    Many traveling South

    I live directly off I-75 (I-75 goes from Northern Michigan to Southern Florida). This weekend, I noticed A LOT 5th wheelers heading Southbound (many Michigan and Canadian license plates). Why would people be heading South with a camper for Christmas? I assume most of these people are retired...

    1 lb propane tank adapter for full size grill

    Has anyone used an adapter to use a 1 lb propane tank in an emergency on a full size grill? I just ordered one, but I'm wondering about how many minutes of grill time it allows from a 1 lb tank?

    Thoughts on tent camping and set-up time...

    I just camped last weekend with Boy Scouts. I used a tent that I just purchased in the summer for the week long scout summer camp. The troop has leader tents, but I prefer to sleep alone. The 20 year old LLBean dome tent that served my family well finally gave out. I just couldn't waterproof...

    I have a Reese receiver lock like this.... http://www.homedepot.com/p/Reese-Towpower-5-8-in-Stainless-Steel-Pro-Receiver-Lock-7030200/202255022 We used a receiver hitch reducer last fall for our bike rack.

    Brix campers

    The Aussies really seem innovative in their approach to designs. I love the slide out kitchen....wish folding trailers here had it (I know, we did 50 years ago...back when there was real innovation in designs.) http://www.brix.com.au/

    Electric Heat

    Just had a discussion with a cousin of mine. He is an Eagle Scout and a Scout Master, and enjoys Winter camping. He roughs it with the troop, but also has a TT for he and his wife. They camp all year. He told me that he just converted his TT from propane to electric heat. His view is why should...

    Coil SumoSprings installed

    We had an issue with rear sag when towing with our RAV4 Sport. I looked into the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs. I know many members here have the Firestone Coil-Rite Air Helper Springs, and have many years of trouble-free, positive experiences with them. But multiple owners on the RAV...

    Refilling tank

    I purchased a new tank and had it filled at a new place, which happens to be much closer. It is new and mostly deals with golf carts. When the guy came out to fill my tank, I noticed that there were no scales. He told me that they don't need to use scales with the newer OPD valves....he just...

    Coil SumoSprings

    I've been looking for something to help reduce rear end say while towing. I've read mixed reviews about the use of air bags inside the springs. I've also read mixed reviews about replacing the rear springs with the slightly stiffer springs from the 3 row RAV (Our TV is a 2009 RAV4 Sport). I...

    ADCO SFS AquaShed cover vs. ADCO DuPont Tyvek RV cover

    ADCO added a third type of cover for popups to their offerings in recent years.....one with the Tyvek top. I'm interested in the Tyvek version due to the white color not absorbing as much sunlight (keeping it from heating up too much). According to DuPont, Tyvek "repels the water and keeps...

    Kind of like...

    Most of us have seen the video of the VW Bug pulling a unique trailer. VW bug pulling a 5th wheel camper. Fun! Here is another one kind of like it, but on a much larger scale... ULTIMATE 5TH WHEEL CAMPER! And another built for mid-size cars. Camper catches air!
