    December 24, 2019So the hubby and I love boondocking on National Forest Land, however we have a lot of trepidation turning down those dirt roads. What if we can't find a place to turn around? What if we get stuck??? How do you guys handle that??? We are towing a 27 fo...  more

      Mr. W & Dancing Bear December 24, 2019 The best thing to do, but not the easiest, is to find a spot to unhitch and drive down the road without the trailer. When you rehitch you likely won't need the sway bars for the trek up the road. That's what we do.

      Beans and I on the Loose December 25, 2019 I don’t tow a trailer. I have a small class C RV. I have had to back out in reverse as much as two miles getting out of some places I should never had gotten into in the first place. I’d follow Dancing Bear’s advice if I were you.

      Suzan and Art December 25, 2019 Sometimes google maps will give you a good idea of what is ahead.  If not, as with Dancing Bear, we unhitch our 30' fifth wheel and check it out.

        Beans and I on the Loose December 25, 2019 You cannot trust what you see on Google Maps. They won't show deeply rutted roads, downed trees or other hidden surprises.

      Blue Haze December 25, 2019 If you look at freecampsites.net or campendium.com you can usually find some reviews that will give you an idea of what vehicles will/will not work for most spots in NFL.  You may have to read a bit and make sure you see photos and multiple comments ...  more

      Royce December 26, 2019 I don't like to unhitch, so will pull over and park where I can turn around and walk from there.  I usually find a spot to turn around in.  One time I found an inconsiderate camper in the turn around spot and diagonal across the road, blocking a...  more

      Judith & Mark December 27, 2019 I always go on Google Maps satellite view and see what it looks like.  Not perfect, but have a good idea of what I'm facing, where I could turn around, etc.

      Cinn December 27, 2019 Don't trust Google Maps. Even in satellite view you can't really tell elevations. Areas that look like good turnarounds on the map, may actually be on the side of a very steep hill! (Ask me how I know)

        MargoD December 27, 2019 Doesn't seem like there are any great answers....just part of the adventure I guess!!
        Thank you for the suggestions!

      JustCallUsNomads December 29, 2019 We just upgraded from a small Class C to a 33' fifth wheel, and we're anticipating having the same issues when we get back on the road. Considering investing in an electric bike to use for scouting trips, but we'll see.

      DD Darcy January 24, 2020 Yes I want an elect bike too. For just that. We are more like 36 so we don’t do that venturing around dirt roads. You could look at comments on compendium. We want to go one near Salida because get away gang on YouTube did in a bigger rig I believe it’s...  more
