    Navigation App.

    You can import POIs into the Garmin using their POI loader program which is available from the Garmin Website. I have loaded over 30,000 campgrounds from the POI Factory, Discovery Owners Forum, Ultimate Public Campgrounds Program, US Campgrounds and other sources. I still find campgrounds that were not listed in any database, but those can be easily added to a POI list that is in the proper format Excel spredsheet.

    RV Quality & Lemon Laws

    If I counted correctly there are 51 listings for Thor Products and 56 for Forest River Products so it would appear that the two larger manufacturers are about equal in producing poor products.

    The article states: No mention of taxes?

    Closing account

    I also believe this is true as I can think of a few banned members whose profiles are at least no longer visible.

    Beginner's Guide to RV's

    I had the same thought. I looked through the article a second time and found one reference to car seats and a number for how many people each type of trailer would typically sleep.

    Beginner's Guide to RV's

    The title of the article is "Beginner's Guide to RV Trailers How to choose the right recreational trailer for you". It seems to have done a fair job at that objective. If there was an article "Beginners Guide to Motorhomes How to choose the right Motorhome for you" should it be criticized if it did not include information about trailers? Should a guide to buying a home have to include information about renting an apartment or buying an RV instead? If the title was "Beginners Guide to Buying an RV", I would expect it to be all inclusive.

    Escapees survey of NPS improvements

    It seems to also means that a spouse or significant other can not complete their own survey unless they have a separate computer/device.

    Glass cabinets in RVs

    Almost every RV I have looked at had a mirror (glass) in the bathroom. Many have mirrors in the wardrobe doors or cabinet doors. I have not heard of problems with these.

    Pre Boot Camp Boondocking spots in Sedalia

    In the past, folks have complained about a low clearance barracade at the main entrance. While most are not really boondocking in the boondocks, these are a lot closer than a Walmart parking lot.

    Durango, CO to Lubbock, TX where to stop in-between?

    Not very familiar with that Forest. Checkout the Campgrounds and the MVUMs for dispersed camping opportunities.

    Durango, CO to Lubbock, TX where to stop in-between?

    What New Mexico State Parks were you planning to stay in on the way to Durango and what route were you contemplating from Durango to Lubbock. My mapping program shows a route that takes you close to Albuquerque through Santa Rosa and Fort Sumner. In Albuquerque there is Petroglyph National Monument, the Pueblo Cultural Center, the Turquoise Trail and the Sandia Crest Highway. Santa Rosa is another Route 66 town and has The Blue Hole and Santa Rosa Lake State Park which has a nice campground. Fort Sumner is where Billy the Kid is buried and there is a campground at Sumner Lake State Park. We enjoyed the buddy Holly Museum and Windmill Museum in Lubbock.

    NM Parks Pass

    Not true. Its called a Day-Use Pass not a vehicle pass. I have purchased several of them as a nonresident and currently have one that expires 10/31/2018. From the New Mexico State Park website. Annual Day-Use Permit (valid 12 months from month of purchase) New Mexico Resident or Non Resident (No Replacement) $40 (No Replacement) Notes: Annual Day-Use Permits may be purchased at any NM State Park office toll free at 1-888-667-2757 or online while making your camping reservations click here.

    Florida to Alaska

    Manufacturers may offer products that range from entry level weekend/vacation use to fulltime use. I suggest looking at the materials offered by the RV Consumer Group. When you find a brand with a model that interests you, search the internet for an owner's group/forum. Members of those groups/forums will be able to answer questions based on first hand knowledge and experience.

    Spring Creek campground

    That is not what it says. I take that to mean that there are underground vaults (tanks) at the host site. That will be pumped out periodically.
