    Coleman Niagra slidout won't stay latched

    I have had problems with latching the left side. Most of the time the latch would end up on the wrong side of the metal piece that supposed to keep it secure so it looks like it locked only to start separating out as soon as we pull out. Only thing that seems to work for us is having either...

    KOA in Cherokee

    We spent our labor day weekend at KOA in Cherokee and I must admit it was nicer than I expected. We anticipated a pretty bare bones experience here as that was what we found at the other two KOA we have visited. To our surprise it was a very nice place to camp. It's bit more on the glamping...

    Do you ever feel like a 2nd class citizen in a PUP?

    I have to say I never felt like second class citizen until this weekend. My wife and I just manhandled our pup to get it out of our campsite because a fifth wheel rig gave us about two feet of space between our pup and himself. No way to get my tow vehicle in there. Our site was advertised as a...

    When is it too windy for the awning to be out?

    Mine doesn't not seem to handle much at all. So I go by the rule of anything more than a gentle breeze.

    Science News: campfires are healthy!

    What if you are paying $5.00 a bundle and the wood is wet. Your blood pressure will increase as you struggle to keep that smokey fire ablaze. [:(O] That was only my experience on half of my trips this year. I now firmly believe in Duralogs as you never know what you will get at the...

    Need to replace tires on 2000 Niagara

    Thanks for the comments and advice. I have another question. My current tire is a Maxxis radial ST185/80R13 class C. Reading up today I think it should be a class D but I'm not sure how I need to calculate the load. A class C from Maxxis says it has a max load of 1,480 pounds. Do I need to...

    Camping withdrawal

    Feeling the withdrawal today. Originally scheduled to go camping today with the family before I realized it was going to be cold December in the Carolinas. Trip was cancelled a few weeks ago. Even though it is pouring down rain right now, I kinda wish I was out there camping. [:!]

    Why do wheel bearings need to be repacked or changed so often?

    As a new popup owner. How much on average does repacking the bearings cost if I take in it to be serviced. And where do I go to get it done. Can any auto mechanic do it or do I need to go to a RV specific place.

    How Far North Do you Camp in Winter?

    We just got our reservations cancelled at a campground in North Carolina. The campground explained that the cold weather we had in the last two weeks has caused most local RV's to winterize so demand is way down. A little bummed as I was looking forward to that trip.
