    HELP! Travel Trailers...which one

    I had a good experience with Holiday Hour RV in Cortland, Illinois (just east of DeKalb). They're a Jayco dealer.
  3. What do you think of Illinois rest areas? State considering fixing up some, maybe closing others

    safety corridors and school zones

    #2 is state specific. In Illinois, per an attorney general's ruling: "This paragraph limits vehicle speed to 20 miles per hour only during school days while the vehicle is passing a school zone or is traveling on a street on or across which children pass going to or from school, and then only when children are physically present on such street or are outside the school building in a school zone. The 20 mile speed limit is not in effect when the children are inside the school building even though school is in session."

    The new 2017 VNL

    What appears to be gone is the long mid-roof model, i. e. the old 730.
  6. Brand? Model number? Model year? Location?

    At Sea about which RV

    Sold - 2013 Nexus Phantom 28P

    I think that's a very attractive price for a very attractive unit. Wish I was in a position to take advantage.

    Traveling I 90 W through Chicago

    There's construction on I39 between MPs 96 & 116 (just south of I88 to Rockford). Depending on time of day and traffic, backups can be up to 2 miles.

    Interstate 39 Alert

    There's an electronic sign message that the northbound I39 ramp at the U.S. 20 junction just south of Rockford will be closed the week of May 2. This will require northbound I39 traffic to take a detour. I'm sure there will be a detour posted, but it's not likely to be pretty.

    Chicago West on I-80

    http://www.illinoistollway.com/tolls-and-i-pass/toll-information/rates-by-toll-plaza You'll only hit one toll plaza - max rate $4.50, depending on what you're driving and towing and the time of day. Plaza 43 on the above link.

    Towing with mid-size SUV?

    To repeat one piece of advice from above, to make sure it doesn't get overlooked: make sure you check the rating of your hitch. My V8 Expedition is rated to tow over 7,000 pounds, but my hitch is only rated for 4,000.
