  1. You could stay at the Winstar RV park just before the Texas border. Safe and secure.
  2. Park appears to be closed. http://www.campgroundreviews.com/regions/texas/gainesville/gainesville-factory-outlet-mall-closed-6204
  3. Bought my B&W Companion 20K hitch from Discount Hitch in Arlington, TX today. Fair price, install was good, and nice folks. They know what they are doing. Total confidence in my purchase. Thanks for the feedback.
  4. I’m in the Dallas area and need to buy a fifth wheel hitch and have it installed on my 2017 F250 Super Duty. Does anyone have a suggestion of a reasonable and reliable dealer or shop to get this done. Google has not been the finest approach thus far. Couple of places quoted me MSRP for the hitch and six hours of labor. Think that is a little high. This would be a standard, rail mounted hitch. Per Lippert, I’m not looking for a adapter type hitch.
  5. Corelle, heavy duty paper plates, and china can survive in a cabinet just stacked. But, most important, is real glass for bourbon. A 10 oz rambler can work if the park event is too long and it's too far to go back to the site for refills.
  6. I very recently purchased a Jayco 28.5RSTS fifth wheel. Now, I really need a truck. I've settled on a Ford F250 but do I need a long or short bed to tow and park it? Let me add that all I have ever towed is a boat. No fifth wheel towing experience at all. Getting older and may need to park the truck in a parking garage occasionally. Any thoughts appreciated.
  7. I notice the compressor has a drain tube. Do you use the drain? If so, where do you have it draining?
  8. I use a Garmin 770 LMT-S. It's their RV model. I frequently use my cell phone for navigation around town but not for the RV.
  9. All excellent advice. My only added suggestion would be to sit in the RV you are thinking of buying for more than five minutes. Sit in it and walk around inside for at least 30-45 minutes imaging doing the things you would normally be doing in your home. Take you time to be sure it fits. Then, do the same outside looking at the storage capacity and how you access it when at an RV park or pulled over in a rest stop. See if you like the access. Don't rush the process.
  10. If you travel to the Boulder Hwy by Sam's Town, there are several RV parks. I stayed at the Sam's Town KOA for a little over six months. Plenty of room for a rig like yours. Safe and secure in my opinion. Easy access to the Strip if interested. Straight shot down Flamingo. Of course, the Clark County Shooting Range is closer the Road Kill BBQ (a triple D restaurant.
  11. When I stayed at Rainbow's End, I walked a lot and could see which mobile repair service was "most popular". Occassionally, I would go visit with the RV owner after the technician left to see if the owner was pleased with their work. "Most popular" and visit with the rv owner might be an option.
  12. The biggest issue I've found with my Escapees address is many software programs (online or at a business) does not accommodate the #12345. They can only put in the 12345 as an apartment number. I've been know to just had them my drivers license that shows $12345 and tell them to figure it out.
  13. Congratulations. Remember there are lots of roses to smell along the way. Take time to enjoy.
  14. Kirk, really enjoy this post. Thanks.
