    January 31When is the best time to make plans for a trip to Alaska? Do we need to make reservations a year in advance like in Florida or are they easier to get? We will probably be leaving from Kansas.

      Hank & Shirleen January 31 Been the twice, never made any reservations easy in advance. That being said in busy area we would call and make reservations 1-3 days in advance while up there. Now Denali is a different story. If you are up there in early June you can probably get reser...  more

      Dick Kashdin January 31 That is a loaded question like when is the best time to retire or the best time to go full time.  But there are some things that should be taken into account.  (1) How much time is involved.  Our round trip to Alaska and back took about 3 m...  more

      Birdie February 1 I would say if you want to stay at the top campground within Denali NP you should make your reservation as far ahead as you can. Many people enjoy staying there and it is mostly full. Check out the camping amenities so you go in ready. We only stayed 3 ni...  more

        xctraveler February 1 As I remember, the furthest in campground in Denali is on a lottery and once you get in to the campground you are required to not move your vehicles at all for the 3 day stay. The shuttle stops there and you get passes good for the duration of your stay o...  more

        Hank & Shirleen February 1 It wasn’t on a lottery in 2016 and we have heard no changes.  The Campground is Teklanika and is about 30 miles in. They stop you at about 15 miles in unless you have the campground reservations.  The only lottery we have heard about Is to be ab...  more

      Birdie February 3 It wasn’t on lottery when I went. It was reservation only. But if someone cancelled or was a no show you might get that spot. The shuttle was the best way to travel and see stuff. There were lots of hikers in most of the park. As the stupid folks did stup...  more

      Eric and Kathy January 17 Don't know if this helps, but we tow a 6,500 lb trailer with our 2013 Expedition. No problems in 4 years of RVing. It has a 5.4L, but it's a short wheelbase and seems to handle fine. I can go up to 9,100 lbs, although I wouldn't want to try it. Safe Travels.

      Tom and Pat Gutzke January 26 While the truck can tow 13,200 pounds, a bumper hitch can NOT tow that much.  I would check with a bumper hitch company [maybe U-Haul?] and ask them what the maximum trailer weight would be if they attached a bumper hitch to your truck.You might he b...  more

        Tom and Pat Gutzke January 26 I should add that our first RV was a Bethany pop-up that did not have a refrigerator or bathroom or awning. It's weight [loaded] was under 3,000 pounds and I towed it with a car. Never had a problem in the 2+years we had it.

      M&J Forest River January 29 Thank you all for you're responses.  Ended up purchasing a 2018 Ram 2500 Crew-cab Diesel.  Towing capacity is a whopping 17,280 lbs so we are set to go.

    January 13Stick to the southern route, I-10 til you get to 17 north out of Jacksonville then head north along the coastal routes, 17- 13 , then it depends on where you want to go in New York, that way you will avoid the mountains and snow

      Creek RV Park. Its small, on the bank of the creek, short walk from town and operated by the City of Golden.

      COmedlin (Steve & Karen) January 13 There is also a nice state park, Golden Gate Canyon, but they only have electric hookups and you cannot make reservations until 6 months prior to your arrival date.

      SouthParkSteve January 13 I will second the vote for Clear Creek, although it IS in a very busy town park.

    January 13Heading east to NY from Phoenix soon in our 36' Allegro with toad and want to avoid the steep incline of 17 North to catch I40 in Flagstaff. Other than I10 east to I25 north to I40, does anyone have a recommendation (hopefully this route is less "steep")....  more

      Ray Zimmermann January 13 I always take Highway 87 through Payson and then 260 and 177 to hit I-40 at Holbrook. There are some steep grades on 87 but overall distance is shorter. And again, check the weather before you go. Other than that I think your only other option is I-10 to I-25.

      Gone_Feral January 13 I don't know why anyone would want to travel east on 40 this time of year. It's a dangerous route through brutal winter terrain. Go south and you will miss all of that.

      xctraveler January 13 Campgrounds in the Northeast don't even start opening until mid April. There are some "all weather" campgrounds, but very few. Be aware that snow and freezing weather are possible through March and into April on I 40 through OK and on to NY. We have drive...  more
