  • Just an update on the last post. The vet feels both dogs will be ok. We were able to bring our Aussie back with us. The Vet warned us to watch for any changes in him. The other dog was put on IV’s

    Just to let anyone with dogs or cats …We stopped for our first night on the road at willow springs road just north of Moab Utah. Our Aussie got pretty sick. Took him into Moab Vet clinic. The Vet said this is the second case in two days. He said he was worried somebody was throwing something out for the dogs. His words not ours. Both cases…[Read more]

  • Just wondering on how everyone is dealing with the weight limits on their outfits. Not the trucks. Ours is 3,000 lbs. Heck the razor (Polaris side by side) and the water weight takes a big chunk of that for sure. I really don’t want to leave the wife home. We thought about taking the 5th wheel over to a truck stop and see if they will weigh…

    • LOL We are in the same boat drove by a few cat scale and just closed my eyes and keep going.
      We are still downsizeing trying to get the weight down.

    • If you see a “closed” weigh station, they usually leave their scales active. You can drive onto them and weigh. Just don’t go in there when they are open. And watch out for truckers…even when closed.

      • I have seen the closed station before but didn’t know they left the scales on. Great idea, thank you. We aren’t even on the road yet. Signed off on the house yesterday and leave tues. Wow…………………..

        • I remember the end of our first week in the trailer. We were both ready to toss in the towel. We were tripping over each other, the place looked like we had rolled the trailer two or three times….it was just horrible. But then things started to find their place, we learned to put stuff away and work around each other, etc. And now we love…[Read more]

    • And the truck stop will weigh anyone if you are willing to pay the $10 or $20. Just don’t go in there if there is a lot of truck traffic on the scales….

      • I have used the truckers scales before when I needed a weight for a couple of cows I had. The people running the scales are pretty helpful. Just drive on the scale and they will tell you what to do over a loud speaker. Then just drive off. Thanks for the replies.

    • The cat scale by me charges 8.50 per axle.
      A state dot scale i tried was off by 2000 pounds. maybe they locked the scale when they were not there?

    • I use CAT Scales at truck stops all the time to weigh the RV. They don’t mind at all.

    • We just got a bigger “Tow Vehicle”!
    • We had our Vanleigh weighed by RVSEF. They use a set of scale like racing teams use. It weighs each individual wheel. This way you can see how your load is distributed.

  • That is the reason my wife wants a flame thrower installed on the front of our truck.

  • I know this has to be a greenhorn mistake but.  When I tap on a notification (like I did with Jeff) it disappeared.  Can I get these back so I can read them?

  • Well after reading the downsizing fun everyone is having.  I don’t feel so bad.  We finally sold out and getting rid of just about everything.  The kids won’t let the grand kids come over without them.  We filled their pockets with everything we could.  Neighbors wave but tell us they don’t want anything either.   We are heading out in a few weeks…[Read more]

    We sold our home of 15 yrs and have one week left to finish moving everything into storage. We purchased a 39ft Momentum toy hauler 5th wheel. We are both retired and I think (ready?) for all this. As soon as the tumbleweed wagon is loaded we are heading out.
