    I have really tried to ignore this post, but I can't. This is a blatent threat to kill people of a differing political opinion. This is the type of rhetoric that just caused a national shockwave. And it has been liked. I know Steve has really tried to keep this site politics-free and I...

    Pets, Kids & Camping

    My dogs have always loved just going for a drive. So when I went to Death Valley last year, they rode to all the sights with me and waited in the car while I spent time taking photos, did some shopping, etc. I'd let them out at spots they were allowed as we went. Honestly, they were just...

    Federal Compliance Sticker

    The RVIA sticker is different. It simply means the manufacturer is a member of the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association. It has no legal importance. The sticker the OP needs identifies the GVWR, axle weights, etc. It is placed on/in the trailer to verify it meets federal safety...

    Pets, Kids & Camping

    At those ages, the kids are young enough to learn new outdoor things in order to include the dog. Heck, I remember being at the younger end of those ages and watching my older sibling hang on a log and float down the small river. When the log reached a certain point, our dog would jump in...

    Federal Compliance Sticker

    It is usually on the frame - inside by the hitch. On my old Shasta, they actually put it inside one of the cupboards in the trailer.

    Federal Compliance Sticker

    It's been around for years. Trailers need to meet safety requirements in order to be legally driven on federal highways. Just like vehicles do.

    You are personalizing my comments. I didn't say that people who choose to carry are Clint Eastwood types. I said that there are those who carry who are Clint Eastwood types and they are a danger to the rest of us. And no, I am not overstating. I stand by my numbers.

    Federal Compliance Sticker

    For trailers, there should be a sticker that looks something like this: It simply verifies that the trailer meets all federal road safety requirements. It is not about emissions.

    This is so much a myth. Irresponsible gun owners are not getting their guns illegally. They obtain their guns just like the responsible gun owners - legally. As for California not counting crimes under $950 as a crime, that is untrue. The threshhold for grand theft was raised from $400 to...

    Alleviate wife's concerns

    It's not about stereotyping. I know many responsible gun owners. But not all gun owners are responsible. For every responsible gun owner I know, I know another one who is not responsible. And yes, I know many Clint Eastwood types who think a gun makes them invincible. That doesn't mean I...

    More than 1 dog

    I never had that problem with the dogs. They were just a s content to sit in the cab of the motorhome for a day then go back in the house as they were to go camping.

    More than 1 dog

    I had Moose-dog and Bat-dog for years. Both preferred to go inside on the cushioned bed/couch as it got dark. Bat-dog would go so far as to sit at the door to the camper and glare at my companion while we sat out by acampfire - Bat-dog knew it was the companion keeping me out in the cold and...

    Anyone use a door alarm?

    I'm just gonna say this for anyone thinking of getting a dog for protection. DO NOT DO IT. Get a dog for companionship. A dog left outside to "protect" will be a problem dog. I dog that is a part of the family will provide all the protection you need (unless you have a golden ;) ). If you...

    I wouldn't be surprised to see 12 grizzlies in one day at Yellowstone on the way to "camp". It is all in where the camp is located. There are camps pretty deep out there.

    Campground type ettiquittes

    In the past, the only time I stayed on a site with hookups were at clipper rallies. The club members were lost without hookups. Even then I only hooked to electric during my stay. I will say on my trip to Death Valley, I spent the first fight in Bakersfield at a private RV Park. All sites...

    "Breaking Bad" RV suggestions

    The one in Breaking Bad was a 1986 Fleetwood Bounder. Do an internet search and you should find some websites. The main concern will be leaks. The siding on those is notorious for leaks. For the engine and chassis, do a VIN search for details. Appliances are pretty simple and you should be...

    Glacier NP status?

    All the COE and BOR campgrounds around here are closed until further notice. I think they would rather open last minute and have folks pay then, than open now and potentially have to do mass refunds.

    Hybrid TV??

    Here is how you put the numbers together. Tow Capacity (TC) - this is how much your vehicle can pull behind it. It includes to weight of the trailer and everything in or on it. Most folks prefer to have some leeway (usually no more than 80% of the TC) with this if they will be towing in...

    Tornado Activity

    He has 7 siblings - I feel a bit sorry for their adopters: thinking they were getting border collies and getting flying monkeys instead.
