RE: South rim Grand Canyon

Note that you'll want to check the Grand Canyon NPS website for current information. They just did a very limited opening last week (south entrance only, practically no services, limited viewpoints open, etc.) Already they just closed right now for three days, and website indicates to stay tuned for info about Memorial Day weekend. So things keep changing. I'd probably overnight on USFS land (or Ten-X campground, if open) just south of Tusayan.

RE: Bucket List Item on Ca-58

Me Again....I had to look up BFE. Do you mean it's beyond the middle of nowhere? Well, it's right along Hwy 58, which we have driven back and forth many many times over the years, even when it was the old 58. You may be driving up 14 through Lancaster rather than up 395 to catch 58. If so, you will miss Boron. Too bad (ha ha). It is bleak out there. That's why I just had to find something to do after umpteen trips across 58.

RE: Bucket List Item on Ca-58

Look up "Tehachapi Loop Overlook" on Google maps satellite view. Basically a wide spot in the road. That's where you would have to turn around...which you may or may not be able to. I wouldn't take the chance. We went there in our car. We also had it on our bucket list. Had driven by Tehachapi many many times. One time during an RV trip, we finally stopped for an overnight. We looked at the railroad loop, and also did a neat self-driving tour of the wind farm. You can find the tour online if you Google it. Gets you up close to the wind mills. Also, we ate at Keene Cafe, which I think might be the diner that DennisVR is referring to. Keep in mind that if you are just stopping for a quick look see, you may not get to see a train coming through...unless, of course, you know the train schedule. On another note...along 58...we had another bucket list item that we finally visited. That was the Borax Mine. There is a friendly little RV park in Boron. You can't tour the mine, but there is a great visitors center atop a hill with a good view of the mine. Also a fun little museum in town to visit. (Though maybe all closed now with the current situation.)

RE: Driving 89A (Arizona) from Bitter springs to Fredonia ?

ItsyRV...I don't think your understanding of the OP's question is the same as mine. teeznu...Please clarify...Do you just want to drive through from Bitter Springs to get to the other side of the mountain to Fredonia? If so, as suggested you have the choice of 89A or 89. Hwy 89A from Bitter Springs to Fredonia is doable. Just know that you will be climbing and then going down about 4,500 ft. Some fairly easy switchbacks, but I believe you will be on the mountain side. Use your gears, don't expect to win any races. Hwy 89 from Bitter Springs to Page, Big Water, Kanab is definitely an easier drive. Just a pull up the mountain from Bitter Springs, but shorter, less elevation change and easier than the uphill on 89A. The rest is an easy drive.

RE: Best way to sell?

Thank you for the info about the $5 fee for Craigslist vehicle sales. I haven't sold a vehicle for quite awhile. I see the fee on their website now. rgatijnet1, I like your idea about the tires. One might throw in new batteries too. Offering to pay for a couple nights in a nearby campground is a great idea also.

RE: Best way to sell?

I've used craigslist successfully several times both selling and buying. It's free, so why not try it? Just use common sense and intuition to watch out for scammers. Put plenty of details and pictures in your ad.

RE: Field Walk

Love it! Thank you! We like to see and visit farms on our RV trips.

RE: Leaving out of Gold Canyon, Which way to Flagstaff?

Use Google Maps to route the trip. Then change to Bicycle mode (icons across the top). Scroll to bottom of text directions and you'll see an elevation graph. Look at both routes. (Note...this is on computer, not phone app which I don't know if the same display.) I often try to take different sections of route on our trips around the U.S. where we've been before. As others note, just be sure to check the weather and road conditions before you or call 511 for road conditions/closures.

RE: Wonderful campground

I remember some years ago driving by that campground along Hwy 145. I thought to myself that someday I want to come back and stay there. Unfortunately, I haven't made it back yet. But thanks for reminding me :)

RE: Apache Junction, AZ Internet

Yes, our park is hard wired underground to each lot. I suppose that was put in years and years ago. Up to each lot owner if they want to connect with Mediacom. If your park does not have that infrastructure, I imagine it would be costly to install.

RE: Apache Junction, AZ Internet

We use Mediacom in AJ for internet and cable TV. Probably not any cheaper than any other provider.

RE: Utah route from Torrey to Bryce Canyon ?

I had to look up 17. Looks like a dirt road to me. Pretty sure everyone takes 12 all the way.

RE: Traveling with a tailbone injury

Has she tried reclining the seat? (if it can be reclined) That helped my spouse. Lots of us have had to adjust our method of RVing over the years. Yours may involve shortening your driving days and stopping more often to stretch your legs and relieve the tailbone.

RE: North east Ohio to So Cal.

Yes, join the Elks! We've stayed at many Elks Lodges across the country. Just stayed at Erie, PA last Sept. There are a couple lodges with RV sites just north of L.A. Again, if you could be more specific about where in the L.A. and Santa Barbara areas you are going to visit (Disneyland?), people could make campground suggestions.

RE: Newbie to do first outing

I use Good Sam Roadside Assistance. Have had several positive experiences with them. Couldn't tell you which service is best. But I will say that before you make your decision, be sure to find out how far they will tow, whether they will cover motorhomes or just towables (Good Sam has different memberships for each), if they will tow you only to "nearest service provider" or anywhere that you want, and how many service calls per year (if there is a limit).

RE: Overnight stops (truck stops, etc) with shore power?

Last year, I stayed at one rest area on the Ohio Turnpike mentioned by DrewE. Also stayed at two gas stations (one in IL and one in MI) that had RV sites with electric.

RE: North east Ohio to So Cal.

Where are you planning to visit in L.A. county and Santa Barbara county? Do you happen to be an Elks member? I know of a couple Elks lodges that have RV sites. You'll definitely need reservations at Grand Canyon and anyplace in CA. What does your son want to do in the Phoenix oven in July? Not a good time to RV there. You'll want to run your A/C 24/7 and that may not even keep up with the heat.

RE: Sedona to Moab and all points in between

Busskipper's route is an excellent one. Adding a few sites to your list...of course, there is the Grand Canyon. Walnut Canyon, Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments all around Flagstaff (east side). Maybe a stop at Cameron Trading Post along Hwy 89 on the way north to Page. After Capitol Reef NP, Goblin Valley State Park is north of Hanskville off 24. If for some reason you don't want to take that route, alternatively you could drive east on I-40, stop at Walnut Canyon NM, Winslow to "stand on the corner", Petrified Forest NP. Then drive north on 191, stop at Hubbell Trading Post in Ganado, and then to Canyon de Chelly NM in Chinle.

RE: Sedona AZ help with RV park suggestions

Rancho Sedona RV Park is the only one actually in Sedona....nice, treed, by the creek, pricey. Dead Horse Ranch State Park in Cottonwood would be second choice for me. Click on "RV Parks" at the top of this website, and type in Sedona. You'll see a list of other good options in the Verde Valley. Distant Drums by the casino and I-17, Verde Ranch very new also by I-17 in Camp Verde, Rain Spirit in Clarkdale also pretty new looks nice with nice surrounding view.

RE: From Oregon:Suggestions on routes & camps from Hurricane Ut ???

Would help to know which route you are taking south at the beginning of your trip, so suggestions don't repeat that. Hwy 395 in CA is a very nice and scenic RV route...Alabama Hills, Mt. Whitney, Mammoth, June Lake Loop, Mono Lake tufas, east side entrance to Yosemite, etc.
