The worst part about owning a camper...

12 posts in this topic

Is I cant take my boat with me when we go camping. I know you can tow a secondary trailer with a 5th wheel, but I'm not quite ready for that....

I know gas prices suck, but take 2 vehicles

Strap a canoe on top of the tow vehicle. I know a canoe isn't as nice as the boat, but it will get you on the water.

How about renting a boat in the area once you get there?

I think canoe would be your best bet, just bring a trolling motor along to speed it up a little. Or one of those blowup boats, personally never fished out of one of those before.

A canoe, kayak or float tube could possibly be some options.

When we needed, we use a 14-foot Sears cartopper and push it around with 5.5 Johnson.

We see alot of people at our camp ground with two vehicles one for the boat and one for the camper.

I would guess with gas prices the number we see will go down.

We did the jon boat thing for a couple of years it worked good on the smaller lakes.

Do a search on Doevetail Loading Systems. They make a loader that will allow you to load and unload a Lund WC14 or similar on your truck.

Pulling the camper boat combo isn't that tough, just make sure if there is a chance you will have to back up, that you pull in straight. Once you go to the combo you'll never look back (no pun intended)

    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
