I went from Florence to Tillamook last summer. Be sure to book weekend stays at Oregon Parks ASAP.johntreacy said:I think I'm going to focus on the Oregon coast. The Oregon State Parks look like they have a lot to offer for good value. http://oregonstateparks.org/index.cfm?do=visit.dsp_find.
When I bought a used T@B I asked around locally for recommendations for a very good tire shop and took my trailer to that shop for new tires and also to have bearings repacked and brakes checked. I think that there are probably a lot more really good tire shops around than there are really good RV service centers.GrandmasKid said:Near our home (just a few miles) is a Camping World service center. Our T@B dealer is around 25 miles away through some of the worst traffic in the world (north metro Atlanta, GA). My question is do any of you have your T@Bs serviced at Camping World? I need my brakes and wheel bearings serviced. I know this may be controversial and I don't want to offend anyone, but I really need to know if it would be wise to go to anyone other than dealers for service. My local trusted auto mechanic won't do the work. My Outback is just out of warranty with 14months and 16K miles on it. Thanks for any thoughts on the subject.
There is no way that I would want to crawl around under the trailer to get at the spare in an emergency. The first thing I did was move the spare to the tongue.Rangergirl said:I see a lot of modifications for mounting the spare tire and wonder why people don't just mount it where it's supposed to be. It does seem a little low, but has anyone done this and had real problems?
Mines still inside under a seat, but could use the room. I don't really want that weight on the tongue...hard enough to get the the thing unhitched sometimes with my weak, girly muscles.
