  1. It was even better than that; at one end was an alley and at the other end was a bus stop so it was a pull-through parking spot just around the corner from our destination! Some days you win. Linda
  2. They also host an annual gathering of Winnebago owners where they demonstrate new products and ask for feedback on existing products. We went one year when we owned the View and it was worth making the trip to Iowa to do so. Linda Sand
  3. We took our Winnebago View 24H to all those places. We parked in downtown Chicago by finding 2 meters on the street and paying both of them. We parked in Miami by finding a spot in front of an unloading area and letting our tail end intrude a couple inches into that spot. We parked at museums by finding a spot in a parking lot where we could back up so our tail end hung over grass. If you decide that's the unit you want, don't let the length deter you. After all, we drove our View the entire length of Historic Route 66 from Chicago to Santa Monica stopping at all kinds of sights along the way. Linda Sand
  4. In the MPLS/St Paul metro area we had a heat index of 101° Thursday. That's the day this place decided to hold their cookout inside. They didn't even use the outdoor grill to cook the burgers and brats. Linda
  5. A Medicare wellness visit is not the same things as an annual physical. When I first started on Medicare my doctor said I could do one or the other as the wellness visit restricted what we could discuss. My doctor now does both in the same visit but they are billed as two different codes. Linda

    WE DID IT!

    Looks good from here. Linda
  7. Sorry, we never stayed that long in one spot so have no idea how you find them. Most of us who do stay that long are work camping for their spot so I'm not sure who here is going to be able to help you. I know there are parks with monthly rates in the Phoenix area, the Yuma area, and the Rockport, TX, area but we never stayed in any of them. I hope someone who has done so comes along to help you. Linda
  8. Would all the anti-gravity systems make it too heavy?
  9. Buy a new, white water hose and sanitize it and the fresh water tank.
  10. Apparently I either misinterpreted what I read or misremembered it. That's been known to happen when I'm tired and our apartment's fire alarm went off at 6:40 am today even though there was no fire. Sorry if I confused anyone. Maybe I should go to bed now. Linda
  11. The motto of this organization is "caring and sharing" so that's what we try to do here. I hope everything works out well for you. I think your family will love it once you get on the road. Linda
  12. That's pretty cool. We always used a dish pan instead of a litter box. Much less kicking out from the deeper pan and we never had trouble with a cat getting too close to the edge thus missing the pan. Takes up less floor space as well which is a good thing in an RV. Linda
  13. While that used to be true, Technomadia has found a better source of data and updated the app appropriately. The old data only promised to be correct within 1 mile. A mile can be too far off when looking for a boondocking spot. Linda
  14. But pay attention to vehicle registration fees as you make your decision. In Minnesota registering a Sprinter van is very expensive, since it is based on the value of the vehicle, but registering an RV is a flat $25. The clerk about fell through the floor when he realized I was registering a brand new 2012 Mercedes Sprinter van for $25. You do have to have the minimum number of amenities to register as an RV, though. Linda
  15. Technomadia's app Public Lands will help you locate ones you can then research further. Linda Sand
