Stu Beans is always late to the party, lol

With Sanford in mind...I would look at Oak Hammock Fish Camp (although not sure how long a stay they allow), and that has full hookups and sits on a great lake. You can always go fancy in the same area and look at Resorts at Canopy Oaks or Camp Margaritaville, but both will be expensive (but its nice to have a bar and live music!). I have tours of those three on our channel (playlist link below)

We just started our camping season this past weekend, and checked out Key Lime RV resort, which is 10. miles from our house...had to see it and get footage (should be done editing soon), and then in Dec, we're checking out Surf RV resort, down in Palmetto. None of these are rustic, these are new, fancy, and certainly more expensive than state parks. The upside is they usually have space. You probably already know its hard as heck to get any state park space without booking 11 months out.

You can also check out the lesser known spots in Withlacoochee State Forest (not part of the state park reservation systems), if that is not far out of your way. Those have elec/water and dump stations, and I have tours of those on our channel (Cypress Glen, Silver Lake, Holder Mine) on

This is the forest booking site -

If you want to email me your prospective dates and preferred travel route, I can try to help further.

All the best,

This really falls into the 'why didnt I think of this sooner categories'. Mesh tarp from Harbor Freight (30 bucks), light clips from Amazon (10 bucks), some tent stakes and done. Here's the quick video...

We went to the Tampa RV show earlier this week and focused on the 'more aluminum' first stop was Intech to see the Terra Oasis. Here is the footage of the walkthrough -

I also asked about Scott Tuttle. He's still there....they're designing a fifth wheel....and i was told he opened a restaurant!

in my rig, i have a 32 TCL smart roku tv (cheap, but good!) which i connect to my iphone for internet access. Since my signal is not always strong enough (even with the weeboost), my alternatives are:
1 - downloaded movies to my usb drive
2- stream from iphone to TV via physical adapter cable.

For sound, I use a bluetooth transmitter, which I then connect to a bluetooth speaker, where I can move that around anywhere in the camper. I can also connect that same transmitter to bluetooth earbuds, for when I watch TV at night, but the sound wont bother my wife.

pretty spot !
I had an opportunity to walkthrough both the 2015 game changer and the 2816 game changer pro this week at the 2022 tampa rv show. These are fricken amazing.

2816 -
2015 -

A Small privately owned campground on Lake Pierce. Excellent if you like fishing or kayaking on a lake. Very quiet. Cabins for your non-rv'ing friends. Super nice owners. 30 minutes from Disney stuff.

Our video tour and review, including an interview with the owners -

have a great trip !
This is our second (of three available in FLA) camping trip to a COE designed campsite, St Lucie South Campground, in Stuart FL. The only thing missing is lots of shade.

Here's our little wacky video, along with a bike ride tour through the campgrounds. Also our first trip since bringing home the 21rbs.

Happy Camping!

Sold on 7/17. There was a lot of hugging and smooching before she left.

Stu1965, a member of this forum, may have one for sale. I sold it to him about a year ago but he has decided to upgrade to a 21 and his 2013 16TBS may be for sale. It is a sofa model, but Shop4seats and others have dinette packages (two opposing seats and a table) that should fit well and cost less than $1,000. The current sofa is mounted on a movable slide out platform, so all you have to do is unbolt the sofa and bolt on the dinette. Just check the side to side seat dimensions and make sure it will fit on the platform.

I suspect Stu will respond to this post shortly whether it is for sale or not.

I'd like to know what TPMS you buy.  After getting the flat tire a week ago I am suddenly interested in the idea of getting a TPMS but not sure what the best option is.  Possibly Tire Minder but it is a bit expensive.... (Not that damage from a blowout isn't, of course)....

I went middle of the road (price wise) on these Tireminders. So far (500 miles ish) so good. No issues, seem accurate compared to pressure gauge.
that spare tire nearly throat chopped me when putting it on underneath yesterday. It really sucked to do it alone. This is one of the few times I was happy i had a 'post covid belly' to help hold it up when screwing it back up. I dread getting a flat right now, new tires or not.
