We have friends who full time in their LD. If I were to full time, the interior room in the boxy LD would be very appealing. They had the rear set up as a living room/den with bookcases, sofa, TV, etc. They slept in the cabover. The dinette was really nice with a larger kitchen than the BF which wou...

We travel with three Standard Poodles ranging in weight from 55 pounds to 90 pounds each. One likes the couch. One likes the rear side bed. Another sleeps on a cushion between the driver and passenger seats. We own a doggie seat belt but haven't used it in the coach, although we should use one on ea...

Bill & Barb, I think we were considered the most unlikely to succeed, so when we survived the trails it was a surprise :o . Sometimes it's nice to be underestimated, because the only way you can go is up! :lol: Great to spend time with you two at the rally. Thanks for the 2 Buck Chuck. I must ad...

Larry, you could add a Suzuki Grand Vitara to your list if you are looking for a small, light weight, fully functional SUV that is comfortable to drive. We tow a Chevy Tracker 4 x 4 and can play with the Jeeps on the mountain trails. Unfortunately Chevy discontinued their relationship with Suzuki (w...

John,

How do you keep your double sheet from slipping off the sofa? I've tried a variety of "fixes" but everything seems to slide or get bunched up. Do you use one sheet for both the seat and the back?

We travel with dogs, don't have dog hair issues, but like to keep it covered for dirty paws.

Hi Guy, I opted for the expensive Nissan Stainless Steel Cook and Carry System (4.7 quart). Amazon.com has new and used ones listed in their Home and Garden section. This unit requires only your propane stove to get the pot boiling for 10 minutes before you set the stainless steel bucket into the th...

We carry a mounted spare tire in the same place Bill and Charlotte do. Yes it takes up some space (but I manage to carry all the clothes, gear and food I did before - which means I carry WAY too much!) but we decided this was the prudent thing to have. A nail popped our right front tire in Flagstaff...

Steve, sorry you got stuck behind us slow pokes last year! We actually needed our skid plates - we took a couple of pretty good bumps, as did the jeep that "high centered" the second day. Glad they got him off the rock and glad we didn't have the same problem there! We thought about getting a Wrangl...

Hi Trish, As far as I know the trails are rated easy, moderate and difficult. Our rally will do moderate trails, but within those routes there can be difficult areas. Because Greg and I were newbies and had no idea what to expect, I'm sure we were more challenged than most last year. Our guide will ...

Trish, guess we should have started a new topic! Sorry to the rest of you who are looking to discuss grills. . .

Forgot to tell you about 4 buck Chuck. At Trader Joe's in California they market a $2.00 bottle of wine and call it "2 buck Chuck". They also sell a bottle for $4.00, hence the name.

These old mining trails are narrow, steep and winding. They have not been improved since mining days. Meeting another vehicle is a challenge because there is only room for one, so somebody has to find a way to pull over. There were portions of the road that had huge boulders we had to "climb", wash ...

Bill, we splurged on the "4 buck Chuck" when we were in California this spring. After all, you have to keep up appearances with a classy coach like a Born Free! Yes, we are coming back for more off-road abuse in Colorado. Greg was a little white-knuckled with the driving circumstances last year so I...

We use a small propane gas grill that we bought on sale at Camping World. The electric wouldn't work for us as well because we frequently camp in national parks and forests where there are no electrical hookups. We could start the generator to use an electric grill, but the hours of operation for ge...

Hi Mary Ann, How's my Sasha girl doing? Very excited for you two to do this trip! We have just started traveling for several weeks at a time with our three standards and plan a two month trip out west in April. Along with everything listed above, I too carry "human" meds that work for dogs. I am car...

I like the sound of the small tables that store, plus the twin beds. If our rig ever wears out that would be a great option for us. I'm always planning for the next move, but the reality is - we may never get this coach completely used up! That does not mean that we couldn't re-arrange the furniture...
