Re: dust 'n cars

At the 2003 burn I covered all my windows with something dark (I forget what) and did some kind of taping and mostly stayed out of the car. It wasn't bad--in fact it stayed amazingly cool the whole time. But the hints in the thread make me think I can do even better. I taped space blankets (mylar) ...

Most RV generators turn at 1800 RPM...most portable contractor 5-12hp models turn at 3600 RPM, that's a lot of what makes them noisier. A trailer with an Onan genset underneath would be pretty nice. Thanks Tiahaar, I wasn't aware of the rpm difference. I was going to suggest that the quality of gen...

Oh damn, I forgot to mention that the longer the RV the smaller the trailer you'll be allowed to tow. If you plan on towing a trailer with an rv pick a shorter rv. Most rv's under 30' with a big block should be fine for towing a trailer. Those 34' rv's are just about to capacity unloaded. Check weig...

I had a similar predicament last year. We eventually went the used RV route because we don't have a big truck to pull a trailer. A couple other things that played into the decision were 1) The total length of a tow vehicle and trailer can far exceed the length of an rv. 2) We would not be able to to...

If you already own an RV then that's the way to go. You'll have many conveniences that tents just don't have. If you are thinking of renting an RV then I'd suggest you tent camp and decide how unbearable it is for you. I personally feel that it isn't worth $2k to rent one. Renting sucks for other re...
