    Research phase pop up vs class c

    While there are trailers with bunkhouses, I don't think many are going to fit your towing capacity limits. As SWharton said, I'd look at popups and consider a tent for the older kids. Our Coleman/Fleetwood Utah popup has two king beds, a dinette bed, and a gaucho couch. We've slept 6 in it. The brochure claims you could sleep 9, with 3 on the king bunk ends (a little too cozy for us).
  2. We picked up some 27 gallon stackable, heavy-duty storage totes on sale this past weekend at Costco. We saw a smaller, stackable size available at our local Office Depot. https://www.officedepot.com/a/products/792989/Greenmade-Storage-Tote-27-Gallons-30/. Apparently Office Depot is matching, or almost matching, the cost at Costco. I looked at the Ziploc with the gasket. I may still use a couple of those. SnowGypsy, are you satisfied with the durability of the Ziploc? Thanks everyone.
  3. Thanks folks. We got our rig a couple of months ago. We've got some time before we are able to full-time, but I wanted to start thinking about storage bins. Lots of good advice here. I can take my time and hopefully catch a few sales.
  4. Thanks Rocksbride. I appreciate your insight. I'll be on the lookout for stackable, rugged bins. I like the tip to group things together to help determine the size needed.
  5. We're gearing up to full-time with hopes to be part of the 2020 class. What storage bins do you use in your basement storage areas? Do you use those with weatherproofing gaskets in the lids to cut down on humidity or smells? Do you use regular bins or some mix, depending upon what is stored? Thanks.

    Convection Oven Metal Oven Pan Replacement

    Thanks for the baking tips. The manual noted inferior baking results if you used the glass turn table in place of the metal one. It's good to know that I can use other metal pans.
  7. From another forum I learned that SC State Parks are doing a 12 days of Christmas sale, offering different specials on different days. Day 4 and Day 11 look like good deals. https://southcarolinaparks.com/deals/12-days-of-deals
  8. I look forward to this discount every year. We usually buy a dollar amount to cover a week of camping at any Virginia State Park. http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/state-parks/blog/give-the-gift-of-outside-and-save-25

    Convection Oven Metal Oven Pan Replacement

    Thanks for the tips. I think a spring trip to a Corelle/Corningware outlet store is in my future.😉
  10. We just bought a used coach with an Advantium microwave/convection oven. It is missing its metal oven pan. I would like to try baking in it. Should I try to find a replacement metal pan or can I use something else? My aunt suggested stoneware as a replacement. Has anyone done this? Thanks for your insights.
  11. My husband is retired Navy. We are curious as to what other retired military members did with their last uniforms, shadow box, and charge books when they hit the road full-time and sold their sticks and brick home. We do not intend to get a storage unit and had hoped not to burden relatives with care of our stuff. We were just wondering what others chose to do with those types of things.

    Clean Up That DoDo

    We've stayed at Pinchot. We too liked the pet-free loops for the same reasons. I would love to see that option offered at more places. Maryland State Parks offer pet-free loops on their reservation system. I don't know if it's in all of the state parks, but it's an option for Point Lookout State Park.

    Trailer w/o Slides

    I'm thinking that the insulation value in the Ice Castles must be pretty good.
