Just got back Sat. night. All seven of us (myself, wife, 4 grand sons and 1 grand daughter) with a 16' Scamp
. Left Ky and stopped at St. Louis Arch, Pikes Peak, Grand Canyon, Bryce Canyon, Tetons, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Badlands to name a few. We got on the AAA dotted roads once we got in the area and we saw an awful lot. What a great country we have!
Could not have had better weather. Only hot the first night in St Louis and never cold enough to have a heater.
Several times set up a tent for the 4 boys but most of the time they slept together in the back of the Suburban while the wife and I and grand daughter slept in the Scamp
. Worked out real well.
Glad to have the DVD player in the truck for the long haul thru Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and the like where there was not much to entertain them but we had a blast! Lots of work to keep them fed and somewhat clean but I don't think they'll ever forget this trip. Now it's time to rest at work. Took over 700 pictures and several hours of movies and hope to post some later.
Happened upon Beaver Lake campground near Mt. Rushmore and spent two nights. Owner told me that there had been a gathering of Casitas there a few months ago. Nice place.
and truck worked almost flawlessly through all the bumpy roads. One big complaint. That bed is just not big enough for two tall people. Hate to do it but thinking we be looking for a Casita
for more bed width.
Also one question--- what causes one of my bearings to be throwing grease out on the wheel? Do I have a bad seal? How do I tell? As I understand, there are two seals. I have Al-ko axle
. Still--- made it home just fine and not much considering the abuse we gave it. Now it's time to clean.
