  1. Although not exactly your travel route, our travels were in the opposite direction taking us from NM to Springdale/Fayetteville, Arkansas. After traveling I-40 from NM, when we got near Oklahoma City, we traveled the John Kilpatrick Tpke north of Oklahoma City to the Turner Tpke (I-44) to Cherokee Tpke (Hwy 412) into Springdale, Arkansas. It may be a bit out the way for you if you are heading directly to New Mexico. You’d have to pick up I-540 to get to the Cherokee Tpke.
  2. Looking to travel from Fayetteville, Arkansas to Mountain View, Arkansas. Looking for feedback on the route suggested by the RV park. Route would be 412==> 65==>66. We have a 25' motorhome, no toad. Not familiar at all with Arkansas roads. Thanks, Connie
  3. Although not in Oakland, Alameda Country Fairgrounds in Pleasanton might be a place to check. Lockaway Storage in Castro Valley might be another option.
  4. We've stayed at Casa Grande RV Park and Resort. Many RVers, many of them being from Canada, stay for the 3 month season (Jan, Feb, March). The park has added a number of small "cottages" as you enter the park but the park is primarily set up for RVers (no park models yet). There are a few RVers that stay year round. Roads are paved; sites on gravel. Two pools, a spa, and some planned activities during non-Covid time. A couple of pickleball courts. Frys Grocery store just down the street. Some highway noise but not unbearable. We've only stayed at the park a week at a time but would rec

  6. I am selling my GMC truck (private selling). I've posted a listing on Craigslist and this forum. What other method or online websites have you used and could recommend. Thanks, Art

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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 SS
  12. 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
  13. 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?
