  1. I joined right after towables were allowed and have never regretted it. My wife and I have no health problems, but one time I was unexpectedly rushed to the hospital with internal bleeding. I can only imagine what that would have been like if we were traveling somewhere. Assist gives us peace of mind. In addition, I get much better prices on the Road Assistance as well, much cheaper than Coachnet.
  2. Thanks for making me feel young! I'm the old guy at work. 😁 I'm trying to tell as many as I can about FMCA. Hopefully the goals of opening membership to towables will be met.
  3. I saw one of the Grand Design travel trailers a couple of weeks ago while camping in Tennessee. They really look nice, at least from the outside. Their fifth wheels have a good reputation.
  4. I'm one of the "towable" members who joined once we were allowed. I'm 59 and still working, but I don't think that qualifies me as "younger". 😀 Compared to other organizations like Good Sam (which I am also a member of), FMCA is still a great value at $75. The FMCA Assist program is a fantastic deal, and the price on the road assistance plan is great compared to other offerings like Coachnet. I hope when people step back and consider the value, they will reconsider their decision to leave.

    Retiring

    Congratulations! I will join you in 851 days. 😀
  6. In addition, the tendency of some manufacturers to provide tires rated barely above the dry weight of the camper is a big contributor. My camper had about a 30% margin above the GVWR and my cheap China tires were fine. I did eventually replace them with the Carlisle Radial Trail tires which have been excellent, and also made in China.
  7. Trailer Village within the Grand Canyon is the closest. We loved it there. There are some nice campgrounds in Williams but that is an hour or so away, and one or two closer, but still outside of the park. Staying at Trailer Village allows you to stay within the park and use the bus system; which has a bus stop right at the entrance to the campground.
  8. Ruby's campground just outside of Bryce is nice. I think you could plan on at least 2 full days there to enjoy it. We stayed 4, and filled them all.
  9. Saw Cherry Hill and had to chime in. I grew up in Cherry Hill and my wife is from Merchantville. We live in Clermont, FL now. My wife retired from Disney a couple of years ago at 55 and we often stay at Fort Wilderness. Love the Wilderness Lodge and especially the Iron Spike room at the villas. If you haven't tried the Geyser Point Bar and Grill yet be sure to try it on your next trip. The crab cake sandwich is delicious.
  10. At Moab, we've stayed at Spanish Trail Campground ( https://spanishtrailrvpark.com )and liked it. It is convenient to Arches and Canyonlands. At Capitol Reef, we were looking at Wonderland RV Park in Torrey, but we had to cancel. http://www.capitolreefrvpark.com Ruby's is nice near Bryce ( https://www.brycecanyoncampgrounds.com ) Don't know what to tell you for Zion. I know there are some that are supposed to be pretty good, but I haven't been to any of them.
  11. We enjoy September. We stayed at Moab and really enjoyed taking our time through Arches and Canyonlands (Island in the Sky section). Spectacular scenery. Also really enjoy Bryce and Zion. Need to get to Capitol Reef sometime.
  12. Well said. Same can be said for the combination of my truck and travel trailer.
