    I've got a 2003 sprinter and I've been building a camper into it for a couple years now. Before that we had a tdi powered vanagons westfalia, and before that my wife and I lived In a21' motorhome for 6.5 years. I'll never be without a motorhome/camper van for the rest of my life!

    Nice Ultralite... how's that working out for you? I think that would be OK on the back of my Touareg TDI.

    Heres our trailer. Towed by an 07 Tahoe Was the wifes Idea. My first thought was. We'll never use it. That was a couple of months and 5 trips ago. Incl the 30th Fat Anniversary

    We're looking at picking up a small class C.. I think we've narrowed it down to a 2003 Greyhawk, although the brand new Coachmen Freelander 21QB is something to drool over, just crazy expensive...

    what's the best place you've all been so far in the RV? We recently moved from VA to OH for work and are looking to explore the west coast more, now that we're 8 hours closer!

    If you moved from VA to OH, I'd still say best bet is WV. I personally like Davis as I can park for 3 days and not have to drive to get to trails.

    Out west though, I first decided I wanted my own rv after borrowing my mom's class c for a trip to Moab (from CA at the time). After traveling with either my mom's class c or my own truck camper to camp and ride in Tahoe, Bend, Downieville, Moab, Fruita/grand junction, , golden, St. George, Sedona, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Austin, Asheville/Brevard, Douthat (va), Harrisonburg (VA), rays town lake (pa) and Michaux (pa).... Certainly, my favorite trail riding was Tahoe with the Moab and Fruita/ grand junction area a very close second.

    Tahoe (multiple trips) was tough to find a good centralized camp spot that felt like I wasn't camping in a mall parking lot. But im set up to never need to be at a campground...so i prefer free/primitive/dispersed camping. The best camping and trail riding I had was Gooseberry Mesa near St George or Hurricane. 2 consecutive years I was up there just before christmass camped essentially at the trail head and saw only one or two other vehicles up there as the road up can be sketchy in the winter. That is one of the reasons I have a pop up truck camper on a 4x4 pickup ( I can still take hot showers and have heat for a couple of days totally off the grid without towing a trailer). I actually posted a pic of my rig on gooseberry after a light snowfall earlier in this thread.

    Anyway, most all of the places I've been, I couldn't ride for more than 2 days without repeating trails unless I was willing to drive. While not as scenic as out west and not as flowy as some other places, Davis, WV has been a good all around compromise. I can ride hard for three consecutive days without feeling like im riding the same stuff, camp for free by the river or pay at a pretty decent state park, ride (pedal) into town for a burrito or pizza and beer...all without driving or being driven anywhere once you get there. Downieville, CA is close in that sense, you just have to get a seat on one of the shuttles...and the riding there is just flat out more amazing than anything I've ridden on the east coast.

    No more cold, wet tents for me. We have an Outdoors RV Backcountry 18F trailer. Pull it with an F150 with the 5.3L triton and tow package. Nothing like hot showers, cold beer and a comfy bed after a long day of riding.

    Looking forward to trips to Oakridge, McKenzie River, and Bend this summer (from our home base in Hood River).

    If ever you're in Elkhart, Indiana, plan a few hours to see this. Yeah, it's at the top of the geeky scale, but if you're into RVs you'll love it. The older items are the coolest --- Model A pick-up RVs, Mae West's Pierce Arrow and more.

    Mind boggling, I cannot find any Bluebirds that site, am I missing something? The Wanderlodge kicks the crap outta almost every motorhome out there for two at least two decades. They finally went downhill beginning in the 90s, but if someone wants the safest motorhome out there, it's a Wanderlodge.

    Here's mine, back in a wild ice storm of Winter 2004:

    And if you are in Amarillo check out the RV Museum there.

    Nice rig. I don't think Wanderlodge went downhill as much as so many others went uphill and caught up or surpassed them.

    Here is our Freelander 21QB while at Crater Lake this past October. We spent the last 4 months road tripping around the West and it worked out great.

    My set up (not an RV but it works well for me)
    Here's what I'm rollin on my 09' Tacoma. It's an Adventure Trailers Flip-Pac w/3 led lights and 6 12v interior outlets. IBS Dual battery system. Adventure Trailers combo slide w/ Natl. Luna weekender split fridge/freezer and a partner steel 2 burner stove. Adventure trailers composite drawers. The shell weighs 290 lbs. and it deploys and breaks down in about 30 seconds. I love it, and I use it often!!! So I figured I'd show it here as an option for others. :thumbsup:

    Sean Salach, I've sorted your link up and down:
    United States Energy Usage

    I'm not seeing much of any relationship to climate and carbon footprint in the USA. It doesn't matter much in my view. For one thing I freely admit that people around me are wasteful and uncaring ("yee-haw"), but so are reserved Vermonters. Secondly, and most tragically, we're all getting a little warmer because of what we're all doing with coal-burning power plants and auto exhaust, no matter where we live.

    I see rankings in carbon footprint (#1 being worst)
    1. Texas
    2. California
    3. Pennsylvania
    4. Ohio
    5. Florida
    6. Indiana
    7. Illinois
    8. New York
    9. Michigan
    10. Louisiana

    I see per captia carbon output (#1 being worst):
    1. Vermont
    2. Rhode Island
    3. New York
    4. Idaho
    5. California
    6. Oregon
    7. Connecticut
    8. Washington
    9. Massachusetts
    10. New Jersey
