24 foot Class C motorhome as an insulated, weather-proof, heated, cooled, mobile tent that has two permanent queen beds, a refrigerator, a 3-burner stove top, an oven, a table, two sinks, a shower, a toilet, tanks for liquids, and lot of storage volume. As such, we consider each trip in our mobile tent as a potential mini-expedition in our poor-man's expedition vehicle. We prefer taking it out to nature-based areas as opposed to areas involving around human habitation ... however we do visit both types of places. Do we camp or glamp? I don't know. Pnichols......again we find ourselves traveling in a “parallel universe”!

RE: Camping or Glamping?

My wife had never seen the term “glamping” before today. The article, found in The Farmers Almanac, defined “glamping” as this: What Is Glamping? The word glamping is a mash-up of “glamorous” and “camping” and is the latest travel craze that provides guests with an unforgettable outdoor experience without having to give up creature comforts—possibly with fewer creatures. Think of it as a smoother version of “roughing it.” Glamping lets you spend time with family and friends while allowing you to reconnect with nature. One thing that is common.....there are no commonalities! As proven with some of the answers given....We are 180 degrees away from the views of some!
