  1. gypsydan, We stayed at the Rock Springs CG for two nights, off season, about two years ago. We did park in the "corral like" parking area that was mentioned. It was an odd setup but we managed with a bit of a struggle. I would bring longer water hoses, electrical extensions and dump hoses in the event you were assigned a spot in that section. You will need them. As Kirk mentioned and as you see from the photos, the fairgrounds are HUGE with multiple loops/campgrounds. I cannot comment on the boondocking area. Connie
  2. Can anyone recommend an independent repair shop in the Tucson/Phoenix/Mesa area for our Mercedes Benz Sprinter 3500? I'm looking for a personal recommendation not just a Google search We own a 2016 Leisure Travel Van, Serenity model, on a MB 3500 Sprinter chassis. We're looking to have a sway bar and new shocks installed. One recommendation was GroupOne Werks in Tucson but they do not do that kind of install. Thanks, Art
  3. FYI...Gilbert Ray Campground outside of Tucson now accepts reservations. The reservation system was implemented in January 2020 except for Loop H which is still first-come first-served until January 1, 2021. I just discovered this info when considering a short trip there. https://webcms.pima.gov/cms/One.aspx?portalId=169&pageId=517703
  4. Hi, I own a 2016 Serenity (Class B motorhome) manufactured by Leisure Travel Vans. The coach is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2WD 3500 chassis with rear duallys and I have an issue with stability. From what I have read, this is a common problem with this MH. The MH sways in high winds or passing trucks. On windy days I have to hang onto the wheel tightly. I do not plan on off road traveling. To address this issue, I was thinking about purchasing these components and having a mechanic install them. 1. Hellwig Sway Bar 2. Sumo Springs – SSF-106-47 Front and SSR-338-54 Rear. Are the rear springs necessary? 3. Rear Fox Shocks 2.5 -OR- 1. Hellwig Sway Bar 2. Front Sumo Springs SSF-106-47 3. Rear Timbren SES Suspension Enhancement System MBRSP35A SES 4. Rear Fox Shocks 2.5 Would it be better to install each component one at a time? If so, what should be the purchased order? Agile Off Road in California (https://agileoffroad.com/rip-kit-mercedes-sprinter/#1564700152114-17e32dbe-fec6) has a package called Sprinter 3500 2WD RIP Kit – Starting at $3200 (plus installation). That’s more then I want to spend. Any recommendations/suggestions would be appreciated.
  5. Greetings, Has anyone driven SR-377 from Holbrook, AZ to Heber, AZ? We travel in a 25’ Class B and wonder about the road. We are looking at staying at Canyon Point Campground in Forest Lakes which is about 20 miles west of Heber on SR-260. Thanks, Connie
  6. After finding a Serenity to look at, we purchased a 2016 Leisure Travel Van, Serenity Model and are going through the motions of learning all about it. Any other Serenity owners out there?
  7. Hello, We are considering purchasing either a Coachman Galleria 24FL or a Leisure Travel Van, Model Serenity. At this point we would like to see those two vans to determine which one we might purchase. If you happen to have either of these vans and are in the Tucson area, would it be possible to come by and take a look? Thanks for your time. Connie
  8. Greetings, We are considering having the carpet replaced on the slideout in our fifth wheel. Has anyone had any recent experiences with using RV Renovators in Mesa, AZ? Thanks, Connie
  9. Thank you all for your replies, links and for insight onto how the Mountain Directory book works. Looks like we'll go the I-25 route.
  10. Greetings, We are heading from Albuquerque to Las Vegas, NM. Could anyone give me information on I-25 Glorietta Pass (% grade, length)? My Streets and Trips indicates a pass but Mountain Directory doesn’t mention anything about it. If I don’t go via I-25, is US 84 near Edgewood, NM an option? Thank you Connie
  11. We currently own a 2007 29-5E Arctic Fox, 32 foot (which has since been discontinued). We have had very good luck with it in our 10 years of full timing. I would suggest you check out the AF forum but I believe you need to pay a nominal fee to make posts and look at ALL the entries. You can look at only some of the posts. If you have specific questions, feel free to PM us.
  12. Hello, Can anyone recommend a free QR reader that is ad-free for my Samsung S7? Thanks, Art
  13. We just purchased an 8800L and were able to get the prepaid unlimited plan. We purchased the 8800L at a Verizon Corporate store ($200) and they handled getting the prepaid plan setup for us..
