  1. The Carlisle are great tires. I've switched to them on the last three rigs and never had a failure. You won't regret switching to them.
  2. Avoid the area. It is way past it's prime.
  3. It is usually the length of the site. A 30' fiver or pull trailer won't fit in a 25 'site. It doesn't matter what kind of rig it is.
  4. X2 on Peurto Penasco and Playa Bonita. We go there every year but you wont be alone. It's a zoo with a lot of partying and sites very close together. But you are right in the water.
  5. I have a long bed king cab and used to own a short bed. The long bed is nice when you have a lot to haul to the dump, for home remodeling supplies, etc but it's a pita to park in parking lots, most garages, even some cgs. I'd go back to a short bed in a second if I had the $$$. Same goes for 4wd. Now that I live in sunny AZ no need for it and it just jack's up the truck making it harder to get into. I am pushing 79 so that colors my needs and experience. .
  6. Even though AZ & CA are milder weather you will have a lot of 40s & 50s and maybe some 30s and some rain so you will need somewhere comfy to hang out. Just one more thing to consider.
  7. Thanks for the replies. I'm going to go with a small portable unit. The roof top system is going to be overkill and more work than I want to go to. For the few times I need it I hope it will work out. Thanks again for the suggestions.
  8. Thanks for the comments and ideas. Being I won't use it all that much I think I'll try a small mid priced solar. I wont have the noise or upkeep of a generator.
  9. Thanks. That's what I need to know.
  10. An alternative could be a small 100w solar charging system. We do our best to dry camp when it's sunny. Would you recommend solar or generator?
  11. We occasionally dry camp for three or four nights and use minimal electricity...a couple lights in the evening, water pump and once in a while, the furnace for a few minutes in the morning. I have a battery charger that has 2 and 10 amp output with 2 amp input. I would like to buy a small, lightweight generator just to run the battery charger. My idiot lights on the trailer go down approximately 1/4 or 1/3 in a day. How long would it take to charge my one Deep Cycle RV battery back to full power? Would a cheap, small generator do the trick for very occasional use? Thanks

    We, too, loved the 2x2x2 rule when we were on the road. Of course it's not a set, never break rule but thinking about it defined our goals in fulltiming... to take your time and realize the goal is the travel and not just the destination. We only reserved sites when we knew we were going to busy places that fill up months ahead of time.
  13. Have a safe journey and above all enjoy the trip. Fulltime is all about the travels and not just the destination.
  14. We live in a HOA where we can't keep the R V. We pay $40 a month for outside storage.
  15. We're 78 & 80, no longer fulltime but still leave for 3 months every summer and at least every other month all winter for several days to several weeks. We have many in our local RV club over 80 and still enjoying lifestyles similar to us. We have no plans in the near future to slow down.
