Pull through sites are for the large RVs. Most private RV parks have laundry facilities (coin operated) as do a fairly small number of state parks. National campgrounds normally have no hookups or laundry or shower facilities. If you're age 62 or above you can buy a "geezer pass." The government calls it a senior pass which sells for $10 and is good for life. Must be a U.S. citizen to be eligible. It allows free admission to national parks, historical sites, etc and 1/2 price camping at most federal campgrounds. Or you can spend $50 to join Passport America which is good for a year and participating private campgrounds/RV parks for 1/2 price. Each individual park sets conditions for itself only. There is a website for it which you can google.

I have found that many of the state, national parks and some private campground (providing they allow tenters) do have some type of dish washing station that you can use. Some though just have a central water supply and grated pit for dumping your dish water.

Hi Bob & Grace,

Hubby will be eligable for the "Geezer Pass" next year. Thanks for the info.!

What I meant about kitchens was more along these lines - rows of big sinks just to do dishes : (we have coin-operated laundries here too)

Yup some of the bigger parks have them - the dry camping section at Death Valley National park has a nice big set up like that. - they did have coin laundry as well. You will not find coin laundry at most of the state parks though - most private places do have it though.

Dethleffs - Welcome to Dethleffs!

Since you published the Dethleffs site, I'm going to publish another site for a real cute little European egg-shaped TT called the Eriba Puck (made by Hymer). I love these little campers - we almost bought one, but then saw our little Dethleffs and knew it was perfect for us. We see a lot of these little Eriba Puck's all over at campgrounds. Thought you'd get a kick out of seeing it!

Welcome to the UK Eriba Forum - Please Read This

While we're looking at cute trailers, don't forget the Knaus Schwalbennest.

Knaus Schwalbennest

Great design and cabinetry even in an extremely small trailer.

But it's not and egg...

While the Eriba is not fiberglass, we frequently discuss them or have them posted for sale here. And there are lots of VW fans on this site, even a thread or two talking about redoing VW tugs.

Count me as one. We won a tall, tacky trophy when we entered our previous fiberglass camper, our Burro, in a VW show with our Eurovan. Our Uhaul has blue highlights to match our VW single cab pickup if we ever get it running.

Thanks for the link.

Jo, Thank you for the link to Eriba. All my motorcycle friends will find it interesting.

Would you please tell us if your trailer has a torsion bar suspension?\

Thanks

Hi Norm & Ginny, Good question. My hubby, who is the "technical one" of the two of us says he doesn't know. He looked on-line to see if he could find any info., but says it will have to wait until the next time we go over to the TT. He says it has an "ALCO stabilizer" on the hitch, which keeps the TT from swaying. I'll let you know, once we find out!

Dan, we see lots of Knaus TT's here - they are very common. The little ones sure are cute! I don't know if there are any FG travel trailers over here. Haven't seen any.
