Nice Bigfoot, Lora; for an '89 it shines! Lots of elbow grease paid off.
Bay View State Park is on our agenda for next year. It's a close by destination for our first trip in the newly renovated Compact II. Friends have recommended it as a pleasant camping experience.

Dwayne. Nice looking rig. Luv those Bigfoots. We too have been on gravel roads with our combo but nothing quite like your adventure.... This was at Algonquin park in northern Ontario, Canada.

What an awesome rig. What is that youíre towing it with, an Infiniti? What is the power? Looks like it pulls it easily. Whatís the trailerís weight? Nice.

Good day Dwayne...

Yes we use an 03 G35 as our TV. It has a 3.5 V6 with 260HP/260TQ. I really appreciate the over all performance and stability solo and when towing. It easily handles the 4,500lb trailer especially considering the total aerodynamics of the whole combo. You can see how well it accelerates here....

Note this is a pro set up by towing specialists Can AM. It has a custom made and installed class IV receiver/platform.

Our previous TV was a 150HP/180TQ Nissan Van. It too was a great TV but had notably less power with a 3.0v6 .

Thank you. Your reno looks great! Love the flooring.
I think Bay View was one of the best. There are two camping areas. To the left of the entry station are sites 1-8 or 9, we stayed in the two closest to the sound (very short walk to the beach and beautiful sunsets.) The rest of the sites are back in the woods, some are situated around a large central grassy area and some are in among the trees. A satellite view on google or yahoo maps gives a good idea. The staff are top-notch. Loved watching the sound almost completely empty at low tide.

New Scamp 13 Deluxe, Jan 9th pick up in Backus

We picked up our 2014 front bath Scamp 13 Deluxe Oak yesterday. ($15k) Check it out in the attached photo. Its now washed and safe in our garage after a 400 mile trip home. I took lots of pictures on the factory tour and will post them this weekend. A certified scale showed 1460 pounds on the tires and 230 pounds on the tongue making the total 1690 pounds with one full propane bottle and a group 27 battery. Pretty much all the options except awning and AC. No cargo or water aboard. Salesman said the deluxe wood adds 3-4 hundred pounds. Our 4cyl Outback performed very well towing. Trailer brakes seemed weak, but its probably my very old Prodigy controller. Will investigate and see if I can remember how to adjust it.

Now to get started on a full page list of mods. Details to follow in the coming weeks.

Keep warm, John and Jill

PS. Scamp salesman said over 65% of sales are the 13 footers. They have about a dozen trailers in stock.

Change your "RV" setting in user profile, you're no longer "in the market"
